Waking up in unfamiliar surroundings after a wild night of drinking is not exactly a novel experience, even for Rita, but when it appears her whole city has gone to hell while she was out cold, well, that has to be a first. And if she wasn't careful, possibly a last.

Now, somehow equipped with four times the number of legs she’s used to, Rita has to get to the bottom of what happened, figure out how to get back to her normal life and somehow survive in a ruined and post-apocalyptic hellscape that she was almost one hundred percent certain wasn't there yesterday.

Right, and stay sane. Which, judging from how pushy her inner voice was getting, might just be the biggest challenge of all…

Cairn is a prince who is already tired of ruling. Faced with an imminent coronation and an overbearing father, he wants nothing more than to drown his responsibilities in cheap liquor and poor decisions. With the help of his sister, he hatches a plan to escape the clutches of the throne once and for all. It all goes terribly wrong, and Cairn finds his priorities shifting in the face of unimaginable tragedy. The change of heart comes too late, however, and Cairn dies. He reawakens to find himself transported ten years in the past. He immediately begins to plan for the future, only to discover his killer has somehow followed him. To succeed, Cairn must unite the kingdom and discover the motivation of his killer, using as many tries as it takes.

I exhausted pretty much every time loop story ever written and decided to write my own. You'll see a few similarities here between this story and some existing stories, at least initially. There's a lot of inspiration drawn from both MoL and Re:Zero, though in terms of pathos and darkness, this story leans more towards the latter. Be warned, it is something of a slow burn. The main character will grow and become powerful, but a theme of this story is that power comes slowly and often at great cost.

Good old Reality… A Game of Life, Death and Evolution. The oldest pastime in Existence, it entertained its audience for aeons. But what should the Creators do, now that the majority of Players got bored and wandered off to try out more recent games with more features and fewer restrictions?

Time for a reset, to start anew, and regain its old popularity. 

What to do with all those mortal NPCs though? It would be quite a shame to just delete every single one of them, would it not?

This is the story of a stray mortal soul that got neither deleted nor recycled...
... but adopted?




I will add additional tags once they become relevant in later chapters.


- 'Reincarnation': this is a 'Continuous Reincarnation' story

- 'GameLit': light litRPG elements; no numbers, levels or experience points, though

- 'Genetically Engineered': in the sense of 'Guided Evolution'

- 'Gender Bender': Life#0 - undisclosed, human | Life#1 - female, non-human | Life#2 male, non-human

Join Milo as he bids farewell to his sister’s spare bedroom and says hello to the magical world of Altabar, where he’ll encounter scary monsters with lame names, meet new friends, and learn where not to pee.

This is a rewrite of the original of the same name. I do not recommend reading the original as the original is discontinued and this version is far superior.

Disclaimer: The "Strong Lead" tag means "Weak-to-Strong", and not immediately strong. If you're looking for an immediate Strong Lead, then this story isn't for you.

More than seventy-five years ago, the Second World War abruptly ended with the advent of the Adumbrae invasion. Piercing the veil between dimensions, these malevolent beings entered our world through possessing humans, turning them into monsters of destructions. Corebrings appeared shortly thereafter, saving humanity from certain annihilation. With their powers, these superhumans remained the protectors of our world to this day.

Twenty-three-year-old Erind Hartwell, a first-year law student at a university specialized in Adumbrae law enforcement, didn't care about any of that. She couldn't muster the effort to care about anything which didn't directly affect her. Incapable of guilt or remorse, she knew she was a psychopath, even if she never used that term to refer to herself. Out of consideration for other people, which everyone should be grateful for, she resolved to have a normal life as much as possible. "I wouldn’t bother the world as long as it didn't bother me" - this is the most of important of the self-imposed Rules that governed her life.

Fate, however, had other plans. Through some misunderstanding, Erind was nearly killed. At the brink of death, an entity came offering powers to save her. Left with no other choice, she accepted it.

Follow Erind's journey as she is inevitably dragged into the battle between Adumbrae and Corebrings, with not only her powers growing but also her control over her psychopathy unraveling.

But Izumi’s dream comes with a definite time limit, in the ever-changing shape of ruthless daemons, their shadow about to eclipse all life.

Witness this tragic tale of love blooming in the midst of blackest despair, as faithfully accounted by the bard Waramoti.

In a futuristic world of superheroes and supervillains, the ability to dream of another world doesn’t seem that applicable nor useful. But for Demund, who has recently sent off his best friend to the superhero training grounds—the Preliminary Islands—it was nothing but life-changing. For him, a rejuvenating vacation to a world of magic is now only a good night’s rest away. 

As Demund explores his new world, reality around him begins to change. How will he manage to balance their existences together?
