Napoleon Bonaparte: Hero or VillainDuring the French Revolution, Napoleon Bonaparte led the French military in wars against France’s enemies of the Revolution. He was considered France’s hero and was adored by the population of the country for his victories in the wars. After the French Revolution, Bonaparte was crowned as emperor of France in 1804 and is still considered to be the most famous emperor of Europe. In the beginning, Napoleon committed heroic acts through religion, economics, and sociability, but as soon his reign as emperor began, so did the villainous acts such as the restoration of slavery, limited liberty or censorship, and his desire to expand to his grand empire throughout Europe.Napoleon Bonaparte: Hero or Villain1 month ago in Profiles More Like This

Vincent looked at Sheldon. “Aren’t you gonna get him back?” Napoleon laughed. “He couldn’t get me back even if he tried!” Sheldon sneered and walked off and finally sitting down on the porch. Suddenly feeling rain on his head, he looked up to see a pink cloud. Cotton candy cloud? Chocolate milk rain? Only one explanation for that; and that was Discord. Sheldon smiled. “I thought I’d cheer you up with some cotton candy and chocolate milk, before pranking everyone that is.” Discord smirked

Dauntless ~ Chapter 1 Bastille made his way to the cafeteria, it was breakfast. Piper was hot on his heels, her wavy black hair touching his shoulder as she caught of up with him. He was walking fast to get his breakfast over with, partially because Piper never shut up. He turned his bruised face to her, his hazel eyes connecting with the girl's dark brown ones.

They came to a silver metal table, muffins set up on the table in a weaved basket. Older Dauntless members sat at the edge, making just enough room for the two. There was the option of getting eggs, but Bastille didn't feel like waiting in line. His eyes dropped to the blueberry muffins, his right hand picking one up. He sat down on the cold metal bench, "It happened three days ago. Get over it!" Despite Bastille reassuring himself that no one would care as it was in the past, but he was noticing the eyes wand
Revolutions of Pearl Moon: Prologue You have come to the forest at a good time, traveler. It’s the tenth anniversary of a day my fellow wolves struck back against their unjust rulers. Indeed, you arrived here at the right time.Revolutions of Pearl Moon: Prologue2 weeks ago in Short Stories More Like This
But at the wrong place.
The mountains are my home, traveler. If you are looking for the Pearl Moon Pack, you would find them at the plains, a hop, skip, and three-mile run away from here. But me, I’m just fine up here on Mt. Rime. I don’t want anything to do with the festivities. They only remind me of a time when I was once ashamed of my pack.
…But that doesn’t mean I’m not willing to show you the way. Come on. Follow me.
By the way, my name is Aris. I was one of the best hunters in the Pearl Moon Pack. Now I am a lone wolf bound to a life on a lone mountain.
So, you ask how my life came to be. Heh. Here’s a question for you, traveler.
Are you ready to listen to an extraordinary tale?

You see, traveler, we’ve done it. We now live in a new pack where we had equal rights and, best of all, no Lord or Lady to stop us. We must be doing the right thing, for the rains have brought the herds back.
The Pack Assembly has disbanded as sworn by our unbreakable oath. Newly formed was the Wolf Assembly—the lawmaking body of Pearl Moon.
Now this assembly had a curious seating arrangement when we gathered in the meeting cave: those who supported Heath were the Right; those who distrusted him and wanted to continue the revolution sat at the Left; the moderates comprised a large group in the Center. The Left itself was divided into two groups. The Granites wanted to eliminate the lordship altogether. The Bronzes wanted to involve the pack in a war that would discredit the lordship and exte
