Glimmer Girl #3 - “A Deadly Obsession” (Part 2)

The day after the campus attack, and it was all anyone could talk about. Even the Lovin’ Spoonful, Tanya’s refuge from the world of ‘normies’, wasn’t safe.

Trix marched to the corner table with a grimace and a tray, and slammed her partner’s drink down. “Cops have been in here three times already,” she spat. “They know I don’t know anything. For god’s sake, we’re on the other side of the grounds!”

“Any excuse to harass us will do,” Ashley said.

Part Two

The next two days were busy for Jenny. She ate, slept, was tested and kept herself busy so she wouldn't have to think about being stranded here. Finally, the powers people called a halt. A temporary one, only, though. They needed time to digest - and report - what they had already learned.

Glimmer Girl #2 - "A Deadly Obsession" (Part 1)

There are few things so adored as a hero. It was, he supposed, the nature of people to look to those greater than themselves, as though a mirror for their own potential; and though he was not human, Simon was the same.

In a cavern paved with century old brick supported by steel and rust, the brilliant beast had erected a shrine. He’d collected scraps from newspapers and magazines, bookmarked blog posts and articles, saved pictures in dozens of folders, both digital and in print, held to every second of footage he could capture; and in every one she was perfect.

A Little R&R part 3

Stormwall: Chapter 1

The cautions given here are for events described in the long background portion in the middle of the piece.

I could have told this story without all that background info, but she was visiting family, and catching up on everything related to them.

**********

As short a time as a week ago, I thought everything was just as it should be. I was a young male in my junior year of high school, a strong member of our track and field team, and I was doing pretty darn well in my classes, only one B grade in the previous semester.

"This is more private?!" said Gadgetive, as they seated themselves around the weathered picnic table. "There's dozens of folks watching us!"

"You'll notice, though, that they're keeping their distance," said Energia. "That's an unspoken rule; if folks come out here that means they want privacy, and that means they get it. That includes folks keeping their distance, too. It's sort of a school tradition. So, what's going on?"

"You checked for bugs, right?" said Ike.

Identity Crisis - Chapter 1/10: Confessions of a Teenage Hero(ine)


Identity Crisis cover image

Before we begin, an important note about the tone of the story. I started it as a whimsical romp, a superhero action comedy with a TG twist. But along the way it became apparent to me that at its heart it's a coming of age story, with all of the wrinkles that entails.

With their vacation in Darwin planned and transport secured on a VERY heavily modified Hero Team transport plane, our intrepid heroes will discover the answers of many questions that have been alluded to before.

I offer you, The Book of Darwin.

In any case, the Outcasts and Team Kimba are forced to face the dreaded event: Combat Finals for the first time!

A New Superheroine

Stan Lee had it wrong. To think that a spider could bite a man and have a 'spidey sense', make webs from his hands, and climb walls is a little outrageous. Sure, I can agree that a bite from a radioactive, genetically-engineered spider would likely play with your DNA, however, to be realistic, if you were going to create a genetically-engineered, radioactive spider, you'd start with a female spider; and a bite from one of those would not only play with your DNA, it would also play with your chromosomes. Believe me, I know from experience.
