I witnessed the plundering from my safe vantage point, eyes glued to a fancy telescope and neck screaming mercy.

Devotion never stood a chance against them, I have known for a long time: it's the defenses you have that make a difference, not the stubborn utopia that some "god" is going to rise and defend you instead. If I lower the telescope's magnification there they are, weird-shaped ants kicking down doors and putting our livelihood to the torch.

But it doesn't begin like that. It begins on your skin, like when a cool wind blows and you know you'll get goosebumps. Soon enough, the villagers see it for you - "black sails! Black sails coming!" and you choke on your tea. And even if a storm has been gathering in the sea almost like divine protection and a few ships have burst against the rocks like bubbles, you know you are exposed, maybe when those rainclouds will bring an early sunset and a sleepless night, or maybe tomorrow; your heartrate is just a countdown.

And there it is. I've seen it so many times and it has but one name - infection. Silent ships climb ashore, spilling their content on the sand like an injection, and from then it's a fucking disease.

On the ship, I can see they're up to something. As the village awakens to the genesis of a massacre, small fires lit themselves up near the water, matchsticks in the dark: the next phase of the invasion will put them to good use, I know. And It's useless how many times I warned the villagers. "Beck surrendered a few days ago, I was there, I saw it" - but maybe they just can't listen, maybe they're not made for that. Maybe this isn't something they were taught to fight.

The fireflies start spreading and suddenly the village is aware. Strange kind of pirates, those that come creeping and make no sound, I tell myself, but pirates nonetheless. In swarms, they assemble to tear apart the houses, stables and everything on their path.

Sometimes they take something out with them, if it's anything they can find a use for, and then it's time for the lysis.

Nothing remains, and I take my eyes off the telescope altogether.

"It hasn't worked, has it?"

I raise an eyebrow, and it's enough of a reply. I think of Beck, the patient we couldn't save in time.

--

"I feel like we're treasure hunters sometimes. And we have no map, and our shovels are fucking rusted."

"Are you in a poetry mood now?" I mumble, looking at the almost cold coffee I'm drinking. Every time we think we're right, it's a bigger delusion to be wrong.

"Oh shut up. I was just joking, but admittedly, right now I feel like being Knights and looking for an abducted maiden or a treasure would be way easier than what we're doing now." Her tone had changed from mocking at first to a sort of tired, dreamy one. It must have been that soul of brandy in her coffee, it gets to her head easily when she's tired. It is almost midnight after all...

I think back to the pillaging I saw through the telescope not an hour ago. "Honestly, I think viruses are more similar to pirates than a medieval castle kind of setting. Plus, I wouldn't mind hunting pirates." I wink to her, trying to lift our mood.

Her finger resting on her chin, she was actually considering the two, weighing the universes and their story like it was serious business.

"... Yeah, definitely a pirate story. Now wait until I go home and tell Sophia that me and Uncle hunt pirates for a living and we're searching for a treasure chest that contains a legendary spell that the evil Virion Pirates don't want us to find."

I finally gave in and smiled, and we looked at each other. "You think if we tell her of The Legend of The Healing Spell maybe she'll actually come see our laboratory and stop saying her mommy and Uncle's job is boring, huh?" I shake my head, almost giggling now. "Keep dreaming."

October Prompt: Left For Dead

Fri Oct 3, 2014, 2:27 AM


September's prompt, A Dinner Theater, had three glorious entries:
  Dinner DateOn his way to meet his beloved Verg trotted by the building where humans cut up dead animals to prepare for their strange custom of cooking. The gentle night breeze wafted alluring scents from the back, while confirming that no humans lingered about. The runoff collecting in muddy pools ensured the slaughterhouse’s placement at the edge of town, where few humans had to live within scenting-distance. For the Ghoul community it was a priceless location for raising a family.
Verg flopped in one of the puddles and rolled on his back, kicking his legs in the air. It felt so good he grinned like a child, tongue lolling out between broken yellow teeth. When the scent was well ground into his tattered clothing he rose, shook himself, and continued on his way.
Taim’s den was an hour’s trot outside of town. Usually she didn’t bother to make the trek, choosing instead to hunt meager game in the semi-wild region. Better to live with hunger than leave your child unguarded in
  Valor and Glory"Gather 'round, children, and I will tell a tale of great valor and glory,” an old man said to the empty town square. After all, it didn't really matter whether anyone actually listened to the story, as long as it was told.
"A very long time ago, in a small village in some forgotten kingdom, there lived a boy. He did not live there alone, of course, but with his family – mother, father, and one younger sister – and his tribe. Now I call it a tribe, but only because there are no better words for it in these times; indeed, this community that lived in the village had more in common with the letters that spell 'tribe' than with the actual definition of it. But since I have no means by which to explain to you what this community really was, I will use the word tribe.
This boy, who lived in that village, was a very clever boy. Too clever for his own good, some would say, though I don't believe in any such nonsense. At any rate, this boy was constantly getting himself into
  A terrible night to be a child.Mika sat down on the floor, next to the low, ramshackle table.
     But no food tonight.  Tonight, Mika would feast instead on tears, tears unrivalled by any he had ever cried.
A thump at the flimsy and draughty door. Large plastic bags and a bright pink dress, drenched, were visible through through the holes in the planks of the wooden door.
    The door swung open, and it revealed a girl with two grocery bags in one hand, and another on her hip.
She was wiping her glasses on her navy coat with her other hand, and her long, blonde plaits were almost brown with water.
  She looked slightly sheepish, but it was clear that she was happy to be there.
    'Hello, Mika!' she exclaimed, closing the door behind her to minimise the rain that was coming in.
Mika leaned unenthusiastically around the thin partition that marked the entrance off from the rest of the house.
   'Mm.'
'How are you today?'
'You shouldn't just barge in. Don't you ha

The winner of our 100 points this month is FireFriesian, congratulations! :clap:

But on to the next prompt...

A tiny little bit of inspiration...



Killing isn't easy. Being killed isn't either, for that matter, most of the times. But say that someone who should have been dead, someone who you killed or you saw die, isn't. And what do you do then?

The Prompt



Someone presumed dead reappears. You thought this someone was dead, right, because you saw it happen... but did you stay to check? No, I don't think so. You didn't stay to give help, either, so you're as guilty as the killer. Maybe you're the killer. Or the killed?

A ghost, or beyond-the-grave story is acceptable, to keep the Halloween mood. :pumpkin:

Do you want a harder challenge? Here you go!
  • Harder: the story isn't set during a war, a street gang conflict, or a conflict of any type. In short, a fight wasn't what caused the killing.
  • Harderst: the leaver and the left are directly blood related, and the leaver left the victim on purpose.


Wordcount 0-1500 words for prose and poetry alike.

Prizes and chat events



As always, 100 points to a random participant. :D

The chat events will be held on October 26th.
  • The first one will be at 9AM GMT and will be easier to attend for the European and Asian folks since that time is from late morning to afternoon for them! Check out what time is that for you HERE.
  • The second one will be at 8PM GMT, which is from early to late afternoon for the American deviants. Check out what time is that for you HERE.


The chatroom is is HERE.

How do I submit the prompt?


When you have written your prompt, submit it and mention in your Artist's comments which Prompt you wrote it after. Then send us a note with the link to your deviation and we'll include it in our prompts folder.

Your friendly - but a bit of a troll, admittedly - next-door neighbour. I love cookies, gaming, Magic:the Gathering and anime; I love silence, music and nature; I love long walks, being lazy, I love silly things like earrings, jeans and nail polish (and I have tons of them all, beware). I love experimenting with my hair because let's admit it, it always grows back eventually.
I love smiles, cold weather, and I love when my toes are warm next to the fire. I love reading, writing, and improving my English thanks to both of those; I love #thewrittenrevolution and all that it lets me to for the community, I love the happiness it gives me.
I love the friends I have made, and those that I will make tomorrow. I love you.

Hey youuu!
FireWorks by 0Josh0 It's time for me to celebrate by thanking you so much for :+fav:ing my poem, "duet"!
:iconsomeconfettiplz:

psst! btw, I've drafted some poetry based on your initial start of the prompt I gave you.  I like what I've written so far, but I need to work on integrating it with your part.  I don't want to take too long, but as soon as I'm ready to show you what I've done, I'll shoot a note to you asap so we can discuss the direction the piece is going in.  I'm really looking forward to that part! :hug:
