Welcome new reader!
Welcome to the world of Flux Destiny! It can be daunting to enter a new fictional universe and fandom. Believe me, I know. So, I’ve prepared this FAQ to help answer some of the most important questions you may have as a new reader. If you don’t find the answer to your question below, feel free to make contact!
Q: What is Flux Destiny?
Flux Destiny is a universe where destiny itself is an actual, physical force like gravity or electromagnetism. A Flux Destiny is a self-contained reality that characters in the universe can create using ethereal Gears of Destiny.
The main storyline follows two teenagers: Marco and Hugo, and their Clockbot, Lucky, as they travel the countryside repairing ruptures - tears in the fabric of space-time. You can read a spoiler-free overview of the universe storyline here!
Q: Who is the creator?
The Flux Destiny universe was created by Chris Moujaes. Chris is the author of the books, comics, and manga. He also illustrates much of the work. On many occasions, Chris brings on other talented artists to create promotional art, manga, comics, and more! Cool fact: Chris spent nearly 7 years as Head of Original Entertainment for Funimation, the leader in anime. Learn all about him by clicking here!
Q: So, I'm a new reader... where should I start?
Start with Flux Destiny: Fortuna's Rings, the first full-length novel. You can can buy the novel in paperback or e-book format on Amazon, or in audiobook format through Audible. Click here to see all our buying options. You can check out the webcomics and graphic novels anytime you want! You can read them out of sequence without knowing the whole story.
Q: So, how do the novels and webcomics fit together?
There are multiple story pieces that make up the Flux Destiny universe:
Flux Destiny Novel Series - these are the ultimate canon authority on the universe, and follow the difficult journey of Marco Mendoza and Hugo Wandschneider as they wander the Academic Empire of Fortuna. The first in the series is Flux Destiny: Fortuna's Rings and can buy a copy in multiple formats by clicking here.
Flux Destiny: The Mighty Fallen - this original web manga is a new episode that takes places immediately following the events of Flux Destiny: Fortuna’s Rings. While you can read the web manga on its own, it is highly recommended that you read the Fortuna’s Rings novel first.
Ask the Characters Web Comics - The Ask the Characters mini-comics occur when the cast is off-the-clock (so-to-speak). Chris takes questions from fans that are submitted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, email or messenger pigeon and he tries to answer them as honestly as possible from the character's perspective. It's a fun way to get to know the characters. Chris is often asked if any of the material in the Ask the Characters mini-comics are considered canon to the Flux Destiny universe. The answer is yes and no. Chris tries to answer the questions in character, so for the most part they are. When in doubt, feel free to ask!
Flux Destiny: Mini-Comics - These are occasional, stand-alone comics that Chris illustrates. They can be read in any order and at any time. Most of the time they're just little snapshots into the characters' lives... mostly doing stupid things.
Flux Destiny: Battlegate Graphic Novel - The highly-rated Flux Destiny: Battlegate storyline was the original source material created in 2005, but does not occur in the main continuity that is presented in the Flux Destiny novel series. It's considered a different "destiny," in this universe, and un-related. It can be read independently.
Q: What're your feelings on fan art and fan fics?
I love 'em! And the fans love them too! Fan art is shared on the Flux Destiny Facebook page. You can also post on your own social media and tag Flux Destiny. Some fans do so much great art, they get their own dedicated albums. As long as they're PG-13 max, we’ll post them.
Q: How can I be part of the Flux Fandom community?
If there's one thing I’m really proud of (besides the books and art of course) is our Flux Fandom. The Flux Destiny Facebook Fandom has grown to over 41,000+ fans and continues to bring in new fans on a daily basis. I host weekly livestreams where fans can watch me draw and sing to obscure EDM music, post mini-comics, share behind-the-scenes art, and all sorts of cool stuff there.
Fans message me directly and share their fanart, fanfics, thoughts, jokes, etc. through Flux Destiny’s social media profiles. They’ve become a really great place to meet fellow fans and make friends. A lot of unlikely friendships between fans have been made through the fandom. I run a really fun community where jerks, trolls and other unsavory types aren't allowed to hang around for very long.
Come and check it out, I promise you'll have a great time.
