  • Gone in a Flash

    “Uh…okay…” Billy said, shading his eyes and squinting, trying to see past the lights. “Are you okay, Sera? You sound kinda funny.” “I’ve been a little sick lately,” Sera said. “Yeah, you might say she...

  • Lights Are On...

    “That’s… You don’t see a lot of people willing to make that kind of decision so quickly,” Lisa said, raising an eyebrow. “For all you know, we’ll have to… take him out of public circulation.” “...

  • The Hole in the Wall

    Fur and Sera moved up, weapons at the ready. Lisa moved in behind them. “All right, this is new.” Sera pointed at a ragged hole in the wall, surrounded by fragments of stone and plaster dust. “Looks like they’ve tunneled in from...

  • All Your Reasons

    “I don’t think they’ve done a full-on Shawshank Redemption number for something they just kinda want, the question is what is it in the building that they actually want?” “Some of the brightest minds in the area work or go...

  • Thanks for the Memory

    “But what kind of reinforcements?” James asked. “Whatever they’re after might make all the difference.” “And how do you suggest we find that out?” Lisa asked. “Well, I dunno, these guys are, like, walking...

  • Fire It Up?

    “Great, that’ll make it even MORE of a pain in the ass to take out the controller without taking out the entire ’mech.” Sera grumbled. “With that kind of storage density increase, you’re talking about a geometric inc...

  • You Know That It Would Be Untrue You Know That I Would Be a Liar

    Lisa grinned. “And the mechs’ plasma rifles can ignite the wires without leaving any traces of arson. Or at least, none that forensics will recognize.” “Then what are we waiting for?” James grinned. “Let’s ligh...

  • Cuffed

    When Lisa and James awoke, they were cuffed together in what was unmistakably, the trunk of a moving car. “Oh my head… Wait, Marauders?” James whimpered, clutching his recently-clocked head. “No, if this were the Marauders, we w...

  • Dominatrix Theory

    “Do you want us to be quiet, or do you want us to answer questions? We can’t do both at once,” Lisa said. Billy facepalmed. “You know what I mean.” “What’s this all about?” James asked, blinking against t...

  • Surrealism

    “Okay, libraries. That was something that I thought I could go my entire life without hearing until I heard it, and that’s even after my sister got turned into a refugee straight out of Macross.” James deadpanned, mind boggled by the ...

  • Driving Home

    “Are you off your nut?” Lisa hissed to James as they shared the back seat of the woman’s car. Billy was driving, and the woman was sitting backward on the passenger seat, glowering at them and fingering the hilt of a bullwhip. “...

  • Off In The Ditch

    “What? The plasma cannon is NEVER overkill!” Sera said, looking at her brother like he had grown a third ear on his forehead. “I would, however, be curious as to exactly how you managed to let yourself get kidnapped by someone in THAT...

  • Damage Control

    James groaned. “This wasn’t even necessary. We were taking them back to the base. They could have taken care of it there without anyone getting hurt.” “You don’t know that!” Sera insisted. “Hmph, fine way to ac...

  • Watching and Waiting

    “I hate stakeouts.” Lisa growled over the radio. They had managed to track down the hotel where the guest speaker was staying at, and Aegis agents had met them there with Sera and Fur’s proper bodies, all evidence of the previous spar...

  • Fidgeting

    James frowned, trying to figure the odds in his head for whether the new arrivals were robots in disguise or just the random odd vehicles you got every so often. It was a little hard to concentrate when— “Ow! What was that?” James looked ...

  • Playing Catch Up

    Shortly after that, the exit nearest the parked sports car burst open, and Lisa dashed for Fur, gripping a bookish-looking man with a briefcase by the arm before shoving him in and diving in herself. “Jim, Sera, run interference for me!” Li...

  • The Quintessential Pickup

    “You sure you’re up to this?” James asked. “I can take the wheel if you want.” “Not yet,” Sera growled. “Got something else for you to do.” A section of the cab roof slid back, and the seat back sli...

  • I thought it was a Raptor, not an Explorer.

    James clambered up, awkwardly attempting to maintain his balance as he clambered up, one hand on the roof’s edge and one clasping the heavy rifle. Steadying himself with one leg against the dashboard, he hauled the weapon up and heaved it into th...

  • Cab Over

    Time seemed to slow down as James looked “up” and watched the ground rotate into place above him and then begin lowering. He just had time to wonder if there would even be enough left of him to scan into a robot, when a jarring impact stopp...

  • A Lot Of Pickup

    The pursuit took the speeding Lotus out of sight of the flipped truck, and Lisa looked to the terrified man in the passenger seat. “Listen, I know you’re scared but it’ll be okay, we’re the good guys more or less. I need you to ...

  • A Potential Potemkin

    Sera snorted. “I want you to know that if I end up singing ‘Jailhouse Rock’ in the impound yard, I’m blaming you.” “I’ll take that risk,” James said. “Look out! Traffic cams report automechs closing...

  • A Brave New World From The Last To The First

    “Keep ’em busy!” Sera exclaimed, but it was completely unnecessary as well as completely inaudible to her partner. Bolts of plasma were already hurtling toward the Marauder interceptors as Sera struggled with her own inertia to pull o...

  • That Has Such People in It

    James didn’t have time to be frightened before the robot’s hand thrust into the open back of a mid-sized U-Haul truck and dropped him, none too gently. Then the door slammed down, cutting off the light, and the truck started to move. James ...

  • A Thousand To One And A Million To Two

    “Hello?” James called out. His heart sunk. Now that he wasn’t alone he felt responsible for the both of then. Hearing a groan in reply, he carefully picked his way back across to the source of the rustling, feeling his way along until...
