[SPOILERS] "Let's Talk About..." is where Blondemaverick waxes about things she hasn't written yet, talks about writing as a process, reviews recent stories she might have read, and basically puts off actually writing anything of value.

She mentions the F-word at least two times in every post, so that's why this is R.

This is considered an open discussion, so there will be SPOILERS... hence the spoiler warning. [END SPOILERS]

There's a whole world just under the skin of ours. It is a seductive place where the color of your hair garners you inherent power over the minds and bodies of those that answer to it. It is a vassal state with dubious morals and even darker appeal... It is a game to those who play in it... and a slaughterhouse to those who do not.

Welcome to Downtown. You answer to the Platinum.

Caerwyn Adams has empathetic dystrophy.She simply doesn't react to situations like "normal folk should". If you told her she would be running for her life from a cabal of cannibals, get shot at by a gangster's right-hand assassin, and meet a gorgeous Hollywood singer within the next twenty-four hours, she would sigh.

When it rains, it pours, after all. If it can go wrong, it will.

And since she's running with a washed-up solo artist like Dante Castiago--who is basically a magnet for ridiculous happenings, by simply existing, he insists--the two of them are bound to attract all sorts of attention, good and bad.

However, there are some things the disavowed celebrity doesn't know about Caera... She's got secrets almost as dark as the shady players after them, but since she was caught in the crossfire meant for him, she has made it her personal goal to undermine their efforts... even if she may have far more to lose than he in the end.

Short Story

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". It's 167 words of sand in your tequila sunrise. It's a handful of lines that sink into your bones and make your marrow ache. It's KO time... and I am not sorry.

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.
