The Amazing Capt. of Wonders
So I'm in a fiction writing class and we do exercises every day. I've made the executive decision to post what I write, just because. Unedited as well, so their not even closed to finished. Just little brainbursts.

Today we had to choose three words and write a situation that described the word. The first situation had to involve the first word, which was 'chaos' and a 'father figure'. The second had to involve 'sloppy' and a 'mother figure'. And the third involved the word 'chronic' and a 'significant other'.

He cracked the ancient, tarnished egg over the frying pan and all creation spilled out into a bubbling heap across the fire. Galaxies spewed into the air as matter sizzled and popped into existence. Chaos raged within worlds as a tilt of the pan brought raw ingredients from the surface down to the heat of the instrument. And finally, when everything had settled into a firm mass he took a spatula in hand and mashed the universe into an indistinguishable scramble of rage, rants, and revelations.

I watched my mother fix my breakfast with half closed lids, hung heavily like weighted blinds and obscuring my already blurry vision. She took no care in the process, slapping batter and spewing syrup in every which direction. Her weathered, bony hands poured juice from a pitcher so that once reaching the top it overflowed from the the cup and spilled plentifully across the counter and onto the dusty floor. Smoke billowed from the pan as she listlessly stirred tar black eggs. I sat at the table, cold lapping at my appendages, unable to move or speak, just look on in tired misery as the back of her frazzled nightcap bobbed sloppily up and down with each step between the refrigerator and the sink.
It'd been seven years since she'd made me breakfast, or even seen my face.
I was almost pleased to know that in that time she'd decayed as much as our tattered house.

My girl had left me, although it wasn't the first time. Or the second.
The third would have been tolerable, or perhaps even the forth.
But I crawled back to her an unlucky thirteen times before she finally packed up and moved out to Alaska in desperation. Like a chronic illness she'd return to me with new enthralling symptoms, and the parasite that I was I wasted no time in clinging back onto her bony, wasted body. Even now I can't help but wonder how much it'd cost me to hire a sherpa and battle the Yukon winds to end up at her cozy cabin door.

This exercise we had to choose from a list of opening sentences. Don't like this one as much, but it was fun.

I suppose there was talk in our house afterward.
Whispers and nods.
They kept away from it, creating an even distance between themselves and the monster everywhere they went within the room. And even then I could tell that my mother and father, sister and brother, all wanted to get out quickly and relieve themselves from the weight of looking upon such a hideous beast.
The underbreath comments were not lost on my careful ears.
My father would tiptoe cautiously into the living room to grab his reading glasses from the coffee table before sprinting rapidly towards the kitchen. Once I saw my sister snap a hurried picture with her phone before, with ragged breaths, jolting for the door.
I won't claim to know, besides the poor creature's physical appearance, what put them so fiercely on alarm about the thing.
He was in a cage, after all.
His fur was matted and grey, speckled with electric orange spots. Perhaps his teeth were abnormally large for his bearlike muzzle, but that was only noticeable when he smiled.
But, for whatever reason, they hated dear Herbert from the moment I carried him through the front door.

How long have I had this livejournal?

A long time.

With that being said:

"They call me Nanerpus, Nanerpus. And guess what? I love pancakes!"

Can't spend a long time on this, but it's just like me to leave things to the last minute!

This year in twelve sentences:

January- I guess I was stressed and waiting for amazing things to happen without really putting any effort into the happening.

February- I went on an amazing trip to Forks with some amazing people which incidentally resulted in one of the most amazing experiences of my life, even if I didn't have a Valentine.

March- I was actually cast in Twilight and started filming, added stress of course.

April- I finished filming, which was almost just as stressful as beginning, especially since in between the fray we were apartment hunting.

May- I battled with the greatest irony of my life when I actually found a boy I shouldn't have kept.

June- All that I can really remember about this month was I started going out with Brian.

July- I went to Portus in Dallas, TX and met some of the best people I'll ever meet.

August- I broke up with Brian (so short lived) and was perfectly ok with that because I knew I'd be going to Terminus in Chicago, IL where I had an amazing time.

September- I moved in to my awesome apartment and school started, also who can forget SCOOMPin'!

October- I got a tattoo, met some awesome people who lived right next door, and started really feeling absolutely happy with my life.

November- I worked on writing a novel, finished it, and realized I procrastinated so much because I love my friends and the people around me too much to pass them by.

December- I was snowed into my ice cave of death.

Right now I begin the year almost in the same way I did last year, expecting something great.

Luckily I had THE BEST year of my life last year.
I have people who love me, and I live in a wonderful place, so I can't expect any less in 2009.

Less than 1% of my novel courtesy of word auto-summarize:

What if humans had this quirky little evolutionary defect?
It felt like, like how I think it would feel if everyone in the worlds' voice could echo and yours couldn’t. What if I had slept? “How long?” A life of sleep walking. Even if I hadn’t done any talking.
%100 red.
People hate other people all the time.
Answers. “Emily,” he muttered as if he’d muttered it a thousand times before. I felt myself blushing. Mr. Cardell. Lawrence Cardell. From Mr. Cardell. “Good morning,” Mr. Cardell’s voice greeted.
Mr. Cardell shook his head gently and lent me a hand.
“Right now?”
Mr. Cardell insisted.

“I’d appreciate it if you stopped asking questions.”
What if things move between years all the time?”

You can tell that I chose not to always write in complete sentences.

Feel like I should update.

Not a ton going on, being an art major and all, I have a lot of projects, but no tests to study for or anything. I'm just really enjoying learning on the computer and in sculpture. Plus, costume design is a blast.

Next door neighbors (three different apartments of them) are amazing.
Actually, we're all going to brunch at IHOP in like... eight minutes.

I should probably get going.

Oh yeah, got a tattoo. Cool stuff.

I really want eggs benedict!
