This story is set in a world where gender roles are a bit different than in our world. I had originally only planned on doing one story, but I began wondering about the background of the story, and started coming up with ideas that eventually led to an expanded story. While I'm sure there's been plenty of stories where roles have been reversed, I hope my story will be different enough to make this an interesting and pleasant reading experience.

I was wearing my favorite dangly earrings that looked like a tiny model of the solar system with only 3 planets. I had a three-quarter sleeved top that showed off my breasts that were small and yet seemed to fit my frame. I heard loud voices behind me and turned to see what the commotion was about and saw my mother and sisters coming toward me, shouting and pointing at me. I covered my face and yelled nooooooo.

Summer with Aunt Ashley

 summer with Aunt Ashley

It was the summer of 1987 and I was sixteen – almost seventeen. Scrawny in those days and usually displaying at least a couple of grazes from a skateboarding mishap. The wounds might have been more important than the boarding skills: badges of honor that even an uncoordinated kid could acquire.

The Voyage of the Visund -4-

The castaway and her clothing are in shocking condition. This raises many questions, some of which dare not be answered by those who know. Examination of her belongings reveals yet more puzzles, and the time taken means that the Visund will not reach her intended stop for the night. Once a suitable place for camping has been found, a furious argument then develops...

Fighting the Homm: part 15, final.


Chapter twenty nine: mopping up.

Even though the events of the last couple of weeks had made things a lot better, a slight feeling of uneasiness remained for Odyssa. Yes, so far peace seemed more secure, but they had not yet been everywhere to get the treaty signed. As a result she set off again with the Deara the two destroyers and Suha, who this time was accompanied by Kasu, in the Anagara, to investigate the farthest reaches of this universe. Two more Lizard communities signed the treaty and they were already asking themselves if they needed to turn around, when they were attacked by a small fleet of unknown ships. Both Kasu and Circe clouded their the squadron in protective spells, but the fire from the alien vessels took a lot of energy to ward off.

Notes: Sorry this took so long. On top of my usual issues, I got a head cold that hung around for at least two weeks and decimated my energy to do things. I'm still not fully recovered, but I'm about 85 to 90 percent recovered.

The Voyage of the Visund -3-

The third leg of their voyage sees the Visund tackle the toughest leg: upstream with no wind assistance, crossing the main current. This involves almost everyone taking an oar. Once past the obstacle, the next reach proves easy sailing, but just before they reach their stop for the following night, the lookouts spot something.

3 - Crossing the Current

Fighting the Homm: part 14


Chapter twenty seven: the Lizard Amazons

Suha and Odyssa sparred every day from then on. At first it was only the human Amazons watching, but soon Taka, Gora and Zima watched too. It did not take long for Taka to ask if she could be taught as well. Odyssa, who was very satisfied with the quick learning of Suha, asked Suha, if she would mind doing some gentle exercises with Taka, so that she could watch the differences in how her body moved by comparison to herself and Suha. Of course now everybody was interested. Suha was very gentle with Taka, who had great difficulty to adjust to the speed, with which Suha was now moving. Odyssa was watching Taka’s every move, mentally noting how Taka had a completely different body balance, which made it almost impossible for her to match Suha’s movements, but that was what she evidently thought she had to do. Odyssa stopped them.

Fighting the Homm: part 13


Chapter twenty five: the dawning of peace

Like all the other times before Odyssa awoke refreshed and full of drive. Elaria was refreshed, too and Circe, who had protected everyone with her spell just in case, was happy. Both kids were their usual self and so Gaia found a happy little family around her, when she finally woke up, too. Even though she had not recovered all of her strength it was obvious, that the planet was recovering fast. The flora had become abundant and so had the fauna. Gaia was wondering about that, as it had originally been Kronos, who had created the animal life. But when she looked outside more closely she saw Elaria in what could only be a conversation with some of the horses. She definitely saw understanding in the animals eyes, as Elaria was gently speaking to them. Gaia was fascinated. Who was this girl, whom Odyssa called Princess and her daughter?

Reflections: A Gamble

This is my first attempt at posting something on here so please forgive any mistakes in format or anything else.

Anyway here is a small teaser of a story that I have been kicking around for a bit. It’s still a bit rough but I figured let you’ll get a taste. It may be a little bit until I post the first chapter and really get underway I hope y’all enjoy.


Reflections: Gamble

Prologue

A cry rent the night from the depths of the palace a cry not of terror but of pain and joy, The princess had been born.

Fighting the Homm: part 12


Chapter twenty three: a serious assault

Next Odyssa had the ships join Kan’s squadron and, since the Deara now really was the flagship of the fleet, she had the commanding officers convene in the ship’s canteen, the only place big enough for and assembly of that size. She introduced Suha to all the others and could see the look of pride on Kan’s face, as he realised her new uniform. He had made the right choice. Now Odyssa introduced them to her decisions about strategy. As she was used to lead from the front as the Queen of Amazons as well because of her unique ability to kill Homm, the Deara would take first place behind the skirmishers, whom she wanted Sala and LaSaDa to lead. Kan, Suha, Oda and Han, the commander of the fourth battleship were to engage the battle with their respective destroyers and bring it to whatever ships the Homm would throw at them, while Odyssa would take the Deara past the enemy line and assault their base on the target planet. The assault would only stop once the enemy leader and or the creator of the Homm was dead.

