Dying Star - One ShotKara felt the hot tears slipping down her face, but she kept her arms up, concentrating on the shimmering breach before her. It was taking all of her abilities to close it and seal away the monsters that had created several such rips across four continents. She remembered so much damage, so many people killed by the things. She focused through the searing heat that burned in her gut. Kara had never pushed herself so hard before, and she knew there would be consequences for breaking her limits. That is, if she survived this battle. She had managed to close the others, somehow, but did she have enough left to finish it?Dying Star - One Shot by brietta-a-m-f
She quickly purged the thought, and the accompanying fears, and, with a scream, she focused new energy at the portal. It was closing, but not quickly enough. Her cry of defiance and strain was nearly drowned out by the savage roar of the beast still fighting to stay on Earth. Her friends were flitting specks at the edge of her vision: throwing punches, debris, bolts of en
All In A Day's WorkIn mid-2022, Sahara.com, the world's largest online retailer, had become aware that running had become a more and more popular past-time as media raised awareness of the American Obesity Epidemic and studies were published almost weekly about the health (and cosmetic) benefits of the activity. Orders of various running equipment skyrocketed, and one of the Big Brains behind the retailer's success began to wonder about a new method of shipment within larger cities. The business started a trial program is New York City, New York, San Diego, California, Seattle, Washington and Kansas City, Missouri. It was called Sahara's Runners.All In A Day's Work by brietta-a-m-f

In less than five years, it was implemented in more than eig

“At the Top of the Tower”
In the center of the sprawling metropolis that was the capital city of a land known as Alterna, a tower rose high above the city and past the clouds in the sky.

Welcome to my lair! |
Well, my virtual lair, anyway, where I post my creative exploits, experiments and many unfinished projects. Most commonly, you will see traditional sketches, portraits and landscapes, and well as prose writing. I've got art/writings based in horror, sci-fi, fantasy, historical periods, wildlife, something for almost everyone really. I am truly a jack of all trades, dabbling in everything, mastering none of them. But that's okay so long as I can have a bit of fun!
By the way, in that photo up there, I'm the one in the white hat, not the famous actor. Just so there's no confusion!
Thanks for stopping by!
