Beholden
by: Abby Coin

An original story about a society living on a distant planet named Prontius. The people that lived there once came from earth to occupy it, and have lived there for centuries. However, some people had chosen to stay on earth and still continue living there.

Years later, many people on Prontius decided that they wanted to go back to earth, knowing that some had stayed and continue residing there. Civil war broke out between the people who wanted to continue living on Prontius and the ones who wanted to go back to earth. The side that wished to continue living on Prontius won, and even though centuries have passed since the civil war, the politics are still complex and all space crafts are banned from leaving the planet.

The main character is a son of the leader of the main nation on Prontius. Both he and his lower class friend believe in going back to earth, despite the fact his parents enforce the idea of staying on Prontius. The characters had made a detailed plan to escape, however only one of them could go. The story takes place five years after she made the escape.

Mother
by: Laura Duke

On a journey through the ever-growing Multiverse, we come to a world where women, rather than having children, give birth to new universes. This woman is in the process of creating a universe, which is budding from her third eye. My inspiration comes from the various theories of a multiverse, especially the idea that there are parallel universes. In the background, the blackness represents the absence of anything, or nothingness. Since the third eye is an energy center, or chakra, it’s symbolic of the life source that maintains the existence of the universe. Her third eye contains a black hole that serves as the entrance to a wormhole to the new universe being created, while the exit at the other end is a “white hole”. Unlike humans, this race is without physical and mental boundaries, which gives them godlike abilities.
