A Day Without Pain

A Day Without Pain

A Hatbox Short by Melanie E.

-==-

"It's the least we can do."

That's what they had said when they had come into his hospital room, clipboards in hand and curious, though not unkind, looks in their eyes.

It was natural for those who were healthy to be curious about the dying after all, and that was exactly what he had been doing, slowly and agonizingly, for the last three years.

It had started out innocuously enough, with a twinge in his temple when he would stand up or turn his head too quickly. The twinge had turned to a spike, and the spike into a burning lance, piercing his head with every movement.

For years he had devoted his life to becoming one of the most promising young talents in the computer technology world.

He felt it somewhat ironic that he would die not being able to stand looking at a monitor for more than five minutes without a morphine drip in place.

Quest for the Silver Cleric

Quest for the Silver Cleric

 

by Dorothy Colleen

 

 

"When the Empire was in flower, the Weres came to fight. The Sea-folk were threatened, and The Dead ruled the night. The situation hopeless, the battle was as good as lost. Then the Silver Cleric came to save us, no matter what the cost.”

And when the troubles returned, the Sea-folk reached across time and space to find a very special person, someone both male and female, to find to rid this strange world of darkness, oppression and misery.

Danica finds herself in a strange world with new languages, cultures, personalities and challenges on a quest to find The Silver Cleric.

TransGenderElla

TransGenderElla book cover

An old fairy tale turned on it's head;

All transgenderella wants is to be herself and go to the ball, but her evil stepmother has other ideas. When Transgenderella stands her ground, insisting that it's time to come out, she is torn down and left crying in her room as her two stepsisters are whisked away to the palace. With the aid of her fairy not-quite God Mother, Transgenderella is transformed into the woman she always was, but is that enough to bring her happiness.

Family is.. a very broad term these days [4.18]

ourIceMain.jpg Never let your guard down!
As a possibly wise, possibly insane, possibly fictional wizard once said 'CONSTANT VIGILANCE!'

I'm tempted to tack on something about 'always bringing a towel' to that statement as well, even though it's not quite relevant here and really it goes without saying, doesn't it?

Events unfold including but not limited to:
John giving a three-year-old's guide to 'politics' to an un-amused audience of one.. meanwhile, the halls are silent
(until they aren't)
and Hannah accidentally gives herself a wedgy!


 

Alexa: The Lost Recordings Vol. 1

This is a collection of short stories I have come up that feature the characters from my Alexa story, but have nothing to do with the timeline. They were all done for fun. Think of them as bloopers and outtakes, hence the title. I hope you enjoy it!

Finding Daisy Part 6

drrzFS3.jpg

Chapter 15
With so many coming over Lilly went over to the Finn home early she could help with the cooking. Daisy slept in, Miles pointed out that it wasn't right to subject her to the scrutiny of the other teens, their parents, and the teachers yet. He had a point, he himself kept his distance from her to let her get used to the others as he wasn't sure what to think about her himself.

Thundering Force: Chapter 02: “Portrait of a Fallen Senator.”

Chapter Description: Chapter Two: Now that Padme has returned to Coruscant she must now face choices concerning her future. While she also deals with the repercussions of her past decisions.

Unseen People - Chapter 6

Unseen People

A strange girl appears in the dead of night. She can’t speak or remember where she has been, what could her secret be?

Jack gets a new job, a costume, a hat and a new friend

Thanks to Robin, Chris and Jess for all their help and to everyone who reads and reviews! A special thanks to Brooke Erickson who's comment on an early chapter has led to a big plot point in this chapter.

Chapter 6

Virtually Feminine - Part 1

ruthed.png
Introduction
I wrote this story about personal growth through interaction in a Virtual World largely in response to Dorothy Colleen’s challenge to write something about a 40+ transition. I’m not sure it will get that far, but the characters are the right age at least.

I set it in Second Life, as that’s an environment I am familiar with. I was going to go through afterwards and edit all the references to some generic VR World but I think it gives it a more realistic feel by using the names and jargon from a ‘real’’virtual world that some of you may be familiar with. Of course, I don’t own Second Life ™ , it’s a registered trademark belonging to Linden Lab. I’m not associated with them in any way and the views and people described only bear a passing resemblance to anyone real or virtual.’ All copyrights and trademarks belong to their respective owners and I’m not trying to sell anything. Please don’t sue me, as I don’t have any money. Oh, and if you’re reading this Fee and you recognise yourself, I’m sorry.

