Since a long, long time ago. The gods from another world have been taking people from Earth and turning them a Hero. But sometimes, the heroes succeed with their mission and went back to Earth with extraordinary, if not, supernatural powers.
The cycle repeat and those heroes breed, sometimes with a normal human, and sometimes with another hero.
But what's it like to be the son of the most famous heroes of all time?
I think I know, but as I begin my own adventures after my parent leaving me and my two little sisters just for the sake of defeating demon lord from another world, I discover just how much of a challenge it really is to live up to the legend of the great Ranger and Alchemist. To make matter worse, as if it isn't enough dealing with the delegates from the Hero Guild and making sure that I already give my sisters their lunch money, I somehow begin to uncover a secret plot that could pit the normal human and the hero against each other in an all-out war.
But how can I know if my efforts are only helping the cause or working right into the plans of his enemies? Before I can know for sure, I have to learn the difference between being a hero and being the son of a hero.
A 24 year old young man Jason Lee spent the last 4 years of his life paralyzed without a single chance for recovery. These 4 years were tryly traumatic for Jason and looking for an escape from evergrowing depression he dived deep into films, books and stories that by standarts of his time deemed old and boring.
How can a new game featuring a full VR compare to books that are 200 years old, how can a completly interractive action film compare to a documentary about ancient civilizations, how can stories of adventures actross the starts and space that would be feasable in not such distant future compare to a complete fiction about magic wands and an orphan who became a wizzard. But for Jason these "old and boring" films and fictional stories were interesting and intriguing. Fueled by them he found a new dream, a dream to at least try to live like characters of those books and documentaries. A dream that shouldn't have happended if not for the Voice.
Take a look at what is it like to find out that life of your dreams ins't all sunshine and rainbows with Jason.
If you had a chance to take a look at my content please be free to leave your comments and critisizm as well as point out any mistakes that I may have made (as I am not a native speaker and started this project mostly to refine my English there may be quite a few of them). This story doesn't yet have a full plot planned out so in the future, tags and genres of the story may increase and even slightly change.
Just some stupid joke idea, that I have no clue, what to do with.

It's 4 AM and the AC unit Ethan had been working on was still broken. If this was something he did for a living he'd be embarrassed. It wasn't; instead, it was worse, it was his own. Florida heat during peak summer temperatures meant he'd have a spectacular week. Still he had his actual job he had to be up attached 5 in the morning for. This would make what 4 hours of sleep the last 3 days. At least there was coffee.
That all Changed the day of the accident and who ended up being reincarnated.
This is an attempt at a wuxia fantasy hybrid that aims to fix the problems with the wuxia genre, mainly side characters, character development, bland romance, repetative combat, an evil mc for no reason, stupidity and cultivation.
Cultivation angers me to no end, supposedly gaining power by sitting in a room with eyes closed. People would be bored out of their minds so quickly. It's all based luck at birth and talent at sitting still...
There will be cultivation, but the main characters (and they will be characters, not flat emotionless filler) will not cultivate. The main character will be dark but with purpose, the heroine will not fall instantly or easily for the main character, it will not even be helpless romance, it will be violent, brutal, and passionate. Each character will have wants and motives that they will strive for, not simply following the main character into danger because plot armor.
An immortals life, even amongst countless years longing for death will bring no yield, pain and sorrow will stay for eternity living with past mistakes to never again relive past horrors this novel will be about a journey of a man named Fey and his quest to bring an end to the burden he carries will he succeed or simply bring forth his past?
This story is a mix of mythology, mystic and my fantasy. It tells about a small group of unbeaten soldiers.
What does immortality mean?
What is death?
There are also those philosophical questions and maybe you can find the answers of them by reading it.
There also lots of symbols from mythology and poetry.
If you love mystic, fantasy and philosophy, just try it.
Elinor just had the craziest morning in her life, and yet it was nothing compared with what was to come... the vanishing of a red button, a cute boy with a burning hand, an overly-seductive class president, exploding pimples and hot milk coffee... Everything seems to be connected yet completely isolated from each other. Follow Elinor's story and her quest to make sense of the meaning of the world and perhaps her own straying self...
This is a series of events in a fantasy world.
Pei Li-er is an aspiring cultivator: He has one wish and one wish alone.
He simply wants power, and lots of it. Armed with determination and his ridiculous amount of luck, Pei will wade through the deep end of this cesspool of a cult- The cult of cultivation.
Looking around myself I saw nothing. Only space stretching on and on for as long as I can see. Now… How did I end up here? Well I have no idea. From what I can remember, I should have died back in my world, but I suddenly found myself floating here. Well… wonder where I will end up?
English is not my native language, so there will be some bad gramma... Open for suggestions to the story and if you find any mistakes. Thanks!
I will listen.
Be it good or bad, I will listen. I will be the last being to know of your life; your story.
Rich or poor, healthy or sick, male or female, good or evil, I will hear you out. I will remember your name. Throughout my life, and throughout my entire being, I will remember you. Even if the world burns and history fades, you will stay within me, until time collapses.
Now tell me. Let me hear it, your last moments.

“When the world was born, so too was ‘The Onus Chalice’. Within it, the gods had poured all the fates and destinies of the world. But unknown to the gods of both the high heavens above and the deep pits bellow; within that cup fell the drops of uncertainty.”
In a world full of certainty, uncertainty appeared.
Hundreds of thousands of people were unknowingly brought into a nightmarish death game where monsters and demons ran rampant. Along with it, all of their memories were entirely erased, and they were left only with their names as they ventured the vast world of Grimgoire.
With a head full of doubts and questions, the players delved deeper and deeper into the secrets hidden beneath this nightmarish death game; and one player in particular dominated the rest. His name was Fidel, a man who was driven to near insanity from wanting to find out the truth about this world, and the reason why they were summoned here.
Throughout his journey, Fidel found out one obvious truth about this world-- and that it was the strong who lorded over this entire realm, and those who did not possess sufficient means and strength-- they can either die a horrible death or forever be slaves to the strong. In the end, power was what determined your fate in Grimgoire. And if Fidel ever wants to find out the real reason for this whole ordeal, then he needed to first be the strongest.
