My story is due Sunday though I have permission to take a little longer. It is done. Ideally, I'd like it back by Sunday but Monday or Tuesday will do. It's 4416 words. It needs a quick read over.

Any takers?

I am behoind on my drabbles but have had some issues these last few days - I will do them and back date them all. I have some other things to get done first.

alexcat: (Default)
1. You can ONLY answer Yes or No.
2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages or comments you and asks. -- and believe me, the temptation to explain some of these will be overwhelming. Nothing is exactly as it seems!
3. Copy and paste this into your LJ, delete my answers, type in your answers and tag all your friends.

Yes or No )

Title: Without Excuse
Fandom: Sherlock Holmes
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: August 2017 Drabble. Prompt: Shame
Summary: Watson simple wants to know why.



Watson knew he was angry at Holmes more often than not. The man had no shame when it came to getting his own way. He was enough to try the patience of a saint. And John knew he was no saint.

He had not imagined that Holmes would actually be jealous of Mary! And he had no problem showing it to both of them. He’d made excuses to Mary but, dammit, he would have an explanation!

Holmes was staring out the window when he arrived at 221B Baker Street.

“Why?” Watson asked him.

“Because I want you here. That’s why.”

Title: Going Home
Fandom: Tolkien
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: August 2017 Drabbles. Prompt: Go
Summary: The time to sail has come.



Lord Celeborn watched the sun set in the west, just as he had watched her ship sail years ago.

How many years could he wait and still not go? Would the west always be there? Would he?

He wondered if she thought of him at all. He felt like a part of him was missing with Galadriel gone. He had grieved so much when Celebrian left that it was a physical pain. A tear welled in his eye. At least the two of them were together now.

He let the tear fall.

At last, it was time to go home.

Miss Julia Takes Over (Miss Julia, #2)Miss Julia Takes Over by Ann B. Ross

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Miss Julia and this one is as much fun as the first one. Hazel Marie is missing and Miss Julia can't get any satisfaction from her local law enforcement so she hires a PI to help and Little Lloyd hunt for his mother. The fact that Uncle Vern is trying to get custody of Little Lloyd doesn't help either.

Many adventures and misadventures ensue.

Another not to be missed story with Miss Julia

Berried Secrets (Cranberry Cove #1)Berried Secrets by Peg Cochran

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read this one for my cozy club at Facebook.

It was cute but it seemed a bit contrived at times. I did love all the info on cranberries and bogs and her baking made me want to try the recipes. I did not like her stepmother. she was a very un likable character. The murderer was also more pathetic than menacing.

Having said that, many foirst books in a series are not as good as the later ones so I'd be willing to read another one.

Title: Rituals
Fandom: Babylon 5
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: August 2017 drabbles. Prompt: Cleansed.
Summary: The Minbari have a ritual for everything.



John Sheridan was tired of rituals. Delenn’s people had more of them he could count. Courtship rituals, rebirth, eating, sleeping, praying, dying… you name it, the Minbari had a ritual for it. He loved ceremony as much as the next guy, but it got old.

He was having dinner with Delenn tonight so he send her a message that he needed to shower before they met in the Zocalo.

“I should come to your quarters,” she said.


“Your mind should be cleansed as well as your body and we have a ritual...”

“Fine,” he answered

His laughing puzzled her.

Title: Protection for All
Fandom: MCU
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: August Drabble Prompt: Union
Summary: Captain wants something for his co-workers.



“We need what?” Nick Fury asked Cap.

“A union, for those who work for S.H.I.E.L.D., especially those who are not enhanced. It’s dangerous work and they need protection in case of injury or illness,” Cap said as he laid out his case.

“But we already take care of those things.”

“What if you’re not always director? What if the next director isn’t as interested in his people as you are?”

“It’ll never happen! I’m here to stay.”

Cap shook his head. “Think about it. You never know what can happen.”

“If it makes you happy, but it won’t happen.”

Title: A Decent Man
Fandom: Supernatural
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: August Drabbles. Prompt: Decent
Summary: Dean’s never thought of himself that way.


“Decent!? Did you hear that, Sammy? She said I was decent.”

Sam shrugged. “Sorry, Dean. I know it’s not what you want to hear, especially the way she looks but she’s right. You are a decent guy and I suspect she thought she was doing you a favor.”

“I’m a drunken wastrel!”

“No, you’re a drunken hunter, a man who puts his life on the line so regular people don’t have to know what’s out there. You’re willing to do what it takes, day in and day out. That makes you decent.”

“I am too good for her, ain’t I?”

Title: The Best Blessing
Fandom: Stargate: SG-1
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: August Drabble. Prompt: grateful
Summary: Jack has much to be thankful for.



Jack O’Neill cast his line into the small pond, sure that he’d never catch anything but happiness. He opened a bottle of beer and took a long swallow while it was still ice cold. He sighed and sat back in his lawn chair, enjoying the stillness and quiet of his favorite place.

Being here made him grateful for everything.

Being a part of the Stargate program. Teal’c. Daniel. All the worlds he’d seen. All the brave souls he’d met. Being Charlie’s father.

He was most grateful for her. Without Sam Carter, it would all be like ashes in his mouth.

Title: The Talcum Mystery
Fandom: Indiana Jones
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: August Drabbles. Prompt: Powder
Summary: Indy is really just an absent-minded professor.



“What is that smell?” Indy said as he came into the bedroom.

Marion frowned as she fiddled with her earrings. “What smell?”

“Perfumey. Odd.”

Marian didn’t smell anything.

“You got any new powders? New perfumes?” Indy was sniffing like a bloodhound. When he sniffed close to her, she smelled it.

“It’s you!”


She sniffed his cheek. It was actually quite nice and manly.

“Where did you go today?” she asked.

“The barber—that’s it! The talcum powder that he used when he shaved me.”

“Oh! How nice. What’s the occasion?”

“Got a big date with my very best girl!”

I am desperate for some help. We need a new host for OEAM - not Aplus because we already tried there.

I need someone to move the site for me...I hate to let it die but I have no choice if I can't find somewhere new to put it. Lunarpages is trying to sell us an expensive plan by threatening to shut us down and I fear that will happen soon as we already went through all this one time.

If you can help, let me know ASAP.
