...I didn’t realize you were such an expert on romance,’ said Hector. ‘Do you even... I mean... do reapers even... er...?

No. We lose all sexual desires when we lose our bodies. And personally, I’m glad, because that shit sucked. Thank you, biology.

So in other words... you don’t really know what you’re talking about.

Hey, I had my share of relationships while I was alive.

Yeah, back when clubbing someone over the head and dragging them into a cave was considered a first date.

First of all, that’s historically inaccurate. The Lyzakks were not cavemen. And secondly, what you’re describing is basically rape, which I have never approved of, thank you very much.

Well, that’s good to know.

Would you just listen to my advice? I’m old and wise, dammit.

I don’t think an old and wise person would need to say that.

Hmm. Maybe I can convince you with an impression, then. HEY, EVERYONE, I’M THE DARKSTEEL SOLDIER. I’M SUPER SHY AND MODEST, BUT LOOK AT ALL THE SHIT I’M STILL MANAGING TO GIVE MY REAPER. AREN’T I AWESOME? How was that? Pretty accurate, right?

And maybe it was the way Garovel had phrased it, or maybe it was just the big dumb voice the reaper had used, but Hector broke down into a fit of laughter. It hit him so suddenly and so strongly that he had to lean against the wall again in order to stop himself from doubling over onto the floor. He tried to keep his voice down, but that only seemed to make it even funnier.

Garovel couldn’t help absorbing a few chuckles via proxy. ‘Wow, that really got you, didn’t it? I’ve never seen you laugh this hard before.

Slowly, Hector composed himself. He thought he was okay, but as he looked at Garovel again, he found the laughter creeping back into his lungs.

“What’s so funny?” came Lynn’s voice.

Hector turned and saw her standing there in the eastern doorway. His body tried to freeze up on him again, but a lingering cluster of amused rumbles prevented it. “It’s--ah-ha... i-it’s nothing. G-Garovel was just... aha--being Garovel...”


  1. Holy hell. I've read the whole thing in just a couple days, and I can't believe I've actually caught up. Good work with the story! Also, FIRST! Anyway, you are an amazing author and keep up the exceptional work.

  2. I would love to be back at the stage where I just started reading it felt limitless not worrying about when the last chapter was going to come up. If only I had selective amnesia.

  3. I never post much in the comments section and you could assume that this will be my last one. Just wanted you to know that you have a new follower to the blog now that I have caught up with the story. Keep up the good work... :)

  4. Imagine a web serial that updated so fast that you could not catch up?
    I don't know if that would be the awesome or complete hell. O_o

  5. Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm glad you're enjoying.

  6. Haha. I could probably do that if I wasn't so hung up on maintaining at least a certain degree of polish. BUT I AM. SO WHATEVER.

  7. As long as the quality was good it would be heaven however since I am a compulsive reader and read excessively as well as having insomnia it would probably be impossible. Already moved from fantasy to manga to light novels basically the novels of manga but quite a lot of fantasy Light Novels as well, still can't find enough.

  8. I'd say Garovel knew Lynn was coming their way and made Hector laugh on purpose so he'd be more relaxed.

    "“What’s so funny?” came [a] Lynn’s voice."

  9. Garovel didn't even know it would make hector laugh
    But what the heck though. Why you so weird hector
