Wayrift Light Novel Scripts

Light Novel Scripts are side stories, old RPs and chat scripts that help to fill in background information and highlight many of the side adventures that we’ve written over the years that wouldn’t normally make it into the actual comic.

Once upon a time, when Coming of the Darkstar was a young project, there existed a Darkstar mailing list (Founded: Mar 26, 1999) of friends and readers — some who are with us still today, some who have since went their own way. January of 2001, we started the second official free-form mailing list RPG.

During this RP, the authors of Wayrift first met and became friends…. it was also during this RP that Ben and Leona first met and became friends. So, though the writing is old, this is the foundation for everything that came later – Darkstar, Shimmer and Dreigiau.

The timeline is about one year after Darkstar’s end… though this is and is not a prequel to Wayrift. You will see where some of these storylines served as a direct inspiration for future Wayrift chapters. There will be a number of elements in the old RP that carry over and get developed further in the comic.

In 2019, the Darkstar Mailing List officially became no more. This list was eventually turned into Yahoo Groups, which was sunsetted that year. However, I caught wind of this before it happened, and was able to request an archive of the mailing list messages. It does require a special viewer to open, but I do have the archives saved!
