Draped in raven night, Shadows start to come to life,
They sway across the dark room,
Lit only by the distant moon.
Fear fills you up inside,
Nowhere to run, Nowhere to hide,
From all the things that go bump in the night.
The howling wind shrieks outside,
Filling you to the brim with fright.
An eerie tapping at window glass,
Close your eyes tight, let out a gasp,
The ghouls are here to play at last.
Monster under the bed hidden from sight,
Teeth razor sharp glisten with delight,
Eyes black as the dead of night.
Long needle like fingers ready to snatch,
Sinister his smile as he eagerly awaits his catch.
Ghostly entities dance eerily across the walls,
Heed the warning in their woeful calls,
Almost sick from their piercing pleas,
Such gloom to bring you to your knees.
How to escape the ghouls grasp,
As they will you not to last,
Heart beat racing fast.
The boogie man waits in the closet realm,
Such sights never have you held.
Draped in a cloak of night,
Just his blood grin bares wi
Catch A Princess By Her ToeMarceline was just floating around the candy kingdom, she was bored and needed a bit of change of scenery. It's been a month since she visited this place. She needed a bit of alone time since a lot had happened. The doorlord, her dad tricking her, Finn and Jake finding out about her last name. It was exhausting, she left without telling anybody and now she's back. Although she doesn't know why she went to this particular place. Maybe because she misses Bonnibel?

Bloody Sunrise Chapter 4The following morning found Princess Bubblegum back in the lab, pouring over her notes. It had been days since she had worked on the photon resistance serum, as she had dubbed it, and now she had a secondary reason for completing it. If Marceline could stay out in the daylight it would make any searches to find the killer less risky and would increase the amount of search time they could utilize.Bloody Sunrise Chapter 42 years ago in Drama More Like This
At around late afternoon Finn and Jake returned from the Fire Kingdom. They too had asked and received the same reply as Marceline and Princess Bubblegum had from the Ice King. There were no reports of attacks or large winged monsters there either.
The banana guards now patrolled the battlements and streets nightly, armed with crossbows and heavy horse drawn catapults.
“I’ve almost got it,” said Princess Bubblegum as she stood with her hand poised over the beaker, holding a dropper of clear liquid.

Beastboy woke up the next morning to an empty tower.
"Hello? Cyborg? Robin? Star? Raven?" He walked into the living room and sat on the couch. There was a note on the table for him.
Cyborg went to a car show and won't be back for a few hours. Robin and I are on the date, and Raven went to her poetry café. Robin said not to touch anything you aren't supposed to. We will see you later.
"Great, what am I supposed to do all day?" He sprawled out on the couch and turned on the TV, flipping through the channels multiple times.
"Blech, it's all gloomy here, like Timid." The orange cloaked Raven, Rude, pointed to the Raven wearing a gray cloak. Timid became more saddened and buried her face in her hands.

You jerked awake and propped yourself in your elbows. You were in a small bed with gray sheets on it, the whole room was dark which meant it was night, only the faint light of the moon illuminating the small bedroom you were placed in.

Suddenly her vision was obscured and a voice whispered in her ear, “Guess who!” The steel spatula slipped from her grasp and hit the desk with a clatter.
“Marceline,” the Princess cried in surprise, her hands going up to her eyes. She felt the rough fabric of the gloves against her palms as she pulled the Vampire Queen’s hands from her eyes, “What are you doing here?”
“I was just passing,” replied Marceline, picking up an apple that was sitting on the desk. She bit into it and drained it of all its colour before tossing the now grey apple into the bin.

The rain had drenched my hair and was dripping down my nose. I could feel the heavy downpour slamming into me as I sat there, slumped against the ally wall. I'm 18 years old and I already had my heart broken, what's worse is that it was broken by a girl I thought would say yes: Raven. We had been showing chemistry for years and I was sure that she liked me the way I liked her. And the story goes like a cliché: Boy likes girl. Girl likes boy. Boy asks Girl out. Girl runs away.
I had showed her my emotions and she just ran, yeah, that says how much I really mean to her. I closed my eyes and started screaming and slamming my fist into the ground beneath me, busting and bloodying my knuckles as the tears streamed from my eyes. I could see the tears, blood, and rain mix together and form a small puddle next to me. I leaned over the puddle to look at my face; it was mangled with slashes across my eyes, forehead, chin, and cheek. It was because the Team had all seen w
The Final RoundLogan considered himself the best there was at what he did, particularly when it came to fighting of any description. Whether it was through strength, skill, savagery or sheer determination he always fought to win even if he took some hard knocks in the process. He could heal just about anything, keep going where any ordinary man would collapse in exhaustion and surrender was normally the last thing on his mind. This particular battle was different, fought on and off through the last couple of hours and at present he clearly wasn't winning. On his back, stripped of protection he was pretty much at his enemy's mercy. Definitely not a position he wanted to be in and now he wasn't sure how well he could stave off defeat.The Final Round4 years ago in Humor More Like This

One stormy winter’s night, Queen Chrysalis was rudely awoken from uneasy dreams to the sound of a loud crash.
She was up from her desk and on all fours in an instant, the sounds of an old stallion's yells and cannon fire still ringing loud in her ears. Her head twisted in several directions in a determined search of some unseen threat. For one horrifying moment, she might have sworn the cannon fire was still happening and her large, gnarled horn instinctively came aglow. It was the enemy! The city was under attack!
It took a moment for her still blurred mind to remember that that was nonsense, the mental ravings of a lethargic, unfocused mare still caught up in her fleeting dreams. She quickly managed to put together that the sound that awoke her was nothing but a simple roar of thunder coming from the storm raging on outside.
Trotting steadily over to a small window, she peered out at the heavy rain pounding against the pane. I

The sun was just starting to rise over town, but the shadows of night still clung to the area around Canterlot High School as Sunset Shimmer continued her work, such as it was. Snips and Snails had been there earlier as well, but they’d been picked up by their parents the previous evening once the dance had finished up, and odds were that she wouldn’t be seeing them for several days at least. While everything else that had happened the previous night stretched belief, it would be very easy to prove that school property had been damaged, and while they hadn’t done it themselves, they were party to it.
She paused to wipe some sweat from her brow before putting the last brick into place. Repairs to the front entrance were far from finished, but they were far beyond her capabilities.

The sun rose high and bright over the land, a few scant clouds lazily drifting over the sky and warm temperatures promising a pristine and beautiful day. Most Californians accepted this as the norm, and few had quarrels with it, particularly now that summer was almost over and fall was showing the first signs of settling in. Chief amongst those signs, however, was the inauguration of the school year.
Situated within driving distance of Fresno was Halcyon Academy, a college preparatory school for the high school age children of the affluent and wealthy. A private school, only those students with grade point averages within a certain percentile and with parents wealthy enough to pay for admission could attend. As a consequence, the school had a very small student body, averaging only around 240 graduates a year. Those same students, meanwhile, were easily identified by their uniforms the boys all wore pea green b
