Chosen Shackles by Shaeor

The screen is running static. Face your shadow. 

The future came in devastation, but we bury it in the lights now, to forget. It was better once, they tell us not to say. Now, at the end of our century, we’ve rebuilt. The city neon glows brighter and casts a shadow deeper on the world.

This is just the beginning.

In the Eastern Pacific, a sickness is taking roots in the city’s guts. Dead angels are raising dark choirs to sooth our nightmares. Sing Hallelujah. Frode, a young sheep, can’t sleep. Even in dreams, there’s no rest no more. A hungry God is waking up.

Chosen Shackles is a Vaporwave Cyberpunk Webserial. It will update biweekly [sat/tue] and reach novel length. This fiction is a spiritual successor in the Dirge series.

The screen is running static. Face your shadow.

Note: Chosen Shackles contains some graphic violence and harsh language.


A serialized novel, updating twice weekly

First Impressions: Imagine yourself crawling through the streets of Shinjuku City at three in the morning. It’s raining cats and dogs, you’ve been cooped up in a coffin apartment for two days watching the likes of Blade Runner, Mute, Altered Carbon, Johnny Mnemonic, and Dark City. You have your music player blaring a selection of vaporwave and retrosynth as you emerge bleary-eyed and hungry into the shining neon lights of [more . . .]

Distinctive, Experimental Madness

By Rhodeworks, author of Not All Heroes

Apr 27, 2018: (Review of up to 20)

Chosen Shackles was a strange read. I feel this might be one of the first fictions on WFG where I may have to acknowledge that I’m not the intended audience and that I just don’t ‘get it’.

Let’s start with the things I adored. One, the webpage is just amazing. It’s distinct and memorable and it made me sit up and take notice immediately. More serials should [more . . .]
