You have such a way of making any setting and environment Real and believable. Fast paced while still retaining strong characters that have their own little history to insinuate without ever having to relay the nitty gritty details. I could imagine the rush of falling alongside the waterfall, flushed from the adrenaline matched with the chill of the moisture and rushing air. It seems like a story that could have more to tell, although it is wrapped up very neatly. I’d like to see more like this one, that’s for certain.
Another job well done! :)

Short story (5,000 words). A bunch of BASE jumpers travel to a remote rural location to enjoy an illicit exit-point; but the area cossets the corruptive remains of a site of worship, where an abomniable entity fell from the Stars millenia ago and infected the earth, air and water. Ignoring the warnings, a swift and brutal tale of cosmic horror unfolds.
