RP pt. 5 A Walk Amongst the Dead

Call-Of-Duty-Zombies-Wallpaper-02

This is a Role Play I am currently working on for the Bloodletting game. I play both characters involved. They have a love/hate relationship pretty much. If you are interested in seeing just what the Bloodletting RPG is all about, check it out at Bloodletting.org.  If you decide you want to sign up and feel like getting one of my characters a little bank for it, use the following links

(Addison) http://www.bloodletting.org/other_pages/registration.php?user=149254

(Genesis) http://www.bloodletting.org/other_pages/registration.php?user=151855

Keep in mind, Genesis is a Lycan, and Addison is a Slayer, though was a former vampire. She’s the weird one of the two.

 

Genesis:

Genesis couldn’t believe what she was seeing. Addison just seemed to wade unseen through the zombies. Some looked at her, moan and hissed, but they weren’t in a frenzy to eat her.

Genesis sniffed the air, her Lycan nose scenting things. Yes. Addison was ‘alive’. She could smell the blood from where Addison had sliced up her hands. She could hear Addison’s blood rushing through her body and her beating heart. She could feel the body heat the woman emanated. What the hell was going on?

More importantly…what was Addison?

Did these rotting things ignore her presence for a particular reason? Was it some remaining thing that Genesis couldn’t understand from the process that turned Addison from Vampire to human Slayer?

The zombies had chased her up here just like they had chased herself.

This was a lot to think over.

But it seemed that Addison wasn’t abandoning her here. That was a plus. She gave the little sh!t a hard time  more often than not. It wouldn’t surprise her if she got left here with the rots.

The platform was becoming more instable, and Genesis felt a surge of panic run through her. Those things down there, they were clawing for her, reeking mouths snapping hungrily while moaning in their need.

She picked up her piece of steel pipe in one hand, grabbing one of the support cables to the platform in the other. She tried to remain as still as possible as Addison was making noise, drawing at least a few of the horde toward herself.

It wasn’t enough though. Genesis knew when she was outnumbered, and without the ability to shift, her odds didn’t look good. All she had was her own strength in the human form and a steel pipe.

Her eyes turned to Addison, who was making progress in killing off the zombies that were drawn to the noise she was making. She even saw Addison take off her remaining shoe and chuck it at a zombies head. Her socks didn’t match. Why did Addison’s socks never match? Stupid question at the stupid time.

Addison was singing again. Louder than she had done before. It was a more modern song than the creepy one she had sung earlier. This one was much more…loud. Addison was screaming some parts. Why the hell did the little idiot sing when she was having fun? She sung and carried a maniacal grin on her face. Though Genesis couldn’t deny how graceful Addison was when fighting. The fluid movements of body and sword.

She looked below herself again when the platform gave a tremble. The herd was thinning, but still, not enough. Genesis grasped the cable she clutched and prayed for the best. And she didn’t even believe in a god. She was putting her faith in a little sword wielding weirdo who nailed chicken heads to everyone’s door.

Addison:

And the sky was made of amethyst
And all the stars were just like little fish
You should learn when to go
You should learn how to say no

Addison went about with her attacks. As the dead things started moving toward her, lurching their way, she went off in a sprint, sword at the ready, cleaving rotting heads in two. She had to keep their attention on her as much as possible, so singing a rather screamy song seemed to work. And she liked the song. It was catchy. The sword in her hands didn’t seem to think so. Yes, they had their differences.

Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever

Well they get what they want, and they never want it again
Well they get what they want, and they never want it again

Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to

She occasionally looked to check on Genesis. The Lycan was bracing herself for the worst, pipe in one hand, and holding on to one of the suspension cables with the other. Smart. That platform didn’t look like it was going to last much longer. And the bulk of the dead things were still below her, moaning and groaning and wanting that tasty little snack.

