Jess is a 16 year old who has been sent to former revolutionary Jim's house to train. They are discussing his past.

“What was the revolution?” said Jess

“We don’t talk about it.”

"Why not?”

"Bad things happened."

"Such as?"

"I killed several children who kept asking me annoying and overly personal questions.”

Bobbie is holding a shop hostage. The shopkeeper pulls a shotgun on her, and there is a standoff.

She pulled the trigger and he fell to the ground, gurgling from the hole in his neck.

She was about five-foot-four, so according to a chart she found online, she'd be roughly her ideal weight if she sawed herself in half.

Vertically or horizontally?

Second option. Funny you should mention that, by the way. I was actually torn about whether I should add "vertically" or "evenly" to the sentence to clarify it, but I decided it wasn't necessary and both options made it read much more awkwardly. Maybe I should go back and add one now. Which one do you think is better?

Also, at D.R. - Does that mean her breath smells sweet, terrible, or both?

Edit: I hate to brag, but I just came up with another one I like.

This one's from the protagonist, on watching a giant get forcefully turned into Ludicrous Gibs:

I’m within twenty feet when this happens, which is like the splash zone at Satan’s water park.

Well a trick used in the chapter is what I consider to be at marvelous level, as in better than genius. It's up there with one of my most proud ideas.

Gotta put more form into that, but:

(Andrew is a grumpy old man, Pinkie is...well, Pinkie Pie. It is the second time they meet, after she left a less-than-stellar impression on him.)

  • Andrew: How exactly are you bouncing so high? Did you manage to annoy gravity into submission?
  • Pinkie: I'm not bouncing, silly! I'm pronking!
  • Andrew: ...I fail to see how this is relevant to the current issue.
  • Pinkie: It's not! But I like that word! It sounds like pranking! I love pranks! Oh! I must totally tell you about that one time we went to that little lake...
  • Andrew (thinking): Hmm...That barrel looks quite sizable. I could kill her and hide her body in this, and there would still be place for another one. Like the annoying blue one.

[up][up] Well I have compared it to other works, particularly ones applying Strategies Galore and I don't think any character ever did more than one thing that could compete with it. In fact, I think Charlie's use of Cake Cutting Algorithm would be the only non-japanese competition.

"Control your tongue, Freudian Ape!" [Freudian ape = my favorite insult from now one], uttered by The Hero Capt. Jonathan Tremble towards Captain Bartholomew Bowes after a particular remark towards his adult daughter.

Freudian ape!
What on Earth does 'Freudian Ape' mean?
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

That's the beauty of the insult! It's so off-the-wall even I'm not sure what the Hell it means.

BUT, if we are to be technical, "Freudian Ape" would be a way of essentially calling someone vulgar, only far more colorful. As "Freudian" would imply "Of Freud", Freudian thesis has a tendency to base itself on the human sexuality [hence the trope Freud Was Right], therefore Freudian would be a overly elaborate way of saying he is overly-sexualized.

Ape would just be insulting his intelligent.

TLDR, "Vulgar Moron".

"I never wanted to do any of this. I'm being stomped on the face towards the ground by the fucking boot, and it will be like that forever. The boot is my forced obligation to protect you no matter what,and I have to comply with that. But now, I'll gladly submit myself to it. Don't bother asking why." From my cyberpunk novel-in-progress, "DUSK.exe," which I will submit to the NaNoWriMo in November. That line was one of my characters giving a rather harsh confession to his Protectorate, also his True Companion and Morality Chain. That was one of his longest lines, as he is rather laconic.
