The impossible is possible, while the possible becomes nigh impossible. However, the possible still remains possible and the impossible remains impossible.
This is a paradox, something that makes no sense yet has interested the human mind for many years. In this book, a paradox is merely a human with special abilities that are earned through much difficulty. When a Human becomes Paradox, the one thing they have pondered over the most is something they can now wield. A scientist who wondered how time worked has now become an immortal being due to them ceasing the time-flow within their own body, and has gained the ability to alter time to some degree. A little child who always wondered how the stars worked can now become a dazzling star, to a certain extent, gaining the firey abilities of one, and also the gravitational pull of a star if they wish to use it. The most simple of things such as wondering how to draw can become a Paradox's focus, while the most complicated of things can be used by Paradoxes, albeit only few can use them.
This paticular story follows a man become Paradox called Alexander Cooper. His Paradox abilties are unique in a sense that only he has them. His Paradox is focused on the thought of a Paradox itself, how it is created, where it stemmed from, how it functions. This has lead to him having extremely odd abilties, but most of them are actually from other Paradoxes!

RIZE IS THE STORY OF THE FLAME OF THE SOUL THAT MADE A DRAGONS FIRE SEEM DULL AND COLD
A land of mythical beasts, magic and kingdoms of grand scale welcomes its first self-proclaimed 'Detective'. For someone gaining attention from powerful forces one would have to assume it's thanks to his professional demeanour, great style and amazing skills no?... If only that were the case... it seems he's made a name for himself because of his foul mouth, haggard appearance, mysterious background and most important of all, his inability to resolve anything. Though he does something immoral rather well, plants seed of mistrust in the hearts of his clients. By his words he doesn’t give two shits or a fuck about who you are or your circumstances, he simply provides you with the tools necessary to fix the problem yourself. He's made enemies along the way and cast himself in a dark light, but even that hasn't made him give a shit. Will anything?
Feel free to leave comments on grammar and whatnot as I will proactivley try to improve the readability. Hope you enjoy!

I wrote this Novella 12 years ago. I never quite completed it because I feared that my writing wasn't good enough. I was only 19 years old at the time, and had just published my first book The Secret Journal (no longer in print) two years earlier. I stumbled across my old writings of The Retreat From Babylon a little while ago, and I want to get some feedback as to what should be changed.
Mind you: I wrote this a long time ago, so please don't be discouraged by the poor writing. I intend to refresh it with my more seasoned writing skills.
Disclaimer: This novella was written from a Mormon perspective regarding a pre-apocalyptic scenario.

Set in the same world as True Monsters this is in one of the nicer places
Strange name for a game.
People hardly cared tho.
It could have been named asdfghjk, for all intents and purposes, and the world would have still bought it to the last copy available.
A "strange name" was as close to damaging the hype as much as a hippo will ever get close to learn how to fly. No surprise there tho, since, after all, Nodus B-Litm was the first, and only, Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game of that time.
70,000 copies were made.
70,000 copies were sold.
First day of January, 2025. As the clock hit 1pm,
70,000 people, from all over USA and Japan, started joining the opened servers of Nodus B-Litm. It was known as the greatest day in gaming histoy.
or, at least it was supposed to.
That title died before the day even ended.
On that day, Hideaki Eiji, creator of Nodus B-Litm, turned from one of the most admired people on earth to one of the most hated people on earth.
He trapped the players in game using O-Sumit, the very platform used to play Nodus B-Litm.
He set the rule.
"those who entered, cannot leave"
He set the condition.
"Beat the game, to achieve freedom"
He set the consequence.
"Die in Nodus B-Litm, die on Earth"
It was absurd. Unable to logout, beat a mmorpg, dying in game being real death. It was all too absurd. People cried, people fought, people died.
But, even after all of that, hope was not lost.
From within these people, rose heroes.
Heroes who kept fighting. No matter the odds, no matter how much they had to sacrifice, they kept advancing, they kept moving forward and forward and forward until they stood Infront of the final boss, fought the final boss and defeated the final boss.
6th of may, 2027. The World welcomed back the remaining 41,627 survivors of Nodus B-Litm with open arms. All of Earth rejoiced as the dream turned nightmare known as Nodus B-Litm finally came to an end.
It wasn't over tho.
Merely the settings of a stage.
Forging of heroes for what is to come.
This is the story of how these heroes
The world is now a jungle, and only the fittest can survive.
Jenny Summer is your typical high school girl, who can barely make any friends among her peers. Until her science class field trip changes everything. Suck into a time portal during an accident, Jenny appears in a strange distant future. A future of warring beast men tribes, deadly monsters, and magic from beyond the imagination. When the savage world is full of many threats, how will the average modern day girl survive?
Note: This my the first draft, which I have been working on the concept for years. It has been through a lot of changes until I finally decided on what the setting will be. Just to let you know, the profanity and gore are mild in this draft. It will have no F-bombs, but there are blood and a few bodies being dismantled in battle scenes. There might also be some grammar errors I missed. The draft will be a novella, but I might add more length in the future. I hope you will enjoy this story, which I will post between 6pm and 10 pm each day, except on the weekends.
You can check out my character designs here, drawn by Marc McKenzie.
The pattern is the same, but the outcome is always different. World to world, ocean to ocean, river to river, it's all the same yet somehow different. My goal is a simple one; eradicate anything that is dangerous to these worlds stretched about the cosmos. These worlds paint the universe like the stars paint a night sky, and i'm employed to be of service to these worlds. I grow tired of it, but I feel like this time there may be an ending to the long path I have taken. It may be my time to retire.
