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've been thinking if I shouldn't post now Formicea on Saturday for the time being.

Thank you. I didn't know that. Thought that the early weekend would be the usual time to catch up on novels.

FernGilly · Sep 10, 2022

The issue is more how many authors post on weekends; the feed fills up much faster. On weekdays your story lingers longer on the front page and in reading lists.

expentio · Author · Sep 10, 2022

That's why I always post 6 minutes after the full hour. To also get behind the 5 minutes later guys.

Oh that's hilarious clear.png

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree!

As if they were trying to make you read a story about another boring standart MC by hiding them in the description or as you said the cover background...clear.png

SO FRUSTRATING! I mean do people really like those boring-everyday-male-MC's so much? Apparently they do but I just don't get it. I want my protagonists to be interesting (and ideally female) and not just a self-insert for boring-horny-reader#40687(male)

expentio · Author · Aug 14, 2022

The issue is that anime and manga are proportionally still rather male-dominated and I guess the common belief is that self-insert isekai protagonists will usually find their fanbase.

The other worrisome trend I dislike that originates from that reason is the poorly made gender-bender insert that doesn't care in the slightest for the traumatic effect and is regularly only a bad excuse to write basically a male.

Sizano · Aug 14, 2022

Once again I can only agree. I personally am quite a fan of that genre but I have found only a small handfull of works which actually did a decent and even fewer who did a great job. In regards to manga I can only think of one. I mean sure it is a small genre, but it is just so disappointingclear.png

Sizano · Aug 14, 2022

Now that I'm thinking about it more there were a small couple more manga which did the "genderbender" aspect really well but ended up lower in my personal estimation since other aspects didn't sit well with me...

expentio · Author · Aug 12, 2022

Tomorrow's chapter of slime girl is going to be special. I first wanted to post just one but then decided to merge it with the next.

Yet I'm sad to announce that as things are I think I'll go on a temporary hiatus at the end of september. My backlog for this story really dwindled. But I promise I'll post more after I refilled it with the next arc that already has quite some chapters to it. It's just that I need this freedom to make adjustments.

DizzyMiget · Aug 12, 2022

No worries, your story your decisions clear.png

expentio · Author · Aug 12, 2022

Nice that my readers are all so reasonable and understanding.clear.png

Mightycrow · Aug 13, 2022

You cruel God, promising us gifts but warning of calamity!! Jokes aside ,do what you need to. As long as your happy with your story and our favorite author is alive and well, we could wait a millenia (at least I can).

expentio · Author · Aug 13, 2022

It's better for the story that way. I manage around 2-3 chapters a week and if I have a backlog I can arrange the order so it fits better. The big fight at the mansion I rewrote like 3 times. And in Eldritch I added a whole week of in-story time after I wrote the first chapters of the current arc.

Jeff091 · Aug 11, 2022

Hi,

I was just checking for changes on Core .001, and saw your message there.
Did you check out the royalroad story, it's an earlier version (minor changes) but much further along.

expentio · Author · Aug 11, 2022

I know, read it, but the author also announced that he would change that part when the release ever happens. And I have hope. A slowly dying and crumbling hope but it still exists.clear.png... clear.pngclear.png

expentio · Author · Jun 11, 2022

I hope everyone is ready for the finale of this arc of Slime Girl next week. Yes, I'm going to continue the story after this (though, a hiatus might become necessary in due time, like around a dozen chapters).

However, I wrote quite a while to get to this chapter and hope for comments next saturday.

expentio · Author · Jun 5, 2022

I chose to name the sidestory we're currently at in Formicea. Made more sense for me.

expentio · Author · Jun 5, 2022

Can changing the title delete comments? I thought there were more before.

Shirokuma · Jun 7, 2022

I dunno, sometimes a bunch of comments just disapaer aparently 

expentio · Author · May 22, 2022

Let's take this chapter as a gift for my successful exams.

expentio · Author · May 20, 2022

I wasn't sure if I'd release today since I had oral exam, but it worked out and I'm not totally devastated.

Hunt3rsf · May 20, 2022

Congrats 🎉🎉. What was it about ?

expentio · Author · May 20, 2022

Jura 2nd Exam.

Hunt3rsf · May 21, 2022

I have no ideia on what's jura, but good luck anyway clear.pngclear.png

expentio · Author · May 21, 2022

Ah, the translation might be Law.

