Chapter 1

Disclaimer: I own nothing , this is purely a fanfic for enjoyment. Cross-over from various games , books, anime, manga, and movies. The familiar characters you see here belongs to their respected authors and owners.


The gamer, a recent manga I have recently been addicted too. Somehow the theme where life becomes a game is appealing to me. One can only dream to have that kind of ability, but alas it is merely a wish. Where are my manners, my name is Zed, an eighteen year old collage student and somewhat of an otaku, I have black hair, brown eyes and 5'6 in height. I have a lean build with a bit of fat due to my lazy nature. I am a fan of games especially Rpg, over the years, my love for games took root in fantasy manga and novels.

These stories are a world on itself, I even tried my hand at writing fanfiction. One would assume with my vast knowledge of game resources and fantasy novels that writing a story is easy, I tell you it's not. Writing a story is a new world in itself, stories are fickle and almost the good ideas are already posted out there but nonetheless I feel like writing my stories even if they're not popular. Now enough about little old me, and let's get on with the story.

One night when a shooting star twinkled in the sky, I made a wish to be in the gamer manga with the gamer ability. It's a silly wish I know, but one can only dream, with that thought in mind, I slept in my bed.

The next morning I woke up in a different bed. I was confused with my situation when I saw a blinking screen in front of me. Curiosity got the better of me and I clicked on it, a sudden window screen appeared in front of me which shocked me. It took 5 minutes to calm down before I began to see the message in front of me.

Now one might think I'm all set, but I do fall into the dominion of Gia and anything that I use that will affect the world in a huge way and goodbye Zed. I also have to avoid abyss inhabitants such as human trafficking and kidnapping ability users for their energy, maybe I bit off more than I can chew.

From what I can remember, Illusion barriers can be monitored, so I have to be careful if I don't want to get bagged and tagged. Luckily I have some money provided for me, so I took my wallet and searched for a weapon store.

Did I mention that finding a weapon store is like finding a needle in a haystack?. I searched for 5 hours, I was about to give up when I heard a bunch of teens mentioned an authentic weapon store around the corner. I eagerly went to the store and browsed all their weapons. I was browsing so intently that I received a 'ping' sound.
