Japan - Autumn Leaves Geisha

Sentence Me

Seen all over: Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence.

(Yes, some are longer than a sentence, but dialogue should stay in one piece [g])

~ Waving a negligent hand, he replied, “And yet here you are. Really, Doctor, you must learn to let these things go. It is not good for your health to dwell on the past.”

~ "Think Amanda, but with fewer moral qualms, an ace up her sleeve, and a Derringer in her garter," Methos instructed the other man. "Lovely woman." The sarcasm could have been cut with a knife.

~ He looked at her a little suspiciously, but continued with his story. “It’s almost like a shard of ice, and when you put it your mouth, it reacts to the saliva and dissolves into a vapour that’s absorbed through the skin! Bloody amazing!”

~ Laughing softly, he replied, "If I were your father, I'd be locking you in your room and fetching a shotgun and a minister."

~ “Reebar swizzle sticks not withstanding, massive blood loss takes the longest to recover from for one of us. Any dizziness?” His lips twisted with grim amusement as she nodded. “You need to be careful. If you faint, I won’t be able to keep my minions from swooping down on you.”

~ “Erotica, love, erotica,” he corrected in lofty tone before pouring more scotch into his glass, grinning unrepentantly.
Methos - Easily Amused

The Very Last of the Five Things

I already did this here, but strangevisitor7 tossed me five more. so last round!

1) Norrington and Sparrow (the cats)

We rescued Sparrow just before we moved out of the house in Carmel six years ago. Nin and I were on a real PotC kick at the time, and wanted t name her Jack, but she was a girl. So I thiught of Sparrow. Norrington, we got as a kitten from taselby. We thought of calling *him* Jack, but he looked so prim and proper in his little gray morning suit fur, Admiral Norrington came to us. Plus, he was always chasing Sparrow around :)

2) Nin
My House Elf and Heterosexual Life Partner (my former boss dubbed her that. Both him and Nin were big Jay and Silent Bob fans, and apparently that's in a movie)! Nin aka ninjababe and I met on the Forever Knight IRC channel about 14 years ago. She asked me to beta her FK/X Men fic (little did i know she'd be trying to force comics on me for ever after!) About a year later, she got on a Greyhound bus and left TN for CA. She moved in with us, my mum found her a job, and we're still together all these years later.

3) PW conventions
The PWFC holds small cons regularly for club members. I went to my first one in Reno, where I met robi_travels actually. It's a great way to see a new city and visit with friends. And Peter being around isn't half bad either :)

4) Collaborator - co-conspirator - writing partner.
The 'Bloodties' series initially started out as a collaboration between me, ninjababe, aka_arduinna, otterevil, and yarrow_blue 13 odd years ago. We shared one big Highlander/Forever Knight universe. after that, I went back to my solitary self :) Then strangevisitor7 borrowed my character Charlotte and I don't think she's giving her back anytime soon! So now, I'm collaborating again. Which I'm remembering how fun it is to do.

5) Tony, Ezra and Charlotte in Bali (this last one is a bit evol I know as that is the story that must never be told)
