My Day the Series (2020)

An Unabashedly “Feel Good” Love Story?

Do you know the secret behind every Fairy tale? Cinderella? Aurora? Or Snow White? None of them were perfect from the beginning. Each of them had to face struggles to meet their Prince Charming. If they didn’t face turmoil from the beginning, there wouldn’t be a storyline, right? Anyone who is imperfect and has the inner strength to work past those imperfections deserves a “Happily Ever After.”

Choose Your Own BL Adventure

The World’s First and Only Interactive BL Series

Have you ever had that feeling of frustration when your favorite character in a series just doesn’t get it? Those times when you think that they should have spoken a word, acted in a certain way, or even see another character in a different light? Well, I have. But wait, we can only cry out in exasperation as we see the series that we follow go in directions that are sometimes not totally to our liking.
