Diana sighed and let Stan drag her along. As far as she knew, there wasn't anything(more)
I've been waiting for inspiration to come to me. Thing is, it doesn't happen very often. I love to write, and it's been so long since I've done that, like really done that, sometimes it feels like I've forgotten how. And writing is a part of me. One of(more)

Jake looked around at his friends. They were all starting to lose the beat. Everythig was going out of control. The opposing band, The Necromancers, were dominating their music, and they were surrounded. It wouldn't be long before their music was ended. (more)
I don't understand people who don't believe in happy endings. I understand that bad things happen. Believe me, I do. I've been there. Had my heart crushed, world torn down and turned inside out. Hell, for a long time, I had really intense suicidal tendencies. And if I'm being(more)
What use had he for two sets of keys? The first for himself, surely, this much was clear. But what of the second? To his parents, it might be suggested, but he would rather not. His mother would clean and reorganize while he was away, and never again would(more)
We're all afraid to admit that we have to take some kind of prescription. We don't want to admit our dependence on something because we don't want people to see our weaknesses. No one wants to be looked down upon.

But I'm not afraid. I know I'm weak(more)
I was confused for a long time. Everything had changed very suddenly, and evidence pointed to that not changing any time soon. If anything, it was just going to continue changing. I didn't know what to do anymore - barely even knew who I was anymore. I was waiting(more)
