Starlight #15: Not of Blood

Cad (Narration): I’m learning things are rarely as simple as they appear. Castor and Nala stare, stricken, at Mr. Emmens. Nala: Malcolm was always an alien? Mr. Emmems: Yes. He crashed in our yard as little more than an infant, and… we took him in. Castor: You took in an alien as your son? Mr. […]

How it Began (a Relic blog post)

The story of Relic could begin in many different places. It could begin with two, the first amateur webseries I produced, or with Cedric Clarke & the Unsettling Dark, the project that this series was birthed from. It could begin when I started to write, or when my friend Zoe and I came up with the basic idea for […]

Starlight #14: Littleville

We begin with Cad and Hunter driving into Littleville, a small quaint farming town in Kansas. Cad (Narration): Just a few hours ago, I was debating whether Team Starlight needed to exist. And, I mean, it’s still a good question. But right now, split up into three different teams, investigating an alien murder mystery? I […]

Starlight #13: Bloodbound

Starlight is a series I started writing for fun in 2016, written in the “style” of a comic book.  As such, this is not my best writing, but it’s something I had fun doing. Nala’s car pulls up to another mansion, huge, well-decorated. As Cad, Hunter, and Nala get out of the car, Castor approaches from his home. Cas: Nala. Nala: Cassie. Castor and Nala embrace. She steps back […]

Starlight #12: E.T.

Ghosts Territory (Anna Farmer #8)

When Anna had first heard Bartholomew name “The Ghosts”, she had envisioned a sort of amateur bowling league, probably comprised of senior citizens as they were the nearest to death. Anna wasn’t quite sure why Jake would join a senior citizens’ bowling league, but she was prepared to respect his choices and commend him on […]

Starlight #11: Ignition

Starlight is a series I started writing for fun in 2016, written in the “style” of a comic book.  As such, this is not my best writing, but it’s something I had fun doing. We begin in a mansion in the countryside: huge, luxurious. Two siblings, Malcolm and Millie, kids maybe 5-10 years older than Cadmus and his friends, sit in a small room, watching the stars. Malcolm: I […]

Back to School (Anna Farmer #7)

It was with great sorrow that Anna trudged back to school the first day following her suspension. She got up early that rainy morning, visiting Oinky and Baby Lion in the barn and tearfully explaining that she would be absent again for a while. Oinky and Baby Lion hadn’t the slightest clue what Anna was […]
