Look, it's art, it doesn't need a model, OK?This was written well before I divided the book into three sections, and it was at one time going to be in book II. Eventually, it got edited out and pushed to book III. I was working on the later today, and have been considering cutting it out altogether.Look, it's art, it doesn't need a model, OK? by 914four
I'm of two minds about this, as it neatly answers the question "Why did Chloe begin calling Tanita a Kentauride?" and gives us a bit of insight into Chloe's personality, yet at the same time, it shows Tanita in a way that I'd like to think she's evolved beyond. The thought here is not romantic, but simply about friendship. What do you think? Should I keep trying to fix this, or just cut it out altogether? And if the former, wouldn't Chloe have assembled her IKEA dresser on her own? Any other comments are always greatly appreciated.
Tanita deposited the cardboard box on the bed and Chloe ripped off the tape. She began removing personal objects, a pair of boo
Spirit AnimalsSheila walked slowly nervous and lost under the oppressive dark of the trees that night. An owl hooted in the distance, and closer things moved just out of sight. She could barely see ahead under the dim moonlight. She stumbled forward cursing the lack of a lantern or magical lights as the low branches grabbed at her ratty clothes. No matter how much she rubbed her side, she could not get warm.Spirit Animals by Sassy-Masks
The plain girl sighed and kept walking hoping to make it to her village before she collapsed from exhaustion. If only she could… Out of the corner of her eye she caught strange light. A blue illumination lit its surroundings like fire. She crept towards it and saw an ethereal wolf! It was monstrous in size and body blazed in blue flame. It lay alone resting on its side. The girl stared at it for a moment awestruck by its mysterious beauty.
Suddenly, the wolf’s head rose and its head and ears slowly searched for what observed it. It clearly had nothing to fear. Sheila froze like

The Shape Shifter awoke lying on the ground. He looked up and saw that he was in a large tent of some kind. He couldn’t remember how he managed to get here; all he remembered was that he found the item that he wanted and was on the run. He must have hit his head or been hit by someone or something. The Shape Shifter didn’t think that he had been caught; his species were reptilian and had very keen senses. To sneak up on one was a next to impossible feat. In the shadows of the tent he saw a large four armed being that appeared to be a Darcarian. This at least confirmed that he had been knocked out by someone.
Darcarians were large beings with four arms, who were adept engineers and master weapons smiths. The Shape Shifter got up off the floor and looked around. The Darcarian turned around and glanced at him. The Shape Shifter glared back at it. There were no differences between male and femal
Two Out of Three Little PigsOnce upon a time, there were three little pigs. The eldest pig looked after the interests of his brothers. They lived in three little houses made of bricks, twigs, and straw respectively.Two Out of Three Little Pigs by JoeyLiverwurst
One day, a big bad wolf wanted to build a road where the three little houses stood. He offered the three little pigs fair market value for the three little houses. The eldest pig said no even though his brothers were interested. "No mangy, flea-bitten wolf is going to get the best of me," he vowed.
That night, the big bad wolf huffed and puffed and blew down the house of straw. From his house of bricks, the eldest pig heard the screams of the youngest pig and thought it a shame his brother was too weak to defend himself.
Next day, the middle pig asked the eldest pig to reconsider. The eldest pig said no even after what had happened to his brother. "No mangy, flea-bitten wolf is going to get the best of me," he vowed.
That night, the big bad wolf huffed and puffed and blew down the house of twigs. From
Life's New Changes Part 10“…This is a modern fairytale. No happy endings. No wind in our sails. But I can’t imagine a life without. Breathless moments, breaking me down. The bed is getting cold and you’re not here. The future that we hold so unclear. But I’m not alive until you call. And I’ll bet the odds against it all. Save your advice because I won’t hear it. You might be right but I don’t care. There is a million reasons why I should give you up. But the heart wants what it wants…,” sang Selena Gomez over the revolving music tape in the police station, as if to mock Tiffany’s pain. Tiffany knew it was an old song; the successful actress/singer was now in her 60’s and decided to spend her retirement with her family.Life's New Changes Part 10 by fares002
“Jeeze, these place love to play the ‘oldies’ mom. You must have been what, 10 when this song came out?” said Tiffan
Life's New Changes Part 8Driving around town, Stacey and Tiffany couldn’t find Ryan. It was like he just he disappeared from the face of the Earth. Hours passed without any indication of Ryan being anywhere in town.Life's New Changes Part 8 by fares002
“I don’t think Ryan wants to be found right now,’ said Stacey. ‘I think he’ll turn up when he calmed down.”
“I hope so. This isn’t like him to do just run off,” said Tiffany.
“Well, let’s not forget he just grew four new arms and reacted poorly to it,” said Stacey.
“Mom, don’t defend his actions like they didn’t hurt you,” said Tiffany.
“Sweetie,…” started Stacey.
“What exactly do you expect mom?” Asked Tiffany.
“I expect that you will be the best daughter I could possibly want. I want you to be yourself. I love you for you. What else could a mother ask for,” said Stacey.
Life's New Changes Part 7Walking up to Stacey’s, her mom’s, blue convertible Tiffany touched the hood of the car with her lower left hand. Nodding in knowing that his mother was now with him, Tiffany sighed, looking to her right she looked at the groove of oaks blanketing the large three hundred acre valley near their house. A slight breeze brushed by her face, her hair glided across her face. Taking another deep breath and letting go of her breath calmly, she thought back.Life's New Changes Part 7 by fares002
Growing up all around the Country Tiffany never was able to settle anywhere and gain lifelong friends, which allowed her to concentrate on her studies and do well in school. Graduating from high school she could have chosen any school she wanted to but she decided to move to Champagne-Urbana to go to the University of Illinois on a full academic scholarship. In her sophomore year Tiffany meet Ryan by pure chance. He happened to be walking through the student lounge when he literally bum
Life's New Changes Part 3Tiffany’s tongue hung out of the side of her mouth as she concentrated on the four balls sitting on the maple desk in front of her. Suddenly, Tiffany’s lower arms grab out at the balls, as second later her upper arms grabbed out at the balls, all four hands found their mark and she grabbed all four balls back to her body.Life's New Changes Part 3 by fares002
“Aha! Success,” said Tiffany, grinning triumphal with her accomplishment.
“You’ve gotten so much better Tiff. I’m proud of you,” said Ryan.
Looking over her shoulder and towards the door of her bedroom, Tiffany saw Ryan leaning against the doorway with a smirk on his face.
“What?” giggled Tiffany.
“Nothing, you’re just cute when you are concentrating hard on something,’ said Ryan. ‘You lick your lips and let your tongue hang out of the side of your mouth. It’s just a cute little quark that you do.”
Appearances Can Be DeceivingAppearances Can Be Deceiving by Betawhofic
It was trouble enough dealing with one Doctor, let alone two. Peri didn't think she'd have to deal with herself, an other self, a different self. She stared at the other Peri, with her one hoop earring, biker boots, and bowie knife -- Okay, that was just weird...
How someone so tubby could move so fast she'd never know. She concentrated on keeping up with the Doctor and trying to avoid breaking her ankle on the rocks. "'Let's go for a walk,' he says. 'It's a beautiful day,' he says."
Right, walking does not include a 90 degree vertical surface. Her foot slipped and she yelped as she skinned her ankle on a boulder.
"All right down there, Peri?" he called back cheerfully.
"Just peachy!" she yelled back, gingerly examining her ankle. There wasn't much blood, just a scrape. She turned and sat down huffily on the boulder. He could just climb without her for a bit. She needed to catch her breath.
She looked out over the valley spread below them. She sighed again, this time in apprecia
I Want To Be An Actress prologuePROLOGUE: ANNA'S bedroomI Want To Be An Actress prologue by UPlover
The curtain open revealing an eight year old's bedroom. In the room is a bed, a shelf where books are stored, a drawer beside the bed and drawer on the edge of SL. A few clothes are on the floor. YOUNG ANNA, eight years old, comes running onstage along with ANTHONY, a man in his late thirties wearing glasses.
You can't catch me Daddy!
Oh yes I will!
ANTHONY flies his daughter through the air as she screams with laughter. He flips her on the bed and tickles her as they both wildly laugh. MELINDA, a short, stout woman in her late thirties wearing a robe and slippers along with curlers in her hair enters the room.
Keep it down you two! If we get another noise complaint we are sure to get kicked out of this apartment for good.
It's past your bedtime. Go to sleep now.
That's right we don't want you to snore too loudly in class tomorrow morning would we?
I don't snore!

