Shattered Skies, Chapter 47-2

CONTINUED FROM PART 1 Vertex Point One Hotaru and Chibi-Usa's Room "I just don't understand how you're not more scared," said Chibi-Usa Tsukino, swinging her legs off the edge of the bed. Hotaru Tomoe glanced up from her latest book of poetry. She had finished the works of Emily Dickinson, and was now immersed in Sylvia Plath… though there was a lot less of her to get through. The corners of her lips turned up with faint amusement. "Who says I'm not?" "You know what I mean," said Chibi-Usa. "You remember what the Time Reaper almost did to us back on Earth. I mean, I trust Nanoha-chan and everything, she's amazing at strategy, but us go

Chapter 47: Inter-Mission I [Author's Note 1: Hello again, I'm back. What you're reading here is the first work I've done in almost six months. During that time, I've been unable to write due to my struggle with clinical depression… mid-October through February were a particularly bad period. I say this not to sound like I'm making an excuse, but to keep you readers informed of what's happening and why it's been so long. I want to let you know that I never intended to quit writing this story, and that thanks to the tireless efforts of my doctor, my therapist, my friends, and my loved ones, I've finally turned a corner. For the first tim

Run me over, cut me up Stuff pills in me to shut me up Feeling like I'm out of luck Like no one even gives a fuck They hide me, bury me away They chide me, tell me "Not today" My sanity has all but slipped I'm stuffed down deep into my crypt Droplets falling, pitter-patter Disregard me, what's it matter? Thinning strands of thinning hair Too many pills, too dull to care Can't so much as get a word in No one wants to share my burden Bended knees and bended back Future's looking pretty black They say "Just a little longer" That just makes my anger stronger Aging, raging all the time No more justice, rampant crime Planet's dying, we're all fryi

I, a humble journalist, assigned to give a behind-the-scenes peek at perhaps the greatest gathering of magical girls the multiverse has ever seen... Am I qualified for this? I don't

Shattered Skies, Chapter 45

Chapter 45: Little People -VERTEX FOUR: 8.36679- Uminari City Aoizumi Forest Plans. Tactics. Strategies. With her wounded body still incapable of harnessing most of her former power, everything counted on Nanoha Takamachi putting her mind to use. Okay, she thought, trying to remain calm and slip into "warrior Nanoha" mode, as she had in the past. Okay, she thought again, scanning the battlefield. They were on level terrain, a blasted stretch of the park burnt to the ground by the tank's fire. No viable cover within a square kilometer save for the wreckage of the tank, and no weather conditions to take advantage of, either; the night was clear

Shattered Skies: The Morning Lights, Chapter 44

[Author's Note: I feel it's important to explain that Shattered Skies hasn't been canceled or put on hiatus… The reason it's been months since my last update is because the last two months have basically been Hell for me. I'm dealing with a serious health crisis in my family, among many other disasters, so I've been prioritizing my mental health rather than my writing. Now that I'm feeling a bit more stable, I can only assure you that I still intend to continue (and finish) this story, but I must ask for your patience as I get my life and my head back on track. Thank you for understanding. - BHS] Chapter 44: The Trees Are Bare and Every

A Doctor Who Poem

A Doctor Who Poem

A hundred different faces, a thousand different names. One who fights, one who forgets, one who remembers but is never the same. He keeps count of all he’s lost, at night when she’s alone. He doesn’t do the family thing, and yet she has a helpline telephone. He’s the last of his kind, but she’s also the first. Running through time and space, trying to save the universe.

Spotlight

LOVE - KINDNESS - FRIENDSHIP - COMPASSION - HOPE
