Mom's FavoriteMy sister was always Mom’s favorite. No matter what I did, she would always praise her over me. When I would climb a tree, my sister would climb a bigger tree, when I made breakfast, she made dinner and a fantasy dessert. It’s always been a competition. Mother’s Day was coming up and I wanted to get Mom something extra special. I planned the day to a tee and decided to make Mom the greatest dinner she ever had and give her the best gift I could ever give her. I went out to Framer’s Market and bought the freshest vegetables and spices, then I went to the import store bough the most expensive bottle of red wine I could. It was a special occasion after all. Early the next morning, I started cooking. I chopped the veggies and placed them in the water. I let it simmer and boil as I seared the meat on the stove. Then I deglazed the pan with the wine and placed everything into the crock-pot and let it cook all day. While that happened, I started to carefully wrap MomMom's Favorite17 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
ReleaseLeo was awake.Release5 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
He was awake and he was smiling, despite his weakness.
He would heal and he would be alright.
Raphael watched, from a few feet away, as Donnie gave their oldest brother yet another checkup, talking about the damage done, about healing times, about this and that and it all turned to white noise in his ears.
With infinite patience, Leonardo sat on the couch, answering whatever Donnie would ask him, smiling reassuringly at the youngest, at April, even managing a small grin for Casey.
When steel-blue orbs rose to find his, Raphael dropped his gaze away and off to the side, unable to meet his brother's eyes.
April blurted about Raphael's vigil at Leo's side and the automatic reply came before he even thought about it. “Eh, it was nothing.”
Leonardo kept his eyes on Raph, noticing the way he tensed, obviously feeling his eyes on him. He smiled.
“Still. Thank you, Raph.” And his brother only tensed more, lips thinning out, giving a stiff shrug.
Sara's Photoshoot of FearAs the repeated flashes dazzled my vision I could feel my cheeks begin to ache from the strain of smiling for so long. I stared into the camera lens trying to remain as happy as possible, though after an hour straight I was beginning to get impatient.Sara's Photoshoot of Fear19 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
“OK there Sara, so could you maybe move a little to your left…yeah that’s it,” the photographer told me with his eyeball pressed firmly against the lens. “Now would Abigail and Rachel like to take a step closer, and come on Harriet, keep smiling.”
I took some solace in no matter how fed up I was getting, there was no way I was in a worse mood then Harriet. For the red-headed tomboy this photo session was her idea of hell. I looked briefly at her and could see her putting on a smile I knew all too well. The ‘I’m going to smile politely even though I’m inwardly seething’ smile which Harriet did so well.
Her experience could not have contraste

“Let’s go to that house.” Clint pointed to a home behind (F/N). She turned around only to see an undecorated house that looked so beaten down it could collapse at any moment turning into a pile of ash. Grass was over grown and tree roots popping up from the ground, to only be covered by a thick layer of fallen leaves. But perhaps what was the most unsettling about the property was the lack of sound. Silence covered it like an oversized blanket that couldn’t be removed by the greatest forces. Normal you would at east hear the faint buzzing of a heater coming from a house at this time of year, but no such thing could be heard.
Suddenly (F/N) couldn’t breathe. Sure the both of them had been egging houses all night in there consume picking on whoever they pleased but this house. Hell no! She didn’t want to die, she was to fabulous to die. Everyone in town had heard stories ab

Pleasing the Bully
I'm 18 years old and I attend the final year at my school, it's going to be nice graduating.. Not only because I've grown tired of the school but also because I'm being bullied by this girl, called Jamie. She's not like other girls, she's violent and rough around the edges. She often hits me when we meet, call me names and steal my stuff. I would not miss the humiliation, as I wasn't strong enough to fight back in any way.
One day our relationship changed, it was a few weeks before graduation, I was walking home through a more secluded area. Suddenly, she was there, standing in front of me, she had this sadistic look in her face. Since we were all alone, I was a bit extra afraid. Perhaps I could bargain with her, offer something that could make her back off these remaining weeks of school..
- Look, you don't have to do this, Jamie..
- Oh? If only you had told me that years ago, would've saved us so much trouble!
- I didn't mean it like that, I mean,

