The call was directed at my mother midway between the second and third floor in our apartment complex. Four of us stood on the freshly cleaned stairs. Mother, myself, the cleaning lady, and her little daughter.
Could you please spare some cooking oil?
It had to be one of the rare times I heard shame in someone's voice. The shame of having to ask burdened her immensely. She clasped her hands as she looked at us, and rushed to justify after a moment of silence.
I want to cook for the kids. It's been a week and I couldn't get paid to buy some.
I never knew words needed so much power to come out. She tried to shrug her nervous tone with a smile, but couldn't quite manage to. Instead she looked down.
I didn't wait mother. She taught me better, I knew better. There was much sorrow in a single question, and not the kind of sorrow a mother should be uttering in front of a child. I still heard bits and pieces of their conve

Kratos vs. Guts
Submitted: July 13th, 2012
Fight Word Count: 2,839
When I first decided to start this trend of DB-Writing, I knew that I had to make a strong first step. It had to be bloody, brutal, and over-the-top. After having read "Berserk" and, inspired by "Kratos vs. Spawn", I decided this was a good place to start. While not extremely bloody and gory, I felt that it captured the two very well and that the final verdict was a believable one.
The fight itself, now that I look at it, is pretty dated. I've certainly come a long way since day one. That said, it does have some moments that I particularly pride myself on.
-This was the first ever Death Battle that I'd ever written
-The reason I wanted to do this was because, a few years back, the "Deadliest Warrior" fan-episodes were swarming places like Fanfiction and Deviantart. I watched Death Battle fo

As if I wouldn't figure it out.
I may be a fucking puppet,
But I'm not as stupid as I appear to be.
So that's fine, I hope you're happy,
Because I'll go and find my last match.
I'll ignite it,
Listening to the satisfying FFT noise of an ignited match.
I'll burn my strings,
I'll burn my ees and watch them melt off my face,
I'll burn my limbs and watch,
Watching them fall like lifeless tree trunks.
And finally I'll set myself on fire,
Until I'm nothing more than fucking ashes in the wind,
Free from all of the pain I've had to endure up to this point...

Oz could feel the lightning building within him. It was already infusing its ferocious heat into his veins. Slowly. Crackling like a rogue firework. Usually he might've suppressed it. Pushed it back into his body and let it fizzle out, but not this time. This time he needed it. So when the agony came pressing down on his lungs and his stomach churned with vertigo, he welcomed it. He was its vessel, after all.
In contrast to the raging heat inside of him, the floor feel cold under his fingertips. The cell was like that. Cold. He pressed his face against it, feeling his cheek burning on the concrete.
"Oz? Are you alright?"
It was then that the voice lilted into his consciousness, sweet and deep, like the ocean. Soothing. Cold. Something inside Oz regained control and he lifted his head slowly. On the other side of the cell sat a boy. Crouche

Portland, Oregon – June 19th, 1975
Twas the night before Erika was to leave to meet the Freedom Train in Chicago and she couldn’t be more excited. She had cried when she moved on her own for the first time in years only two months ago and again when she was christened. All the people that had gathered to see her when she went to Swan Island reminded her of her Daylight years and it was beautiful… even if she still didn’t like the paint job she was in. She did like the makeup job Mary-Ann did with the red eye shadow with white lining and matching red lips. Along with her blue eyes she matched the Freedom Train colors perfectly! There was still some doubt in her mind that this was a temporary thing, but she tried to keep those thoughts at bay. She needed to stay positive, for the sake of her own sanity.
“You look beautiful, Miss Erika.”
Erika looked down and smiled a little at the small SD40-2.

It sounded like the beginning of a bad joke…
What did they all have in common?
They weren’t in Oz anymore…
The cowardly lion, who was no longer cowardly and preferred to be called Leo, rode atop the horse of a different color across the amber waves of grain in Kansas.
They were greeted by the sight and sound of a small black dog running towards them, alerting its owner to their unlikely visitor.
What a sight they were to behold, Dorothy would remember it always, along with the giant spider that suddenly appeared out of nowhere, chasing them.
The arachnid, Dorothy later learned, had encased the Emerald city with its web to use as its nest. The citizens would be a food source for its babies once they had hatched.
How Leo had gotten there, no one could be sure. While he played bate for the eight-legged monster, the Tinman and Scarecrow planned to liberate the capital. Leo remembered only thinking of Doro

Tickle fun with my nephews and cousinMy two nephews, Grant and Stone, twins age 11, and my cousin Andrew, age 12, all came over the other night to swim, play video games, and spend the night. We also played poker and the little goofs beat me soundly. Later we were watching a movie on DVD. All three boys had on t-shirts, short pants, low cut socks, and sneakers. Stone likes to sit almost on top of me when we watch movies, he is more touchy feeley than his brother. Stone also likes to get back massages from me. I took his shirt off to massage his shoulders and back, then he started to drop off to sleep and I said "Nope, no going to sleep yet" and I started tickling his underarms and sides. Stone is really ticklish and he immediately started laughing and squirming around (but he did wake up, lol). We wrestled a bit and I rolled him around and had his feet in my lap and I started to untie his shoes.

