Welcome to Trintico

Their massive diets power the great nation Trintico.

Shevi is a big girl with a bright future. She needs to eating enough to keep a place on Wheel Three, and marrying into one of the biggest families in I Town. Jackson is a skinny kid. He needs to survive one more crime, then maybe he can get a legitimate job. They have no future together. But each time they meet, the attraction between them grows stronger until it threatens the status quo.
