Ok, I had to pull a goatse to poo poo this poo poo of lovely proportions, but here it is, 950 words if you take out the hyphens.

Focus Group
The fetid smell is too much for the oxygen scrubbers. I've given up cleaning the entertainment module, never mind how long ago because the vacuum above doesn't change. The cold void is the nail I hang my hat on, the backbone of lunar life. I stare out (because there is no up) and see things happening on a scale of time that obliterates me from the picture the way that our macro scale obliterates atoms.


I stand over them for hours each waking cycle, watch how they wither into sacks of atrophied muscle on bone. Even the PodCorp people plugged in eventually. Nearly forty adults plugged in for twenty-four hours a day, frolicking in visions of a perfect earth even as the planet and their bodies are both dying. I do not know why I am awake.


One of the PodCorp shills died today. His enviropod red lined and hell, I'm no doctor. Looked to me like he just stopped breathing and didn't start again. His name was 'Steve.' I want to suit up and go out to the lip of the crater and whisper it into the perpetual night, but I just can't bring myself to do it because 'Steve' just doesn't cut it as a name you utter reverently into the blackness of space.


I used up the last of the hygienic-grade water today (tonight?). In a few cycles, I'll be using disposal-grade. I had wiped steam off of the mirror, noticed the whorl of a fingerprint on the glass. This gives me an idea.


Steve rides again. I'm holding his severed hand, trying to figure out which finger his computer access is imprinted to. There is a trick to it, a certain rolling motion across the scanner that is hard to do with the severed hand of a corpse. There's a chime when I finally get it (the ring finger of all things), and the interface springs to life with administrative options that I've never seen before. Protocols to alter the day/night cycle, life support, average water temperature and even our food's nutritional content, among other more opaque functions.
There are unread communications from the earth office. Months of them, if you're going by earth standards. Has it been that long?


I've been sitting in my chair contemplating my situation. The day/night settings, which are supposed to cycle over the duration of one earth day, seem to pass in moments. Dark. Light. Dark. Mining had been put "on hold," we were told. Problems with the extractors. Then it was delayed due to a territory dispute between lunar mining corps. Then the metal yields were lower than predicted. Excuses that sounded reasonable at the time had been spoonfed to the PodCorp staff and dispensed to us with no hesitation.
There wasn't even a subfolder for mining yields. No readings on the moon dust. No topographical data.
Take advantage of the down time, the techs had said. We had been encouraged to use the immersion units, the enviropods, to keep our minds off of things. Keep us from missing earth too much, turning into space cases.
What pisses me off is that nothing seemed fishy. Not a thing. We exchanged high fives and plugged in with all the enthusiasm of little kids getting to play a new console before the release date. We were on the payroll either way, so what harm was there in passing the bleak lunar days inside a shared illusion?


I had to hack off another hand, this time some communications techie. It took a cycle of rumination on the ethics of maiming a living dead man, but what I found using his clearance makes it a moot point.
A while ago, months in earth time, communication with PodCorp headquarters stopped. It didn't make sense for PodCorp to cut their little focus group loose with all this experimental tech, but Steve's inbox didn't have any answers. I had to go deeper. The techie's login engendered a whole mess of controls, including the enviropods themselves and the communications satellite. Urgent communiquťs overrode the display, desperate instructions from HQ to modify the satellite's orbit. The date stamp meant nothing to me, but verifying it against the enviropods' data, I found the messages had come some time after the Podcorp staff had plugged in with the rest of us.
Decaying orbit, they said. Collision danger. Gravitational anomalies in surface composition. A grave likelihood, they said, that the crash landing would be close enough to disrupt the colony's structural integrity if the satellite's orbit wasn't stabilized.


For the first time I wonder why they haven't come for us. I look out at earth, wonder if she is as dead and silent as she looks from luna. I notice the satellite now, and its spiral orbit reminds me of a wolf circling in on prey. I watch the emaciated colonists in their delusional slumber and wonder if their visions of old earth are all that remain of life on the blue green dot.


