Anarchist's TangoYou are what you are,Anarchist's Tango by LadyBethsheba
I take what I see,
My choices spin you,
Your choices fling me
It's a circle, a square,
It's a twelve-sided dance,
Match your steps to the chaos!
Leave the movements to chance!
We can fling ourselves madly
All over the place,
Just as long as your fist stops
An inch from my face
Watch the anarchist's tango!
See the freedom ballet-
Just make sure you know how
To get out of the way.
ChaosI never thought I’d end up here with blistered lips and broken expectations.Chaos by Potatobunzz
Stuck in disappointment, a deep cut, a painful abyss, with bad navigation.
Somewhere in the madness I managed to make a fool of myself.
My life scattered on the floor like a pushed over, broken shelf.
The space is unending
Time is forever bending
I’m stuck in a mess
a dangerous rat’s nest
Voices screaming around me, asking the impossible.
There’s no way to satisfy them, to sell my worthless soul.
Twisted legs tripping over twisted dreams
I lost myself and my sense of reality.
Help me... help me...
guide my swollen feet.
I am a lost ghost in a world of chaos, surrounded by war and deception.
Lies are bullets, morphed lenses that wreck good perception.
Cluttered, disorganized, destroyed, an anarchy around us
Helpless, distressed, a complete loss of focus.
The suffering continues
I have little to lose
With nothing to do
I go on.
A vision within a chaotic mindA brief moment crystalizes before my sight, a vision within my mind.A vision within a chaotic mind by haro-sensei
I sit here on the border, growing fainter, growing colder, nowhere to turn a chip on my shoulder.
Either side and endless haze, eternal loss, a branchless maze.
Left is Darkness, deep, heavy, black, assurances you won't come back.
Right is Light, pure, blinding, bright, faithfulness you cannot fight.
On the border, day meets night, creating a space of sweet twilight.
In between we can survive, but on either side no one is alive.
My mind stretches on, for ever it seems, beyond sight, beyond truth, and my wildest dreams.
However here in the center I stand, for either way lies no mans land.
Fall unto darkness, be bathed in light, neither way feels quite right.
Order or loss, good or bad, angry, happy, scary, sad.
Neither side, though perfect they be, is suited for reality.
I cannot wade into the dark, no see in light just as stark.
Purest light, and darkness cloud my mind, and yet in either we're just as blind.
The FibYou sit across from her, your arms crossed and a stern look on your face, unaware of the Fib that's perched on your shoulder. Fibs are small – at least they start small – with sharp, purple claws and dark brown fur. Some people say they have wings like a bat, but those people have never seen a Fib. Fib's only look like they can fly because of how high they can jump. When it comes to a meal, a Fib is able of easily scaling the largest of skyscrapers – just to find you.The Fib by VexatiousV
You scratch at your neck, unsure of what you're going to say. That's the Fib, running his whiskers along your skin. It is not a sign of affection. They live off of lies – the bigger the better. Normally, a Fib will only feed on natural liars, people who will consistently feed them day after day with their pathological tendencies, but when a Fib is truly hungry, he'll groom his next meal. Sometimes you don't know why you lied to someone. It was a silly lie, you tell yourself. You meant nothing by it
Weathering WoodsBIG MYSTERY IN SMALL TOWNWeathering Woods by GuinevereToGwen
The town of Weathering has recently witnessed some strange events, beginning with the death of Melissa Carter, a local student of Big Bridge High School, that devastated students and teachers alike. Her body was found in the woods east of town, with multiple bruises and cuts on her arms and legs. Her throat had been slashed and her blood drained, making concerned parents wonder, is Weathering still a safe place to call home?
Not only that, but cats and dogs seem to be disappearing from households across town. Their corpses have all been found around a week after their disappearance in the same woods in which the police discovered Miss Carter’s body.
“We are still looking into this,” says police chief Allan Sanders. “Our top priority is the safety of our citizens and their children, and we will not stop until the perpetrators—

