REQUEST: Sleepover TimeIt is a peaceful day in the Land of Ooo. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and Finn and Jake are seen outside their Tree Fort, lying on the grass and looking up at the clouds. Jake begins looking back and forth between Finn and the sky. He then lets out a great sigh.REQUEST: Sleepover Time4 years ago in Romance More Like This
"This is freaking boring," he blurts out. "Why don't we go adventuring or something?"
"It's been pretty quiet all day," says Finn, who turns his head toward Jake. "No monsters to slay, no one in need of help, nothing."
"What about our friends?"
"Princess Bubblegum is at some stupid royal meeting, so LSP, all the princesses, and Marceline are probably all attending. What about hanging out with Lady Rainicorn?"
"Nope, she's visiting her parents in the Crystal Dimension. Why don't we head over to that royal meeting and make sure Ice King doesn't kidnap the princesses?" suggests Jake.
"Nah man, I saw him and some of the penguins heading to the docks. He said something about a fish market or something," replies Finn.

Have you ever had one of those weird impulses that seem to come from someone other than yourself? Like, when you're driving down the road and suddenly you just want to ram into the car next to you? Or when you have to stop yourself from screaming at the top of your lungs inside a library? Normally, you can control yourself, suppress it, and just go on with your day, right?
Now imagine if that impulse never went away If it just stayed in your mind and festered until you finally caved in, and the longer you tried to ignore it, the worse it got.
Now you know how I feel. Except in my case, it actually is someone else who keeps making me do these things.
Pfft, "these things." I'm helping you eat, Brandy. Everyone eats.
Yes, but at least everyone else gets to choose when they do it! And shut up, I'm talking now.

-Hey peeps!! The County Fairgrounds is in town!!
Here we are back to Hillport, Basin County, northwestern America, in the year 2035. About lunch time, Jessica breaks into the kitchen by the garden door, radiating anxiety. All because she saw the posters all around the city announcing another Annual Basin County Fairgrounds edition.
The event is one of the main attractions of the whole county, with amusement park, expos, lots of typical food, music presentations and a boxing fight night. One of it's main features is its facility size: a good bunch bigger than carnivals' average. It happens every year, in a selected weekend of summer, in one of the seven cities that compose the Basin County, by a rotation system. This year was again Hillport who would receive the big event.
-Sure thing! I heard even the Blue Angels will show up this year! - Said Charles.

"So it was an ex?" She said interrogating him.
"Oh, so if it WERE an ex you're implying you'd be jealous." He said inching closer to her.
"Jealous of what?!" she said guiltily.
"Like you don't know, you were about to kiss ME, and your saying you wouldn't be jealous?" She paused the game and looked straight at his, pretty close to hers, face and pecked him on the cheek, then smiled innocently.

Vinny practically ran all the way to the juke joint hoping and wondering if Dave would actually be there and stay true to his word. Her heart was beating fast not only from the running but because she was nervous about seeing him again.
' what if doesn't show up?' kept coming in and out of her mind before she finally reached her destination of the run down shack by the lake.
It looked even worse in the day time. With the bright hot sun beaming down upon it, one couldn't help but to wonder how it still stood.
Inside Dave sat at the piano wondering if Vinny would show. He knew he was a little early as he made a beeline from the school to here as soon as class let out. He was not only eager to play down here again, but of course to see Vinny as well.
Eustis the older and slender munk from the night before walked over to Dave, while nonchalantly puffing on a pipe.
" what ya'll doin' here again boy?" he asked gruffly while standing over the piano
Dave looked up at him.
The Fatal BlowThe first hint that she wasn't alone was the towering shadow that encompassed her as she looked down on the toxic, broken planet. It made the hairs on the back of her neck stand up, whether it was the defeat of the planet below her or the impending shadow surrounding her, she wasn't sure. In the blink of an eye her gun was out and she flew into movement. Her gun was aimed center-mass, but the dark shadow leapt into motion. With a heavy thud, she was forced against the cold, unforgiving transparent metal of the window. Her wrists were pinned with such force that reflex forced her to let go of the gun. With an echoing crash, it connected with the floor.The Fatal Blow2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Every sound rang in her ears. Blood pounded and a wordless yell that she realized was screeching from her own throat echoed through the ship. Listening closer she could hear something coldly familiar. A deep rasping, like the sound of a machine breathing.

