Put tears in their place,
throw yourself to

Release your hair,
Ignore all else.

Para: Love at First Sight"Never again!" Perry growled to himself, getting up from the pile of trash bags he fell into. The endlessly-grinning Mechanical was recently shot out of Ogo's homemade cannon, and now, he was angrier than ever; "Never again!" he repeated, dusting himself off. His eyes scanned his surroundings; judging by the dark atmosphere, old buildings, and rusted lampposts, he was in the bad neighborhood. Perry decided to take a walk back to his apartment to clear his head; thankfully, the bad neighborhood was empty, but he still grew concerned about his safety. "I hope nothing's gonna pounce on me." he thought to himself.Para: Love at First Sight by Lizlovestoons12
Soon, a shadow cut across the sky, catching Perry off-guard; "What the-...?" Perry gasped softly, his eyes widening in surprise. The shadow intrigued him, and he slowly followed it; as he grew closer, he could hear the faint sound of horse's hooves clopping on the ground, "Clippity-clop, clippity-clop." Perry got closer to the strange figure, and once the figure stopped on
RnM: Crikey Loves Meryl Ch.8(Crikey's point-of-view):RnM: Crikey Loves Meryl Ch.8 by Lizlovestoons12
Oh, blimey, I woke up in a cold sweat; that awful nightmare was the worst one I've ever had! I rubbed my head in fatigue and fear; as I looked up again, I scanned the room, thinking to myself. Soon, me eyes fell on the gift I was going to give to J.D. 4-1/2 years ago. I knew I wouldn't hold onto that burden for any more years, so I decided to give it to her, now. I took a look at the clock, 1:30 a.m.; perfect timing for this. I switched on the light, drew up a pen, and set to work: I crossed out the message, "To my dearest J.D.", and wrote, "I'm sorry." Thankfully, I already sent a Valencrisp card to Meryl, but this gift had to go!
After dropping off the gift at J.D.'s apartment, I set off to the seaside to set up the fireworks display. "Hey, boss!" a voice called behind me. "When's the bachelor party?" I looked behind me, and there were me criminal mates.
"'Bachelor party'?" I asked. "What are you blokes talking about?!"
"Well," Li'l Lugnuts began.
RnM: Crikey Loves Meryl Ch.7Today, I was excited; Crikey finally got released from prison, and now, he and I are going to spend the rest of the day, together, on our first real date! He and I walked into the Makin' Bacon with an air of confidence about us, but that confidence bubble burst when a loud, familiar voice shouted from the crowd, "HEY, LOVEBIRDS! "WHEN'S THE HONEYMOON?!" Loudmouth yelled; no sooner than those words left his mouth, nearly everyone in the cafe burst out laughing! I looked up at Crikey, and judging by the red coloring on his face, he was angry and embarrassed! I was feeling the same way, but I just facepalmed, for I was more annoyed than anything else.RnM: Crikey Loves Meryl Ch.7 by Lizlovestoons12
"Mind if I pound him?" Lizzie asked.
"If you please." Crikey replied.
"Be my guest." I added. And with that, Lizzie pounded the tiny Mechanical in one swipe, sending him flying through the air, and into a trash can!
"Thanks, lass." Crikey nodded.
"Don't mention it." Lizzie nodded back.
As Crikey and I took our seat at a booth nearby, we had
RnM: Crikey Loves Meryl Ch.6The next day, I headed to the Makin' Bacon, in hopes that Crikey would be there; unfortunately, he wasn't, but when I approached Robot and Monster, they were looking at the newspaper. "That's kinda strange!" Monster gasped.RnM: Crikey Loves Meryl Ch.6 by Lizlovestoons12
"You're telling me, Monster," Robot added. "He's never been sent to jail for that purpose, before!"
"Who's been sent to jail?" I asked.
"Apparently, Meryl," Robot explained. "Your new 'boyfriend' got thrown in jail after robbing a jewelry store, and he was about to steal a few items from a Valencrisp's store before getting caught!"
"Jewelry store, you say?" I asked. "That's really weird!"
"It's strange, all right;" Monster nodded. "Crikey usually robs banks!"
"But, I wonder why he suddenly changed robbing locations." I mused.
"Well, why don't you go down to the jail," Robot suggested. "And ask him, yourself?"
"I think I will." I replied.
"Hurry back!" Lizzie called as I headed out.
I arrived at the prison, and headed inside; Monster's uncle, Officer Kuffley, was at
Double-Cross My Heart - Chapter 12Double-Cross My Heart - Chapter 12 by BrandonHill
Lyman took his leave as quickly as he arrived, knowing that we would not be far behind. I, however, had been left quite shaken from the suddenness of events. Derek and I had been in physical contact all of the previous evening and throughout the day as we slept, and with the exception of the time we’d shared our mutual dark pages of the past, I had never know him to have been so calm. So serene were his thoughts, in fact, that I believe that if I had asked him to finish the deed he began with me before his courage fell, he would have, in spite of his discomfort, just to make me happy. But the second we heard Lyman’s words, it shattered that admittedly fragile peace as if it were no more substantial than any thin pane of glass. And it was agony for us both. Though he maintained his outward decorum, Derek’s heart was now anything but calm. At Lyman’s devastating words, my mind swallowed a torren

