OUTWORLD:  SUN DOGS
DRAMATIS PERSONAE
Sorcha O’Riordan (female Red Fox, age 25)
Summerkin! How Sorcha O’Riordan loved her little homeworld. She lay back in the dewy morning grass of the meadow near her family home, the sun warming her ginger fur and lifting her spirit. She had never known another world and, she reckoned quite confidently, she would never need to.
 The distant toll of the school bell reached her vulpine ears, and she knew she was late again. But hey, it could all wait. She’d take the yelling from Miss Cohen later. She yawned and put her paws behind her head, watching the few sparse clouds drift through the bright blue sky.
 The bell tolled once more, and Sorcha decided to get up and go. This’ll all be here when I finish for the day, she thought. She got to her sneaker-clad feet and made for the wooden fence at the edge of the meadow, slipping under the slats and heading for the forest path.
 It was a short way up the pa

14th AUGUST 7080, CITY OF BLUEPOINT, OMARIL
It was an overcast, muggy day in Bluepoint. But, as Brewster O’Keeffe knew, muggy and overcast was sandal season on Omaril, and the planet was indeed well into summer. From the café table at which the mutt sat, looking out over the waterfront near the city spaceport, he couldn’t help but stare at the sky.
 What had happened on the Laika still came back to him sometimes. He’d wake up screaming, only to smile sheepishly at Kelly when he realized he’d woken her up as well. She understood, but she had to work as well, and it was putting an unspoken strain on their relationship.
 Brewster put it aside as the bubbly chatter from the res

OUTWORLD: Subterranean Epilogue 1/2
Madison’s eyes opened, and she awoke with a start. She blinked and tried to get it together, expecting to see the dormitory on the Laika.
 That wasn’t what she was seeing now.
 Her visual receptors were a little snowy, but from what she could make out she was lying down on some kind of table or rack, and her efforts to move her arms and legs resulted in nothing more than the realization that she was clamped to the table-rack-thing by her neck, wrists and ankles.
 Only her neck retained any kind of freedom to move, and so she tipped her head sideways to get a better look at things – and Madison found herself looking at… herself.
 For half a second, Madison was convinced she was merely peering at a reflection, but no. She could feel the other’s breath on her, smell her almost-living fur. She was clamped to a table, like Madison. More to the point, this face was smiling slightly, whereas Madison herself knew that that was the

The Bunyip let out a thunderous bellow and charged, heading straight for Madison, its maw wide open to swallow her whole.
 Madison backed into the Volvo excavator behind her; its cab was the nearest shelter she had. She clambered onto the wheel and scrabbled with the cab door, getting it open just as the creature smashed into the vehicle, rocking it violently.
 She collapsed into the operator’s seat and caught sight of the others; Tutter was firing her submachine gun at the Bunyip and doing little to it. It paid her no mind, though – its rows of eyes were firmly on Madison.
 Its front limbs grew long, pointed knife-like claws, and it reared back before sending one straight though the cab glass at Madison’s muzzle. She yelped and ducked as the claw stabbed into the headrest, barely missing her cheek fur, and ducked again as the Bunyip lashed out again, its other claw slamming into the seat.
 Madison scrabbled to open Whitney’s pack and growled

7th SEPTEMBER 7079, OSA SALVAGE SHIP LAIKA
The last survivor in the crew commons died only minutes after the guards had arrived. The majority of the Laika’s crew was dead, and those still alive were little better.
 “Gawd, look at it,” one of the guards muttered, peering out into the commons. “It’s like Coopari all over again.”
 Madison looked to her companions. Brewster and Henriette were still non-verbal and Milan and Whitney were both badly injured. Another guard, evidently having received medical training at some point prior to now, was examining Whitney’s wounds. “Can we get her to the medlab?” Milan asked the guard.
 The Security Three squad leader answered. “Not a chance. It’s c

Everyone backed away from the door as it clanged and shuddered. Madison held on to Brewster, and he held on back.
 And then the slamming stopped.
 Silence from that quarter was followed by silence from the crewers, but their collective unease remained. “Has it stopped?” was the inarticulate question of one crewer, the Retriever engineer.
 Madison’s ears twittered as they picked something up from nearby. It sounded like crying.
 And it was coming from the other side of the door.
 Brewster clearly heard it as well; his muzzle scrunched up as he frowned. “Is that coming from Maizy?”
 The sobbing continued. “Please,” said a silvery voice, “please, let me in. I’m scared.”
 “It’s Maizy’s voice all right,” Henriette said from beside them.
 Maizy sniffled. “It’s out there. It’s after me. Please let me in.”

