Abandoned book

The beast raised the sword, the blade glimmered in the firelight, and went to strike Anton who was completely immobilised by the magic. There was no plan, no escape. Was this the final chapter for him? Would he be nothing more than another trophy for this creature? In the corner of his eye Anton saw…

Earth Death and Rebirth

The original Earth died, or at least the surface of it. Nothing remains but what survives of photography and descriptions. Those who remember it exactly as it was have long passed, their lifespans unnaturally long but not eternal for no technology no matter its sophistication can promise immortality. As the original natural Earth died, humans…

A Beautiful End

From the darkness there was an explosion of light and colour, as if a vast firework had exploded in space. Pink and purple streams of light dusted the sky, hinted with blue and green. It was as if aurora borealis had covered the planet. This was the universe giving its last show, its final farewell.…

Me, again. Like, can't some…

Miscellaneous ideas

Subverting Tropes Evil one: Commander, you let them get away again. Such a disappointment. I really thought you believed in our cause. One protagonist to other, hidden watching: This is gonna be good. They'll be roasted (gestures blazing with hands) Evil one: I have no choice but to make an example of those who fail…

Alien Beasts

The creature walked slowly, it was quadrupedal but seemed to move more like a wisp, ink on water, and it seemed to carry an aura of ink as it travelled in the fog. There was no weight to it, it was hard to tell if it ever made contact with the ground for in the…

AGTE: Trees

Humans' relationship with the natural world is, odd. Trees and oceans cycle the carbon dioxide and create oxygen which humans breathe in and expel carbon dioxide. The trees also provide shade, a degree of shelter, and food that humans can consume, prevent flooding, and have no demands in return besides carbon dioxide and light from…
