hello my true love
whenever you decide to show up
ill be here
somewhere between reality and fiction I will be
living my life
I may not be be perfect
but my flaws are what make me beautiful
I might not look like a model to you
but I won't need to
I may not be strong all the time
but my weakness make me real
I may not always be kind
but remember I'm trying to help you
My thoughts might not always be clear
but when I do decide I will mean it
My life will not be simple sometimes
and try your best
you don't have to punch the person making me cry
just wipe away my tears
hold me close
kiss me tenderly
and watch as the storms roll past
You don't have to be perfect either
but in my eyes you will be very close
I don't care what you look like
or how you cut your hair
You don't have to wear bulky armor
I cant hug you with all that
You don't have to ride a white horse
I don't care what you ride
as long as i can ride with you
I don't care if your sad sometimes

Minor Character Sheet-OC MemeThe Minor Character Sheet: a writing aid for all fiction creators, from fantasy authors to comic writers. A helpful guideline tool for anyone who wants to create well-rounded, plot hole-free castsMinor Character Sheet-OC Meme6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
This is the minor character sheet, full of things that might be useful to know about minor cast members. There is another, much longer sheet for main characters. These are all geared toward protagonists, but can be applied to villains too.
Text in [brackets] is just for clarification of how to answer the preceding question. Also, since I hate writing "him or her" and I will not write "they" when the subject is singular, I am assuming masculinity in my clarifications. You'll erase them when you fill it out anyway, so the sheet works for either gender.

Dystopia Only 23 years from Then, and life is completely different. Today, human characteristics are highly sought, collected and sold like antiques at an auction. The number of Wildstock- those of us unlucky enough not to be genetically engineered- is dwindling. With the onset of cloning and affordable genetic engineering, few people see a benefit in natural selection. Unfortunately, due to the inherent risks of genetic homogeny, Wildstock have become an invaluable resource in the Empire. We are sought out and captured by bounty hunters, ripped from all we have ever known, and taken to the infamous Empire Markets. The lucky ones among us are sold to collectors, who value our raw emotions and unique genetics. The less fortunate are sold to medical facilities, used for the repair of aging Seamless.Dystopia5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

This is an incredibly thorough questionnaire for your major characters. There's a reason I call it a "Dissection." I've already posted the minor character sheet for all those people you don't need to know the favorite foods and alcohol tolerances of. These are all geared toward protagonists, but can be applied to villains too.
Text in [brackets] is just for clarification of how to answer the preceding question. I will warn you that some of these explanations are exceedingly long: the ones regarding the Myers-Briggs personality type, and the one about love languages.

The Truth About Selling FanartUpdate notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources. Unlike my first draft, I have also changed my viewpoint to neutral throughout this writing.The Truth About Selling Fanart4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Something heavy has hit the ground. The noise woke you. You were always woken by your housemates.
5 hyperactive guys weren't the best choice to live with.
"Which of the monsters are you?" you called out the room.
Your door opened slowly. It's been Key.
"Gosh! Kibum, what are you doing so early in the morning?" He smiled apologetic, moving to sit next to you.
You got up to look him in the eyes.
"I'm really really sorry. I just wanted to get the loudspeaker back into the dancing room."
"And that couldn't have waited 'cause?"
"Onew-Hyung wants us to train our new choreography."
"OK, I'll talk to him later."
"Am I forgiven?" The guy crooked his head.
"Of course you are. No worries." You gave him a peck on the cheek.
His features lightened up. He practically jumped out the room happily. He was really cute you thought to yourself.
Since you were awake already you supposed you could get up as well. The guys wouldn't be quiet enough anyway.

Mind the BubblesHer target had been a major politician running on a platform of oppression under the guise of family values. He had been slated to step up to the big leagues and run for the top office but she was sent to stop him. She found him at the party and quietly slipped into the group he was schmoozing. He was ever the charmer. Witty, self-assured, flattering. He made sure to say all the right things, especially when he could be more liberal in what he said at gatherings like this. And like men of his ilk, he thought himself untouchable. He was not. She would teach him this tonight. His one, final lesson before death. He drank champagne, like the others.Mind the Bubbles2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

SpringtimeIt is winter on my breastbone,Springtime6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Across my nose,
Down my arms,
Snowbanks of pale skin
At my shoulders, elbows, knees.
But a sudden spring emerges on my hipbone,
A rioting vibrant mass
Brought on not by the warming of the weather,
Or a gentle rain,
But by a forceful collision with a table.
This bloom will wither soon,
Just like the real daffodils and irises.
The colors will fade,
And my skin will return to the tundra.
"The Wagon" The world had ended."The Wagon"6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Or at least, the world as it had been known. Skyscrapers stood like skeletons, some of them crumbling into the streets and highways below. In some of the skeletons were droves of smaller skeletons. People.
The big war had finally come but not like everyone had expected. It wasn't a nuclear apocalypse like so many had thought. It was bombs and napalm and guns. Despite the fact that the fighting started, the fear of nuclear war was still great, even in the minds of vicious dictators and extremists. The bombs of fire had reigned instead of the bombs of atoms. The destruction was no less though and the causalities were apparent.
Offices filled with burnt remains. Bodies, copiers, computers, desks, vending machines.

You love to see him smile
You wish one day he might be yours
If only for a while
You wish that you could tell him
To have the strength to say,
"I love you and I wish that you
Could feel the same one day!"
Your heart beats as he comes towards you
Only to walk on by
You try to tell yourself you don't love him
Try to believe your lie…
You wish, you dream, you hope, you pray
That you could be together
Maybe if you could make him see
That you two could last forever.....

a cool plastic rim to her lips
and pulls fire down her throat.
With insides tingling, she lets

and shes crying now
dreaming of unicorns
and rainbow smiles in the sky.
she longs for those
childhood days, and childhood dreams

She wants to believe once more
in shimmering magic, and goodness.
She wants to squish paint in her

Sweaty, drunken fingers dragging
