Fed up with a world where science has made every fantasy a reality and people just don’t care about stories anymore, a young video game developer named Kai uses ancient black magic to transport himself into one of his games, titled: Choices.

Disturbed by his powerlessness on Earth, Kai makes sure to give himself the ability to change this new world as he sees fit, literally.

If you were ridiculously powerful, would you throw away all your morals and do whatever you wanted?
Would you find happiness? Would you find love? Or would you end up realizing that…

Absolute power is pretty depressing.

Note: The format for chapter titles is: “Overall_chapter_number POV_chapter_number: Chapter_title." Look at the POV chapter number to see who is narrating.

Nostos

Nostos
by Durrendal
HIATUS
8 pages

Nostos, the Greek word for homecoming. Here lie the stories of ordinary people, who have lost themselves, and their worlds. The lost souls may or may not find the north star to guide them home. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a series of one-shots that I wrote when I was in High School, which wasn't that far back. The stories each are self-contained. The writings here are experiments. So expect the style to be eclectic and oddball. Finally, the stories are short. Each one of them is like a Haiku, precisely worded. Do let me know how you guys liked the stuff. This is a off-project so updates will be infrequent. Let me know since the things are one-shots, each story is not gonna continue after 1 chapter. (Cover art: Random starry sky img search. Credit to whoever took the photo)

46 Year Old Syndrome

46 Year Old Syndrome
by Vanidor
HIATUS
258 pages

The daily Litrpg journal of a fairly average 46 year old man in a world where hundreds of thousands of people suddenly have a super power. Follow him as he learns skills, runs away a lot, suffers crippling headaches, avoids reading his titles, and tries to avoid breaking his body that didn't get enough calcium and vegetables. [Disclaimer 1: Despite the following, I will fix any typos pointed out. This is a writing exercise so chapters are mostly first drafts, otherwise I'd end up rewriting each chapter for a month or more with no real changes. My goals are a steady output by not using perfectionism as a procrastination method. I've already got laziness and additions to reading/games, I don't need a 3rd reason to procrastinate.] [Disclaimer 2: The main character is a more normalized version of me, with 170% less laziness installed, and a few buffs like greater courage. Other things like having a job are partially similar. No other characters are based on real people because most people I know are either too normal to be useful or too fucked in the head to be believable.]

COMPLETED

Ulf Hammargren transits from one world to another, from Sweden to Japan and from the peak of his career to his high school body. He must rebuild his life and live with memories that never were. He must find himself again, find friends again and maybe dare to find love again.

 

PG13

 

Observe that this is the first book in a series with book seven currently ongoing. The slice of life tag is there for a reason. The story is slow, and the characters unfold as the story is told. If you're looking for an action packed quick fix, then you have come to the wrong place.
