Lost in Azeroth, Chapter 1: Identity, Part 2
         “Clarissa, get off that computer!” The 16-year old girl heard her mother yelling from downstairs. She looked at the clock to her right and realized that she had been on longer than the allotted time that she could. She should have been asleep right now, but her addiction to World of Warcraft pressed on, and now it was time to face her punishment. Her face not showing the faintest signs of emotion, she headed down the stairs to face her mother’s wrath.
         Ten minutes later, she limped up to her room and strained to get her pajamas on. The lashings had been exceptionally painful today, and she much rather would have faced a dragon instead. She lay on her side in bed, stroking her own hair, her eyes fixed on the computer screen.
         “Surely Assiralc has it better off than I do,” she muttered to herself, careful not to make any excess noise. She was probably right, t

Lost in Azeroth, Chapter 1: Identity, Part 1
         Assiralc and her companions ran fast from the dragon approaching them. Scars obliterated any grace that the young elf might have at the moment, but those were only temporary. The four elves were on a simple mission to gather some rare herbs, and were not informed that there was a dragon in the vicinity. While they collected the plants, that were already damp with the moisture that grew on the inside of the caves, the dragon must have been returning to its lair, and upon finding the trespassers inside, rendered them a tasty morsel. So, he attacked, taking its prey by complete surprise. It was in the scrap fight out of their mess that Assiralc received her burns and scrapes, defending her partners as they ran.
         Right now, they were still ten meters ahead of her, and she looked over her shoulder to notice that the dragon was chasing her on foot, toying with her. She put more energy into her sprint, forcing herself to move

Paternal Tragedy
What am I doing here? I ask myself, knowing full well the answer. I am here because of my own wrongdoings. I stare at the big double doors of the hospital; waiting for someone to tell me it’s all right, that I’ll see her again. It’s far too quiet in here. Is it just me or am I more alone than I ever have been? The double doors walk open and the nurse scans the room for its only occupant. Noticing me, she begins striding towards me. Seeing my panic-stricken face, she lets her expression show an aura of gentleness, which I appreciate.
“Are you with her?” She asks, knowing I understand what she’s talking about. I nod slowly, fear rising inside my face. “You’re allowed in, then.” She gestures for me to follow and I rise, following her through the doors and down a long hallway. Eventually, we reach our destination and turn into a room.
In the middle of the room, lying in a bed, covered by the typical cyan sheets and wearing her white gow

A New Life Chapter 1: Saved, Part 1
Jayne relaxed her muscles as she lay comfortably against the brick wall behind her, shutting her eyes in an attempt to shut out the world around her. The late-evening commute was the only thing making any noise anymore. Most people were at home, comfortable in their own beds, readying up for the next day, but not her. No, she was perfectly content with a knapsack as a pillow and her own sweatshirt as a blanket.
The streets were nothing unfamiliar to her. She’d lived on them most of her life and near them all of it. She had prepared herself to live forever. The memories of her mother’s tears were still fresh in her mind, but she had her mind made up, and she wasn’t going to give anybody the satisfaction of seeing her crumble. Her father vouched to get rid of her, and her mother did nothing about it. There was no way it was worth going back.
She looked up into the dark, empty sky, and took a deep breath. The vapor of it was visible against the bitter air. She was given
:icondragonmark01:Dragonmark01 1 7
Surrounded by nothing
But the sights and sounds of nothing
Perched on the edge of humanity
And slowly falling off
I brace myself
Expecting to feel the air that isn’t there to rush past my face
But getting nothing
I look up
And see nothing
I am lost in the depths of nothing
The mocking glares of God burning holes in the back of my neck
I scream with all my might
But nobody hears me
I choke as I realize that there is no air to breathe
And I hear the cursed god above me laugh as I slowly fade away
:icondragonmark01:Dragonmark01 1 1
Run Away
Your whole world crumbles down
There is no one by your side
Love the hate and terror
Or it will bury you alive
With every thrust you manage
You put your training to the test
Fighting for your very life
Never a moment to rest
Run away
Take my hand
You're not alone
Together we stand
Stumble upon the broken body
Of your mother where she lays
All your courage leaves your body
With your righteous alibis
Run away
Take my hand
You're not alone
Together we stand
Don't slow down
We must make haste
Never look back
No time to waste
:icondragonmark01:Dragonmark01 5 10
The smile on her face was enough to light the stars
The warmness of her voice could relax the angriest of tyrants
To see her go is almost more than I can take
For I have lost a true friend, and I doubt to ever have her back
Maybe she'll return...
In all of her grace and peace
And give us all another chance
To bask in the depths of her care and compassion
Something that I'm sure we will all grow to miss
She will never be forgotten
Her legacy will remain forever in our heads and in our hearts
And that will never change
To forget would be a crime above all crimes
It would deny her the respect she truly deserves
Goodbye, friend. You will be missed.
:icondragonmark01:Dragonmark01 0 25
I'm sorry I'm not perfect
It just wasn't meant to be
The heartache I deserved
Has brought me to my knees
I don't get how you walk away
And leave me here to bleed
But the feelings that I had for you
Were never make-believe
Sometimes I still cry at night
In sadness and in fear
Bringing back the memories
I will forever hold dear
With every thought I have of you
I shed another tear
You don't know what it's like
To just want to disappear
Stuck alone in a corner
I see the lights grow dim
Don't ask me why I cut so deep
I did it on a whim
The image of the knife in my chest
Is a vision rather grim
And you will be forever blamed
When in pools of blood I swim

