Care to hear me whine?
Some things in life aren't that fair, yanno?
Oh who am I kidding, of course you know. Everyone does. It's one of the most overused phrases out there, "life isn't fair". You've known that since you were little, right?
I mean, I know I have.
Like how my younger sister Louise inherited the so-called "looks" of the family. That's what mother used to say all the time. "Louise is the beauty, Shirley is the brains."
Yeah. Like being "the brains" was any condolence when your own mother was essentially calling you ugly in the politest way possible. That's what it felt like sometimes anyway.
"Am I pretty too mum?"
"Of course you are! But not like Louise. You're pretty in a different way."
"What do you mean?"
"Well... Louise is more striking. You have a more... girl-next-door kind of look."

So I'm average prettiness then. Thanks mum.
It was strange in a way, being the "average" prettiness one. Louise looked more typically boring and average to me: downy hair the colour of a dirty fu

"Wallace?"
"Hm?"
Stevens excitement radiated from his body like rays of sunlight. "Do you have a moment, dear? I have something to show you."
Wallace closed his book, quirking an eyebrow in curiosity. "I'm sure I can find a moment to spare, yes. Why, what do you want to show me?"
"Just follow me, you'll know soon enough."
Steven beckoned Wallace to his side, and pulled a black cravat from his breast pocket. "You don't mind being blindfolded? I don't want to make my surprise too obvious now."
Wallace shrugged and leaned down to allow Steven to tie the cravat over his eyes. "Now Steven, you do understand that I now have rather high expectations for your... surprise?"
"I can assure you, I won't disappoint." He placed a light peck to Wallaces forehead before taking his hand. "This way..."
Wallace allowed himself to be led around the lower floors of the house, in and out of rooms before he gave up trying to guess which room Steven wanted to take him to.
Eventually they stopped. "Keep the

Misery, thy name is Roma
Misery, thy name is Roma
Also known as: the worst experience of my life.

Now I’m not in school anymore, I guess I can finally publish this!
So, last April or so there came the opportunity for students who study religion, art or ancient history in my school to go on a trip to the Italian capital of Rome. As an ancient history student, who had been itching to visit the city after reading Angels and Demons way back in 2010, I signed up in a heartbeat. Besides, everyone else in my class was going, and I’d have hated to miss out on school trip gossip.
The trip sounded amazing: tours of the Coliseum, the Vatican City museums, the Sistine Chapel, and a network of underground catacombs located just outside the city. All things I had missed on my first visit to Rome. Also included was an opportunity to visit some of the locations mentioned in my aforementioned favourite book of all time.
There was just one catch.
Well, two of them actually.
The first was, of cou

Theme 13- Misfortune
“You see, there really is no such thing as a “safe” job, when you really think about it. If you’re unlucky enough, you could probably be killed or injured doing anything. Of course, there are jobs which pose a greater risk to your safety, such as my job…”
Commander von Schetzenburg had her back to me as she spoke. In the dim light of her office, she appeared little more than an elegant silhouette, framed by the dusky light from the overcast sky outside the window. The room wasn’t cold per se, but it certainly couldn’t be described as warm either, which kept me slightly on edge. Then again, I couldn’t complain; few people had the privilege of being allowed into this office, I was told, so a part of me felt as though I had to feel grateful of being allowed access.
“They tell me your job is particularly dangerous too, Kollonchenko?” Von Schetzenburg had turned ever so slightly towards me n

Theme 62: Magic
Friede hummed contentedly to herself, stirring her fifth cup of strong coffee, watching the snow falling peacefully outside the window. Coming out to such a remote base to work with some of the more forgotten about members of the International Intelligence had not been an idea of hers. If anything, she’d have opted to stay away from here. It was far too isolated, even by her standards, and the people here were just… bizarre. She was beginning to think living out here would start to play havoc with her mind.
She remembered when they drove up to the decrepit château on the first day. Had she gotten lost somehow? This… couldn’t be the place… right? Friede had never seen a more ramshackle base in her 15 years working for the II. Thankfully, it was more modernised inside, but still below the average of what she was accustomed to.
Her charges seemed to take a shine to the place though, and especially with the younger members working h

