Once upon a time there was a shiny yellow balloon filled with helium who was a captive tied to a stall with a bunch of other balloons. They were happy to be confined together and then hopefully taken home by a small child, but our yellow balloon was not. It longed to escape and dance on the wind amongst the clouds. Every day it wriggled and squirmed in an effort to free itself. It hated being trapped and didn't want to be sold to any unappreciative child who would neglect it. One day it managed to work the string loose from the rest and its wish was granted. Because of that It sailed up into the azure sky, admiring the view below and making plans to travel the world, dipping and rising as it pleased. It continued to dance, not realising the gas inside it was depleting. It started to feel weaker and sank lower and lower until finally it landed on a busy road and was squashed by a passing lorry. Now just a flat yellow patch on the tarmac it realised freedom isn't always how
we imagine it's going to be. R.I.P yellow balloon. By:Scarlett

Once upon a time there was an Abyssinian kitten named Schrodinger who thought he was human. Everyday when MissFlowerySmells, the other human in his domain, sat at her desk, he curled patiently on her lap, listening to the click of her fingers on the keyboard. When Missy--that's what he called her, for short--when Missy sat down for dinner, Schrodinger joined her, perched on an empty chair at the table and watched. When Missy crawled into bed at night, he slipped under the covers with her. When she snored, he purred.
One day, he noticed that Missy had left the door to the Forbidden Zone ajar. Schodinger had always been so curious about what was on the other side of that door. The most interesting smells and sounds came from there whenever Missy shut herself inside. At last, he'd find out.
The equipment he found there made chirpy sounds. That was irresistible. Schrodinger prowled the workbenches, wending his way among the boxes and their flashy lights. They were warm, and wires coiled snake-like everywhere. Missy always called him "bad cat" when he played with wires. He couldn't understand why. They were so interesting. Schrodinger pawed one of the wires and tipped his head.
But just then, a light flashed and, in the unexpected brightness, Schrodinger was sure the wire had turned into an actual snake. He arched his back, hissed, and jumped backwards. He bumped into one of the boxes, sending it crashing to the floor. A siren blared, and electricity thrummed through his body. His brain blazed, his heart thumped in fear, and Schrodinger scampered away to hide under the sofa in the living room.
Missy came running into the Forbidden Zone, wrapped in a towel and dripping water. "Dinger, what have you done?," she wailed. She always called him Dinger instead of using his proper name.
Schrodinger perked his ears. He understood what she said. He understood the words, not just her distress. That had never happened before. He thought some more about what she'd said, and reflected that it wasn't his fault she'd left the door open. Wait. Where did that complicated idea come from? For sure, nothing was ever his fault, but he'd never considered assigning blame to Missy. She was just the other human. The one who Opened the Can of Food, Petted him, and Changed the Litter Box. It was kind of like she worshiped him, now that he thought about it.
Meantime, Missy was off in the Forbidden Zone, whining. "Dinger, you've fouled up my whole photonic array. I'll have to start all over. I'm never going to finish my dissertation on using quantum mechanics to enhance intelligence."
Schrodinger licked his fur and contemplated what she'd just said. Of course intelligence was an emergent quantum phenomenon. It was obvious how you'd use entanglement to improve cognition. He'd known that intuitively all along. But then something happened just minutes ago during his Forbidden Zone Expedition. Because of whatever that was, he was thinking more clearly, using words. And stuff.
He wondered what else he could do. He stared at Missy and said, "It's time to feed me."
All that came out was meow, but her head gave a little twitch, and sure enough, she headed for the pantry and opened a can of food for him. Awesome. While he took dainty bites of Fancy Feast Tuna, he thought and thought about what had just happened.
He wondered what else he might make Missy do. He thought that she should clean his litter box.
Her head gave that little twitch again, and she walked off to take care of that odoriferous chore.
Odoriferous. That was a word Missy would never use. He emitted a self-congratulatory purr.
When Missy came back from changing his litter, Schrodinger inspected her and noticed they weren't the same at all. Because of that, he realized that the two of them must be different species. She didn't have his excellent tail, for example. And she clearly didn't think as well as he did. Or at least, as well as he was thinking now. The time before the Forbidden Zone Expedition was a little fuzzy.
He decided that since he was human, she must be something else. He wondered what he should name this new species he'd just discovered, until finally he came up with the purrfect solution.
And that was how Missy became Shrodinger's cat. By:Max Griffin

