"It's the least we can do."

That's what they had said when they had come into his hospital room, clipboards in hand and curious, though not unkind, looks in their eyes.

It was natural for those who were healthy to be curious about the dying after all, and that was exactly what he had been doing, slowly and agonizingly, for the last three years.

It had started out innocuously enough, with a twinge in his temple when he would stand up or turn his head too quickly. The twinge had turned to a spike, and the spike into a burning lance, piercing his head with every movement.

For years he had devoted his life to becoming one of the most promising young talents in the computer technology world.

He felt it somewhat ironic that he would die not being able to stand looking at a monitor for more than five minutes without a morphine drip in place.

And when the troubles returned, the Sea-folk reached across time and space to find a very special person, someone both male and female, to find to rid this strange world of darkness, oppression and misery.

Danica finds herself in a strange world with new languages, cultures, personalities and challenges on a quest to find The Silver Cleric.

Arista is.. not playing around [5.7]

ourIceMain.jpg

What is 'right' and what is 'wrong'?
Morality is a personal ideal, a human construct, or so some would have us believe?
It doesn't make certain people or actions any less irredeemable though.

No matter how you try to spin it, forgiveness just isn't possible ever again in some situations.

Events unfold including but not limited to:
Hannah reliving some rather racy fantasies,
Arista tells a story about a magical princess-turned-queen
(fictional elements being both optional and undisclosed),
while John wears lip-gloss for a very short period of time.


Night and Day, part 03 of 12

“He said you’ve changed your name to Artemis? Why? Jamie works fine for a girl as well as a boy.”

 

Better for a girl than a boy, I thought, remembering some of the teasing I’d had to put up with. No sense bringing that up now, though.

We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes off to Have a Good Time

We Don’t have to take our clothes off to have a good time.

Author's notes: I just want to thank everyone who has helped me. I hope you all enjoy this little love story.

*********
“Have you tried turning it off and on”, the two strangers passing by each other mutter out loud in a sarcastic tone with a bad Irish brogue as they heard a hipster talking on his uPhone about the tech issue he was having with his uPad. They looked at each other and laughed when they made eye contact. They both knew that the other quoted a line from their favorite TV show, The IT Crowd.

Lady in Waiting Part 4

Lady in Waiting 3.jpg

Impulsive as ever Charlotte now goes in search of the English Army to plead with them to rescue Anna not knowing what path this will lead her.

In this and future episode’s of Book 2 I have borrowed very heavily from the excellent ‘Sharpe’ series of books by Bernard Cornwell which describe the times and the country perfectly.
I have avoided using any names in those novels but in a few places I have used Major Sharpe as an incidental character.

Author’s Note: This is a stand alone story which ties into my story “Single: Given to Fly” You do not need to have read the first one to follow this story.

Lastly a shout out to all my peeps who helped me.

“Sweet, you booked us to use the AK-47s at the shooting range” Heath said as he slammed on his breaks and felt his car hit something. He focused his attention and saw a man sliding down the hood of his Charger, the pride and joy of his life. The concerned man got out of his car and went to check to see if there was any damage to his hood.

Today's Fable

OK, I'm a little late posting, but here's today's fable. It's one that reflects my Lakota roots. Enjoy. - Haylee V

The Brave and the Rattlesnake

One day, a Lakota brave went up a mountain into the timberlines to gather wood for the fire. While he was busy gathering the wood, he happened upon a rattlesnake, shivering in the cold.

"Brother brave," the snake said, pleading, "Please help me. I am freezing up here, and if I stay much longer, I shall surely die."

Unknown to All

Who Am I?

I'm always alone and have nobody to go to.

I live in an orphanage that I’ll be in until I’m old enough to leave.

I’ll be lucky if I ever graduate.

I ask the question again, Who am I?

I am the one looked down upon for being short and being the dumbest kid for my age.

Nobody wants to be my friend and I’m all alone with the teachers while the kids go out for recess.

This isn’t how I wanted life to go. This is just how it happened.

I’m the outcast, the one that nobody pays any attention to.

True Riches - A Fable by Haylee V

OK, Gentle Readers, here's today's fable for your enjoyment.
=== === ===
True Riches
(c) 2017
Haylee V

One day, a farmer went to the convenience store to feed his one vice -- gambling. He knew that the odds were against him ever hitting it big, but he indulged himself once a week, allowing himself to purchase a single $1 lottery ticket. He had never won, but got joy just the same by the anticipation.

His wife, however, saw this as a needless expense.

Daily Parable

Many years ago, a very wealthy nobleman took his son with him to tour his vast lands. Along the way, the son saw many of the nobleman's poor serfs. As night approached, and being far from home, they reached perhaps the poorest serf they had encountered. The man and wife looked bedraggled - their clothes were little more than rags, their small hovel run-down, and crowded by them and their three children. Cats and dogs ran in and out frequently, and the food was nothing more than fruits and vegetables -- there was no meat, no cheeses, no bread, and especially no wine.

Intermittent Site Issues

Sorry about the instability of the site today, I was out of the house when we first noticed the issue, and I did my best to patch things from my phone. Since we've been home I've been watching and babysitting and patching anything that seems to show issue.

We are currently working on a couple of internal hardware moves to help improve stability but right now with how tight things have been, hardware upgrades are not in the budget.

Summa Cum Laude

“It isn’t noble to be different. I’m not a hero because I’m who I am any more than I should be the target of hate for being me.”

He pushed at an errant curl. He had argued with his mother about the length of his dress . . . more out of habit than any difference over what was appropriate for a graduation speech.

“Our society wants everything to fit neatly on a spectrum with one end being preferred over the other. The fact that I’m different from many of my classmates doesn’t make me better or worse . . . just different.”
