Imperfect

This Featured Story is written by the talented [Lacrymosa].


Deservingly Starving,
I choke down my muffin,
fake blueberries and all.
I'm still hungry but I find it easy to shun the hunger
when all I see in the mirror is the ugly, fat, gross
me.

PriceofSentience

The featured story for 15th September 2014 is brought to you by [Kestrelfeather].

"This planet…we are not alone on it…in the shadows of night, we see forms, apparitions. When I try to look closely, they fade away. This planet…It is my belief that it is not meant for us. I think we should leave. There is a darkness rising on Arjuna.

It takes an unusually high mental capacity to ignore the rambling thoughts of the Collective and focus only on the voice you want to hear. For me, a biologist currently trying to find salvation for the human race, that one voice I search for is often the root of all life: the Earth spirit. There are billions upon billions of thoughts in the Collective. Of reproduction, of love, of war…every life on Earth sends energy into it. Until recent decades, human kind, Homo sapiens, didn’t have the ability to tap into it. Being bipedal and with advanced abilities, the last step in human evolution was of the mind. It took thousands of years, but eventually select humans developed the ability that for so long, man had been lacking.
I am part of the Collective, one of the Listeners, the first human ever to hear the voice of the Earth itself. Although my grades in ‘Silent’ school weren’t spectacular, at a young age my Listening abilities surpassed any other humans’ in the world. At age twelve, I was pulled from school, isolated from the other children. I was the only one in my class with Listening ability, answering middle-school level biology exam questions with complex diagrams and exact genetic codes. "

FTL: Juggernaut

The featured story for 15th Augut 2014 is brought to you by [Tekkon KinKreet].

"As we jumped into the home system, my stomach knotted. I could see the main station, surrounded by rebel ships, like a noose, tightening around everything we stood for.

We were late. My crew mates and I let out a collective gasp at the sight. Tiny, the enormous Rockman, broke his usual silence, catching everyone off guard with his gravelly voice. "The Flag ship, we must find it."

The rockmen were huge creatures. Their outer shell, akin to a humans skin, but much thicker was made almost entirely of rock. Believing honor above all else with personal strength a close second, they made great soldiers, and were often used as boarding parties, and were the first in the fight when their ship was boarded."


We hope you enjoy reading this fun, action packed story! <img:stuff/aj/61513/1267019305.png>

Sugarplum Meets Rainobicorn

The featured story for 30th June 2014 is brought to you by [kamisch] and [SilverFire] (nominator).

"While trapped in the smelly caves of Silver Acid, one of the ways Sugarplum prevented her conscience from being surrendered to the evil whims of the step-monster, Triciuza, was through distraction. She would distract herself so that she eventually hardly even knew she hated the dreary darkness of her smothered world, nor would she even notice if Triciuza was lurking around. Sugarplum found that the best way to do this was to explore every nook and cranny of the Silver Acid Caves. It didn't take long for Sugarplum to discover all she could exploit from the caves, but she still needed more."


We hope you enjoy reading about the adventure of Sugarplum! <img:44166_1164099989.gif>
