She nods, utterly terrified. She cringes as the ice under her feet cracks again under her skates. In a matter of seconds, he has pulled her away from the breaking ice of the lake, but now he is standing over it himself. Neither of them notices until it gives way with a sound like a gunshot and he disappeared before her eyes.
“JACK!” she screams. Wiping away the barely-there dusting of snow on the ice, she looks desperately for him underneath.
She sees what she has seen a hundred times before: her brother being dragged deeper into the pond by his heavy cloak. And like the other hundred times, there is nothing she can do.
She jerks awake with a shrill scream that brings her mother to her bedside in a second.
“Jenny? It’s all right, darling, I’m here.”

Sometimes throughout the day you remember last night, wishing that Jack Frost was there so you can tell him the truth about the dream, which you are starting to think is more was more of a vision. Pitch was there. He was in your dream. And you didn’t like it one bit.
You sigh and glance at the clock 12:00 midnight, and it turned out to be much cooler than it was in the daytime. You close your book that you were reading and open the window. You look around and don’t see a soul.
Suddenly you hear a whinny and see a small black NightMare gallop past. You hear a cackle of laughter and you flinch. You see Jack Frost jump from a nearby roof and fly over to you.
“Jack what’s going on?” you ask.

Kisses in the Dark[Oneshot] Jack has been feeling something for Pitch that's more than friendship. Tired of keeping it a secret, he decides to confess, not with words, but through action.Kisses in the Dark2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
''Jack, you're doing it again.''
The white haired boy's eyes widened in surpise. ''What?''
''You're staring at me again, it makes me uncomfortable.'' Pitch responded.
''Oh, sorry.'' Jack apologized.
It had been some time since Pitch's defeat and Jack had developed the habit of visiting him every chance he got. He didn't know why, but he did. The other guardians were a little concerned at first, but with Pitch in his weakened state he wasn't considered a threat to the children of the world anymore. Thus, they let Jack do as he pleased.
During these visits, Jack and Pitch had grown close to one another. Pitch had, at first, rejected the other's company, but he soon found himself missing Jack when he was away. Thus, a friendship bloomed and the odd pair became inseparable.
Lately, Jack had been staring at Pitch, specifica

“You and Jack Frost? What an idea. Why would he choose you, when there are other girls that would give anything for even the slightest chance of meeting him?” Pitch says and laughs. “Doesn’t make much sense to me”
“He- he loves me!” You say, barely getting the words out.
“You?” Pitch asks. “ You can dream. But a dream can become your worst nightmare. You feel a cold silence fall over the room but then you hear Jack Frost laughing at you, but you also hear Pitch’s own laughter echoing throughout the room.
You feel terrified and almost feel like crying. The laughing getting louder and louder, you fall to your knees and shout “ No! Go away!”

It was horrible to hear, impossible to fathom. With every shaking breath, a cry of immeasurable loss issued from her lips. Her entire body was quaking, and her listless wings shimmered like teardrops in the shifting candlelight. In either hand she held two small, bejeweled cylinders. Each cylinder had an exclusive image of a child’s smiling face painted on one end, and was flattened on one side to form a sort of decorative door. On the ground before her, in three rows of five and one row of three, lay eighteen other cylinders. The small, circular cases shone in the flickering light, and as Tooth glanced up briefly to look upon each memento, a fresh wave of anguish overtook her and she once again succumbed to weeping.
Not one of the other Guardians could console her. They, too, were wracked with sorrow, for twenty children... twenty precious, unique, wonderful children... were dead.
North’s great shoulders shook, caving inwards, bearing a weight of gri
They Say You Die TwiceThe Guardians knew they didn’t have very long.They Say You Die Twice1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
The event they’d all been dreading for months was near, no matter how long they had tried to prolong it. All four original Guardians had put forth effort to stop it, to help him get believers once more, to spread awareness of his spirit and fun through their own believers…
But he knew it wasn’t going to last.
Jack sat quietly in the globe room, tired and breathless as more and more of his power disappeared. His whole body had started to become numb a couple of hours ago, any previous ache he’d had from sitting on the hard stone table long gone now. His staff was resting next to him, standing up without his support as he knew he wouldn’t be able to give it soon. Part of him wondered what would happen to it when he was gone, if it would suddenly crumble from its age, or if it would last on, a reminder and keepsake for the others.
He hoped it was the latter.

