Ficly Blogger-In-Chieftess

I am a self-proclaimed member of the LoA (League of Awesomeness): Mistress of Well-Intentioned Indecision.

Special Needs Teacher, wife, mother of two, center-brained, imaginative, pragmatist. Sometimes I sing. Sometimes I take pictures. Sometimes I doodle or make stuff.
I just have too many irons in the fire.. I like fire.. it is pretty and warm.. I like to dance and sing by the fire, but I am careful. I always remember who I am.

I am Mistress Elshanor of Hawk Manor, Head Librarian, Keeper of the Secret Passageway to Mount Krully, and Keeper of the Ficlinomicon AND Kevin Lawver’s Pen. I think..

  1. Men and Paper

    When she was Victoria, she was sexy. The ink flowed from her pen onto the page smoothly as glass and dark as the imaginary nights she filled with passionate phrases. Tonight, thoughts of Gerome with his flawless pecs and skin like milk chocolate filled...

  2. Leaving the Popsicle Stand

    Nothing was going right. When I most wanted it to rain, the sun shone, highlighting all my imperfections; when I needed silence, traffic zoomed by; when I wanted to be alone, people surrounded me. Others tried to tell me what I should do, what path to ...

  3. Made Up Words Are Best

    He always said all the right things. It was like he had a user’s manual to my personality quirks. When I was being coy, he told me I was sexy. When I am petulant and peevish, he tells me to chill, and sometimes covers for my ill humor, saving my ...

  4. Storm of Despondency

    I sat in the sand, alone. My hair lashed out behind, whipped in the fierce wind that drove the dark, heavy clouds in and the tourists away. Squinting my eyes that were already scratchy from the drying tears upon my cheeks, I hardly noticed the stinging...

  5. Comfort Zone: A Metaphor

    The Prison Guard only lets you have one hour with me. Thick plated glass separates us, with one thin wire to connect. You can get out any time. So I ask yet again, why do you stay? “I have shelter, food, and a thin wire to you. Without these secu...

  6. Best Party Ever

    A million universes collided in that kiss. A million emotions raced through my veins on waves of adrenaline, emotions I never knew I had. He disconnected his lips from mine. Then he quietly and slowly walked away, like he didn’t know what else to...

  7. No More Lies

    The after party was so packed with students, I soon lost Amber and Steve. I began to feel hungry and spied a table of finger foods. It had been picked over already. Grabbing a bag of chips I didn’t entirely hate, I turned and came face to face wi...

  8. After Prom

    Prom night was full of the hullabaloo we all expect, photos, gushing moms, make-up, corsages, and deep, thrumming bass echoing out into the evening from a packed gymnasium made up to look like we were inside a champagne glass. It’s not that I did...

  9. Before Prom

    The next two weeks were a blur. He was absent a few days, which made me sad, but it also gave me time to clear my head. I aced three tests and two papers, securing a 4.0 for the final semester of my life as a high schooler. But it felt like the end of ...

  10. Invitation of Fate

    I couldn’t believe Amber didn’t see that! But since I didn’t want her making a big deal about how I should ask him to prom, I just swallowed the whole scene. This is unfortunate because I needed someone to help me interpret his moves....

  11. 7 stages of grief (no repetition)

    Denial, No it cannot be Pain, Untrustworthy Anger, How dare you accuse me Depression, I am nobody Adjust Upward, Life is okay Work Through, each day Hope, Sunshine out to play Seven stages of Grief, in rhyme Healing from the past, with time Challenge m...

  12. Mr. Right: A Dream?

    Amber sat in front of a small stack of prom magazines at our lunch table. She went on and on about how Steven had asked her and I needed a date and dress because I could NOT miss my senior prom. “I’ll just go stag. I can still dance, and wh...

  13. Values Conflict With Desire

    I understood that there would always be a girl easier to catch than I. Plenty of girls had been caught up in his gaze, and like moths to a flame, they flirted with him, desired him, had him, and then left him, all of them burned. This is what kept me s...

  14. Chemistry

    Second period chemistry remained the highlight of my morning; stealing his attention for 50 minutes of the day, my secret victory. Man, was he good at appearing unavailable-but-still-looking. He flirted with all the girls, his posture lounging open to ...

