I eventually awaken to the sight of my darkened bedroom. The curtains are open a crack, and faint moonlight spills through the gap. Wait, moonlight? The sun’s set already?! I sit up, duvet still rapped around me to protect me from the cold of my apartment. That’s one problem with this apartment; a lack of double glazing windows and student income means in the evenings, and the central heating is turned off to save money, it can get very cold very quickly. Does that mean I’ve slept all the way through the afternoon? I glance at my alarm clock; display reading 19:05. I’ve slept for 5 hours?! Dammit! I lie back on the bed, rubbing my eyes to rid them of sleep. I might as well get myself something to eat, I think with a sigh, pulling myself back up into a sitting position. My body protests, wanting only for me to fall back asleep, despite the 5 hours of rest I’ve already had. Why am I so tired? I wonder; I could quite easily

This story was inspired by a fantastic picture by Leila Stoat, which can be seen here: The Curious Case of the Neon Caterpillar.
This is my first story in seven years, so let me know what you think - enjoy!
Deep within the woods, miles from any permanent civilization, a place known only to campers, fisherman, hikers, and bears - lived a tiny little caterpillar. Unlike most yellow and black varieties that inhabited the area, this tiny little fellow shone bright with highlight of pink and green, and remained well hidden and invisible to the people that enjoyed the ambiance of his woodland home.
The tiny caterpillar enjoyed his solitude and privacy, but was fascinated by the strange gatherings that would sometimes take place near his home. Strange, wonderful creatures, tall, colourful things walking on two legs, carrying glowing sticks with two arms, would sometimes conve

I stare at the box before me, anticipation flowing through my veins, making it a challenge to even stand still. I’ve been waiting for this package for nearly two months; and now, the night before Halloween, it finally arrives. Seriously, I’d been wondering whether it’d get here on time for the costume party tomorrow, or if I’d just spent $300 on something that I wouldn’t be able to wear for another year. I’ve really wanted to go to this costume party, partly because everyone I know is going to be there, and secondly because there is a big costume competition; whoever has the best costume receives $500! That’s not something to be ignored. The party is being held at some rich girl’s house on the opposite side of town; I don’t really know her myself, but she’s inviting everyone who goes to the same college as her. That includes me, as well as about 800 or so other people if they choose to. However, now the costume’s here, I

“It’shereit’shereit’shereit’shereit’shere!” Alice screamed, running in the door of her dorm room. She was carrying a heavy package almost as thick as a bookcase. Her roomate, Teresa, raised one eyebrow.
“Stop me if I’m being cliché, but what’s here?” she asked. “And why are you screaming as though Orlando Bloom is eating lunch in the kitchenette?”
Alice dragged the package over to the table, brushing her brown hair out of her eyes. Cutting the multiple layers of paper and tape open, she was confronted by a glimpse of red and black, the item she’d ordered shining in among the packing peanuts.
Once the mess was swept up, the contents of the package were revealed. A bright red, full-body suit was the main item, built with a concealed back zipper. The suit was already wearing its own clothing; it was hard to see what while it was still in the box, but a lot of it was a wi

She lay upon the floor as if in pieces

I walked towards her and the glass she shed cut my feet

that trailed my walk.
I slowly picked up her pieces and my hands were raw with cuts
and painted with the red of shimmering blood
but all I could feel was my heart throbbing
all I wanted was to try to piece this girl back together
and so I tried.
I really did.
But some pieces were too far gone
under my feet and beyond the repair I could give.
So I willingly filled those broken pieces with my own
So I could see the cracks in her soul disappear
and I grew weak
so I could see her grow strong.
And she did.

