Born in the Maroon Hill near Ehlnofey, Arushta was just a starving youngling when picked up by a travelling con-man for his unique ability. For two pins of cooper, Arushta would tell your fortune.

Not long after Arushta realise he has too much for his own. He started giving away gold coins for the ones in need, for a piece of their soul.

A story of a vengeance that led to a dynasty of conflicts.
There was a legend of the man who changed the continent. The infamous Snow Prince, Aquil Blacklion, the bastard of the Second Prince of the Xarvid Empire. Having black hair and eyes while born on the 13th night of a Calamity, he was considered a bad omen of the Royal Family. After causing a scandal during his father's birthday, he and his mother was supposed to be executed. With his quick wits and natural instincts, he survived and escaped the Empire, vowing to avenge the injustice he and his mother received.
The fundamental forces of Nature are the only way to describe what exactly our Universe is.
Sadly, humans kind of stopped looking for new ones after discovering four of them. Well, apart from religous figures and charlatans (much of the same thing really) nobody really cares about 'unexplainable' truths as a means to any percievable end.
But such truths exist and it just means that science is not mature enough to explain them. In reality, there are more than four ‘fundamental’ forces of nature.
Surprisingly, Mathematics is needed to tap into their vast potential. Somewhat more surprisingly, ’belief’ or ‘faith’ is completely optional in any serious business concerning the very fabric of the universe.
But not everyone can handle this knowledge and remain sane.
One man challenged the scheme of things. He refused to accept what was for all practical purposes a cruel joke on sentient minds. A joke played by none other than the Universe itself.
How does one fight the world one lives in ? Destroy it ? That would lead to an inelegant solution.
Change it ? Now that is a much better prospect. But Change it how ?
People play MMORPGs for a variety of reasons. Some, play to escape their dull lives, most MMORPG protagonists play to support their loved ones by fighting inhuman odds to become popular and rich with their hardwork in a virtual universe as opposed to a real one. A lot of times, there is luck involved, specifically when getting items better than almost anyone else and getting so powerful that one is unbeatable. Quite touching really. But this story is different.
This is a story of someone who is happy with their real life. He does not want an escape into a better world, he is not socially awkward and is not bullied incessantly. His survival does not depend on farming monsters to earn money in real life. Xero played just for fun, at least in the beginning.
Independent of the reason why someone would choose to play an MMO, the fact that they have made a choice to do so matters. When having no real need to log in, why continue to play ?
The need for entertainment can only take one so far, what lies beyond is the realistion of hidden desires. Of doing actions that impact a lot of other people without suffering any real consequences. There is a sense of power in this fact and once that takes hold it never lets go.
THAT is the reason we make this choice, that is the reason we play the game. Everyone else wanted to be someone powerful like a 'Champion of Light' or the 'Harbinger of Doom'. But what happened to Xero did him turn into something that inspired terror or hatred but he did not choose it for those reasons. Sometimes, compassion can lead to a disaster and unbridled slaughter is the only way out.
But, what does one do when confronted with someone who is powerful yet indifferent of its effects ?
What does one do when faced with a Child of the Night ?
For starters, never provoke them...

WARNING: FIRST FIC I HAVE EVER WRITTEN.
An announcement caused a major panic... However, it was for good since it was a warning. Alien invasion happened, but everyone manage to defeat them by using arts of magic and superpowers taught and gained from the aliens who want peace. However, the aliens who wanted peace was killed by humans. No one knows why, but there is one thing they know they were cursed.
" You will take forms of a mythical creatures."
Long time ago, that people had found a way to seal their mythical forms. After many years, people forgotten that they have that curse.
A girl named Venus Celestine wanted to be an idol and a singer, she was great at singing and have talent on dancing, however she has one problem, she doesn't care what she look like. After many auditions, she passed one, but there was one mistake. She was put in an idol boy group?!
It's not easy for any of them. It never will be. But they'll have to get used to it. There's no way back to their world. The parts of their life they were so intertwined with, allowing them to connect and create, are gone. They can no longer use the magic of their world since they are not of that world anymore. All 7 million of them are no longer in that world, and instead, they are in ours, but we have no since disappeared.
Basics of this story, if the synopsis wasn't enough, (Their world was full of magic, they're transported to our world [present day], everyone loses their ability to use their magic, they have to live in our post-apocalypse world).\
This story is basically a collection of short stories in the same universe which will feature a new cast of characters and occasionally reoccurring ones. The chapter distribution will be based on how much I have to say on that story, but some will naturally be longer than others. The idea is that I give options for who the next story focuses on and people can vote on which story they want to read next.
God created the land where lives exist, and deities manipulate it, these existences worship them, existences that created them, that gives them all, but what created god and the deities? What created the universe?
What give permission to the life to exist?
And most important of all…
What happens if and existence, deprived of the worldly pleasures and the heavens mandates set foot in a world where Immortals walks in land, Saints deprived of any worldly lives among the mortals, and the weak fight with their hands and brain?
I will be adding genres along the way.
This work is for learn english and to enjoy myself.

It was supposed to be a dull rival villainess reincarnation story, seeing that nobody died and the world's fate was not at stake.
I, as the villainess, planned to just let the Heroine get whoever man she want and go on about my life. My heart won't be broken if I never befriended any of the capture target. I won't fall in love if I avoided them except for unavoidable events, fixed from the dating game's story. When all was said and done, I would return to my daily life and the others to theirs. Then the plot could be ended up with nobody getting hurt.
The 'game' hasn't ended.
It was merely a lighthearted initiation of something bigger. At least that's what she said.
Furthermore, this 'something bigger' has the world's at stake, and everybody possibly will die.

Come along on this heart-pounding, suprising, unforgiving adventure as we see what our protagonist, Kei, will choose when it matters most.
