Kagome and sesshoumaru sre close friends and he makes comments that she is yokai like because she has the pack instincts of inu.

Apologies if this is a daft question - is it considered acceptable to participate in the voting if you've entered a story?

It certainly is!

If there are only 15 stories in the Semi Finals, couldn't that just be the Finals?

That's... not a bad idea.

You can absolutely vote for stories if you're a contestant. You can even vote on your own story! You cannot get others to vote on your story by claiming it as your own publicly or by telling others in private which story is yours :)

Can't wait to see all the lovely works!

PodCastle 696: Tend to Me

Author: Kristina Ten
Narrator: Nicola Seaton-Clark
Host: Summer Fletcher
Audio Producer: Peter Behravesh

Lightspeed

Show Notes
Rated PG-13



Nora is a serial becomer. She has become many things in her life, though rarely on purpose. The first time, it just sort of happened. The second time, it was a coincidence. Now, it is a habit she cannot seem to break.

In the past, she has become a rock climber and a scuba diver, a beekeeper and a gardener and a mechanic specializing in European cars. For two months last summer, she was a stand-up comedian. Her senior year of college, she amassed New England’s largest collection of antique coins.

Nora has no interest in any of these things. She has, in fact, an acute fear of heights and depths and stages. Exhaust fumes make her sick, and she is allergic to bees.

But Nora cannot help herself: she is prone to absorbing the interests of whoever she is dating. She is caught in a pattern. She cannot get out.

The kites frozen across the sky dapple the lawn like stained glass. Human statues dot the park, caught mid-motion: picnicking, dog-walking, sun-bathing. They might have been unnerving, once. Now, the utter stillness and silence soothes me like nothing else. In Frozen Time, scents are amplified tenfold. Grass, flowers, sugar. I drop a few coins into a vendor’s tip jar, then fill a clear bag with candy worms, chewing as I stroll down the small hill.

When a shape weaves between the stationary people, I think it’s only an optical illusion. A vase, two faces, now a vase again.
