4.83‘Worlds’ - an intriguing word, isn't it?. Some believe that there exists only one world, while others believe that parallel worlds exist. But... What if both of those assumptions are merely fictional? What if there are not one, not two, but hundreds of thousands of worlds which are conquered by 'Chosen Ones' who get a world conquering system? "Hey Pluto!? I thought I was the only one who's currently alive with a system to colonize worlds!", said Harry while rubbing his eyes furiously, hoping that the ranking he was seeing was just a fragment of his imagination.

4.78"Magic is dangerous for those who weren't born with it." Then came a certain damsel of destruction - overpowered even, though born as an ordinary human. Through a special type of magic, she takes form of various mythical beings - A slaying queen. An eight-tailed ghoulish monster. A scythe-wielding enthraller. A red-eyed demonness. Such and more. But then again, great power has to come with a price. --- Story Synopsis --- If Angelica "Eli" Claes were to tell what kind of role she'd most likely have if she's inside a book, she'd definitely be a mere backdrop character - especially with her grey hair, thick glasses, nerdy mien, introverted nature, and her plain appearance overall. But then again, this bookworm would rather just read and be the audience instead of filling in the shoes of a heroine that bores people to death - Or so she hoped. Never had she imagined that she'd end up taking the villainess route one day, and it's all because of a certain antagonist in a novel she'd been reading - Empress Venus, a dreaded ruler who fell on her own blade. Soon, Eli finds herself in a love-and-hate relationship with this group of gentlemen who're just too perfect to be considered 'non-fiction', throwing all her attempts to avoid becoming the center-of-attention out of the window. They also turn out to be the esteemed Student Council and the most popular guys at school, yet for an organization that protects peace and order, they sure are eager to wage war against her. Enter the perfect Student Council President who's all smiles and sparkles, the charming and blithesome Vice President, the gallant Public Information Officer known for being a social butterfly, the academy chairman's heir who strives to surpass his elder brother, and a certain classmate of hers sought by every Sports Club at school yet chose to work as a library assistant instead. Little did the bookworm know that these people aren't really who they appear to be. --- An excerpt --- Never did he imagine what would come into the view the moment he reached her. "Eli...?" No response. Eli just remained silent and unmoving, her dainty frame sprawled all over the cold surface. That's also when he suddenly caught sight of all the wounds and bruises on her arms. Her jogging pants are ripped, her hair's unkempt, and everything else just screams that something bad did happen. His chest can't stop recoiling and churning as he continues eyeing her delibitated state, and just imagining what had probably happened set everything in him ablaze. He is more than furious or infuriated. He's not just tremendously enranged. As he wrapped his arms around her frigid cold body, he has finally become sure of what kind of scorching emotion he's feeling right now - it's vengeful and murderous. He buries his face in her neck in an attempt to calm himself down, trying to focus on the fact that she's alive at the very least. But even then, all he thought of was the surging intensity of his seething wrath. Everyone just kept coming after her, and now, he's left with no choice but to come after those who dared lay a finger on her - in his own ruthless way, that is. --- This is where a bookworm's love for reading, fused with a little touch of magic, gives birth to a half-heroine and half-villainess protagonist. - Weak-to-strong female lead - Two Minds in One Body - Reverse Harem but not off-the-bat - Heroes/Villains with a cause - Highschool, Family and Royalty Drama - Not Your Ordinary Transmigration/Reincarnation Story (Want a little sneak peek on our reverse harem / SOTVH cast?

And inflicted a terrible balance upon the plains and brought chaos to Chiji. From this, opposition rises and plots. And so, the people forget the good deeds of a few power wielders.

However, out from these devastating times, a Sorceress will bloom and slowly bring balance to this world. ---- o ---- They were married through the imperial edict, and she expected much from it. However, on their wedding night… "In fairness, I'll be honest with you. I don't like you. I prefer to marry someone I choose. From this day forth, you're to live in Anjing Pavilion" said Lei Ming with no reservations. She was aggrieved to be disregarded and unfairly discarded. "Wait!" shouted Xinyi.

"I'm grateful for sending me there, Lord husband, but please don't miss sending my allowance and I promise I will not show up and bother you," said Xinyi and bowed piously. "The heck, this woman is totally shameless." Xinyi watched Lei Ming's back as he walked away. As he was out of earshot, she gave a careless smile and rested her palms on her waist. "This is totally unexpected. What a farce of a marriage. So what? I don't care too..." she said as she suddenly jumped and swirled around in glee. But… an unexpected encounter under the moonlight changed everything. Most of all, when he discovered he was meant to protect his wife. ----- o ----- TAKE NOTE: 1.)
