Chase the Wind Chapter 13 by Drakkammer and Pabu

Life goes on in spite of everything. Sometimes when you think you might die from the pain of it, something, or someone comes along to soothe the hurt and make you remember that it’s worth living after all.

Kili is from Ireland. Fili is from New Zealand. They never intended this to be more than a fling, if that. But they both need more to heal broken hearts and broken bodies.

Can’t recommend this highly enough — the story is great, and the illustrations are magnificent!  Go, read, enjoy!

The next chapter is out and I promise some laughter and sweet romance to help ease the sting of Chapter 11. :)

Smirk  verb \ˈsmərk\:
to smile in an unpleasant way because you are pleased with yourself, glad about someone else’s trouble, etc.

Smirk (smɜːk)a smile expressing scorn, smugness, etc, rather than pleasure. “Old English smearcian; related to smer derision, Old High German bismer contempt, bismerōn to scorn]”

Smirk: Smile in an irritatingly smug, conceited, or silly way: he smirked in triumph. “He grinned, and one of those male, self-satisfied smirks slid onto his face.”

Smirk: to smile in a silly or unpleasant way that shows that you are pleased with yourself, know something that other people do not know, etc.

The deal with “smirk” 

  • It has a rather negative connotation.
  • It is not a positive, friendly smile, so it is not a (positive) substitute for it.
  • It can be both a verb or a noun yet it is preferred not to overuse as a verb 
  • I would define it as a “smug, condescending, mocking” kind of smile.

A smirk is NOT a smile, a chuckle, or a grin. There are not many substitutions for the word smile, but there are ways to smile that will keep your writing from sounding repetitive.

Good luck with your writing. Smile is a tough one to find other definitions for but you definitely do not want to have a nice character smirk. :)

CHASE THE WIND CHAPTER 11 - DRAKKHAMMER & PABU

It’s dinner with the family and the opportunity to meet Kili’s mother as well as his uncles Thorin and Bilbo. It’s a relief to find that Dwalin and Ori will be there. Fili is so nervous he’s wondering if he will be able to eat anything, but having a couple of familiar faces will be comforting.  When it comes to meeting family for the first time everyone needs all the comfort they can get.

Thank you for being so patient and waiting for this chapter and art. Sometimes real life gets in the way of fan life. I’m sure you’ll agree that Pabu’s magnificent art makes up for the wait.

 Kili used to be a champion BMX racer, but now he rolls on 4 wheels instead of two. He is learning to deal with life in a wheelchair. Fili is an artist who was betrayed by the one he loves. He’s learning to trust again. Fili and Kili are NOT brothers in this modern AU.

Bagginshield Modern Day AU: Fides et Veritas

Faith and Truth said the gothic letters right beneath the school’s coat of arms. Faith and Truth to and for everyone, that was what they told their students, what they asked them to make their maxim and right until now, Bilbo had done his best to make them his too - well, that was until that new/old head master made it more or less (actually rather less) clear that he was not exactly fond of Bilbo. But still - the year that first seemed to turn into a nightmare, soon proves to be the landmark of Bilbo’s life and the greatest adventure of all.

I’m currently reading this and can’t put it down. It is extremely well written. It’s works like this that made me start liking Bagginshield.

CHASE THE WIND - Chapter 10   by Drakkhammer  Illustrated by PABU

No drama, just drawing closer and closer, learning about one another and making adjustments both physically and mentally. Relationships don’t just happen, they must be nurtured. Fortunately Fili is very good at nurturing.

If you are new to this story - Kili was badly injured by a drunk driver and is now learning to cope with life on wheels — 4 wheels as opposed to the two he was used to as a BMX bike racer. Fili is a gentle artist from New Zealand who has his own injuries to heal. Together just maybe they can make it.

Romance in Rio by hold_on_a_sex    
 CHAPTER 23 — Wedding. 
You Really Really should be reading Romance in Rio: 
"Hi guys! I’m a disabled athlete (track) and I decided to give this a go. I am not at Paralympic level, so I did a lot of research on life at the Paralympics :) Before you start reading, I wanted to give you a rundown of who has what disability. 
Dean has moderate quadriplegia from a spinal cord injury—he has some feeling in his trunk, especially on his right side, and moderate movement in his arms. One hand is completely closed, but the other hand can move and grip some. He has a PCA (personal care assistant) named Chris. Both of Aidan’s legs were amputated just above the knee when he was five, and he uses a wheelchair rather than prosthetics.        Adam has leg length difference—his right leg is about six inches shorter than the left. Graham has cerebral palsy on his left side, and so has impaired movement and a noticeable limp. Richard is completely blind and has been since birth, with very little light perception in either eye. Jed has cerebral palsy on both sides, but it is relatively mild and he walks unaided. James has Friereich’s ataxia, with muscle weakness in his limbs, and he uses a wheelchair for distances. Orlando is fully paralyzed from the waist down.


Modern Adean AU - very very romantic and sweet. :)

CHASE THE WIND - Chapter 9  by Drakkhammer. Illustrated by Pabu.

Betrayal is bitter and stays in the heart longer than on the tongue. It takes work to let it go and open yourself up again. Bodies are not the only things crushed in an accident. Self-confidence can also be a casualty. It takes time and acceptance to rebuild what was destroyed. It also takes a partner who needs support as well. Their path is not well marked but together they are exploring it. Together they are working to heal.

Kili used to be a champion BMX racer, but now he rolls on 4 wheels instead of two. He is learning to deal with life in a wheelchair. Fili is an artist who was betrayed by the one he loves. He’s learning to trust again.

Fili and Kili are NOT brothers in this modern AU.

thegreensorceress:

Thank you so much, dear! I’m so glad you enjoy them! Thank you for reading and your kind words!

I think they are some of the best storytelling around. If you are used to cookie-cutter stories that don’t have anything new, start with  Rent-Boy and you will fall in love. Fili and Kili were never better. They aren’t brothers, so everyone can read it in comfort.

Tumbler should know about this book, it and Ginny should never be forgotten. The TRUE story of:  The Dog Who Rescues Cats.
Philip Gonzalez had lost all interest in living after an industrial accident left him disabled. A friend suggested he adopt a dog.Reluctantly he went to the shelter, where Ginny, a badly abused one-year-old pup,quickly won him over. Philip realized immediately that Ginny was no ordinary dog—she had an amazing sixth sense that enabled her to find and rescue stray and ailing cats.There’s Madame,who is completely deaf; Revlon, who has only one eye;Betty Boop,who has no hind feet;and Topsy, a paralyzed kitten whom Ginny found abandoned in an empty building. Ginny and Philip have now rescued and found homes for over 200 cats, and they have over 60 “outdoor cats” whom they visit and feed twice daily. Even more than extraordinary, Ginny’s angelic mission has given Philip a sense of purpose and a new lease on life. You will never forget the true adventures of Ginny, the dog who rescues cats.

Gigantic and Impeccably Lit is one of the funniest stories I’ve ever read. And totally out of character for me…it’s RLF, but I can’t help thinking that everyone in it would laugh their ass off it they read it. Well, maybe not Richard…he’d be too busy blushing. He’d be complimented…but blushing. This hysterically funny story has far too few hits, so come on over and have a giggle.