Too late for the last-minute reprieve. The least I can do is go out on my terms. I take a deep breath, open the airlock, step out into nothing and scream silence.

Now, in the quantum moment before the closure, when all become one. One moment left. One point of space and time. I know who you are.

You are destiny.


Leave in fear

"Grimy."

"And the other one?"

"Clean."

"Switch out both of them Thea, we can't afford to leave anything half-assed."

Of course we can't. Of all the things which can go wrong, bad screws on the water fountain will make the whole place collapse.

"This thing will probably last longer than both of us."

"Just do it. Do as I say."

So I do as Trey says, because I have nothing better to do. He looks at me like I'm an idiot. Of course I'm supposed to switch out the screws on the water fountain. Duh.

"I'm heading out," he says, "Take care of the kitchen while I check the rover."

The airlock fogs up after the door closes. I check the kitchen, find a dozen grimy screws and ignore them. He won't check. After a few minutes I can see sparks in a porthole, almost floating in low gravity. I head to the communications module, certain he won't return for at least an hour. Everything in here is spotless, every screw perfect. I sit down and log on.

"Attached here are the full specifications of Moonbase-AF59. You'll know exactly when to strike."

My fingers leave the keyboard for a moment, and I sit and stare at the words, not sure of myself.

"Jonathan, the plans for the base are attached. You'll know exactly when to strike."

I attach the plans, half a gigabyte plain text; it's going to be a long letter.

"I've only got about five hundred words, just for you. It's all I can afford. I would have written you a shorter letter, but I did not have time. This is a last-minute thing. I could also have avoided typing the previous sentences and filled the page with sweet words, but you know that's not me.

I can't give you anything now. The plans are for the cause, and that's it, they are not for just you. The only thing I can give you is me, through this letter, and this is me, rambling on. I could have a hundred million words, and I'd never be able to say how much I love you. Iíd need you right beside me for that, but thatís not going to happen.

I won't tell you what to do either, no plans for the rest of your life, or instructions on how to take care of Alita. No advice or orders. I trust you. Just let her know who I am, who I was.

Every word here is who I am, and who I want to be remembered as. I fought, I cared, I loved. I hope Alita will have a better universe when she's my age. If I have one single instruction, it is this: Show this letter to her when she's old enough. Maybe she'll understand who I was.

Back in Arizona, when me and dad made the trip out to the desert, to hunt, I remember one thing clearer than anything else. He'd explain to me how to clean my rifle, in that low deep voice as the sun rose behind him. I remember he'd have his eyes on the rifle, but I felt like he was always watching me, watching over me. You remind me of him when you look at Alita.

I don't know what they'll say about me in the news. It won't be pretty; traitor, suicide. As long as I know that you know the truth, I don't care. So close to the end, I realize it's hard to care about the cause. It's you I care about; it's your memory of me that's important. You'll know how I died, and you can tell the others.

I guess you ought to tell the troops something, something directly from the boss. Tell them this:

When AF59 falls, the floodgates will open. In their arrogance, the System failed to see their weakest link, and that will be their end. This is the door to heaven, ride in and tear down the saints. Brothers and sisters, we are Godkillers, and nothing can stand in our way.

Yeah I know, its poo poo. It'll rile people up good enough though.

Don't let them forget me, not anyone. I'll see you at the end of the universe."

I encrypt and send, and at the moment the progress bar hits home, I wipe the entire system. I should expect Trey back at any moment. I wonder if I should kill him, but I realize if the panicked calls about compromised security and traitors get out on the web, it will be excellent for morale. No, I'll leave him alone as the whole place falls apart around him. I hope he'll live. Even though he won't see them from the moon, I imagine him standing there, watching desperately as ship after ship passes above him. I've got a few minutes left, I can allow myself to hate.

