Soon, a series of mysterious kidnappings occur in the Academy happen just as quickly as the paranoia of a member of royalty comes to visit the Academy. Why are these young girls being kidnapped? Who's doing these treacherous deeds? What are they doing to the girls? What does Gertrude have anything to do it?
The only answer Gertrude has to these series of questions is the fact that her best friend, Charlotte, has gone missing. The only other ally she has is her outspoken, foul-mouthed mentor - Professor Rosemary.
Natsumi (age 29)
A delivery woman who shows up in the prologue and epilogue. Originally, she wanted to become a punk rock singer but finally realized that she is not only tone-deaf but can't actually play the guitar very well. Loud, abrasive, and easily annoyed, Natsumi isn't known to be a lover of books, much less reading them; yet she takes an interest in this one...
Gertrude (age 13)
A student of Goldmoon Academy as well as the protagonist of this story. On paper, she is learning Healing Magic to become a nun but in reality, she's learning magic so she can be equipped to help people in her town of Brighthollow. She has an older sister named Monica and looks up to her a lot. Quiet, ambitious, and cheerful, she gets along with most people and doesn't really do anything to stand out on her own.
Charlotte (age 12)
A student of Goldmoon Academy. On paper, she is learning Magic to become a nun. In reality, she detests Healing Magic and is interested in morbid things, especially in the Dark Arts. Introverted, gloomy, and a little arrogant, it's hard for other people to understand her. She excels in potions and Gertrude often goes to her for help when it comes to potions or anything that surrounds it.
Professor Rosemary (age 36)
A professor at Goldmoon Academy. On paper, she's a trained nun dedicated to teaching young women of the next generation how to become the best nuns for Lightlea as can be. In reality, she's anything but holy. Loud, outspoken, foul-mouthed, she literally doesn't care who you are - if you do her or anyone she cares about wrong, she'll let you know. This usually gets her in trouble with the Headmaster but he doesn't fire her simply because one fired professor is enough - especially with the secrets the Academy carries.
...along with many more characters
none at the moment, sorry...

Anyway, this may or may not be actually canon aligned with Gertrude's story I'm going to make in RPG MAKER VX ACE but if you guys decide to play it as well (the link to my RPG Maker blog is in my signature).
I guess you can see this as sort of... a historical fiction within the world since this is supposed to take place during the medieval-ish times. Natsumi is also part of the world but part of a different timeline. I may or may not make a VN/KN about her but it depends how, honestly, if her story will flow better in this format.
Anyway, right now, I'm feeling sick and I haven't put up the sprites (yet) I want for my story so people can see what type of person the characters are.
I really want to give myself a challenge and see if I can finish this within the month of October 2014. I'm still writing the script, you see, and I 'm still trying to decide what music should go with it as I'm writing it (which is why it's in the Ideas section, heh).
I look forward to some feedback, should anyone have any! I shall also try to answer some questions as well if anyone has them! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this long post!! If you want to read more about my process, you can read my VN blog!
