: so much fun doing this. The cast part was awesome, mostly because I got to play the part of WTH Casting Agency. Luis Luque as a sleek book thief, that's all I say.
And then I imagined the fandom.PROMPT
In an alternate world, books are the most essential commodity. Why is this so, and who are the brave (or not so brave) folks in the book trade? (Original idea by morganize

Perros de presa (Hunting dogs, I guess)SYNOPSIS
An alternate Earth. Technology advanced at a much higher rate than on our world and, therefore, e-books were adopted way earlier, dooming books to an early death. However, an unexplained disaster has created a post-apocalyptic world which is just barely recovering itself. Among the consequences, knowledge stored in electronic devices has been lost and the few paper copies left are among the most prized objects, second only to fuel.
There are two distinct book trades, with different contexts and aims.
One works for the rich and wealthy with access to technology. They're e-book archaeologists, trying to figure out such arcane stuff as 'format' and 'Oh My God, that em dash killed the work of seven years'. Most of them are scientists and like to be called Tinkers.
The other trade is more underground and is linked with the remnants of governments, the last organized religions and with the omnipresent revolutionary groups. They deal with the famed paper copies and their trade is way more dangerous. They call themselves Libreros, but most people call them Chantas. Most of them come from cultural backwaters where technology wasn't as developed.
The series chronicles the exploits of several of these as their paths cross.
Violeta is a young, promising Librera. Sumire is an agent working for an e-book trade ring. Together, they fight crime. Or, rather, unveil old conspiracies!( Arashi, ARgentinian people and pretty! )
