Meet Carmen. Or... don't. She might not be up for that. Carmen Bowmack is a 16-year-old attending her local high school on the east side of the US. And the title is a piece of advice she could use to hear. But when you're an anxious, quiet, sport-oriented introvert who has an antipathy for the spotlight, living in a homophobic town while crushing on the hottest, most socially adept girl at school, it's hard not to second guess yourself and question things. Especially when things as simple as what house you live in, what friends you have, and reputations constantly seem to be changing, and the things that you believe to be rock-hard truth - the things that everyone tells you - are rarely as honest as they're made out to be.
A young Philosopher, in search of the ultimate truth, finds himself in another world brimming with cultivators, magic and mythical creature; a world where dangers hovers over one's head and deadly threats lurk at every corner. Together, with his companion: an evil nymphomaniac sword, he sets off on a great adventure; adventure full of bitter and funny moments. At the end of this venture, would he discover the ultimate truth or something totally unpredictable...

When Red_Two stole the most coveted possession of the oppressive Sýnnefa empire, a time machine, in his final bid for revenge, he did not anticipate falling for the kindest inventor to ever exist, in the past, back when Sýnnefa was just a simple island colony. Will he carry out his revenge and cast away the only person who had ever shown him kindness, or will he give everything up for this man, who seems to have the entire ocean in his eyes? And what can he make of the woman who carries a weapon, rumoured to end entire civilisations, and the fact that she knows everything about him, his loved ones, and the time machine? The story will be split up into three parts total, in the order of beginning, end, and middle at this current date (17/6/2020). It is in British English and such does contain the British slang and words not found in American English, for example, 'car boot' instead of 'car trunk'. For the slang, all you need is a quick search. (17/6/2020) I've honestly started posting fun history facts in the author's notes segment for the curious ones, considering so much of this is inspired by historical precedent. Each chapter title does reference something historical in the vein of the Classics. You are free to research them as you please, learn more and see if there's any foreshadowing or not. (21/7/2020) Fine. I'll continue a volume 2. You'll get a happy ending. (27/7/2020) Content warning for abuse, suicidal thoughts, suicidal ideation and suicidal action. No actual suicide will occur, just a lot of angst and SLS - s**t life syndrome. Thank you for reading and have a nice day!

**read my profile 'about me' to find out where i got this idea "Xiang Ye." "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people's thinking." --------------------- Xiang Ye was enrolled in Philosophy classes at Jilin University. He struggled in most of his classes, averaging with high C's. However, he was excellent with his thoughts and figuring things about life and elements out. Usually, he tried to help people whenever he could. But things would change. Now that he was enveloped in a world of darkness, nothing to accompany his thoughts, he thought about one of Steve Jobs' famous quotes. He died helping someone, something he majorly regretted after figuring out the meaning behind what Steve Jobs had said. - Finally, when the world brightened, he was not on Earth. A small Ding echoed through the forest, slightly scaring him. Information poured into his head. He was on a Planet where wisdom ruled, and you gained strength with thought.

I had to hide this a lot. But one day. I discovered an app that told me I could go to another world.

May galit tayo sa pumatay na may sala. May awa naman sa pinatay at nawala. Pero papano kung iisang tao lang sila? Isang tanong lang ang nasa isip ni Kuya habang nakaharap sa labi ng kapatid na si Ace. Nangako sya kay Pastor na aalagaan si Ace para maging mabuting tao at magkaron ng maginhawang buhay pero base sa nangyari, mukang imposible na ngang mangyari lahat ng yun. Ang tanging pag-asang meron sya ay kung maging maayos ang kapatid niya sa kabilang buhay base sa paniniwala nila bilang Kristyano. Pero papano mangyayari yun sa kabila ng nakasanayang paniniwala sa ganitong uri ng kamatayan? Nasabi na ba talaga sa bibliya ang kahihinatnan ng mga taong katulad ni Ace? Matatanggap ba ng mga tao kung ano mang katotohanan ang nakatago sa mga ganitong sitwasyon? Puno ng tanong at pagdududa, kailangang alamin ni Kuya ang katotohanan ng Bibliya pagdating sa ganitong paniniwala. Gamit ang lahat ng natutunan, karanasan at alaala, kailangang masiguro ni Kuya na nasa maayos na kalagayan ang kaluluwa ni Ace. Kailangang niyang lumaban para sa pilosopiya at tradisyong nakasanayan na nating lahat. Pero kaya niya nga ba 'tong harapin habang may sariling dinadala sa puso niya? At kung sa huling malaman niya ang totoo, anong gagawin niya sa katotohanang malalaman niya? Sa palibot ng alaala at katotohanan, nakatago ang dilim at mga bagay na dapat sanang hindi na niya gugustuhing malaman. Higit sa katotohanan ng pagkawala ni Ace, madami pa syang dapat malaman.
