"Aw, damn it!"
You looked up as you heard a loud crash from the kitchen, followed by your boyfriend cussing like a sailor. Sighing, you closed you laptop and stood up from the couch, making a beeline toward the kitchen.
"Alfred, what'd you break?" You didn't even need to know how it happened--you just had to make sure that nothing valuable had been broken (cause' if another one of your mothers plates had been broken, she was going to kill you). But judging by the shattered bowl shards scattered on the ground, the plates would survive another day.
"I was trying to grab a plate out of the cabinet, but there was a bowl sitting on top of it. I tried to be cool and balance the bowl on the plate as I was getting it out, but uh, that didn't work too well..." Alfred rubbed the back of his neck, a guilty smile on his face. You shook your head at your boyfriends antics.
"Come on, Al. Did it occur to you to just move the bowl off the plate before you got it out?"
"But it looked so much coo

Chapter 3 “Characters” – Section 2 “Bad Character Types”
With Links to Supplementary Material
Last we talked about the Types of Character you could add to your writing. But there are also character types that you want to avoid as much as you can. Using the following types of character is usually the result of creating them only to move the plot along. And while moving the plot is important, it is equally so to create an organic world that mimics the originality in the world around us—especially in the complexity and uniqueness of every human. I encourage you to go through your novel or cast of characters, and either eliminate or improve e
Gravity Falls: One Last Night of PeaceThe party was going as well as could be expected, considering the ordeal everyone had undergone. There was cheering from wall to wall, souls intermingling with one another, a grand room teeming with life and joyousness. Dipper proceeded through the crowd towards the cider fountain, grabbed an empty glass, and filled it up from the spicket towards the top so as not to disturb the now tired Manly Dan who was resting in the base pool.Gravity Falls: One Last Night of Peace21 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

That’s the perfect target, for the tickling ghoul.
Whilst the younglings chatter away
The tickling ghoul prepares himself for his prey…”
The four boys are aged seven, eleven, eleven and eight. The tickle ghoul waits for them to stretch out and relax. He smiles to himself, not expecting all four lads to place their arms above their heads! One boy – the seven-year-old – is wearing a rash shirt. His feet will have to do. For the rest, its tummy tickles galore!
The other three boys do not stand a chance, for the tickling ghoul strikes them all at once! He has twelve hands targeting his ticklee’s armpits and tummies. The three youngsters writhe about, squealing and roaring with tickle-induced hysterics. The other boy squeals in fright and tries to make a run for it, but the ghoul is too fast!
He grabs the other boy and pins him to his chair, with one arm wrapping around the youngster’s legs at his

People have always told me how kind I am to others, even if I don’t know them personally. They say I’m mature for my age and that they wish everyone they knew was like me. I smiled along with them, showing them that I agreed.
But as said… Those who smile the brightest are the ones who have suffered the most.
I have been broken, beat down, laughed at, bullied, and backstabbed more times than I can count. All those things happened to me when I was in elementary school.
Currently I go to a college prep high school, somewhere I feel safe. I’m lucky my school has no history of bullying, I’m blessed with that factor. But bullying always exists outside of school...
When I was 8, I watched my first video about suicide. I was dumbfounded with the idea at first. Being such an innocent soul, I wasn’t able to grasp the idea of why people would go to extremes of harming

Bullet Anne raced towards the kings house, howling for her husky friend.
"Nightshade! Nightshade!" She yapped.
Insanity36 said the following:
Nightshade had been lying down in her nest, watching the other dogs on her team scuffle together. She wasn't particularly invested, but it did bring a small smile to her lips.
Just then, the sound of a voice calling her name caused Nightshade's ears to twitch. Her head perked up and she padded over to the window, rearing onto her hind paws to look outside. Spotting her friend Bullet Anne out there, she slipped outside.
"What is it, darling?" she asked, jaws stretching in a yawn.
"I found where the wolf dog lives!" She barked, and put her paws on the window. "It's gonna be a bloodbath!" She cackled. "It'll send her running for the hills!"
Her lips twisted into a crooked smirk, glinting with delight. "Perfect, darling," she said, "let's go."

Kuii impatiently tapped his foot as he waited for his friend to get off of the airplane and meet him in their arranged place. Wearing a classic white button up shirt and a black, unzipped jacket, dark gray dress pants, and black dress shoes, he was sitting in one of the airport's many waiting or resting areas. Bringing his left hand up, he checked the time on his silver watch on his wrist, and let out an impatient sigh while running his other hand through his navy blue hair.
Letting his bangs drop and cover his left eye again, an odd square-ish curl sticking out, he leaned back in the cushioned seats he was sitting in.

