(Cover by Darkstar Dust) This is a story I worked on ages ago that has been refined and edited by adding foreshadowing to events while also simplifying the power system better than before. This story can be considered a prequel to An Adventure Beyond Greatness as it takes place years prior to the events of that story. Short Synopsis: After retiring from the battlefield, my life became empty and lifeless. The regrets of my past haunt me in my sleep. Then a change occurred, a King from another world summoned me to fight for his kingdom, but I died even before I could give him my answer. Now, after a fake God allowed me to reincarnate (albeit imperfectly) with my memories intact, into a world filled with magic and swords. Long Synopsis: This is about a flawed protagonist who only knew to rely on others and not socialise who gets a second chance to change himself in order to live the life he aimed for in his past life. The narrator isn’t exactly trustworthy since it is purely in his bias perspective while other perspectives given by others fill in the blanks that he either leaves out or twists to suit the situation. The story itself can be considered a parody of Isekai’s classic tropes which are given a sense of reality as time goes by. As there exists no ‘Demon Lord’, there is also no black and white, only characters opinions and counter-opinions throughout the story.
After escaping North Korea, Ji-Ah somehow ends up in the states, working in a small, quiet flowershop thanks to one of the employees working there. Except that her new boss has a few loose screws, bridges that refuse to burn, a past associate with unfinished business, parents who will stop at nothing for their daughter, and worst of all: North Korea is out to bring her back; dead, or alive. I’m new to writing so comments and criticism are appreciated. English is my second language, so I apologize if there are any mistakes. I’m just a twelve-year-old with dreams, all right?
"Do you know that stars die?" I asked, breaking the silence. I didn't know where the question came from, but that's the only thing that came in mind. "Yeah," he answered. "And some stars we see in the sky may be already dead. But they're so far away that their afterglow can still be seen above. Some of them may seem glowing but they're actually dead." We all have a little gallery of photographic memories inside our hearts. An exhibit of things we could never forget through our short moments in time. Some were so good, we held it like they were the best part of our lives while some were things we desperately ran away from － they hunted us, and killed our hopes. The beginning of my life ended on my tenth birthday, the day when my childhood was stolen away from me. I longed to run away from that nightmare that held me tightly in my neck and made helpless under its grasp. Going to college had become my final chance to run away. On my seventeenth birthday, after enrolling at a university, my life took another shift. I met a man who showed me the glimmer of hope I always wanted to see. And this was our story. A narration of first love, bittersweet and worthwhile.

Nobody remembers why the feuds started. Initially, The Trinity had been undivided, a group of 3 peace-loving galaxies who wished to make peace, not war. That didn't work. The Trinity was shaking at its foundations. In every society, there are two kinds of people; those who seek power, and those who seek to serve those in power. Unfortunately for those who ran The Trinity, there were many of the former, and more of the latter prepared to support them. And so, The Trinity shattered, and all three galaxies were locked in aeons of war and bloodshed, with no clear end and no clear peace. Till the two arose. Hyperium and Obsidious. Two beings that could not have been more different, yet could not have been more similar. The former, claiming to be of royal descent, had seized his power by rallying the nobles, dissatisfied with the past taxations of The Trinity that stole their wealth, and wanted their royal powers and freedoms back. The latter, a dark, hardened sociopath who spent his former years as a slave, mercenary and a range of other jobs only a reject of society would take, who rallied those with a lust for destruction as he did. The two parties went on to dominate their chosen territories, causing bloodshed, loss, anguish, and destruction. It was a common rumor that one day these two would clash, only one emerging the victor to rule the ruined, charred, scarred remnants of The Trinity that drifted without purpose in space. This is the story of that conflict. This is the story of Obsidious. This is the story of the fallen warlord who sought redemption.

Residing In a lush and verdant mountain range called Adalhisa were not-so-peaceful fairies in conflict with one another. Northern and Southern Peaks were in a silent war for centuries. Both their borders were heavily guarded. Southern Peaks frequently send assassins to hunt the royalties of Northern Peaks but only managed to kill a few guards up to the present. When it comes to power, Northern Peaks is at its best. Getting a bit desperate, Southern Peaks leaders decided to send their offspring to slay the royalties of Northern Peaks. Asuren Nightgloom is one of those offspring. Living for a hundred years and having killed a handful of powerful fairies, he was one of the best choices. His target was a princess from the wind realm.

When these two experienced fairies meet, will Asuren be able to triumph where other assassins before him had failed, or will Thea be able to successfully defend herself as she did against all the assassins sent to slay her?
"I trusted you," Mirha said in a voice barely above a whisper, trying her best to keep tears from falling down her cheeks, trying and failing. Hadi paused for an entire second.
