An Author's Rules - Chapter 1: The AccidentIt was a normal day in the Authors HQ. The warehouse-like building sat inconspicuously just outside of a decent yet smallish city. The humans of the city assumed the place was abandoned, since there was never any activity in the distant structure. Little did they know that many things occurred in that old establishment, magical things beyond their wildest dreams...An Author's Rules - Chapter 1: The Accident1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
In the basement of the HQ – the Observatory, to be exact – a large globe-like orb stood on a pedestal, glowing slightly. On a smaller pedestal before the Orb sat a large, thick, ancient-looking book, its pages open and exposed for anyone to see. In front of the Orb beside the book stood a young woman, but she was not human. She was an Enderwoman, but her appearance differed greatly from that of a common Ender-being.
She had rainbow-coloured hair that reached her thighs, as well as dark blue eyes with pale teal scleras. She wore a white-and-teal striped sweater that hugged her hips, along with a pair of dark
The Author is DeadPlease, I need your help. We're both in danger.The Author is Dead5 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Do you see that corpse in the corner? The one with fluffy red hair? That's the author of this story, and she's dead. If you don't want the same thing to happen to you or me, you need to do everything I say.
Okay. First, turn off the volume on your device. The monster's still here, and it will attack if it hears you. Work quietly now...

That hole in the wall is how I can see you. You're all I have left, dear reader.
All of my teammates have been killed off- the other bodies you see. It is still nosing around them. Hasn't noticed me hiding by the rubble.

If there was one thing it could be said that Lanie hated, it was having to scroll through a story on the Internet and see those god-awful author's notes in the middle of the prose. They were often inserted as though pointing out to the reader that they were idiots for not having noticed something, or – more commonly – as an explanation because the writer couldn't explain something. She truly found the latter pathetic, since it wasn't that difficult to describe an object, or piece of clothing. And those authors never seemed to consider why any reader would need to know that Bella or Hermione or whatever-character-of-the-week was wearing the same dress Drew Barrymore wore in 1995 to whatever party.
Still, she was like a moth to a flame, clicking those links and voraciously reading those horribly-wri

Supreme Court Rules For Same-Sex Marriage
In a landmark ruling, the United States Supreme Court - with a vote of 5-4 - ruled that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marry, and states cannot take that right away from. them. This decision will require all 50 states and U.S. territories to recognize all legally-performed marriages from all jurisdictions. This makes the U.S one of about 21 countries that legally recognize same-sex m
