Cover (With symbolic meanings of the cover inside the story too)

Cover Meanings
1. No characters as they are a surprise and to retain the mystery of the story. It ruins the surprise if I put any on the cover. How often can you find covers without characters on them? Hehe.
2. My cover is a tribal style of The Sun and The Moon with tribal font words along with Light vs Darkness background.
3. The letters in the light sunny background are black because of contrast and also to insinuate the idea of darkness within light.
The letters in the dark night background are white to insinuate light within the darkness.
They are also equal proportion in numbers and distance from each other to signify the battle between good and evil. MALAP has 5 letters. INCHI has 5 letters too. So equal proportions of light and dark.
4. Cause not all light things are good and not all dark things are bad. Don't judge a book by its cover.
5. It's in the skies thus the stars and clouds along with the light beam.
The sun is on the light side while the moon is on the night side like reflections of each other. Scientifically speaking, the moon's light is the light of the sun.
Celestial objects overlap into the next background to symbolize reality. The moon can be seen in the day but usually, in the morning we only see the sun.
The moon also envelopes the sun to symbolize that within Darkness, there is light. In humans, good and bad exist.
6. The blur lines in between signify Dusk where night time is coming. We can't really tell when that happens or the accurate timing thus the significance of the blurred lines.
7. The light sunny background is slightly more than the dark background.
Light about 60% (3/4) and dark 40% (1/4) of the background colours to signify that light and goodness will always have an edge to eventually triumph over evil.
8. Light is on the left side while the night is on the right side. The left usually symbolises bad and right usually symbolizes good. Not for this story. Illusions vs Reality.
The Light beam on the light sun is also to symbolize that Light brings hope to the world.
Like the Light of Malapinchi.

No worries. I plan to record it and upload it to YouTube once it’s completely finalised :grinning:. Also, I’m planning a Wattpadd version but it will be told from a different point of view. So at least everyone and anyone can get a fair share of reading it if they wish.

Ps. Is it possible not to receive notifications even when I create a thread? Because this is my first time after 3 days creating this thread then I checked it again. I did receive via email that’s how I knew there were replies :sweat_smile: but I usually logged onto forums to check the notifications but surprisingly there were none? :thinking:

No worries and thank you! @Jass

I’m planning for a Wattpadd version as well and will update when I’m done. I will most likely post the Wattpadd version here on the OG post as well.

@whattchusayy Hey there! This is the link to my story if you’re interested. :grinning::grinning::grinning::grinning: What’s your story? You can post it here if you like. :grin:

Yooo! Thanks for the check in. Appreciate it :hugs: Going great actually…hopefully sort of :thinking::joy:.

Season 1 is done (1-10 episodes in the app and YouTube) but Season 2 is in works but the layout for Episodes 11-19 is there just haven’t published by me yet. The plot, writing planning and everything is there. Just the directing and coding needs a looootttt more work cause I’m such a ptsd :rofl::rofl: and also how could I make it more different, alive, creative and better than Season 1. Thus more trials and errors again haha. :joy:

However due to uni sophomore phase I haven’t had much time in updating :disappointed_relieved: or have more concentration sadly which I had when I was doing my Associate degree. :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::joy:
