You are beautiful, trained in art and music.
You are deadly, trained in the unique weapons that no one except you can use.
You are dying. Kept alive by the very same thing that keeps you save from others abusing their power over you…
You have no rights. But you can do whatever you want, even kill, without having to fear any consequences.
You are the most pleasant death that anyone can wish for.
You are an artwork. And all you are supposed to be is look pretty, show of your owners wealth.
But oh, you could become so much more…
You play as a highly specialised trained entertainer… an Artwork, expensive companion to the rich and noble ones in Aklant, a country with rigid rules and unspoken laws, strict class divide and obsessed with anything that shows how rich they are… or at least let them appear rich. Artworks themselves are outside of this all, freed from all those social chains, but not seen as human… maybe its time to change that? Or leave the status quo as it is, up to you!
Genre: Low Fantasy.
Important: I am working full time, updates wont come fast! English isnt my first language.
The TW, its there for a reason!
What to expect of the story so far:
Frequent changes, as there are still some parts that I will rewrite later.
-Genderselectable MC: cis male or female, play as a castrato.
-Academie: choose one of four unique Academies, each with another focus: medicine, fighting, assassination, devoution.
What not to expect:
-quick updates. I am working full time, this means I have not much free time.
Plus I have ADHD. English isnt my first language.
What I am looking for, feedback:
-Grammar and spelling mistakes. English isnt my first language and I have a hard time writing in it, so there are probably tons of grammatical errors! I would be thankful for everyone who would point them out. I am trying to write in british english, but my school thought american and british english so I may mix it up.
-Wording and writing in general. Are sentences too wordy or just weird to read? Too many choices?
-Contrary: is there anything that sticks out as really well done or nice?
-Code: unless there is a gamebreaking error I am learning this as I go, and as long as its working this isnt my priority.
