202X - The Universe is proven to be a Simulation

An outbreak of nihilism and crime follows the discovery. It is not long before institutions and criminals develop a way to cheat our false reality and achieve impossible feats. They call this new tool Glitch and its uses vary: from editing the body with superhuman capacities to manipulating the elements and the Earth. Those who yield this new power are called Glitchers, and they are held as the Greek Heroes of the new times.

Edward Williams is a naïve anime-geek teenager from Chicago who dreams of making a difference in the world. He becomes a Glitcher when Thief Queen Elizabeth Shao, a legendary Glitcher herself, suffers a betrayal by the hands of her comrades and invades the boy’s body in order to cheat Death and plot her revenge.

Together, Edward and Thief Queen will build new bonds, live many misadventures and try not kill each other in an ever more chaotic America.


Cover art by the talented graphic designer ssddx. The entire novel's philosophical proposal is about finding meaning in a nihilistic world. This novel is a fun juvenalia take on the impact of the 'Death of God' and Descartes's skepticism. ;)

Nameless

To all Anime Lovers and Readers.

In a world where magic and advanced science exist, thanks to the man named Solomon, magic was unleashed and a new age had begun. As time went by, science had progressed at an astounding rate. However, as science evolved, so did magic. Magic had turned itself into many different types of energies. Energies that no other human could physically, mentally, magically surpass. That is the world Nameless lives in.

Nameless, a boy who was disowned by his parents at the age of five. Nobody cared about him really. When he arrived to the orphanage, he was already greeted and bullied by a few kids. Why? Simply because he had no magic. Where he lives, magic was everything, and if that person has no magic, he doesn't belong there. Day after day, Nameless continues his attempt on surviving in the orphanage. Until finally at the age of 12, he was adopted by a strange and huge man. From there on out Nameless's story began, and a whole new world is discovered. This is a story that will change Nameless's life forever.

Katra
by The Monk

Kardin lived a happy and good life. That is, till he was given a strange orb by an even stranger man, maybe even a demon. He watches as his village is burned, the villagers slaughtered and his friend devoured. He escapes into the Jungle of The Gods, a place of ancient ruins and deadly animals.

There, he is changed and his fate diverges from what should have been his death.

Now he must forge his own path in a world of great beauty and power, where death lurks around the corner and battles between veritable gods are fought. Where nations clash and ancient beings destory civilizations on whims.

But unseen cogs move under the surface, events transpiring beyond simple understanding. Strange and powerful items called Artifacts have started to reappear across the land of Auren, empowering their wielders far beyond what cultivation can give. The Traezar Empire and all of Auren are on the precipice of war and strange beings have started to emerge, all with an agenda of their own.

Chaos is brewing, and Kardin must survive it, all while trying to attain vengeance and understand his strange and anomalous Katra.

 

 

***Current Schedule***  

I am currently releasing 1 3,000(Sometimes I end up writing waaaay more) word chapter halfs every week. If there is not some sort of notice as to why I have vanished, then I'm probably dead. Let's hope I don't die then, eh? *Ducks under flying knife*

I own this cover, put my own blood, sweat and an hour of my time into it. Ahahaha!

This story is inspired (I stress this word, as because most of the story is different) by Will Wight’s Cradle. I highly recommend you read it! (Please for gods sake, if you have something to say, please do it in a curteous fashion. I don’t need any more maniacs flying at me and trying to stab me with sporks, I am already insane enough to fill that role.*Winks*)

**What is This Story?**

Think cultivation mashed with western fantasy, put into a pot to boil and then drunk while it's pipping hot. All the while a mad man(me) cackles insanely over the pot, stirring. It draws from xianxia lightly, which means no exasperated angry young masters. No “genuis” or “prodigy” MC, one that is not OP, or anything of the like. If you don’t like cultivation novels, this might still be up your alley. MC focuses on “Life Shaping”, see poll 2 for more Info

Warning! If your are squeamish, that gore and traumatizing content tag is there for a reason. I shall dive into both bloody and disturbing scenes and the questionable ethics of manipulating life, and some of it won’t be pretty. With a dose of realism added in.

I do add my own evi- I mean despic- no, sorry, interesting twists aswell. >:)

 Also, I HATE info dumps! *Steps out of the way of a charging semi* Still not dead!

Arc 1 (Kindling): Chapter 1 - 13

Arc 2 (Metempsychosis): Chapter 14 - 29

Arc 3 (???): Chapter 30 - ???

A disclaimer, I am new author and am still feeling out my limitations. This story is my hope of bettering my writing skills and to have fun.

Buckle up and enjoy the insane journey that is Katra. (Pronounced as cah-tra)

**COMPLETE NOVEL** 

The Realm: a parallel universe with 13 Kingdoms that only a select few from Earth can enter in their sleep. Marylea is one of those select few. When Marylea wakes up on her eighteenth birthday into a strange medieval-esque world where she can Shape things at will, she thinks it's pretty cool. That is, until people start vanishing into gold dust.

Ashling is the unpopular princess of the Kingdom of Aragonia, one of the 13 Kingdoms of the Realm. Doomed to marry a prince or a chancellor, and not the boy she's loved since she was a child, she is ready to accept her fate (or is she?) When Ashling's beloved Kingdom is in peril, she must team up with Marylea to find a way to stop their looming end. The burning question is: is it too late?

A story of adventure, friendship and star-crossed lovers, To This Kingdom Come is a COMPLETE young adult fantasy novel that will thrill and enthral.

*** Hi everyone! I hope you enjoy reading this novel as much as I enjoyed writing it. I would really appreciate feedback/constructive criticism. Thank you in advance! -Lydia ***

Wings of Sorrow

Wings of Sorrow
by Jharvey
HIATUS
415 pages

Tension permeates the city of Bleakridge as forces within its walls struggle for supremacy. Grim Thorne, the disinherited son of the Earl, is a fly caught in the web of power struggles between these forces. When Grim closes his eyes, he can still see the bodies piled high from the first day of occupation. The day he was branded a bastard in the southern fashion. The day his father let them.

Soldiers from the south bearing green cloaks and royal seals maintain order in the streets of Bleakridge, ensuring that the lifeblood of commerce continues to flow through the port city.

In the slums beyond the outer wall, the Sons of the Reaper lurk. Some call them heroes, others villains. But all fear them for their relentless devotion to the old ways and the freedom that entails.

In the castle above the city, resides the Earl of Bleakridge. The man who bent the knee and saved the lives of his people, if not their souls.

After twenty years of occupation, the tension is coming to a head and Grim has to choose. Sympathetic to the Sons, duty bound to his father, and forced into service to the king. He must rise above the brand on his neck and decide where his true loyalties lie.

But, after so long, it can be hard to tell who is deserving of loyalty. The King’s men who enforce order with a blood-soaked iron fist? The Sons who more resemble terrorists and crime lords than revolutionaries? Or the father who watches the bloodshed and does nothing? In the end, it is always the place of the young to bear the sins of the old.

“The Strength of the wind might Blow,
Swaying even the mightiest of Woods;
But be not mistaken the Trees are proud;
They bow to none”

 - Charon, High Druid

Faye, Daughter of Munn; an oddity in her Town of DewsBury. Frail and unable to stand being near her father’s forge.  She roamed the hills of the countryside and the halls of the Church. She would study the Wind and learn all she could know about Aeyr the Lord of the Wind, for she Wished with her whole heart to be part of his devoted. To serve him as a Paladin. 

The gods deemed to grant her wish, but not all was as she hoped. As she was thrown to another world far from her family and friends. In all her readings she had never heard of such occurrences beyond Fairy tales and Mythology. Yet here she was in a land unknown to her. With no weapons and no ability to note, Or so she thought.
