The Road Not TakenHe'll move onto a more advanced school (he has no friends; there's no reason to stay) and make Franz's mistake ("An AI seemed like a good idea at the time!")
She'll move back to Japan (new jobs, new locations) and study martial arts.
He'll lose his laughter (this breakup hit him hard)
He'll befriend a raven-haired delinquent (they'll be in jail before the end of high school)
She'll sit (neither awake nor asleep), dormant, like the supercomputer (it was never turned on) she resides in.
It'll stand for a year before being torn down.
(It's just an old factory)
Four Chains PrologueRun.
It was the single, frantic thought in the elf's head that blotted out all the others. It was one simple, yet important and maybe even lifesaving command that she was following. She was running, running as fast as she could. Her mind was on autopilot.
Run, jump, and duck.
The thick foliage slowed her pace considerably. She had to follow the commands that her brain produced so she wouldn't end up sprawled on the forest floor or getting slapped by low-hanging branches. She was afraid she wouldn't be able to get up if she tripped and fell.
Run, jump, duck, and pant.
Lightheaded from scrambling through the forest, the elf had to add it to her list of automatic commands—not that it hadn't been there already. Chest heaving, heart pounding, and legs burning from the actions, she tried unsuccessfully to organize her jumbled thoughts. She searched for the reason she was running and found it almost im
Not good enough...
Hate. Destroying the mind.
Self-loathing. Eating away your insides.
Circumlocution (Jerlita week 4)"And the code was scrambled, so I had to "
Aelita tuned out again, staring at Jeremy's brown sweater. She liked the blue better.
"Aelita? Are you getting this?"
She snapped back. "Yeah, sure."
"Are you sure?"
She had to fight back a sigh and nodded. Jeremy continued to talk, and soon Aelita found herself wishing that he would stop. Of course, she didn't mind talking to him or hearing him talk normally, but did they always have to talk about codes and Lyoko? Why not something else for a change?
Then she began to lean forward, thinking of a way to shut him up and get him talking about something else at the same time.
"the algorithm, Iuh, Aelita, what are you doing? Aelita?"
Jeremy tried to lean backwards, but Aelita darted forward and caught him in a kiss. She felt him go rigid as her hands slipped down to his shoulders, half out of instinct and half to make him stay, but something told her that he wouldn't be moving for a long time.
Celadon (Jerlita week 4)Green.
Jeremy swallowed his anger and smiled at Theo, who was talking with Aelita.
That was the color of envy.
He wasn't blind. Did they think he couldn't see their flirtatious looks or winks?
But it wasn't quite accurate, Jeremy thought.
Jeremy clenched his fist, shoving it into his pocket so Aelita couldn't see it. He knew she wasn't hers, but He let out a quick breath through his nose. Aelita had been getting more popular, and it wasn't too surprising for himafter all, why wouldn't she? She was funny, smart, kind, pretty beautiful.
Envy was green like her eyes, but not quite. That green was too pretty. Too good for Theo, at least.
Boys surrounded her more and more. Jeremy would meet her in the library or near the vending machine, only to find another guy or two already hanging around her. Then he convinced himself to outdo the guy in some sort of imaginary competition in his head, but he always ended up shrinking back, making an excuse to leave.
Blushing"What is that?"
"What is what, Aelita?"
"That." The pink haired girl pointed to one of the pink spots on Jeremy's cheeks. "What are those?"
"Oh." Jeremy continued typing, very aware of Aelita brushing against his shoulder. The close contact brought another rush of heat to his face.
"That!" the girl exclaimed as Jeremy became redder. "Why are you doing that? What is it?"
Still Jeremy continued to type, careful to keep his eyes on the screen. "It's called a blush, Aelita."
The girl tilted her head curiously. Now her cheek was pressed against Jeremy's. "I've seen you do that before. Sometimes when I was in Lyoko, you started acting funny and your face changed color. Also, it feels warm now."
Jeremy didn't answer.
"Why did you do it?" Aelita prodded, one arm now slung over Jeremy's shoulder. He tried not to squirm.
