Erin and the Music BoxThe sweat rolled down her brow as she stretched her leg out. She slowly leaned forward, careful to keep her back straight as she kept herself level with her outstretched leg. She rocked a little on her ankle as she counted in her head. Five counts, she quickly pulled her leg in and leapt few feet in front of her. Her foot slid a little as it touched the hardwood floor. She winced a little, leaning over as she returned to her previous position, struggling through the routine.Erin and the Music Box7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Erin nodded, looking down. She had been a dancer in some form for most of her life. She had been listening to music seemingly from conception.

The doll shopSarah walked through the old streets of the town, looking through the decrepit storefronts. She passed an old bookstore, an abandoned store, and was about to give up and go back to the more populated shopping area, when she spotted a small shop tucked away in a corner, just close enough to attract customers, but far away enough to guarantee that it would remain a small business.The doll shop3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She walked up to the window, and curiously couldn't find any mention of a name, but what she could see, were rows of small, intricately detailed porcelain dolls. She bent down to examine them closely, and was amazed by how lifelike they were, the stitching on their elaborate dresses just as minutely detailed as the real thing. The store having piqued her curiosity, Sarah decided to go inside.
Sarah Young was a nineteen year old university student away from home studying her art degree, and had gone into the shopping centre to find a present for her sister back home, but hadn't found anything that satisfied her

Now there's discomfort over milkshakes at the café down the road. You catch her eye but look away in an instant. You pretend to forget about the days of misplaced affection and painted nails, telling a story (of a beauty with hair brushed over her shoulder) in the reflections of the window.
She tosses pebbles at the ground in the hopes of making a spark. She's searching her mind for words synonymous with you, and all she ever comes up with is everything.
DeathAsAWomanOnTheUndergroundI saw death as a woman on the UndergroundDeathAsAWomanOnTheUnderground5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
With a smile sweet as sin on her lips
And looks dressed up as though she could kill
From her angelic face down to her hips
She fixed me a look in the eye as if to say
That life is short so enjoy the ride
And when you come to the end of the day
Make sure you're as happy as when you have died
In that moment I knew this was all a joke
And our existence is flawed and with holes
But when I next looked she was gone in the smoke
Replaced by those yellowing pock-riddled poles
An old woman sat there, with a look so bewildered
She realized that her time was long spent
Her diamond-encrusted tiaras and life so gilded
Were signs of where the wasted hours went
I smiled knowingly at this poor lady's fortune
And admired my hopefully long years to come
For though life's music may seem in such poor tune
It all comes to harmony when your song is done

Most people would kill to get a taste of the celeb life. The money, the fame, not working in a „real job“, what was not to like?
Well, it was stressful. Paparazzi everywhere, always having to look perfect being recognized everywhere. Many stars were doing drugs because of that, with often devastating results.
Katy Perry though, was not going to become a junky. Her life had become too much for her, but in this day and age, there were other possibilities. After talking with her agent and a group of scientist as well as an upstart company called “TwinCo” she was in the studio once more to record a TV ad.

But his looks were probably his biggest advantage. Being the tall and muscled stud he was, he didn't even have to try to get girls to like him. His short, blonde hair accentuated his masculine face very well.
While his weeks were spent mostly with training and studying, the weekends were -most of the time- one big party for him. He loved getting drunk and dancing, so parties were the perfect combination for him. This weekend though, he had no one to party with, since he usually went clubbing or to house parties with his friends from the football team. They were on a trip though and Chris would be with them if he hadn't forgotten to pay the fee or even handed in the paperwork.

Daenerys, played by Emilia Clarke, was Sebs favorite character on the show. At first he sympathised with her because she was in such a tough situation and her ambition to regain her family's kingdom. But as the show went on, she turned away from that goal even more and acted like a little, spoiled brat. To Seb it felt like the character he loved and made him enjoy Game of Thrones turned into one of the worst and boring characters of the show.
