  • Dark Departure

    More and more werewolves jumped from the forest whilst the convoy slowed, but the men in Mountbatten's vehicle had their own trouble to worry about. The two on the roof were trying to pry their way in. The armour held against multiple blows, though it bow…

  • Silk and Fur

    "Not who you were expecting?"

    The snake dropped from the branch, out of view before emerging mere heartbeats later - as a wolf. Its cold yellow eyes weighed heavily on Rahmi's neck.

    "I doubt there are any other shape-shifters here, so I'd wager you are e…

  • A Village On Fire

    One night, when I was nine years old, my parents and I were working on packing things into our cart. Then we heard screaming, and saw fire, and smoke.

    "Noleka, get down!" my mom hissed, shoving me under the cart.

    I couldn't do anything but watch as three …

  • Sonnet: An Unlaced Life

    My name with foul insinuation's tarred

    By people who seek easy victims meek

    To charge with crimes in public. Life is marred

    And razed for me. Now, everywhere I seek,

    .

    I picture enemies in friends I knew

    Before this whole fiasco. Do they now

    Believe tho…

  • Sonnet; Life updates (1/3)

    My life, in recent months, has been o'erfull.

    There's too much going on, inside my heart

    And head, to parse, to handle. As for art,

    I've had no spoons to work. I'm gath'ring wool,

    Bereft of words, o'ercome. I've been a fool

    Both in and out of love. How ca…

  • Smoke and Ashes

    I don't think I answered her, but she figured out all the same. Both dead. She held me tightly, trying her best to comfort me. I remember her meeting up with the others, faintly. Those who escaped the attack. I can't say I remember the rest very well, but…

  • Bargaining Post

    The thing that spoke to me had the face of a dead god but used the voice of my father. I had known to expect this. It was a by-product of the bonding ritual that gave a semblance of life back to this former deity. Not that any of the gods ever truly died,…

  • Rooftop Run

    "Stop running, dummy!"

    "You're trying to kill me, and I kind of don't want to die!" The cyan girl leapt up onto a building, shooting bright blue balls of energy at her attacker.

    "Oh, don't worry so much! It's nothing personal. I hate all your kind!" the…

  • (TBA): The Transformation

    A beam of blinding white light shot down from a sky thick with clouds, centering on Kym and bathing her in a gentle warmth. Under the intense brightness of the light her sweatpants and rumpled hoodie seemed to lose their color before fragmenting into piec…

  • Brief encounter

    I saw God today.

    At lunch time.

    Surfing on the back of a lorry.

    I was crossing the footbridge over the main road between the office and the supermarket when a figure caught my eye. He was laughing, his long hair streaming behind him in the slipstream,…

  • Opposing Harmony

    "How many died?" The lighter one asked the other.

    "Too many, nearly all. How many escaped?" She replied.

    "Too few."

    One summoned her vine-entwined rod, the other her scythe.

    "We should take care of them, shouldn't we?" The lighter one asked.

    "They'l…

  • Bringers of the Final Weeks of Life

    There is no Christmas morning planned this year.

    We might not even see a Halloween.

    The doom-predictions' date will soon be here,

    And our defenseless bones will be picked clean.

    .

    We can see the waters rising, see the waves;.

    They claw and grope and maul …

  • I Wish I Could Tell Them...

    I wish I could tell them how beautiful the funeral was. The things everyone said were so touching. Even Aunt Agnes, though I know she was full of shit, talked sweetly about her "beloved nephew" (that she hadn't spoken to since I was 5).

    I wish I could te…

  • After The Invasion

    It had only been a few months since the invasion. Aliens had killed a lot of humans, others were just missing.

    Presumably dead.

    Or, with any luck, if such a word was appropriate, they were still alive, but being used for research. No one dared try to imag…

  • Sandstorm

    He trudged through the sand, up and over great dunes of the stuff, while the wind blasted him with even more of the fine grains. Visibility was shit, and he walked more by instinct than anything. He'd long ago lost his way. The gale-force storm did nothin…

  • Scream

    How I scream

    Louder I scream

    When did I become this person

    I tear myself apart

    And lose the pieces along the way

    There's no going back from here

    But that's okay

    How I don't know

    But forward is the only way to go

    The tears prickle, always ready

    Brimming fu…