"Well," Jeremy began carefully, aware he was in dangerous territory, "people usually blush when they're embarrassed, but someone could also blush if they're near someone they li
Story scraps: Pumpkin Juice
"What is that?" Lizzie asked, poking the orange surface and wiping her finger on her shorts. "It looks yucky." She wrinkled her nose, pushing away the glass.
Her mother, who had been wiping down the counter, walked over. "Lizzie, Don't put your finger in there!" she scolded gently, dumping the glass and pouring a new one. Then she added, "This is pumpkin juice, dear."
"Pumpkin juice?" Lizzie asked in amazement, peering at the glass with wide eyes. "Pumpkins get their own juice?"
Her mother laughed, ruffling the five year-old's hair. "Yes, honey, they do. Why don't you try some?"
Lizzie narrowed her eyes in suspicion, glancing at her mother. "It It won't turn me into a... pumpkin, will it?"
Unable to help herself, the mother laughed again. "No, Liz, it won't turn you into a pumpkin."
Lizzie grabbed the glass and squinted at the orange with one eye.
"Are you sure?"
"I'm positive, honey," her mother said with amusement as she watched her daughter inspect the juice.
Then Lizzie put h
Story scraps: Insanity
Fat drops of rain thudded against the window, sliding down like tears against the glass. He worked feverishly in the near darkness, nimble and talented hands tightening bolts, screws, putting on parts, and more. A flash of lightening filled the window, illuminating his hunched figure and horribly bloodshot eyes.
"I'll show them," he muttered. "I'll show them all. I'll show them that I'm not insane " He let out a laugh that sounded more like a cough and finished tightened a screw.
Thunder boomed and a flash of lightening followed shortly thereafter.
"Bret Thompson, you'd better not be messing around with my lab equipment!"
"Leave me alone, mom!" the man known as Bret yelled back, face twisted into irritation.
"I don't like you spending all that time in the basement!" his mother yelled back. "You've been in there for days, hardly even coming up for nourishment!"
Hissing, the man continued to work.
"This will be my greatest invention yet. And I'm almost done, yes, I'm almost
Lucubrate: Jerlita week"Not again!"
Jeremy slammed his fist down on the desk for the fourth time that evening as the symbol he had come to know and hate flashed on the screen: the dreaded red exclamation mark.
The day had started so well, but had only dwindled down to gloomy: He had actually gone to breakfast this time, and had worked straight through gym. He had an enjoyable conversation with Aelita, in which he explained the concept and points of food. The materialization program had been launched, and launched, and had failed. Jeremy's hope disappeared slowly, along with the sunlight as night fell. It was 11:36pm; lights out had been hours ago. Right now, the only sound in Jeremy's room was the click-click of keys, the soft humming of the computer, and his light breathing. The computer screen illuminated his face, bits of code reflected in his glasses.
"I'll never get her materialization right," the young genius muttered bitterly under his breath. Pushing the keyboard up slightly, he buried his head in hi

„… maid café. I was thinking of doing this a while now and when I heard the good news about your ankle, I just thought, let’s do it. Your part there is to sit on a little table and every time someone comes in, you tell them where a table on which they can sit. And the guests have to go to you and then you can take their order. Sound easy, doesn’t it?”
“Yeah, I would really love to do it!!”
My world becomes colourful again. Not only I can leave the bed, but although I can help with such a cool thing. All the loneliness and boredom of the past few days is ravished in barely a second.
The next day
It’s the first time in a while that I’m being awaked by my alarm
Prelude: Cthulhu vs. Charles Barkley
Insanus Abe: ...This is the most ridiculous and craziest match we'll ever do.
Madness Abe: Hey, Dan and Lacie did Shaq vs. 50 Cent and CyberAgent did his own share of crazy matches, so we ought to join in on the bandwagon and prove why we're called "Madness" and "Insanus".
Xl9: If the crazy guy think this is crazy, Abe, then you really need to re-evaluate this match.
