So, she took it home, and left it on her desk, next to the mug full of pens to the right of her monitor. Eventually, she’d wash it out, maybe discard the stopper, or leave it in the junk drawer and turn the bottle into a bud vase. She’d always liked using glasses and jars and old candle holders instead of actual vases. (0 likes)

“Are you casting me as Hades then?” Helen asked, drawing up her own mount beside her wife’s. “Not sure that’s flattering.” “But don’t you feel like that’s who we are?” Margo challenged. “Look at this city. The buildings are burned out husks. Nature is weaving itself back over the framework, and what are we doing? Picking over the carcasses of what’s left behind.” (0 likes)

Their community was an experiment in peaceful coexistence. It helped that their town was situated in a northern latitude, where that in-between time was longer than it was elsewhere. It helped that they were a coastal village, rather than a big city. Everyone knew each other. That mattered. (0 likes)


Jasper: posted on Oct 28, 3:52 am by MissMeliss (MissMeliss - Bathtub Mermaid) - 30 entries
Still, it would be nice if, once in a while, one of his people would recognize his vigilance and tell him he was a good boy for protecting the house or thank him from driving The Thing away every night. Just one pat on the head, or maybe and extra dog biscuit would make all the difference. Instead, Jasper has to hear them tell him to Stop Barking, and Be Quiet, and Go Lay Down, when his job has been done again and he returns to the living room to let them know. (0 likes)

In that moment, the stranger in his vintage clothes and the hat that obscures his eyes has become the object of her desire. He doesn’t speak, but extends a hand to assist her as she releases her squat and stands straight. “Thank you,” she says. “Again, I’m sorry.” He touches his hand to the brim of his hat and disappears into the shadowed twilight of the university district.

Or maybe they’re not souls at all. Doesn’t matter. The name you give them isn’t important. That you recognize that there’s a spark of something – a spark of some THING – suspended in the wire and the wood, or curled up inside the brass of the bell, or hiding tucked up against the reed – that’s what matters.

He tossed aside a book that was dedicated to plant-based foods: Ivies for Immortality. Being immortal sounded cool, until you realized that it meant leaving your friends and your family all alone and getting old and broken but never actually dying. Pheh. They could keep their immortality, especially if it meant a diet based on ivy. (0 likes)

The power is flickering, so she turns on the electric kettle then lights the candelabra on the dining room table. Oranges are always in the fruit bowl on the counter, well, those kid-friendly halo things, anyway, so she piles a few in a blue ceramic bowl and places it on the table with a paper plate. (0 likes)

The last section of Stephen’s walk brought him through the Chalk Alleys. These were narrow streets between great brick buildings, their external walls covered in layer upon layer of chalk drawings. He enjoyed the work of the different artists, and while he could never decipher the tags that represented their creators’ names, he recognized each distinct style. (0 likes)


The Year My Halloween Mask Tried To Kil Me: posted on Oct 12, 2:25 pm by animos (My Enduring Bones) - 31 entries
Costumes are more elaborate now- and I’m pretty sure they’re non-flammable and the masks won’t kill you by strangulation but I have to wonder if that sense of danger coming from our killer costumes and parents who told us that our candy could have been poisoned so they were going to take it and throw it away gave an extra thrill to the night that kids just don’t get anymore.

She pulled her kit from the bottom drawer of her dresser, and threaded the needle with clean, white, thread. She'd filled each spool herself, first gathering the fluffy white fiber from the thread-plants, then cleaning it, carding it, stretching and spinning it until it was fine enough to be sewn into living skin.

“I was going through my father’s things after he died, an I found a picture of him with a camel, and a book about the Texas Camel Corps.” “Is that a real thing?” Morris asked. “Oh, very real. In the early twentieth century a rancher in Texas who’d been the camel caretaker at a zoo decided that camels would be fantastic herd animals.” “O’Reilly, don’t you dare tell me they raised camels for food?” (0 likes)

I roll my eyes at him, but I sit up in the bed and twist so I can reach the bottle of blue pills on the shelf of the headboard. They’re uncoated. They’re bitter. I hate the taste, the texture, the size. But I shake two of them into the palm of my hand and reach for the glass of lemon-water on my nightstand. It has to be lemon water. Plain water makes me puke.

Atropos, the immutable one, went next. She had been in charge of clipping the threads to end lives, and it had gone to her head and bruised her heart beyond repair. Too many children, she said, haven't been allotted adulthood. Too many rapists and murderers were given long lives. She'd cut her own thread, in the end. Lachesis never even knew where she found the scissors. (1 like)

And she remembered the calliope playing and the carousel spinning. It hadn’t been an ordinary carousel. No painted ponies and prancing unicorns. No pretty swan boats for those who weren’t interested in catching the brass ring. That carousel had been populated by grotesques. Leering goblin faces, twisted features of nightmare horses.
