Six Sentences on Sunday

sixsentences~~ Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project — published, in progress, for your cat — whatever. ~~

From a fanfic from Camp NaNo I was adding to:

“And I didn’t peg you as a comedian. I was right.”

“Annoying and snarky. A winning combination. The guys must be lining up at your door.”

“You’ll never know.”

Camp NaNo April – Day 25 recap

Camp-2017-Participant-Profile-PhotoJust five more days to go. I’m lucky Camp is ending because the weather next week is supposed to be beautiful. Even into the 70s on Wednesday. The kids are going to want to be outside. I’m going to wan’t to be outside. Taking the kids to the park or for a walk is not conducive to writing. I know; I’ve tried.

Next month is going to be spent finishing and editing some of these stories. At least that’s the plan.


Day 25: collide

It’s been a year since the took Octavia away. A year since he watched his mom get floated. A year since his entire world collapsed and his life destroyed. Bellamy’s resigned himself to his fate. In fact, he relishes it. After all, it’s what he deserves.

Working maintenance isn’t always bad. He’s mostly left alone which suits him fine. He’s not in the mood to deal with other people and their stares. Their whispers. Their curiosity. If he never spoke to another human being again, he’d be okay with that.

Today is one of those days he’s been blissfully working alone preparing an old section of Alpha Station for new residents–kids of the elite that have grown up and started their own families. The quarters here are large and comfortable. Nothing like Bellamy’s used to. It makes him sick to think of how they crammed three people into a space these people will have for one bedroom.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. He cleans up his supplies and heads back to the only home he’s ever known. He’s got a lot more space now that it’s just him. And he hates every inch of it. He’s considering what he might do after he clocks out when he slams into someone turning the corner.

A smaller someone that ends up on her backside. Bellamy can tell right away that she doesn’t belong here. At least not yet. In a few years, once she’s married, her Alpha Station Princess ass might move into one of these apartments. But for now, she’s just some spoiled kid that doesn’t know how to read the Keep Out signs.

The End.

This is set in an alternate reality where the Ark didn’t run out of oxygen, but Octavia was still found.


He turned the corner and ran smack into someone. She let out a startled yelp then fell back on her butt. Bellamy just stared down at her. She looked to be about Octavia’s age with blond hair and hard, icy eyes. Her clothes were a lot less tattered than most people he knew. Definitely Alpha Station.

He cocked an eyebrow. “You lost, princess.”

Her eyes narrowed. “What did you call me?”

He chuckled. “Princess. You have Alpha Station royalty written all over you.”

She got to her feet, glaring. “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

“No, you probably don’t.”

Camp NaNo April – Day 8 recap


Well, I’ve had an interesting couple of days with family drama, and it’s really messing with my anxiety and concentration. I’m trying to stay positive, though, and keep pushing on. Which means still writing. I haven’t broke my streak yet. It just keeps getting harder to get the words out. I can do this. I can, I can, I can.

Now that the pep talk is over…

Day 8: guard

Today’s story takes place in an alternate reality where the Ark never died and no one was sent to Earth. Everything is just normal. And boring.

Clarke and her friends aren’t exactly the most popular people. That happens when the chancellor’s son is in your group. Nobody likes or trusts Wells, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to fit in. He’s the one that talks Clarke into going to the party.

She tries to enjoy herself, she really does, but it’s obvious they’re not wanted. Running into John Murphy confirms that for her. Sometimes she wishes she could just punch him in his smug face. But when the party is raided, he comes in pretty handy because Murphy always knows the quickest way out of trouble.

Clarke’s lost Wells and her friends, but she’s also lost the guards. All she has to do is make it home without being seen. The coast seems clear right up until she turns a corner and runs right into someone tall with black hair, too many freckles, and an annoyingly cute smirk.

She panics at the sight of his guard uniform, but then realizes he’s just a cadet. She’s dealt with his kind before–dumb kids not much older than her, puffed up on a power trip. She doesn’t take crap from them. And she won’t take crap from this Blake guy either.

Of course Bellamy’s had his fair share of dealings with haughty princesses from Alpha Station that think they can get away with anything because of who their parents are. He’s not going to take her crap. It’s a battle of wills and wit. Who will win?

The End.

Hahahahaha. You’ll just have to wait for the story to be finished to find out the rest. I’m evil like that.


“You’re not even a real guard.”

“Excuse me.”

She taps the spot on his chest where the guard crest should be. “You’re just a cadet.”

Now his partner is rolling. “She’s got you there, Blake.”
