Threedak is a simple Dhajtel. Every night she scavenges and hunts for her tribe in the great desert, relying upon her skill and ancestral memories to avoid the night's many dangers. Her life remains largely the same until one night, one of the gleaming angels that hangs in the night sky falls into her desert. Deciding to investigate, she happens upon a scene far beyond her limited understanding.
The Dhajtel aren't alone. The galaxy is far vaster and more hostile than Threedak's people can even begin to comprehend.
Entrusted with the knowledge and memories of a dead race, it will be up to her to forge Dhajtel society into something that can survive the storm that is to come.

An average man is given the chance to reincarnate into the Star War Universe with some benefits to help him survive in the brutal galaxy filled with death and adventure. However, he isn't getting the disney animated version where all the bad stuff is shunted to the side, and the lines of good and evil are black and white. The lines in this universe are so grey and blurred, sometimes you can't even tell what is good and evil. So why bother? Make your own lines.
(Cover is not mine, saw it at https://swfanon.fandom.com/wiki/Gillian_Skirata and I thought it looked pretty cool and relevant to the story, so I am using it for the cover, if you are the owner and you want it gone, PM me)
(Currently I am unable to write due to insane loads of schoolwork + my job, additionally I have fallen out of the SW vibe/mood which inspired me to write this story so while I do have loads of draft's and plans for this story it's unlikely for me to release a chapter for the time being, after that it looks much more promising)
Six centuries into the future and light-years into outer space, the only thing that has not changed is the struggles of the human condition. The desires for power, love and survival persist in Tales of the Terrace Republic, a military space thriller that forges one flawed everyman into a hero.
Phillip Murphy is a veteran from a war that ended a decade ago. He hasn’t had a promotion in a long time, and the shrinking armed forces have not been friendly. The Terrace Navy puts him at the helm of a meager torpedo boat – a career-ending assignment.
But a routine space patrol finds his ship nearly ambushed by fighters, and when he tails them back to their base, Phillip discovers an anomaly – the investigation of which will change the course of his life forever.

Humanity enters the galaxy and makes First Contact, only to begin to realize that not everything is at it seems. It appears that the galactic alien community has forgotten to invent some rather important economic concepts that human civilization has taken for granted.
This is a look at a hypothetical galactic scale barter economy, how that would work, or how as one of our main characters Sarah realizes... it doesn't.
And as the galaxy falls apart at the seams, it's up to the best and brightest in humanity to put things back together.
Story contains a lot about markets, logistics, development, and the best and worst of human history. Not so much Space Marines nuking aliens.
If you enjoyed the trade negotiations and Senate politics in the Star Wars prequels, and wished that there was an entire standalone story consisting solely of those parts, this might be for you!

Howdy, space cowboy!
In a near future and the merciless cosmos survives Lee, the space Maine Coon, despite his ready tongue and his sassy feline comments giving him nothing but troubles. Fortunately, he goes along with "his" sapiens and partner : Ali, a violent and cheeky young woman who only swears by her Desert Eagle .50 and her oversized soda cups. Aboard their mythical ship, the Kitty, this duo of bounty hunters travels trough the faithless and lawless void, staging a succession of disasters and Betamax binge watching.
"The future that never was" is an action-driven science-fiction book series for adults borrowing from different sub-genres such as space opera, space western, cassette futurism and cyberpunk.
Its first story, "KITTY KITTY", has a unique and deeply retro universe. Because, in this uchronia, the Soviets planted the Red Flag on the Moon in 1955. Since then, mankind has relentlessly pushed its colonies to the ends of the solar system. It devotes all its scientific and industrial resources to it. This means that, during the events of "KITTY KITTY", its cultural codes seem frozen in some alternative 1980s. Floppy disks are kings and David Hasselhoff is the ultimate galactic superstar; Robots do all the work and the packs of cigarettes are cheaper than ever! Yet, life is hard. As humanity is expanding trough the Kuiper Belt and the New Worlds, the overly consumerist society is slowly collapsing because of the never-ending corpo-wars and the blatant technocratic corruption.
So… what are you waiting for? Dive into this strange future of punks cyborgs and flying shiny Chryslers! Bloody, irreverent but always hilarious, "The future that never was's KITTY KITTY" will allow you no respite. Take a deep breath, and BACK TO BUSINESS!
"KITTY KITTY" contains 24 episodes. I will upload them all, one by one, every Wednesday from January to June 2021.

Or, at least, so they thought. Peeling back the veil of time, The Empire of Sol has uncovered vestiges of a secret genetic program on the far flung planet of Hod. The advent of the Empire’s ancient enemy could upset the careful balance of power throughout in the Sol System.
When Hod is invaded by the Empire, Andros Aeton is pressed into their service and his people are held hostage. Unbeknownst to him, factions within the Empire vie to use him to their own ends. He must claim his heritage if he has any hope of escaping the clutches of the forces that seek to use him."
This is a work in progress. Major editing will be done after the book is complete, so there will be egregious typos and parts that make no sense whatsoever. Please feel free to point any and all of these things out. Chapters WILL get edited, and that editing might break earlier chapters. I will attempt to keep readers apprised of all changes. As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated.