Once upon a time there was a tiny beautiful cockroach named Curach. Everyday, she would look at the mirror and admired herself thinking there would be no one who was as beautiful as she was.
One day, she found a very bright light above her ceiling. She thought she hadn't noticed this one before. So, she became very curious, flapped her wings as she was determined to jump as hard as she could and flew into the hole. It was very bright that she couldn't open her eyes. She ultimately went through the hole as the light faded. She then tried to open her eyes and saw another world she hadn't seen before.
"How come I didn't know about this place before?!", she exclaimed.
Everything was shiny, white and clean. There was a big white bowl that had a crystal clear pool in it. There was also a gigantic immaculate tub that was more enormous than the bowl. She thought that this beautiful place was just fitting to her beauty.
Because of that,she decided to live in this palace-like place. Few hours later, while she was enjoying running around the tub, she saw one huge creature came. One two-eyed giant brown skinned with four limbs came into her haven. She was terrified. All she heard was a very deafening scream from the beast. She tried to fly away all over the place in fear.
A large shadow came rushing heading to her. She was scared that she thought she was going to be crushed by it. She found the hole again where she entered through at first. She heard a sudden loud bang just right behind her. She managed to get into the hole with thoughts of surviving.
Until finally, she got herself in to her home. She did it!
She escaped her near-death experience. She promised to never get back to that place even how beautiful it was. She was relieved. By:Monochrome

Once upon a time there was a strange little man. He lived alone by the sea, away from people and the small town where he had grown up. Everyday, he would walk alongside the water’s edge, hands in his pockets. Rain or shine, he would be there, in his long coat, every so often casting his eyes out to the sea. “That’s just old Bill,” the people would say. He was a fixture of the town, though none had bothered to get to know him. One day, during his daily ambulation, he heard a scream. It was female and high-pitched and he knew instantly that it was not merely a swimmer in trouble. Because of that, he rushed along the water’s edge until he saw her, struggling against something in the surf. His smile was almost cruel. “I have you now,” he hissed under his breath and threw his cloak off, drawing the sword strapped to his back, hidden from view. He launched himself into the sea and swam with surprisingly powerful strokes to where the woman was floundering. He swung the anachronistic weapon with a deftness his age should not have allowed, striking something unseen beneath the waves. The woman was flung away and she paddled as well as she could back to the beach where a crowd was gathering. But old Bill did not pay any heed as he hacked again and again and again at the water and the thing that lurked beneath. Until finally, the thing reared up. It was not anything anyone had ever seen before. It lashed a tentacle at old Bill, wrapping about his waist and dragging him towards a wide, gaping mouth, its body bleeding from too many cuts. But the old man merely smiled and let himself be taken. Then, at the last moment, he thrust the weapon in his hands into the single, staring eye. The creature screamed an unearthly hiss and sank back beneath the waves, letting old Bill float on the tide back to the shore. The people dragged him onto the sands and he stared up at all of them. “I’ve done it,” he whispered. “My work here is done.” And with that he breathed his last… By:Steven

Once upon a time there was a goldfish named Mark.
Everyday, he stared intensely up at the glowing orb in the sky, dreaming of flying out of his small tank to see what great waters lay beyond this light. A magical sea that could somehow bring even a shred of meaning to his meaningless existence.
One Day, he decided that he should escape his monotonous routine and turn his fantasy into a reality. So he decided to simply gather momentum and launch himself beyond the alabaster ceiling, to that hidden magical sea high above him.
Because of that, he crashed into the ceiling hard and fell a great distance to a cold and uncaring surface that was devoid of water; he flopped around in a panic against this alien floor as his gills had, for some reason, now failed him.
Until finally, he gave up. Staring curiously into the vast landscape of nothingness as he waited for death to take him. As he took his final breath, Mark's last thoughts were of his tank and not of the magical waters beyond the light which rejected him. By:Laurie Razor

437th Entry -
Once upon a time there was a very strange little boy who lived all alone on a far away planet. He’d been left there when his chief three parents had decided that he was grown-up enough to settle down in his own environment, but SUZZU didn’t feel grown-up. He felt deserted.
The funky green planet where they’d left him, SUZZU had named Zoop. The name had no particular meaning. It wasn’t because the word rhymed with soup or because there were lots of zoo animals in abundance. In fact, Zoop had very little weather at all, and none of it was soupy with the low-hanging fogs like his former home had possessed. As to animals, there were almost none of them at all – only a couple of low-flying insects, two species of which were heavy winged with banana coloring across the backs and antennae that held tiny spotlights at each tip. But, the name Zoop was just as good as Planet Barbecue or Planet Mittlebox, and besides, there was no one around to complain they didn’t like the name. So, Zoop, it was.
Zoop was a planet so big that it seemed that SUZZU would never reach the other side even though he’d walked and walked, skipped, cartwheeled, and even crawled when he grew weary, yet his trip to see it all was now in its 643rd day. Of course he would know when or if he had completely its circumference and had once again come to the drop-off point where his parents had left him, for they had placed a silticoff marker there, one that they could hone into if they ever needed to contact him again. But that odds of that were not great, they had told him. It was time for him to be separate.
SUZZU glanced up. He had noticed that Zoop rotated slowly, much more slowly than his planet of birth. Zoop’s movement in the sky wouldn’t even have been perceptible, except that he could feel the planet humming, feel the vibration under his toes. In fact, he could close his eyes and share the rhythm. The song SUZZU heard sounded like this: ZOOOOOOO, ZOOOOO. Puh.
Did all planets make such music? Did they all shimmy to some inner melody of planethood? It was a question SUZZU wondered about as he walked. Sometimes he sang along, but the planet grew silent then, silent as if listening . . . or as if angry that he would dare to accompany the planet’s tune. SUZZU hoped it was the latter, because that would mean that he wasn’t actually alone, that someone, even if it were just a planet, someone was there with him. Oh, how lovely that would be. But, if he made the only other being in any direction angry, that would not be a good thing. So, mostly, SUZZU didn’t try to sing. It seemed a whole lot safer just to listen.
Everyday, when SUZZU looked upwards, all he could see was a huge moon that shown down, day or night. It never left the planet’s side, but leered unendingly, its cratered gullies and pockmarked pimples, showing that once it had been turned away, its back to the planet. What had happened to make it summersault? That was another question that occupied SUZZU’s mind, another query with no resolution.
One day when SUZZU encountered another large lake in which he could not only satisfy his thirst, but bathe his overly tired feet, he discovered that there was a different kind of animal living on the planet. It was a fish, not the kind that would be interested in friendship, but the kind that was slimy and squirmy when touched. And just a quickly as SUZZU had caught it, the fish was rapidly swimming away, its shiny green tail paddling the water so fast it was as if it believed that SUZZU would chase it.
Because of that, SUZZU stayed by the lake for the whole day, waiting for the fish to return, hoping it would get over its fear and come back to chat, but the day grew hot, then cold, then hot again, and only a couple of insects buzzed about his head, then flitted away. Night fell and SUZZU slept, then rose up and ventured off. At least SUZZU had something else to ponder about. He named the fish BUKI, wondered whether it could ever be tamed, and trudged onwards.
Until finally, on the 934th day since his arrival on Planet ZOOP, reaching the top of the highest mountain, or at least the highest mountain he’d encountered on his trek, SUZZU stared down at the valley below, gasped, then let out a cry of “Offlemehele,” which kind of means, I don’t believe it.
For you see, SUZZU was staring down on a huge crowd of people, and they were all cheering for him, crying out welcomes. SUZZU ran forward, met their open arms, then laughed and cried.
When he discovered that all them were his peers and had clustered together after their individual hike from the arrival point, SUZZU found out that they were the beginning of a brand new settlement.
SUZZU’s mouth split open with happiness. He hummed in joy. His feet beat a melody that blended in perfectly with Zoop’s. Except, he discovered, ZOOP was really called MAG, but who cares about a name? The truth was that he was home.
SUZZU brushed down his long tresses, curled them about his three slender horns, and looked about for two likely mates. It wasn’t long before he found them. Then, arm in arm and arm, the three snuggled happily, feet soaking in the silver lake at the edge of the settlement. Life was very, very good. By:Shaara Shamrock

Once upon a time there was a penguin who lived in the Seattle zoo. Everyday, with all the other penguins, he would swim and groom himself. He would look at the tall not-penguins looking at them, and he would eat and sleep. One day, the tall not-penguins who brought the food brought instead two new penguins. These penguins were girls, and they learned to swim and groom and eat and sleep with the rest of them. Because of that, he felt differently about the tall not-penguins who brought food. He wondered about the tall not-penguins who watched them. He noticed they came in different sizes. Some were in small groups, some were in big groups. The smallest not-penguins were even his size. He didn't know what to think about all these new thoughts. He tried to make friends with the new penguins. A group of tall not-penguins gathered a small group of them together and put them in a not-rock box. They went on a long voyage. It was noisy. It was scary. It was very smelly. There were many tall not-penguins coming and going. Until finally, the not-rock box opened and he felt the cold. It felt good. He moved forward, and walked out on the ice and snow. He could hear penguins in the distance. Lots of them. He could smell the ocean. With his other penguin friends, he waddled away from the not-rock box, to freedom. By:MaureenS

