Each to her own Hell
Comit just one and in the fires,
you'll forever dwell.
The first is Pride,
and vain is she.
She stalks by, head held high,
admires herself with glee.
Envy is the seconds name,
to Pride she's very close
What you have she wants the same,
love is her main foe.
The third wears many faces,
in hope to hide the truth.
Her names are Wrath and anger,
It's her you'll wish to soothe.
Patient she is not,
instead of her own faults,
it's yours that she'll boycott.
The fourth you've most likely met,
and lovingly embraced,
your zeal with Sloth you have replaced
Your love of work hath been erased.
The fifth also has two names,
Avarice, and sometimes Greed
and though a Belle is she
More she always needs.
The sixth sin is akin to Greed,
Gluttony is she
and though she gains and gains and gains,
she'll never be at peace.
The last is Lust,
she'll draw you in,
expose her bust and stroke your skin.
She is the worst that you can do,
control your urges, Lust subdue.

You notice nothing, where only the best matters
Watch as your life swings past you, laugh as it scatters
Notice no beauty in anything, only your own greed
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed
You always want more, money is all you are
All the times you fight for fame, your just adding another scar
Like humans are here, just to tend to your every need
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed
Constantly see others better, no more then Perverted Love
Like your waiting to die, like they will let you above
Like your forever waiting, you'll never precede
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed
Living insane, unable to reason and smile
You think physical abuse is needed, you think its worthwhile
You see humans as nothing, only to mislead
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Remember the seven deadly sins? They're hard to forget beings that they are almost in every culture, and even in anime such as Full Metal Alchemist. Sloth, Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Envy, Pride, and Anger, I used to think that these would never change. Then again, I thought that about several things, but today's modern day and age, anything changes at the whim of a stupid person who thinks they know more then anyone else does.

He ran though the wooden double doors, and started sprinting down the corridor. He looked up, and Alice was already inside the lift. He could tell, even from this distance, that she had no idea how to start it.
She needs more time. Hatter thought. With his lighter weight, he quickly caught up to the bulk that was Dodo. He launched himself at Dodo, tackling him to the ground.
"Hatter!" He heard Alice call from the lift.
He put his knee on Dodo's back in an effort to keep him down. This was not mean feat, for Dodo was putting up quite a struggle. He pointed towards Alice, "It's the blue button!" He shouted to her, short on breath. Dodo quickly turned over underneath him, and pushed Hatter of him with a kick to the stomach. Dodo tried to tackle him against the wall. "Go Alice!" Hatter urged her, trying to push Dodo off him. "Hurry up and push the blue button!" He heaved Dodo off him, and across the path. Hatter reared his arm back, and aimed a heavy punch towards Dodo's face. Dodo

Alice nodded, and turned away from the tree, starting forward.
"Um, the Tea Shop is this way." Hatter said, pointing his thumb back over his shoulder at the corridor they had just left. Alice turned to face him, a slightly sheepish look crossed her face, but it disappeared almost immediately.
"Alright then, lead on." She replied sarcastically. Hatter shook his head, a slight smile on his face, and turned back the way they had come. They had passed thorough the corridor, and by the front door to the Resistance before the silence between them was broken again.
"So, what use is this Looking Glass?" Alice asked Hatter, nonchalantly.
Hatter was secretly glad that she had broken the silence between them, and he hadn't had to do it. "The Looking Glass is the only way to get you back home." He paused. "It is here in the city, but it's the most heavily guarded piece of kit in Wonderland." Naturally. He thought
"I've gotta find Jack first." Alice replied.
Hatter stopped walking and turned

Hatter started forward again.
"Hey! Hey!" A metallic sounding voice with a thick accent reached his ears. Why does that accent sound familiar? He wondered. Hatter stopped by the red telephone booth, keeping Alice behind him. There was a funny looking man up on the front porch, shaking a seemingly terrified man.
Hatter heard a soft gasp from behind him, and he glanced back to see Alice's eyes glued to the strange looking man on the porch. I know how you feel. He thought.
Hatter looked back up at the porch. "Look at me, did you see her? Heh? Ugh, get outta here!" Then the poor man screamed as he was thrown off the porch where he then rolled across the ground and over the ledge to meet his death below. The stranger turned around to interrogate another.
They're not leaving anytime soon. Hatter realized. He leaned his head back against the telephone booth and pounded his fists against the glass in frustration.
"Did you see her?" Came the metallic voice again. Hatter loo

