Just came out of school literally this minute depressed... This made me smile :)

They are so cool. Literally just made my day a whole lot better!!

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂Yay!☂

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂Hey, um, this was something I put on the previous post because I was bored, so uh yeah.☂

☂Or rather, this is the half of something that actually makes sense.☂

*wakes up once again*

*feels dull and lifeless*

*body has been healed*

*pinches self*

*no pain*

Am I dreaming?

*is at the bottom of a large set of stairs*

*touches the railing*

*the railing is cool and smooth to the touch*

So I'm not... but then... but then what... oh.

Oh.

*backs away from staircase*

*looks around*

*tries to find the top of the staircase*

*staircase goes up and up and up into another bright light*

I'm guessing nobody's here, am I right?

*silence*

Am I supposed to climb these stairs?

*silence*

*climbs stairs*

*up and up and up*

*and up and up and up*

*there is no change*

*an endless spiral staircase*

*leading him higher and higher from the ground*

*into unknown territory*

*but he doesn't care*

*and he will never care again*

*because he is dead*

*and dead people don't feel anything*

*if they did then they would be very, very sad*

*because there is nothing except for the stairs*

*and there will never be anything else*

*and he will never know what it feels like to lose hope with every step*

*he will just keep climbing*

*forever*

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

*continues to climb*

*up and up and up*

*and up and up*

*hours pass*

*then days*

*weeks*

*months*

*and finally years*

*decades*

*centuries*

*millenia*

*but he keeps walking*

*because there's an invisible force that makes him take every step*

*an invisible force that makes him keep going*

*and if he were alive it would be determination*

*or perhaps hope*

*but he's dead and so*

*it's merely a habit*

*it's as if he's a clock*

*tick*

*tock*

*left foot*

*right foot*

*it's really all the same*

*isn't it*

*but it's not as bad as one might think*

*because boredom does not exist*

*or so he thinks*

*because one day almost at the end of the world*

*he reaches the top of the staircase*

*where he finds a platform before he can continue to another set of stairs*

*and there is a beautiful garden*

*and there is a beautiful pool*

*and there is a beautiful seating area*

*and there is a beautiful balcony*

*but he does not enjoy this sight because*

*like I said*

*he is dead*

*and there is a lady smiling and waiting for him*

*in a posh-looking chair and she stands up*

*when she sees him*

*and says "Ah, I've been expecting you. Come. Please sit."*

*so he sits because really*

*what else can he do*

*she tells him he has a choice*

*not about sitting down because of course that's not what she's here to talk about*

*but about what he will do next*

*he can jump off the balcony, return to the bottom of the stairs, and climb again, with all his emotions returned to him*

*he can keep climbing the next set without his emotions*

*or he can just go to sleep forever*

*if he decides to drown in that pool over there*

*because it is a special pool that will allow him to truly die*

*apparently*

*he has no way of knowing*

*and he figures he may as well keep climbing*

*because he hasn't had emotions for so long*

*why should he start now*

*so he climbs again*

*for days*

*months*

*a very very long time*

*and he arrives at another platform and there is the lady again*

*but this time there is another lady next to her*

*her face is familiar but he doesn't know why*

*so he asks the first lady and she says that this is his wife*

*and she has just died*

*you are not sure about this*

*you thought centuries and millenia had passed but*

*no*

*it was just a few years*

*and he now will be cursed with negative emotions because his wife had the audacity to die*

*which is not fair*

*but life is not fair*

*and then the lady asks him if he would like to go to sleep forever but he says no because maybe the negative emotions will go away*

