Welcome, friends! Great Beings, what a mess. Due to the latest BZP database hit, some of these stories (marked with a *) have screwy formatting. (They're still readable, if you don't mind that all the page breaks have disappeared.) The rest are missing from BZP.
The GOOD NEWS:
1. Most of my stories can be found in readable form at this web archive:
2. My Brickshelf still exists, www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?m=GaliGee.
3. I've uploaded everything in PDF form to my website, www.lilygee.com/galigees-archive.
Please come back here to comment on anything. Thanks for your patience!

Smiling, Makuta approached his seat. “GaliGee!

(short story)

(short story)
*That Annoying Gali Gee Mask Of Light Sig Countdown Just a wacky little list to kill time while I looked forward to watching Makuta's demise.
“Yes, it’s me, darling,” he smiled weakly. “Say, those blue eyes do look good on you, if I might say so myself. Why don’t we go somewhere we can talk?” *Makuta Explains As much as I dreaded another encounter with Makuta, I was curious about some things that he had done in the Mask of Light.

He glanced at Makuta’s staff and added, “And we don’t allow weapons in here.”Makuta leaned over him and grabbed his pen. He scrawled a large in the middle of the page.

“You didn’t think I was just looking for a traveling companion, did you?” sneered the shapeshifter. “I’ve seen road kill on this trip I’d rather spend time with.”I wondered what kind of sinister plan I was to be involved in this time as I fumbled with the complicated seat belt. “I suppose you’re going to use me as bait?”“Bingo,” she replied. Road Trip With Krahka Krahka is on the warpath to get revenge against Makuta, her former sweetheart. And naturally I get caught in the web of intrigue. (Dark comedy, posted in epics, 18 chapters)
Makuta looked at me for thoughtfully for a moment. “My poor little sweetheart. Fear is rising off you like heat waves off the Great Furnace right now.” A gentle smile crossed his Kraahkan. “If it makes you feel better, my beauty, we’ll keep our love secret until Roodaka goes back to Metru Nui. I’m certainly not averse to participating in the occasional conspiracy.”“Makuta, our ‘love’ is a figment of your twisted imagination,” I scowled, making quotation marks in the air with my fingers.

Kopaka had had high hopes for the Rau, but so far Nuju had told him nothing. "I guess I'll have to go read the answers for myself."

Turaga Vakama said to fill my journal with lots of detail, since I can always shorten it later when I transcribe it. Besides, it’s easier to write in a paper book than to carve into stone.
