POTM - April 2017
« on: April 27, 2017, 08:07:28 PM »
Fleeters,

I has been another busy month here at Shadow Fleet.

One than began with April Fools (I hope you were amused by the different colored snow ;-) and is ending with the return of a few veteran players.

We saw the launch of a new SIMM, the Challenger.  And the launch of our Featured SIMM, Last Chance.   And, of course, the writing of our Post of the Month:

[Docking Ring]

In her younger days she might have stooped to the level of telling off the little weasel, but now that she was a respected doctor with a sense of honor and duty to uphold, she had to settle for glaring at the little Ferengi man with all the animosity she could muster. Nevertheless, she was restrained in her anger. She dug her nails into the palms of her clinched fists as she bit her tongue in silence. She breathed through her nose and tried to lower her heart rate. The hunger in the way he looked at her, sickened her stomach.

Don't let them see you sweat, she told herself.

She was no one's source of entertainment.

As hard as she had worked to overcome the stereotype of the eager to please dancing slave girl, it always seemed like there were ten more like these Ferengi men who couldn't see past her green skin. However, she would not let herself be dragged down. If anything, their attitudes only validated her need to push harder and further her own cause.

Later, she would draw upon this experience to reiterate to her daughters that this is how others look at them, this is how many would choose to see them, but this was not what they had to be. Through hard work and dedication they could do whatever they wanted to do and be whoever they wanted to be and maybe, just maybe, one day those with views like the Ferengi would be but a small minority.

Luke Stafford had the following to say:  "In this powerful post, Naira goes through a series of complex emotions when she experiences sexism. It's a wonderful, well written post, powerful and brief. There is no dialogue, but the post is so strong it does not require any."

Please help me to congratulate Naira!

Sincerely,

Kirok

Thank you for your concern, but reading and writing are two activities that relax me and I always like setting a good challenge for myself.
