SK: THERE BE DRAGONS, CH19Feeling more at ease than he'd had in decades, Feral enjoyed his flight back to Enforcer Headquarters. Doing some lazy barrel rolls for the sheer exhilaration of it he let the wind flow over him. He wished he had more time to just fly but work beckoned. Avoiding his patrol choppers with ease, he glided smoothly to a landing on the flight line close to the tower. Reverting back to Kat form, he strode with a jaunty step back to his office.
He'd barely settled at his desk, however, when he was interrupted by a knock. Sighing, he called out as he pulled a stack of file folders and reports toward himself.
The door opened and in walked a tall, trimly built, gray tom with thinning white hair and piercing blue/gray eyes. He wore no over coat or uniform jacket, only his dress shirt with it's sleeves rolled up just as his commander's were. A controller's earphone hung from one long ear and bounced as he crossed the tile floor and halted before Feral's pedestal desk, snapping to attent
How Christianity gave us gay marriage (?)Now here's a stunning article that made me sit up and stare at it in amazement. The piece is well worth the time to read. Equality is at the heart of the article and is the reason for the author's outrageous comment. It gives me hope that despite the hell the world is going through to find some area of peace, that Christianity (of all things)is the one holding up the banner of equality for all and isn't that amazing?
SK: For Love of a Princess, CH 4CHAPTER 4: Females do too know how to fight!
Shaking off his ringing head, Firelain staggered off after the Princess. Checking the hall, he spotted Rainstar as she disappeared through a door at the end of the hall. He raced after her.
Yanking the door open he saw her disappear through yet another door a short distance ahead. The small room he passed through held the enormous clockworks of the huge clock in the tower. The sight of it nearly made him stop and stare but he had to catch Rainstar.
Bursting through the door, Firelain nearly stumbled back into the room he'd left when he saw a huge flying monstrosity of metal rush rapidly closer to the rooftop swirling up a hurricane of dust and dirt.
Princess Rainstar in her glamour stood waiting nearby a painted circle on the roof, her coat flapping from the violent winds that whipped around them as the strange craft swooped in and landed.
Though terrified, Firelain gathered his courage and ran to try and stop
SK:Wolves of Arcanus, Arc 2, CH 28, 2nd halfChapter 28, Second Half of World Ship Rescue
All around the room those not involved with doing the inspection whispered excitedly amongst themselves. Obviously, what had happened had impressed them a great deal but it frightened them too.
The Council Speaker seemed to sense this. He leaned closer to Star. "That explanation will need to be clearly heard by all to prevent a bad reaction to the fear I hear beginning to rise among my people."
Star nodded. "I understand and will comply. May I say, I am impressed at how well attuned you are to your people's emotions. A singularly exceptional talent for someone in as important position as a member of the council for the Jentaroo."
Remarn blushed at the compliment, though it was hard to tell with the blue skin. Star only knew the alien was doing it by the darkening of its cheeks.
"It is a family trait," he said, modestly, smiling shyly. "Most would not have realized I was doing something unusual at all."
Star smiled back. "But, I'm not just an
SK:Wolves of Arcanus, Arc 2, New Beginnings, CH 28CHAPTER 28: World Ship Rescue
While Ulysses, Chance, and Jake enjoyed their first visit to the Alliance home world, Commander Shegar was looking into why the Jentaroo Prime had returned to this area of space so early. Something had to be seriously wrong and only two choices came to mind ... either they had discovered a threat to the Galactic Alliance or, just as worrisome, they had developed problems within their own world.
Though there were plenty of willing hands, minds, and technology here to solve whatever the problem was he couldn't help but be curious, that was the nature of wolves. So he sent out feelers trying to find out what might be the problem but, despite discreet inquiries made to all his contacts, they either didn't know anything or they were being incredibly closed mouth about the Jentaroo. Either way, he wasn't going to get the information he wanted this way but he wasn't entirely without other resources.
Knowing Commander Taglar wouldn't have gone planet side yet ...

Days of NanoWrimo
Day One: This is so going to work! Kiss everyone goodbye, except for the voices in your head. They'll help you along the way, really! Make sure you are fully supplied with coffee and chocolate. Word Goal: 1,667
Day Two: You don't really have a plot, but that'll come in time, you say. Don't be afraid to stay up a little late. DO NOT EAT ALL THE CHOCOLATE TODAY OR YOU WILL DIE! Word Goal: 3,333
Day Three: One tenth there, you tell yourself happily. Life is still good. Try looking at depressing poetry for more plot ideas, and read Shakespeare Cliff's Notes. If you've already read most of Shakespeare's works, constantly reference it in your novel, and smile because whoever you have read it first will either a: not get them and wonder where that came from, or b: think you are such a cool person because you've read Shakespeare. 5000
Day Four: Try explaining NanoWrimo to an outsider. Find some way to discreetly place a similar scene in your novel. Be sure the outsider is not a first reader. W
A Battle of Extremes(MR. CYNICISM, MS. SINCERE, and DR. PASSION congregate for battle.)DR. PASSION
Where's all the booze, guys? Where's the music? I thought this was supposed to be a party.
This is a battle, not a party, good doctor. You may want to remove your lamp shade so you can be prepared to fight.
I didn't hear anything about no violence at this here get-together-battle-party-what-have-you.
That is the definition of battle: Where two or more parties come together and -
- come together and make a whole lot of excitement between them. See? That's what I'm saying.
I should have anticipated such a gross misinterpretation of the facts, given your appalling track record with regard to such things as facts.
I'm sure it was an honest mistake, a result of a miscommunication. We can all be friends still, right?
Aside from the battle, of course.
I wouldn't have it any other way.<
