"What would you do if your life, memories, and feelings were suddenly tied to another person? 
Six people. One life. 
A spoiled prince haunted by a ghost. A big city swindler with a knack for illusions. A cold soldier with a sharp eye. A pirate with a few screws loose. A chieftain’s bookish daughter with carefully bandaged hands. A peacekeeping agent with an eye for vengeance. 
After simultaneously knocking on death’s door, these six find themselves psychically connected across national lines. Tensions rise between them and between their respective countries, which are recovering from a long war over the mysterious vitae—an energy source harvested and utilized in weapons and engines called conductors. Loyalty, memory, and sense of self blur as conspiracies encroach. 
Assassination attempts, a border conflict, a missing peacekeeping agent, a bar shootout, a tale of a bloodthirsty beast, and the terrorist organization ELPIS. 
—Everything is connected. Nothing is coincidental. The spark has ignited…!What would you do if your life, memories, and feelings were suddenly tied to another person? "

Six Chances part 1 is finished and part 2 is ongoing!

I'm just getting started with this, but I am working on it every day!

The Astronomer - From rural pre-WW1 Austria, astronomer Gustav Silber has located the singular, finite "origin point" from whence all that exists once emerged. Emil Weiss, the apprentice of Gustav Silber himself, doubts his mentor's theory, believing it might be Silber's attempt to proclaim himself a god.

Synopsis
Katsuragi Kenta was a gamer. He did exactly what he needed to obtain the games he wanted and the time to play them; nothing more, nothing less. When his entire class is transported to a fantasy world, Kenta is suddenly an expert on their situation and the world around them. Naturally, he sets out on his own to escape his two faced classmates.
Two months later he returns and discovers that Momokawa Kyou, formerly the most popular girl in class, was left behind by their classmates. The two strike up an uneasy alliance despite despising each other. What’s more, they may have to work together to survive a curse.
Kenta will have his hands full surviving his new fantasy world. If the monsters don’t get him, Kyou just might!



Reasons to read the story:
* It's a story in the style of a Japanese Light Novel, written in English by a German; that has to mean something!
* The story mixes well-known cliches with a fresh breath of originality and satire. If you seek new and old at the same time, it may be for you!
* There is a big comedic element involved.
* The MC is neither OP, nor a clear underdog, it's a story about growth in power and personality, and this MC has a lot to grow personality-wise.
* The girls in this harem-story are strong personalities, for better or worse, and have their own wants and needs without any relation to the MC.
* Volume 7 is currently on weekly release schedule

This thread was so fun to read.

I'm currently posting my novel Psy, a chapter a day (they're mostly pretty short chapters, and there are 79 in total). After that I'm going to continue the story here on RR.

Psy is a light sci-fi, set in London. The main character is Jessa Baxter, and her main parapsychological ability is telekinesis. She's just started attending The Winsbury School of Parapsychology, the most prestigious parapsych school in London. But her abilities start to become stronger, which leads her to a path where she and her friends discover a lot more darkness than they thought possible.

A little sci-fi, a little magical realism, a little adventure, a little mystery, a little scary...

Check out Psy here:

Note: the main characters are teenagers but my biggest pet peeve in YA lit is teenage crushes and weird love triangles. There's none of that here.

What Happened to the Mouse?[/left]

Genre: Mystery/Sci-Fi

Description:
Seven years ago, Maria's mother vanished, and she was taken in by her Uncle Johann, a reclusive inventor. Now she stands accused of her uncle's murder under circumstances that mirror her mother's disappearance: a locked room, a sole suspect, and a lab mouse that appeared seemingly out of nowhere.

As the building is locked down, a hard-nosed federal agent launches an investigation under a cloak of secrecy. Whatever Uncle Johann's latest invention does, it's dangerous enough to be locked away forever. And if Maria can't uncover the truth, she will meet the same fate.

In this interactive story, it is up to you to use your comments to study the clues, solve the riddles, and help Maria clear her name.

Well, I completely forgot about this,didnt I? Welp, here's my story. 

An 'Ordinary' Adventure.

https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/30266/an-ordinary-adventure


Genres - Action, Adventure, fantasy and comedy

- contains Gore and Profanity.

A series of unfortunate events lead to the self-proclaimed ordinary guy, Knight Yuudai, to be imprisoned in another world. He, and a young girl he was imprisoned with, must escape together.
They will travel across the demon-infested Dragon Lands to reach the exiled races, who were born from the Elder Dragon. Along the way he must fight the parasites that are the demons.
His journey will make him bear witness to the horrors and wonders this world has to offer, while desperately searching for the last bit of familiarity that resides at the floating world tree.


- Light novel format with each chapter consisting of a multitude of 1k-3k parts. Chapters as a whole are around 20k.
- Isekai where the protagonist isn't op for once! Actually far from it.
- Cute lolis for all those who love 'em, but don't worry, it will still include your typical big-chested women.
- A tale that starts off despairingly and evolves along with the mc into a hopeful adventure!
- Fun magic and combat! Flexible power but weak protag
- a few brothels along the way ;) 
- A new world filled with vast lore for the protagonist to discover on his journey! And hopefully, some side stories taking place in the past!
- Oh, I said hopeful... yes and no. Definitely becomes hopeful but, as the abyss encroaches on the DragonLand continent, something similar crawls its way into our protagonist.
- If you like Satella encroaching on Subaru's life in Re zero, this will include something similar. Hehe

I really hope you guys will give it a read!

The PROTAGON-ISH

Who’s the big bad, fire-breathing, knight-crunching, castle-pillaging dragon? Well, honestly, not Faffy, the baby dragon. 
Between dodging experience-starved players in the game world of 7EVEN, and trying to conquer the Dragon Clan that banished her family - Faffy just wants to become a [PROTAGONIST] and make her sire proud.
The only problem? Faffy was tiny, timid, weak and always hungry. That, and the fact the 7 deadliest threats in the world are hell-bent on hunting her tiny hind scales.

Our little hatchling will need to survive swords, magic, the occasional damsel in distress and even missing snack time. To at least be a little special - to be a [PROTAGON-ISH].

Ah, let me shamelessly promote my story. My story, A world of Monsters,  follows a monster and a human in a system word, with a Buddhist/Hindu philosophy. The System is especially influenced by this philosophy. 

https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/35642/a-world-of-monsters

Things I can promise, in the story:
1. Grammar [As per Graammerly]
2. Monster will be a monster while the human will be a human.
3. Evolutions.
4. No harem.
5. Grimdark
6. Well defined characters [In my opinion at least XD]
7. No OPness.

If any of these things catch your attention, give the story a read.
