“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.”

The Last Angel: The Hungry Stars, Chapter 28
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
The Last Angel: Ozymandias, Chapter 10
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
Children of Heaven: Choir of Silence, Chapter 31
“Your sidearm, Corporal.” Natalya held out her hand towards the Marine next to her. Almost instantly there was the comforting weight of a Colt 997 in her hand. Optimized to function with power armour systems, it was awkward for an unarmoured human to use. That didn’t stop Archer from jamming the barrel up into Arykka’s chin. …they would all say she was escaping and a threat to others… “Do you trust me?” she purred.
Children of Heaven: Choir of Silence, Chapter 30
Being persona non grata to her fellow officers did have some perks, Natalya had to admit. It allowed her a certain degree of freedom in her decisions, since she was no longer constrained by the thought of repercussions to her image or career. Her mother would be proud; she’d always taught her daughter to focus on the positive side of things. Oh, she was ostracized from official and unofficial gatherings, her security clearances had been revoked, people that she’d thought of as friends and comrades were suddenly too busy for a cup of coffee, let alone able to return her comms. She could handle it if it were just herself, but Donald, Li and the remaining captains in TF 111 were getting caught in the crossfire. Things had gotten worse since Newfounding; one or two incidents had bordered on insubordination.
The Last Angel: The Hungry Stars, Chapter 27
This month’s latest update is now live: Chapter 27 of The Hungry Stars. In this chapter, the infiltration of the Triquetran League’s largest cloning facility proceeds. Echo is forced to deal with hostile networks with on-the-job training and put the well-being of some squishy, easily damaged organics in fate’s hands. She doesn’t care for that.… Continue reading The Last Angel: The Hungry Stars, Chapter 27
Children of Heaven: Choir of Silence, Chapter 29
Moria MacLean whimpered, pulling her knees up to her chest. She knew she was better then this, she wanted to be better then this, but she was trapped, alone in the dark aboard an alien vessel. Her crew was dead or imprisoned. She squeezed her eyes tight, hoping, praying to whomever or whatever was listening that this was all a bad dream, that all she had to do was open her eyes and she’d wake up in a Concordat sickbay.
The Last Angel: Ozymandias, Chapter 9
My patrons just can’t seem to get enough of a heartfelt and emotional tale of mother-daughter bonding, so we’re back with more Ozymandias. That’s what it’s about, right? A parent and child who never knew the other existed coming to terms with this realization and finding their way through this new relationship amidst a whole… Continue reading The Last Angel: Ozymandias, Chapter 9
The Last Angel: The Hungry Stars, Chapter 26
A new chapter for The Hungry Stars is here (and an update to another one of my stories will be coming before the month’s end). In this chapter, we’re completing shifting from slow build-up to payoff as story will be focusing mostly on Nibiru for some time to keep things moving on that front. I… Continue reading The Last Angel: The Hungry Stars, Chapter 26
Children of Heaven: Choir of Silence, Chapter 27
A single star system swelled to prominence on the holographic view and there was a ripple in the assembled officers as they recognized it. “Unicorn Set. This is the second hardest target the Lefu have, ladies and gentlemen.” Hunt’s voice was granite, radiating nothing but pure conviction. “And we’re going to take it out.”
