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)

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)

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.

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)

Bluff (From the Archives)

"Don't do it," the Captain warned.  Kenl smirked. What did the Captain know about how to use these jewels? Nothing. He thought they were just treasure to be plundered like anything else.  But Kenl knew. She knew the truth.  "Wat?" she spat back, purposefully dropping her home accent into her voice. She could see the… Continue reading Bluff (From the Archives)

Clues (From the Archives)

“Why,” Cassie groaned as she put her head on her desk. The system had logged her out again and she needed to get to the fingerprint database to cross reference the results from forensics. “What?” Terry poked his head above his cubicle, his glasses sitting askew on his nose. No one would even guess he… Continue reading Clues (From the Archives)

Leave me Be (From the Archives)

Vekna wiped her blade clean with a bloodied rag.  The blood sluced off the end of the blade, dripping onto the muddy stone floor. The body of the Corps agent lay at her feet, limbs splayed in an unnatural way. “Oops,” Vekna said, sheathing her sword. The Corps were so inefficient with the people they… Continue reading Leave me Be (From the Archives)

Before (A Teacup Story)

“It was all so good,” Tristan sighed, into his drink “before you lot got involved.” The bodies didn’t talk back. They never talked back. “You know,” he said, reaching over the bar and pulling a bottle from under the shelf, “I really wish that time magic was a thing. That I could go back to… Continue reading Before (A Teacup Story)

Confrontation (From the Archives)

“FIGHT ME!” Tranegath roared at Hulun. Hulun struggled, his head still ringing from the previous blow. It would not be long before the guards came to separate them, but this was his chance to do some real damage to the bully of the prison. Hulun coughed, trying to distract Tranegath as he reached down to… Continue reading Confrontation (From the Archives)
