It’s all because of me, isn’t it?
It’s because of me she’s dead.
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

"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

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.
This little thing happened to be a Midgardian comfort food known as, ice cream.
You were rather nervous to try it, but you really needed the comfort it was said to bring it's consumer.
You stared at the plastic tub full of the the creamy brown substance. You swallowed audibly.

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

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

“(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&

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

"I-I'm going," you called back, clutching the flashlight you had brought with you. Your friends had dared you to enter the woods alone at night armed with nothing but a small flashlight and your wits. Normally you wouldn't have had any problems with something like this, but these woods weren't normal. You had heard all of the rumors about this particular forest. Rumors that people who wandered inside of these woods at night would never return; that they would be killed by a monster that lurked within the dark woods. You didn't believe the part about the monster, but part of these rumours were true. Many people who went wandering about in the forest often never returned home.
Your friends pushed on your back, laughing. "Go on scaredy-cat!"
You stumbled forward, almost reaching the edge. You braced yourself, and stepped into the ominous forest. You could hear your footsteps on the

A Midgardian Vacation: Loki Oneshot
It had started in the mid-summer, on the hottest day in recent memory. But the heat meant very little to Jane Foster as she paced the space of her bedroom for the fiftieth time. She was absolutely and completely conflicted. The woman's left hand rapidly brushed her hair away from her face, while her right convulsively clutched her cellphone.
"This is a bad idea,"the woman muttered to herself as she once more glanced down at the mobile in her palm. "This is a really bad idea."
With this established realization, Jane promptly flopped onto her bed with a sigh. Her predicament was dire, and her resolve was fading more and more with each passing minute. Her quandary was this: Every summer her two nieces Anna and Cassie came for a week long visit, where the three of them would spend time together seeing the sights and having fun. But this year was different. Because this year, there were two Asgardians staying with
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 watch as you drown in the life you left behind:
(One foot forward, two steps back)
Always in the past, (Can't look towards the end)
Please; don't realize what you lack.
I watched as you turned away from everything
Thinking: 'It's now or be declined'
Your tourniquet can't last for ever.
Don't you realize that you're blind?
Standing in the doorway,
Looking at your restless form; hair in tides.
Your angel of death is here.
To be your suicide.
Smiling as you try to piece back the puzzle,
That used to be your life,
But you tore it all apart.
Let you hold weaken on that knife.
You know that's true.
Your heart can't handle all this pain.
Listen to my call. You know.you.have.to.
I stretch my hand forward,
Suddenly I'm visible to you.
Please just cast your gaze on mine.
I'm here; you knew.
I will take to a beautiful world of dreams.
Just close your eyes, clear your head.
I will take your soul away from reality;
Just always look ahead.

Is she Mary Sue? Clarifying Mary SueIs she Mary Sue?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So, I realize that everyone has heard of Mary Sue characters, but the thing that bothers me is that Mary has never really been as clarified as she could be. Girls go around crying Mary Sue at every character with long pink hair, then go and create even worse Mary Sue characters in the false illusion that they're making nonMary Sue characters (or even anti-Sues) when in fact they're doing the opposite. Allow me to explain how this seems to happen.
First of all the term "Mary Sue" desperately needs to be clarified to these people, so this brings us to the very important question: What IS a Mary Sue?
At least everyone can agree on one thing. Mary Sues are characters that are so perfect it's annoying.
But. What do they mean by perfect? Everyone has different ideas of that, naturally. Unfortunately, this is how many fanfiction (and other) writers make their biggest mistakes.
