My idea is that there is a "Cursing Stone" upon a school's ground. The Cursing Stone, when a person's name is scribed upon it, curses them, and should they ever read their name on the Cursing Stone, they supposedly die. Living in a very superstitious part of the world, in order to prevent kids from reaching the Cursing Stone, people have built extensions on to the school to seclude that area so that the only way to reach the Cursing Stone would be to either be strong enough to break through solid brick walls, or to jump from the top of the school, which would be the dumbest fucking thing ever. The MC, after a series of unfortunate events, is pushed from the roof of the school, and lands in the area the Cursing Stone is located in. Half in jest, he writes the names of the bullies on the Cursing Stone under the impression that there's no way they'll ever actually see it. He simply liked the thought of them getting payback for that one moment, even if he knew it wouldn't come. After scribing the names of the bullies on the Cursing Stone, he begins to read names that have previously been written on it. It wasn't until he got to the bottom of the list that he found his name, and before he knew what was happening he found himself in The Midnight, with his appearance having changed completely. The Midnight was named by those who reside there, it's explained to him by a resident he first met upon arrival. Its explained that this is the area between the realm we reside in and the True Realm. It is where those who have been "cursed" come when they finally "die." It is explained that there exist two types of beings in this world -- those who fell, and those who were created, dubbed "Cursed Children" and "Lifeless." It is unknown why the Cursing Stone is as it is and it is unknown why Lifeless are created, but it is explained that both beings can escape. By forming a contract with Lifelesses, Cursed Children can, though barely and temporarily, spread the burden of their link to the Midnight with the Lifelesses and can, for a time, not only travel the Human Realm, but the True Realm as well. The True Realm may sound great, but rather it is a world composed entirely of everyone's truth, and the world took a different turn than it did in our own. Though births and deaths between the two bodies are simultaneous, the methods may differ, and it is unexplained how the two realm's are able to conform to the other's cycles of life and death. These "true bodies," a human's truth, act as their "human" counterparts would, but imagine if every subconscious thought and feeling and every suppressed personality trait and every suppressed emotion surfaced from the depths of one's mind and however drastically this would change their personality is the being of the True Body. ...And I'm not sure where to go from here. I'm not sure how to fit the realm of Truth, the ability to travel between the two realms, the Lifeless, the Cursed Stone or the contract of Lifeness and Cursed Children together, though this is the concept I thought of.
