The year is 2072, after most of mankind has been wiped out by nuclear war. The world's a barren wasteland, where it's a struggle just to survive. These tales follow the exploits of Drake, a lone gunfighter, as he makes his living in the desert wastes.
Yet a further continuation in the crusade of the gunfighter, Drake. He'd met up with Sten Ivories, a mercenary like himself, and asked for assistance. Now they must do battle with soldiers of unknown origin and influence.
It has been many hundreds of years since humans last set foot on land. Now humanity is little more than a memory, for what was once human no longer exits. Through genetic manipulation and centuries of evolution humans have evolved to survive beneath the waves. But the last hive mother is dying and with her so shall the remnants of post-humankind, unless one man can find the Last City, a mysterious place of 300 year old legend.
Failsafe is an episodic story with anthropomorphic characters, set in Hong Kong thirty two years in the future after a third world war. Failsafe was originally inspired by the anime OVA, Fooly Cooly with influences from the anime Gad Guard, Neon Genesis Evangelion, the ska band Five Iron Frenzy, and some elements of my own life. (all of the episode are in fact named after FIF songs, some loosely based off the lyrics) While far from masterful, I believe Failsafe is my best work to date. I designed the story to play out kind of like a TV series or a graphic novel, with a total of fourteen episodes in the works.
This change - obvious to some, though others are oblivious. The apocalyptic bit was thrown in fairly randomly just to ensure it gets through the moderators... ; )
Picture a post apocalyptic world in which instead of the Mad Max idea, we have reverted back to the old ways of strength of sword, and magic. (This is an edited version of the story, following the excellent advice of a fellow writer.)
A story of time travel in which a target is set to be eliminated but the sniper has to make a choice between what is good for his judgement and his orders.
Drake, a gunfighter in a post nuclear world, has accepted a mission to locate a farmer named Richard Hill, who'd been abducted by one of the local crime families living in New York. In times of trouble, we turn to our friends. Drake's no exception.
Weapons of Mass Destruction have reduced the world as we know it to a barren wasteland. America's largest cities stand empty, except for the long-rotted corpses of the citizens that died there, infected by genetically altered plague strains. Other cities were ground zero for nuclear warheads. Domesticated animal populations were also wiped out; others became wild or feral. Always, there are survivors. Nearly a generation and a half after the Apocalypse, life in the US has degerated to a new weird and wild western world. Influenced by the many post-apocalyptic, speculative fiction, and alternative history stories I've picked up and read over the years. From Audolus Huxley and Stephen Vincent Benet to William Gibson and Stephen King. Also some Bret Harte, Louis L'Amor, and the Deadlands collectible card game. And of course the ever-popular Fallout series. This intro probably doesn't make sense to anyone other than myself. I am basing my NaNoWriMo novel on this story.
In a dying world, who can you trust with your life? The world has come to an end, few survivors inhabiting the earth as the Dha -- the monsters that infest the land -- continuously pick off the already small population. Kawelu is one of the lucky ones; she's finally found a tribe to accept and protect her. But what happens when someone enters the tribe that threatens the well-being of its people, but she's put in charge of his life?
Worlds is the longest piece of fiction I've ever typed, and finally here it is edited. I took advice, reduced the amount of perspectives, fixed to the best of my abilities the shifting tenses and altered an awful lot. The plot remains the same as it was though. Any input would be greatly appreciated, especially about the shifting viewpoints and peoples opinions on if this is an improvement over the last version or not (don't worry if you haven't read the original please still look this over and comment) The world is one ruled by women with psychic powers, where it is the turn of males to be persecuted. A world where the prophecies foretell of a chosen one who will throw off the shackles of opression, a man with the powers of a woman who will bring about great changes. Here begins the tale... (which incidentally is continued in Other Worlds)
Set in a world where there is an apocalypse ever 100 years. The main character is appointed by the gods to the position of Keeper of Knowledge, meaning that he is the only one that knows the full history of the world. It is his duty to guide the world in the right direction for the next 100 years, until the gods decide that it is once again time to cause an apocalypse. However, the main character doesn't want to deal with such a thing again, and tries to find a way to stop the gods from destroying his home.
Updated 12-08-05 Well, I have been writing. Not nearly as much as I'd like, but I have been putting out a minimal effort. More of my post-apocalyptic adventure. This piece is a bit long, and fairly unorganized. As always there are some formatting issues, and hopefully they'll get fixed soon.
The present is about to be swollowed by the darkness of our past, and the emptieness of our future.
This is Part 3 of Worlds. Read, comment, enjoy. (Please). Hopefully I'll get it edited by the end of this year. Part four is in the process of being written. Comment and it may happen faster.
This is the companion story to Different Worlds, it stands on it's own quite happily, though is probably best read after you've read DW (which contains more in depth background information than this). For those who don't know, Other Worlds is a sci-fi story, based in a world where women rule, men are their pawns and the internet is sentient. Thanks very much to A for her constructive comments, and for proof-reading this. There are a few embarassing spelling mistakes (especially near the end) which I'll do my best to remove in my next upload (which should be next week) Hope you all enjoy.
This is the beginning of the story between Horse and Johnathan, how Five and Fifth met, how the reject of the herd of the Apocalypse found his rider, and how the end of the world was started way too soon. Goodies and insanity to come!! I've rewritten this a couple times and I can't say I am very satisfied with it. It will be a continuous work I think.
A lone gunman stands in the ruins of a once great city when his solitude is disturbed. Features 'The Sniper' from Street Lights.
