    Maybe if I wanted to plagiarize:

    "Aldiborontiphoscophornio! Where left you Chrononhotonthologos?"

    ROFL (I'd like to see the next sentence.)

    I've heard God doesn't play dice with the universe, but people sure do.
    "Please accept the return of this book with my apologies," the note said. "I kept it far too long."
    "Preposterous," Mrs. Lophander breathed.

    Long absence, please forgive

    "The winds of change came. I wish they wouldn't have waited until I got fully dressed!"

    "The little creature watched the star bloom in the sky not knowing it meant the death of its' world."

    "The alien looked down on the world and thought who will clean up the mess the humans had made?"

    returning from an absence entirely too long..........

    She drew in her breath sharply. "Why," she trembled with rage, "might I come other than for the good of my country?"


    She pursed her lips. "May not be the truth of the matter, but you don't want to know the truth..." she trailed into a whisper.

    Really like this one-first question-where's the creature if he's not on his home world?


    Here's one from one of those "wow it had such a great start and now I'm stuck" moments-it's from a story called "The Hunt"

    The fingers dipped into the oil and came up. Darlena took a sniff and nodded.
    "Yeah, it's the one we're looking for."



    Also, this is from my story on these boards "Isis Maxis:Investie for Hire:

    have to admit it was a unique sight. The papers flying over my head in an obscure dance pattern.

    After a hasty re-read....

    the Queen Clutched Her Chest In Mock Surprise, "what! Not For A Family Reunion?", She Cackled Raucously. Nils Maintained His Watching Brief.

    "look," Molly Remonstrated, The Crucifix Grasped Tightly In Her Fist, "there's Only One Way Out, And This Is It."

    The alien is on the night side of his home planet as the light and radiation from a nearby supernova hits.

    Okay, thanks. I was thinking he was maybe on another world visiting and watching his world blowing up from afar, not knowing his world had just ended. What you posted works just as well.

    Darn Medication

    Definitely caught my attention.

    Mistress pursed her lips. "Do not play games. I want the Stone," she said, her stern gaze as adamant. "It is the only way to..."

    hmmm, don't know what I was going for in the above....that's why she trailed off, methinks.

    "We are rains that flood the waters, we are fires that burn the sun. How can you ask what nothing is?" said the voices.


    Btw, Nils, I heard about your win in the flash fiction contest! Congrats!!!

    "How dare you!" Isadora shrieked, stepping back in horror, "what claim lay you upon it? It was my birthright, as you well know!"

    "Damage is a state of mind," Padraig declared, wading into the fray.
    Marten could only shrug and then followed in his wake.
    Passers by milled into an evergrowing mass around the prone form upon the pavement. Jilly was inexplicably drawn to it, with a sense of foreboding.
    Can't......stop.......

    "What do you want?" the Dean asked, "No!...Stop, and think first. Now.....what do you want, really?"
    Ok, enough.

    Thanks btw. I am instigating (I like that word) a new comp. on Monday. Will you enter? (Dare you enter?)

    If you don't you can Beta mine!

    Mistress rubbed her brow wearily. "Yes. I know. But the land needs it." Her eyes flitted to Nils, and then back to Isadora uncertainly.

    Bridget gazed quizzically at the pictures, fingers grazing them gently, as with breath. "That's impossible..." she whispered in disbelief.


    Very good word indeed.


    And I might.............I must think about it. Right now I'm being hunted down by reviewers for my fanfiction who want me to finish the stories im writing, so I don't have a lot of time....but we'll see....

    And beta-ing ( is that a word?)...might be fun.....

    Again, we'll see......(i've said that a lot....i think i'll stop talking now...)

    He felt instantly the tension that filled the air, his hand moving swiftly to his sword hilt. "Remove them!" the Queen hollered, as she turned.

    She prayed that the dream would continue, swept up as she was upon the wave of euphoria that could never inhabit her waking hours.
    You can edit yours now! "She eyes"?

    "Isadora! Always selfish," she hissed, clutching her own sword as well and stepping towards the queen, eyes dancing with flames.

    The night was a blanket, dark and comforting. And the stars were tiny holes through the fabric, through which we saw other worlds.
    No muse....



    lol see??? I suck at beta-ing anyway!!

    Nils' fear heightened, having disemboweled two of the Queen's guards virtually unknowingly, his instinct alive. He dropped his weapon fearfully as The Mistress swept past.

    As dawn forced its way over the horizon Mordred considered his final chance to repent. "Who wants to live forever, anyway?"

    He did.
    No, I'm sure you don't.

    Btw, I notice your Avatar's changed?
