Stories

  1. The Duke's Mind-Music

    “You’re gonna hate me for this but it’s for your own good. And it’s for the good of everyone else here. You’re going to be a hero, but I have orders first.” He says. My brain feels exhausted and so I struggle to focu...

  2. The Aura: Experimenting

    John narrowed his eyes, disbelieving. Where am I? is this a hoax? Am I a hostage? Am I just dreaming? Should I wake up? Am I under drugs? Her aura was the same recognizable blue. Impossibly blue. They knew what he was, but did they know what he could s...

  3. Audrey G. Burnett: Trapped

    Audrey snapped her mouth shut as her blood slowly began to boil. Considered a danger? Exotic? Really? She furiously sketched giant dragonfly-like wings on her ornithopter as she fumed. The last thing she had wanted was to be given attention as a freak ...

  4. Airships: Warnings

    Elletra ran into Hawkeye as she rounded a corner. “Elletra! What’s wrong? Are we being boarded again?” Hawkeye asked, his hands instinctively holding her steady as the ship violently turned to port. “We’re responding to a ...

  5. Palace Of Mirrors: Four Years Later...

    “Desmia!” Cecilia hissed from the other side of the cavernous room. Desmia arches an eyebrow and rushes over to where Cecilia is hiding behind a pillar, “Cecilia? What’s wrong?” Cecilia was smiling mirthlessly, “Harp...

  6. The Aura: Cryptic Answers

    “You up for a chat?” Paula asked, walking into the hospital room after the doctors had checked on John. They had run a million tests and John was starting to get the eerie feeling of being a lab rat. “I’ve been waiting for someo...

  7. The Aura: Week and a Half

    “Would have never agreed to marry me after what my father said to him and so-” John groaned softly. His head pounded like he had the worst hangover in the history of alcoholic beverages. “John? You coming around, buddy?” That sa...

  8. The Lady Temptation

    Another weary traveler stumbles through the broken, rusty gates that creak in the slight breeze. She awakens with a gasp. The exhausted man looks up scanning the overgrown, wild hedge maze before him. He groans in frustration. She sees him on the scree...

  9. The Aura: Intentions & Thoughts

    The woman woke up feeling like she had been run over by a freight train. She glanced down and noticed a big bloody bandage dangerously close to where her heart was. She looked around and realized she was on a stretcher in the back of a van. She tried t...

  10. Dora The Explorer: All Grown Up

    The young woman trudged up the hill with her pet spider-monkey. “You sure you read that map, right?” She groaned at her red-booted monkey. “Well, I wouldn’t be a very good breakthrough in science if I couldn’t read a simpl...

  11. The Aura: Hoodwinked

    “Alright, people step aside.” The one with the black-ish aura barked out as the other EMT was pulling a stretcher towards John. Maybe they could help me. Perhaps the doctors knew that lightning made you hallucinate colors & made you hea...

  12. Airships: On To The Next Crisis

    Elletra hopped off the table and popped her joints, stretching, “Well, then I suppose I should go find out where I’m heading.” Hawkeye didn’t want her to go but said nothing as she sauntered over to the door. He couldn’t h...

  13. Prisoner of Aquaphobia

    I am afraid of water. Of giant expanses of dihydrogen monoxide that could bury you alive without a moment’s hesitation. I am scared of the mere thought of being surrounded by something that is poison to my lungs. I have nightmares of perishing in...

  14. Audrey G. Burnett: Popular Yet Oblivious

    “You’d think that after a year anda half they would get it that I am absolutely miserable here.” Audrey huffed as she began sketching an idea for her own ornithopter that she hoped to build one day. Crow snorted, “You’re n...

  15. Airships: Two Years in Two Minutes

    Elletra shrugged, “What I do best. Stay out of trouble… badly.” Hawkeye laughed, “You’re not going to give me specifics?” “I’ll make you a trade. You tell me about the Folds and I’ll give you a summ...

  16. Airships: All Cards on the Table

    Elletra bit her lip before saying, “That isn’t what I was getting at. I know it would probably take an army to be able to touch your father. I just- When I first saw you. A lot of things I had buried came cascading back. I- don’t know...

  17. New Tortuga: The Captains' Council

    “I’ll see you guys later.” Hannah muttered and ran up the street to her house where her mother was waiting impatiently. Hannah always thought her mother was a little out-of-date with her outfit. Her mother wore a black eye-patch on he...

  18. Airships: Shell-shocked

    Elletra wanted to strangle him for his disinterest and nonchalance about his father. But, it wasn’t his fault, she supposed. He had been raised to have as few dealings with his father as possible. Elletra took in a deep breath to lock away the ol...

  19. Airships: Gun-Powder 101

    Elletra arched an eyebrow, “What is this?” “First of all, do you know what the ingredients are in gunpowder?” Hawkeye’s tone of voice sounded confident. Elletra figured he knew everything there was to know about the subjec...

  20. Airships: More Puzzle Pieces

    Elletra’s mind was a train wreck of thoughts. Where did he get that? Does he know who made it? Would his father tell him? Is he really oblivious? Is this all a setup? A trap? No, his father wouldn’t tell him. His father doesn’t trust ...

  21. The Aura: Touch

    John blinked a couple times staring at his cat. He imagined it. Of course he did. He kept looking at the glowing rainbow of halos around people’s heads as they crowded by him. “Are you alright!?” Said a woman by him. She had the brigh...

  22. The Duke's Friend or Foe?

    Deverel quickly says, “I just need to tell you that you have to do everything in your power to not get sold today. I’m part of an organization that sent me here to scout the area. I will be sold today. We are working on getting evidence to ...

  23. Airships: Drained Defenses

    The fight had been drained out of her by the nightmare but she still managed to narrow her eyes in annoyance. “What did I say?” Hawkeye hesitated for a full minute, “You were mumbling. I didn’t understand.” Elletra sighed ...

  24. Remains

    “Do you think there will be any remains?” The 18-year-old boy sucked in a shaky breath, “No.” “There have to be some pieces left!” The youngest of the three stamped her foot for effect. “You can see. Does it ev...

  25. New Developments

    As soon as the boy left, Vashda strolled out from behind a stone pillar. Mai smothered her surprise with a smile as she walked off to her “office”. “Do you think they’ll back off?” Vashda asked, her gait matching Mai’...

  26. Airships: An Almost Night Terror

    When she finally came to, she was tied to a chair in a large and grand office. Sitting across from her on a couch was the man she had come to hate. He was reading a horticulture encyclopedia. “Ah, Miss Fiamma. We finally meet.” The man̵...

  27. Lessons At The Academy: Among the Ranks

    Daffyd finally caught his breath and got a good look at his rescuers. The two boys were identical twins with the exception that one had a small silver piercing. They both had blonde hair and crystal blue eyes & judging by their build, they were mos...

  28. Audrey G. Burnett: Feeling Understood

    “What’s your most recent sketch?” Crow asked as Elletra sat cross-legged on the floor with her warped and worn book and a cloth sack full of colored pencils. “Serenity’s ornithopter.” “The one with the green wi...

  29. Airships: Prey and Predator

    Elletra remembered how she had screamed at the night sky and how her blood boiled as she watched more and more people succumb to either the sickness or to the temptation of going to the factory. Elletra vowed revenge. She began doing research on the ma...

  30. Mindless Lack of Focus

    I am having trouble keeping my thoughts straight I can’t sleep and I don’t want to try yet My mind is pulling in a million different directions as my fingers stay frozen My musings are a thousand wild horses fleeing from a fire of coherency...
