Chapter 2
“So...Angelus…”
She still had her eyes closed. They were entering the planet’s atmosphere, and the ship vibrated and rocked underneath her. She was afraid, if she opened her eyes, she would see something that would frighten her to death or make her vomit. Or both. So she remained still, her hands clenching the armrests for dear life, her stomach doing flips.
“Yes?” she asked. Leviathan was trying to speak to her.
“What do you think...of all this?”
She chuckled, though it sounded harsh. “I have no idea.”
“Do you believe what this AI is saying? About this Home place?”
“Same answer.” She grunted as the ship shifted to the right, as if hitting something on the way.
“Sorry guys,” Ultima shouted back. “I’m doin’ the best I can! These controls are freakin’ crazy!”
“You’re doing fine, Ultima,” Leviathan called out. Angelus re

Project Wormhole: Episode 1
Chapter 1
The first sensation she felt in her new life was that of drowning.
Water surrounded her face, the edges of her hair, her entire body. She shivered as she gasped for clean air only to panic when it was denied her. Slamming her hands down onto what felt like glass, she tried to scream but swallowed the hot water. Bubbles surrounded her face as she shook. She wanted to cry, scream, beg for help, whatever help there was, but all of her senses were distorted by water.
And then, as if a door had opened, the water immediately evaporated. A warm light surrounded her body, dried her pale skin, blew her hair back. She saw shimmers of blonde strands around her eyes and gasped as she looked around. She could make out nothing but a bright, white light. And then a voice.
“It’s time to wake up.”
She jerked as her surroundings shifted in an instant. It was as though she had opened her eyes for the first time. The bright light was replaced with darkness. Complete and

He was moving. Or, at least wherever he was, it was moving.
Whatever it was.
"Yo, Boss, he's awake."
"Boss?"
"Oi, sunshine." A woman, one sounding younger than anticipated. Dustin waited to be hit, but to his surprise, he wasn't. Instead, he slowly opened his eyes and lifted his head. Sure enough, a woman in security fashion sat directly across from him. Her legs were crossed, as were her arms, and she wore a smile that threatened him to make a move. Long, black hair flowed down past her shoulders, and she casually pushed a few strands behind her ear. With each move, velcro and leather pushed against each other, indicating the armor she was packing.
Dustin only dared to move his gaze, and that as far as the woman's badge across her chest. Reading it didn't make him feel any better. "Nova Inc..."
"You are awake," she observed, her smile never wavering. "Sorry for the rude interruption to your day, but my superiors informed me that you were particul

"I would not create a game plan, as you call it, based around Coast Medical technology."
"You sound sure of that."
"I've had a history."

Dustin smiled as the robotic waiter, a short, stumpy thing with five arms that rotated around its central torso, brought him his dinner and a hot cup of tea. A small chicken caeser wrap, some chips, and something hot to drink. Something simple. He nodded to the robot, and the robot, for its part, indicated understanding by flashing a smiley face on its screen. The robot then continued moving down the line, checking in on all the tables. By the time it moved to the table behind Dustin, he had already taken a bite of his sandwich.
It had been a slow day. After Quint's asthmatic attack, Dustin only had two other calls, both of which were easily treated at his home office. For most of the afternoon, Dustin sat at his office desk, simultaneously ignoring and watching the news while checking his email. He was honestly

Even after six months, the first thing he noticed was the cold metal wrapped around the pillow that was touching his warm hand. And then the alarm clock, ringing to his right.
Groaning, he slammed his hand down on the buzzing alarm and pushed himself up to a sitting position. Six months to the day...and he still felt an initial shock upon waking.
Dustin sighed and shook his head. No point in complaining about it, he thought to himself. It's not like any of this is going away. He wondered how many of his own patients, both past and present, thought the same thing about their own chronic conditions, their own mental and physical states. In a way, it brought him closer to them all. He had always felt empathetic towards his patients, moreso than some of the other physicians he previously worked with, but now... Now he felt he was on their level. He understood the fear of the conditions. Not just the reality, but the fear, the daily nuances of