*so he keeps climbing*

*and now every step hurts*

*and tears leak out of his eyes*

*and loss is hurting his heart*

*and slowly he begins to wonder if maybe he should go to sleep*

*so he keeps climbing*

*and it's difficult*

*and it's painful and he's bored and scared at the same time*

*and then*

*finally*

*he reaches the top*

*and there's an old woman there*

*and he asks the old woman if he can go to sleep*

*so she says yes*

*but she says that if he had returned to the beginning of the staircase*

*or if he hadn't climbed in the first place*

*there was an exit*

*there was a way out*

*and he just didn't look in the right place*

*and he cannot go back there now*

*because he missed his chance*

*and so he gives up*

*and lets himself go to sleep*

*but what he didn't know was that*

*one small set of stairs up*

*was another exit*

*where he could be happy again*

*but he didn't go up*

*because he didn't know*

*and because it was too hard*

*so please*

*if you ever feel like your life is never-ending and hard and you just want to end it all*

*it is just about to get better*

*don't lose hope*

-The End

Oh, Ember, I didn't see the name change before. It's cool.

That's amazing, what you wrote. In a severely depressing but meaningful way. :)

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH, FORGOT TO REACT TO THE LEGO TRAILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


OH MY GOSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH THEY WERE SO AWESOME I WAS LIKE YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY WELL ACTUALLY I WAS JUST LIKE :O O_O WHAT BUT YEAH YEAH YEAH . . . . :) THEY'RE SO AWESOME!!!

☂THEY WERE SO COOL, RIGHT☂

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Mm.

[goes off behind a miscellaneous haystack]

[Fiddles with multicolored embroidery thread]

[realizes I lost the needle]

[assumes it must be in the haystack because that would be pretty ironic]

[tears apart the haystack]

[eventually finds the needle stuck through a piece of fabric in my sewing box]

☂☂knits next to Fabi doing her embroidery☂☂

Star Inkbright said...

@Ember: RIGHT.
WELL, LEFT.
BUT CORRECT. :)

@Fabi: :)

Today, I decided to fix the Luke problem in my head, you know from my ded story, except then when I started thinking it out it didn't get fixed and two more problems happened, and I was just like shitttttttttt. :P And I mentioned it to my friend and my friend was just like, have you noticed how stories don't always do what you want them to do, and things just sort of seem to happen? And I was like YES. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

:O One of the video on my Slipknot playlist got deleted, except it was the first video on there, so now the cover of the playlist will change . . . O_O

#ChaseForBookNine

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂EXACTLY.☂

☂Whenever problems happen and you fix them, the answers always give you more problems, but that's because normally you've fit the rest of what you're doing TO the thing that's giving you problems.☂

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂Well, variety is the spice of life, Starry :p☂

Star Inkbright said...

*notices five more Slipknot videos that are deleted*

. . .

Either YouTube is screwing up, or someone I know just had a major delete.

I think it might be YouTube, tbh.

#ChaseForBookNine

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂Youtube is sometimes strange.☂

☂So is tumblr☂

☂I can never find anything I post on tumblr even when I log out, yet somehow some of it gets reblogged 0_0☂

Star Inkbright said...






YouTube account Adam Curran has been terminated because we have received multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement from claimants, including:

WHAT THE FUCK????

Oh my gosh, poor Adam. He had so many videos. :/ That's so much work, just GONE.
I hope he can reupload them . . .

I'll see if he creates a new account and if I can find him. He was one of my favourite lyricsvideoists . . .

Should have put copyright warnings. *sighs*

Holly said...

these are great! i have such a fondness for lego movies made of things, especially since you can make good ones with almost no budget or filmmaking expertise!

Star Inkbright said...

*realises I can just search for Slipknot lyrics videos uploaded today* *finds nothing* *checks for the week* *nothing*
I can just check every day and wait for him to create a new channel. :)
*realises this is pretty stupid seeing as how I don't even know him* *shrugs*
I have sort of spoken to him before. He replied to a comment of mine, once.

@Ember: Was that @me? If so - *hugs* - it's fine. :) Searching's pretty easy, now I know how.

