    Summary

    “Sometimes the circus reminds me of a passage,” Namjoon starts. “One of Caliban’s lines, actually. I imagine it’s different for you, living there, but to me it’s…” He trails off, thinking. “It’s such a beautiful place. You never want the daylight to come, and it’s disappointing when the dawn inevitably arrives. It becomes like the most breathtaking dream. And just like Caliban says, ‘that when I waked, I cried to dream again.’”

    *

    A circus arrives that is only open at night. Behind the scenes, two rival magicians trained since childhood are locked in a duel that can only have one winner. Tangled in their web is a fortune teller, a contortionist, and two best friends who are imbued with magic they don't fully understand. As the stakes rise higher and the game stretches on, it may take a boy desperate to belong to keep the Circus of Dreams from becoming a nightmare.

    Summary

    There is no sign announcing the event that popped up in the grassy knolls outside of Novigrad seemingly overnight; but, painted on the side of the black ticket booth in curling white letters and illuminated with tiny light bulbs is The Night Circus.

    . /\ . /\ . /\ .

    No one knows where it came from. No one knows what it is. All they know is that the Night Circus has come to town.

    And you've been invited.

    Summary

    It’s an illusions show, someone in the public explains, before someone else shushes them. The lights die out, in the order they appeared. For five seconds, no one breathes, no one blinks, just waiting for something else to happen. Wanda’s skin crackles with the force of magic in the air.

    Then the magician appears, slowly: they can first see just his white gloves, the handkerchief tucked in his front pocket, the cut of his black suit. Finally, slowly, the last to appear, is his smile: warm and kind, which makes the children in the audience let out a sound of joy, again. His eyes are, determinedly, focused on Wanda’s.

    Summary

    A circus that only opens at nightfall. The same cast performs the acts, no matter how many years have passed. Individuals who once came as children recognize the smile of the lion tamer or the confidence of the acrobats, wondering if they are the same people from all those years ago. But of course, such a feat is impossible – even for a circus.

    When a young woman named Elizabeth enters the circus, she is instantly swept up in its enchantment and mystery. But when a strange man pushes her onto a train that can traverse the world and results in her having no way to return home, she finds herself stuck in the company of the circus. Only by befriending the actors and assistants behind the scenes is she privy to learn the secrets behind éternité – and finally leave the circus.

    [Inspired by and fused with the world and aesthetic of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Content spoilers for the book are not present.]

    Summary

    The same words that have been whispered around the country for years now — the circus that travels with the moon. The circus that appears suddenly like clockwork, the new moon announcing its arrival, but the location always left a mystery until it’s not. No announcements in the paper precede its arrival, no advertisements printed on black and white ink are posted throughout the town. One day it is not there, and the next, it simply appears.

    Summary

    The Circus of Dreams has many tents. Too many to count, and far too many to see in one night.
    Some of the more frequent Circus goers even claim they could spend every night of their lives wandering the Circus and never find all of them. And, maybe, they could be right.

    Summary

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it; it is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

    On the surface, Le Cirque des Rêves is a wonder and a delight to all who enter through its gates. Its allure is undeniable: a mysterious travelling circus, a self-contained world open only at night, constructed entirely in black and white and full of spectacles and tents that defy reality and stretch the very limits of imagination.
    But behind the scenes, two young magicians, Will, the enchanter’s tempestuous son, and Hannibal, the sorcerer's vicious apprentice, find themselves locked in a deadly magical contest against one another at the behest of their teachers. Much to their dismay, as, as their ardour and fascination for each other grows, the circus that is their lives, their battleground and the testament to their feelings for one another begins to fall apart. And everything else with it.

The trucks kept going until they had found their new home. By midnight, The Circus became alive and only those invited could explore the Big Tops of Night Vale.

    Summary

    Alya tries to find answers when at the magic circus of mysteries, but everyone is cryptic and unresponsive. She'll do everything she can to get her big break and show everyone that she's a true reporter. (Very loosely inspired by The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern)

    "This circus though, well, this was different. This was Le Cirque Disparaître. Le Cirque Mystérieux. La Nuit Joyeuse. This was the circus of rumors, of myths, and above all, Alya knew she was not going to miss it."

    Summary

    "The heart of the tale and the ideas behind it are simple. Time has altered and condensed their nuances, made them more than story, greater than the sums of their parts. But that requires time. The truest tales require time and familiarity to become what they are." -The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern

     

    Within a mysterious circus, its Inventor and Illusionist fall deeply into love.
