Attack on Hephaestus
by Tim Barton
“The spread of civilization may be likened to a fire; first, a feeble spark,
next a flickering flame, then a mighty blaze, ever increasing in speed and power.”
In a remote corner of the universe, a swirl of freshly baked minerals condensed over the eons into rocky bodies of varying sizes. One of these bodies, though outwardly insignificant, carried a bio-chemical treasure of profound interest. The 40 km wide rock competed with other larger bodies for mass, using its gravitational power to seduce mineral rich dust to converge. The rocky world yearned to grow in size, but it had unwittingly attracted a different type of matter--the kind of matter that arranges itself in bags of mostly water and highly peculiar symmetrical shapes. These sapiens began transferring precious minerals from the subsurface into a new flower shaped orbiting body of rivaling size.

Hunter and Saber meet each other at a park and Saber looks at him in the eyes. Hunter did the same thing as she gave him a hug allowing Hunter to embrace her as this song by Donna Lewis plays:
Feels like I'm standing in a timeless dream of light mists
Of pale amber rose
Feels like I'm lost in a deep cloud of heavenly scent touching
Those days of warm rains come rushing back to me
Miles of windless summer night air
Secret moments shared in the heat of the afternoon
Out of the stillness
Soft spoken words
Say it, say it again
I love you always forever
Near and far closer together
Everywhere I will be with you
Everything I will do for you
You've got the most unbelievable blue eyes I've ever seen
You've got me almost melting away
As we lay there under blue sky with pure white stars
Exotic sweetness a magical time
Say it, say it again
Say you'll love love me forever
Never stop, never whatever
Near and far and always
And everywhere and everythi

Bullies in the hall,
They're really big and tall.
I'm just so afraid to fall...
How I wish,
That I could be,
Free from all this misery...
Let me change it up, so you know it's a rap.
I'm really sick and tired, of this bullshit and crap!
I know you've got a taste, for my fear and my pain...
How many times have I cried these tears in the rain!
I speak from words of wisdom, I know it's hard to focus.
When the world is bearing down, like a plague of angry locusts,
You sit, you pray, hoping for a better today,
Tomorrow is another day, 'Save me!' I hear you say.
I've had enough of people that are kickin' us down,
I say this is enough, no more crap flying around!
Hold on to your hopes, because you're gonna fly high,
Watch us spread our wings, we'll soar up before we die!
Remember what you're worth, and what you are inside,
You know you have a spark, so let that be your pride.
We've all got our talents, don't let them hold you back,
Spread your wings

It had been a long, tiring day. Running around the city had made Ariiel exhausted. She had just arrived at her new home in Japan and was more than ready for bed. She set her bag down decide her in front of the door. She had a hard time finding which key would open the door. She was unfamiliar with the lock and the house. This was her first time in Japan.

She finally found the right key and ventured into her new home. Her first time inside, she was amazed by how big it was. It seemed so small on the outside. The house ha

The line extended down the stairs, past the gates, and so far around the block that museum receptionists put up velvet rope dividers to twist the queue. They looked worn but not uncontent. It was worse two weeks ago when the exhibit was first announced. The crowds subdued them into complacent servicers while the ordeal hardened them into guest-desk Spartans. They were merely grateful now.
Newspapers passed between waiting strangers. Headlines read "All of Britain on Pilgrimage!" or "England's Greatest Treasures Unveiled!" Great Russell Street was littered with the spent pages. The pavement itself seemed to groan at the unwanted attention while the British Museum stood in majestic pomp, preening itself from the publicity.
But instead of the staff, officers of the met greeted the anticipating masses with dismissal this morning. There were a few minutes of hullabaloo, then a few more of irritation, and finally of exodus. For the first time in half a month, the entrance of the British Muse