I laugh as I realize he missed one screw. Grimy. I remove it, and insert a clean one in place. I smile and shake my head. The airlock hiss makes the knot in my stomach painful, complete torture, and I grip the pistol far too hard. I'm a little girl again, looking at a dead cougar moments after it fell. It's not the footsteps which get me; it's the pause as he sees the entire communications array is dead.

"Thea, what-"

I want to enjoy the fear in his face as I say "Godkillers," but I can't. Everything hurts, there's no feeling of victory or joy at all. I just wish I could be back on Earth, holding Alita as we watch the sunrise. I pull the trigger, leaving the universe in fear.

I considered marking in moods, shades of green or Olympic events, but decided it wouldnít properly express my bile. So, out of 10. Scores are low because Iím applying a -10 point penalty to everyone who didnít do a story in the style of Italo Calvino or Stanislaw Lem. Which is loving everyone, jesus people

Areyoucontagious: Perfidy

Thereís an awesome story to be written about jealousy driven murder in the airless expanse of space, but this isnít it. Not enough juice, not enough precision. But it could be worse. And some points for being quick. -6/10

Wrageowrapper: Master Bataar

Okay what the Christ. This is muddled stupid goony shitwriting of the highest order and that is why it wins the fail rally. 1 point forÖ actually no. No points for anything. -10/10

Zack_Gochuck: Moonotopia

Thereís a few good creepy guy observationals in this pile of kack. But it needs a good kicking and a reshuffle before it can live up to its slim promise. Or maybe to be burnt to the ground and the ashes salted. Yes, letís go for that. -9/10

Kangaroojunk: Suicide for Josephine

Decent hard-science fiction weirdness, smothered in a smoosh of terrible purple prose. -6/10

areyoucontagious: Perfidy: epilogue

The part of this that cracked me up is actually the grade school physics lesson in the fourth paragraph. That poo pooís gold. -4/10

Seldom Posts: New World

This has some potential, but needs a hacking to stop the softly singing and the words falling quietly. It feels like your character doesnít really care so why should we? But space commies is a great trope and this gets a lot of things right. -5/10

Radioactive Bears: Minenow

I liked this. As much for how little background it gives to the horror as any of the images. Plus, you stepped up to a total stinkyhole of a prompt when no one else would, so respect for that. -4/10

Bad Seafood: Last One Out, Hit the Lights

Thereís a lot of writing here, but not much story. Itís nice writing to be sure, but youíre jumpiní around in time and space and speculatiní and emotifyiní and itís not really convincing me. Well done fitting in the second most fucky prompt of the round though. -5/10

As Nero Danced: Tourists

Good crazy energy and I like the detail you put into your mentalist janitor. But the hard left turn into wacky alien space fantasy doesnít fit the story or the main prompt so points must get deducted. They must. Itís their thing, you understand. -6/10

Chairchucker: Moonmen

This one suffers from not having a protagonist. Always have a protagonist, unless youíre awesome. Are you awesome? No, youíre decent. -6/10

Jonked: Mad Dog on the Moon

You really got into telling us about these dudes talking to each other. And you have lots of words to do it. So many that itís real hard to tell what the storyís about (ecology, I think?). But good detailing of the effects of 1/6 gravity on improvised boozeware. And bonus point for Jesus Jones reference in second line (no actual bonus points awarded) -5/10

Capntastic: Eventual Eden

You stepped right the gently caress up with this one. It has gritty precision. And thatís the kind of thing that gets you points all over the place in this manís judging. It falls down by not having a clear point and lacking on the passion prompt. Still. -4/10 is nothing to be shamed over.

