Vitality

Vitality

To Ava, love is about as real as fairytales. But it might be that fairytales, myths, and magic have some truth to them after all — as well as the monsters that lie in the shadows. Or she could just be completely out of her mind.

After a mental breakdown and a move to a new town, everything changes when Ava clashes with a stranger with eyes as black as midnight and a terrifying sinister air. Her wishes to feel something again become granted. But Ava soon learns that not only is he as cold as he is beautiful, but he brings something out of her, stronger than ever, like fuel to fire — something she's desperate to bury. He haunts her dreams and waking life, and staying away becomes harder than she could have ever imagined, risking her life, her humanity, and the people that she cares about. Not to mention the fate of the world.

She's fighting for life. He's fighting for death.

What does it take to live? What does it take to love?

Emanations

Emanations

The greatest pinnacle of cultivation is comprehension of the dao. Through it, cultivators have been able to draw upon their insights into the fabric that forms all reality, manifesting the dao in the physical world. It is an eternal piece of knowledge, one that has existed for as long as the practice of cultivation.

But now, the immutable dao has changed. Masters find themselves unable to draw forth the powers that come from its comprehension.

In the preceding years, practitioners have struggled with their cultivation, and many have forever more had their cultivation crippled, or worse. As trouble stirs, tensions are rising within the Sects of the Immortal Lands. Taking advantage of the troubles plaguing the dao, cultivators throughout the Immortal Lands make their moves to seize control of power.

Li Xun has lived for three years on the run, after having been met with a devastating Qi Deviation in the course of his training. One chance encounter, however, sets his path back toward cultivation. Alongside his new mentor who possesses otherworldly knowledge and unique insights into cultivation, they seek to find the means to resolve the turmoil plaguing the cultivation world - for failure would have consequences beyond just their own world.

ISEKAI: I was reincarnated as the poorest King in the world.

ISEKAI: I was reincarnated as the poorest King in the world.

"If I had the power to change the world? Would I really do the right thing?"

 I thought my life was over when those bastards shot me, all my effort was in vain, my studies, my ideals.... Reduced to dust under the smell of lead.

 And yet here I was again, in the body of a child and with a crown on my head. 

 Ah, I see...

 I was reincarnated as a king in a different world, but even here things are no different. Corruption destroys the system and innocent people suffer the abuses of power. Nothing has changed and if I don't do something about it, nothing will change....

 (English version of my novel, ISEKAI: Reencarné como el Rey más pobre del mundo), the original novel was posted in wattpad in spanish. I'm the author and the owner of the rights.

Witch Hunt. A Warhammer Fiction

Witch Hunt. A Warhammer Fiction

The adventures of Adebar von Bolstedt continue!

Adebar von Bolstedt, fugitive noble scion of the Empire, stuck in the Great Forest of Talabecland, is gravely wounded by the bestial denizens of the dark wintery woods, only surviving due to the timely arrival of aid and relief in the form of the masters of this land.
What begins as a pleasant stay with the wild noblemen of Talabecland soon becomes a matter of faith and tradition as old as the Empire itself, when he finds himself trying to root out a coven of witches from a society that prides itself on rural living and knowledge of the mysteries of the wild.
This quest will either see von Bolstedt's shaken faith in his own god reforged into an intolerant blade, or shattered like ice.

Word from the Author
Greetings! 
Witch Hunt plays out in the much beloved Warhammer Fantasy setting (owned, of course, by Games Workshop). Do not fret, however, as I've made it a point to make the story digestible even to the uninitiated, and maybe even be a good introduction to the setting. 
This is the second part of the adventures of Adebar von Bolstedt, as such I recommend reading part one, titled "The Hand of Sigmar" first.
While I cannot claim the places, concepts and gods etc. mentioned within as my own, the story and all characters flowed from my own fingers.

Melancholic Dreams: One-Shot Collection

Melancholic Dreams: One-Shot Collection

The following One-Shots are stories that come exclusively from my dreams that I attempt to recall and portray to the best of my ability.

A vast majority of them are varying levles of romanticism or light-hearted adventure. Not all of them are complete nor have a theme, as they are dreams, so my attempts to finish them might come off rigid or humorous in nature.

Regardless, any I deem sufficient enough for public viewing will be added here.
