Where is the comedy tag??? Like, i get this site is new and all, but you can't just forget to put a comedy tag! Why is there a werewolf tag and not a comedy tag!

CONGRATS WE HAVE COMEDY TAG NOW!

We all have to admit the times before us were unbelievable. Like, there was a war apparently? And citizens were drafted? And cocaine was in our sodas? And a man who has a salary of minimum wages could buy a house and support his family? Like, geez. But still, adults love to tell stories that definitely cannot be real. Stories like, like my father once told me he used to run 3 kilometres everyday after school to reach home within half an hour so that he coukd watch his favourite tv show. If you don't realise, that makes him faster than Ussain Bolt. Anyhow, this is a story of a similar man, a seline man. Perhaps your grandpa who is more than willing to tell you stories of his past.

'This fucking world…sigh…If only I could be isekai'd like those novels.'

A pipe dream. It was impossible in the real world, I knew that. A fiction was just a fiction after all.

But then a new virtual reality game named Chaos brought me hopes. I could finally escape this hell. However, my new life faced another huge obstacle.

'Damn lady luck never smiles upon me...'

Then a time skip happens and finally, my interesting life begins. 😁

Author's Note:

Beware: This story has a slow start. And I like to show character relationships and interactions among them more.

I'm a non-native, and this is my first English novel, therefore my writing pace is still slow and the use of words isn't that good yet.

Also, I might be editing a bit here and there from time to time, which shouldn't affect the story.

I'll be publishing every Sunday and Thursday for now.

A human begrudgingly joins forces with a mysterious shifter to protect his younger siblings from the vicious creatures that would harm them. 

***

Monty the python + Tory asleep in bed = nightmare fuel. Coyote shifters breaking into their house and a rescuer wearing Tory's bathrobe and his bed sheet around his waist? Officially the worst night ever. With no choice but to work with their mysterious rescuer - anything to get back to his family's danger-free life - all the while putting up with the shifter's infuriating nature and his teenage brother's matchmaking.

Yosef vowed to protect Justin's children. Simple. Had Salvatore not been the most stubborn human he ever encountered. As if maintaining some form of professionalism hadn't been a struggle enough, Yosef fails horribly after Tory saves him. Intense emotions conflict with his vow, his own insecurities and the nagging fears that won't shut it and leave him be. Literally. 

Will the pair of them be able to work together to unravel Justin's disappearance while fending off the shifters hired to stop them or will they be torn apart in the process?

Sage is a villain. Not by choice. It just sort of turned out that way, but hey, he's not complaining. Being bad is pretty cool, actually. And while by most people's standards his superpower is pretty lame - muting sound, of all things - he's found it pretty useful when robbing the rich. 

Most heroes ignore him. Except one. Lich, the necromancer. Sage didn't know how talking to the dead was considered heroic, but whatever. That's not the problem. The problem is that Lich apparently has a homing beacon locked on Sage specifically, and he keeps getting in Sage's way, despite most heroes not bothering to deal with the small-time villain committing petty theft.

It was annoying, but fine. Sage wasn't all that active in the villainy community anymore anyway. He had just turned thirty, and quite frankly, he was done with this shit. But still, he wanted to go out with a bang, so he planned his final heist: robbing the most powerful man in the city, the governor.

Except, when Sage broke into the governor's house all he found was the governor - dead as a doornail. What's worse is that for the first time in Sage's life, he was no longer invisible. He was found standing over the body, murder weapon in hand.

Now, the entire city of Fairview wants Sage dead, and the only person on earth who can clear his name is his very own necromancer nemesis. For how much they fight, Lich is surprisingly on board with helping Sage...

And so, the two embark on a quest to discover the real killer and clear Sage's name, but the trail leads them to discover some of Fairview's most well-kept and dangerous secrets...

  • Fantasy
  • LQBTQ+
  • Adult
  • Romance
  • Drama
  • Dark
  • Magic

A Steampunk/ Gaslamp Fantasy Romance set in the industrial revolution era of a fictional world.

 

Magic, mad science, multicultural ambience, and political intrigue all tightly laced up into one corset and powered by the steam of two romances - one F/M and one M/M.

 

Intended for mature audiences, 18+.

~~~*~~~

 

All creations carry a trace of the maker's ethereal energy, whether deliberately placed in the magical Artifacts made by the Alchemists, or unwittingly left in the handiwork of ordinary people.

 

Kazia can feel that energy, in both machines and people. She may not be able to do any of the grand magic other Alchemists can, but give her a damaged machine and she can trace its energy to the problem, and know precisely how to repair it. She does have one other ability. One far more dangerous. One she will never acknowledge, and will never use.

 

Fleeing her villainous father rather than becoming his pawn, Kazia finds a peaceful life on a farm in a neighboring country, where no one knows that she is the daughter of Prince Gorvan Devratha. But with war looming between her birth country of Valesk and her new home in Caedra, how long can that peaceful life last?

 

She can be safe in the Caedran capital, among the Queen's Alchemists, but will anyone there trust her – especially the handsome but embittered Lord Kelvaran Meratha, who suspects Kazia's father of murdering his family?

 

Abrizhen is Kazia's older brother. He does his best to play the role of the Prince's good son and heir, but when tasked with retrieving his wayward sister, he must return to the city he'd called home for many of his youthful years. There he'll have to reckon with his past, and finally choose between the life of a dutiful prince, or the welfare of his sister – and the rekindling of an old flame.

~~~*~~~

 

Content/ Mature warnings are on for:

 

Gore: Nothing terribly extreme. Some bleeding wounds and broken bits, but all limbs remain attached and all innards remain inward.

 

Sexual Content: It's not all smut all the time, but there is some. I aim for not vague but also not overly lewd. Smut chapters are labeled NSFW. Chapters with very brief smut or just some torrid making out or somesuch are labeled NSFW-ish. All on-screen depictions are consensual, but there are a few passing references to noncon having happened off-screen (not to any MCs).

 

Strong Language: One character really loves to swear, and could probably construct an entire monologue with just various inflections of the F word. So, yeah, that's on too.

 

Other CWs: Dark themes (abuse, trauma, ptsd, depression, unhealthy coping mechanisms). Mostly in discussions of past events, but there are a few scenes that may be troubling to some readers.
