Pandora's BoxAs the last panel slides back home, intricate and delicate mechanisms slide, intermeshed gears of unreal engineering.Pandora's Box by RedF0x11
The soft click tells my ears that this metaphysical mechanism is once more whole, and that my heart is once more safely enclosed in this box for now.
This is the artifice of nineteen years; the construct that hides and protects my weakest of aspects.
With the final section in place, my heart hidden from even me by the arcane artifice of my own mind, you can finally see the outside of the box.
A geomancy of lines and colours, swirls and stains covers every side of this box, describing the complexity of my life, simple from afar, as a pointillist’s painting; easily mistaken for the tranquil life I thought I had lead in my almost nineteen years.
But don’t look closely, and thus see that the runes and symbols burned into the box’s wood.
As then you’d feel the movement of the panels as I try to find the meaning each arcane etching, then soon you too w
Super HeroThere was once a little girl, who didn't have much time.Super Hero by SeeThroughtheMist
For this little girl was sick, was sick before the first chime.
She was sick on her birthday, and had to lie down.
This is how she found herself in a hospital gown.
She just wanted to rest up before the fun began.
But that sadly wasn't the case, said her bedroom fan.
You see, the little girl was hot from all her running outside.
So she lied in front of the fan, pretending to hide.
Soon she fell asleep, in front of that bedroom fan.
And, like I said, that is where this all began.
Rushed to the hospital when she wouldn't wake up.
The little girl was attached to wires as she couldn't drink from a cup.
Everything was already in place when she finally opened her eyes.
The little girl awoke to a white ceiling instead of her blue sky.
Afraid of where these strangers were taking her,
She leaned over to a nice-looking one and whispered:
"Where are you taking me?" The sheets around her fingers curled.
The nurse replied, "Don't you know? Yo

“You just stand. There are handles on the side that you can hold onto. So don’t worry. Look straight ahead, and smile. Act like you’re happy. Act like you want to be here.” Orion looks off.
“It’s time.” He helps me into my (favorite color) chariot. A voice comes over the intercom.
“All stylists, please leave your tribute now.” Orion turns back to me.
“Remember. Smile.” He laughs and kisses me on the forehead. He leaves me alone with the other tributes.
“Here goes nothing.” I look up and realize that my chariot is second in line. I’m behind Loki and in front of Thor. Loki turns around a glares at me.
“Prepare to die, mortal.” He laughs. Thor chimes in from behind me.
“Loki! If anyone shall die, it shall be you!” Thor and Loki are both wearing their normal outfits. Thor’s hair is slicked back, and Loki’s loo
Avengers X Reader ~ Hunger Games (P1)It was somehow decided that there was to be something called “The Hunger Games” once a year, and different organizations would have to choose six “tributes”, to send into an arena to fight to the death. Apparently they whoever decided this got the idea from a book or something. Anyway, Fury has a bowl of all of the names of S.H.I.E.L.D agents, and he is starting to pick out the six unfortunate bastards that have to go fight to the death in an arena. I squeeze my eyes shut and continue to cling onto Clint’s hand. Tony, Bruce, Steve, and Natasha stand on my other side. All of our hands are clasped together. Fury holds up the first slip of paper. He opens it. He sighs a little before reading the name out loud.Avengers X Reader ~ Hunger Games (P1) by croozer99
“Bruce Bannar.” He reads. We look at Bruce, shocked and upset. He slowly makes him way to the front of the crowd and stands in front of Fury. Fury pulls another slip out of the bowl and offers it to Bruce. Bruce declines, so Fury reads it. H

