Greetings and welcome to my web page. Who am I and what is this all about? There's a handy-dandy 'about' link right up top, but the short version is: I am Proximal Flame, a writer who specializes in science fiction and fantasy. I've been hosting the lion's share of my work on SpaceBattles.com and my… Continue reading The Journey Begins
With my patrons voting for it, we’ve got the next update to Ozymandias. Harper and Adrianna are preparing to confront some of the Great Prison’s former inmates specimens. Unfortunately, the Mirror didn’t spend nearly ten millennia repairing dead, frozen bodies just to pass up a chance to get out of this damaged section of the… Continue reading The Last Angel: Ozymandias, Chapter 11
This week's chosen prompt comes from Pyro Hawk with 'once and forever' and it seemed only natural to get some vampire fiction with that. We return to the newly-turned vampire Leila as she is brought to a coven of her new people to decide what to do with her, alongside the renegade vampire that created… Continue reading New Short Story, ‘Que Sera’ and Weekly Prompt Thread
My patrons voted again for more of The Hungry Stars, so that’s what they get. This is Chapter 29, close to the halfway mark in the story. Things on Nibiru continue to go off the rails with Echo and her crew breaking into a cloning facility and freeing a captive Lydia Jameson. That doesn’t go… Continue reading The Last Angel: The Hungry Stars, Chapter 29
This week's prompt is 'awful romance' from N3R0 and gives us an addition to the Star-crossed setting. There's also a prompt thread up for patrons; enjoy!
This week's prompt is from Johnny with 'remembering is an elusive shadow' and a scenario where two people have different memories of the same event. Only one of them is right, though. There's also a new prompt thread up for my patrons for new week's drabble!
The final chapter to this arc of vampire (and bandit) hunting. Khy-kala faces the vampire in its lair and Jilene has fallen to the blood curse. What will happen next? Read on! In the excerpt below, Melody tries to convince her host to use some of her power to defeat the vampire, but as with… Continue reading Scars, Chapter 26
“What did you think? That the war would slide to a halt simply because you wanted it to, that what happened between us would somehow change my people’s drive?” “No, I… I don’t know what I thought. I shouldn’t be surprised, though. You’re killers without peer. Innocence means nothing to you, does it?” “What is innocence except a lack of opportunity?” “Don’t play the sanctimonious philosopher with me. I know you don’t actually think like that.” “…true. But many of my brothers and sisters do.”
With 'fleeing father's footsteps' from Xpholia, we have a new update to Pets and our orphaned human twins, Calvin and Caitlin and their experiences being raised by pirates. Enjoy! There's also a new prompt thread up for patrons for next week's drabble.
Here we are with the next installment of The Hungry Stars. Echo, Grace and Allyria have discovered that reports of Lydia’s death are greatly exaggerated. The young Marine is currently being held below one of the largest cloning facilities on Nibiru. I’m sure there’s nothing to be concerned about on that front, nor the fact… Continue reading The Last Angel: The Hungry Stars, Chapter 28
My patrons have voted for it and so it has come to pass: a new chapter of Ozymandias. Being proactive is always a good idea, isn’t it? In this case, it means that you don’t wait for the ravenous alien beasts constructs attackers to come find you. You’re already heading out to take a brief… Continue reading The Last Angel: Ozymandias, Chapter 10
