Deals with devils, intergalactic refugees, the power of music, and… donuts?

There is so much going on in the SF/Dark Fantasy mash up, but it’s so wonderfully done. It is the story of Katrina a transgender woman runaway violinist looking to make it as a YouTube entertainer. There’s Shizuka Satomi who Is looking for that last violin student to fulfill her deal with the Devil. Captain Lan Tran has smuggled her family to earth to escape the Endplague and now runs Starrgate Donut (while constructing a stargate). It’s about food, family (found and born), being true to yourself regardless of what the world says or believes, and stopping to feed the ducks. I highly recommend.