Like her smile
And it becomes her more than she
Could ever admit
But sometimes he finds himself missing
That mousy brown color
That drew him in the first place
He still remembers their first meeting,
A simultaneous rescue
The way her braid flew behind
As they strolled amongst the clouds
But he would never tell her,
Especially not now,
When she stands with arms akimbo
And glares at him with piercing eyes
She wouldn't appreciate the comment
Claim he was "slithering out" again
So he keeps his mouth shut
"You're late," she says
He shrugs back his shoulders
And quickly pulls her into his arms
One arm around her waist,
The other in her hair
"It's the king's fault, not mine."
She protests, tries to escape
(Old Sophie remains, at least in her temper)
But he gives her a kiss
Runs his fingers through silver
She sighs and gives in
And he decides he likes it much more
Than a silly brown braid
And besides, starlight suits black
Persephone and HadesPersephone and Hades6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
This is my story, the one of love and loss. Hate and distrust theft and the regaining of what I lost. My name is Persephone; my mother is the Greek goddess Demeter. Many, many human years ago, I was stolen from my mother by the god of the Underworld, Hades. He claimed me as his bride, forcing me to eat a berry from the Underworld so that I could not stay outside of it for very long or at least without him near me. But Im getting ahead of myself; I want to tell you everything.
I remember my last day on the planet we gods and demi-gods called Earth, where we let the mortal humans run around and be free. Mother had sent me with a few maids to pick flowers for her, especially since she was already angry with some farmers who had not given an offering before they planted their crops. I was obedient and left immediately, throwing on a dress no one would look at me twice in.

"When manipulating the weather you have to keep tight control on the flow of your magic. Release too much as you could end up with an energy surge and end up doing something you didn't intend," Master Howl explained, leaning back on his elbows. He and Markl were reclining on a blanket in the sunshine beside Star Lake, having their magic lesson outside.
Sophie was flitting in and out of the Castle with baskets of clothes, humming happily to herself. She had only been with them a few weeks, but already Markl didn't know how they had coped without her. It was certainly nice to have clean clothes all of the time.
"Because weather is a universal occurrence you have to keep your magic focused on a single area, preferably wherever you are at that moment," Howl continued. "Its far more difficult to try and change the weather on the other side of the country, and, let's face it, what would be the point?"
Markl frowned at Sophie, only half listening to his Master's
Welcome HomeMy shadow is cast in all directionsWelcome Home3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The lights shine brighter for me
My footfalls are hard on the pavement
I will not be stopped
I chased Death out the door
and under the pallor of the night sky,
she worked her way into my chest
Her fingers ventured forth
with the warmth to melt my iron doors
Now I smoke a cigarette in the bone yard
I sit here waiting, praying
for someone to lie by my side
The wind moans like a lover in my ear
It whispers 'come back to me'
Walk with me through my haunted places
If we grow a shadow, it'll soon disappear
I can show you beauty,
if you follow longer than fear allows
The smaller lights cast a greater glow
in the blackest of places

The young woman in the room whirled about, red eyes flashing.
As Pipopa turned to flee, a black-gloved hand snatched his bobbing cotton-fluff tail, cruelly yanking him back as a second gloved hand clasped around his throat.
"...Hiroko..." Pipopa gasped out, blue eyes squinting nearly closed with pain.
"How could I forget my magical companion?"
There was perhaps a tone of mockery in the voice. The young woman continued to grip Pipopa's throat, as her other hand released Pipopa's abused tail and slowly traced a finger across his cheek.
"My most trusted friend?"
The mockery was unmistakable now. Her finger glided sideways, gently tapping Pipopa on the nose, then continuing upwards.

It was supposed to be a quiet night at the Kaplans'. The younger siblings were at a friend's sleepover. The parents? Off to catch a show downtown. That left the house's eldest son, his boyfriend, and spiritual twin at home alone, each to their own devices. Now, usually, such a scenario was quite favorable - Teddy and Billy wanted to be together, preferably alone. Tommy usually wanted to be away from the two during what he referred to as 'mating season', and could care less about where that desire took him. Usually, the separate wishes worked well together, but unfortunately for the young couple, that wasn't to be a regular night. Be it from loneliness, any other need for attention, or simply boredom, Tommy refused to leave the two alone. He followed them around the house, through the living-r
