The Crossroads Chapter 5 TG
Tara bounded ahead of the others up some stone steps. “Come on guys! We’re almost there!”
Suddenly, she stopped at a large pair of wooden doors. The others caught up.
“We’re here,” she said and walked towards the doors.
Helena gasped. “It’s like a literal winter wonderland…”
“Yeah,” said Tara as she entered the door and snow began to fall on her. “It’s all the fun of snow without the cold! There’s a snow ball fight going on in there all the time with snow castles and everything!”
“I never knew about this place…” said Gloria as she stepped inside and scooped up a handful of snow. “Tara’s right! The snow isn’t cold…it’s just kind of like a room temperature…”
Arjuma ran to a pile of snow and immediately began making a snow angel.
“Didn’t you have enough water at the pool,” Allison asked her.
“Snow is different!

Helena scratched her head. “Well that’s weird. Not like him…er her to go running off like that.”
Ally shrugged.
“Oh well,” said Allison. “I guess it’s just the four of us.”
“Don’t hang around on my account,” said Helena. “If you have other things to do then go ahead.”
“I have nowhere else to be,” said Allison.
“I’ll stick around too,” Tara added.
“Sorry to disappoint but I’m going to have to leave you,” Ally said.
She turned to walk away but then turned back and smiled. “I’m sure we’ll meet again soon, Helena!”
“What would you like to see,” asked Allison once they all waved good bye to Ally.
“Or do” added Tara.
Helena thought for a moment. “Is there a zoo or something around? I’ll bet there are some animals I’ve never seen if there is one. I mean if this is some kind of multidimensional meet

The Crossroads Part 3 TG
The inside was a like any number of bathhouse as seen in movies and anime. Despite the nature of the waters that lay within the outside was almost boring. They took their clothes off and grabbed towels without incident. When they arrived at the hot spring proper it was appropriately covered in steam just as one would expect but in the middle was a large rock. The rock was connected to land by way of several stones and as the water deepened, stone pillars that almost divided the two halves of the large spring.
“Hello,” said a figure sitting on the rock. “Going in to the water? It’s nice and warm today.”
“Uh, yeah,” Kevin said. He squinted into the steam but wasn’t quite able to make out if the figure was a man or a woman. “We’re going to hop in.”
Hans nodded and stuck a toe into the water and then his foot.
“Brave souls,” said the voice. “Well if I can be of service to you then let me know. The water is

They all turned and standing there was a short girl with very long magenta hair. Hans tilted his head curiously. Kevin backed away a step or two. Jamie rolled her eyes.
“So, you have brought more men who must have heard of The Great Katsumi and have brought them to come beg and grovel for mercy,” said the girl. “Well you shall find none here!” She slashed her arm, index finger extended at them.
Kevin looked to Jamie and Tara for a translation. She shrugged. Tara giggled.
“You are a curious little thing aren’t you,” asked Hans. He towered over the slight girl. Yet somehow her presence dwarfed them all. The fire in her emerald green eyes somehow blazed even hotter when he spoke.
Katsumi walked right up to him and glared directly into his face. “The only thing I’m curious about is how I’m going to turn you and your friend into cute girls,” she declared. “You will face justice at my hands!” She clenched a fist in

The Crossroads
The rocks had formed a sort of natural staircase. Kevin climbed it even though it was quite steep and treacherous. His friend Hans was right behind him all the way. What Hans lacked in raw intelligence, he more than made up for it in loyalty, physicality, and empathy. Not that Hans was unintelligent but he had more street smarts than book smarts. Kevin was the opposite, although no slouch in the strength department, and their unlikely friendship was solidified over the years in their adventures around the world. They stopped for a rest.
“No signs of bodies yet,” said Hans cheerfully.
“Yeah, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing,” said Kevin. “If we’re going to find out the deal with all of these disappearances in the area then we’re going to need some kind of evidence. But I haven’t seen anything. Not even a broken carabiner. It doesn’t seem possible.”
“Don’t worry,” Hans said.

