Song of Calamity
The Plot
The orphan girl Calamity is a child of two worlds. Half human, half fae, she is endowed with supernatural powers. Among her special eyes, that can see more than should be possible for a mortal,  she is able to freely traverse between the human world and the fairy realm by tearing open temporary portals, called rifts.
Together with her faithful, yet mysterious talking cat Maurice, she sets out on a journey to find her place in the world and to learn more about her unknown and puzzling past.
Not only are dark fairies to be beaten up, that are manifestations of traumata, addictions and mental illnesses of the human subconscious -  she also founds a sweet punk rock band along the way. 
United by music and the goal to achieve something in the tough music business, they are confronted with all sorts of strange events of cosmic scale which they can only survive together.
