Cosplayer: One who creates a costume based on a character from a popular video game, manga, comic, movie, or graphic novel, and goes to conventions.
Convention: A large group of fans and cosplayers to appreciate the fandoms they enjoy, and have fun together.
Now that we know the basics of what these two things are, you should have no problem understanding everything I'm about to say. Whether you are a newly discovered cosplayer, or a continuing one, this guide is here to help you along the way of what goes on at cons, how to get through the hard parts, and enjoy the fun parts. Now I've been a cosplayer for only one year, but that doesn't mean that I haven't had the time to observe and even witness some off spectacles that go on at these conventions. I had to deal with them, but I figured I'd try and help the less fortunate people. My idea? Create a guide that informs people of everything they encounter. This is the Cosplay Survival Guide.
Now let's say that it's a few weeks or so befor

"Hey you!" Oh shit, I slowly turned around and saw the mother of the bride, her brows pulled down in frustration. "Have you set up the flower arrangements?? Has anyone seen the bride?!? Where's my daughter?!?" She started screaming at the other helpers. I had dressed up like them so I could get into see him. I quietly slipped away, darting around the corner as her other daughter dressed in yellow and orange pastel dresses tried to calm her down. I grabbed a large arrangement of flowers and hid my face behind it as I walked through the hallways, searching for him. The love of my life, my best friend who was about to make the biggest mistake of his life.

PruCan - Verboten ch1Verboten. Verboten. If there wasn't any other word of German he could recognize, it was one that he'd heard too often. Forbidden. It was posted on notices on every corner that Matthew Williams-Bonnefoy somberly wheeled his bicycle past, and he was hard pressed to remember what Bussy had been like before the occupation had begun. The windows of most houses were still tightly fastened behind shutters and thick curtains, though it had been almost a full year since the Armistice had been signed and the city overrun with German soldiers.

Matthew leaned heavily against his handlebars as he stopped on the road, allowing a gaggle of soldiers to pass. Their boots and belts caught the sun, shining brightly in the warming April morning. The dusty almond green of their crisp uniforms mirrored the greenery of newly awakened grass covered in dew. But Matthew couldn't help but see these men as monsters, glinting cold and metallic and moving a
PruCan - Verboten ch3Spring blossomed gently into summer, the late June weather fine and hot, and the villagers and Germans of Bussy found themselves strangely at ease. They were too far removed from the rest of France, from the rest of the world on these lovely summer evenings. Gentle stirrings of warm breezes mingled with the humming of insects, sweetly drifting over young couples as they visited in secret. The Germans and the French were by no means reconciled, and being found out by the rest of the village would create scandal and uproar, but who could resist the sweet intoxication of young love when it called?

Most of the villagers feigned a blind eye or a deaf ear, should they catch a pair of voices whispering sentiments in broken French and German. The men had been too long away, and so long as the wives remained faithful, who would mind the young girls learning to turn on their charms?

After I was done sparing, I began hearing slow claps, making me look up. I see Luciano, clapping for me, smirking with amusement.

“Ciao, mia bella ragazza,” Luciano replied, seductively after we pulled away.
I blushed and giggled as he held me closer to him, his arms linked around my waist. Ever since Luciano comforted me after I told him my past, we both became romantically attached to each other.

You awoke startled. As you sat up, a gust of cold air brushed past your skin causing you to shiver. Why had you been so cold? Where were you? You slowly began blinking your eyes trying to adjust to the dimmed lighting. The area was extremely unfamiliar to you. The cold looking wooden walls and flooring, the partially lit candle that looked as if it would go out any minute now and the odd musky smell that came from somewhere in the room.
The smell was strong, so you had figured that it had to be from nearby. As you began to narrow down the source of the odor, you took in a huge gulp. There was a bulge in the blanket next to you. In the shape of a head. With blonde hair sticking out on the pillow. It couldn’t be Arthur. It’d make no sense. None at all. With all that was going lately and with the recent turn of
PruCan - Verboten ch2The bells tolled twelve in the town square and in the bell tower of the church. It was noon on Easter Sunday in Germany, and the great clock set into the wall of Bussy's town hall as well as the one adorning the church reflected that time. However, in the Williams-Bonnefoy household the great grandfather clock in the atrium, with its dark bass tone echoing through the bare hall, was one chime short. Here, as in all the French households, it was only eleven AM, no matter what time the occupying soldiers insisted they were living on.PruCan - Verboten ch23 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Matthew counted the hollow chimes, sure that he could feel each one of them reverberating within his heart in the same way they did the heavy mahogany body of the clock. Morning mass had been over for an hour, as the church had no choice but to operate on the time indicated by the Germans, but Marthe would not be serving Easter lunch until noon, punctual to a fault. Any attempt to persuade her to relinquish even a morsel before then would end in d

Maddie couldn't sleep and that was a problem. She had fallen asleep a few minutes after her little talk with her father, but less than an hour later something inside her had stirred, prying her out of her peaceful sleep. Now she could do nothing except lay between her tangled sheets, twisting and turning as worry churned inside of her, tying her stomach into tight knots.
A small groan escaped her lips as she turned to face the alarm clock resting on her bedside table. The bright red numbers on the clock's face pierced through the darkened room to tell her that it was already four in the morning and the family would be waking up in a few hours to head off to Sunday morning Mass. (Well, the whole family except for Dad, who hadn't set foot inside a Catholic church since their baptism.)

Having been with Francoise for as long as he had had made the sight of even the most expensive and risqué undergarments nearly mundane to him, especially come laundry day. He already knew what setting to put the washer on, how much soap and fabric softener to use, and yes, he admitted that sometimes he would cling to a stray bra or panty a bit too long and run his fingers against the smooth fabric and reminisce about all the fun they'd had while Francoise wore them.
Today was not so mundane, because as he shifted through the seemingly endless piles of clothing in the laundry room, his hand landed on pair that he did not recognize. It was new, he could tell from the price tag that had carelessly been left unclippe

Around him a scramble of men flipped through papers, chatted mildly about work, and exchanged the news. Sweat laced the young man's brow as he replaced the paper in his machine.
