Monsterventurers – Chapter 04

(AN: THE COIN FLIPS, THE COIN BACKFLIPS, THEN COIN CROSSFLIPS… Then a slime comes and steals the coin and rigs the game. Thus, Astelle shenanigans today!)
(AN2: Shorter chapter compared to the other Monsterventurers one, leaning at just over 3.3k. I could extend it, but then it’d be either too much, or the last part would be just jammed in there, so, there we go.)
(AN3:So… About not starting new stories… Well… Hehehe… You see… I… I…

Hello! Tsundere Mage Astelle here desu!

A-And I did not tie my hair in Twintails just because you said you liked, B-Baka!

 

Well, jokes, aside, hi, it’s been a long time since we last saw each other, imaginary readers whom I’ve grown used to talking to so that I could pretend to still be sane! Around one week to be precise!

 

And no need to worry, I’ve been a good slimeventurer and have been training non-stop these last few days!

Project MMG – Chapter 18

(AN: THE WAIT IS OVER! MMG IS HERE!)
(AN2: Still on test weeks, but this should be the last one, so shouldn’t be that bad. You may expect an update next weekend, but that’s up to your own risk.)
(AN3: On the matter of updates, tempted to do a second MMG chapter. If not, i’ll probably go for Monsterventurers.)
(AN4: on another side note, I’m kind of tempted to do a character sheet of my characters from PSo2/Go-to game characters. Don’t ask me why, I just feel like doing it… Oh well. If i do it, it won’t be at the cost of a normal chapter, so don’t worry.)
(AN5: COOKIES FOR EVERYONE!)

 

Mana. Familiar, yet at the same time oddly foreign mana reached it. Deep where it was, hidden from the eyes and ears of the people of the world, it still felt the familiar sensation.

 

And because of that, it woke up.

 

Its first thought was confusion. Why and how was it feeling mana from whence it was? Secluded in the unreacheable parts of the abyss, there was no way that any simple magic remnant would reach it without some serious power behind it. Not unless said mana was deeply related to water.

Dragooness – Chapter 07

(AN: Well, a bit late since PR decided to go watch a movie over editing the chapter, so here it is. Also a bit on the short side with barely 3k words, but had i continued, the story would drag too long for the chapter and we might only get a next week release >.>)
(AN2: Shameless plug to my idea drop from saturday. Go give it a look/suggestions if you feel like it.)
(AN3: Next in line is MMG for the next weekend. Had something other to say, but blanked out, so i’ll stop it here.)

 

I followed the Lamia down the campus, wondering where exactly she planned to take me for the classes. I had asked her but all she replied was somewhere quiet.

 

After some time, I thought that she was leading me towards the magic course’s building, since we passed near the firing range. However, instead of heading towards its entrance, we passed beside the building and instead entered a small area behind it.

 

Despite having spent quite some time looking around the academy, I couldn’t help but become surprised at the sight of the well maintained garden that I had never seen before. Hidden behind the magic course’s training hall, it made sense that I hadn’t seen it before, but I was still amazed at how I had missed it for so long.

Otome Knight In Education: Declaration Of Knowingly Impairing Events – Chapter 01

(AN2: So, here it is, another new story with another ridiculously long title (Blame Xacual for the title, actually, original plan was only Otome knight.) that i mentioned last week. This one based on the shoujo-type LN where they reincarnate into an otome game.)
(ANXIV: On that note, from the next chapters and forward, i’ll probably stick to the shorter version of the title, OKIE DOKIE. And in the matter of next, for now, the plan is to stop with new stories and focus on writing Dragooness.)
(AN -3 +2,7J:  Onto the usual first chapter matters, this story is basically a man reincarnated into an otome game heroine and doing her best to avoid getting entangled into the main storyline where she ends up with a guy. Of course, things don’t go well. Both for her, and for the storyline (On a side note, I think this is the first story of mine where the GB is actually genuinely important to the plot…))

Genres: Gender Bender, Comedy, Fantasy, Magic, School Life

“I want to be a mage when I grow up!” I heard Leon saying proudly while his eyes shone with excitement. “I’m going to make fire and ice with my hands, then, bam! I’ll throw them in the monster’s face! Then-then-then, just like the great Archmage Oldruhan, I’ll one day manage to freeze up a volcano…” As the five years old boy kept on saying his dream, he made gestures as he said his words, with each motion being slightly bigger and grander than the previous one.

