A Reminder To Myself (Over The Next 4 Years)

So here’s to the next saga of my own innate imagination and hopefully something good comes from it.

Story Premise (based on a dream I had this past winter):

Having barely escaped the destruction of their world through a subspace warp gate, a group of teen girls ends up on an Earth in the latter half of the 1800s–but scattered to all parts of the globe.

One girl in particular ends up in the lower part of Manhattan, in the Queens District–with no memories of how she got here; save for the outrageous dress she’s wearing and a unique pen necklace that’s around her neck.

With only her name to her credit, the girl tries to seek shelter in a world that is totally alien from the one she once knew–a place that is both fascinating as it is awesome; a steam-powered city with technology far removed from her own.

It is there that she befriends a boy whose father is a steam catapult driver and part-time inventor whose business takes him all over the Continental United States with the hopes that his latest invention will spur interest from the business world and make him lots of money.

Back home, the girl tries to make sense of her situation, led on by clues given off by her pen necklace. As far as she knows, she’s the only known survivor out of a group of fifteen that managed to flee. But as more and more of her memories come back, the girl decides to embark on a quest to find and locate the rest of her sisters in the vain hopes that they can be all reunited someday and find a way back to the only home that they once knew.

But unbeknownst to her, certain parties have already noted the arrival of these girls and have moved to lay claim to technologies and power that is truly out of this world. Power that could help shape the planet…or dominate it.
