Fantiss Call - Segment 183
Both the Chavez and Stoneham children had buried one another in the large ball pit complex that was the centerpiece of the game room, and both Natalie and Xella relaxed in recliners as they watched them roughhouse.  
"Be sure to come up for air, kiddos!" Natalie called out, and Tad's head came popping up, grinning, "Havin' fun?"
"YEAH!" The boy squealed out, "This thing's DEEEEP!"
"Are your hatchmates even ztill in zere?" the kobold asked in her thick accent, still gazing in wonderment at the place before settling her focus back on the human child.  
"Yeah, Juan's down near the bottom and Riley's in the corner, I think she's commin' up r-"
"WRAAAAAAARRR!" The stoneham girl exploded out of the pit, scattering multi-colored balls everywhere, "I'M A DRAGON!  I'M GONNA EAT YOUUUU!   WRAAAAAAAAAAR!!!"  Xella laughed hard enough to tumble out of her lounge.  "You okay, lizard-lady?"  The Allwatcher got to her feet and put her hands on her hips

Fantiss Call - Segment 182
"This is like a date night," Ralph laughed, putting his feet up on the seat in front of him, "kids are playing in the basement...gonna have to check that out, too...eventually..."  Sherri lounged over one of the several sofa-seats with her boyfriend, and Mr. and Mrs. Clark relaxed right beside the Stoneham.  "Bunny, Vyn told me you made the potatoes," the gargoyle grinned, "before we go Sarah and I will need to snag that recipe off ya."
"We should get together like this more often," Ralph's wife added, "our kids were having a great time, and your son's been a wonderful host."  She looked around the 50-seat theater and shook her head.  "I can't believe this is in someone's house."  Jerry grabbed a handful of fresh popcorn and munched on it, nodding, which drew a dirty look from his wife.
"I agree," Mrs. Clark replied, "Jerry and I will need to make sure we take the time to visit more frequently..." her voice trailed off a bit.  Mrs. Stoneham frowned.

Fantiss Call - Segment 181
I would have never had this amount of solitude in my old place when I had even one guest over, but this felt pretty good.  People were doing their own thing, and I was getting some ‘me time’ in between the goings on.  My parents were sitting in the the theater next to a gargoyle, and I think a naga and a mage...NEVER thought that would happen in a million years.   I looked at the steak, chicken, and some of the other leftovers and began to think.  “I may need to ask Arnie to make a delivery to the police station.”
“I can do it if you want.”  I looked up to Mike, whose skin was wrinkled to the point where he resembled a giant smirking green raisin.  “I’m supposed to work the graveyard shift, anyway.”
“What on earth happened to you?” I asked, “For a while I thought you had disappeared and didn’t tell anyone.”  His body took on a rosy tint of embarrassment.

I don’t know when we lost the kids, but it had to have been somewhere between the mention of the video games and the soda fountain.  Liz and Matt followed them along.
“Do you mind if I watch over ze hatchlings, too?” Xella asked Natalie, “It’z been a vhile since I’ve babysat, but human younglings seem...most very energetic.”
“Girl, you’re part of this crazy clan now anyway,” my friend from our former workplace chattered back, “watch away, and by the way, those were some slick toys you gave ‘em!  Where did you find wands, anyway?”  The kobold stood up straighter, prouder.
“I made zem, myself, I specialize in vand construction, though most my efforts go toward defending our tribal home.”  The silver in her eyes seemed to glow in the dimmed light of the hallway, growing slightly brighter when she grinned.  “If you vish, I cun show you how to make your own.”

