"Mommy, can she stay longer? Pwease?" whined Aiden, tugging on my ear incessantly. His little sister, Meghan, decided to copy her brother, and began pulling on my other ear.
The things I do for these kids.
"No sweetie, the doggy has to go now, ok?" Mrs. Burke replied, gently prying her children's fingers from my poor ears. I licked her hands in appreciation. She smiled knowingly, and scratched my neck. "We'll see you in about twenty minutes?" she whispered.
Unfortunately, I thought. I nodded.
"Wonderful! Aiden, Meghan?" she said, returning her voice to a normal volume, "Go upstairs and get ready for bed! Ira will be over in twenty minutes!" Almost immediately, her kid's attention shifted from my d

my friend friday My friend Friday spends Tuesday afternoons looking for things that no one else can find. These things are small and blend with the everyday so suitably, that they elude most of us, even after our morning coffee or cigarette. But invariably Friday finds them with ease, and sets them upon my doorstep every Wednesday morning, pawing at my breakfast with his fresh wonders.my friend friday8 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
I saw a boy die yesterday! He howls, the door slamming behind him. He is not in the same room as I; he is yelling this across my house at 5:30am, eliciting angry grumbles from my somber roommates. Sending the saloons doors clacking and banging, he gushes into our kitchen and tosses a mangled G.I. Joe on the table in front of me. The boy was in the car in front of me. I was driving to work, laughing at NPR, as ya do, and there in front of me, a man was flying, this man! He grins, snatching the disable veteran off the table and waving it in front of me

of stars in motion
and pledging my undying devotion
to it's selfless notion
looking for a closure
to this raw exposure
things are ceasing to look faded
i think i almost made it
sun is up and the night is bright
i left behind my need to fight
i am coming to see
how anything can be

Un día común, sin mucho que decir, me levante con el alba y me puse a reflexionar lo que avía sido de mi vida hasta esta mañana en que me levanto, y pensé, que no avía echo nada de valor en mi vida, me di cuenta que vivía como un animal, sin darle un sentido a la vida, simplemente vivía para ver un nuevo sol un nuevo día, y recordé algo que me hizo pensar, retrocedí en el pasado del mundo y me tope con una clase de personas muy únicas, unas personas que lucharon y dieron sus vidas para que las personas que vivimos el presente tuviéramos el sol de una nueva mañana, me detuve un momento recordando a estos "HEROES" y me di cuenta que todos eran personas comunes y corrientes, pero se destacaron por sus acciones por su valor por querer compartir un mensaje al mundo, recordé viejos relatos de combate y me di cuenta que avía cientos héroes que jamás fueron recor

My tail a banner long,
My frame was wraught in twighlight,
My soul Poseidon's song;
My stride rolls like the ocean,
My heart beats fierce as fire,
My touch is like a potion,
My stride it is desire;
And would you place,
A tarnished hand,
Upon my sea-spray hide?
Then if you dare,
Then do so now,
Upon my back,
My thunder is eternal,
My song is bold and strong,
I'll take you to the edge of earth,
I'll fly the whole night long,
Give up your heart to my deep eyes,
I'll never say a word,
My silence is a golden one,
And only you have heard.

Imaginen ver una hoja en blanco o un lienzo de pintura sin haberse usado.
Ahora piensen que están parados ahí dentro y lo más que alcanza uno a hacer es voltear para cualquier lado sin ver más que el espacio vacío que les circunda. Ni siquiera pueden observar el propio contorno de ustedes, es como estar desnudos e invisibles a la intemperie.

Red DressThe store was not busy tonight.Red Dress7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Customers wandered in and out, solitary dancers to the muzak that floated down the aisles. Cady watched them with unfocused eyes - her job didn't take a lot of concentration.
"Good evening, ma'am, do you have Flybuys?" Hands moved automatically, packing groceries into plastic bags with unconscious precision. "That will be $11.90, thank you, have a good night. Good evening, sir, do you have Flybuys?"
Her eyes focussed with a snap - he hadn't handed over a card.
There weren't any groceries on the counter, either.
The man's face was unremarkable, the kind of face that had passed her a hundred times that night, forgotten before they reached the door. But, his eyes - they were remarkable, a golden brown that drank in the light and glinted hypnotically.
"Arcadia," He said, "Wake up."
"Good evening, sir, do you have Fly-" Cady's mouth gaped for a moment, and embarrassment burnt her cheeks. She was on the wrong side of the counter

