Highschool DxD: Dragon's Ascent

It's not often you get a second chance. Even less often that your second chance involves you being sent into a world where mythology is real and devils roam the world. Even less is that world being an anime you have watched before. That's right, I have been transmigrated into Highschool DxD. So, how does one survive in the world of Dragons, Gods and Boobs? Trough breaking the system of course! Because when life gives you a chess board you flip it over. Note: I do not own the cover nor do I have any claim over it

Chapter 33: Expert x Experimentation

As I lay on top of my new friend I tried to relax and looked over my completed quests.

You absorb mana exceptionally well, your mana capacity and regeneration increase. You can absorb a portion of the mana from the attacks you are hit with.

____________________________

Alright, the skill could be better since I could have figured that out myself but other than that the trait is very good. Not the best but you can't expect the best every time.

After all, it's my job to turn mediocre to exceptional.

Also, there is another quest that is completed. What?

Oh, it's that one. It kinda slipped my mind since I was more focused on creating Frankenstein's monster.

[Perk - Harem Dreamer]

____________________________

Wow, that is actually rather very generous. Very accomplishable too. Sex Magic may sound like nothing more than a gimmick that would be wrong.

Issei constantly caught people out of the left field with his ecchi magic. It's actually useful because people never expect it. I wouldn't be able to keep my cool in a fight if suddenly all my clothes vanished and I started nutting.

...That seems like a damn good idea, I gotta complete that quest Asap. I can already have sex with Kalawarner and Mittelt. Kissing them should count too.

Hehe. It's all coming together. While I was at it, I looked at the new perk too.

____________________________

[Tamer]

Allows you to instinctively have a feel of how to tame familiars and others. Makes it easier for others to submit to your will via taming.

____________________________

Seems cool, but I have no ambition of getting more pets really. I only want this guy because he seems like a hella source of ingredients. He is way too hefty to use for conventional battle.

Speaking of, by the time we arrived back Hydra regrew all of its heads back and was in pristine condition while I still spotted a slightly burnt arm alongside charred scraps of clothing. I gotta make a new wardrobe, I have got an idea of making better silk and need to rebuild my catalysts.

Sitting on the main head I saw Rias and her peerage looking at me with mouths and eyes open with Ash Ketchum looking astonished.

Rias acted first, opening her devil wings and rushing towards me, landing on the hydra-head uncaringly as she grabbed my wrist and pulled me into a hug.

"Takumi-kun? Are you okay? Your arm is burnt!" She said looking over my arm as I sweatdropped.

Did she just jump on a Hydra's head just to check on my arm? Mama bear instincts much? Now I didn't get to make my boasting speech. I put my arm on her shoulder and grinned at her.

"Geez, calm down Rias. Have some faith in me will you? As you can see, I had a little tangle with rattler here. Thankfully for it, we did come to a compromise with it as my familiar."

Ris nodded relieved and equal parts surprised.

"Takumi-kun? That was what you were doing? You tamed the Hydra?" Rias said, looking down, realizing that she was in fact standing on a perfectly content Hydra.

"Oh my, I expected you to do something brash but I did not expect you to even tame the Hydra. You really are full of surprises aren't you Takumi-kun?" Akeno commented with a giggle while covering her mouth as I shot her a wink and finger gun that sent the message of 'you know it baby.'

"...Big." Koneko said, sizing up the building-sized Hydra several thousand times her size. I could she almost wanted to hiss at it as she slowly backed away.

Oh right, cats and snakes.

I will definitely slip a cucumber behind her sometime.

Jumping down from the Hydra's head I landed in front of Ash Ketchum with a smug grin.

"So, how about now Ash? Is the Hydra too big for me now? I don't know but the scene behind me looks awfully realistic." Hearing my words the Pokemon master sighed in resignation and took off his hat.

"Well, I'll be dammed, seems I was wrong about you kid. Didn't think you would go ahead and subdue the Hydra. Guess even a familiar master like me still has a lot to see." I could see Rias giving me a blank look that said 'You really hunted the Hydra because of that?'

Still grinning in victory, I turned to Rias.

"By the way Rias, could you help me acquire some land around my house? I kinda need to have this guy live somewhere. Haha." Rias sighed in resignation with a smile and shook her head.

I will take that as a yes.

Now, where the fuck do I put this guy? Gal? Thing.

✧—•✦•—✧—•✦•—✧—•✦•—✧

Once I made it back home I created a giant ass swamp slightly underground for my new Hydra to live in. Of course, I wouldn't be taking care of it because honestly. I can't be bothered. So I gave the job to Asia who loved the idea.

