Broken Fragments - Chapter 2 An old wives' taleCRASHBroken Fragments - Chapter 2 An old wives' tale by Neon-Pond
The world became a drum and the lightning was painful to look at. Was it bell head again? Angry or sad... or scared like everyone else?
It was supposed to be her weekend, where she could sit and read or draw... or throw paint at a wall and call it art. Godrake's footsteps could be heard from outside her closed home door. A knock, then another and then, just like that he opened the door. Felicity was much too lazy to care. "Hello, Drake." She murmured calmly, sipping cocoa.
He sat next to her, grabbing the cup from her hand and taking a sip. "It's a good day for a story. Tell me a story, oh wise kitty cat."
Her ear twitched, the ones that usually were sheltered from view in her top hat. "A story? I'll tell you a story alright." The green candles flickered almost perfectly, another crash of thunder. ..And then just like that she began to spin a tale, a scary tale.
"A long time ago, in a dreary town not yet shut out from the other world known as the realm of human
Broken Fragments - A Decembersville fanfic“I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken - and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived. ”Broken Fragments - A Decembersville fanfic by Neon-Pond

Chapter Zero: "Rain Drops are falling on my head."
Tap ... Tap ... Tap
Went the boring rain against the window pane. It really was a pain.
The freak had had more than enough fill on her rain- she'd rather become the Von Pyre's slave then listen to another drop.
Each individual drip reminded her of that night. The one with screaming... and fear. It began to play out like a movie the screen being the window and the player being her head.
The Horologist(chapter10) New Hire Maurice walked down the cobblestone streets. He was looking for a job. Any position would do for him, as he only wanted something to start off on. He decided to try the local Clock repair shop. He walked into the small run down store and rang the little bell on the counter.The Horologist(chapter10) New Hire by Strudel-Monster
"Scarfy?" Maurice yelled, unsure if she was even there.
Luckily she was. She came out to the front desk, adjusting her small glasses.
"Hello." She said timidly.
"Hello miss." Maurice replied, tipping his hat.
"What can i do for you today?" She asked.
"Well, i was sort of looking about for a job."
Scarfy's face seems to light up a little.
"That's good, we have been shorthanded for the longest time."
"When can you start?"
"Oh, well i suppose i can start immediately." Maurice says, smiling.
Scarfy takes him to the back of the shop, showing him how to repair things, Stock shelves, sort parts and such. She failed to realise that though he was a "new hire" he had done this sort of thing his ent
The Horologist(Chapter9) Masquerade Escapade They both wandered down into the city's Under-Residency. As it was called. There were a lot of shady characters. Though, they were looking for one on particular. One by the name of "Nutty-Jimmy"The Horologist(Chapter9) Masquerade Escapade by Strudel-Monster
They both asked around, then they were directed to a small parlor, t'was only a small hole-in-the-wall shop.
"Jimmy?" Twill shouted.
Then, a man came out. He didn't look too sane, even for Decembersville. He made Maurice nervous.
"Why hello." Jimmy said, bearing a wide toothy leer.
"Nice night isn't it?"
"Yeah, i suppose." Twill said.
"We are looking to get some masks made."
"Hmmm...what kind of masks?" Jimmy asked.
Maurice explained that he wanted a porcelain doll mask. Jimmy smiled even wider.
"Ooohhh, i can do that." Jimmy said.
Twill and Maurice explained what they wanted their expressions to be, soon. Jimmy was shaping the masks. After he had painted them, he attached an adjustable strap to the back. They both turned out magnificently.
Maurice's mask was just li

"Mush, Tammster, mush! I spy with my sexy wounded eyes a little something called the Opera, o' hooded one."
"Get off him, for Christ's sakes," Bella snapped quietly. "People are not only staring in fear."
Chimabell gave his brother a sour look followed by a childish whine, "My god, you are one jealous turkey! Surprised your eyes aren't glowing green already. Because, brother beloved, you do know that I could fetch you a Tammy of your own. All you have to do is ask your lord and master right here. Really, it's alright to speak up every once in a blue moon than get pissed about something you regret not saying."
The mayor spoke of Tammy like he was an item; like sucking the souls out of people and turning them into mindless slaves was but a factory hobby. It did not help that he was riding