Complete antidote to my last fiction, haha. This little bit of silly takes place long before the previous post when Kirkwall sat in the eye of the storm. Hawke and his companions enjoy the peace, unaware that - between them - it is they who will bring about its end.
Just a bit of stupid fun, but bitter sweet if you know what's to come ^_^
"Okay so - stop me if you've heard this one."
It's late, probably very late, in the Hanged Man. Cortland Hawke looks absently around the room, as if the time might just leap from the boarded walls and make itself known.
Heaving another draught from his tankard, the newly-dubbed 'Champion of Kirkwall' gives up any pretence of caring what time it is anyway and lets his head rest on his arms, his gaze moving toward the party's resident healer. Anders is holding court, having seemingly nominated himself as entertainer for the latter part of the evening in the absen

She was beautiful.
An elegant and sophisticated creature of poise and corruption.
Starry chandelier skies were her backdrop and at curtain call
Nobody knew what went on in her world.
Especially not me.
I really cant be blamed for wanting her and oh I
Wanted. Her. SO. Badly.
Youre asking me why then? Why did I do it?
You, sitting in your pristine office with white washed walls.
You, who have probably never experienced an emotion stronger
Than mild annoyance.
How could you ever possibly understand me?
Now youre staring at me like Im mad.
These feelings are simply beyond your knowledge,
Even with all your fancy degrees strung up like a hunters prized kills,
You will never understand THIS case.
Maybe youll feel something more than mild annoyance then,
Maybe youll even get FRUSTRATED.
You know, she wasnt scared of me. Not really. I know that
deep down, she had always wanted something whic

The staggering end is held in her eyes
And with it stretches a new beginning
Adorned in shadows and bloody kisses
The archway lights blink, Once, twice
As feather-fingers entwine with mine
Opaque, a sleek safeguard from the sun
Velveteen tresses murmur on my cheek
A ravens plumage and a spiders silk
Laced with the fragrance of an angel
Incongruous to a demon by design
She presses her wintry lips to my neck
And I nearly reach out to embrace her
My tongue flicks a nervous lick at sweat
An avid tattoo in my breast to remind me
Omnia mutantur nos et mutamur in illis
My fists clench as fear wreathes my veins
And I swallow a mouthful of raw anxiety
Desire's cohort beads between my thighs
As her lips whisper promises on my skin
But I am temporarily deaf to the divine
Will it hurt? I whisper, and she pauses
Her mouth hovering over my slick skin
She doesnt draw back to see my face
Uncertain, enticed, frightened, excited
As she laid a cool finger along

Hate"I hate you."Hate4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Klaus smirks, sucking more fumes from his cigarette. It floods his lungs, coating them in a thin layer of comfort, before exhaling. The calming chemicals linger, though, and that's what he's after.
"Love you too," he replies, sarcastic, obviously not thinking about what Ben is really saying; not thinking, or just not caring.
"I mean it," Ben says, voice heightening slightly from Klaus' nonchalance.
Klaus rolls his eyes and flicks his dying cig off the roof. He doesn't need to look to see the thin, glowing trail as it falls; it's a brief thing, and he doesn't care for those things any longer.
He leans back against the roof, lingering warmth of the tiles against his back. Ben is diagonal to him, on his left side, sitting huddled by one of the many chimneys. Klaus can just make out his figure, cloaked in his dark uniform; his hair, though, catches the moonlight, making it easier to distinguish.
"And why, pray tell me, do you hate me now?" Klaus drawls out, remnants of smoke

WomanhoodI was seventeen when I first understood what it was to be a woman. It wasn't the moment years before when I began my period. It hadn't been the instant in which a boy first touched his lips to mine when I was twelve. It wasn't when I put on my first prom dress, or the first time I wore heels. I knew that women had breasts, and men did not; men were taller, and stronger than women; women were fairer and meeker than men. That was the way things were, and always had been. I was born and raised to accept those facts, and that is exactly what I had done.Womanhood8 years ago in Open More Like This

When you give her the fave, she'll probably ask you for a watch.
When she's finished being a whiny bitch, she'll ask you if you know anybody cool. Then she'll want to look through your friends to see if there's anyone she can bitch at.
When she looks through your friends, she might notice that all your friends are awesome.
So she'll probably ask you for a feature.
When you've given her a feature, she'll want you to tell her how awesome she is.
She'll start posting single word comments on everything you upload.
She might get carried away and fave every fucking thing in your gallery.
She may even end up devwatching all your friends as well!
When she's on her period, she'll probably start crying on moaning on your page for no reason.
You'll have to put up with that shit, because if you block her, she'll make an alternate account in order to piss you off some more.
She'll seep into your cyberworld, make herself comfortable and pis
