There were creatures in the sky, they used to say in old stories. Creatures dwelling in castles made out of bright clouds, the kinds that would make you lose yourself in your own thoughts as they traveled beyond the high and endless space of the cosmos above the ground. Few mortal men had heard the stories, but none had actually seen what was beyond the white cotton clouds. But make no mistake of it, we’re here alright.
“Sir,” the butler walked into the room as I was typing away at my typewriter, “Sir Galagan.”
“Yes, what is it, Klein?” I asked, still typing.
“I just thought I’d let you know that the drought this year seems dreadfully hot. The people down there seem rather… distressed.”
But I merely scoffed at his concern. I grabbed the wine bottle by the table and poured in another glass. It all went down in one gulp.
“Klein,” I said casually, “must I remind you that we are not to be involved with the
The ScrunchyIt was a peaceful Saturday morning. Samantha was seated at the small wooden table with a cup of cheap instant coffee resting between her hands.
She sat motionless in front of the window as sunlight slowly drifted in as the sun rose into the sky.
Samantha stared down at the table thinking about, of all things, a scrunchy. Specifically, a light pink scrunchy.
It was a peculiar thing to buy for a number of reasons. Samantha had no use for a scrunchy, her hair was short and could not be pulled back far enough to be put in a pony tail.
Even when Samantha was younger and her hair was long enough she preferred to leave it down and would only put it up when it was hot out. But, it was not hot at all, it was quite chilly out.
So why buy the scrunchy in the first place if she could not wear it and would not if she could? Well because it was for someone else. Someone who had long hair. Someone who often wore her hair in a pony tail.
Someone who was very special.
It was impulsive to buy the scrunc
Story Time!So, I have an adorable little gray kitten named Stormy. She is a demon. Seriously! This cat is insane!
(She's a lot bigger now.)
I think she's out to get me. She's always attacking me, or trying to give me a heart attack!
When I zip up my jacket she jumps up out of nowhere and latches onto my arm! She once made me scream because of that...
One day she was hiding in a box I had on the floor. For some reason, she jumped out of the box and ran at full speed to the window before jumping onto the curtains and climbing all the way to the ceiling! Then she just looked down at me like "Whatcha gonna do?"
Still don't think she's crazy? One morning when I was brushing my teeth I heard a scratching sound. Looking to the left there I say her. Stormy had somehow climbed up the door frame and was just hanging there looking at me!
We stared at each other for a moment before she jumped down and ran down the steps. She was attacking my feet a lot when I would walk
Missing Memories ~ Friendship'Why must this girl follow me around all the time?' A young Rikona asked herself as she wondered the forest, hearing leaves crunch under Yasumi's feet as she followed close behind.
It had been about a month since Rikona arrived at the village and this blue haired girl had taken a shine to her.
She never said much to Rikona, just watched her with that big grin on her face.
"Why are you following me!?" Rikona asked angrily as she spun around to face Yasumi.
Yasumi blinked as if she was wondering what Rikona's sudden outburst was about.
"Well!?" Rikona asked. Yasumi stepped closer and smiled. "Because we're friends!" Yasumi exclaimed.
It was Rikona's turn to blink. 'Friends?' Rikona thought. "What are you talking about? We barley know each other."
"Yeah? Than tell me about yourself." Yasumi replied.
Rikona stayed quiet for a moment.
'No. No way in hell. She's to much like...'
Rikona grimaced at the thought.
"Just go back and leave me be. We are not friends. I'm leaving soon anyway."

after I fused with Yubel she said “we have to travel to another world.” I asked them “what changes will happen to me and you?” the spirit replied “you will go back to being 15 and myself and all the main monsters in your deck will become the creatures of this world called Pokémon. Neos and I will stay with you since the 2 of us are part of your soul but the others I can’t make any promises for others.” I then asked “what about my friends?” Yubel replied “the people sent to the stars might come to the same region we are or go home, I can’t be sure but Johan, Sho and Misawa will come to the same region as you, with their monsters transformed into Pokémon as well. when wake up you will be arriving in your new home with your new mother.” I was about to asked the spirit how I could find my fri

