I Will Touch the Skies - A Pokemon Fanfiction

I Will Touch the Skies (...)
by Soussouni
2.5k pages

Grace Pastel is a young girl who lives a cozy life in Jubilife city with her father, and for her, Pokemon battles are just something that she watches on television or online. Entertainment to be seen at a distance. After turning fifteen, she watched as young people her age got ready for their first journey across Sinnoh, all aiming to become the Champion. She usually scoffed at them, wondering how one could throw away a comfortable life in the city to risk their lives in the wild for an unobtainable goal. And yet when she was asked by her father to deliver a package to her mother living two towns over, something clicked in her brain.

Suddenly, she decided that she wanted to be the very best.

His Soul is Marching On to Another World; or, the John Brown Isekai

His Soul is Marching (...)
by The Cabbage Preacher
216 pages

They hung him for a traitor, themselves a traitorous crew,
But his soul is marching on.

A novel series (ongoing) and two independent novelettes featuring tales of  John Brown marching on to another world.

Fall of the Slave Harem (novel) & End of the Slave Empire (novelette)
Genre: High Fantasy

And heaven shall ring with anthems o’er the deed they mean to do,
For his soul is marching on. 

The land of Gemeinplatz is a land filled with fantastical creatures, adventurers looking to slay them, and heroes looking to distinguish themselves from the adventurers. The most common of these heroes are those who come from Earth, who enjoy a most leisurely time with their cheat skills. It’s a perfect world, the utopia of those who wish to become overpowered and get their own power fantasy, where even the most everyman of the everyman can pull themselves by their bootstraps and become a hero.

Yet, underneath this “Gemeinplatzer Dream” is a disgusting truth.

To satisfy the needs of heroes who can’t find function like a normal human being (which most of them can’t), the lucrative Gemeinplatz slave trade crushes the dreams and ruins the lives of hundreds every day. These slaves endlessly labor, in the harems of so-called heroes, at the mansions of the landowning “heroes”, and as rare materials for various dubious magical spells.

In a world that looks down at them as demi-human, where the ruling class has no incentive to end this profitable trade, in which their oppressors are overpowered as all hell, what hope is there for the slaves?

What hope is there, is named John Brown. This time, he’ll finish what he started.

Total Nekonomic Collapse (novelette) 
Genre: Contemporary

The catgirls have nothing to lose but their collars. They have a world to win.

Japan is an island by the sea filled with volcanoes, humans, and bipedal, humanoid cats. Known as the “cat paradise”, the nation boasts an impressive population of around nine million domestic catfolk with even more unaccounted-for strays. The “nekonomy” of Japan is the largest in the world; many would assume that such a large economy would trickle down to bring prosperity to the catfolk.

Prosperity for the common cat is nothing but a dream in a catpitalist system rife with fat-cats and nekonomic exploitation.

Cats, those that are “domestic” at least, are second-class citizens who can only freely travel with government-issued certification in the form of a bell around their neck. Those who don’t have a family are less than second-class citizens; strays (which compromise a majority of the cat population) are forced into workhouses and exploited as cheap labor. Those who cannot work in a profitable manner are kicked out of the workhouses and left to die on the harsh streets.

Despite these abysmal conditions, most people pay no mind to the horrors of the nekonomy. Many go about their day, enjoying cheap products manufactured from the blood and sweat of the catfolk.

Who do mind are the exploited catfolk themselves; a specter is haunting Japan – the specter of total nekonomic collapse, aided by another specter from a century past.

Updates for Fall of the Slave Harem every Sunday at 19:30 GMT.

5 Threads of Fate
by HWPerfidy
58 pages

Lin is a Weaver of Fate, someone who can see and weave the Threads of Fate.

She will do all she can to write a shining legacy, no matter what Fate has to say about it.

