Archans are a multiple-limb humanoid life form that inhabits the planet of Gallos in the Alpha Quadrant. First contact occurred in 2310 by the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B. Their species were warp capable due to earlier contact with the Breen that had come to their planet to mine Topaline in 2378. The Breen were looked upon as slavers, forcing the technology weakened Archans to provide labor, and materials for their refrigeration units. It wasn't until 2392 a global revolution would force the Breen to leave Gallos. The revolution left much of the Breen technology in their hands, and the Archans who were very intelligent and mechanically dexterous used the technology to re-build their world, and build defenses from other invading species. The Breen incident left the planet xenophobic as the first contact was a bit hazardous with many trust issues that impeded their acceptance. It wasn't until 2344 that they formerly were recognized by the United Federation of Planets, and 2362 became a mem

Jerry shrugged. “You know you have more fun with a few curves. And I do, too.” He was just as much a beanpole as his girlfriend, and his straight dark hair hung almost to his shoulders, making him look almost as female as her. “Besides, you know the deal. I don’t mind shopping with you, if I get to Venn you afterward.”
“Fine,” she sighed. “Just don’t make my tits so big that I can’t fit in your car, like last time.”
“I said I was sorry about that, Marcy. And I changed you back.”
“I know. I’m just... I wish you’d make out with me in my normal body, you know? I don’t try to change you.”

Mesmerized, Ben strode through the small aisle, his gaze sweeping over the sparkling gowns and dresses displayed left and right. His heart was beating madly, and part of his excitement was the fear of being caught, of a shopkeeper or other customer spotting him while indulging in his most secret fantasy.
It had happened several times, and each time he'd wished to evaporate on the spot, the sneer or disdain on the shopkeepers' faces when they expelled him from the store hurting like a thousand stabs with a knife. Each time, he'd swore anew never to do this again, but his cravings were too strong, and after a few weeks at the uttermost, he'd be strolling through the clothing stores' ladies sections again.
The reason for his frequent sackings was obvious - when th

The rental car had been on the road for a couple of hours, having come directly out of the Des Moines airport. Both the driver and her passenger were a little nervous as they came up on the exit they needed to take.
“Why are you nervous? I’m the one who’s going to meet a lot of your family all at once.” The male passenger, one Gordon Martin, was watching his fiancée fidgeting with two of her hands; the other two were on the steering wheel.
“I know, it’s just I haven’t seen some of my family in years. Some of them never did completely accept me…” Paulina Wilson’s voice drifted off on that point as she slowed down on the off ramp before heading into Mason City, Iowa. “Can you grab the map with the directions on it? I’m not entirely sure where the hotel is.”

“Jerry, I can’t. I’d love to be part of another of your hare-brained schemes, but I’ve got a conference to go to this weekend for work. You’ll just have to go to your reunion alone, instead of Venning me into arm-candy for the event. By the way, if you’d stopped calling Laney your arm-candy, you might still be with her.”

A solitary figure was creeping along the roof of the biggest jewelry store in Queen City to get to the skylight. Once there, the figure was looking around the base of it for a connection to an alarm system. The figure wasn’t aware of another figure floating in the air a few dozen feet above of her.
Wow, I almost missed whoever that is down there. There has to be some kind of power at play to keep them so quiet. That’s what I need to get next. The figure hovering in the air licked her lips at the prospect of gaining power as the ring on her right hand glowed faintly before she started to descend to the rooftop.
The figure on the rooftop had finally disarmed the alarm and had gotten the rope out of the bag carefully set down next to the skylight as a hand started to feel along the sides for a catch of some kind before the figure felt something moving around from behind. Spinning around

Mike sighed inwardly. Ever since Meghan had suggested they meet at the Brass Duckling, he’d known this question was coming. He didn’t mind the restaurant itself, it was clean, and the food was both cheap and good. It was a fine spot for a first date. It was also part of the one mall in town that had a Venn Machine ‒ right around the corner from it, in fact. Every date he’d been on had ended up at either the Brass Duckling, or the coffee shop at the mall entrance. He liked this girl, he thought. She was cute, her eyes sparkled when she talked, and they had seemed to be really hitting it off.
Mike frowned and shook his head. “Not really, no.”

I had better things to do in my summer holidays than to play chauffeur for my girlfriend and her best friend, especially when the two wanted me to drive them to a guaranteed super-boring art exhibition. Even more so, when the best friend in question wasn't appearing at the agreed on meeting point on the agreed on time.
Damn, I'd have loved to sleep a bit longer! I cursed inwardly. It was eight in the morning, practically still deep in the night for my holiday-standards. Oh, the joys of being a teenager with his own car. Sometimes it's more a burden than a blessing.

Laramie lost her real head six weeks ago at the state fair. She was working in a sideshow tent billed as "The Headless Woman." First thing in the morning, a magician, a real one, would make her head disappear in front of the ferris wheel operator next door. She would spend her day sitting in an easy chair with a mess of tubes that seemed to stick out of her neck pumping fake blood into a weird-looking machine nearby. She wore a cheesy sixties-era pink gabardine suit and, when the magician tapped her on her shoulder, she would pull off her white satin gloves or remove a patent-leather pump and adjust her stockings—intricate little motions that only a real human being could do convincingly.

Have some idea of the plotline before you start to write
I know this seems like a no-brainer but some people will just start hammering out a story without giving much thought to the plot. In this case it does help to have some idea of the plot before you sit down to write. Now you don't have to have anything fancy in this case, just some notes dealing with the plot focusing on information you want to remember for the story itself.
Have a good flow for the story
You notice how any good story you read just flows along from one plot point to the next to the next? You notice how that can work as well if there is a break from one p
