Slumber party! - A Replay fanfic

"A special day, a special day, today's a very special day..." Laura sang, as she all but danced over the campsite, keeping her eyes peeled for her targets, her ears softly swaying in the gentle breeze and her tail bopping with every step. Kasper slowly trotted after her, his head hung low in utter defeat. "Um...Sir, is something...the matter?" one of the soldiers addressed him, making Kasper give him an incredibly tired look. "Did...something happen?" Kasper pointed to his bouncing little sister with his thumb and replied, "They trained you to withstand torture too, didn't they?" "Why yes, Sir. Standard procedure for the armed forces." "..

"God damn, I'm late!" Filip exclaimed, as the bell called for the first lesson. He whizzed over the campus, just barely evading a couple of other students who didn't seem in quite as much of a hurry as Filip. Unfortunately, his maneuver had unforeseen consequences, as his left foot stepped on a piece of paper, which was soaked from last night's rain. He realized his mistake a split second too late and just when he shifted his weight to the foot to continue his desperate sprint, the paper slipped away with him still on it. The world around himself slowed down, as gravity took its inevitable course and pulled him towards the ground, face fir

It is an ordinary day. An ordinary winter's day. Which means it's cold. And by cold I mean it's bloody freezing! And I'm standing in the middle of the street with crowds of people passing me by...in a summer dress. How did I even end up here? How did any of this happen?! Right...let's recount the facts. It's the 3rd of December in 2019...at least according to the Newspaper. Trump is still the president of America and people are busy preparing for Christmas. "Are you lost, little miss?" a passerby addresses me. Do I look okay to you?! I exhale deeply, turn around and reply, "Why yes. It's a perfectly ordinary day...I just...picked the wr

"I'm gonna show him. I'm going to show them all. What is he even thinking, dragging that...that...woman into the camp!" Sofia mumbled as she marched into her tent. She walked straight over to the cabinet, which was filled with all sorts of clothes for every kind of occasion, ranging from classy up to straight out lewd, apparently taken from a store for 'special and private occasions'. When the scavenging crews brought them back, nobody had wanted them, but Sofia thought that just discarding them would have been a waste, so she took them in, even if only as a source of material for repairs to her actual clothes. She stripped down to her und

Julia's story (Replay fanfic)

A few days after the return of the group to the camp with the spellbook and its involuntary guardian, Julia approaches a surprisingly large tent and knocks against one of the supports. "Excuse me...is this the tent of Doctor...Kowalski?" she asks aloud. The creaking of a folding chair and a few heavy steps later, Stefen opens the cloth door, recognizes the face standing in front of him and responds, "Ah, Miss...Julia, was it?" Julia nods and asks, "Laura told me that you wanted to talk to me?" "Yes, that is correct. Please, come in. Oh and call me 'Stefen'. Nobody calls me 'Kowalski' any more these days...except for Laura maybe, because of t

RotP 100 - Epilogue

As the light fades, there is only darkness. Darkness and silence. No humming. No voices. Nothing. But it doesn't feel uncomfortable. On the contrary, it feels warm and soft. I hear a car passing by. A siren in the distance. Where in the world am I?! I open my eyes and look up at a sight I had almost forgotten. It actually takes me a moment to remember this sight. I'm looking at the ceiling of my home. Not my room in Sanctuary. Not the penthouse at the PIM. Not the cell at the Sentinels. I sit up, making sure that I am not mistaking things, but sure enough, this is the flat I had before the world went to hell. I feel something rustle ne

As we walk down the corridor towards the ominous light, I sigh, "Say...it's too late to come up with an alternative plan, right?" "...not necessarily. What's on your mind?" Saph asks. "...well, we could just...ask the Sentinels to let us go?" The group stops and Saph asks, "And just what makes you think they would let us do that?" "Well, I was thinking...we bargain with them. Let us go or we end the world." Saph scratches her head and finally sighs, "Bluffing our way out, huh? And there I thought you had one of your strokes of brilliance...ah well, guess you can't win them all." "Why, what's wrong with the idea?" "First off: It wouldn't work

My head hurts. Yet, at the same time, there's this feeling of numbness, much like my feet falling asleep, only that it's in my head feeling numb, not my feet. Kinda messed up feeling. ...kinda messed up life, now that I think about it. No, completely messed up life. What did even happen? I remember having a funky dream, but what was it about? What did I do in this dream? Where am I anyway? Back home? At the PIM headquarters? In the cell at the Sentinel base? Am I alive or dead? Browsing through my memories isn't helping...I simply can't tell what's real and what was a dream any more. That they are a fuzzy mess isn't helping either. I sho

