Hi! This is my first story here, and I'm still getting the hang of it, so wish me luck!

(Also please note the autocorrect on this device doesn't function properly so be prepared for a few weird mistakes.)

Here we go!

My name is Reese Fletcher. I'm a sort of geeky person - computers, phones, tvs, you name it; I can fix it, and give you an annoying geeky joke about it.

I  tend to get A's and A*'s an all my tests, and my social life is pretty good (more like barely adequate), so you could say my life is dangerously close to perfect.

But then something happened, a couple of months ago, that changed my life forever.

Th​at's exactly why you need to read this. Your very existence depends on it. So if you want the chance to live 'till your next birthday, DO NOT STOP READING.

They're coming.

Short Story Content Descriptions:

Issue One - "Executable Forgiveness" (Drama, Sci-fi) - Estin is the first robot to be given agency; that is to say, given full human rights. However, his project is called into question after he's hacked and his integrity is compromised. Can he convince his wife it was only a one-off?

Issue Two - "Love on a Bed of Leaves and Letters" (Drama) - Julius Pessoa struggles with his guilt over the death of his young wife and his indecision to receive the gift she has left him in her craft room. Fall is a time of melancholy, but it is also one of promised renewal...

Issue Three - "In the Garden" (Sci-fi, Time Travel) - Dr. Leandra Hayes meets with her long-time colleague and ex-lover, Terence Whitaker, to approve a new companion-model robot he's about to release. When Lean meets Ema though, her understanding of reality is ripped apart.

Issue Four - "Forget Me Not" (Sci-Fan, Tragedy) - Spomenka and The Bounty Hunter fall in love on the dark-side of a terraformed Mars. However, disappointment and bloodshed are just around the corner.

Issue Five - "Cloven Dreams" (Tragedy) - These five sentences were written for a flash contest titled "Break My Heart".

Issue Six - "Penny" (Mystery) - Blue and Penny grow up together, bonding over fairies and magical gardens. Blue struggles to maintain that lifelong connection as they get older, but  Penny has a secret that will make or break Blue's understanding of the word "lifelong".

Issue Seven - "John Ghost" (Humor, Sci-fi) - A crude take on the traditional ghost story. Poops are made, phones are dropped, lessons are learned. An on-the-clock mechanic realizes that cheating the system might be inviting the company of strange bathroom-fellows.

Issue Eight - "The Mold" (Tragedy) - Fraya wants to be more than just a friend, so she makes Laura Lane into more than her best friend. She turns Laura Lane into a fallen angel, thus transforming herself into God's written word. Of course all Hell breaks loose.

Many years after the post-environmental apocalypse and the reconstruction of civilization and nature, the world populations united as one nation, " the Federal Republic of New Hope", ruled by one government with the slogan "Freedom, Peace, and Justice."

Mankind can be the builder and the destroyer. This is the same old loop. People believed in the world they promised to see; however, some group of human mysteriously gained the special gift. On ther other hand, it became their curse when the government alienated them from normal people. "H01 Case: is the abbreviation of their strange symptom and "the Risk" refers to those who have the symptom. Under the Act 2966, anyone who had been judged to the Risk and the Suspect or the corrupted human must be healed.

In San Bosa, a small district of Irina State, Alexis Davis was a girl whose future shone brightly. One day, everything turn upside down. She was arrested and convicted as the Suspect. The girl was sent to the rehabilitation program with her friends. There, they were caged in the seem-to-be futuristic paradise where the other captives resided together until the proper time for the experiment. No one knew how and which method the authority would apply to test with them. Alexis started to question herself.

What really happened during the post-apocalypse and the after?

What the purpose of this?

What will happen to them?

No one can answer.

She must discover it by herself.

This is a normal version without any mature content and less violent for all types of readers.