I Am AmadeusIt started with a mix CD.I Am Amadeus by GuinevereToGwen
Taped to the back of a stall door in the second floor girl's washroom, it said "Listen to me" in Sharpie on the front, tiny music notes floating around the words. A little note tucked into the pocket added, "If you dislike this playlist, put it back for someone else to find."
Awkwardly enough, I was sitting on the toilet when I first saw it.
But I took it, of course.
I could barely contain my excitement all day, impatient to listen to the mysterious disk. Despite my unbridled enthusiasm, I couldn't quite bring myself to show it to my friends. There was something intimate about my finding it first. Out of all of the people in the school who could have stumbled upon it, I had managed to get to it. It sounds self-obsessed, but it made me feel special. Unique.
Sitting on the bus and shaking with anticipation, I wondered who the person who had left it was. Playlist Girl, I had started calling her in my head. Was she someone I knew? Was she in one of my classes? One

“Sorry. It’s just that being inside for this long isn’t working for me. I gotta move.”
“What do you mean ‘this long’? We’ve only been here since sundown.”
“Ha! That’s easy for you to say. You always loved this kind of thing but it’s like a cage in here.”
“So much for all that training I suppose? Well, you won’t have to worry about it for much longer. There’s about 20 minutes until midnight.”
Agent Noah Conrad lowered his glowing wristwatch and returned his eyes to the tripod-mounted spotting scope he had trained on the hotel across the street. His partner, Agent Arthur Williams, anxiously paced across the dark and empty room they had chosen for the stakeout. Although Noah insisted he would adapt to the scents in the abandoned flat, Arthur tried to clear his nose of the dusty odor in the air.

YOU WAKE UP
YOU LOOK AROUND
A Simple Story (1 of 26)It's a simple enough story to start, and it starts like so many do. It starts with a storm. Some say the gods storm when there's fire in their bellies. Others say it's the gods fighting. Others say it's the way of the clouds, and gods ain't got nothing to do with it. Way I see it, clouds, gods, or just dumb luck, it was a hell of a storm, and without it, well, without it we wouldn't be sitting here.A Simple Story (1 of 26) by echo-mlb
She found herself on a boat in that storm of storms, and that's never the place to be. It wasn't a big boat, nothing more than a sail to catch, a rudder to steer, a hull to hold her, and a full balloon to keep her flying. She found herself near thrown clear of her boat, but she managed to hold on.
The storm pulled her sails away from her, picked her up and threw her across the sky, skipping her off the cloud floor like a flat stone over across a still pond. She was thrown clear of where she thought she was, and ended up someplace she couldn't pin on any map. The only reason she stopped, was
All is Lost (One Piece poem, Dressrosa spoilers)A silent prison is all he has left, but silence is the last thing he wants.All is Lost (One Piece poem, Dressrosa spoilers) by MajorasMasks
Bound in seastone chains, he can't even move, and the pain in his chest is driving him insane.
He doesn't remember if they gave him first aid, and keeps shifting in and out of consciousness while dreading the moment lights will be turned on.
Strings have fallen—everything has fallen—and only his ambition is keeping him from falling apart, too.
He's naked now, bare eyes blinking tiredly in the darkness, bare shoulders trembling against the cold floor, bare thoughts threatening to escape his lips.
The shades the coat the smile the mocking remarks... They're all gone, pummelled away by the embodiment of "inherited will."
He has been defeated, and soon a justice not his own will come and claim his soul.
Before his unshielded eyes, memories from a hellish past turn into visions: his father's bloodied head in his hands, soldiers from a holy land after him, failure in his heart.
He has failed
SHREDS OF DRESSROSA (One Piece poem, spoilers)(From) the spoiled son of self-proclaimed godsSHREDS OF DRESSROSA (One Piece poem, spoilers) by MajorasMasks
the kid who fled from his own flesh and blood
the sole survivor of a white storm of greed
the beasty fiery teen grown-up in the streets;
one peaceful girl who was pushed to fight
two cold-hearted sisters shaped by their past life
an abandoned baby deemed a useless being
and the baby-man remembering his lost family;
the once monster-toddler now in a death squad
the former slave's tears hidden by a glad facade
who met the young rebel of his noble origins ashamed
and hunted by his brother's red undying flames;
(to) the one dreaming to be the King of the Pirates.

