Pitch me your stories!
In short, a nice farmer - let's call her Fuzzygator - gets introduced to a guy somewhere between Clark (as in Lewis and --), a YouTuber, and a wizard - let's call him Numb Guy - after she and all her people and all her planet are kidnapped and puzzle-pieced into a city where the word "unusual" doesn't belong. Due to their suddenly changing life circumstances, they're both forced to make some really drastic adjustments to their future plans. Those adjustments involve odd sci-fi, philosophy, ruminations on the nature of existence, birds, and lots and lots of knives.
This is definitely not for everybody, and if you drop it post haste, that's A-okay.
For plot: it concerns a young man who after the wrongful death of his family is sent to a Martial Order in order to master swordsmanship and get justice for his parents. However things become complicated when he is tasked with recovering a long-lost magical object that has resurfaced, the Flaming Medallion. Without giving away too many spoilers, storyline is somewhat closer to LOTR and Western fiction rather than your typical cultivation novel.

My 3-book series that I'm posting as a single fiction here is Fantasy flavored with a wild west setting, steampunk-like technology, enough romance to draw you in, horror to keep you hooked, and just enough sex to keep things spicy.
My main character, Llew, can come back from death... but she must kill to do so.
One nation wants her dead, another wants her to be the mother of its next generation of soldiers, and one man wants her blood.
And then there's Jonas: the man with the unique ability--and carrying the knife with the power--to kill her permanently. Luckily, he doesn't know what she is when they first meet, and he might just like her enough not to stick the knife in her when he finds out...
First Contact is a story of an interstellar war that wracks the Orion-Cygnus Galactic Arm Spur, between ancient civilizations and a half-feral humanity and their allies. With multiple fronts, multiple viewpoints, and multiple MC's, it spans over 500 chapters and 1.6 million words so far, and is updated three to seven times a week.

This is definitely not a martial arts crackpot mixed in with some science fantasy bullshit, but I should implore you to go check it out. Updates daily until the first book/chapter is done, then I'll hafta slow down a bit.
I didn't steal from Journey to the West either, because that would be silly.
Here a glimpse of some of the cast (link to the work in my signature):
My story is about a witch named Jacinta, who lives in an alternate, magical NYC. She’s struggling—magic is becoming increasingly unstable; (city rats are becoming massive, for example—the size of big dogs), magic and supernaturals are being cracked down on as the government becomes more authoritarian; and generally she’s just having really bad luck. And also sort of accidentally killed her grandma.
Supernaturals are being captured by another entity altogether; when Jacinta’s sister is taken, she tries to find out what happened—and stumbles into a conspiracy of endless worlds, rebirth, and a group that’s trying to take it all for themselves. Jacinta might lose herself, but if it means saving her sister, she’ll do it. [Magic, Re- Incarnate]
I hope you find some cool stories! :)
(Edited for spacing lol)
Additionally, a reader can offer his/her own choice instead of ready ones.
Here's the first chapter:

I’m open to pretty much anything, but tend to enjoy fantasy, adventure, mystery, and horror the most. I am NOT interested in litRPGs, poetry, short story compilations, or fanfiction. So with that in mind, throw me some suggestions! If you could provide a quick summary of your stories along with the link that’d be most appreciated. Thanks! :)Hmm. You said Short Story Compilation, so I'd assume Short Story is fair game.
Cry Wolfe is one where you'd find a man lost in two identities. It explores a bit about morals and, of course, the fantasy aspect of there being a werewolf, so give it a try.
Meanwhile, there is Descent, my current project, exploring the plight of a pair of twins after they were forced to run. From what, I would not spoil, but for now, I plan to move it more towards a dark sort of tone, so if you're interested, do take a read.
Other than those two, all my other dribbles and series are on other sites or are simply shit, so that's all. :p
Both works in the signature.

So my novel has fantasy, grimdark, adventure, mystery, and gore tag. Pretty much everything you like, right?
Here is the synopsis though.
He, who had forgotten his memory, whose very existence was unclear, woke up to see an unfamiliar hall filled with many people.
