Nothing special here, just simply a light novel peasant who cultivated enough to reach enlightenment and write a novel. Look forward to future updates + projects ideas https://discord.gg/CMsHqJVDVD
Lol. You'll power up man. Just go directly to Volume 2 if you feel Volume 1 boring. It's not like I force you to read Volume 1. The way I set my novel is that each Volume feels like a book it tells a certain thing that happens inside (Entire Arc Saga) like how Oda does. Volume 1 is about getting out from the mining camp(slavery) - here you got everything you had to know. So go toward Volume 2, that's where you have more canon elements inside.
Sigh, this is not fiction about Vampire Count Dracula being transmigrated in OP world. This is the historical figurehead, this is clearly stated in the synopsis and first chapters. Why you're even commenting on these things when you've didn't even read the chapters. You want Count Dracula, go to Volume 2. You'll see something closer to what you maybe wish.
Dark energy is a separated power system of Vlad, think of it like Haki. How does this power work? It circulates around the power of death energy, in a sense that all the death around him would send a small part of this death energy towards Vlad, accumulating until something bad would happen. You see Hades uses in chapter 6 to send Vlad to the OP world and explain a bit. It's his curse or blessing so to speak. He didn't ascend to heaven, but instead got stuck in the limbo/underworld. Yet, he will still have his haki, which will be in conflict with his dark energy.
Yea. If u place starting Luffy at age 17 with Vlad who's right now 14/2 he wins easily. Ahem if you take away Luffy's Plot Armour. Vlad is the more experienced fighter. He would resort to even playing dirty if it requires him, such as toying him in his blood world until Luffy either gets mad from trying to get out or he justs gives up. If Luffy manages to pass the Blood Clones, he would in the end have to challenge Dark Vlad, which no one would want to. Let's not forget Vlad in the fight with the pirate Dethel, he didn't use Star of Collapse.
Reference + imagine how Donflamingo String clone is made, that's how Vlad's blood clone works.
Not going to argue on any of your points(they are there). Since it's like you said slow-paced (but let's not exaggerate it because it's not really that slow-paced). If you reach volume 2 you'll see the pace of the story going faster, like 2-4 chapters per event. The something that it's missing to get the readers hooked question. I thought of that at some point in time, and I can give you the answer to that question. It's the fact that I choose to develop and the world( Kingdom) too much too quickly and sometimes go into info-dumping that the majority of average webnovel readers used to fast-paced stories don't have the patience to sit more minutes to read. Because of I don't know "the house is burning or something (lol)." Since I understand this specific problem, from end of Volume 1 to Volume 2 - current I no longer bother myself with those, instead keep it clean and simple for the average Joe. However, if you really start reading patiently and get used to my story pace, there's a lot of things inside, and it will be worth the journey. Heck, you can even skip to Volume 2 because you'll get the idea of what's going on in the story, even after skipping from I don't know chapter 20-24. But I don't recommend it. So the conclusion to the problem you feel inside my story. You're right about the story not hooking average webnovel readers because of the slow-paced start of Volume 1 which gets better with events happening in the story.
Hope you like my approach to One Piece, I go with another faction point of view which is neither the pirates, marines, or revolutionaries. I'll let you find out if you are going to read my story.
Haha, good for you, I'm still waiting for that lamb in some weeks time. Anyway, check me out if you're interested in a really original take on One Piece. My approach might be shameless, but hey, if you don't get exposure like those "original" fanfics, we'll reach out directly to the reader.
Haha, I'm on a low budget, I can't even hire an editor. So everything on the chapter is proofread and edited by me. I didn't even open a patreon, so I'm really humble here. Worthy of power stones for not being greedy ;)
Yea, you got the idea. However, I think you've only read the first version. I reworked the story when I finished the first volume. So let's say you pick up from where you stopped chapter 29-32 you'll see some new plots + power system I implemented for MC. In conclusion, you got the main idea for some plots (some plots), however, with the reworked version there's more to it that I added.
