SWTOR: The Wish of One Affected the Other: Maelstrom Prison

Several hours have gone by as the engineers and slicers worked on the Gree computer recovered from Taral V. My friends were celebrating behind me as I looked out on the rolling clouds of the Maelstrom. A violent mixture of gas and plasma much like a thunder cloud, but colorful from the mixture of different gasses. Hidden in those gasses were tiny grains of sand to planet sized asteroids. If the plasma didn't get you the debris would and if not that the fluctuating gravity would.

Chapter 11 Mia's POV

I had passed on almost all of my duties to Katie and Roni. Ash was going to take over on Elf Cultural studies, so I was ready to leave. I had delayed my flight so I could keep track of what was happening in New York while Tia was occupied with her diplomatic efforts. I was so proud of her. And yet I thought it was probably best that I made the decisions regarding our action there.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 10

Chapter 10

The next morning left me in a contemplative mood. The first lot of our security forces had landed in New York, however, Andi had already informed me that one vehicle had gone to a harbour, and she had lost track of another one. So there was a one in seven chance that Cari was now on the water and probably untraceable and a one in seven chance that we had lost her trail.

“What's wrong, honey?” Vee asked me while we were having breakfast.

Jan's Portfolio LLC


Jan’s Portfolio LLC


By Jamie Lee

I could not wrap my head around what I just read, for the third time, as I closed the back cover of Jan’s journal, for the third time. Jan and I had been partners in Jan’s Portfolio LLC for sixteen years, and I loved the girl dearly. But this…how can this be? Her full name is Janelle Mathew, she and I are the same age. And she is our daughter! But our Janelle Mather is only, five-years-old!

“Please, don’t leave me.”
The voice that spoke was hollow and frail. It was empty, the voice of someone who had lost everything, trying desperately to hold onto something they knew they could never have.

Chapter 1- The Boy Next Door

--- Alexis, December 23rd, 2022. 7:53 AM ---

“Class,” our teacher’s voice somehow managed to break through the chaos and anarchy that is an elementary school classroom the day before Christmas vacation. “Before we begin, I’d like to announce our new transfer student, Gabriel Morris.”

The rest of the room started up in hushed whispers, and even I couldn’t help it.

“Who moves at this time of year?” I had asked the question quietly and rhetorically, only to get an answer back anyway.

“Seriously?”

All Alexis ever wanted to be was normal. But when she's reunited with an old friend she didn't remember she's reminded of the ugly truth: The world isn't always a kind place.
Faced with struggle and conflict in the real world she withdraws into the new VRMMORPG, a game called Resistance in a world where players can move their virtual avatars the same way they move their real bodies.
In this Virtual World, Alexis becomes Faye; the cold blooded sniper who faces all her problems with her rifle.

Alexis Book 1: Family - Prologue

Prologue- Those 3 Years

Even now, after three long years, her words were still engraved in my memory.

‘I’m gonna be honest with you,’ she had said to me that day. ‘It won’t always be easy. And it won’t always be fun and games. But if this is truly what you want, if this is truly what you believe you need, then it’ll all be worth it. You’ll always have my love and support. You only get one chance at life, you have to live it your way.’

And that’s how the best 3 years of my life began.

Virtually Feminine - Part 5 - Passing time

shower_0.jpg
I'm not quite sure how best to continue telling this story. There were so many parallel streams of my life set in motion after my birthday, each of them so separate from each other that they almost felt like they were happening to different people at the same time like some weird version of synchronicity.

Caution added for references to rape and suicide - there's nothing graphic here but they are part of the story.

The Vacation That Changed My Life

I don't know who to blame it on this time, but I couldn't resist doing a 'Staycation' story. So I decided to whip this little ditty out when I should have been sleeping.

This story takes place in my Sweet Sixteen universe.

The Vacation That Changed My Life

It all happened when my family went to the annual Blessed Temple training camp.

