A Work of Historical Fiction
These days people don't fully comprehend how important clothes really are. Clothes in them selves have become merely cloth to too many people. Perhaps the most overlooked and disrespected piece of clothing today is the sock. Socks are not just devices of warmth and comfort or hilarity in it's purest form, as most people believe; no, they are much more. Socks teach us lessons you could not begin to comprehend until the sock teaches them to you itself. Considering that it is very unlikely a sock will actually talk to you, I'll attempt to convey the message instead. To understand the sock is to understan

It was a cold winter night when it all began. A chilly American was wrapped up tight in his sweater, his hands covered in wool-lined leather gloves and his neck in a thick flag-print scarf, made from yarn. It had been his Christmas present last year, for times such as this when he had to venture out to a late night diner, snagging some food before he turned in for the evening.
These days were stressful. Ever since the war had ended, Russia was a hot button for him. They were so close geographically and yet as people, so far. He was in the allies at one point but in the end, his statements had all been true. He was loyal to himself, not any o
VadhaI have seen two blossomings of the Kurinci flower and twenty-four black monsoons since Kalinga Magha first landed on the shore of our island Kingdom. He arrived as the rainy season ended greenery erupting from every hollow, pepper vines snaking up every tree. Cranes and peacocks drank from the bowls of mangrove roots, elephants rolled and snorted in watering holes, and the mists were slinking back to stalk the lush valleys of the Hill Country.Vadha3 years ago in Historical More Like This
The thousands of soldiers Magha brought with him trudged for days through our country's red mud, sinking in potholes and cursing their gods in all the languages of the mainland. Farmers knee-dee

I hate playing with dinosaurs. Common sense would dictate that they would be excellent poker players, as they are incapable of facial expression. I've deduced that when they lunge at you and eat your face, they're displeased, but I don't know if you could call that a facial expression per se. It's like Wild West movies where everybody pulls out a six-shooter, except instead of a gun, it's a dinosaur, and instead of being shot, your face gets eaten. However, I digress. My original point was that dinosaurs should be good at poker, and yet this is simply not the case. Take, for example, a game I held earlier this very evening.

It was always three days, wasn't it?
Alfred had waited three days and yet nothing. The prickly stubble began to grow like patches of scratchy weeds on his face, and his eyes were bloodshot and dreary. He had continued to come into the briefing room, half-listen to the days news and come home at night to a frosty beer from his empty refrigerator. All the while, the words that dropped from his mouth were cold and unfeeling. Ever since the night, he had felt a callus grow over his soul that detached his usually energetic zest from him. Every day was like a boring sitcom without a laugh track. He watched himself move from location t

America's hand stood poised over the phone, his blue eyes fixated on it's off-white color. His eyes blurred and then focused, in and out, using his glasses as aid. In the end, he drew his hand back from the object and placed both of them in his lap, his bottom positioned on the end of his king-sized bed. He frowned, looking aimlessly among the carpeting in his bedroom, his mind wandering a thousand miles away from his head, into a less secure location.
It had been two days since he had seen Russia last. Negotiations weren't going well, and the White Houses eye was fixated on him, watching him carefully. He, too, watched. Every day he showed

Magic can happen at any time of day, week, month, year, but our type of magic always seemed to occur by night. Dancing on a bridge, under the spotlight of a street lamp, in the middle of the highway. We would sort of just groove on those neatly painted white lines on the asphalt. We'd weave in and out of them, spinning, leaping, rocking. True artists, great artists, we'd t
ChernobylChernobyl7 years ago in Historical More Like This
The placid lake, so tranquil and solemn, hides a horror that seeps through cracks. Beyond the still waters and the blades of grass lies a box: a concrete sarcophagus, supposed to subdue her. No one can subdue her. Once a queen, now a fiend, she lurks in the shadows, in the unseen. Her cloak is intangibility itself. Her crown long tarnished, lies broken, beyond the placid lagoon. Like an invisible fog, she seeps through the cracks of her sepulcher, taking with her the horrors that lie inside. She then solidifies into the monster she has become. She passes through the pale malachite grass, and even stoops down too look at the wormwood a while.

