Challenge #03963-J311: One Fatal Flaw

They pretended to put shackles on Wraithvine's wrists, prodding him at spearpoint, they ordered him fiercely to move away from the camps toward a cave with metal bars where prisoners were being kept. Their leader smirking at the wizard. They grabbed Wraithvine's ear roughly to stop hir just outside the cave, holding them there as the leader unlocked the cave so their subordinate could shove them inside. A tiny key secretly slipped inside Wraithvine's pockets, and the whisper "sorry, please, save them." Before the door was slammed shut. -- Anon Guest

Prisoners never look their best. Prisoners of war, even less so. Their enemy, after all, has no motivation to care for their wellbeing at all. In fact, they often have little motivation to keep them alive. Wraithvine knew this before he was shoved past the iron bars and threatened further along the packed dirt between shanty shelters.

Craters and scorched ground indicated the range of the spells from the casters up in the watchtowers.

They'd roughly sheared hir hair off for hygeine, taken away all hir belongings for security. Left Wraithvine with nothing but a thin pair of trews and what could pass as a shirt in a charitable light. Everyone else here was dressed in a similar fashion. Everyone but Wraithvine was a member of the Unwelcome Peoples.

Challenge #03736-J083: Hateful Consequences

A magic user abuses their gifts. They are young and acting stupidly. They are taught a harsh lesson in being responsible for their own actions. -- Anon Guest

The thing with being inherently magical is that one can cause a lot of trouble with simple mageworks. The ability to conjure sounds, surface-level illusions, or small and temporary objects creates a great deal of opportunities.

Many opportunities to do good. Or many opportunities to create mischief.

Sanborn had taken a misliking to the

Challenge #03668-J015: Unjustly Underestimated

Valuing strength above all, she saw no worth in me. —————————— “It’s ok dear let mama carry the groceries.” -- Anon Guest

Life is long, and full of struggles. There are many mountains to climb in the span of a lifetime, and I shall do many great deeds. This, I know in my heart of hearts. You may call me prideful, but I name myself 'motivated'.

You, who scoff and sneer at me. You, who judge me by my size. You, who

George Zimmerman not guilty

This shit? Right there?

This is why the human race is considered insane.

When a white man can choose to carry a weapon and follow an unarmed black kid down and shoot him while on the phone to emergency services and still get away with it because he’s white

While a black woman goes to jail for shooting nobody as a warning whilst attempting to defend herself from an abusive spouse…

I’m just about done with

Well, this sucks.

I got a court order today. Delivered into my hand. Specifically into the hand of [and I’m quoting the dude who was reading off a script] “the InterNutter who claims to have written a work entitled ‘Misfits’, lately to appear in Google Drive?”

It was a Cease and Desist from Little, Brown Books in general and Stephanie Meyer in particular.

Seems my fic bears an astonishing resemblance to Ms Meyer’s latest series to come

On Oakland

So, last night I found out fascism was alive and well and living in the Oakland PD.

As a concerned cogniscent being, I went searching for news. Livestreams, anything that was happening that wasn’t being blocked, DOS'ed, or removed.

My 10YO son came shoulder-surfing and asked what was going on.

I had to explain what was happening in America right that moment. I showed him swarms of police decked out in riot gear for a couple of guys singing and
