Tess Abernathy rolled her large blue eyes at him and sighed. "As much as I absolutely adore my job in data-entry here," she began, her voice dripping with sarcasm, "I love your amazing ability to come up with the stupidest ideas ever even more."
"Aw, c'mon, Tess!" said Matt, laughing. "Seriously, though. I had to look this guy up 'cause his address was wrong, and the database says he died at an old address about a month ago, but he's alive at a new address now. Weird, isn't it?"
Tess rolled her eyes again. This was common practice when it came to Matt. "He was probably trying to jump rent or evade taxes or something," she dismissed, glancing at Matt's work before frowning and turning back to her own pair of screens. "Matt, you're doing that thing with your finger again. Would

The good thing, or what everyone else thought was a good thing, was that you were out and about all day, though you still slept in Loki's room. The other thing was that you started wearing your own clothes again, but they were always sporting his colors, dark green, black, and gold. But hey! At least they were your clothes!
Today, just so happened to remember something that Thor had told you about.

You stared at the plastic tub full of the the creamy brown substance. You swallowed audibly.

Without anyone to talk to,
Yeah we met last week
I'm so glad
You actually remembered me.
Hey remember me?
That we could hang out.
I know it might
Seem a bit strange to ask
But are we friends?
Now I can be at ease
You’re really here with me
It wasn't just a tease.
Hey remember me?
Just a little bit though
I thought you liked me
Because of that
Because of the way I am
Hey remember me?
To keep up a smile
But it’s getting pretty hard
Because every once in awhile
It seems like all you want
Is for me to cry.
Is that what a friend does?
Hey remember me?
Please say you do
I'm your friend
And all that entails
So I can take them
All your continual assails
As long as you remember me
I doubt my heart will fail.
Hey remember me?
I'm being forgotten
Though I suppose that means you don't
You never do
Never even try to
Even after all I've begged of you
Even after all we've been through
You treat me like

"The Quarantine Zone has expanded," Sara said. Matt was about to ask her to tell him something he didn't already know when she continued. "Breakouts being reported well outside of the original zone. There are now four quarantine zones."
Matt suddenly realized she was translating. "You speak Spanish?"
"I understand Spanish. Can't speak it," Sara corrected in a rush, holding up a finger to silence him as she continued. "New quarantine zones extend in fifty mile radiuses around Detroit, Michigan some town in Indiana I've never heard of and " Matt looked to her to find her face drained of
River and the DoctorIt took a lot of pushing and shoving to load that blue box into the cargo bay: even with the mule and the ATV, Mal couldn't blame his latest customer for circling the crate nervously every time it wobbled on its setting.

"Caaareful," the eccentric man protested as his prized possession trembled for the umpteenth time. He held out his hands as if hoping to catch it, but in reality it could probably crush him. The skinny stranger moved as if he hadn't quite grown into his limbs, waltzing about in a tweed jacket, navy trousers and a bright bow-tie. And to hinder his physical talents even further, his unruly brown hair dangled completely in front of his eyes in one fell swoop.
"No need to beat yourself up over a couple scratches, stranger," Mal called to him while he and Jayne worked. He particularly eyed the nicks and scuffs in the bright cobalt paint. "This thing looks like it'

“(F/n)!” you heard someone whisper through the fog of your sleep, “(F/n)!”
Blinking blearily, you opened your eyes to see Matthew. One hand was gently shaking your shoulder while the other held a tin plate of food. He seemed relieved to see you awake.
The quiet boy only said one word to you before slipping out of the storage room to the kitchen. “Eat.”
And you did. Greedily, you scooped the tasteless food of the pirates into your mouth, only wanting a break from the painful hunger of your stomach. When you finished the food, you felt worse then before, nauseous from the sudden weight in your stomach.
The door opened again and you flinched, but it was only Matthew again. He seemed nervous. “Look, I don’t know what happened, but Arthur’s frantic and starting to act a bit strange,” the boy’s voice trailed off a bit before picking up again, “I can’t hide you here anymore, I&

He steps out onto the stage, grinning as always
He can hear the bass playing as the drum sets the mood
So to warm them up, he begins with an introduction:
Though we have come here tonight as individuals
I believe that we will leave here as friends
Because no one else, except a friend
Would be willing to hear you scream.
And so, tonight, we'll be playing our song "Scream"
He takes a deep breath and the guitar begins to wail
The drumming heats up and he knows that this is his moment
In a voice that is low and filled with emotion
He slowly begins to sing his song:
When first you came upon this path
You thought that you had seen the last of-
Nightmares crawling from your dreams!
You hear the sound of a thousand screams and they-
Drag you down to suffocate!
And you're just filled with so much hate that you-

(When it cuts right past your skin!)
Just raise up your voice, I'll let you be heard!