 

I smiled awkwardly at the overly excited brown-haired boy as he stated his dreams. However, knowing that if no one stopped him before he got a bit too excited, things would end up badly, I quickly changed the position of the broom in my hand and smacked him in the head with the handle, eliciting a yelp of pain as he let go of his own broom to hold on to his head.

 

“Yeah, yeah. We know you want to be a mage, Leon.” I said with a snark. “You say that every other day.” I said while pulling back my broom and going back to doing my work.

 

“Ugh… ” He complained while staring at me as tears formed on the corner of his eyes. “Why did you do that…”

 

“Because last time you got too excited, you broke Helena’s vase and we all got punished because of that.” I said bluntly.

 

“Brute tomboy…” He complained between his breaths while crouching to grab his broom again.

Monsterventurers – Chapter 03

(AN: A bit late, but the chapter is longer than average, so we are even, right? Riiiight?)
(AN2: On  another note, in this one chapter I managed to give Astelle and Mur a trait each that might end up becoming an important part of their characters. And it was all an accident! Neat!)
(AN3: In a PSO2 note that i doubt many will get, just got a 14* rod in PSo2 earlier today. Now i’ll avoid leaving my house for today because I might just have wasted my luck.)
(AN4: on a slightly serious note, A buddy of mine from the den, who goes by Karami92 in RRL, and Druid in the Den, writer of World Seed, World Keeper and a couple of other stories just went through a serious scare with Amazon. He depends solely on his books selling in the site to earn money, but had his account banned because of some bot conspiracy that had been going on with Kindle Unlimited. I would have linked his talk here and ask you guys for helping go support him, but he managed to get his account back after removing his story from Kindle Unlimited. So, this is mostly a post-note and I just wish him cheers. If anyone still wants to go help him, here’s a link to his Amazon page:Druid’s Amazon. Go check his stuff out.)

 

Hello there! It’s your favorite slime Astelle reporting in!

 

And yes! I now have a name! Hooray!

 

And I’m about to take my very first step into becoming an adventurer too!

 

I… I know I’m not worthy of such huge blessing, but, I shall do it, for there’s no greater honor than to get even one step closer to such a summit. One step closer to becoming an adventurer!

 

I’m… I’m getting emotional. Okay. Deep breath, Astelle. Deep breath. Ignore the fact you can’t breathe, what matters is the feeling. Okay. Ready. Let’s go over what happened.

Project MMG – Chapter 17

(AN: YAY! MMG post! And before anyone starts, feel free to ignore PRing ANs. I myself don’t bother doing grammar for them either)
(AN2: On another note, “currently working” on Dragooness for next weekend. )
(AN3: So, I recently felt like making this poll for no good reason. I won’t force any of you guys to vote, but these are mostly for fun anyway. Also, i’m kinda curious about comparing the results (Yeah, please vote in both in case you vote any))

IMPORTANT POLL 1
IMPORTANT POLL 2

 

The moment that the girls saw the leviathan take flight, they couldn’t help but think that they were about to get into serious trouble. Shelly seemed happy to oblige with that idea.

 

The girls have fought faster opponents, but Shelly’s surprise liftoff threw the girls’ plan out the window. If they had taken a minute to observe her, they would have noticed that Shelly’s speed was actually a bit slower than their own.

 

However, in their shock, the girls never noticed this, and by the time they finally managed to react, the Leviathan was already too close for them to put the plan they had spent so long thinking into work.

(Re)Turn – Chapter 15

(AN: Hello there! After a couple of weeks without any update or anything, here i am bringing out a Re Turn chapter! What? I said i was writing slash felt like writing another story? I have no idea what you are talking about!)
(AN2: As an excuse, i was dragged on a family trip for the previous week and would leave the hotel every day to walk around somewhere. My legs would get home killing me and any mood i might have had for writing, so yeah…)
(AN3: Lastly, working on MMG right now. Chapter should be up next weekend. No promises since i return to classes tuesday though.)
(AN4: i’ll be farming Kulve Taroth today in MH. If anyone have it for Xbox and feels like joining me, just drop a comment. I might make a discord chat or something like that.)

 

“Test, test…” I said out loud while testing the spell. Good, sounds exactly like her. Feeling satisfied with the result, I slowly squirmed myself out of Mya’s grasp and leapt up to the ground, transforming myself mid-jump so I could be back to my humanoid form.

