paper writing is good for my blog

Enjoy every little thing that life throws your way. The sunsets, the takeaways, the dogs, the laughter, the moon, the drinks and the soft toilet paper. Your happiness is too pure. You must wake up and understand that you are living someones dream. You are lucky enough to have so many good things, even if they are hidden within the bad. Enjoy everything, you never know how long you will have them for.

Be a Better Writer Spell Bag.

What you’ll need:

  • Small bag/sachet. 
  • Small piece of paper, and pen.
  • Your favorite incense (mine is Dragon’s Blood).
  • A gemstone (I used Dragon’s Tooth Coral). 
  • Green candle wax: To represent success and abundance.
  • Peppermint oil: Promotes concentration and regeneration.
  • Cilantro: Brings peace to your home (or wherever you write), also helps attune yourself to your soul.
  • Dandelion: Increases psychic ability and opens the mind. 
  • Rose leaves or petals: Increases passion and motivation. 

What to do:

  1. Light your favorite incense to cleanse your space.
  2. Rub gemstone with peppermint oil. Remember, a little goes a long way.
  3. Hold gemstone over the incense smoke for a little while, then set it near by to charge.
  4. Gather the Cilantro, Dandelions, and Rose. Place them into your bag. Shake it up a bit.
  5. Take your small piece of paper and write “Writer” on it, along with any symbols/sigils you’d like to use if applicable. I wrote the word in both Theban and English. 
  6. Fold the paper, then seal it with green candle wax.
  7. Place your charged gem into the bag along with the paper. Shake it up again.
  8. Now get to work! Start that novel, or that blog you’ve been contemplating. Good luck!

Thanks for reading! And as always, you can personalize this in anyway you’d like. And if being a good writer isn’t something you are trying to achieve, with a little research you can work this spell to fit your needs. For any questions, or even suggestions, please feel free to visit my ask box.

1st October, 2017.

It’s a pretty slow day at work today. In between my free hours, I decided to I decided to copy down some essay topics/ ideas onto my journal. I keep a Literature Journal specifically for essay topics/ideas, class notes, insights, list of sources, etc. 

Most of my essay topics/ideas revolve around anything interesting I read or watched recently. I like to jot down small notes on my phone and save them for in dept analysis later on. Really good ideas that might later be turned into a full length paper get transferred to  my Literature journal for reference. 

Most of the stuff, though, is just crap. I keep those around purely for cringe for their cringe factor. Laughing at your own stupid ass ideas is kind of fun. 

So, I said I would do giveaways by quarters, and well over 500 (how? why?!) of you lovely people have joined me on this weird ass Tumblr/Dragon Age trash can ride. As a thank you for hanging around and putting up with my nonsense:

ONE lucky winner will have a choice of ONE of THREE prizes! A SECOND winner will get to choose from the remaining two, and a THIRD winner gets the last one! Now, what are those prizes? 

Keep reading

Hey y'all!

I’ve been editing papers and statements of purpose for friends for about 2 years…but now I need to use this gift for some extra income. So! I promise I will rip your essay to shreds and then help you rebuild a paper that’s so good your professor will cry tears of joy!

I edit blog posts, college admission, academic and scholarship essays. I’ll even edit an email for you (I’ve done it before if you think I’m kidding).

Hit me up for prices if you’re interested. If you’re not looking to have things edited, then a simple reblog of this post would be a great help too! Help me spread the word!

Thank you!

Hello!! I'm the UMAT anon from before! Thanks for the advice :) omg I find the understanding people the hardest one as well, like I always have two options that I can't seem to decide, and there's always words that I don't know! How did you improve those, and in general basically English cause I'm not that good at English either haha did u stick to like a study timetable for UMAT?

cute! is that IU in your icon? Omgsh, your blog is just so niceeeee! Followed you back so I can reblog you for my main haha

Hmm, well at the time, my friend photocopied a few practice paper exams for me, so I just would write down all the word options (usually 4 words for each question) and study the dictionary meanings. If you can manage to get a few papers I think that would help. And I didn’t have a study timetable, I barely prepared for it LOL I just did it so that I wouldn’t have any regrets (which is good because otherwise I wouldn’t be an optom lol)


