    Summary

    How do you know when leaving is the right thing to do? How do you know when it's time to start thinking about yourself, your own future? And once you do, the question is, just how do you go about it? There might be fifty ways, at least, but which will serve the purpose best? That is one of the questions Craig Garrison now has to ponder.

    Summary

    Tempting fate, that was what it had been, and by now he should have known better. Craig Garrison remembered that moment all too well, the moment when he'd shaken his head, *wondering why he'd worried so about how to explain things to Meghada. It seems she hadn't even turned a hair, not with Danny, or now with Eloise. {"I would be interested to see what WOULD put her in a flap,"} he thought casually, then felt the universe still, as if listening to his words. Frantically he thought to himself, {"I didn't mean it! I didn't mean it! Please, I swear, I didn't mean it!!!"}

    Somehow, though, he was afraid he was too late. Someone, something, somewhere had been listening.*

    Summary

    When an enterprising set of adversaries decide to use a different tactic to undermine and ultimately break up the team, will they be successful? In the more relaxed atmosphere of their home base, will the guys be alert enough to catch on in time, or will they buy the con and allow themselves to be turned against each other, putting them all at risk? An overdose of testosterone, along with an embarrassing misperception by the usually astute Craig Garrison, muddies the waters and leads to a showdown that gives the villagers plenty to talk about in the days to come.

    Summary

    Garrison had often thought they were lucky to be stationed away from London HQ, at least for his own peace of mind. Nevermind all the mischief and antics his guys could get up to in the city, HQ itself could be a minefield at times.

    Oh, sometimes the happenings at London HQ were routine, but often not. Sometimes they were puzzling, often boring, sometimes infuriating; sometimes they were just plain bewildering. Only rarely were they amusing. This time? The situation with Dr. C. W. Landringham? Well, what you called THIS incident depended on where you were standing, but some wags took to calling it a prime example of Disorder-ly Conduct. A pair of lowly file clerks called it, among other things, Protective Coloration. There hadn't been much laughing around HQ recently, and more than a few thought it a pleasant change, even a great morale booster. Well, perhaps not Dr. Landringham, but most everyone else.

    Summary

    What happens when Actor decides to prove he can be just as 'common' as his team mates? No, he's not willing to actually CHANGE, (after all, he worked hard to become who he is!) but he decides he might take a run at trying to see how much he could ACT common, if he wanted to, interact with others more as his teammates did. Will he find some of the 'common' things actually suit him? And how will his associates react to his apparently turning over a new leaf?

    By the time it was over, Garrison was willing to pay big money to get his second-in-command back again, snobbish, top-lofty, arrogant, serious and superior man that he was. Because, frankly, his nerves just couldn't handle the 'new' Actor, and there's more than a few others who pretty much felt the same.

    Summary

    Actor had thought never to see her again, yet here she was, standing in front of him. Her name was Emerajde. She hadn't changed - she was still lovely, she still wore orchids in her hair, she was still bent on revenge. Oh, and she was still a ghost.

    Summary

    A story inspired by three quotes:

    "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" - Leonardo da Vinci

    "The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook" - William James, Father of American Psychology, co-developer of theory of pragmatism.

    "We worry, dread and fear what hasn't happened, and probably never will" - Mark Twain

    Summary

    (A Christmas Story, with a twist. If whimsy isn't your thing, feel free to skip.)

    Garrison and the guys were becoming fairly used to a Redmond showing up every now and again, and they had to admit each and every one of them was a unique challenge, no matter how similiar in looks they might be.

    This latest one, however, well, he was truly something else.

    Summary

    (In tribute to 'It's A Wonderful Life', with a strong Clan O'Donnell-style twist. Don't say you weren't warned.)

    Garrison found his men challenging in a goodly number of ways, had right from the beginning. Truthfully, although he'd shifted his viewpoint a great (great!) deal during their time together, he still found them challenging, each of them; would always find them so. Well, so did a lot of other people, of course. Major Kevin Richards had several grey hairs that he directly attributed to Garrison's men. There were more than a few up at HQ and elsewhere who thought 'challenging' was far too mild a word; some of the words they used instead were occasionally furious, sometimes bitter, sometimes grudgingly admiring. For the enemy, the words were even more so those not spoken in polite company.

    For Albert, an Angel-In-Training, in search of his wings, they were certainly a challenge, a challenge he was determined to take up, a challenge he intended to win, to use to gain his goal. Wings. Wings with which to soar.

    Summary

    Is there such a thing as irresistible temptation? Perhaps, though what that might be differs by individual. What happens when each man faces a temptation that just might prove irresistible? And if they give in to that temptation, who pays the price?

    Summary

    When a certain American Major by the name of Johns commandeers Garrison's Gorillas while Garrison is off on a solo mission, Garrison is NOT pleased, on any number of levels. However, he did derive more than a little amusement from the whole affair after it was over. Enough he shrugged and laughed and accepted the eventual naming of their first daughter, his, Goniff's, Meghada's daughter, 'Marya Couran'. "After all, Craig, what better role models could she 'ave than two of the tricksiest women we know?"

    Summary

    Waiting for the others to get back from their varied parts of the mission, Casino has plenty of time to think. If he were so inclined. Which he's not because, frankly, he thinks too much of that goes on as it is. He's pretty much always felt that way, figured he pretty much always would.

    Summary

    It was as if Fate itself was conspiring against them. Lynn Garrison and Actor had finally opened their eyes, realized they were meant for each other. Somehow, though, that celebratory dinner devolved into a disaster when a lovely woman showed up at their table, calling Actor 'husband'.

    This is the wrap-around story for the Lynn/Actor scene in previous vignette 'Unspoken'.

    Summary

    The last thing M'Terra O'Donnell needed was a mandated 'Clan Quest', but that's what she'd ended up with. Now, standing at the door of the Packhouse of the Columbia Basin Pack, she really wondered how this was going to turn out. Werewolves were such touchy individuals sometimes!

     

    For any random Garrison's Gorillas readers, this takes place long after the end of the war, far enough down the road that it is Craig and Goniff's granddaughter taking up weapons to fight against the foe. Of course, Craig and Goniff DO make an appearance.

    Summary

Yet, because of those two young men, there they were, Garrison and his team, headed into an almost certain trap, a trap that seemingly had already cost so many lives. Will they solve the deadly mystery presented to them by Major Richards? And even if they do, will they all make it back in one piece, or will they join the so many others who had perished. Only time would tell.
