Mi’atsha Series

Summary

History: Originally I called this story plot 3, then I named it Witches, Dragons, and War, but after Harry Potter came out, I named the story after the main character, Mi’atsha.

The series begins at the end of a peaceful age and plot 3 runs through books one and two (which at first was only one book). In the beginning of the story, no one knows much about Mi’atsha and that’s a good thing, because not even the enemies know about her. However, the enemies have been preparing for war and battle and they start attacking in the beginning of the story. Also, at the start of the story, one of the main kingdoms is holding the celebration and contests for the prince to find a future wife. Per the specifications of the celebration and contests, Kingdom Daliium brings Mi’atsha in to compete.

Mi’atsha decides to start her coven of witches during the contests, and as the enemies attack the allies, Mi’atsha is there to defend. In the beginning she tries to down play her abilities quite a bit.

By the end of book 1, the enemies have led significant attacks against the allies and 2 kingdoms are in bad shape.

In book 2, Mi’atsha tries to retaliate, but she is unfamiliar with war tactics. She does hope to push a duel into motion, because a duel can be very important. In a duel, the witches get to see the strength of their enemies and the winner gets to set up terms for the ‘cool off’ period. Mi’atsha does get the duel she wants, but it doesn’t end normally and shortly afterward, the allies have to fight what seems to be a myriad of cauldron created creatures.

In book 3, the 2 main enemies have stepped back to rebuild, but enemies in the south emerge. A major battle takes place in book 3 and the allies gain advantages they should not have had.

In book 4, the allies are trying to account for their advantages. One item of advantage is the dust, so they are trying to stop the dust. Meanwhile, all the black witches are coming together because they all have a common enemy: Mi’atsha. By the end of book 4, everyone knows that a big battle is next because Mi’atsha calls the battle as she states the black witches can no longer have hovels or slaves.

In book 5, everyone prepares but tensions mount because this is the moment of culmination for either balance and peace or total destruction of normal life and enslavement forever.

Join me in reading this delightful story.

Plot 3

[email protected]

  1. Start near the end of a peaceful age.
  2. One or several enemy groups are gradually taking over something vitally important to life.  i.e., water supply, food supply, etc.
  3. One or several alliance groups realize their predicament before their enemies completely take them over or make them slaves.  This or these groups start to fight back.  What resources do they still have available?  How much do the allies have to conserve these resources?
  4. Long battle times: what advantages do the enemy or enemies have?  Were these advantages foreseen or known?  What can the allies do to even the odds?
  5. Betrayal: minor or major characters need to see the other side as coming out on top and needs to betray his or her side, (or go from a neutral position to helping one or the other side.)
  6. Tradition:  older generation teaching younger generation.  How will the new challenges impact these lessons?  Will they be enough or do new traditions and lessons emerge?
  7. No single hero: everyone has a part to play.  (Even betrayers had a part, so someone will have to pick these parts up after betrayal).
  8. If magic is involved, how is it used? i.e., spells, potions, wands, etc.  How is it learned? i.e., teacher, books, rites, etc.  What are the limits?  (There must be limits!  No all-powerful mages or witches or anything else.)  The story doesn’t have to balance magic between characters, but should be somewhat balanced between sides, at least in the beginning.
  9. Dividing line: what makes bad guys bad?  Is it the way they think?  Is it that they only care about self or power?  With the battle running long is there a chance that the good guys lose their sense of purpose and start acting like the bad guys?
  10. How much do the allies save in the end?  And how much do allies or enemies have to rebuild? i.e., lives, homes, kingdoms, forests, etc.
  11. Also how much do the common people know about or help with these problems?  Does everything happen around them without their knowledge?  Do they know what’s happening?  Are they scared or do they have faith in the authority?  Do they protest shortage or war?
