What holds them together #1

So just a little foreword before we start. I took a little break there for a while, mainly because I went to Japan and had a good old time there. Follow me on Instagram (should be @Harriotskelli on everything if not, then Harriot Skellington) if you want pictures (also of my cat and maybe other […]

Knarrian’s hesitation

“Flukia! Flukia wake up!” Abhain lightly shook her arm as she began to rouse. “I’m awake, barely. How long have we been out?” Flukia slowly opened her eyes. “I don’t know, all of the clocks have stopped.” “Their magic is gone, all enchantments will be.” “The people…”  Abhain fell out of his kneeling position as […]

I dunno, A Taidan thing

Hyperspace transit isn’t the only way to travel. Obviously I could have just as easily fired up my own hyperspace drive to fly to the Taidan system. It just would have taken me a few months even with the fastest drive on the market.   Top speed for a hyperspace drive is relative in the […]

Sari leaned on the building on the other side of the alley. She patted down the pockets of the coat she was wearing looking for something. It was a men’s small in a dark grey, Cherise was who had initially taken her clothes shopping and had suggested male clothes for more pockets. Sari was very […]

Space police in space

They say that fifty percent of all humans are trapped in the Matrix. Not trapped in the, they can’t get out, kind of way. Just in the, they don’t want to leave, kind of way. The Matrix is virtual world, they say it was named from an old movie but it’s really from something even […]

“Do you normally walk to work like that? You’ll destroy someone’s personality.” Hank asked. “Just having a sensitive day. It’s not a permanent effect.” Sari looked but did not sound apologetic. “In most circumstances. But humans have a complex psychology, a single moment of that could irreparably damage someone’s self image.” “If their image was […]

“What am I doing here?” Charlie asked himself. The driver couldn’t hear him and had stated as much when she picked him up. There was supposed to be a phone call coming through to him that was apparently classified. The driver didn’t appear to be military but something about her demeanor made Charlie both fear […]

Not Completely Soulless 2

The wind blew an icy chill over Sari. Her skin responded by popping up with some goosebumps. This reminded her to do a little shiver, rub her arms in a vain attempt to warm herself back up.   Just in case someone was watching.   She had just stepped out of her apartment building into […]

The wizard of Coz

I always loved taking the subway, the cool clean Oz of the recyclers, the whooshing sound of the water in and out of the airlock at each station. I haven’t been on one since I was a child. My mother worked at the government building in the centre of the city, far from the Agropolis […]

Not completely soulless

Sari lifted her feet off of her desk and swung herself around on her chair. The alarm on her phone had started it’s morning mating call. She switched it off and turned back to what she was doing.   The game she was playing pulsed blue and grey light over her. Her research into this […]
