FOTD "bulwark" + MALT: "war games"

long time no post! HI, GUYS! :D

Author: hi_falootin
Prompt: Flavor of the Day : Bulwark
Extra: MALT! PIP dared me: I want to see Jason do a non depressing thing!
Word Count: 181
Rating: G
Notes: Jason's POV. And Howie's in this one!

Mosi is the brains, Howie is the muscle, and I'm the look-out.

Mosi is the brains, Howie is the muscle, and I'm the look-out.

Our fortress is a desert cave, which Mosi tells us is made of limestone. She tells me to crouch down behind the stalagmites near the cavern's mouth and keep my eyes opened. A good look-out is the first line of defense.

"What am I watching for?" I ask.

"Intruders!" says Mosi.

"What kind of intruders?"

Howie bangs a broken stalactite against the cavern floor and lets out his battle cry, which sounds about the same as his normal wolf howl. It echoes, bouncing around inside the cavern.

"How about coyotes?" he asks cheerfully.

"Too easy," says Mosi. "We need more of a challenge."

"How about Sand People?" I ask. Once you get far enough away from the town, Painted Valley does start to look a little like Tatooine.

Mosi makes a face, considering it.

"Dragons," she says finally. "You're watching for dragons. They're trying to storm our fortress."

Mosi's the brains, Howie is the muscle, and I'm the look-out. And I'm looking for dragons.

I don't know...they'd come up with something though :)

and oh yeah, almost forgot--I finally got an index of my stories up at my (rarely used) writing journal, finally:


could you add that to my entry on the profile page when you get a chance?

I labeled it Dee & Jason since that's what you had on the page and I don't think I've seen you attach a title to it. Let me know if you want something different

that's perfect, I don't really have a title :) I might be mixing it up with a new cast of characters soon so I just labeled it something easy to remember

lack of titles seems to be something most of us are guilty of ;)

I agree with Mosi. They should totally keep an eye out for dragons. Though Sand People are pretty awesome. XD

Awesome job. I really enjoyed reading this piece.

Aw, I really liked this! I love how coyotes were too easy so they resorted to dragons. 8D

I love the correlation of the first and last line.

I'm glad to see Jason again!

Beautiful little piece. I like how the beginning and end summed it up and the middle exemplified each role.
