The Dragon and the Doctor
Ryu was walking the halls of the Guardians' base, having never set foot inside before.  He held a letter in his hand regarding a meeting that he was required to attend.  It was Guardians orders.  He came to a door and slowly opened it.
Rebecca Weller was playing with her i-pad, chewing on her bubblegum and generally not watching where she was walking.  She hadn't notice that the door in front of her was opening without her touching it.  She pushed it as it opened away from her and plowed straight into Ryu.
He ran into the unknown person as she fell to the floor.  "Oh my, I'm so sorry Ma'am.  Are you alright?" Ryu asked as he offered her his hand her.
"Hey!  Why don't you watch where you're walking, you stup... id..." Rebecca looks up as see Ryu extending his hand to help her up.  She appeared to be a bit stunned at the handsome man and sheepishly stuck her hand out to accept his offer.

Split Decision
It was a slow day at the Guardians' communication center.  As always, Polygirl and several of her duplicates were milling about monitoring several screens observing different regions of Angel Falls.  A couple of others were tinkering with various mechanical devices of unknown origin.  FireBrandi was out on patrol leaving her friend to herself which was a rarity of late.
Frank Petrovich cautiously entered the room looking around nervously not really knowing what to expect.  The last time that he was here didn't end pleasantly for him.*  This time, however, it was going to end differently.  For today, he was bound and determined to ask Polygirl out on a date!
Frank looked at his hands as he tried to stop them from shaking.  It's been a while since he was out on a proper date and that didn't turn out well.  He took a deep breath and approached what appeared to be the main Polygirl. &

Power Outage Part 3
"Fourth time's the charm." Brandi commented to herself.  After the third time trying to put her plan into action failed she decided to update the old saying.  Her luck started out better.  She had gone back to the building where Dr Van stole her powers.  Much of the building had been damaged by fires, but the equipment that Dr Van had used was long gone.  Not much of a surprise there.  What was a pleasant surprise was the SUV was still there.  Undriveable because of the fire damage, but inside Brandi found the scanner that Van had briefly mentioned.  The heat had done some damage to it, but Brandi was able to get it working well enough to detect the energy signature of her powers for a limited range.
Three times since then Brandi had set her trap up in an area that Dr Van might attack, and each time the criminal had not come close enough.  This time luck was with her.  The scanner was si

Power Outage Part 2
Brandi sat in the Guardian's HQ, growing restless with the inaction.  Since stealing Brandi's powers, Dr Van has been staging random attacks around the city.  No doubt to lure other heroes into a similar trap.  No one was allowed to take her on alone, and preferably someone like General Bardak, Diamond, or Aurum Sol present as they have no powers to steal.  Van, however, was proving too slippery.  When it looked like backup would arrive soon she would flee, setting fires as she ran forcing the heroes to choose either to save people endangered by the fires or capture her.
Through all this Brandi has been going stir crazy.  She helped Polygirl in manufacturing high-powered extinguishers for the others to use, but now capturing Dr Van was up to everyone else.  She was left with nothing to do but sit and wait until someone hopefully captured Van.  Patience was not one of Brandi's virtues, especially when it was

Power Outage Part 1
FireBrandi kept her flames turned off as she followed the SUV from the air.  While she preferred a nice flashy entrance, she was very good at sneaking around unseen when needed.  This was one of those times.  
Someone had been stealing high tech lab equipment from several research labs and hospitals around the city.  Tonight they went too far, they took the genetic re sequencer from the university lab that Brandi worked at!  She loved that machine.  The glow-in-the-dark plants she made with it were very popular among the students.  Staking out the University labs the thief finally showed up again.  FireBrandi could have just burst in and catch them in the act, but at the risk of never recovering the stolen equipment.  Instead she decided to follow them back to whatever secret lab they are building.  Then it should be a simple matter to blast their doomsday device/monster/super-soldier wa

I have been deciding whether or not to write this on my dA journal or not but after seeing a few others, I have started typing.

Well... at approximately 5:05pm PT Tuesday (10/14/14), I lost my dear boy, best friend and companion. Baxter, was sent to the Rainbow Bridge by my vet, Dr. Wilson. He had mostly stopped eating the past month and had lost quite a bit of weight.  His bones were very pronounced when you petted him.  I'm not sure if this was related to his bladder tumor or not but when I took him to the park, he really didn't want to play with the other dogs or do much of anything.  I'm not sure how Emma, my dalmation/lab mix, will react to him not being around after ten years together.  We gave him quite a bit of food the past couple of days, all of his favorites (peanut butter & Milk Bones). He even cleaned up the floor in the kitchen before we left. He actually gained a pound from yesterday which makes me think that maybe I could've done something for him. I'm still mad at that vet hospital for denying me a more pervasive ultrasound to determine if he could've been operated upon for the tumor.

Baxter did have a scared look in his eyes as he watch the vet do the deed. Probably because of the needle in general he was sticking into his leg.

I'm sorry for rambling on various thoughts but I miss my boy. I will miss all the silly things he did like lay in front of the bathroom door so I would trip over him in the dark, rub his eyes on the walls and corners (:omg:), urinating over the same spot that Emma did just moments prior, always begging for food (just standing off to the side waiting for scraps), his bunny radar where he knew if a rabbit were just outside the house even if he was on the other side of the house -- (he could hear them somehow!),  following me around like he was my shadow (let there be no doubt, he was MY dog.. :D), rolling into your hair after you either colored or washed it (I've never seen a dog do that), his barking to let you know he needed food (Emma will just grab the dish and throw it at you), and his barking at dogs to either separate other dogs from "fighting" each other (playing) or to get them to run so he could chase. He used to chase along the little dogs along the fence at the park (the fence dogs).  There were many other things that made him uniquely Baxter.

We bought him at 3 years old in October 2004 as a companion for Emma when she reacted favorably to the puppies at Pet Smart. He was only at the store for an hour when we adopted him as we were on their call list for a new dog. He is a very lovable lug and although not nearly as smart as Emma, he always was very approachable and would lick your face if you let him.

Unfortunately he didn't quite get up to his 13th birthday (Nov 26) nor did he get one last romp in the snow. I was going to take him to Mt. Charleston for that last venture. I will also miss his plowing his face in the snow or water in the pool. I felt bad when we moved to Vegas away from the cold weather as he really loved that.

I have been taking a lot of pictures and videos of the last few days and I'll probably share some of them.

Tuesday was the part of owning a dog that I dislike the most.

Baxter, you'll be joining Bo and Mocha and your Bampa where you'll get plenty of walks, jumping on laps, chasing squirrels, and all the people food you want.

On a side note, when we went to say grace before we ate dinner and reflecting on the good fortune we had to have Baxter, Emma came in from outside, walked over to me and put her head under my hand as the blessing was said. As soon as it was finished, Emma turned around and walked outside once more. I know that my girl is a very smart dog but I'm speechless that this event occurred. God works in mysterious ways indeed.
