(LitRPG/GameLit) (Previously named The Bastard Prince)
Born magically talentless, Prince Corvus is an embarrassment the royal family and is removed from succession. However, he still has a chance to win back his throne. The next man or woman to hatch a dragon automatically becomes the ruler. Each member of the royal family is gifted with a dragon egg, but it is the work of a lifetime to hatch it.
The first time Corvus touches his dragon egg, he receives an odd notification: He has found a soulbound item and is tasked with an epic quest to hatch it... but only if he can walk the winding path of the dragon mage.
Armed with notifications, skill increases, and levels only he can see, Corvus is determined to hatch his dragon.
Julian Crane seldom cared for anything but his magic and research.
When the gods decided to damn him out of the blue, naming him Dark Lord and painting him as a Villain in the eyes of mankind, he moved on with his life, caring nothing about their scrutiny.
But their ways are ineffable, and when they start sending Heroes — mere children — to throw their lives against him, he vows to make them pay — one undead Hero at a time.

Micheal is a young guy in his late teens who just graduated from high school and now he honestly does not know what to do with himself. Sitting in his chair just relaxing and browsing the shit-show that was the internet, doing random shit, he suddenly becomes oddly weary. The next moment he's fuck-knows-where and everything seems rather.... odd?
He was rather confident in himself, that he usually didn't have a 360-degree field of vision, and that everything wasn't always so... gigantic. Something was really off... As if to confirm his thoughts, the very next second a series of prompts invaded his sight followed by a rather soothing voice.
[Soul restoration - Completed!]
[Welcome to Eve]
[Status...... Species: Glade Mosquito.....]
Slowly taking in everything laid out before him, Micheal responded with the most intelligent and sagely response possible.
As such Micheal's unending search for power, adventure, and family begins.
This story features a protagonist with unconventional views and morals. In a world where only strength rules, concepts of good and evil become blurred as they fade to inutility. If you are looking for a goody-two-shoes, upholder of justice, and who goes around unconditionally saving any and all people in distress, this story is most likely not your cup of tea.
It can also get pretty dark and sensual at times, you have been warned.
Release schedule, Monday-Wednesday-Friday
A new mother that recently hit rock bottom not long before giving birth to a child she never planned to have is whisked to a new world of magic and monsters. Her prodigious intelligence earns her a free magical skill, and though she makes great use of it, little does she know that in this new land, magic is the highest taboo imaginable, and for a good reason. She learns quickly that she will have to be the bigger monster to protect the only thing in her life worth protecting, her child, and with her particular set of skills, there's an unending tide of enemies waiting to have a piece of her.
What to expect:
An unforgiving madness-inducing magic system, secret identity shenanigans, biological magic and therefore body-horror, a barebones and unintrusive status screen system, a genius-intellect self-serving main character.
Contains mentions and brief descriptions of rape.
Mondays, Wednesdays and Firdays. 4PM EST-ish
Twenty years of fighting, an endless struggle for a better tomorrow. Years of bloodshed to buy humanity just one more day. Decades spent forging himself into a juggernaut of steel and bone. One night that all changed.
Suddenly finding himself back at the start, Jack must answer the question, what would you do with a second chance? Would you tread the same path to power, no matter the cost? Would you walk a new path, one full of the unknown? Most important of all, what do you do when the world is set on a timer? Life as you know it will end, no matter what you do, do you let Fate have its way, or do you position yourself to pick up the shattered pieces of civilization?
Jack will grasp his chance at redemption, and protect humanity from that which slumbers, undisturbed for ages past. To do so he will have to be strong, and he will need help. Will he trust any with his dark past or will the burdens of a modern Prometheus prove too much to shoulder.
As the world changes humanity finds it no longer stands atop the food chain, how will it deal with myth and legend made real? A world of pure potential awaits those with the will to see it. While fates worse than death await those unlucky few that delve too deep into the secrets of the unknown. Six paths to infinite variety. Four days till everlasting fame. Welcome to the last game ever played.
Shold'ler has made a reality before. It was pretty messy, the physics didn't work properly, and his designs were just terrible.
This place has flawless physics, a whole set of natural laws, and the most detailed everything he's ever seen. The air moves sometimes (but not all the time), the grass has layers underneath it, and the trees sometimes have things living in them.
All things considered... it's depressingly good.
What's he supposed to do here?
Life isn't a game. Well, maybe it is now.
Every day is the same for Joseph. Study; go to class; repeat. He can't help wondering what it's all for? Who is it all for? Life is dull and there's no prospect of that changing. Is some excitement too much to ask for?
"Get to safety if you wish to survive!"
Joseph's prayers are answered, but not in a way he could ever have expected. Goblins, ghouls, kobolds and a myriad of monsters and mythical creatures have spawned all over the college campus and beyond. The carnage is shocking.
If he's going to survive the RPG apocalypse, Joseph is going to have to figure out the new rules fast. And is it wrong to feel so alive, when so many other people have died?
Apparently, even heaven had the odd clerical error. Which was not something Nathaniel Miller would have expected, and yet, that seemed to be exactly what had happened to him. The collector of souls seemed to have been given the wrong address, and instead of taking one Nathaniel Miller of the earth apparently right next door, he took Nate. As recompense for this small bit of error Nate was placed in the body of the Nathaniel Miller that had supposed to have been taken in the first place, and seeing as he now had an opportunity to try to live his life a different way he planned on taking advantage of this chance.
No one, however, had specified how different this world would be from his, sure they had said the tech would be a little older, and there were other small anomalies. But no one had seen fit to let him know that older meant medieval, and those small anomalies mentioned? They probably referred to all the fantasy elements and magic that seemed to be part of this world.
Still, he was determined to do better this time around, after all, chances like this were next to unheard of...
Mana Artists rule the world, and the path to power is a well-kept secret, restricted to state-approved programs and universities.
Akari Zeller will never be a Mana Artist. Not if society has its way. She's a Bronze with no money, no family, and no connections. But technology is advancing too. And to a skilled hacker like Akari, no secret is safe forever. The dark web holds the keys to true power, advancement, and her only chance of survival.
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!

