  1. Portal v.s. Urban Fantasy--It's WAR!

    There really is no conflict between these two sub-genres. There is a difference, even if we're splitting hairs. Charles De Lint first described urban fantasy with his story Dreams Underfoot in the early 90s, making it a relatively new genre, in retrospect to the times. In short, urban fantasy brings the fantastical into the mundane world or into the contemporary setting. It's another dimension, another time and place, a different universe with it's own rules. The magical invades our world, ...

    New Friends


    Leon


    The lava filled up faster than I expected, but it was also working in my favor. Once again, the plane floated on the lava like a ship and rose up the tunnel while grinding against the ceiling. Up, up and away it went, until we came to the opening. The ceiling began to crack as the plane was pushed harder and harder up against the ceiling from the rising lava. The ceiling refused ...

    Cyborg Benefits


    Zidus


    I take back everything I said about not hating being alive. Now, more than ever, I wished to die, after all, whats the point in living, what's the point of anything anymore. So what if I got to eat new foods, so I got to explore, it all meant nothing now. I couldn't go an hour outside the purple room without almost dying. Than there's the fact that everyone I knew was dead, ...

    The Mad Storm


    My body was being shredded by the harsh wind, I couldn't see a single thing in front of me and I wasn't alone.


    In the storm, I could hear things screeching past me and than something very light landed on my shoulder like a fly. I went to hit it off, but it felt like it was latched onto me, so I tried to pull it off. Quickly, I noticed this creature was not just latched onto me, ...

    Present Time


    Leon stop his story, leaving me in suspense, “Things would never be the same, what does that even mean and what happened after you opened your eyes. I have questions and they need answers”.


    As he went back into the plane, he said, “There's not much more to say, when the light went away, the pedestal was gone, the lights were on, and ...

    Leon's Past


    Leon
    Year 2150 AD


    The names Leon, twenty nine years old and I've made a living posting videos of my adventures throughout the world on the internet. It took a long time to get to a point where I could pay for everything with the money I make from this job. I don't even want to think about all the side jobs I had to do, I will never be a fry cook again. But, the longer I stuck with ...

    Pain


    Pain returned me to consciousness, just so I could cough up a mountain of blood. I quickly had regrets about moving, because it felt like I was in the middle of the city with its super heated air shredding every fiber of my body.



    Quickly, I returned to laying on my back, but by doing so, I once again felt my body cry. And it just wouldn't stop crying, but all I could do was lay there ...

    Fire


    Fire, yeah, I feel like that accurately describes what I'm feeling throughout my whole body. This isn't the first time I've felt like this, at least that time I was actually covered in fire. Let's take a step back, because I feel like I am getting a little ahead of myself, so let's go back five years before I ever felt such a feeling.

  9. Dream World

    This is my first time, I've rewritten this story many times and this time I decided to share it with everyone. After I write a chapter, I will publish it here. Not sure if I'm any good, just hope you enjoy it. I will try to submit a chapter every two weeks and if it's as big as the first time I wrote it, I'll be posting for quite a few years.
