Ryan "Quicksave" Romano is an eccentric adventurer with a strange power: he can create a save-point in time and redo his life whenever he dies. Arriving in New Rome, the glitzy capital of sin of a rebuilding Europe, he finds the city torn between mega-corporations, sponsored heroes, superpowered criminals, and true monsters. It's a time of chaos, where potions can grant the power to rule the world and dangers lurk everywhere.
Ryan only sees different routes; and from Hero to Villain, he has to try them all. Only then will he achieve his perfect ending... no matter how many loops it takes.

Cairn is a prince who is already tired of ruling. Faced with an imminent coronation and an overbearing father, he wants nothing more than to drown his responsibilities in cheap liquor and poor decisions. With the help of his sister, he hatches a plan to escape the clutches of the throne once and for all. It all goes terribly wrong, and Cairn finds his priorities shifting in the face of unimaginable tragedy. The change of heart comes too late, however, and Cairn dies. He reawakens to find himself transported ten years in the past. He immediately begins to plan for the future, only to discover his killer has somehow followed him. To succeed, Cairn must unite the kingdom and discover the motivation of his killer, using as many tries as it takes.
I exhausted pretty much every time loop story ever written and decided to write my own. You'll see a few similarities here between this story and some existing stories, at least initially. There's a lot of inspiration drawn from both MoL and Re:Zero, though in terms of pathos and darkness, this story leans more towards the latter. Be warned, it is something of a slow burn. The main character will grow and become powerful, but a theme of this story is that power comes slowly and often at great cost.
Cover commissioned from the amazing Viki-Vaki on Deviant Art
A horrific attack on a crowd ends with tens of thousands dead before Loren Parker abruptly wakes up in his bed, miraculously unharmed, two days before the explosion. Setalite City is on the brink of destruction, famous heroes and infamous villains are being systematically killed worldwide, and an unknown puppet master is pulling the strings. Lucky for him, Loren has all the time in the world to set things straight.

When I and every other humans on earth have been summoned to the cursed world of Yvelmore, to serve as a front-line soldier in an impossible war against an invasion of nightmarish creatures, I knew right away that something was going to go wrong.
I was right. The war? Hell, we lost it so much all the nations of the world have been destroyed and all the races have disappeared. Me? I was a veteran who survived until the end. Was I strong? Fuck yeah of course I was, except ... it was useless, I died like everybody else.
The bad news? When I thought it was finally over, I woke up in the past, the moment I was summoned to the beginning of the war. Come on, seriously? Do I really have to go through all that again? What? And everything restarts every time I die? No... are you fucking kidding me? Right?
Genre: Action, Adventure, Medieval Apocalypse, Times Loops, Progression, War & Fantasy, Grimdark, Magic, Horror, LitRPG (but RP).
Tone: Despair at the firsts chapters (which makes sense for a story that begins with the end of the world, doesn't it?), and lots of humor and stupid situations after to lighten the tone of the story. (Oh, and the MC is NOT a psychopath, a rapist, a hypocrite, or human garbage, so sorry for those who like that, because I don't like that).
Note: Expect this story to contain grammatical errors and occasional random conjugations. I am learning English, and I have made a lot of progress, but I still have some gaps. So if you're allergic to it, don't read this story, you would inevitably be disappointed.
Every time I die I respawn as a trash mob at the very bottom of the dungeon. It's a rather troublesome existence but I think I've managed to adapt honestly.
(Updates daily!) (Slow burn)
Hired on by the ridiculously influential Lauds Inc., Bec Namiko is soon to be one step closer to her dream of exploring the great cities of Earth—or at least what is left of them. Everything seems to be falling into place for her... except for one small issue. Her contract didn't specify where she'd be exploring.
Stuck on an alien planet called Dust armed with nothing but an ominous tablet, an AI with a death wish, and an odd power with no tutorial, Bec seeks answers for all of her questions both big and small such as: Why am I here? What does this thing called a Word do? And how the %@$# is this tablet telling me about my death?
(Updates on Monday and Friday until my backlog runs out and bonus chapters when I feel like it.)

The Great Collapse shattered the world, altering its terrain and destroying governments. At the same time, it brought magic to the world in a wave of chaos. Only the Gray Mage, who appeared just as suddenly as magic and disappeared just as fast, saved humanity from the destruction magic's arrival brought.
A century and a half later, the world is run by the Orders, the Guilds, and the Families, an uneasy peace between the three as the end of the Third Age of Magic draws near. Ryan Novar, heir of the most powerful Family, was born blind. During his Appraising, however, he learned that he possessed great magical potential, which would be wasted due to his blindness.
Determined to not waste his magical potential and to overcome his blindness through magic, Ryan set a goal for himself: become the second Gray Mage. While working towards this goal, Ryan discovers secrets about the Great Collapse, the Gray Mage, and the paradox that was his own birth.
Release Schedule: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays by 11:59 PM CST (+/- 1 day)

