Ashes and Portents
The anthro jackal, dressed in a long sleeve black shirt with a green vest and khaki pants, was sniffing his fresh coffee when his cell phone started playing Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. He rather hated that song, but used it as a ringtone for when his more annoying ‘friends’ called him. He pulled out his cell while looking around the restaurant.
No one around, he thought. Good.
He looked at the incoming number and sighed, realizing who it was.
“Hello Alex.”
“Hello Jack!” an excited voice replied.
The jackal responded with a cold voice. “Alex. Don’t call me Jack. You can call me Aces or my real name, Ash. Hell, you can call me TJ. Just don’t. Call. Me. Jack.”
“Eh, you’ll get used to it,” Alex disparaged.
Ash shook his head, imagining himself choking that coyote to death.
“Anyways, I’m just calling to let you know I’ve finished it,” Alex continued.
“Oh,” Ash

Odd Friends
I sat in the paw shaped chair, looking at the three lovers of paws
James sat at my front as the smallest member
At the size of a paw, ever seeking more
Many paws he found and many paws he hugged
Even if he was stepped on, he would only hug it
Sickness would not stop him from spreading his joy
Aussie sat at my left as the newest member
Until recently, he doesn't get what is so good about paws
Sexy? he wondered months ago while staring at paws
Since, to him, they were just stilts to stand on
Indeed, he now likes paws, though not to stepping on others
Ever he'll blame James for helping him like paws
Marquis sat at my right as the brightest member
Always wears bright orange and yellow fur
Relaxing with his bright red and black pants
Quarter part of his body had paw prints
Upon the right cheek is one such paw print
Indeed his own paws were the size of watermelons
So huge and yet as soft as plushies

You Know
You know I'm the backstabber one
So why do you like me -
Me who have betrayed your trust?
You know I'm the hateful one
So why do you love me -
Me who have broke your heart?
You know I'm the abusive one
So why do you hug me -
Me who have slapped your face?
You know I'm the meaningless one
So why do you help me -
Me who have destroyed your win?
You know I'm the cold one
So why do you befriend me -
Me who have hurt your soul?

Luke stared at the laptop amidst the noise of the people around him chatting about nothing useful. Just the same old dribble these people constantly pour out with no rhyme or reason. He sighed, wondering how these humans got here while carrying pointless crap the size of Texas in their heads. He then shook his head and continued reading that news displayed on the screen.
“Stupid people,” Luke muttered as he eats a slice of pizza. “How the Hell did a nuclear meltdown happen that far north in Canada? Especially since it can’t power anything there.”
The news had been out for a week now and yet everyone was still talking about it. A secret nuclear reactor high north in Canada, constructed to discover how to minimize nuclear waste, has had a meltdown. The worst one since Chernobyl. Canada reacted quickly to clean it up with the assistance of the US, who had been working discreetly with it's Northern Neighbor to build it. Both publicly announced the meltd

In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae, May 1915
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
I know I'm an hour late, but still. Today is Remembrance Day. Today we remember the soldiers who have died in the wars and honer the brave fighters for what they've done for all our lands. At 11am, on November 11th, the guns were put down and World War I ended. There we remember all the troops who have died and the families who had lost their men. We stand in silence to remember them, as our heroes.
What I'm working on

Beyond Golden Gates
On a hill in brightest days does stand,
A Manor, a House, a Home,
With its richness and glory a testament to success,
Of colors most inviting, finest marble, smoothest oak,
All passerby do gawk at the luck owner
With the richest hearth, boldest paint, cleanest windows
And of course its air of perfume,
And they smiled,
But in the darkness when all eyes are closed,
A thousand thoughts are left to wander,
To wonder, to search, to seek,
And bumble through the twisting,
The climbing, the ruined, the crumbling,
Passages of that mansion,
And there in the pure and utter void,
The real solitude of self-discovery does,
A door pop to show, to unfurl, to unmask,
And allow us to brush by that which we,
Cannot hope, dare not decipher, fear to find,
When realization reveals the hollowness,
The emptiness within the confines,
Of the depths of the castle, they wince,
They pain, they bruise, they bleed at knowing,
It is empty, lacking, worthless,
But sunup, sundown they trudge,
Displaying a burnished and

