I’m just thinking out loud here, really, but lately I’ve been considering Shades of the Magi as the name of my series. I think I’ve officially given up on the original setting tentatively falling under that series-name, which means it’s free to use for something else. And then I had a thought. I don’t know when, where, or why, but it just popped into my head a few days after I’d (subconsciously) decided not to use it for the fantasy setting: what if I used it for Children of Fire and its sequels? It would only take like, 10 seconds to reorganise the categories on here, if I went that way, and since I’m not using it for that fantasy series I tried a few times to do (and have so far found a lot more success in starting a brand new one, in that I have a story I’d actually like to write)… what if I used it as a setting-name for C.O.F.? After all, C.O.F. is about the aftermath of a war with mages and destructive spells and stuff. Hence, people are living in the shadow of the mages, or magi. It makes a heap of sense. And, up until now, I’ve had almost no idea what to call the series – not any set in stone idea, anyway. Just ‘Children of Fire, the series’. Or maybe ‘The Element War’, although I think that might be more appropriate to any sort of in-the-war prequel series I may or may not write.
Poll time? I think so.
