Wednesday, Day 4, Wordpress

Plague news: no new cases! The four total active cases are still in hospital. Australia's at 91.7% first vax, 85.5% fully vaxxed. Queensland's second-last in the vax stats at 85% first vax, and 74% fully vaxxed.

I have some Wordpress to summon words for and I may go on a bit about how little things can balloon outwards. Bits about what's missing in the module and what I've done to fill in the blanks. And what's happened as a result.

It's certainly an interesting escalation evolution of circumstances.

No spoilers, just what I decided and how it played out.

In the news:

  • Person of interest in the missing campers case may have altered their car to avoid detection
  • The autopsy is in, Laundrie committed suicide
  • All of China's threats might be hot air
  • Thieves rob house, dump an actual BABY in the pool. They're murderers now
  • Doorcam footage of massacre suspect
  • Dude does some extreme body mods
  • Man goes to Corona Party and dies

Story and nonsense soon.

Challenge #03224-H315: Like the Softly Falling Snow

Dan builds a larger home for himself, with plenty of room for all his adopted sons and daughters, with plenty of extra room for more kids to come and have someone to help and care for them. Melody helps where she can, when she can, and the kids start to learn what it's like to have a home, and a family that loves them no matter what. -- Fighting Fit

Challenge #03223-H314: Schoolyard Encounter

Marvins beloved daughter, Vee, is a little older now and is a child that's apprenticing for her magic and her ability to heal using magic is becoming all the more impressive. Thanks to her dad's influence, greed, or ego, has never touched her, and compassion has become the solid core of who she is. Many still seek the youngster's aid, and as she gets older, she's getting more dragon-like in appearance, though retaining her human form, and she lives a happy life

Challenge #03222-H313: Necessary Adjustments

Master Twii was taking a class on programming, taking time away from the Dojo, on a station when a lifepod, or what was left of it, docked heavily. The smoking maw of the airlock opening up to disgorge disheveled, frightened, and wounded kids, the accident had killed the very few adults that had been there. The most scared of the kids hid behind the first adult human they saw, never having seen any other species before.

Challenge #03220-H311: Pieces of a New Life

"You've been up for nearly 72 hours, again! Are you finally going to tell me what's going on?"

"Sorry, I'll get some sleep soon, I promise."

"Isn't your insomnia medicine helping?"

"I've not been taking it."

"Why not?"

Hesitation... a deep breath... slowly they turn around and present a beautifully carved statue of stone with small gemstones inlaid and the etchings reading "To my first true friend."

"Because I wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the day you took me from that
