ShoujoAddict, The Contributor
Hi there, assuming you've come to see this profile implies you would want to know something about me. Well I'm your regular loquacious, nerdy, science loving, anime addicted, college going person. I like reading, poetry and writing a lot so expect some works from me...(if I ever finish them that is.)
A quatrain fills a little space,
Although it’s pretty small,
And often times, as in this case,
It has no point at all.
Some quotes that sound good to me:
"If you don't have time to read, you don't have time to write."
"Write without fear, edit without mercy."
"If I waited for perfection I would never write a word."
“I define science fiction as the art of the possible. Fantasy is the art of the impossible”
"Nothing in this world exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is just specualtion."
"May you live all the days of your life."
"Love is a serious mental disease."
"All that we see and seem is just a dream within a dream."
-Edgar Allan Po
"Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle...and wonder if we'll ever get the chance to kill him."
-2B, Nier Automata.
"If you want to live a happy life tie it to a goal not to people or things."
Who will believe my verse in time to come,
If it were fill’d with your most high deserts?
Though yet, heaven knows, it is but as a tomb
Which hides your life and shows not half your parts.
If I could write the beauty of your eyes
And in fresh numbers number all your graces,
The age to come would say “This poet lies;
Such heavenly touches ne’er touch’d earthly faces.”
So should my papers, yellowed with their age,
Be scorn’d like old men of less truth than tongue,
And your true rights be term’d a poet’s rage
And stretched metre of an antique song:
But were some child of yours alive that time,
You should live twice, in it and in my rhyme.
The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The forest paths are dry,
Under the October twilight a water,
Mirrors the still sky.
Charles IV, king of Bohemia and holy roman emperor was considered one of the most influential and successful rulers of his time. However, not all of his decisions were wise...
Special thanks to mazardark for his advice on historical combat, and to cricket for beta reading.
Also, this is an entry to Corgi's unofficial contest of the lords and my first story on the site.
This fan fiction is based on 'Kimi Ni Todoke' a manga series. If you don't want your experience with the manga to be spoiled then please do not read this.
To any fellow otaku fans out there I apologize if I'm not able to give you the level of depth you experience from the actual manga(since I'm nowhere near the level of Karuho Shiina)but nevertheless I hope you like this.
To all other readers, well if you know about the series it certainly would help to better grasp and "feel" the story, but if you don't want to go through the painstaking effort of reading scans from the net (and ruining your laptop with viruses) then you can treat this as an individual story too; that being said I highly recommend you read the series later though.
Hope you enjoy!

My mom was loving, so loving and so kind
She was so doting, to my pranks she was blind,
But then one day,
I saw her bathe,
And this hidden, primal urge, arose in my mind,
I barged through the door, gleaming with joy,
Grabbed her from behind, my fist like her toy,
And then with a knife,
I pleasured her alive,
As she squealed in delight, "you're a good boy!"

I like the unique use of the meter here. Even though it seems vaguely random at first glance, there’s some sort of synchrony in play here. Use of ‘but’ completely fulfills the purpose of providing a ‘halt’ in the poem; and fact that it’s right before the ending line adds more to that atmosphere.
The context seems vaguely random, kind of like completely unrelated lines were added together; but this could just be your style of poetry. Still, if there was at least some ‘flow’ in the context, I would’ve liked it.
Creative use of meter and words here. Nice! 4 points.

I like the poem, even though it’s not extremely edgelord, the meter is flawless throughout. The unique ending line of the poem gives it a humorous aftertaste, and if that was the intention, it was executed nicely.
(Fact that the poem is based on a recent event is good too, and quite frankly, I’m amazed at the accurate description of the Texan lady here. You could’ve also added a nice black horse as her preferred means of transportation!)
‘Syphilis sack-flute’ I like this simile a lot. It manages to produce the image in my mind with very minimal effort. Good use of brevity.
The spacing and format really helps a lot while reading the limericks.
Nice poem, 5 points.

Necrophilia, as the context of the poem was a good choice, and the poem managed to get across the point and story rather nicely. I loved the use of the word ‘ambrosia’ here, the imagery from that word is nice. Using ‘undead’ was very metaphorical, since the the corpses could seem alive in the eyes Hill, which could me a motivation for his necrophilia.
‘And with this, dear Hill did show’ the use of inversion here is good, but it kinda seems somewhat out off meter; but it could just be me I think.
Anyway, nice poem. 5 points!

Interesting way of using jackfruit miz. I personally only use it for curries; but now I’m tempted to try it as a salad, or in the way you did.

Why would she not do such a thing? Raw onion rings have a wonderful aftertaste. No salad is complete without them! In fact, if any dish you eat is bland in taste, best solution is to chop a few pieces of raw onions and use it as garnishing. Nothing beats ‘em in garnishing.
There are some perfectly good dishes who’s flavour will be incomplete and worthless without raw onions.

Of course I can’t let the lord of edgelords and her daughter not know about this.

Alright! I’m so glad that a lot of people took an initiative in the last prompt, and many even tried making sonnets! Since last time we made a poem about nature, a very peaceful and scenic topic, let’s do something completely opposite this time!
This time the prompt is to make a poem that is as edgelord-ish as possible. Your poem should be gruesome, repulsive, horrifying and utterly disgusting! It should be medium to show the extent of filth in the human mind. If you want inspiration for this one, there are many rich sources like 4-chan, 8-chan, pedophile reports, murder reports, or the ultimate source, a poem inspired by the actions of the great moderator Kiel!
We all know limericks, 5 liner poems with an AABBA rhyme scheme that is generally used for light hearted jokes. So of course we’re going to use this light hearted poem format to express the inner devil of the mind! The optional requirement this time is making your poem a double-limerick, i.e a poem with ten lines, divided into 2 stanzas, each with 5 lines. Each stanza should follow the ‘AABBA’ rhyme scheme.
Now for the meter of limericks!
In general, for a limerick, lines one, two, and five have three stressed syllables, while lines three and four have two stressed syllables.
So the sounds should be somewhat like
Lines 1,2, 5: deeh-deeh-dah or deeh-dah-dee.
Lines 3,4: deeh-dah or dah-deeh
In general, just try and make the lines 1,2 and 5 sounding similar, but different from 3,4 and you’ll be set!
The number and placement of the unstressed syllables is flexible. There is at least one unstressed syllable between the stresses but there may be more – as long as there are not so many as to make it impossible to keep the equal spacing of the stresses. (If you want to know what unstressed and stressed syllables are, refer to the prompt of week 12)
An edgelord poem, with a repulsive context.
The poem should be a double limerick. A poem with 2 stanzas, each stanza should be 5 lines long and follow AABBA rhyme scheme.
Example of a double limerick:
I was walking down the street,
To perform a joyous feat,
But I stumbled,
And then I mumbled,
What a bad day to eat,
Then I came across a man,
With a good joyous plan,
He charmed me,
Then conned me,
And all I have is a can.
(I know, the example is vague; but this is just to give an idea of a double-limerick.)
