CORE: The Volcanic Dungeon

CORE: The Volcanic Dungeon
ONGOING
321 pages

Other Tags: Evolution | Kingdom Building

A dragon, severely injured from the wounds she suffered after being ambushed, returned home to the center of a volcano. Her injuries exposed the vast amount of aether within her which flowed out like blood from an open wound. All of this energy found its way into an ordinary rock ā€“ into me. Her aether turned me into a dungeon core that would convert the entire volcano and beyond into my territory, and that is only the beginning of my many legends.

This is a story about how I turned from a rock into a dungeon core and, eventually, into the most powerful being alive. Well, some might debate that last part, but they would be wrong. Probably. Yeah, definitely. Of course Iā€™m the best!

The thief was confident that it would be another heist like any other. Steal the mark, get paid, retire, gamble away any money not spent at brothels, and come out of retirement. Again. That was how it was supposed to go. Only, the woman he was stealing from was a noble vampire, and he wasn't expecting to get killed and reincarnated as a puppy. Now, left in the underground dungeon floors of the city's tower, the infamous thief must adapt to his four-legged and fluffier life and quickly if he doesn't want to get turned into a snack by monsters several times his size.

To make matters even more difficult for him, he finds himself bound by a curse to not only hunt and devour the strong but to evolve and become his killer's cerberus. Though, none of these struggles are as difficult as the itch behind his ear that just won't go away.

The True Endgame

The True Endgame
ONGOING
2.1k pages

What defines endgame content? Is it raiding epic dungeons to take down the strongest bosses there are, or is it facing off against other players to climb the ladder and become the top PvPer? Is endgame content gathering materials and crafting the strongest and most exotic equipment that there is, or is it all about playing the market and amassing more wealth than everybody else? Some people even argue that fashion and minigames are endgame content!

Ryouta has already done all of that. Having spent most of his life playing MMO after MMO, he now finds himself wanting to live a virtual life that is far more relaxed and casual than what he is known for.

To Ryouta, the true endgame is fishing.


Updates at 6pm EST, Mon-Fri.

Whether it be from the foreign invaders who have taken or slain all in their path, or an empire of man that has crushed all resistance and exterminated anybody not deemed worthy, very little of humanity is left free. Those who are fortunate enough to consider themselves free fight until their last to try and make the world a better place for their families, friends, and the future.

The draft requires all able-bodied men and women to serve time in the military when they are of age. Some even enlist before they are adults in hopes of avenging the lost. Many wish to pilot versatile strike units, but only a few prove able to do so. These giant machines resemble human form and require only the best of pilots. Now, an ace pilot finds himself reassigned to instructing. He will do whatever it takes to ensure a brighter future for his daughter, whether that means fighting on the front lines as a VSU pilot or passing on his skills to the next generation of pilots.


Author's Note: This story is not for those who cannot handle foul language. The cover is temporary pending on how successful this story is. You should expect there to be anime / light novel themes in this story, and while I'm not going to tag it as slice of life, there will be many slice of life scenes as I like to place a heavy emphasis on character interactions, relationships, and dialogue. Furthermore, the first major arc of the story takes place instructing new cadets on-base. There will not be much mecha action in the beginning. However, when we do get to the mecha action, you can expect plenty of it. Also, it's important to keep in mind that this is not meant to be a realistic depiction of how a military works.

Inspired By: Muv-Luv Alternative, Macross, Gundam, Space Battleship Yamato, Battlestar Galactica, and Valkyria Chronicles

Disclaimer: This story is intended for adult audiences. You should not read this if you are under the age of eighteen.

There are those who enjoy a more vanilla side of life, and then there are those who are so utterly addicted to the strange and perverse that every day is a chore because they are simply human. Damian Fletcher is one such man. Ever since he was a teenager and was visiting sites much too mature for his age, he has been obsessed with all things non-human. However, there is a problem.

Damian not only has many bizarre tastes, but he prioritizes consensual versions of his interests above all else. Alas, very little of such content is available.

But, now he has the chance to change all of that ā€“ to become what he has always wanted to become: a monster. Taken from Earth and given the chance to live a new life in a world of fantasy obeying the laws of an RPG-esque system, it is Damian's goal to truly become a monster and to leave his boringly-human body behind. He wants to have lots of consensual fun as a monster, too.


Author's Note: Please read the post-chapter note on the first chapter for further content warnings and information.

Monday Monster Girls

Monday Monster Girls is a collection of short stories revolving around the daily lives of various relationships featuring monster girls. If you just want to read some laidback, cute romance involving monster girls then give this story a try! If you are looking for an epic, frequently-updating, super long story full of action and drama then this is not the story for you. This is straight up slice of life and romance with no overall plot, new characters almost every single week (some relationships may be revisited in the future), and it is not meant to be a serious collection of stories in any way.

Heavily inspired by works such as Tsurezure Children and Jingai no Yome to Icha Icha suru - Anthology Comic

As of 3/30/18, this story is temporarily complete until I revise it in the future. Also, you really shouldn't read this.

Are those who spare the lives of monsters weak, or are they kind? Does it take more strength to let an opponent live, or to extinguish the flame of life? For those born in Tartha, the answer is to mercilessly kill that which poses a threat or may grow to become one. Children who fail the rite to prove their worth as hunters in this merciless land are exiled.

A nameless boy travels north. Having failed his rite, he was given the mark of exile and sent north to survive on his own. That is his punishment for not living up to the expectations of his culture. There is no room in the tribes of Tartha for a failed hunter that would rather care for a monster than kill it.

He knows nothing of the lands beyond Tartha, but he soon discovers there is more cruelty to the world than simply being abandoned by his family and tribe. He discovers that the world he lives in is one where kind people are horribly treated for no apparent reason other than because somebody else wishes to assert their dominance over them.

Is that all there is to this world? Suffering and cruelty? 

He may not know the answers to these questions, but he does know one thing: he must survive.

Author's Note: This story deals with some pretty dark themes very early on, such as the main character being a victim of: slavery, rape, mental and physical abuse, grooming, torture, and being forced to kill. Does that sound too edgy or dark for you? Then you probably shouldn't read this. Furthermore, there is a heavy psychological element involved that will most likely not make sense and just look like bad writing unless you read far enough. There are several moments earlier on that sound like they don't make sense until you have all the pieces to the puzzle. However, I will be the first one to admit that I am very inexperienced at writing anything serious and psychological like this. It is very much an amateur work in comparison to what I usually write. I hope that you can still enjoy it if you choose to read it!
