VoidThere's a word for what I'm feelingVoid by unusedEmotion
I could be poetic
I could be romantic
I could be dramatic
But I won't
Because this sort of feeling doesn't deserve fancy words
It deserves hard, merciless thoughts
Feelings, opinions, emotions that would make you scream
I look around and I see blurs and blurs
Colors swirling about
I hear noises that eventually dim to a low background hum
Everything is unfocused
The exit sign
I stare at it
I feel nothing
I just look at it
While everything around me breathes with life
Bolder and bolder it taunts me
Escape it says, escape
But I can't bring myself to move my feet
I can't bring myself to run away
I'm not ready to face the world
I'm not strong enough to leave it
There's a word for what I'm feeling
Empty Hunting - PrologueEmpty Hunting - Prologue by SnugglyZombie
Tight chains gripped Zaxel by the wrists. This was not just for the surrounding observers' safety, but for his own, too. If he made any slight attempt at escaping, a sword would pierce his chest in seconds. If the stabbing failed, his body would be engulfed in flames just by a flick of the wrist from their lord, Adrial.
Zaxel stared at the floor calmly. As much as he wanted to fight and kill Adrial himself, he knew worse consequences would be waiting for him at the other end.
Adrial cleared his throat. Eyes looked up at him in anticipation.
"Zaxel, due to your obsession with power, you have murdered innocent people, masters, and even your own brothers. Your malicious and violent actions have led me to my final decision...exile and prohibition of powers."
The chains shuffled as the guards started to direct Zaxel away from the throne.
"However," Adrial said. "I have a counter option for you."
Zaxel turned and faced him. He bowed and then spoke. "What would that be, my lord?

Primal Tears (partial script) - PG13 EditionPrimal Tears (partial script) - PG13 Edition by CedarWoods
NOTE: This is very long so you may want to copy it.
NOTE 2: Because of pasting problems, what you see here, is not the proper format for a screenplay. I hope you'll enjoy it despite of that. If you like this email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll send you a partial version of the extended cut, or the Uncut version (only if you're over 18).
The first thing that we see, is a series of paintings and photographs going by in a slide-show as ominous music plays.
The photos and paintings all seem to have a patriarchal feeling to them, as they all depict men doing things that mostly only men do.
Killing people in the name of God, clear-cutting forests, bombing the shit out of innocent civilians, and beating and killing women just because they're women.
As the slide-show goes on it becomes darker and more gruesome.
Needless to say the first images aren't pleasant.

Whoever You AreDear Stranger,Whoever You Are by eloquensartifex
You are loved.
I know that at times it can be hard to understand or accept that fact, but it is true. That laugh you feel is too loud is all that gets someone through the day. That extensive rock collection you have spent years developing and labeling will make someone squeal with delight. I'm not even just talking about romantic love. I'm talking about not being invisible. I'm talking about being worth a damn even though you are only one of billions. The overwhelming numbers that crush you under the weight of your seeming insignificance distract you from complex and sometimes entirely missed interactions and connections in your life. If you feel you are alone, if you feel like you have done nothing with your life, I assure you that you're wrong. You have touched someone, somewhere. You have influenced countless lives. When you apologized to a stranger on the street when you bumped into him, you reminded him that there is still such a thing as courtesy in this world. Yo
AurumA false charade of dancing masks,Aurum by crazy4surf
An intricate ballet,
Performed in a most convincing fashion.
Brilliant gold flashes in the peripheral,
Momentary image of an elegance surreal.
Dashing, he follows.
Through majestic ballroom crowded,
Dancers ignore his haste,
Squirms through, a singular purpose.
Grand corridor ordained with finest silver,
He see's her face,
Suppresses a shiver.
Brilliance of gold covers face and hands,
Her hair too, even strands.
With trepid step he approaches this anomaly.
Smiling sadly she says,
"please hold me"
A caution flashes, quickly suppressed.
Reaching with trembling hands,
Her eyes are there, but unreal they seem.
Rigid with an eery still she stands.
Again, a smile brilliant,
"please hold me"
She pulled on the corded hook in his heart.
In her embrace he lives on into eternity,
Before the never-ending embrace,
He saw the other golden couples furnishing the halls.

English Tutoring for Reading and Writing
I know if I want a job, I should set this up in my area. I will be trying to, but I don't think it'll hurt to help tutor others online who have trouble with English or think their child needs additional help. During my service, we can talk via Skype, Google docs, e-mail, or any other platform. I might accept calls as well.
Note me if you're interested. Because it is only for English writing/reading and I am in need of money, my rate should be affordable (and negotiable). However, I wouldn't mind working together on beginner (or intermediate?) Spanish lessons/homework also, since I've had 4 years of classes in it and have lost my touch with it.
My schedule is very, very flexible for the meantime. I am in PST time zone wise. Until I get a

OMG it's DONE
What's done?! IT'S DONE. I have spent days and days and days collecting a list of all the lit groups I could find (1901 groups to be exact!), then I went through each one and moved all the groups that had no discernible activity in the past 12 months to the Inactive Groups list (see links above).

Let me explain the hierarchy of this group:
- I, Fackio-Zally, am the God of the group. :3 - can do whatever the hell she wants
- Co-founders are Demi-gods: can do almost whatever the hell they want & the stuff below
- Contributors are Patricians: should seek to invite members and affiliates, provide feedback and critique submitted works as needed or requested (if they so wish), organize & sort group folders, ensure rules are followed, suggest contests or prompts, make blogs about fiction-related stuff, & stand in for the God and Demi-gods.
- Members are Plebeians: cannot do whatever they want, but can sure have fun!
All in Good Humor though. :3
