Locus of Control

Kyler, a well-respected and charismatic scientist, always found time to stop and smell the roses life presented. A reserved boxer like Brice would much rather step over the roses while waiting for his chance at the championships. When mysterious circumstances released the Locus virus, a zombie-like infection with no cure, they quickly lived up to their name. The victims of this virus are harshly mutated, and will rapidly consume whatever they can, including their once fellow man.

For the survivors, food is limited, and friends are fairweather at best. The two men meet by chance on a rooftop where Brice’s painful history leaves them immediately at odds. His reserved nature only feeds his fear of betrayal as Kyler’s positivity, generosity, and desire for companionship become more than a chivalrous jest. Despite rising tensions, fate forces them together, and a spark is born.

A spark, however, is a tender and fragile thing. In a lawless world, heartless survivors who harbor selfish desires can crush a spark, and a chance at true love could be lost forever in a monster-infested apocalypse.

Working with his labmate Mel, Kyler must find a way to break the genetic code that keeps them locked away. Can Kyler break the deadly code that could save what little is left of humanity?

Seven years later, his hard work finally paid off.

He and his squadmates are tasked to go to the badlands on a mission to the eastern continent to recover secret documents from a rogue faction of spies. The information is said to contain information on the Flara, a group of shady billionaires who are slowly buying up every corporation they can get their hands on, as well as the weakness of the Cantorians, an evil group of seemingly immortal creatures with powers beyond the human scope.

Not all is as it seems however, as these documents are ordered to be recovered or destroyed. Can Thomas uncover the evil plot that threatens to claim not just the stock market, but the entire world?

Which comes first, love or duty? In Jason’s case, he is forced to choose between working for the tribe that has raised him, or loving the only person who has ever cared for him. Sage, next to work for the tribe on his eighteenth birthday, has no desire to do so. After a childhood accident where Jason saved him from a Gagkut in the badlands, he hopelessly falls in love with the young man and has tried to claim him ever since.

The tribe, however, needs medicine that prevents them from the ever creeping sickness that turns them into the monstrous Gagkuts. The only way to acquire this medicine they so desperately need is to bring the pregnant woman to the center-lands, a place filled with powerful magicians, and alchemists who live in the lap of luxury. The mothers to be, are mysteriously accepted into the city and are taken care of until they give birth. After testing the child’s magical aptitude, the mothers are sent back with any reject, and a supply of medicine to take home to their tribe. Will duty suppress the love these two possess, or will their affections for each other supersede the needs of the tribe, potentially damning the village?

Writing music isn’t as easy as you would think. To Jackson however, It’s easier than eating, sleeping, or desperately fawning over the love of his life. Being in love with the guy who eats, sleeps, and breaths for his coffee shop job comes with its own problems however. Spending time with his dreamy coffee shop barista always seems to boil down to a simple coffee run.

When coffee enthusiast Randy thinks of Jackson however, he thinks of the man who helped nurture him from the brink of death. The two had always been close, but to Randy they were never closer than just friends. Can these friends get past their blind spots for one another for a chance at true love? Or will their lives, careers, and ex-lovers make sure they never get the chance?
