Joah placed her palm flat on the cool, dark metal door and waited for the faint hum of the scanner that would signal the arrival of the lift to the apartment. She picked up her travel case and stepped inside, feeling the familiar quick rise and hearing the opening whoosh of the doors, but when she stepped out she nearly tumbled into the back of a well-dressed, black haired man.
“That's good to hear. You don't plan on blowing up anything, right?” a feminine voice asked somewhere to her…Continue
“But why had he always felt so strongly the magnetic pull of home, why had he thought so much about it and remembered it with such blazing accuracy, if it did not matter, and if this little town, and the immortal hills around it, was not the only home he had on earth? He did not know. All that he knew was…Continue
As one wanders the city, made of plastic and metal and silicon, the question is, does the city have a soul?
Does intelligence, self awareness, fear, do these mean you have a soul? Or just an advanced threat response system?
In a city teeming with machine drones who barely notice as people go by, and packed with people listening to private soundtracks and engrossed in private worlds, the question is, who notices you? Who would notice you?

the door opens too the back of the freighter...Stacey looks from the back and sees the blip of light far below that is insilico, she shakes her head, the short green hair fluttering about as the air rushes from the compartment. a wide smile on her face...she loved doing this..wished she could do it more but hardly got the chance.
she lifted the helmet onto her head, squeezing her hair in, a hiss and a click as the helmet pressurises.
she drops...silence...at this…Continue
Excavators, That's the fancy word they have for us. They get to sit up in those fancy cities, Insilico, Nu Zurich, and wherever else. Us? we sit down here, digging day in and day out for whatever scraps were left by the old cities. I heard once that you used to see blue skies before it…Continue

Some call me a gun nut. I call Myself prepared for the eventuality of being shot at. Some people accuse me of being over prepared...but the truth is it happens on a daily basis, its my job to get shot at so the civvies don’t have to be shot at. I generally try shooting the people shooting at me but that’s secondary too protecting Gemini property and protecting the populace. Notice that order. Gemini property before protecting the people. Join up…Continue
Roahm dropped her coat across the bar of her apartment as she slumped down in a stool. Another long day was behind her. as she started to cook herself some dinner a small photo fell from the shelf. as she leaned down to pick it up, she remembered it sharply. It was a picture she had taken with her old cybernetic eyes of genya in her kitchen, teaching her to cook. A tear welled up in her eye as she remember those days, she had never actually learned to cook for herself before. Old man…Continue
The Board’s order had required an immediate departure and the Gemini transport crew had been crisp, friendly, and business-like as they’d lead Inara to her seat for the trip to Prime. It wasn’t until she was underway, resting comfortably in a plush, cradle seat and sipping a glass of single malt whiskey that the reports of an incident in West Sector had begun filtering in. At first there were just snatches from the IPS band about fugitive pursuit, and then the listener feeds in West sector…Continue

In the test chamber underneath the medlab, Ghost Prime ran through the maze. A drone came out of the wall to her left, she fired her weapon, as the holographic enemy was hit and faded from view, the cyborg continued on.
In the observation room, Ann smoked her e-cig while watching the data from the unit scroll across the display, Health signs were nominal, Anitya did a good job repairing the organic systems, Ann had to handle the synthetics, but that was to be expected, they…Continue
The only difference between dusk and night was that the greys were darker and there was no light for the black metal towers to soak and steal. And yet, it settled like a ghost upon the districts, seeping into the grillework, flowing down the streets, leaving a chill in its wake.…Continue
