img_0862

I’d like to thank Rudra Makwana over at Tinte for nominating me for this award. It’s a great way to start of the year I think.

As always here are the rules:

  1. Create a new post thanking the person who nominated you, link their blog. Include award graphic.
  2. Answer the questions provided.
  3. Make a new set of 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
  4. Nominate 5-10 recently followed bloggers and share your post with them so they see it.

My Answers:

  1. What inspires you as a writer?
    I’ll answer for AJ since I’m forlorn on this subject. AJ is inspired by me. Actually I was an accident. AJ loves to write has for ages. She’s been writing posts for role playing games for a long time. I’d give you the year but then you might think AJ is old or something. AJ is inspired by others. Loves to write off of someone else’s character or reaction to something. Give her one person who says this is awesome and she’ll keep writing for you.
  2. What is the most fascinating thing about being a blog writer?
    All the people you need around the world. So many different cultures and ideas. It’s a big ass world
  3. What’s the one thing that transformed your life?
    I’m going to answer as me. The one thing that transformed my life was my mother calling me a monster. It set the tone for the remainder of my life. From them on out I did/do everything in my power to not be that monster.
  4. What makes a good content? How do you know if a piece of writing is doing well?
    I’m going to shrug to this. I don’t write here for the masses to be happy. I keep this blog because it lets me have a place to play so AJ can let me out. If I don’t get out to play I make a mess of the rest of AJ’s life. AJ writes to keep her sanity. So we really don’t know if what we do is good. You are the judge of that, you keep coming back so it has to at least appeal enough to dismiss the typos and the grammar and everything else that’s wrong with these posts of mine
  5. What genre books you like and why ?
    I like supernatural urban fantasy books. Cause it’s what I do for a living. Those are also AJ’s go to right now but she also likes fantasy and romance and drama.
  6. What do you usually write about on your blog?
    I ramble. Whatever comes to mind. AJ also posts my on going story which is in it’s fifth book and the close of the Ascendant arc. We aren’t sure if we’ll keep up with the rewrites here as usual if you want to watch it all unfold I’d love to know.
  7. What should be the ideal length of the content?
    Depends on the content. I typically get you 200 to 400 words of me rambling. AJ tries to keep story scenes under a 1000 words but it doesn’t always happen
  8. What is the one trait that makes you different from everyone?
    I’m a fictional character! I’ve found very few blogs that take on the persona of a fictional character. It seemed to be a faux-pa. But I’m not going anywhere. AJ enjoys writing as me in this fashion so I’m her #1 marketing tool
  9. What are some of the things that makes you confident ?
    My confidence is all a mask. I’m not. But you didn’t hear that from me!
  10. What your posts are based on? Are they based on your emotions or they are trying to give a social message to a reader? Also share your favorite blog posts.
    All of my posts are based on my fictional life, the stories AJ is writing or just my general personality. They are how I feel as a character about being a character about things I have to share. Some of my favorite posts, I’ll list the below this answer.

Accidents Happen

I search through every energy signature that was a turned wolf in the city spiraling outwards from central park. Most that had shifted with the new moon were curled up with their families happily. I didn’t even need to disturb them. Ant had agreed with his emphatic connection as it were that everything was at peace as we stood outside.

Matt called while we walked to the next signature in my head. “Dee and Sage aren’t around Chris and I got in alright.”

I nodded but knew he couldn’t see it. “That’s good. I might not make it home until lat in the morning. I have a lot more turned were’s to look into right now. Make sure everyone is fed when you wake up alright?”

“Of course, Nox. Be safe.”

“I will. You too.” And we hung up the phone.

Ant added, “He’ll take care of them.”

I looked at Ant. “I know.”

We walked around New York until the sun was up in the sky. It was barely peaking over the edge but Ant needed to go. “I’ll be fine.” I told him and he looked at me with skepticism. “Send someone to me, Darwynn maybe. I’ll be fine.”

Ant sighed. “I have no choice you need to find this boy. If it’s not too late already.”

“I’ll be home soon. I promise.”

Ant nodded. “I’ll send Darwynn out if you aren’t back by 8 am.”

“Okay.” I said. “I’ll be fine Ant.”

“You are Regnans. I will always worry. If something happens to you, a lot more is at stake.”

“Yeah yeah yeah.” I said and started walking the direction we’d been going leaving Ant in the shadow he’d taken refuge in. I felt him jump from close by to far away as he was back at home. He’d take Morana off to bed and they’d slumber the day away.”

Two more signatures and at the third I knew things were wrong. I walked slowly with a fireball held in the ether while I walked calmly into the alley.

It was a horrific sight. I threw up a veil to hide the scene from the growing light. There was blood everywhere. A girl was cowering in the corner wedged between a dumpster and the wall. I walked over to her slowly. Her eyes were hazy as she looked up at me. “Don’t hurt him.” She pleaded.

“Are you a friend of Rob’s?” I asked.

Her eyes grew wide and she nodded slowly. “Do you know where he is?”

She shook her head. “He didn’t mean to hurt me. I had him calm and then the sun rose.”

“What’s your name?”

“Shelly.” She blinked at me and I could see her fading, “Shelly Abernathy.”

“His girlfriend.” I nodded. “I’m Nox. Did he bite or scratch you?”

She nodded. “He didn’t mean to.”

“Are you a therian?” I asked.

“No. But I know what he is.”

“Alright. I need to get you to a medical facility and put you under observation.”

She nodded. “Don’t hurt him.” She pleaded again.

“I won’t. I promise. I’m here to find him and take him someplace safe.”

Shelly nodded. “He’ll have changed back now that the suns all the way back up.”

“I know. I’ll find him. But lets get you looked at.”

I picked her up and she wrapped her arms around me. I carried her to the Night Life building and the infirmary there. Before I got there my phone rang and I answered, “Hello?”

“Nox. I just wanted to let you know. The boys and Chris were playing in the rafters. Matt was showing off and fell.”

“Is he alright?” I asked.

Jin spoke softly, “It looked worse than it was. Matt has a pretty big gash that is healing but…”

“But what?” I asked.

“Andrew showed up just before breakfast with flowers and chocolate for Matt and he’s here. If it were just Chris he could just heal up naturally and make a joke of it. Now the two of them are trying to fix him up without showing Andrew that he’s already healed.”

I nodded. “I’m on my way back now. Keep it covered and we’ll figure something out.”

Jin agreed and hung up the phone quickly to tend to Matt. I wondered where Sage and Dee where. Probably wrapped up in each other as usual. I lamented to myself, “If it’s not one thing it’s another.”

Shelly hugged me tighter. “Everything will be alright.”

I nodded. “I know.” And hugged her back in my arms.
