Destiny Awaits – Part 6

The massive green orb of Venus came closer and closer into view. It’s green forests materializing in Argyn’s pupils. He loved thinking of Venus as a child.

Stellar Conjunction

–Part One– Before your worlds there were others. Before your star there were others. Your world and star once belonged to them, before they were scattered and reformed in a different place and a different time. Like moths to flames, stars brought them to life but in a single brilliant flash their homeworlds were destroyed, […]

Chance Encounter

The ship is an ancient rustbucket, and it looks as though it has been here since time immemorial. It was probably a fighter once upon a time, but it is difficult to tell. Time has worn its identity away, and the foliage has overgrown it so that it is little more than scraps of sheet […]

Destiny Awaits – part 1

Captain felt more pride in this moment than he had in his whole life. More than marrying his wife, more than when the immense power of The Traveler had been vested in him by the Forger, and more proud than the day his boy had been brought into this world. For on this day, his […]

*Disclaimer. I do not own Destiny. That would be Bungie* — Merric lumbered down the crowded street, trying not to knock over any of the passing crowd bustling around him.
