A shard severed from a soul, full of Karma, but needing a body and life of its own.
The first true Rantha Hagbloods.
A Shrouded Earth invaded by magic, struggling to once again see the sky.
Three souls with the full knowledge of Power of Ten are on a world in need of something to break the stalemate and suppression of the Shroud of Undeath.

All humans possess a Pith, the essence of a mind where consciousness, reason, and emotion reside. Those who study its power can control their surroundings, move from body to body, and alter the very fabric of another’s thoughts.
On the continents of the Eight Oceans, the magicians wielding this energy formed secret societies, ruling nations from the shadows. Ten years ago, the public exposed them, plunging the world into chaos.
In the industrial empire of the Principality, Anabelle Gage has dreamt about Paragon Academy for as long as she can remember. An exclusive magic school, that can hone her abilities and cure her terminal illness.
And then they reject her.
She has one shot at saving her life: Enter the city’s cutthroat underworld, and make enough money to buy a new body. By any means necessary.
Ana forms a band of desperate exiles: A banished noble with dimension-warping power, a mind-reading mercenary, and a twenty-year-old bombmaker in an eighty-year-old body.
Together, they will uncover the secrets of this world. The true face of Paragon Academy. The drowned ruins of an ancient utopia. And the ocean, slowly rising, swallowing the planet beneath the waves.

I put all the warning tags to give myself creative freedom, but I'm not going to write a story filled with gore or swearing.
This is my first time writing, other than for school projects. I put the gender-bender tag because I wanted to try writing from a female's perspective, and needed an excuse for why my MC reads a little tomboyish. The gender-bender fades into the background over the first few chapters, please don't let the tag keep you away from trying out my story.
Second chances are rarely earned, and even rarer given. Follow a new life in a new world, where anything is possible. Our MC wakes up, stuck as a baby, needing to decide how she will live her new life. Let's see what future she can forge for herself, when hard work is rewarded with status points and skill levels.
Indigo woke up in a body she didn't recognize, and a world she didn't know, without memories or even a name to define herself.
Follow her life as she discovers that, not everything happens for a reason, not all bad guys are out to conquer the world, and being powerful doesn't automatically make life easy.
Follow her adventures as she gets drunk with orcs, raids ruins for lost treasure, and chops the heads off hordes of zombies.
Follow her journeys as she meets people, makes friends, and does her best not to kill everyone around her.

A long time player of a Sci-Fi VRMMO was waiting anxiously for the new big update that was going to add countless new systems to explore and even rumored new game elements.
My name is Nicolas
Nicolas "Nick" Siegel.
People say I’m weird.
I don’t know why, and the voice in my head won’t tell me.
Oh well, never mind…
You want a cookie? I baked them myself. With love~?
This is a story about an atypical player in a typical VR fantasy game, (re)written by an author—that's me—who still sucks at delivering synopsises.
Follow the adventures of Nicolas "Nick" Siegel, alias Elric Walker, alias the Wandering Knight, alias the Reckless Imbecile, alias...Victoria—Wait, what? Okay...err...Follow Nick Siegel, a young...man(?) afflicted with mild sociopathy and a worsening case of split personality, as he tries to make sense of the world around him and travels the virtual reality of Untold Tales, battling against undead butterflies, strange curses, and himself, and maybe find love.
I swear this is a romance!

Real reader's comment:
"World War Chicken has been fought. The area is destroyed, blood has been spilled, and the wrecks of the machines of war lay scattered. Mothers have cried, children have been traumatized, and only holy fire can burn away the foul creations spawned in its wake.
Oh, and a grown man made a complete fool of himself."
– by Dosahder, at chapter B0-C07.1
"Saying it starts slow is kind of inaccurate. It's more like a long rope attached to a speeding car. Eventually the slack in the line runs out and you're hooked."

