Thousand Tales: Learning To Fly
by Snow Quill
Wings, Immortality, and a War of Trolls
When aging pilot Andre nearly dies in an airplane accident, he decides it's time to upload. He has his brain removed and scanned into Thousand Tales, a game where ordinary players compete with the AIs and former humans who live inside it. He takes full advantage of his new digital life, becoming a high-flying pegasus and learning the magic of the sky. He's just in time for a strange little war. The digital world seems overly cute at first, but there's more going on than people leveling up.
Spells and transformation are easy in this world, but building a society isn't. Can Andre fight in a way that will get his virtual land taken seriously, and equip his new friends to make a difference in the world of humans?

Surprisingly, this story is actually pretty good quality. I'm finding very few issues with it, although it can get a little weird at times.
I think if I were to point out one of it's larger flaws, if you could call it that, I would say this story might be a bit niche. For some people, there might be a little bit of discomfort with the inspiration it is VERY LOOSELY based on. I would suggest you ignore that and keep going. Once you actually notice the story for what it is, you might be able to enjoy it.
On a side note. There has been a review posted before me that is just utter bullshit. It provides no context on what they disapprove of in the story and merely posts a mediocre rating with a derogatory statement that honestly makes me disgusted with the review.
Ok! who showed the mascot humpers the internet.
