Re: First Lines

Edge’s plan to get the gun-toting idiot out of his cab was irrational, which was not like him. In the past, he’d been known for methodical efficiency. But this situation required decisive action. Edge could do that too, when necessary.

Re: First Lines

The little grey alien had turned a brilliant shade of green. I knew it was a mistake to judge alien physiology by human standards, but I couldn't help thinking it was a natural cross-species response to Jazz and her...unique piloting skills.

Re: First Lines

Is it wrong to love an android? I'll figure it out after the honeymoon.

Re: First Lines

If it was against the law to invite friends on an oceanic trip, then I was guilty. If it was against the law to use my own private watercraft, then I was guilty. And if it was against the law to take over a trillion dollars from the federal government and just hand it over to some communist dictator, well, then I suppose I was guilty of that too.


But I am not a bad man.

Re: First Lines

“She’s on her way,” the old man murmurs to himself as he rocks gently in his chair, “death that is.”

Beginning of my WIP Untitled thus far.

Re: First Lines

The wicked Joker left Batman with a face full of black berry pie, his caped partner named Robin was cut short as he began his typical style of exclamation.

"Ho.."

"Don't, Robin. Your catch phrases, are beginning to annoy me. Go sit in the Batmobile. I'm going to get cleaned up. Don't stare at me, go sit in the Batmobile!"

As the rope hoisted me into the air by my heels, I knew that it was Wednesday....it had to be.

Re: First Lines

They were digging an irrigation ditch alongside the olive field when Ranu’s boy Keshi came rabbiting over the hill, shouting.

Re: First Lines

When I woke up that morning to discover that my bed had somehow changed its place in my room during the night, I knew something was going to happen.

Re: First Lines

I told Margaret that monsters did not bother me. But there was no way I would do anything that involved traipsing through a sewer in my Sunday clothes.

Re: First Lines

Something told me it was going to be a very interesting day. Perhaps it was the email from the Supreme Galactic Ruler. Perhaps not.

Re: First Lines

Once upon a time, long long ago, in a galaxy far far away, a great adventure almost took place...

Re: First Lines

...But when I looked at the email, it read only, You left your trousers at the party. They can be picked them up at The Galactic Lost and Found.

Re: First Lines

I knew this was going to be a strange voyage, I should never have allowed my new first mate to hire the crew. We had already set sail when I discovered during roll call that the crew comprised of two worthy seamen and fifteen cabin boys.
