    He was a savage. There was no other word for it. I shoved him away from me. Well, that’s what my brain was saying. My body, however, from frozen, and I found myself unable to carry out the simplest of actions. Mind racing, limbs locked, I could not even scream as I knew I should.

  • magdelina commented on the post, silo 5 years, 6 months ago

    The Silo. Right on the border of US and Canada. As a kid it was always hilarious to sit there, eating ice cream, and gesture casually across the river. “Hey, there’s Canada!” we’d always say, as if we had just noticed it but it was no big deal. But as kids, foreign countries, even Canada, were always interesting.

    “That is so distressing,” she said, averting her eyes form the scene. Her companion, however, could not take his eyes away. They would not budge. It is interesting that two people could have such opposite reactions to the same scene.

    It was all worthwhile in the end. Right? Because it had to be. There was no other option. Each step I took, each thought I though, each moment I continued breathing, it was all worth it. Because now I’m here, and I’m still breathing, after all this time. Even if I’m the only one. I’m still here.

  • magdelina commented on the post, amount 6 years, 1 month ago

    All of this amounts to — what? A lot of wishes and desires and goals but nothing tangible, nothing I could count. I didn’t know how much I had. I didn’t know how much I could lose. But I wanted more.

    The Hunger Games.
    Games aren’t always fun. Like in gym class when you play a game but gym class sucks.
    Or, you know what? Like in math class when you play a game but math class sucks and the suckiness of math class doesn’t override the “fun” of the game.
    I like board games. My brother doesn’t. That’s annoying.

  • magdelina commented on the post, due 6 years, 2 months ago

    The rent was due tomorrow. Shit. I had completely forgotten in the midst of everything that was going on. My mind raced through my options. I could ask the landlord for an extension, but I didn’t particularly want to deal with his anger right now. I could ask my parents for money, but I always hated borrowing from them. It felt like they were…[Read more]

    I got detention when I was in fourth grade relatively frequently. That might be a surprise, since I was an A student throughout high school who was never in trouble with the authorities. But in fourth grade, I […]

    A modem is a computer thingy, right? Oh gosh, I hardly know. I’m not very good at computer things. Internet things I’m decent at, and I have technological common sense that the older generation seems to lack, but […]

    The lightning scar on his forehead was a mark of his mother’s undying love for him and the power that that love continues to have throughout his entire life. We’ll never forget that lightning bolt scar, Harry, or our love for you. It’s real for us. The Weapon we have is love.

  • magdelina commented on the post, platinum 7 years, 2 months ago

    Platinum is a metal that sounds really exciting, like it’s in a superhero story or something, but I honestly have no idea what it’s made of, or if it’s an element, or if it does anything special, or if it’s expensive, or anything like that. Just goes to show that a word can be sort […]

  • The centerpiece of the Christmas table was one of those wooden sculptures that had candles on top, and the candles someone made use of physics and made the whole thing spin. When the lights were turned off, the shadows of the candles created intricate designs on the walls and ceiling.

  • magdelina commented on the post, obey 7 years, 2 months ago

    One wonders whether one ought to obey laws simply to obey laws. What about unjust laws? Must they be followed? Are rules to be followed for rules’ own sake? Martin Luther King Jr would disagree with that. Socrates would agree. This is just my philosophy class coming out.

    The young boy slouched in his chair, looking grumpy. THe pencil in his hand was tapping against the desk impatiently as he stared blankly at the piece of paper in front of him. The students around his scribbled furiously, but he hardly moved, didn’t seem to care at all. He sighed and finally leaned his […]

    The president of the United States is a very powerful man. Although I don’t want to be discriminatory and exclude women, historically, it’s always been a man. Which is a damn shame if you ask me. Girl power! Wow.

  • magdelina commented on the post, century 8 years, 8 months ago

    One hundred years had passed since the biggest war of the world. Llamas vs. Alpacas. I mean, alpacas, the cousins of the llamas, just never got as much attention, and they didn’t think that was fair at all. I don’t really blame them.

    Popped collars are so cool. Especially, like, double popped collars. I mean really. It makes people respect you so much more and you become so much more likeable. Don’t you think? I mean, it’s the most important addition to any wardrobe.

    Take a bow
    There was a beautiful bow in the little girl’s hair. It was the picture of innocence.

    The band bowed to the rabid applause of ten thousand shreiking fangirls who paid way to much money to see a really mediocre boyband. Story of modern music.
