#ThursThread Honorable Mention

Posted in #ThursThreads, awards, flash fiction with tags on December 30, 2011 by Nellie

I had gotten picked for a #ThursThread Honorable Mention. It takes place from 7am Pacific to 7pm Pacific (Or 10 to 10 to us East Coasters).

“Let me go, bastard!” The woman struggled against the two men that held her in place, putting hands on her shoulder and forcing her to sit in the chair.

The man sat across the desk from her. He glanced at her with distaste before pulling out a long silvered dagger, a ruby in the pommel.

“It’s nothing personal, my dear. This is something that has to be done. It had been so for centuries, but it had not always been so.” He nodded his head. Grey eyes leveled on the struggling woman. “You should be happy that you were selected. It is an honor to be the Host. There are usually other young women who beg to be chosen.” He nodded to the men. “Put her across the table.”

“Noooo, no. Stop. You don’t know what you’re doing. You’re going to curse us all.” She wiggled and struggled as they yanked her to a long stone table sitting against the window. The full moon streamed in through the open window, coating it in blue sheen.

They secured her in the shackles and the man picked up the dagger, pointing it towards the outside. The ruby caught in the light started a slow burn in its depths. “Father, bless us.” He bowed his head.

She arched up against the chains, watching as he picked up the dagger and drove it down into her breast. White flame burst out from her chest and she gave a scream that degenerated into a howl.

My first awards

Posted in awards on September 13, 2011 by Nellie

Leah over at Leah Writes Pretty Fierce awarded me with the above awards. Thank you!

I believe the rule of thumb is seven bits of tidbits per award but I’m not sure I have that many. 🙂 Bunching them together would be okay, yes?

1. I went to New Orleans by myself after a bunch of friends who were planning to go backed out. I had the money and the itch to go so I went. I don’t regret it at all.

2. I had my first riding lesson when I was 30. It was a present from a friend. About a year later, I got owner ship of a horse for free. Fantasy is a diva.

3. I can be a bit of a dork. I have played MMORPGs. First one was Lineage. The other is World of Warcraft. That one I still play an hour or so here or there.

4. 2011 is my 5th year as an Municipal Liasion (ML) for NaNoWriMo. I have two co-MLs right now and would like another. it gets tiring covering some of the areas that do.

5. I do want to go to Scotland someday. (Does that count if it’s on my bucket list?)

6. I met my roommate and good friend through a RP chat room. We were kind of shocked when we realized how close we lived to each other.

7. I’m a cat person, be it domesticated or wild and big!

8. If number 5 wasn’t acceptable. I need a huge house with a big ass study for all my books that I have in paperback form.t

Okay, now the five people to tag. If you’ve already done this, you don’t have to do it again.
