Pluto Needs Porn!

by Shiawasena Ryokō-sha   The sound of a groan brought John groggily around, the sound strangely expansive in his ears after the confines of his helmet. Oh no, his helmet.  The last he remembered, they’d been out on the ice, getting a core sample so they could pick a good spot to set up the […]

by Shirozubon Saruko (城図凡然る子) DAY 292 The thing loomed up over him, blotting out the windscreen in his vision, taking up almost all of the space in the flight deck. It hardly even looked like anything recognizably alive: it was just a twisting mass of fibrous, tangling filaments, no sense or order in them that […]

Rule 63

by shukyou (主教) illustrated by Tamago (卵)   Like any good scientific endeavor, the Parallel Universes Research Laboratory ran on rules, and we all had our favorites. It was hard not to — they were all absolutely necessary, and yet so weirdly specific that you sort of couldn’t not get attached. Maggie latched onto the […]

Mending Porch

by Hyakunichisou 13 (百日草 十三) Read this piece’s entry on the Shousetsu Bang*Bang wiki.   So I know it’s been a while Keith looked down at the screen, frowning.

moon language, et cetera

by Lee Gabrielle Crow Read this piece’s entry on the Shousetsu Bang*Bang wiki. April truly is the rainiest month. Of course, the Crescent City is no stranger to moisture – a city built atop a swamp on the Mississippi’s mouth, gradually sinking ever lower until one day, the sandbags won’t work and the levees will […]
