Silence of the Sky
From atop the cliffs, the tumult of sea at night seemed remote, too far away to ever hurt anyone. On the horizon, a string of lights revealed freighters waiting their turn to enter port, some twenty kilometers to the north, like they had for thousands of years. Brilliant lights shone all along the curving shore in that direction, only fading as they came closer, through one sedated coastal town after another. The breeze brought a chill, and the smell of salt, while up the promenade traveled mixed music from merry-go-rounds and beer gardens. It was peaceful at this end. The few floating lamps kept trying to cluster where people did, to the chagrin of those seeking the dark on purpose.
The bazaar was closing down as I wandered past. Less than one hour to midnight. I rubbed the smoke of barbecues out of my eyes and watched the crowd. A neko family, with two kids chasing each other's tails around the padded feet of their parents. Locals, by their clothes; tourists tended to be more extrava

A worldbuilding manifesto
(Or: a discussion of science fiction clichés)
Long ago, I created a space opera universe, with high hopes of setting all kinds of awesome stories in it. That didn't work out. Took me years to write just one. Even writing down all I knew about the setting didn't help. After some reworking, it finally yielded another story written by a friend, and a forum-based roleplaying adventure. And that was all.
My third attempt at worldbuilding came much later, and went straight to science-fantasy. But even though almost everything changed, most of my old principles turned out to have aged just fine. So here they (still) are. Enjoy.
Earth should not be special in any way
Aren't you annoyed by the anthropocentrism and Terracentrism of most science fiction? I mean, when Earth isn't the pinnacle of galactic civilization (usually without justification), it must be a

The Watch
Plumes of smoke drifted across the clear summer sky, carrying with them the acrid smell of still-burning fires. Below, narrow streets winded among facades riddled with holes, pavement stones upturned by tank treads wherever the lumbering mechanical beetles had struggled to turn some corner. Here, a lamp post leaned against a partially collapsed house, where an artillery shell had pierced the wall and exploded, scattering blackened bricks every which way. There, water gurgled out of the exposed pipework of what had been a lovely public fountain, forming pools in the tattered shadow of an awning.
There was no sound but for the crackling of flames; at least, not until the rapping of boots echoed among the endless files of three-story buildings. Two dozen soldiers marched as orderly as the torn ground allowed for, peeking nervously at the gloom behind broken windows while they fingered the straps of rifles. But there was nothing to see, not even the flapping of a pigeon's wings.
Until, tha

Invader
It was a beautiful day at the beach, with not a cloud in the sky and just enough wind to temper the burning sun, the piercing cries of seagulls breaking up the heartbeat of waves washing up on hot sand. The meteor shower was just a bonus; nothing like that had been announced, but still they came, strings of silver sparks streaking across the sky. People pointed, watched with binoculars, filmed with their phones, shouts of excitement punctuating the bigger fireballs. But none of them ever came closer than the horizon. For a while, the show seemed to have ended. Then the wind picked up, bringing with it small dark clouds that churned furiously as they raced low over the water. People began to panic, swimmers racing each other ashore while those sunning themselves grabbed their towels and ran. A couple fell off their jet skis, narrowly avoiding one of the clouds that swept close to the shore. For a moment its shape suggested a bird of prey as it hovered above a hastily deserted jetty made

Vryheid prologue
A curious person strode the halls of the royal palace in Stichting that morning: under a meter and fifty tall, with slick blond hair held back by large pointy ears, blue eyes and most strikingly a lion tail swishing behind him, which added playfulness to a youthful appearance. Heads turned at the sound of steps on the granite floors and the creaking of shiny, elegant space age clothes, as sunbeams streaked through the ornate windows. A couple of robot maids standing in a doorframe bowed in unison, receiving a nod in response. A middle-aged man in a tailcoat stopped in his tracks. "Magister," he greeted. "Chief Secretary," was the amiable answer. From a perpendicular corridor which seemed gloomy by way of contrast came a woman with a sour expression, in a conservative skirt suit, passing by without so much as a sideways glance, a large tablet in one hand, briefcase in the other. Without hesitation, the short figure turned left, away from the light, casting a long shadow ahead.

