A king and queen went into a bar, along with their princess. There, they saw a savage commoner. Disgusted, the king challenged him to a duel. After a humiliating defeat, the commoner lent a hand. Be lesser leaders like me and my comrades, he smiled.
Through the years, they defeated monsters, walked rocky paths, ran across oceans, climbed mountains, flew to the sky, touched the cosmos, and killed one last monster. In the end, the savage commoner swayed their hearts.
–synopsis on an otherworldly tale
Now, here it is retold. In Parallaxis, six champions stood against a beast to eclipse all. But like every humble beginning, it began with one of them. Haruto: the archmage of Vetus, triumphed against its turmoil once more alongside his family of three. Reluctant at first, they set off to a new life given by their comrades.
Yet within a day, a fate of a lifetime had thrust upon them. The peerless champion of the capital, grinning like the devil. To think the other family of three merely waved at them in smiles. Had they known something even a mage hasn’t? Haruto couldn’t tell. But to lead his family safe, he drew his swords at the devil.
A portal/isekai fantasy that I wanted to deconstruct some elements within. Expect so many references and dialogue as I’ll purposely write it more like a light novel.
Note: Japanese names in my novel will come with kanji/hiragana characters within parentheses. The same goes for any other derived from non-Latin writing systems. It’s because none of the names I write will be accidental or random. They’ll all have meaning.
My novel’s been on Royal Road for six months now. But I should warn you I only revised chapters 1 to 10. *Please* don’t spoil it for anyone who solely reads here. Link: royalroad.com/fiction/50163/
I’ll post a chapter every Friday to Sunday at 12:00 AM (GMT+8).
