An End

There was a loud boom. Before Hades knew it, the Underworld had exploded. About two minutes ago, the explosion had started somewhere in the Elysium Fields and quickly expanded from there. It even startled Narcissus from staring at his pulchritudinous self as he disappeared. As Hades disintegrated into dust, he smiled. He’ll be back soon.

Jeweler's Watch

Seed beads, focus beads, polished stones, pliers, and all different gauges of wire lay strewn across the desk. The jeweler sighed, fingering a pair of straight nosed pliers. She had her work cut out for her today. One week ago, she took on a commission for a very prestigious client on a whim: to make him three matching sets of necklaces and earrings. That wasn't the hard part. The hard part was that he wanted each one of them to use a certain item in their design, specifically tree rings, fossils, and hourglasses. She took the commission without a second thought, especially since the amount he was offering in return would pay for supplies for

The Statue

A lone stone statue stood sentry over the wide expanse of grass. Its base and legs were overgrown with moss and climbing vines, with small cracks starting to show. Yet, it just stood there, paying the vines no mind. Right below its base, a rabbit warren lay. The mother had just had a litter, and the twelve bouncing baby bunnies had caused the statue to be askew. But still, the statue paid them no mind. Occasionally, a couple rushing through would stop and snap a picture with the statue in its outstretched arms. Over time, this had caused its arms to be discolored and worn down. And even still, the statue paid them no mind, solely focused on b

Adnette dictated her message into the machine, pressed the send button, and watched as it disappeared, off on its way across the world to her colleague living in China. She waited for the “ding” signifying that it made it, and went on to make tea for herself while waiting for Jacques' reply. On the other side of the world, Jacques was woken up by a “ding” on his instant telegraph. He lumbered his way over, dragging his hind legs and tail. Yawning, he burnt a few leaves on a nearby tree. He plopped himself down on the hard rock floor and tore the piece of paper off the instant telegraph and read Adnette's message. It wa

Warmth Lost

The tiny kitten looked longingly into the sky, raindrops splashing onto his face. Normally, he would have retreated into the safety of his mother's warmth, but that was far away now. Sitting down on the cold wet concrete, he looked plaintively at the rushing throng of humans, hoping that one of them would take pity on him and rush him home to a quiet warm den without worry of starvation or of bloodthirsty ferals. He let out a quiet pleading mew. And yet, none of the towering humans bothered to even look. Except a tiny little human, who had saw him and was dragging a larger human behind them. It let out squeals of obvious delight, while the la

The Possibilities of Duct Tape

Frank Wills tore the piece of duct tape off the door. It had no reason for being there, so it had to go. Tossing the piece of tape into a garbage can, he continued on with his nightly patrol. About thirty minutes later, upon the very same door, rested yet another piece of duct tape. Sensing something was wrong, he rushed down to the lobby to call the police. Little did he know at the time, but he had found something that led to one of the most notable scandals in the 20th century: Watergate.

New Person, Old Friend

Years passed since the last time Lousia saw her once-closest friend Janet, who was now sitting in front of her. A decade had changed the two of them greatly. Lousia, who would once spend hours upon hours just trying to make sure each letter in a written report was perfect, now would simply let each word be its own character and roam free. Janet had become a perfectionist, a far cry from the laidback freestyle poet she was back in high school. Seeing each other was like looking into a mirror reflecting their past selves. They talked at length about what had happened to each of them over the years, but the subject soon grew weary as each soon r

The paladin walked into the item shop. Like many others, the items were overpriced, and they would buy anything, but only at an extremely low price. But the odd thing about this one, was that it was run by a little girl and a fairy. An unlikely set of people to own and run an item shop, but they made it work. He was someone the owners would often contract to run dungeon for them, but that didn't stop the little girl from begging him to buy the ham sandwich for 6000 gold pieces (it was a goshdarn sandwich, for goodness sakes) because she had to keep a roof over her head. And anytime he tried to sell anything for more than a measly 100 gold, th

A Fancy of Superheroes

The sun rose on yet another dreary day in a small discouraged kingdom, where its sole ruler, Princess Ducinda reigned half-heartedly. For nigh on 20 years she ruled, with nary a helper or partner. And every day in her kingdom was rife with the plottings and schemes of villainous masterminds, making fighting against hordes of minions a part of every citizen's daily life. The only ray of hope the people had were the superheroes who would pop up occasionally and defeat the current villain terrorizing the kingdom. That, in the very least, would give the kingdom a brief respite, before the next villain would pop up. Many of these superheroes would

My Bio
I am 18 years old and I like to draw, mess with HeroMachine, write, make jewelry, play video games, etc. I also have a little sister who is a little annoying, but is also sweet at times. I somehow got obsessed with traditional fans, but I also have a small obsession with cats. I write both poetry and prose, but I seem to be writing a lot of poetry recently. I go by Crystal and Grace.

I AM PRONE TO MAKE RANDOM COMMENTS THAT MAKE ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE OUT OF CONTEXT. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
