Politics Is… Pretty Instinctive at Times [2.12]

ASE.pngFena.jpg

There’s a debate to be made on whether instinct is just a form of advanced self-awareness or a truly separate sense entirely.

There’s also a debate to be made on whether trusting your instincts, consciously or not, is always such a good idea.
Luckily, most politicians are good at debating and Hannah debates with herself constantly, so she’s in good company, right?

Events unfold including but not limited to:

John eavesdropping,
---
Hannah eating more chocolate,
---
And people reassessing things they once thought were impossible, for good or bad.

Myrna and the Grievous Error - Part 3

Myrna and the Grievous Error
Part 3

By Portia Bennett

 
Introduction: This story is a third in a series within a series. The overall series is the “Cynthia Chronicles”. This story is directly connected to “Simoné and the Second Time Around” and “Marti and the Doppelganger”. The latter left many unanswered questions. Some of those will be answered, some probably not. There are many references to previous stories in the series. If you are confused by some of them, just put it off to my senility. There are some darker aspects to this story, and it is not nearly as upbeat as some in this series have been in the past. Perhaps some of it has been influenced by current situations in our own universe. I do not expect the reception to be very exuberant. There is an allegory. Myrna Moskowitz puts it out there in a later part. The Cynthia Chronicles takes place in a universe very similar to ours. Unfortunately, it might be too similar.

This submission will be in eight parts. All are completed. Any errors are mine and I will gladly accept constructive criticism; as long as you’re nice.

Simoné, her beloved Ivana and their four children spend time with Margaret on American Samoa after Simoné gives birth to Raisa, their fourth child. Myrna tells Avery about her trip with The Wizard over the previous night. Avery doesn’t flinch – much. Ronnie explains to her mother that she can’t be changed into a witch. They don’t know how. .

During the final battle against the forces of Halleb, the Caretaker of the Dead, she was suddenly sent back in time seven years in the past, during the time when peace was cheap and lives were flourishing.

Politics is... Full of People in Need of Breaking [2.11]

ASE.pngdrinks 2.jpg

You tend to meet all sorts of people when dealing with Politics; sadly, most of them are politicians. But there's still the odd normal human thrown in as well. Now, those normal human beings can often be worse than the politicians in the long run. In fact, it’s often the case.

That's a whole other kettle of fish, though, and it can get lumped under the often stated fact that people are stupid, unfortunately. Still, the odds are that there are at least a few interesting gems hiding in all the muck, right?

Events unfold including but not limited to:

Hannah corrupts someone,
A toast is raised,
And we avoid talking about the Graeco-Roman religious divide!

Politics Is… Full of Rules in Need of Breaking [2.10]

ASE.pngDrinks.jpg

Where is the line between being friendly and sexual harassment? Can mitigating factors such as ‘she thought I was her ex-lover', for some of it at least, be brought into consideration at all?

Hmm? No real reason why I'm asking… No reason at all, just idle curiosity, honest…
Uh—I mean, I'm asking for a friend.
There! That works better!

Events unfold including but not limited to:

Hannah finds something wrong in her bra,
John finds something wrong in his magic,
And a party rolls on around them regardless of any new information that may come to light because of either issue!

Complete the Look Part 4

When they arrived at the park, they walked over to a gazebo to wait for Alyssa’s friends. 10 or so minutes later, they arrived.

“Hi Chris, Hi Adam, Hi Alice. You remember my sister Erica, right?”

“Yeah,” they said. Adam looked really uncomfortable. They all talked for some time before splitting up into seperate conversations. Erica was left alone with Adam. After talking for a while something weird began to happen.

“You look really nice in that outfit,” he said.

Complete the Look Part 2

“WHAT THE HELL,” said Erica. “That wasn’t me speaking.”

“It was, Erica. I gave you a little bit of a psychological nudge when I transformed you so you wouldn’t constantly resist being a girl. If you really hate it, I’ll change you back, but first, go relax in your room, I have something to do, and then we’re going to the mall.”

“Okay. That also explains why I respond to Erica without protest.”

Achievement Unlocked 01

The well was large as far as wells went. Almost a yard across with a foot high rim. There wasn't even a road nearby just miles of forest in all directions. Yet the well had been there as long as anybody could remember. A solid structure of dressed grey stone, fitted together so precisely that the mortar was not visible between the interlocked courses. The problem, however was not the wells construction but the sudden lack of water.

