Chapter 2 “Genres” – Section 6 “Young Adult”
With Links to Supplementary Material
The next on our list of genres to talk about is the Horror genre. I talked a bit about this on my chapter on creating a Monster; but horror does not necessarily require a monster, just like monsters do not necessarily need to be strictly within the horror genre. So I highly recommend checking out that chapter as the second half of this one—as I will attempt to avoid repeats in information.

Gift for wolf-chibichan
Warnings: Literally one word of bad language.
The moment Hige had suggested to eat that sickening carcass of a deer, [Male Name] knew that there was something wrong with him. Hige wasn't ill, wounded, or out of sorts. He was just downright crazy.
"You're disgusting," [Male Name] sat down on the floor, tail gently batting across the floor. He blew a wispy little sigh out of his muzzle, shaking his head. "I'm not eating that."
"You're hungry," Hige responded, sliding towards the somewhat larger wolf, bumping their shoulders together. "I can hear your stomach. I can smell your hunger. Can't get anything past this nose," his brown fur rubbed against [Male Name]'s dirty, [hair/fur] colour, and Hige's collar dug into the other's neck.

because he couldn’t say
It was one of those times
when his tongue was an anger,
his insides an outburst of words
and every particle of the universe
he has inside him.
He was fourteen
when he made the excuse
it was probably the overwhelm
of being anti-poetic and Shakespearean
at the same time
that robbed his voice box
of his voice.
He’s twenty-three now,
taller with his own share
of metaphoric broken bones
and drunken one-night stands
but none the wiser on the stars
he keeps wishing on.
There are two things you can have
when you’re afraid:
courage or more fear.
And he realised with a smirk
and a pitfall in his stomach,
that he’d been allowing himself
to ride more on the latter.
But yes, he loved her very much.
He just got too drunk

You didn’t hold anything to the two cause they had believed that revenge was one way, but then again they could always just keep a rather comfortable distance from Tony Stark.
Though unknown to you...you have caught the eye of the speedster twin, course Wanda had taken notice and never really let her brother spend much time not knowing it.

Heavy rain hit Adrian in the back of the head, the rain seemed to be thicker and thicker and was being unbearably painful to continue to drive through. With the hail like rain hitting Adrian from the front it wasn't long until he simply gave up trying to get home on his bike, and just as Adrian was preparing to get off the bike, his bike hit a large rock, propelling Adrian forward and sending him flying through the mud and leaving his bike stuck in the mud. Adrian slowly raised himself out of the mud, trying to wipe off most of it from his shirt and pants. He squinted as he looked forward in the pouring rain, there was a building in a distance, close enough for him to make out what it was.
Leaving his bike under the cover of some bushes and leaves, Adrian sprinted for the building. As he drew closer and closer Adrian was able to make out the shape of a Pokemon Day Care center, a pretty uncommon but not unheard of sight in the region that he lived in. Adrian bu

The bulging bumps raised up to twist.
They do not hear the words that ring,
Hollow but true from out your lips.
Poetry is dark and bright.
It speaks of both the day and night.
But does is speak about the truth,
Or simply show in some false light.
For those that write of their own pain.
Some others think it is just for gain.
But how does that make much sense,
To enjoy works by telling blain?
I have cut and I have torn.
The shameful mask of grief I've worn.
But I can and will not tell,
Of days I wish I were not born.
So offer not some snide sympathy.
Or think to give some chide empathy.
I care not for what you choose to say,
About my own instability.
Offer care and offer love.
But offer not the silken glove.
The gentle lie that hides so well,
The hand outstretched but set the shove.
They see the scars upon the wrists.
The bulging bumps raised up to twist.
They do not hear the words that ring,
Hollow but true from out your lips.

A ‘DREADFUL AMY’ STORY

Amy took the crisp, plain white paper from her bag, and slid the lid carefully off the thick black permanent marker she’d swiped from the school stores. The nineteen year-old troublemaker stood with her tongue poking out of her mouth in concentration, leaning against a conveniently placed brick wall. She wrote in bold capitals in her still somewhat childish scrawl the words every bratty kid has occasion to write at some point during their mischief making, and Amy more than most:

Eren grinned at the shorter blonde, "She's high on all those pain meds, I'm sure she'll love the science museum."
Eren, yourself, and Armin were on your way to meet up with Mikasa and Marco at the local children's science museum.

You wanted to go to the science museum so badly, and you planned to go today, but you forgot you had your surgery, and you already bought tickets. So, Eren didn't want to hurt you, so he thought it was fine bringing you after your surgery.
