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.

Kyoya Ootori x Male!Reader
An alarm was not a welcoming sound, as Kyoya had mentally noted down as he was forcefully dragged from a dimension of sweet dreams. He heard shuffling beside him, and a pressure was removed from his chest as that infernal beeping continued its dreadful tune. Cracking open his eyes with a somewhat pained expression, he glared at the man whom was sat on the edge of the bed, tiredly reaching for his phone so that he could turn off that alarm.
"You get back in this bed, right this instant."
Kyoya was not a morning person. Everybody knew that. [Male Name] knew it most of all, as he had to be around Kyoya every single morning. As he spoke to his boyfriend in a harsh, commanding tone, he only seemed to receive a tired laugh in response.
"I can't. I have work, dumbass."

It was 9 in the morning and most of the house was quiet as Holly slowly made her way to the kitchen. Her double chin bulged out as she yawned.
As she got closer to the kitchen she started to smell delicious cooking aromas. Her mouth began to water and her big bulging thighs began to waddle just a little faster. When she opened the door to the kitchen she was greeted by the sight of her grandmother working hard over at the stove. She looked over her shoulder at Holly and smiled.
“Oh, good morning sweetie, hey isn’t that the robe I got you for your birthday?” Grandma Andrews said.
“Yeah, two years ago. I love this robe.” Holly said. The enormous girl was wearing a very large pink robe. In fact she was only wearing her robe. As it struggled to fit over her girth it revealed plenty of her flabby pale chest and belly. The robe managed to keep her decent, but it bar

“Crap! My soaker is jammed!” Tim Cameron lamented as he tried to clear an oatmeal jam in an old Super Soaker CPS 2500 that he had since childhood. “I told you that using the Nickelodeon slime recipe was a bad idea, Scott.” A quick look inside of the loading tank confirmed the worst fear: the oatmeal component of the orange ‘slime’ had settled in. “If we start now, then we MIGHT be able to have these tanks cleared before the actual game comes out.”
Scott Cousteau, no relations to the French oceanographer, shook his CPS Splashzooka in similar frustration. “The chemistry for this mixture is completely sound.” Scott, a major in chemistry, didn’t want to admit that a small miscalculation on his part took an already absurd plan and made it even worse. “Give me a few minutes to fiddle with the dilution of the ink.” Tim tossed over his super soaker quite aggressively. “Look, I know that we’re already runn

Story 1 of the MagnusMagneto Mashup 1
Today after school I went over to Violet’s house. My relationship with Violet was easily the most complicated of all my friendships. I couldn’t tell if she hated me, loved me or merely viewed me as a form of amusement. We met back in middle school, and remained on and off friends to this day - our junior year of high school. She was a fairly attractive girl with a naturally slim and curvy build. Despite attending public school, she hailed from a very well-off family; Her mother and father were both highly lauded research scientists. As a result, they often neglected to spend much time with their daughter, leading her to seek attention from other sources. Fortunately for her, Violet had inherited a great deal of her parent’s natural inclination towards intelligence. She was a very bright girl and despite possessing a nice body found fulfillme

There is a sun somewhereI remember the first day the fog came. It rolled in over the ocean and hunkered down over our little town, settling like a stray. When I woke up and opened the curtains, it was like seeing snow. There was just a sea of grey, the houses across the road dissolving like cigarette ash up into the clouds.There is a sun somewhere3 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I couldn’t stop running that day, feeling like an intrepid explorer set free in uncharted jungle territory. The walk to school was an adventure, navigating through parks a challenge, finding my peers in the playground at break a nightmare. We revelled in this new world, and James Morgan invented a game called ‘disappear.’ We would send one of our party out into the stark grey wilderness until we couldn’t see a trace of their silhouette. We played all of lunch time, and when it was my turn I took giant strides out, a boat leaving safe bays into treacherous wide oceans. My strides went from bounds to steps to tentative shuffling, hearing my friends calling out t