Maizy Sark lay unconscious, unmoving, in her bunk as Sherry Templeton and another medic fussed over her, adjusting dosages, inserting IV lines and correcting readouts. Once in a while the little Wolf would twitch or mumble, but otherwise she showed no signs of life.
 The door to the observation area whirred open, and Madison and the others looked up as Templeton breezed in and went to Whitney. “Okay, we’ve got her on an even keel and she’s responding to light stimuli,” the Fox reported, “but we’re getting some odd readings from her.”
 Madison’s unease grew. I knew it.
 “What’s that mean?” Whitney enquired of the medic.
 “Her neural patterns are a little ways off from normal,

Madison and the others were almost immediately apprehended by the Laika’s quarantine personnel and placed into decontamination, being checked over for any possible bacteria in Pomattan water that may have hitched a ride. That done, and with no threats detected, they were ordered to report to the captain for an incident evaluation.
 Whitney seemed to be acutely aware of the implications therein. As mission leader, she would be accountable for her actions with regard to the safety of her team. With one member and a guard missing, and another guard dead, this would not reflect well on her, Madison knew. She would likely be considered to have been totally negligent under OSA guidelines. Whitney plainly knew it as well; she was tearful and shaky.

The shotgun kicked back against Madison so hard that it nearly sent her flying, and the blast went crashing through the window just opposite, bending the steel frame out as it went.
 The would-be target had managed to hit the deck just as the weapon went off; as she recovered from her moment of shock, Madison could see that it was black, four-limbed and had a long serrated claw protruding from its right wrist. She blinked, and it looked a lot less alien.
 More to the point, it looked like an OSA security guard with a large knife in his paw.
 Brewster was yelling. “Madison, stop! It’s one of the guards!”
 The guard moaned and lifted his head up. Madison recognized him as the Husky who had been speaking of the Vermin Wars back on the OSA ship. His eyes fixed on her. “I nearly got shot with my own damn weapon!

6th SEPTEMBER 7079, POMATTAN CAVERNS
Madison’s self-recriminatory notion regarding her lack of armament was dispelled further on past the fossil. A glint of something at odds with its immediate surroundings near the water caught her attention. She nudged Brewster and pointed to the riverbank a few paces away. “There’s something over there.” She started toward it, finding something caught up amid some small stalagmites.
 Brewster was at her side. “Whitney’s radio,” he breathed.
 Madison stooped to retrieve it, the water’s spray kicking up over her and dampening her fur. She gave the device a quick once-over, finding nothing wrong with it. A sudden flash of Tigris Prime afflicted her memory, and she sighed.
 “Does it work?” Brewster asked from behind her, barely audible over the riv

It was dark and damp inside the remains of the wrecked orbital; luckily, shoulder lamps and, in the case of some of the security officers, night-vision visors, were on hand to cut a path through the inky gloom.
 Madison and the other salvagers kept together as they went, pooling their light and relying on their own innate senses of night vision to fill in the dark spots, while the guards took forward and rear positions. The yawning cavern they had descended into upon first boarding the downed ship had long since given way to more cramped, near-vertical corridors, and a feeling of claustrophobia was beginning to set in.

A lovely big hiya to you all! Thanks to anyone who's commented, faved or otherwise contributed positively. Ultra juicy special thanks go to :iconiron-ed: for his wonderful fanfics, and :icondanielhudson560: for all those faves! You guys rock! ;)

Now to business: with my latest Outworld arc completed, I'm not sure what lies ahead on that front. I've got a ton of ideas, but some of them really need hammering into shape. I'm also starting a couple of new jobs that will likely take up a lot of my time.

At any rate, thanks again to all! Expect the unexpected and don't eat goldfish.
