Heart behind the mask: joining 3 livesHeart behind the mask: joining 3 lives by Karmakat01
I walk up the three steps to our front door carrying as many boxes as I can without letting them fall. The moment I walk in with our new furniture we still need to build, I see Trent giving me a disapproving look before he says, “I know your strength is…‘not the classic kind,’ babe, but…you are still not fully recovered from your rib incident. Don’t push yourself like that.”
I chuckle at him and put the stuff down in the living room. I then tell him, “I would just like to bring as much as I can before Scott arrives, and I have to start being careful with my strength.” I put the last box on the floor before I walk toward him with a smile and add, “You know, he would take it badly if I lifted more than him.” I chuckle as I take him into my arms, and he looks at me oddly. I can’t help but laugh and tell him, “Can you even imagine how emasculated he would feel if he realized that Tina can lift more than him, too?

[b] [u]Bonus 2: How I fell in love… [/u] [/b]
It’s been 3 weeks since we arrived at Massak's hometown, and the contrast between the cold of the gusting snow and the warmth of the villagers still surprises me.
We are resting in our quarters, me and the wolf I’ve started to feel very close to lately. I feel him stir in his sleep as he is spooning me with one of his arms wrapped around my chest. I feel his breath stirring my neck fur and hair as I think about recent events.
When we first arrived here, the situation we found ourselves was hotter than a snake’s back slithering across the outback for days. Not everyone was happy as a kid at Christmas that we were here. We’d come here to perform a wedding ceremony for the two best mates of my fluffy wolf. Since they are both men – the kind of real men who regularly risk their lives for others – most outsiders were dead set against it. As soon as we’d a
|dont hesitate to look inside for more work ), i love to get comments and critiques to know more. also most always open to commissions hehe|
prices can be seen here
First part: Ac report.
Sincerely it went great and it was fun. I was happy to see Wuffy, matt, Erick, goofbear, starpup, tiptoe so many other friends I can see only once a year.
Was freaking AMAZING to meet syn finally too, the rat that managed to stole tip’s heart. Hehe
And damn he is a sweet funny guy to chat with.
The sales and people themselves were great and sweet and it was a real pleasure talking with as many people as I could while giving information and pointers around the convention too.
It was sweet also to get to chat again with rukis and gneech and laugh around with them.
I also had my birthday there and it was the best one in years. Even had three of them, that I won’t mention, that did a French cancan dancing for me. But I DID record it. Hehe.
Had lots of pictures and that made the trip and custom crap worth it if you ask me.
First time EVER I had to cross border between USA and Canada on car though. We saw the Niagara Falls…sign passing by on the highway even lol.
Sincerely thank you for everyone that came passing by to say hi even. It was great and I hope to do it again next year. But FYI don’t try to just shake my hand GIVE ME A HUG hehe.
Part 2: the rant…
Yep I do have at least two rants to talk about right now that I need to get out of my chest.
Like everyone I got pet peeves and those two are like big time on my list sincerely. And NO this is not about people trying to shake my hand even if next time I just try to see how they react if I wait for them to kiss it instead of shaking it hehe.
So one of them is those people going “I am trying to do <insert something> but I really can’t afford it and I don’t want to ask people charity. But if some artist would agree to do some auction for us it would be great but I don’t want to ask for charity.”
Well to those I say TOUGH SHIT. For starter if you don’t want to ask for charity you don’t mention it a FREAKING amount of time in a journal. You just put a statement of what is happening and EITHER try to sell your skills, EITHER say you DON’T WANT CHARITY. You don’t give people POINTERS OF WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO GUILTY OUT OF THEM.
And using gofundme AGAIN? Please…there are people REALLY NEEDING IT no need to ruin the website with EXTRA SCAM guys.
What I am tempted to answer those journal would be “Try to do it by yourself FOR ONCE by selling whatever skills you and your fiancé keep advertising and SEE HOW IT FEELS FOR ONCE.”
But I generally prefer to not start this kind of chat with that kind of people, hence why I WON’T give names of who I am talking about.
Another one that nearly ruined my Ac this year is how people at first are nice with you and chat around with you. Then you realize you were “the one making them feel better because your life was worse”. Then when you finally start to get somewhere and manage to do stuff and reach some goals they start IGNORING YOU BLATANTLY or giving you a, oh so sweet, “oh it’s you…” when you just try to say hi at them.
Loved the part where they walk in front of you, look toward you like you are part of the furniture, and go on their path EVEN if they are walking pretty much in the same direction and same speed as you. Sincerely guys, ever tried to just feel happy for others? Even more when those people NEVER asked you anything but maybe a little talk or your friendship?
I know I go to convention to make contacts in the sense of making friends. Not contact in the way to be able to pull them “out of my hat” when I need them.
My point of view for those: THEIR loss.
Last one I think about for now. When you ask for a review about a book…DON’T erase it from your website because said review is not ALL compliments. Just two days ago I gave one about a book and pointed out that I loved it and what I loved about it. But I “dared” to point out some things about it too.
Well that review stayed on the website for an amount of an hour.
I had VERY bad reviews too but, even if I admit they piss me off or depress me, I LEAVE THEM ON and try to do better. Or I wouldn’t let people put reviews on my stuff.
Part 3: some questions.
So as usual with the sales of the book I am offering the free chapter one. So now my question is the one following.
Would you guys mind a “Heart behind the mask” bonus, or is REALLY EVERYONE hoping for another “So close, yet so far” bonus while I am working on the third book?
If there is a BIG request on the other one, even if it would be logic to do a bonus on “Heart behind the mask” since that’s the new book, I will see what I can do.
Would you guys want me to hold another “Ask the cast” journal?
Or what would you guys think of a kind of a small contest? Like I ask some questions about all the novels and we see who answers the most right?
For the contest I would have to think about rewards also.
So there it is for now.
In a few days we will probably start getting ready for Ef.