"Oh no, Melloni, no. That is a very bad idea," Tin whimpered, biting the tips of his fingers with sweltering nervousness.
"Clock, we are stuck. We'll be diving from barrel to corner for hours till we find the kid. Our last aw man, I'm really saying this hope is you yourself and nobody to make one call. Surely you know a few people or somethin'," said Mellon almost apathetically, all his edginess expressed in his wingful points over to the tall glass phone booth settled near the central square fountain. "And dontcha wig out wheif ya get caught 'cause Z and I will give ya the sign to scram."
The clock freak's pallid complexion turned green and he trembled. "Y-you were going to say 'when', weren't you?"
"Do it for Sophia," Zero interjected with a honey-flavored tone, dis

Chapter 1: Freaks
They came out of nowhere, those crazy boys.
"Aaah!" Sophia let out a small squeal of surprise as two young boys one who looked to be in his acne-infested midteen years and the other on his way to puberty sprang up from behind a tombstone wearing deranged kabuki masks, wretched and crookedly done. The older one let out a wild series of laughs but the little one emitted no sound.
The teensy little brat known as Sophia fell backwards into the gray snow, almost hitting her head on a nearby tombstone that stuck from the ground like some ugly natural rock. She quickly glanced up at the tall boy as he laughed down at her rudely. She yelled up at him in embarrassment and annoyance "Are you crazy? What was that for?"
The older boy joyously responded, "One: I do happen to be crazy, thank you very much; and two: That just so happened to be my welc
Decembersville Ch. 2Chapter 2: Sophia and Darkslaw have a talkDecembersville Ch. 2 by CountANDRA
The night fell upon Canzingsvale Wood in a heartbeat and Sophia found herself in a large, pink, princess-like dress. Why? Because of a baby shower that her grandparents were proud to sponsor; at their house too. As much as she didnt want to complain, all Sophia could do was whine about how she didnt want to attend even though the party was going to be downstairs in the large foyer.
Dont they have a house? Why does it have to be here? Its so dumb.
Please dont say that, Sophie. They are very good friends of ours and the grandmother came in close to the childs ear and whispered, They dont have the money to pay for the party.
Sophia just moaned and tried holding her tears back as her grandma pulled back her hair
Fan-fic EpilogueSophia stood at the gate of Decembersville. Home was only a fifteen minute walk from here, the threshold of the dreamlike world she'd entered...what must've been quite a long time ago but felt as thought it were only a day.Fan-fic Epilogue by Spasm101
Behind her stood all of her friends: the ones she'd met when she first arrived at this strange hidden city, the ones she'd discovered over the journey to this standing point, and the ones that had once been enemies. It made her wonder...what would happen to them once she left?
Sophia turned around. Zero smiled, and she could feel her heart warming. Unfortunately, she couldn't ignore the contortions her stomach was going through. Would she ever see him again?
Her gaze moved across the crowd on the other side of the gateway. Tin, Mellon, Decembersville's private resistance, Sarah and her brother Jimmy; even the civilians of the wonder-town were there, wishing her well. It was all over. A single step outside the gate that towered over her, white as the falling snow yet
|Welcome to the Decembersville group, created by the notorious Robin (aka ) based on the DA story Decembersville by Andi (aka ), and this club is for you who know of the story and read it as well.|
No clue what its all about? Here is the link to help you get started --> countandra.deviantart.com/gall… as well as the chapters found in the Featured folder that Robin created.
NOW!! What is Decembersville exactly?
*It is a grand snowy city hidden in forests, invisible to human eyes.
*The city is home to residents generally called "Freaks", meaning that they are monsters, strangers, and out-of-the-ordinary people that are shunned in the human world for being different, finding loving sanctuary in Decembersville where they can live freely in peace with their kind.
*....when Decembersville used to be a beautiful snowy wonderland, three evil orphans called the von Pyre Bros. came into power and destroyed the sun, casting the realm into neverending rain, cut Decembersville off from the humans, and corrupted the city with lies and ruled with iron talons. Secret rebellions are at hand, the manipulated police -- the Doll Officers -- are around every corner, and if you are found doing anything suspicious then it is the Chopping Place for you.
BE CAREFUL, DAHLINGS. YOU ARE ALL OUR ONLY HOPE TO OVERTHROW THE VULTURES AND REGAIN THE CITY.
The evil mayor, Chimabell von Pyre -->
