The only thing he could think of was killing them. Tearing them all limb from limb and making them suffer as much as she had. The monstrous pumpkin mecha towered over Oogie Boogie and the three children as they all cowered in fear.
So pathetic to look at. He didn't know where to begin. Screw it. Oogie Boogie was who he wanted. The mecha had become part of him and it's arm behaved like his. All he had to do was think about moving it and the mech obeyed. Oogie was too terrified to attempt an escape. The Pumpkinator squeezed the fat coward tightly as Junior unapologetically glared at him.
"OH PLEEEASE! I'm not a bad oogie boogie, I just make bad mistakes. You can find some kindness in your heart, can't you?"
Junior said nothing. He tightened his grip ever so slowly. Oogie felt it crushing him slowly, squeezing the breath out

It was unbelievably bright on his eyes that had been used to the dim netherworld. Junior didn't know what to expect when he invaded Heaven other than a fight with a bunch of pompous angels ready to tear him apart. It terrified him that he had reverted to his former self. He was powerless in this state, how was he supposed to rescue Minnie without his new reaper powers?
It didn't matter. He knew what had to be done and that was it. Heaven was wide and sunny with grass and flowers everywhere. The fresh air lifted his spirit and gave him hope as he thought of his next move. Something inside him directed Junior in her direction. He was oblivious to the nergal demon powers that guided them to their former master, but he didn't need an explanation.
There she was. Under a tree gazing into the blue, cloudless sky and smiling at the wonders all around her. Junior s

It was later than he should have been out, too bad that he didnt care. Junior was in a world where only Her and himself existed. It had been about a month since he came to the world of the living and he really forgot how good his own body felt. He was nervous about being a skeleton again, but she said that he was cuter this way. Now he was strolling around in the moonlight with his crimson red, beautiful demon girlfriend, with her clinging to his arm.
The first kiss she gave him was a simple peck on the lips. The second was a REAL kiss that he was sorely unprepared for. She noticed and helped him figure it out. They barely said a word while they sat on a hill in the cemetery. He told Her about coming here and missing his family and about fighting angels and Oogie Boogie. He didnt tell her much about Minnie or Sadako because it wou
Hamelin's Ashes: Part FourA short distance from the river, where Piper was just preparing to play his luring song against his will, there laid a mangled form in the tall grass. A small rat was in the grass, its head squashed under the foot of Dr. Crooked. Small, almost undetectable bits of pink were strewn through the brown patch of blood-stained grass located beneath the creature's shattered skull. Its lower jaw was bent in a different direction than his upper one. Small bits of yellow rat teeth littered the area around its body. Part of its eye was squashed upon the impact of the crooked foot, leaving a red-white meaty mass where its right eye should have been. It remained motionless in the grass.Hamelin's Ashes: Part Four9 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
None of this information would be particularly interesting were it not for one small detail.
It was still alive.
Just as Piper took the first breath to blow into his flute, the broken rat's tail moved slightly. With pain shooting though its every nerve, it pushed itself off the soil, shaking wildly.

Posie looked down, broken and hysteric from the events that had taken place. She clutched the spot where her left arm had been, which was now just a small, bandaged nub. Her sister, Rosie, realizing what had she had done, looked down at her bandaged hands, thick with the scent of blood, and began to laugh hysterically. Posie hesitated to think whether she laughed out of shear lunacy or whether she honestly believed what she had done was right.
The smell of rotted flesh and ash hung in the air. The chorus of screams that could once be heard from the hills had begun to fade, as the last tortured victims of the sickness succumbed into the sweet release of death.
Posie looked around, seeing the bodies of all
Hamelin's Ashes: Part TwoNot far from the river, a man cloaked in shadows watches Piper's revealing display. As he lied hiding in the bushes, he silently observed Posie, who had been unlucky enough to draw his interest. The observer watched the terror wash over the girl's face and smiled with glee. Deciding he would gather intelligence on her, he watched the scene before him unfold, while the gears in his mind began to spin as he began to erect his plot.Hamelin's Ashes: Part Two9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Uh oh," said Piper.
Upon seeing the twisted abomination that was Piper's left arm, Posie was frozen in fear. Every fiber of her body began to shake. She wanted to scream, but all that came out was a whimper. All she could do was keep staring at the ashy claw and then into Piper's equally bizarre, though less fearful, white pupils.
Piper saw her fear in her eye and tried to explain himself.
"Please, don't…I'm not going to hurt you," said Piper. Through an