In a world where magic is a science, Siobhan Naught is a genius.
But even geniuses need schooling.
Siobhan has just been banned from the country's only magical university.
As the unwitting accomplice to the theft of a priceless magical artifact, she has suddenly become a wanted criminal. There are fates worse than death, and if caught, she will face them. Unwilling to give up on her dream of becoming the world's most powerful sorcerer, she resolves to do whatever it takes to change her fate.
Even if it means magically disguising herself as a boy and indebting herself to a gang of criminals to pay for University tuition.
With the coppers after her, the pressure of trying to keep her spot in the devilishly competitive magic classes, and the gang calling in favors to repay her debts, Siobhan will need every drop of magic she can channel.
Some dude falls into another world and decides he’d rather live as the Heroine than go out and fight to death as the Hero. He might have changed his mind if he’d read the terms and conditions, though.
Read the bloody story tags. All of them. Only warning.
Freya presents Chester with a choice: die as he was destined or be her champion and evangelist. Chester chooses life then embarks on an adventure to establish himself in a new life.
Join Chester as he explores his new magical realm, its people, its magic, and the new body Freya has foisted on him.
This is a story about the family we find for ourselves and embrace to face the dangers of a hostile world and how we are better for them.
Fair warning, this work is a first draft that I've put through Grammarly so expect me to add and change the story over time. I'll mention any significant changes in the notes of the latest chapters or here. If you spot a flaw, point it out, I'll address it. Same with any questions you may have, they will be answered, whether you find it on the first or last chapter, or the day the chapter comes out, or a year later.
Generally, expect about two weeks between chapters. Sometimes I'm faster, sometimes slower. Work...
The first rewrite is currently at Chapter 25. (I intend to leave most of Book one (ends Chapter 34) alone as far as development goes. I'm improving the grammar and characterization etc as best I can but the story will stay the same. Book two is already undergoing a large developmental edit as it's a much weaker book overall and lacks a good impetus. I do intend to end in the same place. It just needs work. So, please bear with me, and if you don't want to brave past book one, for now, it's probably not a bad idea. Give me a month or so to get it sorted. Thanks for your patience.) Note made July 10th 2021
The story of a soul seeking new adventure in a new life. A secret wish to find some things he never really found in his old life. Will the universe have other ideas for him again? Warning: 18+ due to violence, language and sexual content Note: The story is complete. A/N: Since people seem to be skittish with the gender bender tag, I should probably mention that it does not play a particularily important part in the story. More in the beginning, less as the story goes on.
Typhoeus is a dragon. To the humans hunting him, he is nothing more than a monster. A mindless beast to be killed for levels and glory. To him, adventurers are not that much better.
Exiled from his home due to a trait on his status, and so very tired of killing adventurers on a near daily basis. Armed with a millennium of mystical knowledge and a new skill, Typhoeus decides to seek refuge hidden amongst the cowed remnants of humanity that populate this world.
This is his story.
Book 1 - A Sovereign's Scorn (153.5k words, avg 3.8k per chapter) - Release Schedule:
New chapters on Tuesday and Fridays.
Book 2 - Tentatively titled ‘A Warrior’s Ire’ - Release Schedule TBD

This story contains the following: British English, Profanity, Cliffhangers, LGBT+ Characters & Themes, Explicit Sexual Content, Sexual Threat, Gore, and Overarching Plot.
So no one is surprised, this story features a strong romance storyline between a shapeshifting genderqueer dragon and a human woman. If that's not your thing, feel free to stop reading here.
Good old Reality… A Game of Life, Death and Evolution. The oldest pastime in Existence, it entertained its audience for aeons. But what should the Creators do, now that the majority of Players got bored and wandered off to try out more recent games with more features and fewer restrictions?
Time for a reset, to start anew, and regain its old popularity.
What to do with all those mortal NPCs though? It would be quite a shame to just delete every single one of them, would it not?
This is the story of a stray mortal soul that got neither deleted nor recycled...
... but adopted?
I will add additional tags once they become relevant in later chapters.
- 'Reincarnation': this is a 'Continuous Reincarnation' story
- 'GameLit': light litRPG elements; no numbers, levels or experience points, though
- 'Genetically Engineered': in the sense of 'Guided Evolution'
- 'Gender Bender': Life#0 - undisclosed, human | Life#1 - female, non-human | Life#2 male, non-human
Updates every Friday night. (CET)

Follow a guy from earth who finds himself in the world of Naruto. Given powers similar to a game interface, he starts living as Hinata Hyuga, is turned into the reincarnation of the Rabbit Goddess and finds a way to "cultivate" in a world that was never meant to house immortals.
Matt is in societies eyes your average guy. He lives his days as everyone else does, slowly drifting from one place to another, never really standing out. In his opinion he feels himself trapped inside his male body, slowly suffocating from outward expectation for him, until he falls into depression and at the end seeks freedom by committing suicide. Who could have expected him to be given a chance for a new life in another world?
It is an exciting time for the people of the Eurial continent. The new [Mage] Class has allowed the powerful to begin uniting the fractured tribes and villages into kingdoms and civilization. A century on, and the continent is quickly consolidating into competing states.
Amelia, student and daughter of a humble [Hunter], just wants to learn [Fireball] and become a [Mage] in service to her [King]. She succeeds. All is well as the months fly by, eagerly awaiting her Classing. One day though, she receives a (unique) Trait: [Reincarnator]. And then, she dies.
And so begin her many lives.
Volume 1 (16 chapters) has been completed.
Other tags: Serial Reincarnator, Experimental Storytelling
The "Experimental Storytelling" is that each chapter is a separate life. That means things move very, very quickly and, regretfully, we often spend very little time with the people, places and things in each life. Some might call it an anthology.

