Babikiye

Created by

A contemplative, hopepunk science fantasy world by Aster Vela  
Science Fantasy
Magic is science that the people of Babikiye haven't quite figured out yet, if you ask a scientist. The laws of physics which define our universe are almost the same here, with a handful of significant differences which allows magitech to flourish for those with the means to harness it.
Hopepunk
There are many different stories which make up Babikiye's mosaic. Some are dark, some are bright. At the end of the day, it focuses on hope.   It largely champions those who fight for their dreams, even if they themself may not live long enough to see their work come to fruition.
Exploratory
Was a storm caused by a cold front or a deity? Babikiye emphasizes the power of interpretation in the development of its communities and civilizations. These interpretations, born from the explorations and discoveries of Babikiye's peoples, shape the way different civilizations view the same universe.   There is not one, but two, entire worlds for our many protagonists to explore. They discover many wonders and horrors along the way.
Stories and Legacies
Whether one has forever or only 30 years, one thing in life is certain: time passes and there is no going back.   Entombed in history books or not, everyone leaves their mark in the stories they share and the legacies they leave behind.
Habitually Queer
Queer content is my default. It may not always be loud or center stage, but it's inherent to the work.
Adult 18+
While Babikiye is usually pretty tame and otherwise warned for, it does dive into explicit and graphic content that are unsuitable for minors.
Work in Progress
Babikiye is a significant work in progress. Many of the published articles are still drafts, since I am learning how to best write this codex as I go. Patience and kindness is humbly requested. Enjoy the mess!
 
"The universe knows no borders. For better and for worse, we must draw our own lines."
— Nanatu Zylpeiros
 
Our universe is not defined by the stars above our heads nor the ground beneath our feet. Our Creator has gifted us a universe of infinite variety, and it is us who has named and defined our Babikiye.   Yet, how can we ever hope to define Babikiye in truth when we are at the mercy of the passage of time? Year after year, people die, cultures vanish, and monuments erode. I created the archive before you now in response to the challenge of preserving our legacies and those of our worlds, Aravu and Kivria.   As we record and we read the contents within, may it challenge us to reconsider the lines we have drawn between each other and remind us that our most extraordinary discoveries laid, and will continue to lay, where our lines converge.   Cordially Yours,
Ezeki