One thousand years ago we destroyed the human race. Our ancient world is home to clandestine groups of survivors and fearsome beasts. The wealthy have abandoned us to settle in a utopia on Mars where they send brutal forces to purge the old humans, hoping to one day take both planets for themselves.
At the Amber Throne sits King Eden, Earth's most powerful warlord and Mars' greatest threat. When her son is kidnapped by the Martians in an attempt to take her life, she abandons her kingdom to unite her enemies and seek revenge.
The bright red light of the flames swallowed her vision but soon that red light transformed into a blue hue and she was dragged into that light.
It was too bright and she was forced to close her eyes, she was blinded — even though she was already dead.
After being pulled into the light she began to feel annoyed as her skin was irritated by some kind of rough sand.
By the time she opened her eyes. She could see the full view of the sky. It was blue and there were clouds scattered about.
‘Ugh, is this Hell?’
She stated as she rubbed her head with her fluffy and furry ‘hand’.
She looked at her ‘hands’ and her mouth opened wide. Her hands had become soft and fluffy paws of a white-furred beast with purple spots.
‘What the hell?’
She touched her face with her paws and confirmed that it too did not belong to a human. Below, she felt something was moving, she can tell as if it was another limb connected to her.
‘Don’t tell me!’
Turning her head around, she found a seven-inch tail sticking out behind.
‘Phew!’ She felt relieved that it wasn’t what she thought it was.
“These soft and paws, this cuddly fluffy hair, this cute tail — ah shit, did I become a beast after my death or have I been dreaming of being human as a beast all this time? If it is the latter that is one long and realistic dream.”
[It’s the former, stupid *]

As always thank you for reading, also the image in the cover is not mine, I found it on Pinterest and thought it was cool and suitable. All credits got to the illustrator.
Also, this is a new type of story that I have not read about yet. Basically I am writing an evolution novel without prior knowledge so I don't really know what is considered cliche in this genre.
Jay Thomas was your typical high school boy obsessed with sports, video games, and girls. He has his whole life planned out ahead of him after graduating from high school, or at least he did until having a fateful encounter with God.
During the summer between his junior and senior year Jay was confronted by a strange voice in his head that asked him to become the first ever “Cosmic Entity.” At first Jay thought he was going crazy, but soon he learned just how real the voice in his head was.
Overnight Jay’s world was flipped inside out after being turned into an immortal and becoming the Infinity Plane’s first Cosmic Entity. Now he’s tasked with creating entire universes and managing over existence itself!
The Infinity Plane!
A world where imagination and creativity are the only limits! Kind of...
Join Jay as he enters an entirely new world of...well, world creation! What are World Games? Will Jay become the most powerful Cosmic Entity of all? And is it okay to make it rain dogs on Sundays? Honestly? Only time will tell.
Important things to know for this series:
This story is told through our main character's perspective, however, the setting and lens of the story changes frequently to see what's going on throughout his universes.
You will experience various adventures, cultures, civilizations, wars, and story-lines throughout the entire book.
I'm always willing to take new ideas or answer questions about the book, so feel free to leave a comment and let me hear your thoughts!
It's important to note that this book is inspired by karami92’s World Keeper.
Three teenage girls, living on the colony ship Horus One as it makes its thirty-year journey across space, have found themselves in an awkward romantic triangle. After some dramatic discussions and love confessions, they have decided to try out an unconventional relationship-- they're going to date each other. This is their story, one week in.
This is a one-shot story prototype. If it's popular, I will probably end up making a full novel out of it.

Andy "Butcher" Evans has killed two people. His career is over and he's staring down a lengthy prison sentence.
But an enigmatic corporation needs someone just like Butcher to track down a missing employee and, in order to find him, Butcher undergoes an experimental procedure injecting him with nanotechnology that will heal, adapt and improve his body in ways he cannot yet understand. Butcher's mission takes him into a dangerous conspiracy and an alien sub-culture. And now his brain is telling him that he has "stats" and "skills". He doesn't know what it all means, but Butcher knows how to find out.
Adam was a weird man; he never had many friends, and he had even fewer girlfriends since he wasn’t the type to show or tell what he was thinking or feeling. While most people wanted to spend their youth doing memorable things, he liked to spend his time in his apartment relaxing, reading and playing games. However, his life changed when an AI coming from the future teleported him to another dimension.
No, Adam wasn’t selected to become a hero and save the world. The universe that the AI belonged had already been destroyed; their job was to prevent if the same thing happens in another universe. As for the rewards for working with the AI, they could obtain anything they wish, as long as they have enough bio points even if they were superpowers, superweapons or even other beings completely obedient to them.
Adam wasn’t interested in powers or weapons; instead, he used the AI's incredible ability to create the characters he admired across multiple universes. Adam decided to use that as an opportunity to open up and perhaps even become intimate with those people. Obviously, his sole intention was to summon women.
