(Highest Ranking - #8 in Fantasy!!!!! ❤) -- "My father," he croaked, trying to laugh and failing. "My father was crying over me. I don't get it, Ella... my whole life, he never wanted me around, always told me I was a waste of time, of money, of everything, that I was good for nothing and that he hated me. He even told me to my face that my birth was a mistake, so... why did he cry when I died?"

Phil Heseroph wasn't exactly the best at being the boy-next-door. Grumpy, clumsy, and highly insecure with his life as a whole - he was the complete opposite of his girlfriend, a bubbly nerd named Ella. But like Yin and Yang, the two of them were inseparable... at least, until the day Ella died and he was completely destroyed by it.
  
Giving up on everything, he took the plunge and killed himself, but instead of finding his much-expected peace in the afterlife, Phil somehow found himself very much alive on a parallel world called Atlas as an almost monstrous-looking version of himself.
  
Which would have been bad if he hadn't immediately come face to face with another version of his dead girlfriend.
  
There are only three problems.
  
They never met in this new reality, the timeline of the world around them is more medieval than modern, and she just so happens to think he's an evil monster hell-bent on killing her.
  
Things aren't bad at all.
  
They're a God damn nightmare!
  
Trapped in the kingdom of Aerika, a bizarre place chock full of things like magic, elves, orcs, demons, faeries, squirrel-riding women, assassins, a tyrannical hierarchy, and everything else under the sun, Xaphile finds himself very confused and depressed.
  
Is this his own, personal hell?
  
Or is it a second chance?
  
And if it is a second chance... does he even want to take it?

It's okay, kid. I'm almost thirty, and my head hurts just thinking about what you've just been through.

There aren't enough walls in the world for me to bash my head against reading crap like that. -_-

You better. Every scathing syllable was well-deserved and needed to be said. Just goes to show that sex isn't worth censorship...

Well, my paternal grandfather was full-on Mexican, but it got bleached out by his wife and my mother. Does that count? ;)
