Orange, The Apprentice Scrivener
My quarantine is so long that I might actually do something productive.
"I think everyone is fairly boring. You're really really boring though. Like white bread on a clean plate but under the bread on the other side is tobasco with sprinkles in it" -Ford
"Clearly Orange is a faggot and also a straight whore" -Steve
"Nobody can replace someone as worthless as Orange" -MinnieKing
"I used to think Orange is boring but now I think it's a thin veneer and she will stab someone with scissors someday" -Mizal
Elliot hears news that his aunt is dying. He has to trek through a forest haunted by his own memories in order to see her before she passes. There are two paths through the forest and two true endings. They are both clearly marked as 'epilogue.' The maturity level is probably a bit of an exaggeration but there's some material that is definitely mature in one of the paths.
Penthos, the Greek daimon of grief, begins destroying Seattle, forcing people to feel more grief than ever. There are three true endings, each clearly labeled 'epilogue.' This is my entry for the 2017 Chaos contest.
Warning: rated 7/8 for a reason. It's about the apocalypse, so naturally, there is gore. Not excessively detailed gore, but it is still present.
Nothing doesn't exist, but still he helps others and resists fate.
The goddess of an orchard has been alone with only trees for company for the last thousand years. Then one day, a little boy comes to her orchard. There is one true ending, you'll know when you find it because it says "true ending."
In a small Alaskan fishing town, Val lost everything.
I ran my hand along her porcelain skin
Stillness greeted my soft touch
I kissed her smooth and lovely neck
Cold fingers stuck in my clutch
I did not know her when she lived
But here she was in my arms
I sniffed her hair and touched her breast
Her body would meet no harm
If people knew my secret fantasies
They’d surely think me mental
But they just do not understand
I am always, always gentle
When the scientists at HappyCo created a one time injection that makes you feel nothing but happiness for the rest of your life, people lined up to get it. Unfortunately, the world soon found out that happy people aren't motivated to do much of anything and the global economy collapsed. There's no real estimate on how many people didn't get the mandatory injection but Mike, a serial killer in Texas, is determined to find as many of them as possible.

I never thought I'd survive the apocalypse. I'm shocked that I made it this far, honestly.

Thinking about starting? Maybe you should wait a bit. You don't want too much of a head start, right?

Belinda addressed the town, firm in her loyalty, "please be aware that King Charlie may not WANT to eat a werebadger. I certainly wouldn't, much too hairy. I understand that he must eat one of us and I am fine with that. Sacrifices must be made after all. I give my vote to Charlie, as I will vote for whoever he would most like to eat, even if that is me."

Belinda was ready. Finally a king worthy of the great castle that stands in Cyspool. Someone who could overtake that stupid shitty Cystia once and for all. "Yes Charlie, I will vote for you as king. Let's put Cyspool back on the map."

"I vote for Charlie, too" Belinda said.

Belinda sighed, "I have no bottles, Goody Briar. You are all welcome to search my property to your heart's content. Unlike certain lying vampires like Edward, I have nothing to hide."
