    What kind of star systems are we looking at here? Any sign of activity?
    Just the usual signals.

    You have a visitor.
    What? Who? I haven’t had a visitor in goin’ on twenty years now.
    Well, seems you do.
    Hot damn. Are you sure?

    Speak! Speak, I say.
    ….Alright.

  • Amanda commented on the post, local 6 years, 8 months ago

    We’ll go to a local shop for a lot of the things. I know what you’re thinking, they probably would keep less track of us if we went somewhere big time. Well, guess again. They probably will think that too. Know what I mean? If we pick up a shovel at the small town one, well, what of it?

  • Amanda commented on the post, guard 6 years, 9 months ago

    The guard shifted, wrapping himself in his arms. It was cold as all hell. He tried to light a smoke, maybe warm himself up from the inside, but the damp air wasn’t having it. “Fuck.” He said. Only eight more hours to go, standing ankle deep in slush in the middle of nowhere.

    I took a class at this little bakery down in the back of the alley. We learned to make icing and frost the ever loving shit out of some cakes. It was fun. I found out later it was a front for a human trafficking […]

  • Amanda commented on the post, patrol 7 years, 1 month ago

    I kept an eye on the nigh patrol. I have a good angle from this vantage point. The radio at my side crackled softly. Just waiting for that one word, and it was show time. The guards rounded the corner and […]

  • Amanda commented on the post, adviser 7 years, 1 month ago

    You’ll need to speak to your adviser first. Do you know where to find him? Third sub-basement, follow the long corridor past the machinery, and knock lightly on the second door on the left. He gets pissed if you […]

    Look at the configuration at the top of the page. That’s what you’re aiming for. This has to go down to the precise second. When the firework show starts, you better be at the top of the water tower ready for […]
