“Philosophy of Time” by Zilla Babbitt
“Do you believe in God?” Maya asked. She blew out a frosty steam of air and laid her mittened palms on her narrow bright-red face to warm it. “What?” her sister asked. Her boots were much larger than Maya’s; the tops too wide, letting in clumps of snow onto her sockless feet. The boots, thick black rubber with heavy soles, sank through the crusty rim of snow and into the softer belly, almost to the frozen dirt six inches beneath.Maya repeated the...

**Thanks, Gigi for helping me get through having to rewrite this 7 times****Please feel free to comment if there are any mistakes and/or what you think should happen in the next books or prequels!**“AAIIIEEEEEEEE!” twelve-year-old Annalise screamed, the snow blasting her pale face. “Shane-if-you-ever-make-me-do-this-ever-again-I-will-personally-KILL-YOU!”“Lighten up, Lise!” Shane yelled with equal volume. “AHHHHHH!” Before they could stop, Lise and Shane had crashed into a snow-covered birch tree. Annalise ...

“In my Heart” by ✯𝐋𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐚 𝐋𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫✯
"I can't believe it mother, after seven years, we're finally going sledding again. It reminds me of him." Ruby set up her board, ready to go downhill. She glanced at her mother who was also doing the same. "Me too, Ruby, me too." she nodded as she held the board. ✵✵✵ 8 years ago... Ruby held on to her mother's hand. She was scared. The young girl didn't know what was happening to...
“Some Fun” by Corey Melin
James looked out the window and saw there was close to a foot of snow on the ground. “Thank God we moved into this house a week ago,” he muttered. “And take a couple of weeks off from work.” It was never a fun time for him when it snowed around here, since he had to drive a little over twenty miles to work on roads this state did a poor j...
“Angel Poses And Runny Noses” by Kylie Rudolf
December 14th, 1999, in Ms. Campbell's 1st-grade class, I had stood up in front of the class and declared that I would one day marry Emma Bailey. "Just you wait! You'll see!" Twenty years had passed, and still, she was perfect. Today was the day I would keep that promise. I hope. Emma turned to me, "Why did we come here again, Jake?" I feel my palms turn sweaty, I feel the ring sitting i...
“Facing Fears” by W.W. Skybelle (Inactive)
A snowball whirled towards my face with deadly aim, and I could almost feel my heart skip a beat. I could feel the cells of my brain forming together, waving pitchforks and torches, screaming, “GIVE SKADI A PANIC ATTACK RIGHT NOW! SNOW IS ABOUT TO GET IN CONTACT WITH HER FACE!” Sometimes I really hate my brain cells. I could feel the crazy and irrational feeling of fear crawling around ...
“Alpha ☠️” by Ari Berri
Part 7 of Dead End!“Can someone get a first aid kit over here?” Sky calls, turning back to the table. There are four other people at the table. They’re all looking over at Chase and I. Actually, everyone is. I glance around the room, and see most eyes on us. Lots of them are coming over.My arm is still around Chase, and he’s leaning against me. The piece of my ripped up cloak is pressed to his side. “You okay?” I murmur to him.He nods. “Yeah.”Suddenly we’re surrounded b...
“Lovely (one)” by 𝚋𝚕𝚞𝚎 𝚐𝚊𝚛𝚗𝚎𝚝💙
I have to go on a ski trip now, it's just lovely. I hate the snow just everything about it bothered me. It was cold and messy and I didn’t like it. My parents knew about my pure hatred for the snow and still I have to go. I tried to complain but I was silenced by my brother, Ryan. He was the one that came up with the idea so I’ll go thank him for that later. My mother said that it would be a great opportunity a...
“Suicide Hill” by John K Adams
The clouds parted to reveal a vast snow covered landscape. Eddie squinted as the sun shone on the brilliant snow clad plains. He had mixed feelings about snow. ‘Beautiful to look at, but it might kill you.’ The jet began its descent. ‘I’m almost there,’ he thought. It had been decades. He wondered if he would surprise his sister, Michelle. The plane landed without incident. Eddie retrieved hi...
“Hidden in Plain Sight” by Philip Clayberg
When I was 13, my parents and I spent our first winter vacation away from the Mid-Atlantic. We decided to drive north to the Adirondack's in update New York State, exchanging suburban sprawl for frozen lakes and rivers, as well as snow-covered mountains and woods.At first, I was a little nervous being out in the open, away from the hustle and bustle I'd grown up in. I think it's called agoraphobia. It took some doing, but I eventually overcame it and found myself enjoying learning new things: skiing, sledding, tobogganin...
“Let's Sledge” by Solomon Obedi
James looked at the clock. It was 4:50 pm. He let out a sigh and looked to the ceiling. A small spider hanging on its web caught his attention. He wondered what the world of spiders looked like. Did they ever feel stress? Pressure? Like they ever wanted to quit? “James?” James almost fell from his chair when he heard the voice from behind his cha...
“Ride of a Century” by Harken Void
Gunter threw another log on the fire and cursed every god he knew for sending the cold so deep into his bones. The fireplace brimmed with lively orange flames and the wool blankets stacked so thick over his body, that he could barely breathe under them. Yet, Gunter felt cold. He didn’t know whether that was from the freezing temperatures outside or the creeping of death. If you’re going to take me, you might a...
“Bringing Back the Seasons ” by Angelina Jeong
December 19th of 2095, exactly 15 years ago, snow went extinct. It was 2080 when it first stopped snowing. No matter where they were, no track of snow could be seen. Since 2025, many scientists and environmental activists have been warning people about global warming and how we could be facing summer 365 days a year. It had gotten worse has flying cars and new versions of meat came out. The rate of methane gas and carbon footprints along with other negative environmental factors increased. Warning after warning, environmentalists worked h...
“Snow, a Memory, and a Sled” by Mario \
When it snows, I think of my sister. I picture Lilly, laughing, in a fuzzy white sweater, with hot chocolate slopping over the edge of her warm mug. I see her falling face-first in an attempt to make a snow angel, tufts of snow perched throughout her hair as she frantically brushes her arms and legs back and forth. There was always a sparkle in her eyes when she slammed the snow shovel into my back in our parent’s drive...
