PM: Osteo AuditionOsteo lounged on the roof of a comic shop, a parasol twirling idly above him to provide shade. He turned his head and saw dozens of other such parasols bobbing along the street, floating above the people they were shielding from the sun. Osteo had long since given up on griping about that death star. Eternal daylight was just a fact of life on a world called High Noon. Small wonder its inhabitants revered any bit of darkness that could protect them from the unrelenting burn.
Osteo idly reached down where his hips would be on a solid body, and pulled out a small notepad. "To dooo," he muttered, scanning the pages. "Catch the new movie. Did that." He reached up and flicked his finger across the item, leaving a tiny slash through it. "Investigate 33rd hole in reality this year." Osteo rolled on his side and looked at the silver rip dancing above the center of the roof. "In progress."
He picked up a small brick he'd acquired recently and stood up. He didn't bother to brush the grit off him
Alexander AV MemeAlrighty, welcome to the super-special-awesome official Astrum Venatus meme! Characters, it's time for interrogation. Authors, GTFO and let your creations do the talking.
First off: let's just get this outta the way right now: Mandatory Introduction Time!
Who are you? What are you?
"My name is Alexander. My surname is irrelevant considering any fame it may have once brought was taken when my world was destroyed. Is this what you would call emo? As for what I am, the answer is human. I eat, breathe, sleep, and shit like one, so this new...um, development hasn't changed what I am."
Alllright, now that that's over with, Question #1: So how does it feel to be competing in front of countless billions of life-forms, each one of them tuned in to your every move and possibly watching you on instant replay?
"I once fought a god alongside my friend with the souls of the entire world watching and waiting in the balance. This is smalltime."
And how does it feel to know that many of them are probab
Another Night: An AV SEEverything seems dull when your life and everything in it is suddenly revealed to be a complete lie. The sky is drab, the landscape dreary, and even the natural wonders of Eksha were subdued. Alexander and Samuel had been on their journey for two days. They didn't speak or do anything out of the ordinary, instead going about tasks, making camp, defending from the wildlife, cooking, etc, with mechanical precision. Their faces betrayed no emotion, nothing that might alert an observer that they were anything other than mindless thralls.
But they were once heroes. And their hearts were not so easily-stilled. Silent, furious rage smoldered against the Author. And as the journey had gone on, it did not die, but focused itself, becoming a single pinprick of defiance against their puppetmaster. They no longer had a quest given to bind them to a story, so they would forge their own. One way or another, they would find themselves free of their strings. As Alexander thought of that old man, his f
Wakeup CallAlexander wasn't having a particularly good day. Granted any day that begins with you waking up in the middle of an arena with a crowd screaming for your blood can't really be defined as good by any stretch of the word. Especially when there are two bloodthirsty orks ready to tear you apart for fun. And when they had full automatic miniguns with armor piercing rounds in each hand, well things start to go downhill.
For the moment, Alexander crouched behind a thick wall of rock, listening to the constant roar of bullets and debated his options. One was to go out there and get torn to pieces by what he perceived to be powerful magic. That didn't sit well with him as he rather liked living. Another was to gather his thoughts and then come up with a plan. Only when he reached for his thoughts he found that there were none to be gathered. In fact he was drawing a big blank for his memories, prompting him to wonder just what the hell he'd drank last night. Then the bullets started breaking th

Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
