Function AU: Leap

*SPOILER ALERT for original Function series! Also contains strong language and minor graphic scenes* Whether it was enough that Geoff had found her would boil down to this moment. Specifically, it would boil down to whether he had run fast enough from Copper, Wolf and Yeti to keep himself out of their line of sight. … Continue reading Function AU: Leap

Function AU: Rail

*SPOILER ALERT for original Function series!* Also contains strong language. Janet took one look back at the trashed bus stops and trashier inhabitants, then a longer look at this bizarre device. She had been so long without a phone - and that had been for a reason. They, her, we had been the reason. But … Continue reading Function AU: Rail

Function AU: Well…

*SPOILER ALERT for original Function series!* Also contains scenes of a graphic nature. With ease, his vein-and-muscle minions wrestled Gordon's former brother into the mulch, and he listened to him quietly suffocating under the choking world. Strangely, he couldn't bring himself to eat his brother, or even retrieve the remains for later. It shouldn't have … Continue reading Function AU: Well…

#25yearsonearth: Ix & Icarus [Cracked Pins]

This writing contains potential triggers. If sensitive, approach with caution.

(For those on my Instagram, you might see me posting a lot of digitally 'rejuvenated' images at the moment as I approach the big 25, along with quotes or references to old stories I've written that I'm fond of. Despite being a favourite character of sorts, this fella never had a proper story, so I … Continue reading “Pandapa”, the Sock Panda: #25yearsonearth

‘Rest’ (The Other Mr. Whitfield)

With fluctuating self-esteem, resting can be like confectionary. Recharging is like sugar, making you warm inside, calm about the future and its plans and in the moments of meditation. Then with all rises comes crashes. You become fidgety. Conscious that people might think you've given up trying or can't do as much as you used … Continue reading ‘Rest’ (The Other Mr. Whitfield)

The Other Mr. Whitfield: Heal

(Personal) We were atop Dartmoor five years ago now, in dryer if not more spectacular conditions. Not that it mattered: what was important was the rolling of round stones under our feet and the steady warmth emerging in our clasped hands. Togetherness felt effortless then. We were at the stage, then, where we could answer … Continue reading The Other Mr. Whitfield: Heal
