Another one of the refugees from the old Ficlets site. See my old FICLETS HERE!
Not much to say about me really. I write. I play music. I write music. And I enjoy reading Ficly-Stories.

I’ve been writing since high-school – which was so long ago, we walked to school in 4ft of snow with no shoes on and bread at the store cost a penny… ok.. .25 cents.. but i was able to get 10 candies for 5 cents.

SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED AND WON NANOWRIMO 2008, by writing a novel over 60,000 words long called: Amethyst: Outer-Rim based on a ficlets series written here!

I’ve been bestowed the great honour of being part of the brother-and-sisterhood known as: The League of Awesome. Henceforth I shall bear the monicker: The Master of the +10 Guitar of Awesomeness!

Stories

  1. Witch's Valley pt 3

    The pickup careened around the 3235 just south of Leeville Louisiana. Bill handed a flask over to the black man, who snatched it from his fingers. “Gimme that, ehn? Befo’ you go an’ spill a perfectly good mouthful of my moonshine!R...

  2. Witch's Valley pt 2

    “Witch’s Valley is bullshit, Ezekial, and you know it!” “I know no such a thang, boy! You best just let it drop.” Zeke piloted the boat toward the town-docks while Harry tied a rope to the mooring. “It’s Frida...

  3. Witch's Valley

    Zeke steered his swamp boat up-river towards town; Harry poised on the bow. The morning paper flapping in the passing breeze. “Says here, they’re gonna re-open the South-Road near Witch’s Valley,” said the young man. Zeke, the o...

  4. Small Gifts

    Silvia and her son Ryan shivered. IT was cold in the north, in early fall. Ryan huddled next to his mother, “I’m cold Mommy!” “I know, Ry, I know. Me too. Why don’t we turn the stove on!” There came a rap at the door...

  5. Quarantine (Mature)

  6. Not Alone

    The metal box rang out as one of the men slammed a tool upon the top of his container. It cursed something in the tongue he’d yet been able to master; he understood only fragments of their language. He rushed his hands over the sides of his head ...

  7. The Box

    A sliver of light was his only comrade as he sat in the darkness of the box. He felt fear. Fear of what was outside. Fear of being alone. Fear of the darkness; clinging to that one sliver of sunlight that met with him every morning for the last 3 days....

  8. Resistance Retreat

    “We can’t leave!” I shouted, “everytime you move back they gain a victory!” Vlad tapped my shoulder, “You can’t speak to a Chosen like that, Kel!” “She stopped being a Chosen the minute she sneaked ...

  9. Corporate Espionage.

    Ainsley’s face turned to frustration, “He did it again!” she said to Tommy, her best friend this week. Ainsley was 8, and Tommy was ONLY 7. He was just a KID. But she liked him. She looked down at her table. One jug of iced tea, a sta...

  10. Dancing

    Alex slammed the door open and ran into the house as if the air itself, outside, was aflame. “Ho-hold it there, mister,” his mother, Jessica, shouted. The 8 year old skidded to a stop. “What are you doing rushing through the door lik...

  11. Jasper

    “Don’t get us wrong,” Ben said, “We are aware of each other,” “Who is we, Benjamin?” Dr. Susan Leffler asked. “This is Jasper, doc! And I’m not certain I like your line of questioning,” “...

  12. Best of Friends

    “Did you see that?” Corrine asked pointing up at the sky at a canopy of stars. “Me? no!” Julian answered. “Whaddya mean, “me”? who else would i be talking to?" she had that look. You know, the look of: ...

  13. Just when you thought ...

    June 12, 2020 You thought you knew me. But you didn’t. You didn’t know me. You didn’t even take the time to try. I made the overtures. I tried the one liners. I attempted every, single, gods-damned bit of poetry to grab your attention...

  14. It Can't be!

    “It can’t be!” Jordan screamed. “I’m telling you, it is what it is!” Pat shouted over the ruckus. There was an explosion. A fiery escapade that lit up the night sky making the clouds glow. “This was not how it ...

