Ye Yanxiu was your typical gamer teen. He loved Glory like none other. On the opening of the twenty-fifth server of Glory, Ye Yanxiu stumbled upon an adventure he never imagined he would ever become a part of. AN: This is a short story for the TKA Fanfic contest. I hope you enjoy! The King's Avatar is a story by Butterfly Blue. Please check out his work, it's well worth your time! <3
“Ye…Xiu…?” Su Muqiu mumbled hoarsely, then coughed, blinking blearily at the man standing in shock above his bed. “…Where am I?” he finally managed to get out. Su Muqiu wakes up from a coma, confused, to Ye Qiu blaming himself for the accident. It's good that he has such good friends, who will stick with him so that together they can regain the glory that should have always been theirs.
Another season of the Glory Professional Alliance, and new gods have risen where the old had fell. Three contenders for the title of “Battle God”, Blue Rain’s “Wandering Swordsman”, Happy’s new team captain, “The Ghost in Broad Daylight”. The day before the 17th Server’s release, Blue River tells the newest guild leader some stories of the past. On Qingming the next year, Ye Qiu follows his brother to Hangzhou. Five years was enough to build new legacies, but the old would never be forgotten.
It's hard being so invested in something you no longer are a part of - Hey guys, now that contest is over, I will be taking this off Webnovel in the next few days, but this fic will still be available on my AO3 account under the same title and user. Thanks to all those who read, commented, or voted!