Bryce Mansfield put the finishing touches of make-up on his face. There, thought the six-foot-two, 22-year-old, 170-pound engineering senior. He should pass adequately as a twelve-year-old Chinese-American girl.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 8

Chapter 8 Tia's POV

I was about halfway through my breakfast when things took a turn for the worse. My breakfast table usually just consisted of Vee and me, with the rest of my guard at tables around me. Since I was having lunches and dinners with Wendy on Lagbit's World and since she was momma's bonded, even if momma didn't know it yet, I now included her as part of my inner circle.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 6

Chapter 6 Tia's POV

I woke up lying on a beach. It took a few seconds for my brain to kick into gear and remember that I was back on Earth on some deserted beach south of Barcelona. The last few days in Lagbit's World had been a bit emotional. Myra and Wendy were inseparable, but I don't think they did more than cuddling. Myra refused to copy Wendy onto a condemned man until Mia had been brought to meet her and accepted Wendy on Earth.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 5

Chapter 5 Tia's POV.

I was enjoying my stay in Lagbit's World like usual except I wasn't seeing much of mum. That first evening she came in distracted and then after that she wasn't at our usual Taigoa practice or any lunch or dinners. Finally she reappeared for our fourth day evening meal, but she came in flustered. Mrya is the most solid person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She was always calm, cool and collected, until now.

“Are you alright mum?” I asked her.

“Hmm?” She turned to me with a confused look on her face.

“I said, are you alright?”

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 4

Chapter 4 Wendy's POV

I woke up in the same bed I had the last time, when I had been transformed. We were all taken to stay in the church dormitories. In theory, we could all be taken to different glades for the familiar summoning ceremony, but it was traditional to use the most sacred site. It was also traditional for the most senior druid to perform the rite, so we were going to have one per day and I was third in line.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 3

Chapter 3 Matteo/ Wendy's POV

I woke up back in the real world and was about to take my headset off when I heard Tia's voice asking us not to. We all waited, but it must only have been a few minutes, just enough for Tia to be out of sight. After we had our headsets off we got back in the van and, I guess, since I was the last to be picked up, I was the first to be dropped off. The nice elf who had picked me up, checked the house out before passing me a mobile phone.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 2

Chapter 2 Tia's POV

Another three days fun in Lagbit's World and another six elves transformed. I woke up on the air mattress with Vee beside me and started the next part of my routine. “No one take off your headsets until you are told to do so.” I called out. I'm pretty sure everyone knew it was me, but if they didn't actually see me, they could still honestly say that they had no idea where I was. Vee and I removed our headsets and left the tent.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 3 Chapter 1

Chapter 1 New British Prime Mininster's POV

While we were waiting for everyone to arrive for our first proper cabinet meeting I sat down and tried to practice my approachable relaxed posture.

“Sir.”

“You can still call me David, Carmine.”

“OK, David, how was the visit with the Queen?”

“Interesting. She all but admitted that she had asked my predecessor to resign, but had no desire to interfere again. She did bring up something else that we have to wait until everybody is here to discuss.”

Vivid Dream Reality Book 2 Chapter 2

Chapter 2 Tia's POV

We were both going to be checked over. This included MRI scans, particularly of our reproductive organs. This was partially because of where Vee was sore, but also there was a strong suspicion that Dr Sinclair was involved. We all remembered that he had wanted to operate on Vee's ovaries. They had been trying to keep him under surveillance by monitoring his phone and ipad, but when we went missing so did he, unfortunately leaving his electronic equipment behind.

Vivid Dream Reality Book 2 Chapter 1

Chapter 1 General Pearson's POV

I watched the recorded press conference and subsequent kidnapping footage from the beginning. This was looking like a clusterfuck and I wanted nothing to do with it. Rule number one, if you are going to make someone disappear, no one must know about it.

Vivid Dream Reality Chapter 2

Chapter 2

Some time later, I have no idea how much, there are no clocks after all, the high priestess visited me. My room only consisted of a bed with a chest at the end that had my clothes, a small table with a chair. I sat on the bed and the high priestess sat on the chair, but turned around so that she was facing me.

