So a reader just left a comment on one of my stories. It was a positive one, yes, but in the middle of their feedback they started using the comment as a way of promoting their own fics – and they were even aware of it, saying “haha shameless plug XD”. I’m really not a fan of that. That being said, what they said at the start, that actually related to my story, was nice.
I’m torn about deleting the comment or not. Thoughts?
I have a very random and kinda strange question that Might be a writing prompt if you want?? What's the most serious case Jackie's had to take care of? I'm talkin like Really Serious stuff, hostage situations, taking care of a r*pe victim, stopping abuse, etc. Like some Heavy stuff that might've made him uncomfy potentially.
His most serious cases have been the ones he’s killed for. When he was young and inexperienced, he accidentally killed a man who was holding his wife hostage; he punched him too hard and snapped his neck. Jackie agonized over it for weeks. Another one was a gunman who attacked a high-end gala; he was beyond all reason or negotiation and Jackie had to put him down, but at least by then Marvin was in the house to reassure him that he did the right thing.
29 DAY WHUMP CHALLENGE
Day 22: Punishment
The Host’s cracked, bloodstained lips stayed in a thin line, teeth clenched tight, muscles in his temples flexing. Breaths whistling harshly through his broken nose, he lifted his chin in silent defiance. He could already See the ringmaster’s face contort in rage.
They wanted him to be their soothsayer, to put him in front of an audience and rake in money and fame for his gift. He wouldn’t be their circus act. Stifling his narrations was like trying to hold back a waterfall but if he had the power to create them, he had the power to silence them.
The whip cracked with deadly accuracy and he lurched, choking back a scream at the flash of pain. The next striped across his shoulders—the one after that the base of his spine.
“You will speak or you will suffer!”
Rocking forward on his knees, the Host bit his tongue until all he could taste was blood.
