Welcome to Gaia! ::

Okay, 'tis another prompt contest. It is Blue October all the time. They are my new obsession and my furture luffers...but they don't know it yet. They won't be able to resist me, though. On with the contest!

I would like to establish, first and foremost, that I am God, and you must therefore kneel to meh.


Announcements:

We are open!!!

I explain here what I use emotes for and what it means when I use them. In an effort not to be taken too seriously, I would like it if this was read, though it is not a requirement.

This contest will end whenever I say so, and if it goes on forever, when I recive a minimum of 15 entries.

Well, good news, all ye who don't like entry fees and those who don't really care! I have eliminated the entry fee entirely! Mayhar was kind enough to give me a grant, so that means bigger prizes and no entry fees for you! ^_^ Yays, right? Yes.

Rules (Don't you hate 'em?):

[X] Don't be over PG-13

[X] Include the prompt or die.

[X] Have something interesting. I don't want any "once upon a time" bull s**t.

[X] I note grammar usage, spelling, ect. I'm not too harsh, though, because eveyone makes mistakes, so if it looks like a typo, I'll consider it so, but if it doesn't, I'll slit your throat. mrgreen

[X] These must be short stories, or I'll disqualify you.

[X] This is a 2,000 word minimum and no maximum. I warn you, though, that if you have an extensive story and you lose me somewhere in the middle, you'll have major points deducted.

My bad. It wasn't a typo, I don't think, though I do know how to spell the word. I had the same mistake several times, so...I ish ashamed. gonk
It could be the keyboard, sometimes the "p" key doesn't work on my keyboard.

Those should be enough lyrics for you to choose from. If there is a song that you would like to use and it's not already posted here, PM me about it, and we'll work it out.

Note:

You can use an entire song as your prompt, but if you do, you must stick to the theam and not include the words, whereas if you use a set of lyrics, you don't have to stick to the idea of the song.

If you do choose to use the song itself, I will judge on whether you interpreted the song correctly or not, so make sure you choose something you understand, because Jason uses several metaphores, some songs being metaphores in an of themselves.

When you post your story, tell me how many lyrics/songs you used, and which ones.
X Amount of Words

Your solar bipolar panic
Disorder seems Harder and Harder and Harder
Still you try to control it


You mold you mold
Yeah you shape to mold
Oh you're bold you're bold
But your shape is bold

You're symptom superficial
To what they call knowing you
Minus the speed
Can you imagine the phobia?
(We're recording you)
(We're recording you)

Your brain is faulty wiring
The reason for tiring
Keep treating the curse
Imagine the worst
Systematic, Sympathetic
Quite pathetic Apologetic Paramedic
Your heart is prosthetic

A plate of quite peculiar
On a dish of my own
A tablespoon of feather
Tickle me to the bone
Give me recipies for happy
With the chemicals gone
Drinking freedom from a bottle
To the tune of belong.
(We're Recording you)
(We're Recording you)

(I can't believe.. believe..)
(I can't believe.. believe..)
MAYBE!!!


I'm sick of shaking
Never waking from the hell I achieve
I never knew you till you left me with the
Crying Disease
Another curing reasurring way to
Buckle the knees
So mistreated I repeated never
Blessing your Sneeze

Deleted and defeated
I will stand on my own
Yeah your memory that punches me
Has broken the bone

Give me recipies for sorry
I'm admitting I'm wrong
Still your memory that punches me
Has broken the bone.
Into the Ocean

I'm just a normal boy
That sank when I fell overboard
My ship would leave the country
But I'd rather swim ashore

Without a life that's sadly stuck again
Wish I was much more masculine
Maybe then I could learn to swim
Like "Fourteen miles away"

Now floating up and down
I spin, colliding into sound
Like whales beneath me diving down
I'm sinking to the bottom of my
Everything that freaks me out
The lighthouse beam has just ran out
I'm cold as cold as cold can be
Be

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion (yeah)
Let the rain of what I feel right now.. come down
Let the rain come down

Where is the coastguard
I keep looking each direction
For a spotlight, give me something
I need something for protection
Maybe flotsam junk will do just fine
The jetsam sunk, I'm left behind
I'm treading for my life believe me
(How can I keep up this breathing)

Not knowing how to think
I scream alound begin to sink
My legs and arms are broken down
With envy for the solid ground
I'm reaching for the life within me
How can one man stop his ending
I thought of just your face
Relaxed and floated into space

Now walking to the sun
I calculate what I had done
Like jumping from the bow
Just to prove I knew how
It's midnight's late reminder of
The loss of her, the one I love
My will to quickly end it all
So thought no end my need to fall

Into the ocean, end it all
Hate Me

Hey Justin this is your mother, it is 2:33 on monday afternoon
I was just calling to see how you were doin,
you sounded really uptight last night it made me a little nervous.
I just wanted to make sure that you were really ok and wanted to see
if you were checked in on your medications.
You know I love ya, see ya, bye bye.

I have to block out thoughts of you, so I don't lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I'm alone
Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home
There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you, Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you love me just to put it in my face
And will you never try to reach me, it is I that wanted space

(Chorus)
Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you.
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow.
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

I'm sober now for 3 whole months
It's one accomplishment that you helped me with.
The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won't touch again.
In my sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate.
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
So I'll drive so ******** far away that I'll never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I have made
And like a baby boy I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes cry and I held your face in my hand
And then I fell down yelling "Make it go away!"
Just make her smile come back and shine just like it used to be
And then she whispered "How can you do this to me?"
You Make Me Smile

Some kind of light
at the end
I'm touching
the edge of her skin

Once so hard to speak
Now so easy to play around
Catching your eye you know
That eye that slapped you in your face
and called you a puppy
Well how do you say
I was hypnotized
Hypnotized

My words, they pour
Like children to the playground
Children to the playground
You make me smile

There's some kind of light at the end
Stoned, forgetful, and then
I'm drinking what used to be sin
And touching the edge of her skin

And could you be the one that's not afraid
To look me in the eyes
I swear I would collapse
If I would tell how I think you fell
From the sky

It's the feeling I get
My palms with sweat
Like some kind of daydream
I'll never forget
I'm stuck in this spin
Why does it begin
By touching the edge of her skin