Idea: a meeting of three mothers at a support group for raising monstrous daughters...
And the ever growing terror on the faces of the other attendees who didn't expect "monstrous" to be taken quite so literally.

expentio · Author · May 7, 2022

Hannah about her issues with her daughters apparrent new lover and all the disturbing letters she gets sent (thanks Shoto).

Farrah about hormone problems coming with severe mutation and rapid egg production. Along with the trouble of the negative public opinion about such a thing.

And Satomi about what to say to one's daughter when she again accidentally swallowed a world. Are you stern or reassuring?

Dethal · May 20, 2022

How much do I need to pay to see this?

Piisfun · May 20, 2022

You may have not noticed... this author has no payment options listed. No Patreon, no Ko-fi, no PayPal.

As long as the author laughed at the idea, I'm happy.

expentio · Author · Apr 13, 2022

Damn, I vowed to never touch this, but why do I get right now ideas for an Eldritch chapter with timetravel topic?

Seriously, everything I know about timetraveling makes me only think that it's a terrible idea which can only end in chaos and entropy.

On the other side, we're talking about Iori.
(though, with the other stuff I've planned it might be still far in the future)

I can see why it would be a bad idea but if you just want her to see the past earth or dinossaurs and stuff like that you can say it is a alternate Earth or other universe very similar

Hunt3rsf · Apr 14, 2022

Yeah, make her give our terribly powerful Liqu her thought ability or something. It could be srly used for holiday events too

nighteagle05 · Apr 14, 2022

Well, Iori is outer goddess so I think she can unconsciously block few problematic travels, fix some paradoxes without even perceiving them or block her memory off screen, she wants to be normal after all.clear.png

rohmeara · Apr 14, 2022

Iori would certainly be capable of traversing time casually. She can probably even create new timelines and move freely between them. She could go back in time, mess around, then go to another timeline where she didn’t mess around. She could go back a few weeks and meet herself before she became an outer god if she wanted. It’s harder to imagine something that would be beyond her power.

Ornyx · Apr 10, 2022

Do you have a patreon

Ornyx · Apr 10, 2022

Or discord

expentio · Author · Apr 10, 2022

Not at the moment. Sometimes I think about it, but then I get again distracted by other stuff. Also, I'm feeling quite inept to possibly manage a site.

Piisfun · Apr 3, 2022

Formicea seems to have two "chapter 80"'s.

expentio · Author · Apr 3, 2022

Thanks. Got it the first time right but then I had to reload the edit site.

expentio · Author · Mar 18, 2022

On another note, can anyone recommend a good tablet?
My current regularly shuts down, which already cost me a too great number of chapters.

The issue is, that I need the right virtual keyboard. My current (Acer) has one, where I can swipe directly to the right character. For example, I can swipe on "?" up to get "!" or left for "(" without delay. Microsoft keyboards don't bring this. Also, they don't push the lower area up, but overlap it, so you can't get to what's behind it when activated.

expentio · Author · Mar 18, 2022

The other specifications would be that I need a desktop, with the usual PC folders instead of APPs and any kind of USB-port.

Also, my current is around 13,5 - 21,7cm or 5,3-8,5 inches. The last I bought was like 10 - 22cm and like this thrown out money.

If anyone can recommend me a good tablet I would be very glad. Money is no real problem, but I wouldn't want to pay much more than 600€.
Also, it would enable me to write more, and if that's not motivating?

As I said, I can't work well with APP-based navigation. I need a desktop and the possibility to click on stuff on the taskbar or my own data, documents folders. Don't know much about third-party keyboards. Just had once this Microsoft tablet which did this overlapping thing and for example couldn't click on next page on google with it on. Had to return it.

Dethal · Apr 13, 2022

What's your opinion on physical keyboards?

expentio · Author · Apr 13, 2022

I have a stationary PC I work on with, but for writing stories, to feel comfortable, I prefer the tablet, as I can easier take it anywhere (chair, bed, subway) and it's lighter to lift.

Dethal · Apr 14, 2022

Right now all I can really think of that meats your requirements are laptops that have touch screens and honestly there are a bunch in your price range online so that's what I'm going to suggest, you might want to look into some

expentio · Author · Mar 18, 2022

So, last written exam today. Hope I can get in time back to work on the chapters. Though in May there's already the oral examination and I've no idea if I even made it.

vlodog01 · Mar 18, 2022

Good to have you back.
