AthenaTeach me how to be soft.Athena15 hours ago in Free Verse
Like Monet paintings.
All pastel and water color
So easily washed away.
But so breath takingly pretty.
Teach me how to be quiet. (Ha!)
Like the breeze whistling through the trees.
Delicate and belonging to Spring.
Turn my hurricane winds into something you can handle.
Teach me how to be beautiful.
A paper cut out doll from your magazines, so easily ripped in to two.
But don't I look so nice in this dress?
Make my hair like silk
Instead of a mess of tangled curls.
Take your burning hot flat irons and turn every fiery red head knot into golden blonde.
Style it until I look like a Hollywood princess.
Sick and utterly gorgeous.
Am I perfect to you now?
You took my storms and made me into a colorless July sky.
But you tell me 'Smile honey'
Cameras go 'Snap snap snap'
And I can hear my heart beat in them.
You've taught me this since I was born.
But I know better now.
My pretty is unique
Like wild flowers and thunderstorms.
Vibrant and loud.
And I will not be tamed,
A Day In The Life Of A Fat Soccer MomTrish Cunningham was slumbering peacefully in her bed. Dreaming happily next to her husband Paul, Trish was awoken by the screams of her two year old daughter Aurora waking up. While some moms at this time worked out or went to the gym, she was not one of those mothers, weighing in at substantial 280 pounds. Trish rubbed her eyes and looked at the time. It was 8:00 am on a beautiful Sunday morning. Most mothers used Sunday as a day to relax, unwind, prepare for the long week of work ahead. But for Trish, Sunday was the most stress inducing day of the year. Not because football was on, she despised the NFL. It was because Sunday was soccer day.A Day In The Life Of A Fat Soccer Mom20 hours ago in Short Stories
Trish was the fat, spoiled wife of Paul and overweight mother of three beautiful girls. They lived a big three story house in the suburbs. 12 year old daughter Megan, was the best player on her travel soccer team, the Tornadoes. She had brunette hair and was thin, unlike her mother she kept a very healthy diet. 8 year old daughter Kendall, was in
The Church of Self-LoathingAs the candles raze the air to illuminate flaws for his inspection, I confess a horror as I realise that the Minister wears my face. He preaches with my swollen tongue and carves a judgemental scowl into my forehead at the sight of me.The Church of Self-Loathing22 hours ago in Free Verse
He demands a blood sacrifice; a distorted evolution of self-flagellation. He wants my contrition and I want absolution from the sin of being alive. I manage not to flinch at this decree with a well-practiced reverence. I genuflect, draw my sleeves to half-mast in a silent salute to his dominion over me, and wash up to my elbows as best I can in the blinding black. Blood pools between stony-faced onlookers diluted with the sacrament of self-loathful tears, the only testament to my belief: “I am not worthy”.
Scarlet River P140 The sky was cloudy above, dark and heavy with rain. The musty air smelled moist, with hints of prey and leaves wafting through. Very little sound echoed through the trees, all animals having scurried to the safety of their nests. No wonder they call it the calm before the storm. Riverpaw thought. She sat heavily beside a fallen tree, taking deep breaths as she rested.Scarlet River P14012 hours ago in General Fiction
“Riverpaw, are you ready to go yet?”
The apprentice looked up. Smokefang, a grey tom with dark markings, stared down at her from his place beside Tigersong and Sparrowbreeze. The four cats had been assigned to a morning patrol together, and they were only halfway through their journey along the Shadowclan border. Riverpaw took a deep breath and stood, legs trembling slightly in protest.
“Yes, I’m fine. Let’s go.”
Tigersong simply smiled at her, while the two toms said nothing. Continuing forwa

Part 1 of FMG Theory by MagnusMagneto
By MagnusMagneto ( http://www.magnusmagneto.com )
[Hey everyone, this is the first installment of the editorial series that has been teased in many polls. Despite other categories doing much better in the polling for the first entry, I realize that this really is the best jumping in point.
It’s going to be a short piece, and will say some things that most of you will say “well, duh!” but I think it stands to be reiterated, and could potentially open up some avenues for discussion.]
In simplest terms, FMG is an acronym for Female Muscle Growth. It typically pertains to stories, art, and occasionally other media in which a female grows muscles. FMG, for many, is a fetish; that is to say, the common reader thoroughly and deeply enjoys the concept of a woman becoming more powerful. For others, it may be a novelty, something interesting/funny to read, or a personal power fantasy (a woman may imagine

The Ultimate Dragon Ninja...
Raised in the ways of the ninja since infancy, Ryu Hayabusa has made a name for himself as one of the greatest and most recognizable ninjas in fictional history. He is proficient in many forms of weaponry from swords to bows and has weaponized his very spirit to summon dragons, generate electricity, and heal from seemingly-fatal wounds, using these skills to topple everything from war machines to demon lords. But, alas, there was one ninja who bested him in the ring--the Leaf Village's resident knucklehead, Naruto Uzumaki.

