Introduction from the Desk of Clinton Bauer
Let me make this one thing clear for y’all. If you all are wondering if this will be the typical Lois Lane/Clark Kent-inspired love story with the theme of superheroes, then you need to find something else to read. And if you’re one of those ignorant readers who like to root for the top dogs while ignoring the underdog, then why bother reading this in the first place. No, honey, this story right here is not your typical love story and this is definitely not the typical nerd/bully love story for teenagers either.
Well, it mainly is for the most part- the bully/nerd love story, that is, but there’s going to be a lot of changes since this is mostly an LGBT love story that is definitely like no other. It’s going to be full of magic, voodoo royals with a lot of sass and magic on hand, stylish misfits, hunky aliens, fiendish-yet-lacking villains, and even a lot of suprises. But be warned, folks. This is going to be full of characters part of the minority.
If you’re part of the extremist-minded-white-supremacy, then this is not for you.
If you’re a homophobe and hate the LGBT, then this is not for you.
If you have anyone who loves to look down on the little guy and favor the underdog, then this is not for you.
And if you like to clown someone just because you like to be better than everyone else, then this is DEFINITELY not for you.
So if you belong in either one or more of those categories, then please (to quote Mama RuPaul herself) sashay away.
But if you like to cheer for the misfits and have an open mind to love the LGBT community and the people of color (Black-Americans in particular) and you want to have a taste of the forbidden fruit, then (again, I’m quoting Mama RuPaul) Shantay, you stay. Because this story right here will definitely make you want to laugh, cry, and read on without putting it down until we reach the final page.
So, are you ready? Do you have your doors locked and windows bolted with the curtains dawn? Do you have your phone muted? Do you have your drink of choice (Coca-Cola if you represent the state of Georgia like I am or any part of the Southeast from Texas to Delaware and from Florida to Kentucky) and your favorite snack to munch on?
If so, then you are just in time for the story of your life.
Now, on with the show.
