Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by

Kaatie scoffed. She tugged on Brendons shoulder and pulled him towards her.
Dont tell me you dont feel it too. Then she just attacked him with her lips. He tried to pull away, to look at Ryan, to do something but she was like a vacuum and quite frankly, he couldnt escape.
Ryan stared in disbelief, upon entering he couldnt really tell who was Brendon but its not as if the lights were that dim. Besides, he knew his boyfriend, the quirky way he walked and just how many strands of hair managed to fall out even when he pushed it back with 5 tons of gel. And that puppy-dog look he just gave him sure gave away that it was Brendon he was smiling at. When he sees him lip locking with some girl, he cant believe it. He doesnt want to believe it, but truth be told its not like he can. This just wasnt Brendon. Maybe not s
RecessBrendon would just simply laugh whenever Ryan got a time-out for throwing spitballs at their third-grade teacher. It was funny how she never seemed to suspect that it was Brendon who was throwing the spitballs. What made it even funnier was that he was forced to wear the dunce hat while missing recess. Brendon would always peer into the classrooms window during recess. He would see Ryan slouched in a chair in a corner with a pen scratching away at a piece of paper. He would never once look up anywhere but at his paper. When the teacher would catch Brendon staring shed take away Ryans recess for tomorrow too but Ryan never seemed to care. He was never one for running around.Recess6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
One day in fifth grade Brendon invited Ryan to go trick-or-treating with him. Ryan was new to the idea of accepting candy from strangers but with hesitation he agreed. He wasnt expecting to get left at a mansion, the police bagged on him for a house and yard flooded with yolks. He never had

Brendon fumbled with his fingers, hanging off the steering wheel. Before he arrived at Ryans house he parked his car at a nearby empty driveway. He tried to calm himself because he wasnt ready for the task at hand, plus it was all so sudden. Out of nowhere he started to sweat abnormally and unbuttoned his white dress shirt. He took a deep breath and reassured himself that everything would be okay. He didnt know why he was so nervous, or at least that nervous, but he started up his car again and headed down to Ryans.
Brendon struggled to keep his fingers from shaking as he rang the doorbell, happily greeted by Ms. Ross. She looked a lot like Ryan, and her locks ran down to her shoulders gleaming in the light. The blue polka-dotted dress she wore and her full red lips made her seem like a 50s pinup girl, but she was beautiful nonetheless.

The unfamiliar alarm clock pierced Brendons ears; he fell asleep in his fathers bedroom. It took him a while to piece back the events of the night before, for a while he just thought it was a dream but then fragment by fragment he realized it wasnt.
He got out of bed franticly running his hands through his unruly hair. More memories flooded back to him and he realized that he had gotten home last night at midnight, he had the house keys because his mother gave him them before she left in the ambulance. What was worse is that now he remembered everything from the previous night and his mothers words still rang through his head, she said he was sick. Stop it James, youre sick! and what did she keep repeating that she knew? the last thing he recalled from last night was falling asleep in his fathers bed while wearing his wed

The grey walls of the school seemed to loom over Brendon as if they were mocking him. Usually he arrived to the school a little later, always making his grand entrance but not today. Today he came way before the first bell rang. He followed a forrest-like, wooded path to the back of the school where no one really seemed to notice. Except of course, there were some people who seemed quite surprised by his random appearance but they let it go as soon as they saw him nuzzle his nose against Ryans. Whether they were surprised or not no one said anything, after all they didnt want the same fate as Juan.
They walked to class together-holding hands. They didnt care who saw them, Brendon was the least worried if anyone saw in fact. He had already gotten used to all the pointing and giggling when he was the all-star jock. There was one difference this time around though, the pointing