STUDYING FOR HSC ENGLISH ADVANCED

Area of Study and Module Essays

  • As for English in general, I really hated it, but I mainly improved because I would write a lot of practice essays and then send it to my tutors for feedback. 
  • Unless you’re a natural at English, I would advise that you disregard what the teacher says and memorise your essays. I can’t write something under exam pressure that still makes sense, so memorising helped me to deal with exam anxiety as well. However, there’s a way to do this so that you can answer 90% of questions thrown at you. 
    • The school gave us like a bunch of practice essay questions at the time based on past exams, and the questions can be grouped together into the different issues they ask you to talk about.
    • Have all the quotes and techniques written up in an extra-long exemplar essay.
    • The format of each sentence inside the paragraphs should be like 
      • “The [author/playwright/speaker] 
      • [illustrates/demonstrates/other action verb] 
      • [some facet about the theme of the paragraph] through 
      • [alliteration/metaphor/symbolism] which 
      • [insert consequence e.g. emphasises the blah blah blah]”. 
    • I dug up my old English essays to find you an example :) (I did As You Like It for my main text)
      • “Duke Frederick paradoxically announces “her very silence, and her patience/Speak to the people”, and banishes her, touting “thou art thy father’s daughter, there’s enough”. The high modality and use of verse illustrates the dramatic tension of the scene, and has illustrated Rosalind’s filial ties restrict her expression of outrage at her displacement”.  Yet, Celia’s antithetical statement that “Now go in we content/To liberty and not to banishment” allows her to embrace the wider world of the forest.”
    • You can of course, rearrange the elements of the format above so it doesn’t make your essay sound repetitive and makes the sentences flow nicely. 
      • You can see I save on word count by using the technique (antithesis) as an adjective, as opposed to saying “Shakespeare uses antithesis in Celia’s statement…”
    • Then change the introduction + the topic sentence + the concluding sentence in each paragraph to suit the exam question. You get better at changing these the more you practice, don’t worry!
    • It’s even easier for the questions where you get to choose what issues to talk about. 

Some Real Tips for Creative Writing

As for creative writing, that was also mainly just writing stories again and again and getting feedback from the teacher. 

Just so you know, for my exam, I wrote something based around culture. Basic story was pretty unoriginal: girl gets invited out by friends, but like has to take care of grandmother, was going to ditch grandmother to go, but then has internal monologue, *insert angst about how different her culture and friend’s culture was*, *some memories about grandmother*, *sprinkle some weather parallels her internal strife*, /struggle/, and then runs home, *insert comforting imagery of cultural foods and items* for bittersweet ending in 1200 words. Somehow this was the one story I got full marks from LOL

  • For some reason, the English teachers always badgered you to write something original, but then they were like write what you know. Which kinda threw me for a loop for ages, because I was awful at making up plot lines. Stick with writing what you know, the story turns out much better. 
  • Just write like one super good story with all the elements of the area of study in it, so that you can add elements of the prompt. 
    • English teachers always badger you to use the prompt properly, but no one can think of stuff on the spot, so again I just ignored their demands. 
  • But like there should only be one “complication” or else you won’t be able to resolve it in 1000 words
  • Likewise, no story should be spanning more than one day. You can span one week if you do something like “After a week had passed”. 
  • Always write in 3rd person just in case they complain that your writing has too much monologue. English scarred me and now I can barely read first person stories without feeling irked :’(
  • Find a balance between monologue, outside action/dialogue, and descriptive imagery. This is something that you should specifically request from someone who is reading your story to comment on (most of the time when people critique your story, they’ll pick at small things, but can forget to give you advice on the big picture). 
  • Likewise, find a balance between short sentences and long sentences to alter the pace of your story. The monologue should have both types, descriptive imagery will always be long so it slows the pace of the story, and dialogue can be varied to alter the story pace. 

Hope this helps you write awesomely for English!!