He remembered that it hurt.
Gaining power hurt.
No one ever warns you about the pain that comes before or after. The blinding torture that racked his body for centuries was nothing compared to losing — well ... everyone.
He supposed he should have known things wouldn’t work out in the end — things rarely do for Gods.
Callisto was among the chosen. One hundred souls plucked from ten different game by a capricious goddess of chaos. Each imbued with power, and brought to the realm of Khiam, there to tangle and twist the weave of fate. One hundred newborn demigods driven by their passions and unleashed upon the world.
Reborn in demonic flesh, Calisto finds no comfort behind the city walls. Her kinship is with the monsters of the wilderness and she learns to bond with them as she cultivates. If she would protect her growing family, she must become strong. If she would retain her humanity, she must remain kind. And if she wishes to be free, Callisto must best other players, magistrates, and even the gods of this realm.

--- MC does not like killing things, avoids doing so, and feels bad when people die.
In a world where powers come from light and shadow, Loke and his little sister Nova are abandoned in the Wastelands by their parents.
They have to live their daily lives hunting monsters to sustain themselves.
However, one fateful day, hunting down a man with bad intentions, Loke unlocks a rare Skill, a Skill that lets him see and hear the whispers of the world (the System).
From that moment on, the siblings' life changes forever.
A Warning: There is an Anti-hero lead for a reason. So, there's going to be blood, there might be carnage, but there will also be wholesomeness, romance, and affection. But most importantly, there will be Action.
About the LitRPG: This novel is a slow-burn, with a lot of character development, yet the LitRPG element starts in chapter three and becomes more prominent as the protagonist learns to use his Skill.

First attempt at a story.
Alyx is reincarnated in another world, where he gains a class that allows him to shapeshift.
Join him on his adventures, where he will come into conflict with everything from elves to gods.
This story will have multiple forms, body modification, and a potty-mouthed main character.
I will be going for 3-4 chapters a week, you know how it is, got to deal with that nine to five first and foremost.
In the village of Ibusa (ee. gboo. zor), strange things happen when it rains, it is simply an aspect of life that its denizens have adapted to since long ago. However, finding a gravely wounded boy who seems to have fallen from the sky, after a heavy rain one afternoon, might just be a little too strange.
The main focus of this story is slice of life. And I guess maybe comedy.
Is there an overarching plotline? Yes. Definitely.
Do I, the author, know what it is? Probably.
Will there be action? Eventually.
See, the thing is, if you're the kind of person who only enjoys stories where the MC is the badassest mofo in town, or where he/she always has to beat some progressively stronger bad guy every arc, then this likely isn't for you.
On the other hand, if you're the kind of person who can simply kick back and enjoy a story simply to see where it leads, then please, hop right in, because as the title says, this isekai adventure is all wrong, therefore whatever preconceptions you have about isekai fantasy would be best left at the door as you come in.
Thank you, and I hope those of you who decide to give this a try like it.
Chapter updates every Sunday - Thursday at 7:15pm West Africa Time.

