Chippy’s Auctions is Now Live

I am pleased to announce that Chippy’s Auctions is now live! You can now list your items for sale there, and pay the site fees by either Paypal or Skrill (formerly Moneybookers), and I am hoping to add both Payza and Bitpay as payment options in the near future.

I was going to list a few of the books I am planning on selling there last night, but I was unable to select a category for them (nothing came up when I clicked on the -Select- link), so I have filed a bug report with PHP Pro Software, the makers behind the script to see if they can help me out. Let me know if you run into the same issue, so that I can see if it’s an isolated incident or not.

Oh and the Lord told me yesterday while I was working that I no longer have to fear anything or worry as he brought to my mind 2 Timothy 1:7:

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

He also reminded me that He’s now walking beside me every step of life I take from now on. I know my Lord and Saviour won’t let me fall, and I’m determined every day to live my life the way Christ would want me to.

Now I have a poll for my readers of my fan fiction to answer:

What should I work on next?

If “Work on one of the rewrites” or “Start a new story” wins the poll, I will put up a new poll to decide which story gets rewritten or in which category you want my new story to come from.

Until next time, take care and God bless! ;)

Anger is Like a Fire

Anger is like a fire – a good servant when managed, but a remorseless destroyer of anything in it’s path when it’s the master.

When I was at work today, the Lord brought me that analogy, and told me that I need to work on my control of my anger and my temper. Right now, when I get mad, I lose control and become like the destroying fire, instead of controlling it and using it like a fire in a forge. Christ Himself experienced the emotion as well, but His anger was always controlled and righteous. It was always against something which wasn’t in accordance to the will and laws of God.

He also showed me that I need to rewrite my stories where I lemons in them and not write stories with more than one woman for each man, so I’ve edited the first chapter of “Guardian of the Indigo Plateau”, as well as changing the pairing for “Guardian Prince of Aura” to just Ash and Elesa. I’ve also pulled the following stories until I can rewrite them (unless I marked it as deleted):

  • A Guardian’s Duty (it would cause someone else to sin to allow someone to adopt it)
  • Taking Responsibility
  • Keeping Old Promises
  • Trainer of Destiny: Kanto and Orange Islands
  • Percy Jackson, King of Titans (deleted)
  • A Hero’s Rewards (deleted)

I’ve decided to do something with Lance (who Ash will see as a very good friend) for “A Conference and A Double Wedding” instead of deleting it, as I have no lemons in the story to date. I can use it as a moral lesson why sex is a bad idea before marriage! ;)

Chippy’s Auctions Coming Soon

I’m pleased to say that Chippy’s Auctions is coming soon! I’ve got the script installed, and now it’s just a matter of me getting everything set up, so expect an announcement that it’s open by this weekend! Please remember that when I open this site for my company, ten percent of all money made will be donated to a charity of our choice each month!

When it opens, I’m planning on selling some books for two worthy charities – the local St. Mary’s Hospital and the CNIB. I want to support both because I believe in the local hospital and want to help it improve, and I suffer from keratoconus, which slowly destroyed my distance and reading vision. Thanks to a recent cornea transplant in my left eye and a future one in the right eye, I have been given my sight back. This wouldn’t have been possible without research which the CNIB helps fund. I will donate all proceeds (50% of the cash to each one) after I pay my company’s fees.

Also I have another reason for wanting to donate to charity: Yesterday, I re-accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and I know want to live a life that is worthy of Him and gives Him praise. I have made some major changes to my life so far and they include:

  • cleaning up my computer and hard drive of all unacceptable content
  • deleting Adult Fun Center for good
  • I will no longer write lemons for my stories in the future (and will try to avoid implying sex before marriage as well), and I will avoid reading them.
  • I have put “A Guardian’s Duty” up for adoption, as I can not and will not write a story with incest in it. PM me at FF.Net (WhiteEagle1985) if you want to take over it. If no one offers, I will delete it and look for a way to rewrite it without the incest and sex before marriage.
  • I will try to go to church whenever I am off work, same for Bible study.
  • I will try to read a chapter of my Bible every day.
  • I’m listening to my Christian music once again.
  • Removed myself from any site online that isn’t pleasing to Him.
  • Lots of other changes so that I can live a life my Saviour will be pleased with.

