'Til it's Perfect :iconlightningstripedftba:LightningstripeDFTBA 1 2
Damnatio ad Bestias
Everything was back to front. What little writing Pompo had seen was left to right and, of course, in Latin. While the written language was indecipherable, at least when the people spoke, he could somewhat understand. Their words weren’t all that different to Oscan, and being half-able to communicate was an odd comfort. Not that he planned to talk back to the Romans. He valued his life and intended to continue it.
Things weren’t looking good in that regard.
He wasn’t stupid. He knew exactly where he was. He’d heard so many horror stories back home about this place, and its name was one of the Latin words he was sure he knew: hypogeum. A maze of cells and pulley systems below the Colosseum, which was, incidentally, another familiar word. He wasn’t sure how he was going to die, but he hoped it would be boring. If the crowds enjoyed it, he’d have brought them amusement, and that was the last thing he wanted to do—and, unfortun

The bus was never particularly crowded, and especially not on a bank holiday—the usual couple dozen commuters were nowhere to be seen, leaving only a small congregation of six senior citizens, occasionally bursting into conversation but for the most part, sitting in a silence capable of suffocating someone. One odd-looking man sat apart from the rest, never speaking but always smiling softly. The monotony was only broken when the bus stopped and on stepped a new passenger who didn’t quite fit the same profile.
The girl was eleven years old, with a rucksack on her back and a messenger bag slung round her shoulder.She paid her fare with a disinterested “thank you” to the driver without even thinking about it. Uncomfortable, she made her way through the sea of strangers and silently hoped they’d stop staring at her.
She sat by the window in the back of the bus and put her bags at her feet, though not before fishing an object out of the rucksack. It was a Game

Marie vs The Red Water
Marie woke up to see that the clock read 7:46AM- sixteen minutes since her alarm should have gone off. Precious minutes of experiment time had been lost. She would scowl if emotions were worth her time, which they really weren’t. Ready to get caught up on her work, she navigated her cluttered floor in order to reach her drawer of mouse corpses.
Just as she was about to pick up the fattest little body, her mobile went off. She was a little fazed by this at first, but then made the long trek all the way back to her bedside table and picked it up.
Calling: Theresa Evelyn Jones [Accept/Decline]
She accepted. “Hello,” she said in her signature monotone.
On the other side, Tessa’s voice was shaky and sniffly. “Alright,” she greeted. “Erm…was wonderin’ if you were free today? I mean…nae reason, nae reason, just, erm, I’m free and I’m bored.”
“You have a reason,” Marie said.
“Erm.” Tessa sighe

Black Lives Matter, An Explanation
This is also featured in my Afro Cats group! If you saw it there, you don't have to re-read it x3 
Trigger Warning, but you should probably read this anyway. 
You all knew we were going to talk about this eventually. 
I'm going to sit here and I'm going to explain the concept of Black Lives Matter in light of the recent USA shootings. If you have questions, please ask - civilly. 
But before we do that, I want to get some things out of the way as a small disclaimer: I am not in any way dismissing the needs or problems of other minority groups such as LGBTQA, those with mental or physical disabilities, , I am not advocating for the killing of cops, and I am not insinuating that any of you group members are racist, and I am not saying that black people can't be racist. I'm also not saying that issues in countries outside the USA don't matter.  Okay? Okay.
Now, some people prefer to use the hashtag #AllLivesMatter when

Grammar Ref: Where/Wear, They're/There/Their, etc.
Grammar mistakes are annoying but very common, and make you look like a worse writer. Keep this in mind, however: there are published writers who, had it not been for their editors, would have wound up looking like they were completely illiterate. What I'm trying to say is that grammar errors happen, but they are normal, and don't necessarily mean you aren't as good a writer as you would like to be. It just means you need to look it up if you're unsure. Granted I'm not one to complain because there are some mistakes I make (okay a lot), but here is a quick guide to help you if you are unsure.
(Side note my weak point is spelling. Spellcheck is my pal.)

1) There, Where, Here
Where is it?
It's not over there,
It's over here.
I'm sure everyone knows about the confusion of "They're, Their, There", "Where, Wear, Were, We're", and "Hear, Here". The above passage will help you remember. "H
