Callum is alone in the States applying for a job as an engineer when the world changes forever. In an event called the Emergence he is changed into a creature of legend known throughout many ancient cultures, the trickster fox. Follow Kalia as she descends into villainhood, becoming the greatest thief in Penrith city, outwitting heroes and villains alike!

This story has both Cuteness and Heartache, so if that's not your thing, I'm sorry :). Also contains the temporary death of a side character, which is apparently something I need to warn people about.

 

(Originally wrote this story on a different site, but I'm trying out royal road.)

 

Also, I should tell you that this is only one story of an expanded universe that my friends and I are writing in. There is two other stories currently being written, including one that will play an important role later on. We'll see if they upload here too.

I am currently up to date (chapter 22), and this story has jumped into my list of favorites.

Good grammer, good writing style.

Story wise, it's fantastic. A delicious blend of superheroes and myth, all causing chaos.

WARNING! Character analysis has small spoilers.

Spoiler: Spoiler

 A great story with action, psychological trauma, fluffy romance (in more ways than one), and some wonderful yuri.

BE WARNED! If you cant handle girl love, or binary gender neutral characters, or hat on racists, this probably isn't for you. But give it a try, you'll love it!

A beautiful story by a great person

this is an incredible tale of dealing with the hazards of living as a transgender, or more specifically in this case, "non-standard" person, in a world where everything is designed to work against you. both the concept of the Emergence, the descriptions of the results and the resulting systems and occurences, the small victories that kalia gains in her attempts to just keep living... all of it is a perfect and stunning tale of the struggle of someone who just happens to be "other".

you should read this, and attempt to empathize with the struggles of Kalia, the Emerged, and everyone else. It captures many of the struggles of the real world as is, and takes a few of them just a few steps further - in a way that isnt all that unbelievable.

thank you for writing this.

This story is the beginning for the Kammiverse. With a sudden transformation causing difficulties for our protagonist, this story explores some of the difficulties people face for being different, where morality meets legality, and a lot about how the aftermath of a big change can be both good and bad. It is smart, beautiful, funny, and one of my favorite stories on RR.

This story is great.  I love it.  Please keep writing it.

 

Edit: After posting my review, I read a few of the others.  It's crazy, but I feel I must mention that having Nazi's as badguys isn't a political statement.  They've committed mass murder in the past.  They want to commit mass murder in the future.  They're badguys.  Am I losing my fucking mind?  I never thought I'd have to explain that, it's not about you, it's just that  genocide is bad.

Yet Another Biased Review

Another one, you say? 

There's a reason why this story has so many biased reviews. Before I decided I wanted to hop on the Kammi Kettu writing train (sorry, my story chapters aren't up on RR just yet), I was just another reader. Val has created a wonderful little universe here full of complex characters and a bit of a mystery in the background. It's not a story that's going to be liked by everyone; no story with trans characters and an acknowledgment of racism in America will be. It is, however, a story that I've thoroughly enjoyed so far and can't wait to see what happens going forward!

Read up to the latest chapter (chapter 4), story is a good read so far. Grammar is on point and there's pretty much only one character to judge right now which is the MC. He/she is pretty good and believable. Him dealing with the new changes is interesting, mostly with how his transformation seemed to have some changes to his emotions, which IMO seems and is done pretty believable. Can't judge style for shit but the storyvis presented pretty good so far and the action scenes are easy to follow. Only gripe I got is pretty small but its how the MC says he doesn't really care about politics but then proceeds to describe a group of people as looking like 'racist white trash'. It just felt a bit out of character for the MC to me. Again, just a minor gripe, maybe i'm just over/underthinking things. Overall pretty good story so far, which I feel I shouldn't be saying given that I'm only 4 chapters in. Looking forward to what comes next.

A truly great story. I'm not fully caught up yet, but it's REALLY nice to have some queer rep in superhero ANYTHING in general.

 

I look forward to seeing this story go even further, and I look forward to reading the rest of the Kammiverse in time.

Lovable Characters

The characters in Kammi are very well written. They feel like real people, especially in their interactions with each other. A good read for character development and interactions.

A Thoroughly unbiased biased review

 This story is just lovely. Valerie has such a playful way with words and the audience is taken along for a ride. Kalia as a protagonist is puckish and immediately lovable. There are highs, lows, comedy, tragedy, and a whole lot of gay. Aka everything that a good discerning audience should look for in a story. 

 

I know some people complain about the tie in stories. But we are folx who have asked if it's okay to write in the universe. There is no requirement to read the other stories. It can flesh out some characters, but not mandatory. It's fun to have a shared creative space with friends. But you don't have to read if you don't want to. 

 

Also. This is the trans wish fulfillment that trans folx need right now. In a world where doctors have now been okayed to refuse treating trans folx, some of the outright rudeness that Emerged people face (hint it's a metaphor) doesn't seem too out of place. But throughout it all adorableness and love shine on through.
