Pantheon – Chapter 1 – Gaia

Black knew exactly what he was doing. Stealing wasn’t just about taking stuff. It was about keeping it.
Headphones dangled to the floor as he retracted his arm from an unfamiliar backpack. He eyed the slender metallic device and peeled the stupid rubber, fanart-crested cover from the white plastic and glass.
“Nerd.” Black stomped on the green and gold-foiled image of the triple-triangles for good measure. He put it out like a cigarette. And he beheld his prize.

Copperblossom – Chapter One – Pipes and Propositions

“I have to shoot The Chairman!” Paisley’s own words clanked about in her head, like loose gears falling out of place and stealing her attention.

She leapt over the galvanized railing, one hand on it pushing her over. It wasn’t a high leap for her, but she was short, really short and worried her skirt would snag. It didn’t.

Paisley gripped her photometer in the other hand and held it high.

Homunculus and The Cat – Chapter I

This story begins with the death of the cat. This particular feline perished, not peculiarly, by way of curiosity. It was a young cat, barely a year old, by any scale. She had an above average intelligence. Specifically one that afforded her a heightened awareness of danger as she pounced Japanese death, right in its putrid, sinewy face.

Pantheon – Chapter 2: Beyond the Curtains

Yuki extinguished whatever light it was that he was carrying. Not a cell phone. And he led Black through the archway into utter darkness. Black heard the creak of an old door, reminding him of horror movies and special investigative reports of suburban homicide.

Homunculus and the Cat – Chapter IV

“Enough about dying already,” Tyro started. “It’s a personal question. You shouldn’t even be asking her in the first place.” Tyro felt hypocritical scolding the ship’s cook. But that was nothing next to the self-righteousness of trying to tell the cat to be more careful with that kind of information. He asked when they first met. But, he had just saved her life. It was his shallow justification.

The Witherist – Chapter 1: Epoch

The Nara, like the withering world behind her, pined for stable ground. Her beaten broken shredded sails wallowed in the swells of the eastern shore. A cheery salty-fresh gale prodded her hull and tugged at her splintered mast. Like a small child, innocent and fickle, even the wind eventually gave in to the Nara’s despair and found some gulls to tease, leaving the ship to scatter its own remains among the rocks of the new world.

The Bloodletter’s Star: Chapter 1

Zian was next. All the people behind him looked as nervous as he felt while watching the monks scurry around the place carrying bloodsticks. Each monk had a fleam chained to his belt. They jingled, like keys on a ring. One of them was going to open his skin.

Homunculus and the Cat – Query 6.5

In most mythologies the Gods created man. But what if mortals could fashion artificial life in the same manner? And what if that life refused to remain subordinate?

Since antiquity, great thinkers and innovators have used alchemy to bring to life biological A.I. called homunculi. And now the homunculi want equality.

Steampunks: consider yourselves punked! (excerpt from Copperblossom)

The day was ordinary; the chemicals were not. Paisley Swiftwater had just publicly shot a dozen or so people out on the round. With her lenses she set ablaze a handful of dried up copperblossoms on parliament’s front lawn, and filled her cans with acid she had gotten from a man named Lye.

nano progress is back on!

so…my word count has been crawling slower than a slug in the freezer, but i’ve been working my butt off!

the good news is creativity can be forced, “writers block” can be kung fu-ed in the neck and brutally decapitated like a Quentin Tarantino movie.

Chapter XI (nanowrimo day 1, 12-3am)

The cat was perched lazily atop the bowsprit, her favorite part of a boat, and considered death. She had only died twice, but she was beginning to enjoy it. It felt good. She wondered how it would compare to sex.

She couldn’t ask anyone of course, as she didn’t know anyone who fit the criteria of being, or having recently been deceased. She considered finding a ghost, spirit or perhaps another one of her kind, an Eneddi. She wasn’t even sure why she compared it to sex, only it seemed that humans enjoyed it and she enjoyed dying. She had never tried the other. She was still just a kitten after all.

Inanna and the Me

Inanna didn’t sweat if she didn’t want to. Though she considered perspiration for a moment as means of cooling the mortal form she wore. She thought better of it. Utu, her brother, sun god of the Sumerians was tempting her. The sand was crisp and abrasive against her toes. It burned at her earthly skin. She liked the pain. It felt like condensed passion. Hurt, heat and dehydration were exotic.
