Drop crow by @Kendersrule

Reposted from here. “Drop the CROW, ensign.” “Aye sir, dropping CROW… now, sir.” Ensign Donovan’s fingers hit two touch-buttons, and the spy-bot dropped away from the ship. As it skimmed the atmosphere of the little emerald planet, the CROW opened its wings and engaged tiny anti-grav thrusters on their undersides. No heat signature here. “ETA

Two in the Hand by Sparkly Dust @art_of_serenity

Reposted from here. “Bloody well drop it!” I cocked my head and looked at her. The woman shrieked at me again, startling me and making me jump. I stumbled and fell backwards, fluttering down to the patio below. I shook out my ruffled feathers and glanced around. The tits and a couple of blackbirds were

Crow by Rob @Rob_O_Parsons

Reposted from here. There was a tapping at the window. What? he thought. Tap, Tap Tap, then the cry of crow…. What? He looked around and sitting on the window as a big black crow. It looked right at him. Tap tap tap it went on the window. Wierd what it doing that for. He

It had been just a few weeks since he had died, and she was relieved that her father had never been a hoarder

The Crematorium by HattySC @hattysc

Reposted from here Sally stood alone at the front of the crematorium chapel.  The pallbearers from the funeral home stood a few pews behind her, the vicar at the front.  He was doing his best, but it was all pretty depressing. She had found letters and books and photographs but nothing had given her much

Relative by Captain Raz @captainraz

Reposted from here It is a well documented fact that time slows down as you approach the speed of light. It was one of the things complicating off-world travel. The other, of course, being that you can’t go faster than the speed of light, at least not without breaking physics in some new and exciting

Relative by Laura M @LauraMullan

Reposted from here Christmas was going to be a real drag this year, Felicity decided. Mother was coming, which meant that the house was actually going to have to be cleaned for once. Not so much for mother’s benefit as she was mostly deaf and completely blind, but because she would be bringing Grace, her
