“Comedy Thursdays” Part 1: A Cook in the Land of Dreams

  Hi! I am Elijah and I am exhausted! It all started a few months ago, when I was hired by none other than Queen Fairytale, the monarch of the Land of Dreams.

“Mercy”

The sun was annoying her. The heat was annoying her. The birds singing? Disgusting. The happy couples, strolling in the park in blissful ignorance? She wished them all to go to hell. Everything was annoying her. At any other time, she would've attributed her anger to trivial things, but not today. Today, her anger was … Continue reading “Mercy”

“The Legend” (first attempt at fanfiction)

  He was disgusted with everything. He was so bored, that he wanted to just pour gasoline over everything and set it ablaze, Joker-style. Why? Well...

He had really hoped that moving away from the city would bring him the peace he … Continue reading “The Legend” (first attempt at fanfiction)

150 pieces of candy

Let us picture happiness as a bag full of things. It can be anything, really. I'll be using candy because a) I love candy and b) find your own thing!

“For them, who are there”

"It's been a while, hasn't it?" He was sitting on the somewhat moist ground. In front of him, two large tombstones. On each grave, an opened bottle of beer. He was gulping his, often toasting with the other two. Just like in their younger days. "I know, I know. It was the cheapest. What a … Continue reading “For them, who are there”

Μόλις το βιβλίο κλείσει.

Και ποια ήταν δηλαδή η καλή συνέχεια; Που ήταν αυτό το αναθεματισμένο το "ζήσαν αυτοί καλά"; Αηδίες. Τα πάντα ήταν τόσο, μα τόσο βαρετά. Το παλάτι, οι χοροί, οι πλούσιοι άνθρωποι, ακόμη κι αυτός ο άνδρας της... Ανάθεμα την ώρα που έφυγα από το δάσος, σκεφτόταν συνεχώς. Βλέπετε, αν και βασίλισσα, η καλή μας η … Continue reading Μόλις το βιβλίο κλείσει.

“If you are out there…”

Dear Alien, if you are out there, I'd like to ask you a few things. I must tell you, I'm not afraid of you. In fact, I'd like to meet you. To see if your skin is really green, if you actually have big black eyes, if you have antennae on your head. If you … Continue reading “If you are out there…”

Ο Ιδανικος σου κοσμος

«Δε περίμενα πως θα έφτανες ως εδώ.» Περπάτησε αργά προς το μέρος του, καρφώνοντας τον με ένα βλέμμα παγερό. Άφησε το μαχαίρι να γλιστρήσει από τα χέρια. Το φονικό αντικείμενο έπεσε με ένα σιγανό ήχο, καθώς πλησίαζε το θύμα. «Μη λες ψέματα. Εννοείται πως το περίμενες. Εσύ, ο Παντογνώστης Θεός… εννοείται πως το γνώριζες. Ή … Continue reading Ο Ιδανικος σου κοσμος