I was programmed to study the mental functionings of various biological beings, including a human, to observe and record the connective and associative processes. It seems this has affected some of my circutry, back in my first testing done to a mouse, nothing could distract my performance. Mice have interesting synapses, they are not all long tails and cheese, although it was something often in their minds, they were lab specimens, after all.

I'm convinced Derek is leading Jeff into the woods purposely. What has he got planned? Has he brought back up? A whole gang of people ready to jump Jeff? There's definitely something not right. And this bitch seems to confirm my suspicions.

John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984, nothing is as he expected it to be. This is Rumor Control, here are the facts! Over the past twelve years The Terminator franchise has become something of a punchline. After two great entries in a row the Warner Bros. released the largely forgettable T3 Rise of the Machines. Obviously it wasn’t well liked so an attempt to revitalize the franchise was made in 2009 with the not as bad as everyone says but not that great Terminator Salvation. But these efforts were in vain as Salvation received bad reviews and not a stellar box office return. Now after six years Paramount is giving the franchise a shot with Genisys, but this time the idea of multiverse theory is being thrown into the mix to create a brand new Terminator mythology. Will this revamped approach succeed or has this franchise finally been terminated? Let’s find out.

The storm clouds had rolled in fast. The Trilopod hive stood in the middle of the empty City of Angels, the civilians having evacuated long ago. Inside nearly all the earth's kaiju were captured and contained. The hybrid Trilopods stood guard. They were watching... waiting for something, or rather someone, to arrive...
Then suddenly they heard him. The roar of an angry king. Through the buildings they saw him appoarch from the west, from out of the ocean. Godzilla had arrived to end these parasites and save his friends. Most of them had been captured and he could sense them inside the massive hive, including Anguirus. Godzilla roared a challenge to the Trilopods. The Zilla hybrid was the first to accept the challenge. Climbing the side of a building, the creature tried to jump onto the kaiju king and ravage him tooth and claw. Godzilla caught the creature and slammed it into the ground. He grabbed it and threw into the Gezora hybrid
AnimalsYesterday I was out walking my dog, a fluffy purse sized pooch my wife had insisted on, when I saw this horse. Standing alone in a large grassy field, it was the cutest little thing. Maybe a pony but I couldn't tell. I hopped the fence and walked over to it, slowly as not to spook it. Miffy, the dog, followed at my heels.Animals12 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I stopped two feet from its head. The horse looked at me with wide brown eyes. "Its okay girl, I won't hurt you." It bent its head down to study Miffy, who was licking its ankle. "Its okay, she won't hurt-" I stopped talking as the horse unlocked its jaw like an anaconda, and swallowed the little mutt.
"Wh-what...?" The horse turned to face me again, eyes still seemingly innocent despite what I'd just witnessed. Tripping over myself, I ran back towards to little white fence. I had just reached it when I heard a sickening crunch behind me. I turned to see a full grown lion munching on the horse. I couldn't believe it. How was there a lion out

Spinning (In Her Grave)She came in a series of packages. The limbs were the first; their sectioned silver expanses reflecting the sunlight as I reverently opened the slender boxes. If I'm honest, I must admit my breath caught, but for a moment, at the beauty I unveiled. As the moment passed, I gathered the necessary materials and spun limb sections into their rightful place alongside their counterpart. The children crowded eagerly around, but lost interest quickly, even as I tinkered.Spinning (In Her Grave)7 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Once they were whole, I polished the limbs daily, spinning them in my hands and impatient for the next package. When it arrived, the children crowded me once more, their interest held a little better as I set about the work of connecting her, spinning her limbs all the while. It took me two weeks to finish, and by then the penultimate package had arrived.
This one would require far more time, and my deepest concentration. I sent away the children who crowded me, their lilting voices and speculations too much of a distraction. T

Multiple malfunctions detected.
The alarms turned off and all was quiet aboard the ship as it passed through space. A bot, its sole crew member, ruminated on its impending demise.
It rolled through to the repair bay and picked out a screwdriver. There must be something it could do with this – some way to make the malfunctions disappear.
There was a hatch on the bot’s arm held together with screws. It might hold something important.
The bot used the screwdriver.
The ship’s lights went out.

A red flood lit the walls. The bot continued to unscrew the hatch and liquid seeped out from underneath the crack.