which were the odds
of surviving back then?
You never showed tears
concealed behind shades
yet you wept on that day
under their vengeful stares.
A helpless, frail body
you were but a child—
maybe nasty, misguided
but still an innocent life.
Yet they harmed and mocked—
their frustration and sadness
and pent-up hate for your kind
all misdirected at you—Why?
Why living like them, if people
are all the same? Why giving up
on power, if they harm and slay
and abuse as well? Why, Father?
Your Brother was weak—or so
you believed—he didn't protest
but accepted everything, while
a voice in you cried, "FIGHT BACK!"
A proud, strong will to always abide
a force within you to rise 'n shine
above all those fools who did dare
to make YOU shake and cry in pain.
"I won't die," you screamed, "whatever you do,
"I will survive and find the very last one of you!"
And then you would kill them, they d
'Closure' (Harry Potter poetry, contains spoilers)Closure'Closure' (Harry Potter poetry, contains spoilers) by MajorasMasks
Ancient dust I breathe on the floor,
I'm not going to run away though,
Yet I feel scared, scared to die...
Farewell my friends, farewell dear life
The final mission, the secret unleashed:
Why did I fight? For today to perish?
A green-eyes-shaped destiny waits:
Can he kill me? I'll find out any way
So, in the forest I've dragged myself,
Only my own act of this play is left,
And soon realization assails my soul
Together with "I-open-at-the-close"
A cold golden Snitch my shaking lips meet,
"I am about to die," I say with a whiff,
And then all of them appear one by one,
Albeit just faint shadows of the ones I loved
I'll use all the courage they will inspire
To confront him whose fate matches mine
Ushered by the fast beats of my heart--
the moment has come, the showdown at last:
I won't stumble
I won't crumble
I won't cry
...because I am

Awakening (One Piece AT fic, Dressrosa spoilers)Sengoku?!Awakening (One Piece AT fic, Dressrosa spoilers) by MajorasMasks
Law winced upon hearing that name. The former Fleet Admiral was the person his benefactor had worked for before being killed to save him, many years ago...
"Let's move! Those bloody marines have started searching for you!"
After pondering it for a moment, Law decided to follow Bartolomeo and the others. Not a Shichibukai anymore, he was a wanted man again and could be arrested, so he scrapped the idea of talking to the old marine.
"I just remembered I need to do something, go ahead without me!"
Law stopped in his tracks. He should have imagined it; when Luffy was involved, things never went as planned.
What do you have in mind, Mugiwara-ya?
If the other captain intended to delay their escape, then he would have enough time to question Corazon's superior... It would be risky, but it was worth a try.
"I'll come with you!" he called after Luffy, while the others ran ahead to the Eastern Port of Dressrosa, where they would be waiting for them.

After the Fall (One Piece fic, Dressrosa spoilers)Law woke up to a dull pain on his right shoulder. Suppressing a groan, he clasped it with his left hand and opened his eyes.After the Fall (One Piece fic, Dressrosa spoilers) by MajorasMasks
His head was still resting on the scabbard of his longsword as when he had fallen asleep, but thanks to his padded hat it didn't hurt.
Without moving, he looked around through half-lidded eyes. In the dim light, he recognised the small mill where they had been brought to hide from the marines.
Luffy was still sleeping; his crewmates were sprawled on the floor around his bed, and only Nico Robin was gracefully resting on a chair near the table. Their back against the wooden wall, Kyros and that idiot of Bellamy were snoring, too.
"Ouch!" Law hissed between his teeth as another burning pang assailed him, shooting through his right arm this time. The fact that he could feel it was a good sign, but he wondered if the powers of that dwarf, Manshelly, were enough for it to completely heal.
Maybe, I need antibiotics... He felt a bit feverish, but that wasn't what

