Challenge #04162-K144: Help to All in Need

The human had helped nurse the very, very sick dragon back to health. The dragon'd had trouble laying her eggs and it'd taken a toll on her. They stayed to help the dragon, as did their family, and when the eggs hatched, the human and hir family helped the dragon raise their brood, so that all children, human and dragon, knew the love and warmth of a big family. -- Anon Guest

If you believe that all life is precious, truly and deeply, you act to help all life in its needs. Even though Slaine Dunne was a vegan, she went out of her way to secure healthy cattle to feed to her patient. Who happened to be a Dragon, still suffering the effects of a Draconic fever at the worst possible time.

Their eggs were by a steam vent, safely nested and turned four times a day. They would hatch, soon. Tiny babies that would have their own special needs.

Slaine smeared sides of meat and organs with herbs, muttering prayers for the souls of the animals that had given their lives to support another. She set aside the softer parts for the babies that were due to hatch.

Challenge #04154-K136: Made to Care

I was built by the B'Nari to be extremely versatile. I care for those who are no longer able to care for themselves, or, due to birth or accident, have never been able to do so. It can be difficult, sometimes, I admit. But seeing my human smile as I help them through their day, and make their life so much easier, is very rewarding. -- Anon Guest

Challenge #04132-K114: Injured Ascendant

They were very sick, their body broken in ways that would never be able to recover by conventional means. Their family scraped together what funds they had to send them to the B'Nari, hearing they would help the poor and desperate for free. But the person was afraid.

"Will it... will it really be.. me? Or will I be dead and that... that body live on just thinking it's me? I don't want to die." -- Anon Guest

"You fear for your

Challenge #04099-K081: To Flourish and Grow

The real Wraithvine meets the fake, the mummer. And confronts them about the prisoner.

The real Waithvine sits with the prisoner to tell the truth of what happened, of their situation, of who their jailer was. And helps them to truly begin to heal.

[AN: I think the details of what Wraithvine did to the false one are left up to the imagination. It's way more terrifying that way.]

Challenge #04092-K074: Comfort and Succour

They awakened in an ICU drawer after a major accident required surgical intervention. However, they suffered claustrophobia. Their panicked, albeit weak, cries immediately alerted the medics. -- Anon Guest

[AN: Setting this in the early days of the ICU drawers, because systems are in place to detect distress before full consciousness is established]

For every problem, there is not a solution until it very much becomes a problem. Some solutions contain problems that can't be detected until somebody starts having one. Starting

Challenge #04053-K035: Help Where Possible

Wraithvine was deep in meditation when the humans shook hir roughly awake. Nearly dragging hir before ze could land. "Hurry, hurry, the cave-in was bad! No one's dead, but there's a lot of people badly hurt, we need you, NOW, my lord!" -- Anon Guest

"Not your lord," Wraithvine gently rubbed hir backside as the people dragged hir out and into the caverns. Where four teams of people were overwhelmed by the casualties at hand. This part of the area was stable.

Challenge #04025-K007: A Kinder Poison

A very elderly magic user has gotten a bit senile. Their grandchild begs Wraithvine to limit how much magic the elder can use so they're no longer a danger to themselves or others. -- Anon Guest

It's never nice to see a loved one fall to pieces. Watching Odasorin the Wonderous become lost in time and thereafter coming apart had not been something Aqirax had been willing to acknowledge until it got dangerous. After all, he loved his grandren[1]. And in

Challenge #04015-J362: The Bright Side of Severe Injury

They lost their legs in a wreck, honestly didn't remember the wreck, when they awakened in the alien's craft. Oddly, without pain. The first thing the Aliens asked, what did their feet look like so they could replace them? How kind...wait what?? -- Anon Guest

"My feet are badly engineered. Honestly, glad to be rid of them," Human Funz. "Ever heard of bone spurs? Fallen arches? Rheumatism?" He counted these off on his fingers. "I had nasty things happening below the

Wraithvine, Gikka, and Bibrid disguised as a a small imp enter a kingdom where runners are swiftly going through the cities looking for a strong healer to heal the princess. Unfortunately, the situation is dire as her injuries from the animal attack are infected and getting worse. Sadly, dealing with royals is something that terrifies the immortal healer.

Challenge #03976-J324: A Cup of Relief

One leaf is brought in a small, black box. Sweet and flavorful, it has but one purpose. They are suffering. The leaf is placed in water, the tea is made. Their suffering will be alleviated and they will sleep, painlessly, forever. They knew this when asking for the leaf. Anything was better than the pain.

Challenge #03934-J282: You're Allergic to WHAT?

The Havenworlders meet a human who's actually allergic to chocolate. Quite the rarity. -- Anon Guest

There's an allergy for everything. Even amongst those raised on the same planet as the thing. One might easily believe that this is not a great survival tactic. Especially when the thing is really, really popular.

It can lead to some interesting times.

Solo Ships' Humans encounter no problems when it comes to curating their environment. They frequently have isolated kitchens in order to keep their

Challenge #03921-J269: Optimal Performance Issues

The human had trouble staying on task. They were constantly distracted or would set their work aside "just a moment," and end up having to be reminded, albeit gently, of the work they still had to do.

(ADHD is more common than people think.) -- Anon Guest

[AN: I don't have ADHD, but I do a remarkable impersonation thereof. I am willing to be wrong about this and therefore welcome any input with ADHD people who know the experience better than I]

Monday, Doctor's and Debts

It's going to cost us money we don't have yet before I even get my medication. This sucks.

Why the FUCK do we keep trying to be USA Lite?

Sigh.

I am watching the clock and consider myself ready to launch. I shall be doing the biggest offering of the day in the afternoon.

...at least they aren't making us pay to go into the doctor. Only after we get out. [Don't give them ideas dangit]

I can explain we have money

Ze had made a camp inside the abandoned house. A small fire and a kettle, and some special tea set to brewing.

"There's people suffering," pleaded Bibrid.

"There is time enough for tea," said Wraithvine. "You're dangerously close to panicking yourself into a conundrum, and

Challenge #03851-J199: The Wolf at the Door

InterNutter, you're right, this would make a good prompt.

Chain, still in therapy and being monitored by security, constantly hid behind the security officer any time someone raised their voice or appeared angry for some reason. It was obvious the security was seen as a comfort. Rather than protecting others from Chains, protecting Chains from their constant fear.
