Long ago, the humans triumphed over the dragons, sealing them into human mortal bodies now known as dragonoids. The dragonoids became enslaved by the humans and use them as military weapons by the power of the Vesryn Pulse. With this newfound magic, mankind divided its empire to four and wages war against themselves for their own selfish ambitions.
A set of dire events occurred, pushing a single man to the limits of his sense of justice. Betrayed by his countrymen and losing his friends, lover, and honor; Xenon Wingate rises from the depths of hell and finds himself in a state of inner rage; a cemented resolve to kill everyone who has done wrong to him. He enters the Dragon Knight Academy with his dragonoid slave Serena Maizono and challenges the Five Pentagram Knights as a condition for acquiring an army. This will be the first step to execute his ultimate plan of revenge to satisfy the tingling sensation of his wrath.
Vesryn Pulse: Wrath of Xenon follows the action-filled story of a man who loses himself into his thirst for blood and revenge. However, he will soon learn that the payback comes at a far greater price than he could ever imagine.
An anthology of creepy short stories written by me. Stories about monsters, shadows, and the dark. I just want to make your skin crawl. Maybe wear it around for a little. Do a little jig.
Come hang out and let's see where the night takes us.
I'll be watching.
The Queen of the kingdom of Arx is having an affair with her oldest childhood friend, right under the King's nose. The King of Arx, however, is not only fine with that, but, in fact, is encouraging it, as the King is a lover of men. Arx needs an heir to the throne, and the King plans to claim whatever child his Queen and her bodyguard conceive is his own, but in Arxian politics secrets have a price, and affairs can tear a kingdom apart. Arx teeters on the brink of chaos, and all while the nearby kingdom of Nihilus threatens Arx with holy war.
The Crusade of Stone and Stars is a cautionary tale about two kinds of leaders: the controlling and the irresponsible. Because of the actions of these two rulers, strife will befall both Arx and Nihilus, as well as upon those they love.
In near future humankind is engaged in the remorseless conflict with first alien race they encountered. But some of the important battles are fought far away from battlefields, war has layers, always, everywhere.

Everyone makes promises. But above all, everyone breaks promises. And nobody can die unless their broken promises are atoned for.
Sayhas was a killer.
He was a mindless blade. A mercenary, a brigand, an outlaw Thief, Assassin. Murderer. He's done it all.
Now, he's had a change of heart; he wants to go home and grow old by a fire with the ones he holds dear. But the past cannot be so easily forgotten, and grievances of long ago haunt him at every step. Instead, he travels the world, waiting for old friends to come and collect their dues, hoping that there will come a day when he can finally go home. Hoping that his web of broken promises won't swallow him up.
Unfortunately, Sayhas' talents have caught the unwanted attention by the gods themselves. And when even the god's nasty webs are intertwined with Sayhas' own, he has two options: To run and pray it all blows over. Or to fight, and to pick a side.
In a world built on promises, broken ones will always exact a toll.

Almost everybody that has some sort of talent as there genes expand and improve. Marcus is but a pebble in a mound of boulders, and has no idea how to achieve more than his pitiful life as a mortician’s assistant.

In 2036 a small population of newborns of any species began being born with abilities akin to magic. 1 year olds bursting into flames without being burned, pigs with the ability to fly, and psychic monkeys became the norm. Now in 2060 these "Kin" as they are call are highly sought after whether its for communications, building, or a multitude of other things. The most popular however is contracter work. People from every corner of the world pay top dollar to have "kin" work for them specifically for the less than reputable jobs.
YUG "Noob" Unkown was born for this life. Quiet, skilled, and incredibily deadly he could accomplish any mission before anyone even knew he was there. Little information is shared about him. Some say he was trained by assassins, others say he is death's reaper but those are all just exagerated rumors. After all those who knew the truth are already dead. He may not play nice with others but he doesn't need to in his line of work, well at least he didn't until now.
Fey Weiss started in the dirt. Born in the ghetto of the ghetto, the only way she knew how to get by was to take. If she wanted it, she took it. If someone tried to stop her she made them regret it. She was never subtle and you could easily track her by the carnage and and broken bones left in her wake. This cycle repeated for years until someone offered her a job. After that job Fey Weiss was gone. Killed and replaced by the murderous brawler known as Fey "Mag" Blustrunstig. One thing never changed though. After her first partner, she was alone. She stole alone, fought alone, survived alone and she liked it. To her, partners were a liability. Guess she'll just have to deal with it.
The world of 2060 waits for no one.

A mage's quest for vengeance quickly devolves into a fight for survival when he and his charge are dragged into a nightmare realm filled with terrors unlike anything they've seen in the waking world.
Eleanor meant the world to Titus. So when an opportunity to bring her murderer to justice appears, Titus jumps on the chance. His quest, however, would mean traversing the dangerous world of Nivandor, a land infested with monsters, mage hunters, and corrupt kings–nothing he and his lord, Lady Priscilla, couldn't handle.
Their plans change, however, when both of them are dragged into a nightmare realm, a dimension filled with strange and powerful terrors unlike any they've ever seen. Titus's skill as a kinetic mage is put to the ultimate test as he must defend his lord from the increasingly dangerous monsters that hunt them as they desperately search for the three keys that would open the Wakening Door, their only means of returning to the real world.
But can they find the keys before the end of the third night, the night when the Night Terror, a nigh-unstoppable monster, appears? For while death can be avoided in the nightmare realm so long as the Night Terror slumbers, when it awakens, there will be no more places to hide and no more second chances.
The valley of water,
a city of fire,
the graveyard of angels.
Three keys for the Wakening Door,
three nights to pass.
The Night Terror will stretch its wings and soar,
and fill the world with broken glass.

This is a work in progress that I hope to update every 3-4 weeks. Between graduate school and work, delays may happen, but I will try my best to keep production on schedule. There are bound to be grammatical mistakes/inconsistencies here and there since I won't be able to hire an editor until I have enough content to justify doing so. Until then, I hope the mistakes don't get too much in the way of the story. Enjoy!

I found this diary today, inside a ruin by the sea. It’s in a pretty good condition so I’ll try to write a little. I think it would be good for me.
Maybe I should start by introducing myself: Hello, my name is Anna. I’m fifteen years old, and I travel the world in my airplane. I like fresh fruit and tomato soup. Right now, I’m sitting outside my tent, on a hill overlooking the ocean. I’ll have to hurry up and finish writing before the sun goes down.
New chapters on Wednesdays, hopefully.

This is fan fiction of different stories I have in mind of various anime characters fighting each other. I tried Jump Force on PS4, and the story was very underwhelming. So here is my own take, an unofficial Jump Force remake.
Most or all chapters will be standalones. I don't yet know if I want this to be a series.
Don't blame me if I can't remember all the moves each anime character has. My writing will all depend on how far I've watched different anime. But if people would like to suggest fights they'd like to read or want to remind me of different moves each character has, I welcome feedback.
“Ugh…” a fatigued voice murmurs, before falling back to sleep. A ray of sunshine lands directly on its eye, causing a frown to form on its face “Did I forget to let the curtains down again” the voice utters dazedly as it turns his body in order to escape the rather uncomfortable feeling of having its eye lasered by sunlight. Now noticing the tickling feeling on his nose and the unusual hardness of his “mattress”, the figure starts to awaken. “What’s go-“opening its eyes the figure was about to shout out in frustration, but as soon as its brain registered what was actually in front of him, well lets just say it was a bit of a shock.