@Ember: No idea. :/ I'm crap with time.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

My teacher wouldn't let me quit choir and these girls were being bitches and like my best friends (who are twins) are moving to Australia and all this. Nothing really to be depressed about, but :)

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂And if you can't quit, just enjoy it, and think of it as practice for your singing skills, which will help if you ever want to do 1D covers.☂

☂Which, by the way, is something you should think about.☂

HOLD UP LITTLE THINGS BRRBRBRBRRBRBRBRBRB

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright said...

@Mara: :( *hugs*

Sorry I poofed. Was writing, then had dinner.

@Ember: There was this movie made from a true story (like, at the end of the movie, in the credits, they showed videos of the real girl at award ceremonies and that), and the bottom line is - she was a really, really, really good surfer who would probably have ended up representing whatever country she lived in in the Olympics. But then, she got her arm bitten off by a shark, and she couldn't surf anymore. As you can imagine, she was pretty damn devasted, because not only is she missing an arm and can't do half the things she could so easily do before, she now can't surf, and surfing was her l i f e. Eveyrone in her family was mad on surfing, and all her friends and that, and she tried really hard to do it but she just couldn't do it.
Then, by the end of the movie, she said to a journalist that if she could change what had happened, make the shark not bite her arm off, she wouldn't, because she'd learnt so much from seeing all that she'd seen and doing all that she'd done, and she thought that was worth it.

. . .
So my point is . . . even when things suck, they can be for a good reason.

Like, Hitler. I believe that what happened with World War Two and the like happened for a purpose, and that maybe one day the world will be better off.
That said, it was horrible. So many people suffered and I am NOT saying it's just fine for that to happen.

#ChaseForBookNine

Maralie Lily Charm said...

1D covers?
But I can't sing...! :P
That's the thing. She tells me I should do it and then gives out to me because I'm like an octave higher than everyone else but I CAN'T SING LOW ARGH

chaaaaaaaange change your liiiiife
Take it alllllllllllll

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((I tried doing NaNoWriMo last year, but a close friend of mine's brother died, and- well- it would have been sad for anyone, but it was especially sad for her because... Her mother committed suicide when she was 3, and her brother committed suicide in the same way. Surprisingly, thankfully, my friend was ok- she was sad, but really she just wanted to move on, and she turned it into a life lesson in a way- so that was good. But my point is, that was in the first week of November, and I dropped everything to help her, and I guess I sort of broke my momentum and never got any farther with my NaNoWriMo story. And now I'm sort of tempted to say this thing I realized, but it's just sad and I don't need to say it, so I think I'll just leave it at that.))

#ChaseForBook9

Luciana said...

I'm wondering if it'd be better to spend a while on a sequel to ITS rather than rushing it for NaNoWriMo...

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((If it were me, I'd start another story for NaNoWriMo because I'd want to focus more and put detail in the sequel because it has to be derivative and that would be easier and feel more right to me, but that's just me. You could write the sequel for NaNoWriMo so you have a ton of raw material to start with, and then just heavily edit it if you don't like some things. Or expand it later, or anything like that.))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((Ok, I'm just going to rant now, because I want to. Maybe some part of me has to. I realized so many things so long ago but I never told anyone, because it just wasn't relevant. It's long and rant-y and not the kind of thing most people want to listen to, just because nobody likes getting lectured at. Well, most people don't. But this is just a comment on a blog, so I can write whatever I want, and if you want to read it you can and if you don't want to read it you can just skip it, (this comment is really really long, apparently, so I'm breaking it into parts. Please DO NOT FEEL COMPELLED TO READ THIS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO.easy, and I won't be offended or anything. Sometimes I look back at all my characters' lives and I think, jeez, they're just so depressing. And almost everyone's story is depressing. Some have been bad from the start and just keep getting worse, others had awesome lives that they suddenly lost all at once. And sometimes I feel bad, and I think that someone's life is so bad it's just not realistic... But the thing is, people's real lives... They're not cake. They're just as hard. Often, they're harder. And things just keep getting worse, and you wonder- or, I wonder, I can't assume that everyone does- how people can even wake up in the morning. I wonder how people can keep their eyes open for a second without crying. I wonder how people not only get up and keep breathing and living normally, but they actually face all the things that make their lives awful every day. And they do it because they have to- there's no real alternative most of the time- but I wonder how they can. And people think they're not strong, but they are. They're so strong. Stronger than they'll ever be able to believe. I've never once met a good person who gave themselves as much credit as they deserved. That's not to say they all hate themselves, but they never give themselves enough credit. And a lot of them do hate themselves. So I think even when characters have absurdly horrific lives, it's actually realistic. And things happen in reality that wouldn't even be plausible in fiction. Like, I was talking about Tesla a few weeks ago, and I was saying

