Landing Page: Faerie Apocalypse

Faerie Apocalypse

Although an apocalypse and a half feature strongly in the timeline of the fae-apoc setting, most of the stories are set either well before or well after the event.

A dark urban fantasy series, Faerie Apocalypse is set in the modern world. The Ellehemaei fae, halfbreed bastards of beings from another plane who left more than two millennia ago, live hidden among the humans; many have faded into humanity, exhibiting nothing more than a rare psychic quirk, while their more powerful cousins hide their inhumanity behind glamours called Masks. A dark underworld of faerie and human trafficking underlies much of the setting.

The apocalypse, brought on by a return of the prodigal gods, leaves the world’s population, governments, infrastructure, and technology devastated, its humans struggling to survive, its fae in hiding from the unforgiving remnants of humanity.

Addergoole is a school in the faerie apocalypse universe, as well as a subsetting and the name of the web-serial set there. Teenagers sent away to boarding school learn that, not only is the school not what they expected, but neither they nor their parents are either. Fifty years later, they struggle to continue existing in the post-apoc world that wants nothing to do with their ilk. The Addergoole landing page is here (LJ).

Doomsday is a school built in that post-apoc by a former Addergoole graduate.

          1. You can make ebooks of novel or novella length of just Addergoole stuff. I am not sure you have hit that volume for the rest. So big is good!

      1. Oh right. I have added the addergoole LJ but was wondering about an RSS of the full text on your website rather than the truncated text with link on the LJ account. I will persevere reading on the website using readability.com – serif fonts give me a migraine.

        1. aaah, I see. no, I don’t use a full RSS because I get the income to pay for advertising from the ads on the side. I apologize for the serif issue; I hadn’t even considered that 🙁 (you should have seen the acid teal the background was when I started!)

          1. It is okay – I have worked out how to make Firefox only ever use Sans Serif fonts! Also, P.S., I don’t think there are many weirdos like me that get migraines from serif fonts… ;-p

          2. That is pretty awesome! Um. If you are new to Addergoole, I can just suggest you read the trigger warnings in the “about” page; Book six gets a bit rough.

          3. I started reading it a while ago but am starting again now from lack of memory. I will check out the About page – thanks!

          4. Cool cool. 😀 Also, I get migraines from all sorts of weird things. Today I got one in the middle of Home Depot!

  1. Путешествовал в Интернете и попал сюда. Какое замечательное изобретение человечества. При помощи сети общаешься, изучаешь, читаешь… Вот и с вами познакомился.