When Raven Night was alive she had, since the age of three, been trained into a deadly killer and by the age of 25 her prowess had become legend; she was beyond a shadow of a doubt the most deadly assassin the world had ever seen. They called her the night songstress and every man and women in power feared to one day hear her "singing" - for it would be the last thing they would ever hear. It was then that the young miss Night was sent on a mission she refused to complete, and as a consequence she was hunted down and killed. As darkness claims her, she cannot help but feel resentment - would her countless slaughters, on other peoples command, be her only legacies!? However, to her surprise, the darkness faded once more and she found herself reborn in a world of magic and martial arts. Perhaps this time around she would create a better legend for herself?

WARNING: THIS IS NOT A SAFE SPACE.
Earth is in turmoil. Fiction of travel to other worlds through the use of magic take on airs of prophecy as youngsters all around the world disappear. Amidst this turmoil, one New Yorker is caught in a traffic accident and chosen by Loki to travel to another world. The god's offer was not a fair one.
But they came not as the Trickster's champion. Their purpose, a sinister one. One that will earn them the enmity of the world. A Heroic destiny is not in their future.
Their only ally is the impartial and pervasive System. Unable to be purged, they came to stay.
Thrown in a barbaric world where life is a dime a dozen, the intruder tries to survive and escape the wrath of the native deities. All the while burdened by divine curses imposed upon them by Loki.
The silver lining is that they can come back. Again and again. Only to restart the chase.
This fiction contains gore, sexual violence, torture, brutality, psychological and physical trauma, and no plot armor whatsoever. Portrayals of racism, misoginy, prejudice, and random violence will happen without warning. There won't be graphycal displays of smut or porn, however. That's important, somehow.
If any of the above can offend you or your sensibility, please don't read. The themes displayed are intended as criticism on why they are bad. The characters' reactions and opinions are their own and don't reflect the author's worldviews.
One more time: THIS IS NOT A SAFE SPACE.
Reader discretion is advised and required.
This work is not intended for people easily offended or minors. This is a non-commercial work and market viability is not a concern.
A young druid boy was betrayed by humanity and, after losing all that he held close to his heart, discarded his humanity to reincarnate as a tree. Using the potent magic he'd learned within his grove of druids, he was able to skip through the cycle of samsara, a feat only possible due to his outstanding talent in magic. Unforutately for him, however, the heavens do not like it when humans encroach on their territory.
After being smited, the young boy was once again reborn as a human and forced to walk the road he'd been assigned. Without knowing why, Feng Jiao was born with the determination to resist the heavens. This time, however, he was going to do it as a cultivator who strived for immortality and the atainment of godhood.
THE STORY IS CURRENTLY BEING EDITED. It was brought to my attention via very rudely worded comments and slightly more eloquent, but still very upsetting for me, reviews that much of the way I wrote the early parts of the story came across as creepy when I meant them to be funny. I do not appreciate personal attacks on me, but I can appreciate that the early draft needed much improvement.
If you catch up to the edited chapters, they are labeled, and still find things that rub you the wrong way, please politely point them out in the comments so that I may address them.
1. This story is more Slice of Life than most xianxia, if you are looking for non-stop action and face slapping, wrong story for you.
2. Once again, this is Slice of Life and Slow-burn. I've gotten multiple comments about how it moves too slowly for a xianxia, yes that is kind of the point.
3. One of the top reviews mention that I've wasted my story on wish fulfillment, this is true. I write this story to fulfill the wish I'd had for a story written the way I enjoy reading one. That is why I write, I am not an author I am just a reader who got bored of seeing the same thing rehashed.
4. In addition, MC is trap(ish) while young *maybe later as well. I won't say that it is for any purpose other than my own entertainment, as obviously I could have written it differently if I didn't think it'd be funny. If that's going to make you puke in your mouth because you can't appreciate the fact that it's supposed to be funny, then don't stop reading.
That being said, I appreciate all readers including the ones who just complain on every chapter, love yall.
5. Many of the tags I clicked may not come into effect for some time, or ever, but are something I am considering heavily when it comes to adding to the story.
6. I usually have one to two grammatical errors per upload, minimum. It's not because of my lack of command over the english language, but because my editing program, microsoft word (I know, I know) is equally bad at detecting my grammatical blunders as I am. I patch them as I see them (comments are cool, enjoy the +rep) but sometimes I am a little slow.
7. I wear many hats and do not always write frequently. I'm sure this will get regular updates during the new story high, but I do not know where it will go from there. This is my first time attempting to write xianxia and I am doing so to practice my writing craft and expand my skillset. Story probably gets updated once a week when its active, maybe more or less often over on patreon.
Many years passed since Dexter reincarnated into the body of Naruto. And these years brought changes. What didn't change was his love to Kurama and his penance to chicken, as well as his tendency to change into a woman and have fun by messing with people.
But who would have thought that the Naruto universe was the same as the Mass Effect one? Read how our chicken fanatic will influence the world of Mass Effect.
Plays during Mass Effect 2.
