A Survivor Among ManyStarted 6/29/11
Zane couldn't remember how long he had been out here in this desert. It felt like it had been for days, but he knew better than that. One look at the sun and he knew that the heat only made it feel like it was soaking up more hours of his energy and strength, but he had to continue. Here this 25-year-old was, stuck on a strange planet in a hopefully-not-deserted area by himself what great fun that was.
He snorted and lifted his fabric clad arms to cross them, glancing around as he stepped into his assigned city. Or perhaps it was more appropriate to call it a wasteland. This city wasn't like his, let alone his size. This city was on Earth the first dying planet in this solar system. The plants and other life seemed to flourish on this planet, but not the life that his people were looking for.
His people were the Nowa, simply put they were set to be the protectors of this planet as soon as life like theirs was found here. His planet, called the Yunion, was far
Night Life: Chapter 5All of Ziana's senses were flipped upside-down and rattled violently. For a few horrifying moments, she couldn't see which way was up. Every passing second sent a spasm of pain through her burning lungs. Choking on water, she clawed her arms in the direction of the distant red-orange sunset sky overhead.
After what felt like a few lifetimes, her head finally burst through the surface of the pool. She coughed and gasped. Water spurted out of her mouth. Her throat felt raw as she took in panicked gulps of air. Kicking her legs to remain afloat, she swiped her drenched brown hair from her eyes, looking around with pure terror.
A few colossal beings, four to be exact, occupied the pool along with her. However, they seemed to have not noticed her sudden presence. Two of them were young women, casually floating around and carrying a conversation. The other two were a boy and a girl, children splashing around and tackling each other into the water.
Despite the giants being on the other side o
Back to School!!Back To School
I hated starting at a new school this year.
Senior year was supposed to be the most exciting year of my life well at least until I graduate college, turn twenty-one and get married. Senior year was supposed to be my year but my parents had changed all that when they enrolled me in the 'immersion' program. For so many years humans and giants had been kept separated from one another but now, not only were there enough giants in the world that they no longer could be homeschooled, but they were now being permitted to be co-educated.
I thought it was a great idea, in theory, but certainly did not want to be part of the immersion process. Not everyone was on board with this idea and I was aware of that. There were some giants that still believed that humans were either 'too fragile' to be around, or that they should be treated as though we were beneath them. It was our planet! I didn't understa
Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