One bad habit humans have is to place their beliefs to heavily in theatrics. They overly romanticize their world view, unconsciously believing that terrible events could only occur under the presence of dark ominous clouds, lightning crackling through the skies, or the night sky, possibly with the howling of wolves in the background.
However, fate does not have a flair for the dramatic. The sad fact is that most of the time, the worst tragedies occur in broad daylight on a bright day unlike any other.
Sadly, everyone in Hamelin would soon realize this.
What am I doing? thought Piper, as he walked into Hamelin that morning. The revelations from the previous night stil
Hamelin's Ashes: Part Five"This is the beginning," said Dr. Crooked, outloud, as if he were addressing the world. Only two types of people like to talk to themselves: those succumbing to insanity and those who believe they are changing the world.Hamelin's Ashes: Part Five9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
These two cases overlap far more than people would think.
Dr. Crooked twirled the black pipe in his hand.
This disease shall be the first weapon in my arsenal, he thought. Years from now, when all the variables have been aligned, this shall be the disease that smites the waste of mankind and allow the deserving to live in everlasting power. Not even that meddling Queen shall have the power to stop the inevitable.
Dr. Crooked looked down at Rosie, who was preparing to deliver a blow with her axe to some unfortunate fool. Dr. Crooked smiled, still twirling his pipe.
That girl is far more interesting than I originally anticipated, he thought. Even after only a short time of being entangled in Dr. Crooked's plot, he already found her a more unique tool

Minnie's head was resting on Junior's chest while she peacefully dreamed of a dark and dreary underworld that she had since forgotten about. She lifted her head and looked up at her sibling. "Big brother?"
Junior yawned as he woke from his sleep. "Yea? What's up?"
"I wanna go home now." He looked at her confused. He didn't understand what she was talking about. He really had forgotten all about the underworld. "Brother, don't tell me that you have forgotten about our mother and father. Surely they are waiting for us to return?"
"I'm not sure I understand..." SMACK! It hit him. How could he have just forgotten everything?! Alright, time to leave. He simply summoned his scythe and smiled at her. They stood up and with a swipe of the blade a portal to the underworld was open.

It's not a simple life when you're the son of the Grim Reaper. Most times life is simple and it's very luxurious being "Prince of the Dead". Grim Jr. had always been a stubborn, selfish, little boy, who had despised his little sister for being the center of attention and having demon powers that were far beyond anything he could do.
About a year ago things changed with a visit to Halloween Town where his sister died for a little bit. Ever since he had saved her the two became very close and spent almost every moment together. It was kind of like they were trying to make up for lost time.
Junior's father called him in one day and ordered him to close the door. "Junior, you do know dat you're almost thirteen and you will hafta start you're Reaper training soon?" Junior gave a nod signing that he understood. "Well den, we should discuss your pre-training."

Being in school is no treat for a child by any means. Especially to a twelve year old little boy who has just left home and dreams about his family every night. Junior sat by the window hypnotized by his own reflection. He had skin, a full head of hair, and another eye. The girls in his class said his eyes were pretty and that since they were two different colors that it must mean something special. They had no idea.
Junior slipped the cell phone out of his pocket slyly to check the vibration. It was a text from Uncle Nergal telling him to walk home today because he couldn't pick him up. It was a nice day out, after all. When the final bell rang Junior picked up his backpack and started on his way. He still had mied feelings about this whole situation, but he had made friends and was happy to be living with his uncle.

I will be posting about story related things (updates and snippets for upcoming stories if you're interested), while also reblogging and posting things I find funny or interesting. If you have a Tumblr (or even if you don't but want to start one), please follow me! I feel so awkward having a blog that no one reads. It's like "Oh hey, me, look at this picture you love. Yes, I know you've already seen it but no one else is going to look." So yeah, please follow me. And ask me lots of questions! About my stories or ANYTHING else, I don't care.

Monster 32I awoke after an exhausting sleep, preceeded by listening to my brother and the doctor argue. I had been too tired after all of the shifting to bother opening my eyes or make any moves to indicate that I was awake and listening to them. Hell, I think I fell asleep before the argument even ended, though I did remember feeling satisfied that Tarot wouldn't give away my secret. Sighing deeply, I pushed myself into a sitting position with little more than a wince of pain as my skin pulled at my healing wounds.Monster 325 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Well, you definitely look like you are feeling better," Hides said, causing my head to jerk quickly in his direction. "You'd probably be all better right now if Walker hadn't used silver to torture you." I shuddered slightly, remembering the searing pain that the man had ripped through my body.
"Where's Brad?" I asked softly, surprised to find that I had a voice even if my throat was still a bit sore.