“That’s Sargent Major to you sonny boy,’ stated Mr. Walker as we harshly walked past Ryan as he threw his hat towards Ryan. ‘Now where is our daughter? And what is so important that you said that it was imperative for us to cancel our night’s plan to be here for dinner?”
“Oh, come off the Sargent Major title with Ryan, Jim,’ said his wife Stacey as she walked into the apartment and took off her black leather coat. ‘It’s been what, nine years since you retired from the Army. He isn’t one of your soldiers.”
“It’s a sign of respect for people to call me that Stacey,’ said Jim. ‘Would you stop trying to belittle my 27 years of work within the Army ranks, it is really hard to for anyone to gain the ra
A New Mermaid's New Found Freedom“What am I supposed to do dad? Live in some kind of sewer?” spat Christina Smith to her father James as she stormed out of the front door, turning towards her dad who stood at the door. Christina stood at a modest 5’ 2”, yet she was a stunning young 22 year old woman. Her small but athletic build, coupled with a C-cup bust size, curvaceous hips, long strawberry red hair that reached down to her hips, and deep ice blue eyes would have caused any guy to drool over her as if she was his next Aphrodite incarnate goddess.A New Mermaid's New Found Freedom by fares002
Her dad, a tall 6’ 4”, slightly overweight red headed man was more concerned with what people in his church thought of him over his daughter’s happiness and feelings. “How dare you Christina! I’m supposed to look after until you can get a husband so he can look after you instead of me. “
“That is such a sexist statement dad. Don’t you get it; I don’t want to b

Up, up to the golden blue sky
To dive into the sea of divine clouds
It would be like the chilly wind's sough
Would it be the same as the roaring sea?
No, it would be better than a shopping spree
Please friend, let me grow my oh so desired wings
So that I can escape those annoying pings and dings