Why videogames suck
Have you ever bought a pizza with pieces of broken glass that you first have to take out before you can enjoy your meal? Because that's pretty much the model behind some video games nowadays.
There's a lot of video games that are well made and fun to play, you just run them any time to play alone or with friends and the gameplay is just great. Even if you lose, it's not a big deal, you just start over.
But there's another type of games that introduce some kind of day-by-day progressing, where you're supposed to evolve and save your progress to keep working on it tomorrow...
And these games can be also pretty fun to play if they're done well, they let you truly evolve enough to unlock more of the game's content. Oddly enough, only the really big titles let you actually do that, e.g. Skyrim, Final Fantasy XV, Fallout 4, Witcher 3, Destiny 2, all those games actually let you grow instead of just getting you stuck.
But there's another kind of games I've been playing recently that seem as i

Changing clothes again! Ug, I hated this. Wake up, put on my Sunday best and polished shoes to go to church. Then dirty jeans, and work boots for hours of chores, all the while my mind was on only one thing; the huge tome I just picked up right after church when I waved down the book mobile. So when it was time for to cover my lanky tomboyish frame, the dirty jeans was shed for high, cut-off shorts, work boots for sneakers, and to top it off the dirty white shirt was left for a tight blue one. My mother, of course, took one look and demanded a different shirt. A loose t-shirt with a picture of Burt Reynolds in a cowboy hat over the tight under-shirt shut her mouth. Before anything else happened, I was out the door lugging the book in one hand and trying to tie my lengthy red hair into a loose pony tail with the other. I just knew if I stayed even a moment more someone else would catch me for another round of

A dog named Pulse
"A dog named Pulse"
by Kantuck Nadie Nata-akon
"What did I do wrong?"
The door squeaks on its metal hinges once again. The same, day in and day out. Opening an eye, I sniff at the influx of air, and again it's about the same. The same food human was making his rounds. He's ok, treats me pretty well.
I look up at him, perking my ears forward. I don't see the leash and collar maybe still he'll take me for a walk? Just something other than this cage I'm in most of the day. Nothing to do but listen to the cries of puppies until they finally realize they don't have a bitch, sire, or sibs. Mewing of cats - yeah, cats are ok. We're all in the same area, so I don't care much. At least every time someone new comes in there is a bunch of new scents to take in. Not like last time the sun was up, that wasn't a fun day, let me tell you!
I can recall it clearly.A human bitch came in, with her three whelps. They were running around, yapping so loud it hurt my ears. Then they came to my cage barking a

A throaty bleat echoed through the chamber, surprising the scientists as they looked up.
"Postscript: Uplift subject 1004-Cervinoid now displaying encouraging signs of life after a non-responsive period of one minute and..." a quick watch check "22 seconds." He punched a control stopping the automated body-bagging, then tapping another to start full decontamination procedures. After all the problems and the subject displaying signs of life he was optimistic and wanted to maintain it this way. "Now, go on in, Gene," ordering his colleague.
Dr. Gene Robbarts walked in, amidst the continuous noise of pumps and hoses continuing to drain organic liquids from the growth tank. Inside the clear container, a human infant sized deer fawn kicked and squirmed, her head shaking out fluids from her long ears
After opening her home, Gene quickly sucked out the remaining fluids from

The world? The world is not interested in us. Today, everything is possible, even the crematoria... Elie Wiesel, Night
The march was long, and tiring, but finally into a clearing we started seeing, or rather we started /smelling/. How can I describe the intense /stink/ of decay and rot. It was August 2113, and it was hot; 35c hot. Only the micro refrigeration units in our suits kept us cool enough to walk the eight kilometers. But gods it was like a foul cloud that slammed into us. It was all we could do to walk to where it was, and to stand outside the barbed wire. In a massive heap, was hundreds of bodies, rotting there in the sun. Vultures were still fighting over the scraps, with ditches full of putrid liquid just standing there like a fowl swamp.
Our leader "Sargent bull" the toughest and most loyal to his troops Sargent leaned against a tree, nearly passing out. What could I do? A

Storyteller night! How the members of this unusual tribe looked forwards to the concluding day of the week. Ever since the peaceful tribe was formed, only a hundred or so years ago. Storytelling night was used not exclusively for pleasant entertainment, but even to properly resolve disputes. The offending parties acting out stories they dreamed up much like a typical play and the engaged inhabitants unanimously choosing the best.
Now this night was extremely special, for they received a person from the university. He was a storyteller in his own right and everyone asked for him to speak this night. Reluctantly he agreed and the entire tribe, aside from the guards who drew the short straws turned up. Currently in the tent we identify the storyteller getting ready.
