On December 12, 2012 I passed my FAA practical exam and received my Private Pilot - Single Engine Land license. That's New York City's Empire State Building from 1,400 feet in a Cessna 172.

Around, sometimes. Not so much. But not so gone, neither. Note: I tend to hop on and off the site a lot. This means that a lot of the time you see my username in the Other Users list, I've actually stopped paying attention - so don't be offended if I don't answer you in the chatbox. Just /msg me.

Good lord. E2D2, via in10se, has told me I have written over a million words on this website.


APPARENTLY I MUST NOW MAKE THE FOLLOWING SPECIFICALLY CLEAR. All my work, repeat, ALL my work on this website is All Rights Reserved unless otherwise indicated on the content itself.

what's on
what's waiting


Nodes read aloud by, er, well, me:
Weak and desperate from decades of commuting the djinn would barter all for a coffee and a friendly ear
The Raven - the Edgar Allan Porn version (part 1, part 2)
She does not know how much I need this
A "behind the barn" sort of thing
Chase Scene
...more coming. Eventually, hopefully, there will be a place/nodetype for these sorts of links; I'm assured it's in the works.

roro.

For those of you looking for things to node, I have a little list of things I'd love to see here.


Look through my eyes! See Everything2 the way I see Everything2!


Wired's Danger Room blog thinks I'm a naval pundit. Poor unfortunate souls.

Everything2 is a place I've spent too much time. Or not enough. Or both. It's a place where I don't automatically trust the facts I get - but it's always one of the first places I turn to look for them, because looking for an answer and getting back just that answer is the sterility of despair, most of the time.

There are some amazing writers here, and naturally, there is some incredible writing. Here is some of it.

The future like a corpse in snow

Why there is no moloch13

REMFS

Things nobody tells you about the South Pole

The Astronaut Gets Lucky

Ed Stories

Happy Birthday from Planet Motherfucker

We Can Meet Her For You Wholesale: A Dreaming Girl's Singularity

The #7 Train Game

Psalms of the Convenience Store Clerk: Pump Three on the Fritz Again

Hurricane Creek

Two Stories of the Pistol

I am a robot.

in which lead gliders freeze against the sun for 0981 seconds of Earth-shattering beauty

One last kiss before the long goodbye

you want to use blood; i say we use devotion

Fine Structure

If you like rock and roll, read dannye's piece in Better than Ezra, then read riverrun's I caught the football.

The Von Wicked Chronicles

Metro City Chronicles

This is jimmy, full of blood

Two Gentlemen on Veronica

August 14, 2010

How to behave at a Japanese sword show

the lovesong of distant satellites

I figured things would be okay once the werewolf started to cry

Gospherus and the Cactus


Kizor says I've been playing X-Com: UFO Defense, a 1994 strategy game and the best of its kind. One has to name a lot of soldiers to keep track of them.
Kizor says You did very well and achieved officer rank until a ground assault on a downed alien terror ship, along with iceowl, Wntrmute and some other people. There you got a claw stuck through your power armor, were converted into a shambling monstrosity as an incubator for the thing the claw injected into your abdomen, caught hot plasma, were torn to ribbons as said thing tried to leave and probably got its bodily fluids over you when it was stopped.
Kizor says Sorry about that.


Less Formal Writing mais Genius Still

2003.10.27: (I post a joke node titled Velcro Mittens in response to a discussion in the catbox about...well, you can guess.) Then:

2003.10.27 at 05:29 jessicapierce says re Velcro mittens: OKYOU TOTALLY GOT ME
2003.10.27 at 05:31 jessicapierce says re Velcro mittens: wtf is a cvelcro mittne
2003.10.27 at 05:32 jessicapierce says re Velcro mittens: uh. p.s. drunlk
(I explain)
2003.10.27 at 05:38 jessicapierce says holy crap that swodenrful, you could also use a velcro belt, just back her up to your belly & youer all set
2003.10.27 at 06:13 jessicapierce says dood thats so dirty i have to go to sleep now


Below the line: here for pride not presentation, works of mine. Read; but look elsewhere for education on the workings of the writer's craft, for here will you find only bits of textual wood, tossed aside for lack of heft and due in time to burn.


::Multi-node and related stories::

You may be here because you clicked a link in a fiction node that said 'More.' If so, this is your section. I have a few multipart pieces I'm working on, and rather than update bunches of nav templates at the bottom of each node, I'm going to have them point to here.

Park Ethereal
This is an unfinished novel that dates back almost two decades. It was my first online writing. I'm going to start posting it here a chapter at a time since the server it was on ate itself.

Override
This has hit three connected stories, which means I guess it gets to move up here. The original story, State Override, was once a series of several posts but was consolidated following editing.

The Benthic Wars
Inspired by Charles Stross, especially A Colder War. Birthed by alcohol. Nurtured by Iron Noder. There's something down there.

The I Dunno What These Are New York Magician Series (as named by GhettoAardvark)

The Angel Cycle
The Angel Cycle violates an astonishing number of Turkey City Lexicon commandments. I could weasel and say that this was because it was begun when I was very young and the need for consistent tone has done this, but I'd rather be honest and admit it's pure self-indulgence.

Working Title: Namedropping

  1. Watchman's Stone
  2. Transcendence through Anonymity
  3. Interstitial Elevator
  4. Singing Supraluminal
  5. Press Space Two Continuum
  6. Ceci n'est pas un homme, ce chasseur.
  7. Downsiding the silvered plane
  8. Retro burn for Molly Brown
  9. Colocation Felicity
  10. As the clocks were striking the hour
  11. At midnight, all the secret agents
  12. Time filled with encounters that leave no mark on us
  13. Seeking solace in a city's corpse
  14. Dreams Walking in Broad Daylight
  15. All will be devoured within the jaws of terrible time
  16. Tempus fugit non volit
  17. I heard a light sigh and then my heart stood still
  18. A sailless ship drifts adown the stream freighted with hope and fear
  19. Five miles meandering with a mazy motion
  20. A Fate turned sharply, Key in Lock
  21. A Litany of mechanistic worship and prayers for safe return
