Stormy Night: 1/20
Thunder cracks to the east. Local cops are streamin' in and out of the peep show here on 57th. Beat guys, not CSI. Just as likely to screw up my crime scene as not. But they've got a job to do. I'm sure they'll do their best. #20TweetTales#Noir#Fiction
Stormy Night: 2/20
I've got a job to do too, to bad I have to wait for my new partner. Already ten minutes late. Haven't heard much about Agent Lance Popescu, but if this is how he does things... Let's just say I'm not sure how well we'll get along. #20TweetTales#Noir#Fiction

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. #Scifi#Noir#Microfiction#TwitFic#20TweetTales#Flashfiction
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. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction

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 #20TweetTales#SciFi#Fiction
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. #20TweetTales#SciFi#Fiction

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. #Scifi#Fiction#Microfiction#TwitFic#flashfiction
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. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction

Lakeside Gate: 0/20
Welcome to another #20TweetTales, where I try to take a really cool piece of art as inspiration and tell a story in 20 tweets. Today's is inspired by Sarper Baran's piece Portal Forest. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction#Thread#StoryThread
Lakeside Gate: 1/20
Bow in hand, Dav and his brother Shen tracked the deer trail through the fresh snow. The forest peeled back, revealing a frozen lake. A quarter-league away, a metal circle taller than a man stood on end at the water's edge. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction

It's been a little spell since I was able to do a #20TweetTales thread, but I'm glad to be back at it. Today's story is inspired by Joe Hill's fantastic piece, Glacier. artstation.com/artwork/nQ0rQX #20TweetTales#Fantasy#Fiction

First as a child and now as an adult, Thessa heard the Prophet's words in her head. "And lo, the Ice Dagger in the heart of fire will melt, only then shall the Ratha Lands be reborn. But with the rebirth, shall also come death." #20TweetTales#Fantasy#Fiction

It's Time: 0/20
Time again for another #20TweetTales! Today's #postapocalyptic piece is partially inspired by a great piece done by Martin Lawrence Agleron over on ArtStation. #Scifi#Fiction
It's Time: 1/20
The Stranger tugged at her reigns guiding horse Shala around the chunks and crumbled remains of the once-great city. The blazing sun vanished behind the ancient skeletal buildings, and it's heat fading with fresh green overgrowth. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction

It's time for a new 20TweetTales! This one is a #Scifi story about explorers on a distant planet, inspired by Flora Silve's piece, Astro Ruins. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction
Captain Raj Arjun pressed the comm button on his suit. "Uh, Reit? I need you over here."
"What is it, sir? More rocks?"
Arjun took a step closer and noticed the faint static filling the background in the audio. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction

It's Tuesday! For me, that means another #20TweetTales fiction. This time inspired by a really cool piece from Travis Lacey. artstation.com/artwork/nQEXV6 #Scifi#Fiction
From the back of his he'esh mount, Ghalid studdied the encampment in the tiny oasis hidden among the shifting dunes below. Men and women ran about, yelling orders and trying desperately to prepare for the coming Razor Storm. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction

Night Fishing 1 of 20:
Our supplies were dangerously low, so we brought the rig down to about four meters and let our baited lines dip into the marsh below. The scoops dropped to gather the water. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction
Night Fishing 2 of 20:
Our airship, a cobbled-together mass of old airplain, school bus and junk drifted over the murky water.
The pieces of the shattered moon streaked across the cloudless sky gave us plenty of light. #20TweetTales#Scifi#Fiction
