"We stormed the Tower where Yithef was being held prisoner. She begged for her life and died like a simpering coward as I obliterated her."

"My hate grew by the day. I swore that not one member of the vile House of Mxcd would be allowed to live. My first attack slew a thousand."

"I demanded that King Mqvv and Queen Bcie, the parents of Kaylynn and Yithef, slay the murderess to atone for my loss. But they refused."

"Not even the most powerful of sorcerers could reach my beloved. With each day without her I grew more filled with hate and swore revenge."

"She tricked my beloved Kotyz into drinking Aether of Gnyve. This onieromancy sent the spirit of my wife to the Valley of Death Eternal."

"Yithef was far more powerful than Kaylynn could ever dream of being. She held the key to life and death. She could control spirits."

"But if mother was a spirit of heaven, she could not truly be destroyed," Rhianon protested.
"Mayhap not. But Yithef banished her."

"Your mother was queen of the spirits of the Heavens," said Oceanus. "I of course, am King of the Underworld. Together we ruled gloriously."

"Mother died when I was but a small child," Rhianon said. "I know that she was wonderful and kind. She wouldn't wish suffering on others."

"Do you know how glorious your mother was, Rhianon?" Oceanus demanded. "If you knew what a treasure was destroyed you too would be angry."

"Kaylynn, no! You are innocent as well," Rhianon cried. "Your death will not bring my mother back! Father, please, stop this madness now!"

"If you feel it would bring justice for your loss, then kill me. But do not continue to punish innocent people for your anger at my family."

"It is true that my family could not see fit to execute her, but we did have her under lock and key so she could do no further harm."

"Princess Yithef, my sister, poisoned your wife in a fit of jealousy, Oceanus," Kaylynn said. "She was being punished for her actions."

"You are so much like your mother," Oceanus said. "And those we tried to live in harmony with so long ago are the ones that killed her."

"Why do you delight in causing such grief?" Rhianon demanded. "Why can't you live in harmony with these folk? Why use your power for evil?"

"It grieves me that my child considers me her mortal enemy," Oceanus said. "Why do you not join me, Daughter? Glory will be ours together."

"Faugh! I see no need to waste another breath arguing with you. I am done speaking." And with that the exiled queen turned to the window.

"It would appear to be so at the moment," Kaylynn concurred. "Though even you can't always have your guard up, Oceanus. Sooner or later..."

"You're in a fix now, Sorceress," he said. "For if you or your husband or your wretched brood oppose me, the queen dies. I've already won."

"Yes, Captain."
The guard Lyr turned smartly and hurried up the stairs. Once he was gone, Oceanus resumed his true form and laughed.

"You may leave now, Lyr. Increase the patrols. And keep an eye on the princesses. They too seem to have been influenced by this sorceress."

"What of Rhianon, do you suppose?" the guard asked. "She must be under the spell of this sorceress."
"Perhaps. If so, she will be spared."

"Yes, Captain," the guard agreed.
"True, her treachery will likely result in the separation of her head from her shoulders," Oceanus mused.

"Now Lyr, the prisoner is, after all, a lady," Oceanus admonished. "And although she is a traitor, we should still treat her respectfully."

"There has been nothing but discord since you and your family came to this place!" he shouted, shoving the exiled queen roughly. "Move now!"

Oceanus, in the guise of a guard, led Rhianon to the dungeon in a respectful fashion. His fellow guardsman treated Kaylynn in a rough way.

"Rhianon, why would you harm her majesty? Has this outsider bewitched you?" the guard asked.
"Take them to the dungeon!" Neacel demanded.

When the guard entered the chamber, his eyes widened in surprise. For there in the custody of one of his fellows stood his friend Rhianon.

Sunday, March 27, 2011

"Yes your majesty?" the guard asked as he crested the top of the stair.
"Hurry to my chambers. These sorceresses have accosted the Queen."

When Oceanus rose, so did Neacel. He pulled a cord near the bed and a bell pealed. He strode stiffly to open the bedchamber door. "Guard!"

Light from the malevolent green stone fell upon Kaylynn and Rhianon. Both stood unmoving, staring straight ahead. Oceanus rose and stood.

"Firstly, I will have your father--my puppet--order his guards to place these treacherous wenches in the dungeon," Oceanus thundered.

"I need to have assurance against treachery. Thus thy good mother will remain in this dormant state until I have achieved my objectives."

"All right, I'll marry Padrac," Isabella conceded. "Now free my mother."
"It isn't as easy as that, Princess," Oceanus chuckled. amwriting

"Come any closer and she dies," the demon king hissed. "And believe me that she will remain this way until you meet my demands." amwriting

The staff was topped with a deep green stone which cast an unsettling hue over the bedchamber. A beam of light settled directly on Gyda.