☂Aw. But thank you for popping in, Jubean. <3☂

Alastair Cruciatus said...

how he nearly died four times before he even got to America. Once just after elementary school because his dad wanted him to be a priest and told him he couldn't go to school anymore. And he just lost his will to live entirely. He feel ill and almost died just because he didn't want to live. The doctors couldn't find anything wrong with him, but he was actually going to die. His father told him he could go to the best school in the country, and he made a miraculous recovery. After he graduated that school and wanted to continue his education, the same thing happened. Then, when he went to visit his family while he was attending college, he caught cholera and almost died from that. And later, he started dying again and no one knew why, but this time he wanted to live more than anything, because he had so much to invent. His friend told him he should start going outside, and he started taking walks every day, and gradually he recovered. The problem that time was that he almost literally worked himself to death. He studied so hard, he would often forget to eat and sleep. Like, just outright forget. He'd been doing that since middle school, but nobody could get him to stop. He just loved what he did that much. Then, later, he was almost drafted into the army before he could go to America. Luckily for him, his father had some connections and got him out of it, on account of a very weak immune system. So I told my friend all of that, and then I said, "if I wrote that into a story, people would complain that it was unrealistic" and one of the girls who'd been listening said "wait so what story is he from?" and I said he was real, and it was a true story, and she was in disbelief for a bit. And, like, if you did that to a character in a story, people would say it was unrealistic and they'd get tired of the character almost-dying so many times for such ridiculous reasons. But that's real. And I think often, the reality is a lot crazier than the fiction. And really, we only gain our ideas for fiction from reality. Everything is derivative. And I think fiction, when you think about how the world works and how knowledge works, is actually just as real as anything else. It's just a story. The only difference is how we label it. Of course, you can't interact with fictional people. But you also can't interact with historical people. And this is really really long now, and I'm going to get into my life philosophy and all that if I continue, so I'm going to stop.))

☂I think the reason people get annoyed when they read things that are too depressing or whatever is because they read in the first place to get away from those kinds of things.☂

☂But then my advice would be just not to read those kinds of things.☂

☂That said, sometimes people gravitate towards them even though they don't want to read them. People like to wallow. And then they get angry at the author.☂

☂It's not fair, but it's understandable.☂

No more than usual.

I generally am more cryptic when I'm sleepy, so it wouldn't be surprising if I was.

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Hi Ari...

Mm. When I rant, I usually get all apologetic at the end and ruin the whole thing.

#ChaseForBook9

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((And yesterday this girl was telling me the story of one of her roleplay characters, and she was engaged to this guy and then they got separated and she ended up killing herself shortly after... And she was telling me how this girl had had a pretty negative life and the guy she was engaged to was, like, her last hope for/source of happiness... And then I thought of Em. And I was like, Em actually has even more challenges, because she has kids to look after and a lawsuit with some jerk involving the kids she's trying to look after. And on top of that she tries to be there for all of us, and deal with her friends' problems. And it hit me- again- it hits me a lot- and I wondered how the heck she can even get out of bed. Like, that kind of weight to carry, all the time... And if you were so convinced that it would never get any better, because in so many years it never had... I mean, I'm not that strong. I was just imagining how it must feel for her to wake up. And then, how does she fight the urge not to just roll over and go back to sleep and never wake up or do anything ever again? How... How do you do that? How can people do that? And I have to go now. But basically, she's strong. And we all are, and we don't give ourselves enough credit. So give yourself credit.))

