After Noah’s death, what greeted him was an AI system calling itself Black, offering him a job working for the World and Soul Management Bureau.

He has to travel to many different worlds, taking over an identity of some unfortunate soon-to-be-dead dude, and live out the remainder of his new life there however he wanted.



…Ok, sure, there are a few small kinks here and there… like terrorist attacks, murder plots, zombie apocalypses, and the like… but one should always look at the bright side!

Noah: “…Blackie, is it just me, or is this good brother of mine looking at me like a hungry wolf seeing a juicy piece of meat?” (°△°|||)

Black: “Don’t worry, host. He is just a bit excited due to nearly losing his life back there. You know, adrenaline.” (¬‿¬)

Noah: “…are you sure that’s what’s really going on here?” (っ °Д °;)っ

Black: “Absolutely!” (≖‿≖)

~ Many worlds later ~

Noah: “This secret mission that you can’t tell me about… it can’t possibly be to get fucked by the least appropriate target?!” (°ㅂ°╬)

Black: “Of-of course not! Ho-how could that possibly be, eh?” (; ゚ 3゚ )~♪

ML: Right, right, that’s just a very (not so) coincidental bonus. Ψ(╹ڡ╹ )Ψ

How many chapters and volumes will Soul Shard Captor have?

1 arc = 1 world = 1 volume =~ 120 – 200 chapters

I hope to write at least 14 different arcs. You can see some of the arcs that I am considering writing on the Vote for Arcs page. As for how many arcs I’ll end up writing out, it depends on you – readers and your support. If you continue to support me so I can make a living writing SSC, then I’ll continue writing even beyond the list of arc ideas you see now. (I’ve got many more arc ideas in my notebook.) And if I can’t feed my family with SSC, well, then I’ll have to prioritize working on things that put my bread on the table.

What extras will be available in the published version of Soul Shard Captor?

This list is bound to change, so take it with a grain of salt.

Scenes from Noah’s and Levi’s married life:

  • Opening wedding gifts – Levi and Noah open their wedding gifts and find hilarious and unexpected surprises
  • Honeymoon – Levi and Noah go on their honeymoon. Lots of fluff and smut.
  • Dolphin play – Levi finally gets to do his little wife how he wanted to ever since the two rode dolphins that one day
  • Office redecorating – Astar Levi had been in an awfully good mood lately, and a little birdie by the name of Blackie tells Noah that this is because he got his office redecorated recently and is very happy with the changes. But what kind of changes could influence the mood of this wolf so drastically?
  • Espionage – Levi suspects his baby is spying on him and turns his office and workers upside down looking for incriminating evidence of his little wife’s crimes so he could cash it in for… benefits.  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • Love Rival List – one day, Noah finds a very suspicious name list in Levi’s study…
  • The strawberry incident – Noah’s ravenous wolf of a husband had suddenly turned “vegetarian”. There must be something very suspicious going on. (_)
  • Friends night out – Case takes Noah (and his shadow, Levi) out to have fun. Yet this night is full of ups and downs, vinegar, and finally… heh, time to unpack that cat tail plug, mn?
  • Holiday family gathering – some years later, Cordias and Astars gather for holidays for a family meal. Through this extra, we can tell the family dynamic, and how the in-laws are treating Noah and Levi, as well as each other.
  • A day in the life of Noah’s and Levi’s son – meant to introduce you to the two’s offspring and how his appearance impacted everyone

The extras will also include:

  • conclusions to ALL the side characters, telling a story about how they got together with their significant other (and might also include smut between the side characters if I feel like writing it.)
  • an extra about what would have happened if Noah didn’t transmigrate over
  • An extra about what happened to the original Aris after Noah replaced him

What is the current status of Soul Shard Captor? Are you still writing it? When will it be finished?

Soul Shard Captor is on temporary hiatus until Lucy’s personal life issues are resolved (mainly lack of free time due to lack of money). However, Lucy still thinks about her darlings, Noah and Levi, all the time, and is very excited about the goodies she has in store for the future. It is hard to say when SSC will be finished. After Lucy starts writing it again, it might take a couple of months for it to be done, however, at this point, it is hard to say when Lucy will be able to allocate enough free time regularly to work on it. As things stand, if we are lucky, SSC Vol 1 might come out in 2025. If not, it might take longer, 2026 or even 2027. So let’s all pray for Lucy to have great monetary fortune so she can get back to writing.

What’s the difference between BG and BL versions of the novel? And which one should I read?

In the BG version of the novel, the protagonist is a girl. In the BL version, the protagonist is a boy. Thus, romance in BG version is boy x girl, while in BL it is boy x boy.

If you like reading gay romance novels or are into LGBT then I would suggest you read the BL version as it is the original version. And if male on male stuff is really not your cup of tea, then go read the BG version.

So BG version is an adaptation and BL is the original?

Technically yes. Though it has been nearly completely rewritten – it isn’t just changing names and pronouns. Character settings, circumstances, dialogues, thoughts, and feelings, everything that a gender swap would have even a tiny influence on had been rewritten. Of course, that includes the smut. Smut had practically been completely written from scratch, because well, for obvious reasons of differing bodyparts. :P

In short, regardless of which version you read, you’ll still enjoy a finely crafted read without plot holes or BS. So don’t worry about which is the adaptation and which is the original and just read the one whose genre you prefer.

I like your work, should I read both versions then?

You can if you want to, but the overall plot has stayed the same so you’ll probably feel like you are rereading the same book you’ve read a few months back. Though it might prove to be an interesting experience to read the same story from a gender-swapped perspective. If you intend to reread SSC anyway, then reading a different version from the one you read last time might prove to be more enjoyable for you as it would be a fresher experience.

Where and when can I buy the ebook or print version of Soul Shard Captor?

All ko-fi supporters that donated at least 6$ or Tapas supporters who donated at least 7,000 Ink will be getting the ebook version sent to their email once it is published. They will also get early access to published-version-only extras as soon as they are written through their account on my site (this site).

If you cannot become a supporter or wish to wait to purchase the ebook or print version after they are published, I’d suggest you , join our discord channel or follow me on social media (Facebook, Twitter) so you will be notified when the mentioned books are available for preorder on Amazon. Do keep in mind that the preorder price is cheaper than the price after the book goes live, however, it is still a bit pricier than getting it as a supporter bonus.

As for when the published version will be available. I am not sure. Publishing is a time-consuming process that involves editing, design, typesetting, marketing, etc. But you probably won’t be able to get your hands on the published version until the end of 2021. However, if you are one of the supporters, the good news is that you don’t need to wait until the novel is published to read the extras. You’ll be able to read them as soon as I write them.

Also, a lot of the work that needs to be done for a book publish needs to be done by a third party so in that period I’ll be continuing to write my novels as normal and release them chapter by chapter as I am doing now. In other words, you won’t be deprived of your weekly dose of serotonin. (*°°*)

Where else can I read Soul Shard Captor?

Besides reading my work here, it is also available on other web novel reading platforms. I compiled a nice Platform Comparison for you to help you choose where to read my work. Keep in mind that the same chapters are locked on all platforms. Also, here is the only place where you will be able to read published-version-only extras.