It has always been just my brother and I. Always, even when that man took us off the streets, but never truly cared for us. Maybe that was when we began to crave something. Anything. An emotion? A love? Kirit was always foolish, jumping to conclusions and nearly getting us locked away on many occasions, but This time it was my fault. So my fault.
The guilt is eating away at me, consuming me.
Why did I do this?
We needed the money. Our little brothers were growing sick and the kind Flareon and Dewgong couldn't help for ever.
We were starving.
I'm so hungry and scare. I can't even think straight. All I saw was the poster on the street light. The paper bellowing in the wind, fluttering along the empty streets of the underground. Reaching up, having to stand on my tip toes, I took the paper, never even noticing that my brother stood behind me.
Whipping around, eyes widening and a smile on my face, I held it out. My tail flicked back and forth happily, his eyes softening slig

Wings Of Ice
Lay down my enemies painfully
Release all the hatred heartlessly
Another layer of frost maimed
I've become one with this eternal winter
I've stopped the flow of time in this one frame
My past and future have been torn asunder
I've frozen the pain within my veins
Never again will I ever have to surrender
I am but a reflection
Of every aimless sin
A casualty of corruption
So let my thoughts of vengeance unhinge
I'll reveal the face-
That you forced me to create
I'll indulge in the screams-
Knowing it's not a dream
Tears will instantly become icicles-
Allowing the scum of the Earth to cry is hypocritical
You're the taint that fell from grace-
You don't even deserve these snowy graves
You were all too careless
Always hurting those around you
Now accept the consequences
For the damages you cannot undo
None have survived
The vortex of truth

It was a dark and stormy night! No, wait, it wasn't stormy yet. That happened later. Well, let's just say it was a dark night and leave it there.
Two whole days had passed since we had left the Cottage. We'd seen some interesting things already, like a forest of sticks and a peaceful meadow filled with animals. We'd followed the light of the Really Big Lamp and Radio's navigation skills (if they really were real) to this place; a creepy forest of darkness.
Being a lamp, I hate the dark. That's why I was so glad my light was there to shine in the forest, showing everyone where to go. Of course, I was a little bit angry when Kirby told me to turn it off, but he had a good reason. The battery was dying, and without it there would be no way we could keep going. Sure, we can move on our own power for a little while, but we need some power source to keep us going forever.
So, there we were, in the dark and spooky forest, no light, running low on power, no light, in need of shelter, and no li

Twilight and her friends disembarked the chariot and thanked the guards, who held their heads high, showing off their pride. Twilight led her friends through the grounds and into the castle itself. There they met with Princess Celestia, who was pleased to see that they had finally arrived.Of Dreams and Nightmares Pt24 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Please, this way " spoke Celestia, her tone seeming to be layered with a sense of urgency, which contrasted her normal, slower, calmer way of speaking. The Princess led them through the elegant hallways, where shining marble pillars, and various stone carvings oversaw their progress. The Princess led them into the throne room, where her regal sister, Princess Luna was waiting. Celestia took her place on her throne, whilst the six ponies stood the customary distance away from the thrones.
Twilight took a small step forwards, making her stand out from the crowd. She bowed her head, and immediately lifted it back

In the morning she wakes up to the scent of frying meat and cheese potatoes. Her face and abdomen ached, and she decided to get ready before she went down to eat. She wanders around until she finds a bathroom, a few doors down.
'Argh. Why does my stomach hurt so bad? Was it the pasta? Nah, I practically ravish their food supply whenever I come over. What's wrong? Ugh, I hope I'm sick today.' _______ wonders to herself.
She sits down and she almost screamed.
'What the hell, did I shit myself?!' She mentally screamed waddling around the bathroom with her underwear pooling at her knees. 'What is that?!'
'My god...' Reality hits her.
'I just started my very first strawberry week...in a house full of men. On a school day. And I'm not sick, or good at acting. Joy...' She takes a breath and starts unwrapping the bandages before washing her face.
After a while, and for some odd reason, she found a few of what she 'needed' in the medicine cabin

