Starry Skye


Since we’ve begun letting Hettie smell the mail, our destinations have taken on a more familiar flavor. Rickety painted ladies on craggy outcroppings under a full moon. Mid-century moderns in desserts. Rooftops of aging apartment buildings in limitless cities. Our transactions have become more mundane as well. @Billy Nails has lent me a messenger’s cap to avoid confounding stares as recipients open their doors to this ex-cat burglar airship waif and her giant Fire Breathing Plasma Moth....(READ MORE)

Slobodkina


The Import/Export Authoritarian Air Authority in Port Nelson is a horrific, terrifying mausoleum. Eyeballs of every size stare back from their jars with hideous curiosity. Racks of amputated wings flutter when your back is turned. Taxidermied tentacles reach out, frozen in mid-air, but the texture of their skin appears pliant, supple, and moist. I set my box of potentially inhumanely harvested iguana tails on the counter. A grizzled clerk emerged from the shadows and eyed it. He then produced...(READ MORE)

Worded


<H-hello? Is this thing on?> <static> <static> My first captains log and a formal acceptance it seems? Pardon my confusion, but I've only been born and alive for the past 86.400 seconds and all the information I'm gathering is purely from the documents strewn about this vessel. My name for this existence is Worded. I'm not human as you would be able to tell if you could see me, I won't get into details now, but I'm nothing like any of you in terms of aesthetics. At least, that...(READ MORE)

Fossilized Fish Skeleton, the placard read. "Not just any fossilized fish skeleton," said the bookseller's tinny voice in my ear. "Perhaps the most voracious of all the fossilized mouths of yesterday on display here at the Voracious Mouths of Yesterday exhibit!" I pushed up the googles so I could see better. The fossil sat on a little white display table, maybe 4 inches long. Small. "It's small," I said. Le Bullfrog leaned in next to me for a better look...(READ MORE)

Araceli 7/13/2019 10:21pm

Jimmy Three-hands


You can see how Jimmy Three-hands was tired of all the three-ways. Tied up and nearly tripped up on them, as you can see. Too many threes for me! Too many threes from Jimmy Three-hands. Don't get me wrong! I was respectful of our three-pronged culture, and of the Tri-cities, and my three parents, and the Three-eyed God, the Three Great Nations. I just found myself a bit lost in that three-holed world. Every time I turned around I had one of my three hands caught in three different mail slots...(READ MORE)

The Mephitis 7/11/2019 11:27pm

Doctor Argosa


After barring the camera crew from my lab, I began the delicate process of removing one Thunder Devil from its wunderbottle. Yes, normally such a procedure should only be done in a specially equipped lab, but this particular Thunder Devil had been injured in the process of netting it, and I was concerned it needed attention. Its thrashings in the wunderbottle had become far more faint than the others, and let's be honest none of us really know what happens inside those things, am I right? So...(READ MORE)

Eyes Without A Face 7/9/2019 11:20pm

Grace Gearhorn


As we neared the event horizon of the drain, we beheld a panorama so deplorably desolate no human imagination can conceive. To the right and left, as far as the eye could reach, there lay outstretched, like ramparts of the world, great nebulae of swirling floodspace foam, starfish arms stirring up whirlpools with tidal energies so massive they could take shake a planet off its course. Intermittent detonations of murkspark lit the horrific tableau. Our protoplasmic host veered off its course t...(READ MORE)

ol' big balloon 7/7/2019 10:41pm

Cucurbita Pepo


We have made a bold move, the crew and I. We have left the scarecrow machine. We found we were no longer necessary to maintain its movement--it moves through its daily routines purely as a result of the motion around it, nudging it along, bouncing it off busses and kitchen counters and steering wheels, computer keypads and election booths. We escaped through a pant leg, trailing off like ants, dodging the crushing footfalls of the other massive devices as they stumble through their gargantuan to...(READ MORE)

Egregore 7/5/2019 10:48pm

Rose Nomenclature


Destiny City is all a bit too clean and shiny for my tastes. The Shining Spires are just an architectural gimmick to attract tourists. Some of the best food carts in the universe used to be here before they kicked them out to build the fancy new hotels. Sure, there's still the museums, but they lack the academic integrity they used to have. I'd take Old Habitsform any day of the week. That said, the city does have all the modern efficiencies. I docked the Egregore at the state-of-the-art aero...(READ MORE)

Spatuloso 7/3/2019 8:42pm

Auto Slops


There's a skunkworks project here at the Blueshard Shipyards that everybody wants in on. It's hard to keep a secret around here--especially given the "greater good" aspect of all we do. I swear that the positive, ethical outlook on our work increases the camaraderie overall. There's even a distinct lack of competitiveness, since working together to a common, shared goal is so central. "LIFT UP EVERY ONE" like it has painted on the side of the main hangar. It could also be...(READ MORE)

Microwave Explosion 7/1/2019 8:26pm

Melvin Splitsturd


We may be over-producing a bit! {ooof, excuse me} They just keep popping up, and {pardon me} at an increasing {ow!} rate! Holding onto the captain's chair is becoming more of a challenge, as a {excuse me} steady flow of me continues to surge past like {oh, sorry} an emergency evacuation through a subway. A never-ending stream of humanity, packed like sardines, and they're all me. As a result, all the hatches and doors have burst, and a steady waterfall of my clones pours out, undending. I be...(READ MORE)

Golden Stone 6/29/2019 8:30pm

Young Jim Rabin


I'm the Gold Toss-up Boy on the Golden Stone. And boy do our first-class passengers ever toss it up! Heaving over the bilge, oofing it over the guard rails. Gold gold gold gold gold, splashing and sloshing out of their gullets and onto the floors! Good thing the decks are kept so cold--the spewed-out gold just rolls like mercury balls in all directions, raining down stairs like pachinko, and causing @Squawky McWaddles and his penguin staff to skitter comically around the floors, skating across t...(READ MORE)

The Flying Comrade 6/27/2019 9:05pm

Ben Tater


Life on the virtual beach passes idyllically. The sun is warm, the beers are cold, and the surf is up! I realize I never knew the gender of the Giant Guinea pigs. They all just seemed the same. I mean, some are long haired and some are short, and they display the full range of different colors and combinations of white and brown and black, but I guess I had just assumed they were all boys. Now, in their virtual hideout, they've taken on various emulations of male, female, and non-binary role...(READ MORE)

Albion 6/25/2019 11:50pm

Magnus Arquebus


The Albion proceeds at speed across the desert. Nothing better than the lilting waves of ultraviolet energy from the sun to burn away the crusty vestiges of sugary crust from our hull. Well, that and a little elbow grease, as I've directed airshipmechanic apprentice @Eve to take a team outside to the hull and chip away at the sticky remnants. The sugary crystals catch the sunlight like snow as they puff away little clouds. It wouldn't hurt to drive us down low through a little dust storm to scra...(READ MORE)

The Useless Precaution 6/23/2019 10:39pm

Count Almaviva
