No Consolation, a CONSOLE story by @captainraz

Reposted from here. When the shit hits the fan it’s tempting to hide, batten down the hatches and ride out the storm. Grief hits the heart hard, tears it apart And makes it feel like every beat is bleeding. But here’s the thing: This is the moment where we get back up again, Broken and

Labyrinth, a LABYRINTH poem by @CaptainRaz

Reposted from here. My feet take me down an untrod path that twists and turns which way and that I cannot find my way. No time! No time! Is it left or right? I cannot remember there is nothing other than this maze I’m in. Goblin King, Goblin King take pity on an old sinner.

Catch, a CATCH story by @CaptainRaz

Reposted from here. If I fall, will you catch me? I stand on the edge, wind whipping at my hair, making it stream out behind me in tendrils. I close my eyes, enjoying the breeze against my skin. Up here the wind is strong, powerful, and it makes me feel the same. It is a

The Battle of Sun Pass, a DIRIGIBLE story by @CaptainRaz

Reposted from here. The airship shuddered beneath her feet. “Hold her steady!” yelled Captain Amris. The retort of cannon fire filled the air around her, threatening to shake her ship apart. “Stay your course.” The battle was going badly. Fifteen Imperial airships were burning already, and the stench of gas and charred flesh filled Amris’

Train, a TRAIN story by Captain Raz @captainraz

Reposted from here. The smell of engine oil reminded her of her grandfather. He’d been an engineer on the railways, and the smell of grease clung to his clothes and skin like cologne. She would probably always recognise that smell, and it would always bring to mind memories of her grandfather. She’d worshipped him when

Bite, a BITE story by Captain Raz @captainraz

Reposted from here. Dani hadn’t realised it could be this cold without actually, you know, snowing. Stuck on a mountainside in April with nothing but a sleeping bag and a few millimetres of the highest tech tent material between her and the elements wasn’t exactly her idea of fun, but here she was. She always

RISK, a RISK story by @CaptainRaz

Reposted from here. The game. That is all there is. Nothing exists outside the game. No rules. No winners. No losers. Inside the game there is only victory, or death. The greatest heroes in the galaxy all played the game. You don’t get to a position of power and influence without taking a few risks,

Seed, a SEED story by Captain Raz @captainraz

Reposted from here. I’ve carried it with me for years. The seed lives in a locket around my neck. I never take it off. It’s a small thing, so tiny, but it means so much. It represents hope. There has been precious little of that the last few years. First there was the drought. No

Ring by @CaptainRaz

Reposted from here. The ring was given to me by my grandmother, a family heirloom. No one knew how old it was. It had been in the family longer than anyone could remember; my grandmother’s grandmother had given it to her and she’d received it from her grandmother. It was old. Unspeakably so. Family rumour

Toothbrush by Captain Raz @captainraz

Reposted from here. It’s just a toothbrush, isn’t it? But if that’s the case why is it scaring her so badly? Because it’s not just a toothbrush, it’s a symbol. Having her own toothbrush round the other woman’s apartment means something. It means that they’re thinking about this being more than what they’ve been pretending
