Title: A Cowboy, an Offworlder, and a Killer for Shoes
Characters: Julia Roarke, Amelia Bayer, Marc Marquette, William/Willie, Doug Burke, and an unfortunate poodle.
Rating: T
Warnings: Bad grammar, murder, animal cruelty.
Notes: Written in 1998, with three other people from my class, for an assignment in collaborative writing. If I’m not mistaken, the characters (except the offworlder) are theirs, and the writing is primarily mine. Yes, I know there’s a sudden tense shift. I take full responsibility for that. Also, the text of this post was OCR’ed from the only copy left, so I’m slowly editing it into legibility.

Title: Life is Bigger…
Fandom: N/A
Characters: N/A
Rating: T
Warnings: Envy. Abuse.
Notes: Ars(e) Poetica :: March 3, 1998. Yeah, so, I said something about ‘my fault’, in the last note. I wasn’t kidding. The swishy Queen Bitch, over here, has had a thing for damsels in distress, and occasionally kicks over into ass-kicking knight in shining armour mode. Tits and chocolate frosting will no longer cause me to extract you from your shitty relationship, beat up your boyfriend, and then buy you breakfast.

Title: Isolati
Fandom: N/A
Characters: N/A
Rating: T
Warnings: Death. Wangst.
Notes: Ars(e) Poetica #11 :: March 3, 1998. I hate this one. A lot. I was going through some shit with the wife, at the time, and well… I was a fucking mess. I was watching her come apart, and there was nothing I knew how to do about it. In the end, I was a fag, at heart, and she was a lesbian. It ended really poorly, later that year, as these things do. Also, I would like to publicly state that it was my fault, and I’m a dick, just in case you like me and were thinking of blaming her or the circumstances. We’re still good friends. I’m still in love with her.

Title: The Jade Marie
Fandom: N/A
Characters: N/A
Rating: M
Warnings: Implicit underage prostitution
Notes: Ars(e) Poetica #13 :: March 3, 1998. I don’t even know what to say about this… It’s not about one person, it’s about an entire chain, one after another… they never saw that they were worth anything more than flesh paid.

Title: Ad Nauseum
Fandom: N/A
Characters: N/A
Rating: G-
Warnings: Totally fake contrition, fag wants to drown a girl in the toilet.
Notes: Ars(e) Poetica #10 :: March 3, 1998. The Thespian President’s girlfriend pissed me off. A lot. Mostly because I was horrifically envious, and she was a constant reminder that he was straight. A couple months after this, he told me he’d been dating her because SHE REMINDED HIM OF ME, but less scary. Then, I really wanted to drown her in the toilet. Possibly twice, just for good measure. Yes, yes, you can call me Queen Bitch, if you must. (Bonus points to anyone who understands why there’s a Clive Barker reference in this one.)

Title: Madonna of the Loft
Fandom: N/A
Characters: N/A
Rating: G-
Warnings: Teen wangst
Notes: Ars(e) Poetica, #8. March 2, 1998. I was listening to a lot of Robyn Hitchcock, at a guess, and at this point in time, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t make it into college, and I had no idea what I was going to do with my life. It was one of those few moments in life, when all illusions of immortality and importance were stripped away. (And bonus points to anyone who knows why Robyn Hitchcock is at all relevant, here.)