After my daughter was born, I went to see the ancient one about an incident that happened in Missouri. The woman replied to me “that was one of the last celestials and if his spore grew too much, I would have phased it out of this realm.” I replied to her with “Did that incident have any connection to the infinity stones?” she said “yes, Ego needed one of his children to wake up their celestial factory somehow and one of the stones is the perfect thing to flip the switch.” I then left the house and called Coulson with “can you do me a favor Coulson?” he replied “I hope it isn’t too hard or illegal.” My reply was “it shouldn’t be either, but you might have to send some agents down south, about 2 years ago while shield was rebuilding a mass formed in Missouri. I need you to check for mysterious people, deaths and disappearances over the last 30 years or so.” The balding man replied “do you th

After checking I discovered the U.A. Sports Festival eclipsed the Olympics in japan. When I checked the internet more, it seemed the Olympics committee was trying to win japan back. I also noticed while scanning Izuku that he was having issues regulating his output and the way he used his power was very different than how I used my strength. It was pretty much that he needed to build up his body and prana connects to use his powers without shattering his body. His quirkless body was like my old body before I started with magecraft. I could tell from our fun time he was starting to learn control but still far from it.
The next day was the start of the games, the first event was a race. Before the race started emerald asked me “mistress, do you want to win this easy?” I replied to her “how easy?” the mystic code said “in standard magical girl form, you can fly at about 23 mph. master encoded me to the English system to mess with you.

“THE BUILDING IS HUNGRY!”
“This is it?” Kato demanded. “Why didn’t you just go in and get ’em?”
They stood in front of a blocky red brick building occupying one corner of the block, with a narrow alley running between it and its neighbor. Four stories of it, though fairly modest compared to some of the buildings marching down the street toward this side of town. Chiseled into the entrance were the words:
“That might be easier said than done,” Max told them, pointing to that unremarkable entrance. “The guy who told me where your friends went” (whom he noticed, was no longer about) “also warned me that some also call this place the Never-Ending Building. He said that those who go in are never seen again.”
“That’s the stupidest thing I ever heard,” Justin commented, almost laughing. Even as bottomless as Tranz-D had seemed, he was still certain there wa
Tradewinds 08 CH 01
The two of them just stood there for a long moment, simply staring at each other.
Of course, who could blame her? Tranz-D had seemed so empty and deserted, even after the alarms, it was still so devoid of life until she spotted some armored figures marching down one of the halls, so she was surprised that this stranger had not only appeared out of the blue, but also just happened to stumble upon her hiding spot. Enduring some two weeks in hell had certainly taken its toll on the guy: dirty, tattered clothes, disheveled hair, and dark circles under his eyes gave him a crazed look that, combined with his sheer desperation, she found shocking, almost frightening. The double-barrel power pistol he pointed at her wasn’t very encouraging, either.
Of course, Justin wasn’t too happy about the power pistol this strange young woman was aiming at him, as well. After enduring so many days in this ungodly hellhole, he had begun to despair of ever seeing a
Part 15: A change of plansThe Sun was setting upon the city of Venice, and many gondolas filled with VIPs were arriving at the Piazza San Marco, which was brightly lit up by an inestimable number of torches and lanterns. It was quite a spectacle, but not one that Prince Gabriel noticed or cared much about at the moment. His mind was lost amidst the distant past, recalling the deeds of one his great heroes.
“Um… So Eratosthenes knew that the Sun was directly overhead at noon in Syene on the summer solstice, because the shadow of someone looking down a deep well in Syene on the summer solstice blocked the reflection of the Sun on the water. That did not happen in Alexandria. Instead, the Sun cast a shadow that he measured to be at an angle equivalent 1/50th of a circle. So he realized that the circumference of the Earth is fifty times the distance between Alexandria and Syene. He had a man march from Alexandria to Syene and found out it is 5,000 stadia, so the distance around the Earth is 250,000 stad
Medusa “Search everywhere! Do not let her escape with that abomination.” The General gave the order and the soldiers split off to find their prey. Even with all those among the search party, they failed to discover the woman in the brown tunic behind the pillar holding a wicker basket.
Chased from her village at the bottom of the mountain, she had made haste to the safety of the Parthenon. She fled into the lower level of the sanctuary in hopes that this would give her the time she needed. In the far back, she came across a towering statue of Athena at the top of a staircase. The woman laid the basket at the foot of the statue and paused. “Forgive me Athena for what I am about to do. I was unable to protect my child from the evils of this world. Please watch over her, and in time she may learn to control this curse and return to a normal life.”

