P.S. I'm only doing this for some fun and to pass the time :)
Local depressed teen finds the internet. Help her survive and do something in her life. Please.
Shigaraki Tomura is angry and wants to kill something. Actually, he really, really, really wishes to kill one thing. The Symbol of Peace, All Might.
He's... sorta bad at it, though. I mean, he could be better. He just isn't.
That's where you come in, reader. Here, you will control Shigaraki Tomura's actions, starting from before the USJ incident. Will you lead him to victory, even with meta-knowledge?
This story will be a quest, meaning that every single one of Tomura's actions will be decided through popular votes or write-ins. This quest might come off as easy to you, but with every change in Tomura's agenda, you're actually affecting U.A's future actions, meaning that meta-knowledge could only really be useful the first time you strike. The second time is gonna be much harder.
"Please calm down, Shigaraki Tomura-sama," Kurogiri said placatingly.
Heh. Calm me down?
[ ] Kill Kurogiri
[ ] Threaten Kurogiri
[ ] Calm down.
The choice is yours!
The camera views the actions of an aspiring serial killer.
How far and how close can he come to reality?
(Written to spite Rebirth of A Serial Killer by Kotrem and because I always wanted to write a serial killer series.
Any similarities to real people, places, and works are not to be taken seriously. Contains controversial content!
This is a repost of my fiction from Webnovel. Again, it was unpopular, likely because I cut it short.)
Beyond the pale thresholds of this earth, beyond the fury and roar of human splendor and human folly, there lies another realm. An entire body of worlds, occupying the same place in the universe as our own, yet entirely removed from ours and whole unto themselves. Some of them are only just around the corner, waiting to be discovered where they lay hidden deep within the mists of mundanity, while others hurtle invisibly above us through the trackless stars.
Between these worlds there lies the dark fog of the astral planes, where demons and feral spirits lurk in the shadows of existence. From the abyssal dungeons of the underworld to the farthest dimensions of the universe there are countless powers unfathomable to man, powers which if unleashed would lay waste to creation. Seeping through the cracks of reality is an endless stream of wild magic, wearing down the walls which separate worlds and piercing them with fissures. Standing firm against these chaotic tides are the Good Folk, the crafters and stewards of creation, who constantly rebuild and fortify the gateways between worlds. And manning the gates are those servants of the Good Folk who are their chosen soldiers from the ranks of man. Those born of earth who pledge their lives to the defense of their world and its people.
Those who are called Gate Marshals.
This series is the third entry in my fantasy anotholgy series "Journeys in the Fairworld". Unlike my previous works, it is being written as a serial. New installments will be posted as I create them (which will hopefully be quite frequently). I hope you will enjoy it (or at least be mildly amused).
Be sure to check out my other two novels set in the universe of the Fairworld, also available here on Royal Road!
