From: Wren & Heila’s Survival Rules
Genre: Survival Horror, Lesbian Romance
“Do you need some water?”Dirt & dust circled in the air of the harsh wastelands around a small camp in the process of being set up. So far, all that stood was a burlap tent, rusted metal spikes begging for the strength to hold down the fabric in the wind, and one lone lantern in the hand of one of the travelers. Just another day in paradise.Wren hammered down the last spike of the tent with the handle of her sword to ensure that her travelling partner was safe inside, returned the blade to the sheath on her back and wiped her forehead with the back of her hand, which were both covered in sweat and dirt. She looked over at Heila who was holding a small metal canteen of warm, dirty water giving her a half-smile, which was about as much as anyone gave these days.“We should wait until the night comes. You have our collection, right?”Heila nodded causing her curly hair to bounce, gesturing to the burlap sack behind her. That was full of the wood scraps they’ve managed to gather on their journey. On the nights they are able to, they start a campfire so they can boil the water before they drink it, and rarely, cook an animal carcass that is usually a little rotten by the time they get to it.Things weren’t always like this. Heila is too young to remember how things used to be, Wren, however was six when the atmosphere shifted. When the asteroids hit. When modern technology met its end. When the world seemed to be in complete shambles instantly, and stayed that way ever since. Wren was the last surviving member of her family, and Heila of hers. Growing up, Wren took care of Heila, and in some ways that never changed.“Wren… Wren… Wren!”Wren jumped and snapped back to the present, seeing Heila out of the tent and out in the elements with her.“Sorry, I was just thinking about something, what?”Heila squinted at Wren with her all-knowing hazel eyes, “The shift again?”Wren didn’t bother lying, she thought about the shift more than was healthy. It was easier for Heila, she didn’t know life as it was before all was lost.“I know, I know. It’s not healthy. I need to focus on now. On trying to survive. I just… know our resources are running low, and it seems we are striking out everywhere we look, and-”“Wren. Come here.”Heila took a few steps backwards, beckoning Wren with her hand, encouraging her to break one of their survival rules before turning around ready for some follow the leader.Rule #9 – Never leave an active campsite emptyWren was about to stop her, then turned toward the tent she had just set up. She sighed and looked back at Heila.“Fine, but make this quick.”There seemed to be nothing but wasteland and empty craters for miles, Wren couldn’t fathom what could possibly be so important to leave their only supplies alone, but Wren couldn’t always be the one taking care of Heila: sometimes she had to trust Heila’s judgment and let her do what she thinks is best for the both of them.Wren followed a few meters behind Heila and watched her stop, turn and grin when she got to the edge of an extremely narrow crack in the ground. She pointed behind her.“Look.”
From: Fire at his Feet
Genre: Fantasy, Gay Romance
Haden was nervous as hell. Showing up to a lesson without any books was big no for him, but he didn’t even know where to start. He arrived at high mage Alister’s study and knocked on the door. It mustn't have been closed all the way, as when he hit it, it opened. …and there he was. Alister sat behind his desk, studying a few scrolls and similarly magicked artifacts.“Am I early?” Haden asked, wondering if he was intruding on something.Alister looked up and Haden noticed he was wearing a pair of thick black rim glasses. They seemed to fall in line with the wrinkles on his haggard face.I’ve never really seen him up close before, Haden thought, His eyes are grey. I always assumed they were hazel or green, but no. They’re slate grey. Stunning. As if he borrowed them from the goddess of war herself.Haden shook himself back to reality. He knew who Alister was and had seen him around, but this… well was going to be hell. Working so closely with a mentor he was most definitely attracted to. Haden was growing extremely self-conscious and the few seconds between his words and Alister’s reply felt like years. He felt himself beginning to sweat and shake.“Oh, no. You’re right, in fact, I lost track of time. My apologies for keeping such a diligent mentee waiting. Please. Make yourself comfortable, I- what are you wearing?” Haden’s under-dressed figure came into Alister’s vision as he took his reading glasses off and set them on the desk.Haden flushed. Looking at Alister’s regal mage robes and jewels made his grey knit shirt and slacks seem like a joke, “I, uh-”Before Haden even had a chance to explain himself, Alister stood up and left, leaving a flustered and confused man looking around the room wondering what to do. Alister had told him to make himself comfortable, but he didn’t even see any chairs. He awkwardly sat down on the floor a distance from Alister’s study desk that still allowed him to see over it and he awaited Alister’s return.-------------------Haden closed his eyes, growing tired. Disappointed. Not knowing if he should just get up and leave at this point, after making such a fool of himself... But it was just as he was ready to give up that Alister returned holding a deep blue, ornate, traditional mage’s uniform. Haden looked at the robe and it’s gold-trimmed intricacies and then back at Alister, who extended the robe like an offering.“It’s amazing… I don’t deserve this,” Haden stammered as he stood up, “I don’t even know if I’ll be able to cast any of the spells you teach me.”Alister stared with his goddess-given eyes, and placed the robes into Haden’s arms, “Even if you fail today, put these on after you leave. Maybe you’ll feel the part, and come back tomorrow. There is more energy in you than you know.”Every word he said held so much wisdom within. And power. Alister exuded power.“Yes… High Mage Alister, sir.”I’m not sure what I’m supposed to call him, Haden thought as he set the robes aside for the time being, but he’s giving me a slight nod, so I think I addressed him properly? I hope?Haden was getting stuck in his own head again, but snapped back as his mentor finally spoke.“Haden,” there was something about the way he said his name, “Let's try some magic.”
