Constants in change

Lost memories and unforgotten emotions

Care to join me?

FOURTH ARC

Volume 6

Stars on land & heroes in space

With Black’s memory now an open book, Black and White have old feelings and challenges to deal with. But new events in their lives refuse to let them put old wounds to rest, as they struggle to learn how to sail on-wards and shine like a lighthouse to guide others.


Strengthened by their complete trust in one another and the battles they’ve faced together and individually, they both yearn and work towards a better foundation in their lives- one acting as the lighthouse keeper and the other the sailor, one piercing through the darkness and the other riding across the raging waves.


Yet, how much of the heroic children they remember themselves as still exist? And how far can a light shine before it’s no longer visible?

Volume 7

Cracked thoughts. Compassed feelings

You know that line between letting a person grieve so they can take their time to wallow, and the point where they need a reality check?

I don’t know where that line is.
I used to, but somewhere along the years,
I became afraid of it.

FIFTH ARC

Volume 8

The new grey…

After a big fight and a big jump, Black and White are now in unfamiliar territory, where their world is no longer black and white. In this new grey world they must explore learning how to feel with their heart without losing reason, and how to think things through without being heartless.


There are still many things they must face about themselves as they go through these major life changes, adjusting to living not just one way or the other, but finding balance by living in the middle.

 

Volume 9

To let go and to seize

Black has always been inundated with hardships, but he went further down into the abyss when he lashed out at an innocent soul after misreading a situation. Distressed by tremendous remorse, Black is now looking for the path towards a resolution.

White, who has always been by his side, whether underwater or above, is trying to understand the forgetful mind which erased his existence. The mind of his best friend whose heart continuously chooses to harm none other than himself.

All that, while also attempting to save a place for himself in his own mind, and to dig up a place for his heart in his life.
