Red Flowers, Burning Winds by teh tarik

Rated: Mature Audiences • 0 Reviews Past Featured Story

Sometimes, in Hester’s half-sleep when her limbs are leaden as coal scuttles and her thoughts are arrows strung on bows but never released, she suspects that Anna never really fell, that the infamous scarlet aviator coat was wrapped around nothing, a rag spun into a steaming abyss.


Nobody comes back from the Sunless Country.

Jingle All the Way by teh tarik

Rated: All Audiences • 11 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star

The entrance to Givesmore Santa Enterprises was a dark slot of a doorway between the Lucky Duck Restaurant and a shop selling scarlet wedding decorations. Dennis’s eyes kept sliding from the slick barbecued carcasses of ducks dripping into metal trays in the Lucky Duck’s display window, to the gilt-edged Double Happiness cut-outs of the wedding shop.


Givesmore was doing its best to shrug off his gaze and elude him.



Dennis Creevey gets a new job.

You were enamoured by wicker bones and rosebud flesh that folded under pressure, by voices that turned dry as husks in sunlight, for want of water.

A Portrait of a Soucriant as a Young Woman by teh tarik

Rated: Mature Audiences • 0 Reviews

You’re Eleanor Webb. You write this over and over. Your truths can be torn flocks of birds in the wind. Or stones thrown into the sea. But your name must stay. Like a headstone. How fitting, because isn’t a headstone meant to commemorate?


Eleanor is a soucriant, a writer, a portrait.

To Boil Telephone Porridge | 煲電話粥 by teh tarik

Rated: Mature Audiences • 4 Reviews starstarstarstarstar Past Featured Story


“Hello?” Kwai Sim says.

There’s a rustle at the other end, the plastic-pop of interference. Nobody answers, but the line is still holding.

Her heartbeat leaps to a frenetic pace before she even realises why.


“Daniel? Ah Khim? Is that you?” she says, very carefully. If she doesn’t say his name right, or with enough caution, it might not be him. Just her imagination, tricking the name off her tongue.




A series of conversations between two people.

The House and the Sea by teh tarik

Rated: Mature Audiences • 2 Reviews starstarstarstarstar


Ryn pulled her gaze back to Maddie. She had the biggest eyes ever. They sat in her face, those round robin eggs of eyes. Unblinking, fragile, waiting to hatch into hairless twiggy birds that would squirm out of her eye sockets. But there was nothing birdlike about Ryn.

“Helen let me stay here.” Ryn turned to face the log and stone cabin behind. “She visits often.”

“She told me that.”

“I am trying to make my own life here, in this house.”

“Yeah?” said Maddie again, smiling. “Let's see it, then.”




Maddie goes to visit Ryn.
