Comment Fic Friday!

Hey everyone! How's your week been? Need more words? I know I do!



So this is where you get to make some! I have just finished watching the last ever episode of 'True Blood', and it was so very bittersweet. I'm sad because, crazy as it was, I loved that show! It had so many great things going for it despite all that blood and sex and bad language, and I'll miss it from my viewing schedule now it's gone. The reason I mention this is because this final episode inspired my choice of subject for this fortnight's comment fic prompt:

The Last Time


So, whether we're talking 'the last time something like this happened...' or 'this is the last time we can meet like this', or 'For the last time, I'm telling you...' or any other way you care to look at the prompt, give me at least 300 words on the subject - enough to fit in a comment or two (although if it inspires something longer, I won't stop you from writing that either!), and post or link it here.

Any fandom (or none), any genre, any rating, any characters! Oh, and if you're a graphic maker? How about an icon or two - I'd love to see what you come up with from the prompt! Have fun, and have a great Friday! ;-)

A Change in Plans - R - Original - Not for those who do not like mystery/horror - No Happy Ending
The last time I felt wind on my face, was when I was running for my life.

It was a cold October night and I decided to go for a jog through the woods. How stupid could I have been? The unseasonably frigid temperature should have been enough of a deterrent to keep me inside my apartment.

It wasn't. All I did was throw on sweats instead of shorts. This one deviation from my normal routine was enough to make me forget several things I usually bring with me. Things I rarely forget.

My inhaler, my keys, my taser, my cell phone, and my wallet. I realized that they were still inside, the minute the locked door closed behind me. Instead of getting the super and going back inside, I went ahead and ran.

After all, everything would still be there when I for back in 45 minutes. Besides, if I was lucky I could find some change and use the pay phone at the corner to call. So this was for the best.

I would get my daily exercise, calm down a touch, and be worn out enough to ensure that I would sleep tonight. All very good reasons in my book.

I was only out for a few minutes before I realized I had not thought about gloves. I tucked my hands under my armpits and tried to warm the freezing nubs that were once my fingers. The wind on my cheeks felt like knives carving away at my flesh.

This was a mistake. I would ask a neighbor to call the super and get me back into my warm apartment. Even if no one came, I would sleep outside my door. It would be colder than inside my apartment, but it would be far warmer than outdoors.

I stumbled as a strong wind nearly blew me over. I was saved only, because someone had grabbed my jacket and prevented my inevitable tumble.

As I turned to thank my savior, their hand covered my mouth, as the other wrapped around my middle and plunged a sharp knife under my ribs and into my lung.

"Your so beautiful. Always so beautiful. Don't worry, everyone will remember your beauty, forever. You'll never age," a man whispered as he plunged the knife into my abdomen again. He pulled me to his car and threw me into the back seat.

I gasped for every breath as I watched the city skyline fade into nothing. I kept blacking out, losing track of time and location. When we finally stopped, I was pulled into a small copse and tugged toward a shallow grave.

He tossed me into the hole and grinned. "Rest well, My Sleeping Beauty."

I tried to make my limbs do more than twitch feebly as dirt was thrown on me. I cried when the first flecks of dirt struck my cheek. You're allowed to mourn your own demise, right?

As the dirt grew heavier and the world grew darker, I wondered how long it would take them to find my bones, and if anyone would ever catch the maniac who was killing me.

Well, at least I couldn’t feel the cold anymore and my friends would suspect foul play with all my stuff there. No one could save me, but I can hope that he gets no one else. Maybe he would trip on his own shoelace and hit his head on a rock. Hey, a ghost can have dreams, can't she?

Oh wow... that's really powerful stuff. You're right, not for the non-horror fans out there. A chilling answer to the prompt. Well done! ;-)

Since I recently posted a story about a series of last times (Which was H/c w/Happy ending), I decide to go the opposite direction. XD I'm funky like that.

Thanks for the review.

Very nice, I love this kind of thing even though I can't write it at all.

I disagree with the no happy ending though... she does get a bit of a HFN - happy for now - because she's no longer cold and content that someone will make this guy pay. But maybe that's me being twisted? :)

I just recently started to write things of this nature. (I blame creepy pastas.)

Not twisted, I agree, I just know that it is not what most traditional people would call a happy ending. Though, I don't think every story needs to end on a happy note. Dark and/or depressing endings can be just as good. :)

thank you for taking the time to leave me a review. :)

Creepy pastas? What am I missing in my life? LOL

Exactly. And it all depends on the story, too. If I pick up a romance, I expect a HEA (or at least a HFN). Do NOT kill the hero/heroine/whatever. Now, if I'm reading literary fiction, fantasy, horror or whatever, then all bets are off. The Divergent series, for example caught me off guard with they way it ended, but it still worked. I do agree though, somedays we're not looking for happy and fluffy and need something more visceral, I guess.

Hey, you are so welcome! I love a good story and am always happy to read and review!

Creepy Pasta, original horror stories. (Usually short)

Best Reader (IMO): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJMemx7yz_1QwXjHG_rXRhg

Website: http://www.creepypasta.com/

My Favorite Creepy Pasta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEwbfnCpKA4 (Sorry, Slenderman, Jeffrey, and Laughing Jack, lame compared to this one. It is creepier. Mostly, because I can see it as being possible.)

*Note* If you are not a horror fan, stay away. Only thing creepier than Creepy Pastas (Because most horrors today are lame.) is the short films from fewdiodotcom and Drew Daywalt (Youtube channels).

Yes, I am a horror fan. Sadly, there is very little to give me a good scare anymore. :(

Oh awesome, THANK YOU! I will have to listen to the videos later. I'm at work right now and I already listen to some questionable stuff and my boss loves to harass me... :) But I've bookmarked the site for lunchtime reading!

I am a big time horror fan, so no worries there. And I hear you. It's the main reason I've pretty much limited myself to watching really bad B-horror flicks. The kind that you spend more time laughing at than anything.
