Once Lavender found a self-help book. It had no cover and the front pages had been ripped out. It was one of those books you buy to help your self esteem during depression. So, Lavender named the book to make up for its lack of title. She named it Micheala.
Whenever Lavender was sad, she would open the book and read a new page. Because the pages she'd already read before didn't help her much because she already read them and her mind had found a way to discredit them enough so that they couldn't stop the pain inside of her. Each new page was full of some new advice that helped Lavender to cope. New advice that her troubled mind couldn't brush off right away because they were so new and inspiring.
There could only be so many pages in one book.
One day Lavender reached the end of the book and...
She decided she didn't want to read it, because that would solidify that it was really over.
But she was almost offended yo

There was a clock; it was ticking, and then the shadow was getting bigger, only to shrink when I stopped looking into the shadow specifically.
There was a clock, it was ticking, and my head was tilted a little off to the left than normal; this time, the wood grew bigger, until I turned back and it shrunk.
There was a clock, it was silent; my ears were hearing music from my headphones over the ticking.
There was a wall, and there was a ticking, but when I looked over my bed onto the ground, there was a clock.
There was a clock, a ticking, and nothing but darkness surrounding it, then I removed my hand from my eye in attempt to make it a telescope.
There was a wall; nothing was ever there before.
There was a wall with a hook on it; a clock use to be there, and sometimes I thought of the ticking.

LOTRO: Death of AgawaerIn the ring of Isengard, Agawaer held one hand to the side of his cracked and dented breastplate. He was so splattered with Orc-blood that he looked as if he’d painted himself black, and his once-might blade, Angroval, had been bent and chipped to the point of uselessness. Heaving, wheezing, dripping sweat and gore, he bent down and curled shaky fingers around the sword of a fallen Uruk-Hai.LOTRO: Death of Agawaer4 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
He had come to Isengard a prisoner.
It seemed ages ago that he had ridden south to Dunland with the Dunedain rangers of the Grey Company, his brothers in arms, staunch warriors all. Now…Agawaer squeezed his eyes shut, pushing the memory of that black night away.
They had journeyed far, all of them, fighting battles and making allies all the way, and in the end it had been due to their efforts that the Free Peoples had found allies among Dunlendings. The Dunland clans were warring among themselves even now, as Sarumen pitted those who had pledged fealty to him against the few who did not

I watch the sky with teary eyes,
blood pools around me,
My wings and honour gone.
My chest is empty, my heart stopped.
my love, thoughts, dreams stolen,
the barbarity of my conscience clinging to false hope...
What point was there to my existence?
a genetic blunder perhaps...
or was it to bear the burden of those before,
or to suffer from the coldness of humanity?
BloodWhen there is civilization, there are epidemics. The year is XXXX and a brand new epidemic has broken out. A new pathogen, dubbed Blutungen Tod, or simply BT for short. Discovered by a German pathologist, the term translates into “Bleeding Death” and it circulates through the body and destroys the blood cells, leaving the body to die out from Oxygen deprivation. Nobody is certain where Blutungen Tod originated, they just know that appeared one of the blue one night and very rapidly evolved into an epidemic. It seemed Earth’s population was going to die out completely, but the world’s governments came together and created a cure, or at least a method of containing it. The solution came in the forme of a new synthetic blood, simply known as “New Blood”. Buildings were put up in every town, several in cities, where the residents go in weekly, are hooked up to a transfusion machine, and the New Blood is fed intoBlood5 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Lita didn’t stop her rapid pace until the two of them had reached their suite. The door seemed to sense her furious mood and wisely accepted her keycard on the first try. Baqir was barely in the room before Lita slammed the door shut, almost catching part of his coat.
His blood red coat. It had always been blood red. But now it had actual blood in it. Rorie's blood.

“I didn’t kill him,” Baqir said in an even tone, folding his arms over his chest.

“More so than Tsuki?” he retorted. Lita said nothing, trying to calm herself, doing her best to sort through what she was feeling and put it into words. Baqir continued on before she was able to do that though.

Her mother had been called to the bedside of her eldest sister who had fallen ill and shipped Hannah to the North to stay with family. It had been a lifetime since Hannah had last seen her cousin, Madison. Once the two girls had been inseparable, practically sisters. They were rarely apart growing up, constantly getting into trouble by engaging in activities that were less than ladylike.
As the years rolled on the girls drifted apart and soon distance wasn’t the only factor that separated them. Hannah was still a bit of a tomboy, preferring to spend her days in the stables or paddock with her horses instead of participating in her lessons or attending stuffy parties with her parents. Madison on the other hand was the exact opp

No, it wasn’t that Vash was a difficult person to shop for – well, he was if you didn’t know him well, but that was not a category Roderich fell under. He’d known Vash his entire life and he always knew of little ways to make the other happy, even if it resulted in flustered embarrassment and ridiculous bucket punching.

Newcomer Awe (Riddler x Two-Face)Harvey “Two Face” Dent had no idea what to think of the strange red haired and green clad man who had become his own personal stalker and fanboy. He had a name of course, the Riddler, but he was a relative newcomer who had yet to prove his worth in Harvey’s eyes even though he had left the Bat with several broke bones. His actual name was Edward Nygma, a former ex-employee of WayneTech who had become a criminal after one of his inventions was deemed dangerous and he was fired. Angered, the man donned the persona the Riddler and went on a murder spree of all his old supervisors, soon enough drawing the Bat’s attention as the male was eager to show his intellectual prowess. In the end Batman took the other male down and escorted him to Arkham Asylum in handcuffs, the red-head out cold from a pretty nasty blow to the head. Naturally no one quite knew what to think, so everyone kind of avoided the male as he got himself acquainted with Asylum life, making a name forNewcomer Awe (Riddler x Two-Face)9 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Since his parents divorced he hardly could smile. He was used to joke and cheer up everyone, but now it had been one week since he changed. Overall change.
I had the chance to visit him then. With my bros, Reno and Takechiyo, we went there. Takechiyo is a Japanese, he studied in my school as an exchange student and we went along really well.

When he came out he let us in. We sat down on the heavily rich guest room and was presented with drinks and snacks. Just by entering this room I could hardly guess his previo
