Not really, I just named the book with a fancy name because I liked it! Haha!

Anyways, you may think of this as a compilation of incredibly short stories amassed by an omniscient, omnipresent being (ME!!!) who has the most honorable hobby of peeping at various beings at various worlds of various universessss from various periods of time.

Such stories may or may not have sequels due to my utter inability to focus on one thing and may or may not cause the feeling of dissatisfaction.

Read at your own risksss!! Muahahaha!!!

All it takes to ruin everything is one well-placed idiot.

John Iverson is just that idiot. Running out of money and prospects, he took a job for janitorial work, listed at twice minimum wage, with one provision: No questions asked or answered. 

This job, as to be expected, was something unsavory. In particular, it was for the world's largest secret government agency, a compilation of the subjects of a thousand different conspiracy theories, of the paranormal and unknown, and of the cutting edge of science: The Organization.

Most people would recognize that such a thing should be kept secret, and that sharing sensitive information obtained in the line of duty would be an extremely terrible and unsafe idea.

John is not most people.

In fact, he's more the sort of person to use his newfound knowledge to pedantically correct people on the internet, and then bask in e-fame.

 

The consequences of such include, but are not limited to: Assault, demonic summoning, grand theft auto, temporal manipulation, sudden dog ownership, trespassing, being held at gunpoint, a few pleasant dates, dismemberment, grooming, and the apocalypse.

Disciple.

I was there before Death was born. I was there when the Sea of Chaos formed. I was there when the first universe was born. I was there when life appeared for the first time. I was there at the dawn of time, and will be there for its twilight.

Long story short I am old and powerful. I would be called an Eldritch Abomination by many among you. This however is not my story. This is the story of my favourite human, a man who managed to surpass my expectations until the day of his death. A man to whom I personally taught the deepest secrets of Creation.

The story of my Disciple, born to a world within the Fayd. A man who was called many names. Godkiller, Guardian of the Gates of Death, My Left Hand, Destroyer, The End by his enemies. That Crazy Dude by his allies. I call him Sam-Sam, mainly to annoy him.

But primarily, this is a story of a man doing his life right. With all my wisdom I can’t think of him living a better life than he did, given his circumstances.

So gather round, for the story of my dear friend.

I do not mind.

The silence of the halls, that lasted for 13 long years

. I do not mind at all, for it was all part of my revenge

. I do not mind, my carefully sewn lips opening in front of a stranger prince, uttering lying words as I speak for the first time in forever.

“It’s a pleasure to meet you, Julian, I hope we will have the best relationship ever.” I would say, as I clutch his hands in my gloved ones, happily taking him around my home.

I do not mind the lies, as I carefully sharpen my blades, ready for the attack that would give me everything, the throne, my vengeance, my voice.

But what’s this?

I am not the only one who is lying.

No, someone in this castle, this building, is carrying a filthy sack of untruths that would bring my plan crashing down.

“Aurelia, I’m so glad I met you...”

But somethings holding me back from finding them.

Somethings holding me back as my castle walls crumble and foreigners overtake the rooms, and as I slowly fall from the princess to the criminal.

It's then when I realize that I am not the master, but the fool.

The Day the King Died

The Day the King Died

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Tragedy Male Lead Strong Lead Multiple Lead Characters Magic Profanity Gore High Fantasy

In a dark cell, sat chained, a dark man. Foot steps thumped down the spiral stairs leading to his lonely cell. Heavy footsteps that bore the burden of a man who killed his father. A flickering light finally bounced energetically against the far wall beyond the cell bars as the steps approached. Then the man emerged with a torch and a bowl. He placed the pitch covered stick in a holder on the wall. 

He fished for his key and slid it into the padlock on the iron gate that stood between him and the beast he had created. 

"How did it come to this old friend?" Said the jailor, gripping one of the cell bars with one hand. The man chained to the wall did not respond. He hung his head and stared at the floor.

"I hope you're happy. Their armies are here now. They stretch as far as the eye can see. No one will help us. They might march down here and gut you too despite all the good you did them," the Jailor continued into the silence. He carefully placed the bowl between himself and his friend.

The chained man made no move to take it or even indicate that he noticed. The jailor sighed and exited the cell. The door squeaked as he swung it shut behind him. The key slid into the lock with a metallic clink.

The jailor walked back to the stairs and grabbed the torch from its holder. He sighed turning to face the chained man once more. "I know he was like a brother to you. I know you would have - did - go to hell and back for him, but he wasn't the man you grew up with."

“You knew what would happen,” The chained man’s voice rattled and scratched. “You knew how I would feel.” Anger creeped into the unsettling mixture that was his voice.

“You’re right. I knew what you would do the day the King died. I just wish -”

The chained man laughed at the remorse he heard. At least it seemed to be a laugh, but the grating sound could easilly be misinterpreted as choking. “I wish," the jailor continued to the man's rasping laugh, "you could know what I know, see what I have seen.” 

“You wish you had killed me when you had the chance!” The chained man bellowed suddenly straining against his chains. His captor turned away and his shoulders drooped as he started back up the stairs, his footsteps heavier than when they had come.

Dalton was always a nice place. Always had been. When that new couple moved here, we were all ecstatic. They were wealthy, but not arrogant, always willing to help out their neighbors. All around the perfect kind of migrant. They brought a child with them. Jacob. He was beautiful, just like his parents. He had his mother's beautiful hair, and his father's beautiful eyes. But he was different. He wasn't social, or nice, like his parents. He mainly kept to himself. Until one day he didn't. Strange tales, of the boy running around the neighborhood at night started to pop up. Of sacrificing children and dark rituals. The average person dismissed it as just that, rumors. But those of us that had seen the boy, knew the truth. His eyes were no longer the deep, vibrant color of his father. They were the green of rot, his skin the color of a corpse. The devil had taken the boy, and, like a disease, he was spreading his curse.
