His Majesty's Immortal Academy

When you wake up in a new world, you expect a certain kind of… reception. So what happens when the perfect opportunity turns out to be the last thing you ever wanted?

The world of Ænerith is one of adventure—where anyone can cultivate to gain Skills or a Class. It’s a place where wars are waged over resource-producing Dungeons, and Monsters threaten deadly, otherworldly incursions. Grandest of all is His Majesty’s Immortal Academy: a mobile bastion and center of learning for the best aspiring Immortals of this, or any, age!

For one young girl, however, this world is far from grand. When her congenital illness leaves her without much longer to live, she goes down the only path left to her. Taking a mysterious offer, she uses a cursed Tome to reach across the Expanses—pulling on the only hope she could find.

But in the end, she failed.

Now, a poor fool finds himself in an unacceptable position. Worse still, the unlikable sod is stuck with no way out, all while something seems to be screaming in the back of his mind. If only he could hear the voice?

No, that would be ins

 

Wait, what was happening again?

 


 

Okay, fancy intro done! 

A quick note to everyone: I’m a new writer and quality is rough in the beginning. It’s slow, introspective, uses bright colors (first few chapters only), and is something that I’ll seriously reconsider if I come back to re-write the story later (I won’t do so while the story is in progress). The length was overly long as well, so I split the early chapters into parts. I get better about that after chapter 16. Lastly, my story does use a lot of LitRPG elements, however menus and the like don’t start actively playing a role until chapter 19.

Still, all the mistakes helped me learn so I can’t regret it!

I will warn, however, that this story contains sensitive topics such as mental illness, self-harm, loss of loved ones, and body-dysmorphia. Please avoid if these are triggering you. Also, the sexual content tag is for language used, mostly due to the crude protagonist—who starts off very unlikable (that does change during the story, and his lack of agency picks up around chapter 16).

Finally, I decided to do batch writing so my release schedule is no longer consistent (it used to be Tuesdays and Fridays). When I do have more story to post, it will likely follow the old schedule until its all out. In between drops, don't be surprised if the story falls into Hiatus. Thanks!

I love the thoughts of the protagonist, as it feels more like an actual first person compared to other stories where it's mostly narrator with a little protagonist. Everything is well here, no-one goes ins-...  

Uh, what was I saying? Anyway I love the story so far, 5 stars! \o/

I dropped this book after chapter seven. Up to this point there has been practicaly nothing but one long internal monologue by the protagonist and his many internal voices portrayed in too many colors.

 

maby the story gets a plot in the future but I just couldn't take another any more of it.

This story is extremely slow for at least the first 200+ pages, which is where I gave up. For comparison the most recent forty pages I read were a single scene of him getting dressed like a loli by a pervy demoness, and him completely freaking out about it.

If you're a masochist who likes reading about loli's in compromising positions, and MC's who are insane and constantly freaking out, then try this story.

Frankly I don't mind this sort of stuff in stories, but not when that's all there is and it's this drawn. I was excited about the magic academy stuff, but that never happened, and at this rate I'm thinking the author will drop the story before they even get to the academy.
