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.

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

That’s where you had met the Maximoff twins, at first they had been on the wrong side of the fight, but during over time things had changed and Steve and brought the two with them.
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.
Then again it didn’t work well when being told to confess to you, you’d always been training for a few hours in the training room.

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, yourself, and Armin were on your way to meet up with Mikasa and Marco at the local children's science museum.

A huge grin was plastered on his face as he was proudly holding the hands on his hips. His strawberry blond locks were nicely framing his face and on top of the head he had a tiny hat with white straps. What intrigued you the most about him were his crimson red eyes and that slightly longer canine you could see when he showed off his smile.
“Oh, Vlad. It’s a pleasure to…” But you didn’t have time to finish the sentence, because the Romanian tackled you into a tight, crushing hug, nuzzling his face in the crook of your neck and muttering something. “Um… Okay…”
