Challenge #04053-K035: Help Where Possible

Wraithvine was deep in meditation when the humans shook hir roughly awake. Nearly dragging hir before ze could land. "Hurry, hurry, the cave-in was bad! No one's dead, but there's a lot of people badly hurt, we need you, NOW, my lord!" -- Anon Guest

"Not your lord," Wraithvine gently rubbed hir backside as the people dragged hir out and into the caverns. Where four teams of people were overwhelmed by the casualties at hand. This part of the area was stable. Not just propped and shored, but also re-enforced with the most robust D'varuv engineering.

People were bleeding. People were screaming. People were winding bandages, boiling water, brewing balms... it was a sort of chaos.

They needed everyone who had even the slightest mote of healing power. And, in the case of Wraithvine, anyone who could do anything to help. Well. Ze had seen much, learned much, and could do so very much more than the average Wizard that might wander the world.

Challenge #04025-K007: A Kinder Poison

A very elderly magic user has gotten a bit senile. Their grandchild begs Wraithvine to limit how much magic the elder can use so they're no longer a danger to themselves or others. -- Anon Guest

It's never nice to see a loved one fall to pieces. Watching Odasorin the Wonderous become lost in time and thereafter coming apart had not been something Aqirax had been willing to acknowledge until it got dangerous. After all, he loved his grandren[1]. And in

Challenge #04015-J362: The Bright Side of Severe Injury

They lost their legs in a wreck, honestly didn't remember the wreck, when they awakened in the alien's craft. Oddly, without pain. The first thing the Aliens asked, what did their feet look like so they could replace them? How kind...wait what?? -- Anon Guest

"My feet are badly engineered. Honestly, glad to be rid of them," Human Funz. "Ever heard of bone spurs? Fallen arches? Rheumatism?" He counted these off on his fingers. "I had nasty things happening below the

Challenge #04013-J360: An Unusual Affliction

Wraithvine, Gikka, and Bibrid disguised as a a small imp enter a kingdom where runners are swiftly going through the cities looking for a strong healer to heal the princess. Unfortunately, the situation is dire as her injuries from the animal attack are infected and getting worse. Sadly, dealing with royals is something that terrifies the immortal healer.

Challenge #03976-J324: A Cup of Relief

One leaf is brought in a small, black box. Sweet and flavorful, it has but one purpose. They are suffering. The leaf is placed in water, the tea is made. Their suffering will be alleviated and they will sleep, painlessly, forever. They knew this when asking for the leaf. Anything was better than the pain.

For those who suffer the most, for those who beg for it, there is the Last Tea. It

Challenge #03934-J282: You're Allergic to WHAT?

The Havenworlders meet a human who's actually allergic to chocolate. Quite the rarity. -- Anon Guest

There's an allergy for everything. Even amongst those raised on the same planet as the thing. One might easily believe that this is not a great survival tactic. Especially when the thing is really, really popular.

It can lead to some interesting times.

Solo Ships' Humans encounter no problems when it comes to curating their environment. They frequently have isolated kitchens in order to keep their

Challenge #03921-J269: Optimal Performance Issues

The human had trouble staying on task. They were constantly distracted or would set their work aside "just a moment," and end up having to be reminded, albeit gently, of the work they still had to do.

(ADHD is more common than people think.) -- Anon Guest

[AN: I don't have ADHD, but I do a remarkable impersonation thereof. I am willing to be wrong about this and therefore welcome any input with ADHD people who know the experience better than I]

Monday, Doctor's and Debts

It's going to cost us money we don't have yet before I even get my medication. This sucks.

Why the FUCK do we keep trying to be USA Lite?

Sigh.

I am watching the clock and consider myself ready to launch. I shall be doing the biggest offering of the day in the afternoon.

...at least they aren't making us pay to go into the doctor. Only after we get out. [Don't give them ideas dangit]

I can explain we have money

Challenge #03852-J200: A Well-earned Rest

Wraithvine introduces Bibrid to hir pet cat, Lilbit, and friends. Poor individual has a lot of healing to do. Fortunately, hir friends are as soothing as Wraithvine is.

https://peakd.com/fiction/@internutter/challenge-03739-j086-better-than-waiting-it-out -- Anon Guest

Ze had made a camp inside the abandoned house. A small fire and a kettle, and some special tea set to brewing.

"There's people suffering," pleaded Bibrid.

"There is time enough for tea," said Wraithvine. "You're dangerously close to panicking yourself into a conundrum, and

Challenge #03851-J199: The Wolf at the Door

InterNutter, you're right, this would make a good prompt.

Chain, still in therapy and being monitored by security, constantly hid behind the security officer any time someone raised their voice or appeared angry for some reason. It was obvious the security was seen as a comfort. Rather than protecting others from Chains, protecting Chains from their constant fear.

Wednesday, Wordpress and EXPERTS

Beloved is seeing the arm experts today, and hopefully getting a judgement on how wobbly things are in there. I have my fingers crossed for a fix for that nonsense, but there's an equal chance they'll tell her everything is perfectly normal and expected.

I would very much LIKE a fix because the wobbling is painful for Beloved and disturbing to the rest of us.

This weekend also features a REN FAIRE! We've been looking forward to this thing for a month

Challenge #03779-J126: Just One Little Snag

The human, expending almost the last of their energy, gets the cave set up so they, and their Havenworlder crew, manages to have at least basic food/water/shelter until help arrives, then collapses. Now it is up to the Havenworlders to keep their friend alive, for they have a massive and dangerous concussion, with only the most basic of basic equipment left. Until help shows. -- Anon Guest

Companion Xuan dug his claws into the soft fabric of Human Nol's work

Challenge #03767-J114: While You're Away From Your Body...

They're a bookworm, they thought they had died. They awaken in a place that is rows upon rows of books further than the eye could see, almost more than a mind could possibly fathom. An eternity to read them all, with comforts, meals, and even washrooms. What is this wonderous world? -- Anon Guest

It was a wonderfully comfortable bed. Darlenydd didn't really want to wake up, but the looming cluster of recollection kept poking her towards consciousness. There had been some

Challenge #03754-J101: Broken, Free

Even the CRC security were going to need therapy after seeing THAT mess. The body looks like it'd been through ten levels of hell before being allowed to die. The shaking person in the center, rocking, weeping, knife in hand, still bore the shackles of their bane, before they flipped, and freed themselves. -- Anon Guest

Their name was Chain, and they had died. They should have died. They remembered the feel of the blade, their stolen blade, slicing through their throat.

Challenge #03660-J007: Save the Warrior

The ship blew apart, the last one aboard, the human. One last message as it rammed into the enemy flagship, causing the enemy forces to be completely crippled. "One Life for the saving of millions, I'll gladly pay it!" But... what happened to the human? No body was found. -- Anon Guest

This was the battle that stopped the Vorax from using their Dreadnaughts. The Humans - in their near-eternal battle with their traditional enemy, other Humans - had come up with