The Treasure of Eerie, Arizona

Chapter 2

December 13, 1871

Irene Fanning slept fitfully. When slumber fled and left her lying awake for a long while, she climbed out from the cot. It was still dark inside the infirmary. She walked on tiptoes to Myra's bed and gazed down at the patient, seeing her face only faintly in the dim lamplight.

Cursing Curse

Evan cursed a lot. A lot as to the point in scared his friends. His mom was fed up.

One day, when Evan came home from school, his mom decided to put his plan into action.

“Hi Evan! How was your day?” she said.

“Fucking boring, bitch,” he replied angrily. His mom was fed up.

“That’s not very ladylike,” she said.

“Yeah, I’m a fucking guy, of course it’s damn not.”

“Not for long,” his mom muttered. “It’s hot outside, have a drink.”

Politics Is… Often About Compromise [2.9]

ASE.pngChocolate.jpg

Politically, compromise is acceptable and can even be considered good. In other situations, compromise can be a very bad thing.

An example of that would be when it all comes down to the important factors of life; your morals, ethics or iron-clad will to resist that stupid part of your brain which finds a certain someone attractive enough to throw everything aside in a moment of passion empowered madness that—

What do you mean ‘spoilers’? For all you know I'm talking about the unexpected love triangle between Felix, Lord Suttonsborough, and Fena!
Fine, I'll stop—see if I give y’all an actual x-rated make out session to read this side of the apocalypse now!
…Some people are so ungrateful sometimes…

Events unfold, including but not limited to:

Things going ‘boom’ unrealistically,
A make-out session does not happen,
And Hannah gets revenge on several well-deserving friends with help from Rosemary, of all people!

Eerie Saloon -- Treasure of Eerie: Prolog

The Treasure of Eerie, Arizona
by Christopher Leeson and Ellie Dauber

This new story of Eerie, Arizona concerns one of its untold tales. It carries us back to December, 1871, to a month that has been already visited in the second novel, “Eerie Saloon: Seasons of Change – Autumn” and in the short story “Eerie Saloon -- Toy Soldier.” Let's assume that, behind the scenes, something else was happening that we did not at that time choose to reveal, something that will now be the subject of this novella.

Harry Potter and the Trouble With Neurotypicals 42

Harry Potter and the Trouble With Neurotypicals: Book Four.
Or, "Autistic Potter and the Goblet of Fire."

Notes: I do not own this. J. K. Rowling does. This is just fan fiction. No money is being made. Not by me, anyway.

Started putting dates on here because it makes writing easier for me. Dates come from the old version of the Harry Potter Lexicon site's timeline pages. (The new ones suck.)

Chapter Ten: What A Pain

Notes: Sorry for the late update. Lots of things have been colluding against me. Summer heat, dangerous smoke in the air from the forest fires, pitiful amount of inspiration for this story, and the fact I've been working on some original fiction I hope to get published someday. But here we are!

The Many Faces Go To War 9

“The Many Faces Go To War: Chapter 9”
By = Fayanora

Chapter Nine: Unofficial Self-Defense Club

Notes: Whoops! Forgot to post this last time! So you'll be getting two in a row!

Started putting dates on these chapters where possible, it helps me keep track of where I am in the story. (Something I figured out when writing my original fiction.) Dates are provided by HP Lexicon's Order of the Phoenix calendar.

Politics Is... Sometimes Disappointing [2.8]

ASE.pngSeating.jpg

It can be theorised that every human interaction is a battle of one kind or another, be it a battle of wills, ethics, beliefs, or just the give and take of disparate personalities. It’s rare that people can claim they have so much in common that they never fight, even in a playful, bantering sort of way. It’s even rarer when they are correct on that front as well.

Sometimes the battles we fight are a lot more overt than a few subtle verbal jabs though. The times when those sort of battles don’t come to blows are often referred to as ‘politics’, although to be fair, the times when those same battles do come to blows are also referred to as ‘politics’ in some circles, at least, until they reach a point of outright war.
Let’s hope Hannah can restrain herself just a little bit, huh?
I’m not holding my breath, of course. It’s not easy being the famous new kid, after all!

Events unfold including but not limited to:
Someone infers that Hannah is a naughty girl,
John laughs a lot,
And Fena’s helmet makes it hard to express emotions appropriately at a distance!