The demon form of Oceanus was truly unsettling. Malevolent russet eyes glowed in his vicious bone-white face. Skeletal hands held a staff.

In the bed nearby, Queen Gyda lay motionless. Her skin was a shocking shade of red. And behind Neacel stood none other than King Oceanus.

The sight that met the eyes of the women was a shocking one. King Neacel sat on a chair beside the bed. His deep green eyes were glassy.

The lantern that Rhianon carried shone a cool blue-white light emanating from a small stone. Isabella opened the chamber door cautiously.

Life for Intersexed Children is Difficult

I wanted to post this comment on Pam's House Blend, but I keep getting a popup that says "Bad Gateway." So I will post it here. The article was in regards to forcing intersexed children to be one gender or the other rather than allowing them to choose when they got old enough to make the decision, and the drastic consequence of making such a critical decision for them.

Thank you to those of you who shared your stories about your experiences. Gender is much more complex than the average person believes it to be. And there is so much stigma if you aren't a "manly man" or a "girly girl." I'm a straight woman who was born female, but I was never a "girly girl" so I got branded a "tomboy" and a "dyke." Being branded a dyke didn't particularly bother me because I figured anyone who refused to be my friend because they thought I was a lesbian wasn't a friend worth having. However I've always hated the term "tomboy." My name wasn't Tom and I wasn't a boy. I was simply an active girl.
But I digress. The situations you are referring to are much, much worse. I myself knew a girl when I was in junior high who came from this horrible, redneck family. She looked and acted kind of boyish, and I always figured she was another "tomboy" like myself. Her hateful dick of an older brother was always beating her up and her parents did nothing about it. I later found out that she was intersexed and the doctors had decided that it would be easier to "make her into a girl" than a boy. I don't know what happened to her. I only know that I liked her no matter what her gender was and I felt sorry for her having to live in that awful family.
I hope one day that minds will open enough to realize that we should treat all people as people, whether they are gay, straight, or bisexual. Whether they are the sex that they were born, or they are transgendered. Whether they are one sex or intersexed. That is the only way to prevent these sad things from happening any more.

I'll play the victim for you honey, but not for free

I run into that heartache just like a wall
and act like nothings happened to me, nothing at all
lately im amazed, at how blind we can be
lately even dreaming feels like old reality

what would I give, to be a diamond in your eyes again
what would I give, to bring back those old times
what did i say, to make your cold heart beat this way
maybe I'll just go away to stay

maybe i'll just go away
maybe i'll just go away

and i don't care who's waiting, at my front door
you know that life don't hold no glamour anymore
how can it all look so right, but feel so wrong
i'll play the victim for you honey, but not for long


maybe i'll just go away
maybe i'll just go away
maybe i'll just go away

Lindsay Lohan: Twitter, Facebook Confusion (PHOTO)

I very much agree with you. Lindsay Lohan is a troubled person who is overexpose­d by the media. Wishing for her death is horrible.

She certainly isn't in the same club as those who do actual harm. Shame on those who are so heartless as to wish her dead!