Victoria Bright is a Wife.
No, she isn't married.
"Wife" is the Class the system gave her.
She has to fight Demons to get stronger? Then she will become the strongest Wife of all!
She can only learn Fashion and Household Skills? No one said you can't fight in High-heels!
The gods made her best friend a Hero? First, she has to beat some sense into him for betraying his own beliefs.
Accompany her as she survives in a dangerous world, a world that has secrets even the gods don't know about.
The second half of "The Wave 07: The System" and the first half of "The Wave 08: Heroes and Knights" contain a lot of exposition that most other stories would consider "secrets of the world" that those stories would uncover over the course of a long time.
There are two reasons this is revealed so early and directly.
One: Not revealing that information quickly and not asking questions about it would be completely OoC for the characters involved in that scene.
Two: It's information you, the reader, need to know before the main story can really get started. Namely, the "secrets not even the gods know about".
A young engineer with photographic memory dies after choking on a pretzel. He is reincarnated in a fantasy world as a dungeon core. Having near infinite knowledge from Earth, and infinitesimal common sense, he begins to shape his dungeon into the ultimate factory of resources. Collect all the things! Automate all the systems! Even adventurers can be farmed! And if a few world governments collapse in the process, well, it’s all for the sake of science!
This story is like if Factorio was about dungeons, played by someone with ADHD.
Warning, lots of numbers and spreadsheets. Arithmophobes beware!
She's sentient, formless, and floating through the black void. It's a serene experience. No worries. No hunger. No abuse. But then an excitable message prompt called the System arrives. It wants her to do things and it won't leave her alone.
Soon enough, our girl finds herself awaken with a tall, strong, and curvy form. It's a body she'll love to enjoy while relaxing. Unfortunately, there's this thing called hunger. And quests. And monsters. And people who want to control her... or slay her.
This is the LitRPG tale of a troubled giantess acquiring power so she can defend her nap time and eat the things that want to hurt her. She might even make friends along the way while she stumbles into tiresome (but sometimes delicious) misadventures of mayhem.
Chapters 1-16 are the Tutorial Arc. They're a little silly, but it sets up some good drama for the future.
We're currently in the Exploration Arc. This Arc expands upon the world and sees Rhonda grow in unique, unexpected ways.
"Alright, so I have this idea, a completely original one by the way, never done before." I say.
"Alright, lets hear it." You reply happily.
"What if you got trapped in the body of a tentacle monster that looks like a virus in a world that is like a videogame, with skills and... whoops slip of the tendril there, what I meant to say is Mutations and Levels as you evolve your way up from being that lowly creature into a slightly better lowly creature, all the while, an evil devil person watches over you for entertainment purposes." I say making weird hand gestures across the table. "Oh and that main character used to be a human male and uses its past experience as one to survive in this new world as a little mass of flesh." I pull out a little ball with suction cup tendrils and show you. "So, what do you think?"
" I dont know seems, a little sameish, I think Im gonna go." You say as you start to get up from your worn but still plush velvet chair.
"Wait" I sigh, " I didnt want to do this but you leave me no choice, I promise you an extremely diverse harem..." The door closes as you leave.
"They'll come back." I say hopeful.
Onaga Katsuro, a seventeen-year-old soldier in the JSDF finds himself fighting in the second Russo-Japanese war in the year 2045.

This a story of the greatest triumphs and deepest despairs, of gentle love and corrosive cruelty. Katsuro knows not what the god wants or what he is meant to do in the new world.
But he knows this, the prize offered by that god is impossible to resist. He will obtain that prize no matter how many bodies he needs to put into the ground.
He has nothing left to lose.

TO NOTE FROM AUTHOR- READ THE TAGS BELOW AND ABOVE!!! If you don't like any of the tags please don't read it.
This is my first time writing fanfic. Remember the first 30 chapters are intricately linked. Somethings won't make sense unless you read the first 30 chapters and all the authors note. If you can't be bothered to do that and drops it before that then goodbye. I don't need you announcing that with a review or chapter comments. If you want to leave then leave, don't announce it like a child seeking attention. I don't give a damn if you leave.
This novel is not for everyone. It is aimed at a select few audiences who likes the romance genre and small amounts of actions. So don't read it if you are expecting anything else.
I don't need you to tell me which direction to take my MC and my novel for the plot and how to utilise my MC's powers. This is my novel so I decide what to do with my MC. You either suck it up or drop it!
Also, I am not looking for readers who want to change my novel or my MC. You either read it and ignore the minute plot holes, things that make you uncomfortable and deal with the fact that there are some things here that you can't make sense of cuz this is a fictional world or drop it.
I won't bother to respond to every single haters, logic spotters. But I do welcome grammar corrections.
If you don't like who the MC is, again just drop the book. Don't come saying I don't like MC change him because I don't appreciate you enforcing your ideas into my novel.
There will be heavy 18 plus sex scenes and violence so don't read this if you don't like those kinds of things.
This story will have one of its main focus as Romance tag and his relationship with his love interest. Also, the plot won't be heavily changed from MCU, even though MC tries to change parts of it, so be cautioned if you like heavily changed plotline.
This is a free novel. Any attempt to translate it without my permission and taking money for it from people will lead to me taking down this novel.

