Challenge #03070-H162: Weighed and Found Wanting

Entitlement. When one thinks of that word, they think of humans, especially stuck up females, though some males are as well, that are self-centered jerks who thinks the world should do everything THEIR way. But it comes in all forms. This havenworlder was self-centered, a total brat, and thought that just because the humans were kind to their kind and often allowed their people to ride on their shoulders to get from point A to point B safely, that the humans were a servant race and MUST obey them. After all, they were their superiors, right? Humans were just... their horses. -- Anon Guest

[AN: It is precisely "The Karen" and its effect on real people named Karen that I invented the term "Knomira". Not only is it gender neutral, but it encapsulates the usual rallying call of their kind, "I know my rights!" Corrupt that into a jumble and you get, "I knomiraah!" Boom. Knomira.]

There are, unfortunately, people who trade on their assumed fragility. They use the people willing to defend them to get exactly what they want whenever they encounter the slightest kind of opposition. Even when their own kind call them out, they refuse to acknowledge anything but their own right to do what they please.

They used to bear a common name. A more accurate term has evolved based on their shared claim. One of them is about to learn a lesson. Meet Acquirer Vidath, known to many as, "That flakkin' Havenworlder Knomira." Usually, after the fact that they quit their service for good.

Human Karyn knew the type. She had used the lure of knowing her rights before she learned the corollary responsibilities that came with them. The right to remain delicate came with the responsibility to accept one's own limitations. The right to be strong came with the responsibility to protect the weak. The right to enforce one's will on others came with the responsibility to accept all of the consequences. That last lesson was about to come to land on Vidath. Karyn was going to make sure.

Plague news: Five new cases, all imports. Thirty-two total, twenty-seven in hospital.

That's some scary numbers. The waves happen overseas, but they still wash up on our shores.

Challenge #03069-H161: Steep Repair Work

Hello InterNutter, long time reader, first time poster here. I was wondering if you could give us the other sides' view on this? How the parents, and students, felt and viewed things as they were being forced to watch the videos showing their actions and her pain? What the CRC's reaction was seeing something like that happen in their schools? How the witnesses who watched the trial, and the others following with the timeline, reacted to it all? How the administrators thought

Monday, Day 0, Fan-firkin-tastic

Plague news: One local transmission, zero imports. Twenty-seven total cases and twenty-six of those are in hospital.

...yaaaayyy...

I need to poddle along to a Chemists and get myself some saline for the nebuliser because I am almost out of the dang stuff.

The F-key on my keyboard keeps popping off and I may have to get a new keyboard at some point. Depends on how annoying this gets in my future.

Today: house unfuckening, 500 words, and the daily instant. If

Challenge #03068-H160: We Agree With You

HAH! (Heavenworlders Against Humans!) stated as an small movement which mutated into an organisation that had only 3 "simple" demands/ goals

1 Rid Alliance space of humans

2 Restrict Greater (and lesser) Deregulations to their own space and strictly guard and monitor their borders

3 Return to the peace and safety that was pre Human Alliance.

the Alliance was at a loss as to what to do with this steadily growing absurdity, as Heavenworlders had never recorded instances of *rofanticising past civilizations.

Sunday, Day 1, Stream

Plague news: twenty-six total cases, and all of them are in hospital. Yikes.

Toasty's doing a stream sometime real soon now. I wait in eager anticipation of that nonsense.

Didn't get any coding done yesterday because out and about trying to get stuff. We did get most stuff, but not the one thing that I had absent-mindedness about.

It was hollandaise sauce. They didn't have any. Ugh.

Not looking at the news. Just focussing on having some literature done before an early

Challenge #03067-H159: Take Only Pictures...

Animals go extinct constantly on Earth due to habitat loss and human misuse of the lands and animal stocks. Thanks to the paradox of time, and good ships, they came since the earliest era, and animals being driven to extinction due to human actions were collected and taken to pristine worlds where they could thrive, being careful to introduce the animals in a way that didn't harm, or alter, the local ecology, but rather where the animals could integrate into the ecological

Saturday, Day 0, Feast Day

Plague News: Three new cases, all imports. Twenty-nine total and twenty-two in hospital.

Mum's got a sore arm and has trouble raising her jab arm because pain. Otherwise, all seems relatively well.

Today, post-story, we need to do stuff. The dinner plates are going extinct, so we should get another cheapo set from Kmart. There's also something I forgot to get and still forget now.

Like... I remember that I remembered when I was scoping out the fridge... but I forget what

Challenge #03066-H158: Stolen By the Fae

Especially at the beginning of integrating humans into the Galactic Alliance, there are still humans that have never been to space, don't really need any training. What do a fierce crew who have 2 (as many as you want) death-defy-ing humans think of this? do they visit earth and see this? or is a human with no training forced out into space. how crazy can a human with no training be? probably just as crazy but that's not the point lol. Chaos

Challenge #03065-H157: All Life Feeds on Death

"How do you think I feel seeing you eat a salad??"

A die-hard vegan's ship crash-lands on a planet that's what appears to almost be a haven world, lots of small animals, lots of plant life, absolutely paradise. Except...that the vegan sees a plant suddenly snap shut when an animal gets too close and the animal is eaten.

The cogniscents there are green, skin, hair, eyes, and they move with a slight rustling. They are descendant of carnivorous plants that have

Thursday, Day 1, Continuing nonsense

Plague news: twenty-one total cases, twenty of those are in hospital. That's a bit of a scary leap.

Today, Mayhem has a PLN to learn how to fix electronica. Starting with a friends' mouse. We all gotta begin somewhere. I have a PLN to go to Costco and get myself some prawns.

I used the last of my supplies to try making a keto version of Special Fried Rice, and... I'm the only one in the house who was willing to eat

Challenge #03064-H156: Shall We Play a Game?

Anyone who ran a table would understand. -- AmberFox

[AN: Yeah nah that's a bad sesh there. And maybe bad management]

The life of the game master holds many roles. Storyteller, co-ordinator, plot-weaver... and primary parental to a group of people with the collective intelligence of a tadpole. It wasn't their fault. Not entirely. Players in a game this complicated had other things to concern themselves with between sessions. They had lives, errands, work, trivialities, and assorted nonsense that obscured their memories.

Therefore, I am on call in case things go pants.

Whee. Fun.

  • Delta strain conquering the UK

Challenge #03063-H155: Handcrafted Hearth

Do you think, to prove it is love, not just an infatuation, he stays there? He learns to make musical instruments and presents to them to her for her approval or not? He starts to take singing lessons and asks to do duets with her? Maybe even introduces her to others as lovers and helps take care of tiefling children, all the while making it clear that he believes he owes HER, not her owing him, for the gift of her music

Tuesday, Day 0, Teething Issues

Plague news: Premier's twitter says two new cases, government site says one. Either way, they're imports. Either twenty or twenty-one cases, depending on who you prefer. Eighteen are hospitalised.

The delay in story production yesterday was owing to me asking a question that lead to an entire day working out enough kinks in the app so that I could publish things to it instead of the house-of-cards master file threatening to crash my compy. Or the editor it's in. Either of the
