STORY
"If you pass under the bridge while holding two and a half silver coins in your left hand on a foggy day, you'll be transported to another world."

That's what Belinda the Importress told Taku when he came to buy milk at her store one day. Upon hearing this, his brother Jinsuke dismissed it as mere superstition. When fog rolls into town the very next morning, Taku sets out to find the truth. Is it really superstition? Or is there really something on the other side?
CHARACTERS
Image
Taku (protag): A kid who lives with his brother in the hamlet of Bruma. Curiosity is his strong point!
Image
Jinsuke: Taku's older brother. He repairs odds and ends for the villagers. Despite his poor health, he's strong of will.
Image
Passagekeeper: A mysterious person standing guard at the bridge.
Image
Tanukawa: A large, sober tanuki who carries a gourd of sake.
Image
Riku (L) and Haré (R): A merchant with 2 heads.
Image
Faun Prince Ratsu: An odd faun who wields a magic staff.

Ohhh this look very cute!! Though, Riku and Haré creeped me out a little bit, but they are still cute. Others are adorbs as well, especially the Passagkeeper and Jinsuke is just precious. I love the premise, it sound pretty cute in my opinion. Everybody are so cute, I want to play this soon wah, and good luck!!

One note: I'm a little worried about Riku and Haré . . . Please don't make them "weird" because of the situation they're in. I hope they're treated with respect. (I watched a documentary a while back about a pair of dicephalic parapagus twins, and some parts were heartbreaking to watch because some people didn't treat them as people.)

Also: These characters are two people, so they wouldn't be referred to in the singular as "a merchant."

@Josie, Godline, Camille, Kitty: THANKS EVERYONE!! ^__^

@Mad Harlequin: Thanks for sharing your concerns. There is a reason they are "a merchant." Whether or not you find it convincing depends on how well I can write it in one month I guess.
They are not dicephalic parapagus twins though. Please remember that this is a fantasy story. There is nothing physically "wrong" with a mythical cyclops (unless there is), and in this case there is nothing "wrong" with Riku and Haré in the bodily/physical/developmental sense.

Noted. Yes, it's fantasy, but I was concerned that they may be presented in a negative or romanticized light. Fiction's done the same thing with other conditions (disabilities, etc.), so I wanted to at least ask. Thanks for your answer. All that aside, I thoroughly enjoy "spirited away" stories and I'm looking forward to this one.

Good luck this month!

@Mad Harlequin, yoshibb, Hazel-Bun: Thanks everyone!! ^0^ I hope you'll all enjoy when we're done ^___^

AAANNNND DAY 1 UPDATE!
Today I made placeholder gui stuff for my programmer and started on the writing! Ciikos Bridge is sitting at 2500 words (plus more since I haven't added the scene I'm in the middle of co-writing with teruki into the file where I do the wordcount haha). I'm looking forward to knocking out this script in one week!!
