Someday
Someday someone will want to spend hours on end in laughter
Someday someone will want to feel the waves crashing around us
And taste the salt of the sea on my lips
Someday long fingers will reach out and find me
Someday the hand will not be forced
And the pull will be as irresistible as gravity
Someday someone will understand
Someday regret will wither on the vine
And the endless ache will disperse and shatter in the crisp, midnight air
Someday someone will find me worthy of flowers.

Molly Jones: Chapter 8 Mothers and Daughters
Molly and Morrigan reached the top of the stair well and found themselves in a hallway with two doors to the left, one in the center, and finally one to the right. Walking slowly, Molly stopped just outside of the first door to her left. Elf ears being what they were, she could faintly hear the soft sound of water, possibly in a tub. This was Zevran’s door. She knocked slightly; hearing nothing she then kneeled and peered into the keyhole.
The Witch raised an eyebrow. “What are you doing, you little perv?”
“Shuddup, Morrigan. I’m trying to hear.”
“While peering through the keyhole? Last time I checked people heard with their ears, not eyes.”
“I heard something break.”
Morrigan nodded. “I did too. But, it’s more likely than not that was the result of too much drink and heavy feet.”
“You’re probably right.”  Molly said this, but still tried the door. It was locked. “Alright, let

Molly Jones: Chapter 7 Tales From Before

They walked out of the Tower’s disarray into a clear night with a beautiful, dusky sky. Molly glanced to her right; there she spotted several benches facing out to Lake Calenhad. She motioned for the group to join her. Molly took her seat and Zevran sidled in closely next to her.
“Molly, why are we stopping here?” Alistair asked. “My tummy is rumbling. I haven’t eaten since yesterday.”
The elf shot her Warden counterpart a lethal glance. “I told you we have to wait for Wynne.”
“What do you mean, Molly? Doesn’t she live here?”
Morrigan let out an exasperated moan. “What Jones means is that preachy old schoolmarm has taken it upon herself to come with us.”
“Oh, Morrigan, can you try to find it in your tiny shrunken heart to be nice?” Molly asked, though it might as well have been a

With Love and Admiration to David Bowie and Jim Henson.

She woke to a cold, marble floor and a sick feeling in her stomach. Rising slowly from the ground, she looked up and realized that she was in some sort of marble palace. At every angle there were turrets and towers, brightly festooned by colorful banners and flags. It was a place out of a dream; the kind of dream that all little girls have of castles and heroes; it would have been beautiful had there not been a sickly, yellowing air to the place. Molly stood and then looked straight ahead. Standing before her was the man who started it all.
“Duncan?” she asked.
“Who else would I be, Molly?”
“But you’re dead,” she answered spitefully. And then she thought on it. If she could see him…“Wait, does that mean I’m dead too?”
“Not quite, though,

Day 39

Gah!" Julan shouted. Cold water in the face first thing in the morning left Julan feeling none too pleased. Tough. He staggered up and said, "Oh, I'm so tired all of sudden….maybe I should go to sleep. Don't worry about me, just leave me here and go on without me."
My rage boiled over at this point. I had told him previously we had an important (and very lucrative) job to do. "I'm going to make a few stops, but you better be up and ready to go or you can go without a trainer."
"Mephala, Annika! What's gotten in to you?"
"Maybe you ask Shani!" I said slamming the door. I left to see Hasphat, but really I would have made any excuse to leave. I was tired of the smell of alcohol that was wafting off his body. That scent brought back too much. I also needed to get ou

Week Three

From the golden shores of Ascadian Isles, I decided to journey down to Vivec, not to see the great city of Vvardenfell, but to take a boat.  Erica, who was my partner then subsequent cell mate when I resided in Anvil, swore that if she ever got out she would make her way home, back to Dagon Fel. Out of curiosity, and boredom with Nels, I decided to take a chance and see if she actually made it there. I also was looking for any way to put off the inevitable--Cosades.
The trip to was long and expensive, involving five boat transfers and an unpleasant stay in Khuul--thanks gods no lice. Upon reaching Dagon Fel, a small spit of a town with a few ruins surrounding it, I searched for Erica. Turns out she did make it back and was the proprietor, or actually one

Molly Jones: Chapter 5 A Gilded Cage
This Chapter is dedicated to my dear friend Laurie Mason who last month lost her long battle with the taint (i.e.cancer).
 
Fire rose high in the sky, brightly illuminating a star-filled night. From the boat, Molly could hear the shrieks of men and women coming from the Circle’s tower.  For a moment, all of them watched in a solemn silence from the dock until the quiet was broken by involuntary gasps as they heard the piercing scream of a woman who was falling out of the high tower to her certain death.
“Maybe now is not the time to approach these mages,” Zevran said. “I think we should come back…later, when the mages aren’t so…vertical. Perhaps when the flying lessons are done.”
“No, Zev,” Molly said. “We gotta go in there. We need them. But first I need to figure out who is going in.”
“Molly, we’re all going in,” Alistair answered. “If there are malificars and abominations

“This will not be easy,” Alistair said while peering down the long, narrow gangplank that led to the Arl’s barge. The barge, while perfect for a day on the lake, was proving most challenging in that no one could figure out how to get the crippled Qunari aboard. Looking back at Molly, he stated, “I don’t see how we’re going to get him on deck.”
“I don’t know why we’re taking him at all,” countered Morrigan, as she dropped the heavy leg she was holding. “We should have left him on the side of the road.”
“Morrigan!” Leliana shouted. “Sometimes I feel you should have had your tongue cut out at birth! Of course, we could not leave him on the road; he is badly hurt.”
“He would not have been so hurt if he had not challenged the Warden.”

Being a Consumer

Sun Mar 17, 2019, 11:29 AM
Welp, right now I am being a consumer rather than a creator. Also, deciding if my works are good enough to turn something else, though I have no idea of where I would begin with that. Not to offend any of her fans, but I'm not trying to follow E.L. James, or at least not her writing style--it's garbage (but exceedingly profitable). Jesus, the thought of that is painful. But I would like to do something profitable, that goes beyond the sheer joy of creating. 

Could I turn my works into something that goes beyond the fan-based? 

It's something I am seriously pondering.

Someday

Someday someone will want to spend hours on end in laughter
Someday someone will want to feel the waves crashing around us
And taste the salt of the sea on my lips

Someday long fingers will reach out and find me
Someday the hand will not be forced
And the pull will be as irresistible as gravity

Someday someone will understand
Someday regret will wither on the vine
And the endless ache will disperse and shatter in the crisp, midnight air

Someday someone will find me worthy of flowers.

I am currently going through a great deal. This is the first piece of creative work I have been able to conjure in about 8 months. It's not my norm, but some creativity is better than no creativity.

Ready To Start Writing Again

Sun May 20, 2018, 9:24 PM
Don't know what I am going to write yet. But it's coming. Going to try and add to the Molly Jones. Or at least write an ending chapter. 

Don't know what my next journey is yet. Might start writing something that isn't fan based. 

My first priority is to read all the fantastic entries at the Bards College Collaboration Competition. You can find them here: the-bards-college.deviantart.c…

Dad's finally out of the hospital. We have tons of people coming in and out of the home. But things are starting to come together. I am actually back on. I just really wish I could start writing again. I have had so much to deal with in the last three months that it's just sucked the creativity out of me. I still owe you guys that feature and I feel terrible about it.

Good to hear he's feeling better. Don't worry about the feature being delayed, family takes priority, and I know how stressful situations like this can be. Hope things improve for you, and if there's anything I can do to help, please let me know.
