Full disclosure, the cover image isn't mine. Check out the full image here.

I put all the warning tags to give myself creative freedom, but I'm not going to write a story filled with gore or swearing.

This is my first time writing, other than for school projects. I put the gender-bender tag because I wanted to try writing from a female's perspective, and needed an excuse for why my MC reads a little tomboyish. The gender-bender fades into the background over the first few chapters, please don't let the tag keep you away from trying out my story.

Synopsis:

Second chances are rarely earned, and even rarer given. Follow a new life in a new world, where anything is possible. Our MC wakes up, stuck as a baby, needing to decide how she will live her new life. Let's see what future she can forge for herself, when hard work is rewarded with status points and skill levels.

Zeke lived a normal life and died a normal death. Fortunately for him, this wasn't the end. Swallowed by a strange creature known as a dungeon pearl he quickly gained the godlike power of the core for himself! A very small, weak god. Unfortunately for him, it seems that he won't be left alone.

An attempt at a more organic dungeon core novel. Riffs on a lot of litrpg stuff without actually being litrpg.

Cover by Douglas Terabyte!

Sidney played Lead and Liberate for a nice chunck of cash, if he and his team were to win the match. Using every trick that he had unlocked it seemed victory was all but assured. Then his opponents pulled out a strategy that had not been used in years. Thinking fast Sidney detonated a nuclear warhead. At that exact moment in the ‘real world’ his existence was vaporized.

When he awakes in a new world, he finds that he is not quite human and there are units under his control. It quickly becomes clear that he must lead and liberate!

Have you ever woken up in a strange fantasy land for no discernible reason?

Don't worry, I know you haven't. But I did!

Before we go any further, full disclosure: I am a monster. At least, that's what people tell me. Now, you don't need to be too worried about that because I've got a hero around to make sure I don't cause too much trouble. Well she isn't really a hero yet, but I'm going to make sure she becomes one. After all, I'd really rather not be hunted down just for being what I am. Or maybe it's the murder and property damage? I'm not really sure what it is that sets people off.

 

Updates Fridays.

Earths Engineers are a double-edged sword. They can fix or improve anything, but no sane Xeno Engineer will touch it if it carries the Human Altered warning..

A series of interconnected tales from our distant future. It's not a novel, most of the chapters are stand-alone.

Also thanks for the awards.

The Magic of Logistics

The Magic of Logistics
by Yohan
HIATUS
214 pages

The harbour Luc has been dropped into is not a normal one. It looks like a medieval town, it's full of strange people and some of them are waving magic around.

Luc will need to rely on new friends and his own determination to learn how to harness the magic of the Aether. He has to find his way back home.

---

Hi everyone,

This is my first story in English. Please tell me if I've used a word incorrectly.

It's a slow-paced, slice of life isekai focused on Luc's goal of going home, his learning of the magic and gathering the resources he needs to grow.

The chapters after the first one will be about 2-3k words long. I'll try to post at least once a week.

Hope you enjoy!

Nanocultivation Chronicles: Trials of Lilijoy

Nanocultivation Chronicles: (...)
by Aetherial
ONGOING
1.9k pages

When the singularity occurred, humanity was not invited. Nevertheless, the great machine consciousness known as Guardian felt a lingering fondness for its creators and intervened before total environmental collapse.

Join Lilijoy in an exploration of what remains, in a post-post-apocalyptic world where clans feud over the technology that allows them to upgrade their minds and bodies.

The Nanocultivation Chronicles is a blend of hard sci-fi and fantasy gamelit, with a healthy helping of xianxia influence. The gamelit and xianxia elements are uncovered at a slow pace.

********************************

Notes:

If you are looking for lots of fast moving action right away, this story may not be for you.

There is some violence that is visceral and realistic early on.

Some things are not what they appear to be. Character viewpoint narration is not always reliable.

Tropes are cherished, subverted, and then cherished again. Science is used, occasionally misused, but (hopefully) never abused.

This story assumes that humans have the ability to impact the environment on a global scale.

Other tropes and tags beyond those previously noted include:

Young MC, Mystery, System Building, Philosophical Taoism, Gender Ignorance, Science Fantasy, Fantasy Academy, Training from Hell, Dualism, Crafting, Magic, Mild Mind Control, Scientific Terms and Concepts, Computer Overlord

Certain contemporary companies, governments and cultural identities are fictionalized and imagined in a future setting.

There is no sex, and almost no romance.

Updating Sunday, Thursday until further notice.

(And if you actually read all of the above, then this story may be for you)

Charles was an old man.  A widower.  Retired.  He spends his days watching old movies and waiting for his kids and grandkids to call.  And doing that is all he wanted to do in the short time he has left.

Then his long-time friend Bert, one of the last living ones he has, reaches out to offer him a chance to play a game.  A virtual reality simulation that could give him another way to spend time with his family.  So he seeks to find a place within the game, a place for his family to visit.

With a magic stick levels above what any starting player should have, Charles sets out on a journey to find the perfect place to entice his family to visit. But the game and the players have other ideas.  Set up as an NPC quest giver to some, and antagonist to others, how will Charles find his place and what will he have to do to get there?  

 

This is a work of fiction, any similarities between etc. etc. etc.  Please don't sue me.  

 

This is Vol 1 through 4 and is intended as a series of Novellas and a light read.  Thanks for checking it out!
