Chapter 17

Andie took a deep breath. It had been a little over a minute since her mirror image had attacked her out of the blue, and so far the fight was going well. Too well. Suspiciously well. She found her gaze being drawn to a splotch of shadowy goo on her sword – the same kind …[continue reading]

“…Alright.” Ardjia took a deep breath and tightened her grip on her mask. “So, like I just said, you’re partly right. As much as we rosearn insist we don’t feel that horrible thing you call ‘trust,’ it’s not always true. But!” She held out her hand for emphasis. “But! That’s not because ‘rosearn don’t experience …[continue reading]

“Well, you certainly know how to make a good first impression.” Dyllan stared cautiously at the mysteriously monochrome Andie-like girl. The Nightmare was gone, but she hadn’t put away her weapon. “Don’t suppose you feel like explaining who you are, why you’re here, and what exactly -” “Wait.” Normal Andie cut off Dyllan. “Do you …[continue reading]

“…It has just occurred to me that I may have accidentally come off more threatening than I’d intended, so why don’t I clear up a few things right now?” A slightly chagrined smile spread out across Ardjia’s face, but Renz wasn’t buying it. Rosearn never “accidentally” did anything with their words; they chose them far …[continue reading]

Chapter 15

Andie sprinted across yet another floating chunk of building, Dyllan quickly dashing after her. He’d always been one of the few people who could keep up with her, whether it was in the physical world or a mindscape. If only he had an actual weapon, they could probably tag team the zombie tin-man chasing them. …[continue reading]

“So…” Renz glanced awkwardly around the room. “…are we going to talk about… whatever it was you wanted to talk about? ‘Cause you’ve been pretty quiet for a while, and I don’t like wasting time.” “Most homgen don’t.” Ardjia did a few quick stretches. Now that her facial expression was resting in a quietly confident …[continue reading]

Okay, maybe she couldn’t handle this. Andie landed with a thud, taking off again as soon as she hit the ground. Thick, soupy air – if it even was air – fought her every step of the way, smothering her as she struggled to make it to the next floating cluster of apartment sized buildings. …[continue reading]

Chapter 52

Renz followed Ardjia into a slightly suspect room, though he had a feeling he wouldn’t have noticed anything odd about it if he hadn’t spent so much time with Conmer. After all, on the surface it was nothing but a viewing area. It was clean, filled with plants, and its windows overlooked a beautiful garden. …[continue reading]

Chapter 13

“Okay. Wow. I’ll admit it.” Cedric took a drink from his Franken-soda as he stared incredulously at the pair of Andies before him. One ordinary Andie sitting in her seat, and one thought-doodle Andie floating over the normal one’s head. “This was totally worth the half hour walk to Grill Tyrant. What even is this, …[continue reading]

Chapter 51

“It’s… a tool.” Conmer struggled to restore the emotion in his face. “Similar to a wheelchair in purpose…” He started to fidget nervously. It was clear that the topic made him extremely uncomfortable, uncomfortable enough to let his emotions slip out through his body language. “See, some rosearn are born with… what you would consider …[continue reading]
