LPC Writing Event SubmissionLiterary Publication's Winter Writing Event
The beach looked strange today. It was white, pure white. It was snowing. It was empty. It was peaceful and rare.
Elaine walks out of the jungle just bfore the sun set with reds, yellows, pinks, and oranges. There's a jungle behind the beach surrounded by vibrantly olored flowers and tall trees. The ocean s calm and there are no waves and it's quiet nothing is happening. It's peaceful. She looks around to see if there are any ships around, it's ever quiet like this. She moves herself closer to the ocean and got on her knees in the sand. She sat there looking up at the beautiful sky and let the water splash onto her body. As she sits there, she suddenly feels something nudging her kneecaps. She quickly looks down and sees a young turtle The makes her smile, this means the peace right now is real.
1.) Elaine is a tan
Please Don't Forget Me I creaked the door open and looked in to see my best friend sitting at his computer typing his life away on his stupid blog he started 3 months ago. I walked in and looked down at him. "Can I ask you a question, Ben?" I plopped down onto his bed and looked at him waiting for his response. We've been living together as friends for almost 3 years now, ever since our families kicked us out. Recently, however, he's changed and not for the better.
"I guess, Annette," Ben responded with a sigh. I nearly choked when he called me "Annette". I've always hated being called Annette. It sounded old and fancy which is the complete opposite of me so I refused to be called by it. My teachers and principals all called me Ann. My friends and acquaintances call me Ana. Only my grandmother and boss call me Annette! My mother doesn't even call me Annette, unless I'm in a good amount of trouble so, I would never expect my best friend who has stuck by me forever to call
A Day Of PeaceIt's almost that day
The day my family works
The day we tell stories
Just like you'd expect daily
All day it smells amazing
It smells like food
turkey, string beans, mac-n-cheese...
You know...like home
And it sounds like family
My sister singing
My nephew screaming
Music blaring...no one fighting
All we see are each other
Each other smiling
Each other enjoying themselves
No one wants to leave
We all join in the feast
No one eats everything
But every plate is full
Everyone can be pleased
Everyone is happy
Everyone gets along
Everyone has fun
Everyone's heart is here
Only on this day
This one day
I can achieve
A day of peace
Thank YouYou know
It's almost Thanksgiving
Time to be grateful
Apparently people envy me
If you're one of them
I'm thankful for you
You see something I can't
You keep trying to show me
Thank you for trying
People say I'm lucky
I'm not dying
I have a family
And they love me
If they somehow read this
I'm thankful for you
You do everything
Just to make my life better
Thank you for caring
I was called heartless once
Since I don't cry at many things
My tears tend turn to ink
So I write
If you read what I write
Thank you for letting me cry
Thank you for listening
Thank you for encouraging me
Thanks for not letting me give up
Can't I Just Be Happy?I know I barely have friends
I know I may be forever alone
I know I don't do much
But can you just leave it alone?
I know I'm no athlete
I know I'm no socialite
I know it seems weird
But I think it's alright
I know you disagree
I know you expect more
I know you imagined different
I'm sorry I'm such a bore
I know you mean well
I know you mean no harm
I know you want the best
But I see no charm
I'm fine with 3 friends
I don't need parties
I usually enjoy solitude
But not when you remind me
I need more friends
I need to go out
I need to get a life
That's what it's all about
Must you bring me down?
Must you make me feel less?
Must you crush my spirit?
Put a drain on my happiness?
I just want to live life
Somewhat care free
But I have this aching question
Why can't I just be happy?
Can't Be Deadly Without Dead"Aurora? Where am I?" Raina slowly opened her eyes and she was in a dark room. She attempted to sit up only to hit her head on what felt like a ceiling. "What the-?" She blurted out leaning back on her elbows.
"Hush Raina!" Gada's voice barked.
"Raina, this is the morgue." Aurora's voice put bluntly.
"Can you get me out?" Raina asked.
"Not as we are, but if you can just summon us, we can." Eiddwen's voice chimed in.
"How do I do that? You guys never explained that part!" Raina tried her best to keep her voice low.
