Spirit Vision

Morgan Straughan Comnick

If God gave you a deadly mission, would you answer His call?  Once you do…you can never go back…

High school freshman Stary Moon never imagined that her strange visions of lights and shadows, the dead body of a young unknown girl, and past connections to the otherworld meant that she was the Spirit Warrior for God.  The Lord has given Stary a mission: to find the murderer of the dead girl, named Maren, and her friend, Umbra, who were both killed by the same person, and extinguish the evil out of their killer.  Stary’s powers are now activated, but  she must be trained to use them…and try not to get caught by the murderer who has the unworldly ability to hide and conjure up dark powers from the fallen angel Lucifer.   On top of this, Stary is just trying to be an average high school girl with a dad for her teacher, protecting her friends, and ignoring the tingling, melodious sensation she gets when near the short-tempered, handsome Umbra and her timid classmate Credence.   If Stary fails, Maren and Umbra will not only lose their entry into heaven, but the world will be exposed to the madness of the murderer for the next forty years until the new Spirit Warrior is born, and Stary will lose her life… High school drama is nothing compared to facing a murderer bent on destroying you!

The Real Problem With Healthcare

If you want to know how Obamacare is going to fix healthcare, it isn't. The truth is that it can't; it only attacks health insurance and not the real problem. This sign, written by a healthcare professional and posted in the bathrooms of a Dialysis Clinic, illustrates the true problem with the US healthcare system.

You will also notice it was composed on a computer. Apparently, the grammer and spell checkers were not functioning.

Questions, Questions, Questions!

Allegedly, Steven Moffat will be tying up all the loose ends from Matt Smith’s era in The Time of the Doctor. Now it occurs to me that as big a feat as that is I will probably still have other questions. So here, in no particular order, are a list of some questions that I’d like to ask Moffat. Most of which I suspect will not be answered on Christmas day.

  1. How did Prisoner Zero escape through the crack when the cracks deleted people from ever having existed?
  2. If the Doctor rebooted the universe, why did everything that happened in the old universe happen in the new?
  3. What happened to the Angel that zapped the Ponds?
  4. Are UNIT and the Zygons still locked in the Black Archive negotiating?
  5. Why create the War Doctor instead of just using McGann?
  6. Were you tempted to name the Gallifreyan General Maxell and have Colin Baker play him?
  7. Why not have surviving Doctors supply new dialog instead of using recognizable bits from past episodes? (After all he did have 1st Doctor dialogue dubbed by a voice artist.)
  8. Why not have McGann film a new bit instead of using TV Movie footage? (He could have done it while filming the minisode.)
  9. Who was the girl in the shop who gave Clara the Doctor’s phone number?
  10. If Jack’s Vortex Manipulator was disabled by the sonic, where did he get the one he left to UNIT that only needed the code entered?
  11. Come to that, What happened to River’s Vortex Manipulator?
  12. Who blew up the TARDIS?

There are so very many more, which is funny because I used to just watch Who and enjoy it. Of course that was before I started writing. Now I have questions that will never be answered, from Davies as well as Moffat, and I guess I shall have to learn to live with that.
