Yuletide YearningYuletide Yearning
Rosa stands on her back porch. White covers her dark hair as sadness coats her heart. The smell of baking cookies reaches her nose. Multicolored lights from the neighbor's roof illuminate the creases on her face as she searches the sky for answers. Through the open back door that is letting the cold air in squeezes a slow chorus.
"No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start"
Tears well up in her eyes. She clutches her stomach. Her warm, weeping breath creates miniature clouds while her silent tears rain onto the deck.
"No. No. Nooooo." Her sobs fill the frigid air. "It's not fair! If I'd just met Steven earlier instead of just this year."
Her eyes blur more as a memory comes. A car crumpled. Grill and hood crushed. Smoke rising from the wreckage. Blood dripping from the door and windshield. Two figures slumped in "
She shakes her head to clear the thoughts. "NO! I will not think about my parents so soon." Desperate not to think of her pare

aka Contest Entry for Tg Drode
A drip of drool drops from the chanting mouth, "Who are you? What have you done with Uncle Ben? Who are you? What have " The red head's glazed over eyes don't see the antics of the mostly blond gentleman before her.
"Tracey! Tracey! Snap out of it!" He waves his hands in front of her unblinking eyes.
In the interior of the black van, a gray haired woman in a crisp suit takes a sip from her tea. "Doc," she addresses the graying man lightly slapping Tracey's cheeks, "It's been months. Give it up already."
The third female pushes Doc out of the way. "Men," she says in disgust. The gray haired woman lifts a finger in protest. "Fine, Uncle Ben," she slaps her forehead, "man and former man. You guys just don't get it." She rolls her eyes and frowns at the males. She faces the brain locked member of the team with a forced smile, "Tracey, would you like some chocolate?"
"What have you done Chocolate?" Her eyes focus on the woman in front of
TrivelaJanice rushed towards the dome wall. Well, I guess rushing is not really the word. She limped towards the dome, shifting her weight to her good foot, painfully proceeding towards her destination. She limped faster than she was running minutes ago, then she splayed her hands on the glass and gazed sadly at the crack as it grew and grew until it seemed to stop at about 30cm. She sighed and lowered her head and just stood there, her hands on the transparent walls, framed by the red sand outside. Sitting on the gray thing we insisted on calling ‘grass’ despite our better judgment, I wanted to tell Janice it was all going to be okay. I wanted to tell her it was a superficial crack and that I would fix it in the morning, before I did my rounds checking the air conditioning. It would take me just a few minutes and it wasn’t a big deal, it could wait until the morning, it was just a matter of using a liquid neoplexiglass gun to refill it. The dome was built to withstand a lot

Trust Machines story
Steve raised his eyebrows as he looked at the petite raven-haired woman standing on his doorsteps. At a massive 6'2" and 250 pounds, all of it muscle, without a single gram of extra-fat, he was used to having strange chicks run after him. His body would have been enough to attract most gals, but his job as a firefighter added a special something women seemed to crave, an aura of danger and heroism.
Not that this girl looked like any of his usual devotees. Truth to tell, even those weren't ringing his doorbell well past ten in the evening, but aside from that minor fact she missed the typical 'bimbo-look' he so despised. Apparently, girls seemed to think that they had to dress like a hooker to land with the facsimile of a Greek god. This girl, though, was clothed fairly
Average Guy To Rocker Chick TGBobby is a pretty average guy. He's 17 years old, 5 foot 7, average build, long brown hair with a slightly purple fringe but mostly wears a black and grey striped hat, and wears whatever he can find in his drawer not caring about his appearance. He has left school and is waiting to start college, but also enjoying the holidays doing what he does nearly everyday, either sitting at home on his Xbox, or hanging out with friends in town.
Though as much as Bobby was having the good life, he felt out of place, that he should do or be something different. He could think of nothing though. It didn't help since he didn't have a girlfriend for a while. His last girlfriend had fear of commitment issues but she was honest about it to him so her reason was good. Bobby was hurt at first but he knew that things happen and you gotta move on. It sucked even more that he's a virgin still, he mostly dated girls that were 15 but he had set himself good priories. But overall, he didn't kno
Spending the day with CharlisaEsau Abraham followed Charlisa Brant down the hall of one of the nursing homes in Angel Falls. He was spending the day with his frequent partner. Right now she was taking him to meet the oldest living member of her family, her great-grandfather. She stopped by a door with a placard that said ‘Joseph River’. She turned to Esau and said, “Here we are,” before knocking once and entering. “Hey, great-gramps, we’re here.”
“And early for once,” the elderly man replied. He was laying in bed. “Come on and give me a hand up.” She helped him sit up, and then put her hands under his armpits and helped him transfer to his wheelchair. He looked over at Esau and said, “And you must be Charlisa’s friend.”
“Yes, sir. I’m Esau Abraham,” he said as he stepped over to the older man and offered his hand.
Joseph took it and shook it. “Nice to meet you. And don’t call me ‘sir’. I was

