Fate?Why the hell am I hereFate?5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where silence SHRIEKS and SCREAMS
And invades every one of my dreams?
I use to have hopes and goals
And now I just breathe and desperately hope
To make it through another day and not choke
But there is no peace in my life
I have nowhere to go, nowhere to hide
Have found that friends are enemies and all have lied
I wish to be set free
I run screaming down the snow-encrusted street
But there is nothing there and no one do I meet
God! I scream! Do you not see me here?
What did I do to deserve such torment and hate
Was I born simply to fulfill this fate????

Sanity stretched by impossible strain
That moment standing at the fork in the road
Knowing that neither will lighten the load
This way says hatred with a deceptive smile
Dancing and beckoning with devious guile
Come this way says corruption with a crude leer
Promising sweetly that you have nothing to fear
With a laugh of pure bliss you sink to your knees
Death smirks, knowing you always do as you please

They will never be the same.
These haunted spirits who know too well the things they've see.
The darker days have come to be.
When Happiness cause pain.
You know you can not smile to joy or laugh through that rain.
when our spirits are lifted we feel insane.
Because happiness is done this day.
They look back and can not see the way forward.
They see ahead because they can't remain in the present
I pull a breath and scream,"it is not the same"
When Contentment is dull and the living is easy.
The world hasn't change, the sun raises and the birds sing, but things will never be the same. Nothing pleases me, the world feels dull and my mouth struggles to speak, because nothing will be the same, since I lost you.

As the days passed, you found that it was very hard for you to believe that Matthew had turned from a tiny baby into a full grown man in such a short amount of time. Only a few years had gone by, and he had gone from being able to fit comfortably in your arms to exceeding you in height by just a few centimeters. You often lay in bed wide awake at night, thinking about how your life had changed so quickly and what was going to happen to you and Matthew within the next few months. You remembered how miserable and stressful your life had been before you found him in the woods. Back then, he seemed so small, so helpless and frail. You remembered how he slept with you, how you fed him, took care of him like a real mother. You had felt happiness, as if your life actually had a purpose that didn't involve staying up every night finishing work for your boss. But now, now that Matthew was fully grown and able to take care of himself, it seemed that he was a million miles away, even though he st

I couldn't help but smile as Al ate the last slice of the apple pie, I had made the right decision two years ago. He had reached his goal, to be able to eat apple pie and I had reached mine, to reunite his soul with his body he longed for without using anyone else. Who needs alchemy when they have such great family and friends like I do? Alchemy played a purpose in my life; to please mum, to make her happy for the last few years of her life. And even though we went out of our boundaries with it, we learnt from our sins and kept walking forward. And I know that mum is out there, with dad watching over us crying tears of joy together.
"Brother I've been thinking " Al told me, his voice shaking. "What if instead of just sitting here in the country, we move around like before helping others?" I let out a faint smile.

Interview with Endling
Welcome to ASKtheARTIST. My name is *thefluffyshrimp and today I have the great privilege to interview `Endling, an incredibly talented comic artist and creator of many of your favorite series on deviantART.
Thank you for presenting us with this opportunity to interview you, Endling.
Hey all you folks there in AtAChat! Go ahead and start posting questions now.
Thanks for having me Fluff!
I warn everyone I'm on my second triple espresso coffee of the day. If my answers are incoherent and/or jittery you'll know why. I'M WIRED TO GO.
*RedVenture asks "How did you get started doing art, Endling?"
When I was little, my dad would bring home paper from his job. He worked with computers and stuff and often had tons of it lying around, so I'd make use of it and draw. (With his permission. Occasionally.) After a while he noticed I had a habit of doing this. Usually robot caterpillars. I'm not kidding

Interview with `loish
~MemoiresDuneFille asks "Loish, what inspired you to become an artist?"
I can't say that anything specific really inspired me. It was more a natural progression. I have been drawing since I was very young and honestly do not remember when I even started doing it, but I do remember always enjoying it and seeing it as my 'talent' throughout elementary and middle school. By the time I had to make a career choice in high school, I decided to do pursue it professionally because I just couldn't stand dividing my time between schoolwork and making my personal drawings. It was torture! So I felt I had to do it in order to stay sane :] That's pretty much how it went!
*merry-zazoue asks "You're doing both animation and illustration, how can you manage to have a good level in both? I'm an animation student and I love illustration too, do you have any advices? Aside working like crazy of course! I'm already doing it ^^"