My family found it interesting that this year my twentieth birthday coincided with the rising of our Lord. I didnt really think much of it. Perhaps I should have been somewhat proud of the similarity, but it wasnt exactly the most pressing issue on my mind. Father got me a present this year, just like he said he would. He spent nearly all of his money to buy me a Winchester 1897 12-gauge shotgun that was smuggled into the country.
It was hard to come by ever since those damned Brits put up the imported weapons ban. But Father didnt want me to be stuck with some German piece of junk
If Anne Frank SurvivedThe tired face is raised towards us, and the hollow eyes beg us to take the numbers away from her skin. But we cant. They wont go. They are there for eternity. There is a glow that surrounds her, unmistakably bright against the grey pallor of her fading self. One would imagine it came from the window that outlined her frail frame. But it surrounds her, a sunlight beam so strong it dries her salty tears from the inside out. The glow is warm, it warms her heart and attempts to touch her soul. But her skin remains cold, proving for her that its what is on the outside that counts.If Anne Frank Survived4 years ago in Historical More Like This

It was dark in the castle, the torches had been extinguished as expected at this late hour. They only light came from the glint of an assassin guard's sword, shining silver through the murky darkness and the flash of their brown eyes, intent on rooting out an intruder who would dare set their feet in this place, this place that belonged to them.The Clearing: AltMal4 years ago in Historical More Like This

Under the terms of my internship to Dr. Mengele, I will recount my and my benefactor's actions during my stay here at Auschwitz camp.
I arrived at the camp via train just under three days ago, and was met at the stops by Mengele himself. He was watching the bedraggled group of prisoners being offloaded, like cattle, onto the platform.
"Sir, reporting for duty to Führer." I said, pulling off a crisp salute, but Mengele was leaning against a column and smoking a roll-up, and he didn't notice. I stepped up beside him and watched the Jews and Gypsies being sorted into two lines.

APH: The Death of Kievan RusThe anguished cries of fallen soldiers echoed across the battlefield, mingling with the noise of skittish horses and whizzing arrows. One lone soldier, however, seemed to be holding her own against the odds. She hacked and slashed as they came at her, her long blonde hair whipping about like a white rope. It didn't seem to matter how many she cut down; there was always another to replace.APH: The Death of Kievan Rus3 years ago in Historical More Like This

Złowrogie świsty tną powietrze, raz po raz. Wybuchy. Huk walących się kamienic starego miasta.
Nad głową pobrzmiewa złowrogi warkot motorów. Samoloty. Rżną z karabinów maszynowych bezbronne już miasto.
Na ulicach, pośród kłębów pyłu i kurzu, przewijają się szarozielone mundury. Równomierny stukot obcasów oficerek.

Pojedyncze krzyki mężczyzn. Zrozpaczone wrzaski kobiet. Płacz dzieci. 'Moi kochani '

But here, in his arms, was the one person who knew him well enough to know how much pain was in his heart. He inhaled the intoxicating scent of sampaguita in her thick, dark hair, and his body relaxed.

The girl held her breath, when she heard the steps, and was trying to ignore a buzzing fly, that was stubbornly tangling into her hair. Hidden behind a long red velvet curtain she couldn´t see what was going on in the room, and so she was listening to every sound very carefully. The steps were too heavy to belong to her elder sister, and they were soon gone.
The girl breathed again freely. She heard a far-away whoop, signaling that someone had just lost in this hide-and-seek. Then there was another moment, when the curtain moved a little, and small fingers grasped her skirt.

No matter how many times he saw it, Alfred could always appreciate the majesty that was this city in a small, subtle way. His eyes saw the purity and beauty in all things, but this was something different. A deep, humble feeling that made him feel like he was home some how. The weight of such a history filled his heart with pride and honor to be apart of, his sky blue eyes staring up at the sky as it shook a thin layer of powder on top of the buildings, like a bottle of baby powder.
It was cold, and he almost stuck out his tongue to taste some when a person shoved into his shoulder, bustling by him in some
