Agender (they/them), chronically ill, chaotic neutral, slytherin.

I've been writing as long as I can remember, and I never intend to stop. I write speculative fiction, and I'm most at home among the underrepresented and the bizarre.
Cheers ;)

A List of You

FREE WRITING

How do you quantify
A person?
 
I could list
The language of motion.
The way you smile
And laugh,
The way you rest your chin on your hand
When you are listening,
The way your eyes light from within
When you feel.
 
I could list
The facets of your personality.
The things you love.
The way you talk faster
With excitement,
The way you pause
To enjoy mine.
The way you always stop to be caring.
To be...

Ways to Ride

FREE WRITING

There are three ways to ride the Ewark line.

The first is to present a pass, a small token engraved with your name and the name of the master of this place, detailing what you owe and are owed. A pass is hard to come by, harder still to keep, and the price too high for many to consider.

The second way to ride the Ewark Line, should a pass be out of your reach, is bribery. Bring cash, subtly...

The System

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2019

The sky was November blue, cold and sharp and brittle. The kind of blue a person could reach up and tap a fingernail against, though then they would have to cover their head with their arms as the blue shattered and fell in shards around them, littering the earth with perfect fragments of broken sky.
        Claire stumbled a little as she stepped down from the bus, but she got her balance again and began to make her way down the...

I Want

PROMPT: One-Liner

I want to live without the shadow of a doomsday countdown hanging over me—twelve years or five, however many they say we’ve got left before our world burns, and us with it.

One Boot After the Other

PROMPT: Fantasy Writing Competition 2019

Blood and sweat trickle down the back of Seven’s neck, mingling together to soak into their tattered camo fatigues. The backpack’s straps dig into their shoulders, and they walk with their body angled forward against the weight; head down, shoulders hunched. One boot in front of the other, stirring the dry red dust.
    They emerged from the sewer system about six miles back, at a guess. It might have been safer to stay in the twisting confines of the earth’s...

Those Who Watch

PROMPT: Micro Memoir

The cat on the subway platform catches my eye. I watch it, even though I have some place to be. It sits in the middle of the crowd, undisturbed by the tide of feet flowing around it. The end of the cat’s tail is wrapped around its body, coming to rest between its front paws. The cat watches the subway trains come and go with the whoosh and snap of doors, watches people smile or grimace or shiver when the...
