His name is Alfred. Alfred Mayes Thrillerson.
I came up with his last name on Halloween in 2012. Before that it was Alfred Middleton, but then Kate Middleton came along in the news so I decided to change it to something more original. I gave him the middle name Mayes so I could remember what month his birthday's in. I created him some time in May 2012, and placed his birthday on the 16th.
I got his first name, Alfred, from the main character of the cartoon The Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog. I'm not sure how well known the show is. It doesn't air outside of Canada. (I was actually surprised by the amount of fanart I found) I was looking for a name that wasn't to wacky, but also one I had never heard anyone with before. (My life consists of a lot of names; I wanted something original) But anyway, more about Alfred as a person.
"You talkin' about me?"
"Yes, Alfred, I'm telling the Deviants about you."
"What? I wouldn't trust anyone online, if I were you."
Once NecessaryFrom a young age, she always looked the same. A tangled mass of blonde, hazel eyes glued to the print of a story. She was once asked why she was always reading and the answer was simple. Print was easier then People.Once Necessary21 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
She learned in a hard way to hide her legs. Dead and dried skin cracked it's way along her calves and shins, stopping at her dried knees, only to turn into Braille on her thighs. Jeans turned into necessity and the skirts and dresses she loved were pushed to the side and she forgot that she even liked them.
The calming effect of reading was negated by a series of horrible math teachers, all speaking in a flurry of a language that she had chosen to take but could never learn how to say. Her grades plummeted and she left the class, only to become the person kids stared at in the halls.
Her mind grew fast, her body grew slow. Bigger books, longer novels. She watched as the people around her showed their colors and she was afraid. Afraid of what they would say and what would h

THE HOST: The once cozy, lived-in home had turned into a place that resembled a model display. There was not a throw pillow out of place in the painstakingly organized living room, and not a speck of dust dared reveal itself to be upon the impeccably dusted tables and shelves. The windows were washed so completely that no one would have been surprised if an unfortunate bird met its untimely end upon the crystalline glass pane. The kitchen was, though bustling with activity, as pristine as ever, the stainless steel surfaces reflecting light onto the dark granite countertops whereupon the food for the evening sat, ready to be placed.
The hostess herself, however, was of another demeanor altogether. Her strikingly haggard appearance was the antithesis of the environment, with her disheveled chocolate hair thrown into a ha
Legend of Zelda - The Tetraforce of Creation The people of Hyrule belive that there are only three parts of the Triforce, with each part going to the person the Triforce decides has the best out of the three qualities: Power, Wisdom, and Courage. The Triforce of Courage resides in Link. The Triforce of Wisdom resides in Zelda. And the Triforce of Power resides in Ganondorf (AKA Ganon). However, they are all wrong. Even the Royal Hylian Family doesn't know about it. What exactly? The Tetraforce.Legend of Zelda - The Tetraforce of Creation6 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The Tetraforce is the true Triforce that no one knows about. As it turns out, there are three Goddesses. The fourth Goddess is known as Cinitre. Cinitre is the Goddess that created the three Goddesses themselves. As such, she is the most powerful of the four. As for the piece of the Tetraforce, it is the piece of Creation. The Tetraforce of Creation resides in Aaron. Born in Hyrule, Aaron knew that he was special in someway,

