“wow this is so cool! how do you not get lost down here?” “Very carefully” ‘how do the Authorities not know about this? there’s no cameras or recorders or anything that I can see. are they hidden?
“no this place is safe. You could do anything down here. he grabbed her around the waist. “anythings huh.” she said nervously. “you said you wanted to live free right?” “yeah. But, what if-”no what if so long as no one talks about it up above people can come down here for an hour, a day, or maybe a lifetime and never be captured searched or interrogated. she almost asked another question but his tongue blocked her words. She could feel his fear and urgency. it only reminded her of the butterflies in her stomach which always made her lose concentration.

Afterward they lay on the damp earth staring into the dark. “Can I trust you Moni?” “I don’t know can you” “I’m serious.” “so am I. I want you to trust me but I've never seen you trust anyone for the last 6 years I've seen you and uh… noticed you, you never talk to anyone.”

“ How big are these tunnels anyways?” “big” “Do people live down here?” it was silent. in the dark she wondered if he had disappeared “Yes people live down here” “do you know any of them?” “yes.” hope and fear filled her. Could I meet them?” “maybe”
“have you ever met someone with an umm a kind of talent that people aren’t suppose to have?”
He chuckled. “yeah, a few”
“ would you believe me if I told you that sometimes I can see what other people see. It’s hard to control who but I felt something when I saw you.” “ You felt me feeling you” “you mean people know” Some do, but don't worry most people are oblivious.” She got a chill. he sat up and pulled her into his lap “do you want to meet someone who can teach you how to do so much more?” “yeah!” Ok meet me at the same spot tomorrow”

They lit another glow stick and started heading out of the decaying tunnels. They were near the surface when they heard men shouting and someone screaming. he didn’t say a word only shoved the stick deep in his jacket pocket, grabbed Moni firmly by the hand and ran. They passed the spot where they had made love she wondered if everyone could feel the past in a place like she could.

After she was certain they would be running forever she heard a voice not with her ears WHO GOES THERE? help they're coming! she thought but a rope ladder hit her in the face before she could finish her thought.

The dim light burned her eyes. “they found the tunnels“ everything happened at once. “Monica, I’m going to use your energy to send out a warning” The plump, wizened lady took her wrist right before Moni feinted.

* Fix the formatting and paragraphing so that I can tell who is saying what.
* How does a dim light burn someone's eyes. Surely it would seem bright, if it were to do that?
* "captured, searched or interrogated" doesn't sound very natural, and doesn't make much sense. They both know what happens when you get caught, so they wouldn't mention it. This line only exists for expository purposes, and it does it very clumsily.
* Butterflies in stomachs are a cliche. Think of a more interesting way to describe how someone is nervous.
* Would a couple really want to lie in the "damp earth" in a dark "decaying" tunnel? Sounds pretty mood killing.
* '"Help they are coming!" she thought but a rope ladder hit her face before she could finish the thought.' Jesus. That makes no damn sense.

I imagine most people know about it but if not, the Mobilism forums are a great place for downloading ebooks.. you can make requests as well and often will end up finding stuff there that you can't wrangle up anywhere else:

Thoughts on Edgar Allan Poe? He's one of my favorite authors.

Would any of you happen to know of good websites that would help a relatively poor college student who would rather get pdfs of books than pay the bullshit fees for them? I've found a few websites, but most don't really seem to have anything substantial on them.

I've FINALLY written my 3-part fantasy journey, /lit/.. I'm already looking for a publisher of adult adventure novels!

But before I get to the business part, I'd like to hear what you think on the series premise.. If /lit/ is interested in reading, I'll be more than happy to post the first 2 chapters as a preview.

It's a book series I started in high school titled 'Metalmorphicum'

Basically, the setting is a steampunk Earth where every human is born with the ability to bend/manipulate (like Aang) 1 substance that exists on the planet. The substance that you can control is determined by the last thing your laboring mother touched before your umbilical cord was cut...

So if she touched blood, then you can manipulate any form of blood outside or inside someone's body. You could easilly kill one with blood-bending.

If she touched skin, you could (for example) rip the skin off your enemy's body strip by strip.

If she touched bone? Yikes, then I wouldn't wanna mess with you.

I almost gave up writing since there were so many characters and so many 'bendable' substances to remember. These included :

No . . . firstly because I don't read that kind of literature, secondly because I think the story sounds a little lame based on your synopsis.

Also, if you want a publisher to seriously consider publishing your work I suggest you do not put it up on Amazon and instead focus on finding a publisher suitable for your work.

Gender bending would be possible too. Your world would be a LGBT paradise!
