Afterword

While doing research, I always found this idea interesting: a regular non-religious person, such as me, comes by most of their religious knowledge through movies, comics, and novels. However, if you look deeper, you would plainly discover that ninety-nine percent of these portrayals are wrong. Yes, very wrong! Don’t doubt it.

Yet, although a misleading concept may arise due to movies, it can become more real than the truth. A hundred years later, will it end up coming true and thus get written into proper religious texts?

I feel like it’s very possible!

Real and false, from an illusion, to a lie, to a truth. Everything is based on whether you believe in it or not. A person’s belief can make the impossible possible. This idea is the basis for this series, Illusions, Lies, Truth.

Although I had only wanted to write a ghost story in the beginning, when I fleshed the story out properly, the supernatural story somehow turned into Yu Wo’s nonsensical novel genre again.

This is a common problem for an author who thinks too much—always wanting to give an explanation for many things, thus making a ghost story not a ghost story anymore…

I hope everyone enjoys Illusions, Lies, Truth, a series that doesn’t resemble a ghost story, yet is occasionally a bit scary.

    Hold Keeper actually loves Hold Keeper?… It makes sense, his relationship is a little like Grisia and Lesus

    Aw, even as an illusion/lie, Hold Keeper doesn’t have a high Battle Stat, but is that Physique Stat wrong? 80? That seems very high for a certain Knight…guess there are benefits to being a figment of imagination made real.
