“Lina. Lina, if you want a shower before you save the world, you should get up now. Did you know your mother’s power includes a back room to a tent with a full bath?”
Lina blinked up at Jackson and stifled a yawn. “Shower,” she agreed. “Clothes?”
“Your mom brought some, here.” He handed her a pile of clothes. She stared at them blearily for a moment before blinking a couple times. “They’re… These are clothes I like.”
“I negotiated a couple times. The rest of us’ve been up for almost an hour,” he added. “You’ve still got time to shower and eat a good breakfast and stuff, but you have to get up now.”
“Getting up, getting up,” she muttered, and followed action to words and got up. “So I’m going to save the world dressed like a high school student. Instead of…” She had been confused when her mother had insisted on her bringing a couple of her “job interview and internship” outfits camping, but she could bet —
“Skirt suit with power pumps. Kept the necklace, though; and it’s high school professional student, you have to admit. Not ripped jeans and a band t-shirt.”
“The only band t-shirt I own I won in a bet from another kid who stole it from a concert. I mean, do you—?”
Please note: there are two chapters after “in which they stop kissing…” which have been deprecated. This re-write begins from Amrit and Mieve ending up in bed.
This is a prequel to the commission, more or less: @Momerath@wandering.shop commissioned me to write another chapter of Beekeeper, and in order to do that, I needed to go back and fix the spot where I’d stalled.
Where I’d stalled Three Years Ago.
This chapter mentions sex and involves two people being naked and intimate but in a mainly fade-to-black way; there is no on-screen sex.
Content warning: a great deal of discussion of body modification, including some described.
So I was talking to @email@example.com regarding their new tongue-split modification. They said some stuff and I said some stuff and then we were talking about how great the tongue is and, ahem.
The green-haired person in this story is not meant to be @Root; they are simply a person who had a similar idea.
Also: Tír na Cali setting, but the only setting warning required is that mentioned above.
“I want my whole body to be a tongue muscle.”
The person in front of Senne had green hair – very green, very well done – three piercings, two tattoos, and an energy like they were going to vibrate out of the room from excitement any moment now. Continue reading →
This story started as a dream. 38,000 words in, it is finally past the part I dreamed.
What can I say? I dream big.
It’s a week before school starts. Lina’s parents have dragged her to a meetup on a hilltop campsite, filled with rich people acting weirdly. Some of them are even wearing robes, and not, say, bathrobes or Hugh Hefner smoking jackets. On top of that, Lina’s discovered that she can make force fields if she concentrates —
and somehow her mother pulled a whole (small) house out of a suitcase.
Lina laughed in the face of the Organization’s leader, making him take a step backwards.
“That’s really impressive.” She grinned at him, because magic was real. “I mean it. How many people know?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. Araceli, how did you raise such a rude child?”
“I don’t think she’s rude at all, Manfield. I do believe that she has a valid question. How many people do know?”
“Do you have any idea what she’s talking about, because I certainly do not.” He huffed a little bit, but Lina could feel the way his power was pushing at her, trying to get her to shut up and to submit, to agree to everything he wanted.Continue reading →
Once again I asked for prompts on the FediVerse; this one is from @Teryl_Pacieco@mastodon.social
Content warning: intoxication.
“I’m just saying, I’m just saying. I’m just saying.”
Effie stared at her hand for a moment before aiming an accusatory glance at Will. “What – what did you put in my drink?”
Will put up both hands. “I swear, I swear, it was just what you asked for. It’s a jack and coke with a big twist of cherry syrup, that’s it. Same thing I made for you three weeks ago.”
On the other couch, Selene and Drick were giggling, not a look that was all that good on Drick. “It’s not the drink. It’s not, because I’m drinking straight tonic from the bottle.” Selene held up her bottle. “And it’s thus not Will.” Continue reading →
A sensation washed over her, a feeling like the whole land was laid out in front of her.
She’d thought of it like a big line, not all that wide, maybe the distance one could walk in a few minutes.
In front of her, the land spread out for days in all directions.
Malina gasped. “It’s huge.” No, it was more than huge. “It’s – it’s impossible. There’s not that much land on the whole continent. There’s not that much land in one place in the whole world.”
“There never was.” The cat’s voice sounded as if it was coming from a very long way away. “There never was, and yet there always has been. Forever and ever, and never, that’s the way of this place.” Continue reading →
