Hang myselfTonight,Hang myself6 days ago in Free Verse
The wind is howling
My chest is panting
and the dogs are restless
and I stare, mosquito stains on the wall
I'm just floating in this bed
Drained and full of wrinkles
and needles in the palms
I want to grab myself, take it off,
Hang it from the shoulders
Put it somewhere dry and clean
Tell me to rest for the night
Let the wrinkles loose
let the sweat of the day dry
and this heart have a shut-eye
Daddy! Haru x Mommy! Reader |More|Daddy! Haru x Mommy! Reader |More|5 days ago in Humor
You were in the kitchen, getting dinner ready, when a thought occurred to you. Your son was sitting on your father’s lap, and if you didn’t know any better you’d think they looked one in the same. Save for having your nose, Shizue Nanase was the spitting image of his father.
Not only that, but he seemed to have taken his personality, as well. He was quiet and cool, like his name implied, and on top of that he couldn’t stay away from the water for elongated amounts of time. He wanted to take a bath nearly every day, and while that was all well and good, his father was in charge of giving the bath.
...That literally meant they sat in the water, dead silent, lingering for hours. There was no washing included until you stepped in and made them both get cleaned up.
As of now they were in the living area of the apartment, watching some nature documentary on the ocean. You could hear Haru mumbling the names of certain sea creatures when they appeared on screen, even th

Hydro Frez: The reptiles have been fed and the pizza man is at the door! I can see the ending!
Tempest: It's time for, a DEATH BATTLE!
Nighttime, Streets of New York
On the rooftops of the quiet city, a lone turtle stood watch over a group of Foot-Bots and Kraang-Droids as they struck a deal. While the sun had long since passed, the moon hovered brilliantly in the sky, washing the city aglow in a gentle light, giving the turtle the vision needed to scout his enemies.
As soon as one of the Kraang-Droid had brought out a tube full of a glowing green slime like substance, Leonardo slowly wrapped his fingers around the handles of his ninjato swords and carefully crawled to the edge of of the roof, making sure to stay out of sight.
"Looks like Donnie was right..." Leo muttered under his breath. After detaching several large deposits of mutagen, the brothers had agreed to split up, making this their first solo mission in a while.

[We reveal the blueprints to the audience for what appears to be an awesome float made out of candy.]
Sally: The Candy Festival Float Competition!
April: Wow, this looks amazing.
May: It’s our first time doing this, we don’t have to make it this impressive.
Sally: Go big or go home I guess. It’s going to take a lot of work. I’m going to need both of you guys here every single day. May, we’re going to need your mechanical skills to get the float working.

The first time - Aomine Daiki x ReaderThe first time you noticed him was the day before school started. You had just transferred from [Country] and you were new to Tokyo. You happened to enroll in Tōō Academy as you heard they were famous for being one of the best high schools in the city. As you familiarized yourself with the area, you happened to walk by to see what appeared to be the basketball team practicing. Seeing you were familiar with the sport, you decided to check it out. When you reached the courts, you heard the squeals of girls as they watched with lovesick eyes. Frowning, you weren't sure what the fuss was about and turned your attention to the game. One male stood out from the group of boys and you felt your [eye colour] eyes widen, practically soaking the image of the boy into your brain. He was tall, about a whole foot more than yourself, with a dark shade of blue hair. You assumed his eyes were the same shade, though you couldn't tell from this angle and you hoped he wouldn't direct his attentiThe first time - Aomine Daiki x Reader2 days ago in Short Stories

If you've got a draft of a story or a story in mind, sooner or later you will begin to realize that you might want a certain quality—a certain epic intensity that you've seen and experiences with books and movies that keep you on the edge of your seat with tremulous excitement, and then makes you feel like your mind has been blown after you are finished. But wait! Doesn't Shyamalan try to make his movies epic, and just leave his audience irritated because in doing so he makes his stories seem terribly bloated and self-absorbed? Yes! But YOU can reach epic tension without making your story self-pleasuring and pretentious

Scarlet River P129 Riverpaw and Ava finally reached the clans with the full moon peaking over the horizon. Riverpaw’s heart was thumping as she raced along the edge of Windclan’s territory. As soon as she arrived at the clans’ borders, she had realized that there was a Gathering that night. At least there’s no chance of us getting apprehended by a Windclan patrol. Still, she kept out of the clan’s territory. There was still the chance that a Windclan cat would smell her scent and accuse Thunderclan of stealing prey or some such offense. Best to avoid conflict.Scarlet River P1291 week ago in General Fiction
Ava kept close to her, not saying a word. Riverpaw sniffed the air, catching the scent of Thunderclan. Her heart raced as the two cats neared her home. It felt like moons since she had left the forest, even though it had only been a few weeks. Can’t wait to sleep in my own nest again.
They plunged into the Thunderclan forest, jumping over the stream
The GardeniasI told you I had wildflowers growing in my veinsThe Gardenias6 days ago in Free Verse
and you thought it was quaint,
so when I took shears to my jugular -
you wouldn’t help me cut them out.
You thought I’d be opheliac
if they bloomed, splashing white
into my already paling wrists.
Maybe you thought the perfume would purify me
and being a tragic heroine
would be better than just being tragic.
Their roots choked out my heart and

