In the section "The Contrast Between Light and Dark", my story "White Cat, Black Cat". You can probably guess what *that* one's about. With apologies to Night Owl and Stephen King. (EDIT: There are no undead in this fic.)

I apologise in case the format is screwed up.

Say hello to the rug's topography
It holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on it.

You can't see it, but you know it's there, so don't neglect it.

I can't seem to get out of this horror rut I'm stuck in, but I think it turned out ok.
This here story, "Slideshows" fits in the "The Escape" category and is 1546 words long. ;D

I must say, though, that prose really wasn't my medium and, even though I spent the better part of the month proof-reading, some errors are likely to have snuck in. Just try not to notice em. Best viewed in Wordpad with 1024x768 resolution. ;D

Edit: Goofed up the attachment.

Oh finally, I corrected the most I could and added everything as the story was originally planned.

I know I have some errors specially on past perfect and past participle, which I will correct in time.
There is no chance I can do it in such a short a period of time.

again here is my entry:
