Table of Contents - Original Fiction

I ran out of space to keep original and fanfiction in the same table of contents. They are now separate.

Please note that the majority of my original stories are friends-locked. If you want to read them, please comment and ask to be friended.


  • A Plague of Demons
    gen, PG13, frightening scenes
    London is gripped by a terrible plague called the Black Death.  All the doctors have fled the city and the people that remain are falling like flies before this unstoppable disease.  The deaths of the victims are so swift and painful that it leads some to believe that the bizarre illness may have a darker, more sinister origin.  The air of death draws unspeakable beasts out of the shadows; dark demons that attack humans and feed off their suffering before dragging their souls with them back into darkness.  This breach of the vale between the underworld and the land of the living forces the church to relax its stance on the use of magic in order to put up a proper fight.  However, the men available are not qualified physicians, and even more distressing are their reasons for agreeing to the role of Plague doctor in the first place.  What sort of man would agree to risk infection from the poisoned airs of the Black Death, as well as his life?  What madness, or desperation, could drive a man to wear the stifling costume and heavy burden that goes with the thankless task of combating a plague wrought from the airs of hell?

  • ZPlague
    gen, PG13, frightening scenes, violence, blood, experiments)
    This is a project that will *fingers crossed* become a comic.  I've met with an artist on DA who is really awesome and I think would work really nicely for this gritty, dark story idea that I've developed.
    Summary:  In an alternate world where the great war did not take place, people are eager to take up arms against their neighbours.  States fight to leave the countries that hold them in a crushingly tight grip and it seems that there is conflict brimming along the borderlands of most countries in some form or another.  Welcome to England, a bleak shell, eight years into the un-official conflict with Scotland and 15 years since the start of the Anglo-Franco war - the most barbaric fighting seen in the past century - which has been quiet blessedly muted for the past three years.  The King looks to science to offer up alternatives to bullets and what is created is far worse for his land than nuclear warfare might have wrought.  The simplistic, mindless zombies are easy to pick off, so-long as there aren't any higher-class types around to control them and bring any sort of order to their shambling chaos.  Heaven forbid the Unknown Types find the Boulstridge Prison where the survivors huddle.  Unfortunately, Zombies aren't the only thing waiting to kill and devour.

    Character Experiments - These are not officially IN the final story, but rather experiments in characterization so I can get to know these guys.
