For Love-Chapter One "Allison, I can't go back on my word now. I made this promise 16 years ago!" Ally could not believe her ears! Her own father had arranged a marriage for her before she could even walk. She paced in front of the throne wracking her brain, trying to find ways to get out of this marriage. "Allison you have until your twenty-first birthday to find love." She stopped in front of her father, "this is like a bad movie," she sat down on her throne next to her father's. "Dad, arranged marriages are for the stone age! What possessed you to volunteer my life to some spoiled rich prince?" Her father silenced her with that, "first of all, you do not knowFor Love-Chapter One2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

She didn't want to turn on the lights until she reached her room so she felt her way to the stairs and ran up them as fast as she could. If the nosey neighbors knew she was home, they would want to stop and talk to her for hours and hear all about how her trip went. She loved her neighbors but she was instructed to get as much of her things as she could and meet up at the address which would be texted to her.

We're losing the strings
If I knew it'd hurt
I'd know what it means
If you'd say hello
My heart would say hi
My mouth wouldn't follow
So I'd just say good bye
I'd lock up my thoughts
I'd be losing my head
All the memories it brought
Back from the dead
If my heart had a face
It'd be sad right now
'Cause I can't retrace
'Cause I don't know how

If it had a true song
What good would it bring
To just sing along
To smile again
To see you my friend
To think of the past
How I hoped it would last... But
We've fallen apart
We've lost the strings

Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Let me start off by saying that this review might be very short due to the number of my friends who haven't seen the series, and the amount of spoilers.
Yes, this show has a lot of spoilers; what show doesn't? But this one almost seems to thrive on the "wow" moment that leaves your jaw on the ground.
The main plot (without spoilers) is basically this; there are evil creatures called "Witches" who exist in the near-future of Japan (and all over the world as well). These monsters take on many forms and create negative feelings in humans. This leads to suicides, murders, and death and despair overall. The Witches cr

For Love-Chapter Two Part 3The next day, Ally, Heather, Beth, and Kate had spent five hours shopping for new clothes. They had already spent an hour discussing the arrangements for Ally's car to be delivered to the house that afternoon. All of the clothes they had bought were loaded onto a truck on clothing racks. Beth couldn't believe her eyes. It seemed as if these two had bought everything in sight. It must be nice to have this much money to do whatever you please, she thought. Beth had stopped to talk to someone she'd attended college with but kept an eye on Ally while she ran up and down the aisles like a little kid in a candy shop.

Charlotte is one of the Witches from the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica. She appears only in episode 3, but has an important role, complete with crunchy sound effects.
I really love this character. She only appears in one episode, but still. Certain clues in her scene piece together to reveal her tragic back-story. In this anime, witches are monsters that were once human.
When she first appears, she has the appearance of a doll. She is simply adorable. Her 'witch's barrier' is littered with candy and sweets, though in one scene, there is a hypodermic needle. According to the website, she craves cheese. Her minions come in two varieties; on

The greatest show you'll ever see.
This man is insane; please push to get in,

Fifteen for every deadly sin,
This man is here for the devil within.

The gun at his head ain't got all day,
This is his first and only stay,
Please, everybody, right this way.
See that look upon his face?
From eyes to ears? That's pure disgrace!
His trembling lips can sense the taste
Of a soon-to-come bloody embrace.

you might experience a thing or two.
Sometimes good, sometimes bad,
but in the end you just make do.
You learn the most important things
within your first three years.
You learn to walk and talk and eat,
you learn the meaning of a tear.
Do you believe that as you grow,
you get any smarter?
Well if that's true, and you actually do,
then why must your brain work harder?
You may think you know a lot,

You may know one millionth of everything,
and that's at the very max.
If you were actually smart at all,

Actions clearly are not.
Lies and betrayal run rampant.
Dried tear lines renewed a lot.
Blood shot eyes look up in sadness.

Longing of just one touch.

Always the super hero.
Sometimes the victim.
DaisesWith loveless hearts and broken souls, they walked in the meadow. Following the sense of their callings, not realizing the irony of the situation they would walk into. Little flowers, daisies, are never really striking out, like roses or tulips and lilies. They walk and walk, trampling the miniscule flowers with every step. Never minding or even envisioning the facts, for those flowers would be the last flower they would ever see. Erie sounds surrounded the fields and both of them stood oblivious, for they were consumed within themselves. Almost home, those train tracks ahead signaled less than a quarter mile to go.

They were all born in that order too surprisingly enough and all girls, that made life in school a little easier for Winter and Spring who had the more unusual names. Once Autumn had been through their classes, teachers saw the last two sisters coming. They were all so different, yet so similar that teachers were constantly on their toes with the sisters.
Summer was the one that everyone loved. All three of her sisters wanted to be her, as did most of the population at her school. She made good grades, could do anything she tried and was