.:Let Me Tell You:.Everything was just a mess in Christopher’s head, even more than it had been before. With Lewis’ involvement in everything, things had just gotten double the messy, knowing that the brunet’s intentions were pretty much to drive Sebastian to do his every bidding, or throw him over the edge. Something in the back of Christopher’s mind told him though that no matter the outcome of Lewis’ actual plans, eventually Sebastian was going to get the short end of everything either way. He really had it coming, Christopher had to admit that, but that still didn’t mean that he was exactly looking forward of it happening.
Who knew what was going to happen after that, when Sebastian would one way or another be thrown to the side, letting him finally have what he deserved and what had been coming for him for years now. Justice. When it would hit him hard, there was not going to be anything left of the blond. If all that Sebastian had told him
.:Your Dirty Little Secret:.”Two years is a long time. I’m surprised you haven’t changed a bit.”
The stunned Christopher just sat on his spot on the couch where he had been directed earlier, pair of wide blue carefully observing every move of the brunet who had by some miracle walked back into his life seemingly entirely out of the blue. There he was, the man he knew in the past by the name of Lewis Robinson, who had worked under the orders of Sebastian alongside with him and Caitlin all those years ago. Well, two years, but you get the point.
Lewis was always the inside man, so to speak, in every outside work they ended up doing. Sebastian’s company hadn't just been about making medicine and doing illegal, inhuman testings on the side – he was serious about his competition, he had always been, wanting to take things a step further from what they had been before he took the leadership of the place into his terrifying hands. So ins
At DawnSheathe your sword and wait for the morrow.
For at dawn, we fight as one.
For justice and freedom,
For life and hope,
We shall make our stand here.
Sharpen your axe and cleave with its blade.
For our dreams and ideals
Holding them high above our heads.
As we fight, they will aid us
For at dawn we’ll fight.
String your bow and nock your arrow
Take aim and never lose sight
Of what we fight for
Of what we’re here for
For at dawn we fight.
And when the midday sun has risen
Higher and higher into the sky
Lay down your weapons
The war has ended
For at dawn we fought.
Poems #23-#25 The Reveal (Trilogy) [Long Cut]A world filled with darkness
A world filled with light
A world in between is where I live
Every day makes me exhausted
But tomorrow will be different
Tomorrow is the ultimate day
It’s no longer just games
My heart races faster than sound
Faster than light
I’m steering my ship
Towards the right direction
I spin the wheel
I am the captain
I broke down one day
Now I’m back
It’s no longer just games
The dream of my heart awaits
Tomorrow makes history for me
It will be a good day no matter what
My anxiety is finally relieved
It feels like it’s been three thousand years
A beautiful new start
Tomorrow is the ultimate day
It's finally tomorrow
The new dream is here
The world is collapsing around me
Our hearts never lie
It’s finally time
The drums beat on, my friends
I feel like I’m falling down slapstick stairs
Down an endless spiral
My anxiety has arrived
Today is the day I’ve awaited for
It’s been too long
It’s finally time
The April FoolWhat say you,
oh conscious fool,
happily on your way?
Through the busy streets,
filled with liars and cheats,
many of which will say:
"Look at that fool,
who acts like a tool,
why won't he just go away?
He dances around,
stomping the ground,
I propose that we make him pay.
A tax one cried,
a bill one replied,
finally the fool will pay.
For bringing to light,
our misery and plight,
we trudge through everyday."
"That fool acts so happy,
while our days are crappy,
why shouldn't he have to pay?"
Here, here said the liars,
Here here said the cheats,
and a bill was passed that day.
They humbled and grumbled,
they bickered and snickered,
each trying to get their own way.
But they finally decided,
and all were excited,
for now the fool will pay,
...for now the fool will pay.
Now the fool caught wind,
of the plot against him,
and it filled his heart with dismay.
He was a conscious fool,
and a deliberate tool,
why would they treat him this way?
He just liked to smile,
not just once in a while,
Neutrino dowsingLove is a brilliant idea, but
around the most placid dreams come
flowers and silence,
serendipity and snowfall,
matutinal silhouettes in
the realm of awakening moss.
When cats revolt,
our darker purpose may
finally become clear --
with child-like wonder
and the charm of grit
neutrino dowsing will not be
our last resort.
Love is, after all, a brilliant idea.
