  2. Fling
    Swish
    And hit
    I’m in the mood for melodies
    Dancing around real campfires, in crackling woods
    With tambourines and bells to make it better
    Waking up to swordfights, clashing in practice
    Knowing- yes, that’s it, I’d like to know
    That our happiness is justified, and we’re going to win

  6. Flying cannonballs all over the No Man’s Land and making future amputees, who can’t return to their wives. Also, they hurt a lot when they hit. Looks like fun.

  7. Peas. Green and gooey crushed peas. All over him as he catapults them across the room at his father. His father, a beautiful mess. Disheveled hair, grey t shirt with bits of peas on them, and boxers. They both smile the same mischievous smile as I walk in on the scene. How could I be mad when all I can see is a perfect family.

  8. like being thrown out of a plane with no strings, no chute
    or left stranded in a maze without a map or a route

  10. Catapults are primitive siege weapons designed to throw boulders or clusters of rocks over a good distance. However, they are relatively inaccurate and rather ineffective against all but the lightest defenses. Better used as a terror weapon.

  13. We had been catapulted into the unknown. Propelled into the murky abyss. Coiled and sprung like the bottom of a mattress to the dark, thick cushions of the impossible. We had landed feet first, our heels aching from the impact, and looked around, uncertain of where we were and how we had gotten there.

    But then Malcolm pointed out that we had been literally catapulted into an unknown space.

  14. I catapulted forward with the head of the sun rising up my neck. It couldn’t be done they said. It shouldn’t be done ever but I went forward without a second thought. What was I doing? Was this madness? I couldn’t decide. I looked him in the eye. My heart kept beating. I said it. Oh crap.

    By J on 05.20.2013

  25. His desire to catapult out of a life of fear and into one that led him to, what he believed, was his personal desitiny was overwhelming. Steve wasn’t the type of man who ever told people what he wanted or why. He put his head down and moved forward. Why now? Why does he find himself at the half way mark with nothing “real” to his name?

  30. That’s a trebuchet, he said, smirking at both her and the screen simultaneously. Not a catapult. Geez. As if her lack of knowledge about medieval weaponry somehow made her less intelligent, less desirable, less of a partner. You know what? She asked as the movie played on, “Fuck you and your trebuchet.”

  33. Their war cries were punctuated by the heavy thuds of rocks being thrown against our walls. The catapults had arrived. But this was not the end, right? I looked to our leader, her armor shining, despite being streaked with blood, and dented by weaponry. She stood on the walls, proud and strong, despite how they were likely to crumble under the assault of stone. It was in that moment that I caught a glimpse of her expression; despair.

  34. Men and ash and soot and lives come crashing around me. I stoop up the heavy weight, and load it into the allocated bowl. Routine. Over and over. Fire! It’s gone now, over the wall, gone to cause havoc on the other side.

  38. It wasn’t until so many years later that I finally discerned what it was behind that intense emerald haze of his iris; They were dreams, stale dreams. Dreams that must have shone in the back of his mind like an orb of light in a cavern of diamonds; ideas and imaginations that must have, long ago, when he still had the ambitions of a naïveté, brought alight his eyes with excitement of incomprehensible beauty that only he could see in the deepest caverns of his psyche, that drove him feverishly.

    And, at one point, they were extinguished – shattered by a self-loathing and nervousness that he could never overcome to achieve his hidden destiny. He was incredibly delicate (he had never touched a woman as long as I had known him), and the inner tortures of his low self-esteem must have kept him awake countless nights. Unable to attack the future with the voracity his wild wantings demanded, they crumbled with time beneath the pressure he put onto himself, and with them went out the godspark that had once likened his gaze to a lighthouse rotation.

    Out of the ashes of his inner empire, so meticulously recreated again and again until its self immolation, rose the wisdom of ancients. A type of stoic, if not harsh, understanding of the pitiful world he had been placed in that could not sustain his dreams just as much as he couldn’t sustain himself long enough to see them through. I met him when those jewels he had been blessed with were no longer alight with the voracious ember of a sultans crown, but were dull – dull with an age of someone millenia older than he, with a sagacity born of a lifetime of self-imposed disappointment.

  39. the insult catapulted into a somersault that flew the across the room and landed square between your eyes, knocking you out for a perfect 10. And while you lay unconscious, the little birdies that circled your head argued heatedly over the meaningless of flying round and round in circles.
