That the world can be a better place.
I'll dare to dream.
I'll dream ,
That things will change.
I'll dare to dream.
I'll dream of peaceful times,
Where people are nice,
Where everyone can speak freely,
Where everyone is loved.

I'll dream that people change,
Where there is no more heartbreak,
Where people feel remorse,
Where people try to repent.

I'll dream that people are safe,
Where there is no more crime,
Where no one commits murder,
Where people can walk the streets at night.
I'll dare to dream.
I'll dream that everyone is equal,
Where there are no more hierarchies,
Where there are no more monarchies,
Where there are no more dictators.
I'll dare to dream.
I'll dream and dream,
And that's all they will ever be.
They will stay dreams,
Because they are not actions.
While dreams start things,
Actions are what change things.
But for now,
I'll just dare to dream.
I'll dare to dream,
Because for now,

How Dost Thou Kill?
I kill by feeding and existing,
I kill by living my cursed life.
I prowl the alleys at midnight
To search for prime prey
A pretty, youthful harlot,
A buff, young, athletic boy
Just a few of the entrees
Spread across the city's buffet.
When I find what I search for
I follow them till they drip
With fear and paranoia
I let them hear the rhythm of
My footsteps on cold cement
The sound slowly bends them
And steers them to insanity.
Then I go in for the kill.
Cornering them, I bow my head
So reverently into their necks
Sweetly scented supple flesh pops
Under the tips of my teeth
Hot red life flows over my lips
And catches on my dead tongue
It renews my strength as it
Gushes down my waiting throat.
I lick my lips free and clean
Of the glistening ruby remains
That were my nightly feast.
I abandon the body and turn
To walk down an ad

she is the little barrette i never wore and the pink backpack i never owned. she breathes daisies instead of thorn bushes and always remembers to find the patch of untouched skin in the space between my shoulder blades. she makes me think of butterflies and babies and yellow. yellow because it's the smell and shade of sunshine and it's warm like she makes me feel. it's not the boiling in my low belly like he creates but it's butter in my chest. my ribs are well-oiled and my heart is a slick machine that beats a messy metronome.
she's the little girl i would expect to be skipping in some watered down garden singing songs with nonsense words in them and fairytale endings. except i would never expect that out of someone who is full of broken things, like her. but i expect this impossibility anyway, because i witness it daily.

Letting her thoughts fade out, the young woman looked around at the chilly, white landscape and shivered. It was Mid-winter, and the weather had been particularly horrible this year. The ground off the sidewalk somehow consisted of snow, slush, and ice in varying places, due to the bipolar leaps in the temperature over the weekend.

Praising it would never break,
Now all you see are crumbled stones
Where all past strength today seems fake.
Once our dream of glory had come true,
When this place was filled with life,
The streets were full of laughter
And the houses full of golden light.
Now where formerly we lived and loved
Time has faded all our traces,
And the earth reclaimed what once we took,
While humankind forgot our faces.
But look carefully, search with all your heart,
And you might find a trace of past:
A shard of metal, a piece of stone,
The ruin of a home that lasts.
And faded memory will be remembered,
The forgotten tale retold,
As our city's ruins are uncovered,
And our stories you unfold.
And again out works will matter,
As you marvel at our skill,
And through your books we'll live forever,
As years from now we'll be remembered still.

A man was sitting in an open-roof horse-drawn carriage, flipping through pages of a book. He was dressed somewhat casually, with a black vest, white shirt and brown pants, all looking somewhat renaissance-era. His age was around twenty-five years, and boredom was quite visible in his demeanor. Closing the book, he started to think to himself. After a while, the driver, noticing his passenger's behavior, proceed to engage in idle chat.
"So, what takes you on such a trip to the grand city of Karostat? I know many have their reasons, but what are yours?"
Noticing that he was being spoken to, the man turned his head back up, and replied.
"I've never traveled much. Seemed like an interesting place to go. As an added bonus, I'm pursuing archeology, and I've heard that the city has some... history."

Summary: Post-Waters of Mars, pre-End of Time. The Doctor goes back to see a past Master in his weakness after WoM and finds comfort.
The Doctor knew what he was doing was strictly forbidden but... he was desperate. He was BEYOND desperate; he'd left desperate back on Mars. He was now bordering on deranged, he realized, but as he had oh so emphatically reminded himself, he was the only one left now...
He swallowed, yes, that's right, he was the only one left now. All alone. For the first time in his whole long life, he was really, truly all by himself because the one person who was NEVER really gone, who ALWAYS came back... was dead.
He let himself wallow in that for a minute: the dead silence around him of all those absent voices and that one

The Dragoness's TollA lone traveler by the name of Edgar made his way down a long and winding road. He paused as his eyes fell on a long, stone structure in the distance. He burrowed through his deep cloak pockets to retrieve an old and worn map. He traced his finger along the wrinkled page until he located the blue, winding line that represented the river he was approaching now. He traced the river until he found the gray mark that represented the bridge. He had traveled great distances, and the bridge was the first landmark that signified the end of his journey.The Dragoness's Toll4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

