Tergonaut pulled himself out of the water and walked on the wooden dock.  Water dripped silently from his orange and blue segmented armor as he swept his visor over the shipping warehouse that stood in front of him.
“I have the building's blueprints from City Hall's Public Works Department,” said TINNER's voice directly into his ear, as a holographic outline of the building formed in his Heads-Up Display for him to see.  “This is a short-term storage facility for incoming goods, before they are distributed to stores but after being brought in from ships.  There are no security measures to bypass.  The only entrances are at groun

Ahead, the night-shaded sand stretches out as far as I can see.  Step, step.  A glance over my shoulder.  Big, black rocks strewn across the landscape, some huge, some smaller.  Climbed out of that.  Don't want to go back.
Face forward again.  Step, step, step.  My arm.  Raise it, look at it.  Is that my arm?  I think so, but there's something more.  My arm is inside those muscles and thin wires.  No, not wires, more like tubes, pumping, heartbeat.  Flex the hand, notice the glistening red fluid coating my arm.  Blood?  Am I bleeding?  No, not bleeding, but I'm covered in a thin layer of

Drache and Stocker: Encounter
The soldier cried out as he fell flat on his face on the cold stone floor.  Blood stained his gray military fatigues, then pooled under his prone body as he lay lifeless, a broken doll on the floor in front of Drache Randwulf.
"You couldn't protect them," said the tall, thin gentlemanly figure standing across the hall from Drache, his pale skin and lantern jaw outlined in the near-darkness of the old castle walls.  He gestured at the other dead bodies that lay on the floor or propped up against the walls.  "Just like you couldn't protect them back then, could you?"
Drache's lips pulled back and he showed teeth as he growled, but he restrained the impulse for his muscles to propel him forward in a mad charge of anger.  He instead gripped his furry fingers more tightly around the long handle of his sword, the blade a foot thick in width and tall as a man in length, and forced his rage to stay in check.  The wrap around the handle was comf

Macross Horizon pilot trailer
Macross Horizon
pilot episode, Macross fan fic, 2060 AD
Aboard the bridge of the Irrefutable, Captain Eliza Winters sat upright in her command chair, looking out the viewport to space.  "Ensign, can you tell me what I'm looking at?" she asked, her voice controlled.
"I don't have to pull up the records, Ma'am," replied the ensign in a deep voice, who turned in his chair and looked over at the captain.  Even miclonized, the Zentradi ensign was a large man.  "It's definitely a Supervision Army ship, a cruiser."
"Any signs of life?"
The ensign turned back to his console, and the holographic display next to the arm of Eliza's chair showed a variety of schematics and diagrams of the gray ship floating in space ahead of them.  "If there were, we likely would have been shot at by now, Ma'am."
"I don't want assumptions, Mr. Gurlog, I want answers," she said, sternly furrowing her brow.
"I apologize, Ma'am...initial scans indicate no power, and mini

Battle Sequence
A Tergoshort
Featuring the characters of Tergonaut and Arikyrenne
The middle of the street cracked open and erupted a geyser of water that threw Tergonaut high into the air.  As onlookers panicked and fled along the sidewalks, Tergonaut activated his omni-suit's ion jets and stabilized, hovering in the air as beads of water dripped down his smooth orange and blue armor.
"Looks like you're all washed up, Tergonaut!" shrieked the cyborg who sprang out of the geyser and stood on top of the cresting water.  The cyborg's black and silver armor was interspersed with transparent tubes through which water pumped to a backpack connected from a water main below.  He aimed his right arm, an oversized cannon, at Tergonaut.  "Wiped out?  Here, let me finish this with a clean sweep!"
Tergonaut swerved around the torrent of water that emerged from the cyborg's arm.  "Sorry, Storm Drain, but your

I gotta write more often.

Not just in this journal, though it is eerie that it feels like I wrote the last entry just yesterday instead of a whole year ago.  But also more in general.  I have big plans to rewrite Tergonaut into what could possibly be a series of books (not like huge epic-length books, but a respectable episodic length), I have ideas about various fan fiction, I just need to write more.  I'm sure you've all heard this sorta thing before (and if you are a writer, you probably feel the same way yourself), so I'm not gonna focus this journal on beating myself up for not doing stuff I wanted to do.  Just more of a reminder that time zips by all too fast and I'd better get stuff written, or else it ain't gonna get done.  So, I'll be trying to work on that and some other projects this upcoming year, so stay tuned.

I'm at the tail end of another trip back home for Christmas, here on my birthday.  In fact, I would likely not be writing this entry and would be on the road at this minute had it not been for an untimely flat tire on the car we were going to use for the long drive.  The good news is that it can be fixed, and it is only a delay of about a day, and we were leaving a little earlier than we needed to to account for exactly this sort of setback, so no real harm done.  More importantly, no one got hurt when the tire blew out.  I likely would not have gotten all my packing ready and done in time anyway, being the notorious procrastinator that I am, so I can finish that tonight so I'll be ready to roll tomorrow, with plenty of sleep for what will likely be a twenty-four hour drive, give or take.  And we can have birthday cake this evening with everyone present, instead of haphazardly at the last second right before leaving.

It is hard to sum up a year fairly.  It was a lazy year for me, 2015; a year I spent doing a fairly physically active schedule, with hiking and weightlifting, combined with taking care of errands for my grandmother while helping her watch her budget, and nearly every night playing Guild Wars 2 or watching online videos with my regular "gaming crew" as I sometimes call them.  But that's the majority of what I did, and while I did get started on one of my long-awaited fan fiction projects, I haven't gotten the first story to completion.  Nor for that matter did I find a job that suited me, though I'd be lying if I said I was trying really hard.  I could afford to live without one, so I decided to.  Odd thing about that; I seem to get more accomplished when I have a regular working schedule than when I am technically "free" of work responsibilities or time restrictions.  I guess I can do more with my time when I know I've got less of it to spend on myself.

Nevertheless, I do feel blessed - both in the literal and figurative senses - by having had a few weeks back at my parents' home, to give me a little refreshment before returning to my usual responsibilities and getting some more ideas for stories.  It was a welcome break from my usual routine.  I've been having feelings of wanderlust lately, a desire to travel somewhere new and have a fresh start there on my own, rent an apartment, get a real feel for the world.  I think this will help assuage that for a while.

Well, let's see what this upcoming year has for us, shall we?

Life and Story go on.  To the reader, I'll see you later!

Why thank you! It was a good birthday, all things told; once people at my job knew I had a birthday, pizza was ordered and I got a cupcake, a cookie, and a balloon on top of it all! And then I got to finally open my presents. I'll have to take pictures of the things I got as soon as I finish constructing them all!