Once upon a time there was a lost baby dragon. Everyday, he would walk along the wooded path. Searching for his tribe. He never gave up hope that one day he would again see his family. One day, he saw something brown and furry peeking out of a hole in the ground. It seem to be watching him. It had a pink nose with long whiskers twitching.
"Hello. How did you know my name?"
"I'm Trixa. And I know your mother."
"You know my mother?"
"Yes. Why are you so far from home."
"I chased a butterfly . . ."
"And because of that, you are now lost".
Thad shook his bluish-green head.
"Follow me," Trixa said and she hopped away. Thad followed close behind the rabbit. Until finally, they came to an open meadow lined with Hawthorn trees. Thad was home. His mother flew to the edge of the clearing where Thad and Trixa stood. The End. By:Gypsy Ann the Dark Faery

Once upon a time there was a nasty roomer who lived in a boarding house. Everyday, this nasty roomer got her jollies from spreading nasty rumors about the other roomers as well as about other people in the neighborhood and, also, about her co-workers in the factory where she worked. One day, she noticed that one of the other roomers named Robin was quickly putting on weight. Because of that, she assumed that Robin was pregnant from a one night stand and began to spread nasty rumors about Robin's delicate condition. Until finally, she was confronted by Robin in regards to the rumor -- and he (YES! I said HE!) called her out right in front of everybody else saying that she was nothing but a nasty roomer who was so obsessed with spreading nasty rumors that she was too flaky to even notice that he was merely a long-haired man with a beer belly who not only bellied up to bars but, also, bellied up to buffet tables and the boarding house's dining room table."B-b-b-but your name..." "My name is Robin as in Williams and NOT as in Givens." Then, as he inhaled a piece of peach pie and a whole pepperoni pizza, Robin suggested to the nasty roomer who spread nasty rumors that she needed to be more prudent about opening her piehole.

Once upon a time there was a woman who saw a nice looking, man each time she jogged around the lake. She smiled at him and he returned the smile. Everyday, she thought about the man. Who was he?

They showed a picture of the man and to her surprise it was the running man she thought about everyday. Because of that, she noticed officials in the background were people who attacked the missing man and the woman standing there. After the newscast, she heard a knock at her back door. Cautiously, after asking who the caller was, she opened the door to find the missing man standing on her back porch. He asked for her help to hide him from the people in the newscast. The woman allowed him in and later she agreed to help him escape the city to find his friends. They were on the run with the officials chasing them. Until finally, they reached the area where his friends lived. There was a life and death confrontation. The bad officials were caught and held captive.

Once upon a time, there was a little boy. No older than 10.
Every day he wished his mom would come home.
Even though she promised she would come home every night,
he still didn't like the stink on her breath and the funny way she talked to him.
One day he woke up.
His mom hadn't come home. Where could she be? He was scared.
She was in jail. He didn't know what that meant but he knew she wasn't home.
She had left him alone. Broken her promises.
Because of that, he cried.
He blamed his small innocent self, imagined it was all his fault.
Until finally, his mom decided to get better.
She woke up from the haze she had been living in.
Realized how much she had hurt that small innocent child.
That child who she loved and adored and who loved her back,
even through all the pain, she had caused him.
Hearts are still mending. Trust is still being earned.
But now that mom is keeping her promises.
She comes home every night.
And snuggles that small innocent child. By:nancnancrevolution

Once upon a time there was a man that decided to stand on a street corner and beg for money. Everyday he wrote a message on a piece of cardboard, stood on the corner holding up his sign, and pocketing the cash he was given. One day another man asked him how much money he made panhandling. Because of that a lucrative business was born. Until finally we have a panhandler on every street corner. By:Lovina

Once upon a time, there was a young man with eyes the colour of the earth. Everyday, this young man saw the world in shades of grey, as if bleached of colour, the wonder of the world revealed only in short bursts, like flashes of lightning. One day, he came upon a young woman with a cheerful smile. Because of that he began to see the world in colour and he saw the deep blue of her ocean-coloured eyes. Until one day, he gathered up the nerve to talk to her, finding in himself the desire to feed the flickering flame of his fledgling love. He spoke to her all the time until finally, he asked her to dinner. But she said no. By:LazyWriter
