MessagesShe raised herself slowly, timid, without a voice. Others spoke. She listened, thought long about the things they said. About the things he said. If he ever addressed her directly, she lowered her eyes, deferential and in awe of a father larger than life. She followed in the orbiting footsteps of mother, sisters - worshippers of this proud Apollo of the South.Messages3 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
The Navy gave her a voice in 1942. Women would decode submarine messages and she would be among the first - an ensign in the inaugural class of WAVES. She spoke with clever fingers, penciling and erasing, her own system for making sense of the undersea ciphers. After the war, she turned her skills to railroad signaling. She waved paper warnings for passing engineers. One train per track. The system as true as its operator. No mistakes, no margin for error.

I ran up the stairs and found Emma laid on her bed reading a comic and after saying hello to each other i asked what we could play. Emma suggested dressing up and proceeded to pull a large box out from the bottom of her wardrobe and removed the lid. It was full of costumes, shoes and cheap jewelry and we excitedly pulled everything out trying to decide what to wear. Emma chose a witches outfit and then handed me a white fairy dress, all silk and lace with little wings attached to the back saying ‘try this’. We both undressed and put on the dresses.

As my professor speaks, a vivid image unfolds in my mind.
I crouch in the underbrush amid a stand of trees, staring across the vast steppes at a shoal of enormous flying salmon. My eyes fix on my quarry: the largest of the lot, at least five meters in length, with the full text of the Dao De Jing inscribed in delicate characters across its scales, a gleam of Humeshine glinting off its eye in the cool evening light.
I shift my weight forward and ready my fishing spear. A net, not nearly large enough, hangs over my shoulder. I’m sweating in the full camo that I’ve not washed in days.
My mission is to rescue Major Sartre from the bowels of the beast, then consume its knowledge and thereafter its flesh in glorious victory. The fish is just out of range; I’ll have to leave the cover of the foliage to make the shot.
I burst from the shrubbery, spear raised, never once gla

I've learned a lot from him, but I think most of all I've learned from the things my grandmother has told me about him, and some things he's said as well. I'd like to share some of these things with you guys and encourage you to appreciate the heroes in your life as well.
Grandpa grew up in a cabin deep in the bush. His father was Ojibwe, and his mother was as well, though her father was Scottish, so she wasn't full-blood. He has three other siblings, but there should be ten of them; six died very young. They lived with a lot of their extended family; there were a lot of aunts, uncles and cousins staying in the same house.
When he was five, he had a fever that was so bad it left him with one side severely reduced in terms of motor control. All of his family made fun of

My Art JourneyAs some of you may already know, I have been into old cars and old derelict places all my life. Where it all started, was in kindergarten, where I made as close to a kindy can get to a Smart Car, predating the Smart Fortwo/Swatch Car by a couple years, from an old stove box, and did some ornate inside-out details, and created numerous sci-fi cities that in retrospect looked a lot like Coruscant and Mos Eisley from Star Wars. For those along with being allowed to take a product design class for 4th/5th grade under the condition my 4th-grader cousin wouldn't help me (I created an Amazing Crash Dummies cereal box, that being my favorite cartoon as a little one), and being an ace student in the all-ages resource room, I won my first achievement award. Sadly my dad recycled that award LONG ago, and after 20 years, the projects are long gone too.My Art Journey2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Adventures of the Dead End The sun sets slowly behind the cold stone houses. Hues of orange and yellow melt across the pavement, fading into shadows as the mountain lingers above. A dog barks in the distance, irritated by the sound of footsteps across the abandoned sidewalks, the silence temporarily broken. Seven pairs of legs scamper as quietly as possible through the streets, towards the back of the neighborhood where no one walked. Seven pairs of eyes dart nervously around, checking the perimeter for any signs of life, for any chance of being caught, but there were none. Seven faces look to each other as they move, sharing thoughts with a glance. Seven minds churned their gears, the sound loud in their ears but silent to any one else, if there had been any one else.Adventures of the Dead End12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Background: Standing at 8 in (28 cm) and weighing under 10 oz (283 g), Kirby is a Star Warrior of an unknown species. His age is unknown, as he is 200 year pre-maturing. As a citizen of Dream Land, he has an infant-like and cheerful demeanor.
Arsenal: Kirby's body is malleable, allowing him to stretch his body into any shape or form. He can inhale almost anything (excluding large and heavy objects). He can fly, use the Air Bullet, a Slide Kick, and can summon Helpers. His personal form of transportation is the Warp Star, allowing him to fly in the sky and space at speeds faster than light. If it is destroyed, Kirby can create a new one on his own, as it is forged from his own energy. Kirby's stomach is an entirely separate dimension, allowing him to trap thousands of victims in this abyss, and draw from his victims powers using his Copy Ability (he likely projects an astral image of himself within the dimension which can act on the physical plain).

However, after being killed by Bi Han (Sub Zero,), he woke up in the Netherrealm (AKA Hell). Enraged that Sub-Zero apparently killed his wife and son (he's innocent by the way), he then made a deal with the sorcerer Quan Chi (who was actually the man who killed his wife and son): In exchange for loyalty, he was resurrected as a phantom of the Netherrealm. His combat styles include Ninjutsu, Pi Gua, Hapkiido, and Moi Fah. He strongly prefers foes to come to him, and is creator Ed Boon's favorite character.