Little Hetalia Rant
So, I have finished watching the first two seasons of Axis Powers Hetalia and I kinda enjoyed it. It did make me laugh a couple of times (especially the dub version). However, there are a few things about the anime (and the fandom in general) that kind of ticks me off.
Here is a list of those things:
1. The God-darn Yaoi:
Ok, I have no problem with people who like yaoi. I have no problems with gay people. But I really, really hate the Yaoi for this anime (heck, I don't like Yaoi period). Hell, most of these pairings don't make sense.
FrancexUK: These two hate eachother's guts
USxUK: UK practically raised USA.
RussiaxChina: If you know your history, you would know that the Chinese and the Russians never really got along.
2. Country Characterizations.
Finland: Finland managed to hold out against the overwhelming Soviet hordes during the Winter War. In fact, the Soviets lost about 126,875 men while the Finns only lost 25,905 men. With this in mind, why is Finland depicted as a girly cr

Some things in life aren't that fair, yanno?

Oh who am I kidding, of course you know. Everyone does. It's one of the most overused phrases out there, "life isn't fair". You've known that since you were little, right?

I mean, I know I have.

Like how my younger sister Louise inherited the so-called "looks" of the family. That's what mother used to say all the time. "Louise is the beauty, Shirley is the brains."

Yeah. Like being "the brains" was any condolence when your own mother was essentially calling you ugly in the politest way possible. That's what it felt like sometimes anyway.

"Am I pretty too mum?"
"Of course you are! But not like Louise. You're pretty in a different way."
"What do you mean?"
"Well... Louise is more striking. You have a more... girl-next-door kind of look."


So I'm average prettiness then. Thanks mum.

It was strange in a way, being the "average" prettiness one. Louise looked more typically boring and average to me: downy hair the colour of a dirty fur coat, blue eyes like everyone else in Fall City, a pudgy face like a potato. I was the odd-one out. I was the one with the blazing red hair and eyebrows thicker than most caterpillars. I was the one with the freckles. I was like the fierce fantasy novel heroine, who tames dragons and uses magic and does archery and swordfighting. Louise was like the main character of a froofy teenage girl novel, who has a crush on the lead singer in the school rock band and has a weird family who always embarass her.

But alas, I'm the average one it seems. Go figure.

Of course, I'll readily admit to not being as appearance-conscious as Louise. Maybe that contributed to my averageness? After all, I would spend ten minutes max preparing for a night out. Louise could spend hours carefully constructing her look, applying makeup with surgical precision, straightening her downy hair till it fell like a sheet and co-ordinating the perfect outfit.

Or maybe she didn't and was just naturally the better looking one. I dunno. All I know is that she was always "the beauty" and I was "the brains." My only condolence being that with the implication that I was ugly, there was another that Louise was dumb as bricks. That made me feel better I guess.

Louise could get away with more too. She was far more violent and aggressive than I as a child (fiery redhead I ain't) and I could count multiple times when she'd hit me hard enough to leave a lasting bruise, or yank out a clump of my hair, or claw at me leaving tramlines of flaky white skin down wherever she decided to attack.

Once she punched me and left me with a black eye. My crime was asking her to leave me alone as I did my homework.

Another time she buried my purse in the garden because I told her you couldn't evenly share one dollar amongst seven people.

One time I told her she was too heavy to push her on the swingset. She responded by spitting on her dress and telling our parents that I'd done it. Mother dragged me to the bathroom by my hair and beat me with her shoe before forcing me to drink handsoap. I remember wriggling free and running outside, scrambling up the biggest tree and staying up there until I was coaxed down by a passing Ranger.

She got away with being disgustingly lazy too. By the time I left home (she would have been about 16) she wouldn't make her bed, wouldn't make her own breakfast, would never put her rubbish in the bin and would leave it lying around for someone else to pick up. She would loaf around all day, eating ridiculous amounts of junk food and complaining incessantly about having a sore back or sore legs or toothache and using it as an excuse to not do anything. It never did cross her mind that her ailments might have been down to a bad case of lazyitis.

I don't speak to Louise any more. I haven't even seen her in over twenty years now. I've heard she's married now (to a tranny, no less), and that she has two children (called Ava and Dylan if memory serves). I think she owns a hair salon, or a wedding planners, or something stereotypically girly like that. I think she still lives in Fall City, since she was always too lazy to leave. I don't know how much she earns, but even if it's less than what I do I bet she flaunts it more. Spending money was one of her favourite pastimes.

Do I envy her though? Fuck no. Do I even have anything to envy? Aside from looks, it's "no" again. I'm quite content with my life.

I wonder if Louise is too?
Care to hear me whine?
Shirley's pretty bitter.

I like to think it shows.