Easter Present Acantha had always been a curvy woman, her Latin family genes working in her favor. Soft curves made up her body from the swell of her breasts, to the gentle slope of her stomach, all the way down to the two mounds resting on her backside. She had always been proud of her figure, flaunting around in tight tops and booty shorts to show off not only her great physique, but also her smooth caramel colored skin. Long curly locks of ebony hair cascade down her back, ending just above the small of her back.
This particular Easter Acantha had decided to stay home in order to celebrate with her boyfriend. He was currently away for a conference for work, but would be returning in time for them to have a nice dinner together.
This was one holiday that Acantha was never particularly fond of. All the candy and various sweets offered at various family gatherings were always hard for her to resist. Despite her slimmer body, she had a ferocious
Easter Day Surprise~
It was that time of year again, Easter. As Sparkz laying in his bed bored out of his mind. Mimi, Zeke, and Sidney all had gone out for the day to do some Easter events with their friends and what not. But Sparkz just couldn't get into the thrill of it anymore. So he just decided to chill all day and watch some t.v. and what not.
"Oh man I am so bored." Sparkz said yawning, wearing an orange t-shirt, dark shorts, and some short white socks.
Sparkz brushed his short spiky orange hair of his face as he began to channel surf until he heard a bang on his door.
"GAH!" He said gasping and jumping up. "T-The heck was that?! Who is there?" He yelled asking.
But there was no response. Only more banging causing him to slowly walk to his room door and open it.
"Okay whoever is doing that! Cut it out right now!" Sparkz said looking out. "...............What in the!"
Sparkz looked out to find quite the sight awaiting him. There was an odd huge glowing portal right outside his door in the hallway of
A Jewelry Box EasterAzure was picking a new Dress for today. It was Easter, a holiday that All of Equestria celebrated when Winter was cleaned up, making the way for Spring, celebrating birth and rebirth of life in nature and in Pony kind. There were fun games to play this day, and lots of sweets to have.
It had been months since he Joined the Jewelry Box, and since then, Azure has been having a blast being Sapphire or rather, being Sapphire’s ore, with the other gems. Bulkhead, who was known as Sapphire to the group, was teaching him all the ropes of the group since he chose to be Azure's Jeweler. Azure learned proper makeup techniques, choosing the right dress for the right occasion, picking the right accessories and how to look and act prim and proper…and even a little naughty.
Today was a big day for the Jewelry Box, an Easter parade and fair was planned today in Ponyville, and the Gems were hosting it, making it a charity event, all the profits that they generated would go to Foals in nee
Untitled sort-of Christmas story Happy music played loudly from the Greene family’s house. Simon burped, bored, eyes closing. It was the holidays. Christmas was his least favorite time of year. It reminded him too much of his father, who passed away suddenly on Christmas Eve. The pair had been close.
His new stepdad, as of July, tried to connect with him. Jim was trying to be kind to Simon, and trying to soothe the boy. His father had died 6 years ago, after all, when Simon was 15. But the bond the boy’d had with his dad was so strong that he still resented Jim.
There should be some kind of Ghosts of Christmas Past thing going on here, Simon thought bitterly, staring daggers at Jim and his mother, Vicki. They looked happy. It made Simon angry. Why had his mother moved on and he couldn’t?
“Hey, Si, Merry Christmas.” Jim lightly tossed him a b
[W101] Eagle101- Chapter SixEmma hurried out of her class to find Krystal and Anna, ready for another day of questing. She found Anna quickly as she stood in the same place she always waited, the light pole. "How was class?" Anna asked, looking at her friend.
"It was good," Emma said. "What about you?"
"Boring," She said with a yawn. "Our former professor, Malistaire, left and took the death school with him, so we've been having class outside. His best student, Malorn Ashthorn, took over the class and began teaching, but he's not very exciting, nor is he very good at it."
"He took the school?" Emma questioned.
"He went crazy," Anna explained. "Raving about conquering the Spiral and all. He finally just lost it and left with the school."
"Oh," Emma said, still uncertain.
"Hey, Anna," The Necromancer turned as her name was called. Issy walked up, cutting off the conversation with her tail held high. Her armor was shiny as ever and reflected the sun's light, giving her an almost angelic glow.
"Hey, Issy!" Anna smile

