Message from Writer

Hello!
I go by Marie on the internet, and...hm. I'm sixteen years old, but I've spent the last three years of my life roleplaying obsessively, and I think it shows because my characters' speech patterns leak into the narration half the time. I'm bad at leaving reviews, but I want to at least get some of my work out there in case something happens to me, so I'm hanging out around here.

Following Chance

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2019

    There was something uniquely personal about close up magic, the magic that feigned intimacy by pulling off ploys right under the audience’s nose - perhaps literally, in certain cases.  Done right, it could awe a crowd just as much as any flashy performance could, and innate flair was part of the craft. These all made it exceptionally rewarding, but for Leopold, the best thing about it was the lack of complicated props.  All he’d need today was some dice,...

Sapphire's Halo

    “Hey, hey!  Did you hear?  Did ya?” Yoichi called, slipping on socked feet into the living room to see--Yes, exactly who he was looking for:  His Mom and Dad, both huddled around the gadgeted, jacked-up recliner (thanks Dad) that was smoking suspiciously.
    “Hear what, kid?”  Momiji asked, leaning away from whatever was up with the chair. (She was also known as Mom, but Yoichi called her Momiji if he could get away with it.)

The Butterfly Effect

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

    When I was a child, I was always told that my actions always had further-reaching effects than I could ever realize.  This concept is a common one--just look at the very idea of a “Butterfly Effect,” where something as small as a butterfly flapping its wings can cause hurricanes across the world.  You find it in media and aphorisms, in the nuances in how people treat you. You find them in the consequences of your actions.

    And that is,...

The Abuser

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

Bystander

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

It was a Spring day.  A man stood at a crosswalk.
A pair of students hurried down the street.  One of them tripped and fell, but he only watched.
It was Summer.  The man was still there.
An outgoing, bombastic girl attempted to converse with him.  He froze before he could say two words.
Then came Fall.
Children flooded the streets, asking for candy.  He didn’t have any. By the time he went to buy some, they were all gone. ...
