About #SciFiAugust

Every August I like to create as many sci fi images as I can, write as much sci fi flash fiction as I can, and draw as much sci fi art as I can. But I don't like doing this alone. If, during this month of August you create anything sci fi in nature (whether it be in imagery, poetry, short story, long story, flash fiction, clay or other modeling, sculpture, 3D printing, art, music, etc), then use the hashtag #SciFiAugust. Tag me +Jacob Dix, and tag the page +Sci Fi August. I'll share it so everyone participating can join in.

The black void of space. In a box.

SyFy
Night Moves

Shadow stalkers
Tracing lines charred and cold
Sliding past debris abandoned
Through silent corridors they slip
A shaft open and unguarded
The moment made apparent
One nods to the others
Making a chain they link form
One by one disappearing over the edge
Brilliance fills the void
Stalking as
Night hides under the bed
In a box

The Fifth Age 31

The Key

Larcanth was in disarray and turmoil after the war. There was no leadership. I returned therefore under the escort of ten dragon riders and a single fighter ship. It was a solemn experience to return to the sanctum of Nenuan, King of Yinjil. The key, if it opened anything, would be found here. I looked among the tools and boxes, machine parts and rubbish. But it was behind an old drapery hanging on the wall that I discovered it opened but a singular door.

Even the dragon riders marveled at what lay inside. As I opened the grand vault with its unassuming key, and holding up a light to the dark room, I saw for the first time the spines of a thousand books. Rows and rows of them.

I went forward and drew up a book in my hand, flipping through its pages to perhaps examine its quality, only to reawaken from my amazement to reality.

"But I cannot read." I looked up.

The leader of the dragon riders spoke up. "Then we will teach you."

On that day, the library of Nenuan was founded, later becoming the heart of the Lyceum at Larcanth, and I, a water thief, was elected its head. I write even now from my desk, looking out over the place where Galan Spire, it is recorded, once stood so long ago.

About The Fifth Age

The Fifth Age is Part IV of my Fire and Night saga, the first part of which can be found here: http://www.mobilography.net/fire-and-night-mobile-photography-short-story/ with links there to Parts II and III.

I began this series in 2013-2014, and have added a chapter each year. Each chapter of the story, both in images and words, was written on my phone during SciFi August. The Fifth Age takes place at the end of the great rebellion of the spheres, which spanned over 4000 years. It is not necessary to read the previous three parts to understand the story, but it is recommended in order to enjoy it more fully.

The Fifth Age 30

The Fourth Kingdom

Nenuan was right. We know now that Kulani's attack was one of desperation. So many lives to maintain power! The betrayer had lost too much and too many in her last fight against the baron. She was in some ways forced to replace the structure of power, work and servitude that she so swiftly lost. Her soldiers and her slaves began a mutiny during the assault on Yinjil, when she was most distracted. Some say the baron had a hand in the rebellion, perhaps to force her back into his arms. Whatever the case, there is rumor that she abandoned the battle cruiser and rejoined him, whether out of lust or necessity or both we do not know.

It is and ever has been. Evil is its own undoing, and in the crash and the wake, the virtuous turn to good what once was in the clutches of moral entropy. Because we have power to do so.

The Fourth Kingdom, this fortress in space, is a title no longer used. We do not have kingdoms. The Moltec are one, as we were in the first age. It is the fifth age, the age of liberation.

Word has reached the Moltec slaves and mercenaries of other worlds. Some of our people have made their way home, bringing with them the beginnings of a knowledge of the stars.

The Fifth Age 29

Signal

Having delivered the body of Nenuan the king to the bounds of the city once more, and having helped in some meager way to warn Yinjil of imminent attack, they welcomed me once again. I was again a citizen. When the war was over, Etesh and Keishan gathered in the Hall of Yinjil to deliberate over the peace between them. Keishan, when she perceived her father's key around my neck, welcomed me to join them and sit at the table with them in these deliberations.

"Fate has dealt you a fortunate role of it," Etesh spoke. "Ishtala, while you desire to go to Larcanth again with that key, it can wait some days. Keishan, you will perhaps permit our talks to continue in a day as well, for I have received word of something extraordinary.

"As you now know, the ship that crashed in the desert allowed me to hear of the impending assault, and Ishtala and your great uncle the king made our aid to you possible. The device still functions and I have received a signal through it. The ship that orbits our world, which has for so long been used to stage Larcanthine raids, is now in the hands of those loyal to the flag of Etela. Tomorrow a ship will arrive. I do not suspect treachery and I recommend we make a cautious but prepared welcome. My kingdom and its armies are at your command."

Red sun humans turned human+
"A letter to whoever finds this."
"I’ve witnessed many discoveries in my life, but never as extraordinary as what I’ve witnessed today"

Hi, my name is Dr. Norman Atreyu, but I am going by the name of D.N.A. from here on out. I will explain that later. I was the leading gene mutations doctor at the O.R.G.A.M.I. Labs before I skipped town. You won't be able to find me, trust me, I made sure of that. I'm writing this letter because I made a huge mistake.

The last months working in my lab, I have been working on a project that was to help fix global warming and the climate changing crisis. Surprisingly I was gaining all sorts of financial backing from the federal government. However, I later found out it was for malicious reasons.

The project we were working on would alter the suns energy to heal the earth. In our tests, we found that it mutated some human's DNA into having special abilities when exposed to the new radiation. I only found this out when the _"Red Sun"__ scorched the sky. It was too late. On my way out, I witnessed humans with abilities I thought to be unreal. I’ve witnessed many discoveries in my life, but never as extraordinary as what I’ve witnessed today.

Now I am getting out of dodge for what is coming. If you have received this message and you are one of the Humans+, you are going to be hunted so I suggest that you keep a low profile and stay safe. I will be looking for a cure.

God speed,
D.N.A.

The Fifth Age 28

New Blood

This was a battle like no other. There were but three small nations on our fragile world, and we now faced an enemy from the black of space while we were still fighting amongst ourselves. Etesh and the Karakon fought hard, and seeing that they had come to Yinjil's aid, the city too fought hard.

At this time, the false king had many intrigues. Through his oppressive rule he gained many an enemy. And it was under these circumstances, with Etesh fighting for the fate of the city, that his enemies made call upon him. He ran as a coward from his duties, and hid in the secret tunnels beneath the high royal towers.

Nenuan had a young grand-niece who, unbeknownst to the false king, worked as a servant girl in the king's court. During the battle, she fought mightily, and routed a squad of Larcanthine soldiers as they pushed through the upper gates. But her forces were outnumbered, and were forced to withdraw. It was suggested that they retreat up towards the king's palace residence.

She knew the secret tunnels, and as they would be easier to defend, she took to them. There, in hiding, she and her women and men found the false king cowering in the dark with his stockpiles of water and wealth. "On your feet, moltica!"

He stood and stared at them with fear. Then he turned and ran up the tunnels and out into the light of day, into the courtyard and the place where Karakon had been so many years chained. Realizing he had nowhere to go, he faced them, pulled a dagger and plunged it into his heart, releasing us from his rule.

Nenuan's great-niece, Keishan she is called, wasted no time with him but went directly to where his banner waved in the wind. She pulled it down, now in the heat of battle, and the soldiers brought her the flag of Etela. She raised it high and sounded the dragon horn.

When the people saw the flag of their ancestor, they fought on again against the forces of Kulani with renewed strength. Even a number of the ranks of Larcanth's army turned and joined us, as did three fighters who attacked their own. So loyal were they to our people.