Madness Abe: Anyway, the indie game community has come up with amazing titles and games, but sometimes a bizarre comes out with an alternate character interpretation on existing characters...or people in this game.
Insanus Abe: This is so ridiculous...
Xl9: Cthulhu, the reformed Elder God turned Hero!
Madness Abe: And Charles Barkley, the Ultimate Slams Master. Joining is today is Death Battle veteran, Xl9, and together we'll analyze each fighter's weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win a Death Battle!
You Wouldn't Hurt Me chapter 1Marshall Lee paced back and forth in his living room restlessly, his hands a shaking mess. A frustrated hiss escaped the boy's pale lips as the unknown hunger once again ripped through his cold body. The wave of pain that tore through his undead nerves caused the vampire to convulse and collapse to the floor, his chest heaving as he continued to take blow after blow. Almost sobbing from the pain, he instinctively curled into a ball, and let out a frustrated growl. For weeks now, this mysterious hunger had plagued him. It was so bad that no matter how hard he tried, he could not distract himself from the ravenous hunger that had over taken him. Playing his guitar didn't work, neither did sucking the red out of everything he owned, even visiting his friends didn't seem to pull him away from this glob awful feeling. Nothing seemed to work and Marshall was near, if not past, his breaking point. As the pain began to temporarily subside, the vampire kings dark eyes lazily opened. Drawing in

Getting Over The Fear Part 1
"Hey Heath, I got an idea!" Nicole said. "Tell me." Heath said interested. "You know how gay guys like you like other guys right? Well girls also like guys and do to your wide hips, nice legs, hourglass figure, rounded face, and overall feminine body structure, I could dress you up as a girl so you could go up to guys and they'll think your a normal straight girl." "Nah, they would know I'm a guy." Heath said looking down. "Oh come on, his is one of the best options you can take, and if you do this, I'll give you 200$ in return and pictures of me." Nicole said with honesty. "Are you sure it'll work?" Heath said with consideration. "Positive." "Ok, I'll do it. "Great! Now if you will excuse me, I got to get to my next class. Meet me at my house at 5!"
Heath arrived at Nicole's house right at 5:00 and walked up to her snow covered house. The door was unlocked, and Heath opened it. Like usual when going to Nicole's house, he saw her orange walls and unique furniture. He sat down on a sofa

A diary entry from Andrea, 2 years later...
Hi! I just got back back from a photoshoot one of my moms friends was doing. I think this one looks of me looks very cute. Don't you think? She took pictures of me and Sasha, and speaking of her, she is, like, the best sister you can have. We very rarely get into fight sand she helps me when I'm in need. I consider myself lucky. My new school is awesome. I've made over 6 new friends, most of them obviously girls. I told them about my story and they are very interested. My mom is also very caring. So far, I've had one of the best A streaks in my school. And I've gotta watch out for the boys, they hit on me hard teehee. I am very good at sports, and I am in excellent shape. I still have the same mind as my boy self, but I've been attracted to girl subjects and topics very easily that I am not interested in boy topics like sports, comics, and science as well as other stuff. I am 14 years old now, and Sasha is 17. Sasha has a really nice and cute

Jerlita week: Nerdy- Admit itJeremy stared with his mouth hanging slightly open, astonishment and surprise written all over his face.
"I did it!" Aelita exclaimed triumphantly, grinning widely.
"But you How?" Jeremy spluttered. His look of surprise was so comical, Aelita had to laugh.
Jeremy kept staring. No, this this wasn't right. It was luck. Or, was it a fluke, maybe, in his strategy? But he had checked, and there were no flukes. No
"You you didn't!"
"Yes, I did, Jeremy. Admit it."
"But " He stared once more. All the evidence was there. She had done it.
"Admit it," Aelita repeated tauntingly, obviously enjoying it too much.
"You know," Odd said as he sauntered over with that annoying grin, "princess is right."
Jeremy sighed for the second time in less than that many minutes
"Admit it," Aelita said once again, smile not dampening.
"Okay, okay, I admit it. Aelita, you've beaten me at chess."
