So... I had planned for this post to be the last Guardians of Allura (I going to refere to this as GoA from now on) short story, but it has not been written yet. So this is going to be an update post.
First, I did Camp Nano last month. I did not reach my goal this time, but was able to give a bit of plot to the story (that will remain secret til it's done).  My writing goals for this month are to edit White Foot, and give it to some people to read. And to finish a short story I was supposed to write last month.
Second, I have an idea for this blog that I'm playing around with, I have not officially decided if I'll do it yet.
And lastly, I am terrible at coming up with things to write, so that all.

Guardians of Allura, After the Beginning

Here's another short story. This one comes after Guardians of Allura #1 and before #2. I wrote this because someone I know keeps asking about this series, particularly these characters, so til I write the books here you go.
Faith peeked in; Midnight sat staring into the fire in the centre of the room. The burning red flame danced within its ice crystal prison and lit the cave with a blue light."Midnight." Faith called.The black werewolf turned to her with a rustle of wings. "Yes?""I going to the village, would you like to come?" She asked.Midnight rose and came to stand beside her in the entrance to the cave. "You know I have to watch the Door.""You’re always watching the Door, I'm sure you can leave it for a little while." Faith said brushing her furry wing against his.He looked at her and replied, "I made a promise and I must keep it."Faith sighed, "Fang." she called out.The young werewolf scrambled from th…

Guardians of Allura, A Short Story

It's been a while since I posted one of these, if you want to read the others here and here.
Willow was back in the garden again.The red roses and white lilies were arranged exactly as she remembered them. And in the centre of the garden was the huge oak, its leaves always red.Under the oak Alicia sat beside her on the bench."Willow," Alicia said to the young girl, "Do you think you can keep a secret?"Willow shifted on the bench and looked up at her, "Sure."Alicia drew a necklace from her pack. She held it up for Willow to see.A simple round Obsidian stone hung from the silver chain."This is a very special stone." Alicia explained as the stone twirled around though the air. "And I want you to look after it. But you must never show it to your Aunt or let her take it."Alicia dropped it into Willow's hand. "I won't." Willow replied staring at the stone."Alicia!" Ashera's voice echo through the garden.Wil…

Lest We Forget

So I know it's not April, but I needed something to post. So here is a flash fiction.

April 25thAt the end of the alley the metal soldier stood forgotten. He stared down the paved path, his arm raised in an eternal salute.The rust had crawled over his features, and a spider spun a web in the crook of his arm. An old dried bottlebrush wreath lay at his feet.If only someone remember.The old lady walked slowly down the road; a crown of rainbow flowers graced her head. She paused outside the cake shop. Something nagged at the edge of her mind. Finally, she grabbed it.April 25thShe hurried off and before long she stood infront of the metal soldier in the long-forgotten alley. She removed the flower crown from her head and replaced the dried wreath at his feet.And said three words.Three word that were engraved on the soldier’s pedestal.Three word that should never be forgotten."Lest We Forget."

A Reblog

This is a reblog fromA Need To Breathe.
I’ve been mulling over this post for a while and I finally decided to write it. (At least, if you’re reading this, I guess I did.) 😉May is food allergy awareness month, which is a nice thought for me. If new followers aren’t aware, I have a severe anaphylactic allergy to wheat. For the past twelve years, I’ve struggled with people not knowing enough about my allergy to keep me safe. Taking responsibility for myself and taking the precautions that I need to often leave me feeling hurt and frustrated.And that’s how I figured it out – I don’t like talking about food allergies.In the day-to-day, I don’t talk about them. They just . . . are what they are. I live with them and move on. I know the things I can do and can’t do, and that’s normal. I don’t remember living any other way.But there was a time when we lived differently. We could go out to eat at restaurants, we could share a meal with family at their house instead of ours. We could go to a po…
