Not Dead.

I am in fact, alive, and realizing I haven’t posted in nearly a year! I have an art group with a few of my closest friends, so I tend to forget to post here or that this blog still even exists. Whoops.
I’m still writing, though a tad infrequently. Got into a bit of a writing drought after December because of something that happened, and couldn’t seem to finish any short stories for months. But with encouragement from my friends, I was able to finish a short story involving one of my favorite characters (Marie Faye) in early June.

Maybe I’ll post it 😉

 

I still get notifications when people subscribe and comment, so feel free to leave any questions if you have any 🙂

Causing Suspicion.

(All characters mentioned, with the exception of Niklas), are mine. I also didn’t name Berle’s wife because I didn’t want to look up more vintage French names, which I’ve already done at least…7 times, I’m pretty sure. This was pretty fun to write even if it’s short, pulling myself out of a little writing rut, bleh.)

  • Set in 1951, Paris France. (Excuse my French, I don’t speak the language. Just some web research.)

 

 

Violette sat on the steps of her front porch, licking a popsicle as she waved goodbye to Oscar who had just gotten into his car. Just a quick visit to drop off a pair of pants he needed hemmed, but he had paid her in a box of popsicles, so she had forgiven him for the shortness of the visit.
On her left, a younger looking couple was playing with their two small children in the front yard. Tossing a ball back and forth between each other, the little ones giggling with delight when their father pretended to dramatically drop it and had to run off to catch it. And on her right sat an old married couple in their rocking chairs, Vee could feel them watching her.
Soon enough, the two got up and walked over to the joint fence, beckoning Violette to come over. Furrowing her brows, as she didn’t often talk with her neighbors, she hesitated for a moment and then joined them, smiling in greeting. “Bonjour, how I can I help you two?”
The man, named Berle, which she vaguely remembered from mixed up mail, cleared his throat and put his arm around his wife. “Well, we’ve noticed the sometimes often comings and goings of several…men. And we wanted to make sure nothing of the…unsavory sort was going on, as it would be highly frowned upon in this neighborhood.”
Shocked into silence for a moment or so as realization set in, Vee stared at Berle and his wife, melted popsicle slowly dripping onto her hand.
Were they insinuating what she thought they were?
“I am not a prostitute!” Vee blurted very suddenly, and a little too loudly, causing everyone within hearing distance to go silent.
Berle started again quietly, glancing nervously over her shoulder at the father of the family on the other side of the house. “Miss Bellamy I-I wasn’t, you misunder-”
“Ohhoho, I think I understand you just fine sir! I am certainly not whatever you think I am.” Vee interrupted him, starting to laugh at the ridiculousness of it. “And if I was, I’d have…” She stopped herself, not wanting to give Niklas any reason to worry about coming over once she told him what had just transpired. Now Oscar on the other hand…he was going to have a field day with it. Switching the popsicle to her other hand, Vee wiped off the sticky residue on the side of her dress. “I hope the rest of your day is pleasant, bon après-midi.” She turned on her heels and made her way to her front door, the last thing she heard before closing the door behind her being a small voice ask, “maman? What’s a prostitute?”
(Probably should explain why I wrote this a bit. The majority of Vee’s friends are guys, and the son of her boss(es) visits from time to time to make up a sewing lesson when she’s too busy at work. Her neighbors just apparently decided to ignore her other three female friends.)

 

There are stitches in my ear.

I haven’t posted in a long time, whoops. Sorry about that. I don’t really have an excuse…you may proceed to angrily comment 😀
But I have gotten the email notifications, so I decided I should probably get my butt into gear and say hello properly. So, hello! A few things to know about me: I post sporadically, I’m obsessed with the musical Hamilton, my hair is currently purple and blue, aaaand I am a total romantic. So don’t be surprised if any ‘fluff’ writing (as my friend calls it) pops up.

 

Characters I have been working with a lot lately and need to talk more about:

L&DS story line (Life & Death Situations. What I’m calling it for now)
Main characters:
Cecil – Death incarnate.
Oswald – Cecil’s assistant.
Eleanor – Poor girl who gets caught up in all of this.
Nadia – Life incarnate.
Luna – Nadia’s assistant.
Characters who will be at least mentioned, important-ness to the story still being debated:
Fiona – Works for Cecil in joint with Elliot.
Elliot – Same as above. These two are my children and very close to my heart. I want to do something in addition with them, telling their story, why they work for Cecil in addition to the king in their universe. Will explain when it’s all sorted (bug me about it if I go quiet)
Elvira – Works for Cecil in return for a deal she made to keep her sister alive.
Ollie – Works for Nadia. Still getting that all figured out as well, had to remove her from Ezra’s life sadly for it to all work 😦

Other Characters I will mention from time to time:
Violette/Vee – From a storyline I have going with my friend, set in 1950’s France and she is shipped with my friend’s character. They are adorable.
Oscar – Another one of my French kids, engaged to Ruby. Works as a ballet teacher.
Ruby – Is a nurse, engaged to Oscar and they are Vee’s really close friends.
Ezra – My often socially awkward, geeky agent child. Dating Denver (not my character, a friends)

And I think that’s it for now, if you have any questions feel free to comment and I hopefully I’ll post a short story soon.

 

P.S – There are stitches in my ear because of a keloid procedure I had done yesterday, didn’t think I’d leave you hanging did you?

Beautiful People February 2016: Denver and Ezra (Ezra’s Answers)

BeautifulPeopleHeader

Was asked to do this by C.B. Cook a friend of mine and of course I said yes. I mean, it’s adorable Denver and Ezra how could I not? Anyways, if you would like to see Denver’s answers to these questions you can click here!

