Passport

I have never been out of the United States. I suppose I would need a passport to do that, but when you are friends with a shadow walking Vampire who was born in Italy 800 plus years ago I guess I could go anywhere in the world I wanted. Ant travels all around the world…

Camp Starts Tomorrow

Tomorrow will start a month long adventure. So I figured I’d better let you in on the basics before AJ starts telling the story. Daily Prompt may be included into posts if the topic fits where the story is at on that present moment. Hopefully I can wrangle it in so I can keep the…

A Big Mess – Little Dragon

I watched him walk back towards the train station. He turned around twice before he turned the corner. I waved at him each time and when he disappeared around the corner. Once inside, I headed up the stairs, taking them two at a time. My breathing was elevated, but it was nothing I wasn’t used…

Fortune is Family

For years the thing I wanted most was family. What I needed most was family. But I neither got what I wanted, nor did I realize it was truly in my power to do something about it. Jace has always been like a brother to me. He was my tie to life when we were…

Expanding my “Territory”

I already covered the territories of New York Cities supernatural creatures in Lovingly so I won’t get into that again. Instead I want to talk a little about an initiative I am (well AJ mostly) doing which includes expanding my territory so to speak. More like I’m trying to pull in more readers. Not that…

Alchemy

Today’s prompt really didn’t call to me. Magic potions – cure alls – the elixir of life. Not really soemthing I have much to say about. However definition #3 at dictionary.com did an alchemic preparation formerly believed to be capable of transmuting base metals into gold. My original creation was a channeler for a role…

A Big Mess – Childhood Room

Sage’s bedroom tour lasted all of five minutes. It was unchanged from his youth. An archaic computer was sitting on the desk. There were pictures of his friends pinned to the corkboard above his desk. I recognized them from the club though I couldn’t tell you their names. But I remembered the girl with the…

Human Side of the Family

I was still processing the fact that Margo was a dragon and that I had a twin sister who she had killed. I was still processing the idea that I was considered powerful by the dragon’s council. That fact alone would send anyone reeling. I however was grateful that Dorian had made me stay away…

Born to the Purple

I could have gone with purple with rage, but that really didn’t define anything new in my life, nor do I think I’m an angry person. Sure I’ve been pissed off and angry – who hasn’t. But it’s not something I can go on about. However the other idiom – born to the purple this…

Omnipotent Narration

AJ doesn’t like writing in omnipotent pov but here is the first time Sage and I met in that PoV. Aspect catered to nearly every type of club goer. There was loud music playing throughout the darkened club, multi-colored strobe lights shining around the dance floor. The bar was fully stocked with bartenders who knew…

The First Meeting

Clubbing was not something Sage did often. It wasn’t even something he wanted to do, but Sasha and Bryan had dragged him out for Alice’s birthday – she was turning 21 and instead of planning a big birthday bash Sasha was dragging the four of them out to go club hopping. Thankfully Sage didn’t have…

A Player

Since I came into my own I’ve never had a true relationship. I have friends. I don’t have many, and I don’t have family to speak of – at least not of blood. True now I do have blood relatives. I have Jace and Dorian. They are my family and my friends. But until recently…

Hard Being Ordinary

This is so not a word I would use for my life, or myself. Hell I wouldn’t even describe my human boyfriend as ordinary in comparison. His family on the other side is. I’m not talking his immediate family – but his father’s family is as ‘ordinary’ as they come. This is not a slight…

Conspiracy – Pack Ties

I took his hand, and we walked out of the diner with a wave to Bonnie. It was a short walk to the train station and we went two stops down before switching trains and heading into another part of town. Everyone knew the City was broken up into territories. What the humans didn’t know…

Symptom

AJ wrote about the first time I met Dorian and why I met him. It’s from the point of view of my five year old self. I’m gonna tell you what I remember from that day from my adult perspective. The symptoms of my ability were volatile. As I said I was five. It was…

Acceptance

Coming later in The Last Phoenix a scene where Sage and I have a conversation about what I would do if I had to live a human life. I won’t go on about the scene, but I have given it a lot of thought. If I had to start a new life as a human,…

Minimal

I have very minimal taste. I like things clean and simple and my apartment is that to a “T”. I’ve actually written a post about it before. I thought AJ had a floor plan and I know we have a good share of the interior of it picked out which is described in the post…

Conspiracy – Breakfast Date

We walked through the halls hand in hand. Sage headed for the elevator and I followed him a step behind him. He pressed the button and then he squeezed my hand, “What’s bothering you?” I grinned. “Is it that obvious?” “You are trembling.” “Afraid of heights. This elevator is the worst for my fears. But…

The Last Phoenix

AJ finished the read through tonight while the girls were at karate. So I’m offering free downloads of this draft in digital format. This is in preparation for April’s Camp NaNoWriMo where I’ll be posting here daily with the next story arc in an experimental format with twitter and instagram and blog posts to tell…

Label

I dislike labels. Well not really labels – I hate stereotypes. Being what I am, it has many different levels of meaning to me. I am half human among full Venatori. We aren’t technically our own race, but they label us Minorem – or lesser Venatori, because technically all Venatori are mostly human since we…
