  • The Constellation Tournament [written in 2013] [final revisions]
    • The Constellation TournamentEvery 1,000 years, the constellations in the sky battle each other to determine who will hold the distinction of being the center of the universe. This year marks the 7th iteration of the tournament and as most of the 88 constellations gather at the tournament complex to duke it out, some of the constellations have been sealed away for safety’s sake. And yet, quite a few unknown fighters are entering the tournament: hoping to be immortalized in the sky. As the battles become more intense, many questions arise from the spectators. Who will get to control supernovas and black holes? Who will be the new Zodiac signs? Who will win it all and claim the ultimate power of the universe – the power of the Ωmegα Protocol?
