To the Matt Part 27

Sorry for the delay again. When we left off, Taylor was helping her neighbors with their transgender child. They were about to meet the rest of her neighbor's family to introduce their niece. Fate has a funny way of making things complicated as the past meets the present for Taylor's family.

Myrna and the Genetic Disaster

Myrna and the Genetic Disaster
Complete

By Portia Bennett

 
Introduction: This story is a third in a series within a series. The overall series is the “Cynthia Chronicles”. This story is directly connected to “Simoné and the Second Time Around” and “Marti and the Doppelganger”. The latter left many unanswered questions. Some of those will be answered, some probably not. This is a rewrite of “Myrna and the Grievous Error” which was probably an error in itself. There are many references to previous stories in the series. If you are confused by some of them, just put it off to my senility. There are some darker aspects to this story; however, the overall mood is upbeat. There is an allegory. Myrna Moskowitz puts it out there in a later part. The Cynthia Chronicles takes place in a universe very similar to ours. Unfortunately, it might be too similar.

This is the complete story in one submission. The revision starts to take effect about halfway through the post. If you didn’t read the previous story, start at the beginning. If you did, start around Chapter 7.

The story begins in the dark. Myrna Moskowitz awakes to find she is not in bed with her beloved husband, Avery. Instead, she is in some strange place with The Wizard. So begins a very strange and disturbing adventure that won’t be completed for at least a century.

Red Shoes

Red Shoes
by KaylaKayKee

These are the diary notes of a young man whom after taking a summer job experiences changes beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. It also suggests that there may be magic out there, not in the form of dramatic hocus-pocus but a more subtle one.

And sometimes that magic can come from something as inconspicuous as a pair of — Red Shoes.

I was wearing my favorite dangly earrings that looked like a tiny model of the solar system with only 3 planets. I had a three-quarter sleeved top that showed off my breasts that were small and yet seemed to fit my frame. I heard loud voices behind me and turned to see what the commotion was about and saw my mother and sisters coming toward me, shouting and pointing at me. I covered my face and yelled nooooooo.

Singularity

(adj.) strangeness by virtue of being remarkable or unusual ; (noun) A point in the universe where the density of matter and the gravitational field are infinite, such as at the center of a black hole.

Politics Is... A New Horizon [2.13]

ASE.pngSunny day.jpg

Options exist for all of us. Some are more palatable than others, of course, but in general, it’s a fact that options do exist in most situations.

We can try to be rational about things; we can try to be irrational, too. We can run into danger head-first, or even run away from it screaming bloody murder. The only thing that matters is the effect we want and the effect we get, most of the time.

Success, in a political sense, is measured by you getting what you want with the least cost to anyone or anything you care for in the process. Failure is a deferment of that success with varying costs applied to that deferment as well, naturally.

The question, really, is how do you measure success in more ambiguous situations?

Say, just as a random example, when you race to save your friend from becoming a semi-human barbecue, while partly blinded and far too high in the air for most people’s sanity to handle due to your own poorly tested rune work? What exactly is the win status on that theoretical situation?

Her survival? Your survival? The survival of the world’s political climate as it currently stands, perhaps? Or, and just hear me out on this one, maybe the win would be something completely unexpected which blows the other options out of the water just by existing?

Let’s call that one ‘Option D’, shall we? Any guesses what Hannah’s up to today?

Events unfold, including but not limited to:

People yelling and crying on a balcony,
---
Hannah crying in her bedroom for some reason,
---
And as for Fena…well?

To the Matt Part 26

A thank you to WendyJean for a resolving a plot point that led to a resolution to an earlier plot point. As much as I try to make the story about Taylor and her life in wrestling, little things get stuck in my head making me write all of these other subplots off of the main plot. It's getting long-winded but the end is looming. I am debating a return to Massachusetts to resolve yet another plot point but it could be a seperate story since timing conflicts with my original idea for what is going on.

The Beast - Chapter 4: United

Filas looked Kim in the eyes. Kim looked Filas in the eyes. Then, at the same moment, they approached each other with a few, large steps and embraced each other in a close hug, the first one they’d ever shared. The first time they were physically close. The first time they got to smell each other’s odour. And that in one of the most unlikely places and at the potentially most unlikely time.