So, four padawans in an air speeder. Anthony and Cor were up front and Grace and I were in the back. Suddenly, Cor clears his throat as if to speak, then he puts both his feet on the dashboard and lets go of this long, high-frequency, squeak-fart. Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeooooooooooweeeeeeeeet! Once the echo died away all four of us doubled over in laughter. It was the weirdest fart we had ever heard, and it took about four seconds for Anthony to open the cockpit because it smelled horrific. -- Kendra
In the lobby of the medical center we once had this horrible, ugly, futon that sagged and things got lost in it, it wasn't even comfortable. We all hated that thing. One day while I was walking my patient to the door we heard the sound of a lightsaber followed by some thumping noises. When we reached the lobby we saw the couch was in several pieces, and there was Master M
[W101] Eagle101- Chapter SevenThe Arena in Unicorn Way stood before Emma and Issy, towering over them mightily, just like the valiant wizards who dared to enter in. Krystal was one of those, as she had challenged Emma after questing the day before. Emma had accepted at Anna's beckoning. "Well, good luck," the tiger girl encouraged. "You're going to need it."
"Thanks?" Emma said. Issy laughed.
"Krystal won't be going easy on you. Hopefully you'll survive past the first round. I'll be watching just in case someone gets seriously hurt." Issy said. Emma gulped. Issy laughed again and placed a supportive hand on the Theurgist's shoulder.
"You'll be fine, go show her what you've got." Issy encouraged again. Emma nodded and walked into the arena. It looked like the colosseum straight out of Aquila. The lighting was dim, but she could make out the arena and the perilous drop that precided beside it. Krystal already stood on the opposite side of the arena, prepared for battle. "Stay calm, she can smell fear!" Issy wal
[W101] Eagle101- Chapter NineEmma blinked her eyes open. The images of the forest, strange people, and the eagle kept flashing througfh her mind. It was just a dream, she told herself. No matter how realistic and how great a coincidence, it was just a crazy dream. However, she couldn't ignore the lucid dream's real feelings.
She sat up and readied herself quickly. She still needed to talk to Ambrose. She knew that the eagle speaking to her was real, no matter how she looked at it. She just needed to make sense of it.
Emma quietly left the drom, careful not to wake sleeping Maddie. The courtyard of Ravenwood was empty except for a few students lingering around. The commons was just the same.
She walked up to Amrbose's door and rapped firmly. A few seconds later, the old wizard answered. "Good morning, Emma," He greeted her. "How can I help you?"
"I need to talk to you," She said.
"Oh?" He asked. "Come on in." He held the door open for her and she complied. They both took their seats like they had on h
Walter's Wrath - Part Three They dragged him back to the bedroom, where they were greeted with a surprised Riana. “Ria go look after Eli and Fleet,” Walter ordered, as they lifted James into his bed. “And don't touch the food,” he added.
Walter examined the situation. James had fallen unconscious, he had a high fever, and Kat looked worried. Kat looked really worried. She had the same look of terror on her face as the day of the fire. Her eyes were opened wide with fear and for once she looked uncertain. Her forever lasting certainty wavering was what worried Walter the most, it was merely wrong. Kat was confident if anything, and scared of almost nothing, so seeing her terrified and uncertain always felt wrong.
Though looking at James, Walter understood her concerns. His dark hair was plastered to his face, wet with sweat. He was breathing heavily and his eyes were moving erratically under his eyelids like he was having a nightmare. In other words he

