It's 2026 and VR is here. Follow the MC as he embarks on a journey to a new world, with his imagination as a weapon and his vision as a guide.

Witness his adventures when his Vision clashes with Reality(Virtual), which leads him through many events and meetings - good, bad, funny or sad... Will he just play a game or live a life?

Overlord's Rise

Overlord's Rise

NOTE: This is a story I wrote a bit of before finding that RRL had started hosted fanfics, but I thought I could share what I have of it just for shits and giggles. It may not be updated, unless it gets a good turnout.

In the world of Asteria, a warlord arose from the fighting clans that dominated the lands in the central continent of Aphrona. His might and his power eventually stretched over all of the known world, and he used it to become as a god amongst the various races.

All forms of fighting, thievery, and other negative traits were ruthlessly subdued, and the united lands enjoyed its first, and longest period of civility. It was a golden age that lasted centuries.

Until the Overlord was viciously slain by summoned 'Heroes', people who came from other worlds and who's growth seemingly knew no bounds.

After his death, the entire world fell into ruins.

That was three thousand years ago, and suddenly the Overlord opens his eyes for the first time since his death. And promptly finds himself reincarnated as the weakest creature in the known world.

An Imp!

This is the story of his rise back to power, and of his desire for revenge against those fools who wronged him and set the world back into endless ages of brutal warfare, greed, and infighting.

NOTE: This story does or will have sexual content, blood and gore, and probably some cursing tossed in somewhere along the way.

NOTE: This story is in a Re:Monster-like diary format. It is not formatted with tables, so everything is a little jumbled. I will not be fixing it unless people like it.
Existence of The Irregular 2 - Reincarnation

Existence of The Irregular 2 - Reincarnation

Little Brother of Pandora, Lucius enter a cycle of rebirth and reborn as Liu Xiao Yu. In the universe of Wuxia, how is Lucius or Liu Xiao Yu, content with his new life in a new universe?

Author Note: CD referrence. If you knew this, and yeah I'm a fan of IET.
Rebirth+

Rebirth+

Rebirth+ is the first VRMMO. It's been a long time coming, but it was made possible through the VLAM(Virtual Link Access Machine). A fully submersible game with an A.I. environment on par with the real world.

Rating Mature for some gore-related wounds and deaths. If you don't like the blood, this is not for you. However, not every chapter has this.
Dice

Dice

Without further ado, let me introduce you to Dice.

We follow the soul of a mortal as he is murdered, then thrown into a absolutely new world. We will follow him, or now her, as she journeys across a brand new fantasy world. We will meet friends as they break down her icy heart. We will eat food as our Mc slays delicious creatures and harvests aromatic herbs. We will crush lords and crown kings as our MC step onto the stage of politics. We will see her become the makings of a legend one slow step at time. All this, our MC will do. The plot demands it. Or rather, the author guarantees it because she is an ambitious person and wants to make a masterpiece. Ufufufu~

But first. Our MC has to grow up. Time doesn't magically skip forward you know!
The story is still VERY EARLY, nothing has yet to begin. Don't expect any interconnected plot elements in the beginning, it's all slice of life and world building, although still important. Would a infant be trying to save the world instead of enjoying a normal fantasy childhood?
Expect Mister plot to make his first appearance at Ch 50+.

From the author: This is a """"realistic"""" reincarnation story, with emphasis on the letters R-E-A-L. MC will not be ridiculously overpowered at age 5 no matter what Greyrat may say. Nor will she be personally killing anyone at the beginning of the story. This story will attempt to stick to real world """"common sense"""" as much as possible, and real life tells me you cannot swing a sword much less lift it at 5.There will be a a bit of technical biology here and there to enhance your understanding of the world I am building.

Warning: The mature tag is for the rough language that is used, although it will lessen as the MC grows. Dark content will be present but there will be warnings. The tragedy tag is because apart from the MC no character will have plot-armor to prevent """"true death"""". Of course, the author promises she will try not to cause too many manly tears in her readers. She isn't a sadist, unlike a certain man named George.

"""Alea Iacta Est"""" - Julius Caesar, 49 BC, Crossing the Rubicon.

Final Symphony

Final Symphony

Dead... Twice... Kemard, a rare soul with extreme potential is given a choice. Will he choose to avenge his mother's death? Or will he fulfill his wife's dream? Placed on the Path of Eternity, he must make a decision: whether he'll move on, and find his place in existence, or hunt down his own path while clinging on to the past. And what path will he decide on? Eternity? or Oblivion?

(Note that this is a cyoa with reader interaction. There are two main paths, but at the end of every chapter after the first few will be a small choice that affects minute details. I expect to complete the story by June, and that includes both paths, so expect a release every few days or so. Also, since I'll be submitting this to my Institute in game format, I request anyone who reads to inform me of any loopholes or logic derps they find, and to vote on the choices. Most of the tags are placeholders, as they will be used much later in the story.)

The Swarm

The Swarm

The Swarm – a world spanning empire – feared by everything and everyone. Endless glory and food to all! No sickness, no poverty, no depression and no allies. Truly, the perfection of life! However, nothing lasts forever; not even the Swarm... The cowardly major races teamed up in an unprecedented alliance to fight the Swarm, but even that was not enough. What brought true doom to the Swarm came from the inside: a high-ranking General’s betrayal! An action that was more shocking than all the other races putting their differences aside and joining together. The Swarm’s strength came from their unity and this shook them to the core. The various Kings and Queens led their armies separately as a result, nullifying their greatest advantage – numbers! Only when the war was all but lost, did the Swarm finally reunite again for one last stand. Afterwards, only one Queen survived, and she would do anything to restore the Swarm to its former glory – even asking one of those 'Gods' for help. To reform the Swarm, a new leader must arise. No, not just any leader – the Emperor must return!

The Strongest Slime

The Strongest Slime

Strength, it has a different meaning to all of us and it can take form in many different ways. Whether it be the financial strength to be able to live without the need to worry about our next meal, or the emotional strength needed to carry ourselves through difficult situations. The only thing that matters is that you are able to posses it. Follow our protagonist as he loses the strength that he worked so hard to obtain only to realize that maybe it wasn't the type of strength that he needed all along.

Overseer (Dwarf Fortress x Worm)

Overseer (Dwarf Fortress x Worm)

A young woman gains the power to make elements of a saved game real. She must then survive the assault of a coordinated attack by some of the deadliest parahumans on the planet - he same group of murderhobos that caused her the mental trauma that resulted in her gaining her powers to begin with.

This is a crossover fiction between the most complicated game ever created, 'Dwarf Fortress' by Toady One, and an extensive grimdark superpower genre serial fiction called 'Worm' by Wildbow. It is violent and there are some references to sex in it, so it's probably not fit for young children to read, and persons not familiar with Dwarf Fortress or Worm might be confused by some elements, but I feel confident that it stands reasonably well on it's own.

This crossover is complete. I posted it here in it's entirety all at once. I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