Hello! I’m writing a paper for school on gay Hamlet... do you happen to know of any good critical sources I could use for research/backup? Thanks so much, love your blog 😃

Hey, thank you so much! I really appreciate that!
In terms of academic sources for queer readings of Hamlet, the short answer is unfortunately no.
For one thing, I’m not a literary student. Im actually a video editor and cinematographer. I have a lifelong love of Shakespeare, it’s like, my all consuming passion. But I do not actively study it. I didn’t go to college to study Shakespeare or classical it.
More importantly, despite the fact that readings of Hamlet as gay or bisexual or gender fluid are now fairly common, the interp is often completely disregarded or look down upon by many in the academic Shakespeare community. There are an uncomfortable amount of articles about queer subtext in Hamlet that are needlessly condescending.
Queer interps of Hamlet have existed for literal centuries now. This is not a new idea. Probably the most well known is the book The Mystery of Hamlet, which, while initially viewing the text through a very straight, cisgendered lens, has now weirdly kind of turned around and become a good example of queers subtext in the piece.
The film adaptation (with Asta Nielsen) is actually well known for being aggressively queer.
The Christopher Plummer Hamlet, made in the 60s (a time when it was actually illegal to portray homosexuality on tv), heavily relies on the gay Hamlet theory.
Yet most academic articles I’ve read about queer subtext in Hamlet often have question marks in the title, or will start with stuff like ‘I absolutely hate this interpretation, and anyone who disagrees with me will probably just call me a homophobe.’
Which is really shitty, because you’re basically immediately undercutting anyone’s counter argument by saying they’re just an asshole who make snap judgments about you.
And this is not specific to Hamlet, by any means. P much any queer reading of a Shakespeare play that is not Twelfth Night or As You Like It is often looked down upon by Shakespeare snobs.
Going back to Christopher Plummer’s Hamlet, I actually got into a fight once w a real snobby asshole about queer subtext in Shakespeare, and when I mentioned *that* production specifically and what it did, they legit said like, ‘oh, really?’ in a tone indicating that what they really meant was, ‘I’m disappointed that he would stoop so low as to gay it up like that’. And I s2g, I almost wanted to pull out an ouija board and summon the ghost of Achilles himself to murder that bitch. Just,,murdered w gay incarnate.
So yea, I feel like that does really indicate that there’s a serious divide between the people publishing these academic papers and the Shakespeare fans who are actually reading the plays daily, and who are putting them on, and who are engaging with the community.
So, while I unfortunately can’t give you a lot of good recommendations, I *can* point out all the examples of queerness in the text for you if you would like that. I would also very highly recommend you ask this question to @thinkofaugust, who is like, a legitimate Shakespeare/lit scholar Who I’m sure can name way more academically published papers about the topic than I can.
I am genuinely flattered that you asked me though.
I hope you find what you’re looking for!!

11 Questions

Tagged by @sonador-reveur @paratmin and @oneamateurgirl1612 Thanks for tagging and sorry if I missed anyone, mention notifications seem to be AWOL 😀

1) How many works in progress to do you currently have?
Loads, I have several notes pages of vague ideas and half rhymes. Some of them are destined to remain unfinished though 😂

2) Do you/would you write fan fiction?
I lack the planning, stamina and concentration needed for things longer than 24 lines, so probably not gonna happen.

3) Do you prefer real books or ebooks?
Both, I’ll read anything I can get my hands on 📕📗📘📙📔📓📖📱

4) When did you start writing?
I started this blog in 2013, but I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember 📝

5) Do you have someone you trust that you share your work with?
All of you lovely Tumblr people 😁 My family have probably read 100-200 of my rhymes at most, not because I don’t trust them. They know about my blog, they’re just not that into poetry. Plus the thought of reading 1000 poems is a bit daunting 😂🤣😱

6) Where is your favourite place to write?
On the couch with coffee ☕️

7) Favourite childhood book?
Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl and anything by Paul Jennings

8) Writing for fun or writing for publication?
For fun and entertainment, if I was writing for publication I’d be a very disappointed poet 😂

9) Pen and paper or computer?
iPad or iPhone mostly. I do write out finished poems in notebooks though

10) Have you ever taken any writing classes?
Nope, it’s something I’d like to do one day though

11) What inspires you to write?
Everything. I write down ideas when I have them so that when I’m struggling, I can go through my notes and something generally pops out. Failing that, I read loads of poetry which is inspiring. Poetry Prompt blogs are always good for inspiration too.

