Synopsis

Max is a troubled individual, struggling through life without really knowing what they're doing or where they're going.

Then, they meet Victoria, someone as attracted to weirdness as she is attractive to it. Victoria is interesting, fun and wonderful and she makes Max feel things.
They also meet Penny, an alien Symbiote that binds to their nervous system. Penny is weird, young and full of questions, and as a little bonus, gives Max superpowers.

If you've read the original Penumbral: This is not that story. The core premise is the same, and the characters are very similar, but this is a different story with a different atmosphere. Try to go in blind, if you can.

      Now that the story is complete, I feel comfortable writing a review. I dont know what to say that wouldn't pale in comparison to such an amazing story. I laughed. I cried, I smashed that read button everytime I saw a new chapter was up. It's a story of finding oneself, of acceptance and conquering the internal struggle of being enough. This is one of the only stories that made me grin in delight and giggle aloud. But more telling is, it is now one of only 4 stories I have ever recommended to others (including cis folk cause it's that amazing). So if you're reading this and feel ambivalent about giving it a try, take the plunge. You'll fall in love immediately. And if your still reading this review, stop! Go read the story already!

      There is a bunch of reasons why I like this story so much. It's wholesome, dramatic, makes me cry, warms my heart,... It's all around a really good story about a transgender girl coming to terms with herself while experiencing quite a unique, fantastic adventure - without even leaving her hometown.

      But what strikes me most is the (for me) still quite new concept of a person sharing her body and mind with someone else. Not in the creepy Jeckyl-Hyde way but with mutual respect for boundaries and no blackout whatsoever. Is this how plural systems experience the world?
