My Contrary Love Affair with Action Movies

Action movies are a dime a dozen; Hollywood pumps them out at an astonishing rate. Of all the movie genres, I find action movies to be the most formulaic. They often feature the same faces and rely on about a dozen or so plots, constantly redressed. The more explosions and gun fights you can pack… Read more »

CazellaThe Blue Rose

This is an old piece that I found while digging around on my hard drive (so it may be a bit rougher than usual). Several years ago (probably close to a decade now), my husband and I were coming home from dinner out on Valentine’s Day and we encountered a flower seller in the subway… Read more »

Six Silly Dragon Stories (from My Real Life)

I used to collect dragons. I started in high school when my grandmother purchases me a hand-blown glass dragon as a birthday gift. For awhile, everywhere I went, I came home with a new dragon. Unfortunately, any type of figure collecting is expensive, and my husband and I agree we’ve run out of places to… Read more »

DomerinVery Few Are Left (Revisited)

A while back I decided to re-do a prompt with the same character in the same universe, but at a different part of their life. As usual, Domerin had a lot to offer. But I thought his idea was rather cheaty – since it actually involved a different version of himself (even if he does… Read more »

Icebound Isle

I returned to my first world, dismayed to find it dying. Everything I built remained; the high tower, the markers, the secret place. Winter claimed the rest. Rolling green hills shrouded in snow. Warm, sandy beaches became mud traps. Withered trees shuddered in violent winds, shriveled branches reaching for the sky with no leaves to… Read more »

Liquid Productivity; A Tale of Lust

Continuing with my seven deadly sins series, here’s round two of Lust featuring Veronika (who is new to this blog). . . . Secret organizations, especially those located in underground bunkers, didn’t tend to afford their staff a lot of free time. This particular underground office was luxurious enough that Veronika could almost forget she… Read more »

DomerinThe Other Side of the Coin

Way in the long ago, a friend and I discussed how interesting it would be to pluck Domerin out of the world he’s familiar with and plunk him in the middle of a new one where everyone he knew was an evil version of themselves. Basically the fantasy equivalent of the evil goatee universe for… Read more »

Family is Forever

I apologize that it took me so long to return to this particular story; I actually thought I had written more about this and it turns out I hadn’t ^^;; This is the long-awaited continuation of the story from You Don’t Have to Be Honest With Me and it also ties in nicely with the… Read more »
