“Okay, Sheriff. It was brought to my attention that the triangle might have already implanted.” Lieutenant McMathan says as he stands up behind the row of screens in front of me.
“Oh?” I ask, rubbing my exposed belly that sat atop the sheet that’s covering my legs.
“Take a look.” He turns one of the screens on, showing three pregnant women in front of a store opening at the mall. Is that… Tonya? On the bench? “I suspect that might be Chief Deputy Lebeau on the bench. If it’s latching onto her face…” He continues to play the clip. It then pounced onto her belly. “Triangle might’ve impregnated her with the special creature it might have been carrying. This is only theoretical.”
“And what about the volunteer women? Are they ready to go?” I ask him, holding my belly defensively.
“Yes, they’ve all got steel plates strapped to their abdomens to prevent
World 2570The thing about World 2570 is it’s sustainable, the sunsets are nice, and the food is comically abysmal. Not in the dangerous way it is in the 2230s, where a burrito that doesn’t taste so bad might give you gut parasites that’ll eat and replace your organs over a course of a month, or in 2357 and 2358, where they act like you’re a fup for asking to see an ingredient list after you’ve watched the waiter sprinkle actual nuclear waste on your cordon bleu. Eating Five-Seventian food is like watching a movie that’s so bad it’s funny. That’s why, when we were in college, we used to get hammered and Fade there and eat at a new restaurant every weekend. It’s why I was there now.World 25707 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

What Kaiju Are You Battle Royale - The storyIt is said that humanity as a race "doth protest too much" from time to time. Beyond the first decade of the early 2000's civilization mankind has turned increasingly inward. Finding fault with his neighbor over matters both great and trivial but rather than take weighted action as in times of old, he instead labels his rival a personal slogan of contempt and beseeches his peers to do the same. Crying for justice but unwilling to weigh himself upon the same scale with clarity or truth. The warning signs were abundant, natural disaster after natural disaster plagued the world and yet still...the eye strains inward. Seeking to remedy what one believes to be a fatal flaw that is more often than not the chief domain of others. Even after so much time, man still seeks his dragon to slay so that he may crown himself a hero. The instruments of our demise did not come suddenly or without warning. Like many things they appeared gradually and were either ignored or celebrated. Perhaps if we hadWhat Kaiju Are You Battle Royale - The story15 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Please note that, under other circumstances, you would not be getting this message. Even so, given the situation I felt that it was necessary to correspond with you at least once. First and foremost:
I don't hate you.
I know you probably think I do, and likewise, you would be completely justified to think the same about me. In fact, your general stubbornness and tendency to do things with utter disregard to the circumstances honestly drives me to risk brain damage via banging my head against the nearest hard object.
But I don't hate you.
The fact you are receiving this message can mean one of two things: either I'm dead, or I'm missing and unlikely to be found. It would be my guess that the first likely has the higher probability of the two. If you're able to hack into private files and fabricate ammunition that can electrocute on contact or send nanobots p
FYS: Last DutyThe hospice suite was crowded. Mrs. Nguyen sat in her bed, her frail frame almost smothered by the blankets and pillows that propped her up to a sitting position. Around her were her three children, and an even dozen grandchildren, with the great-grandchildren in the waiting room outside. Also outside waiting were everyone’s morphs, who knew from experience when to keep close and when to say out of the way, in order to give their charges a modicum of privacy during this most emotional event.FYS: Last Duty1 day ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Only Janey remained in one corner of the room, wearing the form of a red panda, out of the way but available, in the unlikely chance that Mrs. Nguyen would need her. But Mrs. Nguyen had not responded to anyone for nearly two days. Though Janey had taken care of her in the fifteen years since the old woman had awakened on the Ring, her services had become increasingly irrelevant as more specialized nursing morphs had taken over the duty of caring for the increasingly frail woman. Still, Janey