☂Hey, um, if I'm allowed to rant... and I'm not trying to take the awesome-rant-power thing away from Ari, because I can't rant for shit, sooo yeah.☂

☂I'm so afraid of death.☂

☂I don't know why I can't just not be afraid of death. I don't know why it has to keep looming in front of me all the time and I don't know why I have to feel this scared. I don't want to die. I would live forever even if it meant I had to grow disgustingly old and ugly and watch everybody die. I would live forever even if it meant I had to float in space alone with nobody and nothing. I don't want to just float into nothingness. I want to be me. I wouldn't care if all my memories got erased and I wouldn't care if I became somebody else. And I know I won't care once I'm dead anyway. Because I won't exist. And I won't be able to think.☂

☂And I don't want to have to live in fear. I'm lucky because I have a wonderful life and a loving family (even if my mom can be a little silly sometimes!) but it's hard to have these panic things when nobody understands them. And it feels unfair, even though I should be GLAD they don't have this problem.☂

☂And I always feel like it's my fault. I feel like I could stop it if I wanted to but I'm choosing to not stop it because I'm a loser. Or because I like pity parties.☂

☂I'm tired.☂

I see. I, personally, don't ship Mormor, but we all ship what we ship, so they say. Actually, no, they don't say that, I made it up just now. But the point still stands.

*applaudes* well done.

Yeah mormor is one of my OTP and i wrote a thing with Johnlock and Mormor and i cried. (By cried i mean 1 or 2 tears. I am phsyically incapable of crying.)

☂What is Mormor, btw?☂

Moriarty and Moran, Mycroft.
Wow, that was a lot of M's.

☂That's the only thing I can think of that kinda wouldn't really be crackable unless I had certain info or I was Mycroft.☂

Sebastian Moran (Moriarty's snipper) and Jim Moriarty.

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Fine. Two of the names are a reference to a song, and represent two lines of it.

The third name is from something I'm writing.

It's not really meant to be decoded...

Because, girl, in the original books, Moran didn't come into the picture until after Sherlock faked his death, half-mad with revenge and bloodlust after the death of his boss, Professor Moriarty.

*hugs everyone who complimented me on my ranting* Thank so you much. Everyone at school just generally tells me to shut up. XD

@Ari: *hugs* I don't see how you could even class that rant as unneeded and irrelevant. It was beautiful. :)

Ember: :( *hugs* I think most people are afraid of death to some extent.
And - in a way, it's good that you're afraid of death, because it means you don't want to die.
I don't really have any advice on stopping panic attacks, sorry . . . I feel like this is a really shit response. :/

My characters are a bad influence on me . . . they swear more than I do so then I automatically swear more than I do . . .

☂OOOOH that makes sense. Yeah. Brainfart.☂

The Grave of a Coward said...

I have a problem with writing, sometimes, where I get so into the character that I start talking like them. I'm renowned among my friends for doing great silly accents, so if I'm writing someone who's southern like our favorite psycho Billy-Ray Sanguine, I'll start talking in a southern accent and I can't stop for hours.

I played Mass Effect today. I promoted my Infiltrator class AGAIN, unlocked some new weapons (including a pistol that fires explosive rounds that can be used as proximity mines)... But I STILL don't have the Awakened Collector character that I want.

Oh well. The Quarian Infiltrator is still awesome, even at level 1 because I promoted her from level 20. I just ran around with my sub-machine gun and my high-powered pistol shooting everyone.

It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Allow me to introduce myself. By day, I am Annika Barnosky, teen blogger and writer. By night, I am Doctor Precocious, monster hunter extraordinaire, accompanied by my indispensable butler, Aubrey, and our creepy black van. I am an Energy-Thrower, a daring adventurer, a skilled monster-hunter, of course, and, though I have no home of my own, I have a semi-permanent residency at the Midnight Hotel. I also play poker with a variety of high-profile personages.
