Spaceship Wrecked

I awake among the spaceship’s wreckage, floating in thick dark muck. I have no idea how long I was in hypersleep, or what the hell planet I’m on. Earth’s first interstellar mission dies here with me. A bird-like monster, oozing black goo, lets out a sickly caw. I scan the horizon for any signs of la...

Re: The Power

Presumably he was born with the power of was given it against his will. i will have to think of a way to portray that better. Thanks for the input, it is always good to see how the reader perceiv...

All I Have To Do Is Wait

Light, planets and stars pile into the black hole into which Radical Man tossed me, relentlessly crushing me, the pain unfathomable. At first, I regretted being immortal and indestructible. I yearned to die, but now, I have grown accustomed to the pain. My mind is, once again, clear. Eventually, all...

Sacrifice

“What would you sacrifice to end your suffering?” He says, calm and serene. “I have already sacrificed my youth and my body.” I pull at my hair. Tears and spittle combine in my mouth. “I am nothing but a stump! I have nothing left to give!” “I want your soul.” “No.” I steel myself and straighten. I ...

Shootout on Isle 3

“This is our grocery store, see.” Said Orange around his cigar. The thieves stood frozen in various stages of cracking open cash registers, ringed by a cornucopia of produce, each packing tiny heat. Orange stood apart from the throng holding a Tommy gun low under his protruding rind. The thieves com...

Times are Changing

“What the Hell!” RUD1 nearly slipped in the puddle. With his oculars, he determined it was urine. “Did you urinate on the floor?” “Um,” QIX7 replied, “I just installed bladder hardware. I’m not used to it, yet. Sorry.” “Back when I was newly constructed, we didn’t have bodily functions. We burned oi...

I love her. Her gorgeous vegetation. Her wistful clouds, dancing intricate patterns above beautiful oceans. My only weather is evaporated sweat from long dead humans, still clinging to my rusted surface. The dust of shed human skin blankets me. Since the last human, she has healed, recovered from th...
