At a young age, Will was paralyzed from the neck down. As life went on, he continued to lose all hope that anything could be done.

On his seventeenth birthday, his family is contacted by an up and coming startup working in virtual reality and AI. They promise that inside their new VRMMORPG, Will would be able to feel again.

Move again. 

And all they require is an NDA, and the ability to move Will into their state of the art medical facility to monitor him as he tests the new equipment alongside their burgeoning AI. It sounds almost too good to be true, but Will's condition is only worsening, and so they hastily agree. 

 

With a disorientating flash of light, and a brighter smile, for the first time in a decade, Will sprints through the dark building he's found himself in..

A savage cackle and a terrified scream...

I ended it all on a whim.

I'd never really been attached to my life, but I havn't wanted to cause undue stress or sadness to those around me, so I stayed. However, once upon a daytime, a whimsy came upon me, an excitable happy whimsy, where I was away with the fae, and I had no cares or worries in the world, it was beautifull and delightfull, and never before had I loved those around me more, however there is an end to everything, even happines, and so, as the darkness and depths of numbness and procrastination loomed, I decided that I could not return, be it over my dead body that i return to the numbness of before, and I knew myself quite well you see, I knew it would only be a matter of time before I surrendered myself, as there is nothing more insidious than numbness you see, so, I knew I had to take drastic measures. 

And now I'm here, in a world I'd always dreamed of. I'm a peasant here, I'm poor, I'm weak, and the only people I matter to are my friends and family and it is delightfull, it is one of the best feelings to exist in this state, where numbness cannot exist.           And the system, oh the system, it feels like an old friend after all the stories, one that you sit back with and relax, it is the greatest motivator I have ever had to simply watch your skills improve and see tiny improvements quantified, and it is even more enjoyable to try and find loopholes, to find the seams in the system and play with them, watching others see them is a truly beautiful experience.

Author- Hi all, this is my 3rd story on here, I'm trying to get better at writing, and hope to one day become an author full time, I'm going to make a patreon at some point, but I won't be hiding chapters in it I don't think, I don't know what incentives I'll have if I'm being honest, I just know that I'm going to try my best, and if I disapear for months and stop posting, I've probably surrendered myself, so, apologies from me in advance. Also, a big thank you to anyone reading and please leave a review with your opinion "-) 

(Also also, anyone who feels like the character in my story feels, please note that this is entirely a work of art, and sadly this world is truly merely a dream, I love you all, and my dms are always open for chats)

 Also, as an aside, I should be posting atleast one chapter every day

Enter the journey of our MC in the fantasy world of Marakhnar, a literal world turned into a virtual reality game and later into reality itself. But unlike others, he was foolish enough to choose the hardest start while he knew that luck was rarely ever on his side.

A rework/reimagining of my original SEP, and it took place far to the original story's future. Contain explicit sexual content but not down to the last story. Gore and trauma are light with a mix of some science and all kinds of magic. Characters didn't fall in love for no reason, and all have their own goals.

Claire Aireneth needs to write her entire thesis in one week. As a student of the prestigious Royal Academy, her work on magitech automatons needs to not only hold sway with her professors, but keep in step with her late mother, who practically wrote the book on humanity's mechanized companions. If she fails, she'll have failed in her only self-given purpose: to become as good an engineer as dear ol' ma.

Focusing the other half of her energy on keeping herself from keeling over in an anxiety attack, she does her best to weigh in her options. After hours of thought, she's at the verge of giving up hope on it altogether, until she realizes she has a unique edge on her fellow peers when it comes to doing research in a unique environment;

A very unique environment.

Her father is the kingdom's only magitech substation rounds officer. An incredibly important job that only requires a single person. It's through him that the magic powering the city's tens of thousands of devices operate smoothly from his light weekly tweaks, for it's industrial automatons that do the rest of the work for him.

It's illegal to go down there, but Clare has no choice.

Going undergound into the substation system, she finds much, much more than a few simple androids busy with their menial tasks.

She finds the kingdom's true form, and it doesn't want her down there one bit.