Will Styles: Mighty Seraphim

I donít know what the poo pooís going on in this one but I donít like it! Iím going to guess at 40k fanfiction and award it a generous -8/10

Toanoradian: Funeral for the Rest of the Europan Humankind

I kind of skated over this one first time round. But dammit, it works. And HiddenGeckoís beautiful bastard of a prompt is what did it. Hats off to him, maybe someone take ESBís hat off because of his arms are in traction. I have to take one point off for a bunch of spelling errors and crap because Thunderdome, but this squirted a little WD40 into the rusted dishwasher motor I use for a heart. -1/10

Peel: The Europa Sea

This hits my old-school buttons, and reads excellently like something in one of those crappy little 50ís sci-fi magazines for 991 words. But it falls on the last stretch and the other stories point at it and laugh. That last line Ė a cheese slice too far. And why do you need two moons? Thatís just greedy. -4/10

Noah: Moon Beez

The first one was better. -6/10

Sitting Here: Focus Group

On first reading I loved the poo poo out of this, the environmental details, the severed-limb humour, the final yell into the void. Trouble is it hooks the fish but doesnít land it. The satellite crashing flimflam just doesnít work as a balance for the weight youíve set up in the rest of the story. Still, a contender for victor and a mark that is so close to a positive integer it can taste it. -2/10

Black Griffon: Leave in fear

See, this right hereís some balls. I was going a little crazy with judge power towards the end, throwing out the flash rules. Black Griffon just sitting there like it ainít no thing. Hits all the prompts, even the ones he doesnít need to, kicks out his story. Thirteen minutes to go, heh. Pours a whiskey, lights a stogie and starts cleaning his nails with the cutter. But like with the previous one, it doesnít quite bring it home. Too many abstract concepts jumbling around in the back end when you should have kept it to the grimy screws and the desert memories. You canít argue with numbers, though. Theyíll just stare at you. Theyíre loving numbers. -2/10

Thunderdome Week V

This week, the judges are myself, Stuporstar, areyoucontagious, and toanoradian. Both temps are lucky I wasn't on the triumvirate for Week IV, as I would have DQ'd them for not using initial capitals or spaces (in areyoucontagious' case) in their handles. Remember, this is Thunderdome.

Fucksticks, this week the prompt is to write a not-awful loving story that involves Gary Numan's goddamn life, motherfucking lifestyle, the themes and structure of his cuntlicking music, or based on one of his cocksucking songs specifically. Except the loving song "Cars." You can't write about that one, at all, because all of you filthy cunts have heard it so it makes it too loving easy. IN ADDITION to but not DIRECTLY RELATED to Gary Numan, you must also write the lovely loving story about being trapped, somewhere. It doesn't have to be a specific physical place, but it can be. It could be a space station, a 50-gallon drum being slowly filled with gasoline, the protagonist's head, another character's head, or whatever stupid bullshit thing you want the character to be trapped in. Have fun writing the goddamn story, you miserable loving bloodrags.

Word count is ~1000. Don't push it.

Deadline for entry is Thursday, 6 2100 EST SEP 2012. Deadline for submissions is Saturday, 8 2100 EST SEP 2012.

I have spoken.

Time counts and keeps countin', and we knows now finding the trick of what's been and lost ain't no easy ride. But that's our trek, we gotta' travel it. And there ain't nobody knows where it's gonna' lead.

Contestants:
sebmojo - "Halo"
SurreptitiousMuffin - "The Dream Police"
Black Griffon - "Complex"
budgieinspector - "Are 'Friends' Electric?"
Wrageowrapper - "We Are Glass"
Jonked - "Music for Chameleons"

Dr. Kloctopussy - "My Shadow in Vain"

Just to clarify, you don't have to write about Gary Numan being trapped somewhere. Goddamnit, Martello, learn how to construct a damned sentence. We want you to use a Gary Numan song as inspiration, taking a single lyric as a prompt, using the rhythm in one of his songs for your prose, or whatever. Whatever you do, the influence has to show. However, don't just copy a whole song's lyrics, because I'm pretty sure that's plagiarism.

Using "Cars" is an automatic DQ. In fact, I'd rather you used an album before the The Pleasure Principle. Anything he did with Tubeway Army is acceptable.

You don't know his stuff, look him up on YouTube. You don't like his stuff, tough.