Why are you taking so long?
Did something go wrong?
Are you off sharpening your scythe?
Come back; you left my life
The medication isn't helping.
I need you to end my yelping.
Scrape the screams from inside my head,
Hover over me as I sleep in bed.
You've become my first priority.
I beg you to listen to my small minority.
We need to have a short conversation.
Please help me end this starving temptation.
Oh Death, you must come back.
End my life with just one whack.
Smirk as they slam the coffin door,
And treasure my soul for evermore.
An Intro to The LibraryAn Intro to The Library2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Six years ago the Greater Altalamatox Public Library put its small and remote home city on the map when it spilt out of the ether and onto the shores of its lake.
It's a building with a lot of history. Once part of a prestigious campus, it was last owned by a club of gents with a shared passion for illegal spellcraft and dimensional exploration, who used it to hide their howling voids into the cosmos and also their pointy hats and anything else they didn't want their wives to find. They never did accomplish discovery of a new world- or never had the satisfaction of knowing they did- but did manage one highly impressive feat which was to tuck the Library sideways between dimensions when the police came 'round to investigate. This was about a hundred and ten years ago.
The gentlemen, after their prison terms ended, never succeeded in summoning back the building. To that end they'd have to have known where it lay nearest to this world, and to their distress they were witne

A ripping sound was heard, and there you were, rubbing your sore rear in the bathtub. You just finished relaxing from a bubble bath, and stood up to unplug the drain. Unfortunately, you slipped and your reflexes cause you to grab your pineapple-patterned shower curtains, ripping half of them apart. "Aaarrrgghhh!" You groaned. Now you had to buy new shower curtains. Lazily, you lifted your bum off the bath tub, and dried your body and (h/c) (h/l) hair using a (f/c) plaid towel.
You put on a purple tank top and a pair of black skinny jeans. You wore a black jacket to shield your skin against the freezing cold. With that, you grabbed your bag, and started driving your car to the nearest Home Depot, in search for shower curtains.
You finally found the one you like, a (f/c) one with white snowflake prints on it. You ran to an empty line, and a tall man went after you. &

I had been thinking about the troubling philosophical issue regarding the hypothetical teleportation device that uses quantum entanglement to instantaneously transfer data, then uses that data to exactly replicate the individual in the new place and simultaneously destroy the original. The new copy is like a twin with all the same memories of the original, right up to the event of the teleportation, creating a perfect illusion of transportation to everyone, including the replicant, who would have first person memory of the lifetime of the original and therefore believe himself to be the original. The only party for whom this fax machine from hell fails is the original, who is stifled by nonexistence.
So how can one be certain of this tragic flaw without experiencing it fi

Irken Mentality and Body Language
Even though it seems the species are essentially a galactic enslavement force, the Irkens possess a strong sense of loyalty to anyone who can earn their trust; the problem is that due to the long lifespan of this race, there are only a few others who can live long enough to earn said trust – as such, most of them have undoubtedly heard of the Irken Empire and declared war against them due to the ruthless drive they have for conquest. Regardless, any Irken individual’s first loyalty is to the Empire, being the Tallest, Collective and the Triumvirate; despite this, however, the individual rarely receives the same loyalty in return. Since the Triumvirate have immediate an

Dib’s hurried pace soon slowed to a steady walk as he got closer to Zim’s base. He delayed getting there as he was both afraid and nervous of what he may find here. He actually started to second guess if this was the best thing to do, but he arrived before he knew it. Once it were visible across the road from him, Dib stopped and stared at it for a short time. He drew in a deep breath, whispering unsure words of encouragement before starting closer towards it.
Zim's base looked pretty similar on the outside, except for where his gnomes keeping his house protected had been destroyed. Though, it did seem to have an eerie aura around it which was something that hadn’t been present in the past.
Dib had made it to the front door now, staring upon it as if there were something fairly interesting about it. In reality, he was just preparing himself for what he was sure would be a quite shocking sight. Finally, he pushed the door open and flicked on the lights wi
