Bio

Hello everyone. I'm Dutch, a mother of a 6-year old boy and I love both rp-ing and writing. Since May 2020 I'm one of the contests mods.

I started with writing Dutch stories in 2002, I was already 19 at that time. I joined a writing competition and that got me started. Soon I started to write down all the stories my over-active imagination came up with. I had my first forum rp experience in 2003 on a Dutch fantasy forum. While I continued to write, I stopped rp-ing when the particular rp and forum slowly died. In 2011 my love for rp's rekindled when I joined a site with a forum and I started to RP solely in English since that is the language of the site. This is also when I wrote my first story in English.

I've got a few 1x1 rp's going on this site and a couple more an another site. I've always been a fan of writing competitions and I joined a lot several of the ones that were hosted on this website. Now I get to host them myself and really enjoy that too.

I have a bachelor degree in nutrition and dietetics and I have worked as a dietitian / kitchen administrator in a nursing home until I decided to quit to become a full-time mother + writer.

When you come here to check if I'm online, know that even when I show as online I might not be able to respond to RP's. I open this site so that when I have time I can spend some time here, but I don't always end up with the time to do so.

Benjamin frowned slightly as he examined Ray. Why was her first assumption Dia had done something to Ari? He decided he could ask about it, but not now. He reminded himself that Ray hadn't been herself yesterday and missed much of the development.
An in-depth conversation about her spirits getting tangible was not suitable for this place. It was the kind of crazy-talk that could get either of them on a harsher treatment.

"We're going to have to bring you up to speed with a few things," he said, not wanting to stay completely silent on the matter. "But we'll do so in a more private setting."
They only had their rooms for that; this place had no other quiet places without any members of the staff around.
MFP #4 - OX





Haiku for the ox

ox under the yoke
burdened by many sorrows
ploughs for a new spring

by @Kassarock

With 3 votes the Haiku for the ox is the winner. Congratulations! Your entry will be added to our hall of fame.

I do want to give a special mention to The Pride of the Ox or Stolen Oxygen or Lament for a Friend, for the originality and creativity shown.

Last day of voting!
Trevor nodded and the old dragon also nodded to show he agreed with that.
After Gnol announced their presence, Trevor watched him and the unknown man interact. He noticed the hand that stayed behind the door and the watchful gaze. Good, a man who wasn't easy to trust strangers. The man reminded him of himself.

"Noble," he said, looking back. "Leave your dragon in the forest and join us. Dragons can't fit into that house and we don't know yet how this man feels about dragons." He dismounted his horse and walked it to the paddock behind the house.




Mikhal chuckled as he got down from the dragon. "No, it's never dull with her around," he stated.
He held out his hand to Meria, to help her down.

Meria, holding the young dragon in one arm, smiled at him when she took his hand. "At least there is plenty of water here," she commented when her feet touched the ground. "It cumulates... that way," she turned to look north, but didn't see a body of water at the surface. "Probably underground. But there is a slow stream west of us."




Rachel returned to the scene after a few minutes and watched Damien being helped up. She smiled and shook her head. "Getting rusty, Damien?" she asked.
Her eyes moved to the female who hugged him. "Is everything okay?"

"Yeah, sure," Michael said as he let Niccia lead him to the ones she wanted him to meet. He had seen Celebi before going through the portal, but not really had the opportunity to talk with him yet. He wasn't sure what he had expected from Star Fall, but it looked like any family reunion; just people talking and happy to see each other.

Lytse didn't react when Bia said could allow Michael to worry about him, but he looked at her when she mentioned she once had a trainer. "Really?" he asked. "What happened?... If you want to talk about it, of course." While he was curious, he suddenly realised Bia might not want to go into details. Trainer-stories weren't always happy stories after all.

Netherlu chuckled and gave a pat on her hand. "Now you're overestimating yourself. My wings aren't broken that easily. So don't worry about it. We're good." He glanced over his shoulder to Andy. "You know, my offspring made some offspring of their own with regular Pokémon. Has it ever happened one of us mated with a human? Would you be okay with that?"
Maybe it wasn't an appropriate topic, but a direct question was often best. He knew his offspring had actually been rather busy and he reminded himself he had to introduce himself to what technically were grandchildren of his.

Nethan turned to look at the musical diva's when they were mentioned. No surprise there, especially Penalopy seemed able to make friends with anyone. He nodded to Mindy and didn't give Xapher much attention as he walked off, going towards Gavin.
"I heard you made a friend," he said once he was close enough.

Mindy watched Nethan leave for a moment and then smiled to Xapher, before going to the table. It didn't take her long to spot the pastries and she took her time examining all of them. She noticed Andy join them.
"Hello, Professor Bansing."
"We're at a party, just say Andy. And please tell me what a Danish looks like."
Mindy giggled and pointed them out for him, before turning to see if Xapher was with her.

Andy took a plate and put a Danish on it, and after much consideration some apple strudel for himself. And after picking up two glasses of juice he started walking back to Frosiien.

During the drive, Mike and Benjamin filled Mitch in. He wasn't overly enthusiastic about it - especially after Mike mentioned the mission with Gaia in which he had to do a ritual he had learned that same day - but at least he had a better idea of what they were doing now.
He didn't tell them anything about his job.




The guards looked at the boy. "You're a fish; a water tank is enough for you," one of them grumbled.
"You should be glad you're not put on the 4th floor," another muttered, only to be poked with an elbow by the first and a look that held a silent warning to stop speaking.

Lily walked from room to room to see what her darlings were doing. Gaia and Rose were boring to observe now, so she let her underlings do that. She went to the last window and watched the meditating Steph.
She was joined by her assistant. "Doctor, I was informed the boy in the tank wants his own room."
"Ugh, I don't care about him," she stated. "Do I look like a marine biologist? I don't know why they bother me with it, let one of the other scientists handle him."
"He was appointed to you," the assistant reminded her.
"He's just a boring siren-boy. I'm busy with my darlings now. Prepare a... I don't know, a swimming pool for him or something, with some land and some playthings. A climbing frame and a swing or something. Don't boys like that?"
The assistant promised to take care of it and left.




The doctor who was trying to treat Daz noticed the blood drip from his mouth.
"I'm going to take him into surgery to see if I can find the intenal bleeding and stop it," he said to the agent.
The agent nodded. "We thank you for your help. The world needs to see her true form."
He took his phone to relay all the information to Mr Johnson.
"Are you okay?" Benjamin asked as he looked at Ray; he had seen her back away from Dia. "That's Dia and she's right: you should eat. If they see you're zoning out and not eating, they will add it to your file as one of your symptoms and you'll be called in for another meeting with the psychiatrist, and you just had one yesterday."
He actually had no idea if he was scheduled for one. The only appointment he knew he had was the group session at ten, for all other things staff just arranged it and came to collect him when it was time to go.
