Born to Sorrow

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

ME Burnham

A depiction of the genesis of two minor characters from my third and final instalment of my Vampires work. Bahale and Eva, twins ripped from nothingness to bear the pain and the suffering born of the first act of war, the first act of injustice--the first murder. The first vampires, driven to the need for blood, not from some curse, but by the immense emptiness and agony they're forced to sequester for the sake of humanity. Now, thousands of years later, Bahale and Eva serve as head of the War and Injustice family, respectively. Bahale let his bitterness and anger eat him alive years ago, while Eva's still feels pity and compassion for the wrongly injured.

What if I'm a monster?

In the years after the humans finally destroyed the earth, they found themselves living in planetary colonies and Space Cities with enough mass to orbit the sun. It took several hundred years, but dedicated humans started to turn the tide on the Earth Restoration Project. The ERP contracts out 'defenders' to guard against illegal poachers who come to snag a skin from the many species of animals revived from extinction thanks to the World Genetic Bank established when the ancient community of scientist realized there would be no saving the earth. There's a lot of work left to do, but people have finally been able to return to living on Earth--even if it is only the backward who have no use for the modern pace and technology of space. Iena and some friends are vacationing on Earth for their time off from the Levels. On earth, Iena meets a rather interesting earthling and his friends. What secrets does this defender of earth (ooooh, doesn’t that sound corny?) hide? Can she break through his pain to help him? A stand-alone of a much larger piece.

Keeper of the Lost

Welcome to the Land of the Lost--the place where every lost thing winds up. We join a young woman on her desperate quest to find something very dear to her... I had this one up a while ago, however, a formatting monster ate half of it. So I took it down to fix the embarrassing formatting mistakes.


Follow a writer and her science-geek friend through one zany conversation. (Oh, and don't take the science TOO seriously because I fudge a bit ^_~)

To Save a Friend

What would you do to save your closest friend? What if there was only one way to save said friend? Could you do it? What would you do after you saved him or her? Note: This piece is not like my typical work *translation* it's angsty without a happy ending
