COMEDY/RELATABLE:
My friend really doesn't know how to whisper. It's a life threatening condition- for me.
" *whispering* he's kinda cute..."
" OMY GOD YOU THINK HE'S CUTE???"
*inhales sharply and is ready to disappear*

FICTION/FANTASY:
She continued running, breathless. She had to get off this planet, off to her home. Power surged as she lifted off the platform, and General Mixon's threats seeming to reverberate through the galaxy. 



HISTORICAL FICTION/ NONFICTION:
Poland, 1941

BAM.
The shot rang out, and you whip around. Jacob sat there, the inevitable crimson staining green camouflage.
"Like Christmas." He breathed, and the tears you swore wouldn't trickle began to pour. 
"Teach them a lesson, soldier. So you and the boys can be back by Christmas."
The general's last breath was even more piercing than the gun shot.

    oh wow that last one. that hit me hard for some reason. I always love writing death scenes (i sound like a psycho when i say that haha) but pulling emotions through writing is the best feeling.

    It was sweet of you to do this! A little something for everyone. I loved the comedy section; it reminds me of my best friend and I talking about anything! :)

    ahahaha you have such wit about you XD
    I love how some of these are almost bordering on satire. Very clever piece! (also that last drabble about the nonfiction is absolutely superb :D)

    Oh, you might want to add "TW in Message Board" or something similar to the title, because a lot of people read that last, not first. :)

    I almost did a spit take reading the first part XD. That's what I get for taking a sip from my water bottle while reading something labeled Comedy. And the rest of the piece is as good or even better! Blood on a soldier's uniform as compared to Christmas?? Just break my heart!
