A Big Reflection A short blonde walked with a much taller brunette. Both were walking arm-in-arm, heading to a carnival. It was one of the oddest places the blonde had ever seen, but the brunette really just wanted to take her date there for a good time. A very fat man in a suit handed them a ticket, and they were on their way to a night of fun.A Big Reflection19 hours ago in Short Stories
"They might as well give us free admission, right Barb?" The blonde said, "It's like no one's here at all."
"To be fair, Kate, it's just an hour from closing. Besides...this way, we can have the place to ourselves."
Kate consented to this, and played along.
They played some of the games, rode attractions, and earned some prizes. However, just as their date was ending, Kate's eyes landed on a house of mirrors. She read all the stories about it in the news--stories that were far too strange to be believed. Barb walked over to the area, and gleefully smiled.

The Babadook ReviewThe Babadook Review13 hours ago in Reviews & Guides
You know, 2014 did seem like a good year for Horror films. Oculus, Honeymoon, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Creep. However much of these came from the independent film world as opposed to Hollywood churning these out. Which is fine because indie Horror films have been getting better with each passing year. The king of these however has to be the Australian Horror film The Babadook.
I was first introduced to this film when I read it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014, last year. I looked at the trailer and it seemed promising enough. So much so that it latched onto my most anticipated films of that year next to Godzilla and Guardians of the Galaxy. The problem however came from distribution. IFC got the US rights to distribute the film but apparently their distribution methods kind of suck and my local theater or any other one that I could go to had the film. But what kills me is that Saving Christmas was often ordered for more screenings than The Babadook. Something I

TRANSFORMERS Chapter 1: Arrival to Earth
One million years before the dawn of man. Our planet was destroyed by the ravages of war. A war between those who worship chaos and those of us who follow freedom. We battled for rule of a supreme power... the Cube, which bears the life force of our race. But the Cube was lost to the limitless stars.
Then, by fortune or fate, it's course was altered... to Earth.
Every thousand solar years, the Cube calls to us. We have searched for it endlessly, hoping to find it before the dark legions.
But as fate would have it, we were already too late.

Spooky Toon Reviews - Scardy PantsWelcome to another Spooky Toon review! Now, Spongebob is show that actually has allot of episodes that are good for watching around Halloween time. Such as Ghoul Fools" which I might also review, "Graveyard Shit" and much more, but I don't think anything can top the original Spongebob Halloween special "Scardy Pants"Spooky Toon Reviews - Scardy Pants1 day ago in Reviews & Guides
This episode aired during the shows' first season back in 1999 and it's probably one of the spngebob episodes that gets aired the least. I remember when I was around 9 years old this episode only got aired twice around Halloween and I was always excited to see it. Sadly its sister episode "I was A Teenage Gary" is often criticized for being a bad episode, but I personally like that episode. I might give it a review as well, because I find it an underrated episode.
That aside, I'm going to get on to the review!
The episode opens with the narrator talking about Halloween and we see some pretty cool stuff, like a skeleton ghost pirate, a spider, wearing goggles and a big Jack
The Manor Ch.1 (ReaderxReclusive!Russia)The Manor Ch.1 (ReaderxReclusive!Russia)8 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
The house at the end of lane had been standing for as long as anyone could remember. It was there before the graveyard, before the church, before the docks were constructed or the houses raised. It almost seemed like part of the landscape, as huge and foreboding as an unforgiving mountain range. It had seemed, to many, that the house stood empty for many many years, so many years in fact, that it was believed to be haunted. Some said that on particularly stormy nights, you could hear the ghosts wailing along with the wind.
But that was a tale for children, to keep them from straying too close. The fact of the matter was that The Manor, as it was come to be called, was very much inhabited. But that didn’t make it any less creepy. Stories and rumors, as superstitious townsfolk are want to create, swirled as to who the mystery inhabitants were, as only one soul was ever seen going in or coming out of the estate. &