When Will My Heart Heal (WIP)“Termonious, come on, wake up silly! We were going to play with Mercutio today, so you gotta wake up.” He recognized that voice, he had heard it so many times throughout his life how could not recognize it. It was her, with her short black hair and her bright green eyes. He had opened his eyes and let out a loud yawn as he sat up and stretched, almost hitting the girl who had been calling his name.
“Hey! Be careful Termonious, you almost hit me in the face with the top of your head.” He had laughed at that and grinned at her, pushing himself up off of the ground.
“Then maybe you shouldn’t hover over me like that, Adonia.” She had huffed at him in slight annoyance but couldn’t help but smile at him before grabbing his hand and pulling him along behind her. “Well, come on then! Mercutio won’t wait for us if we take too long!”
He could feel someone rubbing circles into his chest, the sensation slowly bringing him back from

“Hurry now, the show’s about to begin,” the Baron said.
The night finally came, the folks around were excited, obviously. Fiendish ghouls rose from their graves just to hear the howling of the wolves from the faraway hills, who in turn would soon gather around the Spider Queen to greet and receive her blessings. A momentous day for all creatures that haunted the night. Swarming like flies, yearning for a spectacle – a show.
“These creatures,” Mann said, “… oh god… they’re rising from the earth.”
“Why so aghast, dear friend?” Asked the Baron.
“I just do not understand… how this is possible?”
“I could explain it to you, but… you might refuse to believe it.”
“I beg to di…”
“Hush now, we better get inside to our seats. The show will begin shortly.”

Food and Fun at the Fair My family, Mom and Dad and I, were such rednecks.
We loved going to the maraposa fair. It was kind of cheap and tacky but we always had a good time there. Once I woke up early on the day of the fair and made French toast for breakfast. This was the day Mom and I went to the fair while Dad was home sick (he didn't really like the fair anyway). We got to see cows and pigs and birds. We watched a lame-o hypnotist and a really good Dixieland band. The day started out pretty good.
When lunch time finally came I got myself a jumbo corn dog smothered in ketchup and mustard, and Mom got some deep fried artichoke hearts. We both had large Pepsis too. When Mom bit into an artichoke heart it squirted pickle juice and grease all over her blowse.
Of course that made me curious and wanted to try one too. It was ok but it could have been better. For some reason Mom couldn't stand those artichoke hearts so she gave t
Hunting For Truth: Prologue Some battles leave scars that are seen. Others leave scars that are felt...
You think you have beaten me. You have not.
You think I fear you. I do not.
There is nothing you can do to me that I have not already endured. There is nothing you can say to me that I have not already heard. There is nothing you can take from me that I have not already lost.
My body has been broken before. My mind has been fractured. The ones I loved the most have been taken from me.
There is NOTHING left to fight me with. Not a sword. Not a rifle. Not a pistol, a spear, a dagger. No words can dissuade me.
You have NOTHING.
You say you see a way to win. I say you need to take the blinders from your eyes. You are fools if you think you can defeat me.
You say you are the only noble cause. I say you are all cowards. Nishum. You result to eggsnatching and bribery. You have tried to buy my loyalty by stealing my family. When that did not work,
A Forest On Fire - Chapter 28: The Morning Came
When the morning came, Lydia had readied their carriage on the side of the road. She looked upon it with such a potent feeling of indifference she surprised even herself. Lydia should have been feeling something. Victor and Oliver had escaped them for now; indeed, she should have been angry! Yet she could not shake this emptiness, this emotional rut Lydia found herself buried in. A part of her was annoyed. Still, she did not do a thing to change it. It might have been strange, coming on so suddenly, but she felt there was something more to happen, something larger. Pinpointing the sensation was like groping and stumbling in the dark in search of a light. There is a subtle idea of one, memories guiding your movements in its direction, but nothing is sure in the darkness. You know only vaguely where you are moving; nervous anticipation builds up in your chest, in your arms, in your legs, like water against a dam until you brush up against something, touch some
Antifascist chicThis is my collection of historical photographs of the best-dressed partisans and resistance fighters from the 1910s to 1940s.
This is the Revolutionary Insurrectionary Army of Ukraine, also known as the "Black Army", who fought for the Ukrainian anarchist warlord Nestor Makhno during the Russian Civil War. They also had an epic flag design, black with a piratical skull and crossbones and the words "Death to all who stand in the way of freedom for working people!" Nestor Makhno himself is often credited as the inventor of the "tachanka", a horse-drawn wagon with a belt-fed machine gun mounted in the back! These were used to provide fast and mobile automatic firepower before lighter automatic weapons were widely available, as well as to transport infantry squads.

