March Madness 2007
It's time once again to sign up for March Madness! Here are the rules, in case it hadn't been sufficiently burned into anyone's gray matter last time: 1) Write twelve (down from the required fifteen last year) polished pieces of prose. There is no length limit, but what you right MUST be a short story - not an essay, not a sentence, but something with a beginning, middle, and end (or some alternative alien plot form). 2) Submit each one as either a Scrap or Deviation, send us a note with a link, and AnaisCortland (https://www.deviantart.com/anaiscortland) or I will review it and add it to the March Madness Support Journal. 3) One of the twelve short stories must be a collabor

I pulled it back up just enough to expose my mouth, "Of course I know what I'm doing. How long have I been planning for this, Rubes?" "I dunno – I guess a long time," Talking softly, her gaze moved swiftly from her feet and over the pile of clothes that sat in heaps on the motel bed. "Remember, this is for you," I grabbed her face, sliding my palms across her cheeks and stopping them at her earlobes, "This is all for you." Ruby's deep brown eyes tried to swallow my inten

The Time Before draft 5
The Time Before - a creation story     Before Uithol, the Forger, created the planets and the gods, there was only energy.  He looked around him and knew that nothing could grow in the chaotic and unstable forces around him so he set forth to tame them.  Starting with the worst points in the chaos, he forced them into the shapes of planets and stars.  This was difficult for the energy was too strong and many of his constructions were destroyed as he made them.  Uithol persevered until not even he could count his creations.  With so much of the energy bottled up in constructs, the rest of the energy was considerably more manageable, but stil

The Phantom Shitter
We called him the Phantom Shitter.  To this day, I will never forget his trademark calling cards.  I will never forget the signature stench before entering the bathroom to know that someone, from somewhere within the residence, had left a turd treat for me to discover.  Sometimes it was in the toilet.  Sometimes it was on the toilet.  One time it was on the shower curtain, and crusted over because nobody wanted to touch it.  Subsequently, nobody wanted to clean it because it had crusted over.  The Phantom's shenanigans continued for quite some time, his identity a mystery, but he drew the line when he took a dump in a towel and handed it in t

Trinity The sun filtered through the blinds, onto the bed I was lieing in. I enjoyed the moment, knowing it was wednesday and i had that day off. I was startled out of my revire by a large MIOW!this was unexpected since I didnt own a cat at the moment since Baraby died a couple of months ago. I sat up in bed looking around for the source of the sound, it was coming from the window..but that was imposible! my bedroom was on the second floor. But another distinct miow caused me to jump out of bed and roll up the blinds. And there it was a beautifull tabby, it had three stripes running form its eyes to its tail, which gave it a striking appera

The Dysfunctional Conversation
The Dysfunctional Conversationalist By the time the car had pulled into the small car park on the cliff top, it was already growing dark. The sun had faded into the sea, melting and extinguishing daylight. There were some cars already parked up there, invisible in the dark, and with the vast sky overhead we felt totally alone. I turned the engine off. Silence. I felt tired as my eyes slowly surveyed the horizon: glittering lights of boats and oil platforms twinkled far off; and close by, the dull orange glow of the north east industrial works turned the sky to marmalade and masking the stars. It was a view I had seen so many times before b

Cavort With Death
I stood in the doorway, staring at the room before me. The party was here indeed. The room seemed to echo the maddening cries of silence. I somehow knew my eyes were screaming, flowing with the melody of eternal slumber. This comatose state of thinking seemed to afflict everything in the room, not only myself. Finally this morose slumber was broken as the rustic grandfather-clock chimed. It was 3 in the morning, I was alone. Yes, the party was here. Adorned in my best attire, I was determined to have the last dance of the evening, and I would. I made my way into the room as my infatuate rest was slain by the eternal chiming of the clock. It

Black Beginnings
Black Beginnings        She watched the black paint spread, taking over and creating that ominous feeling.  It seemed to take on a life of its own as it slid down the canvas.  She delighted in the effect the black had on her painting.  The painting, like herself, had been a source of joy and light once.  Now, both had gone cold, masked beneath a dark exterior.        As a girl, her favorite color had been purple.  Purple was bright and happy – not quite as cliched as pink, but girly nonetheless.  Color was often a subtle way in which she expressed herself.  With time, her favorites shifted to the cool colors: blues and greens.  Although b
