Give it up already!
So last night, I’m driving home from work, just as I usually do. Of course, since it’s January in Chicagoland, it’s fecking freezing here, and still dark. Winter wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the cold. So anyways, I’m driving home, and part of my route runs along the Fox River here. The […]Continue reading
And so this is Christmas…
And what have I done? Well, so far, I’ve managed to yet again change the look of my website. This constant change amuses me for some obscure reason, not exactly sure why that is. If I put as much effort into leveling my character in AC2 as I do in redoing the look (not the […]Continue reading
My Childhood Has been Sullied!
Well, not exactly sullied, really, more like reality has run roughshod over the memories. What I am I talking about? The lovely fall harvest tradition of getting a pumpkin for Halloween. This past weekend, the husband and I went to close our summer trailer for the season. Gorgeous fall day – clear blue sky, crisp, […]Continue reading
Roleplaying, where does it end?
This article was submitted and posted as an opinion editorial at Player2Player.net. During a site upgrade, there was a major crash, and the original boards were lost. At the time, the names of the person I wrote about (Altariel/Katie/Rob) were changed (Sundancer/June/Steve) because this was written immediately after the incident I describe, and because there […]Continue reading
A Kiss Goodbye
Originally posted on Crossroads of Dereth Tales Forum, Summer 2000 This is another of my AC Darktide stories, one that I had forgotten about until a chance link from the TAO website lead me to find this and the “Promise Fulfilled” story. My character – Lady Rhyssa Fireheart – was devoted to her lord and […]Continue reading

I started playing on Darktide – the full PvP server. Back in the beginning, there was more RPing on the server in general, and I enjoyed writing. This story was […]Continue reading
Originally posted on Circle of the Eternal Dragon’s Guild Forum, July 2000 I wrote this story while I was on vacation in California for my brother-in-law’s wedding. I managed to catch an upper respiratory infection while out there, so instead of partying and having fun, I felt like I was trying to hack up a […]Continue reading
A Promise Fulfilled
Originally posted on Crossroads of Dereth Tales Forum, Month Unknown 2000 This is another of my AC Darktide stories, one that I had forgotten about until a chance link from the TAO website lead me to find this and the “A Kiss Goodbye” story. I think I wrote this mostly to celebrate finally learning some […]Continue reading
Rebirth, Part IV (Final)
Originally posted on Crossroads of Dereth Tales Forum, April 2000 The final part in the “creation” story for my Asheron’s Call character, Rhyssa Fireheart. Playing this character, and writing stories like this one (several of which I can no longer find, sadly), are a few of the reasons why I ended up “becoming” Rhyssa Fireheart, […]Continue reading
