"The world is unfair and unjust…
that's the second time I've said that, haven't I?"
Gin Sakato and Ringo Akanami's somewhat eventful life continued together with his ever so increasing number of companions in the unpredictable world they live in and discover its urban obscurity, as they blur the line of the 'unbelievables', 'believables', and the obliterated fourth wall. New people and new happenings came to their life as they move forward in the hardships and mishaps that are bound to test their individual strengths to survive in this (normal) world.
But the sun's hope comes shining down after the rain of despair and sometimes, rainbows of bliss spreads in the horizon. Remembering the past, living in the present, and molding the future is what they have learned and instilled to their minds as their individual roles. And therefore, the journey of life continues awaiting the uncertain tomorrow.
This is a sequel to Normal in Parenthesis.

Two brilliant young me, Reinhard von Musel and Yang Wen-li, are forced to flee the countries of their birth and become refugees on opposite sides of a century long galactic war.

Their choices will shape their adoptive homelands forever, and their clash will decide the future of the galaxy.

Part One - Speaking in Tongues
When Yang Wen-li’s father dies, the only thing that he inherits is a mountain of debt, which can only be paid off with fifteen years of his life. Wanting to escape that indentured servitude, Yang flees his homeland and takes up a false identity in the Galactic Empire, a hyper-stratified society where stepping out of line is punishable with imprisonment or death.
Yang enrolls in the Imperial Officers’ Academy to study history, but despite his unusual and unmistakeable talent as both a tactician and a scholar, his classmates resent him for being a visible outsider. When tensions at the school boil over and several of Yang’s classmates attempt to murder him, Yang finds an unlikely ally in the top student in the class: the aloof Oskar von Reuenthal. But Reuenthal and Yang both have secrets, secrets which could destroy both their lives and their newfound friendship.

The protagonist, Daniel Lead, after committing a certain crime for a certain reason, will be part of this classroom starting now. Being 15 years old, can he change his situation before he is 18 years old and goes to jail for what he did?

When Ryan Glasser, (an emo kid by heart) kills himself after having a good day at school turn horribly bad, he is forced to stand before his maker for final judgment of his soul. With Ryan Thinking life was just a game he could just end and throw away without any consequences, he is offered a deal to live his next life in a real-life RPG world full of swords, magic, misery, memes, and Mondays with nothing to help him along the way but a magical cellphone full of his music to get by in his afterlife.
A real-life RPG you say? That sounds like perfect place to spend eternity! What’s the catch?
Well first of all, this “Server” is in a nightmarish beta stage that has two trapped goddesses engaged in an everlasting brutal holy war between each other that has recently turned into a stalemate. Ryan is supposed to kill one of these goddesses somehow. (Technically there is a third goddess, but no one really cares about her)
Secondly Ryan can’t die in this world without completing his mission here. If he does, straight to hell he goes.
Thirdly, right from the start of spawning into this world, he has an annoying clingy emo/scene cat-dog rogue girl fall in love with him. This would be great in all If Ryan didn’t hate furries. Ryan will realize no matter how hard he tries he just can’t lose this clingy disaster.
Forth: Living in an RPG world is great and exhilarating but when the class you choose to roll seems to be just as emo as you are, interesting things are going to happen.
You better hold on tight; destiny holds in store for Ryan a Twisted Romance, tons of betrayal, a life full of dark twists and turns, and an adventure that will make or break him in this strange new world.
Welcome to Lectioterra Adventurer! (Please DO NOT buff the Raid boss)
(Please note i am quite aware that book one was written with quite a few thousand errors. I took a break from writing for ten years and had to relearn a lot of things. I learned quite a lot from writing 100+ chapters so far. I will go back and edit book one’s chapters after I get book two finished. If you all want to point out the errors in the earlier chapters I will gladly edit those things ASAP)
After the end of the Cold War, superpowers taking the form of bacterial colonies on one's heart begin appearing around the world. A new class of law-enforcing "hosts" is established over the next decades, given legal immunity to deal with violent criminals however they choose.
In modern day, Mia Schultz is a young socially awkward lesbian. She's attacked by an unknown man and given the power to control a swarm of fire scarabs named Worldwide, and as she begins her new job at Urasaria Academy, she's soon pulled in to a mystery on Worldwide's true origins.
A strong focus on character development and superpowered fights.
This story is a first draft in the process of being finalized.
August 11th, 2020: Year One has been rewritten! You may need to restart your chapter; I apologize, but it's far better now. Optional Year 1 summer arc + Year 2 rewrite coming Soon (TM).
The world of Corozin had been ravaged by the malevolent Gods ever since its birth. Until the faithful arrival of the six Maidens, order was brought into the sacred lands now called Six Point. But this was eons ago, and through time, the Maidens were replaced with their newer generations to maintain order.
Save for the Maiden of Time. Her sudden disappearance left an empty void between the balance of the Maidens, resulting in cataclysmic events that would forever change the course of their world.
Embark on the adventure with Exrite – a relatively normal young man who sought for the forsaken Children of Balance; the Goddess that all Gods of Eastern Six Point feared. He believed in their sweet promise to liberate him from his curse of immortality, following the scent of their nectar into the heart of their sacred Domain.
But little did he know was that his ‘curse’ would inevitably become a catalyst that would slowly entangle him with the fate of Six Point, and more importantly, with the being who had ‘cursed’ him, and subsequent others who were forsaken by this person.
Exrite was supposed to be a normal man.
However, in a world dictated by countless supreme beings far and wide; above, and beneath – how could there possibly be a single truth?
Worlds will collide. Kingdoms will rise and fall. But above all –
This was the beginning of Exrite’s journey as the Exrenity.
In this world, everyone is cursed with a single fate: Become the most powerful. But those who do become powerful, they hate it. Power is misery and death is the solace.
Nazar, a weapon of mass destruction created by the ancient God of Destruction revolted against his creator a long time ago. While he did defeat his creator, the power he was given is still within him. He is cursed with infinite power, standing at the top of the celestial hierarchy. He has more power and wealth than he needs. But even then, he craves one thing; death.
He wants to die.
Power is misery and death is the solace, but he cannot achieve his only goal. He cannot die.
Perhaps that will change when one day, an ancient cosmic Goddess rises from her grave? Perhaps she will finally kill him? Or will she fall short before his awesome yet terrible power? Only time will tell.
This is a high cosmic story about the hypocritical life of the protagonist and how it affects everyone (and everything) around him.
Naturally, it features very overpowered characters with a lot of high stakes battles roaming across the cosmos.
Warning: Swearing, some suggestive sexual gestures/words, gore.
Feedback is highly welcomed.
(The story was originally named, God's Return, but I wanted to change it.)
Going back to save the world is tough; it's tougher when the process ends up radically altering your reality. When the new world Ash wakes up in differs from the old one in many ways, Ash will have to adapt his battle experience to a new world, and what are these mysterious Bloodlines that everyone fears?

