The H&W Gang Discuss Their Pet Peeves - Guest Post by Jess Haines, author of the H&W Investigations series

The H&W Gang Discuss Their Pet Peeves By Jess Haines

Hello there!  Jess Haines here.  I’m the author of the urban fantasy H&W Investigations series (HUNTED BY THE OTHERS, TAKEN BY THE OTHERS, DECEIVED BY THE OTHERS, and the upcoming STALKING THE OTHERS). 

Shiarra has been having a pretty bad time of things lately. She’s here with some of her friends (and otherwise) to tell you about it.  Over to you, Shia!


Shiarra: Pet peeves?  Like what?  Chewing with your mouth open?

Royce:  I think we’re supposed to discuss something a little more substantial than that. For example, how a certain someone never lets me act upon the clauses in the contract that bind us together.

Chaz:  Hey, guess what my pet peeve is?  When the fanged wonder-boy here tries to put the moves on my girlfriend.

Shiarra:  I’m not your girlfriend anymore, you ass.

Chaz:  If you’d just give me a few minutes to explain, we could get past this mess and put it all behind us.

Shiarra:  That’s great. Just fantastic.  Can you guess what my pet peeve is?

Arnold:  Maybe now isn’t the best time—

Shiarra:  I’ll tell you what annoys me.  That son of a—

Sara:  Shia!

Shiarra:  …sorry.

Arnold:  You were saying?  Sans the cursing this time.

Shiarra:  I hate pushy Others who think they have some claim to me, and keep trying to get me to do things to or for them when they know how much I hate their guts.

Chaz:  Stop glaring. You don’t hate me.

Shiarra:  Wanna bet?

Sara:  Chaz, I know she’s not armed right now, but you might want to take a few steps back.

Shiarra:  Whose side are you on?

Sara:  The side that isn’t wearing their crazy pants today.

Arnold:  I bet those are a lot like hot pants.  Uncomfortable, too close to the skin, and publicly showing off more private details about that person than anyone ever wanted to know.

Royce:  I… have to admit I’m somewhat impressed that you managed to make a convincing analogy involving hot pants.

Arnold:  It takes talent, I know.

Chaz:  I don’t get it.

Arnold:  Well, you see—

Shiarra:  Arnold, don’t start explaining it to him.  My mind is already seared from that mental image.

Sara:  I second that.

Royce:  Shall we get back on track?

Arnold:  It bugs the hell out of me when people call a group of magi “mages”.  It’s magi. Say it with me, now: madge-eye.  Not mages. Not wizards. Not magicians.  Magi.

Sara:  People mess that up a lot, huh?

Arnold:  More than you can imagine.

Sara:  My turn!  I… uhm.

Shiarra:  Hmm?

Sara:  Well.  You know, I can’t think of anything off the top of my head.

Royce:  Oh?  Ms. Waynest has done nothing that bothers you? 

Shiarra:  Hey!

Sara:  Not really.  I’ve learned to put up with her shit over the years.

Shiarra:  …thanks?

Royce:  I see.  And the dog?

Chaz:  Watch it, or you’re taking a sun-bath, fangs.

Royce:  Charming.  Just try me, boy.

Sara:  That.  Right there.  You two, take it outside.

Royce:  With pleasure.  I would love to put an end to this, once and for all.

Shiarra:  I’ve discovered another peeve.

Arnold:  Go on.  Share with the rest of us.

Shiarra:  This is so cliché.  Vampires versus werewolves?  Come on.  Come up with something original.

Chaz:  It’s not my fault he keeps trying to put the moves on you.  I’m not going to just sit back and watch, you know.  You’re mine.

Royce:  On the contrary, dog, I am quite sure that the contract she signed has my name on it. 

Shiarra:  Hate. You both.  So much.  Right now.
