Challenge #03999-J347: From Little Things

"I'm nothing."

"Incorrect - you are a seed."

"I'm worthless."

"You are helping many people."

"Why are you giving me this acorn?"

"This is you, and your very, very long life. Plant it in fertile soil, and come back in 20 standard years. Keep helping people as you are, and you will see your answer."

"I don't understand."

"You will, I promise." -- Anon Guest

Ive didn't understand, but did as ze was told. Planting the gifted acorn as directed in the Station Park. Ze returned to hir habitual helping in a multitude of small ways. They were always little things. Small helps.

As an ex-deregger, Ive simultaneously wanted to repay what ze considered a debt, but also to avoid notice or notoriety. Thus, there were a thousand small helps ze could do.

Any moment ze had to spare, ze used hir kind hands for anyone who needed hir. Ze never introduced hirself, never stuck around for gratitude, and tended to make hirself scarce whenever anyone looking like a Deregger CEO turned up.

Once he saw her, looking to the three travelers, the bugbear, the kobold, and the elf, the youth held out the basket to her, bowed and said softly, "Thank you." For he never forgot how she undid his bindings, and stopped him from ending his own life that

Challenge #03072-H164: Surprise Change of Plans

She was hunting for them, seeking hir out. The ancient one, the magi who went by many names, the one who had a thousand children, and more grandchildren than the world would ever know, yet possibly none by their own blood. Spotting their camp, the kobold, hir, and the bugbear child. Slowly through the underbrush she went as silent as a shadow in the moonlight. Then, swiftly, she sprang. Sudden flares shot out behind her in brilliantly colored sparkles, almost blinding in

Challenge #02092-E268: Call of Destiny

"How stupid do you think I look?"

"I don't know, I can't see you from here." -- Anon Guest

Of all the curses, in all the known universe, there is little that's more insulting than being sassed by a telemarketer. "Listen," I said, "I'm not going to do your stupid damn check for a windows virus. I'm not paying my taxes by the phone. I'm not suing someone for a car accident I had twelve years ago that didn't even do any

Challenge #01659-D198: Kind and Dangerous Stranger

Never annoy a sleeping dragon, for you are fat and crunchy, and taste good with BBQ sauce! -- Fliss

At first, she thought it was a lava flow. One of those ones where the lava ran under a relatively whole, cooler skin. It was warm enough to be one. Then she noticed the way it flexed rhythmically, and realised that, in fact, this was a sleeping dragon. Fire was their element and this black-scaled beauty was no different. Their skin luminesced as