High school life isn't easy. It especially isn't easy when you're starting your freshman year at a brand-new school in a brand-new state. As such, Daniel Meadows was doing his best to get his bearings, and just fit in. That is, until he laid eyes on Sophia Hart. In that moment, he made a decision that would change his life forever. To win her over, he made the momentous decision to join the Tennis team, and take up a sport he'd never played before, to impress a girl he'd just met...As if this brilliant life choice wasn't questionable enough, he forgot to look both ways before crossing the street...
A run in with an errant truck was inevitable, and now his life just got a little more complicated...how is Dan going to use his newfound powers, and can he reach his lofty (for a freshman I suppose...) goals of winning over Sophia's...heart?

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.

While waiting on an Akihabara train platform one day, ordinary high schooler Yoshi Shinonome was suddenly plucked from his normal life in Japan and whisked away by a beautiful goddess to Ephemera, a world of magic and adventure, to serve as her Hero and drive back the evil Dark Lord.
This is not his story.
Standing nearby at the moment Yoshi was isekai'd was a man named Seiji - a rude, cranky, misanthropic musician who was not at all pleased to find himself also snatched up and transported to Ephemera by the goddess's wicked sister, Virya. According to this self-proclaimed Goddess of Evil, the whole fantasy adventure thing was a game she and her sister played to stave off the boredom of immortality, and since the good goddess, Sanora, had picked her Hero...well, Virya needed a Dark Lord.
A grown man with his own career and ambitions, Seiji has no interest in playing. Unfortunately for him, the call to adventure was not a request. Now, he must conquer Ephemera and defeat the Hero...or Virya promises to make him beg for the release of death before granting it. Playing along for his own survival, Seiji nonetheless is under no illusions who his true enemy is, and it's not the naive young would-be Hero from his own world.
Placed in an impossible position, Seiji must make enough progress toward world domination to keep his sadistic patron goddess off his back, but not so much that he can't strike an accord with the forces of Good and convince the Hero Yoshi that it's the goddesses who are their mutual enemy. Forced to embrace Evil without being too evil, Seiji walks the razor's edge, building his forces and biding his time till he can get revenge on the goddesses and be free of them, his only certainty that he will not be getting out of this with his hands clean.

Ms. Benett needed groceries. Mark liked to help his community. She was an old friend of his family from church. Not that he went much anymore, since college, and moving away. Its just not the same since coming back. But he still helps where he can. A long night working. A short drive home from her house. A dark road. That's all it took for Mark to find himself believing in gods again. Just not any of the ones he had heard of.
A final fight. A confrontation. A magical ritual capable of leveling a small city. A misplaced table and lack of spatial awareness. That's all it takes for Alverost to find himself stumbling backwards, triggering a spell that would see the grandson of a god reduced to ash. And himself reduced to ash by a god in turn.
Of course, the divinities don’t take too kindly to this. They’ve long since agreed to refrain from participating in mortal affairs personally— since the last war, where a dozen gods had died.
So amicably, they come to an agreement. Alverost is given a new body— though not a human one. That would piss off the god of death.
Alverost is taking Mark along with him for the ride.
A Dungeon Core novel where the dungeoncore find themselves at the deepest level of an already dead dungeon, and will have to work their way up while interacting with the societies that inhabit the dungeons corpse. Mark and Alverost are going to explore, exploit, expand, and exterminate.

Rakna wasn’t normal. No, unmistakably not. Whether it was his appearance, his personality, his abilities, his identity, nothing about him was normal. But he was trying to be. He was merely but a tormented soul doing its best to live the life it had been taught to enjoy again.
Would being collected by a glorified system bring something out of him? Would he finally learn to breathe in the pool of blood that suffocated him?
The Harvester does not sow, he only collects. All he has ever known to feel was loss and the only thing he can do now is take. He will devour their hearts and drink their blood if it is what it takes.

Karl Brunett leads a mediocre life and yearns for the opportunity to be something greater. Though never quite mustering the motivation to seize his place in the world. That's until the system decends on Earth and throws the old world into chaos. Having been somewhat prepared for a catastrophe he finds himself uniquely position to take the things he has always wanted. In doing so he might just save more people than he kills on his path to greatness.

