It's only a month away from high school graduation and Elias Newton's eighteenth birthday. Yet, Eli's whole world is rocked to its foundation when everyone on the planet above the age of fifteen is granted one or more powers from the enigmatic System. Each power seems to be handpicked to fit their new wielders fondest memories... or their greatest fears.
Sounds great when your first power is Teleportation, but things take a drastic turn now that everyone has the power to do what they wish for better or worse.
*LitRPG system with powers, unique stats, power crafting, merging, evolution, and more.
**Slice of life and coming of age with a fair amount of action scenes due to the natural upheaval of events. With that said the MC is not a murderhobo. These powers and the events are traumatizing and upset his entire life plans. It takes him time to adjust to the new world order and go from reactive to proactive, but it does/will happen by the end of the first book.
Release schedule is on a rolling basis of every two to three days after the most recent chapter release.
Car . . . Ice . . . Corner . . . Do not mix. But never mind! Here I am - alive somehow and somewhere different? There's an orange glow and I can't control my body much . . . Wow I'm tired . . . it's time to sleep again . . .
Join our lead getting used to their new world from the womb and their new life with stats, levels and magic. What would you do if you were given a second chance at life?
Very slow burn, Slice of life, Levels, Skills and Stats
Warning I : Will be in the womb till Chapter 14 but small 1000 word chapters so only around 15,000 words before birth.
Warning II : Slow pace and world building learning from a child's perspective about the world, they are not told about everything instantly. They grow they learn at their own pace.
Larger Synopsis for the larger world.
Follow our lead as they explore the world of the Compass Kingdoms, who battle and war on the main continent. The story will be about levelling up their friends and families lives as much as themselves. The challenges they will all face in trying to build a better future against the powers that would like things to stay the same or take advantages of the changes.
Dale Mitchell, your average guy in a below-average job. But, what happens to him is anything but average. After hitting someone in his truck, his world was turned upside down, inside out, and more than fifty shades of grey.
Now, he seems to be something called a World Keeper, and must create and manage his own world. Is this his afterlife, or something else entirely?

If you liked this consider supporting me at KO-FI, It would help me continue dedicating more time to novel writing.
If you decided to drop this story, I would really appreciate it if you left a comment at the last chapter you reached explaining Why.
And for those who keeps complaining about the harem... Ahmmm. This is a harem story, if you have a problem with that, don't read it.
[I accidentally got engaged to the evil owl-goddess who is obsessed with the number-three and now I have to make weapons for our new adventuring guild]
In an era in which ancient gods live in the world’s cities together with their mortal followers, forming tight-knit guilds and powerful temples, the disfigured ash-caster and blacksmith Hineni has lived his entire life as a reclusive outcast. Hidden away behind layers of clothing and just as many walls and doors, he only ever leaves the house in the dead of night, so that neither the gods or anyone else can ever see him.
However, on one of these night-tide outings, he finds that has gained the unwanted attention of what is seemingly a perfectly normal owl and through his unwitting efforts at simply filling his nights with acts of personal meaning, he ends up promising himself to a creature that is perhaps even less versed in human ways than he himself is;
a mysterious, odd owl-goddess that nobody seems to have ever heard of, Obscura.
Hineni, having had no greater purpose in life until now, finds himself willing to accept this turn of events and dedicates himself to creating a brand new adventuring guild, under the watchful eyes of the ancient entity Obscura, who has only one, clear, proclaimed goal -
- To hunt the BIG FROG! BIG FROG! BIG!

