i think he wants to be like everybody else, but because his body turns out to be made of diamond in the moonlight, he can't be outside because people want his diamond body, that's why they can't travel during the night and in the day they have to hide from people, thanks goodness he's got help from a friend or sibling, to make a journey to a special place, where he can finish this curse/spell/skill he has, and be a normal child again.

there it is :la:!! hope i don't bother you with this story i just made :)

Aw, thanks :) In this one specifically, I was actually a bit tired of trying to pick colours and in the end I just went "oh screw it, it stays like this." And it stayed like that.

In this one specifically, I can tell you that yes, I have my own version of the complete story.