I found her naked, flecks of sand covering her skin like a heavy blanket. Her hair was twisted up in a haphazard braid, tangled strands hanging in chunks from her face. She was not beautiful. Actually, she was beautiful in a sort of tragic way.
It didn’t seem as if she sat by the rocks. It was as if she had decided to stay and the rocks arranged themselves around her. She sat with her knees pulled up to her chest, arms wrapped around herself as if she could magically become smaller and smaller.
When I stretched my hand toward her and asked her name, she laughed. Her hand was cold in mind as I helped her from her resting place. She didn’t care to wipe the sand from her body.
Then, she thanked me and started toward a trail off the nearby highway, and I never got her name.
It wasn’t romantic. I wasn’t a sailor who found his creature of the sea or anything. I was an artist who painted
The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone - ReviewThe Lost Treasure of Griffonstone - Review3 days ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
As usual with my reviews, it will contain spoilers. Those of you who have not seen the episode yet, you have been warned.
The basic premise of this episode is that Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie are sent, by way of the magic map, to the city of Griffonstone. However, the two soon become at odds with one another as to what their mission actually is.
The first thing I'd like to note about this episode is that it’s the first time since the season premiere that we have the story thread of the magic map, or even have it mentioned at all. I like that we still have episodic adventures like we've been having the last month or so, but I would have assumed that such a big element of the season would be getting more attention that it has. Still, it's nice that we get another story featuring it, and what strikes me as interesting is that we have only two of the main six participating in this mission. When it was first introduced, I'd assumed that it would be sending all six of them to various m

A ‘DREADFUL AMY’ STORY

written by Sanders2192
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:

Amy drew an arrow pointing downward, underneath the lettering so that the sign would direct the reader to the part of the unfortunate victim’s anatomy that was to receive th

The truck bounced as it drove through a particularly deep pothole. Skye bounced with it, and let out a loud ‘Huff’ as she was pulled back to earth by her seat belt. Simmons, she noticed, had bounced upwards too, although she was clutching her equipment for dear life and was hence affected to a lesser extent. She looked around, slightly disorientated and noticed that May, her mentor for the past few weeks, had barely moved an inch despite her driving the truck, retaining the look of cool indifference that almost defined her.
“Mind telling us exactly why we’re out here?” she said to the view-screen in front of her, displaying the visage of Phil Coulson, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D… or what remained of it.
Coulson smiled slightly, then abruptly switched into an official tone “We’ve detected energy levels corresponding to the signature of an alien artifact inside the temple, and since we have absolutely no idea what that does, we need to c

Heavy rain hit Adrian in the back of the head, the rain seemed to be thicker and thicker and was being unbearably painful to continue to drive through. With the hail like rain hitting Adrian from the front it wasn't long until he simply gave up trying to get home on his bike, and just as Adrian was preparing to get off the bike, his bike hit a large rock, propelling Adrian forward and sending him flying through the mud and leaving his bike stuck in the mud. Adrian slowly raised himself out of the mud, trying to wipe off most of it from his shirt and pants. He squinted as he looked forward in the pouring rain, there was a building in a distance, close enough for him to make out what it was.

“Toad? Toad! Get your lazy butt up here!”
Toad sighed. He’d just cut himself a slice of blueberry pie. Surely, Mistress Purrfection could wait a couple minutes while he enjoyed his mid-afternoon snack.
Toad pushed the plate away for another time. Toad looked very much like a toad as he hopped up the stairs, with his long, spindly legs, short, squat torso, and eyes so very far up his head. Completing the effect was Toad’s green skin, the result of having once fallen into a vat of chemicals.
“Other people end up with superpowers,” he complained under his breath. “Not me. I turned green. It’s so unfair.”

There were a few minutes left in the school day, and the students were anxious to leave for the day. Jason sat in his math class, bored out of his mind. He watched the clock for what seemed like hours, watching as the minute hand shifted an inch closer to the 12. Only ten minutes left of class remaind, but they seemed more like years. What didn't help was the fact that Jason was starving. He had to skip breakfast to keep from being late, and the school lunches were always the same thing: soggy pizza and bland vegetables. He never got school lunches, so he always had to eat a big breakfast. This time however, he wasn't so lucky. He rested against the back of the chair and rubbed his grumbling gut. It seemed with every growl his stomach made, the clock got slower. Luckily for him, the bell rung, and everyone filed out of their rooms.
A few moments later, Jason closed his locker after getting his backpack. His hunger seemed to have increased, and it was killing him. "Ugh." He said to hims

When the darkness cleared, Link was lying on the ground, dead. Standing over him was a man wearing a black karate Gi and wooden sandals. His hair was blood red, his arms bulged with muscles, and his pupil-less eyes were filled with rage.
Lakeside Lunch (M/F Vore)It was a quiet, warm summer afternoon on the lakebed, and all was going well for Susan. The fit, bespectacled brunette sat in a rowboat, whistling a happy tune as she sat with a rod in hand, hoping that she'd be able to catch some delicious fish for her lunch. Unfortunately, it had been several hours since she came out to the lakebed, and luck just wasn't on her side as she hadn't had a single bite yet. While the meek, gentle secretary wasn't prone to losing her cool, she couldn't help but feel more and more discouraged as the hours ticked by, and the sun rose higher into the sky.Lakeside Lunch (M/F Vore)3 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
