‘Never go out at night without a silver weapon.’

The city of Valstandt is home to a unique problem: it’s a red-carpet invite to all things supernatural. Malevolent spirits manifest nightly, deathfog shrouds the air outside its walls, and beneath the roads, a vast network of underground catacombs full of occult activity root themselves deep into the earth.

Thankfully, the Farlight Institute is home to the next generation of spiritualists—fixers trained in all things related to ghost-killing and monster slaying.

Kaius Gwyn, son of the legendary Thousand Minds, is one of their field operators.

…Or at least, he will be; once he finally finds an agency to hire him.


This story is set in a modern gothic setting with complete with demon cults, supernatural monsters, dirty pubs, soul-eating fog, and... trams. It's a creative experiment and a lovechild of all the ideas I adore, but it's also a first draft. If you're interested in detectives, occult stuff, and psionically charged shotguns, please give it a shot. I'd be happy to hear what you think.

Spiritualist Kai will be updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Jin Rou wanted to be a cultivator who defied the heavens, and surpassed all limits.

Unfortunately for him, he died, and now I’m stuck here. Arrogant young masters? Heavenly tribulations? Cultivating for days on end, then getting into life or death battles?

Yeah, no thanks. I'm getting out of here.

In which a transmigrator decides that the only winning move is not to play.

A conversation with a handsome stranger leaves Ariane chained in a cellar with a strange affliction. She soon discovers that the darkness of the nineteenth century’s Deep South hides many dangers. Mages, wolf shifters and the humans who hunt them play a risky game where to stumble is to die, all under the amused gaze of the apex predators of the supernatural world: vampires.
It is never healthy to attract the gaze of the aristocracy of the night. It takes much to survive in this merciless world, but Ariane will not let that deter her. The southern belle has a bite, and she is willing to learn and to grow in this hostile new world. She will use whatever means necessary to reclaim her freedom, be it guile, charm, or those intriguing new instincts that make blood so delectable. 

 

 

This is a story of vampires as I believe they should be, with their strengths and weaknesses, with their remnants of humanity and the beast inside. Updates every Friday. Mind the tags.

Vengeance. Artifex spent hundreds of years, forging an empire that could protect humanity from the endless hunger of the Unity.  Now he finds himself in the ruins of all he built, and the people who betrayed him have made a deal with the Unity…

Power. The brutal sands and endless struggle for survival is all Safira has ever known.  But a lucky find gives her the chance to be so much more than a scavenger. But opportunity and danger go hand in hand, and escaping with her life just got that much harder.

Ruthlessness. Elinor North has spent her entire life struggling to prove herself.  As the head of a cadet branch of the powerful Montclair family, she must fight against enemies from both within and without, for her rivals are not just outsiders - they are her own kin. 

All of them are light years apart, but inexorably tied to the ulterior motives of those around them and a shared destiny that will shake civilization to its foundations.
