The beam hit Marcus' chest, but it didn't get through his new costume. While I hadn't been planning to go to war, I knew that he and Jaclyn were more vulnerable to heat and lasers than they were to anything physical. I designed their costumes to disperse heat and reflect lasers. In [...]

Bearing in mind that Monday updates have been late for the last couple weeks, I thought I'd make sure people knew that tomorrow's update will appear on time. On another note, some of you are probably aware that I play tabletop role-playing games (the kind with people and dice). You might [...]

That turned out to be a fool's dream. Agent 957 barked out a command that my implant translated as, “Target him!” “Him” in this case meant me and the four remaining soldiers ran at me, the front two firing their weapons, hitting my armor. I felt the warmth. Even as I [...]

By shots, I mean burning blasts of energy and technically they didn't ring out so much as sizzle through the air. Of course, a technicality of description wouldn't make their weapons less lethal. Marcus flattened out against the wall—though not before Tikki stood in front of him with her bubble of [...]

The Project Sanctuary building on the corner of Barks and Karl had once been an extended-stay hotel, albeit not one big enough even to hold the most modest conventions. The U-shaped structure had been converted into an urban garden and the volunteers opened the wrought iron gate at the open [...]

“Hey guys, guess what?” Kay Graycloud was one of those people one saw at every convention where cosplay was an element: clearly she had an interest in costuming, but missed a crucial point where cosplay traditionally involves dressing up as a character from other media. As such, she was a [...]

“Oh. My. God. I have so many questions!” That was how Meghan Rockwell greeted Warrick when he opened the door of his and JC's apartment. The announcement was undercut by the fact that she was in full ‘orcing' regalia: chunky black knee-high elevated boots, a wine-colored pleather skirt with rivets [...]

In the most recent episode of Throwing the Gun, we talk about ending series since Drew Hayes is ending Superpowereds, Christopher (CB) Wright is ending Curveball, and Cheyanne Young has ended City of Legends. Also, an inadvertent comment about writer's block starts a Nerdfight–which probably also counts as a trope [...]

Arvid Troelsen dropped his bag on the bench. Its old hide smote wood that had seen its fair share of backsides. His leathers creaked as he settled down beside it, arms crossed, ankles crossed, legs stretched out before him. He closed his eyes, and rested his chin on his chest. [...]