A standalone tale about a modern student brought through time and space to a land of myth and fantasy. There, an escape attempt is underway and is quickly set upon by the prisoner's keepers. The stakes and tensions run high as the new arrival and the prisoner finish the escape and find themselves traveling through lands unfamiliar to both. Actions have consequences, however, and escape from Adympia is not so easily achieved. Follow the adventures of Amelia and Dexter as the pair flee from the clutches of the Elven empire of Adympia and travel the land beyond. What will they find there? What obstacles will they face? Only time will tell.
The gods play with the fates of people through their incomprehensible games. And what about you? Are you caught as well in the steely trap of destiny? Are you a pawn? Queen? Or maybe a future player? And what is the meaning of the game? What are millions of universes created and destroyed for? You will have to find out for yourself... The author himself is lost.
There is no story, no leading idea. There is only the infinite bending of everything and anything in the name of the triumph of meaninglessness. The author just pours endless streams of graphomania on the mind of careless readers.

This is a story about a somewhat normal human, on a hike on Hardangervidda in Norway, that end up walking out in Alfheimr instead of Earth. Alfheimr is one of the nine realms of the old Norse religion, home of the light elfs. Its quite a culture shock, and he don't really know the language, culture or religion. The decisions he make have consequences, and some will change Alfheimr.
He decide that if he's ever going to get back to Midgard he have to travel to a bigger town, try to find information, make money and so on. So he's trying to be smart, and pretends to be a mysterious wandering magician. Should be easy to fake right?
... and thats the first decision with gigantic consequences, since he doesn't know that only women do magic. A man doing magic is automatically unmanly. Oops.
Be warned; English isn't the Authors primary language, and its mostly written in first person view. The story progress will be slow.
As a sixteen year old commoner, your future is bleak. Worse, your appearance sets you apart from others. Your only achievement so far, is befriending the second son of the Lord of the Keep.

Before your friend leaves, there is murder and conspiracy! Magic left the land hundreds of years ago, all you have is your bow and hunting skills, nevertheless you must fight to survive and save another to have any hope of a future!
Note: The graphic isn't mine; it is a re-imagining of a few separate images, any objections by original artists let me know.
N.B. If you are looking for Sexual Content every chapter, or every second, third or fourth chapter this isn't the story for you - the Sexual Content is required for a plot device, not a way of life and the later chapters reflect that - please stop dropping Low Ratings when you feel I haven't met your idea of "fan service".
This is finished as much as a multi book vision can be finished. At 750,000 words give or take and very little readership I can only blame myself. I have learnt a lot, possibly forgotten a lot as well! I will probably return to the Chapters at some point - a touch up here and a touch up there. The second book though will probably remain in my head for a very long time, so yes "cliffs" although I hope the characters and their motivations are developed enough that you can have a good guess at the content of Book Two and tell me so I can confirm or deny!
This isn't a LITRPG where classes are developed, great foes are defeated by a hero of immense power. This is a story based within (I hope) a very real and consistent culture, that leaves breadcrumbs for the reader to work out what the heck is happening and why. This is a slow burn story as the MC is stumbling around discovering her new place and role.
Author's Note (Apr 2021): I dropped the Fantasy Genre for the Mystery Genre, because while the setting mentions magic, is it about past glories and trying to return to them. Whereas the MC from Chapter One doesn't understand her predicament and the range of mysteries she must solve to survive. If I have this wrong PM me and I will change this back.
Destiny is a strange force indeed.
One simple act can create a ripple, one simple change can cause a cataclysm.
One act outside of the individual would be enough to alter one's life no matter how insignificant that life may be.
This is the adventures of Allisa Reed, a young girl from our world who found the legendary sword Excalibur and taken to the magical world of Avalon. On the other side of the portal with her friends by her side, Allisa is forced into a conflict she is not prepared for, ordained as the Goddess Chosen to bring about one of two possible outcomes; Salvation or destruction.
This is more or less the first draft of this story. Currently working on a second draft.
Spelling and grammar is definitely my biggest weakness, particularly in my earlier stuff. I've done some editing and hopefully have ironed out most of these mistakes in my older chapters though I'm fairly certain there are some mistakes still left.
This story is ongoing. Updates are slow as I publish when a chapter is ready.
Expect long chapters for most of it. Just sort of my style.