And it made for a very dysfunctional and altogether unnecessary project as a whole. Timothy was well aware that, like every inch of his sketchpad before it, every inch that remained would hold a single and unwavering pattern: the hatched lines that marked an unbroken forest.
And yet the Lord of Stonebridge had been insistent on the map’s creation. He declared he was “blind outside of the walls” more than once as he was making the commission – almost as if he was expecting some sort of attack. And his suspicion and insistence coalesced not only into a long-term project on Timothy’s behalf, but also one that was to be drawn out across the earliest and coldest months of the year.
But while the job wasn’t necessarily ideal, it was also necessary. Timothy had spent his childhood under the tutelage of a local scribe, h

Why was this homework so boring? You thought, burying your head in your hands.
“What’s wrong?” There was a voice behind you. It was Ness, your best friend.
Ness was a dragon. She had been close friends with you since childhood, and, like many other dragons in this day and age, was shy, observant and curious around humans. The world hadn’t changed much when dragons had appeared on the Earth. It wasn’t long before they were just accepted as a part of everyday life. Soon they were pretty much considered equal to humans. They took our jobs, maintained families and did what humans did. Houses were built to accommodate the larger creatures we now lived so close too. Ness, however, was different. She had been your friend since she was hatched and you were born. You both attended the same school, lived on the same street and spent plenty of time together; all that normal teenage s

Not that he was outside purely for lawn care; he was keeping an eye on Elerus, allowing the child to explore and play in his new surroundings.

John's relationship with his sister was often strained at best, Sherlock had deduced this was due to her drinking, which yes, did bother him because there was already one alcoholic in the family, and they didn't need another, but it was more due to the fact that Harry was allowed to live her life without pretence, and she'd completely botched it up even with the freedom she'd allowed.
Harry decided she was attracted to girls around age 14, when John had been 11 and had not yet discovered the joys of sexuality and awkward flirting, still at the stage where being mean to the girl you liked was the way to go. He didn't quite understand why his mum was so unhappy to see her daughter closely hugging a girl outside of the house, standing awkwardly in the doorway as he watched his mother glare at the intimate couple who were standing just outside the gate of their terraced house.

Busty Beat: The Dragon of Bangor-Harper Island
by Xenny Diemes
Bangor-Harper Island is a relatively large island inhabited by three towns: Harper Island, Vaulden and Galilei. The combined population somewhat under 15,000 it gets its imports from the mainland while having developing a self-sustaining environment from farming and as a fishing and as a half-way point for international exports coming into the mainland. That often leads to a onslaught of small crimes that brew in the ports of Harper Island, the largest of the three and that calls for the mayor to expand the police force. There are a few able-bodied officers that participated but out of the five hundred cadets who jumped in on becoming part of the force, only a abysmal third of them actually make it.
There is one thing that I forgot to mention about the island, and that is the population is primarily of humans and dragons both greater (four-legged) and lesser (anthropomorphic) alike. What does this have

Fighting in the desert had become a brutish, primitive thing. Each blow was haphazard, sloppy, hacking motion with whatever weapon fit the wielder’s hand; and each encounter was a squabble won only through sheer strength and dumb luck.
The four brigands had seen such a scene played out time and time again, surviving through the two qualities that attributed to their immeasurable prowess. Yet when the lone thin form slipped over the dune and skid down to their camp they saw something different – a danger alien in every way, like a poisonous insect or venomous serpent.
The individual didn’t seem human – he was too slender, too agile. The pointed ears tucked beneath his hood hinted at an elven heritage; though, perfect in nearly every way, they were merely confirmation of an obvious suspicion.
But his complexion alone was not the only thing that rang of perfection. Before his feet left the sand his hands were on the move, twisting beneath his cloak to pull a pair o

The man’s countenance certainly reflected his mindset. Despite the rigors of social protocol placed on the wealthy elite, the modest nobleman adopted a tired but happy slump – an unmistakable lean in his otherwise perfect posture donned only in times of blissful relaxation.
And while his nightly routine of alcohol and silent thought began as it typically did, it did not remain on its uninterrupted course. Gradually, as the minutes ticked away beneath the black sky, there came a growing sense of foreboding – a notion that, from somewhere nearby, Bernard was being watched.

She had a way of speaking that was wholly unique – inflections and mannerisms she alone seemed capable of producing. Yet individually they were impossible to pinpoint, flowing eloquently in amongst her speech like silvery fish in a river’s current.
And those currents carried so much with each syllable: ease, anxiety, calm, danger, playfulness, sternness, happiness, and somberness were only the tip of the spectrum. They were those emotions and feelings pulled directly from her soul – and those mirrored in Strider’s own.

I have no idea how long I have been running and hiding for, but at least I know it has been awhile. I ducked under a bush, trying to catch my breath and hoping to hide from my pursuer. Did I catch my breath? Sorta, did I throw off my pursuer? No. I could tell by the fast and loud wind that had suddenly picked up from the trees, and shortly, a really loud thumping sound on the ground not too far away from where I was hiding. "Dammit" I cursed under my breath before I got up and ran in the opposite direction.
