I didn’t notice all of the bottles
That littered the counter tops and the coffee tables.
I didn’t notice how you were always so unstable.
I didn’t think it odd for a moment
Because the whole time I’ve been around you’ve been broken.
I haven’t seen you actually happy
And it kills me.
I haven’t smelt your breath without a hint of liquor
Hiding behind it.
You’ve always walked around with a heavier shadow
The darkness sticks to you
It slowly made its way from your shoes
To your insides and ate away at them until you were left hollow.
A hollow shell.
Somewhere on the climb up the mountain you fell.
You broke all of your bones
And couldn’t make it back home.
You never saw what it was like to see from the top of that mountain.
To see that things get better,
So you never
The things that I never paid attention to when I was small
That I can see now.
And I feel so horrible

One of the most trending archetypes in modern literature and movies is the antihero. As such, it is also one of the most abused, used often to gain an automatic audience following, or to add sex appeal to a product. Alternatively, I see many beginning writers use the term “antihero” do describe a gritty, dark, or moody hero. All that being said—when created correctly, the antihero story is one of the best types available; which leaves only the matter of knowing the qualities which make a character into an antihero.
Quality 1: The Antihero has deep-rooted instincts to bring about both good and evil.
This is the primary difference that sets the antihero apart from heroes and villains. The antihero should never be just a moody hero that likes to dress in black clothing. Antiheroes are dynamic because they actually have the deep urge inside of them to do evil things, as well as good things. And a very good antihero should

"What?! No just send animal control or something!" Jensen shook his head as Jared grinned to himself.
"I'm good thanks Jen. Oh by the way can you tell Danneel I can't come over tonight?" You replied.
"Why?" Jensen asked looking up at you with his puppy look.

Nothing that is now really you
You shattered and gone
And now it's just one more person I used to know

When I think back, long ago
Back when our family was starting to grow
I will tell you a story
That takes place very early
It was a beautiful morning
Your father was still snoring.
He had your brother in his arms
I woke up feeling queasy
And I got up, that wasn't easy.
I ran to the bathroom and locked the door
Almost puking on the floor.
After that I took a test
And found out that
Yes! I was pregnant with you!
It was a long road, filled with twist and turns
Some troubles happy, others concerns.
It wasn't until 4 months when the problems had dropped.
Then I felt a terrible pain, and my heart almost stopped.
I had your father rush me to the hospital, the pain was too much for me
Your brother was confused, I was crying, letting out a pained plea.
But it was too late.
I couldn't save you.
I was too weak, you were too.
When I found out that you were gone.
I had no one to count on.
I never found out if you were a boy or a girl,
If you were going to have straight hair or curls.

The sun was drifting lazily among the clouds as (Name) walked into the home of Thranduil. She hummed as she enjoyed the warmth, eying the gorgeous, fluffy clouds that hid behind the huge, lush canopies of the trees. She was on a mission to visit her boyfriend, however, that didn’t mean she couldn’t enjoy the scenery around her, too.
Thranduil’s family was, simply put, loaded. A humongous home, a bright, vibrant yard that stretched for literal miles across the massive estate. (Name) loved to come and visit, sometimes, when she could. She’d invite the rather anti-social boy to come and do things with her, usually out in the world and not in his home. So, whenever she got the opportunity to gawk over it, she always did.
“Excuse me, I’m here to see Thranduil?” She said into the com of the front gate of the wide place. She felt a camera train on her form before the gates opened up, allowing her in to see her lovely man.

Then you'll see how much I cry.
Then you'll see how hard I try
To go through the day without wanting to die.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul,
But why would you wish to see something foul?
Why do you wish to see life take it's toll?
As if you'd really care anyhow.
Please don't look at who I've come to be.
It shames me for the darkness inside.
You don't want a piece of my misery.
That's why behind my eyes I hide.

If these things disturb you, don't read this.
It was lunch time, and all students went into the school canteen, all except one. There was a boy, walking into the library; his name was Nathan. He had brown spiky hair and green eyes, and he was wearing a singlet, a long coat and a pair of black pants. His hands were bandaged, and he had a golden necklace, with the form of a dragon. Nathan walked between the bookshelves, looking for a particular book. He stopped and looked at the shelf, smiling, "Here it is, and it's the last copy!" He whispered. He reached out to grab the book, but as he touched it, another hand grabbed the same book. Nathan looked at his right, and he saw a dragoness, who was picking the book. She was grey-coloured with white underbelly. She had a pair of elegant wings and her eyes were blue. She was wearing just a bra and a panty, because normal clothes wouldn't
Damien's Time - Quiet Lilith Lilith continued to be very quiet as the hunting party made it back into the camp, and began to prepare their meal for the night. She was usual very active, and moving all over the camp to help out anybody that she could during the preparation of the meal. Tonight she just went off by herself, and sat while waiting for other people to cook everything. Lucifer quickly realized that something must have happened to Lilith while she was out in the woods for her to be acting this way. He went straight to her to see what had happened, and if there was anything he could do to help.Damien's Time - Quiet Lilith15 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