RotP 97 - Going over the top

We keep running, evading the death traps and soldier caches the best we can, fighting our way through in those cases where we can't. After what feels like forever, I huff, "A-are we sure that the exit is this way? Cause it sure feels like we keep going deeper!" "That's just your imagination, Mr. Eternium," Silvia replies with a matter of fact voice. "She's right, we've all seen the maps. This is the way to the exit!" Siren adds. I lean against one of the walls, huffing and puffing, afraid that my pounding heart will decide to take the nearest exit if I take just one more step. Siren yells at me, "Get your act together, you fool! We need to

'Where am I?', the little girl wonders as she stumbles through the empty halls, which are painted in the same pristine white as her dress. Within her mind, echoes of screams and cries resound and she cowers in pain, as a few people hastily come running, pushing a stretcher, yelling things she cannot seem to understand. They whiz past her, almost running her over with the stretcher. She opens her mouth to scream, but nobody seems to care and as they disappear in the distance, so does every other sound except for the monotone buzzing of the lighting.

Luna Rose's Actually Useful Mary Sue Litmus Test

Reposted from my blog "Dear Miss Luna Rose, I’m worried that my character is a Mary Sue. She has dyed purple hair and pretty blue eyes. She witnessed her dad’s murder at age 7 and it left her with some issues. She’s also bad at dancing and sometimes her anger flares up and she does things she regrets. Is she a Mary Sue?" —Concerned writer #472 I get questions like this all the time. And I never can tell them a “yes” or “no.” Why not? Because I can’t possibly tell from a short description, andthis misunderstands what it means to be a Mary Sue.Honestly, I blame litmus tests. What’

My Bio
I'm just a mediocre (at best) writer and programmer who's trying to make the best of his skills.

Some like me, some don't and some don't care...I believe that's all there is to say about me.

Farewell dA

Farewell dA

Before you start reading this, I recorded a little something as background music for this journal. Go ahead. Hit the 'Play' button. Got it? Fine, be that way then. Alright, enough fooling around, time to get down to business...and it's a bit of a sad business. According to dA, I've been here for 6 years now...almost 7, actually. In this time, I've written a total of 506 deviations, most of which were long winded stories with long and elaborate chapters. I have no idea, how many pages I've written, I just know it's been a lot. In this time, I have gathered: 14k Pageviews 1.4k Points (from contests, comissions, lotteries) 9.3k commen

Are you familiar with the myth of the sword of Damokles? As it so happens, fate has decided to put it over my head once again. A medicinal necessity in the family which may or may not become a problem in the near future will leave me without the support I require to have my Saturday mornings as 'writing time'. I will try to keep up writing my RotP chapters, but when my writing time gets removed like that...let me put it this way, a 3 year old child can be very demanding timewise, so I'm not sure if I can keep up the schedule. Thank you for reading my stories, thank you for sticking around and thank you for putting up with me. May life tr

Want to stay updated about what's going on in my writing life in far greater detail than the occasional journal or the deviation stacks. Want to receive news of delays instead of just wondering 'why isn't there a new chapter today'? Now you can. A while ago, I've opened a Twitter account (Refugnic (https://www.deviantart.com/refugnic)), where I post quick status updates about new chapters, current projects (both dA and outside) etc., so if you want to keep up to date with what I'm up to now, feel free to meet me on Twitter. (And no, I still don't intend to get myself Facebook, since I have yet to see the point :P) Thanks for reading.

Hello fellow Wingless reader and theoretician! ;^) So, tell me, what do you recommend me among your works? I like horror, fantasy and sci fi
RefugnicHobbyist Writer
Haha, it pays to have a rather unique handle to go by, doesn't it? :D

Welcome. Welcome, indeed.

As I'm sure you've noticed already, I have a rather wide array of stories, both long and short for you to choose from, most of which move along the lines of sci-fi and fantasy, often borderlining between the two genres.

If you're looking for something a little longer, I think you may like Tisis, a survival/sci-fi collab I tried my hand at a while ago.
If something a little more recent tickles your fancy, I am currently working on 'Rise of the Psionians', an apocalyptic sci-fi story about people who suddenly got 'powers' and how that changed the world.
In Anti-Zombie I tried my hand at the horror genre. Not my best work to date, but I nevertheless entertaining I am told...at least there's actually people who read the whole thing, so it can't be all bad. :D

What I don't recommend is 'Animal Kingdom', a piece of fantasy and kinda gone wrong or 'Manifest', which was my NaNoWriMo entry of last year, which is still better than AK, but not really 'grade A' material either...well, what to expect from something I typed down in less than a month, right? :P

And if you're looking for some of my shorter works/standalones, you may want to take a look at the remaining folders labeled short stories,  etc. where you will find some of the things I cooked up either in response to something specific or on a whim.

Except for Crochet, I doubt you will find anything worth reading in there. :D

I hope you'll enjoy your time in my gallery and if you've got a thing or two to say about how awful my writing is, feel free to share. :P
After all, feedback is the only real way for me to improve, cause how am I going to do better, if I don't know what I'm doing wrong? ;)

Thank you for finding me and have a lot of fun. :)
