RIP Stella

Stella taught me that zombies are people who are alive and well but have had their minds overthrown by magic incantation.  The look like they’re dead sometimes because it’s real bad for your health.  What most people call “zombies” are merely animated corpses.    I asked KBD if T8 had been brought back to life likeContinue reading “RIP Stella”

Garment industry > necromancy

After I left it occurred to me that I never considered if Jackie was actually capable of reading minds.  Does that mean I’m getting jaded?  Doesn’t seem good whatever it means. I called Jackie’s contact who he said that his necromancy consulting fee is $800/hour.  When I said I couldn’t afford that and he hungContinue reading “Garment industry > necromancy”

Part 15 – Trouble with the curve

One time there was this book called Freakanomics.  It made the claim that the drug trade is the world’s worst pyramid scheme.  This book outlined that the street dealers, who take most of the risk of getting shot by rivals and/or getting sent to prison, make less than minimum wage while the bosses at theContinue reading “Part 15 – Trouble with the curve”

Part 7 – Smile through your fear and sorrow (j/k that’s a terrible idea)

What Cassie can tell Grace about the ring is that it’s the wedding ring of Andrea’s sister.  You guys remember her right?  She was a police detective and she found out about magic and her husband died and she got transfer to work for a fake FBI division to keep her quiet and she hadContinue reading “Part 7 – Smile through your fear and sorrow (j/k that’s a terrible idea)”

Part 4 – It’s hard to tell laughing and crying apart without sound

Grace and Huddie are in her Rav4 outside a much nicer apartment building.  Grace has a momentary flashback to being one a similar stake-out with Christie Lane – lurking outside an apartment building on a raining night.  Nothing much looks the same, and Huddie isn’t telling bad jokes, but it’s enough to evoke a sadContinue reading “Part 4 – It’s hard to tell laughing and crying apart without sound”

Hard way

I’m dipped out of a loop across Georgia and Florida to swing over to Tallahassee to see Kim.  Not Killer Kelly Kim, the other one.  I tried to sneak the philosophical concept of killing and its possible justifications in casual conversation.  He saw through me.  He asked me who I wanted killed.  He likes peopleContinue reading “Hard way”

Death be not proud

The plan is for Lance to “investigate” for a few days.  Then he’ll tell the Texas Confederate Mafia that he has found the Robert Lee gun thieves holed up at an abandoned farmhouse.  The ATF will be lying in wait for them there while simultaneously raiding their weapons caches.  The ones they know.  There areContinue reading “Death be not proud”

OOC – What happened to the mouse?

My intent was not to worry about Sanaa’s fate but then I realized that Grace wouldn’t just leave her hanging even though she’s the worst, not Amazing Grace no siree Bob. So then I wrote a thing where she finds Sanaa and she’s all murdered up to fit into the theme of everything being horribleContinue reading “OOC – What happened to the mouse?”

Speed 3 – Snakes on a Bus

42561 and I were outside of Plainview when I saw an empty bus by the side of the road.  It didn’t look like a Greyhound or other bus line but it wasn’t a school bus either.  Maybe it was a church bus or associated with a camp.  If 42561 was driving she wouldn’t have slowedContinue reading “Speed 3 – Snakes on a Bus”

Why not SuperGIRL you traitor?

The sheer amount of information online with instructions on how to make friends or what to do if you have no friends is depressing in and of itself.  Are there really that many people out there that have no one?  I thought social media was supposed to be handling this?  Is it possible that somehowContinue reading “Why not SuperGIRL you traitor?”
