AspieI have Asperger's Syndrome.Aspie3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even saying it makes me feel relief.
I'm not weird.
I'm not strange.
I'm not different.
Well, I am different.
But I'm different for a reason.
My brain is wired up differently.
My brain is square when everybody else's is round.
My brain has three layers and everybody else has eight.
I get worried when I don't know what I'm doing.
I get worried around lots of people.
I get worried if things change.
I'm bad at telling how people feel.
I'm bad at reading people's faces.
I'm bad at a lot of social things.
But I'm good at things too.
I'm good at Maths.
I'm good at Music.
I'm good at knowing right from wrong.
I was unhappy before I knew about my Asperger's.
I'm not happy now. But I am relieved.
I'm an Aspie.
And I'm sure about things that I wasn't sure about before.

"And the winner is...Meg Griffin!"
Despite the occasional jeers and mean-spirited, half-hidden boos that floated up to her from small regions of the student audience during afternoon Assembly, socially hapless Meg Griffin couldn't help but smile as she strode on stage.
Perfunctory applause soon drowned the jeers, however, as she nervously reached out and shook the reedy CEO's thin, soft hand, feeling a sudden rush, and accepting his sealed envelope. The letter inside that would open the social world to her.
"Thank you, Mr. Ragg," Meg gushed. "You won't be sorry. I'll make your magazine proud."

She dashed upstairs to find some money. She had $3 exactly. She put it aside and picked out her outfit for tomorrow.

Her mother looked at Charlie, and he shrugged, confused.

“Bye kids, have a nice day at school!” says Lois.
She drives away and Chris and Meg were about to head to their classes when Chris notices Meg looking upset. “What’s wrong, Meg?” he asks.
“*Sigh* Chris, do you that ‘Futurama’ is my favorite show?” Meg responds.

2. Then add that since Johnny's cigarette lit the fire, God killed him. Then smile and wait for a reply.
3. Remind him that Bob's not around anymore, so the only reason Cherry doesn't want to be seen with him must be that there's something wrong with him.
4. Demand proof that his name is Ponyboy.
5. If he goes through a lot of trouble to find proof, say "I knew it! You owe me 10 bucks!" and stomp away.
6. If he easily provides proof, ask him how drunk his parents were at the time of naming him.
7. Tell him you read his english theme. If he replies, interrupt him and add that you thought it was disturbing and suggest a therapist.
8. If you see him on the street, walk up to him and ask for "A Pony boy". When he says so, ask him where the pony is. If he explains his name, reply you'd asked for someone to bring a pony as a kiddie ride for a birthday party. Give him dirty looks as you leave.

Coraline came out and put her bags in the trunk. She climbed into the backseat of the car. With the radio going, they drove away from the Pink Palace. Coraline looked back at the house silhouetted against the dreary grey sky. It reminded her of moving away from Pontiac. There was a slight wind in the air as the car backed out. She saw Mr. B waving good-by from the roof.
She waved back, knowing he couldn't see her. She was a small bit nervous; she had never been on a ship before. What if she got seasick? She tried not to let those thoughts distract her. There was a longish drive ahead of her. She had a small iPod s

Coraline Jones awakened early, and went to get some breakfast. In the dining hall, there was a large serving of French toast and omelets. The skies were still grey and unpleasant, but at least it wasn't raining.
Charlie ran up to her and said, "Coraline, come quickly!"
"Come on!" he said, grinning.
He walked towards the prow of the ship and beckoned mysteriously to her. Coraline decided to play along and went with her dad to the very front of the ship. A small crowd had gathered there. Coraline, a little confused, followed her father into the crowd. When she reached the balcony, she stopped and stared.
Off the side of the ship was a pod of orca whales breaching. They made a whooping moaning noise and fell backwards into the water. They came frightfully close t