as I died,
drowning in the after-effects of Pretty,
all I could hear
was you telling me that you loved
that I had Gardenias in my eyes.
These Humans Are Crazy - An Asterix essayIn other words: reasons why Asterix is a great, great comic, and definitely worth your time.These Humans Are Crazy - An Asterix essay4 days ago in Reviews & Guides
My personal history with this franchise is quite ancient. Over the many years I spent in its company, I met lots of people who had at least heard of it, but very few of them were familiar with the original series and its spirit. I thought it’d be nice to have a reference post about the general theme and the main elements of one of the most brilliant European comic series of the past century.
Asterix piqued my interest when I was almost too young to read, let alone understand it. Still, all phenomena of stellar popularity have a good reason behind their success, and it is usually the fact that they speak to us universally. They have a magic touch that is noticeable to everyone, regardless of their degree of understanding.
Needless to say, I only grew to appreciate it more and more. This comic is a masterpiece of fine satire – elegant

The Casket Caper - Part Eleven“Amanda! Amanda wake up!”The Casket Caper - Part Eleven3 days ago in Short Stories
The voice was familiar, but seemed out of place.
“Goddamn it, wake up!!”
Amanda’s eyes opened, but the flashlight blinded her. She squinted. A hand tugged her arm.
“Come on, sit up.”
Amanda couldn’t sit up: she was wedged in position. The plastic restraints bit at her wrists and ankles painfully. She managed only a futile “mmmm-mmmm-mmmm!” in protest.
The light came closer to her face. Fingers fiddled, nails scraped, then, in a single violent movement, the duct tape was peeled off.
Amanda spat the moist handkerchief from her mouth and gasped in precious air. Her face stung. “That really hurt,” she complained, her face screwed up with the pain.
“Yes well it couldn’t be helped,” replied Ciara. “Now keep still while I cut these plastic things.”
Amanda waited, powerless. “Where are we?” she asked, utterly confused.

The first fact you take into consideration is his tone. It's rude, you're aware; but that only seems to be a coverup. 'For what, exactly?' you ponder, lips pursing. A few suggestions simultaneously come to mind, but you settle on what you believe to be true.
Lips curling into a soft smile, you turn to face your tall boyfriend. He stares at you -- cheeks reddening at your sudden cheerful aura.
"Stop what?" you inquire, a laugh threatening to spill from your lips when he scowls.
"Looking at me like that," he's fast to answer.
"Like what, Tsukki?"
Tsukishima wrinkles his nose at the nickname, but doesn't comment on it.
"... Like you're pitying me, or something equally stupid."
You blink. Once, twice.
'Of all the things, that's what you're the most concerned about?' It doesn't surprise you all that much. Tsukishima is prideful, it doesn't take a genius to realize that.
"I'm not pitying you," you explain, offering yet another grin. "Unless you're implying t

That cut and sever weakened ties,
Of bonds that were never meant to be,
Just drowning in an endless sea.
Of strangers in a faceless crowd.
It's because of you,
Now I hope you're proud.
Of what you did to this now tainted soul.
Beaten, broken, swallowed whole,
By the darkness invited to envelop my being.
They always say that believing is seeing.
But I guess that's just it,
you see my forced smile.
After all it's been plastered on my face for awhile.
But is it too late? I don't really know.
But the longer I sit here,
The more darkness will grow.
Am I too far gone? Is there no hope?
Will I keep slipping down this bottomless slope?
Do you see now what you have done?
I give up...now you have won.
I'm trapped, enslaved in this dark empty trance.
I say I am fine...
But will you risk that chance?

HOW DARE SHE?!
How dare that blue haired feline humanoid do that to my beautiful figure?! I looked like one of the blimpish women from the planet Zep-bline! And then send me flying away like some deflating balloon? I shall have my revenge on her!
It seems my foes are not so easily vanquished. I must do my best to place surveillance and watch their every move.
It seems this feline humanoid, Raiza, does that same thing to her partner Aria on a frequent basis. Like a child or a cat playing with their toy.
But one thing that astounded me, was how Aria's body handled it. Her body seems to transform to be more like a female Amazarian, the most coveted species in the universe!
I must discover how she accomplishes this! If I can master this, no man would question my beauty ever again!
After much digging, I have learned it all started with something they call a "vacuum cleaner"
Using my lab, I have constructed one to be the same as the one Aria trained on.
