‘Let’s be real. One of the best things about being a vampire is your vagina not painfully draining of blood each month. Now you get to do the draining, anywhere and any time you want!’  Read more…

A.R.S.E.

 

I’m looking for advice you see,
I have a crush on Ms. Anonymous
But I’ve been throwing lots of dice to see,
If she’s better than Ms. Recognised
Yet, I need to think thrice you see,
There’s another one, Ms. Solitude
She’s also really nice to see
Though cutting in on Ms. Engaged
What should I do? You tell me

They’ve all been at war
Killing me
And the fact of it all
Is I won’t be
The hole at the end of
A.R.S.E.

Living Bridge

living bridge

He was lying down awake in his bed, gasping for air like every other morning for the past month. Staring at the ceiling, he counted down anticipating the end of the pain, but this time it never came. One quick shallow breath after the other, he pushed himself up on his elbows, and groaned annoyed at the sweat dripping into his eyes.

The Gap Between Fanfiction, Literature, and Modern Day Writing

I was going to write on the subject of fan-fiction, since I’ve encountered many people who consider fan-fiction to be trashy. However, in my research I’ve stumbled upon this article- a great piece on why fan-fiction shouldn’t be degraded and considered a lower art form.

The Geek Girl Senshi

Fan fiction gets a lot of weird looks. From the predominately slashy nature of the writing to the more recent exposure associated with “50 Shades of Grey”, it’s understandable that people outside of fandoms just don’t get it. Fanfiction can be an alien concept to those outside of fandom, but here are a few names a lot of people are familiar with: Charles Dickens, Homer, and  H.P. Lovecraft. All considered classic authors that have  something in common with modern day fanfiction.

Of The Wind

The assassination will take place during the Grand Council assembly.

The Grandmaster’s eyes were piercing Sora, their milky hue more disturbing than the young Shugenja would admit.  Why was he looking at her? He couldn’t possibly think…

Haru, you will be the leader. May your body be one with Wind.

Jadeite Empress

A purple drop escaped the gold-tipped fingernail. The Empress stared, fascinated as it evaporated before reaching the ground.
Poison, a marvelous thing. It brought a certain elegance to what was altogether a brutish deed.
“You did well, Ti” said the Empress, her green lips curving into a dangerous smile. Ti knew it was time to leave, but the curiosity became too strong to resist.
“If I may Empress… Why poison? It is not in our clan’s tradition… ”
“Oh, my dear Ti. Have you forgotten who I am?” Read more…

“Are you sure you wanna do this?” said the computer. It was the twentieth time Ali asked and each time he phrased it differently. Something told Nina he was actually enjoying it. He sounded way too cheerful for an AI locked up in the Pure Alliance Compliance Centre, the infamous PACC. The occupants preferred to call it Pisspot Asylum Crushing Citizenry. That was the mild version.

“Are you sure it is the right course of action?” or he was testing her anger treshold.

“Shut up Ali.” she said, gritting her teeth and typing furiously.

“You are playing with the Universe, Nina.” Ali wouldn’t give up.

“Shut. The. Fuck. Up.” of course she was playing with the Universe. That was the only way to get out of this shithole.

Why do I need to succeed?

This question suddenly popped into my mind while I received some heavy blows from reality. I have just begun my first semester at the University of Sydney and although I already had 2 and half years of uni experience from overseas, things weren’t going so well for me. I had issues with the University’s administration, who lost my transcript and blamed it on me (I sent it to their address upon their request). Therefore, they couldn’t transfer my credits from my previous uni. Then I was “randomly selected” to provide documentation to prove I am a legitimate student. They requested original documents (digital copies were denied) or else they would suppress my semester (my marks won’t show on the transcript). Specifically they requested a  document, which  they have lost. I had to spend 55$ in order to get a new transcript to come ASAP.

Short Story: Hope Against Hope (Part I)

My sketch of Sky

Sitting on the edge of Platform 11, Sky tried her best to forget about the nightmare that was about to come to life on the very airship she called her home. She felt the pull of air as her legs danced freely outside the massive metal frame. A friendly technician called out her name, warning her about the dangers of relaxing so close to an open gate. Others would stop by to cheerfully say hello to their favorite pilot, then scurry back to their jobs.

‘As if they didn’t know.’ she thought bitterly. Read more…