It was a shock for Alice to wake up in a hospital bed. It was even more of a shock when she was told that she had only been in that building for an hour.
It couldn't have been an hour! She had spent two days in Wonderland. Two days, not an hour!
It was the Looking Glass; it had to be the Looking Glass. It had put her back in her own world not long after she left kind of like in 'Narnia'!
It wasn't till she was home and packing up the things she had used to search for her dad that she noticed it. She couldn't believe she hadn't noticed it before. The large green tattoo like mark on her arm was gone. Not even a faint trace of it left.
She heard Hatter's voice echo through her head. 'That's not going to come off Sorry!'
"Well, it's off Hatter," she said grimly.
She realised that she didn't want it to be gone. Because if it was there it meant that everything that happened was really real.
Of course it was real, what was she thinking. There was no way

Man that thing's ugly. Hatter thought. Neither he nor Alice moved for a few moments. Why are we still standing here? "Run." He suggested to Alice, forcing himself to be calm. He started off to his left, and heard Alice's running footsteps behind him.
The Jabberwocky roared again, and Hatter smiled to himself. My plan is working! He congratulated himself. he ran for a few more yards before he realized that he couldn't hear Alice or the Jabberwocky behind him. What the- He looked back over his shoulder, and saw Alice weaving between the trees, running in the opposite direction, the Jabberwocky hot on her tail.
"Not that way!" He said exasperated. "Alice!" Before he could think about what he was doing, he ran after them. Every now and then the Jabberwocky would roar.
They went on like this for at least a mile. Hatter's mind blank with panic and fear for Alice's life. He didn't seem to be gaining on them, but he wasn't really falling behind either.

I know I must be crazy.
This is ridiculous, to the point of patheticality, insanity, lovedoesn'texist,
I might as well believe in the Easter bunny;
You're not going to change.
I know I'll keep coming back.

Hoarding them like I do my death-wishes.
I know I've deviated from innocent curiosity
To a secretly raging masochistic wannabe;
I'll show my desperately flailing failing faltering self,
Once I've really truly realised you're not going to change.
I know I'll keep coming back.
I know you'll attempt to understand,
But I hate to see you waste energy on the unimportant.
Keep on preaching; tell me I'm not remarkably flawed,
I might as well believe in self-worth. Self-preservation.
Self-preservation? Are you kidding? I might as well believe in love...

His heart ached like never before. The longing that he felt for Alice he saw reflected on her face. Only, that longing isn't for me.... Hatter thought.
"Jack's a lucky guy." He said softly.
Alice looked up at him, "What?"
"Nothing." Hatter covered himself quickly. He shook his head. "Look, it's late," he began to walk towards Alice, "and we all need our rest. We can argue about this tomorrow." He leaned down beside her. "Yeah?"
She said nothing. Her chin in the air, she stared off ahead of her. Hatter sighed and walked away, taking off his hat with his forearm and flipping it into his hand.
Why can't she see reason? Hatter thought to himself as he scratched his head. He looked around for a place to sleep, and decided on the tree beside the shelter. That way he would be close to Alice to keep her safe. To keep her safe? He questioned himself, Or to be close to her? He shook his head as he settled himself down in between the large roots of the oak tree, set hi

"Where exactly are we going?" Alice questioned him.
Hatter pointed ahead of him. "The shore." He said.
Within moments, they reached the shore of the lake. It was thickly wooded and it would be impossible for the Suits to find them. That psycho with the ceramic head? Well, if he was indeed who Hatter thought he was, it could be possible.
When they were under the shade and cover of the trees, Hatter drove the boat a little further down shore. They won't find it immediately, at least. He reasoned.
He turned the boat off, and climbed out. He held out his hand and helped Alice out as well. Then he looked around. There were some branches laying around, and he had an idea.
"Wait a moment, Alice." Hatter said. "I'm gonna hide the boat." He covered the boat with the fallen branches, trying to conceal the dark wood as much as possible. When he was satisfied, he turned back to Alice.
She was frozen in one spot, listening intently to the forest. What is it now? Don't tell me that she's a

