Letter to Bridget

For this writing assignment I had to write a letter to a friend. I decided to take on the role of my host character. I wrote as if I was Eve Winters and she was writing to her pen-pal Bridget Lloyd.

I decided to write the letter in red because Bridget was locked in an insane asylum for years and her favorite color is red, so I wanted her to see some color when she reads the letter instead of the dull black, white, and gray she has been surrounded by. In case you can’t read my handwriting, because it is awful, the letter reads:

October 22, 2015

Dear Bridget,

Long time, no see. I’m hoping to be able to visit London soon. Let me know what time works best for you. Have you seen your friend, Johanna, lately? I’m sure she misses you. Maybe she can visit you when I do so I can finally meet her. You have told me so much about her. She sounds absolutely marvelous. On another note, my brother is getting worse. He can’t seem to stop killing and skinning people. He is hiding out in my basement for the night because the police are searching his house. I have decided to kick him out in the morning because I don’t want to be associated with his crimes. He showed me his latest mask from a group of teenage girls that he killed a couple of days ago. It was hideous. I wanted to barf because it smelled so bad. He even tried to make a wig out of the blonde girl’s hair. Needless to say he failed and the hair is falling out. I will be cleaning up hair for weeks. I can’t believe I let him stay here. He’s only my half-brother. I should have let him rot like his disgusting masks. He is definitely going to be kicked out in the morning. Anyway, that’s what I’m up to lately. How have you been? What have you been doing lately? Don’t forget to get back to me on when I should come visit you.

Sincerely,

Eve Winters

This assignment was really fun because I got to pretend to be my host character writing to my friend’s host character. It was difficult to think of what to write, so I focused on Eve wanting to visit Bridget and talking about the trouble that her brother has gotten into, since she is directly involved. Overall, this assignment was difficult but allowed me to be creative in my writing.

Story Time

For this writing assignment I had to write a story starting with the ending and then going back to the beginning. I decided to write a story that combined my host character and two of my friend’s host characters.

Bridget asks the Death Whisperer why she is in Johnny’s basement. The Death Whisperer replied “I looked for you at your house but you weren’t there. So I followed you here to America and decided to stop by at Johnny’s place.” Bridget asked her why she was looking for her and got the response “I’ve been waiting to take you with me and now that I have found you we can go together.”

5 HOURS EARLIER

Eve Winters was on her way to the airport to pick-up her friend, Bridget Lloyd. Bridget was visiting from London and hadn’t seen Eve in a while. They were pen-pals and had visited each other and became friends because they both have dark pasts. Eve’s older half-brother was the serial killer Bloody Face and Bridget was locked in an insane asylum because her father didn’t want her after her mother died. On the drive back to Eve’s house the girls were talking about what they had been up to lately. They got to Eve’s house and Bridget was settling in when Johnny, Eve’s older half-brother, called her. He said that he needed help and that Eve should get to his house as soon as possible.

Eve and Bridget jumped back in the car and went over to Johnny’s house. When they got there, Johnny directed them to his basement. There was a little girl sitting in the middle of the floor in Johnny’s basement, facing away from the stairs. Eve was about to yell at Johnny because she thought he had killed the little girl and needed help cleaning up the body when the little girl said something peculiar. “Hello Bridget. Long time, no see” the little girl moaned. Eve looked at Bridget’s face, stunned, and Bridget replied to the little girl with “Death Whisperer? It surely has been a while hasn’t it?” Eve was still staring at Bridget when she asked “you know this little girl?” and Bridget replied with “Yeah, she was my constant companion in Fogg’s Asylum.”

Bridget asks the Death Whisperer why she is in Johnny’s basement. The Death Whisperer replied “I looked for you at your house but you weren’t there. So I followed you here to America and decided to stop by at Johnny’s place.” Bridget asked her why she was looking for her and got the response “I’ve been waiting to take you with me and now that I have found you we can go together.”

This assignment was really difficult because I didn’t even know where to begin my story or what to write about. I decided who I wanted to include in the story and then went from there. Overall, this assignment really pushed me to be more creative and think backwards by starting with the end.

