On the island of Calder, names were chosen based on the time of the year a person is born. If your birthday coincided with someone of your family line, you were named in their honor. Unfortunately, the closest ancestor in a young man’s line is a name that will haunt him for his entire life and all the superstition that came with it. No matter how his mentor and father figure claims that it is a name to be worn with pride, he knows that the look in his father’s eyes, the hilmir of their island and leader of the Rekkr Vinfengi, is everything but pride.
He only had to hold out until he turned twenty years old so he could be legally old enough to travel beyond the archipelago and maybe leave the horrible name behind.
Unfortunately, nothing is ever that easy.

In his opinion, those thoughts might have been worth something if there was someone around worthy enough for the kindness and effort they hinted. Why make such suggestions with such a life-tired tone? Why make them at all? It will be out in a matter of hours, the clinical voice in his head said. Though the wind did not smell (more…)
Beyond the door, he could hear the steady thump–whoosh, thump– whoosh of the man’s heart beating and the scratch, scratch, scratch of his pen across paper. It was a familiar sound. It made him think of his parents, and the long hours, sometimes late into the night, they spent managing the family’s finances. He remembered being small enough to crawl into his father’s lap when he couldn’t sleep to watch them work. Before the pain of those thoughts could distract him, he knocked three times and waited for the man to grant him entry. It wasn’t long before he heard (more…)
“Ready?” Juliette turned towards the voice to see nothing but a cloth covered sternum. Honestly, if she was not accustomed to people being taller than she was, she might have freaked out a little bit. However, she was the only daughter in a family of large German boys, so the sight was nothing new. Slowly, she tilted her head up until the sternum grew shoulders, a neck, and a handsome face she vaguely recognized. She smiled at his expressionless face. Somehow, the lack of emotion did not make him frightening or detract from his handsome features. His blue eyes were (more…)
For a cold, black moment, his breath stops and he tears torn free of R.E.M. and twenty-one days past.
Sometime closer to the zero hour, he’d pulled the army green fleece to tangle around him against his cold sweat. It does nothing for his shivering since it’s more holes than blanket, but it’s the only thing he has. Silence roars and stabs spikes of pain into his brain. He should be asleep. His body can’t take much more of this. He knows this, but he can’t. Read more “Of Marvel & Mayhem”
