Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

I spy with my pterodactyl’s eye…

A bipedal piece of shit.

You may be asking why us pteros and bipeds exist in tandem.  The answer is that my world isn’t Earth as you know it.  Some of our shamans managed to diverge the timelines and create an alternate reality where that bitch-ass meteor never impacted the planet’s surface.  It ain’t all roses; goddamn Humes have been chowing down on magic mushrooms for the last million years, and it’s made them smart as shit through neurogenesis.  They’ve developed shamans of their own, and the wisest among them have come to realize that time, space, and subsequently causality itself are all illusions.

Meaning they’re a lot harder to eat.

I’ve been tracking this particular one for several months.  Kent Wayne’s his name, and he strikes me as one of the duller among them.  Always flexing his tits and smelling his fingers when he thinks no one’s looking.  Constantly wooing the females of his species with his upcurved wiener.  (Can’t believe they fall for that shit).

He’s napping on a vast stretch of yellow-grass savannah, where there’s nowhere to hide.  I’m circling him at a distance, pretending I’m chilling on some thermals.  Due to my preternaturally keen eyesight, I can see him clear as day, while his 20/20 bullshit renders me into a tiny black speck.  When I see his chest rising and falling in rhythmic time, I know he’s asleep.

I signal the rest of my flock with a high-frequency whistle.  We all form into a line that’s organized along his line of sight, so as not to scatter our movement across different axes.  As we approach, I can’t help but snort in glee.  This meal is gonna be fucking epic.

But then, as we start dive-bombing toward him, he reaches into his satchel and withdraws his stone tablet.  Etched upon it is his science fiction epic Echo, which is in possession of reality distortion powers.  Magic flash.

Kent Wayne’s butthole lurches and dilates—like an alien eye that has come nigh to wreak its vengeance upon us all.

“RUN!” I scream to my flock.  “RUN BEFORE IT’S TOO—”

The skies darken, and horrid laughter rumbles up from Kent’s throat.  Gale-force winds jet out from his anus, mauling giant swaths of turf throughout the once-peaceful savannah.  All vegetation is stripped of leaves and greenery.  His Breakup Fart forms into a giant, cyclonic whirl of phantom skulls, all cackling with malicious abandon.  Their eyes glow green with sickly eldritch fairie-light, and their clacking jaws laugh mercilessly at us as we tumble and spin within a hurricane of methane.  As members of my flock are sucked into the fart’s event horizon, they screech in agony as flames erupt along their scales.  In a matter of seconds, they’re reduced to blackened crumples of char-riddled flesh.  I howl in agony as the edge of the fart touches my bottom claw; my skin drips off the bone in hissing, sizzling streams.

Down below, Kent is laughing maniacally, interspersing his guffaws with primitive, sports-fan-like “WHOOO!”s.  I try to rise high on a thermal, but the air drops beneath me, and I’m suddenly sucked downw by the immense force of the Breakup Fart’s gyre.

This can’t be how it ends.  We manage to avoid an extinction-level event!  FUCK!  I can’t FUCKING BELIEVE—
