Into the Nest

The quiet students and professors of Aquila III were outraged and afraid after the attempted assassination of Dr. Westbridge.  He, and the medical doctors, believed his survival hinged on the curtain obstructing the assassins vision and the intervention of Itsy.  However, that was only the beginning of their troubles.

 The normally peaceful island had...

Hi Everyone, i'm sorry i've been away for so long. Second Life got much harder to use and create stuff since i started using mesh and scripting things, and Linden Lab took years to introduce tools that on the user side seem very insignificant features.

The back of Doctor Falcon’s neck errupted outwards during her brief final fight with the cloud angel.  Quinn couldn’t help but admire the horrific damage that had been her deathstroke. The Professor examined the hole in her back with awe despite sweating profussely in this sweltering forge.  He dwelled instead on the power that was contained in a form smaller than his own.  A child shredded, melted, and exposed the metal...

Waves buffeted the island rocks, sending sea spray into the air beside Aquila III.  The spray landed on beaches where it kept vegetation from growing, but further inland trees flourished from years of human absence.  From his vantage point high atop the station, Dr. Westbridge could see the entire expanse, including an area of foliage covered in...
