Stuff I like. And I like a lot of stuff.

Not that it's a bad thing.

The Dark Carnival by Darknessismyfriend

My god, where to begin? First of all, I loved the story. It's a haunting, enchanting thriller that gave me the greatest pleasure to rea...

Lights pulsed. Smoke filled the stage. The singer paused, panting, a step away from the mic. The crowd was dead.

The flies haven't yet buzzed, nor has security realized what's happened yet. The lead singer hasn't even registered what happened yet.

In all honesty, no one really knows what happened.

There are theories, of course. There's always theories. Aliens. Terrorists. Wrath of God. Among others.

I think they weren't hardcore enough - that the guitar solo, so often described as killer, ripped through the air and ripped through their souls.

One thing's for sure; that was the death of death metal.

Same group of friends as "Lemon drop", same night, but we were talking about the group 'Blood' and then this came into my head.

The girl with the yellow hair is not your friend.

You know this girl - the one with the sherbet yellow hair and the lime-green eyes. Her eyes never seem to shine, merely gleam.

Her words are daggers. They sting and leak acid. Even at her kindest, burns light up your arms.

She's not evil, but she can't ever be your friend. She likes sunsets and romantic comedies. She has a laugh smooth as moonlight, and a smile that melts chocolate. She likes to read aloud, not because of vanity, but because she believes that the power of word is awoken in voice. She's human and complex and beautiful, in her own way.

But don't be her friend. Because, eventually, you will be more than her friend. And then, she won't want to see you any more, because things don't feel natural, like they did before. And then she'll leave, but not leave. She'll want to stay friends. Best friends. Just like before.

But it's too late. And now, every word burns.

The girl with the yellow hair is not your friend. She will always be so much more.
Lemon drop
I was hanging out with a group of friends and I overheard this chick debating sherbet flavors. The first sentence popped into my head and I couldn't not finish it.

So I haven't done a journal entry like at all in the past few months, just wanted to give an update.

I am crazy busy (thanks theater) and have had almost no time to myself, so naturally writing has been a bit dry. I do have some decent common app essays that I may post but I'm undecided. 

I just wrapped up Servant of Two Masters and I'm now working on Bye Bye Birdie. I was going to work on Urinetown but it fell through. Still disappointed in that.

I lost, then found, all my stuff for Steve's story. I also got google chrome working again and I know all the ins and outs of google drive now. Which makes me very, very happy. 

So, fun stuff. I will try to upload more, I promise, but no promises. I know I want to submit to my school's Litmag and my school's newspaper, so I'll probably upload those. So yeah, that's pretty much it.

Share a status update? What is this, Facebook?
My world is spinning.
I swim in classes and clubs and homework.
Friends and memories and childhood weep
And in my school-work my blood does seep.

My lids are dark while my eyes hold false light.
I'm filled with useless knowledge.
Regurgitated facts sit, wet and still,
On tests and essays, straight from my pill.

Needed skills are not taught
But I'm still required to learn them.
I feel stuck in a system which
Will chew me up, spit me out and kill me with meds.

I fight this factory and
Try to keep my name
Because at the end of the day
I won't play their game.
50. Brick in the Wall
This is a product of me being utterly exhausted right now and my extreme dislike of math class

The theme is breaking the rules and yes, it's a Pink Floyd reference

Born and raised on the east coast. I am a firm believer in "If you don't know, shut the hell up". I'm an intellectual bad-ass and proud of it. I write anything from horror to love stories. But mostly dark stuff: guess that's where I'm at in life.

And as for those who came to "troll" on my page because I am a "fucktard", I don't appreciate it and I kindly ask you to send me a note with your thoughts on my writing instead of slander. Thank you.

I prefer prose, but whatever is easier for you to write is easier for me to enjoy. As for theme...............would you be able to do a conflicting narration, one of a transcendentalist and one of a dark romantic? That would be wonderfully delicious. So sorry if it is difficult, and you do not have to do it; I may do it myself, should I have time, but I want to see how you would do this. Thank you so very much.

So sorry its taken me forever to reply, my laptop crashed 5 days ago and I just got it 2 days ago and I've been real sick with the flu for 3 days and counting. :sick:

I will get back to all promises and regular programming before this coming Monday evening though. :la:

My apologies for any inconvenience I may have caused! :sneeze:
