FFM XShe has more books than friends. Even on her Facebook account.
Eleven are duplicated, four are autographed, nine are missing covers, and six are in languages she doesn't speak.
(Her books, not the friends, but one never knows.)
She's worked the same job for three years, saying that it will get her to bigger and better places. It took her three years to figure out that she can't see any places, let alone bigger or better ones.
She writes stories about sad little people like her, except she didn't realize that she was like all of them. She was different because she liked her job. She liked her job until she realized she didn't. And then she couldn't think of anything that set her apart.
She has more books than friends, and she collects them the way one might collect loose change. (Again, the books, not the friends.) She hasn't read all of them, and she doesn't even know that she will. She gathered them all up in order to make herself manic-pixie-dream-girl.
But now, she's a depressive-pi
I was reading a forum on Clay Aikon's recent admission (WE ALL FUCKING KNEW, CLAY). But a lot of them were like "REPENT, CLAY!"
So I wrote this.
This is as much of a satire about how crazy some religious people are, as it is about crazy gay people.

As of this moment of time, I have 70 favorites; and I gain another one every two or three minutes.
Give me your opinions, future readers: I'd like to hear. Even if you're just happening by it. Tell me. I'd like to hear. I may argue or tell you my opinion, but it is done in respect.
Thank you, everyone. Really.

HOLY SHIT GUYS.
PLUS 100 FAVORITES IN LESS THAN A DAY!?
Is it really that good?
I love you guys.
200 favorites. I never thought a writing piece of mine'd get 200 favorites. It boggles my mind.
Thank you, everyone, for supporting it. <3 It means a lot to me.
I'll update you on what happens further with this piece...when things happen to it. Hahaha.
After an alarming amount of comments regarding this, I thought I should address it.
Yes, there is a reference to satanism in this piece. This is a satirical piece.A satire is a piece of writing that makes fun of a problem in society. A good piece of satire will take a problem in today's society, blow it up or twist it around, and make it so ridiculous that it is blaring in our faces and begging for a reform.
Let's do an example together.
scenario: America is slowly becoming known as the fat nation of the world.
the gov't solution: Bans can possibly be placed on food industries as to what they are allowed to sell, and to whom they are allowed to sell their products to.
the satirical approach: the writer will spin a world where each food chain has a computer that has detailed records of everyone in the town. A person will enter and get DNA scanned; then their information will come up. The restaurant then picks out a meal for the person based on what they supposedly need (information that is based upon their weight at their last weigh-in and what their cholesterol levels are, etc).
It seems a bit ridiculous, doesn't it? [By the way, the gov't solution IS true, they were/are considering doing this.]
Anyway, my point is that this is supposed to be making fun of fundamentalist Christians in today's society. YES, many of them do shove their bibles down other peoples throats. But I know now that MANY of them are very nice people - so many people have commented apologizing for the wrongdoings of their colleagues. I thank you all for being so open.
If anyone is going to comment that "omg there is a satanic reference in this!! It confused me :C GAYS ARE NOT SATANIC!" then please...keep it to yourself.
Nobody ever said that all straight people were christians...but some of them are. So I had to reverse the roles. It was just too juicy an opportunity for some sarcastic humor. I couldn't pass it up.
I just wanted to mention that. Thanks for putting up with the ramble.
By the way...look up Kurt Vonnegut. He's definitely one of my biggest inspirations.
A year and 401 favorites later...thank you. I love you all. Nothing will ever be able to express how grateful and confused I am that this has gotten so much recognition.
Thank you. It means so much to me.
Woke up and checked my dA. Was convinced that dA had glitched.
Wow, a Daily Deviation!? I'm honored. I'm so glad that this dorky little short story has gotten so much recognition and appreciation. Much love to you all.
I'll have a lot of fun replying to the ~600 or so messages I've accumulated in the past few hours......