I really want to live a life that pleases my Saviour, and that includes being obedient to those He has put in positions of authority of me – at my employer, in my city, my province, and my country. Clearly though if they ask me to do something with goes against what He has said in His word, I will not obey that order or law.

Got to go read some more, so take care until next time! May God bless your life! ;)

Stories I’m Following You May Want to Read

I’ve read a lot of great fan fiction lately in my three favorite categories (Pokemon, Stargate SG-1, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians), so I thought I would share a few of my favorites here today, and maybe you’ll enjoy them as well. Stories are varied in rating from Fiction K+ to Fiction M.


Story: A New Legend: Quest of the Chosen One

Author: pokedawnheart   Category: Pokemon

Summary: Set during and after ‘For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll’. After Suicune decided to go with Ash and his friends, how will Ash change? How will Ash react when things start to go really weird for him and his friends? And just what is Ash’s destiny that Suicune speaks of? Pokeshipping. From late Johto to Unova.


Story: The Wanderer

Author: xoxOVERLORDxox    Category: Pokemon

Summary: AU. Instead of receiving a Pikachu as his starter, Ash Ketchum is only given an empty pokeball and a sheepish grin from Professor Oak. Anger and spite clouding his soul, he sets out only to find a ray of hope in the form of a small, injured Bagon. It’s funny how a tiny twist of fate can change one’s destiny forever. Dark, prodigy Ash – shipping included.


Story: Perseus Son of Chaos

Author: TC.ya27135   Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Summary: After the Second Gigantomachy, Percy was betrayed, exiled and hunted. After losing one last friend who stood by him, he decided to end it all. Before that, he was visited by the creator himself and offered a deal. To go back to the past and bring down Olympus after defeating Kronos and Gaea once again. Only this time, he will be son of Chaos and champion of the primordial. Perlia!


Story: The Boy in Silver

Author: Anti-Social-Catterpillar   Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Summary: Artemis and the Hunters come across a child that was left in the woods beaten and bruised to die. They take him in and the boy finds a family among the man-hating hunters. Percy being raised in the Hunt, no pairings as of yet. I’m hoping to put my own sort of twist in this! Rated T for language and abuse in early chaps. First Fanfic. CHB will probably start around TTC.


Story: Ra’s Domain

Author: Nadie2   Category: Stargate SG-1

Summary: In this timeline there was never a rebellion in Egypt. Earth has always been under control of the Goa’uld. Women are property, and technology is limited. A resistance fighter, Jack O’Neill, buys a young scientist so she won’t suffer a worse fate. A young Samantha Carter is less than thrilled. Janet, Jacob, and Sha’re have their own stories to tell in this world.


I hope that you enjoy these fan fiction stories that I am following and enjoying. I should go and do some other stuff to get ready for work, so take care! ;)

Almost Time…

It’s under three days now until I can purchase a second VPS to run Chippy’s Auctions and IntimateClick on. On Friday, I go see my eye specialist in Edmonton for a one month post-op checkup, so I’m looking forward to that. After that, I’ll be seeing my specialist every three months for checkups. Of course, in about a year’s time, I go for my second cornea transplant for my right eye.

Tomorrow I have to wash my dishes, and clean my bathroom before I can do any writing. I would do some tonight, but I’m tired now and I don’t write that well when I’m tired. Tomorrow I’m going to try and complete the next chapter of “Soaring to Victory” so I can get it off to my Beta-reader and I can begin working on one of my other stories.

Speaking of my stories, I’m still looking for OCs (original characters) for many of my stories including the following:

  • The World Pokemon Conference
  • Soaring to Victory
  • Percy Jackson, King of Titans (for Hunters of Artemis as well as mortals)
  • Training the Guardian
  • For My Rival’s Sister
  • The Blue Mew (series)
  • Darkest Before Dawn
  • Trainer of Destiny (series)
  • stories I’ll be creating in the future

I’ve also got plans for quite a few more stories, in fact my story projects file in Writer is now five or six pages long, each idea on it’s own line, with ideas taking up a maximum of four lines! Not all my ideas are for fan fiction stories, but they are my ideas and I will eventually turn them into stories one day sooner or later. (I think I’ll finish up a few of my current works-in-progress before I start any new stories!)

I should go rest my eyes now, so take care! ;)
