So I may have lost NaNo this year, but that's not stopping me now. These are the synopses of the first volume of my web serial. I was thinking about releasing these to build interest but I feel like I'd need some second opinions first.

001: New World

After having a strange dream, X tries to put it out of his mind by exploring his city. However Alice Ios, his new guardian, seems to have other ideas.

002: 30 Days

We follow the 1st 30 Days of X and Alice’s life in Ecumene City

    Well, I can't really give you feedback on this. It's just a concept, and you haven't shown me your execution of it - the important part - for me to say it's paced properly, introduced properly, building the world clearly, or even to gauge if you're meeting the promises in 'most amusing way possible' and 'tension rises between X and Riley'. Some of the best stories out there have a dumb synopsis, and I've seen great story outlines that were serious stinkers with their end products.

    So, what opinions are you looking for with this?
