Fan Fic / Blank

Go To

Blank is a fanfic in The Weedverse by Kudzuhaiku.

She is blank. She knows nothing of what she is or where she came from. She carries a book, just as blank as She is. She's hungry, so She tries to eat a vulnerable little equine-creature, but another creature intervenes.

For convenience, as the main character is unnamed for most of the story, "She" will be used as her name outside spoilers from after her naming.


Blank contains examples of:

  • The Atoner: A lot of the Frozen North community are this, one way or another, as it's a Penal Colony.
  • Babies Ever After: Written Word is pregnant by Malcanus by the end of the story.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: Averted, The demons attempted this on She, but it didn't work. Exiling her to the mortal world is a continued attempt at this.