"Sir Charles Eustace Fotheringhay Le Malvoy the Third." He said proudly, his chin held high. Very high in fact. It's a wonder this guy doesn't just fall over backwards. Hatter thought. "Who," He began after a moment's silence, "are you?"
"I'm Alice." Alice replied, somewhat nervously. The old crackpot makes me nervous too. Hatter thought.
"Alice?" The Knight repeated. "The Alice?" He came in very close to her face, scrutinizing her features. "The Alice?"
"No." She replied, pulling back involuntarily. "Just Alice."
"Just Alice." He pulled back. "huh ."
"I thought all you guys were wiped out years ago." Hatter interrupted.
"Well, you thought wrong!" the Knight replied indignantly. "As you can see, I'm as fit as a butcher's dog!" He coughed.
"Are there any others like you?" Alice asked, trying a different approach.
"Certainly not!" He replied immediately, a laugh in his voice. He turned away and went to pick up his shovel. "I'm a one-off. My nan used

Hatter spurred Guinevere forward.
It doesn't do to dwell in the past. He decided. Every time I think of that guy... His hands gripped tightly on the reins as he stared down at the pommel of his saddle.
Unwanted memories began to swim before his eyes.
"Hey, Hatter!" A young, brown-haired boy came running toward him, waving his arm back and forth in the air.
"March!" Hatter shouted back as he stood to greet his friend.
Even at a young age, Hatter and March had been the greatest of friends. This was fostered, of course, by the great friendship between their fathers.
The memories began to flash quickly across his mind.
Hatter's father and March's father having tea together.
Hatter and March wrestling on the lawn.
Hatter and March running through a garden of white roses.
Hatter and March getting caught by one of the Queen's suits.

Hatter sighed. I was hoping that she wouldn't catch that. He thought. They stared at each other for a moment. "I can't leave, Alice." He said. "Wonderland's my home. I can't just abandon it, despite what I said." He hadn't realized it before, but it almost seemed like a slow tide of change was creeping over him. He was getting tired of hiding. He wanted to get out and actually make a difference. The Kingdom of the Knights had made an impact, but, he had a feeling that Mad March was the catalyst for his change. "I have to stay and fight."
"What?" Alice sounded flabbergasted.
"Seeing all this look! This great kingdom," He motioned around with his arms, "and what's become of it. It's a wake-up call to be honest." He was fibbing slightly. The Kingdom wasn't his only reason, but Alice didn't need to know that. "My people," he began to circle back around the fire towards Alice. "I mean the hundreds of refugees that are all hiding underground, they're all counting on me."

"The Prince?" Hatter asked blankly. His mind seemed to be catching up with him again. "Jack Heart?" He locked eyes with Alice, praying that it wasn't true. Anyone but him "Jack Heart is your boyfriend?"
The doors to the elevator slid open, and he was almost blinded by the light that poured in. They seemed to be on a terrace, or something. A pair of Suits turned at the sound of the door, and started toward them.
Hatter rushed out of the elevator and aimed a punch at the first suit, who ducked, grabbed him by the elbow and spun him around. Hatter regained his footing, and took another swing at him, but missed again. They threw punches for a few seconds before the Suit landed one across Hatter's chin. The Suit grabbed the collar of Hatter's jacket, and began punching him in the face, forcing him backwards towards the concrete railing. He got one hand around Hatter's throat, and pushed him backwards across the half-wall.
Hatter looked down and gulped slightly at

