Squabbling with Kinisis

“Well this is great…” Kinisis rolled her eyes as she watched the rivers slowly drain away. “Completely block me out, why don’t you?” The Lady of the Cycle turned to face one of her servants, who had just entered the room. “Kinisis…” “Is it good news?” she immediately snapped. “Otherwise I don’t want to know.” … Read more

Highs and Lows

A small fire crackled, heating up a pot of Weedling, a popular marijuana-like drug among the locals. It was evening, Keith had closed up early and no one else had even attempted to pop by. It was just him, Arkay and the relaxing smoke coming from the pot of drugs. Opposite Keith, Arkay was sitting … Read more

Differences in Actions

“WHERE IS HE?” Stasis bellowed as he stormed through the entrance of the cloud castle, wisps of blackness flowing off him. Kairos though didn’t respond. He was concentrating on a large, cloudy, glowing orb that was hovering between his hands. “TELL ME WHAT YOU DID WITH HIM!” Still no response. Stasis charged up and stamped … Read more

Discussing Parts of Immortality

“So, everyvok’s immortal again, huh?” Veeksiar sighed as he stared out of the domed window that made for the roof of the Great Library. “Twice in what, five years? Clearly my lunatic theory that the Dessaron reappearing broke the flow of the universe is true.” Elkay didn’t say anything as he approached. Instead he simply … Read more

Harmony Island Bar

“You’d think, being suddenly immortal, everyone would calm down a bit…” Arkay woke up with a shock. Was someone talking to him? Why was the floor made out of wood? Why did everything smell like alcohol? Where was he? Something fluttered by. A broom. Kicking up dust. “Huh, you awake now?” They WERE talking to … Read more

A Glass Cage, A Metal Spear

“This… isn’t the spaceport…” Arkay muttered as consciousness returned to him. “This is clearly some sort of large, glass cage…” The Veth Prime rubbed his eyes, then had a look around. Everything looked rather cloudy and foggy, but also rather… nice, almost. “Hey, kiddo!” Something suddenly burst out of the clouds. A huge dragon with … Read more

Confused as Fuck

Arkay was supposed to be in Kinigi right now. Normally, whenever Arkay summoned his shadowy cloak, he’d disappear in a puff of smoke and reappear wherever it was he wanted to go. For some reason, that clearly wasn’t happening right now. At first, Arkay wondered if maybe Kinisis wasn’t letting him back because he hadn’t … Read more

The Half-Baked Plan

Kairos never liked Stasis’s home. Too much black. Too many tacky golden ornaments. Alright, Kairos spent half his free time in a castle made of clouds, but that was at least cute and comfortable. Nothing around here was comfortable. But he needed to speak to Stasis. “Helloooooo? Staaaaaasis? Are you heeeeeere?” Something rumbled. Then something … Read more

Still Not Having Tea with Death

“Been a while, Tenuk,” Arkay muttered as he made himself some sort of hot drink. Tenuk assumed it was tea, but it smelled of cocoa. Maybe it was a hot chocolate. “Death’s busy, she’ll be down here a bit later.” Tenuk shrugged and looked around. The main kitchen area of Death’s living quarters had changed. … Read more

Too Many Transmissions

“Did you have a good meeting with the Vrekan king?” Rethias asked as the High General waltzed in and threw himself into one of the oversized sofas. “Yes, I did actually,” Elkay smiled. “Perhaps a little too much. It is rude to reject alcohol if a Vrekan offers it to you, yes?” Rethais tutted. “Are … Read more

A Brief Break for Busy Leaders

“Are you sure this room is secure?” the High General asked as he and the King of the Vrekans both sat down. “I do not have many fears, but I am not particularly fond of large, glass windows.” “It is all secure,” the King of the Vrekans tried to reassure the High General. “Quintuple checked. … Read more

The Frozen Child

“Are you the Dark One?” The little creature pulled a blanket around itself. Underneath the sound of beeping security sensors and the crackle of monitors all switching off, their teeth were chattering. She was cold and scared. A small, furry kid, her first antlers not grown in yet. Fur was missing from around her arm … Read more
