Shots in the Dark - a Gears 5 short fic(un-edited)
They infiltrated by storm.
It was a smooth drop, right on target. Their pods fragmented without error. All systems green. Eight tin soldiers rose in unison against the fury of Sera. A torrent of dust and gravel blew away their pods. They braced against the current, and a strobe of lightning cast their shadows over the cliffs.
"Bots deployed. Dropship’s back above the windflare. Getting interference on the live feeds."
Nine hundred kilometers away, a lieutenant's eyes jagged up and down, left and right, across four separate screens. The keyboard at his desk was sleek and spotless as his armor. A box of wipes sat half empty beside photos of a wife, two children, a dog.
Another lieutenant sat in the next chair over. Her teeth flashed in the light of her monitors.
"Minimal. Bots are fine. Deploy the beacon."
A twisting riftworm of fire was bearing down on them. They ignored the threat. One bot crouched while another unlimbered a package from its back. With steel fingers

Critiques


There's a great sense of kinetic intensity to this one thanks to the particle effects. One can easily imagine a storm of nearly invisib...

My little brother was always bigger than me. Even when he was short in stature, his heart was so damn big. But no matter how big he got, and no matter how much he loved, he remained insecure. And we layered too much pressure on him.

He was the golden child. He was a straight edge, refusing drink or smoke. He was the greatest dancer I never saw in action. I'm told that college girls wanted to dance with him because of how tall, handsome, and quick-footed he was. I believe it. But I was too socially anxious and shy to expose myself to those dances... I only saw him dance when he was little. 

Jimmy shot himself yesterday. I was evacuating from a fire in the Davis Mountains, so I had no cellphone or wi-fi service, but it didn't matter. Jimmy left no note and he didn't reach out to anyone. He simply got off the bus, dropped his stuff, and left us. All evidence points to his death happening within an hour of when I fell asleep after an all-nighter of fire watching and evacuation.

He was only a month away from early graduation. He was going to move here. He was only a month away from his birthday.

There are two projects he helped me plan. He helped me plan my magnum opus, and he helped me plan a Gears of War fan comic. I'm currently trying to pitch the Gears fan comic to The Coalition, in honor of Jimmy's memory. I just wished I'd pitched it sooner. But I wish a thousand things now. And it's all just wind.

I miss you, Jimmy. I love you. Everything I do has been for you, and that won't ever change.

To everyone out there: please hold the ones you love.

I'm just glad we told each other "I love you" the last time we saw each other. And we talked every day, if only on Facebook messenger. But nothing is enough. I've just got to draw these comics. For him. That and my friends are the only things keeping me going.

Please remember Jimmy. He was the purest soul. But this world was too cruel for such integrity.

Jimmy's Hat

My little brother was the light of my life. The light of my entire family. He was our glue, our love, our joy, our heroism, our bravery, and our faith all in one person. He was better than the sum of the rest of us.

We were a dynamic duo. Even though he was eight years younger than me, he was my equal in mind and body. He stood straighter, walked taller, and lived as a man at only 16. We could handle any crowd, any threat, anything so long as we were together. And life was getting so much better. He was only a month away from his birthday, early graduation, and moving back to Fort Davis (where he loved to live).

And without him I'm just half a coin.

Rest in peace, Jimmy.

Pokemon of the Corn - #gymleadersona
You step into my corn maze gym. Little do you know that I'm the first son of the first son of the first son of a farming dynasty. The dirt will still be here when you're gone. The dirt will consume you. Jimmy, Sanchez, and Xcubone will see to that.

Many thanks to Ad and Grub for suggesting I do this. It's been fun. Such a great Twitter trend.

Turns out this plz looks just like me: :iconcrybabyplz:

Hey there, I'm an aspiring artist who used to be a farmer and plans to co-write (and draw 100% of) a graphic novel in 2017. I'm not ready yet, but I should be. And I will be.

I grew up on Calvin & Hobbes, graduated to Gears of War, found delight in just about everything fictional, and (fair warning) I just so happen to like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I've introduced my kid brother to all of these, and while he thinks Pinkie Pie is just about the funniest thing ever, he much prefers chainsawing his way through Locust hordes. Proud of that lad.

As for what I do, I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil. I also write when I have spare time, and at the moment (decade?) I'm finishing a fanfiction. One day I hope to write novels and start my own webcomic on the side. Until then I plan to do a lot of job applications and commission art.

Remember that if you don't like what you see, you can always look elsewhere.
