In a world of division where one kind is gifted with charms known as Cards and the other is not. Where one is able to fully appreciate the richness and beauty of life and the other is deprived of such joys. Where one holds the power to manipulate the world and those around them, and the other has become mere carrion for the birds littering the ground in a garish shade of scarlet. * * Every person in Younria has a blank canvas inked on their wrist upon birth. Blanks, they are called. When the imprint of a Card has manifested within one’s canvas, their status changes to that of a Holder. When they’ve passed the age of seven and the canvas is still vacant, they are Unmarked—a rank considered the epitome of failure, something Holders emphasise relentlessly.

Nicolás Velez is done with casual sex. Listen, yes, he might've fucked everyone in his flat within the first week of living in halls and had a respectable run on Grindr, but what eighteen-year-old wouldn't? He's almost twenty-four now, though, and sleeping with people who won't remember his name five minutes later is, as his best mate would say, "not cute, baby girl". Problem: Nikki sucks at dating. In his defence, he really is trying his best. He even read dating advice to the eighth page of Google! (Would've read further too, but the suggestions started sounding more appropriate for the search "how to kidnap a woman?" so he reckoned it the time to quit.) Despite the effort, Nikki is about as successful on dates as Charlie Hides was on Drag Race: difficult to watch and definitely overstaying his welcome. Josephine Rawlins is all about casual sex. After the end of a seven-year relationship, Joe packs up the wreckage of her life in London and seeks new scenery in Manchester.

Solution: Practice together. **** PANSEXUAL MAN x BISEXUAL WOMAN ROMANCE TROPES: friends with benefits, workplace romance, mutual pining COMP TITLES: Entergalactic, Take A Hint Dani Brown