 

I turned back to my sleeping owner, who was now starting to seek me in her sleep.

 

I… Sincerely love her. I’m not sure whether this is loving her as a girl, as a person or as an owner, but I do know that I love her, and a whole lot at that. I’d gut myself dead at the drop of a hat if this meant saving her.

 

Still, even though I feel so dearly for her…

 

It doesn’t mean I can resist pranking her.

Monsterventurers – Chapter 02

(AN: Slight April’s fool’s joke title. Will change when day’s over if i remember.)
(AN2: Originally I planned on posting a very long and well emphasized text talking about how I planned on doing absolutely no April’s fools joke whatsoever. Then hammer that point in repeatedly, point out towards my perfectly serious personality and end up with a note that the post had been written on april’s fools… Then actually post an actual innocent chapter.)
(AN3: But then, everything changed when the lazy nation attacked.)
(AN4: Anyway, onto chapter matters: YAY! SLIME GETS A NAME! And for any question you guys might have about her action/Lack there of, ask yourself: Can this be explained by the MC being scatter-brained and single-track minded to anything adventurer related? If yes, that’s your answer. No, seriously, I actually mean it! Wait, this doesn’t work on april’s fools, right? Then… Yeah, that’s totally not the case. There we go.)

 

Greetings! Here is your favorite slime reporting in!

I… Most regretfully, must I add, finally managed to get myself out of this holiest of places and go back to the streets, after all, I still had other places to explore. Like the church. I mean, yeah, if I could, I would just set up camp and live the rest of my slimy life in there, forever protecting and inhabiting that place.

But, this is an abandoned village, and as much as I want to believe that the holy aura emanated by the guild would keep the monsters away, I shouldn’t let myself get lenient just because of that. Oh yeah, I guess that the church might have helped a bit to keep the monsters away, but nowhere near as much as the guild for sure.

Anyway, yeah. I still have to investigate the rest of the village. Can’t start living in the holy land just yet.

Monsterventurers – Chapter 01

(AN: So. I said that I would write IO next. I failed due to sheer lack of willpower. Instead, here’s a story that i had in mind for some time now and decided to put into words two days ago and became a 7.4k words long first chapter. Usually I would explain the summary of the story, but the Character does it better than I could ever do, so just read below for the summary.)
(AN2: As always, Genres: Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-fantasy(eventually), adventure, ADVENTURER!, Slice of life (Damn, didn’t expect this one!!), Gender bender (Okay, this one is 100% blamed on Xacual. I was still considering a normal Female MC.))
(AN3: This story is brought to you by the Endless Space 2 Soundtrack. I literally listened to this 80% of the time i was writing this down.)

 

We’ll reincarnate you, they said. You’ll be in a world of sword and magic, they said. Isn’t that everybody’s dream? They said.

 

Yeah… I think that’s the last time I’ll ever trust the gods with anything.

 

Sure. I was reincarnated. Sure, I am in a world of swords and magic. Sure, it was something of a dream of mine to one day become an adventurer. But… But…

 

I could at least have been reincarnated as a human, right?! Okay, Okay, I would also settle for something like elf or beastman. Maybe even a dwarf! Yeah, I could totally accept a dwarf too, can’t be too choosy, right? Yeah, I also wouldn’t mind even becoming a humanoid monster, like a vampire, werewolf and so on.

 

Well, at least make me capable of defending myself, you know? That would help me a lot!

 

But nooo. The gods went ahead and reincarnated me as a slime. A freaking slime!

 

I CAN’T BECOME AN ADVENTURER IF I’M A SLIME!

Dragooness – Chapter 05

Despite what I had expected, morning classes had gone extremely smoothly. Even when we were in the period between classes, there wasn’t anything big happening, seeing how Lumiera kept a tight guard around me all the time.

 

On one hand I felt that she might have been overdoing it, but on the other hand, I was glad she did it since she kept the incoming questions limited to only one at a time. Besides, from the way it seemed, the Grandmaster’s explanation during the morning assembly had already answered some of the more pressing matters.

 

For the last morning class, the students were split between their courses, so Lumiera had to go to her specialized magic class while I had to go to fencing classes.

 

Though I say that, I had been excused from class both because my sword’s handle had been broken and because the medics insisted on me avoiding extraneous physical activity. However, I didn’t really felt like just sitting in a corner of the room and simply watch the others, so after at least doing some stretchings, something that gathered a lot of attention for various different reasons.