"Ugh," said Energia, as she considered the problem one more time. Then, more loudly, "Anybody here able to help me with an electronics question?"

"I thought you were electrical," said Alex, smirking, as she looked away from the wide screen TV in the common area towards the young super.

Identity Crisis - Chapter 2/10: Lights, Camera, ACTION!

Desperate to prove himself and track down his mentor, Chris embarks on his new career as a superheroine and makes some new allies. But when he picks a fight above his power level in order to make a name for himself, his embarrassment over being a girl may soon be the least of his worries!

Author’s note: I would like to thank Chris for doing such a great job at editing my work. This is Actions Have Consequences from Doug’s/ Marci. To better understand Helen, you will have to wait for the edited version of Helen’s Thoughts.

Hell Of A Story

It's a tale of businessmen, paperwork, filing, and toil! And some damnation, monsters, and wacky mishaps occur along the way. But paperwork too! It's a Hell Of A Story!

A Friend in Need is a Friend in Deed -- Chp. 11 Battle of Midway

I got to know Doug so quickly in fact that it felt like I knew him my whole life. Nothing seemed out of bounds, except my dark secret. And even there Doug got to know me better than I know myself. The real me.

A Friend in Need is a Friend in Deed


by
AuPreviner

You Could Go Home Again, part 16 of 16 (end)

“Come in... did it fall through, what you had planned with your friend who was coming back early...?”

 

“You’re the friend who was coming back early,” she said, putting her arms around me. “I love my family, but I’ve had enough of their chaperoning to last me a while.”

Betrayed

This is NOT a pretty story. It might look like it takes a page or nine from Zoe's Becoming Robin and similar stories by other authors, but in the end, this is a tragedy, plain and simple. Every single warning listed at the top of the story is appropriate.

The story ends with two big scenes: a rather descriptive rape scene followed soon after by a very graphic suicide scene.

All characters are fictional, the school is loosely based on one that actually exists in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

The Unfortunate Experiences of Mike Cross, Parts 1-3


The Unfortunate Experiences of Mike Cross

Parts 1-3

This is by far one of the most popular things I've posted on TG Storytime, and very much probably the funniest. This story, in a way, takes pretty much every TG anime trope, throws them in a blender, makes fun of all of them, and offered me a chance to write a very sex-oriented story. I don't know why I did this, I don't remember why the idea even came to me, but one day I just wondered "What if a succubus doesn't want to be a succubus anymore? She'd probably possess a man assuming her sex drive would die off, right?"

Time for hilarity to ensue.

Jennie's Potty-Training chapter 31

Synopsis. Baby Jennie plays ballerina dress-up with her sister Angelica, and learns her fate if she wets her diaper at the party on Sunday. Connie comes over to babysit Baby Jennie and Angelica while their mother Isabell goes out with Ellen Green from next door to discuss Baby Jennie attending Daisy's Fairy Princess party tomorrow.

Chapter 31. “You’re Just a Baby.”

The Book of Darwin: Chapter 1

It's Christmas vacation, and Outcast corner is headed to Australia! With their vacation in Darwin planned and transport secured on a VERY heavily modified Hero Team transport plane, our intrepid heroes will discover the answers of many questions that have been alluded to before. What is the past of the Artificers? What remnants of the Five-Fold Court fall across the landscape? What is the Dream? Who is that adorable little boy who insists that spined raptors are appropriate riding animals??? What happens when Jericho learns of what nightmares haunt Caitlin in her waking hours that were born under the Australian sky?

I offer you, The Book of Darwin.

This is a Whateley Academy Canon Story

Hatbox, halfway there for February, cashflow crunch

Author: 

We just got billed early for a $1000+ bill we didn't expect to have to pay until the end of the month. So. It suddenly got a little tight.

But it's mid-month and we have almost reached half our goal for February. Thanks to everyone who has sent money and I know there is some still in the mail. :)

Laura, part 16

“Ahh…” I sigh happily as I slide my sweat-stained pink tights off my smooth, glistening legs. “That feels SO much better…”

“Ugh, I hear you,” Ashley sighs as she does likewise. “Never thought I’d EVER get sick of wearing tights…”

“Oh trust me,” I giggle, “come October, you will be BEGGING to be allowed to wear them!”

“What else is new?” Mia teases the blonde girl, who blushes as she covers her spaghetti-strapped leotard with a loose summer dress.