Chapter 1: . . . And a Criminal
"That was At War With the World, an oldie by Foreigner from their self-titled debut album, Foreigner. And, it is that time of the hour again, and we'll head on over to Alicia at the 98.5 Weather Channel for the afternoon outlook."
The tinny voices from the vintage Emerson squatting in the corner of the garage ricochet off of the barren, unfinished concrete walls. The echo waves by the stacks of mildewed cardboard boxes on the back floor, tool-covered corkboard hung precariously off both sides of single-car space before bouncing off the rear wall. After sailing over the Caprice at the focal point of the room, the sound dissipates out into the commotion and noise that is Baltimore.
I can hardly hear the radio over the hectic chaotic racket of the city outside. Every time a new car goes by, I get to here the wonderfully irritating pump of heavy basses, or the screech of an irate driver reproach some neighborhood kid who just rushed into the street. It's aki

Humanity Gone
Waking up has always been a chore for me. Especially since I have been dreaming a lot. I can remember the times when I enjoyed thinking about my dreams, but the memories are too painful. I already knew what this one meant; it meant I would have to face another rotten day. There was no point in lying in bed when I had work to do, so I stood up, got a towel, and made my way to the bathroom. Despite what had happened eleven years ago, every step I took felt so, alien, and the tiles on the bathroom floor felt even weirder. I stepped in to the shower and closed the door. I let out a sudden gasp of surprise when the cold water hit me. But I shouldn't have been so surprised; after all, the hot water system had just recently been put in so there will still be bugs in the system. The hot water came on a few minutes later, but by that time my fur was already wet and plastered to my body.
Wait, what do you mean, "What fur?" Have you been living in a hole for the past eleven years? Well, it sounds

Too Ordinary
I stood there for the better part of five minutes, half admiring him, half scoping him out. I couldn't get it through my head why, why have I been cursed with my fathers creeping abilities. For whatever reason he was good at sneaking around the house, but that's not important right now. What is important is that I cannot seem to understand the Jason Strain. No, its not a real disease, but its been going around the school like the flu. Girls go gaga for this junior, and I have no idea why. I don't think it's his wavy brown hair, or his sea blue eyes. It isn't his clothes, I'm sure of that. He looks like he walked out of a No-Name outlet, always just jeans and a T-shirt.
Wait now, lets get one thing straight, I am not a stalker. I might know where he lives, where he hangs out, and what his favorite food is, but I'm not a stalker. It's the non-stop chatter of other girls he has dated in my class that I get this info from. He's not a bad kid though, not that I care. The girls he dates are

Animal I Have Become
At first I didn't remember how it happened. I lay there, not a care for the rest of the world around me. Were my friends still there? Looking at my malformed body? Were they like me? So many unanswered questions I had, no one to answer them but me. I couldn't move, I was paralyzed, blind. Was I dead? Did the enormous amount of pain I had endured caused my death, or was I unconscious?
Through the darkness I saw a large white light. This is the end, I thought. A person with near death experiences often talked about seeing a white light, and beyond that was supposed to be the afterlife, or heaven, or whatever that person believes was waiting for them. Maybe it was consciousness, and that white light was opening my eyes. It turned out that neither of my predictions was right, and in fact it was my memory of what had happened tonight.
My mom had just dropped me at my friend's house; I had my party favors and food in one hand. I knocked on the door with my free hand; my friend Charlie was th

A Real Friend
        Max stared up at the starlit sky with his green eyes. His parents would be extremely mad if he was caught outside this late, but it was too dark for anyone to see him out on the roof. Max had just moved and didn't have any friends to hang out with or goof off with. In fact, of all the places he lived, he had never had any friends, and when he managed to get friends, they either left him in the dust or he moved away. This time was different however, he would try again to get friends and keep them.
        He looked down at the dark street below as two teenage boys about his age were walking past his house. They were laughing and talking, with a few bottles of cola. In one kids arm was a whole twelve-pack of Root Beer, and the other had two bags of potato chips.

An Applauding Transformation
"Next please!" the lady at the desk said
I was third in a big line-up of people who wanted to be the schools new mascot.

I really didn't want to be like those peppy girls in cheerleading, flipping up their skirts and talking about how, "Guy's like the girls on top best." I think that that is one of those things people do to new girls at the school.

Sibling Transformations
This was the day, my life changed forever.
It all started on Sunday night, when I was walking home from a late-night baseball game with my friends. It was dark, and warm. My brown hair was kept out of my face by the light breeze. I was panting and sweating from the hard play and from winning, it was very exciting because I usually wasn't very good at baseball.
I was about halfway home when a strong gust of wind came down on me. It felt like someone with a giant fan had waved it directly above me. Like when a seagull flies right above your head, you feel that small gust of air as it flaps its wings. Well, take that and multiply it by one hundred and that's what I felt. I regained my breath and looked up quickly to see two black shapes above me disappear. They looked like bats.
That's strange, I thought, they looked like bats, but bats don't knock the wind out of you when they fly above you. And the last time I checked, bats didn't have tail's. I got to my feet and started jogging home.

Life as an Amazon Employee

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 16, 2017, 1:44 PM
"Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree."

-Terry Pratchett

Melancholia

I remember the day, July 23, 2013, where I got a reply from Amazon who offered me a job interview as a fulfillment associate after I sent them and other companies resumes. It was interesting times, back at 2013, where my great-uncle Dan was living with us . . . again. I was an active member of Crimson Flag also. Not to mention, dealing with college (still do). After the phone interview a few days later, I was offered to go to a direct hire on August 16, 2013.

Of course, the direct hire was in neighboring city, Phoenix, and I still haven’t got my driver license yet, and because it takes place on a weekday, my dad can’t drive me there. So, it was a heck of a trouble to get it in time, which I succeed on the day of the interview (thanks, grandma, rest in peace). The written exam I took twice (because the permit has expired, oops), and the driving and parking test was alright, though I was disappointed that the field test was literally a drive around the block.

So, I got home with my license in hand, got myself clean up in a good suit, and drove all the way to the interview, with the high school diploma, which was required. Boy, was the interview wasn’t what I expected. It was fairly informal, with all the people there getting a job (except me) were wearing casually, the diploma was taken a picture of (and months later since they somehow lost it), and it just have a group of us candidates being talked to along with a drug test. I was lightly teased about the suit thing. I was also given where I’ll be working if I pass the drug test, which was at PHX7 at night shift from Sunday to Thursday, 6:30 PM to 3:00 AM. Then I drove home and, if you were also disappointed at how easy my field test with the car went, I drove in a middle of a rush hour, which was troublesome.

After a month and a half of waiting, I was told to go to the new hire orientation on October 3, 2013 with the actual training and work the following day. The new hire orientation took a lot longer than I expected, so much so that that day counts for a paycheck. And, since dad works on days, it was a decent setup, with him using the car to go to work and back at days and me at nights. So, things were smooth there (aside from Thursday traffic, burr). I was admittedly a slow learner, but I did learn and became what I thought was a reliable worker.

My four years with Amazon, well, I admit that I don’t wish to sound completely negative, especially since it’s my first job and I have no personal reference pool to compare with. Yet it hasn’t been a positive time. My dad contributes it to my sense of fulfillment, which he says we get from work. I used to have a sense of fulfillment with work, but I've lost it due to how work has treated me.

