Starlight Myth- Lunabuns and the Moon“A long time ago, a giant Lunabun ruled over all of the Lunabuns in the world. It was so big though, it caused difficulties for it. It couldn’t move, or else it would crush its subjects, and a wave of its tail would cause such a gust that trees would fall behind it. It looked up to the heavens and longed for the open space above it.Starlight Myth- Lunabuns and the Moon1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
As if reading its mind, the great goddess Celestia appeared before the Lunabun, and offered to take it to the heavens, where it would be free to roam without care. The Lunabun let Celestia lead it to the heavens, going so far that it became a small circle in the sky. Extremely happy, the Lunabun started to spin to observe the heavens around it. However, it lost control and couldn’t stop spinning, no matter how hard it tried. The earth-bound Lunabuns observed their ruler every night, where it was most visible in the sky.
The large Lunabun spun until it could no longer face the sun, and only its black tail could be seen. Its subjects, howeve

A young man sits in his room, head down, solemn expressions set in his face. Rain taps at his window, his eyes moving from place to place. They don't focus on the sights, or the entry in the journal on his lap, but the memories that flash before him in his head.
A young woman, standing in a field, beautiful, lovely, wearing a warming smile. She stares at him through his thoughts, his memories, bringing pain into his heart.
A young love, a young hope, a young mistake. Oh, why must it have happened, breaking what he longed to sustain?
She smiles, with that embracing smile. He cringes, eyes shut tight.
She looks, with that loving look. He tightens, tears fall in his book.
A fallen dream, a mistaken longing. The sting of failure fills his head, blocking what he knows is true.
She smiles, with that embracing smile. He looks up, into her eyes.
She looks, with that loving look. He s
Harvest Pokemoon Application: Marty RansomMarty Ransom leaned back in the bed of his battered pickup truck, watching the clouds and the Wingulls pass overhead as the ferry chugged along towards Raccolto. One hand scratched idly under his thick brown curls, while the other scratched just as aimlessly behind the ears of the snoozing Lillipup beside him. Half his attention was focused on trying to sort out the letter he'd send back to his old home; the other half wasn't focused on much of anything at all.Harvest Pokemoon Application: Marty Ransom1 year ago in Profiles More Like This
It wasn't his fault he'd run out of work. He was pretty sure of that much, at least. There just weren't many new construction jobs in the city anymore, even for a hale and fit young man with a good work record. Every foreman had said some version of the same thing: "a year ago, we'd have picked you up in an instant." Well, it wasn't a year ago, and the construction boom was over, and there'd be no good staying in the city and moping about it. He was tall and strong and fairly clean, and he was a quick learner even if

Forty-one souls you called here to die
Hearts full of greed, desperation, and fear
Soon to sacrifice all they held dear
The cephalopod who's flesh can change shade
The panther-hawk who's blood stained the glade
The psychic and spiked one fell side by side
What price for the might magic can provide
Amphibious frog man slain by mistake
Snow leopard child who's heart was to break
Mighty dragon born to guard ancient tombs
All were united to face certain doom
Water child, by his people cast out
Polecat and spirit, their minds filled with doubt
Rabbit woman, pursued by hell's forces
They sought powers and cared not the sources
Shape-shifting demon who longed for affection
Red one trapped by a demon infection
Innocent children divided by fate
From violence there rose a current of hate
One set free by medallion of black
One fled to the light but was dragged right back
One crippled on false accusations
Their despair grew with each confrontation
Every New BeginningKenny awoke slowly to dull, annoying pain that spread slowly through his whole body, beginning with his chest and ending with his fingers and toes. A soft groan escaped his lips as he stretched and felt more than heard his back crack. Perhaps he'd been putting his body through too much stress lately. He assumed than being through a good hundred feet into a brick wall with the speed of a freight train by a gargoyle that would make the Terminator cry for his mommy (An expression Jade had used.) was enough to make even a true vampire bed ridden for a few days. And Kenny was not a true vampire.Every New Beginning3 years ago in Settings More Like This

"Adventure time!!!" Desirea yelled in response.
"No, please no, not again can't we ever do anything, oh I dunno, NORMAL?!" Sami said, still recovering from her exciting saga in the past.
Lucinda rolled her eyes and snapped back at Sami, "Well at least they know how to have fun."
Sami rolled her eyes and replied mockingly, "Well at least they know how to have fun~"
"Oh shut up, you're so immature!"
"Oh shut up, you-"
The walls began to dissolve, and the carpet swirled into a grayish mass.
"Damn it " Sami whispered, and Lucinda stuck out her tongue. "And you call ME immature!"
Desirea saw her long lost lover and ran forward to leap into her arms. Desirea's lover name was still unknown, but Desirea loved her anyway. We call her Merdle. Merdle was always liked by everyone, so she had her usual group of friends around her.
Merdle smiled at Desirea once she realized who the strange person was that had been running toward her. "Desirea! You've returned!