The other guardians remained silent as they looked at the sleeping white-haired one lying in the bed. The Queen Toothiana was kneeling right beside him, squeezing his hand as if he would disappear in any second; Bunny was across from her, glaring at him so intensely as if the boy would awake by keep doing so; and Sandy, he was missing, in the exact moment they had put Jack in bed, he left the room.
They were worried, it was a fact.
That day, the Guardian of Fun had left Santoff Claussen to bring some snow in the other parts of the world he had 'forgotten' the past decades… (some mountain-tops here and there, some southern islands, some natural-cold places without snow) Knowing how hyper and eager Jack could get, it didn't seemed quite estrange that he didn't get back early, after all, he never did.

Ten Commandments of Writing1. Have an original plot.Ten Commandments of Writing5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
If every book was the same, we'd get bored with them pretty quick. Variety is what gives that special spice. Try to come up with a story that's entirely your own. If your work is based off another work, however loosely, make sure you use your own style. Don't just repeat what someone else has already written. Nobody likes a copycat, and you could face an unpleasant lawsuit that way.
2. Have a good title.
If you want people to read your book, you'll need a title that will catch their eye. Make it exciting, but keep it brief, too. Don't make your title so long that it wears the reader down. Try to stay within the limit of ten words. If you have trouble inventing a title, go through your story and decide what the main theme is, what it is in that story that really stands out.
3. Make your characters as believable as possible.
The characters are what make the story a story. You learn about them, sympathize with them, and hate them.

All right, well, here we goA one-question Mary Sue Test. No 100 questions, 1,000 interpretations, very little math. Pretty cool, neh? Well, if you're taking a Mary Sue Test, there's only one question to be asked.
Here it is, the only question you need when wanting to figure out if you're writing a Mary Sue, and how to fix it (probably):
1. Why are you taking something called the Mary Sue Test in the first place?
Here, let me elaborate on that. Why are you here? Let's think about that. If you're just taking this for fun, you guys can either hang out or head out; this is meant in particular to those who were earnestly seeking a test to help make their character better (not that taking something in fun isn't something wrong, just giving you guys a heads up). And if you landed here by random chance, well, hey, you're as welcome as anyone else to stay and read, too.

Writing Tips: Writing for Kids (7-11)Well, you guys wanted it, you got it. Speaking of that, a specific writing tips on almost any topic you want is a patreon reward.Thirteen people are already entitled to one of these, and seven more can be. I think only one person asked for one to be done. But other than that, I'm going to shoot down one of the most requested topics ever: how to write for children without talking down to them. Not to be confused with how to write children, which is an entirely different topic that requires its own article. As tempting as it is to say just don't talk down to kids, there's more to it. There are specific things you need to do to appeal to kids. After all, kids probably won't be interested in a movie like Waking Life or a book like War and Peace, despite their merits. Also keep in mind that adults do enjoy things like Gravity Falls or Harry Potter. A good children's story appeals to people of all ages, but it doesn't exactly work the other way.

Whoever had invented the idea in terms of it being a "fun way to pass the time" was a complete and utter idiot.
Stumbling around on the surface of a frozen lake on too-tight for comfort ice skates that squeezed and pinched your feet in the most uncomfortable way as you waddled around like a penguin was not your idea of fun. It was the complete opposite. It was horrendous, absolutely exhausting, humiliating, and just completely and utterly a waste of your valuable time.
Then again, being that you had moved out to the middle of nowhere right when winter had decided to kick in, it wasn't like you had anything better to do.
You sighed as you plopped down on the lake's edge, which was covered with a thick blanket of snow, and stretched out your aching feet with a groan.

This Art Is ShitIf I knew then what I knew now, maybe I might have appreciated my work a little more.This Art Is Shit5 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
I always used to compare myself to the other artists that I would see, artists much older than me, with the training and the experience I didn't have. It didn't seem to matter to me where they came from, just that they where good and I was not. If I had understood at the time that someday, with perseverance, study and practice that I too might be ask good as them, maybe I might have worked a little harder, studied a little more and not been so down on myself.
Now I look back on a lot of the artists who were my idols, megabytes worth of their art saved to my ancient drive in the basement for reference and inspiration. I realize, they really weren't that good. Some of them were actually quite bad. At any given time, if your art sucks to you or even thousands of other people, it is amazing to someone and you are inspiring someone else by sharing it with them.