  15. This Doesn't Mean YOU, No Way (no repetition challenge)

    Who is impressed by your flowery language? Not a single person. When will you realize that people don’t care about fancy synonyms? Why race to utilize every word in the dictionary? There are plenty of completely normal choices, many far less fuss...

  16. Guide To The Spirit World, Check

    “You’r time ees up,” called the woman in silks and scarves in rainbow colors. I stood and stretched, my neck and back popping. She had said this was to be the last time I could look in her mirror, but I knew I had to come back, no mat...

  17. Herb Tulliver: Voodoo Revenge

    Herb should have known not to trust the voodoo witch. As he fell to the floor, he felt his own blood gush out with each beat of his bypassed heart. His eyes went wide and he tried to figure out how this had happened. He had made no mistakes. The phone,...

  18. Herb Tulliver: Revenge

    The doll cast a large shadow on the wall for a microsecond with the next flash of lightening. Herb didn’t see it as he reached in his pocket for the velvet box from the jeweler. He’d saved up and had a small dagger crafted of pure silver: s...

  19. Herb Tulliver: Tonight

    Perhaps it was the adrenaline rush, or perhaps the fact that he had overslept and been late to the jewelers, but Herb knew he felt off. He decided, rather rashly, to push forward. It had to happen tonight. The weather agreed with him. A huge lightning ...

  20. Herb Tulliver: Adrenaline

    “I have to take a copy of this to my heart doctor for a follow-up.” Herb excused himself from the relieved eyes of his coworker Devon. “Well, I’m glad to see you! Ask that Doc when you can come back.” “I will.”...

  21. Herb Tulliver: Alibi

    Herb had made friends with a doctor long before his heart attack. He’d met Caleb in college, back when Herb had tried to get into medical school on his own merit. Always bullheaded, he thought he’d gain a professor’s recommendation le...

  22. Herb Tulliver: Paper Threat

    Herb woke, but the sun was already up. He checked his watch, but he must have slept through the alarm. Rubbing his face, he squinted out the car window. Movement caught his eye. His ex-teacher reached into the mailbox to send out some cards and pulled ...

  23. Herb Tulliver: Stakeout

    Herb knew she was smart. He watched the patrol car drive a loop around the block for the 5th time. She’d put the arsons together, picked up on the subtle clues, and was nervous. This was going to make things a little more difficult, but no matter...

  24. Herb Tulliver: Hideout

    He knew he had won over Madame Esmerelda when she took the hair. He also knew he’d never find her again. She’d move her hut for sure. He was the kind of customer she liked, not a repeat, a one-time deal. Phase Two of his plan now complete, ...

  25. Lab Partners

    Mrs. Ziebar assigned lab partners by passing out cards. You had to find the person with the same number. I got the 2 of hearts. He had the 2 of clubs. In retrospect, how fitting. I knew nothing about him, but he looked like he could care less about che...

  26. An Angry Guilt

    I feigned happiness as I took huge bites of my sandwich. Amber had no idea how peeved I was inside. I tried to give my friend at least 75% of my undivided attention. But my eyes kept wandering across the cafeteria to him. Across the way sat the guy who...

  27. Herb Tulliver: The Test

    “Have you no respect for your elders?! Why is this lady so old? She will die soon.” “Not soon enough.” “Revenge, then. And this food is all you offer me?” “It’s enough to last you a season at least! Month...

  28. Herb Tulliver: Voodoo

    “Madame, legends tell of your great power. Most don’t believe, but I do. I wouldn’t have come this far if I didn’t.” Herb figured a bit of flattery, compounded with his offering would win the witch over. “I bring you...

  29. Herb Tulliver: Seeking the Grass Hut

    Herb rolled to a stop at the edge of the world. The dry land gave way to wetland grasses and muck. As far as he could see, what appeared to be solid islands of grass were really just growths in a sea of brackish water. Somewhere further east, along thi...

  30. Final days of Herb Tulliver: Fire

    Herb was released on cloudy day in May. The weather suited him just fine. He needed to make some plans. First, he needed to retire from the fire department. It had all been a cover anyway. That phase of his life was over. He turned on his computer and ...
