I have stared giants in the eye, have sunk through bleached reefs where sharks bleed, have split my sides open to let out some of the sadness welling in my chest. I count days with her mouth as the sundial, I rotate like the shadows of great pines, I am sick of writing about depression. I want to write about her instead.
Her, with teeth plucked from the jaws of fierce bears, eyes that have stared at the sun for too long, fingers worn down to the bone from feeling too much, fighting too much, healing too little. Her, that is healing now, re-stitching her seams and rediscovering th
Catwoman's Delicious Duo (Vore)Catwoman prowled the buildings of Gotham city, travelling towards Wayne Manor. Ever since she ate the batman, there had been a rampant search for missing billionaire Bruce Wayne. This could only mean that Bruce was Batman all along, but it meant something more than that to Catwoman. It meant that his tasty looking sidekicks would be in the legendary bat cave. She knew now that it was somewhere around Wayne manor, all she needed to do was find it. She searched the lower areas of the manor until she came to a waterfall. She examined it, finding that the rock behind the fall was metal. She found the cave! She used a prying device to pull the doors open and she strutted inside, hoping to find some tasty treats.Catwoman's Delicious Duo (Vore)11 hours ago in Short Stories
She looked up to a high ledge, a landing point for the batwing by the looks of it, and fired her grappling hook towards it. She zipped upwards on the line so she was just above the main bat computer. She ducked behind some storage crates as she heard Robin burst through the door.

By the time Luigi got up that morning, Daisy had already left. Also on his desk was two letters, one in an envelope and the other on a sheet of paper.
He yawned, sat up, threw the covers off of himself and then just as he stood up he felt nauseous and bolted for the bathroom. “Bleeeaaaaaggghhh! Cough cough... Raaaauuuuuggghhh!” Luigi cried as he vomited up the soup he had just ate last night. “This is so annoying!” He growled after he was finished and had flushed the toilet. He then headed out to the bedroom and picked up the sheet of paper first.
“Dear Sweet Luigi...

Bill was a short and very portly man with long blonde hair who was working as a back stage helper for a brand new play about an angel who visited Earth and ends up falling in love with the male co-star, the usual crappy romance stuff that Bill hated but he needed the money and set design was easy, or so he thought. However recently there were rumors spreading around that Chloe, the lead actress had gotten deathly ill and would be unable to play her part, Bill hoped she would get better but didn't really care since he got paid for the set design already and was only helping on stage for a little bit more cash. On the day before the play the director approached Bill with a worried look on his face
"hey Bill...I've got some bad news, Chloe won't be able to make it to the show and we are all out of options" the director said with his hands in his pockets

The Cutie Re-Mark - ReviewThe Cutie Re-Mark - Review15 hours ago in Reviews & Guides
As usual with my reviews, it will contain spoilers. Those of you who have not watched the episode yet, you have been warned.
The premise for this story is that Starlight Glimmer, vengeful after her defeat by Twilight and her friends, conjures a spell that could change Equestria’s history forever.
So, here we are, the season finale. And we start things off by having the episode make good on a concept that I have long hoped the series would explore more; time travel. Ever since it was introduced back in season two’s “It’s About Time”, I have very much looked forward to the day when the show would explore this concept more. It’s a massive idea that this kind of power, to go into the past and even potentially alter the way things play out, was brought up only to be ignored in succeeding episodes. Although Twilight herself hoped to use it at the time to make a big change to the way things went for her, nobody else in the show ever commented on it or how b

She jumped on the spring board and leapt to the first bar, spinning around it like a wheel. She turned her body around at different angles as she went round and round the bar.

The next thing she felt was vinyl slapping her face as she crashed onto the mat. She had not reached the second bar.
Her coach helped her up. “Not your best, though I’m sure you know that.” he said, writing on a piece of paper attached to his clipboard. He twisted his head towards the line of girls waiting to run to the springboard. “Next!”

What started as short stories on newspapers during World War II transformed into the birth of a concept known as a superhero. Beings with powers limited only by human imagination and the creativity of their creators. We all know about Marvel and DC, two companies at each others throat, which lead them to making some of the most iconic superheroes and supervillains of all time, and each decade giving them stories to tell.
Naturally since the medium has evolved over the years and gotten attention from the public eye, comic book characters have now been getting their own films a lot more frequently. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is excellent proof of how well you can make comic book movies (Mostly...), and even DC can make some pretty good ones as well. (The Dark Knight Trilogy anyone?)
With the recent trailer for Captain America: Civil War, comic book movies are only gonna deliver more and more hype, regardless of the quality of the movie itself...