Earth had become stale, on the verge of uninhabitable. We had conquered space travel to the darkest reaches of space. But, as humans usually are, they become curious, then greedy. Once the Andromeda Galaxy was fully explored, the people of earth fled to  colonize a new planet. They chose a little blue planet that seemed to be teeming with life. The planet was almost like earth. The inhabitants as well were as humanoid as can be. The humans of earth had heard of this distant planet, Oasis. Heard of it's magnificent beauty, abundance of plant and wildlife. All kept on this small planet. In the beginning there was peace as well as intermingling of the species. It was  a beacon to all life in that small sector of Andromeda. But, eventually, no one really knows why, but the planet Oasis began to change. It lost its color, it's life. The land became red and dusty,  akin to the planet mars. The last of the inhabitants of Oasis perished, except for the Umlilos. A race as old as the planet itself was the last living creatures as  the planet began to slowly die off. Years later, Oasis was colonized, inhabited by earth humans and other beings. A thriving metropolis in a small capital of the world, Poseidon. Welcome, to the new Oasis.

Your standard post apocalyptic setting: Ash covers the earth, a small community hunkers down in an old power station tower and a girl from the past with bright blue eyes awakens, blind to the world around her. Joined by a gang of not so talkative survivors and one very talkative one, they must traverse this bleak grey world, devoid of colour, and maybe in the process inject a bit of life back into it. Because when things are grey, all you can try and do is see the bright side. Course it's not always so easy.

Short Story

The Doulosi must be contained.

They operate technology with thoughts alone. They bend electricity, water, and fire with simple gestures and commands. They shape the fabric of reality around them.

If the Doulosi cannot be controlled... then they must be divided.

Collected are short stories set in the Doulosi Universe.They take place after the events of The Glass Cloisterand before those that take place in Kinigos Island; between the years 2057 and 2077.

1 - Media- An in-person meet up between members of a Doulosi conspiracy forum turns deadly when one of the members is revealed to be a wolf in wool.

2 - Ricochet- An Illinois clan is torn apart by threats within and without. At the heart of the conflict, two brothers must choose between fraternity and their fragile morality.

3 - Television- A boy and his mother struggle to survive in the ruins of Motor City. When his mother is threatened, the boy reveals a hidden talent.

4 - Noodles- Two beat cops in Genmachi, New York debate the existence of "good Doulosi" and come to a startling realization about each other.

5 - Rivers- A hydromancer girl forced to live and work in an ink factory decides that she would rather be doing anything else. She knows just who to wait for to make her escape.

6 - Widower- A man lives peaceably in the shade of Savanah's Skystream, saving up to heal his ill daughter. But when a posse of socialites upsets his way of life, he's forced to rekindle old flames.

7 - Rogue- An Interceptor infiltrates a Doulosi gang of pyromancers, intent on destroying them from the inside. Instead, she finds solace in their leader's arms.

8 - Savior- A Doulosi couple on the run find refuge in the scarred heart of Chicago. Reestablishing ties, they intend to plant the seeds of revolution in the minds of the city's disgruntled people... to unsurprisingly explosive effect.

Next Update: 25 JUL 19

This is the second installment in the Doulosi Universe. If you're ever lost or confused about the significance of certain events/characters, you are more than welcome and are encouraged to read the previous entry, The Glass Cloister. However, if something still isn't jiving, please let me know. Just like these books, I'm heckin' open and criticism is always much appreciated.

The Doulosi must be divided.

They operate technology with thoughts alone. They bend electricity, water, and fire with simple gestures and commands. They shape the fabric of reality around them.

If the Doulosi cannot be divided... Mankind is surly doomed.

"Doulos magic is not going to save the world. There will be no saviors. There are no innocents to defend if we go to war... My mother will never accept that."

Beauregard Colette has been on his own for the last ten years, working as a research and development team lead at one of America's premiere tech companies, Kinigos Industries. He gave up his Free Doulosi identity all those years ago in order to survive in a world increasingly at odds with unregulated users of magic. He was content with his work, appreciating the company of artificial people over their fleshy counterparts.

Of course, his precious routine is upset when his mother, a very public Free Doulosi leader figure, invites him back to the fold for a peaceful family gathering where it is assumed all the Free Doulosi royalty will be grouped together for the first time in nearly two decades. Under orders to funnel all information back to the Interceptor Corps, Beau is sponsored by his company to take Nina Colette up on her offer--as a show of good faith in his human overlords, if nothing else.

But Beau knows what his mother really wants, and it isn't peace.