Fantiss Call - Segment 179
A few of the folks stayed behind to dry off and enjoy the cooling air as the sun sank below the mountains, but I had my dad, Xella, all four kids, and a flock of others around me as we walked through the kitchen.  “Don’t worry, we’ll have dessert in about an hour or two, and there’ll be popcorn and snacks in the theater...for those of you who want to take in a movie.”  I looked at the listings on the kitchen counter.  “I think Away and Upward! is the newest one they sent.”  All the kids squealed, and even Ralph’s eyes brightened.
“That comes out in theaters next week!” the gargoyle builder exclaimed.
“I’ve been waiting MONTHS to see that!” Sherri’s tail wagged furiously, “You got a preview copy of that?!?”
“I guess so,” I responded, “Arnie delivered it along with Trashcan Rhapsody: The Story of Mannil Lowe; it’s about the guy who foun

Fantiss Call - Segment 178
Dinner was going extremely well, and people were eating in shifts as they enjoyed the unusually warm January Arizona night.  Even I got into the heated pool and played a volleyball game as Ralph and my dad manned the grill.  My mom made drinks (both virgin for the kids and real stuff for us adulty-types).  I think after Xella got over the fact that I was treating her like another friend of mine, she really warmed up to the rest of the group.  Turns out she LOVES to swim and talk...sometimes both at once!  It was amazing to watch her flit around and get acquainted with everyone.  At times she would talk business, but then she would play with the kids and have fun with them.  I think I’ll enjoy most of the rest of the tribe too if they happen to be this outgoing.
“Look what the little dragon lady got us!”  Mariel and Riley both ran up to me with sticks that were glowing at their tips, “she got us magic wands just like

Fantiss Call - Segment 2013
My name is Vynson Clark, and the story you're about to be a witness to is an account of my life right before my 35th birthday and the events that followed it.
Like many of my former species, I didn’t really believe in The Fantiss Call until my best friend came knocking on my door, and he wasn’t wearing a fursuit.  After his Presidential Birthday, he would never need to dress up like a wolfen again.   What was particularly intriguing to me is that he didn’t mind this at all after it happened, but like me he was worried and nervous that everything would change...and it did, but his core being remained the same, and it gave me some comfort.
About two and a half years later, I was finding myself at the same crossroads; the changing of my age to that magical number that Mother Nature seemed to have arbitrarily picked to give a fifth of the human race a fresh start, a new life, a do-over whether we desired it or not.  
On the very minute of the 35th Anniversa

Fantiss Call - Meet Your Dragons
For such a little creature, and one of her supposed age, Xella's grip was incredibly strong, not that I couldn't have broken free, but something about this kobold just made you want to pay attention to her every word.  Perhaps that why she was an All-Watcher...but truth be told, that Dr. Ruth accent is just too cool coming out of her muzzle.  Also, the fact that she was incredibly resourceful added to her charm; it could have been something out of a Rockwell Painting:  A little scaly dog-thing leading a giant dragon, smiling as she has his hand in hers, and pulling a huge, lacquer-covered tome behind her in a little purple wagon...it was one of Nattie's kids who left it, but my Financial Officer commissioned the thing instead of using one of those floaty spells she sometimes utilizes.
"I'm really surprised at how little you know of the dragon types, Lord Vynson," Xella looked up to me with a smirk, "well, I suppose you really wouldn't know much given that your

I think I just found a sign...I was going through some old documents and papers from when I moved...and thinking about The Fantiss Call was making be particularly depressed...going through the few pictures I had of my mom out here got me to crying...rough night. I slumped against the bookcase and I felt some snapping noises...and there was something behind that bookcase.

Curiosity piqued I took EVERYTHING out of the bookcase and maneuvered it out of the closet...nearly wrenched my back doing so.

and found binders:

FANTISS CALL: EPISODES 1 - 3
FANTISS CALL: EPISODES 4 - 6
FANTISS CALL: SIDESHOTS AND PROFILES
FANTISS CALL: STORYLINE ROADMAP

The original story notes and plans...the ones I thought I lost nearly 5 years ago...or worse yet, destroyed. 

I will go to bed happy tonight...

You know, Vynson WOULD have clocked himself in the face with a book at one point or another...that made me chuckle.

In some respects I'm doing well...and in some others I've been absolutely struggling.  
Dealing with estate issues and grief...new job excitement and stresses, and helping out people where and when I can, because that's what I do.  

Dragons are like that, I suppose.   ^-^