I also find myself wondering why I don't get over things that a "normal" person would have had done with long ago.
After four months I'm still hurting over a betrayal by someone I considered a friend for a number of years. It is evident that this person never considered me a friend, just someone whose ideas they could utilize for their own purposes. Why I'm not emotionally strong enough to simply cut such a passive-aggressive and ultimately toxic individual out of my mind and heart as I know would be most healthy is a complex thing which goes back to early childhood.
This is not the first such betrayal in my life. I have a long history of inviting in unstable people who I believe are kindred spirits because like me they are artistically expressive in some fashion, and like me, they are also damaged goods in some fashion. But there the similarity ends. These "friends" tend to be angry and have developed a world view where they do not have friends, only tools in human form that they utilize as it pleases them and then dispose of when it no longer pleases them. They have no conscience about behaving this way. 
When one hears of such a person one generally thinks of somebody who puts themselves in the position of a lover. They seduce someone, use them sexually until the initial bloom is off the rose, then toss them aside. The victim of this game ends up wondering what they did wrong, believing that if only they were not so flawed their beloved would not have betrayed them this way. 
However, such betrayals also happen in friendships and other partnerships. While the sense of betrayal lacks the romantic component, in many ways it is no less painful. It does leave lasting scars. The victim of the betrayal is still left thinking "if I weren't so flawed, they wouldn't have abandoned me."
That this feeling pervades even when logic dictates that the supposed friend/trusted partner was really never a friend and never should have been trusted speaks to someone who was betrayed at an early age in some fashion or another. It is not necessary at this time to go into what the betrayals were in my case. But they were there, and from an early age I learned that I was not "good enough" to warrant real friends. I always latched onto anything pretending to be friendship, only to learn that I had attracted another sour vampire needing to feed his or her ego.
I always learn in the end that once you cease feeding the ego of such individuals, they are done with you. They don't have friends. They have components. Everyone in their life fits into the machine they have built to boost their own ego. Once any of these components questions their actions or does not express adulation, they remove the component as easily as they throw out a broken appliance. The emotions of others do not matter to them.
This wouldn't matter if the only people they brought into their lives were at best casual acquaintances. Then the worst that would happen should they give said acquaintance the brush-off would be a bit of a sting which would eventually give way to thoughts such as "what a total fucking tool!" on the part of the cast-off.
When the sour vampire latches onto people who are damaged and desperate to find friends, the outcome is more severe. The "what a fucking tool" thought is still there, but it is complicated by thoughts of "if I weren't such a loser, so and so would still be my friend," and "I know that this person is a jerk, but I wish I didn't know that so we could still be friends." Rather than being a minor injury that is forgotten when the bruise or cut heals, the seemingly minor insult is much deeper than it appears on the surface and leaves a scar on the psyche. 
The psyche of a person who has confidence in his or her self-worth is less likely to be scarred by the actions of such vampires. A person with confidence is also likely more likely to see the vampire for what he or she is from the beginning and deal with them only superficially if at all. 
The walking wounded, on the other hand, tend to be so desperate for friendship that they overlook glaring red flags trimmed in neon revealing the true nature of their "friend." If it doesn't reflect in the mirror and has an aversion to holy symbols, it's probably a vampire. A person with a whole psyche recognizes this immediately. A wounded soul will rationalize, even to the point of saying "so what if he/she is a vampire. They're different from all the other vampires I've been hurt by in the past!"
I don't know if I'll ever learn to like myself anywhere near enough to stop letting the vampires in. I'm hoping that this most recent incident of betrayal will be the last. I'm hoping that in the future I'll recognize the red flags for what they are and say "no more vampires."
The problem is for someone like me that I crave more than superficial connections. Yet it is too dangerous to have any connection that goes deeper.
The vampires, either consciously or subconsciously recognize this. And so they come in and feed. 
I'm tired of being a victim. I wonder if I've finally learned how to recognize a vampire so I will not be one again.

It's not his fault that he's a blood-sucking fiend from beyond the grave...right?

Tuesday, February 8, 2011 Seven Supremely Douchebag Moves

Off for a day shift--yuck! Much prefer evenings or even nights.

Tempest's son will be home in the next couple of weeks. She will be very happy to see him, believe me!

It is very cold and stormy outside, Dahlings. I would not be sad if today's assignment were canceled. But I'm sure it won't be.

At any rate, the thing that is needed most now is a little more sleep. Hopefully Tempest will not slide off the road on the way to work!

However, unlike in the days of old, Tempest will not trouble herself to beg for friendship with someone who decides to treat her poorly.

It's really a drag, Dahlings, to see activity by someone you were once friends with who decided to be a jerk to you. It makes Tempest sad. Metalheads: the Next Generation Hot & Heavy Action at the Happy Wiener Power to the Rooster

@andersoncooper I merely thought that you were practicing for the next Talk Like a Pirate Day. Glad you're okay, of course! :-) Rep. Pitts is the pits.

I may try to work on A Princess of Xiumiqa a little bit today. I don't know. much going on, Dahlings! Most of it icky.

about to go brave the slickness of the roads to get to work. Hopefully my car won't do what I did earlier. Elbow hurts but only when touched

Ended up going ass over teakettle when I stepped out to take something to the car. Don't think I broke anything but may be sore for awhile.

Crap, that missing chandelier bulb makes a lot of difference. My eyes are starting to hurt. But I don't wanna go out in the snow to get one. If the internet disappeared today.

Redefining Rape a Bad Idea

At this time, federal dollars can't be used for abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the woman's life is in danger. But the bill, introduced by Republican congressman Chris Smith, would narrow that use to "cases of 'forcible' rape but not statutory or coerced rape."
The wording of this proposed bill is dangerous and would deny abortions to women and girls who may have been raped while in an altered mental state due to drugs or alcohol and thus unable to consent. It would also deny abortion to anyone who was coerced, perhaps by threat of harm to themself or a loved one. Abortion must remain safe and legal for women of all income levels.
Please sign the petition to say "no" to this dangerously worded and narrow-minded bill.

Sneaky Bipolar II

My bipolar disorder (type II) was not diagnosed until I was nearly forty due to the fact that I only have hypomanias rather than full manias. I cannot take antidepressants as they will send me into a full mania. Sedatives make me suicidal and many pain killers actually send me into temporary psychosis where I hallucinate. The only medication that I can tolerate is a low dose of Lithium. 10 subtle signs of bipolar disorder He put words to my thoughts on pornography.
