The Box
The Box By Christopher M. Collins Two wooden boxes, one large, one small. As one rolled away into the flames, the other sat upon a woman. A woman veiled in black. The lid lifts. Brightness invades and something temporarily catches it The blue was deeper than her eyes. Where hers seemed icy, the petals were merely cool. They shared sparkle, a spatter of metallic flecks upon the paper. The stem attached, it slotted into the centre of reds and purples and yellows. “Is there anymore of that blue?” She had been startled by a boy. His hair was a black she hadn’t noticed and the eyes a brown as warm as chocolate. “I’m

ToT The Three Tigers Of Toidew
Tales of Toidew: The Three Tigers Of Toidew By Christopher M. Collins Welcome weary travellers! It seems you got here despite my intentionally bad directions… Well done! I must apologise for not coming out to meet you in the usual fashion, but due to a mix up in paperwork, my mother was recently buried alive and I am in a rotten mood… I specifically checked the box to have her killed before burial… Anyway! I forget myself. Welcome to Toidew and, more specifically, the most amazing of smoggy taverns, The Duck in Red Stilettos. Now, I see a few familiar faces, right Steve? How’s that ugly wife of yours? Ha ha! Glad

I don’t know why I let them drag me here every weekend. I don’t even drink… I guess I’m set for another night of watching everyone’s stuff for them while they gradually lose their heads in intoxication… If only it wasn’t so badly lit by this awful neon glare… Then I could at least read a book or something… Try to block out this horrible thumping that apparently passes for music. I really don’t know why I bothered… “Hey Dan!” Oh yeah that was why… “Hey Dan! Aren’t you going to come dance with us?! It’s no good you just sitting there!” I can bare

ToT Captain Whiskey
Tales of Toidew: Captain Whiskey’s Fall By Christopher M. Collins What makes a town great? I’ll tell you. It isn’t size and it isn’t the shape, or even where it‘s placed. It’s history! Welcome to the simple town of Toidew. Here history is in abundance and often told within. From the almost clear skies over lush green fields, through a small gap between mountains we go. This is Toidew, but we’re heading for a more specific location. Along the small cobbled streets, left, then right… No not that right! the next one my good fellows. We don’t want you getting lost now do we? Up the stairs

Life Gives You Stubble
I don’t feel like shaving anymore, The hair has got too tough, Ev’ry time I try removing it, It just proves too robust, There’s far too much to just unroot, The stage is set, The actors mute, It’s just not going anywhere, Stationary beyond compare, Time wounds all heals, Time turns all wheels, Time never stops when you wish that it would end, But I needed time to make a friend, My face is still unclean as before, But I can bear it, I think I can, I’m not a man, But know I am, Time may not be the best it’s true, Yet without time, Yet with out time, There wouldn’t be much left to do…

Chapter 23: Birth
Birth By CMC Chris and Liz came to in a strange world of pure light and darkness. “You ok Liz?” Chris coughed out the words, totally exhausted. “Yeah,” Liz replied. “I think so… What about you?” They slowly sat themselves up and looked for each other. “Where are you?” Liz asked her. “I’m just behind you,” Chris told her as she edged closer, not able to stand yet. Liz turned to face her, a great relief washing over her as she saw her. “Thank goodness,” Liz sighed. Chris finally reached her and practically collapsed into her arms. “You think we’re dead K

And not just in the obvious ways ^_^;; Well basically I want to do a photo manipulation thing or two in connection to my old kinda Sailor Moon fancharacter story...

But if anyone has some suitable stock photos or wants to make them or sees some somewhere that might be good for my purposes... Well if you could let me know ^_^;; I guess I'll start with the first chapter... Don't worry I won't make you read it lol I'll give rough description of the people I need. For now I need a girl and a boy, pa