“Skeletor has departed Snake Mountain in force; his fleet and ships of his allies drew up in array over the sea beyond the Doom Isles – and headed on northwards.” The voice was clear through the comms speaker; all listening could hear – and Teela sat up at once, a light shining green in her e
Pour un instant...Pour un instant... by 914four
As Jacques entered the old train station, he could hear the tinkling twang of a classical guitar playing softly from the massive vintage stereo speakers he had brought from his apartment in Montreal a few weeks earlier. He hung up his coat and was startled to find Tanita sprawled on the floor of the main hall, hidden by the big sofa they'd recently bought at a local thrift shop. She'd dragged the old gym mat in front of the antique cast iron stove, and adjusted the air vent to obtain the maximum amount of heat. She lay on her side, her upper torso flat on the mat and her hair spread all around her head like a walnut crest as she stared at the rafters above her.
“Harmonium,” he said aloud.
“Hmm?” she replied, suddenly realizing he was there.
“This song. It's a classic.”
She rolled upright. “Anik chose this CD,” she said defensively. “I like it,” she admitted timidly.
“It's their eponymous CD,” he said, smiling.
Have to Live With ThatI don’t really know how to start this off. I’ve sat here for several minutes trying to figure out what to say and nothing that comes to mind seems right. Yet, what is right? Especially with this subject. So I guess I will just come out and say it, blurt it out like word vomit because I’m tired of thinking things through and trying to find some way to discreetly say something that isn’t small, isn’t harmless, but actually quite enormous and dangerous. I am an addict. I am addicted to prescription drugs.Have to Live With That by Tris96
It started when I was fourteen and sent to boarding school. I was alone, had no friends, no family, and was just suddenly cut off from everything I had once known. Speed was my thing during those years. Speed and alcohol. When I got into college, I forced myself to quit with the speed though I still drank. In my final years of college, I had managed to wean myself from alcohol too. I s
A Bubble of PeaceThe day had been peaceful with the sun shining bright – almost too bright – overheard. There were no clouds in the sky and Kayla had voiced her protest, saying that she wished there was at least one tiny little cloud to drift across the sun so that the burning heat would subside for just a few seconds. When the sky had darkened and the mood replaced the sun, it was just as silent and just as peaceful. Though slightly cooler and broken by the chirping of crickets, screeches of owls, and the occasional yip yap of a coyote.A Bubble of Peace by Tris96
The crack of thunder was not only deafening, but also split the peaceful setting in half. The silence that followed was as heavy as a bag of sand, as choking as a belt wrapped around one’s throat. Kayla scrambled out of her tent, followed by Trinity. They had already been sleeping in their traveling pants and white tank tops so all they had to do was pull on their boots, grab th

First 26 Comments Gets A Tanka Poem!I'm offering 26 free tanka poems for the first 26 people that comments on this journal entry!First 26 Comments Gets A Tanka Poem! by British-Prophetess
I want to try and improve upon writing tanka poems and this is the best way in my opinion. If you want your tanka to be based on a word prompt, then please do let me know in the comments and I'll see what I can do for you If you don' t know what a tanka is, then here is the definition:
"The typical lyric poem of Japanese literature, composed of five unrhymed metrical units of 5,7,5,7,7 'sound symbols'; tanka in English have generally been in five lines with a total of thirty-one or fewer syllables, often observing a short, long, short, long, long pattern. Tanka usually need no titles, though in Japanese a 'topic' (dai) is often indicated where a title would normally stand in Western poetry. In Japan, the tanka is well over twelve hundred years old (haiku is about three hundred years old), and has gone through many periods of change in style
The sparks that led me to writing! Last week I released my second book D.Cosmic Sonata! It's a beautiful book. Also, guys when I write something I don't want you to look for why I'm writing this or what could be the reasoing behind it. I want people to find their own meaning from my poems. A poem is novel that fills one page. Now I want to talk a little bit about why I like writing.The sparks that led me to writing! by GalacticPB
One reason I like writing is because my father taught me how to write. He taught me how to look at things, how examine things, how to explain things, and he taught me why I should look to understand things instead of running away from them. I another reason I like writing is because it allows me to share thoughts and feelings that I don't have the courage to speak with others. For me writing has given me a path to freedom.
I'm not the smart guy. I'm not the alethic guy with good coordination. I'm not the charming popluar guy that has great people skills. I'm just the
Stop Book Piracy! petitionDear Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.Stop Book Piracy! petition by fanfictionaxis
Did you know that there has been a recent explosion of book pirate sites that feature stolen eBooks and offer UNAUTHORIZED downloads for free?
Do you realize that this not only threatens the income of hundreds of authors, but costs you millions in lost profits?
Did you know that these thieves are so certain they can act with impunity that they proudly display per-title counters of how many downloads they have stolen?
Dear U.S. Copyright Office:
Did you know these thieves have made a mockery of copyright? They believe that you are powerless to prevent this behavior. Are they right?
Dear Internal Revenue Service.
Are you aware that millions of dollars of taxable income is simply evaporating because authors are not being paid for their work?
We are authors who are appealing to you to use your resources to make war on the blatant immorality, illegality and bad busine

Sword art work request.Art request.Sword art work request. by fanfictionaxis
I have an object that I need drawn and I do not have the skill to draw it. And yes, I did try and all that came out of it was a big headache. I have the object that I want drawn seen here: http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h326/fanfictionaxis/Castle%20and%20scenes%20for%20Warrior%20Princess/Tatyanassword.jpg
Where the Thundercat symbol is, is supposed to be a dark blue gemstone embedded into the sword's blade itself. The sword pretty much looks just like the sword of omens but the blade is made of carbon steel, which is a dark gray color, the hilt itself is wrapped in dark brown leather straps.
If you can help me with this, I'd appreciate it as my skill at drawing swords is quite pathetic.