To those of you who find presenting or public speaking nerve wrecking, I got some good advice for you! Public speaking and presenting is one of my strongest skills I know I have and I shall pass on my knowledge to you in hopes that this helps you get better at this very important skill. I have made a similar post in last studyblr which was under the same URL but it was a side blog, in case you guys somehow bump into it. I decided to redo it on here since this is my full time studyblr. 

Preparations 

Outline What You Are Going to Say and Study It! Don’t prepare your speech and then not practice it cos you won’t know what the hell you just wrote down! Carefully outline your speech. 

  • The best thing you can do is actually write it down on good old fashion paper and pen. From my experience, I tend to memorize my speeches and presentations better when I write it down versus when I type it.
    • Prepare flashcards if it helps you. Write the main points of your speech on them to remind yourself the message that you want to get across.
  • Recite it. Take the time to speak out loud, whether it be to a friend or by yourself. This way, you can pin point any trip ups you have and anything that doesn’t sound right and tweak them right away. 
  • If you created a presentation, go over the slides and make sure you have relevant information. De-clutter slides that have a bunch of wording on it and add some visuals like pictures and small video clips. This will make it much more interesting and help others understand better, especially for people who are visual learners like myself. 

What Not To Do

I feel like its better telling you what not to do instead of what to do just cos. (I put some what to dos in there but its okay it’s kept to a minimal and it is very useful advice many people told me it helped them.)  

  • When you prepare flashcards, please don’t read word by word what you wrote on them. This can take away from your speech or presentation because you are looking down at your cards and not at the audience. Trust me, it can get real boring when someone isn’t giving their attention to the audience. It makes your speech less interesting 
    • If you have a presentation, DO NOT READ WHAT IS ON THE SLIDE! People can read for themselves. If you wanna prevent this from happening, use as less words as possible on your slides and more visuals. This will make your audience not only to pay attention to you, but also makes them create connections between what is on your slide and what you say. It’s a trick I have used so much cos most of the time, people are more likely to actively listen to you if your slides don’t have a bunch of wording on it. 
  • Don’t dance around. You’re main goal is to get people to pay attention to what you are saying, not what you are doing as you are presenting or speaking. The best thing to do in this situation, is if you really need to move, walk around slowly. Take you’re time and look at the audience. Take a pause to stand still and speak. Do it in a calmly manner, is what I am trying to say. I know that I get very jittery and overly energized so this helps a lot. 
  • Try to refrain from using um a lot. Use transitional words. It will help you deliver your speech much more smoother and sometimes it can make you sound fancy and interesting to the audience. 
  • Don’t give into your fears. Have confidence. Don’t succumb to your fears and anxiety. Just remember, you got this. Be assertive when you speak and be sure of yourself. Never question yourself. Even if someone asks a question you don’t know the answer to, tell them you’ll get back to them or that they asked a very good question and you will take it into consideration and find the answer to it. This is how you build trust in your audience. 

The rest is up to you guys. I’ve given many people this advice and they have told me it was the most useful advice they were given. Trust me on this, I have been in the performing arts since I was in 2nd grade and I still remember what it feels like to have stage fright or what it felt like to be so nervous before going up to speak into a microphone. Although I don’t get like that anymore, I always remind myself of these little tips and I’ve pulled through. If I can do it, you can too. You got this!

Hello! So first I have to confess that I'm in love with your blog! Is just too beautiful for this world. Now, I want to ask you if you happen to have a good source of scientific papers that are free? I'm writing my thesis and as poor as I am, I cannot buy all the papers related to my research. And sorry if I couldn't express myself well, English is my second language and I'm still improving :)

Hi! Aw thank you so much! There are a few sites you can use to find open-source scientific/biological articles. Depending on your subject you can use PLOS-ONE for example, but species descriptions might be found in ZOOKEYS or ZOOTAXA. You can also use Google scholar in order to find more information/sites and googling “open source articles” might work as well. 

I’m a bit worried you can’t use your local institution in order to find articles, since every university or museum has some sort of license. Try asking around; how do your colleagues do it?

Hopefully this helps!

