The Sea Cities

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

The cities gleamed in the luminous depth of the oceans, great domes with smaller domes within, bobbing above great tubes of filtration plants and hydroponic gardens – all emitting their own ghostly light down in dark waters. Modelled on jellyfish the outer domes were flexible, and could help propel the cities out of danger. Three […]

The Universe Incarnate

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

I dreamed that the world had managed a kind of immortality and two people lived the life span of the universe but though this seemed fantastic it wasn’t as it meant the whole universe could not move on to it’s next cycle – the problem? Cyclic-evolutionary rebirth – those two people were stuck in their […]

It’s All Wrong

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

They re-built the world with the fragments that they found but they did not know how the world was supposed to go. The things that had been were not anymore but they kind of remembered what they should be and so they moulded and squeezed themselves into forms that mimicked what was but were in […]

The Blank Doll

Friday, July 15th, 2016

This one is a little odd because it is actually just a memory thingy I wrote on my family/personal blog. So I’ll give you some context the mookie is like a raggy doll, I made one for my youngest out of socks. It is something made by you or for you or belongs in some […]

Andrelle

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Andrelle opened her eyes, the lids were heavy she felt that had been closed for a long time, such a very very long time, but now they were open and the world was a beautiful shimmer. Turquoise shafts of lights and rippled. The stair way seemed less defind than she remembered. Yawning she stretched, her […]

Pen the Dragon

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Once a Ruler thought it would be funny to hunt dragons so collected together a bunch of knights and solders and other such people. Then they built themselves many weapons including a load of rockets which they took to the local woods. A solider spotted a dragon nest so they set up the rocket launcher […]

Pearly Costa

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

I collected them, so many of them, little discs of shimmering colour, white and silver and mucky and lovely. In a little velvetine bag I found in my Nan’s button collection. They were, in truth, her buttons, and my aunt’s buttons and my great great aunt’s buttons and then my in-law’s buttons, but only the […]

The Fire Strome Festival

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

A letter from the Firestorm Archive sub. cat. Hackers, Makers, Shakers. For the attention of Aten NB – Jess. I shall start with the blazing tower, it loomed over us with its metal carcass exposed and in some places melting. It looked super sci-fi and alive. It was a sculpture and it was beautiful. Kali […]

Fish Paste Sandwiches

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

The Blue Cave was blue but at its opening, its mouth was a cat, it was pink. Pink Cat was glittery, a shiny sparkling iridescence and it gleamed. It waited, it had waited a long time, with its tail looped in a figure of eight. It would wait a while yet but the time was […]

Selorian: It was driven into him that he was the bad kid–a monster. He was neither; he was autistic & people were too scared to care. #storystarters It was driven into him that he was the bad kid–a monster. He was neither; he was autistic & people were too scared to care. Everybody that was […]
