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.

      Status: chapter 9: internal dialogue
      Jul 26, 2020

      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?
