Nightmare3711, The Reader
Hi, welcome to my profile.
"Floating masses of rock don't exactly make great places for life. It's better than nothing, at least. Better than most places out there."
Delvadria, a large collection of islands forever stuck in the air above an unknown and unexplored land. Clouds block the view of the ground beneath in tight clusters. It closely resembles Skyloft from Zelda: Skyward Sword (My personal favorite in the series) except that the small Delvin towns are far from thriving. Creatures such as Rockskippers, Flutterworms, and Groundrippers constantly threaten the very existence of the Delvin people.
This is not a story as much as it a kind of organized place for me to put my thoughts and ideas. I might end up becoming a jumbled mess but bear with me! I've started a lot of projects recently that I haven't gotten to finishing at all, so I decided why not just give them out to the world to finish? I've included all sorts of things I've done, including sketches, short stories, writing prompts, poetry, and quite a bit more!
This story was inspired by the ever-famous Snow story that was published way back in (year). When I first read the story upon discovering this site, I fell in love with reading and writing romance stories with relatable characters that tackle issues such as suicide, depression, anxiety, and many other things.
Disclaimer: There will be a lot of "sap" so to speak in this story, so if you cringe at the thought of excessive hugging, holding hands, and - heaven forbid - kissing, then this is not the story for you. On top of that, there will be some mentions of issues such as depression and anxiety in this story, as well as sexual content. You've been warned.

It took you six hours to write THAT? I can barely go an hour without having to move on to something else. You have some true dedication.

“It's over now, Benny boy.” says a familiar voice from the shadows. “you’ve lost.”
“You’ve lost.” Not only did that sentence sting to hear, but it killed me. Who knew just two simple words could hurt so much? They started to echo in my head, over and over and over again. I allowed my head to hang. There was nothing I could possibly do. He was right; I had lost. I lost yet again.
I'm not sure what this is supposed to be about but I guess it's up for interpretation
I've been told that I’m impatient. I couldn’t deny that; I've always hated waiting. I avoid waiting in lines whenever possible, but this is the one time I will ever wait longer than I need to. I've already waited 15 minutes since I arrived. That's 15 minutes longer than I am normally willing to wait and probably 15 minutes longer than I should have to wait.
I’m currently waiting at a rather fancy - yet expensive - restaurant. They wrap their silverware in this cloth-like substance (I’m not entirely sure what it is, honestly) and then place it down to right of the dish. I’m not sure why they do it on the right side, probably because most people are right handed? I’m not sure.
The reason I’m waiting is because I signed up to a dating site online and was paired with someone not too far from my home. We’re going to have dinner tonight at this place. I’ve never been to this restaurant but I quite like it.
But… is that...? Could it be her? StarPower2000? She looks like the profile picture, that’s for sure.
This is one I just edited. It was much worse before now. You can decide how the night goes.

I chose this nickname because I like the numbers 3, 7, and 11 and I also like horror stories because I'm an edgelord.
It's not that hard to figure out.

That's exactly what I was going for, so thanks!

This is just something I rambled out when I was bored. I just got this itch to write that I just had to scratch. It's not necessarily a story or anything, but I might add more onto it later on. There are likely some errors in this but whatever.
Dread. Fear. Hatred. Judgment. These are just a small few of the many words I would use to describe the worst place in all of Westwood: Denver High, or as many of my friends like to call it: Purgatory. Denver High is Hell on Earth. The faculty thinks up the least moral punishments ever experienced by man, woman, and child. The food is a mixture of pain and suffering in physical form, which is then boiled in the blood, sweat, and tears of those that dare disobey the demons that bear the title of “Teacher”, and it is then pumped full to the brim with toxic chemicals of unknown origin where it ends up on the plates of innocent students just trying to survive the eternal torture. The bathrooms are marked with all sorts of human waste across every square inch from the ceiling to the floor. Much of it probably isn’t even from humans due to the sheer size of most of it. Doodles of penises can be seen from every angle in every bathroom, even the women’s bathrooms. The classrooms are devoid of any natural light due to a lack of windows. Any room that has windows allows you to see the storms that plague the sky above, casting a foreboding shadow across the land. Skid marks stripe the parking lot while pizza boxes, paper and plastic bags, cigarettes, and all sorts of other trash is scattered across it. Walls both inside and outside are defaced almost every-other week by some masterpiece which is only removed shortly after.
And if you think all of that is exaggerated then you’d be wrong.

This week we have a new prompt!
There was a quiet creaking noise upstairs. The first one was shortly followed by another as if someone was slowly creeping around upstairs. Was someone else in the house?
"Nobody else should be here" Janette stated, "I was just upstairs."
Once your submission is complete, submit it here! Just remember you can't submit a story until tomorrow.
The two corners on 8/1/2018 7:21:32 PM
Currently we have to forum categories that both end in "Corner." Can we rename one of them? Like "Reading Corner" could be "Reading Room" or something of the like.

I've actually created a D&D homebrew world map for "proof of concept" for one of my games. I even created a custom map for it and everything.
And yes, I have received some submissions already. Not this week, sadly.

The ones you submit will not end up being in game unless they are voted the best for that week. Those that win several times over will be asked to help me work on the story for the games.
I've written up a new prompt for this week. If you want to write a few paragraphs you guys are welcome to do so and submit yours using the following link.

There are no maturity rules as long as there are no images that have gore or nudity. Other things you cannot include:
- URLs to any site I don't approve of in advance
- Flashing images
- Unnecessary racial or sexual slang
- Loud audio
You do not have to use the prompt in your submission unless I say otherwise. You are free to use it if you would like.
The huge project I'm working on is technically two projects. They're two separate video games I plan to release at the same time. Both will be incredibly text heavy. I could really use the help.
I will try to post the prompt here every week along with the links to vote on, submit, and view all of the submissions for that week. I just released this weeks prompt today. If any of you want to join in, submit your short story using this link:
You can't vote today because I don't want stories that are incredibly short. The longer they are the better. They don't have to necessarily "end", but they do have to make sense.
This week's prompt:
"I'm impatient. I've always hated waiting. I avoid waiting in line whenever possible, but this is the one time I have to wait. And not only do I have to wait, but I've already waited 15 minutes since I arrived. That's 15 minutes longer than I am normally willing to wait. Did she set me up?
But… is that...? Could it be her? StarPower2000? She looks like her profile picture at least."