Yet, it was his duty to take him into custody. That was an obligation he had put upon himself to begin with, so he couldn't really complain.
Now, it was time to even the score with the one whom he had once called brother.
The tall man's hands trembled slightly as he took off his large burgundy mask; it was decorated with a faux beard and long black feathers, and a frowning face appeared from behind it. A blue four-pointed mark was tattooed under the right eye of the man, and dark red lipstick painted a fake smile on his features.
Once a marine—and now a member of Cipher Pol Aigis Zero—the blond agent's name was Donquixote Rocinante, and he was the younger brother of the infamous Heavenly Yaksha.
After slackening his black tie a little, the CP-0 agent took a deep breath and looked at his feet.
Code name: 'Corazon' (One Piece fanfic, revised)Rocinante's black feather coat was getting wet. Beneath him, the snow was mixing with his blood as it melted from what little warmth he had left.Code name: 'Corazon' (One Piece fanfic, revised) by MajorasMasks
He had at least a couple of broken ribs, and burning twinges of pain from the bullets still in his body assailed him when he tried to get up; he would have probably screamed if one of them had not pierced his lungs, making even breathing close to impossible.
His head was spinning, his limbs were going numb, and the metallic taste of his own blood was sickening, but he kept fighting.
He couldn't die, yet... If he gave up, Law's voice... Law's cries would be heard throughout the whole island.
Please, Law, run!
He coughed and almost chocked as a sudden gush of blood filled his month. The warm liquid trickled down his chin, his heartbeat becoming fainter and his breath more laboured with each passing second.
Things weren't looking good for him, but even in that situation, Rocinante's last thoughts were for the child he'd managed to save fr

Names are important.
There's a truth hidden in a name, and the adept can uncover this clue to the true nature of things. This was known to the young traveller, who now traded the right side of the mountain path for the left, where she thought the wind and the flying snow to be less intense. It had seemed an attractive route on the map, but the name of this Flensing Pass had been a forewarning to this night's hardship: its high altitude and north-western trajectory, straight as the blade of a knife, gave wind, snow, sleet and ice free reign. The orcs of the region believed that the Pass was where the god Bahgtru had accidentally dropped the axehead he had been forging, and the bare, steep rock-face on both sides certainly endorsed this impression, more so because this night, each crack and furrow had been clogged and glazed over by the flying ice and snow.
The young traveller knew she would not be running into any orcs tonight: her destination was already too close-by for that, and even

3: No, they’re doing something else…they’re kissing.
2: They are. Just like the other ones. It seems sweet, but peculiar.
3: It is. Why do they do that?
1: I don’t know. It doesn’t look particularly enjoyable. It looks quite…wet.
2: I think it’s sweet. A strange way to show affection, but a sweet way.
3: I wonder why they choose each other to kiss. Why not anyone else?
2: They love each other.
1: Are they even capable of love?
3: I think so.
2: They wouldn’t be kissing if they weren’t in love.
1: What about lust? If they’re capable of love, they must have lust. That’s probably what it is.

INT. MAINTENANCE DISTRICT HALLWAY - NIGHT
A hand glides down a wall holding a paintbrush, belonging to a TEENAGE BOY. He stands in a hallway, empty in an eerie way, its walls a dull, grey-green colour. A paint can rests next to his foot on the tiled floor. He paints a mural of a tree, brightly coloured and contrasting with the dismal colours of the walls.
EXT. GRASSY FIELD - DAY
Flashback to a beautiful day; the sky is bright and sunny. A tree mirroring the illustrated one in the mural basks in the sunlight. They are almost identical. Animals scurry through its leaves.
The sky darkens abruptly, and wind rustles the branches of the tree. Its violence grows with the quantity of menacing clouds obscuring the sun.
Suddenly, the tree is ripped out of the ground and flung into the sky cluttered with debris.

The day was the kind where you walk and walk until you look down, and then you see the tightrope and your depth perception is gone. All you know is that there's nothing to hold, and the ground isn't ready to catch you.
I hate crying. I always cry in public. It's a cycle, a hole of darkness; you cry because your day was a string of bad hours cut from every other day in the past two years and it just fell on you then. After, you calm down and pass through a couple generic groups of minutes where everyone dances around you, careful about cutting their feet because the broken pieces are just lying there- no one wants to get cut. And then you go home, the last thing crashes- a minor thing, on any other day would be that, just minor. But today, you shatter. Then you force yourself to cry until they're dry heaves, everything's shaking, the broken pieces are cutting your feet- Alone.
On Trafalgar Law's backstory (One Piece analysis)To tell a story, you must do research.On Trafalgar Law's backstory (One Piece analysis) by MajorasMasks
Even when writing a fantasy, it's important to tie it to the real world and to real events, or at least to get inspired by them. Otherwise, your story could feel too generic and not compelling. This also applies to comics, of course, and the example I'm going to use is from a manga, in other words a Japanese comic.
The manga I'm talking about is One Piece by Eiichiro Oda, and even if I'll try to avoid major revelations, if you aren't up to date with the Japanese chapters it would be a good idea to stop reading now. Instead, if you either know about the most recent events in the Dressrosa story arc or don't really care about spoilers, please read ahead.
I don't want to bore you, so here you are just briefly recap the latest events shown in the manga: Trafalgar Law, one of the most prominent character of the aforementioned story arc, who is currently fighting with the protagonist (the infamous Monkey D.

