My crimson eyes fight to stay open; they want to snap shut so bad right now. My armor is heavy on me and threatens to drag me back down on the makeshift blanket pile I consider a bed. Treble nuzzles my hand, trying to keep me moving. That's a good idea. Keep moving. Even if it's just scratching behind Treble's ear.
Treble gives a soft whine as though to ask me if I'm okay. He knows I'm not; he can see it in my eyes. He knows they're dulled so much. My petting is weak too. I know it is. He's moving himself under my hand to try to help me. Oh Treble...
It's just so warm...Please forgive me Treble. I need to sleep it off...
He's nuzzling me down and now he's got his paws on my chest, howling. Who is he trying to get? I'm okay, Treble. I'm just warm and s

Rey pounded Pat against the dark void as he screamed at him, his anger tearing at his own skin.
"Wh... why!? Why did you do that!?!" Pat sobbed bitterly. "Why do you always do this?!"
Rey grabbed Pat by the hair in his voilent rage, as if he was going to drag him around like a rag doll. "What the hell is YOUR problem?! Why did you go to him in the first place!!?" The lighter boy cringed at Rey's attacks, clenching his eyes shut. "You don't need him!! You don't need anyone!"
"I... I just wanted a freind! I want just one friend! Is that so much to ask?" Pat tried to be brave, but the darker boy was hurting him, not just in skin, but in words.
"You don't need any friends! You can't trust anyone! Did you forget?"
Pat's sour memories flooded the void, a small child in a junk yard.

The female Trix fan ran back to the pot of gold that was left behind and grabbed one of the gold coins. Then, taking her slingshot and loading it with the gold coin, she took careful aim at the balloon and fired.
Both the Rabbit and Lucky were about to enjoy a bowl of their cereal when the coin struck the balloon, piercing it and sending the two flying throughout the air as the balloon started to deflate. As they went through the air after being thrown from the balloon, their bowls and their cereals were thrown also from them.

When I do die,
Will others care?
Might someone cry?
Or laugh aloud,
Filled up with glee,
To know that I
Am now deceased?
Some may be mad,
Or have no care,
Or hear the news
And sit and stare.
I've not a clue
How all may act;
A few, I do,
So here's my fact:
My life is now,
Alive and fine,
Doing my best
With what is mine.
My death will be
The future's past;
Until that time,
I'll have a blast.
So I'll reside
In my present
And live a life
I won't resent.

To try and use their clever minds.
Alas this organ is so neglected
And cowboy boots and hat are affected.

We'll line them up and then the grand ol' NRA will shoot.

Smart will never get us far; I bet they once wore glasses.

Who knows that books are moral wrong
And would never follow dark temptation
Into recycling and conservation.
This is where liberals went wrong
They trusted people to get along
And to go for civil rights and maybe welfare
Not obstruct voting and then kill health care.
But there's more at stake than gays and abortion
"Liberal lies" are but a conservative distortion.
The world hates you, me, and Mr. Bush too.
For Fallujah and what Lynndie England do.

Trix Rabbit: "No matter how hard I try, it seems as though I can never get my hands on those fruity Trix."
As he walks, he takes notice of a colorful glow emanating from a small clearing off the path. He heads for the glow and, taking refuge behind some bushes, partakes upon a wondrous sight.

Once upon a forum dreary, while I browsed weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious post of forgotten forum lore,
While I flicked through hotlinks clicked suddenly there came a barking,
As if someone were posting, gently posting on page four.
'Tis a roleplay', I muttered, 'posting there on page four-
Only that and nothing more.'
Oh how it buzzed my lone computer, connected there via the router,
It thrilled me, filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating, of my heart I stood repeating,
'Tis a roleplay taking place on this thread's page four-
Some late roleplay taking place on this thread's page four-
That it is, and nothing more.'
Presently my will grew stronger, hesitating then no longer,
'Sirs' said I, 'or by chance madam, your forgiveness I implore'
But the fact is I was browsing, and your posts they had me rousing,
Though so faintly you came playing, roleplaying on page four,
That I barely thought I saw you.' Here
What Makes A Good Editor?IntroductionWhat Makes A Good Editor?3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
A good editor has many qualities and a lot of responsibilities.
Editors are necessary. They're like a test run before something gets printed or posted online. The editor is the first person to read it, aside from the writer, and can fix the mistakes before it's shown to the public.
Think of it like a new car design. Before it goes on sale or is even made, the design is created for a specific reason. It's then tested for numerous things before being sold to the public.
Likewise, an editor needs to decide if what they're editing is worth the time. Is there a purpose to the piece? Does it benefit the public or audience? If so, it's then "tested" by various means (such as length, grammar and punctuation, accuracy and fairness, and ethics), and put up against the editor's personal qualities (like patience, time management, decision making, objectivity, accountability, etc.).
The following will detail these means and qualities to show what makes a good editor, specifi