We all want to believe we are heroes of our own story - unless we want to be the villain, of course.
At the end of everything, the Final Reaper decided he hadn’t been a hero. Driven by a desire to right the wrongs he was subjected to, he killed everyone who wronged him or his people - which turned out to be everyone that wasn’t killed by someone else first. He'd won - but it was a hollow victory.
Eventually, Order’s Voice found a way out. If the only existing being would agree to give up most of his power, the Voice could reset the multiverse to an earlier time with a few minor changes. Of course, the Voice couldn't ask it that way. It could only ask if the Final Reaper was willing to start over from when Earth was first brought into Order.
It was an easy decision, and yet it wasn’t. Was he willing to go through eons of pain again to not be alone?
Yes. In a heartbeat.
Not that his heart beat anymore. Now it would. Perhaps he could even be a hero, this time.
When he landed in his old body - more or less - on Earth, the Final Reaper once again became Thomas. He was both and neither. He needed a new name for a new life.
While this is technically a System Apocalypse story, it's a System Apocalypse that is designed to have a large percentage of the population survive and prosper. There are a lot of problems that come with the appearance of the Voice, and it's entirely possible to lose. Earth has some special opportunities, but also special challenges.
The first time around, Earth won the first round and lost the second. Serenity has ten years from when the Voice arrives to prevent that from happening. It will be a group effort; Serenity can't win alone - which is difficult for someone who's been alone for as long as he has.
Of course, that's only his second priority.
A note on the nonhuman lead tag: He isn't human, and hasn't been human for a very, very long time (or maybe not long at all, depending on how you count it). He still thinks of himself as human, either way.
The content warnings are mostly to give me room to write; this fiction is not intended to be edgy, but once in a while a character will swear or someone will get seriously injured.
The cover image is a Chandra/Hubble composite image of VV 340 / Arp 302 / UGC 9618. While we're not going to space itself any time soon in the story, people from elsewhere are coming to Earth and Serenity will visit other planets. Plus, I like space imagery.

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.

When you wake up on the roof of a burning building, in a city under attack by aliens, you know it's going to be a bad day.
When you can't remember your name or your past, you know it's going to be a bad week.
When you start seeing messages that tell you to level up?
Time to settle down for the long haul.
A LitRPG about alien invaders, superhuman defenders, and one poor guy stuck in the middle with a serious case of memory loss.
Updates every 4-5 days.
Note for readers: while most chapters are in first person, a number of chapters with different third person POVs are titled 'Interlude'. These chapters also have an impact on the story, and the terminology is a personal choice.
What young boy doesn't crave adventure? What young man doesn't wish to be a superhero?
But time marches on, and life grows dull with responsibility. Is it any wonder that old dreams are forgotten?
Welcome to The Law of Averages: In which a man is dragged solidly out of his comfort zone. Be careful what you wish for, you never know when it will come true.
This story follows Daniel Newman as he adjusts to a strange new world. One where superpowers are for sale, where heroics are frowned upon, and where life is constantly defying Daniel's expectations. Dan always thought that he was destined to be normal, but one world's normal is another world's special.
The Law of Averages now has a Patreon page!
