Outpost-347 (A Teacup Story)

The Spring storms hammered the side of the house. Gwen could hear them repeatedly slamming into the habi-house’s side, making the whole construction shake as it did so. The newbies to Outpost-347 were cowering in their bunks. Some were crying, Gwen could hear them. A few had even clustered around the escape pods, desperate to… Continue reading Outpost-347 (A Teacup Story)

I'm Here (From the Archives)

Fey pressed her hand up against the cold plastic of the ship’s window. Outside, the stars hung in the blackness of space, quietly glistening in the otherwise lifeless vacuum. "Do you think it’s out there? Earth?” Fey asked her husband, Kegro. “I hope so,” Kegro said, as he wrapped his arms around Fey, his hands… Continue reading I'm Here (From the Archives)

Fear (100 Words)

The feeling was not of anger or of hatred. It was the bone sinking, gut wrenching quiet whisper of doubt.  It was the thoughts Felicity didn't even know where there until Gerrard had pointed them out. Her snappiness. Her temper.  She was scared, scared for them all, but she'd never admit it.  She'd never admit… Continue reading Fear (100 Words)

A World, Changed (March Update)

I spent a long time debating what to title this blog. “A World in Chaos”. “A World in Panic”. “A World gone mad”. But I decided to go with “A World, Changed”. Because yes, the spread of Corvid-19 is creating a situation unprecedented in the modern world. Quarantine. Social Distancing. Shops and spaces closing down.… Continue reading A World, Changed (March Update)

Burning Red (From the Archives)

Suzza sat on her bed, surrounded by the ripped pieces of her letters. Each one had contained the years of heartache and love that she had poured into her relationship with Netr. Before she had joined the Tombhunters, before when he had promised that she was his only and that she had his heart. And… Continue reading Burning Red (From the Archives)

Patron's Choice (A Teacup Story)

“So, big day,” Merisa said. Gaele scowled further. She could feel the knots in her stomach already. Testing day was the worst. Testing for your robes doubly so. But this, this was worse than any testing that had come before. The testing for your patron, the supernatural being who would grant you access to magics… Continue reading Patron's Choice (A Teacup Story)

"How To" – Weather

The weather. Not something that would normally be considered paramount in a worldbuilding session. It’s a thing that, unless fundamental to your story (e.g. Stormlight Archives’ “Highstorms”), it is part of your patchwork of the world that enriches the world of your story. However, if you think about your day-to-day life, you still decide a… Continue reading "How To" – Weather
