Bad Ritual

Captain Patton is an accomplished Witch Hunter, despite his unique methods he has garnered for himself a small following. Students have come to watch from him, hearing stories about his victories from their elders. He adopted the class and began teaching them so that he could rest safely, knowing that the next generation of Witch Hunters would be capable of creating a safe and thriving world, one without Witches, and one without mishandled magic.

On this particular day, he finds himself peering into the past of a woman with a deadly secret, one which her children mistakenly uncovered.

Unwelcome Visitor

A whole new world presented itself upon the first moments of the machine’s life. An unfamiliar home surrounded him, and his consciousness clouded, as if parts of his memory were being intentionally blocked off.

As he came to meet Iosef, the master of the household, a dark secret began to unravel before him. One which threatened more than just his simple existence. The sins of his past, he came to understand, would mar the future of humanity forever.

But before he could try to understand his place in the world, he must learn what he truly is, and why he is being kept locked in another man’s basement with a like minded machine across from him, speaking slowly through text.

Each word from her mouth a warning.

Two Today

The rising pressure of becoming a father wore on Marshall, but he promised his wife that he would be strong for her, no matter what.

Come time for their delivery, a chance meeting with a strange woman brought him to his knees as his wife gave birth, and he understood all that fatherhood entailed.

Strange Fruit

Nick would regularly watch his father out in their backyard garden, working on the roses and the tulips, shearing the dead leaves and vines. It was a ritual that his father had been a part of since his mothers death.

In some ways, Nick understood the need for that stability. But when he awoke in the middle of the night to find his father slicing off his own fingertips, he began to question the nature of the quaint garden he had spent days admiring.

He stayed silent about the acts that followed for years, but the time has come for Nick to share what happened that fateful night, and why he moved away from his home.

He left with one long call into the night, hoping that someone would help him understand.

Could a garden heal a broken heart?

Air - The Encouraging Soul

When I was a child, I wanted nothing more than to write and tell stories. I was heavily inspired by my grandfather, a man who had a story for every second and then some more. A man who always knew what to say. In times of fear, he showed me courage. In times of anger, he showed me compassion. In times of joy, he showed me love. when I got older I decided to dedicate what I do to him. I wanted it to be my biggest, most ambitious project. That became this, Alva Tobias + Books.
