Some You Can Save
There were ashes everywhere. The young squire stood in the gutted manor, her duster flapping in the breeze from the shattered windows. Her name was Thea Dorran and the scales round her crocodilian eyes marked the tainted blood she had inherited from her great grandmother. Her Hexanhounds roamed back and forth sniffing everything. The baron was so upset he was coming close to treason in his ranting.Robert O'Carroll
Review of Somewhere Between 1.7
So we found out in Somewhere Between 1.7 the other night that Nico is not a killer, just a "black-out" drunk, which we already knew (both attributes), and that Tom is pretty bad after all, though I still can't see him doing anything to hurt let alone kill his daughter.
Is Marilyn Monroe a Time Traveling Sexter?
Marilyn Monroe is more popular today than she ever was in her own lifetime, and there are those who claim she never really died.Reid Moore
The Books No One Reads
One simply must not keep strange ideas bottled up inside them. I feel, perhaps, in some part, people can become quite insane if they keep their odd thoughts too closely guarded. Because of this, I mentioned an eccentric idea to a friend, and he was quite bemused and thought my ideas silly but complimented me on my imagination.
The War with a Sole Survivor
I’ve been training for this day my entire life. The day my combat training comes into play and I have to invade the Ovum Regno. The Ovum Regno is by far the most dangerous place our army knows of. Millions of us set out to find it a month, and only a few hundred make it there. Yet, even of those few hundred, we are told from the beginning that only one will be chosen to enter.Toy Caulder
History of Star Wars: Battlefront
Star Wars: Battlefront is one of the most successful game series in the Star Wars franchise, and it's been getting more and more popular every year.

Review of Twin Peaks: The Return 1.16
Well, by the far the best episode of Twin Peaks: The Return—1.16—with the two-hour finale on tap for next week (though the inside the atom bomb episode was a nonpareil story in itself). But last night—
Screaming Metal (Part 016)
Expanding outward as if reaching for her face, several spider-legged flashes danced before her eyes before dissipating. Priyanka blinked away the afterflashes.Made in DNA
Between Here and There
She had only meant to swim a little way out when a rush of movement thrust her forward. In her final moments, it wasn’t the water that got her, it was the cold. It mangled her limbs into excruciating uselessness, no matter how much she fought to keep her head above the water, foaming waves pushed her to the ocean floor. Her heart thumped a single heavy beat as she was propelled into the thick seaweed.Sophie Wilks
All Hail The Robot Overlords
Elon Musk thinks that we are on the brink of a Robopocalypse. With machine learning making leaps and bounds, it is easy to understand his fear. We’ve had warnings enough since Asimov’s day that as artificial intelligence outpaces our own ability to learn, it will become increasingly hard for us to control it. In the same way that our motivations are foreign and incomprehensible to the dogs and cats that we keep as pets, an artificial intelligence would desire things that we cannot begin to understand.Haybitch Abersnatchy
Playing Games for Science
Game designers and scientists collectively view games (board, card and digital) as an underused medium for children and adults to engage with science, and learn innovative technical concepts. In a broader trend, researchers have even begun to assume the role of game developer and create independent games (#Indiegames) that allow users to navigate consequences of core scientific phenomena, including antibiotic resistance and climate change, in an interactive gaming experience.Thamarasee Jeewandara
Are There Wormholes at the Black Holes' Core?
What happens when you remove the singularity from a black hole? A wormhole might appear right in the center of it. Can you go through, can we travel through time? Nobody knows for sure, but in case you are immensely bold, the easiest way to find out is diving right into it.
