Morning Intrepid Readers~!

Everquest Landmark

I went touring a little on a couple of zones and found some really fun stuff out there.

Loved the lattice work over his back patio. Even had a fake pool!

This place was perfect for the dry zone I was at. Loved the fans and the nice porch!

View of the porch (with rocking chairs!) and the entrance to the interior. On the right is the main entrance. Look at the way he made the neat window and the picture you can see through it. Nice effect~!

Even has a sunken living room. And he made an actual room divider screen! I could live here. :)

Next door was a lovely church. Loved the exterior detail, You'd really think you were in Texas or Mexico. :)

This one cracked me up! Las Vegas type sign, baby. This is the back.

The front just rocked. And he had fake fountains that spewed fake water and looked fabulous! You can see a couple there at the bottom.

This guy had an awesome basement hidden inside his place. Look at the cool ladder leading to the control room for a ceiling crane. Lovely!

I'd heard of these sample walls, but this was my first time running into such a huge one. So impressive!

This is what caught my attention in the first place. His Tattoine outpost/single home look! He even has a speeder. :)

My latest inpiration - rainbow stairs. Aren't they awesome? Finding the colors in the minerals and stones was not as easy as you might think. Gold/Yellow and Orange were troublesome.

My giant pit and the first full roygbiv.

Bad news though. While I was off at A-kon, my rent dried up (you can only pay upkeep for a week - I thought it was 9 days!) and my claims collapsed. Was able to recover everything and put my claims back down, but the saved templates are very hard to deal with. Haven't had time to truly try to put it all back. Wah!

Happy Father's Day, ya'll!

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."


(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”


“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”


Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
