“Oh my god, your hair is just so silky, isn’t it? How do you do it?”

There were hands in Ivy’s hair. She sat up straight and still. It was a pleasant tone of voice; whoever it was seemed to be just trying to be friendly. But still, they were touching her hair. She twitched her head so it came out of the person’s hands and moved slowly so that she could see who it was. She stayed silent.

It was Maureen, the most beautiful, blonde, popular girl in the school, now standing with her hands on her hips and a teasing smile on her face. “Ivy, right? I mean, your hair is just perfect. What kind of conditioner do you use?”Read more... )

Prompt: [community profile] rainbowfic Moonlight 3, Moonrise; Antique Brass 14, I guess we can't even pretend to be normal, huh?

Angel dreams.

Four moons on the horizon. She can only see three, but she knows there is a fourth, in that logic that explains things in dreams. They are in the same place, and they are in a line, and they are circling each other, endlessly, endlessly.

The moons descend on them. The full moon descends on Angel, rests upon her head, falls into her, filling her with silver light.

Rating: hard R? for sexual activities between two characters who are both under 18 and some profanity
Prompt: [community profile] rainbowfic Tyrian Purple 10, the face that sailed a thousand ships and Heart Gold 17, Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering.

Maggie ducked into the school, darted into the girls’ bathroom, locked herself in a stall and pulled off her backpack. She changed quickly; she’d gotten pretty good at this, the last few years, since she’d begun to properly assert her independence and not actually wear what her mother picked out for her at school.

Of course, she couldn’t wear her real clothes out of the house. There’d been enough screaming matches over that. Maggie was learning to pick her battles.Read more... )

I just thought I should make an official post for this piece so that people new to my fiction would be able to find it. I'm rather happy with it; it's a supernatural/urban fantasy mystery short story.

Bigfoot Hunting

This isn't hugely important, but I want to note that since posting this story I've changed the name of the unit (since I'm writing a lot more in this world) from Special Crimes Division to Extranormal Crimes Division.
