If you ever loved prose, if you ever believed in prose, it's time to share. Show your love and appreciation, say something positive-cheerful to/about prose.
Written by chainedinshadow

Thank you, Prose

What can I say? It's great to have a place you can go to, a place where you can write so others can read it, without being judged, criticized, mocked, or not taken seriously. 

Prose is amazing, and I love the opportunities it gives me to read and write, gain inspiration and inspire others.

Thanks so much for creating this site.

Chapter 6 of The End
Written by chainedinshadow

The End, Part 6

Maybe the universe is revolting against us,

As if to purge us all from this reality;

Perhaps like a phoenix rising up

From the ashes of a ruined world,

From ashes that formed of bones

And human minds and hearts

To create something new and better

That I will never live to see.

I should feel sad, but I don't;

I feel resigned to fate, so watch--

I'll join you soon.

Lonely vs Alone
Written by chainedinshadow

Lonely vs. Alone

The major difference between lonely and alone are that you can not be alone in a crowd of people, but you can be lonely surrounded by thousands.

Chapter 5 of The End
Written by chainedinshadow

The End, Part 5

But it was all lies, wasn't it?

Because you did leave me alone.

The day the Earth breathed its last breath,

Groaning and splitting open down the middle,

And hot lava pouring out from its molten core.

You died. I watched it happen, powerless to stop it.

It felt like my heart was ripping in half,

And my body was wracked with sobs.

What is the point of living anymore?

After all, with you gone, I have

Nothing left to lose.

Chapter 4 of The End
Written by chainedinshadow

The End, Part 4

Iridescent dust from a million shattered stars

Settled around us, choking and strangling.

Each moment seemed like an eternity,

Each day was an endless hell to me,

And it seemed like you and I were alone.

You were my lifeline, connected by a hand,

As the terror raged around us,

The looting, the killing, the burning.

Nightmares cloud my eyelids but

Just as you promised, 

I am never alone.

Tell us some quotes from one of your characters. Some backstory or a link to a story written with that character in it would be a nice addiction. Tag me!

Logan Robertson Quotes

"Yeah, you think that was something? Wait until you see my triple-spiral-dragon-twisted-looped-and-knotted-Turkish-Chinese-banana-split front flip. It's off the chain."

"What's the point of making my bed in the morning when I'm just going to unmake it tonight to get in bed?!"

"I mean, seriously, why does she call herself something stupid like 'The Intimidator'? Oh no, someone hide me! Here she comes and she is going to kill me!!!!!!"

"I would make a good weather man--I'm seldom right about anything."

"I see."

What is a good parent and what is a bad parent? My parents are told they are good, but they make me feel like I am worthless. Am I over judging them? Do they have the rights to make me feel this way? Do they have rights leave busies? I would like to know your opinion because everyone says I am wrong about them. Am I? Is it okay to hurt your child and make them fear for their own life when you attack them? Lets see your opinion. Tag me please. @Allyson
Written by chainedinshadow

For @Allyson

Dear Allyson,

It is never okay to hurt someone physically, emotionally, or mentally. 

Parents correct their children when they do something wrong. The dividing line between good parents and bad parents is this:

When good parents correct their children, they do it out of love, while bad parents do it out of anger or maliciousness. Also, good parents don't make their children fear for their life and even when they spank their child, they don't leave bruises.

I don't think you're judging them wrong, either. Good parents tell their children they love them, and make them feel worth something, because they are. 

No matter what your parents tell you, you are not worthless. Everyone has a purpose, and everyone is equally loved by God. No one has the right to tell you otherwise.

Allyson, I know this is really hard for you, and I'm praying for you. I think it would be wise to talk to someone you really, really trust about what's going on, like your grandmother or another relative. They can really help you through these hard times. Just hang in there with everything you've got, and know that people care about you and are praying for.

Love from your friend,

@Chainedinshadow

Chapter 3 of The End
Written by chainedinshadow

The End, Part 3

I remember when you held my hand,

As the lights went out one by one,

And when you told me it'd be okay,

As burning rivers of lava cascaded,

Engulfing all who stood in their way.

And how you covered my ears

From the cries of the dying,

While drying my tears of terror.

And you told me not to worry,

That you'd never let me

Be alone.

Chapter 2 of The End
Written by chainedinshadow

The End, Part 2

The always present darkness hangs over us,

And burning embers form the ground,

While ash creates the sky above.

We count the falling stars at night,

And the smoke from a million fires

Burning on the horizon wraps around us.

They told us it would be okay,

But I know this is the end.

Most of us will not survive,

But what worries me most

Is if we will.

It was an accident. I swear.
Written by chainedinshadow

It Was An Accident!

It was an accident; I swear! I don't go around shoving people into walls to create holes in them. I promise! Besides, it's only happened once.

I was only ten or eleven, you know, and I was just being a kid. So was my sister. And like all little kids do, we were rough-housing, and shoving each other, spinning in circles...

And then I pushed her backward. She fell into the wall.

She stepped away from the wall...

And there was a hole punched into it in the shape of her back.

I totally freaked out--crying, guilt, despair, depression, thoughts of running and hiding, you name it, I had it.

So yes, I was like, grounded for the rest of my life with no computer privileges, and I was practically glued to my parents' sides, not to mention the $75 I had to pay to have a friend replace the section of the wall.

But it was an accident! I swear!