The Voyage of the Visund -2-

The Visund departs Dekarran and makes a tricky crossing of the river before turning upstream. The pilot, Prell, educates Eriana about what they might expect as their voyage continues.

2 - The Mighty Sirrel

Fighting the Homm: part 11


Chapter twenty one: offensive moves

Odyssa’s patience was not put to too hard a test. It only took the equivalent of four days to complete fitting the rest of Kan’s squadron as well as all of Odyssa’s remaining ships and fighters with everything necessary. Ara had called back another squadron for a refit and Odyssa had decided to wait to be able to meet another admiral before setting off again. Her intuition proved itself another time. She purposefully kept to the background, as Ara greeted the squadrons commanders and the admiral, only to find, that the first thing the admiral did was to challenge Ara’s authority. Dressed in just her Amazon suit and armour she slowly moved towards the group to listen more closely.

Fighting the Homm: part 10


Chapter nineteen: A squadron of Homm

After the experience of the attack on Elaria Odyssa was quite sure there would be another attempt of some sort. After Circe had recharged herself asleep in Odyssa’s arms she had cloaked the remaining ships, so that no one approaching could sense them one way or another. The ships remained close to the raided base and the ships Odyssa had wasted. LaSaDa rested on the Deara, as Odyssa had planned the same tactics as last time, if a force of Homm should come to investigate and possibly find some slaves. They’d go empty here, hopefully they would not attack Taka’s city first, but since there had been no Homm there and no slaves either, she hoped her trap would work. Noticing Homm approach, she would use the portal again to hide inside the damaged ship and then attack the Homm from there, once they had landed and got out of their ships. As soon as she had disabled a number of them, all ships would let loose on the remaining force with everything they had at full blast, while Odyssa would add her own fire from ground level.

The Voyage of the Visund -1-

In the docks at Dekarran, a visiting ship is being made ready for a voyage upstream along the Sirrel...on the dockside above, Captain Eriana Embriktsdottir receives unpleasant news. Although her initial fears are calmed by those in authority, she still has concerns. Meanwhile, her ship must be victualed, crewed and prepared for impending departure.

1 - A Disappearance and a Departure


This account begins approximately two bells after Garia's disappearance on her second visit to Blackstone.

Fighting the Homm: part 9


Chapter seventeen: hopeful.

LaSaDa, Sala, Kasu, Kan and Odyssa had just a very short talk, before they met the Lizard delegation. Odyssa had explained how, after Blade had made her stop Mari killing the Lizard woman and she had spoken to her, she had realised, that perhaps there was a split between those lizards, who, like that Osk, wanted power and the general population. If they could make the pirates terminate the alliance with the Homm and keep out of the conflict with them, after the Homm were eliminated the Alliance would have the upper hand and those among the Lizard race, who wanted peace might outnumber the warring fraction and peace could be achieved.

Fighting the Homm: part 8


Chapter fifteen: more clean up.

The freed slaves had already been prepared for what was to come by Odyssa’s teams and the first batch was sent over to the Deara with the captured transport and its team of Amazons. But before Odyssa started on the healing she set more things in motion for her psychological warfare. She asked Sori to find out where the next pirate base was and then communicated with Kasu through Circe, telling her what she had in mind. The two destroyers should stay here as kind of show of force, in case the pirates came to find out why their base was silent.

Fighting the Homm: part 7


Chapter thirteen: no rest for the wicked.

Odyssa awoke from a nice refreshing sleep and found Circe lovingly stoking her hair. They locked eyes and Circe gently touched her face.
“You are doing well, my love. Your confidence is contagious and as frightening as you can be, people begin to love you. Especially your new Amazons.”
“They are lovely, Circe. It is almost like back at Lesbos, when Penthesilea was rebuilding our tribe. It is so sad, that you do not remember your time there.”
Circe giggled.
“So where are you going to find the Centaurs to help grow your tribe, Odyssa?”

Fighting the Homm: part 6


Chapter eleven: clean up.

Odyssa, once cleaned up did not rest yet. She still had to check and possibly cure all the slaves from the residing spell that was meant to be able to find them again. Her first Job though, was to allay their fear. She decided to let her Amazons try first.
“Amazons to me.” she said softly back on the hangar deck.
“Yes my Queen.” came back equally soft, although the volume was a lot higher due to the fact, that there were almost fifty of them replying almost at the same time.

Fighting the Homm: part 3


Chapter five: a battle of wits.

They found more than one base of the pirates, but one seemed to be the most frequented. Odyssa decided to drop the ship off there. But she also decided to erase all traces she might have left in it of herself, Circe or Helena. The next thing was to sort out the tracing problem, as a frustrated Circe and an angry LaSaDa came back. They had not achieved anything, something was completely blocking whatever camouflage magic they tried to apply. Circe was at her wits end. Short of taking LaSaDa back to earth and to ask Washington for an MRI scan Odyssa could only think of one other solution. She took LaSaDa to a secluded room Ara showed her and told Circe to make that complete room vanish with her spell. Like before with her bedroom that worked. Odyssa had LaSaDa undress completely and had Ara take the clothes away.