Sora fell back another step and found his back against the trunk of a large tree. His bare chest heaved. His arms and legs felt like lead weights from constantly dodging and defending, and his hands stung from the vibrations being sent through them again and again.
He looked up and glared jealously at his friend and new mentor, Tri, who stood whistling nonchalantly with two swords in hand. ‘He really is too strong,’ he thought bitterly.

The Secret and the ReplyOriginal Short StoryThe Secret and the Reply by FunkyDreamer
The sound of rain drops falling wasn’t heard anymore, and I finally took a step out of the shop I was sheltering in. It was a usual Monday in May, and I was on a shopping trip in that small district where I heard the prices were cheap. My parents are working overseas and I’m living by myself, not that I’m complaining. I’m already 16 years old. Still, being a girl without a guardian doesn’t feel safe no matter how many people are around you. I sighed as I was thinking about the homework I still have to do once I get home, not to mention laundry and cooking the food I just bought. Even though I’m used to it, it’s still tiring.
Out of the blue, I heard crying.
I looked to my right, then to my left and then back to the right.
I tried to figure out where the sound came from. I probably shouldn’t have done that and just ignore it like I ignore everything around me outside my house, but
never mindI guess it’s kind of funny, if you think about it. You always see in the movies – in the TV shows – people running and screaming and praying and stuff. That’s what Hollywood always thought it would be like. Some sort of ‘death cloud’ or something – or like an asteroid or something like that – that just happened: that just totally hit everybody by surprise.never mind by andrewpom
People have known about it for months. It’s not like in the movies. The word ‘inevitability’ comes to mind: and hey, guess what? Nobody cares to run from the inevitable. It’s pretty stupid – isn’t it, if you think about it – how people, in the movies, try to run from inevitable death. Everybody has decided what they were gonna do today weeks ago, maybe even months ago. Say goodbye to family, spend time with girlfriend, et cetera et cetera. As with the Kubler-Ross effect – or whatever it's called – p
12.20.12“You’re going through with this?” asked Clement, glancing up from the glass of brandy in his hand. It was a tradition between them, meeting and drinking and being as merry as their situations allowed, but this evening there was no merriness. A tense, grim atmosphere had descended upon them despite the luxurious setting and the city below.12.20.12 by MeadowMaiden
“Of course,” answered Haydn, standing at the window. He appeared to be surveying the city, but in truth his eyes were focused solely on the massive building beside their own. “There is little choice now, Clement. The people are expecting it. I should not disappoint them.”
He glanced over his shoulder and smiled wisely, as if he knew some great secret that Clement could never even begin to fathom. Clement hated that smile, and he averted his eyes after a moment, looking around the hotel suite. The man at the window had always loved luxury—who didn’t?

Everyone is hiding.
It can't be true that the world is ending-
Or is it?
Confused, I take another left-
Still, no one there.
I let out a sigh and watch my breath gather.
The cold is eating me alive.
The crunching of my boots on the sparkling snow-
The only sound to be heard.
A bustling city turned into a ghost town,
All because of some ancient quacks?
But then a voice, muffled by wind.
My eyes move on from him.
I was never one to humor the crazy.
"Get a job; you're gonna wish you had one,
When the world DOESN'T end."
He yells unprintable words, flailing violently.
His words don't faze me.
The world can't end yet,
I don't want to be alone.
If ever my secret gift failed me,
I don't know what I'd do.
Three wishes in return for a good deed,
Almost, but not quite.
When asked one thing that I could wish for,
I wished I'd never die.
