WOES OF 2012Do you believe in luck? We do in our family. We also believe bad luck comes in threes though this year it seems to be vying with good luck in a bizarre fashion. Here's a break down of how our year's gone and there's still two months to go. I wish it was over already so I don't have to worry about more problems. (of course that's just wishful thinking as each year so far has been bad, matching the economy so well)
Anyway , it started in January, though actually it began in December 2011. We should have been warned the year wouldn't be good when my middle daughter had a bad tooth. Our regular dentist said he didn't do extractions and the one that pulled her wisdom teeth was going to charge me far too much. (bad) Disgusted, I searched for a new dentist that could do everything we needed and was surprised to find one just a block from our old one. (good) They pulled her tooth, gave us a free exam (yeah/good).
Only downside was having to get a new fangled credit card just for den
WOLVES OF ARCANUS, Arc Two: New Beginnings, CH 3CHAPTER 3: Jake: Transitions, Homesickness, & Training
Genus stepped into the quarters he shared with Jake. He had hoped it would be empty but there was the red tom at the computer console going through a lesson he'd been given during orientation.
Jake had heard him enter and halted the problem he was working on to look up and smile at his mate. He'd stopped thinking of Genus as just a lover when they'd done the tour of Aristal. It was obvious to all they would always be together so denying they were mates made no sense.
Hi, how was the debriefing? He asked, casually.
Genus winced inside...and he's given me an opening too...he thought unhappily. Rubbing his neck and feeling distinctly uncomfortable, he stared into his mate's brown eyes a moment before saying, rather bluntly, It went well but new information came out about you and Ulysses. I'm sorry, Jake but your tests have stated you two have a magical core and...
What? Jake lunged from his seat to stand in front of
WOLVES OF ARCANUS, Arc Two: New Beginnings, CH 2CHAPTER 2: Chance: Transitions, Homesickness, & Training
A/N: This is rather raw and edited very little as you're not supposed to do that when doing NANOWRIMO, however, I can't help doing some as I go along. Anyway, this may get updated when I finish the challenge so you may have to read it again. Meanwhile, I hope you like what I've written and that its not too messed up. It's going to be a long period of work to edit the whole darn thing when I'm done. LOL
Hissing in frustration, the sandy colored feline violently shoved himself from his computer console and lunged to his feet. Stalking toward the large, oval window, he leaned against it and stared moodily at the moving star scape.
Of course, it really wasn't the stars he was seeing. The ship was traveling at warp speed and that view would have driven him insane as it wasn't something his brain was able to process being an insane mix of kaleidoscopic and garish colors and wild impossible images. So the massive computer that ra
WOLVES OF ARCANUS, Arc Two: New Beginnings, CH 1CHAPTER 1: Mission Debrief
A/N: Here is the second arc I promised of my epic story Wolves of Arcanus. In this arc we'll explore how Feral, Jake, and Chance adjust to living on a spacecraft and follow their trials and tribulations as they learn to become full members of the starship Wotan's crew. This is also my NANOWRIMO entry for 2012.
Sailing majestically out of the solar system, the Galactic Alliance Starship Wotan, headed back out into the universe to continue their mission of eradicating the species known as the Tibican wherever they encroached on other inhabitant's worlds.
They'd stopped at the only inhabited planet in this system because their enemy had visited there but were pleased to discover the planet's inhabitants had met the Tibican with significant and catastrophic resistance ... catastrophic for the enemy, that is. The scouts had found to their instant demise that the feline species was well able to defend themselves from being slaughtered and their planet
