Swallowing LiesIt slides down my throatSwallowing Lies2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like silver mercury
Lies are easily swallowed
Now that I can stomach them
But they won't be inside for long
In a few minutes, they'll be flushed away
Comes up almost as easy as it slides down
I'll swallow the lies
But they won't eat me alive anymore
MonstersWhite turns to pink,Monsters2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Pink flows to red,
White peeks from underneath
Buried in the white
Is a river of purple
At a glance the line
Looks like a bruise
Under my flesh
But I know what it is
A pathway, living under my skin
Feeding oxygen to my fingertips
Breathe in, breathe out
I close my eyes
Imagine life different
See a smiling face
Dancing in rays of sun
A smile forms on my lips
It lingers for a moment
But it is a lie
So I give it up
Here alone, on my own,
No prying eyes,
I don't have to fake it.
Letting the red flow
It drips of my fingertips
They're getting less oxygen now.
I walk to the mirror
Looking in my eyes
I see the truth
I don't know what's in there.
List of Random Magical SpellsList of Random Magical Spells4 years ago in Settings More Like This
REMEMBER: A "Good" author, or even a "Great" one, does their best to be unique with their ideas for a magical universe, and avoids God-moding (aka, where a character is impossible to defeat, despite little training, etc etc.) A "Wise" author ALSO remembers, that every spell can be counter-attacked, or canceled all together, with another one. Spells are an endless cycle of attack and counter-attack, start and cancel, and many can, like medicine, have a greater, or worse, effect, if combined.
Now then, this list contains spells that I myself came up with. They are not Harry Potter spells, so please look elsewhere for those. If you have a unique spell that you are fine with others using for any reason, without credit to you, feel free to leave it in the comments section!
Likewise, these spells are for use of ANYone, with NO credit needed, to be used in ANY means they desire; books, comics, fanfics, etc etc. However, I would still recommend coming up with a uniq

He quickly poured the tea from the pot into the china cup, careful not to spill not even one tiny drop. Setting the now full teacup on the tray along with the pot, he picked it up and began his journey to the sitting room.
'Okay, only a few more days....Then the real England will be back' he thought cheerfully, walking quickly through the halls. All too soon, he reached his destination.
Entering the room, he was fast to place the tray onto the sitting table.
" Here you go sir....." he said, bowing in respect. Britannia simply nodded his head as he picked up the teacup. Placing it to his lips, his eyes widened in anger as the liquid reached his mouth. Slamming the cup down, he glared at the young colony.
" THIS IS NOT EARL GREY!!!" he snapped. The child paled, knowing what was going to follow.
Britannia had no sooner reached for the whip at his side, when young America sped out of the room.

Dead at 16My worries are a reservoirDead at 162 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her worries are a lake
In that they’re very real indeed
Whereas mine are very fake
Invented to seek attention
Lies, oh despicable lies
One day I’ll drown in metaphors
Please be sure to sympathise
But while you show me this concern
Who'll be looking out for her
Blood curdling screams from my mouth
She is nil by mouth and verse
I have cried wolf so many times
She can’t even cry her own tears
My lies are spun in silk cobwebs
My spinneret shrouding your ears
I spoon fed you daily doses
So it was easier to digest
I planted those seeds of sorrow
Your fertile mind did the rest
Lies, all those despicable lies
What ever could be more obscene
Perhaps a girl that no one heard
Who was found dead at age sixteen

I know you would.

and I can't promise
I won't do it again.
I'm broken down,
and not very pretty

so if you knew everything else
you would think twice
I know almost certainly.
For why have someone that is
broken and insecure
when you can have
someone with less problems?
why go after me,
when there's someone better?
who has no scars,
who has not hurt their family.
someone that is not damaged.

you would think twice
about liking me

Perhaps some words are better unsaid
I hear the devils in my mind tossing those words around and slamming them in to my skull as if they're made of steal than just fragile harmless letters
It's such a mystery to me that there isn't even a crack in place .
When it actually feels like every bone within me is shattered
Oh those words.. To keep them all locked inside is slowly breaking me apart
I want to scream on top of my lungs
Yell at this cursed life that has chosen me to suffer
Have I done something wrong to deserve this torment?
How can I redeem myself?
Or have I already been sentenced to suffer forever alone?
Great wonderful amazing things perhaps only happen once in a life time
I feel like I'm warped in pleasure for not having to believe in that fairytale anymore
Yet it kills me everyday not to believe in such a thing

Gently, you tugged the strap of your shoulder bag back to its proper place, only for it to start slipping again.
“Damn it” the young woman muttered. This is how it was the entire walk back to your dorm, a balancing act between the stack of books and not having them be knocked out of your hands. Luckily you lived on campus, something required for all undergraduates and one of the main reasons you had picked this college, as living off campus in the middle of Chicago was a pretty risky move.
Bumping against the door, you managed to pull your keys out of your back pocket and get them into the door just as Julia swung the door inwards and hugged you, causing your arm to be yanked downwards as your bag fell.

Both stood at the same time as the look faded and walked briskly to the entrance of the Great Hall, and that was when Ginny knew Harry was with them. She hadn't spoken to him since he shooed her from the Room of Requirement, hadn't stopped thinking about him since a funny feeling went through her while searching the grounds, hadn't stopped wanting to hold him since she saw him in Hagrid's arms.

Ludwig's voice came out as a croak. " we were ambushed during a territory patrol."
"Ambushed?! By who?!" You snapped, voice high pitched with anxiety as you stroked Gilbert's silken head gently. He stirred slightly, eyes fluttering beneath his eyelids, but that was the only response he gave. Other than that, he lay limp in his brother's arms.
"By cloaked figures " Ludwig said slowly, arms trembling slightly. For a moment you wondered if it was because Gilbert was too heavy, but then you remembered that the younger of the two brothers was practically a body builder on top of being a wolf Shifter. And when you looked up at his face, you were shocked to see tears shining in the corners of his eyes.

Both men had it hard enough in their lives, both of them for completely different reasons. Francis was pansexual, meaning he doesn't care about gender or such to show him to love. His son Matthew was a complete mistake, the mother didn't want anything to do with the boy and handed custody over to him. Although he loved his son dearly.
Around the same time, Arthur was forced into a marriage, his parents not wanting their son to be known as a homosexual. His son, Alfred, was born a few days after Francis' Matthew. Alfred's mother turned out to be abusive, hurting the child. Arthur filed for a restraining order, custody of his son and a divorce on the same day and quickly won custody of the poor child.

Cosplay Tips and TricksTip 1 - Wigs!Cosplay Tips and Tricks5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Always try and get the best looking wig for your character! If you've gone to all that effort with your costume it's honestly in your best interest to get a wig that looks good to complete the look. You don't need to break the bank if you don't want to, and don't worry if you aren't the best stylist out there! Just make sure that it's the same colour as your character and vaguely resembles their hair style and it will instantly look so much better than using your own hair if it looks nothing like the character you're trying to portray. Make the effort and you won't regret it!
Tip 2 - Putting on a wig!
Ok! So one of the best things to make wearing a wig easier is to wear a wig cap underneath the wig - this helps to hold all of your hair in neatly underneath the wig and will also help to hold the wig on more securely. You can either buy a premade wig cap or go for the slightly cheaper option of cutting the legs off a pair of ti