"How do you think you do it?" Eiddwen challenged her little sister.
"A spell, I'm guessing." Raina said.
"See, nothing to explain. Just speak from your heart, Raina." Eiddwen replied.
"Okay, here I go." Raina took a deep breath and laid back down.
"Vanity, greed, lust, gluttony...
Wrath, envy, sloth...lonely.
We represent what they hate
Which led us to our current fate."
The space around Raina began to glow as she continued the spell.
"They looked for reason
It's TimeRaina slowly rises from bed and walks towards the window. The room begins to slowly grow brighter as the sun begins to rise and Raina moves to the center of the room. Her sisters' spirits begin to arrive in their usual voice form.
Vashti: Are you ready, Raina?
Raina: (nerously) As ready as I'm going to get.
Eiddwen: Don't be so worried, Aurora knows what she's doing and we'll be observing the whole time.
(Raina thinks about it and finally calms down)
Edana: Okay, now Raina is on board. Aurora, it's time!
(Aurora's spirit quickly overtakes Raina's body and it collapses onto the floor. Raina's body soon grows cold as her heart begins to slow. After the sun rises Alexander enters and rushes over to inspect her body.)
Alexander: (slightly worried) Raina, it's time to eat. (he begins to shake her seemingly lifeless body) Raina! Wake up!
(Alexander reaches for Raina's wrist and Aurora quick
Can't Go BackRaina lays sleeping on her cot in her now pitch black room. There is only a little more than a day left until Halloween. Her sisters' spirits in the form of voices await by her bedside.
Vashti: (whispering) Little Sister
Eiddwen: Sweetie, wake up.
Edana: (Growing inpatient) Raina!
Aurora: No point in getting angry with her.
Edana: (In a slightly calmer tone) Sorry, but we're not gonna wake her up by whispering!
Lehava: Let me try something. (Lehava sends a breeze over Raina's body pulling off her blanket and sending a chill through a body)
Raina's body twists and turns. She faces up and her eyes shoot open she then sits up and looks around in terror.
Aurora: It's just us, Raina.
Raina: (groggily) What do you want?
Esmeralda: We wanted to make sure you weren't gonna back out.
Gada: We also want to make sure you
You Die Last"What's your name, miss?" I asked the girl staring at me from her rickety bed.
"Stop conversing with it, Alexander." I really hated how he referred to everyone here as an object. I'll admit, they weren't the most appealing of people, but they had such fascinating stories.
"I'll stop talking to her when you stop acting like she's not a human being."
"You may have a point about the other patients, but for this one, she is nowhere near human. No one in her family was either." I sighed accepting the fact that my father will never learn. I looked back at the girl only to see her give me a Cheshire Cat like smile. It made my heart skip a beat. I looked back to the door to see that my father had left, I figured I should also go and turned to leave.
"You're going to be just like him." I heard her say causing me to stop in my steps. "A ring leader and a monster who only destroys." Her voice got louder with every word.
"A monster? My father is a protector of people.
PromiseIt’s funny how life works, the way it can turn on a dime and completely change in the blink of an eye. I’m not sure where I’d be standing right now if I had turned left instead of right, what I’d be thinking or feeling if you had chosen down instead of up. I’ve never been sure of fate, of the concept that there is a plan or a reason for everything. It always seemed too inhibited that way, like I didn’t have a choice in where my life went. The closest I ever came to really buying fate was the idea that we are bound to come to certain crossroads and to make certain decisions in life, but that each decision was ours to make and based upon that decision we would come to another crossroad. I came to one of those decisions the first time I ever laid my eyes on you.
I remember it, very clearly. I remember where you were standing, I can sort of remember what you were wearing. Things were different then and I didn

Hello to everyone who reads this` ^//^
This is my deviation for the giveaway from Okadagiri` o//v//o
This lovely and generous person is giving away a tablet`!
Well in this deviation I will try to give my reason why I deserve a tablet` .//v//.
For me it’s hard to explain why I want a tablet.
I thought about this seriously and came up with two questions:
1: “Will you make a big wish of yours come true if you had the time, effort and motivation?”