“Umm”, the man who had addressed Filas before dragged them back into reality way too soon, “whatever you two are doing there, you should continue once we’re out of here…”

091 – There’s a Storm Coming

To the Matt Part 24

...so that warning about this being the last part of the story barring an unforseen plot twist? It happened. At least one more part as I truly have run out of steam so two parts at the maximum with the last part likely being short.

To the Matt Part 23

Special thanks to LookingGlass for the unintentional inspiration for Mack's family. It's tough to have a story involving pro wrestling without the inclusion of characters from a nation famous for its pro wrestlers. Unless by some unforseen plot twist, this is the penultimate chapter.

Politics Is… Pretty Instinctive at Times [2.12]

ASE.pngFena.jpg

There’s a debate to be made on whether instinct is just a form of advanced self-awareness or a truly separate sense entirely.

There’s also a debate to be made on whether trusting your instincts, consciously or not, is always such a good idea.
Luckily, most politicians are good at debating and Hannah debates with herself constantly, so she’s in good company, right?

Events unfold including but not limited to:

John eavesdropping,
---
Hannah eating more chocolate,
---
And people reassessing things they once thought were impossible, for good or bad.

During the final battle against the forces of Halleb, the Caretaker of the Dead, she was suddenly sent back in time seven years in the past, during the time when peace was cheap and lives were flourishing.

The Beast - Chapter 3: Down

Filas woke with a start. It only took her a few seconds to realize why she woke up in the middle of the night. The neighbours’ party apparently had gained some more fun, so they had turned up the music. There was no way she could fall asleep again with that noise, considering there also seemed to be some people on their balcony, talking very loudly. She might just open the window and tell them to be quieter, but she was feeling way too dysphoric and socially anxious for that. She yawned. What could she do until the music was turned down again?

Magical Girl Assassination Squad: Chapter 5

Sam nervously sat in the doctor’s office. While this wasn’t the first time he had been called to the doctor’s office, it was the first time without being told why. He hoped they had discovered what was wrong with him and had a treatment plan. But, he was also afraid that the doctor was going to tell him that he couldn’t help him. He didn’t know which frightened him more. Sam couldn’t help but jump when the receptionist called his name. His mother squeezed his hand while his father patted him on the shoulder. It wasn’t much, but it reminded him that he wasn’t alone.

Politics is... Full of People in Need of Breaking [2.11]

ASE.pngdrinks 2.jpg

You tend to meet all sorts of people when dealing with Politics; sadly, most of them are politicians. But there's still the odd normal human thrown in as well. Now, those normal human beings can often be worse than the politicians in the long run. In fact, it’s often the case.

That's a whole other kettle of fish, though, and it can get lumped under the often stated fact that people are stupid, unfortunately. Still, the odds are that there are at least a few interesting gems hiding in all the muck, right?

Events unfold including but not limited to:

Hannah corrupts someone,
A toast is raised,
And we avoid talking about the Graeco-Roman religious divide!

The Fall of Those Who Live


By Shiina Ai

To the Matt Part 22

Changes are made in the family and Taylor deals with the lives of others while she reluctantly takes the championship belt until she finds the perfect way of losing it while making it look like it was a natural part of the story. This is a transitional part where the family starts to go beyond just Taylor's issues and builds on their own lives. There's only so much you can say about a wrestler's life without it becoming redundant and boring. Wrestling is repetitive, but drama around their lives isn't (unless you are on a reality show that is!)

Politics Is… Full of Rules in Need of Breaking [2.10]

ASE.pngDrinks.jpg

Where is the line between being friendly and sexual harassment? Can mitigating factors such as ‘she thought I was her ex-lover', for some of it at least, be brought into consideration at all?

Hmm? No real reason why I'm asking… No reason at all, just idle curiosity, honest…
Uh—I mean, I'm asking for a friend.
There! That works better!

Events unfold including but not limited to:

Hannah finds something wrong in her bra,
John finds something wrong in his magic,
And a party rolls on around them regardless of any new information that may come to light because of either issue!
