Terra Aetheria is a place where light is dominant. Angels have descended from the heavens and have started ruling over mankind. Since they have come down, humanity has flourished. Diseases are easily cured and death can be prevented. On first glance, this seems like the perfect utopia. But is it really? Angels demand the lives of demons in order to grant people with divine energy. Are demons actually as they depict them – wicked, bloodthirsty beings?
The story follows a determined and hardworking young human and his family, a mysterious but noble demon, an adventurous angel with a pure heart and a witty and playful woodland nymph.
Is it justified for humanity and angelic beings to flourish at the cost of demon blood? Fate has brought this seemingly bizarre group together, so that they can find out the true intentions behind the unlimited generosity of the angel aristocracy.

There are three rules in this world.
Rule 1: Everyone is the physical embodiment of their ability.
Rule 2: You cannot use your ability if people are witnessing it.
The exceptions to rule 2 is a) you get into a fight you can use your ability, or b) the world permits you to use your ability.
Rule 3: You cannot die.
This is story of those whose abilities are strongly linked to their emotional well-being, and must fight if they hope to escape their spiral into madness.
Hello, this is my first time ever doing something like this. Im not going to lie, I am still a little new to this writing thing. I hope to write more in the future. It would make me do something productive in my spare time other than doing nothing. In this story, what I tried to do was something meta. It's about a editor/writer who is close to losing is job. He finds a book, but the book isn't like any normal book. The book is alive, it's aware that it's a book and it has lived on for generations. Seeing this opportunity, the main character decides to take his career into his own hands and write a story of his own to publish. However, the pressure of all that he faces makes him Spiral out of control. However, what you read was never real. In fact it's just the story that the main character wrote, he never went through any of it.

"He wondered then how he'd be able to survive. Him versus them? Alone? He couldn't stand a chance. His only option was to run."
Chase ran away from the things he knew, the things he is only coming to know, and the things he didn't even know that existed.
Well, here's my half-assed story. Kind of. It's my first actual story so healthy criticism is more than welcome. I'd also appreciate someone who'd be willing to help me make a cover because I'm shit at everything that doesn't relate to reading, writing (oh wait), music, and video games.
Again, healthy criticism is very much appreciated and welcome. I'd prefer if any of you would uh, actually read it for some reason, comment more? I need to know if it's good or bad or puke-inducing. Thanks.
"Young girls and mass-murderers are tender-hearted creatures."
Tsukiakari was unlucky.
Daughter of the Shinto gods Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi, she was supposed to live a lavish life of fortune and favor. She was supposed to be a princess, planning for the day when she would rule Heaven and its subjects, like her father and mother before her. She would soon learn that fate laughs as these pallid, charmless machinations called "plans".
Her father was banished from Heaven for the murder of a fellow god, while her mother's waning mental health made it impossible to continue living with her. And so, Tsukiakari fled from Heaven, descending upon the Honshu island of Japan during the kickoff of the ?nin War. Tsukiakari finds herself exposed to both the horrors and the beauties of the mortal world, and the humans therein. She becomes accustomed to Japan's landscape, its aromatic sakura trees and waving fields of moonlit susuki, but is left terrified by the madness and brutality of war. She has walked right into an era of social upheaval, of lordless armies engraving their mark in history with their bloodstained blades. No one was there to guide her.
Except for him.
Bishamonten, the legendary god of war, discovers the young Tsukiakari's affinity for the blade. He takes the stray goddess in, offering her a home and a place in his new society; the Senkumo clan. Just imagine, a militaristic society unbound by power-hungry daimyo or an ever-increasingly useless Shogun, a parallel state hiding beneath the underbelly of feudal, war-stricken Japan. The Senkumo are not bound by a common bond of blood, but by a common bond of ideals. They vow to not only become a nation unto themselves, but to also bring the fear of the gods back to the outside world. With Tsukiakari in their ranks, the Senkumo embrace their second lord, and the clan begins their long, bloody, and tragic journey to achieve their vision.
Senkumo War Stories is a chronicle of the battles, the brutality, and the betrayal Tsukiakari and her experienced during the Warring States period of Japan. It is a chronicle that has already played out many centuries ago. Nothing can be changed, taken back, or altered. The triumphs and tragedies within shall remain ever permanent.
This chronicle's first tale is the Book of Blossoming. It's the story of a stray goddess finding her purpose on the battlefield. It is also a tale of the clan she came to love and nurture, of the people that were loyal to her to the very end. Tsukiakari's long legend begins with a blossoming, but it ends in a tragic bloodbath. Many of the people who took part in her chapter of history are no longer with us. And yet, their memory can live on here, in the first Senkumo War Story.

Connor is a trainer at Grimpark Space Station, teaching human experiments how to fight. His private life is a mess; although he seeks love, he's unable to find any. His solution may lie within arm’s reach, but for that he needs a change of heart first.

Those few minutes seemed like an eternity. Everyone was so desperate to save Noriko, to save her child and atone for the grave mistake committed in the Senkumo name. But as the minutes continued to pass, there was less and less anyone could do for her. Tsukiakari soon found herself to be the only one still trying, while the others all refused to even look at Noriko’s colorless face.
Tsukiakari took a good look at Noriko, her lifeless face and her battered, violated body.
Book of Betrayal continues the harrowing tale of the Senkumo clan and the horrors Tsukiakari endured during the Warring States era of Japan. It begins with the Rape of Noriko and the subsequent massacre of her village, heinous crimes committed by Tsukiakari's own men. Forced to conceal the atrocity from her Ashikaga allies, Tsukiakari has the perpetrators executed and the bodies dumped in the Katsura river. Her efforts to preserve peace between her clan and the Ashikaga proved forlorn. As it turns out, dead men do tell tales.
Tsukiakari finds herself embattled by new and old enemies, and hated by men and phantoms alike. War begins to rot the senses of everyone around her, turning good men and women into vengeful husks of their former selves. Her fight to establish her clan as a sovereign state becomes bloodier and more heartbreaking than she could've ever imagined, as the madness of war begins to affect her dearest friends.
In Book of Betrayal, the leadership of the Senkumo clan reveal just how far they're willing to go to forge their new nation, even it means turning against their fellow Senkumo. Meanwhile, Bishamon all but disappears from the clan. His communications with Tsukiakari grow sparse, and his true intentions behind establishing the clan are questioned.
With their master gone, Tsukiakari and her clan find themselves all alone in one of the most violent eras of Japan's history, with only their goal and their most determined enemies in sight. Thus begins a tale of secrets, phantoms, and ultimately, betrayal. The question is, who among the Senkumo will survive to see this era of strife and war come to an end?
