There are people everywhere! Rows of people stretch all the way down the side of the 'Airport Road Convention Center' or ARC, waiting to be let in to get their badges (the same badge were just about to have to line up for, gulp). The entire area was packed with people waiting in the bright morning sun. Teens strolled with friends, others met up with people who they only ever saw once a year. The air was thick with excitement, laughter, and good natured fun.
"Welcome to hell," Bridget mumbles.
I can see why she would say that. So far I have seen three assertive fangirls fight over the sexuality of their favourite character (I am SO n

I was browsing the internet, like I normally do, on a Sunday evening. The sun was going down slowly and I was preparing to do my usual set of tasks. Homework for Monday morning, a quick game on Xbox Live and then draw for half an hour.
Only thing was, I had somehow found my way onto a random thread called "Urban Legends." I am a sucker for this shit. There's something about urban legends that just fills me with wonder and imaginative possibility.
Being the curious browser that I am, I began scrolling down through the mountainous thread and noticed that it was 100 pages or more by now. As I went through the board, post by po

Of mobbing flesh and bones and beings.
I watch, everyone.
One girl has a tray of nothing but greasy fries.
The boy at her arm can do nothing but stare at her breasts.
I skim my eyes over the crowd and
Find a group of perky girls giggling about something.
Their lips curled back, exposing too-white teeth.
I flicker my eyes around, and
Find a group of the skater-types.
Beanies, dark greasy hair, hoodies
All of them look too-sleepy. Probably stoned.
None of them are really talking. Just staring, then nodding, or sometimes smirking.
I scan the crowd again, and find a lone boy, sitting on the edge of a lunch tabl
Kain's Story Part 1 He moved his hands in front of his face, trying to warm his now red nose. It must have snowed during class because everything around him was encased in a harsh whiteness that hurt his eyes. He gave up on his nose, which was doomed to remain cold, and his hands retreated into the pockets of his black jacket. He needed a new one desperately. It had holes in the hood and practically everywhere else, the edges of it were frayed and the cloth had worn thin over time. He kept his fingers away from the small hole in his pocket that was letting in cold air.Kain's Story Part 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

It is your nephew, Arvid, writing this letter to you. It could very well be the last letter that I ever write. But I write to you to tell you of the goings-on here in Hamburg, Germany. I also write to tell you how lucky you are to live in such a place as Oregon in the United States of America. Your culture, I hope, is staying intact, unlike ours here in Germany.

The place in which we conclude our vicinity to be
Proceeding forth in a indeterminably vast distance
In order to extricate all things of which we express affection for from the hold of undesirable matters
In the case that we present the qualities of which we possess
We shall evade or endure the adversity
The place in which we conclude our vicinity to be
Being similar to a perpetually combusting celestial sphere
Radiating incandescence on the planet
Within the current twenty-four hours
Forcibly expel nefarious forces from the vicinity

This is probably the saddest fic i ever wroteWith a gentle click of a button your new, shining car locks itself. The orange lights flickering twice means that the transport device had successfully locked itself. With that you nod, carefully adjusting the fedora that sat proudly on your head. Today was another fruitful day at work, and you were in high spirits. Today was a very special day, indeed. A last glance at your new beauty and you were ready to go inside.

as fast as you can.
Pick up the pace-
the race has began.
So close yet so far
from your destination.
But you're on a roll
and fueled by inspiration.
You're on a deadline,
so I'll stand on the side
cheering you on
so on my words you can glide.
I'll encourage you
all the way, so
don't worry about me,
get going- go!
You're a star, a light
a girl with a show,
so don't just stand there-
give them your glow!
I know you can do it
if you just try
so come on, spread your wings
and I'll help you fly.

The night air was cool against their skin, the sparkling city of Panem glimmering below, almost mirroring the stars shining above them.
Dave shrugged. He liked the roof, liked being able to feel at least a little bit free from the Capitol's sweaty clutches. Liked being able to feel as if the entire country wasn't prying into his business.

You flinched at the British accented voice and redirected your gaze to Arthur whose green orbs were looking at you in worry. Shaking your head, you gave him what you hoped was a reassuring smile.

Oh yes, you did.

AngelsAlthough we may not see them,Angels1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And they don't make a sound,
Wherever they are needed,
an angel is around.
They watch over us every day,
trying to guide us on our way,
to follow good and its path,
to try to do it wherever you are.
They visit you in times of need,
When the future seems too bleak to see,
When it feels like all hope is lost,
And you have given up on life,
And you don't believe.
One visited me when I was at my worst,
And I thought that my life had been cursed,
But now I have the strength so I can achieve my dream,
And after reading this hopefully you'll believe in me,
As I am an angel and I believe in all of you.

Through my eyes the streets are mean.
In my mind the sunshine's back,
Through my eyes the sky is black.
In my mind I see bunnies and bears,
Through my eyes there's nobody there.
In my mind I see beautiful butterflies,
Through my eyes I see moths and flies.
It may take some time to realise,
But this isn't my mind,
This is real life.

Would you take it?
Would you understand?
If a man has nowhere he can go,
Would you give him a spot on your couch or a place in your home?
If a man has no food he can eat,
Would you feed him some bread, right there on the street?
If a man cries out in pain,
Would you be there to give him first aid?
The line must be drawn soon,
Like flies they all drop,
Where will the line end, before someone gets it to stop?
Whether they're hurt, scared, alone or confused,
All they want is help but all they get is used,
This is why I must ask,
These questions to you,
If you saw a homeless man today,

Poems are TreesA simple poemPoems are Trees1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Starts out small, like a seed
A simple seed
With love and care, grows
That seed is a word
Or subject, or phrase
That poem could be great
Just give it some time
A simple stanza
Four lines, two lines, that doesn't matter
A simple sapling,
Tiny branches, baby leaves
That sapling continues to grow
Every day, bigger
One spring, it thrives; inspired
One summer, it aches; disenchanted
One autumn, it sheds; edit
One winter, it rests; break
Now look at what I've done
My tree has grown.
