Speed Demon

Written by A Random Day

The first rule of witches — they're all bitches.

Rukmini "the Rookie" Mahakali is the Chicago Specter's beating heart, a veritable wraith who injects herself with dead demon to wreak havoc across the criminal underworld. Her secret is her magic heart, stolen out of her ex-girlfriend's chest during a lovers' quarrel.

So when the Rookie's ex steals into her new dimension to take it back, pumping blood through her body becomes the least of her worries.

Up 'n' Coming

The Breach Goes On: Bury the Survivors

On 8 September 2002, all heaven and hell breaks loose at Site-43. The world's largest anomalous waste processing plant goes critical, and the fabric of time and space is forever bent backward around it. There will never be another 6:21 PM to 6:27 PM on 8 September at Site-43 again.

Hopefully they'll have it sorted out before they need to start saving the world.

Wake Up Starshine

Following his assignment to SCP-6103, something changed. No one was entirely sure what it was or what sparked it, but something about Agent Sias was different. He was quieter, more reserved- not the same gregarious man the site had come to expect.

How do you pull memories out of someone who cannot or will not share them?
