'Heat'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short
Notes > For now, this is more of a situation sketch - or even an exercise in description - than anything else, but I am considering drawing it out and, shocker!, even adding some sort of a plot. I just have to come up with said plot. And I must say, what with the mid-winter weather here these days, it's getting harder and harder whipping out that summer-vocabulary. But who knows! Hopefully another update, be it an expansion on this or something else, a whole lot sooner than it took me now.

It was summer, the kind of day Shakespeare would never have compared his love toCollapse )

'Worse'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short
Notes > Which life would've been preferable? Which pain worse? We all look back and wonder, sometimes. Even if deep down we know.

I’ve been through worse than what I now call ‘bad’Collapse )

always the hours

'When death shakes'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short
Notes > 'When death shakes, there's no brakes'. Nothing seems to rattle us quite as much as death; the possibility, the thought of it, the confrontation with it. It is the one point we all live towards and yet, we tend to avoid thinking about it too much, call it 'morbid' and turn our heads away. There's no stopping or changing death; maybe that is what rattles us most of all. Nothing else on this earth is as definitive.

The line 'It is possible to die' is from Michael Cunningham's book The hours. The line 'When death shakes, there's no brakes' is from the 5591 song Mistakes, no brakes.

It is possible; it could happen any momentCollapse )

'Outer glow'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short story
Notes > Michelle requested a follow-up to 'Inner glow', so here it is. Hope you like it darling :)
I think it's just long enough to qualify as a short story, and not just a short drabble-thing.

resist temptation

It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances

As you can see, this LJ has been properly pimped! Some last changes still need to be made, but the main improvements are there. I am quite content with the result. Next time, I'll run through all the entries to make sure it all looks like it's supposed to, and I need to get a new set of icons. Anyone have any other ideas of what I could still change/pimp to make it look even better?

Also, did you notice the advertisement is gone? Cost me 9 of my icons and the ability to change the colour scheme of this lay-out, but it's worth it. Right? (No paid account for me, no siree.)

[ETA] All planned changes are now made: I've acquired a great new set of icons, and checked and where necessary corrected or altered all of the older entries. If you've any advice or ideas on what else I could change, by all means let me know!

'Inner glow'; 'Storm cloud'

Two short ones in one post, both written today.

Length > Short
Notes > Inspired by Blue October's absolutely amazing song Inner glow. Rather short.

You've been lost for too longCollapse )

Title > Storm cloud
Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short
Notes > Also inspired by Blue October's Inner glow. Also pretty damn short.

You howl through the place and leave nothing in tact. You twirl and fly, light like a breeze, fleeting like a gust.Collapse )

'Cigarettes and smeared lipstick'

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short story
Notes > Sabine's prompt, which was exactly the same as the title: 'cigarettes and smeared lipstick'. I hope you like what I did with it ♥

For the record, I am by no means claiming scripts are written this way. I've really no idea, this is just my interpretation.

'Upwards'

A very happy new year and the best wishes for 2010 to all of you! Here's my first story for 2010, written just now. I hope you enjoy it :)

Language > English
Type > Original fiction
Length > Short story
Notes > Another one for the prompts I was given. This one's inspired by one of Alice, who said: 'How about, you walk into an elevator; and when you walk out, the world, or the situation, or the something... is different.' I hope you all like what I came up with.