Ozaki, Miki and Professor Jinguji traveled further down the hallway, hoping to find a way out and back to the rest of the group. As they walked, they noticed hieroglyphics all around them on the walls. They stopped in front of one, which appeared to depict a great battle. They saw what looked like a great city and men fighting back against what appeared to be a giant three-headed dragon.
"What do suppose it means?" Miki asked. "I don't know. This dialect is unknown to me" the professor replied. "Let's just keep moving" Ozaki said to them.
They continued down the hallway until they reached a massive room with a pedestal on it. But what truly got their attention was on the opposite wall of the pedestal; a massive mural with many kaiju on it. They recognized Anguirus, Rodan, Varan, Mothra, Gorosaurus, Kamoebas, Titanosaurus and Zilla but all the others depicted were unknown to them. All the creatures were divided up into what could only be described section

It's been dark for years.
A wolf howls in the darkness, clear voice splitting a clear, dark sky. A cloud rolls by, edged in green, like everything up high.
Everything near the tower.
The howl is plaintive and low, and as I make my way slowly to the well, I wonder if it's truly a wolf at all. It could be human. Or it could be animal. Is there truly any difference anymore?
She has a beautiful voice, whatever she is.
I reach the well, and begin cranking the bucket down. But the crank gets stuck. I give it a few rough tugs and it breaks off in my hands. There will be no water today, unless I can fix it.
Everything needs fixing here.
I begin to make my way back toward the house, picking my way over worn terrain. I wish I could carry a candle, but then THEY'D come. THEM, with their lasers, and guns, and I-don't-know-whats.
THEY hate the light.

I have always thought misunderstanding to be a strange creature. Dreadfully annoying and often unpleasant to deal with. To all those who find themselves unable to conquer it, it can be nasty, uncharted territory. A think black line that none of us will willingly step over. Because no one wants to be forced to lie when they tell you that they know how you feel. It can be the thing that makes people want to get to know each other better. Or to never want to really know each other again.

“I’m about to puke all over the place.” He said, leaning on me. “I feel like shit.”
I felt a little sad for him, since he was the only one clueless to what was going on with him. I accidentally brushed against his chest and he yelled, putting his hands to his pecs.
“What’s wrong with you?” I asked.
“My chest area is sensitive.” He said, massaging himself. “And I’m starting to look really weird up there. Look.”
He lifted his shirt and I made a noise. It looked like he was sporting A-cups at me. For some reason, it seemed like something that Requiem would do.
“Kaikunane, get yourself a nice bra.” I said, flicking a nipple.

Despite the assurance that I was welcomed into the Tai Po Geology Museum, my attire earned many awkward stares from the other creatures there. My journey west had brought me to Hong Kong, all the way from Hokkaido, Japan. I came here after the grapevine informed me that a precious stone of unusual size was added to the collection at this museum. If the wise words of my new friends Oogway, Gouken, Wang, and Iroh are to be trusted, this stone, or one similar to it, is one of the many keys needed to suppressing the dark power that had infected me.
This power is called Satsui no Hadou, also known as The Surge of Murderous Intent, it pushes my body to its limit in strength, but injects me with a desire to fight and kill others who stand in my way.

Drip. Drip. The quiet sound was intensified by the suffocating stillness. The thick liquid slid down, staining the shimmering blade, before falling-- in slow-motion, it seemed-- to the mottled white floor. A crimson pool had formed around black boots, and four prone forms.
Grey eyes, constricted pupils, mouth slightly open. Thud. Thud. Heavy heartbeats drowned out the dripping. Breath was hard to come by, as shock wrapped its clawed hand tightly about her chest.
Suddenly, the front door burst open. Three hulking shapes pushed in, armoured bodies gleaming, massive weapons drawn. The blue scanning light flooded the dark parlour as she turned to face them. There was a click and the light receded. A strange beeping noise.
"Male, forty-seven, deceased," a robotic voice spouted, "female, thirty-nine, deceased. Male, eighteen, deceased. Male, twenty-four, deceased." A long silence fell as the girl, blood-splatters on her face and clothing, stood perfectly still, clutching the dr
