Everybody goes through the Spirals. It just depends on the cause to how fast you fall.

845 readers have visited Spirals since TillaSpark created it.


The Spirals are things that we develop over the course of our lives. Addiction, whether it's drug or pain and mental illness, such as Anorexia Nervosa, are examples of these. What one must remember is that the Spirals we get wrapped up in (and you can be in more than one at any moment in time) are things that we chose to do. It doesn't matter what the situation leading up to it was, what matter's is that we chose.

A Spiral can only go down. One must reach the bottom before being able to climb back up. A Spiral may or may not kill you, it depends on how strong your will is.

Follow our story through the Spirals, from the beginning to the sweet or bitter end. It'll be a hell of a ride.

Examples of Spirals:
  • Drug Addiction
  • Alcoholism
  • Cutting
  • Eating Disorder
  • Nymphomania
  • Basically any thing that dominates time, thought, energy, and your life so completely you lose touch with friends, family, and ultimately... reality.

Basic Template for Characters:

Appearance: (If you'd rather just put a picture here, that's fine)
Basic Background/History:

The story takes place in California, but don't worry, we won't be too picky about geographical details!

Things to Keep in Mind:
  • This story is meant to be as realistic as possible, so pick a Spiral you know well, or one that is easy to research.
  • Expect curse words and use curse words, were not dealing with the happiest or brightest of people here
  • Sex is allowed to be mentioned or even a theme (if a character has nymphomania for example), but don't go into detail, this isn't a XXX RP, people should not be tempted to... ahem... pleasure themselves, because of the content in this piece.
  • Don't make a joke out of this. There's allowed to be humor of course, but this is supposed to be a bit dark.
  • Be as descriptive in your posts as possible. Unless you're going for a dramatic effect post, but please, use your words!

Lucy's eyes fly open and she's covered in a cold sweat. Looking at her phone she sees that it has been two days since the last time she checked the date. This was one of the worse crashes she had ever had. Then again, she had just experienced a six day long run. Rubbing her eyes she locates her purse and is looking for the case. Last she checked, she had maybe three lines worth of coke, but opening the case she kept her drugs in, she found that her stash had been added to, a sticky note placed on top.

You said you'd do it for a gram, but it was so good I threw in two.

Lucy sighs, "That explains why I woke up naked..." she grumbles and shrugs, cutting four lines to start her day, per usual.

Wake up, snort, shower, get dressed, make-up and hair, make sure to put cocaine in the necklace for a little pause in the day, after she started to crash. She had it down to a science, it was just at night when things got... slightly out of hand. Slightly. It was only recently, after she lost her job, that she started doing explicit and generally forgotten acts for drugs. Oddly enough, it never really crossed her mind to care, but just because her drug habit was covered by sex didn't mean the bills were. Although Maggie and Earl had been letting her stay in their basement for free, she felt bad mooching off them, so before her most recent run she decided that she would get a job soon, and today seemed a good of a day as any.

"But, first..." she reached into her purse and checked her wallet, smiling at see the twenty that Maggie had slipped in there, "Smoothies."

Paige woke up to her little sister in her face. "Get off of me Olivia! I have an audition today you know!" Throwing Olivia off of her, Paige got up and started going through her walk in closet. Everything in the closet Paige had already worn. She hated wearing clothing over again. After her sister left Paige checked her stomach size. Clearly her ribs were showing. Paige was actually surprised her parents hadn't already noticed. Throwing on a designer tank top and skinny jeans she headed out the door.

Walking out to the marble kitchen, Paige sat on the leather couch and flipped through the channels of the T.V. It was eleven o'clock and her audition was at twelve. Panicking Paige ran out the door to her car. She could not be late for this audition. Paige had finally lost more then enough weight to finally become a Victoria Secrets' model.

She couldn't wait for those managers to see her now.

Katherine had only slept for a few hours when the nightmares came to haunt her once again. When she awoke in tears it angered her and now her she lay with new cuts on her arms adding to the scars. She had gotten up showered, brushed her teeth, then gotten dressed and headed out. She thought she might as well go see Nathaniel today. It had been a while since she'd last seen him so she thought it might be good to see him today. WIth that in mind she texted Nathaniel once she was a few minutes away from his house. 'Hey it's Kat I'll be at your house in a few.'
