Not much to say, really, just another guy who writes a bit.

Stories

  1. Let's Get Dangerous

    Before long, they were at the aforementioned building. Or rather, near it, in order that they remain unnoticed. The tunnels grew more heavily traveled as they approached the computer science department, and the noise of work was heavy in the air. ̶...

  2. Now What?

    “So you pulled off this trick to get ahold of me? Why didn’t you just tell me who you were at the gas station, you big dork! If that jammer hadn’t worked, or had stopped working, I could have…” she trailed off. “I...

  3. Ready, Set...

    They took up tactical positions, spreading out so that each angle of approach could be defended. James and Lisa stood side-by-side, weapons drawn, facing back the way they came, flanked by Sera on one side and Fur on the other. “Hold fire until w...

  4. Going Under

    “I’m a Vespa…” Sera seethed over her new, albeit temporary, body. “You needed to be able to fit in the tunnels and they thought a scooter would be less noticeable on campus.” James said, trying to calm his sister dow...

  5. Red Giant

    “You’re lightyears ahead of anything I can get ahold of, Star, so I’m afraid I can’t give you as much processing power as you have in your real body, even using the whole in-house network as a Beowulf,” Bran’s voice ...

  6. Heart to Heart

    “I sort of got that feeling myself. But you’ve only given me half an answer there. You’re as much a part of this as he is, you know…” she replied in a deadpan. “I’m replaceable. If it wasn’t me it would h...

  7. Parting Ways

    “Bullshit! You sound like you know enough to think you know how we operate, but you have no clue.” she grumbled. “Oh, I wouldn’t be so sure I don’t know how you operate, some of my people have worked with you before.”...

  8. Getting the Hang of It

    The smirk on Sera’s face was unmistakable even on a mechanical face. Fur righted himself, looking outright embarassed, and glanced to Lisa, who just nodded. He once more pressed his attack, stepping into combat more carefully this time. Sera fell...

  9. Walk like a... Truck?

    The truck continued to tremble, and then, as the sound played, the truck suddenly became a heap of uncoordinated robot parts. “You know, you could have warned me it was that…” Sera mumbled. “Undignified?” Lisa guessed R...

  10. Taken For A Ride

    “Take that thing out or I’ll-.” she warned. “Or you’ll what, play Styx? You’ve got nothing to work with, I’ve severed your controls. You are well and truly stuck.” he chuckled, and accelerated. “Min...

  11. Intuitive

    James had refused to hear any more than that, and shortly later, they were back at the paved section of the track, and Sera and Fur were lined up parallel at the start line, James at Fur’s wheel, with Lisa at Sera’s. Fur, being a Lotus Elis...

  12. Wandering, Wondering

    “But why would they want to know about the steam tunnels?” James asked, wrestling the wheel over to navigate a dip filled with sand. “Don’t ask me, you’re the one who interns at the university IT department, you should kno...

  13. Going For A Spin

    He really tried to keep a straight face, but James was never the best at poker, and had to bite his lip to avoid a fit of giggles as they pulled up once the course was completed. Sera coming to a stop within a few feet of him was slightly unnerving, bu...

  14. More Lessons

    He nodded, looking thoughtful, “I guess that makes sense, sort of, since a turbine will run on anything that’ll burn. I… Uh, I’m not all that certain I want to hear any more about it, though.” “Good, I didn’t w...

  15. Learning to Walk

    “What, and miss the chance to make themselves look like even bigger asses?” Lisa said, rolling her eyes. “Bro… those nanobots, they can be mixed in with just about any injection, so long as there’s enough of the liquid to ...

  16. One Step Closer

    There comes a time when every shy geek must break, and these times are frequently heralded by inspired, polysyllabic speeches in the fashion of Jean-Luc Picard, had he spent more quality time with Leonard H. McCoy. James, for one, had seen more than en...

  17. No Disassemble!

    “Congratulations, I’m surprised,” James deadpanned as he took it all in, noting makes and models for future reference. “This kind of tech isn’t even supposed to exist yet.” “There are more things in heaven and ...

  18. Decisions

    James looked to Sera. “You’re the one who’s got the most at stake here, sis, I’d say that it’s your choice.” “Way I see it, we’ve got no choice, we go with Lisa here,” she growled. “If we try ...

  19. Realization

    Sera growled. “Yeah, they had all the first responders on the force take some extra booster flu shot, lot of good it’s going to do me now.” “Sis, unless I miss my guess, that shot is probably the reason you’re still talkin...

  20. Lifelong Ambition

    Immediately, his first thought was police, but the car was too small and too sleek. Area police drove Dodge Chargers, and the state troopers drove Chevy Caprice PPVs. Knowing this, he put his foot to the floor. “Sis, I’m… I’m so...

  21. Demands

    James walked around and got in the driver’s seat again, then pulled out onto the road. “Okay, I’d say the first thing we do is put some distance between us and, well, everything we’ve ever known. They’re obviously looking ...

  22. Transformation

    “Right now? Put as much distance between the body in that alley and us as possible,” Sera said. “I think I have an even better idea,” James said, and turned a corner. “I think the first thing that we need to do is change y...

  23. Too Stubborn to Die

    The driver had shown him what happened to Sera after he shoved her in the trunk, and he had panicked. The handcuffs were the only thing recognizable, the rest being an unidentifiable mess of dissolving bone and reddish goo. “Cooperate, or that...
