  • Linked – S1E16

    Jack sat outside the winery’s warehouse, watching the occasional patrol saunter lazily by. Renaud may inspire fear in them when he was present, but the moment he left, all desire excel in their duties left with him. They would do the work – would probably be sacrificed to the council leaders’ murderous appetite if they […]

  • Monsters – Chapter 2

    Lauren hated the tiny snakes – about four inches long, kinda like worms, but green and scaly – in the long grasses. For that reason alone they had chosen the hillside, but now that plan was moot. She didn’t want to go, but Gabriel was right: the trees weren’t protecting them. Before completely abandoning Judas, […]

  • Monsters, Chapter 1

    To the residents within the walled city: Monsters are real. I’m not talking the hypothetical monsters under the bed, or merely unkind people. I’m talking tangible, bona fide monsters. Like a scientist labeled a bunch of legs, each with a terrifying animal trait, then handed the collection to a toddler. The resulting creatures are running […]

  • Linked – S1E15

    If you haven’t started this story from the beginning, this one won’t make too much sense. I suggest you start here before continuing.   “You did what?” Jack had heard Victor’s words clearly, but still had trouble understanding them. “I couldn’t stay. Symon –” “Has Sarah now as his personal guinea pig!” Jack finished, livid. “You abandoned […]

  • Linked – S1E14

    If you haven’t started this story from the beginning, this one won’t make too much sense. I suggest you start here before continuing.     Victor? Anytime you want to take over…. Sarah looked from Marcus’s smug grin to the guns and back. I don’t think we’re fighting out of this one. He was right. For the […]

  • Linked – S1E13

    If you haven’t started this story from the beginning, this one won’t make too much sense. I suggest you start here before continuing.   “Thank you.” They were the last words Victor expected to hear from Jack. Since he had woken up, Victor had received nothing but the cold shoulder from his companion. He had assumed it […]

  • Linked – S1E12

    If you haven’t started this story from the beginning, this one won’t make too much sense. I suggest you start here before continuing.   “I don’t like it,” Jack answered Sarah the moment her plan left her mouth. “Shocker!’ she teased back. “Any plan with any risk at all, you’re ready to throw in the towel.” “That’s […]

  • Linked – S1E11

    If you haven’t started this story from the beginning, this one won’t make too much sense. I suggest you start here before continuing.   “Didn’t go well, I take it?” Victor asked as soon as Jack rejoined him in the truck outside the bar. The young man was alone, and gushing blood from his nose. Jack leaned […]

  • Linked – S1E9

    If you haven’t started this story from the beginning, this one won’t make too much sense. I suggest you start here before continuing.   Sarah was sure of several things: she needed a shower; she needed a nap; most of all, she needed ice cream. The rest of the world, she couldn’t speak for, but cookie dough […]

  • Linked – S1E7

    If you haven’t started this story from the beginning, this one won’t make too much sense. I suggest you start here before continuing. Sarah was torn from her unnatural sleep, unsure if the scream was her own. Her world was so black, doubt doused her again that she had even managed to open her eyes. It was […]