Hey! Are you okay? It's been so long since Punk, and I don't want you to feel pressured! I don't mean to offend, but how is that going? I absolutely love your writing and reading about someone so similar is just beautiful and I'd love to read more! I hope Punk is coming along! But in the meantime, do you recommend any blogs or stories that contain any Avengers(bucky,steve,sam etc) x chubby reader? Xx

Hi nonnie. Yeah, when the depression kicks in I lose all will to write and all of my confidence. But I’m almost done with chapter 11. It should be up tomorrow. I feel horrible for keeping you waiting on it. I just want it to be a good chapter and I feel like it’s better in my head than on paper. As for fic refs @promarvelfangirl has two amazing series called girl like her and relapse which is the follow up to the first series. These were the first chubby reader fics I read and they’ve stuck with me. I’m sure there are more (I know I’ve read them) but I can’t think of the names. Try searching the tag Bucky x insecure reader or plus size reader. That’s how I search them :).

I really am sorry for the wait. I’m just nervous about this part bc in my head it’s the BEST part of the series, the part that really inspired this whole fic with one moment, and I’m afraid it’s not coming off so well when I write it out. ☹️

Country: Croatia

Hi,my name is Marta.
I’m looking for a pen pal mostly out of boredom,and also because I like meeting new people on the internet and hearing stories.
I go to an art highschool,and my favourite subjects are Art History, History and English. One day I’d like to study English in college, but I’m not too sure about that because my interests change every five minutes. What I’m pretty sure of is that I see myself as a teacher.

I’m fluent in Croatian and have been learning English since I was 4 years old. I love art,painting,writing etc. Journaling is my biggest passion, it’s really exciting for me to see time pass on paper and to know everything passes,good and bad. I’m somewhat introverted and have my ‘awkward moments’ when I like to withdraw, but other than that I love people and the world around me.

Preferences: 17-25. I’d like to communicate via email :)

ANNOUNCEMENT

Sorry, guys, it’s not good news.

I AM DISCONTINUING CHERCHEZ.

It may be temporary, it may not be, kinda depends on my mood. Here is why:

I am not getting enough notes on it. Yes, I know I sound like a needy little shit, and believe me, I’m half annoyed at myself as I write this, but it is what it is. I only got about 60 notes on the first part, and they keep going down.

I put a lot of work into Cherchez la Femme. I wrote it by hand, edited it by hand, and am typing it up. It’s been months of work, and I didn’t do that work for such a small amount of notes.

I’ve thought about giving it more time (there’s only a few parts out), but judging by the reaction that my last multi-part fic got–in terms of note amount, not the actual reaction, because that was GREAT–I don’t think much is going to be different. I don’t have the energy to hope and hope and hope and constantly be disappointed.

I’m not one of the bigger blogs on here, and I probably won’t be, I know that. But as insecure as I can be about it, I know there’s one thing in my life that I have yet to fuck up: My writing. I’ve been doing it for 20 years (I started when I was six), and it’s been driving me forward since the day I put pen to paper. And I’m going to be egotistical for a second–I’m good, I know it, and goddammit, I wouldn’t have wasted two college degrees on it otherwise.

I didn’t get much out of those college degrees. I’m unemployed, broke, and scared. I’ve grappled with feeling useless and miserable for years. It’s not pretty. I have very few talents that aren’t related to professions that don’t get you a lot of money. It’s a pain in the ass. Writing (for myself and for others) is pretty much all I’ve got.

A well-intentioned comment (along the lines of “if you practice, you’ll get better”) alerted me to the fact that no one is reading my writing. Allow me one more egotistical comment: If it was being read, they would know that it’s good. That being said, I am discontinuing Cherchez because… writing is meant to be read.

I MAY continue putting it up on Ao3. It’s not gotten many hits, comments, or kudos there either, but I’m much less invested. For the few of you that are reading it, you can also give me your email and you will (eventually) get a giant Word document.

With all that out of the way, I would like to thank @thecrownedrose for her beautiful header(s), which I will keep for all eternity. I would like to thank everyone else for their comments, reblogs, and likes (I’m doing this on my phone, my list is on my computer). @persephone-is-here-omg and @captainamerotica, your life expectancies have lengthened considerably!

I hope you all who commented, reblogged, and liked Cherchez know how much it meant to me. I squealed every time I saw a notification, and I love the interaction with each and every single one of you.

I think it’s just time to stop trying for a while.

Thank you again.

lmao i LOVE antis.


