Jupiter’s Gambit

This weeks story is inspired by westerns as well as the various cantina scenes from Star Wars. Don’t really think I need to say much more than that, so here is Jupiter’s Gambit. Faded and damaged baby blue paint peeling down from the tops of the walls signifies how little care is taken of theContinue reading “Jupiter’s Gambit”

Forging Steel

Time has come for another story post. This week I’ve got a story that was inspired by the Halo Universe, the Spartan program to be exact. Yet, it has my own twist on the general idea of creating the perfect soldier, who isn’t meant to be as perfect or as anonymous as a Spartan-II. ButContinue reading “Forging Steel”

Aurion Reflex

OK, this is not the story I originally intended on writing, not at all. In fact what I started, twice over, was a Sci-Fi Western but I couldn’t make it work, sadly. It’s scrapped now. Not sure if I’ll ever revisit it. In its place I came up with this story, quite inexplicably. This IContinue reading “Aurion Reflex”

Pieces In Play

This week’s story is influenced by Halo. If you know the franchise you’ll probably be able to tell. If not don’t worry it isn’t important other than this is a military sci-fi story. It has a bit of a twist to it too. Not going to spoil it but this is a longer story atContinue reading “Pieces In Play”

Grass Is Greener

OK this one was a difficult one to write. Not because of concept or subject matter but because I just simply struggled with it. I had two false starts. First I got to about three thousand words, then I decided I didn’t like where it was going, deleted half of it, rewrote it back toContinue reading “Grass Is Greener”

Scraping Stones

Story day has come back around. This week it’s a Sci-Fi story (about 11,300 words long) that is set in space, hundreds of years from now. It’s a bleak take on a possible future, but that’s just the setup for the story itself. Without saying too much I will let you know that everything isContinue reading “Scraping Stones”

Augur

And back to both longer story (about 14,000 words) and Sci-Fi. Truth be told while the setting is Sci-Fi that is not the focus of the story. Really, I would term this a psychological horror. Don’t really want to say much more than that because I might reveal something that could spoil the story. Instead,Continue reading “Augur”

Creeping Death

I’m sorry everyone, but I failed to keep this story as short as the others recently. So it’s a longer one (roughly 15,700 words). Not going to say much about it other than they have a really rough time, the characters I mean, in this Sci-Fi story. So without further delay here is Creeping Death.Continue reading “Creeping Death”

Issues In A Vacuum

Right! I’m getting straight to my point this week and that is, this is not the story I was intending to write. Not at all. This wasn’t even a planned story. I sat down with a completely different idea in mind, but when I started writing this is the story that came out. Not complaining,Continue reading “Issues In A Vacuum”

Monster’s In Play

Hi! Story day has come round again and this week I have a story that changed quite a bit from initial idea to final piece. Originally it was going to have another section to it. However, I decided I didn’t like or see the need for that section, so I did away with it andContinue reading “Monster’s In Play”