 And the sky was all violet 
I wanna give the violet more violence
Hey, I’m the one with no soul
One above and one below

Addison was able to get closer to the gathering. They would at times take a swing at her. They didn’t seem to want to eat her, however. Did she smell bad? They had no problem with chasing her before… what the hell was up with that? She used this to her advantage. She was able to get in close, taking many of the dead things down. She continued with her song. Some of the zombies came for her. She took a chance, cleaning off a piece of her sword of zombie brains and goo, and then bringing that piece across the flesh of her hand. She went about with waving that hand around, letting the scent of fresh blood fill the air along with her voice.

Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever

When they get what they want, they never want it again
When they get what they want, they never want it again

Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I dare you to

The heads of several zombies turned her way and she grinned. A few came lurching at her, nearly running, but not coordinated enough. They met a quick end. As soon as she was nearly beneath the failing platform, she went about with just swinging her sword. Not all were clear headshots. Some were just disabling shot. Slicing the legs off, or even cutting them in half at the mid-section. It would make them less mobile for sure. She head a large creaking noise, a loud pop and watched as the platform separated. The suspension cables, all but one, gave way.

 I told you from the start just how this would end
When I get what I want then I never want it again

Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, take everything, take everything

Her singing/melodic screaming grew louder, to draw more of the dead things attention to her. She had to give wolf-girl the time she needed to get a good grip, or jump down. Jumping down now wouldn’t pose too much of a threat, Addison didn’t think. She had thinned out the horde pretty well.

However, it would seem as if Fate would have the final decision as the final cable snapped, sending the metal platform crashing down to the warehouse floor, Genesis with it, crushing a good number of zombies. How did Genesis fair in this fall was the question now.


I GOT LOOT!!!

So my lovely friend Patricia sent me a loot box! Oh, so many wonderful little things inside!

Jeffrey decided he wanted in on the pic, so dont mind him. As you can see, there is some really wonderful stuff here. A Nintendo Controller Over Mitt, A Zombie Book, A Game of Thrones Action Figure, A Lootbin Pin, A Space Invaders Figure, A Tea Cup w/Spoon, an Arpon with puppies on it, some hair rollers and Walking Dead ‘Ear’ Soap on a Rope.

2016-03-08 17.36.43

As you can imagine, with what a HUGE fan of Daryl Dixon on TWD I am, the EARS!! ZOMG!! LOVE!

2016-03-08 17.36.49

 

Now, the oven mitt and Game of Thrones Figure? I barely got the chance to say ‘mine’ when quickly that thought was proven wrong as my daughter-spawn cackled and ran off with them. She is a Game of Thrones nerd. Well, she’s just  a nerd. Period.

 

Now, Patricia, I gotta ask…the hair rollers? REALLY?!?! WOMAN! You know I had to get all my hair cut off. I AINT GOT NO HAAAAR! lmao. Honestly, I do have a bit on top. What will I do with these rollers? Probably put them in my hair and go to WalMart. Just to see peoples reactions.

 

So thank you so much, Patricia!!! Everything is so wonderful.

 

Currently I am enjoying a week of peace. Okay, thats stretching it. I am between courses this week. I am starting a new one and from the looks of it, I am really going to need my brain for it. Just looking at the assignments breaks my brain. ~wails~ WHAT DID YOU PEOPLE LET ME DO THIS?!?! (remember, I warned you all I would regret this ‘continued education thing?) Honestly, its not that bad…so far. >_>

 

The kittehs are doing well. BaxterMarie isnt really growing any. She’s like a miniature cat. Its adorable, especially next to Jeffrey who is getting rather fat. They have a wonderful bond, too. The groom one another, they rough house, they knock my stuff over. -_-

 

The child-spawn is well, too, other than stealing my stuff.

 

The book, while on hold, is still making progress. Sometimes something will come to me out of the blue and it makes for a good chapter or add-on, so I write in all down in a word document. Its nice not having the pressure.

 

So, that is how things are going in the Zoe world.

 

~hugs and squishes darlings~


Severe Weather, Kittehs and Classes…

skull_kitty_classic_round_sticker-rcf19db4c8de4420e92afb11f506e76ed_v9i1a_1024

 

So, last night we had severe storms in the area. Here in Enterprise, we had a lot of strong winds, trees fallings and debris everywhere.

