Cut OutRecommended listening: "Dark on Me" by Starset, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yntDx4Y4baw. There's a long outro after 4:42 that is not necessary for my listening suggestion.Cut Out by lalaith913
Isaac had intended on scolding his dear friend as soon as he got the chance to speak with her, but once Iris’s voice came through the phone, he lost all courage to tear her to pieces.
“Don’t do that to me ever again,” was all he managed and he couldn’t sound angry because he was so relieved that she was alive.
“Do what?” she asked, as if she didn’t know.
“Leave,” Isaac said. “Don’t leave in the middle of the night without saying goodbye to me.”
Iris was quiet, but he could still hear her breathing. “You would’ve tried to stop me,” she said after a few breaths.
She was right, of course he would have tried to stop her. “I know, I just want you to be safe.”
“I am safe,” Iris said. “I
Twice-Dead“Come in,” Iris called in response to the knocking on the lab door. She batted at the itch on her forehead with the back of her forearm, the other hand busy holding scissors and matted hair. She heard the metal door swing open as she continued to work on the skull of the dead girl and waited for her two assistants to wheel a new body up for her to work on when she was finished with the current one, but she didn’t hear the clacking of the wheels against the sterile floor, or the shuffling footsteps of her assistants trying to maintain a single pushing speed between the two of them. In fact, the only sound was the blades of her scissors shearing through the knotted tresses that blocked Iris’s access to the corpse’s skull.Twice-Dead by lalaith913
Iris swallowed, a greasy ball of nerves sitting sloppily inside her stomach while she worked up the resolve to lift her head and see who had entered. Something was wrong. She wasn’t sure how she knew, but she knew. She tightened her g
Where None SleepEven a dragonsteel bullet would barely fracture dragon scales, but if you happened to chance upon a chink in a dragon’s armor- a place where a scale had fallen loose- a dragonsteel bullet would bite deep, ripping through the hide and flesh and organs until eventually running into bone where it would stop. Dragonsteel bullets seldom broke through bone, though it wasn’t impossible since dragonsteel was iron fortified with dragon bone, but by the time the bullet got near enough to bone, the velocity was often too slow to do much more damage. A single bullet wouldn’t be fatal to a dragon, unless of course the chink in the armor was on the skull and the hide underneath led to the brain.Where None Sleep by lalaith913
“Now, Kesirine, I pray you aren’t thinking about wasting one of my bullets on an already slain dragon.”
Kesirine lowered her pistol away from the bare space on the dragon’s skull where the scale had come loose. It would be a clean shot.

RichterI was still breathing static fog,Richter by dreamsinstatic
coursing through wire cage lungs.
Copper coated tongue
sparks in shades of orange and gold,
I feel the surge
and my body comes alive,
pins and needles
shivering in the flux
of the obsolete circuitry
burning in my chest.
burn white lights into my eyes,
move the green earth
in cosmic undulations,
a mirage of the dancing atmosphere
I cannot deny,
nor confirm the existence of.
tectonic thumps in the fault
of my ribs,
the rattling of rebar and bone,
my Embarcadero spine
into the rift
of unexplored daylight.
Rebirth in the tomb
of this familiar darkness
that is I,
a trembling ridge
of white noise,
an analog pulse
when all the world
Most of what I post are vignettes or just bits of free-writing, though there are several completed short stories. Feedback is always appreciated.|
