“I don’t dance,” he told me, frowning at the hand I extended towards him. “It’s okay. I’ll take the lead.” He hesitated. “You’ll just make yourself look silly dancing with me.” “I don’t care,” I replied, still with my hand extended towards him, palms up. Still he hesitated, and I had to withdraw my hand and sit down...
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.– Roy Batty, Blade Runner
Writing Prompt: Pyre
hourlywritingprompts: Writing prompt of the hour: pyre It was dawn, and the sun just started rising from the singular, small window inside my cell. I can see the darkness being chased by the light, as if promising a beautiful day to all who sees it. But it brought nothing but despair to me. For today, along with my allies, I shall be burned at the stake. I heard the guards walking down the...
Practice Writing Prompts: Friendship
It was a dark time indeed, and a time that I wish I could have forgotten. Yet, the pain continues to run me down each time I walk a dark corner in my life, reminding me of treachery and deceit, that memory forever etched in my mind. It comes as no surprise then that most of my allies find me useless. In this time of great need, the last thing they wanted is a person who cannot cooperate in...
It’s been a long time since I’ve written here, particularly opinion pieces. I think it’s because I realized that opinions are becoming so cheap; everyone has his or her own opinion on anything and everything, from food and anime to sex and lifestyle. It made me wonder, how does even one measure the value of one opinion over another? Being an obnoxious “asker” and...
Writing Prompt: unsolved
hourlywritingprompts: Writing prompt of the hour: unsolved WARNING: Graphic Content It was already an hour after midnight, and no one has a clue over what’s going on. You’d think it was a simple case of murder, and yet no one has a clue over the intentions. Surely, it can’t be merely a case of theft gone awry? After all, how many thieves do you know who prefer stealing...
Gosh. With my self-imposed schedule, it seems I can only practice my writing and drawing during black outs. Not cool. I have to add them to my schedule. And yes, less Facebook please.
End of the World?
Wow. It’s the end of the world. Again. After the amount of failed attempts, I think we’re pretty safe tomorrow. But I can’t help but wonder: If you found out that the world is *really* gonna end via meteor or whatever (no zombie apocalypse or virus outbreak), what are the three things you want to do or say? As for me: 1. Write a fantastic novel, an epic if I can make it. 2....
After the RH Law
Finally, the Philippines made the RH Bill into a law, after more than a decade of fighting tooth, nail and claw against the rulers of the main religion, Catholicism. I agree that this is a huge blow to the ego (but not the coffers) of the priests who earn their living from the sufferings of their people, as the shepherds earn from shearing or selling the meat of their sheep. Sometimes, I wonder if...
Day 30 - Anything LGBT you’d like to end this on
30-Day LGBT Challenge First and foremost, being an LGBT doesn’t mean I think about LGBT all the time. Like all straight people, who don’t think about straight things to do all the time. I draw. I write. I read books. I work. I watch non-LGBT movies. I go to non-LGBT shops. I buy non-LGBT groceries. I read more books. I read non-LGBT books. I walk around non-LGBT neighborhoods. I...
hourlywritingprompts: Writing prompt of the hour: talisman The thing is old, but just how old is a mystery. The only thing the thief cares about is that it is somehow valuable to someone out there, and that someone is willing to pay the price to get it. It wasn’t hard at all, creeping into the dusty antique shop, the locks of which are probably just as old as the curiosities being...
Day 29 - SHOUT SOMETHING! IT CAN BE HAPPY AND...
30-Day LGBT Challenge Join us this coming December 8, 2012 for the annual Pride March! It’ll be FUN, FANTASTIC, and FABULOUS! Don’t dress in drab; dress in your most colorful, fun, sexy and gayest dress or clothing ever! Let’s show the world why we’re called GAY (in general) and not GRAY!
Thoughts of the Dead
It was not a long time ago, in a galaxy a few light-years away. You meant the world to me, but I didn’t realize that you don’t see me in the same way. I was stupid and crazy and young, although yes, that does seem redundant. I was foolish and naive, and no amount of adjectives would suffice to describe it. Not that it would matter anyway. And now, here I am, sitting and feeling the...
Day 28 - Write a letter to someone. It can be a...
30-Day LGBT Challenge Dear LGBT, Y u no care about yourselves? There are a lot more of us than I see in the parades and rallies about equality. OUR equality. You can drink yourself to the grave every Friday evening, but you can’t fight for your right to be yourself? You can fuck around but you won’t fight for your right to one day get married to the person you REALLY love?...
Day 27 - Your favorite LGBT blog/tumblr/site
30-Day LGBT Challenge Hmm, I don’t spend a lot of time on other LGBT blogs/tumblrs/sites. So I can’t think of one off the top of my head.
Day 26 - Your favorite gay joke (we all need to...
30-Day LGBT Challenge The look on the face of a person I just met when he or she finally figures out I’m gay (^_^) Priceless. <3
Day 25 - The LGBT slur you hate most or if you’ve...
30-Day LGBT Challenge Hmm, not sure. I never had a personal experience being verbally bullied as an LGBT, and I just laugh it off when somebody tries. But I guess “fag” is offensive. It’s supposed to stand for “faggot” which is used to burn, right? So it’s like telling the person should burn, perhaps in hell if the oppressor won’t do it himself...
Day 24 - The stupidest argument/comment you’ve...
30-Day LGBT Challenge That we haven’t tried straight sex. That’s true for some, but not all. Besides, if it’s really just about sex, maybe the straight people also simply haven’t tried gay sex. I’ve seen this stupid argument shot down this way a few times, and by yours truly as well.
Day 23 - An LGBT image that makes you cry or makes...
30-Day LGBT Challenge Hmm, that’s a challenge. I’ll have to try harder to look :/ I’m not into the drama queen storyline anymore.
Day 22 - An LGBT image that makes you smile
30-Day LGBT Challenge This <3
Day 21 - Political LGBT issue that is closest to...
30-Day LGBT Challenge The right to marry. I doesn’t affect me yet because I am not planning to get married anytime time soon (and I don’t see myself getting married). But if ever I want to get married, I want the option to be there. I don’t want to have to fight for it by then. At the same time, it’s a human right. It’s not a religious right. It’s not the...
Day 20 - Butch or Femme?
30-Day LGBT Challenge Huh? (O_o) I’m pretty masculine, so I guess it’s butch?
Day 19 - Maureen or Joanne? (Or your favorite...
30-Day LGBT Challenge What’s that? (O_o) I rarely watch television, so I’m not sure.
If you’re dating a writer and they don’t write about you — whether it’s good or...– Jamie Anne Royce (via bodyfluids) fact. (via howeverinfinite) LOL. Okay, to those who I wrote about in my stories, now you know (^_^)
