Worte die in der Luft hängen
an denen ich mir den Kopf stoße
die mir ins Fleisch schneiden
für die ich nichts übrig habe
für die ich keine Verwendung habe
die ein Ziel vorgeben
die mich ziellos zurücklassen

Ein Mann, ein Wort
Ein Wort, ein Baum

Expecting great things
As many a person should,
But let me ask you something,
What is it you truly know about me?
Surely you remember that optimistic young girl
Without a care in the world...
Now all that remains,
Is a secluded person
So very detached from her former self...
Once in a while you may ask me,
"What are you thinking of?"
Something tells me
I shouldn't answer that.
Not with the nightmares I've had,
Of me hurting someone...
For all those times
You've never seen me behind closed doors
Assuming I'm wasting my time,
When in reality, in those long conversations to friends online,
I'm keeping someone from taking their life.
Call me a failure
Call me lazy
Call me useless,
I’m starting to not give a damn anymore...
You do realize I have gone through many years of silence
For good reason.
Your constant scorn and anger frighten me.
Your words that have twisted my mind into the perpetual pessimist I have become.
Here I am, on the constant

It was a rainy morning in Washington, Seattle. The clouds were dark and heavy; the prelude to an ominous storm. At four in the morning, the city was bustling with sleepy activity. Night jobs were closing down and early bird shifts were groggily making coffee and hitting the highways.
A helicopter landed precariously a few miles out of the city. A crack of thunder was drowned out by the spinning propeller blades. A small figure, followed by a great black dog, climbed from the door. They walked away, heading towards an idling limousine.
The wind blew long blonde hair into her eyes as she dragged her suitcase towards the car. The big dog evolved at that moment into the figure of a dark haired girl in white, as Integra rolled her eyes. Alucard smiled deviously as Integra rolled her eyes. It was clear she was overall annoyed. At age 22, she s

The Face of Death
Rating: PG 13
Word count: 2,285
When I was scarcely a stripling, one of the elders told me that Death was neither friend nor enemy, that she simply was. Death existed in the same breath as life and shadowed every creatures footsteps from the moment they slid from their mothers womb. Even those of us as unending and ageless as elves.
My own mother, when she passed into the Endless Grove, smiled and spoke to my sire, dead more than fifty turns of the seasons. When my mentor died from the bite of a poisoned arrow, she called out to her son, gone to the Grove nearly a full turn ago. Death, I reasoned, must come wearing the face of someone beloved and gone before.
Imagine my surprise when Death came for me, that she did not wear the face of my own beloved Elision, but that of a human boy, no more than seventeen turns old, with eyes a shade of emerald no elven eyes could match. They were l

It was your fourth night at Fazbear's Fright: The Horror Attraction. The whole gig of this place was that it was spawned off of the legends and rumors of this old pizzeria franchise known as "Freddy Fazbear's Pizza." Supposedly, a gruesome case of child murders took place there and there was even an incident where someone had their frontal lobe bitten out. The franchise eventually sank under all of the bad reputation, and the so-called "haunted" animatronics. The old building was never taken down, really. The place was let

"Shush! Don't speak to loudly! Shadow might here you!" Rouge tried to hush the now startled hedgehog. Though-his words were truth, in her gloved hands sat the gleaming and somewhat gorgeous sword of King Arthur. She felt somewhat bad about "stealing" it, but she needed to know something before Sonic left just one.
Meanwhile, Shadow was still staring at his yard, inner turmoil inside his body preventing him from even moving. Why had he told Sonic, a person he had just met, everything? Well not really 'everything', but almost everything! He silently cursed himself. Sonic could've gone his whole life without ever knowing anything about him. Shadow sighed, knowing this was all his own fault. It was like digging your own hole to die in-and now he was facing the consequences. He didn't even know for sure if Sonic was Arthur! Even though everything said it was his kings' reincarnation .Shadow couldn't allow himself to believe it he just .couldn't

My name is Elizabell. Or it was, once upon a time. I'm not sure I even have a name now. Once upon a time, I was an ordinary human being. Once upon a time, I drifted from day to day without interest or adventure.
That was so long ago. Or was it? Time is so strange, it surrounds you, it consumes you, and eventually you become lost in it. And now I can see the look in your eye, as if I am not making sense. Oh, if only you knew how little sense things make when you see them all flowing thro

Foster took the opportunity to have one more look around the shop. The selection of wares out front was adequate—certainly a fair mix of parts—but there was nothing remarkable. Nothing befitting his steady rise into high s

I did what any of us would have done when learning that my Internet service had been shut down. I cried.
Actually, that's not completely true. The first thing I did was frantically dial up the campus tech people, who told me the problem would be resolved in an hour. Anyone who has ever dealt with Electronic Device Repairpersons should already know that "an hour" in their language translates into "sometime between an hour and the rapture."
So I waited an hour. Then I cried.
How could I possibly function without instant access to news, entertainment, and all that other stuff that's just sort of there? What could I do in place of checking my e-mail every 20 minutes and playing Slingo? This was a major problem.
But after a moment of despair, I dried my tears with the hanky of determination. I would not let this defeat me! I had lived happily before without the Internet and I could live the same way now! I only had to remember how.

Envy--FMA Character Analysis 1Hello fellow FMA fans and obsessive Envy fans! Here is Part 1 of my first character analysis of the world's most misunderstood homunculus, Envy. I'm doing AS-level English Literature at school, so an in-depth character analysis didn't seem like such a massive overwhelming feat to accomplish. I am going to try and be as neutral as possible when dealing with the surprisingly deep character that is Envy, so as to make the analysis believable. I'm going to look at his (or rather, as in the manga, 'ITS') character as it was originally portrayed by Hiromu Arakawa in the manga series of Fullmetal Alchemist, for obvious reasons, and am going to refer to Envy as 'it' throughout the essay for that reason.Envy--FMA Character Analysis 14 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Melodrama, strictly defined, means a “song drama,” of the French tradition. The tradition of this story was characterized by over-the-top emotions, to the point that the character's emotions were unintentionally funny, or ridiculous. Melodrama in modern literature, is a term used for when the emotions of your characters are absurd, petty, beyond control, and seem to overshadow the story; and today I'm going to talk about overcoming the melodrama in your story. Please note that this is something to be considered in the editing process, not in the first draft. There will be melodrama—but don't worry about it until you have a whole story down on paper or digital ink.
Step 1: Identify the melodrama in your story.
If you have written a first draft with a good number of characters with different wants and desires, there WILL be melodrama. And so your first step will go to every scene where there are emotional flares—of love,

The 'first me'
That everyone could see
Really didn't know much about anything
She would always shout off key:
"Isn't the world is so
Can't you see?"
I guess I'll just have to explore
Beyond the boundaries and walk out of that door
The 'second me'
Live life a bit more responsibly
She knew that the 'first me' didn't
She was always frightened of the consequences
"Isn't the world so
If I stay far away
Then maybe it'll forget I'm here"
Is what from her lips you would hear.
The 'third me'
Taking in whatever she could see
She would conform as long as she could live comfortably
She was easily brainwashed
"Isn't the world so
Maybe if I ignore them some,
Then they'll let me be me."
The 'fourth me'
Liked to be controversially
And easy to see commercially
She would always say:
"Isn't the world
So welcoming today?
Everything is so colorful
This place is simply wonderful!"
The 'fifth me'
Had seen everything 'four' didn't see
She now knew the end

You always complain that Adan should change back into Beast becuase according to you "Prince Adam is Ugli!!1!!" "He looks bETTER as a BeAsT!"!!"