A rhythmic tapping was the only thing that seemed to keep Ryan awake during philosophy class. His own slender fingers banging down on the oak wood of the old furnished desks drowned out the droning professor ranting about life. Sometimes he wondered why he had taken such a class, at one point he might have been desperate to find the meaning of life but some old haggard surely wasnt going to know the answer as to why we were put on Earth.
Mr. Lunsy, do you believe in faith? A chalky, egotistic boy in the back of the room yelled. Ryan took notice that his college professor who seemed to constantly brag about being the wisest man alive, hesitated.
Why, thats preposterous boy! This world is strictly a matter of scientific belief, if faith existed wed have answers.
The professor went back to droning and the enthusiastic boy took a seat, his smile faltering. Ryan went back to zoning
Peterick Ch.1 Best FriendsI held my hand around the neck of my bass a little tighter than usual due to the stress that I was put under. Not only did Ashlee think that I was cheating on her with Lindsay Lohan, but Patrick was undressing on the other side of the room to change out of his sweaty stage clothes. He was just in his boxers now, and forced myself to look away, sitting on the old couch in our dressing room. He began to towel off the sweat, and normally I would joke about it, but tonight I was sweating a bit myself. "What's up, Pete? You look nervous." He asked, reaching for his clean pants that were hung over the back of a chair. "Nothing. Just Ashlee drama." I sighed and pulled my knees up to my chest, feet resting on the edge of the seat. "Don't worry. I mean, what would give her the idea you were cheating on her with Lindsay? I mean, ew. It would be okay if she actually thought more of you but..." "I know, right? I think she's coming here tonight, though, as a surprise ambush. She heard Lindsay wouldPeterick Ch.1 Best Friends7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"Can...You....Promise me something...Well, Me and Patrick?"
"What?!" Patrick asked, shooting a confused glance at his boyfriend. "Why am I involved?"
"It regards 'us'. babes..."
"Oh. Fair enough...If yah need me, I'll be getting dressed..." Patrick turned and faced away, struggling to pull his t-shirt back on over his head.
"Sure- what is it?" Andy smiled, casting both of them an understanding look.
"Don't tell the fans...We want to in our own time...."
"Yeah..Please, Andy?" Patrick';s speech was muffled, and he turned, his head still hidden by the collar of the t-shirt. He pulled it down over his head, smiling broadly. Pete smiled lovingly at him, and Patrick returned the warm facial expression

The next morning had come, bright and dreary. Brendon awoke to his lethargic, melancholy state. He got out of his bed and ran over to the room that was next to his. Shaking, he uncovered the patient that was there but to his dismay, it was only a cranky geezer screaming for the nurse.
Nurse?!!! NURSE!!!! Theres a madman in my room!! NURSEEE!!!!!!
Mr. Chiles, calm down, your blood pressure is already high enough.
But he- Before he could finish his sentence he collapsed back onto the bed and continued snoring. The nurse came over to Brendon who just stood there, still awestruck.
And where do you belong? The nurse was kind of pretty, long blond hair and green eyes. She seemed compassionate but she also seemed like one of those people who felt they ruined their lives and now by working at a hospital believed they could fix all their sins.
Peterick Ch.4 EngagementI felt Ashlee's eyes on me every second, her death-stare burning a hole into the side of my face. As we played, everyone else seemed relaxed, but there was something in the air that kept me tense and robotic. "Come on dude, loosen up!" Joe chimed, noticing. "Yeah dude, you alright?" Andy asked, looking concerned. "I'm fine." I replied, trying to add a note of enthusiasm. Patrick avoided my looks and grabbed the tuner of the table, proceeding to tune a perfect note. He was nervous, just as he had been when we first met all those years back. He had shown up in a sweater vest and dress pants, his little nerdy smile putting everyone at ease. I was pulled into the present when Ashlee's arms wrapped around me, sensing what everyone else had already caught on to. If she wasn't so drunk I would tell her... I would tell her, and I would tell Patrick, and everything would be good for once. But she was drunk, and I'm sure Patrick didn't want to hear what I wanted to say.

The skies were painted a dim pink with little bursts of bright light protruding from the airy grey clouds. Brendon took advantage of the view as he tried to keep his eyes on the road. His stomach lurched but he tried to ignore it as best as he could, the leftover pizzas last night certainly didnt help the situation. For once in his life he felt that he had something to live for, or rather someone. He couldnt really describe this feeling, but it felt good-not just the warm melted chocolate cookie taste on a frosty night good, but something intense, passionate and yet so gently graceful at the same time.
He made his way to the schools parking lot, for once hed arrived rather early. Checking one last time to make sure he had all his school supplies, he locked his car and took a deep breath awaiting the impact of the icy dawn air. There were barely any people arriving at the sch