In the nearby city of Dothan, they had much more going on. Part of the ceiling at a WalMart fell in, lots of people without power, trees falling on peoples homes. They were a lot harder hit than we were, and there is only 20 miles between us.

 

I made sure my friends down that way were okay. Thankfully everyone was.

 

The cats are doing great. I am a little worried about BaxterMarie. She isnt growing. She seems like she’s going to be a ‘forever kitten’. Perhaps she is just a little tiny breed. Jeffrey Jones on the other hand is getting fatter by the day. YAY. And he is a proper little Sir. As I have told my friends, he just needs a monocle and top hat. He is a bit on the skittish side. BaxterMarie is as fearless as ever. Oh, and she still likes to pee in my bathroom sink for some reason.

 

So, remember back when I decided to start taking some school courses? Remember how I said I would probably regret it? Cry? Throw tantrums? Well, I am. WTF was I thinking?!

 

However, as much as it all makes me want to cry, I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have a huge class load, but I can take it at my own pace pretty much, since I dont work or anything. And these classes, so spectacular. They are definitely holding my interest.

 

I should check in more often, I know, I know. I will try to make it a point.

 

I have reconnected with some family members that I havent talked to in years as well. You see, my mom was always sort of the ‘black sheep’. She married a military man and we traveled and lived all over the place, while her sisters stayed right in the area they were born. So, we all had some distance there. And my aunts werent very nice when my mom was younger either. I remember that growing up. But things are different now. I am calling one aunt on  a semi-regular basis, and doing hand written letters with the other. It is actually quite nice.

 

Well, the bad weather has died down. We’ve had our typical weird winter weather here in the South. Temps in the 70s, tornados, then the temps dropping into the 40s. You know, once every ten years or so it snows here in April. Totally freaks us out. We arent prepared for snow. We dont know what to do other than shut down the state…lol. No, seriously. The upper portions of the state knows what to do. But not down here in the very southern most part. We all flail about and marvel at the white stuff falling from the sky. We also close our part of the state, because heaven forbid we try to drive in the stuff. You wont catch me trying to drive, no sir.

 

And, lastly, I am still addicted to the Netflix Vortex of Doom. I’ve also fallen in love with Putlocker.

 

Tonights movie: Macbeth. Michael Fassbender….YUM and DROOL!!

 

So, until next time my lovies…

 

~hugs and squishes~

 

 

 

 


Snail Mail Movement

letter-writing

 

So, I am laid up with a broken and fractured foot, the weather is either hot and humid with the random tornado, or freezing cold. Its all Patricias fault.

 

And speaking of my dear friend, it got me thinking. I really do get tired of staring at this computer screen day in and day out. Sure, email is quick and easy.

 

But actual letter writing is a dying artform. I write back and forth with Patricia through both email and snail mail. I love the snail mail. I get cute cards and pretty stationary. Yes, my handwriting is comparable with that of a serial killer, but hey, its the thought that counts.

 

So, as a request to you lovely  followers, in my time of healing, I was wondering if any of you would also like to be snail mail buddies? Please?

 

If interested, and to keep your privacy, you can email me your address or PO Box. My address is listed on my contact page. Yes, I court stalkers, I know.

 

So help a girl on the mend and keep me from going batshit crazy staring out of this window or at this computer. Send me letters! Send me cards! Send me drawings! Just dont send me body parts or bombs. 😛  .lol.

 

Now, on to the healing part. 3 weeks in the boot. Three weeks of not being able to get up and get my own coffee or food or move comfortably.

 

BaxterMarie thinks my boot is her own personal scratching post. Jeffrey Jones does care one way or another. He doesnt even get out of my way when he see me hobbling along. He wants me dead, I know it.

 

On to something altogether different – music. I have been listening to Disturbs cover of The Sound of Silence on a loop. I LOVE this cover. David Draimans voice is so beautifully powerful. I was really surprised they covered this song.

