    Summary

    When extremist Ronan the Accuser broke away from the Kree Empire and embarked on a genocidal crusade of his own, a small world of totally serious, pretty literal people strove for survival by forging a peaceful (albeit begrudging) alliance with Xandar.  Drax the Destroyer was among this planet's four representatives, who were elected by their planet's largest tribes and were the first of their species to speak with Nova Prime.

    Needless to say, the road to Xandar wasn't easy to travel.  

    In a metaphorical sense.  

    Because a road between two planets isn't feasible to build, unless one of the planets involved was technologically advanced enough or mind-bogglingly rich enough to afford the incredibly heavy duty materials required  to make the thing safe enough to cross, and you very well can't travel an unbuilt--alright, alright, I'll stop right there.

    The first of a three-part origin story about how Drax the Destroyer wound up a miserable asshole doing time at Kyln.

    Our evil is just a product of our good.

    After all, it's the goodness in others that brings out the bad in us.

    Summary

    The shadow was there out of habit, out of conscious and very real fear of failure. Habit because he knows that there is no one there. But he can never be certain.

    The flash of red could be so many different things. A flash of red accompanied by yellow, and green, his past and ending. A flash of red, his sins, goals, and retribution?
    But no, he knows what that flash of red means, because if he catches it long enough it will turn green.

     

    Jason is bleeding out on the dirty floor of his second to worst safe-house, in the third worst part of Gotham. He has to make a choice. Seek help or succumb to the darkness always moving closer in the corner of his eye.

    Summary

    Stiles grew up on a ship with his mother Claudia until he was fifteen. After a whirlwind of events, he ends up back on his home planet with his father and is thrown into normal, civilian life, complete with school, work and unrequited love. It takes years to adjust from his previously explosive lifestyle. However, just when he believes he can put his past behind, he's quite literally swept right back into the thick of things.

    A futuristic, steampunk inspired universe with witty mechanics, an unfolding mystery and a ship crew that must be some kind of alien species because their eyes keep glowing.

    “I heard a rich ship landed in the docks just a few hours ago," Mary called from near the oven.
    Stiles couldn’t help his piqued interest from showing as he sat up a bit straighter on the stool.
    “You and yer gossiping,” Doc shook his head as he wiped down the counter for anticipated customers, “going and givin’ the boys ideas, now.”
    Stiles blushed and shot the man a sheepish smile.
    “Oh, stop it. He’s done with all that shenanigans, now aren’t you darling?”
    With a mouth full of bread he grinned and mumbled out a ‘yes ma’am.’

    Summary

    Eve's skin was peeled away, her joints torn off, revealing a body of gears and silicon. From the tower's window, #9 watched her sink into the Mare Sirenum. 'I no longer feel pity for that doll. Because I know that I am also one, created by Houdin,' he thought to himself, alone in his small room in the observation station. Whether that doll did or did not have a heart, it didn't matter to him. As he stood, he also thought this as well, 'The fact that I have a heart is a secret that belongs only to me.'
