  • Colonel Down

  • Broken Humanity

    I found my humanity in the barrel of a revolver. 1/6. My mind did the necessary mental gymnastics and arrived at a 16.67% chance of my life coming to an end. My finger flirted with the trigger as a flood of memories swept across my mind. The butterflie...

  • Endgame

    I watched as his chest filled with pride… and i hated him! I had known him nearly all my life, yet drunk on his own success he swaggered by me with no recognition. No visible remorse, no scars, his life had continued. With the disregard the torn...

  • Let's To It Pell-Mell

    “Revenge,” I say simply. My father turns to look at me, beer in hand. “What did you just say?” he asks taking a sip while admiring the view from my rooftop garden. We can see all the way to the 02 arena from up here. “I know what happened.”...

  • Fire Within: part 1

    Sleep would not come this night. She sipped her fragrant tea, watching some last yellow flames flicker before guttering out. Her fire burned lower now - most of the blaze was long since gone. All night she had sat there, staring at the flames. As she s...

  • Fire Within: part 2

    She tried to re-compose herself, but it was impossible now; cold had penetrated to her core. She sat atop a bleak and desolate peak, and neither airs and graces nor steely determination could make a palace of it. She huddled closer to the rock at her b...

  • To Awaken

    Agony. Screaming red agony that would fade and return every few moments, but never truly end. It clouded the mind. Eyes clenched shut and fingers searched madly for ears to cover. The pain would not go away. There was no way to hide or escape from the ...

  • The Marionette's Revenge

    She twiddled fingers and rasped her voice to rid his brain of thought of choice. Her throat, the womb that knit her lies; amniocentesis to drain disguise— Dipping line, downward spin— She made him careless, drowned in gin. Still, he hid the...

  • Under the foot of the horse

    Regretfully the same couldn’t be said for the New Year. My parents, no longer divorcing, had returned to be the bane of my life. They’d also taken a liking to equestrian sport. Most notably, dead equestrian sport. Using what odd powers they...

  • A Stranger's Revenge