That was such a waste of time, really. Maybe some will find the social life of human cells interesting, but I had other things in mind. And the teacher was too good for her own good I (almost) pity her. She had two distinct methods of examination – orally and with some strange hand-written tests she thought up herself. The former was easy to deal with – I just read from the textbook. Now, she didn't allow us to do that, in fact the textbook should've been hidden from view and it was, but the notebook covering it had tendencies to go places when she wasn't looking. And the rest of the Group often provided her with distractions to make that possible.
Now those tests were another story altogether. They weren't hard but I didn't really had the habit of reading anything (in fact, I never studied at all). And that created a problem. As I mentioned before, they were hand-made so the word of the Tsar bore no power over them. Standard methods of cheating didn't work ei
Secret"I hate my life, I hate my life, I hate my life....."she said as a mob of Kim's friends pushed Jaina towards her, Jaina looked completely shocked and extremely awkward as she had just found out who had a crush on her. "I-I'm sorry..." Syd said with her head down and a hand over her face, "Just say it." Jaina said quietly, "I-I umm..." Syd looked up at her, tears running down her face, she opened her mouth to try and say it again but Jaina stopped her, "Obviously you're not ready, and I'm not either, say it when you're ready." She took a few steps back before turning and walking away. Kim's friends looked slightly scared as Syd turned her attention towards them, "WHY THE HECK DID YOU TELL HER!?!?"she yelled, Kim, the worst person alive, emerged from the back of the group, somehow she found out. She smirked at Syd, "My idea, how did you like it?" Syd let out a growl and lunged at her, knocking her onto the ground, a few a Kim's friends pulled Syd off of her before she could punch her, KiSecret2 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

“Ae fond kiss, and then we sever; Ae farewell, alas, forever!
Deep in the heart wrung tears I'll pledge thee, Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!
Who shall say that Fortune grieves him, While the star of hope she leaves him?
Me, nae cheerful twinkle lights me, Dark despair around benights me.”
One kiss more, then we must part; a "goodbye" everlasting!
Me, I am without a merry light, as black sorrow gathers and surrounds me.

I find it interesting the mixed reactions I get when people find out I have been dieting and exercising. Some people scoff and mutter something about eating whatever they want because “we’re all gonna’ die eventually”. Some jokingly ask if I “have anorexia or something.” (That is a whole other issue that bothers me, but that’ll be another log.) Still, other people are proud of me and tell me I look great. One of my underclassmen friends even told me she noticed a difference, but didn’t want to mention it at first because she didn’t want to offend me.
Getting such a varied opinion on a personal decision I made was a bit shocking. People will notice my containers of fruit and whole grain sandwiches and accusingly ask if I am on a diet. I never thought anyone would notice or care. The situa

I blinked my eyes open. How early was it?
“It’s too early for all that noise,” my mother groaned, rolling out of bed to answer the door. I turned back over, covering my face with the cool comforter. I must’ve fallen asleep in her bed after watching the ball drop. It was the New Year, 2007.
I heard the front door open and close. It must be someone trying to sell something, I thought. How rude of them, considering the holiday and the hour. A few minutes later the door creaked open and closed again and I heard several sets of footsteps in the foyer.
Mom walked into the bedroom. “Meggie? It’s time to wake up sweetie. I need you to come into the living room.”
“What? Why?” I said, unhappy with being asked to leave the warmth of the bed. I didn’t notice her tone at first but when she spoke again I knew something was amiss.

My friends and I play this game all the time! It’s called “catch phrase,” and you can play it in a multitude of different ways. One, you can buy the board game or electronic version (my preference), download a knock-off app for your phone, or write out little slips of paper and draw them from a hat. The gist of the game is like the prompt: describe the word you have (on your card/screen/paper) to your teammates without saying the word or any part of the word. Whichever team reaches 7 points first are the champions!

...Rather Than Walking Barefoot to Heaven.
Personally I would think people about to undergo a major transition, like moving from one place to the other, would try to exercise a bit more economy, and behave with a little more decorum during a period of uncertain transition.
I myself have been a little more careful in my spending lately, which has proven wise since, because of this move, I have incurred some unusual expenses, so it was good that I had some extra petty cash on hand to deal with them.
If that toothless, crack whore retard 'Sandra', in 404 is any indication, these people don't even have the common wisdom to prepare themselves in unusual circumstances. I suppose they are used to trusting other people to do what needs to be done for them. They are all like young children in adult bodies, these people. We have a fast growing class of this sort, who are very used to living among things that don't belong to them, but rather, are provided for their use, and passively let others d