How come you ever thought that it's me?
I am not that person who appears in his art forms.
I am not his model, nor do I consider that I am somewhere in his heart at all.
I do not think I can ever be a part of his artistic expression.
I know few things about him, that is why I know it's not me.
I know a lot of things about myself, that is why I know it's not me.
And I know how things doesn't work with us.
And even if that were the case,
I would have prefer thinking, that it's not me.
I don't want to see it that way.
It's utterly disappointing if it was me.
Because all those things meant that I was just a form of inspiration.
Just like that, an inspiration not even worth knowing that I was the person.
There was no high form of courage nor bravery in that,
And that's something I will never admire.
So I rather believe that it's not me.
However, I do admire how he does his own thing,
But I do not admire him romantically as a man.
I only see him as I should and as how I see

Reader Reviews: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell*Warning! I go on a little bit too long in this review.*Reader Reviews: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell19 hours ago in Reviews & Guides
Hellooo, everybody! Welcome to Reader Reviews! A place where we review the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to literature! Today, I'm going to review Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, a very fantastic, interesting book that I, personally, really enjoyed reading.
The story is about a 18-year-old girl named Cather, who is begins college with her twin sister, Wren. The two are usually inseparable and look out for one another. That is, until Wren decides that it would be best for them to go their own separate ways at the start of college, refusing to share a dorm room with Cather, and spends the majority of the book getting drunk and hanging out with random strangers at parties.
Cather is, understandably, torn up by having her best friend and sister pretty much abandon her, but tries to do her best to make new friends, despite the fact that she is really shy and a quiet book reader. There is, however, one thing she loves wit

Insignificants. I always found it fascinating that there was a race so similar to mine, but so much smaller. I was pretty young when I found out that my mom was a Gatherer of such beings, so this piqued my interest even more. But she never let me near them.
I remember she said there was never a reason to get attached to one.
We kept Insignifcants as pets. I guess it made sense. Insignificants were small enough to fit in our hands, and they couldn't speak our language. They needed one of us to survive.
I always wanted one.
I liked the idea of protecting something so small when the world seemed so large already. I always thought I would make a good owner. I wouldn't expect a lot from an Insignificant. I just wanted a little friend, but of course mom was against it. I guess as a Gatherer she knew things about Insignificants that I didn't, but that didn't make me want one any less.
I couldn't understand how some of my

“Y’know what’s weird about this place?” Tony asks as he warms his hands over the fire. He is the only one not roasting a marshmallow, which is a given since he threw his stick into the campfire after burning three of the gooey confections in a row. He never was much of a cook, but seriously, that took a special level of culinary incompetence.
Still, the trip is going well, all things considered. It’s good to get out of the suburbs and get back to nature once in a while. Or just goof around in the forest, it’s all good. The town (more like a hamlet, in actuality) of Kensport is the closest inhabited site, and even that place seemed appropriately sleepy. It’s a wonderful area to sever one’s

Standing in front of the portal to my home, I remember my time here with him. Even though I had used him, he still refused to leave my side.
Link, when did I fall in love with you? Was it when you accepted me after I told you my story? Or when you tried to protect me from Zant? Or maybe it was when you risked your life to save mine? I don't really know. But I did truly love you.
The last time I saw you, I attempted to save you from Ganondorf. I really tried to save you and Princess Zelda, but when I saw her running towards me with tears in her eyes, all alone. I knew you were gone.
It had taken everything you had to defeat Ganondorf, including your life. With his last bit of strength, he had thrust his sword through your chest.
I wanted to see you one last time. Just see you smile and tell me it would be alright, like you always had. But I was too late. You w