These dumb motherfuckers have the audacity to actually come and say for me to mock and anti saying shiro literally has “scrambled egg brains” is such a bad thing! but yall, yall got friends out here. your best anti fellas telling shaladins to go fucking choke and die. hoping these niggas get their flesh burned etc. also your klantis out here with the blackmails and the stalking. i mean allura-of-altea can’t lie about that one after telling a fellow anti in the group chat to “stalk a blog” (see @huntypastellance for that screenshot because my files are locked atm)


yall wanna start shit so bad, yall really that lame? honey, i have school and i know damn well after seeing yall in the discords POSTING ALL DAY i can make a good guess that many of yall don’t have jobs! nor any good hobbies and don’t bring up art, bitch i draw too and i still have to work and go to school. yall niggas write? shouldn’t even ask that question after yall can magically make college essay grade papers filled with bullshit but cry “pedo” after someone calls you out on your many mistakes.


you guys are petty! because you know im very satirical and a very huge asshole but i would never, ever degrade shiro as much as you all do. i mean seriously! i saw an anti literally want some college student to be 80 years old just so no one can ship him with anyone. now thats hilarious


but why are yall vague-posting about me hm? after im so damn evil and yall blocked me on all accounts possible?


you guys may try to fuck with me but literally all you can do is look even more disgusting for us. so thank you!


moral of this story?



The Time’s Up

Me at @kaxpha :*Shoves small drabble into your face* I LOVE YOU AND YOUR ART AND YOUR OC AND YOU ARE AMAZING AND YOU KEEP INSPIRING ME WTF DUDE.

On the side note: Hi! I wrote this for my amazing, amazing (I’m literally crying right now, she’sjust so good, I die) mutual Kax and, dude, I really hope you like it, I know my writing has been wonky but…yah! 

L ON G POS T.

Content / Warning: Based on the newest Animatic on Kax’s blog of her OC Forrest. Suicide mention. Emotional hurt and Uh…Demons bullying the pure son. 

Disclaimer: I don’t own Forrest. 


Forrest read the words.

None of it makes sense.

He tries again, eyes narrowed in concentration as they move smoothly through the lines.

His vision turns blurry by the fifth sentence.

He groans irritated and drops the paper back to the table, letting it become just another thin useless paper of the pile.

His eyes itch and he looks up at the ceiling in hopes to keep the traitor tears inside.

“I’m fine. It’s fine.” Forrest mumbles, glaring and scowling at the ceiling fan, “I got it, I got it.”

His hand shakes as he tries to pickup another paper from the messy table and shouts angrily when he realizes that it’s not even translated yet, the original dead language it was written in still present and Forrest doesn’t have the time to translate.

He doesn’t have the time.

The clock keeps ticking, his ears keep ringing and the memory of a eerie dark voice keeps echoing inside his head.

There’s not enough time.

“Fuck!” Forrest shouts in frustration, slamming the paper against the hard surface of the table before he turns around and shut his eyes, “Fuck, fuck, fuck!”

He whines softly as he feel the tears fall but he’s too tired to wipe them away. He lets out a shuddering breath, clutching his shirt in a tight grip.

“I can’t do this.” He whispers quietly, stuffing in a sob that threatened to escape, “Fuck this shit, fuck. I can’t.”

“Aw, would you look at that? The small human is in distress.”

Forrest eyes snap open, easily recognizing the dark smooth voice that coos behind him.

“No.” He whispers, his mind too tired to even pretend to be unfazed by its presence, “Please, no.”

“So, Little Forrest doesn’t know how to do his job, huh?” They say, a sharp wicked grin spreading through their dark shadowy face, “Looks like the only thing he’s good for is to whine, whine, whine.”

Forrest turns, eyes wide open in shock as he stares at the tall shadow floating in the middle of the room.

He notices the way they come closer to him and he unconsciously take a step back.

It’s almost like a game, because the shadow’s grin just grows, getting closer to Forrest by the second and they hum satisfied once Forrest’s back hit the wall, effectively trapping him.

“That’s all you seem to do.” They whispers, grin falling and a bored expression taking over their features, “Whine, whine, whine.”

They slap their hand abruptly on the wall, an inch away from Forrest’s face and smirk pleased when he notices the quick flinch the small human does.

