The Angel's Broken Heart - Creative Piece by Timothy

Posted on November 23, 2017 at 09:49 AM
Nathan woke with a start, his body dripping with sweat. He had woken from a bad dream- a dream that was almost life-like. He had dreamt that he had fallen from sky, and shattered into billions of fragments when his body impacted with the cold ground. Nathan had had dreams like this before, but this time, when he woke, he felt his entire body snap, as if he was a giant twig. When he tried to sit up, he screamed out in pain, unable to move, but even worse, he was mute. Every part of his body hurt, as if a blue whale had fallen on him and crushed his bones, all he could do was move his eyes, looking around at his surroundings. After laying in bed for a moment, he tried his voice again, screaming out for help, but again, he was mute, unable to utter even a whisper. He yelled again, and again, hoping if he kept trying, he might be able to find his voice, and maybe, just maybe, someone would hear him, and come help him, but no one came… After yelling for what seemed like forever, he closed his eyes, breathing heavily, his chest heaving.

Alternative Press - Magazine Review by Shanelle

Posted on November 1, 2017 at 07:13 PM
In this day and age so many magazines are dedicated to the generic pop artists you hear daily on the radio. Magazines littered with pictures of Miley Cyrus and Beyonce, advertising the latest breakup or recording studio feud. Teens everywhere pick up these magazines daily and read to their hearts delight. But what about the kids who don’t listen to Maroon 5? The kids who don’t care about the latest drama? Those kids always exist: The kids that walk through the school hallways, their ear buds blasting Fallout Boy, Dance Gavin Dance, Avenged Sevenfold, Good Charlotte. The alternative kids. Magazines for the outcast teens can be fairly hard to find, although they do exist.

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (Film) - Review by Stephanie

Posted on October 18, 2017 at 12:45 PM
As a huge fan of the Harry Potter franchise, it would only make sense that I would immediately fangirl over something that is Harry Potter related. For instance, when J.K. Rowling announced that David Yates, the director of the fifth to the eighth instalment of the Harry Potter series, would be returning to film the Harry Potter spin-off film named “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” I freaked out...in a good way! Especially when the first trailer was released, I instantly felt myself being pulled back into this magical universe that I have grown to know so well over my childhood.

Seraph of The End - Review by Timothy

Posted on September 22, 2017 at 01:38 PM
Have you ever wondered just how far the roots of lust and greed have grown in humanity, or how far some people are willing to go just to gain fame, money, and power? Well, for those of you who are curious, let me explain… In the year 2012, a deadly virus is spread across the corners of the earth, leaving a wave of destruction in it’s wake. At first, there is nothing known about the deadly virus - except that it kills anyone over the age of thirteen who comes into contact with it. To make matters worse, an ancient race has seized the opportunity to enslave the children who are untouched by the deadly sickness, and build mighty empires throughout the world, free of their long captivity underground. The deadliest of them all: Vampires.