It was my nineteenth birthday; the party was over; my parents were sleeping. I’d taken it on myself to start cleaning up when I heard Catalina. I smiled, setting down the big, black garbage bag and walking to my room. “Yeah? You d-” I froze in the doorway, my jaw hanging open.
Catalina looked so proud of herself. She was on my bed, stripped down to her underwear. She sat up straight, swaying as though she might fall over, her soft gut pouring over the front of her panties, hanging down, pudgy, pale and jiggling with every movement. She saw me staring, and smirked, “Like wha'chu see?” she motioned me closer, “Come closer.”
She didn’t need to ask twice. I climbed onto the bed, pulling her close, grabbing her love handles and relishing the feel of her silky-smooth skin giving way to the pressure

She really had no idea what was going on. There was so much that it was nauseating. So many cats. With everything happening at once, she didn't quite feel welcomed. There was a prickle of doubt that crept it's way up her spine. She kept glancing at Rai, her eyes scanning over her best friend as if it was the last time she would see her. Her breath rattled every time she exhaled. She wanted to join the Tribes, but she didn't want to leave Rai. She kept asking herself over and over why anyone would ever be willing to give up the best thing they had. It would never feel like home in Earth-Tribe if she had to try and live without Rai. If she had to go on, pretending like ever moment was great - when they would never be great if Rai was not around. She was not sure if she would be able to sleep at night if Rai's body was not right next to her's. Maybe she was being selfish, but watching the thing you loved most just walk away...it was foolish.

Leaving Jason to recover, Sky was walking down the cobblestone street by himself, his hands in his pockets. His thoughts were on what his friend had just told him so he really wasn't paying attention to where he was going.
He bumped into someone and almost knocked them over, but he was quick enough to catch them, "Uh, sorry about that."
"Hey, no worries, dude," the person replied, "You were distracted. Happens to everyone."
Sky blinked, hearing a familiar voice which, for some reason, sounded slightly darker. He seemed confused for a moment as he knew Jason was still in the hospital. He glanced up to look the person in the face, wanting to know who he had accidentally bumped into to get a better look at him.
It was a young man with light brown hair, fair complexion, blue eyes, and a friendly, almost smug smile. He wore a blue hoodie with the sleeves pushed up to the elbows with long, black sleeves underneath, a
Mystery of Pokerus Prevention-Part 1 (Pokemon TFs)It's been months since the initial outbreak of the Pokerus virus. However, it wasn't any normal case of Pokerus, this version was on that humans could contract, and worse; it was lethal. Despite all of this, no case has proven lethal. This is because the virus alters the DNA of the human, turning them into a Pokemon themselves, thus allowing them to live through the infection. The infected are contagious for one week, and must remain outside of a Pokeball in order to heal. After the infection, the transformed human would resemble any other Pokemon, with no trace of being human. Of course, the new Pokemon would usually have their old mind in tact. Many remained with their families, ran off into the wild with their old Pokemon, or found a trainer and joined their team.Mystery of Pokerus Prevention-Part 1 (Pokemon TFs)19 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

The thought of food made my mouth water. What if he poisoned the food? Can I actually trust him?
My hunger is more powerful than my brain at this point. I’m so hungry- he’s the only way I can get something to eat.

Maybe that's so.
My heart says you think my fear insults me;
You'd prune it away because I'm so beautiful inside.
Maybe that's so.
But it's so hard to get past this,
So difficult to be what I think you want me to be.
And maybe all I have to do is stop struggling, stop trying.
Maybe that's so.
But we're talking about letting my defenses down,
And I feel like I've never been good at that. -- Like, ever.
To just assume that everything will be alright - no, simpler than that,
To have no idea what "assuming" even is. To just know that things are okay.
And maybe that's so.
But how can I do that? How can I completely surrender?
Don't you know that to me, I'd be becoming willfully insane?
People coming, people being there for me? Madness, that's all it is.
And to be honest, I can remember that I was different in the past. I believed in others.

Open Space, Cêtarii Vessel Explorer
November 29, 2269
While the modified Cêtarii scout vessel was being constructed in the Explorer’s internal shipyard (a feat of engineering done primarily by computer-controlled industrial robots) the crew of Calypso were undergoing an extensive retraining programme to bring them up to speed with their new ship and its capabilities. The Cêtarii possessed a level of technology at least a century or two ahead of the Federation, from medicine to computers to starship engineering and warp drives. The Constitution class starship was the most advanced in Starfleet, but it was a shuttlecraft compared to Explorer.
The Cêtarii regarded their scout ships in much the same way Starfleet crews regarded their Class F shuttles: highly useful exploratory craft that were, at the end of the day, essentially expendable. Losing one for any reason was of course never desirable; but if nece

Gardenia was sitting on a bench nearest to the train. It was safe for now, it was nice. She rubbed her hands together, looking over at the nearest bush of flowers beginning to bud. It made her smile, probably one of the only times she's had during this month. Spring was coming, and hopefully a better time. She hoped, she prayed, things would get better. That she didn't have to be so scared anymore...that the others would be okay. Feeling a few tears, she was quick to wipe them away and give a loud sigh. The girl was barely recognizable at this point. She was wearing all black from the neck down as if she was at a funeral, her green hair was cut short into a pixie haircut, the length causing her to shiver from the cold now that the bundle wasn't there to protect her neck. Her headflower was closed in on itself along with it's leaves, but the bandage around one of the petals was still there and her leaves were in tatters, still growing back after their ordeal.

My vision was having trouble focusing as I searched for you within its coldness. I could hear your breathing but couldn’t figure out if it was near or far. I focused harder to notice any movements, but I knew you were smarter than that. Recalling my memories, there wasn’t much furniture with us. Residing in the master bedroom was a queen-sized bed, an old wardrobe, and an antique sewing machine you had inherited from your grandmother after she passed many years ago.
