that’s almost too cruel
I had to do this once with Privateer II: The Darkening. It gained a bit when he said “I bet you didn’t play it through, I bet somebody just told you how…” and I was able to smile gently and say “God, possibly, since I wrote the game.” And plainly the Deity was with me that day, as I happened to be carrying docs from my UK agent (who’d done the deal) that showed not only that I was the writer, but the five-figure sum I had been paid. …It was a happy day for me. Not so much for him. I’d never had a referent for the word “slink” for a full grown male before. As in “slink away in utter dejection.” I smiled for at least three days without stopping. And am smiling now… I had completely forgotten about this.
Reblogging because “I beat the game” is fantastic, but “I wrote the damn thing” is even better.
Here’s where he meets prince charming

'Til chapter three
I need to get a life
I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel
The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.
Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.

After the boys left, Regina struggled to catch her breath the curse had knocked out of her lungs. As she turned around to glance at the girl who chased the attackers away, a concerned voice dissolved her foggy thoughts.
"Are you alright?"
Regina’s vision focused on the blonde. That Griffindor idiot, she thought.
"Go away, Swan," Regina growled. Last thing she needed was for the Swan girl to see her humiliated like that. Weak, knocked out by a simple stunning curse - not even well cast, as she could still move even though every movement hurt.
"A simple thank you would be enough, you know. I just saved your sorry ass here, Mills, those two jerks could have easily done worse than a half-ass stunning curse," Emma Swan said in a voice that sounded more hurt than offended.
"I had it under control. How come you’re even here, last time I checked the Griffindors were too goody-shoed to wander around the castle after curfew."
"I heard them talking about ganging up on you after what happened to McGonagall, they think you are supplying inside information to your mother at the Ministry."
Emma seemed to be blushing. Regina could say she was lying when she said next: “I did not want my house to lose any more points for their hot headed actions.”
"I didn’t need your help," Regina said. They both knew she was lying, too.
