The Cavern – Part 8

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

We moved our invalid, who really was very ill by this point, I was slightly surprised that the medic had not euthanized him but then I thought about her standing there in the tunnel awaiting our return with only a corpse for company and could see why she had not. The fact that none of […]

That Darn Darn Fish – Part 1

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Melony was a fisher woman, but before you start conjuring up images of old, pickled, rolly polly ladies that smell worse than a cat litter tray in high summer, let me explain that she was 15, lean and lithe and full of a dark and powerful grace. She would dive from the little platform at […]

The Cavern – Part 7

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

I sat with mug of stim that someone had gotten for me and the other two, I don’t think any of us were actually drinking the stuff verses just hugging the mugs for the minute amount of comfort it was giving us. I was awaiting the supplies from my mother, the council seemed to have […]

The Cavern – Part 6

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

‘We need to get this hydraulics in place to hold the ceiling up,’ snapped my old lecturer. I nodded dumbly and got out of the way whilst they began to prepare the area, the medic took me aside. ‘I may have to euthanaes, you realise – are any of them going to object?’ she gestured […]

The Cavern – Part 5

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

It took two days to put the hybridised equipment together and at every moment of it we worried we would blow the thing up, it took four units – one of my prototype and three of the echo locators – this was not what we had hoped for but much better than we had expected. […]

The Godex

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

The God was insane, it had been insane a long time, the pain inside it’s beign grew and pulsed and it wanted annilation, had been made for such. Made for a purpose – what had it been? There had been a man, one who spoke soothingly and stroacked it to life, it remembered the world […]

The Cavern – Part 3

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

All the council were watching me, as if I could refuse, as if I would, then I remembered that Elder Cantor had been an eminent explorer. ‘Really but Cantor…’ ‘Is old,’ Cantor replied, ‘we need the younglings to help us out of this and I have no idea how the Cho-Lo’s work were as we […]

The Cavern – Part 2

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

I had blankets and cloths mainly in my crates, there was some food but not much as it had been very heavy, I worried seeing the supplies that had been brought in that they would be assuming people would bring food with them. The sled would be the base of my bed, the foam matting […]

The Cavern – Part 1

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

It was cold and dank at the edge of the cave and yet they still drove us onwards, metal chain ladders with rungs only wide enough for one foot at a time were swung over the edge. The pit lead down to a great open chamber and they had allowed us 24 hours to pack. […]

The Sea Farm

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Angular stared around the vast room, it was like nothing she had ever seen before, her father was crying and laughing and shaking the aid workers hand. The man was grinning, ‘I’m glad you like it! You will be sharing this complex with four other families I’m afraid so you might feel a bit cramped.’ […]