The body tensing
Consuming it softly
All human reason
Pain creeps up
The throat suffocating
It transforms into
Into hate prevailing
A self-inflicted sickness
It twists the veins
Skin cracks under
Their revolting motions
Pain and hate
The soothing concoction
Awesomazing,The Earthling who Became a Jedi. part 1
A short time ago, in a place not so far away, there was a ten-year-old girl who watched Star Wars...
Grace Myers sat in front of her TV/VCR, her dark blue eyes fixed on the screen. She was just so awestruck by these movies. She loved the characters, especially the Jedi Knights. To her the Jedi were so wonderful, so skilled and so wise. She watched Obi-wan and Anakin chasing down the bounty hunter Zam Wessal. Something about the Jedi filled her with a sense of awe and wonder.
She was startled by her father's voice and quickly ejected the tape and changed the channel to My Little Pony Tails.
"Yeah Dad?" Grace said innocently.
He burst through her bedroom door. "I didn't hear Star Wars in here did I?"
"Nope, I think you may be imagining things." Grace replied, feigning innocence.

PeriwinkleShe was four months old sitting in the back seat with the most adorable toothless grin. Lilli made a delighted sound as the warm summer air blew in from the window and rushed over her face. She stretched her arms, her tiny fingers pointing out and up, up up! It was such a lovely moment, one that I will never forget.
I looked out and up and saw a sky naked of clouds, and a color that spoke volumes. Light blue with just a hint of lavender, feminine and soft yet bright.
It took me back to my four year old self on Christmas morning. Santa had brought me a Crayola Caddy with a hundred crayons. One by one I inspected each color until I came to periwinkle.
I had never seen the color and it was an incredible discovery.
It was the first of the box to be whittled down to a waxy stump and when I could no longer color with it I asked my mother for another box of crayons.
I had ninety-nine perfectly good crayons for coloring, she said, but the rest just weren’t the same. Violet-Blue was
Keep OnKeep running, keep fighting, keep smiling, keep moving on
Keep caring, keep snarking, keep flying, keep going on
Do what you know
in your heart is right
Never give up
no matter the fight
Do what makes you different
and your dreams will take flight
Remember through the hard times
that the future is bright
So no matter what happens
Of Guns and Bullets: A Bartender's WoeMr. Tulio came into the bar with his bodyguards, about five or six of them I think. I couldn’t believe it at first – the garment that he was wearing, an incredibly gaudy green suit and a white fedora, I could’ve sworn that it was some sort of oversized green disco ball when he came in. Anybody with an above average intelligence would’ve instantly noticed him and his gawky bodyguards storming in through the door.
I was cleaning the last of the newly washed glass when he came in and sat down at the bar, signaling at me.
“What will it be?” I asked him.
“Well, son…” the man said, “I believe I have an appointment with… one of your higher ups. So if you don’t mind then I’ll just be hanging around here ‘til your boss comes around. But a bottle of bourbon would be nice.”
But I did not move an inch from where I stood, which gave Mr. Tulio a strange look, he’s just a bartender, the man was prob

“I know I've struggled across the backs of murdered innocents to save humanity … but someone had to take the weight of that awful necessary crime [...]”

The final character type in the circle of heroes, anti-heroes, and villains is the anti-villain. This is the antagonist who seeks to thwart the hero for ethical, selfless, or idealistic reasons; and in the process he/she ends up bringing overall pa
Not By The NumbersLet's talk about the weight
of your beautiful, fragile body.
Not the number on the scale
meaningless and forbidden.
Let's talk about the weight of your arms
as you hug a loved one.
Or the heavy lids of tired eyes.
Your flesh being dragged across
your seemingly endless lifespan.
They weight of rocks in your bones
as you grow towards the heavens.
Your weight is so much more
than a number