Thousands signed up to be part of The Tower. The game was simple: climbs all 100 levels of The Tower. But once all the players were inside, the game trapped them.
Ethan and his friends must work with other players if they ever want to go home. Death means starting back at level 1.
After recovering from their wipe on the 26th Floor, Ethan and his friends have left the town of Startesgarde to finish their own, unique class quests.
Little do they know, one of their own never made it to his destination. An unknown threat stalks them, even as a new recruit changes the dynamic of the Disorder guild.
The world ended on December thirty-first of the year two thousand and twenty, precisely at the stroke of midnight. The human race began to be systematically exterminated by the spawn of the System.
We were given a chance to defeat them, to take back our place at the top of the food chain.
The first to perish were those who bravely rebelled. The soldiers. The defenders. One by one, they fell. In their final moments, they begged for aid. Nobody replied.
The next to succumb were those who feebly cowered. The deniers. The leeches. Together, they fell. In their final moments, they cried out into the darkness. Countless voices replied in kind.
The last to decline were those who shamelessly ran. The deserters. The cowardly. Alone, they fell. In their final moments, they whimpered quietly. There was nobody left to answer.
The final human to die was a survivor. A runner. As he died, he begged for salvation. His prayers were answered. He was offered a chance to save himself, along with all of humanity, and he took it.
This is his story.
“I sat in the dark and thought: There’s no big apocalypse. Just an endless procession of little ones.”

I am absolutely new to writing and will take any and all constructive criticism. Please give feedback, it is greatly appreciated. I will update the tags as they change, and I hope that you enjoy this little story I'm writing!
Quick warning: Seamus is intentionally a flawed character, and this story is going to explore those flaws and perhaps even change a few of them. I do not agree with all of his actions, but it is what it is.
Before I reached Lvl. 100, they called me Death God Hei. But when I broke the limit the System punished me. It cursed me to become this monster. I woke up as a Lvl. 0 again. Dying only brings me back to a save point now. Sick, right? There’s just one catch. I don't go back until I die twice. First as a human, then as a zombie. And when my body reanimates, I still have to watch when that thing takes over. I call it the Gray. I can't do anything even when it's hunting down those I'm trying to save. Sometimes...I wonder. When I level...is it really just growing stronger...or is it also becoming self-aware? Can it...think?
It's like Re:zero crossed with SAO, Solo Leveling, and Tokyo Ghoul
Re:The Worst System is a dark, 1st person timeloop story where the main character is slowly driven insane by his ability to respawn at a save point. However, each time he levels, there's a possibility that the next time he dies, the zombie inside him will become too powerful for anyone to stop. So he has to level up a harem...ahem, others, to fight for him against the System. Oftentimes, Hei will get trapped in repeating death loops which are truly terrifying.
You've been warned...please don't read if you're not willing to see the darkness all the way through. The light on the other side may be a long ways away...I'll be trying to post on Thurs/Sundays, but honestly, depending on how I'm feeling, chapters could come out at some wonky times.
If you want to support the story, read ahead, or bribe me to write more, I'd appreciate you checking out my Patreon, but this story will be updated frequently for free anyways.

Rainbow Destructor is a dizzying flash of color splashed onto the page as the seven-woman crew of the XSS Savior must save the galaxy from an impending threat that defies not only physics, but everything you’ve ever expected in a space adventure story.
This story was originally written with one chapter every single day throughout 2017, so it is a bit free-form and experimental compared to the typical serial sci-fi piece. Take this journey only if you’re ready for some strange occurrences, alright?
Andrew Garage thought he was the Chosen One.
Stuck in a time loop that reset whenever a meteor crashed to Earth, he was determined to save mankind and get himself out of the loop. On his seventh try, he finally eliminated the catastrophic meteorite with an Antimatter Gun.
However, a self-proclaimed Goddess suddenly appeared and sent Andrew back into the loop again because he saved the world 'the wrong way'. As Andrew bitterly scavenged for solutions, he found out that the reason the meteor kept crashing into Earth because. . . he kept ignoring his exes' texts.
Reiss is a [Florist]. Or at least he was before. Before the moment he became a [Regressor]. Reiss's first skill, [Orgin Point], allowed him to travel back in time to the original location he gained the class.
In the world of Aurelia, the world of Classes, Levels, and Skills. The highest-leveled rule. The Emperor of Dreams keeps the world in check through prophetic visions. For decades the world has been safe from global war and disaster. No more.
The Emperor has been having spine-chilling nightmares. Levels alone can't stop what is coming. He sees the shadows of innumerable invaders and the complete annihilation of Aurelia. A cataclysm that is impossible for a single world to birth.
Reiss expended all 364 uses of [Origin Point]. Again, he failed to save Aurelia. To protect his beloved Nell. He returns for the final time as his final death lights up Aurelia, casting a shadow over his conquered world.
