Those fools under-powered my summoning ceremony and I was 'left with the bag'. With inadequate soul potential, I've had to curse myself to create an opportunity to live, perhaps live well in this new world. Or...maybe I just totally screwed myself. Even the goddess got curious when she realized what I had done.... more>>
“So, she finished. I wonder what took her so long to decide...WTF! Interesting! Let’s mark her for further observation to see how things turn out. This girl is perhaps the most entertaining thing to happen in the last few millennia. Hmm, let’s mess with her just a little bit. Tweak this here...and...a little over there. Heheheh. This will be FUN!"~Goddess
She tweaked my status settings after I had spent so long on them just to make things a little more entertaining. Well, at least she only changed some cosmetic and semantics stuff. None of the vital parts of my status were ruined.

I received a System that granted me skills I apparently picked in my past life, that I don't remember even picking. Then the System gave me the Middle-Gold-Finger and left my life forever.
Now with knowledge I never imagined, how can I change my sad life around? Make money? Get revenge for bullying? Find some lovers? Become powerful? I don't know but knowledge is only knowledge and I still need to fend for myself.
This is not a Fan-Fiction, so don't worry about anything belonging to anyone but the Pictures I take off the internet, he-he, I am no artist. Enjoy!
I never thought much about them.
Mostly for the point that I could never remember any of mine.
And the bits and pieces that remain would never make sense.
This is what dreams are like after all.
Just some random mix, thrown together by an unstable mind to get over the stuff which bothered one during the day.
At least that's what I thought.
Until they turned against me.
Twisted everything I knew and turned my whole existence into a nightmare.

Erf paid the price for his power, even if it was too much. He received a boon, even if it was too great. And now he needs to survive in an alien world while ensuring the safety of his estranged family. As the world will push him deeper and deeper into his shell.... more>>
But all shells eventually break. The question is — what will emerge from it?
This is the second book of my "Forgotten Dream of Tana" series that continues the story of Erf in a different world. While knowing the first is preferable for maximum enjoyment, it is designed to be read as stand-alone. This is an adult story for a mature audience — expect a similar style as the original story, but the plot continues and, with it, the new tags emerge.
Erind Hartwell, a first-year law student with psychopathic tendencies and an obsessive compulsion to follow an arbitrary set of Rules, tries to live a normal life in a world where superhumans battle eldritch horrors invading minds. Society frowned on different, and she was content with playing along if the world didn't bother her. That was one of the many Rules she followed.... more>>
Unfortunately, the world couldn't help but bother Erind's normal life. On the brink of death, an entity offered powers to save her. Left with no other choice, she accepted it, changing into a new form—the first of many that'll allow her to bother the world that bothered her.

I do not own anything from Marvel or Naruto. I just enjoy both universes.... more>>
So content warning first, this is a fanfic of hot steaming garbage. I hope you enjoy it. I will most likely put in bad words, fights, gore and maybe some smut. Or maybe I won’t, we will see how this goes. This story is my attempt to write some fanfiction that I won’t hate, which is still up for debate.
Let us follow the MC as he is pushed into the world of Marvel with his own special super power made up from the world of Naruto. This will be close to the MCU, but let's call it Earth-199999-AU. AU is for the author's universe. MCU, check. X-Men, check. Doom and the fan-4? Double check. Other stuff from comics, also check. From Naruto, eye powers? At some point, so check. Tailed beasts and summons? Nope. Chakra and ninja powers? Check and check.
At least one chapter will be posted weekly, possibly more if I write enough.

The narrative follows a young Harry Potter, who is not just a budding wizard but also a tech-savvy genius, thanks to the advanced Technology System embedded within him. This system, operating through a symbiosis of magic and technology, provides Harry with unprecedented magical analysis, data storage, and real-time spell and potion assistance. At the heart of this system is Nigel, an AI with the personality of a British gentleman, known for his dry humor, sarcasm, and witty remarks that often add a humorous touch to Harry's adventures.
As Harry prepares for his first year at Hogwarts, he delves into potion brewing and spellcasting with a proficiency far beyond his years, thanks to the Technology System's virtual environments and Nigel's tutelage. His unique approach to magic, combined with his technological edge, sets him apart, promising a future where he surpasses his canonical counterpart.
The Technology System, especially the Virtual Potion Crafting Room, becomes a pivotal tool in Harry's magical education, allowing him to experiment and master potions in a safe, controlled environment. This feature, along with the System's ability to analyze and store vast amounts of magical knowledge, becomes indispensable to Harry's growth as a wizard. The novel is a fresh take on the Harry Potter story.

Watch as the dynamics between Harry and his family, especially Aunt Petunia, transform dramatically. The story explores the emotional growth and understanding that develops between them, influenced by magical and non-magical factors.
4. Enhanced Magical Skills

Lots of and lots of manipulation.

Harry's journey is filled with adventure and exploration, amplified by his technological edge. From uncovering family secrets in Gringotts to experimenting with new magical techniques, each chapter brings new discoveries and challenges.
7. Unique Magical Training
The Virtual Potion Crafting Room and other innovative features of the Technology System offer a unique perspective on magical training. Harry's learning process is more interactive, experimental, and efficient, showcasing a different approach to mastering magic.
8. Humor and Levity
Nigel's presence ensures that the story, while rich in magical lore and technology, does not lack humor. His witty comments and sarcastic quips provide moments of levity throughout Harry's journey.
9. A Fresh Take on Canon

Reincarnated in the world of My Hero Academia with the quirk "Lucifer".... more>>
A heads up since despite the concept people are still asking a lot.
The main character has a quirk turning him into the devil/Lucifer so obviously he isn't going to be a good guy.
He is a selfish manipulative scumbag. I would term him as an anti-villain. The mirror to an anti-hero. Where an anti-hero does heroic work through non-heroic means an anti-villain would strive for villainous goals by using heroic means.
Though I personally don't consider this a harem fic the main character definitely isn't monogamous. If you don't want to read about a main character that happily sleeps with multiple women this isn't the fic for you.
