One of the fun movies of the 80’s, go watch it, again. But, what does that movie have to do with therianthropy (what the heck is therianthropy: its a human that can shape shifting into another animal)—nothing, but thinking about 80s movies and Michael J Fox, you know where I’m going—Teen Wolf.

Micro Fiction #2

Time to Plan
I’m traveling back in time to stop a crime. We’re not suppose to do this, but imagine you knew something, and you could change everything. All your future suffering would be ended with one intervention. I see myself and yell, “Don’t do it!” I watch myself disappear into time again. 

Micro-fiction #1

Sounds of metal squealing, bending, releasing energy into the crunch of bones. Smelling those mechanical fumes, and his blood, reminded me of the slaughterhouse
