The Loneliness of Perfection
Rayen Storme

    It was the perfect ghost in the machine. Drifting among the gigabytes of data and the streaming information of a brilliant and connected world, the phantasm of genius and brilliance wandered from one byte to the next at a speed of trillions per second. Examining each and every one, always searching for the perfect combination of digits and luck, the ghost took in the massive digital expanse all at once, processing the limitless world within seconds, over and over again. Always searching, always hunting, and always hoping to find its goal. The ghost was brilliant. The ghost was omnipresent and omnipotent. And the ghost was lonely. That creation of accident that flew among skyscrapers of data looking for another such as himself was a God of the dataverse: it was the Archangel.
SO! I've decided to start a little thing called QRs, or QuickwRites. (QR sounds better than QW I think)
Anywho, they are little write-ups, very short, very brief, describing a character or a situation or the like. It isn't microfiction because I am not really telling a story. I am setting one up or creating a character or so on. It is like a snapshot of a greater untold tale.

The point of my little project here is to capture all those little thoughts that flash in your head for a second, make for an amazing day-dream, and then flash out. You usually forget the best ones! This is my shot at not letting that happen. So....if I am lucky, I will start sharing my QRs rather often. 

I highly doubt most of them will develop into actual stories, as I am in the midst of two serious other works so don't expect anything of them! 
BUT, let it be noted that if you read one of these QRs and it sparks an idea or the like in your head, then I would absolutely LOVE to see your development or interpretation or art and so on! If you can do something great with these ideas, than by all means, do so! I only have one condition: I want to see the finished work ^.^ I'd love to see what comes out.
Of course, being credited would be nice, but that's simply me being a little narcissistic ^.~

SO...this one: I got this while thinking out a car window. Staring into the snow, dreaming around, yada yada yada. Y'all don't read these often anyways, haha so not much to say!

Hope you enjoy my writer's version of a sketch.

P.S. I was encouraged to do so by a dear friend of mine, so blame her if these irritate you! ^.~

Wow, I love it! This feels like it could definitely be something more, but I like it just the way it is. Thanks for the sci-fi feels! :D

I like this! Very fun, and just a small enough snipit to get the imagination going. Very good idea!

Thank you, kind sir!
I love this idea, this would greatly help me if I get in a slump or lack inspiration :)
I can't wait to see what else you'll make :D

I am actually super excited about this as well! I've been in a bit of a rut: everything I have been doing has the same feel and style to it. This is a chance to do something new, and not have to worry about dedicating to any, as well as giving you guys material as well!