Steven Universe - ReviewSteven Universe is a show on Cartoon Network that takes place in Beach City, and it centers around a young boy named Steven, who lives with three magical beings called the Crystal Gems. They are referred to as Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl. Together, they go on adventures and fight anything that is a threat to human life. All while Steven is trying to unlock the powers of his own gem that he has on his stomach that he inherited from his mother, former leader of the Crystal Gems.Steven Universe - Review14 hours ago in Reviews & Guides
Right now, Steven Universe is one of my favorite shows of all time. I have watched every single episode since it aired. Hell, I immediately got hooked onto it before it was even aired. That's because Rebecca Sugar, one of the writers and artists behind Adventure Time, is the creator of this show. So, I pretty much knew from the get-go that this was gonna be good. Once I saw the first episode, I wanted more. Almost each and every episode had me smiling. There's a sort of genuine sweetness to this show that I found

The rest of the night was filled with stories and laughs, cheers and smiles. Evan was finally starting to relax, now back beside Xeon. many different nagas came to Xeon, bowing deeply to him with their hand over their heart. They all gave him wonderful wishes and greetings, welcoming him back. Some even took their time to introduce themselves to Evan, which he was a bit surprised at.
The food was fantastic. After the weeks he had eaten nothing but beef, it was good to have something else. The sweets were worthy of celebration on their own. Every time someone came by with sweets, Evan was eager to take a few. The wine was wonderful as well, even better then any Evan had in his castle.
At one point, Xeon even managed to get up and wander off, waving Evan to follow him. Evan hesitated, but did get up and chase after him. Several nagas approached Xeon, huge smiles on their faces. All of their pointed teeth were showing.

His first impression of her is not auspicious: a red-headed girl with messy hair and vivid cinnamon freckles and the wildest grin he has ever seen, capering around the corner of the sidewalk and knocking him flat on the ground.
"Oh!" she says. She grabs him by the arm and hauls him up. "I'm sorry."
He mumbles something under his breath, making to leave.
"No, wait!" she says. She refuses to let go of his arm. "I really am sorry. I'm new here, and I think I've gotten lost. Think you could bring me back to where I live?"
He swallows and carefully forms the words. "Just turn the corner. Go straight."
"What?" she says, very loudly—unnecessarily so, he thinks, with a wince. "What did you say? You're very quiet, aren't you?"
As if in response, his lungs seem to constrict. The next words he has to force out, even quieter than before. "Please leave me alone."

“So now do you see why books are hated and feared? They show the pores in the face of life. The comfortable people want only wax moon faces, poreless, hairless, expressionless.” (Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451)
Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian book, one in which the setting is placed in a corrupt imaginary future, usually with a dehumanizing change in the government, resulting in an undesirable reality. Where all books have become contraband, and any citizen who is found possessing them can be incarcerated or worse. Guy Montag, the main character, is a fireman. Who in this parallel universe, do not save scriptures from fire, but instead, burnt them. Later, Montag attempts to overturn the misconception that printed book is corruptive and causes civil disobedience. This novel, the brainchild of Ray Bradbury, is considered superb literature because it contains Faber’s three laws for quality literature: quality information, leisure of digest, and the right to c

Bio-Bytes Review: Four years before Skylanders would hit the market, this failure shows up first:
Hello guys, another review of mine since I'm having a bit of difficult setting some things up regarding updating Truth and Ideals as of the last few days. This time for something different, though.
So basically you guys are all familiar with Skylanders, yes? TKNRKRGaim has said many things about why he hates Skylanders, but let me assure you, that series at least has professional work and handling behind it when compared to Bio-Bytes, an electronic handheld game which had water tank cartridges for various animals in which you could take into battle against other enhanced animals. Considering one of the things I intend to use my New 3DS XL for is the Amiibo Figures for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, I figured I'd need to review this type of game to properly prepare for making my judgment regarding that.
Right off the bat, when you buy the handheld unit itself, you'll notice it comes in t

His girlfriend Anna watched him mournfully from the kitchen table. “He's so obsessed with Predator Park,” she mumbled to Randall's sister, Morgan.
Morgan sighed, glancing over at her brother. “Most people are, and it used to be doing such great things. Now it's become like a theme park...”
Randall jumped up, nearly toppling his chair. “Here he is!” He gripped the sides of the computer. “It's...”
A great big red “X” flashed across the screen and Randall threw himself back in the chair. “Oh, I would never have done it that way! Some of these people are so stupid! P

There was something in the air; an electric tingle, a thick haze of pheromones. It was rutting season, and all across the plains bulls of all species were vying for mating rights. This was a dangerous time of year. Driven into a frenzy by their hormones, young bulls were eager to vent their frustrations on anything they could find. Preoccupied with the primordial urge to continue their genetic legacy, they became easy pickings for hungry predators. Many bachelors would not live to see the next migration.
The clear springtime air was shattered by a deep brassy honk, and two mountains of flesh and bone collided. Forgetting their audience, the two bulls trumpeted and sla
