Link/rating (if it's posted somewhere): Genre/form: Drabble-ish? Romance is the genre, definitely. Length of text: 175 words! *woohoo* Did you or did you not follow the mood: I think so! Did something new come out of this: Most definitely. The flow was absolutely wonderful. I know it's short, but I think I wrote it in about a minute and a half. It came so easily to me. Did you like the end result: I think I really do! Would you do it again: Definitely!
Okay, Blaire did awesome. ^_^ But what about everyone else?
I am not rushing anyone, of course, but it's a quick thing, just in one sitting and there is no wordcount rule, so, whenever you have the time, chalengees, show that blank paper that you still got some ink left. :cad:

Link/rating (if it's posted somewhere): I'm just going to PM it to you. Genre/form: Drabble. Length of text: 231 words. Did you or did you not follow the mood: I believe I did. Did something new come out of this: Once I figure an HP couple to put to this drabble, it will! Did you like the end result: Mhm..I'm pretty please, though I know it could be better. Would you do it again: Yep! I'm finally happy to finish a challenge even if I did it with a drabble.
Zomg, Jessi, don't poke me. I was just about to. :P
I'll edit this in a few minutes. Sorry about the wait. *hides*
Edit:Priss: Emily Dickinson's 'Heart, we will forget him'
Heart, we will forget him, You and I, tonight! You must forget the warmth he gave, I will forget the light.
When you have done pray tell me, Then I, my thoughts, will dim. Haste! 'lest while you're lagging I may remember him!
Greedily she engorged without restraint, And knew not eating death;
-- Paradise Lost, John Milton
I have always wondered. What was it like for Eve, being tempted and banned from heaven? Is the snake the devil, or is Eve's poor judgment or killer curiosity at fault? Was God too harsh? Is knowledge worth the expulsion and the punishments (mainly death)? These are my questions. Go write yours. :P
Ali: Edgar Allan Poe:
A Dream Within a Dream
Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar Of a surf-tormented shore, And I hold within my hand Grains of the golden sand- How few! yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep, While I weep- while I weep! O God! can I not grasp Them with a tighter clasp? O God! can I not save One from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream?
I couldn't tell you why she felt that way, She felt it everyday. And I couldn't help her, I just watched her make the same mistakes again.
What's wrong, what's wrong now? Too many, too many problems. Don't know where she belongs, where she belongs. She wants to go home, but nobody's home. It's where she lies, broken inside. With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes. Broken inside.
Her feelings she hides. Her dreams she can't find. She's losing her mind. She's fallen behind. She can't find her place. She's losing her faith. She's fallen from grace. She's all over the place.
Link/rating (if it's posted somewhere): Genre/form: Romance, Drabble Length of text: 391 words Did you or did you not follow the mood: I did, mostly. ^_^ Did something new come out of this: The poem actually brought out a plot bunny I was always thinking about but never acted on. Did you like the end result: Yes, could've been longer and more detailed I suppose, but that would take two sittings. :P Would you do it again: Of course. :D
PMing it you right now.
