QUINN AND THE METROPOLIS
a novel by jaaychaan

The Metropolis is a cliché teenage drama, and Quinn Vasquez is a regular teenage girl who has problems with her romantic life. No biggie, right? You’ve seen stuff like that over and over. But what if these monsters just begin popping out of nowhere, and suddenly, poof! They’re gone. That’s good, but why is everyone pretending that nothing happened? Why does it feel like time has been repeating itself over and over again? Most importantly, where did those monsters come from?

When Quinn is suddenly put in the center of the Metropolis’ secrets, she kisses her normal high school life goodbye. She becomes a fugitive and is blamed for all the weirdness. But why, what has she done, and what can she do to fix it?

Content Warning: horror, mild violence, and some language

Introduction

BEFORE ITS COMPLETION, Quinn and the Metropolis had been my personal project for six years, coiled from the pleasant and unpleasant experiences of my high school years. It started off as a simple narrative about a teenage girl’s search for her identity in a pressuring society, and as I went on, it sprouted into a story about my highs and lows as a writer. I couldn’t seem to get the perfect story on paper, and now that I’m about to graduate from college, I realize that it has taken me so long to learn that every story has its flaws. It was this fear of making mistakes that hindered me from finishing, and whether or not you, as the reader, find a liking to this story, I am glad to have written this silly little novel.

This is only the first part, and it only gets better. We will meet again soon.
