Challenge #03738-J085: Gently Pressed to Service

Wraithvine, along with hir apprentice, Gikka, and hir cat, walk into a city that has recently suffered a major natural disaster. Instead of greetings, the group is pressed into service as people are rushing around trying to treat the injured, rescue the trapped, and save as many lives as possible. The guard knew it was rude, but this was an emergency. -- Anon Guest

"You lot! You're walking! Get over here and help. A Kobold! Wonderful! Please, the biggest need is this way."

They knew there was trouble, having been woken up by a rumbling of the earth. The fact that a Kobold was greeted with joy was a dead give-away. Pondermore snagged a different Watchmember and said, "You need heavy things moved. Show me where."

She let them lead. As did Wraithvine and Strodius. While magic couldn't solve every problem, it certainly made a lot of them less. Pressing wheat fresh from the fields into loaves of aromatic bread for the survivors. Lifting, moving, or re-shaping earth to save those trapped under the rubble, making ghostly hands to give out blankets or beverages to those rescued.

They say that you have to be desperate to crash-land on a Pax Humanis sanctuary. It is, after all, a world full of killers. For interesting values of 'full'.

Most of the planet is wilderness. Empty of intelligent life.

The Fittleton Driver was desperate. They tried for a soft landing,

Challenge #01686-D225: Emergency!

Emergency Personnel are trained in response measures so that when something really bad happens, the Training kicks in and they work on auto-pilot till their brain gets over the shock. -- Anon Guest

In an emergency, it's easy to tell the trained personnel from the civilians. The civilians are the ones busy panicking, screaming, running around and generally being useless. It's the job of emergency personnel to wrangle the runners whilst dealing with the problem that caused the upset in the first

Home again, home again, and boy, are we grateful. It takes a time to get away from it all to appreciate what you have.

But of course, it wouldn't be a family holiday without a family disaster. Chaos got the run-abouts while waiting in the Adelaide airport, tripped over Mayhem, and bumped a front tooth. Grandma insists that Chaos has broken her tooth and it's going to end in disaster. And won't shut up about the dental disaster that she calls key

So I took my laptop and my novel-in-progress with me on a grand adventure, this afternoon.

Said adventure involved writing two more pages and some damn good stuff.

But when I got it home… the laptop won’t work.

It has power. It was working just fine when I shut it the last time. It just won’t. Turn. On.

And I need those two pages, dammit!

Are there any Mac experts out there who can help me? I