 

Another musician that has a powerfully wide range to his vocals is Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour. He can woo you with melodies and scream your head off. Its magical.

 

Movies – I have been watching movies. Both new and old. I had never seen Ravenous. Very good. I cant believe it took me this many years to sit down and watch it. Sometimes I get on a particular actor or actress binge. But my fall back is always horror and psychological thrillers. I dont really have any particual movie I want to rave about at the moment, but I’m sure in the next few weeks I’ll start posting up some movie reviews.

 

The Role Play world is touch and go. I quit one game altogether due to bullshit. The remaining game I play is touchy at the moment. There is apparantly a bit of out of character drama going on behind the scenes moving long time players to leave the game. Sadness. My characters are going strong, however.

 

So, when I go see the doctor, we’ll see how the broken bone and two fractures are healing. He wasnt too concerned with the fractures, but the broken bone seemed to worry him. He said there is a possibility that surgery may be required if it doesnt heal right in the boot. YAY…Stuck in a boot or cast even longer. GGRRAAHHH.

 

Okay my sweetlings, I’m off for now.

 

~hugs and squishes~

 

PS: Send me some mail!!! <3

 


The Boot. An update…

2016-01-25 11.27.402016-01-25 11.27.552016-01-25 11.28.10

So, since my last post, I’ve been to the bone specialist. Come to find out, I have not only fractured two bones in my foot, but I have broken another one as well.

 

So I have been BOOTED. UGH. This thing is a monstousity. Granted, I chose it over getting an uncomfortable cast that I wouldnt be able to take off for bed or bath.

 

Walking in this thing is something I dont recomment. I have nearly doubled my bodily injury since getting it put on this morning.

 

So, while I am convelsing, I had to decide what to do with my time while I get waited on by my lovely child. NOT. I really have just put a bunch of snacks and drinks in here in my office. The only challenge is potty time…lol.

 

I have broken out my stress relieving coloring books! I am also writing a little more, but mostly for my RP games.

 

Lookit my colors!!

 

2016-01-25 12.17.122016-01-25 12.17.19

 

So, I’m going to go color some more now. I’ll likely be blogging really weird things when the pain killers kick in. 😛

 

~hugs and squishes~

 


I broke myself…

2016-01-05 10.45.18

First off, lets start with the kittehs. There’s BaxterMarie with her big mouth open for a fierce looking somethingorother.

 

Baxter had to have emergency surgery not too long ago. I noticed she was going into heat, and well, she was less than two months old at the time. So off to the vet she went.

 

Come to find out, she had little cysts in her female inside parts. So, she got spayed way earlier than they like to do it.

 

She came through everything just fine. The vets office said ‘have her take it easy and rest.’ I laughed and said ‘have you met my cat?’.

 

BaxterMarie has two speeds. Sleep and wide-ass open.  Despite all the playing and jumping and shenanagans, she came through everything just fine, and Jeffrey only got scolded a few times for trying to bite too close to her incision site. He is still obsessed with her little feet.

 

Now, on the subject of feet. In all my lovely grace, I have fractured two bones in my left foot. All I wanted to do was go take a piddle, and I misjudged where the bathroom door was in the dark. I rammed that sucker so hard.

 

Now, I didnt think I actually did anything but ram it real good, and I got a big splinter between my toes that tore a chunk of skin off. But after about a half hour, the foot was throbbing and swelling. I sent a few pics of it to my daughters daddy and he offered to come get me and take me to the ER. I mean, it was 2:30- 3AM. I only live about 3 miles from the hospital here in town, so I declined the offer and drove myself.

 

Sure enough, I fractured two bones above my last two toes about an inch up. GRAH.

 

So Monday I have an appointment with a bone specialist.

 

The worst part of it all, is that I had to cancel a lunch date that I had been anticipating for weeks. Totally sucked. But rescheduling is no big deal, I was just looking forward to seeing my friends silly face.

