Saturday afternoon at “Mrs. London’s Bakery and Tea shop.” The smell of freshly baked bread wafts from the shop and Ara watched with binoculars as Mrs. Dunning swayed in with a pearl choker around her neck and a sophisticated chocolate colored parasol to match her dress. It was Thomas’ cousin’s birthday that night and his aunt had been pulled aside for “more important” engagements. So, Mrs. Dunning, being the natural sweetheart she is, offered to pick it up. It was a green tea flavored…

I had lost track of time while waiting. How long had it been since my captain locked me in the brig? How long had it been? I hadn’t done anything, nothing at all. But still, the crew was so forceful but I don’t know; that could have been because I fought back. Either way, when Chanter finally opened the cell door and let me out, I was right pissed off. We went up to the deck and there, waiting for me, was the entire crew.
“Will you care to explain what the hell that was about?” I…Continue

We had landed in the upper Galilee, near the city of Tsfat and I shivered in the rainy mountainous air. We were waiting for Chanter and Dominique to come back from scoping the area for a place to stay. I stood rocking back and forth when I felt a tap on my shoulder.
“Are you cold?” Bentley asked, walking up next to me. Have you guys met Bentley? Ben’s quite the character. When working, it’s as if he has no morals but when there’s nothing to do, he’s actually one of the cuddliest,…Continue

“When you to drop me in the nowhere?” Kolfifa asked one night as we were digging into a stir-fry made by Dominique. The whole crew looked up a bit shocked.
“ma?” What? I asked, not really processing that he spoke English. He stood up and jumped onto the table in front of me, squatting down and staring sharply.
“I say, when you to drop me in the nowhere. That your job, no?” He asked slower. I exchanged glances with Marlow who was sitting right next to…Continue

So, I don’t think I’ve ever explained the living conditions of the S.S Silver Widow. Here’s the deal. One fifth (that’s an uneducated guess) of the third lowest deck is for residential space and the only people with their own room are me, captain Bennet, Mercurian, Roderick, and Dominique due to some sort of deal with the captain that was made when she first joined the Widow. I know nothing about it and she doesn’t say anything about it so, therefore, I don’t ask.
When you walk down…Continue

“Kolfifa means monkey” I pointed out, staring blankly at the lanky Israeli man swinging from the crow’s nest to the stern of the airship we had come across. “Why is he called kolfifa?” I asked.
“I’m sorry,” The captain of hasod shachor started sarcastically, “Do you not see how this man gets around?” He gestured to Kolfifa again even though I was already watching him climb up the mast of the ship and swing from net segment to net segment that was attached to the balloon of the…Continue

Let me tell you a story about a wonderful captain.
She was originally a scientist's daughter. Stuck in stiff corsets, and satin. Listening to men with mustaches ramble about Blue Matter..
She was 16, smart and HATED the ground.
So one day, she woke up and put on her loose corset, went to her father's basement wearing a pair of his pants and started to draw. She drew and drew and calculated and finally had a beautiful airship plan.
She took it to her friend Tressa…Continue

"...Men, this is going to be one of your toughest battles to date. You may not make it but, you will be saving the world from imminent danger." The young lieutenant finished speaking after motivating speech. He gave the podium to the young ensign. "Men as you know we are going against the Wraith, James Callaghan a.k.a. Tura' Lu. Captain Bellicose will be the Commanding officer for this mission. We will be using the his ship The Spirit. Each one of you has been issued an aether suit which…Continue
Wilhelm snarled as he stormed into his living quarters. His cane sounding more like the pounding of a hammer on the floor as he made his way across the living room to his chair near the windows.
Through those windows he could see out over most of the area around him and clearly see the skyline of London. While normally the view was one he enjoyed he barely looked at it before pulling a rolling cabinet to his chair. Yanking the doors open he pulls out a bottle with no label. The liquid…Continue
