The Tragedy of the StickertreeOnce upon a time, there was a tree. The tree was special, and it was alone. It lived with its mundane brethren and watched life parade around it. In its youth birds tried alighting in its branches, but they did not stay, and in time no animal came near the tree. One day, a young woman came to the glen by accident, for it was in an obscure place, and no man had been there and cared enough to tell of it. She spied the tree, the special tree, and sat beneath it; she let go a heavy breath and slept beneath it. When she awoke, she felt as though a whole night's sleep had filtered through her, and she returned home, light as down on the breeze.The Tragedy of the Stickertree8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
For years, the woman would come under the tree to rest. She was a teacher, she was, at a schoolhouse nearby; and though she was gentle, she was under great stress, for the children were an unruly bunch. She was glad to live a spartan life, for it was her dream to t

We are never alone. We are never solitary. Always under the eye of something. Teachers. Bosses. Spouses. Parents…yeah, especially parents. It might not be such a bad thing if my mom and dad gave a shit about me. My mom especially…threw me and my brothers in the woods to die because they didn't have enough money…
Not once, but twice. Dear old mom's idea…"Hi Tom. I love you son. Would you mind staying in the woods with your brothers for a little while? We'll be right back."
Even when you're not watched by those, we are led to believe we are under the eyes of an angry god.
But now not even god can see through these walls. I'm at the end of the world. The point of no return. If this place were on a map, it'd probably say "Here there be dragons" or something like that.

The Forum According to Curran
Creation- or the First
In the beginning, there was nothing.
Then, there was more nothing.
Then there was someone's dog, but it went away really fast with our slipper.
And there then was still nothing.
Then there was a great blank stare.
The Great Blank Stare loomed over the blank, gray-green world and decided that something had to come. It took him three days. Well, we SAY it took three days, but who is to say what time is to the Great Blank Stare. To it, there was no day, par se. So let's just say it took a certain amount of time of random thoughts going in and out of its orange head for the decision to be made. Having decided, it then set to work creating the realm of Forum, and the many nations and inhabitants to populate it.
First were the Forums, many in number and layered like the frosting on a bundt cake. The Deviants realm, with its wild growth and cycle of life and death. The fiery and dangerous lands of Complaints, where only the stou

Im sitting here alone and unmoved, trying to laugh myself to sleep. Its been a day, hasnt it? The old mans heart still beats steadily within him and his eye still haunts me. The rain pitter patters on the window sill and I start to think. How could this have happened? I was so stealthy and wise with my actions. I did it fearless and sane but still, they do not believe me. Im not insane. No, never! I was merely doing what any person would. I took the life of an innocent man who carried an evil present from Satan. I did a good deed. A good deed in deed.
I remember like it was yesterday. I wandered the streets in the rain much like today. My coat over my head. I held it with one hand up and the other carrying a bag with six apples and one potato. I was rushing towards the very house that the old man had taken me to. I was sixteen and my mother had died of pneumonia and my father left when I was you

I miss you now. Believe it or not, I really do. I guess I should of missed you then, as well. I saw the hints, I recognized the clues, and still, I bound you to me, to this connection, with all of my strength; You always knew, or at least you always thought, that I was weak, though, didnt you? You thought my heart was a house, you came and moved in, and you left no space for me. I really think you did the best that you could, and after you'd tried your best, you left. But were you really satisfied?
Can your remember when I was in your arms, and you were in my arms? And even when your mother bitched, and your father swore, and friends teased, and tried their best to break us apart each injury at a time, we were calm in the chaos, the eye of the hurricane, keeping our peace just by staying close.
This city is dead without you. My heart hurts. It hurts. It hurts. It hurts. Did you hear me last night? I was standing for hours outside your house, staring at the sky looking for you bet

Namine had a mega crush on him, and she was way too shy to talk to him, even when he was talking to Kairi. She watched as he score a goal against the opposing team-the winning goal, too!
"Yes! Kairi! He did it! He won the first game! Yes! Yes!" Kairi cheered happily as everyone cheered for their team. Kairi sighed, but smiled to her friend. It was hard for Kairi to be like this when she, too, really liked Sora. She could see Riku, Tidus, and Sora where coming their way, too.
"I'm not surprised in Sora at all..." she said looking out to him. Namine was oblivious in noticing her friend's admiration for Sora, too. She had always liked him. He was so kind to her, and although it was hard for her to talk to him, she had already decided to ask him to the dance later that night. If all went well according to plan... then Namine would be Sora's girlfriend in no time
