Hey folks, welcome to my writing blog. This is where I'll collect my writings to share with the internet. Hopefully you'll find something here to entertain you. I'm in the process of moving. All new content will be found on my new blog at . Hugoverse : I have most of my universe planned out already, and I'm using writing prompts to fill it out while practicing my writing. A side effect of choosing a new prompt every day is that the story will hop around a lot. Timeline  - Lists the stories out in chronological order.  Guidebook  - A spotting book of the Souls in the Hugoverse. Fringes of the Hugoverse - Side stories that help explain how things work. Annexations - Oneshots chosen to be integrated. AlterNet - Stories that mostly take place in the AlterNet: a cross universe virtual Earthsized MMO.  Dirge & Dread  - Weekly(Sunday) adventures of Dirge & Dread.  Underworld - Stories involving the organized criminal underworld of the Hu


I've done a lot of writing over the years, though not much has been shared to the public. That's what this blog is going to be for. I have a few short stories from the past that I will be tweaking and sharing here. There are characters that I liked so much I decided to incorporate them into my universe, in general. The name of my universe is 'Hugoverse', because I can do that. My first book, Aurelio's Sun , will introduce the main universe. Some of the characters from short stories on this page will eventually appear in stories with Soundcrowd. The "important" characters of my universe are mostly based on Lotería cards for different reasons, but they're all special in a way. To start with here's the first character. His name is Vegas . Vegas is the first character I created that felt special to me. I came up with him for a creative writing assignment. I don't remember the specifics, but I'm pretty sure it was something along the lines o

Hugoverse Guidebook

This is where I will start storing information about my Universe to help add some context to my short stories.  Magic: Magic is a natural force present on all Earths, though not all Earths have a population that can tap into it. Once a Soul learns how to tap into magic on one Earth they can tap into the magic from other Earths. Nanos:   Microscopic machines that excel at efficiency. As a result they work together and learn to optimize the tasks they're trained for. On some Earths they allow Zeroes to tap into magic, while on other Earths they evolved to mimic magic.  AlterNet:  A network that allows users from alternate universes to communicate with each other. It is an Earth that is completely dominated by nanos. Earths with the right technology can project their consciousness to that Earth, and the nanos will form an artificial body for their consciousness. This is primarily used for gaming, and has essentially become a giant cross universe MMO. ( AlterNet
