The Mark

by asagurble
The Mark(formerly 'The Mark of the Witch')

For thousands of years humans and witches maintained a symbiotic relationship. However, this peaceful relationship was destroyed when the king of the humans declared that all witches were to be purged. Those once idolized and valued for their abilities were hunted down in the thousands. Fear of the witches and their powers spread, and the kingdom of Ilios established the Knight's Regiment, in order to protect the citizens from the threat of magic users gone rouge. It is widely believed that the witches are all but extinct.

Curtis Hammarskjold is a knight-in-training in the city of Faroe Elipas. On his way home from class one day he stumbled upon an injured boy, laying battered and barely breathing in an alleyway. Against his better judgement he takes him home and discovers that the boy is a witch, on his way to the castle to confront the King of Ilios. Curtis must now decide whether he'll obey his training and his King, or follow his instinct to help those in need.

Warnings: Strong language, violence, heavy themes
probably also a little gay

@Auldr: Thank you! That's some really solid advice (๑꒪▿꒪)*
I recommend you choose a frequency that you can meet consistently given whatever is going on in your life. Pick a safe interval that you can meet most of the time rather than a challenging goal that makes you feel file you've failed every time your miss it. I would avoid trying to do "big bang" updates like a chapter a month. You get more chances for new readers from a weekly update where you are going to show up in the 'recently updated' view and people have a chance of remembering where the story is or only needed to read the previous page or so. Good luck.
There won't be a page this week because I've been swamped with finals and other work, but I'm thinking of changing the posting schedule.
Tell me what you guys would prefer; 1 page every week, 2 pages every 2 weeks, or 1 page every Monday, Tuesday, and Wedsnday.
Not sure what I'll decide on but please let me know which schedule you think is best! I'd also be open to just releasing a whole chapter every month or so? who knows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
