The weather was trying its best to fill the city with despair, and the still, black smog covering the sky was making it obvious. Anyone not used to air so dirty would probably suffocate. The city was clogged with grimy blocks, barely leaving any room for small concrete roads, all of them almost empty, making some space for the daredevils who decided to expose themselves to the pollution.
Cirra was one of them.
She was on her way to the orphanage. Her heartbeat would accelerate every time she saw any small movement. A feeling of releif swept over her as soon as she realised it was just another mutated cockroach. Even though it was her usu

A young woman was lying awake in the early hours of the morning. She sat up in her bed, her bare arms folded over one another. Her nighttime garb was a simple short-sleeved shirt and a pair of black shorts. She was twenty-five years old, living in the chaotic fray of a metropolis. Earth was noisy compared to most other places she had li

A Clockwork GoldbergThe flashing, thrumming device was almost mesmerizing in its futuristic simplicity. Pulses of violet light chased each other, seemingly at random, across its front panel, while brilliant blue-white electric arcs surged upward from its central coil via a Jacob's Ladder: two tapered copper antennae reaching nearly to the ceiling. The combination cast an eerie and ever-changing series of shadows across the figures of the two men observing it.A Clockwork Goldberg1 month ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The older of the pair was a dignified, gray-haired gentleman with a silk bow tie and bowler hat. His straining waistcoat, however, recalled slimmer days long since past; while his measured silence and slight frown spoke of an ego nearly as large as his girth. After some time, he turned to the slender brunet beside him and asked:
"This, then, is your clock?"
The younger man nodded, a quick jerky movement reminiscent of a wary passenger pigeon eying its captor. "Entirely electromagnetic. Is it not magnificent?" His voice had an odd accent: not quite Ge
Memories of a Time to ComeHe laid on the ground, his heart felt at a stale calmness. Chrome yellow eyes stared at the charcoal-colored heavens tinged verdantly of golden blossoms and woven by ruby lines beaming across the gloom. He could not hear, the sounds were distant, but the ground was trembling, like a chorus of million lives pounding their feet unto the soil; the fainting sensation echoed within him — the countless ghosts that marched on and on within his memories.Memories of a Time to Come2 weeks ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Aira-ty woke with a panicked gasp of air as her eyes jolted open and she looked up at the cloud covered sky through her cracked visor as the rain poured down around her. She turned her head to the side, her viewscreen fizzling with static as its optics tried to process through the damaged system. All around her, the shattered bodies of her troops lay sprawled in death where the droids had shot them down. It had been a slaughter. She'd been unable to get them the support they'd needed and they had died for her failure. She'd failed them. Failed Jango's memory. Failed herself. Her viewscreen flickered again and she reached up, flicking the cat

“Bold is getting hulled!”
“Majestic is breaking up!”
“Gallant has sustained heavy damage!”
“Avarice is reporting multiple hull breaches, they're losing power!”
The reports kept coming, one after the other, as more and more ships received damage and were knocked out of the battle.
“Don't let them through!” Commodore Andora Steele roared from her command chair. “If they get past us, we won't have a home to return to!”
She need not have reminded her crew of that, they all knew what was at stake here, all knew that a loss here meant the end of not just the war, but of
The Creed of the Promethean Fists“We are the will of the Emperor. His burning wrath is ours. Fire may pour from our fingers yet we remain unburned. Lightning may burst forth from our eyes yet we stand unhurt. The earth may tremble and the rock may split yet we shall not yield. In this burning inferno we stand defiantly in the face our enemies. The foes of the Emperor shall fall before us; for we know no fear. Their fortresses shall fall and their strongholds crumble before our fury. We are the angels of death.

I was overwhelmed by a sense of déjà vu. Haven't I been here before?
Massive tree trunks surrounded the familiar park square. In the center, a simple small fountain rested. Whenever I glanced around to take in the rest of the park, my eyes kept returning to the fountain against my will, as if the water was pulling them.
I didn't like water. That much I figured out from the way my eyes nervously strayed back to it a couple feet away. As I walked around it, I spotted a yellow fur ball the size of a baseball swimming on the surface.
At the sight, I gasped and reeled back, a hand to my mouth. I felt my memory

They sat together on the beach side by side watching the horizon. They had been there throughout the night, mostly in silence, just being together. The sky was bathed in a cascade of greens, purples, and reds. The auroras had been present since the start of event, now they were so bright that they blocked out most of the stars. Only the last fleeing shuttles broke the dramatic skyscape, too distant to hear, their powerful fusion engines glowed a vibrant white making them look like inverted meteors falling up into the sky.

"Aww, did we wake you up? That is soooo unfortunate, seeing as how you hardly sleep as it is," Jim said in his most annoying, mocking voice possible.
Moriarty lounged in his chair, with a bound and gagged John kneeling in front of him, facing away from the consulting criminal and towards the consulting detective. Despite having been rudely awakened after days of being exhausted, John's eyes were wide and focused, confusion and fear flashing in them as he gazed up at his startled friend. Behind John, Moriarty aimlessly toyed with a gun he'd pulled out of his suit pocket.

The alarm wakes you immediately, a loud droning horn that almost gives you a heart attack. You don’t know where it’s coming from, but the moment you sit up in the creaking bed, it stops.
You rub your head. You can barely remember what happened the previous day, but now, you’re in an unfamiliar place. It looks and feels like a child’s room; narrow walls decorated with flowers and other shapes, a dirty pink carpet at your feet, a large empty wardrobe just across from the small bed you sit in now. The room is dark; the only slivers of light come from the cracks in the boards that cover the window.

Cron1cas telepatasSi uno busca la palabra telepatía en internet te hablarán de esa maravillosa habilidad como algo ficticio, inverosímil, como algo que nunca podría hacerse en la vida real, como un pobre recurso usado en la mayoría de creaciones, ya sean escritos, cómics novelas o películas, algo burdo pero maravilloso, imposible e increíble, lejano de la realidad. Diversos estudios probaron que la telepatía no podría lograrse, no sino hasta que el ser humano logre introducirse en la mente humana como un dispositivo electrónico y todos los científicos saben, o creen saber, que para eso pasarán años, décadas. Pues esos estudios se hicieron hace años y aun hoy, día cercano a avances electrónicos jamás imaginados con anterioridad, no se ha logrado hacer una maquinita, un bicho electrónico o una gran maquinaCron1cas telepatas1 month ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Taxi Girl Ch 3 On my drive back home, I came up with a plan. During my stay in St. Cloud, I filed through my old books and toys. Among them was a Babysitter's Club book - yeah, I read 'em, I admit - where the babysitter named Susie ended up behind the wheel of a stationwagon. Though she hadn't gotten her driver's license yet - she might've had a permit - Susie was driving her neighbor's children to the movie rental store.Taxi Girl Ch 33 weeks ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

He was gleefully sprinting through the desolate forest, all the leaves were dead so the overall hue was dark, and brown. It created an ominous feeling, but the boy was immune to it. He kept frolicking like he was in a great plane of flowers. Behind him a plume of toxic smoke rocketed towards the ceiling of the planet. The boy felt a prick of heat hit the back of his legs, exposed by his bright orange shorts. He turned around, he had to shield his eyes from the piercing light invading his retinas He could only peer over his now raised arm, trying to decipher the situation.
A tear rolled down his face as he faced the realization of what lied before him. He knew little of atomic wa
