It has been ten years of peace for the Union since the end of the great war with the eastern barbarian tribes, yet in the cold north of the Union's land, a new threat is looming. This time, an ambitious Lord is seeking to restore the yore pride of his kin, forcing the weakened Union into yet another unwanted war, as he ramps up the ranks of his army with thieves, murderers and mercenaries.* * *The temperature inside the forge was nearly twice as high as the one outside. A black-haired girl hammered a steel ingot into the shape of a blade. The heat of the steam was draining her stamina away, but her focus remained sharp as her sweat streamed down her face. Hit after hit, for hours, the sound of the hammering steel followed the rhythm of her breathing. Exhausted, she placed the blade into the water and wiped the sweat off her face using a drenched rag.
Why are they screaming?
Vatra dipped the rag back in the water, twisted it, and approached the window. Her mouth opened as her world shattered again into the living nightmare she had wilfully tried to forget. She bit her lips; it wasn’t a dream. The pulse of her heart rose. A cold sweat prickled her back. A mother was running, and a child was screaming. A torrent of smoke was emerging from the roof of her neighbour. Vatra’s eyes blinked. The mother lay on the ground, a spear through her back. A torch circled in the air and landed on the roof of her workshop. In the distance, a man wearing a banner well known to the world…
Fateless is a philosophical medieval dark low fantasy centered on war, militaristic campaigns and geopolitical conflicts between multiple empires. This story follows the fate of Vatra, a former slave from the eastern Nar Empire who was raised in a culture far away from her own, forced into warfare against her will, and the fate of Lanaya, an ambitious half-angel exiled from her home whose existence is seen as heresy. As they wished for peace, both chose a path opposed to one another until their fate crossed. In this story where war dictates the law, love strikes them as a poisoned balm to which they grasp for with all their might, as it is in the darkest of times that the smallest flames may burn the brightest.

Also, this is my first real writing attempt, (and the first draft of this story,) so enjoy and let me know what you think!
I had never owned anything in my entire life, not even myself. But the day I ran into these woods that changed.
She knew she hated his guts from the moment she first laid eyes him. Something about his smile, his presence, the way he carried himself made rage boil within her. She couldn’t stand to see his face, equipped with a toothy grin and all, eyes lively as he talked excitedly about his day with his friends. She saw him and saw red.
He had no idea who she was. They had never spoken, and their paths wouldn’t come to cross for a while longer. So why did she hate him so much?
He was so unbearably happy all the time. And she saw through it.
The Decca League Tournament has started up again and Cassandra has high hopes in winner this year. Being one of the top Decca fighters puts a lot of pressure on her but with her incredible skill she should be able to get through it with no problems. Decca fighters from all around the world gather and compete with cards full of intense power. The powerful Decca cards materialize elemental abilities and much more so that fighters can utilize the incredible powers against their opponents.

Her older sister Cassidy who was her close friend and mentor, when it came to Decca battles, had gone missing 2 years ago without a trace. Now for the very first time Cassandra will have to fight in the tournament alone without her support as she also deals with the void in her heart. Will Cassandra ever see her sister again?

Decca Story Origins and Thoughts:
Decca: The Battle of Cards story started off as a simple concept, I wanted to build a story centered around powerful cards and I'm a big fan of trading card games of course, so it was a no brainer what the core of the story would be about. As a big fan of Shōnenanime, like Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho etc., I wanted to fuse my passion for trading card games and anime by creating a story that centers around interesting characters that battle each other with trading cards. Yeah, I know the concept hasbeen done before. However, my idea took a bit of inspiration from anime like Naruto just to name an example, where the characters learn techniques using their hands to summon elemental and other type of abilities. For my story the cards would be key for the fights. Characters would be involved in fast-paced action but of course using different cards in order to summon the different techniques and elemental abilities. There could be something out there, a comic book, another novel, a video game even that probably has a similar concept or basic elements to my idea. Well, I haven't come across it just yet. Any similarities is just coincidental. The debut of this story, the first rough draft, was posted originally on Storywars.com. This site no longer exists unfortunately, but turns out that my story really didn't take off on that platform. (If you do a little of investigating on Storywars.com you'll understand.) I decided to take it and expand on it and eventually I was able to create 8 chapters (Still a work in progress.) However, I decided to give up on it for a time due to lack of response from an audience. I kept fixing and adding to the story little by little. I officially added all 8 rough draft chapters to websites like DeviantArt, Booksie and Wattpad to name a few. I got a lot of hits on Booksie.com but Wattpad.com and DeviantArt.com was not very successful. (I even created many different types of cards for the story and posted them on my DeviantArt profile https://www.deviantart.com/eamproductions). But I kept at it and eventually found this awesome site. I decided that if the story does take off I would dedicate more of my time to it. On this site I decided to take my time, take it slow and not rush and add all the rough draft chapters but instead see if there is enough interest. If I see the interest, I will dedicate more of my time to develop and edit each upcoming chapter. Thanks for reading and your support. - X Caliber - Take care!
University was Erin’s chance to begin a normal life free from an emotionally erratic mother who treated her daughter’s chronic illness like a personal project. The mysterious disorder Erin had been born with not only threatened her life, but altered her appearance with traits that didn’t come from either of her parents. Icy white-blue eyes and exceptional height attracted more than second-glances in her rural California hometown. For eighteen years she was treated like a fragile doll who was the unspoken cause of everything broken in her family. Now in a dorm room shared only by a spider, Erin was able to redefine herself.
Symptoms of her illness flared just when she was finally feeling in control. On her dorm room floor she convulsed as a burning itch erupted from the nape of her neck, going down her spine and through her veins. As consciousness faded she was unable to recognize the imposing figure leaning over her. When Erin’s senses returned, she found herself further from home than ever before. In the house of a tall stranger, she discovered that her greatest wish had come true: her illness was cured. Although contrary to how she’s always imagined, the moment was far from the answer to all her problems. The stranger revealed that Erin’s birth and illness had world changing implications. Erin soon realized she was anything but in control of the chaos to come.

16 Y.O. Elise Bakuuva only ever desired a life of peace and friendship; but thanks to the activities of both The Hive -- beings of dark magical power from another realm -- and of the Vampire Lord Arkaza, she now faces the opposite. With her powers awakened, she now seeks to stop a repeat of the Vulfax Valley incident that ruined the lives of so many, claiming many of the faces Elise once knew. A world of uncertainty awaits her as she pulls forward to master her new abilities, all while protecting the innocent and standing up for what she believes in.
Of course Arkaza and The Hive are not the only forces out there, and the conflict is not simply black and white. Her adventures will take her to many a scenario, from a civil war of two cultures, to a world on the brink of destruction from the powers of the universe, to hidden enemies working in the shadows to rule it all, to even the conflict of the beings who stand 'above' mortality. Through it all, all she can do is to keep moving forward and face whatever is to come, for that is what she believes in~
