Quicken

My first crush was a boy. He was also my first kiss while the kiss wasn’t memorable, the beat down afterwards was. You can read about here. I remember watching him swim, the feeling of fluttering butterflies in my stomach, the quickening of my heart. He was beautiful. Though in hind sight, I like my…

Dragon Hunting – Ugly Dog Saloon

The Ugly Dog Saloon was a hole in the wall bar in between several other bars. There were no Harley’s or other bikes sitting outside the bar, there wasn’t any parking on the streets most of the time. And tonight was a street cleaning night so the cars would get towed and fined, always a…

Oops

Oops I forgot to post. I had a daily post all set to roll but i never wrote it. I’m bad!

New York City Resident

Write about how you’re a typical resident of your city or town… or about how you’re different from most people there. I’m not a typical New York City Resident in and of the fact that I’m not human. I live in a world where the supernatural exists. I am one of such beings. I live…

Il Cane

Tell your story about the time you succeeded at something because you just. Didn’t. Give. Up. I’ve spoken about it before – the fact that I hunted Il Cane. It was part of my first Hunt. But it isn’t really part of that particular serial AJ was working on. So, I’ll tell you about the…

Baby

I love kids. Can you blame me? I want to be a father. I want to have that responsibility, but I want to provide someone the unconditional love they deserve because they are alive. Call me sentimental but kids are great. I know they are a lot of work. I’m not a stranger to watching…

Dragon Hunting – Waiting

I had been right, the rest of my afternoon was boring. I sent Sage a text with an image of my dinner – steak and roasted sweet potatoes in olive oil and a little cinnamon and sugar and a small side salad with raspberry vinaigrette. Me 646-555-4512 Sat, 06/23/2015 Jealous? 6:13 PM Mysterious blue-eyed boy…

Slur

Insults anyone? We have the typical racial slurs – a Venatori can look like any human on the planet in terms of skin color, hair etc. We are human to a degree, but it’s the origins of our background that gave us our coloring just like humans. Same goes for Primeval vampires, the sun changes…

Rhythmic

I think the best part of running is the rhythmic beat of each foot fall. It’s calming. It’s probably why I do it everyday. Why it became a coping mechanism when my life is out of control. Between that and whatever play list I have going it’s the perfect dismissal of everything. The ability to…

Hideout

When I was little well not little more like ever since I could sneak out of the AU building I’ve had my own secret hideout. It wasn’t really a secret – Dae’lin and Dorian both knew exactly where they could find me if I was studying. See the problem with the dorms is you shared…

Before the Storm – Lunch Date

After I got a few doors away from her office, I pulled out my phone and I looked at the last message Sage had sent. Mysterious blue-eyed boy 646-555-2915 Sat, 06/23/2015 Maybe. Soon. :) 11:45 AM I smiled. But here I was flirting with a guy when I had to deal with making an heir….

Glitter

I know I’ve spoken about my alter egos in AJs mind. There is the original Nox – the rp character who is slowly falling more in line with the rest of us. The First Age Nox was straight – he was never intended to like men. At least not upon creation, but as AJ wrote…

Worst Classmate?

Write about one of the worst classmates or coworkers you’ve ever had. Now this is not a hard one. My worst classmate was Aaron Woolbright. I met him the first day I came to the Academy. Dorian dropped me off with Mr. Lance in the boys dormitory and told me he’d be back first thing…

Admirable Classmates?

Write about one of the most admirable classmates or coworkers you’ve ever had. I’m not sure I had any admirable classmates. There wasn’t anyone I looked up to in school. Dylan was my first crush, but he was the jock sort of person and not exceptionally smart. He was a great swimmer. There was Madison,…

Sorry

No new post today – other than the Friday scene for the Last Phoenix. AJ completed the read through of the story, found a few inconsistencies and has corrected them, there are still many more scenes to go and a lot more grammar and minor editing to do. Needless to say it’s not even close…

Before the Storm – Appointment

I headed to the Infirmary instead to meet with my so-called Progeny Program Agent. The Infirmary was where Venatori went to get patched up. It was also where research was done and supernatural creatures could come for their ailments. But it held other offices that medical professionals were needed among the Venatori including therapists which…

Squat

I could go into exercise and my health nut ways, but I’m not. Going to take another route – diddly-squat! As in I know nothing about the real world. I never went to school like a normal human child. School consisted of learning how to do magic, the basics of human life, things like reading,…

Sound

One of the greatest things about living where I live is the fact that I have nearly anything I want with in easy driving distance. I want to go skiing – drive up north a few hours and there you go. Want the beach, a few hours to the Hamptons or the Long Island Sound….

Expectations

It’s Valentine’s Day. What do I plan on doing? I have no expectations. Technically this is my first Valentine’s day where I actually had a significant other. Someone to share with. Normally it was just another day – if it fell on Friday or Saturday I’d go party, if it fell during the week I…

Before the Storm – Unexpected Text

We still had plenty of time before the bar even opened. It was still early in the morning. We’d left the Archives and Walker headed straight for the elevator. “So what time do you want to hit the Ugly Dog Saloon? Google says they don’t open till 5pm. And that’s a little early for me.”…