***This is my first attempt at writing here... or anywhere, might start a little slow though I hope those who read it at least find it entertaining.***
Ozzy was a man of the wild. Raised in a remote village atop the world's mightiest mountain, he'd been taught to respect and revere the natural world. The realm he was born into had been there long before him, and it would remain there long after him. Sure, there was the occasional madman who threatened to destroy it, but such boasts were always empty. No one individual was actually capable of demolishing this beautiful blue-and-green ball Ozzy called home. No matter what terrible magics these villains wielded, they were incapable of causing permanent harm to the environment. Even if the planet was completely devastated, it would recover. Life would find a way to flourish, same as it always had. That was what Ozzy believed from the bottom of his heart, so he never once felt the need to save the world he loved. After all, it was never truly in danger. The world would be fine no matter what. The people were a wee bit endangered, but that was another story altogether.
However, what would happen if Ozzy suddenly found himself devoid of his beloved wilds? What would the man do if the realm he knew - one of wonder, magic, and chaos - was replaced with a man-made environment of concrete, industry, and steam? Ozzy could never imagine such a thing happening, and yet that was his new reality. After losing a fateful confrontation with a mad wizard, he and his friends found themselves transported to a strange world so thoroughly alien that every waking moment feels like a fever dream. Separated and scattered to the four corners of this land, each of these adventurers will need to adapt, survive, and overcome if they hope to reunite. They would also need to do so quickly. The sooner they are able to find one another, the sooner they can figure out a way back home and have another crack at putting an end to the villain's plans. Whether such a thing was actually possible in a world with barely any magic in it was a valid concern, but Ozzy had more immediate things to worry about. For instance, why did the air smell like a perpetual forest fire? How did ships sail through the sky as if it were water? And most importantly, was the pavement he was hurtling towards at high speed much softer than it looked?
Probably not, but a man could hope.
It's the year 2052 and the release of the new next generation full dive VRMMO game called The Depths of Magic is hitting the world by storm. The games technology will surpass all other games before it and shock the masses. Hector who goes by the name Locke inside the game is an an experienced player of the genre. He is looking to continue his goal of enjoying gaming as well as the competition that goes along with competing for the top ranking spots.
The Depths of Magic is a LitRPG novel focused in a Fantasy VRMMO setting. This is not a harem novel.
In Game systems
The Depths of Magic features state of the art technology never before seen in Hector's world. The key system the novel will bring up often is the Second Brain. The Second Brain system is more like a guidance AI for the players in the game that acts as if you had a second brain assisting your every action. How much guidance this AI will give is based on its experience; or mastery skills a player will receive in the game. The guidance is seamless to a point where a player won't even realize they are being assisted, it's will feel like what they are doing is something they could always do. However once they leave the game it will become quite apparent that they were receiving heavy guidance.
The purpose of this system in a writing sense is to explain why a player can realistically become more powerful, more agile, or more skilled then they would otherwise be able to as a human. To give an example if someone could move faster than a bullet, how would a a normal human brain be able to perceive and control this movement properly. Or how could a player who has never held a sword before become as experienced as someone who has trained with the sword all their lives.
The magic system will be another focus of this novel. I don't want to spoil anything here but it should be an interesting one. The hopes is that the system I have made will spark discussion between the readers on what combinations will do what. I already have most of it, but it will be fun to read as the author.
My general focus for this novel is to attempt to make the in game systems make sense. To give an vague example I have read a lot of novels of this genre and some have the habit of just creating such powerful items that it just breaks the system, and somehow the MC keeps finding challenging situations even with those items. What tends to happen when I read a novel like this I just ignore the stats of the items he is getting, because the numbers don't even matter anymore.
The chapter release schedule will be every Wednesday and Sunday.
1 chapter early release/discord access. Free content up to current chapter includes an excel sheet that contains Locke's current stats at the end of the chapter. This is extra information for those that are interested.
Follow Meadow Song, a 16-year old transfer student, delve into the darkness of Heaven’s Gate, capital of cultivation. Many people there aspire to ascend to Heaven but only a few know that the path to immortality is built on corpses. This glamourous city is home to all the classic factions of Wuxia-fiction. In this future-esque world, people learned to cultivate through artificial interfaces, so-called cyber spirits. How will Meadow, born with an innate grass-spirit, survive in this urban jungle?

