Summary: In an alternate Earth governed by gods and ruled over by the all-seeing Oracle, where magic is the order of the day, there is a town called Marquette. This town has a terrible secret, one that seems to revolve around the enigmatic, enormous blue beetle creature named Ted. Traveling fortuneteller Booster Gold and his clockwork bird Skeets are determined to discover the truth about Ted, the Kord family, and the lost alchemist. But is the lost alchemist real, or is it as much of a fairytale as the story of the star who fell in love and fell to Earth? Will Booster be able to handle the cost when the gods demand payment? And what will Ted do when he is faced with an impossible choice and the wrath of the Black King?

Notes: This story is based on the Ted from Countdown: Arena, the giant bug. Thank you to my team of betas, [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory, [livejournal.com profile] doctorv, and [livejournal.com profile] pollums. Another tremendous thank you to [livejournal.com profile] pollums for the art and the posting help, because I am dumb and didn't code the fic while I was writing it. This is for the [livejournal.com profile] comicsbigbang!
