Castles in the Air"Momma, w-what is the outside l-like?"
"M'hm! The outside!"
It's really cold. It hasn't started snowing yet, but it's almost the middle of November, it will soon. There were flurries the other day, but you and your sister were asleep and all I could do was stare out the window and wish we weren't stuck behind gray, gray fence, and solemn-faced guards who either

love torturing the people they're protecting.
I wish I could have woken you two up and showed you how pretty the flurries were: snow, caught up in the wind and making mesmerizing circle-like patterns before landing in a scattered heap on the cracked ground below, a thing not worthy for something so pure. I wish the snow would fall and melt and leave something beautiful behind. I wish the ground would absorb something other than the blood spilled by the people starving alongside us for being nothing but

Battle Royale - OneOver and over again, I sat back and watched countless fights in the house where we all lived. All but a few were minor, of course, so I never really worried; arguments were very common in the house. As horrible as it sounds, only one out of the many arguments ended in death.Battle Royale - One6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
But lets not recap that. Thats a completely different story.
After a while, it seemed as though the arguments finally started to die down, even to the point where we decided to try a vacation. Luckily for us, we were offered a once in a lifetime trip to a local island, just a few miles off the coast.
It didnt take us long to ponder the offer; we eagerly accepted.
Once in a lifetime trip.
They sure as hell werent lying.
It all started on a rainy evening. Everyone was exhausted from packing and the majority of the group was thankful to finally be able to relax now that they were on their way to the island.
Many of the houses residents were sitting in their seat

Once Upon a Vacation Part OneAs if her headache wasnt bad enough, the thick smell of cheap soap mixed with laundry detergent and the many noises around her was slowly transforming her headache into a full blown migraine.Once Upon a Vacation Part One6 years ago in Humor More Like This
Haruka had been trying for an hour, maybe more now to block out these annoyances and try to sleep, but Daniel and Hexs bickering from across the room prevented her from doing so. Sure she had the choice of going to her room upstairs, but she knew better; she knew that Chiaki would be there, just a few rooms down from her own listening to his annoying Japanese screamo.
With a loud sigh, Haruka rolled over to face the back of the couch and pulled a tattered pillow over her head, muffling all the irritating noises around her. Peace at last
As she dozed off, her thoughts drifted to Gigi, as they always did. Where was she now? What was she doing? And most importantly, was she ok
Her thought was interrupted and her daze was broken by a loud shriek coming from across the room wher

babygotback It was a dark and stormy night when the hot pink samurais attacked. All the senoritas cowered in fear as the pitiful senors fled the scene but I, RORRRRIM, stood my ground. As the samurais attacked, I blew them each away with my flowing raven hair for they were no match for me!

ToaR - PrologueHe had never seen the young man in person. No one that he had ever talked to in his two years living in Bethel had. He heard that you didn't want to meet him in person. To meet the man in person meant one of two things: 1.) you had miraculously been appointed a role in Cainan's master plan, or 2.) your life was about to come you an abrupt and rather gruesome halt. Unfortunately, ninety-nine percent of the time it was the latter.ToaR - Prologue5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He had heard of the cruel man's wife who as almost as disgusting as her crazed husband. Kean Marr was her name though most everyone referred to the snobby, selfish woman as Lady Kean, used in only the most sarcastic way possible. She was known to laugh at the many people that lived in Belral, the poorer yet most populated area of Bethel, taunt them for what they didn't have. As if it was their fault that they had nothing. While extremely degrading, an encounter with Kean was much better than one with General Marr. At least with Kean, you were spar
Theory of a Revolution - 2"...commit his ashes to their resting place, earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

A young male by the name of Shilo Miller hovered above a wide crater near the center of a large area known as the funeral grounds. This was a section of Bethel located in between Lael and Belral and one of the first places people noticed when on their way to Belral. It constantly reeked of burning flesh, rotting corpses, or a stomach-churning combination of the two nauseating stenches.
Shilo, the youngest of the seven "gravekeepers" working there, had grown used to this after being employed there for three of his five years in Bethel. Everyday he saw the same depressing thing: deceased men, women, and children being brought to the funeral grounds by the family that loved them in hopes that their loved one would finally have a suitable resting place amongst others passed.

Just like the Berlin wall, just like that stupid old rhyme Humpty Dumpty, just like, yes, the American economy, everything around me started falling apart. Everything I had gotten so used to: the constant arguments, the frequent visitors, the new residents, the people already living there everything. Everyone.
But, God, why, why didnt we try to stop this? We could have completely changed the future, had a happily ever after. Why didnt we try to hold this all up? Why didnt we try to tape it back together, resew the torn seams, repair the complex puzzle that was the house? The answer was simple; no one knew how to. And even if they did, no one could.
Although I constantly reminded myself that it, the basic collapse of the house, was going to happen eventually and that I

"Oh, well, that's kinda why m'calling."
"...what is it?"
"We don't know where Hex is."
Three days earlier...
Matt (or Hex as everyone used to call him) sat on the living room recliner, his feet propped up on the coffee table in front of him. He held a huge stack of money, counting them over and over again almost nervously.
"Six-hundred eighty...seven-hundred," he exhaled loudly and shoved the stack of money back in the side pocket of the bag he had held it in. "Seven-hundred dollars, Kean. You think that's enough?" He reached for the stack of money again, but before he could a brunette snatched the bag from him, frowning.
"For the fiftieth time, yes. That's plenty as long as you don't blow it all on the first casino," she tossed the bag back at him and sat on the loveseat.

Imaginary Waltz - OneIts not even time to wake up, and I find myself laying wide awake, staring at the ceiling above me and watching as the fan moves in slow, almost mesmerizing circles. Im not tired, at least, I dont feel as though I am, but something in the back of my mind is telling me, pleading me to go back to sleep. Telling me that Im not supposed to be here, not supposed to see this and that oh God, oh God what am I going to do?Imaginary Waltz - One6 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I groan and reach for a pillow as the voice inside my head grows louder and louder and talks more and more and more until I realize something.
Who is I? What a stupid question. I is me.
Yet my surroundings beg to differ.
