Rainy Day Comfort -VORE-The human cursed, pausing long enough to wipe water droplets from his glasses before stepping into the slightly warmer space in the wall. Warmer only because it was out of the wind. It was still wet. Very wet. And it didn’t take long for the streams of water dripping from the cracked roof of the tunnel to undo his work of drying his glasses. Of course it would start storming while he was out on a practice run.Rainy Day Comfort -VORE-2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Dean hated the rain in the Faron lands…normally the wet weather wouldn’t be so bad. But the storms here were cold. And windy.
Half the time he swore the damn giants charmed the clouds overhead to make it rain such ungodly amounts. Maybe it satisfied their innate desire for the wetness of their ancestors’ lands back in ancient Ireland…
He’d believe it. Wouldn’t put it past them. The weather was exactly as he recalled the history books describing it to be…
Wet, cold, overcast and dreary…but at least it was warm when th

Take Me Home: Brice
"Her memory is a prison from which she cannot escape."
Max didn't really have much to do on his first night in his new home. The only thing he had thought to unpack right away was his computer and to set up his internet. It was a relief to not be disconnected from the world. He was looking through his entire usual fair when an advertisement popped up filling the screen for something called "TinEbay."
"Clever," he muttered and began to try and close it. He didn't appreciate jokes like this, no matter how interesting they were and he cursed himself for not getting a stronger ad blocker. The more he clicked, the more faces appeared on the screen some claiming that those on the screen were good at games, had an amazing memory, loved to read and had been pampered. They looked pretty human to him though and he was inwardly disgusted that most of the girls and guys filling the screen were wearing
I Was the First Chapter 16When I woke up the next morning and Natalie was gone, I have to say that I really wasn't surprised. I mean she wanted her independence and I knew that was important to her. What I wasn't prepared to see was Natalie leaning into my brother who was sitting at my kitchen table. I wanted to throw things; I was so upset that this was happening again. Every time I wanted something whether it be mom's attention, a girlfriend or a new activity, Shai would always swoop in and take it away from me. He was good like that. He was more charming than I was, and I I felt like I wasn't good enough. Again.I Was the First Chapter 164 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Listening to Natalie's broken whisper and how she didn't think I got her in the same way Shai did was just another reminder that I was inferior to him. Eventually he would win Natalie over and Shai just wanted to take her back to her human home again. Or so I thought at the time.

These little hikes were the only thing that kept me from losing it. It wasn't some mental problem, or anything. More like a lack of one. Nothing ever happened on this island. Things never changed. I know that was tempting fate, saying that nothing happened, but I didn't care. I'd tempt fate for hours to it's face if it meant things would get interesting. Hell, I'd been living alone so long I'd get into a fist fight with fate and ask it to do something!
I stopped in my tracks, looked to the sky, and shouted, "Come on! Throw a tiger at me if you have to! Just do something!" I stared at the empty space above me for a good few minutes, not sure what I was expecting. Maybe I'd get lucky and some unnamed deity from another world would happen to notice my shout and do something. Maybe an alien race would pick up my voice and abduct me. After another few minutes spent lost in thought I sighed and looked back down at my path. "And maybe I'm just finally going crazy."

The next few weeks you tried to go about your business as normally as you could; you didn't know how long it would to take to hear back (or even if you would at all). After all, you were young. You were a fangirl. And you weren't that special. You knew all that. In class, you tried to concentrate. You learned about the feudal government system and thought about being onstage in Seoul. You studied DNA and imagined a dance number with Taeyang.
But mostly, you thought about meeting G.D., your Kwon Jiyong, who'd been your celebrity crush almost since they'd debuted. You knew if maybe you could get in with YG, there might be a slim chance that the two of you might meet, maybe even work together. Something about his childish looks and cute, boyish, smile just made you… ugh. You couldn't even explain how happy he made you feel.

Open the door, they beg. Please please please, open the door.
He ignores them, grabbing his locket with one hand while leaning wearily against the scythe that he stands guard with. Everything, from the scythe to the fabric of his clothes, feels as if it grows heavier by the hour.
He takes a look at his pocket watch, and with an exhausted but relieved sigh, he sees that it’s time to end the shift at the gates for today. And so he heads for the small set of barracks that functions as his home away from home.
He leaves his scythe on a hook inside the door, before he heads to his bedrooms where he wearily rids himself of his uniform. Its padding keeps him warm in this part of space, where no sun can cast its light. It is meant to be a precaution, so that no shadows can be made, but the lack of sun also
Life Changing: Chapter 1I fell. I fell so quickly and so fast that I almost lost my breath as the wind and air beat around my face. I wouldn't survive the fall, it didn't matter. What I found the most strange was that I couldn't see the plane that I had just been pushed out of. It didn't make any sense. I was relieved that despite not seeing the plane that I could still feel my parachute strapped heavily around my body. It felt snug, but that I guess that it would have been a lot worse if it were too loose. I looked around as I felt through the sky and finally pulled the cord that would undoubtedly save my life and my body hurtled back into the air for a moment. There should be someone right? I wasn't the only one that had to evacuate that plane on the way to an anime convention in London right?

I wake up breathing hard. My head is filled of half-remembered memories, mixed with terrifying (probably) fictitious images of Sebastian's true form. High heels and burning eyes. A face marked out by swirling darkness-- something horrible underneath, I know, but I just can't make it out-- all overlaying his sly smile. His knowing eyes and mocking tone.
In my memory, Sebastian's mouth curves up as though to smile, but then the tip of his tongue touches his lip. Decidedly (dangerously) slow, he licks his lower lip. As if contemplating the taste of something...
"You have made a great sacrifice in blood, pain and shame. The toll has been paid..." amusement where there should be none. "...so you may make a binding contract with me and grant your wishes-- or not-- by your own will." The words are low, and suggestive, like the quiet murmurings my mother used before, when she was urging me to bed. His actual words are like thistles sticking in my ears.

"Do you have a name?"
"Why? Do you? Why do you want to know? It doesn't work like a fairies name, but I am sure you know that."
"Well my name is Damir. And what the heck are you talking about?"
She sighed then, her tiny shoulders rising and falling with obvious irritation, "I mean you won't be able to control me or anything once you have my name. It doesn't work like that."
I felt my face grow hot, "I don't want to control you! I just wanted to know your name. You know, when you meet someone new you always ask their name. And now that you know mine, I was hoping that I could know yours."
"How would I know what that's like?" she muttered quietly, but before I could ask her what she meant she finished off with, "It's Talli."

I thought today was a dream. It started when I went down to check the mail. It was just more bills and junk mail; no mail from Sarah. I was a bit depressed till I saw Vanessa. She was coming in with some groceries and needed some help. I grabbed the door for her, like a gentleman, and helped her out.
After I carried her groceries we had a little talk in her little kitchen. I got her talking about things other than boyfriends, the party and or anything else that would make her upset. It worked.
She had a bottle of whiskey in one of the bags and the next thing I know we were laughing and having a good time. She even said, "She hasn't met such a funny and nice guy like me."
The whole time I was plotting about how I was going to kill Julie.

She's alive and I need to find her. I plan on heading back to my apartment tomorrow morning to pack up and get a flight ready.
I called Vanessa from my house phone. Vanessa was happy to hear from me and I was also happy to hear her voice. I felt so nervous to even call her. I felt my stomach get queasy before I even dialed her number. I'm glad I did. The sound of her voice made me forget about everything. We talked for about an hour and she asked me to meet her friends. Our relationship is growing pretty fast. I'm not sure how I can juggle two relationships. I have one with a loving angel and the other with a murderous hunger.
The hunger swims in circles in the back of my stomach. It's like a hungry shark contained in a huge fish tank swimming constantly in circles.

YoutopiaDriving along this old country road makes my mind wander, back to brighter days. This place seems so familiar to me, like an old memory I could only see through the haze of my subconscious. I glance in the rearview mirror and could have sworn I saw you sitting there. Riding in the back seat, looking out at the window in your shyness, glancing surreptitiously at me with a small smile lighting up your eyes that once enchanted me so much. The sunlight shone in through the window upon your face, the dust swirling around like millions of tiny fireflies, just waiting to be caught. I find myself smiling, reminiscing of days gone by. But I blink, and the vision is gone. I shake my head and keep driving. I know where I am now. We had been here before. Together. Before you left to a place where I couldn't follow.

We can be evil, but we are not demonic.
We are not Godly, though some might wish it.
We are only human, but no one will believe it.
I am myself, I am my own being.
I am not controlled, I am untamed and raging.
I am not normal, I am a freak; if you will.
I pride myself on this, I am not run of the mill.
I have some faults, as do we all.
But a few things I am a master of, as are we all.
We all have our fortés, our one special thing we're best at.
We are not Godly, but that doesn't mean we are any less than that.
We are all individuals, unique in our own way.
We are all good at one thing or another, we all have a perfect day.
We are not demonic or angelic, we are not Legion.
We are simply perfect in our imperfection; for we are human.