Dorian frowned. He’d been distracted by the fact Iron Bull kept turning his head in the same direction. Dorian had turned to follow the Qunari’s gaze but found that he was just looking at the elf who sat by the fire, staring off into space.
He wondered what had the elf so caught up in his day dream that he hadn’t heard a word that anyone had said to him.
Although - Dorian made the alarming realization that the elf was staring at Blackwall.
“Bull?” Dorian mumbled lowly, causing the giant Qunari to regard him. “Is he looking at Blackwall like that?”
“I have been sitting here for the past few minutes trying to figure that one out myself…”

Dorian was giddy. If you asked him why he looked so giddy, he would probably just tell you it was gas – then again, he probably wouldn’t even tell you that or anything at all. He’d probably say something along the lines of ‘My, you imply I glow? I didn’t know you paid much mind to me – but then again, who could ever ignore such devilish looks like the ones I own?’ to which the person speaking to him either wanted to throw something at him, throw him, or vomit….or all of the above.

I stood in front of the door, I took a deep breath and open the door. The room looked like a normal recording studio you would see. There was a long control panel with a bunch of button for a lot of thing. Then there was a door to the left of it. You could see into it because of the glass that i think was one way not sure if it is. Because of the glass you would see that the small closet like room was sound proof and had a microphone in it. On the other side of the room was a large couch it was likely made out of real leather but not sure. And on top of that I was the only one here.
“Maybe I got the wrong room or maybe they’re not here yet.” I went and sat on the couch to wait for a few minutes to see if I got the right room and they’re late. The the open and a tall man with red hair walked in.

And yet I am constantly alone.
I want to converse with others,
But there is never anyone there,
So I talk to myself.
Why is it so quiet?
Why is it so cold?
Why don't I have something to hug?
I hate winter,
But during the summer I say I like winter,
During the winter you just use more blankets.
I miss high school,
I miss being around people,
I miss people I disliked.
But I can't decide on what to eat,
Food is more appealing when shared with others.
This will now take a turn,
All I eaten today was a PB&J.

High up in the mountains, my pipe of bronze

The UnderTakers (Pt 2)Morgan moved onto her stomach in her sleep, her head turned to its side and half her face pressed to the pillow. She moaned, her body sore. Her eyes slowly opened. Beside her, Luca laid unconscious. His chest rose and fell as he breathed slowly. Still half asleep, Morgan smiled. She closed her eyes again for a moment. Recollection of yesterday rammed into her head and she jumped up, startled! She looked around the room. It was a small sized room with stained renaissance wallpaper and old windows with spider weds in the corners. It only had a bed and a dresser, both stained wood. The bed was cotton white and the thin confider was pushed to the end of the bed. It was sunny outside. Morgan jumped up and ran to the window. It was a one story building in the forest, a dirt road continued on past the trees. Where the hell where they? Had they really been... Morgan held her hand to her mouth, remembering being suffocated.

The HoleAs I lay within the hole I now call my life I stare at the stars as the cold dirt scratches at my back. The sky is as beautiful as always because it provides me a sign of freedom, a luxury I cannot afford. I enjoy the glimmer of the night sky as much as the radiance of morning sun. Basically, when you are trapped in a hole with nothing but earth around you the sky becomes an extraordinary image. I dream beneath the moon and I shower under the warmth of the sun.The Hole3 weeks ago in Short Stories More Like This
Enough with the positive because the stars force me to enter the past. I do not understand how I got stuck within a hole. It can be because of my lack of decisions, my fear of bravery or the enemies I made. For some strange reason all I remember is waking up in a hole on a dark stormy night. The rain attacks my skin, my body shivers and my wet cloths prevent any chance of warmth. I do not call out for help because I am afraid. I hold my body in a ball as my hands rattle and tears poor from my eyes.

Fading away into colours of gray
And my soul is running
Running away at the break of day
Rope on her neck

With her hearts and spades

When madness came nigher
As she drowned in her fantasy
Now her life is fading
Fading away into colours of gray
And her soul is running
Running away at the death of day
