Wasn't it you that required a "donut" to sit on mate ?

Or was that Lag ?



I have no recollection of the events of that day your honour.
Sounds like Lag.... yeah, go with that!

Hi Mockingbird! So nice to get the message that spring is here from you!!! The birdies have been chattering on for three weeks now so I knew it was coming.

Thanks for suggesting the avatar! Great idea!

Gordie, you are awesome. Thank you for reformatting for me! Anything remotely technical actually makes me cringe inside so I hope you know my appreciation is BIG


Next time you see me, I will look like a brand new person.

Today's episode: The Seeress's Secret, part 3


“Seeress,” began Seer Ethenral, “let me see to…”

“No, Seer,” she interrupted gently, “I only require rest and solitude.”

“Of course, Seeress,” he said reluctantly, turning to go.

“Seer Ethenral,” she said. He turned. “Please ensure your acolytes speak of this to no one. None at all. It is very important. If they require a Command I will see to it when I am recovered.”

“As you wish, Seeress.”

Gaalen stayed behind for a moment, unsure what to do. Erring on the side of caution, he said, “I will be just outside the door, my Lady, should you need anything.” Gaalen hesitated a moment, then turned to go.

“Stay, Lord Braeghe.”

“Seeress?”

“Would you help me lay down?”

Confused, he walked over to the bed behind her. He supported her as she brought her legs onto the bed and lay back. Gaalen was not prepared for the shock of seeing her face when her hair fell back away.

“Father of mercy, Seeress!”

Siere’s face now resembled the girl’s from before; bruises, cuts, a split lip, purple welts. “Is it so awful?”

“I am surprised you are conscious, as I was of the girl.”

“I’ve endured worse.”

“What…what is…I mean to say,” Gaalen fumbled.

“What happened? Isn’t it plain?”

“Somehow you transferred the girl’s wounds to yourself,” he blurted. “I thought you had just made them disappear.”

“Somehow?” she tried to smile, but her swollen lip and cheek made it look odd instead. “Yes, I Took her wounds. In truth, I Took the entire experience – the wounds in her mind, also. But not even tamborae can make the consequences of such violence disappear entirely, Lord Braeghe. They can be transferred, expedited, even diminished, but in the end they must be borne, one way or another.” She spoke deliberately, as if she was straining under a great weight.

Gaalen stared, putting it together. The girl had been beaten and violated, that much was clear. Was she saying…?

“Yes, you see now, don’t you?” A spasm wracked her, and she cried out quietly, clutching her belly.

“Sweet Aomm.”

“We can speak further of it later. Now I must ask a favor of you, Lord Braeghe. Please bar the door so we are not interrupted.” Gaalen did as told. “There should be restraints in the closet, please retrieve them.” She gasped again, her voice becoming tight. “Please hurry, I do not have much time.”

Gaalen found several straps of leather of varying sizes, resembling pieces of a horse’s bridle. He brought them over.

“Bind my hands and feet to the bed, please. There, and there, both sides. You will find rings to use under the frame.”

“My Lady, I don’t understand.”

“Please obey, Lord Braeghe...”

Against his better judgment, he complied, gently binding her wrists and feet to slots cut into the frame of the simple cot as quickly as he could.

“You must make them tighter, please. I am not made of glass.” Her teeth were gritted now, and she had begun to shake.

Gaalen shook his head, but did as she instructed, only hesitating when another spasm caused her to cry out once more.

“Seeress, please tell me what this is about.”

Hi Jacy, don't let the haters destroy your spirit, you guys have a very special bond here. Anyone hating is just a bitter loser.. to put it bluntly


Hate is such a weak emotion.

Hm. Erm. Did I miss something?


Isn't the Shed where we go to get away from haters?

Theme is...Mondays Don't Have To Be Blue!

Hm. Well, I can post another episode if you like, but it ends on an even BIGGER cliffhanger.

Oh. She mentioned on the previous page about people hating on another thread. I just wanted to remind her to keep her spirit alive regardless of what people think

Hey!! I have somehow missed that reply from knowledgehunter??? Going back to re-trace my steps for a moment.

Yes, a member was really hating on The Shed in another thread...continuously, and baiting the OP. Later I saw that a Mod had intervened. The OP was very kind, and someone whose threads I enjoy reading. Handled it well and ended up defending Night Star and myself. I can message you the thread link if you like.

Gotcha, now the post makes sense, thanks. Jacy, I'll always take a PM, of course!


Sounds like it was handled, though, and Shepherd doesn't need to unleash the Flock.

Oh hey hunny, thank you!! (I missed your post when I was replying to Shep I guess)

I was upset when I found The Shed being 'dissed' in a random thread that I had popped in to read. The OP is someone whose threads I enjoy. Anyways, I made a response and then later Night Star did too...but she missed what happened later.
The member started going on about our group of sheddites, stupid dragon cookies picture, stupid birthday/anniversary threads...and then mocked me when I explained how the thread started as a short story, and 3+ years later we're still here. It seemed really personal so I have no idea why this member was so nasty about us...and also why he/she knew what we talk about (lurk much?).

Anyways...lost my train of thought so will just stop and hit 'enter'.

Hello my Lovlies!

Don't worry folks, Jacy and I had our feathers ruffled, but we can still fly. The shed still stands in all its glory with the wonderful people who make it what it is...our home and sanctuary.

Jacy, thanks for pic! Love it!

Happy First Day of Spring Chirp! I thought we had a new person when I saw your lovely beach avatar.

Hello Gordi!

Hello Timely!

Zos, your avatar is wonderful! I still love the one you before this one too! I like what you said about giving people a little extra love today. That's something that everyone could use I'm sure!


Shep, loving the story! Good Lord, what will happen next????


Hello Hunter!

Hears a voice yell out "wake up Elfie!" LOL! I'm here Hun! Peeks out from behind the tall budding tree. I was just out walking with the wolf and the winged wildcat.

You forgot to mention the dragon cookies. LOL! I mean, who doesn't like dragon cookies? Sheesh! The dragons even bake them themselves. I think that's pretty special.
