Life's A Chibi: Trashing Projects by o-kemono

This is something that NEEDS to be shared with all artists in all places. Why? Because O-Kemono has it right! Sooner or later ALL artis...

Life's A Chibi: Simple Repairs by o-kemono

Another very true piece. This one happens to hit me very close to home because it reminds me of different things that people have fixed...

The Starter and The Expert by o-kemono

TRUTH! With this piece the artist shows us clearly how some artists can not only feel but react as well. Within the artist description ...

I've finished round one of edits for MMR, including application of edits. Beta 2 is currently reading it and giving me feedback. I feel like I'm procrastinating because while I do want to read my novel and know I need to so I can see how it reads, I really don't want to. I had ordered some books a couple weeks ago and they've all arrived and I have a couple of books otherwise that I'm wanting to read and some of them are from the library so I don't have a ton of time with them so I'm speed reading some books and putting off some in my personal collection and it's a little insane.

Luckily most of the books I have in my collection that I'm currently wanting to read are collections of short stories so they should go fast. I'm currently reading:
Fangs - a vampire short story collection
American Gods - Neil Gaiman - regular book, slow going and very thick,
Dresden Files - Jim Butcher - blame LTGDomo for getting me hooked. I'm on book 7 and the digital collection of the library has books 7 through 12 in a collection so I have all of them there. >.>
New Paths to Animal Totems - lupagreenwolf is on my currently reading shelf on Goodreads, but I haven't opened it because I want to give it the time it deserves and that means not being distracted by things. Hoping to get to that very soon.

I've got a bunch of books that I want to read this year. And I've got a bunch of projects to start working on. And that means I need to move my butt and read MMR and start plotting things for coming months and get working on things. It's not that hard, really it's not! Time to work on things. Maybe I can get more than I think done today. Hmm...

Chapter 22: Reasoning With Hell

            There had never been any reasoning with Devlin. Not when we were kids, not when he found out he was a shifter, not as an adult. I doubted there would ever be a way to reason with Devlin because there was nothing he really respected. Except power, but that was apparently only if you were a shifter. Not a werewolf.

            "Down here. You'll be safe down here. So long as I don't get out of my cage, but that's never happened, and I doubt that even then I'd be a threat to you."

            "Duval, what... What is all this?" She asked.

            I smiled and opened the hidden door to what acted as a sort of panic room, but was really a full moon room. "I'll explain once I've locked myself in the room." She nodded and watched as I walked into the cage with my cooler and locked the cage behind me. "Come in and make yourself at home with your cooler."

            "Why are you locking yourself in there?"

            "Because I'm a werewolf."

            "You... I always thought your scent difference was because you lived with Devlin!" She laughed, sounding relieved. "I... I can't believe all these years I was wrong. And I was worried for nothing. All these years I was worried about what you would think or do if you found out about me and I was wrong to think all of it."

            "What are you going on about?"

            "Du, I'm a shifter! I have to change when the moon is full, like a were-"

            "Like a werewolf, yeah. I know how the whole shifter thing works. Devlin's one."

            "Inherited or forced?"

            "Devlin inherited his shifting from our dad. We used to spar out there in the basement so we'd be able to protect ourselves. At least that's what dad always said. I've often wondered if it wasn't because he wanted me to know Devlin's weak spots in case he ever changed and I needed to protect myself from my own brother."

            "The moon is really close to peak."

            I nodded. "Mmhm. We should talk more about this later."

            "One more question."

            "Shoot."

            "Is your being-"

            "Sorry to interrupt, but it looks like now would be the best time. And since Angeline really is a shifter then that means I can lock us all in here and do whatever I want with her instead of toying with her or just killing her like I was going to do if she was human."

            "Devlin, don't you dare touch a hair on her head! If you do I swear I'll get out of here and kill you."

            "You're locked up all nice and tight there and I know once you shift here in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1." I changed as he counted down and the next thing I knew he was standing there, stripping and talking. "As I was saying. Since you're changed then there's no way for you to get out of that cage. If there was you already would have been escaping that cage and I'm betting that once you became a werewolf dad ended up redoing that cage to hold both you and mom so those bars have to be strong enough to hold not one, but two werewolves, and dad would have thought ahead and made it strong enough for two fully grown adult werewolves. So if you really can get out of there then I'm betting that the opening is only big enough that you can fit through if you're a human because you wouldn't dare want to risk getting out and harming innocent humans or letting your secret out, now would you."

            He was mocking me. Nothing but mocking me. He knew he was right and so did I, but I didn't want to let on. I looked at Angeline who had shifted while staring at me as Devlin spoke. She was still staring at me and her fur was as white and mine was grey. She was even more beautiful as a fox than I imagined she would be once she told me what she was. Devlin shifted while I was looking at Angeline and he was naked. The last of the skirt she had been wearing was still around her fox form, just waiting to fall off when she moved.

            Devlin smiled and shook himself out, stretching before jumping towards Angeline. She was smaller than a normal fox, so she was able to easily run away from him. I panicked, looking around for some way, any way, to get out of my cage and protect my fox. It didn't matter if she was my girlfriend or not, she was my friend and I felt a stronger connection to her than I ever had with anyone else. I barked at her, pawing at the bars of my cage. She waited until he was going to pounce at her again and she took her chances at ducking between the bars and staying in the cage with me.

            Angeline and I just stayed there and eventually curled up together to sleep through the moon. Devlin stayed there, watching us all night. I stayed curled around Angeline and she stayed snuggled up against me. It was the best night's sleep I'd had in years.

Chapter 21: Continuing the Job

            It shouldn't be this hard! It was never supposed to be this damn hard! I was supposed to be the stronger one. I was supposed to be the leader. If he beat me then maybe he really did beat Demeter. And if he did beat Demeter that means that he's the rightful leader of the gang, but the gang is only shifters. Demeter should have killed...

            Killed... Kill... Killing is good. Killing is the only option. Hunt. Kill.

            The next night came quickly and Duval and Angeline were back in the basement, but this time they were in a side room that I didn't recognize. The others were hunting as usual, mostly just running around with each other so no one was alone, but I slipped away to see my brother and Angeline. It was the best time for revenge. Duval would do what mom had apparently done and lock himself up somewhere deep in the basement. From what I'd overheard from the night before it sounded like Angeline would probably be there and be defenseless. If Duval didn't have someone around to watch and make sure he didn't get loose then he would have to have a great lock or cage or something. Meaning Angeline would be outside of the cage or whatever it was in case he lost his mind and then she'd be completely defenseless.

            You're mine. There's nothing you can do.

Sorry it's a day late, folks. Had Catfish time this weekend and him and a friend were over yesterday so I didn't really get a chance to post.

Enjoy Devlin's turmoil.

I have some ideas as to when things will be written...

I also have ideas in my head for things to come in :iconwordsinourveins: Wish me luck.

If you want more details on things I'm doing feel free to ask. Peace for now.
