Still using my dreamwidth because my webmaster was gone last week and I'm at a convention in Salt Lake City this week (I got to hear a lecture by a Nobel Prize winner! How awesome is that?)

Continuing with These Haunted Hills with a very unromantic snippet I'm afraid. they're talking about the Ridges insane asylum.

Since I'm traveling I can't share a picture of the windows they're talking about but you can read up on the Ridges here if you want.

Joshua led Brendan closer to the building before pointing up to the window. Iron scroll work in pretty spiral patterns covered them. “Like I said, Dr. Kirkbride wanted the asylum to be pretty, less like a grim jail. So instead of iron bars, he made it into decorative metalworking hoping it would help lift their spirits.”

“It is pretty though I’m betting it didn’t help much.”

“Doubtful, especially when you know countless icepick lobotomies happened in this place.”


If you'd like to play along, Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook community where we post up 6 sentences of one of our LGBT stories every Saturday. It's been fun and you can find it here. Be sure to check out all the offers! It's been a great supportive group!
