  1. Intro to Physics

    Professor Benning glanced up from his notes. He thought perhaps one of the fluorescent lights overhead had burned out in a brilliant last gasp. Most of the students were staring out the lecture hall windows. He cleared his throat, trying to draw their ...

  2. The Ruins of Heaven

    Tears brimmed her eyes as she surveyed the graceful spires, domes and towers of Honor, and she gripped the marble banister as dread wracked her frail form. All would be laid waste by the grim god that brooded over his prey, growing nearer by the night....