“You don’t deserve to live.” They whisper, head raise up high and looking down at Forrest with disgust.

Forrest shivers when their cold phantom hand grabs him by the chin.

Darkness is filling up the room. His eyes follow as it slowly covers every inch of his motel room and then everything turns quiet and cold.

“You are no use to us.” They say nonchalantly, shrugging their shoulders before smiling happily. “Why not kill yourself, then?”

They laugh gleefully as they easily catch Forrest’s fist with a single hand.

“I’m going to give you something to whine for.” They say, smile turning predatory as they drop Forrest to the floor and slams their foot down.

Forrest’s breath hitches as a small red portal opens below him and he doesn’t have enough time to react before he’s falling.

His screams are stuck in his throat, he can feel the way the wind smacks him in the face and then he’s choking with sobs when a cold hand grabs him by the wrist.

His mouth opens but nothing comes out, his entire form shaking as he stares at the billions of faceless mouths below him, grinning and cooing at him with desire.

His breathing turns erratic as different voices fill his ears and he can’t do nothing to stop them.

You’re pathetic.

Tears fall and it only seem to fuel the demons’ satisfaction.

You’re useless.

They are getting closer, they seem to start climbing and there’s no where he can run.

You’re a disgrace.

“No, no, no, no, please.” He whispers horrified, squirming and trying to climb up, his hand tugging and scratching the only thing that supports him from falling, “Get away, get away.”

Then the cold hand lifts him up and he’s staring face to face with the demon.

“Tsk, Forrest, Forrest, Forrest.” They coo, shaking their head in mock disappointment, “Do I have to remind you what will happen if you don’t fulfill your part of the deal?”

“I’m trying!” Forrest snaps angrily, “Just - Just leave me alone! I’m fucking trying!”

The demon scowls at him before rolling his eyes boredly.

“No, you’re whining.” They deadpan before letting them go.

Forrest doesn’t have time to scream before he’s crashing on the ground.

He grunts in pain, body shaking with sobs as he tries to stand up slowly, tired and frustrated tears covering his face.

“Stop, please.” He whimpers, his lower lip wobbling with emotion before his head snaps and looks behind him.

The faceless shadows surround him.

“Whine, whine, whine.” They chant, “Why don’t you kill yourself?”

The eerie voice from the demon still echoes inside him, it keeps pushing and stabbing. Their words turn malicious and mocking.

They don’t stop.

“Go on.” They cheer, “Go and keep moaning and bitching. It’s the only thing you are good at, right?” They mock, their laughter impregnating in Forrest’s mind, “Whine, whine, whine.”

“Stop.” Forrest, whispers, “Stop, please, I’m -I -I can’t but I’m -Please.”

“You don’t deserve to live.” They snap angrily, and Forrest flinch, gasping as they almost collide with a faceless shadow, “Die, die, die.”

“No, no, no.” Forrest sobs out, his hands covering his ears but it’s not enough to block out the voices around him, “No, no.”

His eyes scan everywhere around him, looking for the exit as his Father had always mention during his teachings.

“Look for the narrowed light crack of the realm.” His Father’s voice says in his mind, “It’s nearer than you believe.”

And it is.

Forrest doesn’t hesitate to move as his eyes fall on the small lighted crack a few feet from him.

He runs.

He pushes and dodges, making his way in desperation towards the light.

He doesn’t dare to look back, he can feel the demon’s presence near him, their hands hovering dangerously above him, ready to catch him and pull him back.

The light fades from his vision and suddenly his raised hand is pressed against a firm chest, the strong and steady heartbeat echoing inside of it making it’s way to his ears and Forrest follows its lead to control his own erratic one.

“Hey, are you okay?”

Forrest doesn’t have the energy to answer. He’s only able to sob at the concern tone in the stranger’s voice before he falls to the ground and a pair of lean arms wraps him into a warm hug.

The demon’s warning keeps echoing inside his mind.

“The time’s up.”

Non-paper-goods stuff is the current priority as Evil Supply Co. has pushed past the boundaries of my original “Huh, will this work?” business model.

Following that, the next priority is going to be “getting the blog up and various other writing/art things up”

And then probably a cycle through it all again (evil paper goods, villainous tomfoolery, content freely available).