Coraline woke to find herself on the floor, and her hip hurting. The ship was rocking much more now, and some of her things were falling of the wooden dresser facing her from across the room. She was rather curious, and she went above deck, in her enthusiasm forgetting a shawl.
After a wobbly climb up a few flights of stairs, she went above deck to see the skies grey and unpleasant, with waves higher than before and more forceful. A chilling wind filled the air, piercing Coraline's light clothing. Her toes were cold against the deck. A gruff voice came from behind her, "Well, little girl, looks like it's going be a rough one."
Coraline whirled around, startled. Behind her was just David. "Oh, hi David," she said cheerily.
"Say, I never got your name."
"Oh, it's Coraline. Coraline Jones."
"So," he said, (Coraline waited for him to say Caroline) "Coraline, huh? Odd name, that is. Well, I'd let your parents know there's going to be worse waves coming," he held up

So here's the story,
about the girl who wanted to fall.
Atop a tall peak sits the fate of a girl.
The girl who wants to fall.
Not jump. fall
It's all too easy to stand and enjoy the view
When you're above the clouds.
But what lies beneath those clouds
A jump. It's suicide.
A single step and it grabs the tips of your toes,
And down you fall.
Up there, the clouds are inviting,
On approach, they won't cushion the fall.
So keep doing just that.
Gravity keeps pulling me down.
Is there someone to grab at my fingers,
To bring me back to that tall peak.
A step, and you grab me.
It's all of you, to battle gravity.
Trapped under the suffocating clouds,
And there's an army.
Hand in hand, one by one,
Back to the top.
There's always a ladder back up to the peak of that mountain.
Just learn to hold on, and climb back up with the hands in mutual motions.

It seems like every love song comes on;
now that you have come and gone.
It makes me feel lonely and hurt,
like I'm only a grain of dirt,
unimportant and unwanted.
Really, I'm quite disappointed.
I thought we could have lasted longer,
but it seems I couldn't have been wronger.
It thought you loved me; I thought you cared,
but it turns out your love was shared
with other women, well, just one;
the one who dumped you, and claimed to be done.
You took my heart and ripped it to shreds
and now, inside, I am dead.

Coraline awakened, and immediately became aware of a rocking sensation. She blearily looked around, confused, and realized where she was. She was onboard a ship! Looking out the small window in her room, she could see the ocean. Still, it was early, and she thought she should get back to sleep. But she was too excited, and quickly ran to the top deck, wearing her shawl.
It was chilly, but definitely much warmer than it was in Ashland. There was the smell of maple syrup coming from the dining hall. Inside was an unset table with a few people milling about it. There was a clock, a great antique clock with Roman numerals for numbers and a fancy designed pendulum. It appeared to have stopped ticking.
After about ten minutes, the rest of the passengers wandered in, and a breakfast of pancakes and Belgian waffles was devoured. Coraline went to see if the pool was open. A new sign was up. POOL CLOS

They tell you that you are useless,
They ask you to try harder,
They tell you your life is pointless.
You just keep trying,
You may not be the best,
But you never give up,
You never let it rest.
When they can't understand who you are,
When you mess up and a chance gets blown,
When you want to be accepted,
Remember, you are not alone.
You can always keep trying,
You may not be the best,
But you never give up,
You never let it rest.
We all feel pain and distraught,
At some point in our life,
But my dear, sweet, friend,
Refuse to be the middle of their taunt.
You can always keep trying,
You may not be the best,
But you never give up,
You never let it rest.
And if you ever need help,
Then all you need to do,
For me to start running, is shout

Sleeping Habits, a Romantically Apocalyptic fanficSleeping Habits, a Romantically Apocalyptic fanfic1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
fandom: Romantically Apocalyptic
genre: hurt/comfort, friendship, fluff
characters: mostly Engie
summary:As a light sleeper, Engie has plenty of time to observe and wonder over his crewmates´ sleeping habits. His observations leave him a bit grumpy, but Pilot is already working to find a solution ...
Maybe it is because he could never get enough sleep when Annet was still sending. Maybe it is because even the reality of post apocalyptic life is not as dreadful as his nightmares back then were. When Charles Snippy is asleep, he could as well be dead. The engineer is sure that even a rifle fired next to the sniper could not wake him up. Of course this is beneficial to Captain´s and Pilot´s habit of pulling pranks on Snippy. Gromov clearly remembers the day the tour guide woke up dressed in a pink rabbit costume because Captain wanted him to replace the Easter Bunny, claiming the real one had been abducted by aliens...
Captain, on the other hand, rarely sleeps.
