“I don’t get him. I don’t get him one little bit.”
“Guys aren’t too complicated,” Howie brushes off, hunching over a new assembly of metal-linked parts. He swirls the screwdriver through his fingers with a prowess that makes it seem like a detached limb, and you smile—Howard Stark is just a kid in his workshop.
“Don’t give me that contrived shit,” you say, snapping your teeth over your bottom lip. Your smiles are often easily erased. “I hate that ‘women come from Venus, men from Mars’ bullshit. If I’m gonna stay trapped in the past, I’ll beat it out of all of you before the future is stuck dealing with this crap.”
“That mouth.” Howie still hasn’t adjusted to your brilliant slews of ill-tempered words, but he’s getting better at digesting the principles of your rants. He eyes you for a mom

Between the Fates
An endless cloud filled with colours you don’t recognize stains your vision. You float in the intangible space, your limbs extending, stretching as far as you can see at impossible lengths, and still hurdling further. When the tension releases, they retreat to their normal size again, but you still feel big, as endless as the colourful nothing that grips you. You twist your head, and it spins and spins until your neck is a tangled knot, threatening to rupture your head. You shouldn’t breathe as clearly as you do, but not even panic quells your heart. The static of the universe bristles harmlessly, thick electric lines showering the colourful hue. The closest you can think of is magenta, but it’s certainly not.
You hover in suspended time for an infinity before something transforms in your peripheral gaze. The three robed men stand still as you shift your stare, their stance supported by an invisible floor. O

In the metropolitan downtown of Domino City, duelists never rest. Rare cards sell for the same amount as a new cellphone, snatching savings until the pool dwindles and demands sky-rocket. Card trading stole the revenue on the black market, attracting a new pool of clientele, from elementary school kids to struggling single parents. Those working in any field, from the grocery clerks to the accountants tucked away in skyscrapers—everyone was sucked in by the latest phenomena.
Everyone, pointedly, except for you.
“How was school today?” your father chimes from the storage closet. Your mother sweeps at your feet with the sharp blades of her broom, shooing you out of the entryway. You nearly trip on your thigh-high boots, tangled with a pair of your mother’s sandals.
“Uh, it was fine!” you holler back. You step over the rest of the misshapen pile. “My geography test was pretty solid.

Gilmore Hodge never found your room. He thought he did, and led you to a broom closet stacked with broken filing cabinets and old-fashioned cleaning chemicals. You were grateful you told him you recognized the place; if he’d followed you in, he probably would have dragged you back to the bunks. Instead you found refuge in a corner and propped your back between the wall and a bucket of paper that wafted mildew. Sleep consumed you before your eyes fully closed.
In the morning, you awake with another headache, but your body moves faster in the light of a new day. You barely finish closing the closet door behind you when a familiar face appears over your shoulder.
“They’re looking for you,” Steve says.
You shake out your frizzy mane of hair. “Oh my god, I want to go back to bed.”
“They think you’ve escaped,” he finishes.
Steve tails you as you dash down the hall, sliding on

None of my stories are discontinued, despite any absent updates (in this case, namely NPNP). I mostly operate on what readers seem most enthused about and go from there.
yo (ho), i'm bat and i have a passion for written fashion.
21 / infp / space cadet & professional sassmaster / !!!!!!
i'm a self-taught writer with high ambitions and interstellar goals. turtles and pugs send me into an emotional coma, as well as movie trailers. i cry over everything, especially when i get really excited, so i'm 100% unchill whenever i start using exclamation marks. (!!!!!)
you can also find me on a few other sites!:
Author's Note: I'm primarily focused on original prose right now. While I'm years away from submitting to a publisher's house, my perfectionist nature isn't allowing me to slack off in the mean time. Delays will be frequent, and inactivity is a regretful necessity. Thank you for your support and understanding.
