That Damn Shadow "How's my apartment? I'm enjoying it. I guess. The view is nice, but just too many weird things are happening. Well, for one, the walls never remain clean for long. No matter how often I scrub and clean, the paint on the walls just darkens somehow. Into this darker, grimier color. The rooms look as if they haven't been touched for years. I can drag a washcloth across the walls until my skin turns raw, and the walls won't look any better for it. Painting doesn't help either. Really though, everything in the apartment just keeps going wrong at this point.That Damn Shadow by a-dehn
"You know, little things like the walls and how the water tastes (disgusting, I can only drink from bottles now) and the venting systemwhich my super refuses to look at. I'm really getting stressed out from all of it. My sister came over the other day and actually told me there was nothing wrong with the apa
+SP+ BridesJenny wasn't happy with me at all when she woke up. I'm pretty sure that if I hadn't tied her down she would have clawed my eyes out of my skull. Under the ropes she was wriggling like her golden fish that time I knocked it out of its fish house. After a few hours she had settled from exhaustion, but she still had her eyebrows tensed into that furry v-shape. As usual it made me feel a little bit ill to look at.+SP+ Brides by BibleOfDOOM
I didn't dare remove her gag; it was ridiculous enough how often the crew looked back to give me looks. They hadn't liked how I had talked when they arrived, but I was one of them. It wasn't unheard of for foreign brides to have their tongue removed. Every now and then I spied a flinch as some of the maintenance crew went past.
You could hardly blame them, I must admit; we both probably looked downright disgusting.
It had been early so she was still wearing the undergarments that she had been exhibiting last night. They were strange things, a lot unlike the ones she had been wea

You look like you slept well.
His voice was honey: sweet, and lure to the unwary. But I wasn't a fly; I refused to take his bait. I smiled, grudgingly. And waited.
Your hair is a mess...
There. I knew it was coming. The first of what was likely to be many criticisms for the day. At least He'd started small.
...and your tie isn't straight.
So what? I thought, but automatically glanced into the mirror to check. He stared back at me, His eyes bright despite being sunk deep in shadowed flesh. With that one little doubt, He'd won. He knew it, and I knew it. I sighed and adjusted my tie.
He was my reflection, my shadow, but somehow I couldn't bring myself to think of Him as me. I was still young only just past thirty and I still had my whole future ahead of me. Or so I thought. But He sure He dressed like me, but we were nothing the same. While I was a little soft around the middle, He was corpulent
Don't Want to Go HomeDamn, it was hot. If there was a kind and loving God, He would know that there had never been, nor would there ever be any good reason for it to be this damned hotespecially when you threw in the humidity. The heat was a physical thing, clinging to the back of your throat as you breathed, bowing your shoulders under its might. The sweat it caused was not the slick, clean thing of hard work or exercise, but something that slithered over your skin, smothering you like a coat of rancid oil. The second you stepped out of your front door, you could feel it as you passed over the barrier and entered the heat. Made you want to turn right back around and take a shower to wash it off. I had air conditioning at my house, but that would mean I had to go home.Don't Want to Go Home by mvtk42
There was a beverage in front of mesome iced, caffeinated thing; I wasn't paying attention when the barrista rattled off the complicated name of whatever "something cold" translated to in Starbucksbut I'd mostly forg
+SP+ LettersThe most recent addition to the collection featured a white shirt with that rabbit Blink 182 was so fond of and a sign that read "Marry me Tom". Anyone else could barely tell it was her with that flushed colour and sweat-wet hair, but Trevor could tell instantlythe smile gave her away. She always had that same smilethe one that made her freckles out of her cheek and her braces sparkle (she insisted that they'd be gone by the time she came back not that he cared).+SP+ Letters by BibleOfDOOM
His hands trembled as he reached to touch her tiny face. He imagined that it was her hair underneath his fingertip, not just ink. The dark-blonde ran from the page and onto his fingertips; Trevor was unsure whether or not that it was his own sweating hands or the rain from this morning that created the effect. Maybe someone forgot to empty something before throwing it in the bin? It would explain the yellow stain in the corner. She was dripping and running in other placesher eyes, her skin, th

|It is Chris Cornell's mouth from a bootleg cd of a Soundgarden concert from 1993 (or 1989 or 1991, there's no telling with those things). The picture was stolen long before the internet existed so I think we can allow it to be grandfathered in as the group icon without too much static.|
Scream is the name of his most recent solo album, one co-produced with Timbaland. Old school Soundgarden fans still living in 1992 wrapped in their old flannel HATED this album because it wasn't like his old stuff. He took a chance and went in a new direction. That is what inspired the name of this group -- trying something totally new or something that might go against what you've been doing for years CAN be a good thing with good results. Seeing as the album is absolutely fantastic, I felt it was only right to see if that concept would apply here as well.
