New Series Pages

My partner Doug pointed out that Shiv really needed his own storyline page, and Officer Pink has needed one for some time too. So I set those up, and [personal profile] lynnoconnacht did most of the work filling them in.


"Officer Pink" relates the adventures of Ansel Nicholson, a blue-plate police officer in Bluehill. He's in over his head trying to deal with supervillains, but he'll figure it out.

"Shiv" creates a spinoff page from what started as part of the Antimatter & Stalwart Stan thread. Follow a favorite bad boy in prison as he struggles to make sense of the changes in his life.

The Female Lion

Here's an article about a female lion with physical characteristics of both sexes.  She is not alone, and her ability -- which provides valuable protection -- will probably be passed on to the next generation.  So basically we're watching speciation start as a superpower gives a new advantage to a few individuals who can bequeath it to their offspring.  Awesome.  :D

Poem: "Switching Out"

This poem is a continuation of Creative Jam prompts by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer and [personal profile] chanter_greenie. It also fills the "It Wasn't Meant to Be" square in my 6-10-15 card for the [community profile] genprompt_bingo fest, and the "surrender" square in my 5-20-15 card for the Wellness Toolbox Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Pain's Gray thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

WARNING: This poem contains some intense topics. Highlight to see the more detailed warnings, some of which are spoilers. It features the aftermath of torture, severe betrayal, emotional manipulation, disciplinary action, discussion of betrayal and manipulation, disrespect of authority, laziness, envy, trust and trust issues, vulnerability, unequal relationship, emotional pain, abandonment, disappointment, self-criticism, low self-worth, emotional breakdown, messy crying, whole-body misery, need for physical assistance, unequal and unreasonable self-standards, exhaustion, and other challenges. There is a lot of power exchange, deep intimacy, and context of corporal punishment for behavioral modification even though no hitting actually happens. There's also some very interesting handling of consent, from explicit to implied. Each gang has its own flavor, and this one seems to attract kinky people. Basically, Gray's former "friend" Marcus is an asshole and dumps him because Marcus won't make up for his own mistakes. Gray hits what amounts to subdrop again. Ricasso and Thriver put Gray back together, so it ends with fluffy comfort. If you are into heavy-duty aftercare, this poem has a lot of that. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
