For a first date, everything was definitely going smoothly. Alix's comments made her blush furiously, she was with her best friend, and was about ready to get something delicious-
"Food later. I say we do the Fun House first. I freaking love those funny mirror things, where you can look like a midget or a fat man," Capri explained, laughing. And there went the date . . .
Franki gave Capri one of those looks, a small little glance that suggestted the possibility something was wrong. Everyone else seemed please with this Fun House idea. Alix was smiling as he mentioned tunnels. So far everything sounded fun, as the name implied and then Adrian skipped up by Capri, looking up with a laugh at a . . . clown. Good God, this Fun House had to have clowns. Dark childhood days made the "cheerful jokesters" the thing of nightmares. She blamed her parents for taking her to a circus too young and letting too many creepy clowns try to make her laugh when all baby Franki wanted to do was play by herself and sleep. Well that, and the fact some of her older friends out of PHA loved to watch the movie It every Halloween, and torment her by waiting by her bedside in the middle of the night dressed up as the damned clown.
Giggles or Chuckles, or Satan the Clown awaited at the entrance with a painted on smile the color of blood. Avoid eye contact and it won't attack . . .
"Welcome to the Fun House! Surprises lurk in every corner!" it announce in a booming voice that had her giving the man behind all that make up a sideways glance as she bounced back. The group became to walk into the tent, and she quickly scurried after, flashing a look at creep with the red nose.
"Well if that doesn't give you nightmares, I don't know what will," Alix ...

...w, I do really want there to be something between us. I feel it, I feel a whole lot just by holding your hand. It's . . different. A really nice different," he sighed deeply, tearing his gaze off of Carpi and around the fair.
"So, my dear, where to next? You pick, since I dragged you into crazy future tarot card readings about how we're going to fall madly in love with one another and get married and have lots and lots of babies."

- ... "You should really be happy dancing with me," Franki teased, calming down as others glanced over at her. Whatever, flithy peasants. "Or maybe not, I know you're about to die from a Brooks and Aldrich overdose. Still confused about everything, right?" she mumbled, stepping up to the front of the booth and smiling at the nice lady with food. "I"ll have fries with cheese please with a diet Dr.Pepper. Capri Sun, select your weapon . . ." Franki smiled, pointing to the menu. The lady took their order and began scurrying around in the back with the others.... [tags: short story]

- Near extinction fictional narratives are often constructed around a recognizable Western-based three-act structure – an expository opening in which a catastrophe (or an oncoming catastrophe) introduces itself to the main characters, followed by a middle act in which the protagonists must negotiate themselves through a reconfigured social and/or geographic landscape, followed by a climax which the characters are re-identified into the population, now as survivors. By considering this format as a rite de passage (Van Gennep 1909), a concept that examines various social rituals as passage from one state of social being to another, these accounts may also be reconsidered as status changes t...

Close Readings of Historical and Fictional Narratives of Conspiracy Theories: Challenging the Dominant Narrative
- Conspiracy theories have gained a greater discourse in the twenty-first century. Fictional narratives, Hollywood blockbusters, television series and documentaries, and many other pop culture mediums have used conspiracies to spin tales and capture an audience. In this essay I would like to argue that the dominant narrative of a historical event exists because the elite have the power to manipulate and transform it. The group in power values a hegemonic society, perpetuating certain myths in order to create social cohesion within a nation.... [tags: hegemonic society, Titanic, Don DeLilo, Libra]

- Fiction is primarily aimed at eliciting emotions of others. When a reader becomes deeper engaged in a fictional story, they often forget how fictional the story really is and enthralled in the characters.This deeper connection in turn leads to an experience of the emotions of the characters; causing a deeper connection to the reading. According to Bruner (Bruner J 1986), a person reading fiction will react more towards a story than when you would read a non-fictional story because fiction provides a safe place for a reader to be able to experience emotions without the need for being self conscious....

- Narrative Therapy was developed by David Epston, with collaboration with Michael White, during the 1980s. Narrative therapy was birthed from a social constructionism perspective (Ponterotto & Casas, 2001). In other words, the focus of therapy was no longer on the problem, but rather the solution. Narrative therapy views the individual, system, and the system’s individuals through “constructed narratives” and focuses on redeveloping narratives that do not serve the client or system in a positive manner (Ponterotto & Casas, 2001)....

- Albert Camus’s novel The Outsider is a fictional narrative that presents strong philosophical themes such as the irrationality of the universe and meaningless of human life. Throughout the novel it is clear that the narrator and protagonist – a young man named Meursault – is the only character that is able to understand and appreciate these ideas or philosophical truths. It is for this reason that he is an outsider. Accordingly, other social groups, including women, are represented as shallow as they constantly attempt to identify or create rational structure and meaning in their lives – Camus’s notion of absurdity....

- Alison had sat looking at the fire most of the night, the orange and red flames licking at her thoughts. She felt sorry for the younger Amir. How lost he looked, so innocent and so blameless. She knew that when Amir did speak of his true life, she knew he would be upset, and feel horrified as to how the young boy became an evil beast who destroyed lives without feeling any guilt for his actions.

The pure alcohol was as good as any that was bought in his local supermarket he exclaimed to Alison, as he began slurring his words and singing loudly every now and then, and making Alison shush him so as not to arou...

- A Fictional Account of Early Iceland "The origin and evolution of saga writing in Iceland are largely matters for speculation. A common pastime on Icelandic farms, from the 12th century down to modern times, was the reading aloud of stories to entertain the household, known as sagnaskemmtun ("saga entertainment"). It seems to have replaced the traditional art of storytelling" (Hermann Palsson, pg. 1). Njal's Saga uses Old Icelandic writing convention and historical data to give a fictional account of a generation's lifestyle and struggles.... [tags: Papers]