The turtles ran across the rooftop, just after taking out a large group of Kraang. They stopped at the edge of a building and watched the streets below, everyone that is except for Raph. He stood off to the side and was faced towards the general direction of the lair.
“Raph! Chillax bra! Mona will be fine, and if your worried about the two nut head doctors giving away the lairs position don't worry! We made sure they were blindfolded and that we drove around a lot. There is no way in the world they can figure out where it's at,” Mikey hollered back to his older brother.
“Raph,” Donnie walked over to his brother. “Mikey's right. Mona is safe.” Donnie placed his hand on Raph's shoulder, “And at any time you'll be a dad.”
Raph sighed and rubbed his hands together, “We should head back....” Raph's t-phone rang which he answered it immediately, “Hello?”
Mikey and Leo stood and watched Raph who tu
A Mission of Friendship, part 6Between the realms of waking and sleeping, Danny felt a sense of vertigo pass through him. He had been dreaming, and a shudder rocked his body. He wasn’t the sort of kid to ever have nightmares, and this one tugged at his heart.
It was the sort of bad dream that didn’t make a person scream or jolt awake. It wasn’t about some kind of monster or terrible shock. It was a slow, creeping horror, such as one gets when he dreams about his family hating him, or his work failing miserably — the kind of story that sucks the hope out of you.
The discomfort brought him out of sleep, and he exhaled heavily before he sat up and rubbed his eyes. As soon as he opened them, memories of the dream seemed to slowly lose detail. He knew he had seen his mother, she had been dancing with his father, and then Colby was there, but he looked sick and weak, and then there was someone else — a woman with long, dark hair like Colby’s mother, except human-sized, and she was weari
Weird Science-Part 1 [Slob, WG]Marigold Farmer stood in awe of the massive facility, arching her neck back to see just how high the building went. She was no stranger to skyscrapers but this place seemed like something surreal out of the futuristic animes she was so fond of. The quiet brunette had stared for a full minute at the monument to science as she shook it off; thinking to herself that she probably looked silly standing on the curb like that. Then again, most people would question her choice of tight jean against her thighs and ass and an anime t-shirt that clung to her mammories like static electricity as she rolled her duffel bag into the building. The cool breeze was a refreshing contrast to the sweltering heat of the Massachusetts summer, making Marigold sweat like a pig as she walked around the lobby.
“Here at Nexis Labs, we strive to bring cutting age inventions to our current society, benefitting man today to evolve tomorrow!” Marigold heard the corny display monitors chip as if she were b
Youx(My oc)You woke up in a hurry, sweating hard. It was dark in your room, you can not see your own hand. The sound of a window breaking brought you out of your bed, not only you hand a nightmare and now you had someone in your house. You reached to open your door, but someone grabs you pushing you against the wall. You try to scream out for help but a hand covers your mouth. You could see the outline of a muscle man, he was looking at your door. It slightly opens the sound of ringing came in your ears. It burned so bad, you fall to your knees and look up just in time to see the man and this strange white/blue magic. You grow weak and fall to the ground from the ringing and pass out.
When you awake, you were on the floor of some strange room. Out side the door you could hear two voices.
“Snow why did you bring this (Your name)here?” An older sounded voice says.
“ (Your name) was about to get eating my a bloodhound.”“How do they know your name?” You tho
The Masters LamentDoctor.... My old friend... My worst enemy....
It was always supposed to end this way wasn't it?
A great war.... Losing so many that you cared about...
You lost your family, your home, and your companions..
You even lost your best friend...
But that's okay.
You're going to save the day.
You always do.
But you can't save everyone, Doctor...
Someone is always going to die, it's the rule of life.
But one cannot help but wonder why it has to be this way...
You finally found another Time Lord.... Only to learn that he was far too corrupt for you to save him.
And when you finally get through to him....
Doctor, my old friend...
As I lay here in your arms you know that I am dying...
You're begging me to regenerate, but I just can't, Doctor.
If I were to stay here, I would never be happy..
It would be pure hell for me...
Please, Doctor, don't be sad..
You'll meet others who will travel with you.
What's one sorry excuse for a Time Lord like me compared to the friendship of your Compa

Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