I don't know what the deal with that girl is, the moment she saw the giant as Hydra, instead of being scared she petted it and the Hydra allowed it. She just seems to have a natural affinity with dragons, I remember that being a plot point or something.

Regardless I sure as hell am happy I have maids, because if I had to take care of everything myself I sure as hell would have gone mad.

I let out a relieved breath as I entered my laboratory, my natural domain, like an introvert returning to his cave. My batteries are spent, now I just want to return to being a mad scientist.

Though before I start I am curious about this Bond. Willing a single thought the page opened before my eyes.

____________________________

[Bond]

Rias Gremory - Level 5

Relationship Status: Are we dating...? Regardless, I like him.

Akeno Himejima - Level 3

Relationship Status: Ufufu~ my cure junior. I want to spoil him~

Koneko Toujou - Level 3

Relationship Status: ...Great friend, like him.

Asia Argento - Level 8

Relationship Status: My benefactor! ...What are these feelings...?

Raynare - Level 6

Relationship Status: My new master, I hope he can make true to his words.

Kalawarner - Level 2

Relationship Status: My master, I will obey him, no other choice. He is stronger. But I wonder if I get closer to him will I get stronger like Raynare?

Mittelt - Level 2

Relationship Status: Shit, Raynare that bitch, she is getting ahead of me. What do I do?

____________________________

Yep, it's about what I expected. I guess Raynare has been bragging to her buddies about the items I gave her. I don't know what's going on with Asia though.

Anyway, let's put my head down and get to work.

So, I got my ass beat.

Sure, I won. But I got beat up so badly. And I for one do not like that.

Any fight I am going into I want to wing overwhelmingly with no room for any dispute, not by the skin of my teeth. First of all, I need to re-create my Catalysts and make new ones.

I re-created the Kelving Catalyst with even better gloves, I call my new silk Mana Silk, made from spider silk suffused with mana over time. It is 2.5x more durable than spider silk without much change in texture. It's just harder to make, taking a long time in a mana bath complete.

I also replaced all of my Catalysts with slightly improved versions. They had better range and options. In my hands were now the:

Terra Catalyst 2.0 - Earth Manipulation

Ampere Catalyst 2.0 - Lightning Manipulation

Kelvin Catalyst 2.0 - Water/Ice Manipulation

Aero Catalyst - Wind Manipulation

Ignis Catalyst - Fire Manipulation.

Who needs offensive magic when you can just exploit the Alchemy buff of your system to make Alchemy your offensive power am I right? If I used any other spells at the same level they would be 25% weaker than my transmutation.

Alchemy smarter not harder.

Speaking of Alchemy. I think I have a good idea. Now I have Second Liberation, right? That means transfer.

...Can I use transfer during potion creation? I have to know.

✧—•✦•—✧—•✦•—✧—•✦•—✧

"Hahahhaha... Hahahahhaha... HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!"

I laughed like a maniac as I spread my arms wide to the heavens.

I did it! I really did it! I broke it! I broke the world!

I found the exploit! I made it work!

{Partner... have you finally lost it? You have laughing at the air for a solid minute now.}

"Oh, Ddraig. You do not realize the breakthrough I have just made. I have broken through indeed. I turned potion-making from the novelty of a human alchemist to the divine levels of Skyrim!"

{I see. I still don't get it. Even though I was watching. You sure you didn't drink a strange potion?}

"Ddraig. I found a way to boost my potions."

I let that sink in for a moment as Ddraig took a bit to respond.

{Oh yeah, now I am starting to understand. That seems... very "broken" as you call it. Is this what you refer to when you say Rumble of Alchemical Triumph? Because I can tell you, with you capable of what you can you could probably choose a faction and win them the war eventually.}

Indeed! I am no longer an Alchemist to be reckoned with. And this potion in my hands was the proof.

[Boosted Intermediate Healing Potion]

A potion boosted by the Boosted Gear. It is capable of healing 825 Vitality.

It normally would have healed 165.

I just casually increased the power of the potion by 5x. It wasn't even a hassle. I just have to use Transfer with the Boost during the creation process to supercharge all ingredients and the result is this.

Granted, I have to create a new formula and make new calculations since I risk exploding the potion when I give it my total mana reserve times five but it is still possible and very plausible.

Oh yeah, this is what I am talking about.

A/N: The true might of the Boosted Gear is in Takumi's hands. Normally potions wouldn't be too out of the ordinary, since the power of the potions a human alchemist can make is limited. But with the boosted gear there is no such limiter. Takumi has turned his Alchemy from realistic to Skyrim bullshit.

Also, what do you guys think about the bond system and new Boosted Gear use? I would love to know.