“I have done my research and we should still be on for tonight, there were a couple of things that came up that we need to discuss.”

“OK, priestess.”

Vivid Dream Reality Chapter 1

Chapter 1

I sat facing the beautiful elven high priestess. She had a frown on her face, but I don't think any expression could seriously dampen her stunning good looks.

“Do you know why you are here?”

Chapter 2

The beautiful countryside smelled of fresh grass and wildflowers. The roads this close to Threefold still overflowed with masses of adventurers choosing the easy path to their early quests, though the crowds put the lie to the word “easy.” I walked the fields, confident that the occasional starving wolf or unskilled bandit would offer me little real danger.

UWOChapter 2 - Class Change

Dusting himself off, Nathan pulled himself off a marble altar and shook his head to clear himself of teleportation daze. He was startled for a moment as he felt Alvia’s long tresses brush against his back and obscure his sight. Allowing his delicate leg to dangle over the edge of the altar he placed his arm behind himself to support himself as he leaned back to look around.

He was currently surrounded by large columns of marble that reached to dizzying heights, supporting the Cathedral’s granite arched ceiling. Stained glass, statues, paintings, and candles were unmistakable; he was with in the Cathedral of the Divine.

Hello, World!

 

Chapter 1: Getting Classy

 

The first thing I noticed entering the world was the cool breeze on my skin. For a moment I kept my eyes closed, and took it all in. There was the smell of fresh grass, the birds sang their little hearts out, and the world felt…. Fresh.

I opened my eyes to find myself standing in one of the many little parks that were scattered throughout Threefold. It was such a familiar sight; I’d spent days just wandering the streets of Threefold, and here I was once again. It was exactly as I remembered and yet so much more. The breeze became a bit more pronounced, and I looked down to see if I was dressed right at least.

“Dalton?” Damnit, I hated that name… The intercom drew my attention away from my computer, but the water cooler was sealed so the processor was in no danger.

Unfolding World Online: A New World- Chapter 1

UWOPrologue:Logging in.

Jiggling the key in the old lock to his apartment door, Nathan could barely contain his excitement as he slipped into his rather drab apartment. He was greeted by the sight of an old used sofa and kitchen table that he had reclaimed from his parent's garage. A mix match of plates, cups, and other odds and ends lay scattered about in piles. It wasn’t much in the way of style but it served his needs; besides the life of tier two IT tech support monkey really couldn’t support much more.

Just thinking about work immediately soured his mood. The day had been an odd mix of boredom and hell. The boredom was due to the IT gods deeming today was the day nothing would go wrong. Which left him in what seemed like perpetual anticipation with nothing but his favorite gaming news websites to keep him entertained. The hellish part was that his boss didn’t quite understand the concept of downtime, and had driven the office crazy by nagging everyone on the floor to keep busy so the metrics looked good. Despite there being very literally nothing to do.

Prologue: The final countdown

 

Time it seemed had slowed down. And not in the fun way, not in the Unfolding World Online way. UWO had a time dilation system, time would actually slow down artificially. Ok, so time is not really affected of course, but our perception of time is, which is as good as the real thing. There were whole research papers on the effects of time dilation on the human brain and body, they were publicly available. I had even once given it a shot, to try and learn more about it, but the dryness of the content had me quickly giving up on it. Everyone in the end agreed it was safe for use when the proper safeguards were in place, and that was what mattered for me.

I wrote this story about personal growth through interaction in a Virtual World largely in response to Dorothy Colleen’s challenge to write something about a 40+ transition. I’m not sure it will get that far, but the characters are the right age at least.
I set it in Second Life, as that’s an environment I am familiar with. I was going to go through afterwards and edit all the references to some generic VR World but I think it gives it a more realistic feel by using the names and jargon from a ‘real’’virtual world that some of you may be familiar with.
