On the Unsuitability of Fairytales for AdultsMy dear Lucy,On the Unsuitability of Fairytales for Adults by MrWootton
I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall still be
your affectionate Godfather,

Some time ago I wrote an open letter on the supposed unsuitability of fairytales for children, criticizing the notion that children should be sheltered from fairytales. Another view, even more prevalent, is that fairytales are an exclusively children's literature, the rightful
The Pitiful Nature Of Why"Why am I here?"The Pitiful Nature Of Why by IxCANxHAZxCOOKIE
"Why was I born this way?"
"Why did that happen?"
"Why am I not happy?"
"Why don't you understand?"
"Why can't I have you?"
"Why can't I believe?"
"Why can't I just move on?"
"Why do I have to die?"
"Why not you?"
I find it rather sad how almost all the questions worth asking in life do not have a proper answer.
And if they do, the answer usually comes too late.
They Have Returned The air was damp and heavy. I knew it would rain soon, and I realized I had best take out the trash before the weather grew truly foul.They Have Returned by IxCANxHAZxCOOKIE
I was really in no mood to venture out, mind you, but I convinced myself it was all in all the best decision. As I reached the doorway, one foot already out on the stairwell, I turned my head to cast a last look at Nigel, my little terrier who I had grown quite fond of over the years. He had proved to be a brave and loyal companion in the time of the feline Resistance, and since then we had both formed a deep bond of mutual respect and friendship. I waved to him on my way out, though he did not see me; he was preoccupied by something at the window-a squirrel most likely, the poor dear was never really excessive in intelligence.
Upon exiting the building, I was quite glad to discover that the rain had not yet begun to fall; I fancied Providence was favoring me that day. How frightfully wrong I was.
After disposing my load accordingl
Some PeopleThere is a glass containing water that is sitting on a table.Some People by IxCANxHAZxCOOKIE
Some people are optimists, and believe the glass is half full.
Some people are pessimists, and believe the glass is half empty.
Some people are philosophers, and attempt to explain why the water is there.
Some people are opportunists, and drink all the water.
Some people are conspiracy theorists, and question wether or not the water is real.
Some people are clumsy, and knock over the glass on accident.
Some people are malicious and knock it over on purpose.
Some people simply do not care.
In the corner is where I sit, silently observing. I laugh.
I laugh because I am the one who poured the glass, and I find it amusing what trouble arises
from but a little splash of water.
The Good DoctorAh, the good doctor shall make sure,The Good Doctor by IxCANxHAZxCOOKIE
That you and your comrades will hurt no more.
I do declare, he shall make sure,
That all of you shall ache no more.
His methods are queer,
But they've worked for years,
To ease one's pain and sorrow.
For the poisons bold,
Once they take hold,
You won't live to see tomorrow.
And just like that, your pain is gone!
For death can heal the most wretched of wrongs.
Then the doctor retires into the night,
For all of your wrongs have now been made right.