And the innocents' beg for salvation,
Once an angelic warrior, now demonic prey,
Trapped in Sanctuary, or oblivion, or worse,
Outside screams, cries, on bloodstained paths,
The keep is falling, and the lamps submit to the darkness,
Save you, save me, no one’s safe here,
Nightmares, consume every thought,
Visions of dismay infest the living; fuel the undead,
Luscious flesh left sated by sin,
Help me; give me a sign! —Be my savior,
I have prayed to you, honored you,
Yet, you curse me with a path of loneliness,
How can I redeem myself, if I am destined to fail?

You're nothing more than a waste
You think you're special?
You believe you're in good health?!
Ha! Just listen to me..."
"Oh you can't deny me.
I am your voice within
The one who helps you breakdown.
Am I not here for you?
Bounded to you from birth?"
Shut up, and I will tell you now
Go fuck yourself sideways
Take your negative traits away
Before I kick you out the door.
I am not listening to you no more.
Oh what a joke you are,
You are nothing.
You are a burden, not a friend,
Didn't I say shut up?
Or did I fucking stutter?
Too long have you held me back
Caged my being in the black.
And before you even reply
I don't believe a word you say
I am good in my own way.
I have talents, I have strength.
What do you have?
Just formless words you think
Could turn me further into despair.
"Oh my, my. Aren't you a one?
How can you deny your own voice?"
Deny? No. But I will

Spoilers ahead for True Lab and Pacifist Route and Gaster.
Gaster's wife (and Sans and Papyrus' mom) fell down/got really hurt, and was near death. In a moment of desperation, Gaster drained DT from some of the human souls with the already existing DT extractor. She survived, but was semi-melted. They both agreed it would be best for her to remain hidden in the lab. When he fell into the Core and disappeared (read: was scattered throughout the time-space continuum), she kept away from the main and True labs, staying in the rarely used storage and misc. rooms. Frisk and Alphys see her when checking through the rooms for Endogeny, who went looking for something (there are no cameras down there, so they can't just go through the feeds).
So, that's my AU.
Also, I have no idea what to call this. Any ide

The time had grown late and you were walking through the empty streets alone.
You stopped and smacked the side of your head since the centipede was still inside, you then pulled it out from the your other ear.
Your first thought was to just leave it, but you decided to keep it instead as a reminder. You put it in your pocked and began to walk towards Beacon.
Before you took another step you had flashes of what just happened flash into your head.
You begin to cry, but then instantly stop.
"I'm not human nor am I a faunus. I have become something. . . something supernatural." You say to yourself.
You heard thunder and it started to rain. You looked up at the sky as the rain fell.
"Somethings changing me, it's doing something to me, but what is this feeling? It feels, unnatural." You say to yourself.
You finally arrived at Beacon and walked to team RWBY's dorm. You stood at the door, feeling unable to open it.

Why My Heart Begins to Bleed (Poem)Why My Heart Begins to Bleed (Poem)17 hours ago in Free Verse
This pain I feel profound
Where nothing feels so sound
No comfort giving light
Just fetid ridden blight
In my heart
It never goes away
As my symptoms do not sway
From tears that I have shed
From the times I've gone to bed
From these pains I have to face
As nothing gives me grace
From these times I always cry
Would be better if I just die...
Emotion One, Gullibility [Ken's Story]Loli and Umbra were called to a disturbance between 2 imp spirits who wanted to cause havoc among the human world (an average bridge calling, nothing special) but Katsumi thought this would be a great idea to watch a fully trained bridge in action, solving problems that harm the edge of the spiritual and human worlds.

Katsumi and Flamewolf stood by as Umbra examined the scene, they walked over to the unconscious boy but Umbra wandered off to see what had happened. His eyes flickered open, and he sat up, incredibly dazed. Katsumi couldn't just watch Umbra examine the scene and ignore this poor boy, she had to help (even tho

Every day, while my friends and I played out in the front of the school grounds, there would be an old grandma in front of her house across the street rocking back and forth on her creaky little rocking chair. She didn’t ever really do anything, except look up at us and smile, and then look back down. Even so, she was the center of the entire fourth grade’s rumors.
“Did you see that?” Arin said, grabbing my shoulder to catch my attention. He had his finger pointed out across the street at the old woman, who held her head down as she rocked back and forth. “She was watching us again, I swear!”
“No she isn’t” I said. I never really understood what about her spooked people so much; she seemed nice enough, and the way she smiled reminded me a bit of my own grandmother.
“No, I promise!” He said. “See, there! She was watching us again! Didn’t you see?”

Blake and I had just reached the entrance to the ballroom and the first thing i see was Yang and Ash sitting near the second table to the left not even turning to look at me. He's probably embarrassed because of the way he looked. He was wearing a black tux and instead of his hair being ragged up, its kinda wavy to the left. Ash never liked to put on hair gel since his hair is natural to spike up like that. Hehehe i think Yang had something to do with that.
Yang: Hey guys, you're here early.
(Y/n): Yeah well, wouldn't wanna be late for any special occasion. Now if you'll excuse me. . .
I left Blake with Yang to talk before the people that are coming start to arrive. I walked over to Ash and pulled out a chair that was on the opposite side of the table.

I know you could probably write a book on this pasty white

book of yours consists of love notes on how my eyes

I know, all I am is skin and bones but I never asked

years I have tried to gain weight, to look as full and

laughing at how the doctors made my mother feel like
she didn't feed me when I was eight or at how I have
rarely seen a time when there weren't ribs poking out
