Don't Fall Asleep: PrologueAmidst the rubble of partly-destroyed buildings and torn up cars and God-knows-whats, Renee found herself looking out from under an overturned cab that not an hour before she had boarded to head home from shopping downtown. Now, her cabbie was dead and four men were standing around the intersection a few feet in front of her trapped, invisible form. One wore a metallic suit, another some chain mail and had a massive hammer, one in a black and purple suit with a large, empty quiver and a bow strapped to his back, and the last in a red, white, and blue suit and a mask over his face. He held a shield at his side with a white star in the middle. He was the only one who was really looking and taking in the carnage around him.Don't Fall Asleep: Prologue3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Renee considered calling out to them for help, but the car was sort of crushing her a little bit and she was honestly terrified of the men. The one she had seen grow all green and destroy everything in
I am damned.I am called to trial for my life.I am damned.3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Before a jury of Asir and mortals.
How very hilarious.
You mortals convene to loosely decide the fate of a god.
How very righteous of you.
I, however; cannot be called "righteous." I cannot even be thought to be redeemable.
All hope of reconciliation was lost when I let go.
My brother- he who so claims to be my brother- the oaf, of course, would argue otherwise- that I was and am redeemable.
To call one who has already been claimed with such accusations as I redeemable would be the equivalent of believing that, a monstrous creature set free of its cage, would not bring harm to those who gave him freedom.
I have been given such titles as malevolent, cruel, liar, thief, and murderer.
I stand trial before my subjects with such accusations;
And I am guilty of every one.
Some have even gone so far as to "accuse" me of being death himself.
I, however; am simply a cause of death.

"Jack Frost!" called the voice with Australian accent. "…you're so dead!" he threatened the winter spirit he wasn't able to find already. "…you'll see, when I get you…!" And he kept like that, looking behind every piece of snow, frozen object, etc. E. Astern was pissed.
That morning he woke up waiting willing to find some of the eggs around him and waiting to be painted or something. Instead, once he opened his eyes, he found them sticked to the wall in some kind of frozen prison writing the word: "KANGAROO"
"Maybe you can run, but not hide!" said still trying to intimidate the un-found white-haired trickster. So concentrated in the chasing was the rabbit, that he never really noticed the sudden appearance of a blond hair from behind some tree.
"…dang frozen…" he kept mumbling to himself " now that trickster will see…. Once I get my hands on him…!"

Ben? Abbys tone made it quite clear that she wasnt really questioning if the person perched precariously at the top of the ladder leaning against the side of the house was her husband. Rather, she was asking whether or not he was currently sane enough to recognize his own name.
Yes, Abigail? Ben grinned down at her from over his shoulder, very careful not to shift his weight too much. He was pretty sure that being able to hang by Christmas lights was a myth, and he didnt really relish the idea of plummeting three stories to join his wife on the ground, thank you very much. Hed wait until it was possible to climb down.
What are you doing? Again with the sanity questioning tone. Honestly, one would think she didnt trust him!
Not that she had any particular reason to trust his sanity. He was the one up on the ladder at dawn, after all.

Victor shook his head to snap himself out of his shocked trance and dropped the baseball bat, his helmet flying off as well as he rushed to the bases surrounding the field. Halfway to third base he heard a familiar bark and skidded to a stop, looking over at where the ball had landed on the street. His eyes widened in pure horror when he saw Sparky chasing after the ball as it rolled to the curb. Immediately Victor bolted towards his dog in a panic as Sparky simply picked up the baseball and began to trot over to his owner, unaware of the speeding car coming towards him. Victor spotted the car and picked up the pace, ignoring his parents shouts as they chased after him in an attempt to stop him. Without thinking of the consequences, Victor dived onto the street and pushed Sparky out of the way, a loud screech sounding out from the wheels of the car as it attempted to stop, followed by a sickening thud. Victor tumbled forward limply and the driver got out, rushing ov

Of one in green.
As he waltzes towards her
Emeralds meet sapphires
And there is passion,
At first, unforeseen.
The low purr in his throat
Rises to a growl
As she spins in the arms
Of Thor and Fandral.
She dances with more fervor than before
As she sees the aggression expand to something more.
They're closer now,
And the tension is great.
Their gazes, fevered,
Do not even break.
When his arm extends,
In an invitation,
He says, "Dance with me, Sigyn."
And she takes his hand,
And starts to step,
Feeling her heartbeat flutter in her chest.
In their minds
The room is empty.
Where the doe and snake prance
In perfect harmony.

Patrick turned off his new Cadillac as he pulled up behind the red Ferrari already parked there. He smiled as he turned off the headlights, shaking his head. He should have known that Riley would be here too. Bens second shadow.
His son had invited him to spend the holidays at his new home. At first, Patrick had been going to pass on the offer. He thought that he ought to leave the new couple to spend their first holiday together. Then Abby had mentioned that they would need a babysitter for Riley, and hed realized she wasnt entirely joking.
It hadnt been much of a decision after that. He figured he owed Ben at least that much. His son had found the treasureand never once rubbed in Patricks face that he had been wrongand settled down just like his father had always wished. The least he could do was baby-sit the master of sarcasm so he could have some time with his wife.

His secondand possibly fatalmistake had been to think that taking Riley with him would be a good idea.
Nobody cared about the kid more than he did, of this Ben was sure, but if Riley said his feet hurt one more time then he was taking his next trip down an escalator head first.

Her hair so soft and gently flowing
Her skin so silky cannot be soiled

Under A Gibbous MoonIt was a dark evening, the light of a starkly gibbous moon shone ominously onto a lone Arkham building. A place rooted firmly into one of the more undesirable districts of that cursed city. The light trickled through into its Georgian interior, as if afraid of the dancing shadows it threw forward like devilish spectres. The pointed ears and peaked form of something alien to the world were cast darkly onto Howard Phillip Lovecraft by the softly tortured light. He sat reading the "The Cask of Amontillado", muttering to himself, strange musings punctuated by the curling of his lips. The cat's shadow disappeared and the scene seemed twisted for a moment, silent but for the screams of another world that could be heard echoing in the dark circuitous passageways of his mind.Under A Gibbous Moon3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