Prologue
The ceiling fan overhead did little to ease the tension in the room. Standing against the sleek, wooden paneling, Lynn crossed her arms over her chest and leaned back, allowing the wall to hold her weight. She was the only security in the entire room; the rest of the men and women standing in the center were physicians, indicated by their white coats and badges. These men and women, usually so stoic and professional, were now huddled together, some shivering, others openly weeping.
The attack had done its job, Lynn reflected. It had shaken them all.
She glanced outside towards the cityscape and sighed. It was another dreary day; the lights from the streets below were clouded by the insidious smog that, day by day, threatened to envelop the city. She could make out the outlines of some skyscrapers, but wisps of smog wrapped themselves around the buildings, guarding them from the outside world. Lights from other offices flashed haphazardly,

Neon always greeted me, but today it didn't. The sign had finally worn out its welcome.
At least there wasn't a glare.
I stepped into the lobby of the arcologic structure that stored my home. Clean floors and blank walls greeted me, and a woman walked past to take out her upgraded dog. For the millionth time, I thought of getting a pet of my own. But as I stepped into the claustrophobic elevator, I reminded myself that pets cost money. Money that I nor anyone else living in this building really had.
It was my own fault. My parents, the company, and my wallet would always remind me that this was entirely my fault. I went through school like every other child and managed to get better-than-average grades. I went to college and continued my better-than-average streak, but it was in the wrong field. I had been taught passion would one day pay my bills, and I had put that passion into dancing. Ballet, tap, jazz, electronic, even hip hop, I had studied it all. Was better-than-average. Was

Glare. That was the one problem with a metallic, prosthetic limb. The glare from the sun.
The sunglasses helped, but not by much. And the stares from those walking by indicated I wasn’t the only one experiencing the haphazard glares being shot across the cement pathway. But hey, it wasn’t my fault metallic prosthetics went out of fashion the same year I happened to get demoted. Those new ones aren’t cheap.
Draining the rest of my coffee, I tossed the cup into the nearby recycle bin and stood. I was just about to leave when another shot of sunlight hit me right in the cheek, the warmth taking me completely off-guard. I glanced over, surprised someone else was stupid enough to come out on such a sunny day with open metal in their body, only to blink in surprise.
Reflected in that person’s sunglasses was me. But it was more than that. The shape surrounding those glasses was me. The round cheeks, the long, brown hair, the

Chapter 8 : Battle Plan
Rubbing his eyes, Seto sighed heavily before glancing over at the alarm clock on his wooden nightstand. It read 2:00, and by the height of the moon and the strength of the stars in the sky, he realized to his great displeasure that he had, yet again, stayed up past his desired bedtime. He glanced back at his computer and frowned before maximizing the desired screen.
He had spent the entire day researching into the numerous facilities Gozaburo had used during his control of KaibaCorp. He had searched the term 'biological weapons' and was astounded to find nearly a dozen locations and facilities that were in use at the time for conducting such research. He even remembered visiting some of them on business trips with his adopted father, though his ignorance as to what they were testing came second to his image. He had been forced to visit the facilities with the bastard often, making it appear as though he was interested in carrying on the legacy of machiner

TeaCeremony's Profile Picture

United States
I specialize in writing science fiction/fantasy material and have a particular fondness for cyberpunk. Currently I'm working on a few projects, including some manga with my good friend, Emi-Chan92, and my book series Shiranai Law. In my spare time, I study Chinese and Japanese, read, and play video games. My life is honestly pretty boring.

Listed below are some projects I am working on/have completed:

Project Wormhole - A futuristic sci-fi series meant for fun and practice. It takes place across four planets and will be a total of 4-5 novels' worth of writing. The story follows a woman whose code name is Angelus, who awakens in a body not her own on a lost, abandoned ship with two other individuals. The team are given no indication as to their real names or backgrounds; all they know is that, in order to return to a forgotten Home, they must find objects known as Equilibrium in order to create a wormhole leading back. Crash landing on the planet Sovium, the trio begin a treacherous journey that spans four worlds and leads them to question the ideas of space, time, and what Home really is. Currently in progress.

