Your story title and author name
It Was Written In The Stars by Mars X.
What made you want to start writing your story?
I wanted to write a story about a man whos passionate about astrology and a man from a different background and lifestyle who gets to know him. I also wanted to write a story where the readers get to learn a little bit about real astrology through the main character’s passion, as its a topic often misunderstood. Finally, I wanted to tackle real life issues like poverty. Basically, I wanted to write a story that I would want to read.
What makes your story different from the rest?
My story has a male mc and that seems to be rare on episode, it also will have a trans character written BY a trans person so it will have ACCURATE trans representation, which is virtually nonexistent on episode. Not to mention most choices will matter and there are minigames, but thats more common. Also I’ve never seen a story that incorperates real astrology into the story and I’ve never seen a story that talks about fate and ACTUALLY gets you to think and wonder about the concept.
Any inspirations that helped drive your story concept?
Honestly I was inspired by the lack of representation of a variety of experiences on episode, and I wanted to bring more experiences to the table. I was also inspired by the concept of fate.
Any important topics or lessons your story contains?
Poverty, healthy relationships, the trans experience, and more!
