Post The Beacon Scouts (Stories)
So a little while ago I decided to really try my hand at writing stories. I had the idea for these stories rattling around in my head for awhile, so without further ado I present to you the Beacon Scouts.

The Beacon Scouts are a series of short stories about the scouting group of the same name. The kids that make up this prestigious respected tolerated group get into all sorts of hi-jinks. The stories take inspiration from such things as Calvin & Hobbes, Foxtrot, Junie B. Jones, Ramona Quimby, and Bob's Burgers.

They feature humor, friendship, comical accidents, badge hunts, farcical occurrences, and hugs.

Here are the links to the current stories:

Setting and Characters

An Introduction to the Beacon Scouts: A short overview of the Beacon Scouts as an organization.

The Town of Rhodes: Here I describe Rhodes, the town the strange upstate New York town the Beacon Scouts live in.

Beacon Scout Picture: A picture of all the main characters with some short descriptions and information for each one.

Stories

The Beacon Scouts and Bird Watching: Two Beacon Scouts run into more trouble than expected when trying to earn their bird watching badges.

The Beacon Scouts and Forest Exploration: Three Beacon Scouts end up bonding during an exercise in a forest.

The Beacon Scouts Get Locked In: Two Beacon Scouts stay too long after a meeting and end up locked inside a church.

The Beacon Scouts Confess: A Beacon scout recounts a story of how he helped another Beacon Scout during confession with a priest.

The Beacon Scout's Cupcake Adventure: The Beacon Scouts get together to make some cupcakes. Surely nothing can go wrong at all.

The Beacon Scouts Try Not To Get Mauled: In this story three Beacon Scouts have a close encounter with one of the beasts that prowls the streets of their town.

The Beacon Scouts Ride Out A Storm: Various Beacon Scouts deal with their problems as a storm comes to town. Much will be revealed. Or at the very least hinted at.

Beacon Scouts Vignettes: Short glimpses into the Beacon Scouts lives. Wackiness ensues.

The Beacon Scouts Go to the Mall (Part 1, Part 2): The Beacon Scouts take a shopping trip to a dying mall to learn fiscal responsibility. Surly they couldn't get into trouble, right? If you answered yes, this is probably your first time reading one of these stories.

I hope you enjoy the stories!

Even after that first paragraph... what a vocabulary! I was actually surprised they were real words with relevant meanings. Well done on vocab alone!

Thank you very much!

I'll admit though, for some I had to have an online thesaurus open next to me.

There's a new story!

The Beacon Scouts Confess

A Beacon Scout recounts a story of how he helped another Beacon Scout out during confession with a priest.

This story introduces the final two Beacon Scouts, as well as Scout assistant Jana in person. After this, there will be a story with all nine Beacon Scouts.

This story took me a long time to write. Just eventually forced myself to finish it. Despite that I like the final result.

The Beacon Scouts Try Not To Get Mauled

In this story three Beacon Scouts have a close encounter with one of the beasts that prowls the streets of their town.

Scout Leader Steward looks a lot like Michael Grosswhich is no problem at all.. And these are actually some pretty neat stories, how have I not looked at these before, I do not know.

Also Hurray for fleshed out setting!

Huh, I guess he kind of does. I don't know much about Michael Gross, but maybe the artist did.

Anyway, I'm glad you've enjoyed them. :)

I'm about to begin work on the next one, so stay tuned.

Well it took my a long while to get around to it, but I've finally begun to work on the next story. Since I haven't updated in awhile, instead I'll share a picture my friend drew of Felix (And here's a link to her deviantart).

P.S., Sorry to my fans (all two of you) who thought this was a new story. I am working on it!

Various Beacon Scouts deal with their problems as a storm comes to town. Much will be revealed. Or at the very least hinted at.

It's the longest one so far, and I really like how it turned out. I hope you enjoy!

My, it has been awhile.

I ran into writer's block while working on the next Beacon Scouts story. So to provide content and get my creative juices flowing I wrote this! It's a series of five short stories featuring all nine Beacon Scouts paired into groups of two. "But wait!" You might say, "Wouldn't that leave one Beacon Scout alone?" Never fear theoretical reader, for Ruth meets a mysterious newcomer...(well to the stories, Ruth has actually known her for years.)

Beacon Scouts Vignettes

It's a week late posting here, but the next Beacon Sc out story is here, in two short parts.

The Beacon Scouts Go to the Mall (Part 1, Part 2)

The Beacon Scouts take a shopping trip to a dying mall to learn fiscal responsibility. Surly they couldn't get into trouble, right? If you answered yes, this is probably your first time reading one of these stories.