Dying sucks. Waking up in a world filled with Aliens, Gods, and Monsters sucksx2. Learning that I'm technically still dead, well that takes the cake.
Ordinary day, ordinary life, that is until, I found myself getting stabbed to death by my fellow student for reasons unknown to me. Then some kind of holographic window prompting me to reincarnate appeared while I was busy drifting through the infinite darkness of the void. Of course, I pressed yes, it’s boring here, then found myself to be a dungeon master… As a fucking monkey no less…
This is a serious fic, so please don't think this is mostly comedy.

The Dungeon Challenge beckons.
Katha was taken, offered to the Challenge in exchange for mercy for the villagers of Reach. And now it’s up to siblings Malco and Reva, her only friends, to get her back. They’ll need the power of Archetypes. They’ll need levels. And for that, they’ll need to risk their lives.
In their way stands a perilous journey, deadly traps, and terrible monsters. Omnipotent Godtouched plot in the shadows, and older conspiracies come to light to threaten the land itself.
Larger than life, older than time, the Challenge itself lies in wait. It plays for keeps. You don’t get another try.
The Dungeon Challenge is my first stab at gamelit. A chapter a day for about a month and then Mon-Wed-Fri.

When people reincarnate with their memories intact, some of them try to start a new life. Some try to get revenge while others try to fix their mistake.
But, Seth couldn’t care less about any of this stuff. He just likes to fight. After reincarnating countless times and kicking alien ass, his latest adventure is on a fantasy planet. He is now a tiny pixie inside an unknown forest.
Will this deter him? Hell no.
“First, I'll conquer the forest and then the world!”
Join Seth on his epic adventure to fight anything and everything that crosses his path, to become the strongest pixie of all times, and of course, to conquer the world!
In the year 2090, technology has advanced to the point where Simulation Boxes, (Sim Box for short) are common place, allowing for the user to link up their brain's neural network to a full dive Simulation. While initially used for educational purposes, recently a large gaming company, Averon, released a fully fledged immersive MMORPG simulation where users can become anyone they desire, level up, choose their class, and become a hero or a villain. The name of this simulation is The Shattered World Online.
Eli Winters had no interest in playing it. His father, a jobless bum who spent his entire life playing games in the hope of becoming a famous player or streamer, was able to use the release of The Shattered World Online to gain wealth and fame, quickly becoming the number one player and a household name as the game took the world by storm. He immediately abandoned Eli and his mother in favor of being with someone from his guild, despite his mother having worked two jobs to support them and raise Eli by herself. Eli had nothing but spite for his father and the game.
When Eli's best friend convinces him to try out the game, his father's fame begins to interfere, culminating in him being singled out and shunned by his peers, and his father offering to pay for his university tuition in return for Eli hiding their relationship and quitting the game. Instead of complying with his father's wishes, Eli decides to prove to everyone how useless a guy his father is by challenging him that if Eli is able to surpass him in the game world he must delete his account and quit his streaming career. His father accepts the challenge believing his son to be useless at games - but Eli will soon show him just how ambitious a spiteful person can be.
He wakes up without being able to see, taste or hear. Or even smell! But, after developing an eye for himself, he's able to recognize two facts: one, he is no longer human, and two, he's not on Earth anymore. He's in the middle of an asteroid field, stuck on a moderately large one with nothing around him but endless space. Heck, he's not even in the solar system!
And now it's up to him to grow larger and stronger in order to avoid being eaten. Going by the leviathan-sized creatures swimming about the asteroid field, he has a long way to go before he can so much as try to live calmly.
Don't let the fanfiction tag scare you off. This only barely takes place in that universe since I like the basics of the lore and nothing more. It will barely feature a single prominent character, and the focus will mostly just be on the main character trying to grow himself out of danger, in the meantime denying the very idea that he could possibly be lonely.