The Mystery of th Fingerprints Chapters 3 and 4 TG
Chapter 3
As I waited for the cops I began to look at the room more carefully. I had to figure out how the body ended up in the vent. Could someone have gotten a ladder in and out of the building without anyone knowing? Considering how stoned people are around here that might actually be possible. But still it would be difficult. What if they stacked found items up? Then they could just bury them in the garbage that seems pervasive in this room. But could they find items that are strong enough to support the weight of two people. And on that subject…the murderer must have been at least somewhat strong to be able to life a body into the air vent and jam it in there.
I walked around the room but mostly the room seemed to be filled with garbage and old furniture. There were dressers missing drawers. Some of the tables that had missing legs had replacements made of found items like golf clubs or baseball bats. One card table had a leg that was made of welded together soda and beer ca

For Love of the Cake Chapter 15 TG-GB
As we laid out a more detailed plan we began to all feel more confident. Cornering Jessica’s grandmother seemed like it was our best shot. If not we would die horribly and it wouldn’t matter anyways.
“We need some kind of leverage,” said Tim. “Maybe we should set up some kind of timed e-mail or something that sends out information about magic to everyone on the internet if we don’t shut it off…you know like in the movies.”
I shook my head, smiling. “As much as I love a good movie plan does anyone here actually have the ability to do something like that,” I asked.
No one spoke up.
“Well let’s just go with our initial plan to fake it,” said Natalie. “Should we leave tomorrow or wait a few days to rest up?”
“I don’t think that we should put my family in anymore danger,” I said. “We’ll leave tomorrow morning.”
“You’re the boss,” said Yolanda.

For Love of the Cake Ch. 14 TG-GB
Chapter 14
Before I could formulate any kind of plan we were outside the gates of my childhood home. I stood at the call box outside the gate. Waiting to press the button knowing there were cameras on me and my friends. Someone was always watching. I was stalling. I stood there with my finger outstretched, hovering an inch from the button.
“Tom Wolfe says you can’t go home again,” said Tim.
“Shut up, Tim,” I responded.
“Well just get this over with,” said Yolanda. “What’s the worst that can happen? They call the cops and we are easily found by our pursuers.”
“That sounds pretty bad to me,” Natalie said.
“Just hit the damn button,” said Jessica.
I pressed the button and it buzzed.
“Hello,” a voice said. “We were wondering when you were going to press the button. What is it you want?”
“Tell your boss that Edgar has come home.”
I held my breath. Everyone held their breat

The Mystery of the Fingerprints Chapters 1 and 2
Chapter One
I sat at my desk waiting for my client. Ok Sally Kruger, 38, says her husband has been missing four months now, I thought going over my notes from our talk on the phone. She doesn’t know where he went. Says he wouldn’t cheat. Ha! What a saint this guy must have been. If you aren’t careful you’ll get cynical in this town. If you aren’t cynical in this town you won’t make it very far. His car was found at an address half way across the city. It was only found because a dead woman had been found on the top floor of the next door apartment building. They ran the plates in the area and got a hit from his car. Just not for the murder of the woman. Curious…could he have been involved? Coincidence? Maybe…but doubtful. Missing guy’s car next to a building with a dead woman inside? Sounds like something went wrong and he panicked and skipped town. Can’t make that assumption though. Missing person is Alvin Kruger,

Mysterious Union TG Chapter 4
We walked into the door. It was a common area where both boys and girls were present. All grouped off in their little cliques. Cliques are always a good sign. Nothing says friendly like the invisible walls they put up between people. There were two corridors on the left and right sides of the spacious room.
“This is obviously a common room for everyone to gather in,” said my guide. “On the left are the rooms for dudes and so obviously you’ll be staying in a room in the right hallway. I’m not sure which one yet though. Other teams are in other parts of the complex but we don’t know where."
“Oh, a complex is it? That’s just one step down from compound,” I said. “And we all know how much cults love those.”
He laughed again. “This isn’t a cult. We are educating ourselves to create a better future. You know how it is out there. The world is being polluted and wars are rampant. We need to protect what is ours and e

