This is going to be a short and sweet update for #WriteMotivation. April is here and the goals for this month of insanity are as follows:

Netrider:Fiction ~ Day 14 #AtoZChallenge

Slider touched her arm. “Listen, it’s none of my business, and you don’t need to tell me one way or the other.” The sideways look she shot him made him catch his breath. He sat up and tried to lighten the conversation. “But, I’m going to blame my human blood for the fact that you keep beating me but, you know, elf pride and all that.”

The last twenty four hours the two of them had logged so much game time that at one point Xaun made them turn it off for one hour to prove they wouldn’t die without it. It had been ages since Slider enjoyed the ease of not having to guard his words around someone his own age. He was glad she’d finally accepted his apology.

Mother: Fiction ~ Day 13 #AtoZChallenge

“Who’s there?” A worn female voice called without unlatching the door. He’d heard it once or twice before but it had been lighter, full of love and energy. The change in tone was one he recognized. He’d sounded that way once.

The Beast was chuckling. The bastard never knew when to shut up and leave him be. Karl cleared his throat. “Mrs. Martin? Is that you? It’s me Karl Evans, a friend of Amberr’s.”

Levi and Lucy: Anime A to Z ~ Day 12

Sadistic, Cold and Cruel due to the hand fate dealt them. Yet underneath the monster each of these characters displays a deep love and devotion for those that they consider family. They each develop strong bonds of affection toward people who wile not blood related come to mean more to them than any blood bond can signify. The tragedy is that each has had those they loved and their chances for a normal life yanked away from them by circumstances beyond their control.

Are they monsters of their own making or merely tragic figures brutalized by the cruel whims of fate? Could they have chosen a different path?

A T M Spells Jackpot

While skimming attacks – where a skimmer is attached to an ATM card reader to gather PIN data – which steal an individuals personal data, this attack enables the attackers to empty the ATM machine itself one fell swoop. So next to identity theft and skimming, where the reward is limited to the contents of a victim’s bank account; this type of attack is just shy of a lottery win for criminals.

A Narrow Escape (FOTF part 3)

Her mind screamed at her to move but for whatever reason her legs missed the message. Completely revealed, the Guardian Mech towered over her. In no way, did it resemble the shell of the statue that previous stood on this spot. None of the tales Largo told had imparted the true beauty of the deadly design of the programmed killer before her. The urge to examine it more closely glued her in place. In her mind she pried open the exterior casing and chassis to marvel at the inner functioning.
