"Chances Are..." by Stultus is great, although not yet finished. I'm really impressed with his subtle plot lines and characters. (I can't remember ever using "subtle" to describe Stultus!)

All-bad versus all-good battling it out for control of the city; a real apocalypse tale, with a real armageddon looming. (Well, the "all good" might be a bit of a stretch.) And beyond the street fighters of the demon class, there are the demigod class of characters orchestrating the events. A real, modern-times fantasy with characters of metaphorically significant depth.

But then, inserted into the fray comes a tipping point character, a gray ray of moderating rationality--a rationality that is both of reasonable intent and intellectual daring, a messiah figure with smudges on his gown. The implications are really enjoyable to ponder. And chances are we will get to do so.

The setting and characters and plot took me a couple chapters to figure out what the author was intending, but after that it's been pure joy. Little on-stage sex until later, when sex scenes really take off. Nearly typo free with almost no grammatical errors.

Thank you, Stultus, for sharing this tale with us. It could really be a classic of modern-day literature.
