I have a picture on my desk of Toph (from Avatar: the Last Airbender) with Wolverine’s claws emerging from her hands. It’s there to remind me that I can always make my writing more awesome.

I no longer write stories on Ficly, but I had a great time while I was here. Thanks for all the great stories, the comments, and the collaboration.

  9. Brown Hoodie

    She had worn the brown hoodie before, but the sight of her wearing it at the beach reminded me of something from my childhood. At the time, I couldn’t say what. That night, in bed with her, it took me ten minutes to explain why I had called out &...

  10. Partial Transcript - Patient Interview

    Before we begin, I should say that I am aware that I am insane. That is why I am here. If you had seen the things I have seen, you would be insane, too. It’s funny, really. In some ways, I am glad I am insane. I would not want to know what I know...

  17. The Ultimate Chronicle - Part 40

  18. The Ultimate Chronicle - Part 37

    Time/Space Poe leaped and dove around the madly grinning figure of Roosevelt, who cried “Bully! Bully! Bully!” with every shot. The dark-eyed writer, though fueled by an alchemical mixture of Ultrabsinthe, was tiring quickly. Roosevelt grew...

  19. Free

    “Whoops, sorry man,” I say as the lamp tumbles to the ground and shatters. The sound is nearly drowned by the pumping music, the shouted conversations. The girl on my arm—oh hold on—Audrey, giggles drunkenly. Nate just laughs an...

  20. The Ultimate Chronicle - Part 33

    “Sic semper tyrannis, punc!” said Booth, and pulled the trigger. His Magma-Gauss gun hissed and Lincoln crumpled, a thin wisp of smoke rising from his head. Rasputin’s dark, mad eyes stabbed into the piggy little LEDs of Mecha-Hitler....

  21. The Ultimate Chronicle - Part 29

    “Lincoln.” Rasputin spat the word through cracked and blackened lips. The Mad Monk’s unblinking eyes were fixed on Lincoln’s goggles as if he could see through them into the great President’s mind. Lincoln reached for a bu...

  24. The Ultimate Chronicle - Part 23

    “Your time has run out, pasty man!” yelled Genghis as his unicorn spat a gout of flames at Poe. Poe dove out of the way in a flutter of black coattails and swiped the unicorn’s nose with an upward spin of a Ravenchuck. The unicorn bel...

  26. The Ultimate Chronicle - Part 20

  28. The Ultimate Chronicle - Part 17
