I’m currently unemployed, but enjoying the extra time I have. Finding this website has really allowed me to see the world differently, to express ideas with the fewest words possible. I hope that this place has changed you as much as it has changed me…

  1. 824 Speaks

  2. Prisoner No. 824

    Dimly lit cells, housing all sorts of people. Prison guards, armed to the teeth, awaiting any suspicious move. This place was not supposed to exist, and yet here he was, looking for the right candidate. Mr. Devoe, former Col. Devoe, was a man on a miss...

  4. Catching Up

  5. From the Inside...

  8. A Second Look

    Ezequiel had been ready, since 6 a.m., since yesterday.The news had not been a shocked to him, yet there were so many questions left to be answered. Why Tyler? The first one and the most urgent.They had both been there, in the quarantine zone. Both of...

  9. Rope Climbing and other Exercises...pt.2

    “So I’m the reason” she said, dejectedly. He looked down, it felt odd, to disappoint a being that did not exist, but he could not deny what he felt.He looked at her, as she pull her knees to her chin, sitting very guarded.All he could...

  11. Cause of Me?

    “What do you mean, you’re stuck in here cause of me?” she asked, infinitely curious. Every single emotion was genuine.She really didn’t know.Things weren’t so simple anymore.Whatever he had been convinced of, was no longer...

  12. Funny Little Things

    He did his tie, taking his time. He didn’t have that much practice at it.Everything seemed so mechanical, the way he received the news, his reaction, and the day after.All the arrangements had already been made, months ago.Despite being prepared...

  13. The Woman Standing Across From Him

  14. The Ward

    Walls of white and empty heads, with eyes as dead as their spirits.This place was the end of the line, when you can no longer hide it.They had come for him a few days ago.Before this madness, his time was nearly over.He’d been given 4 years to fi...

  15. Time to Go, Mr. Tyler

    “You said the world’s about to change? What did you mean by that?” Marshall walked at his side, their destination unknown.The rain, it had a most peculiar way of bending the light, of creating shapes that weren’t really there. &...

  16. Good Hope

    “Your empire has never heard of trade, how is that possible?” she asked. The escort said nothing. His job was only to guide her through the fog safely. Nothing more. Soon, it began to dissipate. At a distance, another man, dressed in fine c...

  17. A World of Conspiracy

    “What do you mean, you have an antidote?” He finished his meal, left nothing but an expensive dinner plate.He wiped his mouth off with a linen cloth.Replied, “Is that so hard to believe, Mr.Tyler, this is a world full of conspiracies...

  18. On a Park Bench

    Out the elevator, he crossed the lobby, saw no one behind the desk.He walked with no sense of direction. Six months. That had been the length of his quarantine. No time for that now. Made it out the door, into the rain.An open field, what did that mean...

  19. Steal My Mind?

    “What do you mean, steal my mind?” he asked.The question was redundant.He knew the full meaning of those words.They seemed almost too good to be true.To simply walk away and return as someone else, in his fragmented mind, this was true blis...

  20. The Wanderer Follows...

    They didn’t know what woke him up. Whatever it had been, must have been powerful. It all felt so unreal, yet the time, his appearance, it was all true. He had been in a coma for 3 months. He made it through his physical without a hitch. No linger...

  21. Mr. Marshall

    It had been on his mind for months. Festering, growing with every ache, every ounce of pain and desire. Tyler wanted nothing more than to leave this world, no matter what the cost. This idea had come to define him, now he was the living dead, waiting g...

  22. Supplies...and the girl...part 1

    A few days later after the ‘heart beat’ incident, everyone was scared. It wasn’t just the plague. The wild animals who were now more vicious than ever. They were being hunted. It was dawn when they ran into him. “Need some help,...

  23. Mr. Tyler

    “Imagine yourself for a moment…as you were before, Mr. Tyler” There was a silence. He could hear the voice in the room, yet there was silence. His eyes were failing. His time running out. The man before us, in desperate need for a sol...

  24. To a Strange Land

    The horses stopped suddenly. There it was the limit. The driver was wise. He knew not to test the limits of legend. “Ma’am, we’re at the outskirts of the empire, we need to request an audience before we can proceed” She nodded. ...

  25. 77th Thunder...pt.3

    3 hours in. No progress. Tremendous casualties. The sound of armor outside. Firefights inside every still standing structure, and Sarah in the middle of it all. Not the first time they’ve been cornered. In the 7 months and 29 days she’d b...

  26. Dancing Through the Streets...

    He put on his headphones. Dressed in a shiny black suit, polished shoes, and slicked hair, Ty was ready. “You got this?” asked his driver. Didn’t answer. He stepped out. Started dancing. Focused only the movements of his body which we...

  27. Washing Up Ashore

    He sat on a massive boulder as the storm developed. Watching something unnatural, something only a few privileged have witnessed. It ended as quickly as it began, with a man washing up ashore. He stood and slowly walked out of the surf. He got up and ...

  28. The New Progenitors

    A long day. Time to wait. Nothing special about this place just yet. He made a bonfire. His companions in just a few days. He didn’t understand the mechanics of how he’d gotten here, but he would be alone for too long. This beach was clean,...

  29. His Arrival

    The sun was bright. The air, unfiltered, smelled like the ocean. That’s where he turned up. The ocean. He was knee high in the surf. His bag, heavy, his clothes, durable. Meant to last ages. It wasn’t how he imagined it. There were no ru...

  30. The Sky People... part 2

    “Made contact against enemy drones, information in tow, require assistance!” “What is your location?” her radio chirped. “Can’t triangulate, encountered heavy enemy resistance, I repeat, mission was successful, requ...
