    Summary

    Seokjin dreams, many times a night. Usually they’re the same nightmare: him, standing tall beneath the corn and wheat. Everything is a bruised yellow, and all he can hear is the tide coming in. The ground rocks beneath his feet like a boat on the current, and he's up to the shoulders in shrubbery when he hears the laughing, running like the water is a field of rye — copper in the sunset.

    “Hyung,” someone laughs, near his right. He thinks its Hoseok, but he can’t tell for sure. Jimin giggles, indecipherable, beside his ear; the ugly gnawing of boots in the dirt and the crack of a beer bottle shattering to pieces between his feet.

    He looks up, suddenly, at the sound of someone crying.

    Taehyung flies over the cliff, a bloodied fist clutched to his chest.

    Summary

    A stiff, chilly breeze blew past Holden that both shocked and refreshed him. If he was poetically inclined, he might have compared that gust of wind to the girl that had just entered his life like a whirlwind. The girl with the blue hair and the bright eyes, the smattering of freckles that danced across her nose and cheeks, the one with the foul mouth but the easy, beautiful smile, the one that was clear and straightforward but an enigma at the same time. In that coffee shop, heavy with the scent of espresso and aged wood, she sat quietly by the window like a light spring rain, crisp and youthful.

    Yes, perhaps if Holden was so romantically and eloquently predisposed, he might have thought all of those things. Maybe he might have written them down.

    But as it were, the breeze only caused him to pull his coat tighter around himself, huff out a breath, and turn himself in the direction of his dorm.

     
    He still had an essay to turn in, after all.

    Summary

    The events leading up to The Catcher in the Rye from Allie's point of view. Reflects on how his death truly affected his brother and who Holden is telling the story to.

    Note: there are citations in the book, because this was a school project and we had to do that, but they don't really get in the way of anything. Also, there's a bunch of 40s slang and references, (yay research) but it shouldn't really get in the way of your understanding

    Summary

    For once, something which has nothing to do with The Grand Budapest Hotel!

    I wrote this parody work as an assignment for my eleventh grade English class sometime in 2009, and have just come across it (I printed it, and so I painstakingly re-typed it and am now immortalizing this drivel here).

    It concerns a crack crossover between The Catcher in the Rye, The Crucible, The Scarlet Letter, The Grapes of Wrath and Death of a Salesman. I forget what our assignment actually was, all I know is this is what came about from it and I got an A+ and placed in AP English solely because of this shit.

    Anyway, in this story, you will find Holden Caulfield, Abigail Williams, Arthur Dimmesdale, Tom Joad, Willy and Biff Loman united together by the strange throes of destiny, as they embark upon a fateful cruise down the Mississippi River, which has some uncanny and unexpected happenings after Abigail Williams strikes a bargain with Satan in hopes of regaining the affections of her beloved John Proctor.

    If you somehow make it through this horribly written diatribe, I'd appreciate feedback!