The first few dozen chapters will entirely focus on him growing from almost a gnat all the way to a real asteroid-eater. After that, an actual story will appear.
Got the idea when I was reading the 2017 Darth Vader comic and my mind suddenly flashed back to that scene in the original trilogy when they're in some asteroid field and almost get eaten by a big monster. I loved that scene, and my inhibitions will no longer chain me. Enjoy, but don't take this too seriously.
Vita lives on the streets, just trying to survive. But when the young thief awakens the power to consume or control the souls of the dead, her very existence is suddenly a danger to everyone she cares about. Yet power is power, and to the starving and desperate, isn't life a danger anyway?
Waking up in a Pokemon world is any 10-year-olds dream...Not so much for an 18-year-old. Don't get me wrong, I love the Pokemon games and even still play the new ones occasionally, but it is not my entire life like it was when I was a kid. I grew up and moved on to other things...like hot girls, but Pokemon has always had a special place in my heart.
No one wants to hear about my boring, poor college boy past, so I will summarise for you quickly. I was a normal college student, from a normal middle-class family, with normal girlfriends and friends. Not protagonist material at all!
Now onto what you will care to know. When I woke up, I was a baby in a Pokemon filled world, and with all my past memories...Sort of... But this world was only vaguely like the one from the manga or anime...it was much more...real. Like if someone took Pokemon and smashed it together with reality until it created something that made sense. The oddest part of all was my new parents... This is the story of how I was born into an unsettlingly realistic Pokemon world as the son of Jessie and James from Team Rocket. Oh, what Joy.
I will also be posting this story on Scribble Hub
Hey, what would you do after you got isekai-ed?
Look! A cockroach villain has appeared. Let's kill him before he messes things up. Too cruel? That kind of character is always introduced to be killed by the protagonist anyway so I'm doing the world a favor here. Less CO2 emission. It's time to "Go Green" guys, even in another world.
See over there, that's a trash young master type right there. What do I do? Endure the initial insults and provocation then dispose of him when no one sees of course. Why make things difficult?
Hmm, a pretty girl in peril. Potential love interest there… but no, I have enough problems as it is. At the very least, I won't help her just 'cause she's a female. Same goes for males. What? I support gender equality.
Hey, I know the clichés, what did you think I was going to do? Simply let it run its course? Well duh, I'll twist it to my benefit.
-This is a power fantasy story. Weak to strong, strong to stronger.
-The MC is very genre savvy and a hardcore internet citizen.
-English is not my first language, apologies for the imperfections.
-The cover isn't mine. I found it here.
A newly formed dungeon core awakes with no memory of who or what he was. In fact, he just found out that he died. He has no idea or when or how he came to pass, and now finds himself being forced to start all over as a dungeon core. Worse yet, he isn't even your average run of the mill dungeon. No, the Overseers, whoever they are, have designated him to be an experimental core. This means he doesn't have to play by all the rules, the bad news is that if the core oversteps his boundaries as a dungeon core too far he's more than dead; he's erased. Now he has to struggle to figure out what kind of dungeon he wants to be, all the while very aware that he can't play it safe. The overseers don't want safe, they want lines redrawn and limits reset. The question is, can he do it and survive? He asks, because he overstepped before he even made it to his new world.
Red cares little for mortals. To him, they were walking fonts of Essence. Despite his apathy, a blade without a wielder might as well be scrap metal. A spirit weapon, birthed by the gathering of Essence and lifeblood, is only as strong as its wielder. So he must put up with mortals, fighting alongside them to vanquish Monsters, devils, and, at times, humanity itself.
Soon, the day will come when he frees himself from a mere mortal's limitations.