 

  1. How did they first meet? Ezra: I bumped into him at the library, knocking the books out of his arms and awkwardly introduced myself.

    2. What were their first impressions of each other? Ezra: That he was waaayyy out of my league. I mean I know I’m not ugly, but I’m not exactly ‘model material’ either. But after getting to know him better I realized we’ve got a lot in common.

    3. How long have they been a couple? Ezra: I’m horrid with remembering things, uhhhhh seven months?


    4. How committed/loyal are they to each other? Would they break up over a secret or a disagreement? Could stress drive them apart? Would they die for each other? Ezra: Well this was certainly a jump in questions. I’m completely loyal to Denver and I don’t think we would break up over a disagreement or something like that, not over something trivial. And I would protect Denver as well as I could, I don’t know what I’d do if something happened to him.


    5. List 5 “food quirks” they know about each other. (Ex: how they take their coffee, if they’re allergic to something, etc….and feel free to mention other non-food quirks!) Ezra: Let’s seeee…. He only eats ice cream if it has chocolate in it in some form or another. He only drinks his coffee black, which how he can tolerate it is beyond my understanding. No matter how hard I’ve tried he still doesn’t like too many vegetables, and I’ve even wrapped some in bacon. The several road trips we’ve taken to see something in another town are always accompanied by his go-to snack, nuts.
    *laughing*And, at one point during a day trip the road was icy and I fed some to him so he could keep both hands on the wheel. Hmmm, oh! I’ve noticed whenever I’m over at his house that he always asks who has made dinner. Not entirely sure why…maybe in case Albany has tried her hand at cooking again?

    6. Does anyone disapprove of their relationship? Ezra: Brooklyn, his sister.
    I wasn’t sure at first if she didn’t like me or was just always like that. Nope, she just doesn’t like the fact that I’m Denver’s girlfriend. I’m still trying to get her to like me, but it feels like a losing battle.

    7. What would be an ideal date? Ezra: Nothing extravagant. Working on a computer together or renting a good movie and curling up on the couch.


    8. What are their personality dynamics? Similar? Contrasting? Do they fight a lot or mesh perfectly? Ezra: We have a lot in common, so pretty similar. I don’t think we’d really fight over something, most likely talk it out.


    9. What have been their best and worst moments together as a couple? Ezra: The best hmmm….
    There are a lot of moments that come to mind so I’ll just pick one. When I first told him I loved him over a game of checkers he kissed me and then got scared by Albany laughing, so he fell on me. I think I laughed a few pounds off that day. Aaaand the worst, uh, Brooklyn dampening the mood by not liking my presence can get annoying at times.

    10. Where do they see themselves and their relationship in the next few years? Ezra: I don’t really know where I see myself in a few years, I just hope Denver is by my side wherever I am. Maybe…with…rings on our left hands…? That, that would be nice. 

Worries.

I’ve been working with Violette a lot lately with developing more of her backstory and roleplaying with my friend who owns Niklas.
❤ Niklas, even though he’s a bit dense at times.

I’ve also been developing Vee’s best friend Oscar, who I dearly dearly love. He’s a bit of a flirt, but he has a really good heart.

 

She hadn’t been acting herself lately, Oscar knew that much at least. But it still came as a surprise to find her sitting down on the floor in the back of the restaurant, her back against the wall and a flask pressed to her lips. Violette didn’t look surprised to see him, even though it was after-hours, she merely stared at him as she held the flask in her lap, not saying a word. It was a strange sight, seeing her disheveled and without a smile on her face. But not exactly shocking, the war had ended nearly two years ago and she confessed to him that she still struggled on occasion with her choices.
But he didn’t think it was this bad.
Kneeling down in front of her, he took the flask from her hand and set it aside, asking in a worried tone, “Vee, how much have you had to drink?” How often did she do this? God, he was so stupid! She had hidden the extent of her pain so well. He should’ve been paying more attention, then she wouldn’t have had to go through whatever she was going through, alone. She was often surrounded by people, but somehow still alone.
“Enough.” She replied in a whisper, tears beginning to spill onto her flushed cheeks. He watched her for a few silent moments, his heart breaking at the dullness of her green emerald eyes that usually were so bright. Her hurt may not have been so easy to see, her few physical scars typically hidden by clothes, but it was the emotional ones that left the most impact. “Are you okay? Do I nee-”
Fists clenched, she interrupted him loudly. “Of course I’m not okay! How could I be okay? After all I’ve done Oscar, I’ve killed people, people who had families, people that loved them! And I took that away, I was given a gun and orders a-and I took that away for the sake of what? Winning? This-” her voice cracked and the tears starting falling faster as she reached up to rake her fingers across her scalp. “This isn’t winning, not even close. I’ve been damaged, and no one could want me after knowing what I was involved in. “
Oscar leaned closer and grabbed her wrists, preventing her from inflicting any more harm on herself and held her hands tightly. “You did what you thought was right in order to protect our country, and you’ve saved so many people in the process. The good definitely outweighs the bad, I need you to see that. It’s okay to be sad from time to time, but living in constant pain like this is not something you deserve, you have a right to be happy again.” Letting go on her hands and taking his handkerchief from his pocket, he gently wiped her tears away as he softened his tone. “And Violette, you are not damaged. You are beautiful inside and out, and if someone only likes you for your physical appearance then they are not worth the energy. I can promise you that one day you will find someone who sees your scars, both physical and emotional, and understands them, a man who will love you in your entirety.” He hoped for her sake his words sunk in, that they would make some sort of difference because he didn’t want her to hurt like this any longer.