2: “Will you rather make a wish with the possibilty that it won’t come true because you’re rushing it or make a wish come true but with the possibility it will actually come true but it will take a life time to happen ?”
I thought about it and my answer would be a big ‘ Yes! Also I will choose to make a wish come true even if it will take me a lifetime to finish it!’.
My big wish is to visualise a story which I’ve been dreaming about since my childhood. This story have help

30 Days, 30 Letters: Days 22, Letters 22A letter to someone that I wish I could give a second chance.
December 1, 2013
The letter hates me. I don't what to take about her. Even if I would want to give her a second chance because I don't what it to happen again. Sooooo, ya.
A tablet would be nice.Everyday I roam deviantart, hoping one day my art can be as good as other peoples. I watch/stalked many amazing artists, and stare at their art for hours. I only have access to a mouse, and after many failed attempts, you could say I have simply given up on art. I love drawing, even though it was mostly a hobby. I have many friends who are just like the people here on dA, some even have an account! But everyday I see their art, and I realize that could be me. I could be improving, if I had that extra boost.
I do traditional drawings with some paper and a short pencil. I have multi-colored markers, but they do not have the variety that a computer does. I try everyday, but fail in my heart, knowing this art does not compare to other digital pieces. I need the access to support; a tablet.
I could go on and on about how a tablet would be amazing, fantastic, and absolutely incredible (and don't get me wrong, it would be) but those would just be empty words that would not make your decision
Open Letter to an Anonymous RecipientTo Whom It May Concern:
Please pardon the excessively vague title and heading of this letter. It is, of course, to protect your identity from the hunger of the beast we know as the Internet. This is because I would like someone to witness what I'm writing here and now and to make sure I keep everything as relevant as possible (excluding, of course, this introductory paragraph).
We've known each other for upwards of six years at this point, each year a vivid memory. The first memory that comes to my mind is not one that we share in person. Rather, five years after your departure, I finally worked up the nerve to confess that I had harbored an insatiable infatutaion. At this point, I'd already realized that a relationship between us was impossible and moved on, yet I still could not put it to rest. I had thought that the reason lay in my inaction, that if I laid my heart bare, then I could finally rest. Sadly, this was not to be. When you responded that you honestly had no idea of my emo
30 Days, 30 Letters: Days 25, Letters 25A Letter to the person you know is going throughout the worst of times.
December 3, 2013
I don't think to what me to talk much about you life. So, let just say we all hate middle school and I can't what until high school and happiness. I CAN' WAIT UNILT HIGH SCHOOL.
P.S. I know a lot of my friend are having a hard time but I think its getting better.
Illumina's Christmas letter to SantaDear Santa,
I'm so happy that Christmas is near! But you know what? I really wish I had a pretty companion cube dress.
Maybe you can send one to me when its Christmas, please? My mommy and daddy promised that you would
come to Aperture with toys and gifts for all the nice girls and boys. I've been a really good girl this year, and
I really wish I could have a companion cube dress so I can wear it when I play with my cubes.
If you come to Aperture this year, I will leave some cookies and milk for you on the table so you can have a
tasty snack while you visit Aperture to send me presents. Most importantly, I love you a lot, Santa. Please
do come to Aperture for the best Christmas ever! Please come! Please!
Letter to StressDear Stress,
I understand that no one likes being ignored, or rejected, or excluded. I know how it feels to be all of those things, everyone does. However, you have to understand something as well, not everyone is going to like you. Especially because whenever you're around you always bring your very negative friends, Anger, Melancholy, and/or Frustration! All they ever do is make everyone's lives miserable! This makes people not like you.
Also, not to be mean or anything, but you're not very fun either. You always give people headaches and make them unwillingly hang out with Exhaustion. Me especially. Exhausted stays around so long that everything gets messed up, but you never seem to take the hint and just intrude more! I need my space from you! If you don't change your ways soon...I don't know what I'd do.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that, I think I'm better off without you. I think you're better off with someone else, anyone else. In all honesty, I don't care what you d
a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
Keep in Touch!
