I personally like transformation stories. That a change happens that the MC can't simply ignore.
Nonetheless, I really wish for the character to still behave like a normal person. If not I ask myself what even is the point of the MC being a former human if they for example just act like any other demon.

Also, I have a preferation for female MCs.
Maybe I just got tired of all those harem protagonists. But even if they're not like this, I find that the stuff that happens has less impact. It's somewhat expected from a male character to fight and survive. I find the emotional turmoil of a girl far more relatable.

What I really dislike is when the girl big plastered on a cover is not the supposed MC but the pale guy in the background of the right corner.

I just finished reading your "slime girl" and I really liked it. Now I found myself craving for stories similar to it, so I wondered if you can recommend some?

expentio Author Nov 26, 2021

My other stories share the same "transformation to monster" base and have a similar style.

Slime stories: Maybe: Who Says This OL Can't Become A Splendid Slime!?
But currently on hiatus (783 pages)

My personal favorite is Core001 with a catgirl. It's on hiatus since forever, but recently the author says it will soon be continued.

If that's not it, you might specify "similar".
The "looking for" category of Scribblehub in the forum, might be a better address.

And tomorrow comes the next chapter.

Fiarest Nov 26, 2021

By "similar" i meant basicaly everything. I like your style of writing, "transformation into monster" theme (especially slime transformation , body morphing abilities in general are kind of my fetish), focus on MC menthal strugles, and the fact that she still to a degree retains human apereance. Oh and I enjoyed your two other stories too, but not that much because i don't realy like either the idea of "omnipotent horror godess" or giant insects馃ぎ.

Just realized that 95% of the new notifications come from bots which were just created yesterday and posted their comments, which by now got deleted. Does anyone have an idea what was the reason behind this? Slightly confused what warrants such an effort.

Well, probably add spammers. But couldn't they find a better target?

A good way to see this. And it shows that Scribblehubs protection works to some degree.

Piisfun Nov 2, 2021

I just realized that it wasn't just "Slime Girl" that hit trending. "Eldritch" did too.

And, as expected, the readership stats for both of them shot up massively for the day.

expentio Author Nov 1, 2021

How do you realize you hit trending? You've got over 200 notifications when looking up your account. Honestly, thanks for all the support!clear.png

expentio Author Oct 26, 2021

I've decided to sort the chapters of "Kyska's Diary behind chapter 10. Just think it makes more sense that way.

expentio Author Oct 19, 2021

I think I'll realease Formicea also on RoyalRoad. Because of this it can happen that I go over some of the early chapters. Nothing extreme, only corrections.

expentio Author Oct 7, 2021

I wanna cry.

Because of a shutdown of my tablet all the text for Formicea got corrupted. And as bad this is, I also unknowingly overwrote my USB-safe with just this data.

The only light is that I, in my endless paranoia, had a second USB with an older version. However, if I don't find out how to either recover from tablet or USB, around 5 chapters worth of text are gone to Nirvana.

Piisfun Oct 7, 2021

I would send some comforting pats, but, um...

slime is kind of hard to pat...

(I've done something similar before too, except I corrupted both of my backups, only to be saved by a third backup I hadn't realized I had made)

expentio Author Oct 7, 2021

Yep, costs me a minimum of 10000 words. And wordpad doesn't do savefiles as far I know, so I had a similar problem before and it doesn't look good. Only difference is the Stick with the overwritten data this time but there's not much of a chance.

expentio Author Sep 7, 2021

In "Slime girl" I removed the name Niboku from the chapters after realizing there would be a problem with the current structure. I think I've fixed it.

Gilly Sep 6, 2021

I really appreciate your works here! It's not often that people write an actual psychological novel about transformation, let alone three of them with very similar themes. A lot of novels in the same vein as your works tend to gloss over the pain and trauma caused by the disassociation between your own identity and the identity of your body, or treat it as something the character instantly adapts to. I like the slow burn pace, and I feel like you're creating books few writers ever could.聽

Gilly Sep 6, 2021

Watching as these nonhumans slowly adapt to their identity and come to terms with their new lives is interesting. I like the romance between Liqu and Shari, because Liqu never understood about humanity or the concept of consent and by interacting with Shari she's learning humanity, at the same time Shari is gradually letting herself become more like Liqu. And I also enjoy Eldritch, it's rare to see a story about outer gods that isn't with an arrogant MC. Please keep up the good work.

expentio Author Sep 6, 2021

Thank you so much. Comments like this are what motivates me to write. I was a bit on a low because comments and views were receding for slime girl. But I love the dynamic of those two and have still so many plans.

To be honest, I couldn't find a single eldritch that had a human mindset. They simply didn't exist. So I wrote one.

expentio Author Aug 27, 2021

This week's batch of chapters (all series together) personally feels as if it leaves a bit to be desired with.
I'm just not too sure about the contents and was in a rush while preparing them.
Still, I hope it's only my anxiety making me nervous.

On the bright side, they're big.

Mimicsbane Aug 28, 2021

Size matters!clear.png

expentio Author Jul 9, 2021

Today I'm a bit in a predicament regarding Eldritch. The next two chapters are each extremely short, but the first ends in a way that I don't want to merge them.

Maybe I could bring them simply on the same day. Just hope no one thinks I'm deliberately taking advantage of smaller chapters.

Rafvtell Jun 27, 2021

Hi, I have been reading Formicae for a day or so, and I had also put your other story about a slime girl on waiting list, there are few points I want to adress about your writing.

I know writing is hard, laborious, and sometimes, finding inspiration to continue a work in progress is hard, more so since you apparently went trough a series of school exams.

There are good points to your story Formicea:

- Good pacing聽

- Interesting protagonist聽

- Endearing side characters

- Somewhat well grounded world

Most likely, you made a lot of effort in writing the story you had in mind, and it come out not at all bad, it is in fact, very good, but you as a writer have obvious flaw that I hope, you will try to work on, it is up to you, after all you do not make a living out of those story as of right now.

This post is quite long, thank you for your time if you read it all, and I hope you will consider trying it when you have recovered from the heat and exams, little by little is enough.
expentio Author Jun 27, 2021

Thanks for the time. I don't think I can change the theater way now. For this, it progressed too long and is part of my general style. That is to say, I partly like the way it reads like a script. I might try to describe more though. It's just that I'm hesitant doing so, as I for example gave a description of the hive or the base below Osari and don't want to waste time saying redundant stuff.

Rafvtell Jun 28, 2021

Yes you did describe, the hive, and it is easy to imagine how an underground place looks like, as an other exemple, Osari didn't feel that bad, only when we had the Lord pov did you provide more information about the town.

Rafvtell Jun 28, 2021

My best advice would be, narrate what would be the key feature of the place, in your head and ask yourself if there is a need for more details, if you think the key feature are enough good, if you think you need more detail, good too.

The hardest part is finding when and where to write that information.
Of course you won't be doing Tolkien level of descritpion, but even a little go a long way especially when the character talk, human are very fond of gesture.
expentio Author Jun 19, 2021

Somehow got through my exams and am now terribly exhausted. (2 weeks, 7 written exams, each for 6:15 hours, last 2 days 35掳C and more).
I will try to restart releases next Friday.

Piisfun Jun 19, 2021

Yuck! No wonder you are exhausted!

expentio Author May 29, 2021

Sorry to say this, but my exams are up.
So I don't think I'll be able to publish at least for the next 3 weeks.

One more week to go, no total screw-up yet. However, with law it's such a thing that you can never be sure in what way you messed up and never feel safe.

torvn77 Jun 13, 2021

Are you studying to be a lawyer?

expentio Author Jun 13, 2021

Kinda. But there are many other jobs in this field. Yet I probably should sleep now for the next session.

no, no, just had a really hard day

expentio Author Apr 16, 2021

And now I've just realized that to write this comment I accidentally deleted my editing progress to release the new chapter.
