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,…Posted 2 years ago

"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…Posted 1 month ago
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 …Posted 10 days ago
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…Posted 38 hours ago
So by now we all know that there’s no logical explanation why honeybees can fly, weight and wings and stuff, it shouldn’t be possible, but bees fly anyway. Perhaps bees are magical creatures, then. And the drop in bees’ quantity is alarming to the wizardi…Posted 2 years ago

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

Prunella turned from her novel and rolled her eyes in copious disgust.Posted 3 years ago
I don't know how I made it through what came next. The next days were a blur of pain, both physical and emotional, and fever dreams, in the rare moments when I slept.
My first task was to split the figure of my father in half, carefully using the tools o…Posted 2 years ago
"Okay, so... Yeah. We've got this." Captain Gaia looked us over. "Hero Corps, let's..."
"Uh, question." Even I couldn't believe I had spoken up, never mind that I had just interrupted Captain Gaia!
He stared at me for a moment. "Is this going to tak…Posted 3 years ago
I held that piece of flesh up before me, bitter distaste filling my mouth. If what my father and I had done before had been blasphemy, this was surely something far worse, to desecrate the body of a god in such a way.
And yet it was necessary. This war b…Posted 2 years ago
"How many died?" The lighter one asked the other.
"Too many, nearly all. How many escaped?" She replied.
One summoned her vine-entwined rod, the other her scythe.
"We should take care of them, shouldn't we?" The lighter one asked.

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…Posted 11 days ago
"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…Posted 1 month ago
A lifeless void. This place was had no life to be seen. None she could feel. All that remained of it were traces of life... momentos from a long forgotten past. The feeling that something had once lived here. The memories of light. The only thing that liv…Posted 1 month ago
A yearning pit of doom. This place felt like death. Empty. Desolate. Yes, someone or something had killed everything that was good here long, long ago. Privately, she knew what it was. She could see it. She could feel it. She watched as the creatures walk…Posted 1 month ago
Aria jumped and slid down the roof, doing another small hop to get over the rain gutter, and landing on the soft, wet grass. She gently shook off some of the water, wet from chasing the monster through the sprinklers. Her least favorite part about fightin…Posted 2 months ago
Well the new pickles of the litter got along great with me, we played tag and price and code and dead and then we all bundled up in our garters and gilt and glit and flit and kilt and were in the bin of shipping in a nonce.

Today was an awesome day! !
You know that carton of pickles in the back of our fridge, the one on the roof? Well I was gnawing on the wrapper this morning when I finally broke through the plastic frieze packaging and got a mouthful of brine. …Posted 2 years ago
The small creature jumped up on her shoulder, faintly glowing, perfectly poised with its chest slightly puffed out.
Oh, that was actually a neat idea! The girl picked up her phone and typed a few notes, before setting it down and returning to homework.

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…Posted 10 days ago
The faintly glowing creature approached the girl sitting at her desk, frustratedly typing away on her keyboard. It leapt lightly onto the corner, peering at her work.
It sat, curling a dainty tail round itself, watching as she continued typing, jumbled me…Posted 1 month ago