  15. The Underground

    Liz looked sad. Her green eyes spoke volumes, an absent finger twirling her long straight red hair. I stood silent, patiently waiting a reply. Vlad broke in, “What’s happened?” “You asked how many we were,” Liz said, lips ...

  16. Emergency.

    “Where the hell is it!” Mark shouted. “Right there beside the capiork!” Al replied. “THE WHAT?” “The Capiork, beside the Pyrene Squeeze lever. Take hold of it and give a firm tug, the bujumnuts will fall into p...

  17. Writing on the Walls

    The room smelled of burning candles, old books and mildew. The library was brightly lit, but only with the powers of tiny flames upon hundreds of candles place in every nook and cranny. There were dozens of others here, their faces covered in soot, eac...

  18. A New Reality

    “You know,” Vlad turned, “If we just went back and told them we were lost, I’m sure they’ll understand,” The fiery haired girl shook her head, “It’s too late for that now,” A man called in a hoarse ...

  19. Away from Archons

    “What do you know of The Library?” said the girl, she could not have been 5 feet tall. Strokes of red hair escaped the cowl that hid her face from me. “My mother spoke of it when i was a kid,” i answered. “We have to move!...

  20. The Order of Scholars

    Vlad clung to my side as we ran among the dirt of the ruins. Where were we going? I hadn’t a clue. I ran where my legs took me, and never looked beyond what was before me, clutching the scrolls I’d taken from a box my mother had left for me...

  21. Cuspis Haud Reverto.

    Vlad stared at the 4 symbols I’d drawn into the dirt, and for a moment he stood fascinated. But those letters became arachnids and he stomped them all away in a puff of dust and dirt, “Are you trying to get us killed?” “No, don...

  22. Scriptura Interdico

    “What are we doing here, Kel,” Vlad asked me. “Have you ever wondered, who they were? Where the symbols originated,” I replied. “Not this again; YOU KNOW this is forbidden. We can be thrown in the stockade for this –...

  23. The Darkness In My Silence

    I saw colors in harmony. Chaos destroyed the colors, the images, the memories that I saw. Memories for me were like photographs, moments frozen in place never to be smote by time. Others did not understand. I did not speak; for to verbalize such beauti...

  24. Out On The Wire

    Jason spun on a heel, “Elsha,” “Cap’n” “Arm the Wire. I hope your fingers are ready to hop,” “Cap’n, they were born ready. Speak the words, and I put ’em out on the wire, ricky-tick!” &#...

  25. The Light Of Sound

    Harold cringed and sunk back and away from the doctor. Nurses, attendants, interns and med-tech gathered about him, and gawked, and all he could do was press his palms over his ears and cower. His mouth opened, and to his horror a slurring horrid soun...

  26. Following The North Star

    Captain Jason eyed the bridge and pointed to ALRO, “Man the wheel, mister,” “Aye, Cap! Heading?” “Anywhere from here, lest the SS AOL find us and scuttle us where we sail,” THX quipped. The captain nodded, “Ind...

  27. My First - Pt. 8

    It was a warm night, and at first, we walked in silence. I was happy, proud even, just to be walking next to her. “Tell me something,” I asked. “Shoot,” “Have you ever .. you know, kissed .. somebody before?” “...

  28. My First - Pt. 7

    We talked. We laughed. We did everything that anonymous couples did in a cheesy diner milkshake shop did. And I wasn’t a dork. I started to realize that I could tell Andrea anything. ANYTHING. She didn’t think i was an idiot because there w...

  29. My First - Pt 6

    Did I just say that out loud? I know I was thinking it. But did my mouth actually say it? A smile spread over Andrea’s face, and she giggled, “Thank you Eric. You aren’t so bad yourself. Very handsome actually in that shirt.” &#...

  30. My First - Pt. 5

    “Are you alright?” Andrea laughed, “relax. It’s just me, Eric,” “Just you,” he laughed, and nodded, “I know. I know. I get so nervous all the time. I’m not, you know… used to..” i looked...
