ALCHEMY was meant to be a scifi, cyberpunk retelling of the story that wound up being the first three books in the CATALYST MOON series (Incursion, Breach, and Storm.)

Note: This piece was originally submitted to the /r/fantasywriters May fiction challenge. It is set approximately thirteen years before Catalyst Moon: Incursion. Enjoy! Feathers Eris clambered out of the pond. Water streamed down her legs, she'd soaked her nicest gown, and Mama would be furious that her curls were ruined.