The Noble War

For this writing assignment from the assignment bank I had to find a picture and write a short story about it. I chose a picture of Tate, from American Horror Story season 1, when he was walking down the hallway of his high school preparing to shoot up the school.

Tate

He is preparing to fight his noble war.
On the outside, he is calm. On the inside, no one knows.
Only he knows the secret. Only he knows what is coming.
And no one can stop him, including himself.
He kills people. Even people he knows. Even people he likes.
Some of them beg for their life.
He doesn’t look sad. He looks like he doesn’t feel anything.
He thinks he is rescuing them from our filthy world.
Taking them somewhere clean and kind.
“Do you think I’m crazy?” He says.
Followed with gunshots and screams.
His noble war has begun.
Will anyone survive? No one knows.

Can I Get A Rocketship To Mars?

For this writing assignment from the assignment bank I had to write about a place I would want to live at and what I would do if I lived there. I would absolutely love to live at the Pigfarts Intergalactic School of Martian Witchcraft and Wizardry. Pigfarts is the parody school based off of the Harry Potter series’ Hogwarts from A Very Potter Musical. Malfoy talks about it a lot and how he longs to go there but can’t because it’s on Mars, and he doesn’t have a rocketship to take him there. The headmaster’s name is Rumbleroar, instead of Dumbledore. He is a lion…who can talk. (I also heard that if you are a good student, Rumbleroar will let you ride on his back). I would study magic and become a Martian Auror (dark Martian wizard catcher) if I attended Pigfarts. I would work as hard as I could in my classes, while devoting some time to Martian Quidditch (almost like soccer but while flying on a broom) and be best friends with Rumbleroar, to try to earn a ride on his back.

Pigfarts

The only problem with this marvelous plan? I need to find me a rocketship…

Buy Me A Bucket

For this writing assignment from the assignment bank I had to write a bucket list that could have been legit or illegitimate. I actually started a bucket list in high school with stupid stuff on it, most of which I have already completed, and just add onto and check off of it as I go towards kicking the bucket. So without further ado, I give you my bucket list:

  • Count how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop
    • This one I thought of in high school and just haven’t had the opportunity to do yet
  • Go on a Disney Cruise
    • This one I added to my list when I went to Disney World with my birthday twins from high school for our 18 birthdays
  • Run a marathon
    • I have always wanted to do this one because my elderly neighbor used to tell me all about her marathons and how much fun she would have while running them
  • Buy an Audi R8
    • I added this one in high school when I was SUPER into Top Gear and realized that my favorite car ever is an Audi R8…by the way it would have to be a blue one
  • Go on a trip around the US, visiting every state’s capital building
    • This one I adopted from my cousin and his wife because they went to half of the states and wished they had actually gone to all 50 states
  • Climb to the top of The Devil’s Tower
    • I added this one when my family and I went on vacation two summers ago and we went to The Devil’s Tower but couldn’t climb all the way up it because you need ropes and rock climbing experience
  • Hike under all of the Natural Bridges at Natural Bridges National Monument
    • I added this one this summer when my family and I went to Natural Bridges National Monument and hiked under the first two bridges but skipped the last bridge because it was too far away
  • Hike to the top of The Great Sand Dunes at Great Sand Dunes National Park
    • I added this one this summer after my family and I went to The Great Sand Dunes National Park and only made it half way up them.
  • Hike to the top of The Narrows at Zion National Park
    • I also added this one this summer when my family and I went to Zion National Park but only hiked up about half of The Narrows
  • Hike to the top of Angel’s Landing at Zion National Park
    • I also added this one this summer when my family and I went to Zion National Park but decided to not hike up Angel’s Landing because we didn’t have enough time to, my dad is afraid of heights, and my mom heard that people have fallen off of the trail and died so she got scared out of it but I, obviously, still want to do it

Bucket List Final

I would add winning the lottery to my bucket list but after reading “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson I don’t want to win the lottery…ever.
