The cover of Unwoven The Second.
The Unwoven Literary Universe is a series of short stories all written by one Arthur C. It's made up of many composite stories that make up a selective canon that goes from 2013 all the way up to 2020. All of them were actually written in 2018 and 2019, they were created back starting in 2013.

It revolves around the stories of a variable selection of heroes that have to defend their world (or rather star system, as the different locations are all located in a universe known as the Otherworld) from a constant stream of enemies from all different kinds of places.

Did I mention that weird stuff happens, as the one true power source is Synergy, whose master, The Creator (better known as Alexei) created the Fandom Seed (Exactly the kind of Fandom it implies) in order to trap a pure version of that energy field into one container which grew over the course of 6 years into a large art gallery (bear with me here) that contained material from different types of art galleries (known as Soul Galleries in Legacy) known as the Folder of Surprise. The reason why the enemies have even shown up in the first place was to seize the Folder, destroy it, and replace it with a gallery of their own, comprised of nothing but (according to Beginnings) "18+ material".

Think of it as Kingdom Hearts meets RWBY minus the academy meets Xenoblade. It's that kind of story.

  • Monarch One (2016): A spin-off of the main series, this story revolves around a band of students in a high school receiving power from a being known as the Trinity Star... Because they were chosen among a generation of heroes from the last 20 years to fend off a dimensional threat that has been going around since before said students were born. Sound familiar? It was eclipsed in canon by...

  • Perfect Attendance (2019): The sequel to the spin-off. Three years after the first story, a new batch of heroes, some returning from the first one, are now involved in a new conflict involving... several things, actually.

The first story is a small conflict between two students that actually set up the plot of the next installment in the series, Raystorm, where the second student, Vaden, is revealed to be the villain.

The second story is much larger, and is about a very small selection of the cast vanishing outright, and the journey to find out where they are.

The third chapter is an essay about the life and interests of the main character which very much parallels the life and interests of the author himself. It also unveils a brand new story where a new villain threatens a dream induced] habitat where stories are told, more specifically, the backstory of the mysterious red vines.

  • Anthropomorphized (2019): Another spin-off, this time of Monarch One, which tells the story of a small group of individuals with fursuits that have been chosen to wear them by the Powers That Be. The protagonist of Monarch One, Andrew, is whisked to that city without his... even though he gets back due to being chosen. The whole fandom has been outlawed due to unsafe practices by one of the more... risque ones being shown publicly, to the point where a law has been made banning them from Collision City. Sound familiar?

  • Monarch One: Raystorm (2019): A sequel to Perfect Attendance that is MUCH Darker and Edgier than the previous installments. The school from Monarch One and Perfect Attendance is suddenly split into eight parts by a mysterious villain. The protagonist, Andrew whose name is later changed to Kyle midway through the plot is greeted to this mysterious cycle by some phantom-like beings named Embodiments, who... embodiment different aspects of students, like traits and (in some cases) personal interests. Naturally, Andrew is encouraged to open his door first and undertake the mission of solving the mystery. Oh yeah, people actually die in this one.

A distant sequel to the entire literary universe will be made starting on Jan. 1, 2020 as a Serial Novel, to be finished on January 1st, 2021 entitled Metaphysical. It takes place in a World of Funny Animals as the protagonist, Seraph is thrown into a conflict spanning multiple layers of dimensions. The enemies are animal-shaped Energy Beings called Partials, and the setting this time is a large, Cyberpunk city called Extratone. (Sound Familiar?) This conflict involves a world called "The Metaphysical", plotlines that connect to each other, cards, tons of ShoutOuts, slight Tarot Motifs, and even a gigantic mall...? The first book, Kitten Whispers, is set to release near the beginning of February.
