4.4Earth suffered apocalypse. All electronics over the world were destroyed. War and famine ravaged the lands. When humanity tried to rebuild, they discovered that most technology no longer worked. The laws that governed the world had changed! Steam technology rose in popularity after the apocalypse. Humanity entered a new golden age. Then, the seven nightmares attacked. Espers with strange powers appeared. Mutants took over most of the world. This was the beginning of the Mana Apocalypse! My name is Edward Tesla and I was born during the Mana Apocalypse. This is my story about trying to protect everything I care about in this living hell. My inventions will defeat the nightmares and save the world! Steam rifles, steam tanks, and steam mechs. My inventions will surpass them all! Extra Note from the author: Some of the early chapters are a bit rough and need rewritten. Most of the long-term fans come from Chapter 21 and up. I guarantee the story continues to improve from there as you continue reading. Political factions, wars, steam tech, mana mysteries, and more. Though the story starts in America, it also visits China, Europe, Africa, and other areas of the world later on. -------------------------------------------------- Note from author: This novel was the winner of the Steampunk writing contest.

In the spirit of the times, Elissa, a girl from the colonies, has seized this chance to bring glory to her home islands. She moves to the Imperial Capital City, Caelmere, to study in the Sefrayle Squire's Academy and become a Knight of the famed Order of Aefentid, a group of demon slayers and peacekeepers who have maintained order within the continent for over a millennia. But she will soon learn that that the knot that held the vast empire together was beginning to unravel.

And beneath all this chaos, a plot among the Princes of Hell has began its motions within the Empire. A story of anime school-time fun and the grim realities of imperialism is about to begin.
Once upon a time, in a small village far from the heart of the country... A certain baby boy was born. But unlike any other child, this boy held a rather peculiar characteristic: his eyes, they were red. Blood red. Something that should not have occured. As he grew up, instead of having being showered by love, he was bathed in hate. His mother died giving birth. His father passed away from an unknown disease when he was just a child. And as if it was not enough, soon, series of misfortunes followed and almost left his village in ruins. All these, they were blamed on him. All because of his eyes. All because he was born different. To top it off, on his own 15th birthday, it was decided that he’d be ‘sacrificed’ for the good of the village, without his own consent. Upon notification, he just agreed, and accepted his fate just like how he always does. But he never hated them. Never. Not for anything, ever. No matter how much they scorned and despised him, no matter how they punished him and mocked him, he merely faces all their insults and accepts whatever was thrown his way. He was considered an abomination, an abnormality, a disease. All the other villagers had feared him. But all he wanted was love and affection. He just wanted to be appreciated, too. Finally, the day of his supposed death has come. But suddenly a carriage, that which belongs personally to the Royal Queen, has come for him to take him away. “Marry me!”, ‘She’ said.

Against this tumultuous backdrop, a young, naive horology prodigy is plucked from poverty and obscurity by a terminally ill ruler. The road to damnation is paved with good intentions.

That was the day when his life completely changed.

Due to the fact that the contest has ended, this writing project is suspended until further notice. I kind of just wrote what I thought as I went along and therefore did not plan the plot that well. I will however get back to this novel when it interests me again. Thank you for all your support!
Lord Lucian Mircea was esteemed an oddity in the quaint town of Aster, England. He appeared too young for his years, and especially too wet-behind-the-ears to lead and earldom. Fascinated by rare and beautiful things, he fulfilled obscure favors for people of all classes in exchange for their most prized possession. For that he was known as "The Collector", for his mysterious lineage and equally mysterious methods of servitude. It wasn't until he decided to visit the heart of Aster that he came upon a curious sight: a little shop called _Pinocchio Antiquariato_ which housed the most beautiful antiques that Lucian had ever seen. A man who called himself the Toy Maker greeted him, willing to sell the lord anything in the store... except one. A doll unlike anything Lucian had ever seen. Eager to purchase the doll by any means, the Toy Maker decided to offer him a deal: sign a contract that the lord couldn't read. Suspicious yet adamant at acquiring the doll, Lucian reluctantly signs the contract. But upon returning to his manor in uphill Astershire, the doll came to life, calling herself "Celeste"... and along with her awakening, his quiet life as an earl was shaken by random monster attacks and other "Collectors" looking for "The Missing Piece." Lucian knew no missing pieces, but he was determined to find the damned Toy Maker and give him a piece of his mind. And preferably get a refund.
