Another article featuring pieces from our members! This is a great opportunity to showcase your works to more than 39k members!
How can I get featured?
In the 15th of every month, we will post the feature poll. Just leave a thumbnail of one of your works on that poll and we will feature you in the 1st of next month. Make sure you comment before we close the poll. There's only 200 slots!
Can I use the 'Add Media' button to add my thumbnail?
No! please don't. Just copy and paste your thumbnail in the comment then delete the last : so the thumbnail won't work. This way is much easier for us to copy and paste thumbnails into the journal rather than opening several taps just copy them from there. EDIT: Problem with the deviations has been fixed they are now clickable
Here's CI monthly feature:
Mind Shift Ch. 6"Get him!"
I ran out of the room and toward the elevator. Two bisharp blocked my way. I stopped, taking a few steps backward. I backed into another bisharp.
"L-Let me through or else," I warned, drawing my sword.
The bisharp burst out into laughter.
"I-I'm serious! I'll rip you guys into shreds!"
One of the bisharp extended his blades and swung at me from the side. I blacked it with my sword, but the blow knocked me backwards. It came in for another attack, this time from above. I rolled over, got up and was swung at by the other bisharp. I blocked that attack, too, but it was expecting that and pushed me to the side. I hit the wall with a small grunt. I barely had time to straighten myself out before one of the bisharp used slash. I held up the blade and I thought it was going to break it, or knock the sword out of my hands. Damn, they're just too strong, I thought, I can't keep up.
"Are you ready to give up yet, boy," The lady asked, placing her hand on her hip.
I stood back up, trem
Red Riding Hood's CabaretA dancing girl with fiery hair,
Twirling smoke around her finger
Dances in darkness for a sea of howling wolves
Unclothed, her emptiness is put on stage
To burn in the spotlight
As claws scratch at the floor
She plucks a hot cigarette from one of the fingers
Puts it to her lips and takes a warm sultry drag
"Look, but don't touch" she mutters,
Stepping just close enough for a claw to rip into her thigh
And she whispers into the snarling crowd
"What more do you want?"
as her hips and crimson lips rock smoothly and tempt softly
And while her legs move, her eyes dance and smile,
Unsolvable mazes of golden brown for irises.
A subtle wink gives wolves the night of their lives.
Sequins stun, glitter falls,
and the cabaret is full to burst of testosterone
Roaring with the stench of festering whiskey
But all eyes are on the girl, with a hood of scarlet hair
Tempting wolves with whispers and lies
Of a night alone with fire