Anthem of Solitude
A flood of memories
A field of broken dreams
A web of city streets
One true love I'll never meet
Still I hear people say
Fortune will come my way
But be that as it may
A lonely man I stay
Stay alive, I do
Through troubles old and new
Now I present to you
My anthem of solitude
:icondragonmark01:Dragonmark01 5 8
Help Me
Is this what is has come to?
Empty promises
Broken dreams
Shattered hopes
Kind of makes you think...
Had God intended this along?
All the suffering
And the pain
And the grief
That every human being suffers.
Why would he hate me so?
What had I done to infuriate such a great being?
It's the world conspiring against me.
Every day is another disappointment.
Another chance for the world to show off its power.
Against me.
Nobody else.
Just me.
As if I'm deserving of such hatred
I'm not.
I don't think
I need answers.
Am I as bad as I'm made out to be?
I feel my heart pounding in my throat.
Every thought making me sicker.
And sicker.
And weaker.
And more helpless.
It's only a matter of time before I give up.
Before I give my life to the devil
In exchange for my freedom
But there's hope
I won't deny it.
There's hope.
In someone who I'm not even sure exists.
In the one person who can save me.
The one person who can make me happy once more.
Bring life into these faded eyes
And love into this brok

Fiction by Avenged Sevenfold
Now I think I understand
How this world can overcome a man
Like a friend we saw it through
In the end I gave my life for you
Gave you all I had to give
Found a place for me to rest my head
While I may be hard to find
Heard there's peace just on the other side
Not that I could
Or that I would
Let it burn
Under my skin
Let it burn
Left this life to set me free
Took a piece of you inside of me
All this hurt can finally fade
Promise me you'll never feel afraid
Not that I could
Or that I would
Let it burn
Under my skin
Let it burn
I hope it's worth it
Here on the highway, yeah
I know you'll find your own way
When I'm not with you
So tell everybody
The ones who walk beside me, yeah
I hope you'll find your own way
When I'm not with you tonight
I hope it's worth it
What's left behind me, yeah
I know you'll find your own way
When I'm not with you
So tell everybody
The ones who walk beside me, yeah
I know you'll find your own way
When I'm not with you tonight

