14: University – ‘Casual Affair’

Jack Ryder (Year Four), Rhys Klein (Year Three), Emma Steel (Year Three), Bettina Ackerman (Year Three)

For their final two years of university, they all decided to go in on a house rental. It turned out to be a brilliant idea. The dorms were crowded and annoying, but with the privacy of their own home, things were much easier. Emma kind of wished that Rhys and Bettina would save the PDA for their bedroom, though.

14: McMaster – ‘Down’

Philip McMaster (Adult), Bianca McMaster (Young Adult), Dylan McMaster (Child), Molly McMaster (Toddler)

Philip continues working in his garden. It’s more of a hobby than anything else; he makes all of his money through Drifter and the competitions that they enter. Still, the garden is a labor of love. It provides fresh produce for Bianca’s cooking and it’s a nice, healthy way to pass the time. Philip was never really the type to do a regular ‘9 to 5′ gig.

Round 14 ROS

ROS for round 14 is here!

Yeah, I’m not exactly keen on the Orbital strike one. Why the hell does that keep showing up? Of course, I will not be writing any meteor hits into the story (probably.) I’m beginning to wonder if my husband weighted it beyond what I advised for lulz. :P

13: McMaster 2 – ‘Time to Dance’

Catherine McMaster (Young Adult), Juliet McMaster (Young Adult)

Catherine McMaster wakes up early and if she happens to have the morning off, she spends it jogging around the small town in the Valley. It’s a calming jog, filled with the familiar sights of her childhood. She may have grown up on the dirt roads of the country, but the Valley is still her home. She couldn’t imagine living in the city just across the river.

13: Ashton/McMaster – ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’

Lily Ashton (Young Adult), Mark McMaster (Young Adult)

Mark McMaster was suffering from every would-be author went through–writer’s block. It was an affliction that consumed him, making every single word he couldn’t type like a personal insult. He just didn’t understand it. It was almost as if he’d lost the spark that had urged him to put his feelings into words.

Whatever the cause, he needed to figure it out and quick. He’d finally gotten some interest in his work and he was on a firm deadline now to produce something amazing.

13: Martel – ‘Don’t You Worry Child’

Luis Martel (Young Adult), Sacha Martel(Young Adult), Aidan Martel (Child), Sandra Martel (Toddler)

Luis had been pretty clear about not wanting anymore kids, but when Sacha popped up unexpectedly pregnant, he wasn’t angry. It was a fluke; these things happen. Sacha hadn’t done it on purpose. Besides, their little family was good. Adding to it wasn’t the worst that could happen.

Of course, Luis and Sacha were in firm agreement that three was more than enough. There would be no more babies after this.
