EssieWhen she puts the headphones on, her body turns into a cathedral.
The music resonates in her chest and echoes in the dome of her skull, flushing under her skin and running through her bones. She breathes it into her lungs and it sings in her blood like oxygen. The music flows into her empty spaces, fills her out and makes her feel whole.
Only then is she human. Only then does she feel like herself.
---
Essie woke up to the smell of pancakes. Her mother was making breakfast downstairs.
“Morning,” she said cheerily in the grey light.
“Morning.” Essie started to dig into her pancakes, but stopped short. Her mother had forgotten to put sugar in them, and they tasted like flour. When asked how they were, Essie smiled and said they were excellent.
Her mother dropped her off at school with a kiss on the cheek; Essie could feel her anxious eyes as she walked up the steps. She went to Biology, where a girl named Hannah chatted about movies and waited patiently as Essie s

The Final TaskIt was cold and snowy. Not particularly any colder or snowier than any other spot on the mountain had been, yet as a girl without a name stood at the very peak of it, she had a feeling she should mention it once more.
The wind was screeching in her ears and for a moment, it was covering the voices that had always haunted the girl without a name. It had been the voices that had led her to this place, they had screamed at her to climb until her feet were numb and her hands covered up in scratches. They had commanded her to stand up once she had fallen. She had.
And she had climbed and climbed, until she had reached the final peak.
Now, the girl without a name stood there and stared in awe at the scenery that was presented to her. She was sure that no other being had ever been here, had ever seen the world from the top like she did, now.
And she liked it, liked it more than she thought she would ever like a view that the world could present to her. The world she had known before she had b

Losing FortunaMost people have no idea what a fortune looks like. Most people say it's a collection of illustrations on cards or a gigantic manor filled with nothing but the memories of the grandest adventures. Either that or the cliched mountain of gold. More ironically, however, is the fact that not many people know how much that same fortune is worth. Oh, a mountain of gold will certainly get one a seaside castle, two if properly negotiated, but so rarely is a fortune is gained by a simple task or exchange, and even more elusive is a fair trade for such a gain.
If the sucker that had given Notch the map and buckskin hadn't calculated his losses by now, he was as far from fortune as a kerosene leak in a coal mine.
'I should've just buried that pick in the old geezer's skull! Could've given the poor guy a break and myself a good laugh!' Notch considered.
His makeshift kayak teetered feverishly between the stone ramparts of the underground and the moat of darkness below as its captain eased his way

StrengthMy grandfather was the strongest man I ever met. If you’ve ever seen someone on TV perform some superhuman feat of strength and thought that it wasn’t real, you’ve never met my grandfather. I have seen him rip a telephone book in half. He reached his full height of 6”4’ at the age of fourteen, and by the age of fifteen he had left school to work in the metal works. No one thought twice about it, because he was more than capable of the work and looked older than he was.
I am not strong. My joints frequently hurt, although I do not think I can convey to you how much of an understatement the word ‘hurt’ is in this situation. Most people didn’t understand why I didn’t run as long or as fast as the other children, or take delight in the frequent football scrimmages that almost all the boys I knew took such delight in. when I told them “I can’t, my legs ache,” they just told me to be strong.
My grandfather didn’t.
Advice From AfarTo Whomsoever Shall Find This Letter,
By now you would be aware that you are dead.  I trust that you have found the news as liberating as I.  For me, the best day of my life was the day I died.  I was destined to pay the ultimate price for taking for food a magnificent Purple Heron as it nested with unhatched young.  It was a time of great desperation and the painful death from intestinal parasite was a slow justice well served by the bird. But enough about me; for now.
If you are indeed new to this place, it is my fond wish to impart to you my experience thus far in hopes that it is of some benefit.  If to the contrary and you know all you need to, I humbly ask that you leave this letter as and where you found it for the next wayward soul.
To my findings then.  Firstly, time as you knew it should be ignored as there is no night or day and little else to measure it by.  There is no sun and no moon as far as I can discern, just this soft illumination o
The Madness of Angels
Sometimes at night I still dream of the glass garden which I had planted, molten pillars of flame that were cool to the touch- the gates of heaven which I had fashioned in her likeness. It wasn’t what one might call Eden though; far from it. The only commonality that this place and the mythological one shared were perhaps in its finer details: being lost, perhaps the one that sticks out like a sore thumb.
I discovered some years ago when I had slipped out of my teenage arrogance that in fact, I was more sentimental a being than perhaps I would have liked to admit- definitely more so than I imagine I give a hint at. Logic had been my weapon against the confusing algorithms that ruled the mechanics of society- the smoke that used to stink up the sandwich shop near my school, the parties which I never bothered to go, the gossip about so and so person whom I had never found attractive. When I turned sixteen, I decided that I had been hanging around the wrong crowd after I had
Old GeorgeThe battle had been a difficult one for the old captain and was not yet over. The arthritis squeaked in his bones as he released another clip from his gun. He reloaded it so fast that the new clip slid easily in the well oiled chamber, long before the old clip hit the concrete floor. After releasing a few rounds from his weapon he quickly rolled over the floor into a new cover place from where he would have a better angle at the last few survivors.
It was surprising how those rebels ever got by, he thought as he fired a few rounds without even looking. ‘Sure they have enough weapons and manpower, but absolutely no training or common sense.’ He finished this particular train of thought as he started a quick calculation.
Not even considering he was the famous old George, who led the Sinraints single handedly to victory in the battle of Hillsmoke. He who had never suffered a single injury or defeat in combat. The rebels should have known that they did not have any hope once a
The Great Nut JobFrank, the flying squirrel, was not having a very good morning.
It was raining, his mating dance practice was not coming along nearly as well as he hoped, and his nut cache had been stolen. To top things off, his buddy, Fred, was being less than sympathetic.
“Dude,” said Fred. “You need to stop trying so hard. Just grab yourself a couple of pine nuts, find a lady friend for the evening, and worry about everything tomorrow. Works for me.”
“I don't have any lady friends,” said Frank morosely.
Fred shrugged. “You can have one of mine.”
“Some of us actually like to solve our own problems.”
“And I can never figure out why when it's just so much easier to ignore them. Oh well, sounds like you need a wish granter.”
“A what?”
“A wish granter. Like the one on Mount Kamoogie.”
Frank paused and washed his ears for a moment as he contemplated this. Then, “There's no such thing.”
“Sure

Hello! I am Medi, and my partner is Strong. We are looking to join contests, participate in trades (Sorry, we only provide literary deviations!), receive prompts, or anything else that will challenge us.
