CYBERMONKEY

A short, silly, high-octane ride through a cyberpunk future where your bullets are few, your friends are fewer, and the long tentacles of the law are slithering up your pant legs. 

I am aware that technically, writing a sentence in all capital letters is gramatically incorrect. I did this on purpose, several times, for stylistic effect. If you point this out in the reviews, a team of hit-apes will kick in your door.

"Death is struck and nature quaking;
All creation is awaking,
To its Judge an answer making.
Lo, the book, exactly worded,
Wherein all hath been recorded;
Thence shall judgment be awarded.
When the Judge His seat attaineth,
And each hidden deed arraigneth,
Nothing unavenged remaineth."

-- Dies Irae

Ultimately, the fate of life is to destroy itself.

Your haunches will hang from a hook in an open-air meat market before you can even memorize the most rudimentary Confucian axioms. Fucking stupid disgusting lard ass.

I don't mean to toot my own horn (I do), but I did win a contest with a post apocalyptic / dark fantasy thing I wrote. I respect that it might not be your thing, though. https://chooseyourstory.com/story/winter,-after-the-harvest

Everything that ninjapitka has written is worth your time. 

Edithe Zilonis and Biscuits and Ghosts by MHD are both great,

That reminds me that The Expanse is the only sci-fi I've seen on TV that actually accounts for that. Their equivalent of MAD is that Earth and Mars both have the technology to push an asteroid into each other's gravity well easily and wipe out the entire planet.

I mean you could probably start by wondering about your alien race's relationship to their tools and weapons are. On Earth, it used to be common for people to have their weapons named and personalized as a way to demonstrate status - do they do the same? Do the aliens have similar or completely different notions of property and status that we do? Does an alien get his first plasma blade from his father after he's completed thirteen solar rotations and is eligible for the mating cycle? You might also ask who builds them, and why.  Of course, all of this is only if you're interested in that kind of "sociological" world building - it's totally fine for an alien to be wielding a Plasma Fucker because it's cool and the bad guys need weapons to distinguish them from the goodies. 

I think though that truly iconic weapons tend to be strongly rooted in place and setting. The lightsaber is like an archetypal example of that; it's a cool visual element but it is also symbolic of the character's development within the story as like a milestone of their progression. Also, a weapon can tell you about the attitudes and norms that are typical of the wielders - remember how cavalier they were with nuclear weapons in Starship Troopers? 

Further, you could think about who gets the heavy firepower and who does not. At the end of Disco Elysium, the two protagonists have to face down a gang of private corporate mercenaries who are armed with anti-tank weapons and space age body armour. The protagonists are under-funded police officers with flintlock pistols. Without drawing explicit attention to it, the narrative demonstrates what kind of society these characters are living in. 

Also, I love the idea of living ammunition, you should add a gun that fires an armoured egg that dissolves in the target and releases a swarm of parasites that devours them from within.