HUMANITY LOST - SAMPLEHUMANITY LOST - SAMPLE by PhilipBrocklehurst
Time: 8:00 AM
Date: Thursday, 31st May 2038 Season: Summer
Schedule for this Morning: Wake Up
Personal Hygiene Breakfast
These words, spoken in a Monotone Voice from the Personal Computer System rang through Eva’s ears, immediately waking her up. She didn’t mind being woken up at such an early time. She thought of sleep as a process of recharging one’s Biological Battery and therefore 8:00 AM was a reasonable time for her to get up and get ready for work. Her Battery would be full enough for her to go through the day.
Opening her weary eyes, she was greeted by the Automated Morning Wake-up call from her Alarm System:
Good Morning Eva
Work will begin in 1hr and 30mns
You have plenty of time to fulfil your daily tasks.
Hearing the mechanical voice trying to speak like a human with sentences like “Good Morning” always made her smile in amusement, and today was no exception. She smiled radiantly and made a cute little chuckle to herself.
The Tribute - Chapter 1The Tribute - Chapter 1 by BrandonHill
1. At least one thousand Tributes must be given. Two hundred fifty from the Fire Mountain Tribe, two hundred fifty from the Wind Rider Tribe, two hundred fifty from the Sand Sea Tribe, and two hundred fifty from the Stone Singer Tribe.
Voran bounded up the hundred steps of the citadel as if they were only two, barely winded and excited with the news. Lazlo trailed behind, laden with the weight of the three satchels that he was holding, each made of thick and tough sand whale skin.
“Come on, slowpoke!” the prince called down to him; Lazlo paused and gazed upwards, bleary-eyed and sweating.
“Your highness …” Lazlo wheezed as he trod foot after leaden foot up the staircase, “I don’t … think … your father … will appreciate … your lack … of decorum.”

5. Tribute may be compulsory or by volunteer.
Voran struggled to keep his emotions in check as he was led down the opulent hallway by his Naga guard. Feelings of roiling, impotent indignation bordered on righteous outrage, and threatened to explode since the High King’s casual spiriting away of Lazlo. He felt that he had so much to learn, and to be frank, being alone with these creatures terrified him on a level so deep that it thrummed in the deepest reaches of his mind like a distant scream.
“My daughter does not care for politics,” the High King had explained shortly after Lazlo’s dismissal, when Voran had asked, rather bluntly, why she had not been present at his arrival. “Like your Lazlo, she is of a scholarly persuasion. Court does not suit her, due to her circumstances.”

4. A tribute must be of sound mind and body, with no severe or grievous wounds or disease.
As their Naga guides had said, the remainder of the trip was hastened after their boat had reached a bottleneck in the cavern. The water began to flow faster, but became shallower, as Nessus used his oar more like a staff, guiding it with gentle nudges against the riverbed and cavern walls. His steadying strikes became more frequent and controlled as the water flowed ever faster, and he steered with precision and skill through the increasingly rough current.
“Brace yourselves,” Khalila warned after some time. She leaned her human half against one edge of the boat, and gripping hard, while the tail of her serpent half gripped the other edge. Even Nessus had lowered himself, placed the oar down inside the boat, an

3. A tribute need not be a virgin.
“Have you been crying?” Lazlo whispered.
Cursing, Voran turned away and dried the remaining tears from his eyes before facing back towards the silent assembly. Lazlo must have noticed the redness of his eyes. He noticed everything, damn his watchfulness. Again, facing the blackness of the pit, he hoped that no one had seen him.
“You fool!” He whispered to Lazlo, who winced with the reproach. “I would rather no one see this …” His words faltered as his anger subsided, and then settled into discomfort, “…this weakness.”
“A prince who can cry is not a sign of weakness, your highness,” Lazlo assured him. “The desert sands and beasts make our lives hard, but only a fool sh