Reincarnated as a child in a new world a mild mannered programmer, named Sage, finds himself struggling to survive. The road to immortality is paved with danger, treasure, and conflict. This mystical eastern world is filled with Demonic Beasts, Treacherous Cultivators, and Extraordinary Legacies. Follow Sage on his journey to adapt to this new world, and find out if he can overcome the limitations of body, mind, and soul. Will he rise to the occasion and become a hero? Or maybe he'll turn to the dark side and end up a villain?
Molting the Mortal Coil is more of a slower paced journey. It's not about endless battles and conquering the next bad guy who spits on the main characters shoes or sends him a funny look. There's also not a treadmill of tournaments or love interests. It's more of a slower burn with lots of, and hopefully not too much, world building. It's still supposed to be stuffed with action, but that won't pick up for a while since we start with a weakling. The first 30 chapters have a lot of time-skipping, but stay with me it gets better. I plan to re-write and add more to the first 30 in the future, but if you can push through I feel it gets much more fun after!
Updates will be weekly. If you want to see more chapters, check out my Patreon(button at the bottom of every chapter)! Thanks everyone!
Pax, a street rat without a class, couldn't care less about the beast waves pounding into the city walls every night. That's what the city's warriors and mages are for.
He's been fighting to keep his crew fed and out of the Guards hands. After his family disappeared, his crew was all Pax had left. He'd do anything for them especially when his best friend is captured.
Pax risks capture on the eve of the Awakening, knowing if he's caught, he'll be forced to take a class and lose his freedom.
When the worst happens, he's forced to become part of the Astan Empire's war machine. Shipped off to survive the dangers of the empire's elite academy, Pax fights to control the forbidden magic raging inside him. The powerful, old guard in charge doesn't take kindly to hints of change or rebellion.
Thrown into dangerous waters, Pax refuses to quit. He grabs for as much power, coin and influence as possible. With the empire fighting for survival around him, Pax uncovers ancient secrets, battles powerful monsters and schemes to unlock ancient and lost spells.
If his enemies would just give him enough time, he'll make sure they never bother him and his own again.
Regular release schedule: 3 chps/week. T, Th, & Sa, with occasional bonus chapters.
Update: As of 11/2/2022 I've finished writing Book 1, so this project will not be abandoned. I've started working on Book 2: Emerging Rebel and will continue my current posting schedule without interruptions.
An irritated Pokemon might tell you to stop what you're doing. An irritated animal will probably just attack you. Pokemon, for all their power, would be open books and a breeze to care for to any competent animal handler on Earth. After a fiery death, a professional zookeeper who never outgrew Pokemon games ends up in the world of Pokemon. The entire world is thrown onto its side.
Sunwhisper is the youngest member of an exploration team sent across space and time to find the source of all magic. After his group is wiped out by a single old cultivator, he must find his place as an android in a world without machines, seeking to complete the mission meant to save the reality from which he came. Though his ability to cultivate is almost nonexistent, he has one advantage, the reality he came from was a LitRPG. [participant in the Royal Road Writathon Challenge] Updating Daily all November]
This is a (light) LitRPG, cultivation story.
Emmanuel is a part of an unlucky group that got reincarnated to another world. A harsh place governed by a [System], brimming with monsters and people seeking to exploit the fresh [Heroes]. The locals have turned min-maxing into an exact science, which is the backbone of their society. Experience is used as a currency nations are willing to fight wars over.
There's just one small problem - the universe is not fair.
Shunned by all, Emm has no access to the [System].
And without it, survival seems all but impossible.

"Survival of the fittest is easier said than done...why couldn't I have been reborn a bit bigger, huh?"
If waking up in a new world wasn't bad enough, an idealistic teen starts her new life as a newborn dragon not by being embraced by a loving family, but having to escape two hungry kobolds wanting some grilled lizard for breakfast. Now, status screens obscure her vision in a hostile forest filled with vicious magical monsters, as two concerning Titles welcome her to her new life.
Equipped with fragmented memories from her past life and the game-like mechanics of her new reality, the young dragon must face trials and tribulation, undeterred by the reaper's scythe inches from her neck. Despite her challenges, she is determined to find civilization. For nothing will stop her from fulfilling her one true desire: to become an Idol.
Note: I am currently editing and rewriting my early chapters due to growing as an author over these two years.

I am using you guys' feedback to grow, so thank you for your patience!
Author Notes: I'll update the story every 2-3 day, if nothing major in my life happens.

When Peter suffers a too-close encounter with a truck, he finds himself reborn in another world. At first glance it is a perfect fantasy land. There's magic to play with, elves singing in the forest and a hyperactive catgirl neighbour. There's even a System that lets him earn skills and level up. But it isn't long before he notices that the world is far too perfect. Just why is everyone so nice? Can Peter accept the alien morality of this world's self-proclaimed protector, or will he seek to overthrow her?
Set after the events of A Lonely Dungeon, a few hundred years after the rebirth of civilization, this is a story about an earthling falling into Erryn's new world and the subsequent struggles of himself and Erryn to understand each other. It's a slow paced slice of life, and while there are pieces of action, don't expect any immediate grand conflict between Erryn and Peter.
Published here, scribblehub and amazon. Two new chapters a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The fate of humanity did not rest on Tom, but it sure felt like it. Then again, despite their numbers all the chosen felt the same way.
The trial, the tutorial, or whatever you wanted to name it, was over. After forty long solitary years spent mastering the system, Tom, with his abilities reset was going to have to do it all again to save humanity.
The cost of failure would have an unimaginable impact on his friends and family. His sacrifices had propelled him into the top million, giving him the opportunity to make a difference. And he had a risky plan to do so.
Against their will, humanity had been chosen, and all Tom could do was to work with the system.
Universe spanning gods ran a regular competition on a world called Existentia where they pitted seven species from different universes all of whom have dominated their home planet against each other.
But a straight-out fight would be too simple. Existentia is a living, breathing, impossibly large, magical world with existing empires, secrets, dungeons and trials. The seven races in the current iteration of the competition have their own unique advantages to exploit, but first they have to survive long enough to show their worth.
Fate points is a third person single POV litrpg with a unique system and mechanics and strong, complicated side-characters.
I have a large back log and will be posting a chapter every weekday with an average length of over three thousand words. To the extent this backlog gets reduced I may slow the posting schedule or reduce average word count. I welcome constructive feedback and I will respond to questions if I see them.
We tried, you know…
We really did.
We tried so hard to be… better…
We actually were better once. No, seriously. We were enlightened, generous, peaceful…
Stop laughing! We were! We were peaceful, dammit!
No, I’m not “tugging your winglets.” It’s true!
Look, if you’re going to be like that, I’ll just push the launch button right now. See ya, don’t wanna be…
Oh, you ARE interested after all? Ok.
Hey, I just got word that your captain will be ok. We were able to get him into a med pod quick enough… Of course, we tried to save him. Just what sort of people do you think we are?...
Now that was harsh… completely accurate, mind you… but harsh.
Anyway, like I was saying, we were a prosperous, peaceful people, and war had been nothing but a distant memory for over five hundred years before it happened...
Before Yellowstone happened! You don’t mean to tell me that you didn’t know about that… Massive supervolcano? Blew the Hell out of our planet? Two years where nothing grew?…
Anyway, that’s what started it, the Sol Wars…
Oh, you have heard about those, huh? Well, needless to say, all that enlightened, generous, and peaceful didn’t exactly make it through that. Maybe it’s more accurate to say the enlightened, generous, and peaceful among us didn’t survive…
(laughs)… You’re right. It does explain a lot, doesn’t it?
Probably for the best, though. “Enlightened” and “peaceful” aren’t really all that useful out here in the galaxy, are they? We're not the only jerks out here. We aren't the worst ones, either, not by a long shot.
That reminds me, thanks for the ship. It's really nice. Oh, don’t be like that. At least it was us what got you and not one of the really messed groups like the Harlequin or the Black Angels. We’re just going to take your shit. It could be worse… trust me...
Well, anyway, we loaded the life pods down with some good food, and you guys can drink alcohol, right? We put in a couple of fifths in there, too. It’s about forty percent ethanol, so be warned. We’ll drop your wounded off somewhere safe once they are stable.
Your fleet patrols this area fairly regularly, and we’ll drop the distress beacon right before we jump…
Well, It’s been fun and no hard feelings, right?…
Oh, you want to know some more? Sure. I got time to kill…
It’s the thirty-second century, and humanity is now part of a galactic civilization comprised of hundreds of worlds. Humanity has been savaged by natural disaster and war and has been fractured into several separate populations, all of which loathe each other (some things never change). This is a gritty drama-driven rambling tale that swings between action, drama, horror, and plenty of very, very dark comedy.
Warning: contains adult situations, absolutely horrible language, bathroom humor, implied ultra-violence, actual ultra-violence, drugs, alcohol, pirates, mercs, xeno prostitutes, moral ambiguity, deranged AI's with identity issues, giant commie space slugs, and a poor little frog girl who just wants to sell coffee.
Updated daily (more or less) until I can catch Royal Road up to the original posts (which are still ongoing).
Those warning tags on top? Yeah... They aren't for show. This story can get pretty dark. It's not a "grimdark" slog through gore, but it does have its moments. I don' t pull punches and some heavy/contentious issues are involved sometimes. Please bear in mind that this is a work of fiction and just because a character, even a main or sympathetic one, does something or endorses something, the author is NOT endorsing it. (I'm a decent human being. I promise!)
The main rule of this tale is, "no good guys". It's less "good versus evil" and more "bad people doing bad things to worse people".
Pick your favorite rogue, kick back, and enjoy the show!
Reborn into another world as Alana, the former resident of Earth must now try to make her way. While heroes fight great monsters and kings war the peasants suffer and die, unable to save themselves.

Strive, strive all she can against an unfair and uncaring world of dark lords, dungeons, uncaring nobles, heroes, and magic. Come along as she uses magic and wit in a bid to survive.