I guess it's been about a year now, and I'm pretty sure they operate on a roughly five week loop, or what I call "the five." They just thoughtlessly repeat the last 35 days before they...died, I guess. It's hard to tell, since their bodies are as warm and fresh as the day I woke up to this ridiculous new world. They never starve, they never age, they just relive the five over and over for as long as it's physically possible. It took me a while to get over the crazies, of course, and I came close to killing myself countless times. At first, I held out hoping I might find someone else like me, someone else inexplicably spared. By the time I gave up, I realized I was having too much fun to care.
The loop isn't perfect, of course. Things wear down. Accidents happen. A lot of them are sitting in their broken-down cars, still pumping the pedals unless I intervene. T

Writing Tips: Avoiding Bad WorldbuildingOne of the first mistakes that a writer of speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, or supernatural horror) makes is front-loading every little bit of information of their world that they painstakingly made. One of the last mistakes that a writer of speculative fiction makes is giving stupid details of their world, unknowingly retconing things, and explaining things that don't need explaining because this usually ends their career or irreparably damages a franchise. Today's lesson is about "bad worldbuilding" because the hardest part of actually creating a fictional world is giving too much detail.Writing Tips: Avoiding Bad Worldbuilding6 months ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
This one is going to be different for different types of media. For example, most television shows have a build-as-you-go kind of feel (think Fairly Odd Parents), while a series of novels is usually planned out from the beginning. As an aside, if you're planning out an entire series of novels, make sure that at least the very first one can stand completely on its own to the point where

Whether it's their smile touching your lips
the breaths and hitches in their laugh
a melody that clambers or crawls through your mind
the beat of their hearts
the blur or clarity of their sight
the way their lips trail across your neck
the way they tell you they love you
It’s almost like a disease, a piece of their soul traveling on their breath and into your lungs. There, it becomes part of you. Even what you hate about them: how your father clears his throat after smoking a cigar or how an old friend would always quote bad movies. You can’t help but do it, too.
Because at least once in your life - whether for a moment or a lifetime - you loved them.
And love will break you down to your smallest piece and rebuild you up from there.
And you won’t realize that your sight has changed.
You won’t hear their voice on your tongue.
But it’ll always be there.

Bill Cruncks is quite an ordinary man, and tired of his life. He is 5'8", 40 years old, is 30 pounds overweight, has a silver-dollar-sized bald spot on the back of his head, and also has a full black beard, which he keeps trimmed short. His wife Eva is 5'0", 38, plump, with long past-her-shoulders red hair. Every day, he gets up in the morning, with black bags under his eyes (he has insomnia also), eats the breakfast consisting of a ham, egg and cheese omelet, or sometimes eggs, bacon and sausage, that his wife has fixed him.
He then gives his wife Eva a quick peck goodbye and leaves to go to his number crunching job, where he works at least 60 hours a week. His boss just loves to shout at him and tell him about the slightest thing he did wrong on any work he ever does, at any time the boss feels like it.

Living as an AsexualA lot of people have asked me a lot of questions about asexuality, and do you know what? That's a good thing, I'm glad people are asking questions. From someone who is asexual, the concept is kind of easy to grasp, but I'd imagine to allosexual (non-asexuals, which should just be "sexual people" imo) people, saying you don't want to have sex is like saying that you don't want to eat food. It's not abnormal, but it seems like a sign of something legitimately being wrong with that person. To tell you the truth, given the choice about being allosexual or asexual, I wouldn't know which I'd pick. They both seem to have a lot of advantages and disadvantages.Living as an Asexual1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
I am an asexual male. Particularly a sex-repulsed asexual male. Not all asexuals are sex-repulsed, but I am.

Now, let me be perfectly clear: I am not against people h
