Hello there everyone!! I’m looking for episode stories that has the grimdark fantasy genre/theme in them. They also don’t have to have ccs in them at all, it can just be a good episode read to enjoy following along!! I also would like if it had any strong element of things/tropes like “A Fate Worse Than Death”, an all multiple bad ending routes for both the mc and the characters with no actual “good/happy ending”, and/or an bad end ireversible fate kind of thing. Also with mortally grey characters in it, that includes the includes the mc.
“Grimdark is a subgenre of speculative fiction with a tone, style, or setting that is particularly dystopian, amoral, and violent.” via Wikipedia
I appreciate it if you guys have any to share or reccomend!

Greetings! Thank you very much for this thread. Here are two of my stories that are on the darker side. In Magicka: Dark Star you make decisions determining if you embrace your evil nature or not. And in Eternal Oblivion as the story goes on, and more is revealed, things continue to get darker and darker until the end of the story. Perhaps one or both will pique your interest. If you do end up reading any of them, I’d love to hear any thoughts you may have.
Magicka: Dark Star
Title: Magicka: Dark Star
Author: Silver Lady
Genre: Adventure/Dark Fantasy
Status: Finished (3 episode short story)
Description: Lyal was born under a dark star, an omen of evil and death . Will she rage against the dying of her light? Or will she embrace her dark destiny? (choices matter, 4 endings).
Episode Accolades: Magicka Contest Winner
Title: Eternal Oblivion
Author: Silver Lady
Genre: Fantasy primarily with a large dose of mystery, as well as action, drama, romance, and historical fiction thrown in from time to time.
Number of Episodes: 42. Story is complete. NO “Skip the Wait”.
CC: Kinda. You can’t customize the main three characters (for story reasons), but there is a character for you to customize starting with chapter five. You won’t see much of her to start, but she becomes more important later in the plot.
Description: When a powerful force rises to threaten the world, can Amara and her allies defeat the ancient death dragon? Or is life as they know it doomed?
Additional Info: The story unfolds on multiple timelines over the course of 5k+ years, and examines the affect true immortality could have on a person and their loved ones, as well as how the choices we make can have long lasting consequences, and the idea of determinism vs. free will.
