Stories

  1. Bitter Reminders

    A clever finger traced the top of the empty glass, vision blurred from the influence of alcohol. He’d tried drowning the pain, but it didn’t work. Instead, he sat now, drunk and depressed, head laid on the disgusting bar as silently he rued...

  2. Failure

    Hot, disgusting breath huffed over Willow’s face, making her shiver. The demon wielding said breath drew back, chuckling deviously. His gnarled ram horns weighed heavily upon his disgustingly colored head, coated in a greasy sheen like the rest o...

  3. Ruined

    A fiery exchange, a point is made but yet satisfaction but a word. Words once more tossed as grenades as a rebuttal is made. Pain like a snake bites in and flows through veins screams cease words falling flat. A peace offer stops considering what h...

  4. Ruthless

    December 14, 3003 Celestialite/Equalist Medical Camp, Unidos, Monolith Medical Expert/Equalist Military Doctor Nathanial Wright It is with great sorrow and disdain I write to you on this day. We have lost more than any generic army can bare. There was ...

  5. Light and Dark

    The shadowy figure of Void flickered, and the world shuddered as someone entered. Void suddenly slumped forwards, a moan passing his lips before the shadows making him up quickly went away, and once more the world shook. A woman with hair that was blea...

  6. Change

    October 17, 3003 Ecliptic Prison Camp, Nodding, Arcandia Private Axon Paine Ben, this is it. I’m out. Have you seen what they do to the Celestialites here? Look, I’m all for going back to “human nature” and whatever the hell we&...

  7. All I Want For Christmas

    In the small apartment, a tree of meager size decorated with whatever the pair of demigods could scrap together stood in the far corner, next to it the demigods themselves. The son of Erebus handed the daughter of Hades a small box poorly wrapped in be...

  8. Sides

    “Mark.” They knelt in a line, heads bowed, eyes staring hard at the scorched earth before them. A buff man with buzz-cut blond hair was moving up that line, checking wrists, necks, and forearms for their mark; the symbol tying them to a sid...

  9. Unlikely

    The shade slid into the shop with ease, held tight in his grasp a dagger crafted by none other than the young Irishmen himself. Why the blacksmith had taken Davey back was beyond the shadowy man. But after he was given a kill order and after the client...

  10. Partake or Die

    “With all due respect, sir, that is the stupidest idea I have ever heard.” The “sir” whipped around, stormy gray eyes ablaze. “Says the man in the suit with wires hooked up to himself, all targeting the brain stem. Of the ...

  11. Cue Evil Laugh

    MWUAHAH! I challenge you! Here are your words, friend. Pickles, Viable, Death GO.

  12. Utopia Fallen

    September 14, 3003 Celestialite Strong Hold, Baliix, Lennox Ship Master Tony Reynolds Captain Bessett, we cannot hold here much longer. The Ecliptic force here is stronger than we ever imagined. We have taken heavy casualties. The Equalists nearby have...

  13. House Divided

    I found a mirror today. I paused a brief moment to view the creature there. I was horrified. She was not pretty, nor was she skinny. She was not smart, nor was did she have the potential to be. She was not good, nor was she worthy of the kindness she t...

  14. Failures Changed

    Black wings pinned to his back, his heavy vocals echoed through the realm of Hades. Behind him, a girl, the daughter of Aphaea. His heart beat for her. And he was taking her back after a demon has stolen her away. “sic erit; haeserunt tenues in c...

  15. Screw the wall.

    You tell me day and night you want an ending That you hate yourself to the point you want to end it or to the point you want to make a whole in that wall. Which is better, one might ask the wall, I say, screw it. Screw it all. You toss your life away ...

  16. An Order.

  17. Together.

    The grass wept with dew, the sun streaking high with fiery colors. Their hands lay interlaced, a grip bound for eternity. Fellow soldiers stood alined with them, weapons in hand, stern looks upon their faces. They had not found their piece yet. Their p...

  18. Fallen Angel

    His blood, liquid silver, was a warm puddle beneath him. His legs were drawn close to his chest, his arms sprawled nearby. His wings were flexed in a weak attempt to move, the feathers splayed and in thin supply. His breaths came ragged, and with wide,...

  19. Mercy.

  20. Oddities Alike

    “Why is your blood silver?” Reeve sniffed again, running the warm washcloth over his face one more time. “Dunno.” Willow shifted her spot on Reeve’s bed, humming in low acknowledgment. Reeve had found out soon after saving...

  21. Or...

    Reeve sidestepped easily, sending the larger of the three men sprawling into the street. The second one, the one with the knife, charged at the demigod. Reeve, with a fluid motion, freed himself of his sweatshirt and expanded his wings. He didn’t...

  22. Unknown

    “You lied to me, didn’t you?” “It was not lying, son. I merely didn’t tell you everything.” “Then tell me now.” “Alright. What knowledge is it you require?” “Who…am I?” ̶...

  23. I Am Human

    “Help!” The cry made Reeve stop dead in his tracks, husky eyes flickering to where the sound had come from. And there she was. In the alley just to his right, was a girl. She couldn’t be but a year younger than him. She was of average...

  24. To Those Who Have Listened

    I’m sorry. I cannot put to words how much it means to me. But I also can’t put to words how goddamn sorry I am for forcing you to care. It’s selfish of me to even think for the slightest moment I should put me before everyone else. Se...

  25. Only Natural

    Rain patters gently on the rooftops, wind following swiftly and quietly alongside. The leaves hum low in agreement as they pass, intertwining into a steady rhythm so practiced by the world. Clouds hang low in the twilight tinted sky, blocking out the m...

  26. Doesn't Matter

    Reeve pulled his wings closer to his back, ruffling his feathers to keep them dry under his now soaking sweatshirt. He stared hard at the cold pavement below him, kicking a rock with the toe of his shoe and sending it skittering into the foot of a busi...

  27. Murder of an Illuminate Sort

    Reeve drew a breath, shut his eyes and forced himself inside. The light hit his eyes immediately, causing his headache to intensify. He grit his teeth and released his breath, clenching a fist and moving forward.He needed shadows. If he was seen here, ...

  28. Perhaps Not

    Reeve gripped the steaming cup before him tightly, enjoying the warmth the contents gave off. He pressed his wrists harder into the ceramic, and sighed. “It’s been a long time, Thanatos.” The man looked up, offering a small, almost devious lookin...

  29. Ridiculous

    Rain pattered quietly around him, the mixed sounds of the wild city combining with the natural rhythm to worsen Reeve’s headache. He shoved his way through mortals busy worrying about petty problems like work and love life while his mind wandered...

  30. Routine

    She did not speak. Reeve grimaced. “I’ve missed you.” An echoing laugh; hollow in nature. Reeve felt tears burn the corners of his husky eyes, but he swallowed them away. If this is what he got, it was at least better than nothing. &#...
