Could you create the freetext? I'm not high enough level yet to make it myself.
I like the challenge.

That looks cooler than what I've been doing. The company I work for has opened a new outlet and I was part of the crew that went into the new location and turned it from a dingy accountant's cubicle farm into a retail store. Tore out carpet, painted walls, laid new flooring, built fixtures, and next week we're going back to the mill to rip out old bathrooms and build new ones. As much non-production work as we are doing now, I have a feeling it's going to be busy next year making a crap ton of socks

We did a few mass launches of KC-10 extenders (which is what I work at McGuire) to support the C-17s that dropped all the paratroopers.

Busy couple weeks prepping for it.

Also caught something that I need a 10 day series of penicillin for. Figure that one out. :) Fall is most sickest of seasons....every d**n year.

You know, there's a whole RPG out there based on maids, but they don't even have a freetext here. This week, let's remedy that. The freetext is maid.

Thing's have gotten quiet around here, too quiet.

It's time for a quest from the Master.

The deal is simple, you've got 500 words to work with, maximum. The submission has to be a location. Forest, mountain, desert, space station, etc, it doesn't matter.

But there's a catch.

Winter is Coming

Your 500 Word Location submissions must all have Winter as a major element/theme.

How does one address a robot?  Does one even talk to one? Maybe there was a button to press or something...

Instead of debating it further, Derek simply dismounted from the lizard-thing and walked towards the robot.  He wasn't terribly worried it was dangerous - it didn't look it. And, in most things, that was how Derek judged things.

"Make sure you don't meet that lizard-guys eyes. I think he knows how to memorize or something."

Too bad he didn't have an oil can, that sure would have brought some laughs back home.

The EEP gave a mewling beep and click as if saying goodbye, as they rode off into what so far looked like Nevada.

By the time the lizard-man woke up, Luna and Derek had traversed some miles, albeit slowly, across the alien landscape. The boy's prints disappeared after some time in the shifting sands. That mystery would remain unsolved for the time being.

A sudden malfunction in the comm feed prevented Dimmer and others from being heard by the intrepid duo, yet Skyrider and the Lemurian could still be heard back on Earth. The camera still worked. The show must go on.

They reached the shores of a seeming sea, the ochre-yellow "water" percolating as if set on simmer.

The "beach" was a colorful palette of pale greens and stretched for miles in each direction. Haze-shrouded outlines of mountainous islands could be seen on the far horizon of the sea. The sky was slathered in demonic purples.

It was a long day and bound to become longer. A Cytherean day was longer than its year.

The croc-man started hissing and the calibrated translator translated; "What sort of creature are you?" it asked Luna, yet looked at Derek as if it saw his kind plenty of times before.

One other item of note...

Standing vigil along the jade beach like a metallic beacon, was what looked like a rejected weapon idea from WWI (or earlier?). It was obvious that what stood a few dozen feet away from them was a robot, but it didn't look any kind of robot Derek recognized from 1950's Hollywood.

The thing stood motionless and involuntarily reminded Skyrider of the Tin Man from that Wizard of Oz movie from '39.

"With all this sand, we should be able to track the little bugger - let's keep looking for water, though."

Rubbing her chin, she pondered the best course, but laziness won out. A pirate needs a ride, and when ever did a Lemurian trudge through other sand than a beach?
With how unimpressed the beast had been with their little scuffle on its back, and how it languidly prodded at the sands spoke well of its temper.
She approached non-threateningly, as if she belonged, and got hold of its reins.
"Let's load up our little language sample, we can chat in the evening" she nudged towards the rolled-up slaver. "There should be enough room on the back of the saddle... yes, nice and tight." She fastened a few more straps, then steered the beast along the boy's tracks.

The "Kid" was nowhere to be seen. Typical, thought Derek. Just like the kid he had rescued in "Blood Dawn II". Not even a "thanks".

The EEP (Emergency Ejection Pod) sat nearby in the crunchy sand, humming softly. Everywhere Derek looked he saw only reddish sands and dunes, except in one direction where he could make out what looked like a hazy body of liquid (water?) of some kind. Distances were difficult to gauge here, but it couldn't be more than a few miles away.

Luna examined some of the lizard-thing's possessions. Among them, was what appeared to be a forty foot long(!) metallic, reticulated whip, with a hollow handle and a wicked spike or talon at the other end of it. A bizarre weapon, if indeed it was one.

The beast of burden continued rutting in the sands oblivious to Luna and Skyrider.
