    Master story list

    Since older stories can drop off the radar screen, I decided to post this sticky-thread, so that folks with stories can add them to this "index". Feel free to reply to this thread with the link to your story, accompanied by a brief synopsis of the story-line.

    ATTACK! can be read at:

    There are two main story lines that are intertwined. The first is an autobiographical account of the character, Thomas Duncan, during the period leading up to the attack upon the United States in 2005, and its aftermath through February of 2008. The second is a third person account of local and world events that have a background effect on Thomas Duncan and his community.

    An alliance of foreign countries apparently lead by China, named MABUS, pre-emptively attacks the United States, triggered by a terrorist event for which China is being unjustly blamed. Within the US, an underground movement, called the Network, has formed to monitor and thwart the plans of "The New World Order." Now the network has to deal with the foreign attack as well as corruption and treason within the US Government.

    a deadly plague has wiped out 99% of the world's population and the few survivors must fight for their survival. of course, having an underground city sized bunker couldn't hurt...
    The only rights we have are the ones we're willing to fight for.

    Where my Muse takes me.
    The The Troublemaker is a story that weaves the downfall of the US and the struggles through the eyes of one man. This is written with both a physical and spiritual aspect.

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot...there's gunplay, technology and a love story. So, pull up a chair and hopefully be entertained.

    <strong>Forever After: The Hagan Family Journals</strong> - February 2001
    <strong>Commentary thread</strong>

    This story dates back to when TB2K was still on EZBoard and is close to my earliest work of fiction. It's a pretty much straight forward full-scale nuclear war a la the Cold War between the United States and Russia as seen from the view point of the Hagan family at their home in North/Central Florida and the surrounding community.

    <strong>The Awakening</strong> - A shared story thread - May 2002
    <strong>Commentary thread</strong>

    This is a "come as you are" multi-author invasion story thread by a good many of the TB2K posters of the time. Started out rather vaguely and went all over the place. Some very good writing in this one.

    <strong>We Interrupt This Program...</strong> - July 2002
    <strong>Commentary for story</strong>

    A no-warning asteroid impact story as seen from the view point of the Horne family outside of Gainesville, Florida with coverage of the national and international situations from time of impact to a year later.

    <strong>In the Blink of an Eye</strong> - February 2003 - (as yet unfinished)
    <strong>Commentary for story</strong>

    An Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) attack on the United States and the consequences that follow. As yet unfinished.

    <strong>Fiction: Rioting in Arabia & the oil stops flowing</strong> - May 2004
    <strong>Commentary thread</strong>

    The original post is a fictional time-line of events occurring as the flow of Middle Eastern oil runs out that was written by a non-TB2K writer and posted to the board by one of our energy supply posters Flavius Aetius. The time line appealed to me so I wrote one of my own to go with it and it sort of took off from there as others posted their own contributions.

    Deep Winter January 2005-May 2005

    Commentary thread

    First attempt at fiction. Fictional story of a family struck by a multitude of unfolding natural and human-caused events in Spokane, Washington. Set in the middle of winter, the story chronicles from the storytellers' point-of-view, the immediate and widespread effects of the events going on around him, across the nation, and the world. Part One of....more than one. Second book continuing the storyline will likely follow in the Fall of 2005.

    The story went longer and was much better received than I ever dreamed it might also taught me that 1) writing can be addictive; and 2) readers are demanding (grin).

    You know, I got a lot of story ideas always floating in my head, but this one was never there..I just decided to try and see if I could write a short story, deliberately short, from start to finish.

    I never done it before like that..but this is what came out:

    Pretty nervous..other than a few poems a long time ago, never put anything on the net for someone to read, or sent anything in or anything like that, so please be gentle with the criticism, but honest comments appreciated. ty.

    Old Dominion

    After an oddly subdued nuclear attack on American soil, a chain of events leaves a rural county in western Virginia grasping for a new normal. The military is behaving strangely, the sheriff just wants to keep everything together and there's no telling what Scamp might do without the stabilising influence of cigarettes and Jerry Reed. Told from the perspective of Kate, a married woman living alone on her country place with her three children, who is pulled into the thick of it all by the men in her life.

    Woman for Sale - Cheap

    A deadly biological weapon which targets females runs amok, wreaking global devastation. Women? There are no women, and the few left are often rendered sterile. Never fear, for your government is here to save the day. Now if the remaining fertile women will only cooperate with their local bureaucratic office for Redistribution and Population Efficiency Center for Women, everything will be all right. They will even be allowed to keep their husbands, for the most part. But what of the women who can no longer have children? Well, a woman without working ovaries is pretty much a useless eater. Right?

    Sssarawolf's Stories

    Last one.

    Have Mercy

    Mercy is kidnapped just as the news has announced a meteor will hit the earth, dragging her away from her family, she needs to get back home.

    The Empty Plains

    Thirty years after WWIII Duke and Lottie have worked hard to make a go of their farm. Ten years ago they moved away from the valley fort to be out form under his brother's thumb to have room to grow and make it on their own. The attack happened in the wee hours of the morning and just like that the two of them were on the run. How far would the raiders follow them? Would they kill all the others on the farm or were they already dead?

    Shaken Sari

    Sari could hardly believe this was happening to her. First the death of her beloved husband and now being married of as a second wife to the camp Commander. She finds all isn't kosher in the camp, someone evil is making life very hard and helping the enemy.

    An Unexpected Life

    Chrissie couldn't believe it. After moving her up here and seeming to love and enjoy this life he had picked for them, he left. Nick said he had found himself a new woman, a less frumpy one. "What" She had come to love the farm and needed to make a go of it, somehow.
    Meanwhile on the other side of the world another country is planning for the down fall of the US. They can pin point weather with their new invention and are causing all kinds of death and havoc. Only the mam in charge of the machine is crazy as wooden watch and even his leaders don't know it.

    Ruby's Time Out

    Ruby has tried to make up to her son the death of his father. But as he grew to be older all he did is resent her for it. Now he's gone off on his own vowing to never return. But she goes on hoping one day he will come to his senses. She has makes a living making quilts, soaps, lotions and sells them on the internet.
    One day she readies only when she gets down her country road it ends in huge trees blocking her way out.
    She gets out and walks through the trees but after a third of a mile and seeing the neighbor's house is gone along with the road and in the thinning trees sees nothing but open plains with elk and deer and forests all around her. What happened, where in the world is she?

    Down the Hole

    A large family living in different parts of the country has to find safe places to go to as they hear of impending war and are soon hit with an EMP. It doesn't take long for the two legged rat to come out and begin their take over. How will each member and their families survive? How many will make it home to their parent’s home where they were taught how to be self-sufficient? How many ignored what they learned?

    Seeing the Fire

    Pat and Martin can't believe they have been told in dreams to prepare for things in the world to get even worse than they have already become. No medical, no mail, no stores and ever having to watch out for raiders.
    They have been told others would be joining them and they would be a haven from the world wide disasters and war. It doesn't keep trouble and death from happening to those working their way towards them. Everyone is on foot or horse these days.

    After the Dying Time

    Rose just had to have a look at the people that have come into the valley down below them. She had left without telling a soul and now she has been captured. These raiders consider themselves new age Huns. Would her big mouth and insolent ways (at least to the Huns) get her killed before she can be rescued?

    Gray's Heart: After the Dying Time II

    The story of Rose continues. Life has taken a turn she never thought it would. Is Gray the one for her?
