Heroes in the world—firefighters, doctors, police, teachers... you.
I'm a teacher. It's my passion in life. I don't want to do anything else. I try to be as much of a hero to my students as I can be, to inspire them to be heroes to others.
Please take four minutes to watch this video to see why this project and heroes mean so much to me:

Like cow paths meandering through pastures, ideas for the sequel have been moving along. I can only get so far with ideas while the school year is still in session. I get into my groove and then—WHAM—I have to grade papers or plan for a substitute while I've been proctoring AP and IB exams. The seniors finish tomorrow, and then I have until June 6 before the year ends. I hope to get into the outlining more once I can focus my attention on the details that really will make this sequel go forward.
I submitted a story to this market that wasn't accepted - no worries, it's kind of a tough story to sell but it did rather fit the concept.
Anyway, the anthology is out and getting some nice notices in the UK press. (Well, I presume the Guardian is UK. I'm 99% sure....)

Question for you scientific minded people, what effect does moving large amounts of metal ores from deep within the earth to concentrated areas on the surface (cities) have on the magnetism of the earth? I realize that the core carries most of the power for our system, but consider that the ores on the mantel have accumulated over millenia, while the bulk of the changes we have made have occured in only a few centuries and the quantities are staggering. Just something I feel no one has thought

It's a Bank Holiday here in the UK: happy hols if you've got one!
Working away on 'stuff', I thought I'd pass on a little gem that I've discovered.

Not sure if this is accessible outside the UK, though. Please let me know if it is/is not.
Alrighty, first I'm sorry for spamming the community, that was definitely not my intention.
After speaking with some friends and brainstorming a bit I'd tried to solve some of my problems and get my head more around this.
I think I shall set this in the Edo Period, but of course still in fantasy, so not historically accurate. The world will be inhabited by humans, while the Yason are more like folklore creatures that protect the humans from the shadows.
As he looks into my eyes, holding me tight.
Soft whispers to each other.
As he turns and starts to leave the room he hears me say...
In the early morning we cuddle up even tighter as the alarm goes off.
He finally gets up to get ready for work.
While I lay in bed wishing we could spend longer together.
As he leans in for one last hug and kiss, I watch as he says his goodbye and closes the door.
While all I can do is think
This one goes out to the American Tea Party who proudly wave their "Don't Tread on Me" flags. Do you realize that you have chosen for your mascot one of the most despised creatures on earth. First, the creature is cold blooded. Wait a minute, that might fit your one solution only, cold blooded approach to government. Second, many snakes are dangerous to humans. Third, the snake is associated with the fall of man. Fourth, when man was cast out of Eden, the snake was cast out as well
Picking up a wooden chair that was laying nearby she held it up by the back in a defensive stance, pointing its legs towards the demon which didn't seem too impressed by the gesture as it continued to advance menacingly. With another screech the demon raised up and lunged towards her and in response she darted forwards as well, resolving herself against its terrible cry. Ramming the legs of the chair into its stomach, she ducked and wove as its claws tried to reach around and tear into her, all
"No!" Ren cried out, pushing herself to her feet and rushing across the center of the village towards the direction of the last building Sora had crashed into. Skidding to a halt, a large muscular demon twice her height strode out before her, slamming its hands downwards like a hammer towards her. Leaping back a few steps, its crushing fists dented the tiles infront of her sending loose debris showering outwards in all directions.
"Get out of my way!" Ren yelled
In a flash of movement Ren slashed down the demons before her left and right, trying to cut a path towards the razak that Captain Miyako and Sora were battling, the rest of the squad members moving around the village as an organised group, taking down the monstrosities even though they were gravely outnumbered. Leaping high into the air, she came down with a cry, bringing Miyuki downwards to cleave through the demon before her, its snake-like body peeling in half like a banana as her her ancestral
