HCOP Book 2, Chapter 94: Emergence


On one fateful day, roughly twenty years after the apocalypse, a horrifying beast emerged from the ‘Abysmal Pit’. It was essentially just a giant blob of pink sludge, but it was still quite dangerous. Any demonic beasts or other creatures that approached, would be sucked inside and consumed. Even the rocks and minerals were devoured and transformed into mana. Continue reading

Chapter 288: Auspicious Names

“Congratulations! Your ‘Mystery Cat Egg’ has hatched!” Michael and Elina both received the message at the same time, but it didn’t specify exactly ‘what’ emerged or the number of offspring. Thus, Adam was able to teleport on top of the floating cube and press the button that led to the roof. From there he used ‘Rainbow Jump’ a few more times to escape as far away as possible.

Hardcore OP-ness

I just finished writing the ‘Epilogue’ of the first book, or at least what I call the first book lol.  I felt the need to make an announcement about it :P.

Anyway, I’m not going to talk about the next book ‘here’, because there are still 41 chapters and an Epilogue that hasn’t been posted on the site yet.  Obviously, there are just way too many potential spoilers and I’m afraid to say anything about anything at the moment.

However, since I haven’t gotten any new donations or pledges lately, I decided to remind people about it.  I kind of want to take a break from writing for a few days… or something?  But mainly because I know that once I start writing book 2, I’m probably going to start getting devoured by it, like I did back when I first started writing Hardcore OP-ness.

I’m already really burnt out, so if I go straight into hardcore writing mode in my current condition… lol.  Anyway, I want everyone who has donated or is planning on donating to know that I’ll be placing book 2 stuff into the same folder that I’ve been using for the first book.  So~, if you donate 10 dollars or pledge 10 dollars, I won’t remove your access just because I’m starting a new book rofl.

I mean, sure, I’d probably get a lot more donations and pledges if I treated HCOP as over and started something new, but I don’t think that would be fair at all to the people who have supported me and helped keep me writing for so long.

Sigh, I can’t believe I’ve been able to finish a book in 4.3 months… I’m not sure if that’s long or short, but I’ve definitely written at least 100k more words in the last 4.5 months, than I did over the course of the 10 months I was working on Immortal Soul.  As for Immortal Soul, who knows?  I may randomly decide to start working on that again, but for now, it’s on hiatus.

I will say that “Immortal Soul” and “Hardcore OP-ness” do have a pretty strong connection to each other, but I can’t specify how.  After reading the rest of this first book and the beginning of the second, you should probably understand by then, assuming that you’ve already read “Immortal Soul”.

Anyway~, I can’t really think of anything else to say~, so I’ll just link so cute animal videos or something? lol



Hopefully, when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll be able to completely edit Chapter 5, and be able to post it.  Although, since I wake up at weird times… well, lets just say, within 48 hours rofl.

I’ll also be posting all of Act 3, and the first four chapters of act 4, in the form of… posts, before posting chapter 5.  I plan on getting the table of contents filled with links too, but it’s not a high priority lol.

Fun Fact: While posting chapters earlier, I realized something pretty ridiculous… Raelin’s original name was actually Raenil Nirorneth.  Then I randomly started calling her Raelin Nerorneth in chapter 11.  I can’t believe that no one told me about that 😦

Anyway, before editing, Chapter 5 is up to 14.5k words, after editing it should be over 15k.  Hopefully the ridiculously long length will somehow make up for me taking so damn long to write it lol.

I haven’t started working on it yet, but I’m probably going to write chapter 6 in third person PoV… who that third person is, I’m not quite sure yet.  It’s not like I haven’t written anything in Immortal Soul in third person PoV so far, so it shouldn’t be weird, hopefully.

Several people asked me to talk about the tiny mouse people, and I personally would like to tell a few short stories about various characters, in a sense, chapter 6 will likely be an interlude.  To be completely honest, I was planning to add a prologue, epilogue and interlude, among other things, into each of the volumes I’ve already written… once I’m done with volume 4 that is, because I’m only about half-way finished this Act.

When I go back and read volume 1 especially, it’s incredibly painful to resist the urge to edit everything lol.  Unfortunately, the amount of editing required is so extreme, that I would literally have to double the lengths of the first few chapters.

Okay, I really need to stop typing now and go to sleep 🙂
