Dreamwalkers

Chapter 9

“Well, it’s about time for me to head home.” Andie gazed down at the city below her – watching the thoughts leaking out from the apartments and the late night cars. They were crude, and rarely of any importance, since people kept the important thoughts too close to let them slip free. They looked like …[continue reading]

Chapter 47

Conmer snapped awake, his half hour nap stolen away by the infernal blaring of his stupid alarm. With a speed other species would deem “unreasonable,” he changed out of his pajamas and into his homgen styled suit. He glanced over toward his alarm clock. The fiendish device was not content to silence itself after a …[continue reading]

Chapter 8

Andie stepped out of the mindscape and back into the physical world. She called it that because referring to it as “reality” implied mindscapes weren’t real – mindscapes that were built out of a person’s hopes, dreams, fears, love, and hate – everything that mattered to them. Andie couldn’t think of anything more real than …[continue reading]

Chapter 46

Conmer strode into the TS Long Con’s laboratory and med-bay, Renz in tow. The whole place was a surprisingly sanitary mess; every single thing was maintained with the absolute minimum cost in effort and resources required to insure safety. This was standard for a dugaren. Their species prized life as the greatest and only virtue, …[continue reading]

Chapter 7

Dyllan scaled his way up toward the ground above, falling a few stories as soon as gravity returned to its normal downward state. It took him a few seconds to reorient himself. “You alright, Andie?” “I was just about to ask you the same question.” Andie flickered into vision as Dyllan’s eyes blinked open. Her …[continue reading]

Chapter 45

Conmer opened the lower port bow door to the TS Long Con, hoping to head straight for his cabin without stopping to talk to any morons. “He-heey… Hi. Hiii, Conmer.” Well there went that plan. Renz was usually pleasant company, but with his mental faculties… impaired, it was unlikely he had anything interesting or important …[continue reading]

Chapter 6

Dyllan let out a sigh and scratched the back of his neck impatiently. “Geh… I hate this part. I always feel like such a coward, just sitting around waiting for Andie to finish doing all the actual fighting.” “We’ve talked about this. Whether or not charging in like a brain dead lunatic ‘feels’ like the …[continue reading]

Chapter 44

Conmer strolled back into Treyhan’s shipyard, feigning interest in several plastic plants to stall for time as he passed through the lobby. Every second of civility he could maintain before his inevitable return to the TS Long Con was precious. “Oh, Conmer. You’re back.” Treyhan wandered into the room holding a few dozen pages of …[continue reading]

Chapter 5

Andie charged down her road of flames – ever increasing terror weighing down on her. Normally, she’d keep the looming fear at bay with jokes and a smile, but she was long past that point. Not-panic was no longer an option, now was the time to start panicking productively. First things first, though, Andie needed …[continue reading]

Chapter 43

Conmer stepped back out into the busy streets, packed tightly with hundreds of rosearn swimming in their own plans and schemes. He really didn’t want to go back to the ship yet. Maybe he could visit that restaurant Treyhan had recommended. Ponzi’s, it was called. No, that wasn’t an option. Tenra’s teeth were proof that …[continue reading]