Blood of the Damned Chapter 1 - Trapped, Part 2
Derek pounded against the edge of the field with all his might, trying to escape, but to no avail. This was a force field. He had no way of getting out, and by the looks of it, his friends had no way of getting in. Lisa, one of his most trusted friends, stood in front of him, trying to reach out to him. Her lips were moving in some sort of scream but nothing got to him. To let her know, he put his hands up to his ears, shaking his head. Remembering what he was up against, Derek turned back around to face the monster. He drew his swords, knowing he had to fight his way out of here.
He lunged at it, swinging both swords cross-body to ensure a wounding blow. Usually, he would consider it a killing blow, but with a demon, who knows what might happen? Absolutely casual, the demon sidestepped him. Derek felt rage fueling through his body. This was how it was going to be; simply fun and games. Not turning back around, he sheathed his swords. From a pouch he wore on his side, he withdrew a han

Blood of the Damned Chapter 1 - Trapped, Part 1
"What in the..." Eleanor Kelly, more commonly called Ellie, gasped as she stumbled backward. In front of her, the massive figure rose and approached her, ready to strike. He brought down his sword heavily, and Ellie only barely escaped the blow by rolling quickly to her side. With no hesitation, she jumped to her feet and ran away, letting her feet carry her as far and as fast as they could. As quickly as she could move, however, she could sense the presence of the monster closing the gap between them.
She tripped over nothing, her excitement and fear catching up with her faster than the monster. She tried to get to her feet again, but her shoes were smoking from the friction of them against the pavement below. She rolled over, groaning at the pain and staring in morbid fear up at the monster, finally giving up. As the blade came down, she wished to herself that she had gotten to say goodbye.
The screams vibrated off the walls and carried far down the cavern, causing Derek and his frie

The Perfect Disaster (Chapter 1)
Chapter 1
I wish I could say which year it is, but I started losing track after the day that it all happened. December 21, 2042, the day that was predicted the world was going to end by unknown causes. Many predicted that there was going to be a solar flare to strike the Earth and reverse the magnetic poles; others predicted that there was going to be a 'Demon Armageddon', but none of these predictions came true. No, in fact, the world didn't come to a halt from natural causes. It was because of the human race itself. "START" and "START II" both had ended, so we were no longer on good terms with Ruthenia (previously Russia). Not to mention, Illyria (previously Korea), finished their nuclear warheads right as the treaties ended. But, Seres (previously China) had begun work on a bio weapon to destroy our countries' capitals, and cause as much mayhem as possible while other countries invade. START couldn't have ended at a worse time; we've never had so many enemies at once.
Every day, nei

Screaming Alone
That mountain in the distance,
I climbed to the peak above,
Through the resistance,
To see my love.
But when I looked out,
Over the vast land,
A dismayed shout,
Across the sand.
All around the trees had died,
Mourning the endless climb,
So I sat down and cried,
With my new time.
It had been a journey to the end,
One I knew would be the worst,
Never did I break or bend,
Feeling as if cursed.
Staring out over the barren waste,
My heart sank in demise,
Leave with haste,
Heart of lies.
I had come here to witness,
What lay far beyond,
Now I knew this,
No longer fond.
The dreamland ideas died that day,
Sank the child's heart,
Starting the decay,
Poisonous dart.
To the my sore knees I fell,
Eyes wide with lips parted,
As sand began to swell,
Where had this started.
A scream echoed alone in this place,
My heart beating too fast,
Abrupt to stop the race,
I wouldn't last.
Falling to rocks long below,
Echoed scream in my ears,
It was all too slow,
Following my tears.
:iconkawaiiday:KawaiiDay 3 1
I sit here in this desolate hall
Watching the dust trace patterns on the floor
They act as if I am not here at all
Do I breathe no more?
I feel my heart falter
I search for escape
But only the path to pain is paved
The mouth to hell stands agape
I think it is to late for me to be saved.
The flames begin to rise.
I remember falling through time
The images bleed  together like childhood paints
I faintly hear the distant funeral bells chime
I see the lights glowing around the saints
The rushing stops.
My blood stops, chilled in my veins
It is true then that I am gripped by death's cold hands
I run swiftly out into the unfelt caressing rains
How easily shift life's sands
I know the truth
My heart flutters worriedly in my chest
Why did it have to end so?
My body to early taking part in the unnatural rest
How was I ever to know?
It was destined my end would come by his hand.
My heart always beat for him in life
He wanted something more
I wished nothing more than to remove his strife
