    I only report... I don't know what Barb signed. I find this abhorrent that Barb would have to suffer such indignities for things she did years ago was accused of years ago! I find it comforting she has somewhere to go if things don't work out!!!!

    Image Maker is Russian. How can collusion be ruled out?:confused: In fact this entire site could be a Russian attempt to corrupt people and all the mods could be FSB agents. It's possible I'm the only real person here. After all, liking crucifixion seems very weird and I'm the only one here who doesn't like it (unless all of you are only pretending to like it, which is very possible. Likely in fact.).

    It makes no sense why you are still here. We would never crucify any one. I like the images yet not the reality. You judge us wrong...

    Tree, you honestly expect things to make sense? Seriously? And you think I believe you actually crucify people or want to? Give me some credit (I take Visa, Master Card, but not Amex).

    I enjoy writing stories. Mine aren't really about crucifixion, even the few that contain it as a plot device. The Bronx Crux was a murder mystery/crime story; I thought having the murders done by crucifixion would give it a novel twist that would appeal to people here and also allow an exciting rescue, but the focus was on the detectives solving the case. Only one story I wrote was about crucifixion per se (the one about Ann Lee) and I wrote that not because I like crucifixion as a fantasy but because she was a real historical figure who lived just down the road from me. Since she truly believed she was Jesus re-incarnated as a woman, it seemed a propos to have her crucified. But, quite honestly, the crucifixion didn't excite me (and Barb wrote the actual nailing).

    But this is off topic on your thread and I don't mean to detract from your story. You're welcome to re-join Story Discussion and I'd be happy to discuss there or elsewhere why I'm here.

    I'M NOT SURE I SHOULD PUT UP WITH THIS "I'M THE ONLY REAL PERSON HERE" NONSENSE. AS THE PERSONIFICATION OF THE ULTIMATE REALITY, I SIMPLY TAKE EXCEPTION. :cool::D

    IMG_0843.JPG "I roll on to my belly and say to him ..."

    It's "tummy" not "belly"!!!!!!! :mad:

    "Belly" is so crude; makes me sound like a hog or something! :confused:

    That quibble aside, nicely written episode. As usual, no mstter what I choose I am screwed. Classic Tree plotting. :rolleyes:

    I do want to say one again, though:

    I AM INNOCENT AND TOO YOUNG TO DIE !!!!! :(

    So to clarify Barbara had to choose how she is crucified without knowing if any mercy would be bestowed on her if she confesses. If she chose to be to be crucified with her arms in wide shallow ‘V’ and her legs nearly straight it would expedite her death if she is so condemned.
    barb crux 18.jpg

    However if she is sentenced to a timed crux a narrower steeper ‘V’ with knees more bent would increase chances of her surviving.

    crux 278 d.jpg

    This all predicated on Barb either confessing or being convicted. The other unknowns are how much mercy would the court afford her for a confession since it is getting a cut of the pay-per-view money and if she goes trial she doesn’t know what kind of jury she would get.

    Up until I rolled into court I wasn’t sure about how I should plea. Tree has told me told me I could at the most three days crucified but to have any chance of being off the cross by then I would have to plead guilty to something I didn’t do. Yet reading prosecution’s papers it is obvious they aren’t even going to try to prove I didn’t actually crash the site but as the rebel leader I ordered it to be done.

    As I said I was rolled into court bound to a device that hardly paints me in a good light (in terms of guilt or innocence- I, of course, look beautiful).

    barb 085.gif

    I am asked by the fair and just Judge Admi how do I plea- guilty or innocent, I say “Your honor (he loves to be called that) I wish to tender an Alford Plea!”

    He seems to be confused and Googles the term finding it means when offering an Alford plea, a defendant asserts her innocence but admits that sufficient evidence exists to convict her of the offense. In a fair trial they have a good case. Here in this kangeroo you would think they caught me with the still smoking gun!

    assas 002 A.jpg

    He looks up at me and says “Very creative, Ms. Moore.”

    avatar king Admi.jpg

    “Thank you” I reply rather pleased with myself.