The Nightmare Virus - a Yu-Gi-Oh! fanfiction that is currently being turned into an incredible manga by Emi-Chan92. I highly encourage you to check out her amazing work here on DA at emi-chan92.deviantart.com/?rnr… .

Shiranai Law - A sci-fi/fantasy book series involving a war between three guild-like, futuristic Societies and a Council of Six after the assassination of the Imperial family. Set in a fantasy world and heavily inspired by video games like the Final Fantasy series, Shiranai Law: Death is the first published book of the series. Six books total are planned. Please feel free to see the book on the publisher's website here: www.silverleafbooks.com/Books_… .

Co-Op Gaming - Another Yu-Gi-Oh! fanfiction I wrote and completed in 2014. It centers around Seto Kaiba and Anzu Mazaki following a near fatal car crash that puts Mokuba and Seto Kaiba's upcoming video game on temporary hold. It has been posted to this website.

Just wanted to apologize to you guys for the severe lack of updates over the past month or so. I was really trying to get into writing some side projects, but between work, reading, and studying so many different languages, it kind of fell by the wayside. 

I don't anticipate things getting any better this summer, as I'll be working on my novel as well as an ESL certification [on top of the continued Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and Korean]. All I'll say for now is that I plan to keep the DA account going, if only to contact you guys every so often with progress on my novel. 
Project Wormhole : Episode 1 : Chapter 4
Project Wormhole is a space fantasy adventure surrounding a woman whose code name is Angelus. She awakens in a body not her own on a lost, abandoned ship with two other individuals. The team are given no indication as to their real names or backgrounds; all they know is that, in order to return to a forgotten Home, they must find objects known as Equilibrium in order to create a wormhole leading back. Crash landing on the planet Sovium, the trio begin a treacherous journey that spans four worlds and leads them to question the ideas of space, time, and what Home really is.

This story is something fun that I started after playing and reading some serious science fiction. All ideas are, obviously, fictional, and any resemblances or similarities to real persons or places is purely coincidental. I also do want to note that these are my ideas, so please do not copy/paste/steal them. 

As always, thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this story. 

If you like my writing, please feel free to check out my home page here, where you can see my published works as well as current projects.

Also, please feel free to critique this or leave comments. I'm always looking to grow as an author, and constructive criticism is always appreciated. :) (Smile)

It finally happened. I FINALLY uploaded, woot woot!

I changed the upload format, as converting from .docx to .html was taking waaaay too much time. I figured uploading the .pdf version would be suitable enough. If you guys have any concerns or problems seeing the document, please let me know! 

Chapter 3 was uploaded today, and I finished chapter 4 early this morning. I'll be proofreading and uploading it tomorrow, then starting chapter 5. 

As always, feel free to leave comments. I said this in the chapter description, but it bears repeating here: I'm always looking to grow as an author, so any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated! 

Thanks again for those who follow.

I decided to post this as the .docx version, as changing it into html to fit DA's formatting was actually keeping me from enjoying the process of uploading. I figured, as long as it's posted, it should be good [though if you have trouble seeing or reading the document, please let me know!].

Hello again!

Just a personal update - Easter break starts tomorrow, and I finally have some breathing room for typing and doing personal activities. Between insomnia, adopting a cat with my boyfriend, and grading tests before the finality of the third marking period, it's been a crazy past two weeks. 

Chapter 3 is completed but needs to be proofread. I also started Chapter 4 and hope to make some progress with that later today. Fingers crossed, I can upload both chapters 3 and 4 this weekend as a sort of Easter break treat.

Yes, I can read Chinese pretty well. I'm still mediocre at listening/speaking it because I have very few people to speak with, but I try to read Chinese at least an hour a day to keep practicing.
