[The Story] Fasten Your Seatbelts

The Summer Arc of “The Story” is bookended by two major traveling events. The first trip ends the Adolescence Arc with Trishna’s family driving to pick up John; the second trip preambles the College Arc with a week-long flight to Sindia to visit family. This flight is also the first time John has ever flown. It will be quite the adventure, indeed, for an unlucky kid from Lanada to fasten into a more successful life.

[The Story] Building Up Lanada

That said, once something is named, even a fictional town like Lanada, it can become its own “reality.”
