January 27, 2005 – I’d Just Come Home and Write

This entry is part 13 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Cassandra Talbot I think it’s time to pull myself up and salvage this mess. I didn’t sleep an ounce last night, but I accomplished quite a bit in my head. Everything in me was telling me to run from the Lem Institute as if my life were in danger,…

January 28, 2005 – GOT HER

This entry is part 14 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Cassandra Talbot I got Sarah back. It took some doing, but I finally hunted her down at her apartment, which, by the way, won’t be an enormous loss when she moves into the mansion. The problem for her seemed to be the fact that bombs keep dropping. She said…

January 31, 2005 – Terms of the Contract

This entry is part 15 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Katrina Alexis I believe I surprised Cassandra today. I walked into the mansion with all my personal belongings, and the phone practically leaped out of her hands of its own accord. Apparently I was one of the last people she expected to see right then, which doesn’t make a…

February 1, 2005 – “It’s forbidden!” – Beast

This entry is part 16 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Katrina Alexis I must admit, it hasn’t been too bad moving into the mansion. It’s almost like a castle, and I’ve had a fascination with castles for as long as I can remember. I’ve been given a room with a truly beautiful view. That I should say so is…

This entry is part 17 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Katrina Alexis This morning, I was informed that we had a new addition to the Story Project – a professor from the Lem Institute. It sounded safe. After all, Adam, our genteel host, is a professor there. But then again, Stuart runs the place. I should have formed my…

This entry is part 18 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Lance Valentino I have ascended into a new plane of existence. Look! My cozy bachelor pad has been transformed into a mansion, and the secret dream of my heart, the hidden passion of my soul, has been recognized and delivered into the darkness of the world to shine forth…

February 9, 2005 – Infuriating Woman

This entry is part 19 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Lance Valentino The chocolates did not work, nor the flowers. The wine I delivered to Lady Katrina’s door she threatened to crack open on my head. Some women do play hard to get. Such proud women do not submit easily to men, which makes their submission all the more…

February 10, 2005 – The Story of A Beautiful Woman

This entry is part 20 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Lance Valentino O, but my head is full of ideas! Yesterday evening we had an official meeting. Looking back, I realize we sat rather like a first grade class at lunch. All the women were clustered on one end, while X and I sat across from them. X and…

February 14, 2005 – Remember Love?

This entry is part 21 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Dr. Xayyachack Remember love? I’ve forgotten about it more than once. I’m not speaking of romantic love; the desire for romance has become ingrained in many of us Americans, and most of us think about that regularly. I am speaking of a more basic sort of love – the…

February 17, 2005 – Delightfully Unexpected

This entry is part 22 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Dr. Xayyachack At almost every faculty conference I attend at least one fellow professor is sure to tell me about a certain student, or two, who has made his teaching career feel worthwhile. Professors at the Lem Institute are less open in praising their students, but it’s commonly known…

February 22, 2005 – The Anonymous

This entry is part 23 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Sarah Smith So, a poem crosses Ms. Talbot’s desk today with no name on it, and it totally stresses her out. I mean, it’s not like she was waving her arms and standing on her desk, throwing the contents of her trash can around in an angst-ridden episode. But…

February 23, 2005 – The Poem, The Poem

This entry is part 24 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Sarah Smith Oh, my gosh. For crying out freaking loud. Let me just say that the biggest mistake of my life was reading it and giving it back. Who does that? Why would I have done that? Oh, dear God in heaven, have mercy on my pitiful and tragically…
