DeconstructTamis woke under the heat of the mid morning sun, the ocean reaching tentative tendrils up the smooth sand to lick at his feet. The last evening was a grey cloud, but he'd evidently passed out on the beach again. Levering up on one elbow, he followed the beach-line unbroken to the horizon, then pushed up into a sitting position and turning, scanned to the horizon on his other side. Nothing to see, apparently nobody up yet.Deconstruct1 day ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A fragment of a song flitted through his mind, and he latched onto it, pushing at its edges to try and expose the entire tune. There was something familiar, but without context...
The girl breezed by in the periphery of his mind's eye, but as he reached for the memory it dissolved, like a chalk drawing in the rain.
On the sand he'd absently scratched the crude outline of a heart, and the letter 'T'.
She must be here somewhere.
Climbing to his feet he began to walk along the shoreline, the waves still reaching for him and he staying just beyond their tou

“What a soothingly quiet night for a walk... I hate it...” echoed a dark voice.
2203 AD—it was the century of division between the Information and Space Exploration Age. Civilization had passed through the time of automobiles working on rubber wheels, the time of water based navies, and the seemingly endless days where humanity roamed one planet together. Now came the day of hovercraft, spaceships, and colonial planets—some of which had already become self-sustaining in the new age. Yet, despite these great advancements, many things from the olden day remain. The internet remains the dominant source for knowledge, humanity still adheres to the classic system of stop signs and intersections, even politicians continue to debate the same issues argued by their great ancestors.
The heart of the new age, respectively, comes from the economically and technologically booming metropolis of Mute City, formerly known as Tokyo. Si

I know it’s been a long time. I’m sorry.
How’ve you been? You’ve graduated by now, I think. Are you going back to school? I know you wanted to do your art thing, so maybe you’re going to school for that. Or not. You’re already amazing.
Mom’s probably told you already, but I’m doing great. Business is booming! It’s almost too much for me to handle by myself. (But I’ll survive, don’t get any ideas.) I’ve met some really great people, and I’ve made some dear friends. And I have pets now! You should come and visit them; you still love dogs, don’t you?
I should’ve written you sooner, I know. But I guess I have no excuse now that Mom knows where I live, haha.
We left on the wrong foot. I said some things that I really regret.
So let’s start again, okay?
Mom and Paul,
Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know that everything is fine on my end. Mom, I tried your suggestions on the c
2037 - TemplateNocturne, a griffin, hopped through a glowing portal to meet the new player. She appeared flying over Sanctum, the closest thing the virtual world had to a central zone. Nocturne glided down to a land of tall, dry grass and scattered trees. "Hello?" she called out.2037 - Template4 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A shape rippled into view: white metallic body, centauroid, long blond hair and tail that looked like plastic. A pair of heavy guns swiveled on mounts attached to her lower back.
"Whoa!" said Nocturne, taking to the air. "I'm not here to hurt you."
The creature's guns hummed and lay flat against her hide. She raised one of her forepaws with a whirr of motors, and spoke in a faintly musical, synthetic voice: "I'm sorry. I'm designed to be armed. Lady Ludo asked me to meet you."
"You just woke up, right?" Nocturne spiraled back down to the grass near the newcomer, keeping an eye on her guns. Ludo, the AI who'd created this world and native AIs like them, had suggested the meeting.
The centaur-robot said, "Yes. My name is Lumin
Star Wars Awakening: Ep 1: Fell Lord GangrelAs the two Nagites, Chrom Skywalker and Fred Gon Jinn escort their comrades to the throne room during the battle, they encounter a mysterious cloaked figure in the hangar.

The three fight. Despite the fact that he has the disadvantage in number, the mysterious man was able to fight on par with both Nagites at once, outmaneuvering them at every turn. The fight moves from the hangar into a power generator area. They soon make it to a small catwalk around a vast power pit, three swords clashing in a display of swordsmanship. Gangrel kicks Chrom off, sending him to a walkway

I woke inside of --what I remembered to be-- the small white break room of St.mercy hospital. The second thing I noticed was the throbbing pain on the left side of my head.
"Great...probably have a concussion... Well thanks random lady in street" I muttered to myself.
As I sat up in a daze on the cold hard marble white countertop, I felt the barrel of a gun at the back of my head, and heard the hammer of the gun 'cock'for the second time today.
"Who are you?" The female voice from before growled.
"Name's Endra Hellfire, ma'am." I replied, letting my thick southern accent show
"Why were you out there?" A rough male voice said from behind me.
"Jus' tryin' to survive, like ya'll." I replied.
"Well it's a pleasure to meet ya. My name's Frances." The male voice said.
I stood and spun around to look at the 'group'. I first saw a, slim, fit, average height, brunette teenage girl. And to her left was a, tall, muscular, fit, shaven head, biker clad man. And two other males behi
The Captain and The StormHis gears always ached when it rained. Perhaps it had something to do with the lightning, all that energy in the atmosphere. Sparks flying in the air, in his head.

The drops came down softly at first, but the tapping grew harsh as time dragged on—like nervous fingertips against the glass. The absinthe in his belly felt warm, and he could feel what was left of his lips go numb behind their metal mask. They burned when he drank, of course, but he liked to think it was worth it. Pain made him feel human again, reminded him that there were still things they couldn’t change. The cold metal in his eyes that snaked through his skull stung on days like this, a different kind of pain. His nervous system occasionally remembered that machinery really didn’t belong in a human body, and sent sharp, white-hot jolts through his eye sockets and down his spine, rattling his bones. His cogs clutched, ma