Mikoto Suoh is the character in the image.
A high school student gets killed on his way to school and wakes up in the DC universe in the body of a 8 year old kid living on the streets of Macau. Luckily whatever brought him to this universe fraught with dangers didn't leave him empty handed.
The SI is a Warlock with the ability to bargain for souls and use the energy those souls generate to wield magic.
[THIS STORY IS A SATIRE/PARODY OF THE ISEKAI GENRE, PLEASE CONSIDER THAT BEFORE DIVING IN.]
Is also generally trashy and doesn't care so thats that.
Let's say you're having a cunt of a day. Just a mild one, to be fair. You have work, a coworker who's an insufferable twat, cranky boss and long hours. You put in your time, you go home, knowing that you'll be sleeping late again because of some videogame you really like. You imagine everything has this grey layer of bleh to it, and dream about your life being just a tad more exciting.
You wake up in another world.
With thousands of people gawping at you.
The person in this godforsaken mess is Steffany Hunt.
She goes from a teensy rural farm to the capital of mankind in a heartbeat, crossing worlds and various states of disbelief to get there. Only the empire of man ain't as golden as all the guady paint on the walls would have her think. Slavery is commonplace, murder is they way disagreements are settled, might makes right, and worst of all, nobody fekking apologizes for fekking up a damn ritual and summoning her.
To the short-tempered Canadian, this is a mortal insult. Now, fast forward two through two years of bottling up that anger and drudging through a city where life blatently sucks.
She holds out, she really does. Smiles and shows that fabled Canadian politeness. Until, one day, she boils over. With the Grand Demon's Duel -a premier tournament for arrogant young masters to preen and show off their absolute lack of martial skills- on the horizon, Steffany is about to channel all that hatred and anger. Directly into someone's crotch.
Faces will be stomped. Crotches smoten. Ancestors insulted. And All. Hell. Raised.
In the VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) Veritas Online, things are getting a little stale. Since the game launched, only one world-wide event has occurred, and that was a year ago in game. The players are having fun, but everyone agrees it's about time for something big to happen. Everybody tends to forget that big things grow from small things, and little things are always changing in Veritas.
The human country of Quarternell is at peace for the first time in...ever. Aspen, a retired war hero, has earned a quiet life together with his animal companions. They're tired of fighting, bigotry, and other people in general. They plan to live peacefully far away from the city. As soon as he figures out this farming thing, he's never going to go anywhere again. Unfortunately for him, his country and his Goddess aren't quite done with him yet.
Rouge_the_Rogue is a casual gamer in Veritas Online. She's just a kid, and her focus should be on school and hanging out with her friends. Emphasis on should. She's pretty good at school, and doesn't actually have that many friends. What she really loves is exploring all the cool ways the developers of Veritas found to make their game unique and realistic. Then she's offered a very special quest and an opportunity to go beyond the average player. She's never been that much of a rule follower anyway....
(Author's Note: New chapters of Legendary Farmer will be released at least twice a week. I keep a minimum of ten more chapters written than I've published, so this should be very reliable, even if I get sick or am on vacation. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing!)
Claud Primus, a self-declared master thief, has a simple goal. To live forever. It's a rather easy task, for miraculous objects called lifestones are able to extend one's lifespan. These lifestones are best found in the treasuries of nobles, lovely resorts that Claud pays a visit to every so often. Unfortunately, one of those nightly visits go awry, and Claud is forced to escape with just a single lifestone and a box in hand.
Normally, that's when things die down. The guards yawn, the gates close, and the night continues.
But this time, the night isn't that forgiving. A dozen schemes result in the murder of someone important, and with a convenient scapegoat — Claud — at hand, it doesn't take long for him to be framed as a heinous criminal, wanted for the indirect murder of someone high up...and it just gets worse from there.
Release frequency: one every few days or something, I guess.
(This work is also being serialised on Webnovel under the name Revile as a trial run)
'I've already experienced one omnipotent being flinging me from one Universe to another...I didn't need another one to destroy what I had just achieved and fling me off into the next'
Charlotte Syrup, former Sweet Commander of the Big Mom Pirates, flung into the world of My Hero Academia with no clue what anything is. Quirks? Heroes? Buttcheek clenching superpower? The only thing that comforts me is the fact that this does remind me of 'Earth'...right?
Watch as the Overpowered Pirate and her love Portugas D. Ace wreck havoc across the world of heroes and villains.
Loser: 'You've got to choose a side!' Heroes or Villains?
Me: Well, we're Pirates so...fuck you both
Loser 2: What kind of Pirate owns a megacorporation??
Me: My bad...*cough* We're filthy rich Pirates. Wanna sign up? Welcome to the Charlotte Group.
Take advantage of a racist world? Check. Take advantage of the oppressive laws people are under? Check. Take advantage of quirks? Triple Check. Still hate governments? Absolutely
A story about the conflict between the ideals Peace and Justice against Freedom and Privacy. The realization of the impossibility of Total freedom and the lengths she goes to see it done. Just add massive explosions, lots of swearing, and comedy to the mix.
This will be a 2 Part story.
First part: PARADISE
(A.N): If someone sends me a better title, I will use that. Deal is still up as well :D)
Disclaimers: It is to my great displeasure and sadness that I do not own One Piece or My Hero Academia. Hints of Undertale as well...I don't own that either. That is just really really sad. Nor do I own the cover art...but it's pretty close to how I envision Syrup in her late teen years :)
On the flip side, I do own Charlotte Syrup, my OC and a couple more extras in the story.
Note: This is the sequel to 'Welcome to the Charlotte Family' but while it is recommended to read it before, it is not needed. Separate Universe, different characters and story.
But remember, heavily OP MC! But I try to keep it interesting.
Give it a try and enjoy!

This is a fanfiction based on Harry Potter, written by JK Rowling. BEFORE YOU LEAVE, as fan fiction isn't what royal road is known for unless your book is called Borne of Caution, hear me out.
This is based 200 years into the future. Hogwarts will be very different, and besides some references, we will follow no characters from the book. In my opinion, this is more of a new, mature, and more realistic version of that universe. If we want to put an analogy to it, I'm borrowing the house, but it's my furniture and things on the inside.
Synopsis - 200 years since the battle of Hogwarts. The muggles know - magic is no longer a secret. Wizards and witches show their magical traits much later in life now, their powers weaker than previous generations... and to make matters worse, there is a steady decline in the wizarding population. Follow along as Lux, a muggle-born, shows the world what one determined young wizard can do.