Smile for me - Chapter 1Chapter 1Smile for me - Chapter 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It was a calm and peaceful night where even the wind had ceased to let the soft silence take place in the air. Not a single sound, a single little noise dared to make itself present, fearing of breaking this delicious peace walking around in the streets of the city. The air was warm, the temperature perfect and still. No signs of a single soul, of a single life were even seen outside of the buildings lined up in the street. Everything was perfectly still, as if time itself had frozen. There was not a single leaf to quiver, not a single blade of grass to shake. To embellish this very quiet scene, the bright and big pool of silvery water just above served as one of the only source of light in the entire city; the other being the million fireflies in this abyss that was as pure as black ink. There was no other source of light, but they were enough. Anyone who would have decided to disrupt the calmness outside to take a walk would have seen almost as perfectly as the day.

I walked in quietly, making sure she was home. “Lucy?”
No one was there, so I looked around, I didn’t see anything unusual. The room was still neat and tidy, nothing was out of place… but why wasn’t she here? Did she leave for the guild? Did she go on a job?
I walked into the kitchen, and my jaw dropped at the sight I saw.
I ran to her side, shaking her up and down. “Lucy!” I exclaimed. “Lucy! Wake up!”
It was at that moment I realized something.
She wasn’t breathing.
Tears started prickling down my cheek. “Lucy!” I yelled. “Don’t you die on me, Lucy! Stop! Lucy! Don

It was everywhere. Dangling from every entrance-way, piled high upon the tables, even tangled into the yetis' fur. The Guardians stared in amazement at the scene in North's workshop.
'So... the elves have been decorating?' Bunny asked aloud, his ears twitching curiously. North shook his head and gestured to the small group of elves near his feet. All three had mistletoe tied to the tops of their hats, causing them to dance around and kiss each other on the cheeks.
'They are a little too short to get so high up. And the yetis do not seem to like having the plant in their fur either,' North laughed, clearly amused with the prank.

Disclamier: This text was based on Mary-Sue Litmus Test . All questions are gleaned from it and what I consider makes a Mary-sue. Im not attacking anybody with this test. Its simply an experiment that Im doing. Even my own characters are going to be put to this test.
This is simply a listing of clichés that are more often used to describe MSs and GSs. By no means should you use this guide to determine if your character is a MS or GS. This guide is meant to help authors to recognize stale, clichéd characters and stories, so that they can turn them into well-rounded characters and stories.
Of course having some of these traits does not make your character an MS/GS. Many fanfics that Ive read have had characters with many of the characteristics listed, but were well written and enjoyable to read a

You sang to yourself, dancing to your singing. You twirled around and continued walking through the park. People gave you odd stares as you passed by, but you ignored them, or rather, you didn't even notice. You hummed the rest of the song to yourself, swaying your hips side to side, closing and opening your hands beside your head. You stopped when you heard someone panicking to himself.

"Say, will you stay with me? Forever?" A very young and childish voice echoed into the emptiness. Even though everything was surrounded by the darkness, even though they were blind in this nothingness it didn't affect them. The two stared at each other with a passion they couldn't even see. The smaller seemed to be the one that had said theses words; he was young, fragile and so very much like a child. Hands behinds his back, nervous swinging his body gently, awaiting for an answer. Of course, he probably feared a rejection, but an answer would be better than to be left alone in this emptiness. The other one, the taller, seemed like an adult. Everything in his posture told maturity, experience and darkness. A lone wolf who had closed his heart to everything and everyone long ago. He tensed, hearing theses words, not knowing how to answer, but he would not run, as much as he wanted too. He trusted that child, that precious child and he knew that they felt the same way about

"Nothing much~" You speak cautiously, trying not to arouse the currently quiet beast which sleeps in the mind of this lonely, crazed man. "I was going to spend the day baking, and being a couch potato. I hadn't planned on entertaining guests."
"Well I am honored that you would take me as a guest into your house~" Arthur replied politely. "You are such a peculiarly sweet girl~~" He broadened his mouth into a large, toothy grin.

Lessons for TodayToday in math class, they would be learning how to factor quadratic equations. Miss Gracie, called Mrs. G by her students, knew this because she had the lesson planned out meticulously across three-and-a-half sheets of college-ruled notebook paper, which sat neatly in a folder before her. She knew because, like with all her lessons, she had recited it in front of her dressing mirror last night, right before bed.Lessons for Today1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
