Hooray for new story! (*wonders if commenting about gunslinger android helped bump up the poll*) Anyway, this one have a slightly different tone from the usual of my stories, being a bit more serious than usual. (That’s as far as midway through chapter 4. Plan on adding funny characters by then.) That said, onto disclaimers and stuff!
DISCLAIMER. MAN TO WOMAN GENDER BENDER PLAYED HALF SERIOUSLY, HALF FOR PLOT REASONS, AND HALF BECAUSE I SEEM TO BE UNABLE TO WRITE ABOUT POWERFUL MAIN MALE CHARACTERS.
Genres: Sci-fi, comedy (eventually), Slice-of-life (maybe), Action, adventure, game systems (This is the one that will eventually make me hate myself.)
Summary: MC is a member of a high level guild in a Event Horizon Online, a sci-fi Full-immersion-VRMMO, who just defeated the game’s last boss. Deciding to try their luck at the new semi-hardcore server, the guild decide to start over again. However, an accident led by plot happens, and MC dies while inside his gaming rig. This is, of course, only the beginning. (Note: I just noticed, but i don’t think i ever gave the MC’s real name… Oh well. Casualty of distratio*cough*war. Casualty of war…)
AUTHOR’S WARNING: Not so old story this time. On the other hand, there’s a few things i should probably explain. Story is a reincarnated-into-game world of kinds which i do understand, is not for everyone’s tastes, though i do feel like i added a small twist… (which will probably only ever be revealed much later but… Oh well… ). For those who came to this site via a link from Crashed into Fantasy, yes, this story was based on that, but I didn’t take the same route. Finally, since i avoided just info-dumping too much, if there’s any doubt about systems/how stuff works, do say so in the comments and i’ll try to explain them in the most spoiler-free way.
Now, without further ado, here’s the story!
I had done it. By the time I watched the massive robot falling to its knees before me and stabbing the massive shining sword into the ground, in one last attempt to stand back up, it tried to stretch its left leg, but it exploded into pieces, leading to the machine falling flat onto the ground with way too much force for its unshielded body, destroying the main body and revealing a defenseless core.
For a good minute, there was silence as everyone slowly realized the meaning of this scene before us, the massive robot entered a repeated animation of trying to lift itself up, only to slip and fall again.
