You know that moment when you realize you’re in over your head?
“I am steeped in blood so far, that returning would be as tedious as going ahead.”

I missed this place. I missed posting. I can’t be the user that I was before, but I’m going to post.

Stories

  1. Becoming Sophia (73)

    “Soon, you’ll be back with your family. I expect you’ll see them at the ball. They must be so worried about you.” A chill crept up my spine as she spoke. “What?” I asked, completely surprised that she would bring it ...

  2. Becoming Sophia (72)

    The necklace Georgette held in her hands was more extravagant than anything I had ever worn. It was comprised of small diamonds laced into a sterling silver setting that appeared as flowered vines. She turned me around and settled the necklace perfectl...

  3. Becoming Sophia (71)

    Georgette rimmed my eyes with dark kohl and rubbed some rouge on my lips and cheeks. She piled my hair on top of my head, leaving little waves hanging out near the back. I could never have done it myself and I told her this, but she only laughed. ̶...

  4. Becoming Sophia (70)

    “I can’t go to the ball! I’m hardly of age!” “You’re fifteen, are you not?” “Well yes… but what would I wear?” Georgette grinned ruefully and told me to wait just a minute. She left for a few ...

  5. Becoming Sophia (69)

    That night Georgette did not help in the kitchen as usual, leaving it instead to the servants. She spent the entire afternoon pampering me. I wasn’t sure how to feel having someone wait on me after waiting on my stepsisters for so many years, but...

  6. Becoming Sophia (68)

    “Oh, Marina, don’t be coy. I know those eyes. Those are the eyes Jordan used to give me.” “Used to?” I raised my eyebrow at her. “Don’t change the subject.” “What subject?" “Marina, I know what is going on between you two. I’...

  7. Becoming Sophia (67)

    We spent my birthday in the marketplace. Georgette bought me silly things; hair combs and perfume. At length, while we browsed I saw a shoemaker and went into his shop. I found the most beautiful pair of silver shoes; they were perfect! I stared longin...

  8. Becoming Sophia (66)

    “I couldn’t let Margarete keep it. It was the last thing I had of her,” I said softly. Georgette didn’t say anything, but she squeezed my knee and smiled. “I don’t know why I kept it, honestly. I could never wear something so ornate.” I g...

  9. Becoming Sophia (65)

    I didn’t mean to be impolite, but surely if Georgette had known me before, I would remember her. “Of course you don’t, you were far too young. Once your father fell ill, bless him, the parties dwindled to none. We could only come every other year...

  10. Becoming Sophia (64)

    I made to draw the towel around me to cover myself, but it was all twisted up from how it had been in my hair. It felt like an eternity of embarrassment before I finally got my chest completely covered. My face burned crimson. “Excuse me,” I breath...

  11. Becoming Sophia (63)

    I woke myself early the next morning to wash my hair. It had so much powder in it, my arms got tired mid-wash. One of the serving girls offered to help me, but I was used to doing it myself. I had lowered the neck of my sleeping gown off my shoulders t...

  12. TwoHundredThirtyTwo (challenge)

    “My mother is a fish.” (60 character minimum not yet met) (60 character minimum not yet met)

  13. Baby Shoes

    The building is huge and noisy, I keep my eyes away from those of the people standing next to their commission and the smell of Cinnabon lingers in the air around us. I smile at Em and give her had a squeeze. “We have to get a present for Dawn, h...

  14. Thieves (2)

    I wasn’t awake, otherwise I would have used my milk-dud powered little sister to scare them away, hence allowing me to keep the precious bunny slippers. As it is, they managed to steal them. I’ve sent them threatening messages to bring them...

  15. Thieves (ficly challenge)

    Once upon a thyme leaf, in a pizza place 3 blocks from a house that isn’t mine, a man named Luigi made a pizza. Aliens lost control of their flux capacitor because they were out of bologna. They crash-landed in a field of pineapples. Gathering th...

  16. 42, She Is (42 challenge)

    I run up to the man with the squinted eyes and the yellow sign. Better than Google—here’s Asian. “QUICK!” I cry. “WHAT IS THE QUESTION TO LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING?” “Why isn’t it 7?” “...

  17. Cain and Abel [incest challenge] (Mature)

  18. Becoming Sophia (62)

    “So, Marina, how’s our older brother? Do we have something to be proud of finally?” I knew they were teasing him, but it was becoming quite annoying! Besides helping the farmhands every day in the morning and learning the business of ...

  19. Becoming Sophia (61)

    Jared and Timothy were engaged in a fierce staring match, neither one willing to back down. Jared was glaring daggers at his brother who managed only to smirk. “You will not tell anyone of this,” Jared commanded in a low voice that would ha...

  20. Becoming Sophia (60)

    “Long enough,” Tim tried cryptically, but his brother ruined it by saying, “Since you started kissing her!” I flushed bright red in embarrassment. “I never knew you to be so vocal, Jared!” Michael teased, running his...

  21. Becoming Sophia (59)

    At first I didn’t notice they were there. I hadn’t heard the door open and, from the feel of it, neither had Jared. Jared and I actually only stopped kissing because we needed air in our lungs. My eyes remained closed as our panting breaths...

  22. Daddy's Little Girl (incest challenge) (Mature)

  23. Becoming Sophia (58)

    I inhaled deeply, his musk ensnaring my senses so that my eyelids fluttered closed. Our bodies were pressed together hotly and, even under the pressure from my corsets, I felt my nipples harden with arousal. “Damn it to hell,” I heard Jared...

  24. Becoming Sophia (57)

    My words were dangerous and skated on impropriety, but in the face of temptation I was willing to throw such strict codes of behaviour out the window. Jared tried to mask his emotions, but I saw the corner of his mouth turn up ever so slightly in respo...

  25. Becoming Sophia (56)

    “Maybe what?” I prompted quietly when he didn’t continue. He looked into my eyes, as if seeing me truly for the first time before a foreign sadness overcame his expression. “Maybe you would want to…stay,” He finished...

  26. Becoming Sophia (55)

    His arms, outstretched in a frantic gesture to emphasize words I was hardly listening to by then, I knew could hit me harder than Adelind or Cristyne ever could have…but I knew he wouldn’t. I had the strange feeling that he should be embrac...

  27. Becoming Sophia (54)

    I stood there, mouth agape like a stunned fish, not sure what to say. “What?” How could Jared think I had my eye set for the Prince? “Oh come now, Marina!” Jared was raising his voice a little now and, though I would never say i...

  28. Such Great Heights (cartoon challenge)

    The view down from the top of the Home is beautiful. From up here I can see Bloo following Mac around…everyone likes Bloo. But who likes me? Who imagined me? Why don’t they even want to spend time with what they made? They can’t stand...

  29. Becoming Sophia (53)

    My voice must have been loud enough for someone nearby to hear because when I turned away from the fire as my song ended, Jared was standing in the doorway. I jumped, startled out of my reverie at the sight of him. “You have a beautiful voice, Ma...

  30. Becoming Sophia (52)

    My voice filled the room with an old French melody I’d learned from Jacqueline. It danced along the ceilings, decorating the room with longing as only a favorite sad song can do. I still remember the words… O, ma très chère, ô mon ami, p...
