Dragonfall

Dragonfall

This fiction is based on a short story I wrote inspired by a prompt on r/WritingPrompts.

Contrary to my plans, I haven't sketched out the story in detail or written anything ahead of time. I've discovered I don't do well at that. I'm just writing this thing and we'll see where it takes us, OK?

Nothing every came easy to Ryan Shakespeare, but as an elite British Army sniper he had found a niche that suited him, right up to the point at which he found himself summoned to a world far from his own to fulfil the job of a champion. Luckily, Ryan arrived with his experimental sniper rifle, so surely killing the dragon and getting his chance to go home would be a simple job, right?

But Ryan should have known better, because nothing ever comes easy.

Caught up in the politics of the Draconic League, Ryan will need to keep all his wits about him and use every resource at his disposal if he's going to persuade these people to let him do his job and go home.

Box Aart

Box Aart

Anthony vs Waihon. The battle of the ages, the Oreos vs the Chocos...

Or is it the Chocos eating the Oreos bashing the Gummies?

Or the Gummies wielding the Chocos creating Anthony?

Whatever. Even the poor author doesn't know what is happening.

Is there any hope for you mass-murdering, M&M eating, blaspheming mortals?

Note: this was a de-stressing writing exercise, not an actual story. I wrote this uncaring of proper syntax, so, yeah.

Blade of Exaction

The Bastard

Horizon of War

Horizon of War

A man wakes up like a train crash victim. He loses his memory and finds out that he’s thrown into a medieval paradise. Lush green meadows as far as the eyes can see and the idyllic farming community that welcomes him.

The man, Lansius, spends two painstaking years learning the language and how to write. It’s not a bad life and he naively believed that things are going to be the same. War pulled the rug over his fancy idea; kill his friends, separates his family, and enslaves the rest.

An epiphany came that there are only two viable choices: either become a victim and accept the chains or risk it all to become part of the ruling class even when it means becoming a mere pawn. Using his intellect and vague understanding of the art of war, Lansius resolved to fight.

Nyla Darke

Nyla Darke

Nyla Darke is in her late teens when the worst happens to her. She dies. But having been a truly good person throughout her life someone with REAL power givers her a choice. Go on to heaven and the afterlife, or live a second life in a world grounded in many of the gaming principles she knows. Understanding that a second life is something that few get to choose she chooses just that.

This is a story about a second chance at life from a woman who didn't get that chance the first time.

I haven't decided what this story will include. This is currently a slice of life story, but may include dark times, swearing, graphic content, sexual content  or more, and so is tagged as such.  I have a very light outline of what is to happen but Nyla's story is her own and may change on a dime.

This will be a LITRPG story. It will also be heavily influenced by Azarinth Healer and He Who Fights With Monsters. The stats at some point may not be shown as heavily as in those stories as this is more about Nyla than it is about her stats.

Dialogue will play a heavy part in this story, whether Nyla is alone or with others, I prefer a story where the chracters interact. Even if it's with themselves.