Ray, a young, red furry dragon wakes, whistling catching his sensitive ears. The rest of his family mush have already headed out for the day's hunt. Ray has never been a morning dragon, he has always enjoyed a sleep-in a little too much. So the whistling must be very unique to arouse him like it has.
Outside of his cave is human teenage, walking through the forest near where the cave is. It's not unusual to find a human in these parts, there is a city not far from the forest, constantly expanding closer to his family's home. He has blond hair and blue eyes, plain clothing and an oversized backpack, probably filled with camping equipment. This has become pretty normal for Ray, he's seen several camp sights and dozens of campers in the forest, but so far remained undetected.
The human continues to walk in the forest, quiet clicks from a camera are heard above his whistles. Ray follows, remaining distant and cautious,

You didn't expect them to be human either, but here you were a day later sitting beside the black haired guy with glasses. "So, about earlier..." he was about to say before you cut him off "Do not bring it up, he did that on purpose and you know it!" you snapped bright blush on your face.John Egbert X Troll-Reader: part 118 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
You awoke face to face with a blond haired human wearing sunglasses, and it freaked you out to the point you started screaming. "See I told you not to get so close Dave." you hear a voice from somewhere off behind the blond. "I was just checking if she was breathing, I really don't think bro would like having a dead troll on the couch." Dave said smirking at you and backing away. "She's pretty cute for a troll." Dave's smirk widened. You sat up and were finally able to see the other person in the room, he had short black h

IS THIS ANGST OR GOOD ENDING?
After the heartbreaking argument of (Y/N) and Rin yesterday, Rin have been acting weird and not himself lately. He rarely goes to his swimming practice and when he does, he either leaves early or his stroke was off. His usual smirk was gone even if he wins a practice relay with his team. His smile...it was gone a long time ago when he left (Y/N).
Hannah's voice echoed at her home as she followed Rin to their table. Yes, Rin and Hannah were living together. Rin sighed and sat down on the nearest table before setting down his cup of coffee on the table. "You left me with your friends to go see that girl (Y/N)! Don't you know how embarrassing I was there standing like a statue with nothing to say?!" Hannah yelled but not angrily.

Walking down the grocery aisle, out of the corner of your eye, you spotted some brown hair sticking out from a small table.
You quietly walked around to not seem suspicious or alert the person, that you were there.
You hovered behind the person, which you now realized was Spain, and crouched down to his level. With a small whisper you asked, "So, how was your day?"
In a sudden jump, he knocked into the table in front of him, pushing it down.
"Ahaha, hola ____! Didn't see you there~" he laughed, while picking up the table.
"Obviously you didn't see me if you screamed like that." You said.
"Oh, ____-chan, always so cold *sniff* *cry*" Antonio faked a cry, and a few seconds later, burst into a smile-and-laughing fit.
"Oh, I must have been really strange-looking there when I fell huh?" Toni said.
You stared at him strangely, and walked off to do your shopping. Unfortunately, he tagged along...
As you reached out to get cereal, his hand grabbed it first, and tossed it in

Nana's General Advice on DrawingNana's General Advice on Drawing17 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A lot of people here on DA and in real life have been asking me, "Nana, how did you get this good at drawing?" or "How do you color like this, Nana?" It's been happening for a while now, so I've decided to share some general advice when it comes to drawing and stuff. I do both traditional art and digital art, but I'll lean more onto the traditional art stuff for now. I'll still talk about digital art and all that jazz though~
I. Practice every day, or when you have the chance. It helps a lot in the future.
Say that you've done your homework or chores, but have nothing to do. When that time comes, break out some white paper and start doodling stuff. When you have nothing to do in class, doodle in your notebook. Heck, I draw when I'm in the bus. I even draw when I'm sitting alone during lunch. Draw whenever you can, and practice every day.
II. Don't use just one color to color in an area of a drawing! That's bad for your (and my own) health!

The little ones shrieked all the way down, laughing as they rolled aside, straw stuck in their hair like golden porcupine quills. Lolly, a girl of 13 with strawberry-blonde hair and amber eyes, a white dress draping just past her knees, sat on the edge of the loft, her bare feet swinging back and forth as sh daydreamed to herself, rubbing her rosy cheeks.
"I say, child," the young girl said distantly to the little girl who sat beside her. "I can't wait until we get to the City. Imma buy me some pre'y pearlies and I'll buy you a cutie li'l dress all up with ribbons! Red! Pre'y red dress just for you."
The little one was small with chubby cheeks and a mess of unruly curly brown hair. She tried swinging her legs in time w
