Even More Stupid Questions With The Infected Cast

Today’s stupid question – If you could live within one fictional universe, what would it be? Roan: Star Trek. Dylan: Um, hmm … tough one. I’m torn between Doctor Who and Harry Potter … let’s go Harry Potter. It’d be great to throw spells around. It’d certainly make doing the laundry a lot easier. Holden: Mad Max. (Why?) I’d be a great killer of warlords. Paris: Ooh … I’m trying to think of a sexy one, and it just brings to mind that there aren’t a lot of sexy alternate worlds, are there? What about Cowboy Bebop? That seems like it’d be fun. Grey: Slap Shot. (Not sure that counts.) Fine, what did Roan pick? Trek? Fine, yeah, I’ll go with him. We can be roommates. Oh, hey, can I be a Klingon? Fiona: Wow, this is a tricky one. How...

More Random Songs Attached To Random Characters …

This has been a sucky year, and so, I thought I’d distract myself with more of this nonsense. As always, I hit shuffle on the iPod, and try to attach them to my characters. All instrumental tracks are skipped, because those could arguably go to everyone. ** Future of The Left, A Guide To Men – Oh, this is a Holden song. From using “civilized people” as an insult, and repeating the phrase “this is a song about total war”, this is all about someone’s probably doomed war against conformity and society in general. That’s Holden to a T. (And there’s this great bizarre video, which only hints at how honestly bizarre the thing the footage is taken from must be.) Sisters of Mercy, Dominion – Ah, this little...

A Story of the Infected Universe – Pride, Part 2

Considering all the awfulness that has happened since I wrote the first part of this story, I just wanted to write something nice. So that’s all this is. Something nice. ** Weirdly enough, Roan thought he could get into this, especially if a mosh pit formed. He was hoping maybe he could create one if nothing else. He ended up talking to some guys with Mohawks and band t-shirts, and they discussed music for a bit, especially the local scene. They were all despairing the upswing in twee bands, and were probably too down to start a mosh pit. Also, the music playing right now was dance music, as Holden had said, and it was impossible to mosh to that. Roan enjoyed this, until he realized he was at least ten years older than these guys, and he got depressed....

In time for Pride month – A Story From The Infected Universe: Pride

Consider this a “lost” chapter of the Infected Holiday Special – this isn’t technically a holiday. But it’s enough of an occasion that it’s worth mentioning. Roan’s first trip to a Pride Parade. Whether he likes it or not. ** Roan couldn’t believe what he had been reduced to. “I am not doing this,” he insisted, for what felt like the hundredth time. Dylan sighed, and opened his car door. “You are. Now get out.” With a dramatic groan, Roan got out of the car. They were in a parking garage, ground level, so it wasn’t a huge walk from there to the street. There were steady streams of people moving down the sidewalk, and Roan started popping peppermints to combat the overwhelming scent of so many people. He could...

Rainbow Snippet – From Infected: Holden #2 (WIP)

I don’t actually know what the title of this one is going to be, as I haven’t officially titled it yet. (Titles are the hardest thing for me.) But here’s a preview. ** Holden scoffed, mainly at his holier than thou tone. “You are aware that the only two people in the world who give a shit that he’s dead are in this room? We’re it. Burn may have been street, but he was a bottom feeder, and you’re not gonna find a lot of people mourning him. There’s probably already a line forming to take his place. “ Kevin’s dark glare continued, but he looked away after a moment, and ran a hand over his face, the only acknowledgement from Kevin that Holden was correct. *** Read more Rainbow snippets here: Rainbow Snippets on Facebook ...