    “I sentence you to one day crucified plus one roll of the die. Whatever is rolled you will be crucified for 12 more hours times the number that comes up” he explains. This is fraught with peril as even a one means 36 hours and four days if a six is rolled! Prosecutor Joan Tree prepares to roll the die when a voice booms from the back of the courtroom “NOT SO FAST, PILGRIM!”

    The barrel-chested man swaggers to front of the court while a wide-eyed Joan Tree says “I thought you were dead!”

    “Not hardly” he growls. The judge bangs his gavel and demands to know who the intruder is and I wonder as well.

    tree old.jpg

    “Yer honor I raised this vixen. I am her father” he says.

    “He’s not my father” I protest.

    “Not yours; I’m Joan Tree’s dad and I know you don’t play poker or shoot craps with her using her cards or dice” he says as he forces the die from her hand. He rolls it several times and every time it comes up a six. He looks up at the judge and says “If you want to bet this little lady’s life on the roll of a die at least use an honest piece.”

    The die is rolled and come up a two. I have two days crucified facing me but that beats four! I also get satisfaction watching Joan Tree being handcuffed and hauled off to the judge’s private quarters!

    WELL, THAT WAS LUCKY. YOU MUST BE PLEASED...ER...NOT QUITE AS UNHAPPY ABOUT THINGS NOW. ADMITTEDLY, YOU'LL STILL BE NAILED TO A PIECE OF WOOD, WHICH IS REMARKABLY UNPLEASANT, BUT YOU HAVE AT LEAST A 40 PERCENT CHANCE OF SURVIVING AND...

    I'M NOT REALLY HELPING HERE AM I? HEY, THINGS COULD BE WORSE. IS THAT BETTER?

    We still don't know how she selected to be nailed to the cross. She could still be screwed out of luck. On the bright side she will look damn good up on Messaline's Premium French Crucifixion Wood...

    Look, I have done my done my best to avoid the cross but sometimes things are out of my control. I can fill you in on a few things and have a couple of requests to make, OK?

    crux carry 026.jpg

    First I do not understand why I need to have a medical exam to be crucified and why does the damn doctor store his stethoscope in a freezer.
    inspection 005.jpg

    Yes, I signed the letter saying Tree could nail my arms in a tight ‘V’. It was my only chance of getting out of the alive.

    crux pose 044 a.jpg

    And I understand there will be full frontal nude pictures of me shot all over the web if you have to do low angle shots they CAN be done with taste.

    crux 243 d.jpg

    Bartnel has shown it can be done.

    crux 234 b.jpg

    I hold little hope Tree and the rodent can meet their high standards.

    barb crux 11.jpg

    …as I said…

    And Tree, I don’t even care if it can happen I refuse to allow you to post a picture of maggots crawling around there.

    crux maggots.jpg

    “Are you done” I ask.

    tree 1 a.jpg

    “For now” I reply. “Why do you ask?"

    barb crux 10.jpg


    -Barbara… getting things in order- I think…

    IMG_0846.GIF What is this contraption? Geeze!:confused:

    IMG_0847.JPG I repeat! I DID NOT CAUSE THE GREAT CRUXFORUMS CRASH OF THE SUMMER OF 2013!
    :BoredSmiley:

    IMG_0849.JPG I was only the rebel leader in the Great Rebellion of 2013, and I paid the price for that when they nailed me naked to my cross on the infamous Hill of 100 (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site with an admission charge and souvenir vendors). :oops:

    IMG_0848.JPG Since when does one need a medical exam before crucifixion. :eek:

    IMG_0852.JPG That medical exam was nothing more than another cheap Tree ploy to humiliate me! Yeahhh, you'd better hide your face in shame! :mad:

    IMG_0850.JPG Speaking of humiliation .... I thought I had made it clear by now that THIS view was verboten!

    :spank::spank:

    IMG_0851.JPG Oh No !!!!!! THAT is really naughty!!!!:spank::spank::spank::spank::spank::spank::spank::spank::spank::spank:

    merit - Verdienst - deserve
    merits plural from that
    And trough the de- the opposite from merit.
