Merry Christmas

AJ is off home for the holidays so I’m not getting as much attention as I deserve :P

But we wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

Only Child?

Write about the benefits of being an only child—or the advantages of having siblings.

Both kinda apply to me. For 18 years I was an only child – I didn’t know I had siblings. I didn’t have parents that took care of me, but that still made me an only child or should it be orphaned child.

Beliefs

Do you have the same religious beliefs that you had as a child? If so, why? If not, how and why did they change?

I’m sure I’ve answered this one before. The Venatori don’t exactly have a religion. We believe that the world was created and this creator made four races – Aeternus, Dragons, Primeval Vampires and Humans. Technically you could include The Deva as a race as well since Angels and Demons don’t fit into these four categories but they our creator never intended them to live on earth. They came before the four races.

Fortune

Fortune? Good luck? Money? Either which definition you use I don’t need or want any of it.

I’m not materialistic. I need a roof over my head, head and air conditioning, and food. My possessions, other than furniture, fits into three bags. At most four.

Relax

Simplest form of relaxing is yoga. But then any form of exercise is really an exercise in relaxing for me. Whether it’s lifting weights or going for a run, it’s how I wind down at the end of the day. Sometimes even sex counts as relaxing – but it’s more to relieve pent up stress.

Outside the Box

Write about what you see as one of your best qualities. My best quality – you mean I have to choose only one? Honestly, I have few qualities I like about myself. I like the fact that I can think outside the box. I was trained inside a box. The Venatori are superior. We police…

Apple Pie

My earliest childhood memory was when I was probably three or four. We lived in a small wooden cabin in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. It was around the holiday season there was snow everywhere on the ground – my mother couldn’t work because she couldn’t leave the house. The roads were so snow covered a state of emergency was issued – not that I knew what that meant then. But I knew my mother wouldn’t have been home otherwise.

Maddening

Every topic almost always ends up back into the same old rants. I could go on and on about the Venatori beliefs, but I think instead I’ll turn to more personal annoyances – pet peeves.

Aspect

Read the scenes first: Aspect – Outside the Club & Aspect – Mysterious Blue-Eyed Boy My night was amazing. I hadn’t expected it to be. It was tradition to go to Aspect with Jace and Mia. They hadn’t been out since Naya was born, so I went reluctantly. I hadn’t been to Aspect in a…

Folly

I’m not going to take the typical route with this one. I could tell you all about my foolish childhood, or my beliefs or even ramble on about architecture. But one of the most mundane things I have ever done is to learn to dance. I’m not professional level by any means – but I had an instructor and it’s one of those anxiety ridding activities that I love. Letting the music control the body – the movements and precision needed. I’m still in control, but not – it’s relaxing.

Conundrum

Confusing question or problem? While not really a problem or a question I’ve been contemplating this situation. When I say I I’m not actually referring to me – but to AJ. As we share the same mind – I am AJ’s creation after all.

Bespoke

In order to find inspiration for this prompt I read some of the others – there was lots of poetry. No offense to the authors – but poetry is so not my thing. Anyway, the first definition of bespeak is “(of an appearance or action) suggest; be evidence of”. There are is a lot of evidence in my life.

Flee

“The better part of valor! The better part of valor!”

The above quote is a favorite. If you’ve ever played Baulder’s Gate Khalid would shout this as he ran away. The quote is a variation on Shakespeare – yeah me Shakespeare!

An Update

I realized that my writing fell off when I switched blogs. I still need to write Nox on a regular basis so I will focus it here.

I will be finishing both stories here – the cross over with the shadow world, and the original fiction The First Hunt. I might include a fan fiction for the First Age where Nox originated from.