Before I explain, I should elaborate with what type of building PHX7 is. PHX7 is an Amazon warehouse (fulfillment center) where they get in the items, stock them in the shelves or racks, pick them off of the shelves and racks, pack them in packages (or slap them with a SPOO sticker if it can go on its own), and ship them out. Given on what I see, it’s not really one where people generally gets the Amazon Prime packages from, especially since I never see any of the packages used for people with Prime being used here. I work at Outbound, the ones who take the items off of the shelves or racks, have them packed out, and shipped them.

I started out as a floor picker, which I admit hasn’t been that great for my feet. A few months later, I was trained for PIT (powered industrial trucks) as an Order Picker (OP). A few months later, I was trained for pack, where I pack out the items. The building has various pick paths and packing areas, Singles, Multis, Handtape, and BOD. Singles are just that, single items. Multis are group of items that needed to be sorted out in a rebin by a rebiner before they need to be packed out so we know which items goes with which. Handtape are for the long and/or wide and small items that doesn’t work with the Singles/Multis pack setup. BOD (or, as I like to call them, boxes of death) are the large, awkward items that even the Handtape pack setup won’t work with and needed custom boxes to go with.

Anyways, one of the major sense of lack of job fulfillment is the lack of care or empathy the higher ups (particularly the PAs and PGs) have for us associates. My biggest source of that is, back in the middle of 2014, I had surgery to have my left big toenail removed for an ingrown toenail and, when I got to work the following night, walking stick in hand, asked to have a more easier job today, specially slapping shipping labels at the Handtape packing station. They listened . . . for half an hour before they send me to a more physical work at Singles Pack and they were even considering sending me to OP. Needless to say, I didn’t stay after first break and, despite them knowing I can’t do the best I can and I’m barely trained in pack at the time, they still send me to pack where I got my first and second written warning for not reaching rate. It was very stressful at those times.

Another area where I don’t have a job fulfillment sense is, whenever I get very good at one area, they slowly dropped me from working there. For example, I was once one of the very best floor pickers in the building. The last major time I worked on the floor, I was at 100 items picked per hour when the rate of it is 55 and picked out around 900 items that night. Despite that, they don’t send me to that area at much again. Another example is packing Hazmat/small items (Handtape was rearranged so Hazmats and later small items aren’t mixed up with the long and/or wide items) where, at my peak, I can pack out 100 items an hour when the rate is 70. Like, why can’t I be where I am good?

Next, they did some rearrangement to the buildings, with the floor picks being 90% removed for very narrow aisles (VNA) in the middle of the building during 2015, which took a hit at my motivations. Then they did some massive rearrangements for the pack areas, from ending Handtape by moving them to Singles, to changing how the pack stations look and work. When I first started at pack Singles, they were basically three-man teams in a single pack station (as in, three people per single conveyer belt), two doing the packings and one stuffing them with ranpaks and taping them with a machine. Now, it has expanded to stations up eight people who are doing the packing and two people doing the stuffing them with ranpaks and taping per conveyer belt, though those are rarely filled with ten people. More often than not, it’s four or six people doing the packing and one person doing the ranpaking and taping. For something that’s supposed to make it easier and faster to get the packages out to the customers, it felt like they slowed it down massively.

Finally, there’s a great lack of safety in the building, especially with people working with PITs. To explain, in this building, there’s supposed to be a balance for these three things; rate, safety, and quality. One should have a steady and good rate, should always be safe, and be sure the items are in good quality. Yet, associates are only penalized here if their rate aren’t good. We only get lectured if we made a safety violation or if the item is actually damaged or got damaged. As a result, I regularly see associates break at least one safety violation throughout the day. Hell, I saw one guy who turned his OP in the drop zone for pick to be taken for pack the wrong side and spun it around so that the cage connected to his OP slammed into the other cages. And this guy, given on what type of vest he was wearing, works for Safety. If even they will break safety violations, why shouldn’t the regular associates break them?

