Dawn Episode 2DawnEpisode 2Mindscape "Hello?" Chris shouted as loud as he could. He stood on a long pathway of tree roots that appeared to have been grown and not constructed. All around hung white mist that spiraled in and around itself, almost as if it were alive. With the end of the pathway just behind him, Chris quickly decided to walk forward. Shadows danced to the sides of the walkway out of the corner of his eyes, but remained still whenever he looked directly at them. Then he ran and became shrouded in the cloud-like world that surrounded him. Eventually the mists parted to reveal a large tree, its blue branches aglow in the light that came from the lake below. Streams of water fell from its many leaves into the bowl below without causing so much as a ripple. As he neared the serene sight, he couldn't help but feel peace in its presence. A su
North Technical Term 1North TechnicalTerm OneDrop Sequence "Welcome to North Technical Station!" a male voice shouted from the thousands of speakers in the cieling, an attempt to be heard over the engine of the star bus. Thousands of snaps overrode the words filling his mind, deceleration fields bringing the shuttle to a halt. His brown eyes turned to the window and the planet that lazily drifted below, its blue oceans glowing in the yellow sun's light. Several mechanical claws reached past the thin glass separating him from the void and jostled the ship in an attempt to latch onto their respective locations. Then the vessel was underway, being guided through a well lit tunnel that would lead to a landing platform. In the window's reflection he noticed his reflection's short emerald hair and the black streaks he could never dye. The tunnel quickly faded his reflection away as it turned to a paradise. With a metallic
Splitter-V 10Splitter-VLab Note 10Cybernetic Streetlight Shadows Jace lit another cigarette as he sat beside Eric. His pine green eyes watched the two head-tails twist about each other for a while before the young man finally snapped. "What the heck is with these things!" he shouted as his hands grabbed them and pulled forward, "Why do I have them and why can't they just die down!" "You have them because you're supposed to have them: your brief transfer through the 'outside' altered your genetic code." The cyber realized Eric hadn't let go and added, "You're going to have one hell of a headache." "What are you…" he began before he suddenly clutched his cranium in agony. "Told ya," Jace mumbled as he took another breath of his cigarette. A static filled box appeared in the upper left corner of his vision, as much an indicator of something going wrong
Splitter-V 9Splitter-VLab Note 9Graveyard of the Mind Azure lights pulled upwards along his skin as the Cy drifted downwards in a crystalline sarcophagus. Beyond the crystalline walls flashed a colony of human bodies that marched to organized chaos like an army of ants. In the corner of his vision emerged his Hacker, "Zane?" "What are you doing back here?" she shouted, "You know Irving wants your head!" His eyebrow rose, even though he knew she couldn't see it, "what did I do this time?" Zane's voice calmed as a hand rubbed her brow, "nothing much, ya just broke every last law in the establishment." "What are laws in the face of morality?" the Cy asked. "Laws are everything if there are no records of the decisions you made," she retorted, "I keep telling you not to switch off the communica
Dawn Episode 1DawnEpisode 1To Never Return Glass shards spread across the room with the liquid they once held back: the end of a glowing green cylinder marked with the letters XIII. All of the scientific personnel in the room turned to watch a human teenager's body slowly and painfully writhe on the cold metallic floor. A pair of silver-blue eyes slowly opened as it forced itself into a crouch from its crumpled position. Red shone in the depths of his iris, slowly bleeding through sapphire until only crimson remained. He surveyed the room as the grotesque tail which sprouted from the bottom of his spine slowly became covered in gray fur until it resembled that of a wolf. Spread throughout the chamber were a multitude of shafts similar to the one he had just broken from; some were macabre displays of what might have once been humans while others showcased half-dissected beasts both beautiful and bizarre.