 

So, my mobility is shot. I am coloring a lot. I am eating totally unhealthy foods that are easy to cook and dont require me standing too long. Sleep is uncomfortable because even with the sucky pain meds given, there is a constant ache in my foot. Oh, and I have to keep my two toes taped together, and because of the chunk of skin missing, I have to clean it with alcohol and shove gauze in there too. Fun. Yeah.

 

So, in light of that blunder, I have put a nightlight in the hallway so I can see. I have a regular light in the hall, but never used it. In all my time living in this house, nothing like that has ever happened. And I dont like using the hall light because the daughter sleeps with her door open for the cats and the light would hit her in the face.

 

Yeah, my house needs child-proofing for my protection…lol.


Reaching decisions for the New Year…

Animals_Cat_Kitten_Keyboard_Sleep_61984_detail_thumb

Well, with my ongoing depression and lack of motivation for damn near anything, I have decided that my latest novel, the sequel to The Road of Darkness, will be put on hold.

I have it nearly completed, but, I’m not enthusiastic about it.

So for the time being, I will be working on it when the mood strikes, and I will be blogging more instead, as well as keeping detailed daily journals and working on my little short stories. I may even toss you guys some smut snippets. Everyone loves the smut, right?

So, to all who have been anticipating The Path of Redemption, I am truly sorry for the set back. You can produce a good story if you are not feeling it. Thats my belief, anyway.

In the meantime, prepare yourselves for the antic of my cats, my kid, and the general tomfoolery I find myself on (completely on accident, mind you)

Thank you so much to all of you, and there are some of you I have a special rapport with… dont think this means I will stop pestering you!!!

Much love and squishes to you all, and a Good New Years to you…

~squishes more and drools a little~


And it's over…

As you can see from the photos above, this dreaded holiday called Christmas is finally over in my house.

 

The colorful zip tied gift was what I gave my daughter, among other things. But I always do one gift that she really has to work for. So, I used about 100 colorful zip ties to seal up a small card box with cash in it. Then I took that zip tied package and put it in a small gift box, taping it down so it didnt rattled or move. THEN…I placed that box into a bigger gift box and taped it down. AND THEN…I wrapped the big gift box, using wrapping paper and then sort of lamanating the entire thing with clear packing tape.

 

Yeah, she earned that cash. Cursing me the entire time. I LOVE IT!!!

 

Then you can see in the other photos the kittehs got their stockings full of toys. I just sort of tossed the toys on the floor in the middle of my office. I snapped a good pic of Jeffrey Jones, however BaxterMarie was having none of it. She just wanted to play with all the new shiny toys.

 

We ate, I drank. I’m still drinking now.

 

I wrote some, RP mostly.

 

I have some lovely friends who sent me holiday greetings, and my evil twin and I met for lunch earlier in the week…she gave me a Walking Dead key tag that has Daryl Dixons cross-bow hanging from it. ~SQUEEE~ Its perfect.

 

My daughter got me an Amazon gift card. I always ask for money or Amazon gift cards. I usually prefer picking out my own things.

 

I refered to this holiday as dreadful. I dont like this time of year. I get very, very depressed. And I feel nothing goes my way, and, in the true nature of that, NOTHING has gone my way this season. It only adds to the natural depression.

 

I sent my best friend an Amazon gift card. I imagine she’ll buy books. She’s a reader.

 

I slept off and on today. Between drinking. And I didnt get any sleep last night, so the alcohol induced sleepiness was helpful.

 

I’m at a stalling point in my novel. So, instead of putting added stresses on myself, and anxiety, I am stepping away from it until January. Then my editor is going to hate me. >_>

 

I want to get back into my old routine of setting up at the coffee shop and writing the day away. I was always most productive that way. Here at home I have way too many distractions.

 

So, hope you all had good holidays if you celebrate.

 

And thank you Patricia for giving me a kick in the pants. 😛

 

 


Ups and downs…

11870936_1051237054900441_2882242274011882895_n

I’m going through a weird moment.