It was a half-day's easy riding from the Kingdom of the Knight's to the Heart's Casino. Needless to say, Hatter and Charlie completed the journey in half that time. Hatter galloped Guinevere until the froth was flying from her mouth and the sweat turned her coat black.
Still, to Hatter, the journey seemed to take a lifetime.
Why am I running off to save her? The most apparent reason flowed into his mind. The ring. But, he knew that that wasn't the only reason. She's stubborn, and insistent, and loud, and... and... Those reasons didn't seem to matter. All he saw was her sweet face, her brown hair resting lightly on her shoulders, her piercing blue eyes, and her pale skin, gleaming in the sun.
He knew then that he would do whatever it took to keep her, and Wonderland, safe. Even, he thought, even if that means saving this Jack guy. He grimaced slightly at the thought of him, but then Alice's grateful face swam across his mind. He sighed, and spur

It's just an ordinary day at the world conference, people debating over oil and nuclear weapons. There are no surprises or unexpected arguments, it is just like every other meeting. And that of course means that America is being his usual self, goofy, idiotic and conceited. For that is the nature of America, doing nothing but reaping in the rewards. It is only natural.
America's fifty states are not present, as always, because Alfred represents them all. Though each admitted state gains an avatar, of sorts, they are but lesser beings. America himself is all of them, he feels what they feel, hears what they hear. He is their "father" for lack of a better word. And when they are in trouble, he will know.
And that is how it happened. He gasped quietly, and knew, just knew, that Derek was feeling the same pain that he felt now. Derek, New York, was bleeding just like Alfred. A giant hole had formed near America's stomach, the blood seeping through his white shirt. No other natio

I had just finished unpacking. I had myself sprawled out on my uncomfortable bed with my worn copy of Romeo and Juliet in my hands. I was trying to pass the time before I had to go to my first class. I had decided to pursue a degree in literature. It was actually Jakes idea. He got me into writing after he pointed out how much I loved to read.

On my daily walk about the internet I often come across some horrible piece of writing at which I'm forced to stop reading and take a few deep breaths to calm myself before either sending a note to the writer, or fleeing in terror. These pieces of writing are usually just an accumulation of terrible spelling, grammar, syntax, and too much or too little plot, description, dialogue or action. Yes, there are stories that may have a lean towards dialogue or action and still look absolutely wonderful – in fact, these are the stories usually best written, because the author has learnt how to use their skills and mediums to produce the best result from a usually disastrous content – but the bundles of words I'm referring to have not had the same care and talent poured into them.
It could be the case that small children and people who don't have English as a

It's fiery breath,

Dried blood upon its talons,

Driving his wings-
To spread his will-
To soar through the sky,
claiming it as his own-
The creatures driven,

Alice and Hatter looked up. An ancient man stood above them. He was dressed in what once was a shining suit of armor. He was completely covered in the rusting metal except for his face, which sported a long white goatee and mustache.
"Saboteurs!" He accused them as they propped themselves up on their elbows to get a better look at him. You have got to be kidding me... Hatter thought to himself. "I was this close!" He held his hands a few inches apart from each other to show the distance. Sure you were old man. "This close!" He repeated. He returned his hands to his sides. "Degenerate bagheads!"
Hatter shook his head, and slowly pulled himself to his feet, testing to see if anything was broken while trying to ignore the lunatic that was ranting above them. He pulled Alice to her feet. They looked around. There was a long root that dangled into the pit on the far side. He indicated it to Alice, who nodded. They soon found themselves out of the pit, and looking it at the tin

Hatter's brain seemed to go into shock. "That's impossible." He said, turning to look at Alice.
"I'm never wrong." Dodo said.
"Where did you get it, Alice?" Hatter rounded on her.
"Jack gave it to me." Alice replied. Hatter felt a slight pang at the look of confusion on her face, but pushed it aside.
"Jack?" Dodo asked her. He took a step forwards.
"Jack Chase, the one we're looking for!" Alice said defensively.
"Well where did he get it?" Dodo took another step towards her.
"I don't know!" Alice exclaimed, taking a half-step back.
"Give to me!" Dodo demanded loudly.
"No!" Alice defied him.
A small part of Hatter was impressed at her bravery. Another part, a larger part, was screaming to him that this was about to go down a very dangerous road that they didn't want to be on.
Dodo turned to the woman. "Take her out!" He ordered. The woman cocked the gun in her hands, pointing it at Alice.
"Are you crazy?" Alice exclaimed.
