Armas com nome

— Isso é uma perda de tempo, senhor — Alertei ao Madeira.

A superintendência nos fez levar todas as armas apreendidas para um depósito e destruir todas com o rolo compressor. Procedimento de praxe, mas dessa vez até as armas de nós, policiais, entraram na pilha de metal escura necrosando em meio a outros pedaços já indistintos de ferro. Fiquei observando o

Ainda não

Um dia, terminei uma apresentação em um bar para quem está começando no standup. A plateia estava fria, o timing das piadas ruim e as referências não os empolgou. Nada pior do que perceber que, durante uma piada que ainda não se terminou de contar, não funcionou. Enfim, uma daquelas noites que confirmava tudo que a ansiedade pré-show insinuava.

Eu dera uma entre

Em busca da morte

Um homem imortal é um caixeiro-viajante. Vai passar toda a sua existência fugindo de um mundo que o teme. Quando meu segredo é descoberto pelas pessoas muita inquietação se instala nos lugares em que tento em instalar. O poder de regeneração de minhas células é fora do comum, mas mesmo assim adquiro os nutrientes necessários para isso através de alimentos c

Dinheiro é tempo

Eu estava preso havia tanto tempo naquele prédio comercial, cercado pelas águas do oceano, que meu mundo passou a se restringir àquelas paredes, esquadrias e infiltrações que formavam uma espécie de caverna pós-apocalíptica. Não havia mais instituições, pelo menos não próximas. Bombeiros, forças armadas, nada para nos salvar daquele purgatório de concreto. T

O dia que o mundo perdeu gravidade

Os cientistas nos avisaram que este dia chegaria. Não sabiam por quanto tempo, só sabiam que uma raríssima convergência de fatores, envolvendo a rotação de nosso planeta e um específico e sutil deslocamento da órbita do sol causavam tal fenômeno. Cientistas aquecimentistas foram hostilizados nas redes sociais, alguns tiveram de fugir de sua

No meio da Idade Média

Sir Mikael, o medíocre.

Era o que se lia no crachá falso que a equipe do laboratório, na nave espacial, preparou como piada interna. O cronograma não previa viagens à Idade Média, e parte da ironia residia aí.

O corpo humano, claro, não resistiria a uma viagem no tempo porque esta teria que ser feita na velocidade da luz. A resposta, então, seria

Unaware

[WP] The apocalypse has continued for years now, but you've never noticed.

Bob was playing xbox and eating pizza. There were very few people on servers these days for some reason, and most of them were noobs, but it just made it extra fun to crush their teams.

The doorbell rang. Finally, he thought. He opened the door and a drone dropped a package of chocolate, energy drinks, and more pizza to the door. The drone was smoking and covered in splotches of red paint, but he didn't make much of it, they rarely came on time these days, and were often broken. He swiped his credit card and went back to his game.

Current setting: Very Hard

I broke my fixation on the woefully empty bottle of beer to glance down at my phone as it dinged, notifying me about an email. I sighed. Debt collectors and spam. That's all I ever got anymore. At least the latter allowed me the pleasure of pressing the fun little trashcan icon.

Would you like to change..., the preview of the subject read.

Tall Tale

Pa has always sat on the dock, staring hard out at the wild water beyond the bay. For as long as I can remember he’s sat there in that same spot every day, no matter the weather; no matter his health.

When a Dog Turns

“Jo?” I heard him call my name but I couldn’t make myself respond. “Jo, are you out here?” I knew I should say something, knew he was worrying because he couldn’t find me. The words formed in my mind, but somehow I forgot what to do after that. Then I looked to my left, and I could see him. The body that was the reason I was in this mess. The