I'm going to be honest with you, my friend because I just don't have it in me to lie to you. I think I'd feel too guilty afterwards. Not a lot people extend that offer to me, whether it's because I'm too emotional or for other reasons that I just can't grasp onto. But I suppose it could be my fault too. I tend to push people away when they do make such offers to me. I just kind of brush them off with a smile, telling them that I'm fine, that I don't need to talk. It's all lies. Deep down there's something that wants to scream and cry until the pain goes away, even though it's only for a brief time. But you on the other hand, offer it to me so casually and with this air that just makes me melt. You always tell me to do it when I'm comfortable and I keep wondering,
"When am I ever uncomfortable around you?"
There are days I wonder if I make you uncomfortable, whether it's wh
October-a-Thon 3 - The People Under the StairsSince Wes Craven’s attempt to give Universal a franchise in 1989 failed, he decided to make a movie he wanted to make and Universal, despite the unimpressive box office results of “Shocker,” backed him up on it. Craven found inspiration in a news article describing police responding to a break-in at a house where the authorities found children locked up in their bedrooms, never permitted to go outside by their parents.October-a-Thon 3 - The People Under the Stairs4 hours ago in Reviews & Guides
Critics at the time of the film’s release gave the film mixed ratings at the time, but since then, it’s grown with audiences, with many citing it to be the first Wes Craven film they ever saw (being that it came out in 1991, I imagine most 80s kids would probably have seen it in theaters. Maybe, I dunno, I wasn’t born yet. But I do know that after Wes Craven passed away, hundreds of blogs and face books posts from online critics and film-makers, most notably “Shaun of the Dead” director Edgar Wright (Read his eulogy here: h
The Harvest ReviewThe Harvest Review21 hours ago in Reviews & Guides
This is Rumor Control and I humbly welcome you back to the 31 Days of Halloween. Netflix is a real funny place isn’t it? You’ll spend countless minutes searching for a movie and every so often you’ll pass something over and over again without giving it a second thought. Perhaps the image is unappealing, perhaps the description sounds dull or perhaps even it looks like cheap, direct to video crap. That was the case for me with today’s film The Harvest. Earlier this month I passed it time and again not taking any care in it until I realized that it starred Michael Shannon, not only that but Michael Shannon playing someone other than a villain (don’t get me wrong the man makes a damn good villain but sometimes it’s nice to see him do other things). Seeing it was a horror film I gave it a watch and… Well it is interesting and I don’t regret watching it that’s for sure.
The story for The Harvest is rather odd. The story follows Katherine

It was half past midnight in Amanda's home and everyone where in their beds except for the young teenager who was at her computer typing another story. Everything was silent in the small house except for the dogs barking outside and the puppies whimpering every now and then that would cause her grandmother to complain in the morning hours. Outside a dark figure crept along the walls every once in awhile stopping as it looked down its long coat and blew a gust of warm air down to soothe whatever it had. The dogs would have barked at it and cause a huge ruckus but they silently nodded and went about their buissness knowing full well of what the figure could do to them. It finally went to the window and vanished in a gust of pure black smoke and reappeared behind Amanda who was almost finished with her story. "What's up kid? Why are you not in bed?" B

Some time had passed since Wing and Saber had arrive at Dream Garden. It was another sunny day at the ocean as Sly stood up on deck and stared out to the deep blue water. He knew he had ordered the crew to head to Dream Garden (Through they ran across some other pirate crews and a few old shipwrecks along the way) but he was having second thoughts about it. Dream Garden was a well known kingdom, one of the most powerful in the world. The crew would most likely be gunned down the second the truth about them were revealed. And the last thing he wanted was to lose anyone close to him again.
The memory was still clear, no matter how many times he tried to push it away. Sly and Sarah were just little kids when their parents were murdered by a being they only say small shadows of as they hid in the closet. Course, the guards of their home kingdom wasn’t to surprise.

Being a man is being tough. It’s having calloused hands and wind burned cheeks. It’s working from the crack of dawn until after the moon rises. It’s about sweating and breaking your back and getting dirty. It’s about speaking your mind without reservation or concern for what that does. It’s about being strong and thick-headed, making sure that words never truly reach you, and your words never really mean anything. It’s about having a beer at every meal and drinking your coffee black. It’s about being as similar to a rock as you can be.
But there’s more to it than that.
Women are taught to be concerned about their looks, but men can get away with a grimier appearance, so long as provision is mad

I've been an athiest for years, and one thing I've run into time and again is hate and bigotry. "You don't follow god, so you must worship Satan!" Um, no. I don't believe in Satan either. I don't believe in heaven/hell, angels/demons or the tooth fairy. I believe that when you die, nothing happens. "Then why do anything good?" Because it's the right thing to do.
A REALLY big misconception is no god = no morals. Not so. I have morals, they're just not determined by a sky wizard that wipes out the planet in a world-class hissy fit. "Thou shalt not kill"- god is a GIGANTIC hypocrite. A few people piss him off and he wipes them ALL out. It's this hypocrisy that makes me scratch my head.
