Shattered City: 4/Generality

City of Heroes has been sapping my life. It's sad. It's a fucking MMORPG. But there's just something about it that keeps dragging me back for a fix of crack, in times when I can't be bothered to do anything important like thinking.

I have the day off because the Easter Bunny died or something. This is good, as it gave me no excuse for avoiding figg's birthday in the Hoose last night. Ahhh, the pub. Ahhh, the people. Much enjoyment was had. Today was going to be spent exploring the shape of consciousness, but having no filthy assistant until daedalus668 drags his arse up here, I decided to write and drink instead. One is going well, the other isn't. Given the title of this post, I leave it to the reader to decide which is which.

Lots of new people reading and to read since getting here. Interesting seeing the shape of my friends list now. But enough of this babbling. There are story below. Unlike most of my stories, which are one-shots (Atomic America below, for example), this isn't. It's a 10K-ish in words noir thriller set in a future Edinburgh. I just write it in parts because that way I can convince myself eac chapter is a short story and thus actually get it finished.