Mysterious Union Chapter 3
I’m not sure how long the flight took. I slept most of the time. Not much else to do really. I didn’t have a watch either so that made it difficult to really keep track. Some food would have been nice too once I got tired of sleeping but there didn’t seem to be any flight attendants. I pressed my button anyways hoping someone would come. Someone did come. The woman who wasn’t too happy before.
“Why am I not surprised,” she asked no one in particular.
“Because you’ve been jaded by your years on the job I expect,” I said in response. “Now if you would be so kind to take my order.”
“Your order?”
“Sure this is an airplane, right? In-flight meals are a part of the deal.”
I knew it wouldn’t be a good idea to antagonize these people. But it seems to be in my nature to cause people trouble. I can just sense what’s going to set a person off.  And if you have a talent like that what better

Sanctuary 1
At least they left me my coat, I thought deciding to look on the bright side of my situation.  And my pants. Rather nice of them after taking my horse, water, provisions, and my guns. I made my way across the hot dust bowl I call home. The glorious American West. "Go West, young man," they once said. My bare feet blistered, cracked, and broken scraped along the sand, rocks, and all the plant and animals leavings the desert had to offer.  I could see a town in the distance. I prayed it wasn’t a mirage. Ain’t sure how much more blood I have left to water the ground.
As I got closer to the town, I decided it was real. I sized it up.  I’ve been to a lot of towns. The world is full of them. Some are large and some are small. This one was somewhere in between.  It was expanding. You could see the frames for houses and other buildings that were being built. Finally I made it into the town proper. It was early so there were few people on the

For Love of the Cake Chapter 13 TG
The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes was Yolanda’s wrinkled face frowning at me.
“Alright kid?”
“What happened to me?”
“Side effect of the spell I did on you earlier I suspect. People react differently at different times. The adrenaline from all of that action probably delayed the effect. You’re exhausted.”
I could tell we were still in an erratically moving car. I had somehow been moved to the back and was slumped over facing Yolanda.
“How long was I out?”
“A few seconds, I guess,” said Natalie.
“Felt more like a few months,” I said as I moved to the only empty seat. If you were behind the car I was on the left most side.
“You were about to tell me where we were supposed to go,” said Jessica.
“And we really need some place to go,” added Tim who now occupied my former seat up front.
“How did I get back here,” I asked.
“Magic,” said everyone else at

Christina and the Cult
I guess I can't just drop something like "Cult Church" from my last story and NOT explain it.  So, I probably should elaborate.  When I was born, my parents became Born-Again Christians, and were part of this small Church.  It was a typical church, but it was what one would call "Nondenominational"… or it wasn't part of some big subgroup like Methodists, Baptists, Mormon, or whatever.  This church was more hardcore and took things WAY to serious.
It didn't start off as that.  It was more like a Pentecostal church at first, but felt restricted by it's rules.  The church didn't want a structure.  They wanted the spirit of God to move the sermon.  The pastor would prepare lessons, BUT sometimes if God spoke to him, he wouldn't talk about that.  Sometimes praise and worship would last the whole running time, and other times one song would be played.  It was very artsy-fartsy in that way.  
But while the chu

Hi how is everything going?
As professor Farnsworth said "Good news everyone!"…

It seems that BBC is casting for "His Dark Materials" adaptation :)
On2XSecretProbation Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2018  Hobbyist Writer
Oh wow! That could be good...but there are a lot more roles to cast...and why are they getting Miranda to play Lee Scoresby when Sam Elliot is still around? I wonder who else they'll cast...
Luftritter01 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Sam Eliott was the perfect cast for Scoresby, however he is 73 now and I don't know how is his health. And the role is physically demanding, I suppose that is why they decided to recast him.