Mary Susan Oceanrunner and the Brutus Saint's Academy

Mary Susan Oceanrunner (...)
by MachineCapybara
385 pages

Join Mary Susan Oceanrunner on her quest to do... erm... something really important for the world... probably... Ahem. Long gone are the days when every hero could do whatever they wanted - now, we are civilised. We have government. Law. And proper forms.

Lots of proper forms.

(Final episode 25/07/2022. Also - beta readers far into the book rate the 'gore' degree as below 2/10, so the warning is a bit much)

Mary Susan Oceanrunner is a poor girl from the orphanage, who like many others before, has to fulfil her destiny. The prophecy had been told, and she is the only one who can make things right. Erm... probably. Anyway, she can't just go and kill monsters like in the middle ages. First, she must apply for the appropriate permissions, fill the forms, learn about the proper loot taxations... Hey, no one said adventuring would be easy, right?


No claim made by any character by the book should be treated as the author's or anyone else's opinion on any subject. Most likely, it was just the funniest thing the Author could think of at the time of writing.

This book contains many references to other works. It will probably be best enjoyed by individuals familiar with at least some of the following:

1) Computer games
2) Fantasy in general
3) Science fiction
4) Tabletop RPGs
5) Conspiracy theories
6) Corporation work life
7) Long forgotten prophecies uttered millennia ago in almost as forgotten languages under a starless night three dusks before the great convergence
8) Filling any government-mandated form
9) School
10) English

My ultimate goal is to make as many people experience something akin to joy while reading (think ~a bit louder exhale through the nose). It doesn't mean every scene will be funny or joyful because that's not how this stuff works. I can neither confirm nor deny having any other hidden agenda outside of that.

Borne of Desire

Borne of Desire
by Fuggmann
444 pages

A man given a new lease on life finds himself amongst pokemon. From his memories of pokemon as a whole, he assumes the power of pokemon and the world around him runs on convenient fate, rule of cool, and cheesy friendship just like any other anime. Unfortunately for everyone else, he's 100% right.

Takes place in a universe similar to but separate from Borne of Caution.

NOTE: If Borne of Caution is an attempt at a coherent and realistic look at pokemon, then, Borne of Desire is the opposite. It's all the mindless indulgence I DONT want in a serious story. It's a very seat-of-my-pants for-fun project and is written with no storyboard. Updates will be inconsistent and quality cannot be assured. Not to be taken too seriously.

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.


Beware of Chicken will be updated Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

Ryan "Quicksave" Romano is an eccentric adventurer with a strange power: he can create a save-point in time and redo his life whenever he dies. Arriving in New Rome, the glitzy capital of sin of a rebuilding Europe, he finds the city torn between mega-corporations, sponsored heroes, superpowered criminals, and true monsters. It's a time of chaos, where potions can grant the power to rule the world and dangers lurk everywhere. 

Ryan only sees different routes; and from Hero to Villain, he has to try them all. Only then will he achieve his perfect ending... no matter how many loops it takes.

The Perfect Run updates on Tuesday and Saturday. Cover by Vitaly S. Alexius

The Essence of Cultivation

The Essence of Cultivation (...)
by Agranulocytosis
445 pages

After experiencing five years of an adventurer's life, Arcanist Sylar Spellsight now spends his days catching up on developments in Essence Studies and teasing apart the functions of arcane trinkets and artifacts discovered by him and his companions throughout their time travelling the realms of Resham. An unexpected accident during the study of his latest subject of intrigue, however, displaces him across the Planes beyond what any known spell is capable of achieving.

Now finding himself lost in a realm rich in previously-limited Transcendental Essences, however, does he truly even want to return back to his old world? If nothing else, plagiarising - ahem, learning new spell structures by observing the local mages should prove entertaining. Sure, he will face new dangers in this foreign world, but they wouldn't be anything a fancy bit of spellwork couldn't solve.

Confused though he may be by this ‘cultivation’ business that the local mages practise and their lack of appreciation for the finer details of Essence manipulation, he nonetheless discovers that perhaps there are hidden depths to both their arts that each side has yet to fully realise.