I felt a rough nudge on my shoulder accompanied by a "Get up you lazy bum. We need to work." It was Sami. I could tell because for the past two days after the fight, she's been working all day to keep her mind away from the fact that Desirea is being held captive, although she can't hide the fact that she checks the comcount every five minutes to make sure she's still alive.
"It's not even light out. Five more minutes," I mumbled as I rolled over and closed my eyes again.
"By the time you get off your butt and walk over to the ladder and get down, it will be light. I can already see the freaking sun coming out. Get up."
That's another change Sami's had. She snaps back at everything and doesn't take no for an answer. I've been handling differently. I try to act like it never happened, but I will step up and do something when we finally confront Lucinda again, which is going to be discussed at tonight's meeting.
I decided not to make Sami too angry, and I got up, stretched, and followed

"Then let me relieve a little of your pain." Nadeo pressed against Kitsori's side, ice creeping along his fur.
The Kotsu was still dazed from its fight, but it soon began to realize what had happened. Rage began to course through its veins as it roared, splitting the air with its fury. It noticed RayJ beside the cliff face, its original target and the perceived source of its problems. Lumbering across the landscape, it lifted its claw to strike the small, brown competitor before yowling and stumbling. Hopping over the Kotsu and across the plane, RayJ looked back to see what had caused the fall. Blood smeared on Nadeo's face and a gash on the Kotsu's back ankle was all that was needed to know what had happened. But where was that fox? Looking back, Kitsori was no longer where Nadeo had left him. He'd seemingly disappeared when

The unusual silence told me no one else was awake. Confused, I looked around the shelter to find Lucifer, who was always the first one up, only to remember he had died two nights ago, never to return. I walked over to the side of the balcony to stretch.
Today was the day. The day we finally confronted Lucinda and her alliance. However, as I thought about it further, we were only one person short of their alliance. They had slaughtered two of the teams in their original alliance, probably thinking that no one else would even think about creating an enemy alliance to her all-powerful one. She was wrong once again.
For her extreme power of deception and cunning, she's made her fair share of mistakes. She killed off almost half of her alliance already, she underestimated the non-allied teams, and now she's completely oblivious to our secret alliance that plans on attacking her today.

You could never walk in cause it's too sad a sight,
You say you're sorry every night before bed,
You stay up all night with worries running through your head,
She's not the care free little girl that she used to be,
You know that she's seen more than she should see.
You pray every night that she'll get better soon,
When you see her next morning she'll be carrying her usual tune,
You want to reach out but she steps back every time,
You ask her whats wrong and she says shes just fine,
But you know that she's not, and her tears are from pain,
You secretly wonder, "Is she going insane?"
You try and hold her before bed, hug her tightly to your chest,
Treat her like the little girl she was, when she really was the best.
But she just walks away, and says "It's okay"
When it's not because shes crying at the end of every day.
You wish you could help her in any way you could,
If you could take away her pain I know you would.

'Third time's a charm' I used to tell myself. However, I don't think that was very relevant here in the arena. The third day seemed to drag on forever. The comcount didn't even vibrate once that day. It was almost as if the Council wanted us to leave the cave. I spoke too soon.
It was the morning of the fourth day in the arena. The usually refreshing breeze that entered through the opening was replaced by dusty smoke. I realized I couldn't see anything, anything at all. Not even Desirea, who always slept right next to me. I quickly nudged each of them awake, and they experienced the same horror.
I shoved my way through the tiny hole at the opening and realized that we were surrounded by smoke. I could feel it as it flew down my throat, causing a burning sensation. I tried coughing it back up, but it was quickly replaced by another inhale of fresh smoke. Turning around, I saw the fiery orange glow of the trees, and even though the smoke was clouding my vision, I knew it was a forest fir

There was nothing around for miles. The cold air crisp and rough. It was difficult to breath. It was harder than I expected. I thought I would be able to handle this on my own, but I was wrong. Dreadfully wrong. I wondered here and there looking for nothing. I wasn't very sure. All I knew was I wanted to find that Caped man. He had answers. People like him had to. My only friend told me to stay at home, safe in bed, but I left anyways to find this caped man. How stupid I was. What would I do when my mother woke up and didn't find me under my pink sheet? I walked with more difficulties. Finally I collapsed under my weight as I saw the Caped man. "You!" I screamed with all my power, my energy. I struggled to lift my finger. He came closer and to my horror I found out why he wore a cape. The wind blow as he walked towards me and his long cape waved free, showing me this caped man had no flesh. His bony finger touched my cheek as he bent down. He smiled a toothy smile and kicked me,

Of who I used to be..
I can't believe that smiling face
Ever belonged to me.
I listen to my old CDs
Hoping that maybe
If I listen to them enough
I'll turn back into me.
Rereading my old journals
Tracing over the dates..
The words that I wrote are all that's solid
From them, I can't escape.
Listening to my phone messages
The voices I once knew..
Most of them just kill me more
Because they're from you..
Trying to forget who I am
And recreate the past
A plan that will fail for sure
And failing, it is, fast..
These thoughts I had were never mine
But they were yours instead..
It's like you've taken over me
Gotten inside my head.
I live inside these photographs
That dont include your face
The memories I had of "us"
Seem to be misplaced.
Burn out these old wounds and scars
Create myself anew
New, yes, that must mean
A me, but without you.

She papers the walls, with tissues and glue
She colours the paper, in bright red and blue
She slashes her arms up, but what can one do?
She needs it arterial, and if not her then who?
An old broken mirror, which causes him pain
His broken reflection, it eats at his brain
It's light trapped and scattered, which he fights in vain
And people, they wonder why he's gone insane?
One bad trip too many, the colours are hazy
We lay back in silence, relaxed but not lazy
Our cosmic awareness, your books call it crazy
The world is a guitar, free love and a daisy
They talk to the Others, who tell them to kill
The wicked and evil, whose blood they must spill
A happy young couple, and oh what a thrill
A chainsaw's swift justice, and fresh meat to grill.

It had been raining all morning, fat little droplets beating away relentlessly at Desdemon's window panes. The dark clouds roiled overhead and didn't seem to plan on dissipating anytime soon. It would have been the perfect day to sit inside, curl up with some hot chocolate on an armchair before the fireplace, and read a good mystery novel.
