The story is set in the fictional city of Europa, in Central Europe, the last city left after a nuclear war that made most of the Earth uninhabitable and woke up dragons - prehistorical creatures that caused an mass outbreak of a lethal disease that decimated the population and turned the survivors into scale-covered, violent mutants that rebel against the government. Sophie, a young doctor working for her boss Amanda Solarin in a medical facility, accidentally meets an elderly woman, Emma, who miraculously recovered from the dragon plague, and whose blood could be the key to a vaccine. Saving Emma from government persecution, Sophie goes on the run with her. Meanwhile, Erik Persson, a police officer, sets out to track Sophie and Emma, while suspecting that a mole might be hiding in the ranks of the police. Sophie and Emma hide in the slums and after almost getting caught by the police several times they finally fall in the hands of the rebels; in her captivity, Sophie discovers that the plague survivors are not as irrational and violent as the press portrays them and agrees to work with them to develop a vaccine. She also discovers that some of the survivors have the ability to communicate telepathically with a dragon. She meets the General, the leader of the rebels, whose name is Cain, and despite her fear for his terrifying looks and enigmatic personality, she is strangely attracted to him.

"Stay away from him, Kyun!" Kyun I was born by the hand of a man, a mad man who wants to equal the Gods. The only man I've been able to meet up to that day. "Dies for us Asao." Asao The sky, the clouds, the sun, the wind, the rain... Nature, society, life... One day maybe I experienced them but I don't remember. No doubt that pain, suffering, fear and loneliness have taken their place in my memories. I, Wei Cheng, sixth son of the great Wei family. I live to protect my tormentors. "Deliver your people Wei." Cheng When three completely different stories come together into one.
A strong and talented soul was made and as usual for newly created souls, went to reincarnate. This soul was someone who was preordained to benefit society in their world, in some way. As a world renowned doctor, a genius pianist and artist, a natural actor, a righteous and compassionate general, an assassin who only kills evil, and a hacker who exposed hidden crimes and gave justice to their victims, etc. But something unknown messed with his fate. The doctor created a zombie virus to destroy the world, the pianist was driven insane, the actor was killed earlier than expected and was hated as a coward, the general became a mafia lord who killed people without blinking, the assassin was molded into an emotionless doll who only knew to do as ordered, and the hacker only cared about entertaining himself even if he toyed people to death. All of them had unexpectedly become a villain. A system who kept the multiverse in check wanted to stop him from continuing like this and help him, but it was already too late. His soul had splintered into six parts from his six miserable lives. So the system decided to let him experience happiness in different worlds to fix and fuse him back together. The system was satisfied with their choice until they saw... "Why are they becoming the villain again!?"

Dizclay'mar: ***WARNING*** This is not canon and it shouldn't be and I don't own the 40k series. I just thought I could make a 40k fanfic that many people (in the 40k community) both hate and love very much! and that is an eldar-guardsman relationship and this is an unofficial work, not endorse by Games Workshop. So I give to you... A guardsman's love. There is also some "Offbrand" if you know what I'm saying ;), but it will not be much since I am more focused on the story than the actual fluff but it will be spicy! ;) Also this would only be a short story so don't expect a lot of chapters in this and I made a mistake by not noticing that it was now a novel so even though it say original just know its still a fanfic -_-. Enjoy!
I never really liked Godzilla 1998 as a godzilla film, don't get me wrong, as a monster flick I would've liked it, but not as a Godzilla film. So, I wanted to see if I could've made a story, better then the what I've seen. so this will be based off multiple films, with it being heavily inspired by, Gojira 1954, and cloverfield, to name a few. hope you enjoy this little thing I'm posting here.
Earth 2.0 was found in 1995, almost over 160 exo-planets has been found since then. This new planet, which is only about five times bigger than Earth, is the smallest exo-planet ever found orbiting a star. By the year 2030, life and civilization has advanced enough to travel at light speed in space, and explore other more outer planets besides just sending probes and satellites to take pictures. For the first time a ship with a manned crew has been assigned to explore planet OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb, or Earth 2.0 as named by NASA's youngest scientist and co-leader of the manned mission to this new Earth, Marie Antonia. Probes and bots have all been sent to explore this Earth, and have brought back positive signs of humans being able to possibly live on this new Earth. Earth 2. 0 is around 25 000 light-years away from Earth, close to the center of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It has an orbital period of 10 years and is about three times as far from its parent star as Earth is from our Sun. First believed that this new planet would be cold, probes proved NASA scientist wrong. Images brought back shows signs of active water, huge masses of water and land all over the planet, as well as signs of planets and vegetation. However, no sign of animals or anything living have been spotted yet. It's believed that this planet has not yet evolved enough to manifest life on it's own. Excitement brought the NASA scientist to a halt when they arrived on the planet to find out they were wrong, dead wrong. Now only does the planet hold living life, but the life the planet holds is bigger and stronger than any human on Earth. The spaceship UNA-1 sparked a leak right as they entered near Earth 2.0, and needed an emergency landing. The crew, holding 400 frozen humans in its cargo hold, are all aware now that life upon Earth 2.0 would be way different and that the could be risking the lives of 400 frozen humans, landed. The crew consists of ten people, four crew letting leaders, four control Engineers, and two citizens: an army soldier and his daughter who were accidentally unfrozen by the crew's co. captain John. S. Reginald. Sargent Henry Smith has been an soldier in the U.S. Army for ten years, and now accompanies the UNA-1 crew as part of an United States program to send humans to this new Earth. The first 400 people are supposed to set up a colony and start preparing for more people to join them on Earth 2.0. Current Earth is experiencing major catastrophes: Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions, huge tsunamis, and over 9.7% of the world is now under water. 3% of humans left on Earth await in strong holds either in the Ocean, or above the ocean were little land is left for news that they can now travel to Earth 2.0 and make it their new home. Sargent Henry Smith agreed to go through this program for one reason only: his daughter Scarlet. Scarlet is a sixteen year old girl who's experienced her whole life on a chaotic Earth. Henry hopes to provide a new place to live for his only daughter, and the rest of humanity that still lives. Watch as the Crew embarks on a new journey, to Earth 2.0 and they difficulties they face with the life that has already claimed the Earth. Will it be a battle for the residence already their? Will the humans chase them away, or worse, will they become slaves to this alien race upon the new planet?
Brought to an unknown ship in the middle of space orbiting an unknown planet ten times the size of Earth. Years or even days pass before he could even meet any sort of civilization. In a galaxy where some of the logic from his own galaxy does not apply, he will attempt to survive. This is also on Royal Road.