There’s a whole lot more, but I think you get the point by now. So, what can I do? I hoped going to day shift in 2015 (I was given the car by dad since grandma is in no shape to drive thanks to her Alzheimer’s disease and got her car), but it hasn’t worked out. Then I lowered myself to part-time in hoped that they’ll get the message that I’m getting unhappy with how I’ve been treated, but it may have gotten worse. Before you ask, I doubt I can get myself promoted here. So, what can I do now?

Well, perhaps find a new job, one that’s a lot less stressful and more fulfilling to work in. Perhaps start my career in writing. In the end, I don’t wish to work there anymore.

Anyways, take it easy.

Well, she's actually a vixen, but whatever. XP

Anyways, here's an IRL picture of me holding a beautiful vixen. Before you ask, she is very soft.

Life as an Amazon Employee

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 16, 2017, 1:44 PM
"Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree."

-Terry Pratchett

Melancholia

I remember the day, July 23, 2013, where I got a reply from Amazon who offered me a job interview as a fulfillment associate after I sent them and other companies resumes. It was interesting times, back at 2013, where my great-uncle Dan was living with us . . . again. I was an active member of Crimson Flag also. Not to mention, dealing with college (still do). After the phone interview a few days later, I was offered to go to a direct hire on August 16, 2013.

Of course, the direct hire was in neighboring city, Phoenix, and I still haven’t got my driver license yet, and because it takes place on a weekday, my dad can’t drive me there. So, it was a heck of a trouble to get it in time, which I succeed on the day of the interview (thanks, grandma, rest in peace). The written exam I took twice (because the permit has expired, oops), and the driving and parking test was alright, though I was disappointed that the field test was literally a drive around the block.

So, I got home with my license in hand, got myself clean up in a good suit, and drove all the way to the interview, with the high school diploma, which was required. Boy, was the interview wasn’t what I expected. It was fairly informal, with all the people there getting a job (except me) were wearing casually, the diploma was taken a picture of (and months later since they somehow lost it), and it just have a group of us candidates being talked to along with a drug test. I was lightly teased about the suit thing. I was also given where I’ll be working if I pass the drug test, which was at PHX7 at night shift from Sunday to Thursday, 6:30 PM to 3:00 AM. Then I drove home and, if you were also disappointed at how easy my field test with the car went, I drove in a middle of a rush hour, which was troublesome.

After a month and a half of waiting, I was told to go to the new hire orientation on October 3, 2013 with the actual training and work the following day. The new hire orientation took a lot longer than I expected, so much so that that day counts for a paycheck. And, since dad works on days, it was a decent setup, with him using the car to go to work and back at days and me at nights. So, things were smooth there (aside from Thursday traffic, burr). I was admittedly a slow learner, but I did learn and became what I thought was a reliable worker.

My four years with Amazon, well, I admit that I don’t wish to sound completely negative, especially since it’s my first job and I have no personal reference pool to compare with. Yet it hasn’t been a positive time. My dad contributes it to my sense of fulfillment, which he says we get from work. I used to have a sense of fulfillment with work, but I've lost it due to how work has treated me.

Before I explain, I should elaborate with what type of building PHX7 is. PHX7 is an Amazon warehouse (fulfillment center) where they get in the items, stock them in the shelves or racks, pick them off of the shelves and racks, pack them in packages (or slap them with a SPOO sticker if it can go on its own), and ship them out. Given on what I see, it’s not really one where people generally gets the Amazon Prime packages from, especially since I never see any of the packages used for people with Prime being used here. I work at Outbound, the ones who take the items off of the shelves or racks, have them packed out, and shipped them.

I started out as a floor picker, which I admit hasn’t been that great for my feet. A few months later, I was trained for PIT (powered industrial trucks) as an Order Picker (OP). A few months later, I was trained for pack, where I pack out the items. The building has various pick paths and packing areas, Singles, Multis, Handtape, and BOD. Singles are just that, single items. Multis are group of items that needed to be sorted out in a rebin by a rebiner before they need to be packed out so we know which items goes with which. Handtape are for the long and/or wide and small items that doesn’t work with the Singles/Multis pack setup. BOD (or, as I like to call them, boxes of death) are the large, awkward items that even the Handtape pack setup won’t work with and needed custom boxes to go with.

