Dust filled the room, blinding his optics and clogging his vents. He forced several quick bursts of air through them. Perhaps he could clear the overworked mechanisms. It didn’t work. As soon as he hacked some out, more dust flowed in. Now he resembled some sort of pathetic organic thing, clearing its respiratory organs. He cursed quietly. At least his vocals weren’t tied intrinsically to his vents, like some fleshling.
Warnings on his HUD display pinged as his internal temperature slowly started climbing and his vents failed to compensate. Nothing serious. Yet. He planned to be long gone before the dust and heat buildup caused any permanen
TF: Entomophobia - Halloween TradeTitle: Entomophobia
Pairings: None
Rating: PG
Warnings: Disturbing imagery
Author's Note: This is my submission for the TF-SecretSanta Halloween Trade for xDeadlyxxxDesirex. This is a Halloween story, so I tried for scary. It's not as lighthearted as my normal fics, although it has its humorous moments (I couldn't help myself). I pulled on two personal fears of mine when I wrote this, to try and add some real creepiness to it. I hope it works. Time conversions: Klik 1.2 minutes, Nanoklik approximately 1 second.

The Rust Sea spread across Cybertron's equator, an immense red scar across its surface. Erratic pillars twisted into the sky. Corrosive gasses bled from the ground, slowly eating the land away, turning everything to an endless expanse of rust. Across the ground, miniature hills rose and fell, forming 'waves' that traveled as far as the optic could see.
Numerous Cybertronian artists tried to duplicate the Rust Sea in

The copse lay amidst the alley clutter, unmoving, while the first spots of rain splattered on his Armani suit. The night buried him in shadows, the distant streetlights barely illuminating him. Thin rivulets of blood, black in the weak light, pasted down a few graying tufts of hair. His head bent backwards at an angle no living person could achieve. Knowing the futility of it, Batman still reached over and checked for a pulse.  
Looking at the dead never got any easier. It was ugly, no matter how peaceful the passing may have been. Yet still, Batman crouched besides the unmoving form, gently closing the man's eyes. The rain pattered against his hood and cape while he stood his silent vi

Universe: G1 (Pre-Earth)
Pairings: None
Rating: PG
Warnings: Violence, Non-canon character death
Author's Note: This is my (mostly) unedited first draft. The contest specified minimal editing, which was extremely difficult for me. While I don't think this is bad, it's not as refined as I'd normally post. In fact, there are two details which need work/editing. Hopefully, they're not as obvious to others as they are to me (since I'm super critical of my own work).
Smoke hung heavy over Praxus, obscuring optics and clogging vents. Here, the once proud city-state stood cracked and charred, covered in ash. The glorious crystals of the Helix Gardens, the pinnacle of Cybertronian art and beauty, lay shattered. Many of the civilians were gone, long since fled or dead. Those that remained had abandoned their civilian ways, forced into more militaristic roles.

Fan-Fiction-Tastic News #13

Thu Oct 2, 2014, 5:54 PM by SingingFlames:iconsingingflames:




Hello all! Welcome to the thirteenth edition of my Fan-Fiction-Tastic News!

Big news this month! I am temporarily joining our lovely Literature CV staff: the pie-loving GrimFace242, the incredible IrrevocableFate and our local poetry guru ShadowedAcolyte. What does this mean? I now accept Daily Deviation suggestions for both Fan Fiction and Literature! Don't worry, I'm not abandoning Fan Fiction. I've always adored the written word, be it fan fiction, original fiction or non-fiction. That will never change!

I'm always available for you to contact with anything you need, be it community questions or thoughts, or any other help I can provide! Please, feel free to note me, reply here or leave a comment on my profile.

September Daily Deviations


Sadly, there were no DDs last month. Please keep sending those suggestions (now Literature, as well). I love receiving them! (Yes, self-suggestions too!)

Every week, I feature a new fan fiction story on my profile page. Drop by and check them out!

A Fateful Heist
 
              They had been watching the door for what felt like hours, and it was beginning to get dark. It would not be too long before Palonirya would be leaving her clothing shop, The Divine Elegance, sure to lock it up tightly behind her before heading on over to Green Emperor Way to meet with her not-so-secret love, Sergius Verus. It was a sort of weekly ritual for the Altmer and it was not uncommon for her to be out most of the night, sneaking back to her quaint home above her shop early in the morning, with the hopes that no one would notice. It just so happened that the seemingly unassuming beggars who wandered the streets had
No Need to BreatheThey swam towards the light, plunging deeper and deeper.
He felt no need to breathe.
Her arms guided him through the waters as her tail propelled them forward.
She must be one of God's creatures.
She began to almost dance in the water, spinning and swirling through the pristine waves.
"Let me help you," she had said. She had forgiven him. And now he was swallowed by the water that was her home.
A life for a life.
He felt no need to breathe.

The aged sailor leaned back in his chair. The youngun's surrounding him couldn't believe that the tale he'd told of mermaids, Blackbeard, and the Fountain of Youth had really happened to him, and less than a year ago.
"Yessir," he continued. "We never seen that missionary again. Fell in love with tat mermaid he did. Ran off durin' te last battle." He reached for his pint. "You know, o' course, tat a mermaid's kiss keeps a man frum drownin'. O' course, it got to be a real kiss, one o' love."
ReptiliaHe is fourteen when he starts to notice a change.
He is fourteen when he begins to notice the skin of his hands become swallowed up by hard and rigid scales that are as deep a green as the water of the bayou he grew up beside. He is fourteen when claws erupt from his fingertips, when a flap of skin stretches its way across his hands and feet, and when his teeth become more jagged, and more knife-like, like the crocodiles which his body now resembles.
The doctors call it a genetic defect, a gene leftover from the reptiles. They can't do anything about it of course, nature has run its course, and they very much doubt his human body will survive such an extreme physical transformation. But it does, and he eventually gets to the point where he resembles a two-legged crocodile instead of a man covered with scales. The transformation, painful and monstrous as it must look to others, isn't the hard part; it isn't the thing he loathes with such passion.
It's the people; the humans who look at
Innocent: A Thranduil One-ShotThranduil's eyes became heavier with every glass of wine. But that was part of the plan. The plan to forget. Unfortunately, it was, thus far, failing. Though he had had consumed more glasses of wine than he could be bothered to count, his memories were only becoming clearer. The door of the throne room creaked open, interrupting him halfway through another glass. The Elvenking turned his head wearily in the door's direction, his eyes straining to focus on the figure entering the room. He heard the quick patter of little feet and sighed deeply. It was too soon for questions.
"Ada! Ada!" Legolas squealed, running and jumping into his father's lap. He buried his face into Thranduil's cloak, his tiny hands reaching towards his father for a hug. "You've come home!" Thranduil winced, putting a hand up to his shoulder, hissing out a long breath of pain. Legolas didn't seem to notice. He looked up at Thranduil, brows furrowed in confusion.

Now Accepting Lit Suggestions!Hi, guys!
I am temporarily accepting Daily Deviation suggestions for Literature deviations until a new Lit CV is chosen! I am extremely excited to help out the community in this new capacity, even if it's only temporarily.
Here are my guidelines (which remain mostly unchanged):

Please remember, if you send me any suggestions to mention whether it is a Literature or a Fan Fiction suggestion. Thank you and start sending in those suggestions!
October Book Club: Selections from LovecraftTo help get you in the mood (hint: the mood is "insane") for Halloween at month's end, this month CRLiterature's Book Club will be reading a deranged selection of short stories and a novella by Western horror's creepy grandfather, H.P. Lovecraft.

This excellent abominable anthology contains all the pieces we're going to use, as well as many other enjoyable disturbing tales.
The Antediluvian Details
The atrocious works we'll be reading are: "Pickman's Model", "The Music of Eric Zann", "The Thing on the Doorstep", and "At the Mountains of Madness".
The mid-month discussion journal will begin on October 15th (via CRLiterature). By then, you should have read al

Last month, I asked, "If you could have any crossover (regardless of legality, medium, common sense, or any other factor), which one would you love to see? Explain."

Here are your replies:
:iconjzlobo:

I would love to see a Doctor Who/Transformers crossover. The two practically crossed over in the Marvel UK comics many times, but all we got were teasers. Particularly, I would like to see the Ninth Doctor meeting the Beast Wars cast. It'll never happen, of course, but it would be fascinating to see the PTSD Doctor deal with a race that's most known for its endless warfare.


:iconjust-to-look1:

I would love to see a Phineas and Ferb/Tom & Jerry Kids crossover, regardless of the legality and common sense! :dummy: Because I love these two shows!


Here is my reply:
:iconsingingflames:

My dream crossover would have to be Neil Gaiman's Sandman with pretty much any series I enjoy. The joy with Sandman is that it can blend with anything. The main characters are universal entities/concepts (Dream, Death, Destiny, Desire, Despair, Delirium, and Destruction). I can't think of any franchise where they wouldn't fit in.


New discussion topic!


What are your favorite topics/genres to write about? To read? Are they the same and, if not, why?
