Coloring / colouring book story:
There is an invisible world that humans cannot see called Terraflippia. It is a world filled with magic, elves, fairies, wizards, goblins, trolls, and other fantasy creatures.
This world is a beautiful world, but it is also one that is divided. The two main factions of the world are the Elvenic and the Ganespe. The Elvenic consists of elves and various allies such as the grand wizard and the unicorns. The Ganespe consists of goblins, trolls, imps, and other alliance members. This division between factions has caused great turmoil in Terraflippia, and no solution has been found. Even the magic of the grand wizard hasn't helped.
The grand wizard, realizing the impending doom of Terraflippia, has recognized that the only way to restore balance and order between the two factions is to generate magic from a parallel world - from the human world. But how? Humans have so much creativity, but how can it be consolidated and converted to magic?
He then remembered the great power that color inherently generates and devised a color magic spell. The wizard added the idea to an artist's thoughts prompting him to create a coloring book that represents the two factions in 25 magical flip illustrations.
The spell was placed on imagery that balances the two factions, and restores magic to Terraflippia.
To the artist the coloring book and this story are just a part of his imagination, but to Terraflippia they are much more. The two factions on each page represent different sides of the same coin, and a balance between the two.
The magic happens when humans around the globe access their creativity to give these illustrations the life of color. Now the magic is up to you. The views you see and the color you give to them have the capacity to save Terraflippia and bring peace.
The grand wizard asks all colorists to color what is in their hearts, but also to remember that appearances aren't everything. What is ugly on the outside isn't always ugly on the inside.
The fate of Terraflippia is in your hands!
