A Trick to SleepIt was quite a sight for Mamori to see her fiancé struggling to get comfortable in the narrow train seat he was in. He fidgeted, and got up a couple of times, growling in annoyance and mumbled profanities that grew louder and louder, causing the others in the train to scoot as far away from him as possible. She could only watch sympathetically as she felt partly responsible for Hiruma's discomfort. "You really should try to get some rest," Mamori spoke up.A Trick to Sleep4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Yeah, well, sleep would come easily to me if you remembered the fucking sleeping pills," Hiruma replied with annoyance.
"I'm sorry, but we did rush after your game and I had to pack for the both of us. You haven't slept for over 48 hours now."
"I don't think I can fucking sleep," Hiruma scowled as he sank into his seat.
Mamori sighed, knowing how Hiruma was hard to handle when he had this attitude on. "Are you nervous because we're going to visit your father? We won't reach there in the next two to three hours so--"

One day, Shaun Hastings was practicing yoga for stress relief when, suddenly, the roof caved in because Templars. There was a shriek like that of a little girl, and Lucy and Rebecca shouted in surprise, too. Seeing how frightened they all were, Shaun decided that this was a job for SUPER SHAUN. He stood up confidently and tore open his sweater vest, revealing a second shirt with a magnificent letter "S" and an elegant, flowing cape. Then, he flew up, up, and away through the hole in the ceiling to go find a more suitable environment for his yoga session.
Later that same day, Cheziray and Malik danced at a fantabulous rave, even though none of those things ever existed in the same time period.

He hates all the mushy and corny things he has ever heard in his entire life. He even thought of bombing chocolate companies for their foolish idea of coming up with such ridiculous event. Love is in the air indeed, for everywhere he walks upon, he saw couples, girls giving chocolates and confessing at the same time, and all sort of things that he think is horrendously mushy.

"Carl, there's a dead human in our house!"
My best friend-and roommate-Carl, was in the kitchen, doing the dishes, which was odd, because Carl never did the chores.
He shuffled over and poked the dead body with his foot. "Oh...hey...how did he get here?" Blood was pooling on the floor, from multiple stab wounds in the dead man's chest.
His lying tone was obvious. I stared at him, alarmed. "Carl, what did you DO?!"
He waved a hand nonchalantly. "Me? I didn't do this."
"Explain what happened, Carl!" I said angrily. These kinds of things seemed to happen whenever I went out...
"I've never seen him before in my life!" Carl protested.
"Why did you kill this person, Carl?!"
"I do not kill people. That is..." he couldn't help glancing back towards the kitchen. "That is my LEAST favorite thing to do."
I sighed. "Carl, tell me exactly what you were doing before I got home."

Desmond found that he could compare the way Shaun hid their relationship outside of their darkened rooms and hidden spaces to a curtain concealing a beautiful set from the awaiting crowd.
The night after he first killed a man was spent outside in the cold until his body forgot what it was to be warm, until it forgot the heat another human ould bring- but when he came inside Shaun was right there to help him remember.
Looking into a mirror was one thing Desmond avoided ever since he was forced to watch his face contort in pleasure by a certain historian.
Never in his life had Desmond even thought about learning to waltz, but at this moment as Shaun led him around the bedroom they were using as a makeshift ballroom, he decided that it wouldn't be so bad to start taking lessons.

Tranquil TempestI used to be scared of storms.Tranquil Tempest3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I used to walk into school every day thinking that there was going to be a tornado, or a hurricane, or some sort of other severe weather that would kill me, even if there was not a cloud in the sky.
There were countless stormy nights when my parents, still half-asleep and groggy, would wake up to find me huddled in our downstairs bathtub with a flashlight, canned goods from our pantry, and various coloring books and other drawing supplies to help me wait out the storm that had frightened me so.
But over the years I grew from being deathly afraid of storms to being strangely fascinated by them.
In a matter of seconds the golden rays of sun dancing across my white skin would be ripped away by churning black clouds, brewing with electricity and thunder.

She turned the pages of her book while readjusting her feet on the couch. A smile crept onto her face as she thought about her son who was lying in his bed upstairs. The nine year old had gone to sleep almost without a hitch. It seemed like it was yesterday she was tucking him in with a bed time story and checking his room for the crafty monsters that hide in little boy's closets. Recently it has been a goodnight kiss and little more.

Werewolf Genre Pet PeevesWerewolves have never had terribly consistent folklore. Even prior to the early days of film, werewolf myths varied wildly - good and evil, permanently and temporarily transformed, quadruped and bipedal (rarely), curable or incurable, etc, etc. Because the legends were so scatter-brained, the original The Wolf Man largely invented its own mythos. It was imitated repeatedly and became the "standard" of the genre. As the formula began to wear thin, others added new innovation to the myth - some ideas stuck and some didn't.Werewolf Genre Pet Peeves3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
With such a scattered range of ideas, it's only natural that fans of werewolves aren't going to like all of them and I'm no different. In fact, I downright can't stand some aspects commonly used in modern werewolf fiction. Maybe it doesn't make any sense, maybe it contradicts my artistic principles, or maybe I just don't like it. Whatever the reason, a few genre tropes that I don't like developed into pet peeves - and if you're a werewolf fanboy or fangir
Werewolf Genre Pet Peeves: Annoying PuppiesYou asked for it and you got it: more ranting! Today, we'll be talking about the new pups on the block of overused cliches and broken tropes.Werewolf Genre Pet Peeves: Annoying Puppies3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
A trend lately is to have werewolves born as humans and have their first change in their teenage years. There's a few reasons for this, the most significant of which seems to be so that normal, everyday high school students can suddenly discover that they're werewolves as a wish fulfillment fantasy (see my last essay for an in-depth rant about my high school werewolves). Yet, there may be a more subtle reason: because big scary werewolves aren't so scary as puppies. Instead, they're likely to be adorably awkward: chewing on furniture, transforming at inconvenient times, biting their friends, etc.
That's what these tropes are - the new puppies running around underfoot. Despite being relatively new to the genre, they've already overstayed their welcome. To keep the puppy metaphor, for most of these tropes, it's not that they're inherently bad
