The inaccurate design was cute, according to Nerice.

Valentines day By: Delaney Gillespie 4 Castra felt inspired after looking through Nerice’s research on the human custom of Valentine’s Day.

A veces me dan ganas de despertarlo

El secreto de Mario (capítulo I) Por: Patricia Bermejo Cáceres, España Ring, ring, ring … Suena el maldito despertador como cada mañana. Otro día más de insomnio. Me doy cuenta que estoy empapado en sudor, algo habitual en mí desde hace unos meses. “Lo odio”. Me revuelvo en la cama intentando buscar entre sus sábanas el consuelo que necesito para afrontar otra dura jornada laboral. Pero nada. ¡No quiero ir! Solo de pensarlo me tiemblan las piernas. Mientras tanto, Hugo duerme plácidamente a mi lado ajeno a la mierda de situación que me ha tocado vivir. Sus ronquidos me retumban en … Continue reading A veces me dan ganas de despertarlo

You know Solaria is incapable of lying

Valentines day By: Delaney Gillespie 3               Lorrik wasn’t surprised to hear the sounds of pursuit. It was likely Nerice. Solaria moved far more quietly, and Castra knew him well enough to leave him alone when he was irritated. Nerice was pushier. Usually, he loved her for it, but right now, he wasn’t in the mood.               “What was that all about?” Sure enough, it was Nerice’s voice that entered the room half a moment before she did.               “What was what?”         … Continue reading You know Solaria is incapable of lying

“Move over earth jerk!” The towering woman slides in

A Colorful New Crew By: Breanna Leslie. A day of hot travel through the desert leaves Aidan and James parched and exhausted, but as the caravan pulls into the village of Aquila, nestled quietly in the mountain range, they are greeted with a bustling cantina. They can smell the fragrant fruit from outside and waste no time in seeking refreshment. After ordering two glowing green beverages and a platter of fruit that looks more like earth’s most exotic sea anemones than anything they’d previously eaten, they settle into a dimly lit booth. James draws circles on Aidan’s hand and they rest, … Continue reading “Move over earth jerk!” The towering woman slides in

The communal level of the Colossus was the largest by far

Valentines day By: Delaney Gillespie 2 Nerice dragged Solaria across the communal level of the Colossus. They passed more alien species than they could count, with the odd human floating about here and there. Most of the aliens needed special masks to breathe, due to the synthetic environment programed for this level of the space station. The communal level of the Colossus was the largest by far. Its environment was regulated to the standards the majority of alien life could survive within. However, it was only a slight majority. For those who could not freely roam the communal level without a … Continue reading The communal level of the Colossus was the largest by far

Mariah dropped her head. “It’s too late for that. They’ve got us."

Tempest Tossed by Shaun Kilgore 2 The pirate vessel was surging at full sail, aiming to intercept the Fairweather before it could alter course or flee. Mariah cursed. “They must have sighted us farther out and waited to ambush.” “Do we flee?” Mariah dropped her head. “It’s too late for that. They’ve got us. There’s no way we can outrun them at this point. Besides if we tried, they would blast us out of the water with those cannons.” As the ship came closer, she could make out the figures moving about on deck. It was twice the size of the … Continue reading Mariah dropped her head. “It’s too late for that. They’ve got us."

Anyway, he finally wakes up from all the cold and asks, “What happened honey.”

The Night Dancer By: Saloni Bhatnagar Almere Stad, Netherlands Fuck these hot flashes! I was peacefully sleeping in my bed when suddenly I realized there was sweat under my bosom. I never sweat – I used to tell this to my husband who is snoring peacefully beside me, just because he doesn’t have ovaries, he doesn’t have to bleed every month and the literally lying piece of shit would never know what it feels like to have that egg producing power taken away. I twist and turn like a dancer showing off her moves, and think why can’t I do this … Continue reading Anyway, he finally wakes up from all the cold and asks, “What happened honey.”

El único refugio viable para el ser humano se encuentra en la tercera región

Futuros Inciertos Por: Andrius La Rotta Esquivel Bogota, Colombia  No podemos perder más tiempo. Tenemos que irnos de aquí lo antes posible. Jake, ¡Vamos! Era el año 2200, una época extraña, en donde la tierra había pasado por muchas transformaciones, el planeta ya no contaba con las típicas estaciones, de verano, invierno, otoño y primavera, y ahora se dividía en tan solo tres regiones. Una con noches eternas, los paisajes de color blanco e intenso eran predominantes y con un frío tan aterrador que solo unos pocos valientes lo resistían. Por otro lado, estaba la zona árida y desértica, dotada de … Continue reading El único refugio viable para el ser humano se encuentra en la tercera región

Real friendships were based on common interests, not shared roofs

2: Abode By: Aya Bassiouny The old building comprising the dormitory was in the shape of a medieval church, Miranda thought. Its garlanded windows, large and arched, were segmented into panes of stained glass. Inside, the walls were the color of sunset, a pastel citrus mesh that scented a beginning she could not quite figure. There was a carpeted spiral stairway connecting the building’s seven floors, conforming to her expectation, but also a crank elevator of which some buttons still faintly flickered, while most were out of light. A scene from a Greek myth colored the vault’s curvature–Zeus, Hermes, and maybe … Continue reading Real friendships were based on common interests, not shared roofs

That’s the primary reason one embraces it.

What is it like to not love? Sadly it is so common it has a name. “Anhedonia,” it’s the inability to feel pleasure; when we become numb to it all. You don’t feel bad either. That’s the primary reason one embraces it. To not feel pain, but you can’t choose it that way. It’s either happy and sad, or nothing at all. Author/Editor: Eugenio Zorrilla.