Monster 90It was nearly midnight when I finally got back to the penthouse apartment that I shared with my mate. Hides had dropped me off in favour of going to see the man he was trying to convince to become his mate, so I returned to the apartment alone. I was looking to get a chance to snuggle up and perhaps make love to Jinx, but that thought immediately fled my mind when I entered the apartment. Tarot and Paisley were seated on the couch and the teenage blonde had her face buried in her eldest brother's chest, crying.Monster 905 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"What happened?" I asked softly, shuddering slightly under the look that Tarot cast in my direction. It was painfully obvious to me that Jinx wasn't home, but I hadn't had any pain or discomfort so I didn't think he was hurt. But Tarot was comforting Paisley and Jinx was gone and I could only imagine that my mate had done something to upset them both before leaving.
"Where's your brother?" Tarot asked in lieu of a reply and I froze. I stared into the steel blue eyes that were wa
Monster 86"Where the hell is that girl?" Jinx fumed, pacing about the apartment. It was Saturday evening and we hadn't seen or heard from Paisley in several days, thus breaking one of the rules Jinx had set for his sister. We had assumed that she was staying with Jack, but he had told my lover that he hadn't seen the girl or her best friend since the day Jinx was released from the hospital. "I'm going to kill her when I see her again," he muttered, continuing his pacing.Monster 865 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Have you tried calling her?" Tarot asked, mildly amused at Jinx's fuming, but just as worried about where the girl had gone off to. Nothing was more important to the two of them than family and I'd already come to learn that, mostly the hard way.
"Of course I have!" Jinx snapped, turning a glare on his older half brother who threw his hands up in defense. "You think I'd be this pissed off if she would answer her damn phone?!" I sighed. I really hated seeing my young mate so worked up. Especially after everything I had done this
Monster 79I was happy to see Tarot making an effort to cheer his brother up after how agravated the blonde was when the homicide detectives finally left. It was definitely something I hadn't really seen, but it helped and it put Paisley more at ease as well. I was smirking to myself as the eldest blonde made a comment about needing something to eat and ended up being surprised when he grabbed my arm to pull me from the room. I let him pull me a few feet from the room before he let go of me.Monster 795 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Let's have a chat," he said and I raised an eyebrow.
"About?" I asked. He abruptly stopped and turned to face, all hints of the happy-go-lucky Tarot from a few minutes ago disappearing.
"I may not be dating Conner anymore, but he is still my friend and if you screw him over I will be chaining you to the back of my motorcycle and going off roading," he said in all deadly seriousness. I had little doubt that if I hurt his little red haired friend that he would try very hard to make good on that threat.
Monster 73I was already pacing in the apartment with my chest so tight I could barely breathe, but I nearly collapsed when I got the phone call from Dani saying that something had happened to him at his parents' house. If it was bad enough that he had to make a phone call to someone, why couldn't my mate have called me? I could only hope for the moment that it wasn't as serious as when the valley pack had kidnapped him, but I couldn't hold tightly to such a vain hope. From what Dani had said, Tarot seemed extremely panicked, so I could only imagine what the phone call he got from Jinx must have been like.Monster 735 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Hides was busy trying to explain to Paisley just why I was in so much pain when Dani called a second time to tell me that Jinx had been taken to the emergency room. My little bubble of hope burst then and tears truly began to fall from my eyes in rivers. I stumbled towards the apartment door, grabbing the spare keys to Jinx's car before I felt my brother's arm slide around me. We were both well
Monster 52I rolled over and groaned as the alarm clock went off at nine the next morning. I could smell breakfast cooking and my stomach was absolutely thrilled with the idea, but the rest of my body didn't want to move. Hell, I didn't even want to be awake yet. I rubbed my face in the back of Rain's furry neck, sighing softly before I crawled out of bed and made my way to the bathroom for a shower. As the hot water poured down over my skin, I vaguely wondered if last was all just a dream. I would have passed it off as such if not for the dark red circular scar on my right shoulder to remind me of just where I had been shot.Monster 525 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Brad was awake and out of the room by the time I got out of the shower. I quickly got dressed in a pair of dark blue jeans and a white button down silk shirt. I pulled my hair back before slipping on my boots and sliding the silver bladed stiletto underneath my belt. Before a month ago, I wouldn't have even considered carrying my blade to go see my father, but I was still wo
Monster 65I was so incredibly relieved when Tarot woke up finally a couple of days ago, even though he'd only remained awake for about ten minutes before he fell asleep again. At least, it wasn't back into a coma and he'd managed to ease just about every ounce of fear I had that it had been on purpose. Unfortunately, we hadn't yet had a chance to truly talk, so I still had a nagging feeling that his sleeplessness was still my fault. I watched his mood over the couple of days after he woke up, worried a bit that he seemed to be deeply contemplative and a bit depressed. Well, maybe depressed wasn't quite the right word, but he was definitely not quite the same Tarot that I was used to.Monster 655 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
For the last few days, Brad had been the only one coming to the hospital.

But it all went away as soon as I reached the other side of the portal. I looked down at Minnie, she had fallen asleep that fast. I looked around it looked like we landed in a kitchen. A very familiar one at that too. There was a purple chandelier and a simple commercial kitchen.

Monster 80Paisley fell asleep shortly after Tarot left for the evening. He hadn't said what his plans for the night were, but he definitely seemed excited about them. Jinx had to have an idea though, as he was smiling broadly as his brother left. However, once Tarot was gone and Paisley was asleep, his eyes traveled back down to the handcuffs around his wrist. Knowing exactly why he was under arrest, handcuffed to his hospital bed and with a police officer posted outside of his door was something that bothered him.Monster 805 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"You know, Hides is right," I said, running my hand along the back of his neck in an effort to soothe him like I had seen Tarot do. "They'll eventually find evidence to the truth and this will all be behind you." He nodded a little and turned his head to press his face against my chest.
"I just want to wake up from this nightmare," he mumbled softly. I sighed a little, wishing there was something more I could do to make things better for him. But short of killing the officer and break

But I'm mostly pissed that she still likes me after all that. Not to mention she follows me around, right now she's walking beside me to the living room.

"Yes, you have to. You have no choice what so ever."
