Looking for a Story

malbywax1

I read a story a while back regarding a guy who witnesses a car accident and ends up the nanny/protector/lover to a family. He turns out to be ex-military and there is a quarantine on the town for some reason. There is a slight paranormal twist as the girls see auras and he is ?blue/purple? or something. It was a long multi chapter story and I can't seem to find it again.

Not it... Thanks though. I am not even sure it was on this site.

@malbywax1

I remember something vaguely similar although I'm not sure about the quarantine or the military aspects. The protagonist couldn't see auras but the girls could. Please let us know if you find it as I'd like to know whether we're thinking of the same story.

I believe we are AJ. The girls see his aura as a protector/caregiver and end up lover. The military part is him being referred to as the scrounge for his team... And the quarantine part had something to do with the water i believe.

I used the Story Text Search on the words aura military and quarantine. It returned only one story, Fleshware Requiem: a Zombie Apocalypse Story by XXXecil.

If knew how to link to the url I would. Sorry about that.

I hope that's the story you want.

"A zombie story" would have been a handy thing to list, as it seems more pertinent than the other story details.

Crumbly, go to the top and read the inquiry. No where does malbywax1 mention zombies or I would have included that in the search. All I can do is play it as I see it, or as malbywax1 remembered it.

It would have been helpful for you to explain how to link the file information to the inquiry. Thanks for the link ian181.

Sorry, you misunderstood. I wasn't directing the comment at you, but at malbywax1, the original poster. I only quoted you because I was responding to what you found.

For the link, you can usually simply copy a link (from SOL) and copy it into the forum post. The submission wizard should handle the formatting for you, but it's basically an html < a ref=""> command (for those of us familiar with html, which I wouldn't expect everyone to know).

That is fairly simple although most don't think of doing it. open link in a different tab/window. Highlight the address bar and right click it. Select the copy option. Now go to the window where you are writing the message for posting. In an empty space right click and select paste as the option. It should insert the address for the link. When I do that I usually identify the site being linked to since some of those darn addresses are not obvious in what is being linked.

As that world renowned former Texas governor once said, and will undoubtedly say again, "Opps".

I do appreciate the how-to information.

I wonder, was the zombies story the one malbywax1 wanted?

Damn, I'm still a Nizzgrrl

malbywax1

No... No zombies. It was a wster or food thing. Thanks for all those who are trying...

malbywax1

Anyone else have any ideas for this one?

The protagonist witnesses a car accident where the father is killed. The girls can see auras and the mother hires him to be kind of a nanny-esque person. Really long story.

Vlfouquet: stories A Howly-Howard story. Not the story you are looking for but you might like it. Has some of the same traits as you described. I'd like to read your lost story if you ever fined it.