Anyways, one of the major sense of lack of job fulfillment is the lack of care or empathy the higher ups (particularly the PAs and PGs) have for us associates. My biggest source of that is, back in the middle of 2014, I had surgery to have my left big toenail removed for an ingrown toenail and, when I got to work the following night, walking stick in hand, asked to have a more easier job today, specially slapping shipping labels at the Handtape packing station. They listened . . . for half an hour before they send me to a more physical work at Singles Pack and they were even considering sending me to OP. Needless to say, I didn’t stay after first break and, despite them knowing I can’t do the best I can and I’m barely trained in pack at the time, they still send me to pack where I got my first and second written warning for not reaching rate. It was very stressful at those times.

Another area where I don’t have a job fulfillment sense is, whenever I get very good at one area, they slowly dropped me from working there. For example, I was once one of the very best floor pickers in the building. The last major time I worked on the floor, I was at 100 items picked per hour when the rate of it is 55 and picked out around 900 items that night. Despite that, they don’t send me to that area at much again. Another example is packing Hazmat/small items (Handtape was rearranged so Hazmats and later small items aren’t mixed up with the long and/or wide items) where, at my peak, I can pack out 100 items an hour when the rate is 70. Like, why can’t I be where I am good?

Next, they did some rearrangement to the buildings, with the floor picks being 90% removed for very narrow aisles (VNA) in the middle of the building during 2015, which took a hit at my motivations. Then they did some massive rearrangements for the pack areas, from ending Handtape by moving them to Singles, to changing how the pack stations look and work. When I first started at pack Singles, they were basically three-man teams in a single pack station (as in, three people per single conveyer belt), two doing the packings and one stuffing them with ranpaks and taping them with a machine. Now, it has expanded to stations up eight people who are doing the packing and two people doing the stuffing them with ranpaks and taping per conveyer belt, though those are rarely filled with ten people. More often than not, it’s four or six people doing the packing and one person doing the ranpaking and taping. For something that’s supposed to make it easier and faster to get the packages out to the customers, it felt like they slowed it down massively.

Finally, there’s a great lack of safety in the building, especially with people working with PITs. To explain, in this building, there’s supposed to be a balance for these three things; rate, safety, and quality. One should have a steady and good rate, should always be safe, and be sure the items are in good quality. Yet, associates are only penalized here if their rate aren’t good. We only get lectured if we made a safety violation or if the item is actually damaged or got damaged. As a result, I regularly see associates break at least one safety violation throughout the day. Hell, I saw one guy who turned his OP in the drop zone for pick to be taken for pack the wrong side and spun it around so that the cage connected to his OP slammed into the other cages. And this guy, given on what type of vest he was wearing, works for Safety. If even they will break safety violations, why shouldn’t the regular associates break them?

There’s a whole lot more, but I think you get the point by now. So, what can I do? I hoped going to day shift in 2015 (I was given the car by dad since grandma is in no shape to drive thanks to her Alzheimer’s disease and got her car), but it hasn’t worked out. Then I lowered myself to part-time in hoped that they’ll get the message that I’m getting unhappy with how I’ve been treated, but it may have gotten worse. Before you ask, I doubt I can get myself promoted here. So, what can I do now?

Well, perhaps find a new job, one that’s a lot less stressful and more fulfilling to work in. Perhaps start my career in writing. In the end, I don’t wish to work there anymore.

Anyways, take it easy.

Wow, it's been a long time since we talked. The reason I never read your new stories is becasue I've found others who get my interest better. But I like your older stories more because they're classics. Their the perfect stories within a perfect setting with a perfect character TF.
