Drink Me

Looking down into the green bottle, I know that the apothecary has served me well. It may be tiny but I know that it’s just enough to get me to join my love in the other world. Just enough for me to die and to end my suffering. I see the body of my love laid before me in the crypt, and I take the dr...

Ah, fulfilling common sayings... lots of fun. I'm vividly reminded of that graverobbing bit in young Frankenstein.

Well, most studies are kind of fun to do, like this one about identifying eight different faces that I did...

Panic

She began to sink within the blue water down into the deep abyss, lungs burning for oxygen. Get air, her mind chanted. She kicked her legs, trying to break away from this dragging, but she sank further and further away from the glimmering light of the surface. Assaulting emotions. She had to breathe...

This Is War

The two armies stood across the field from one another, preparing for battle. It was inevitable, really, that it would come to this. “The challenge was just too great to go unanswered,” one militant said to reporters. It had been escalating for months, from confrontations on casual streets to small ...

Empty

I enter the pit, unwillingly, the lasers trained on my back to discourage any sudden movements. Avoiding stepping in the grime on the floor of the darkness, I walk to the one bright spot, the pod. I hesitate, before stepping inside. It whirs to life, trapping me behind a buzzing blue energy field. T...

The Professor

In his richly furnished study, Professor Halden was yet again burning the midnight oil on a new project of his. He suddenly glanced down and noticed a white Persian cat on the rug. How the hell did it get in here? He wondered. The cat blinked behind a pair of small spectacles that made it bear a str...
