CriticismI thought being myself would solve all my problems.Criticism by ~megalotty1998
I thought it would make myself happier so people could really love me for who I was, not the shell of a person they thought they knew.
Instead my good intentions were met with questions, comments, criticisms, and judgments from the very people who would so constantly tell me to be myself.
Little did they know that those words they spewed left me feeling burned, depressed, and alone.
"This is who I really am" I almost screamed.
Why must they judge me, why must they poke fun at a person who has finally found the courage to become what she has truly been all along?
We are all people, we a

THE FINE LINE BETWEEN VACATION
Inside my skull throbbed an unbearable pulsing that made me feel I was going to have a massive aneurism at any moment. With my legs curled into my chest and my favorite blanket cuddled around me, I weakly opened a water bottle Darryl had bought for me. I actually really hate water, but the gesture was nice. I didn't complain only because I never see him doing nice things for people which made me feel somewhat special; until I had the thought that he's only trying to make me better so he could get rid of me faster because he probably thinks I'm an easy, alcohol-loving girl. Wh

THE TRUTH ABOUT ALCOHOL IS
ALCOHOL SPEAKS THE TRUTH.
It was a Friday night in the middle of July; the air was warm and soothing with not one cloud in the sky. Katie, my best friend for almost eight years now, was throwing a small "bring your own booze" party. I had brought mine and was excited to introduce my wondrous discovery, the "Chocolate Coconut Buzz". I was in the kitchen putting the party essentials away and my liquor bottles in the freezer when I heard someone approaching me from behind. Turning carefully I looked back to see who it was. A hot blush ran to my cheeks as my e

And toothy grin
It can get rather difficult
To suppose you'd understand
So pardon me for not thinking
Of the skeletons hung up
Next to your yellow sundress
It can be easy to forget
That smiles are plastered on
So the cracks can't show

I Want to RecognizeThe Water Scares MeI Want to Recognize by =Starija
Cassandra-81 C81 had a name once. It started with the letter A, she thought, or maybe it ended with an A. She didn’t know anymore; it was the first thing they took when she arrived at the Troy Institute. It had bothered her for the first few weeks, but the more she tried to remember, the more she seemed to forget. When she brought the issue up to the doctors, they repeated what they had been saying all along, that she could not be healed as who she was. To be whole again, she had to rid herself of her past identity and become a new person. They would give her a new name once she was ready.Cassandra-81 by ~TheBloodyEpicPumpkin

The Xavier: Chapter 3At the moment of En'fili's peak, the room blazed with the sound of alarm bells. As a shocked En'fili leapt off the bed, her skin shone a deep penetrating, unhealthy yellow; a yellow glow of terror at the bewildering sound. Nikoli just lay stiff, still in shock at the noise and the startlement of En'fili. Their world of intimate unadulterated bliss came to fall as reality massacred it midway. A booming voice came over the speaker system-The Xavier: Chapter 3 by ~ShadowsOfAVorlon

Soavist Quote: Internal TimebombAs ourselves, only we have the true power to disable our personal explosives. Sadly only too late do we realise this, so when one (another person) wishes to attempt such a feat- allow them. No, they may not have attained the true means to diffuse you, but neither do you more often than not. Even you alone do all this for temporary measures with shoddy tools- you know not how to utilise; for they are yourself.Soavist Quote: Internal Timebomb by ~ShadowsOfAVorlon

What is a Mary-Sue?--Character StudyIf you happen to love writing like I do, you tend to hear this term thrown around every once in a while. Mostly about characters created for fanfiction, but it can also apply to literature that stands on its own. Not everyone knows what it means, so I'll do a little clarification.What is a Mary-Sue?--Character Study by *geekgirl8

This is the big one!Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to announce our next contest!
What the hell is a "scratch that?"
An excellent question! This is the biggest thing this group has ever done. It will be 10 rounds of tournament style writing, with varying themes and writing styles! Each round will last 2 weeks! (Dates will be posted further along in this journal.)
Anyone can enter! We're trying to make this as big as possible, so members, non-members and their dogs may enter! Bare in mind, however, that the very first round will be an audition. Only 50 people will then be selected to go through to the competition, so make sure you write to the very best of your ability!
At the end of every round, 5 people will be eliminated. We will celebrate the best poet of that round by giving them small prizes.
That sounds awesome, but what's in it for me?
Prizes, my friend. Riches beyond your wildest dreams, fame and glory.
No, I lied. Here's what is actual
