Mandry knew her cosplay was not perfect. The costume was simple enough. A black dress, a red ribbon tied into a large bow atop her head, and a simple straw broom. That with a little work and she was Kiki the witch from Kiki's Delivery Service.

"Haha, good joke, now let me go."

"Why not?"

"Why should I? Every time I have helped you this semester you've criticized me. Not one word of thanks. I don't know why you are even asking me."

"No one else would do it."

"Mr Nicolai, what do you have on your desk?"

"Cake, Professor Charwick."

"Cake?" The professor spoke doubtfully while starring at the gray lump on Nicolai's desk. "Have you used leftovers from lunch to make this as well?"

A scattering of laughter met this until Charwick turned his stare on the rest of the class. Nicolai shook his head and didn't wait for the laughter to stop before answering.Click here to continue reading... )

Resting in the shade of an evergreen tree Gregory looked on the residence hall that would be his home for the next few years. While catching his breath a breeze washed over him and ruffled his short summer fur taking the edge off the summer's heat. Not that he was complaining. His parents always said Laufeld's don't complain, they get to work. Thoughts of getting a bed all to himself once more helped as well.Continues under the cut... )

The hatch of the ship's mess hall slammed open so hard it bounced back at the woman who had opened it. Gray furred ears and bronze eyes scanned the room before she stalked into the room.

"Nyalla? This is your shift is it not? Is there a problem?"

"Apologies Berun, this shouldn't take long."

Turning from her fellow kellian she strode forward once more, pressing into the personal space of one particular human mage-armor pilot.

"Tell me, are you merely a coward or fool and a coward both?"

Tira glanced past Daven at the wooden spider. At least she thought it was wood aside from the metal joints. It wasn't really a spider, almost more like the downy ball of Puffball weeds, but those didn't walk across rooms and up bookshelves.

The emperor glanced towards the windows and realized the sun had set. Hours of discussion with his advisors and they had yet to come up with a solution to the southern frontier.

"No!" Thankfully General Lethain's fist silenced the speaker by pounding upon table rather than face. "Why can you not keep this in your head? It does not matter if they have equal claims on the valley, the Eshelti and Albelti Clans are oil and water. It will not work!"

"Then keep them separate, perhaps if we rule that each receives one side of the valley?"

"Take two of the clans with the hottest tempers in the empire and set them facing each other with a river and fields to fight over? Within a year they will be fighting each other instead of guarding the frontier."

The emperor's eyes found their way to the remains of their meal. Standing he took a crystal bottle from it's silver tray and set it upon the conference table.

"You speak of oil and water but let me remind you neither do oil and vinegar mix. And yet this dressing has not broken because of the egg yolk. The Eshelti and Albelti must agree on a third clan to join them or lose their claim. And all must settle together."

Mrs. Toler,

I am pleased to report that since my prior letter Miss Mika's participation in class has been much improved. She had been reporting to class on time and listened to instruction. Miss Mika's performance in the recent gymnastics unit was impressive and I would be pleased to see her in next term's gymnastics class. You may wish to discuss the possibility of an Academy gymnastics scholarship as I believe she could earn one if she continues to put in the same effort shown recently in General Physical Education.

I am less confident about her desire to enroll in introductory swordsmanship. click to continue reading... )

Warnings: slavery, some snarkiness, body modified character
Length: 2413 words
Genre/Setting: Fantasy, set in [personal profile] aldersprig's work


Flann sat perched on the side table and watched the mysterious girl sleep. There were times being a feline moddy could be quite useful. Being presumed little more than entertainment in the form of living art made meant few in the household paid any real attention to him. Which made his true job of protecting Lady Dwyer all the easier. Ever since the previous morning that meant watching this girl, young woman really, who had collapsed at the back doorstep without anyone seeing her arrive.

"Cat, you're sitting where her breakfast tray goes."

Whew, so that was seven characters in roughly seven days. I'm going to take a week off from that but the week after... I'll either do another seven characters in seven days or perhaps seven posts fleshing out a setting. I might also come back and revise these characters and the setting. But not now.

This next week my big goal is writing more of The Unquiet Past, by Terinu fanfic which has been a long time idle. There won't be public posts of that for a while as I decided to hold off on posting again until it's complete (other than someone who will be getting to see the in progress pieces).

I've had thoughts of writing up a RP setting I'd tinkered with back in the 90s and early 00s which for lack of a better name showing up yet I've called Island Police. Take a dash of old, old memories of Hawaii 5-O (the original show), sprinkle on some anime influences, a bit of the Aria and Ironclaw RPGs. The setting is a cluster of islands covering a decent amount of space. Sadly all my old notes are gone, having either been in my head, on papers lost in moving, or on un-backed up drives. If I start rebuilding it I'll make certain there are backups.

I'm going to blame [livejournal.com profile] jeriendhal for the seed of a thought that lead to this opening...


Mika had worried when her mom's boss said he'd handle parent-teacher night. She could picture the fury on her mom's face if any of the things she feared would be mentioned came to her through him. But the way everyone made room as he entered made it hard to worry about any of them. The crowd of parents, teachers, and kids parted before him with hushed whispers of, "The Dragon!"

Before they were halfway through the room the vice-principal was trying to lead her away with a hand on her shoulder, "Now Mika, don't be bothering him I'm sure he's busy."

"No." That was all it took to make him stop mid-step. The school's most feared disciplinarian actually shaking.

"Sir! If she's given you any trouble."

"Then I will inform her mother when she returns. For now she is with me."

It was a valuable world. A mostly intact ecosystem by Imperium standards, plenty of land to divide up, and according to the seers no magic worth speaking of. Battle Sorcerer Shethkane looked over his troops with an eager tooth filled grin.

"The seers have located one of their major cities. We move as soon as the gates stabilize. The fools have built it ripe for the plucking. No city walls, no interior walls, and the only troops to be seen are few in number and carry neither swords nor identifiable wands or staves." Click here to continue... )

Trelander kept a neutral face while the human king across the table debated the treaty with his advisor. He suspected Dylan knew he could hear everything they said, still it would be rude to be obvious about it.

"You cannot truly mean to sign it now? We have only had but a single chance to read it. We should bring in one of the surviving scholars. Someone who has made a study of the elvish tongue."

Kyle fought back the urge push the horses faster. Even he could tell they were already pushing them harder than they should. The poor animals were panting with a harsh wheezing that was painful to listen too and foaming at the mouth in a way he had always thought writers had made up. Rising higher on Lydia's shoulders he could finally make out the top of the walls over the next rise. "Yes! We've made it!"

Of course they have, because it's always this easy in good fiction. :) )

Osita had returned to staring at the snow covered ground as he trudged along with the gray lizard men. He was thankful that at least they were breaking a trail through the deepening snow. Even more thankful that the one who had his rope didn't yank on it like Chipped Tooth had. It was getting to be late in the evening when they finally stopped at a stone building that looked new and unweathered. Only then, turning and looking back did he realize just how high they had climbed up the mountain.
