Project Super Nex – Chapter Sixteen – Chaos and Death

It’s the 25th of Merto, ten past eight in the morning. The edges of a cumulus cloud burn white as it slips over one of the suns, while the second sun radiates razor blades that slice gashes through other approaching clouds. The grass and the trees and the lake of Gollinger Park flash and gleam … Continue reading Project Super Nex – Chapter Sixteen – Chaos and Death

What’s new, readers? Recently, it was announced that Christopher Nolan’s Tenetand Disney’s live-action Mulan reboot have had their theatrical releases pushed back from July 17 and 24 to August 12 and 21, respectively.

Project Super Nex – Chapter Thirteen – Fading Into The Void

Cursed Cosmotic, I’m back in that tiresome meadow. It’s mostly the same—picking berries, traipsing down the grawtree-lined passage toward the meadow, sensing something rustling within the trees on my left.
