I endured years of experiments at the hands of sadistic aliens. Barely eighteen, I've been rescued from the tiny cell and the years of enforced sensory deprivation. Lost, with no family or friends I can remember or would turn to if I could, I'm alone in the universe... except for the humans who saved me. The Captain. Zeke. Doc. A crew of misfit Rangers, a ragtag bunch operating just this side of legal--and often on the other side when circumstances are right--are not the kind to help someone “like me” recover. Captain wants to send me away, but I can't leave. No one else can touch me.
He's it for me, the strength I can't function without.

For Camp NaNoWriMo, I had to write 10,000 words in 30 days. The result is two short stories in one. Here they are. Disappearance is a world class thief with ragdoll-like superpowers, and he has his eyes on the Nano Wrimo Diamond. Follow him as he encounters many world building...er, I mean, colorful distractions along the way, meeting up with basic characters that I'll flesh out in future stories...er...complex human beings who can't be boiled down to one or two character traits, and flop flop flop all the way to the bank (figuratively; the diamond is in a museum)! Just think of Disappearance as Male!Catwoman and you'll be all set.
