Typhoeus is a dragon. To the humans hunting him, he is nothing more than a monster. A mindless beast to be killed for levels and glory. To him, adventurers are not that much better.

Exiled from his home due to a trait on his status, and so very tired of killing adventurers on a near daily basis, Typhoeus decides to seek refuge hidden amongst the cowed remnants of humanity that populate this world. Armed with a millennium of mystical knowledge, and a powerful new skill that lets him take on the guise of a completely average human woman, the dragon must decide if he can be more than just the words on his status as he is flung headfirst into a life of romance and adventure.

This is his story.

Not everyone gets a soul.  The rise of industry and mechanization has sent the world's population booming upward, striving relentlessly for the fixed handful of souls that level armies and steer the fate of nations.  The remnants of a crumbled empire fight in a grinding, bloody war against their ancient enemy.

Not everyone gets a soul, but Michael must - for he is the scion of a lord, and the soulless cannot hold such a title.  For five years he has tried to tempt one of the souls freed by its vessel's death.  Five years of pain and failure, earning only his father's contempt.  At last, one more opportunity to earn his soul has come.

But not everyone gets a soul quite like his.


Updates weekly on Wednesdays.

Watchers

Watchers
by GamingWolf
STUB
34 pages

Humanity had left long ago, ascending like they had planned for so long. They left behind a universe full of wonders for their creations to explore, guided by a chosen one of their own. Kaylin was supposed to be that chosen—to shepherd the new races and set them on the right path before joining the rest of Humanity in Ascension. Fifteen millenia too late, she awakens to a universe no longer in need of her guidance, filled with machines that no longer seem to follow the rules Humanity had set for them.

Kelto had always liked his job. Translating ancient texts left behind by the Watchers brought him to the edges of known space, far away from the city planets of the core in which he had grown. When a routine expedition goes awry, Kelto abandons the long-dormant ruins, chasing after a truth he’d long assumed to be impossible. Those who had made the Watchers were not, as often assumed, extinct—and he’d found one.

Petey, a Golden Retriever from Earth with a heart equally golden, was euthanized in a pound after over twelve years of love to everyone he met.

Thankfully, a few very powerful people seem to agree that it seemed unfair, and gave him a chance to live life to the fullest in another world.

Oh, and they gave him just a few perks...
