Default First Lines

First lines of current stories!
I don't know if this is already a thread but, um...yeah.

My current project's first line is "We spun out of Mayhem with murder on our minds."

What's yours?

AGG- "It looks like a prison."
Fate- "He’s Cursed."
TI&B- "I feel his cold gaze on me."

They're terrible, but whatevs

I could see her, but she was oblivious to the fact that I was watching.

I don't have a first line for my current draft of Natural Forces: The Twilight Talisman. Mostly because I'm just outlining right now. But, I know it's starting in a dream. This is due to me taking away the prologue but still wanting to fill in a little bit of the past. Part of the dream will be fictitious but part will be vivid memory-- as it's highly unlikely someone will dream of truth and only truth.

The day I killed Amos was a Thursday.


My guy friend was making fun of me so much for that /facepalm/

Future Wars Three—

When you run away from something, you don't look back.

I'm reading this book that I love. The first line is: Here is the boy, drowning.

Default Degradation first line

Fear, when used correctly, is the most powerful weapon in existence.

Before Time—

The boy looked around, and saw that the darkness of the night was surrounding him, and enclosing him in fear and mostly pain.

The Greenfield and the Porters- The one thing I'll always remember about the wedding is Stacy's ice cream bar.

Default Commandment, Run, Jade Feather

((1)My PJ Fanfic, which I'm kinda stuck on)
Don't tell me you're unnormal until you've seen my crazy, messed up life.
((2)A slowly outlined and progressing story I work on when I get tired with others, because I'm not posting this, so no pressure.)
Given the fact that I'm mental, crazy, and about to be shipped off to an asylum, my best option? Is to run.
((3)A story I wrote when I was younger- the story, meh. But the first line I like and will always memorize- so here it is. It is sort of like my sig- Lena's quote- now)
It's humans, I think. That's my problem. They're mental and they suck. As if I'm not one.

(I'll need to check that doc for Crimson and Moonlight cause I can't memorize them yet)
