Dead Moon

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Sometimes the myths rise up from the depths of memory and appear real and concrete for moments that will stand to focus time and reset the world once more. Each time the tale is told differently, good becomes bad and bad becomes benevolent and the old magic twists itself around altering endings and shifting meaning […]

Let It Snow

Friday, December 5th, 2014

A soft darkness has enveloped the sky, pearlised clouds are twisting around themselves, fluorescing and threatening, it is almost time for the End Time to begin. The cold wastes that these lands will become will be beautiful and softened once more. No more harsh corners or ugly scars, the snow will cover all of that, […]

Home Made

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Bio hacking had been a thing for maybe 30 years, he’d mixed it in with the 3D printing tech he had. He had read about wetware and prosthetics and he had started the project. It wouldn’t be her, it never could be her. He had her hair, had gotten hold of an old blood sample […]

The Dark Wind

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

The dark wind was blowing in from the North, it was thick with ice crystals and death. There was no where to go, the pyramid was all they had and the wind was already howling around it’s sides. “Quick inside!” Aten ordered pointing with webbed fingers, Eiru related the command and the stockier land apes […]

Grave Junction

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

The oil dark bird with matt black beak and shining eyes landed on the headstone, now slumped wonky into the subsiding ground. The corpses angels that had been set to guard had rotted away, their graves were collapsing and nature was taking back that which it had so briefly let the people of this world […]

Tired Eyes

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

The tears had tired her eyes, she looked at the devastation, the limbs and blood scattered across the floor of the church. It had been such a good plan, but it turned out the old legends had been wrong, so very very wrong. Her fingers were sticky with gore and she tried to scrub it […]

Our Lady of Virtue

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

The Warrior Monks had set out on a mission, to sack the holy lands and return the sacred texts to The Holy Roman Empire, but then they had seen the incursion of Heresy, the Christians who weren’t, the ones so like the Prophet Worshipers and the Christ Killers. There was no room for the Orthodox […]

Nail Vanish

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Saskia looked down at her long acrylic nails and smiled, they were a work of art, pure and simple, the purple gleamed and faded to a lavender and then a deep blue, on one nail a blue cat arched with green gem eyes and on another there was a shadow suggestion of a crooked castle. […]

Mel

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

The Moon was bright and huge in the sky, an orb of imperfection and desire, Mel laughed in pure joy, a sound that rarely passed her lips, as she skipped out of the door to follow the liquid silver light across the landscape. Her black taffeta dress, hung around her emaciated frame and flowed in […]

The Map

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

The pumpkin sat mouldering on the door step, it had been a carving of extreme beauty, it had shown a celestial skyscape with each pin prick etched star a different depth so that it would glow with the correct intensity. Now it was slumped and slimy and in some places furry. Fake spider webs were […]
