Okay so. #thread for this concept, working title Broadway Demons.

It starts with a bit of real history and goes from there.
During the Great War, Fr. Francis Duffy of the 69th Infantry Regiment met a soldier in his unit, an Armenian-American, who was "Irish by abbreviation" ("Father Duffy's Story," page 66). This is the soldier's one mention in the entire memoir.
This will be a #microfiction thread, just fyi!

They came at me with weapons. All I could do was run. They wanted something from me, and it looks like they don't care what condition my body was in. I had no idea why they were chasing me. My heart started to pound. It began to rain.

I must have rushed past ten people; I certainly hope they called the cops. Spotting an entrance to an alley, I dove right in, hoping they would not see me. No such luck; they did see me. Shit. I kept running. I was out of breath. Shit!

"Should have kept up with my training." I complain to myself. To think, I spent 4 years getting my black belt when I was eighteen. Kept it up in the Air Force somewhat. Damn it.

The woman stared at the lights emblazoned on the building. It was just a name, but somehow it wasn't fair a building could have a name and she didn't. But then, she thought a lot of things weren't fair.

Smoke wafted from the cigarette, creating a pale wisp of white in the dark night. She exhaled, dispersing the wisp in a balloon of gray. Again, she tried to think back, to remember the day before. And again, there was nothing.

Carlo had told her that there was no record of her, that her DNA was not in the planetary registry, nor fingerprints or photos or anything else. For all intents and purposes, she really didn't exist. She was a non-person, a ghost.

I have a particular love for dark and gritty art with rough strokes. Ivan Khotenov's Sk_15 fits that perfectly. artstation.com/artwork/L2Zwbw

Over Talis' shoulder, the storm spanned the horizon. Thick, dark clouds of sand reached up to blot the searing sun from the sky. This wall of death stretched up more than a mile. Her death, if she didn't get out of the Razorsand Sea.

Jefa's dying screams echoed in her head, even as she gunned the runnerbike and took off. On Toxous' order, she'd been fed to an acidworm for some perceived slight on his part. Seeing her lover's flesh disolve made Talis want to vomit.

It's time for another #20TweetTales. Started on this story a while ago, and finally finished it. This is inspired by Alex Ichim's military piece, Runner.

The creak echoed through the clearing as Private Tull shoved open the engine access hatch. A blast of steam washed over him and he cursed. The hydrocapacitor was shot. That meant that runner wasn't going anywhere until he fixed it.

"Whassa matter, Private NULL? That big-ass head ain't got enough brains t'fix a little runner?" Corporal Daught strolled by chuckling, an armload of comm-cable in hand. Tull bit his tongue to keep from spitting back a snarky comment.

@LAMcGinnis1520 @JMorgynWhite β€œWhat are you doing?” She struggled to keep an edge in her voice. She’d missed him, missed them…even if his position forbade associating with witches.

Kerry lifted a hand to brush her cheek. He waited, never taking his eyes from hers.

@LAMcGinnis1520 @JMorgynWhite She couldn’t move away; truth be told, she wanted their spark again. So she dipped her head, and his touch was a sweeter comfort than she remembered.

β€œI’m getting what I came for,” he answered in a voice like honey.

@LAMcGinnis1520 @JMorgynWhite Cupping her neck, he pulled her forward. She went like the fireflies in the dark, breathing into the kiss, relishing his lips on hers.

Then something burning cold wrapped her wrist. Magic, shackling her to the spot.

Serane walked in shadow, counting the sidewalk cracks. At twenty-six she stopped. An odd way to find the thread tied to the door, but old magic was quirky. She leaned on the brick wall of the building feeling #vestiges of the terratracker she was here to dispel. #vss365 #denimag

The Museum of Unnatural Histories, found in the backrooms and basements of its more famous and mundane sister institution, collects impossible remnants of a natural world that both is and is not our own. The Curator owes me a favour. #microfiction [1/?]
As the Curator ushers me past the statue of renowned cryptonaturalist and shapeshifter Charles Darwin, she impresses upon me the veracity of the objects I'm about to see. History is convoluted, and branches in unexpected ways. These exhibits are from some of those branches. [2/?]
Exhibit 27c: Skywhale skeleton. The only exhibit from the M of UH on display to the general public, this ancient skywhale used to float, blimp-like, around the peaks of the Hidden Mountains, catching flocks of garuda in a specialised baleen. [3/?]

Lil #microfiction challenge... each RT I'll write about an enchanted weapon or item. owo

@zanderjeanCC This two-handed sword has a blade of thin crystal, the metal forged around it it just to hold the blade itself. Once its true name is spoken, it glows with an unearthly light that can dazzle opponents. It's a zwei-zander, if you will.
@empyreanSpartan For ages, the Hammer of Hyramdath (pronounced with a trill and a short second A) was considered an indestructible ornament--it was scaled for a titan's hands. When the moon is full, it points its haft like a compass, waiting for its master.

In an ordinary town, on an ordinary street, there is an ordinary house. A little older than any other house, but ordinary, nonetheless. If you passed this house you wouldn’t think twice about it. In fact, you wouldn’t think about it all.

Unless.

Unless she wanted you to think about it.
If she wanted you to see the house, you would. You would want to go to this house and you would want to walk up to the door.