Last night, me and some of my regions participants got together at a Mexican restaurant for a ‘TGIO’ party. We had a great time. I consumed many margaritas. Yes, I got well over buzzed. Not drunk, but wow, I felt nice. And I hadnt been out like that in ages. The daughter even came along to be my designated driver. It was great. I think I have myself some new local friends that I can actually meet with face to face for stuff.

While I was in good spirits when I got home, I decided to give BaxterMarie a bath. She hasnt had one since I got her. She smelled like a turd.

She was a really good girl. She struggled, of course, but not badly, I didnt get a single scratch, and she didnt utter one single meow in protest. Jeffrey was more concerned than anything. He has come to think of BaxterMarie as his. His cat. His toy.

He is not a vocal cat by any means. The only time he ever meows is when he see’s the gushy food can…lol. So it was totally surprising that as I gave BaxterMarie her bath (which I did in the kitchen sink) Jeffrey kept walking back and forth at my feet meowing. He finally had enough of it and jumped up on the counter to watch BaxterMarie get the rest of her bath.

She was not a happy kitteh with me when it was all done and I had her mostly dry. She went off to re-bathe herself and pout. She wouldnt even sleep with me last night…lol.

Now, on to the things that are bringing me down. It is all pretty much in the gaming world.

I have one character who has a huge crush on another. I thought the two of them were going to get together evenually. I mean, the player of the other character gave me that impression – so my character has been very flirty, in her own bashful way. She gets nothing in return. Blah.

And then, within the ‘crew’, and working with that same player on the out of character level, we have been trying to get our new recruits more active and whatnot. I’m tossing out ideas and stuff. Hell, I have been doing that with the creators of the game to get more people active in writing since they advertise this game as a writing based game. All Role Play.

I keep getting let down by people. I feel unappreciated for my efforts.

So, I decided I am just going to withdraw. No more tossing out ideas. I am feeling like when I contact this player, I am being a bother now, so I will nip that in the bud. If he wants to talk to me, or my characters (I have two in the same crew) he can contact me.

Its a pissy attitude to have, but I have been playing these sorts of text based RP games for ages now, and in every one of them, I try to get more people involved, try to inspire, try new things. And every time, people just let me down. Hell, sometimes my work or ideas have been given to others. That stings quite a bit.

So, there it all is. Blah, huh?

I suppose my attitude is getting a little more somber with the coming holidays as well. I am not a cheery festive person by nature, and the holidays always seem to bum me out. I just want them to be over.

hopefully my next post will be a happier one.

~Love and squishes to you all~


Another NaNo Down

NaNo-2015-Winner-Banner

 

Another year of NaNoWriMo is down. I went well above my 50,000 goal for an nice 64,100 words.

Now, the hard part starts. The rewriting and editing. Blah.

I have to admit, I do not have the same enthusiasm for Book Two, tentatively titled The Path of Redemption, as I did for the first book.

I need cheerleaders, people. Patricia doesnt count. >_> She is biased. <3 you, girl!

I have a new laptop thanks to my mother, since old one is really old and stupid. I couldnt even get chrome to open half the time. Dont get me wrong, it was a great laptop, back when it was new, years and years ago. I wont get rid of it. It will make a handy spare, and well, right now, until my daughter gets a new processor for her PC, she is using my old laptop for her school work and watching Netflix and stuff. She just plugs the HDMI into her TV and uses her wireless mouse and keyboard. So, old laptop isnt going to waste.

These two cats are an unending source of comedy. Right at this moment, I am in the middle of a Matrix/Inception style of fight between them.

I had plan to travel, but they got cancelled, and I’m not going to New Orleans this Christmas, so I set up a cheesy little Christmas tree so the daughter is entertained. She is going to hate me when she gets her ‘gag gift’. Well, the gift inside is real, its just GETTING TO the gift that is the gag. Yes, I’m evil and demented and have all year to think of weird ways to make other peoples little moments in time pure hell.

Well, I’ve got a plate of hot wings and pub chips calling my name.

~love and squishes my darlings~
