:bulletorange: "I like creating beauty out of scary things." Grimes

:bulletorange: "That's the thing about zombies. They don't adapt and they don't think. Literally, you could have a zombie on one side of a chain link fence and you could be on the other side and they could be trying to get to you and six feet down could be an open door and they will not go through that door in the fence. That's why they're so scary." Max Brooks

Soulmates, Enemies, and Bruises (Contest Entry)    Advancements in telepathic technology proved that every human has a soulmate. When your mind is opened to the presence of thoughts which are not your own, it initially overloads. The reach of your mind expands to cover the whole Earth. Everything outside your own head sounds like gibberish, until you find that one voice beside your own which you can understand. For every person, there is someone perfectly compatible. A profound connection is formed between your souls and bodies; even if there is half the world between you.
 
    I haven't had the experience myself, I don't want to be telepathic. I only know what I've read about it. And trust me, the Internet is clogged with romantic anecdotes detailing the 'manmade evolution.' 
    I'm from the first generation with access to mind modifications. I still remember when dating websites were your best chance at finding love. Now people upgrade their own brains to find 'the one.' No

The Trouble with TwoMaria hummed softly as she waited for her boyfriend to pick her up.
One of her two boyfriends.
She applied a bright red lipstick. It was hard to find true love when you invested in one man for so long, she’d reasoned with herself. Dark gray eyeshadow. You could go and waste ten years of your life, just for him to never propose. Or worse, leave you at the alter. She’d seen it before. Eyeliner. It was hard to juggle two guys at once, but no more than it was to juggle work and a social life. Mascara. Besides, both were great guys, and very dedicated to her, but they also both had their flaws.
Straightening out her dress, she stood, and noticed a painless bruise that had suddenly developed on her lower leg. Maria cursed, and went digging through her closet for a longer dress. There weren’t many - she wasn’t a very modest woman.
That was the problem she had with her two boyfriends. Maria had met them around the same time, and when she’d noticed the bruises and

Just a SnackKaye was attempting to cut a watermelon while holding it down like it was a savage beast that needed to be subdued. Quickly losing his patience and his hunger growing by the second, he picked up the pace as he sawed through the fruit in hopes to eventually reach the sweet nectar within. The knife slipped through the husk and scraped his hand. He screamed and released everything from his grasp. He examined his hand to find a small gash that was oozing a droplet of blood. He cursed to himself as he tended to his wound. Glancing at the thick green shell, he suddenly had an idea. He snatched a meat hammer from a utensil drawer and aimed it over the melon. He drew back and smashed it with full force. In the midst of the explosion, a sizable chunk of it smacked him square in the face and he stumbled back. He shook his head and collected his prize to feast on.
Idna, though neither her nor Kaye knew of their fate, who had stuck together through thick and thin, was in the middle of reading a bo

Hey, I'm a longtime writer who's just recently gotten into professional editing- what would the etiquette be for offering my services to the group?

This group doesn't really cater to editors/proofreaders etc, but you could try GrammarNaziCritiques or ProjectComment or Adopt-A-Writer

As Terry Pratchett's Death would say in this sort of situation where one receives the chance to have their work added to a gallery and read while pondering several ways to express gratefulness , death having no feelings except thinking cats are nice when he is not reaping souls thanks to the assassin's guild and wayward wizards, he would state the following phrase "thank you for the fave" . After a short pause he would wonder if that was the correct thing to say and would vanish. so Thanks! yeah XDDDDDDDDDD

I think they are up for free on sacredtexts or on pdf or kindle, but having the book is better.
Im up to book 10. I loved the movies staring Christopher lee as Death ( I cant read Pratchett's Death lines
without doing Lee's deep booming voice XD ). Death says the only thing he likes and or
desires having no emotions like we do is cats, Terry Pratchett wrote a book about Cat anectdotes and
also a whole Discoworld book on cats AND a co written novel with Neil Gaiman about the end of the world
and Death is in it. atm u can see Wyrd Sisters, the color of magic, music of the soul, hog father and
one starring Samwise aka The goonies kid as "the Tourist", Death cameos in each one, Hog father being a 4 part movie series
f you wanna give it a go then pick up a book on a free day. I could never touch Pratchett's funny in a million years!!!!
