The Stone Lady

Somewhere below Dublin City, deep in the vaults GX keeps a creature of living stone.

A statue of a woman.
Her long, unkempt hair expertly carved, her wild expression deeply threatening.

In the past whenever this statue went unobserved it would move, lightning fast and silent as the forming dew.

It always moved towards the nearest human being, and when it reached them the individual would be found with the statues hand driven through their chest, just where their heart had been until a stone fist was driven through it.

All of this is in past tense of course, GX entombed the creature in concrete up to its neck. 
Filling the entire room, wall to wall.

It hasn’t moved an inch since, whether people watch it or not.


The Heron King

O’er fen and moor and city streets,
Through fields and forests dark.
Through dreams and poems and rhythmic beats
The Heron King, he walks.

‘Cross words on page and word of mouth,
In lakes and caverns deep.
Through mind and thought and constant doubt
The Heron King, he walks.

Between your eyes, between your ears,
Beneath your very scalp.
Through all your waking, sleeping fears
The Heron King, he walks.

Beneath your breast, inside your heart,
Inside your beating chest.
In every joy that you take part
The Heron King, he walks.

In all that’s right in all that’s wrong,
and all that’s in between.
Through every story, every song,
The Heron King, he walks.


Personal Relative Calendars

The Time Regulation Agency has ordered the installation of Personal Relative Calendars into the operating system of all Time Travel Units.

The PRC software keeps track of time relative to when the operator begins travelling in time. So the Time Machine of an operator who began time travelling in 2233 and traveled for ten years would register PRC date in 2243.

The PRC software also keeps track of the Operator’s position in the Universal Time Frame and displays both dates together.

So if our Time Traveler who ended their ten year journey in 2043 PRC ended up in the year 10876 UTF both dates would be displayed side by side.

This is vital for keeping track of the origin point and life cycle of all Time Travel Unit operators and helps to regulate illegal immortality.
