The weather in Nebel changed back to sunny, warm days...
Karu looked outside the window, enjoying the sunlight on his skin. A soft snort made him look back at the bed... There she lay... Wearing only her long shirt and Karu's scarf, Mairitti was still asleep in the bed, rolling herself to a ball, sneezing every now and then...
"Hehe..." Smiling softly, Karu walked up to her, tickling her nose to cause another sneeze.
"Mmmmh..." She rolled on the other side, pulling the pillow over her face, sleeping on as if nothing had happened...
Looking at her, Karu's face softened... 3 days... It had been only 3 days they had met each other again on the mountain, finally realizing how they actually felt for each other... So much trouble until they had been able to recognize the obvious...
"Pivuuuuuu..." A small white creature suddenly hopped up on Mairitti's head, tapping over it, playfully.

Steer our path unto mortalkinds fall.
His call is their call, echoes of past.
And finally comes the world's justice at last.
He rides through reality though it revokes him.
It cannot repulse, it moves at his whim.
We follow, we serve, we cling and we roar.
Living on the edge of life like never before.
Death of fertile earth.
Never a rebirth.
Evolution, magic's end.
Never will it mend.
The apocalypse has only one great rider.
You will come to know him as Undivider.
Risen, perfected in all emotion sublime.
He is the lord of the end of time.
Armies of concepts, beliefs and thought.
Your own one's destroy, mutilate you.
Warping, menacing, what scheming ones brought.
But that's a low price to pay, seen what is true.
For these armies have all the worlds might at their back.
Against gods there's no use, sleep, fade to black.
I shall go join them, there's only one way.
To escape endless wrath, pain, change and decay.

Empty gaze trained on the window
While glass is scattered like rose petals
Lain for a night of deadly romance with
A heart coated in iron and chained with steel
But cracked, chipping, and revealing that
There was really never anything inside
Just a black cavern waiting to swallow
Unsuspecting travelers looking for a home...
"Why did you do this to me?" you whisper
They just watch and wait for the spectacle
Where they can see the once high-flying eagle
Get shot down by the greedy, heartless hunter
"Because I've become bored with you," they say
As you watch them turn without a second glance
Now you lay there and cry out in anguish and fury
Vowing to never, ever let anyone in again
Hollowing your own heart and welding it in steel

"Not with that attitude."
That was all that I could gather, kneeling in dirt and pebbles to listen to a couple of idiots repeat common knowledge. Of course people were worried that we would perish during the war. That was obvious. The Others were taking over us slowly, and soon we would be left with nothing. Half of us would probably give all we had to be one of The Others. But that was the problem, we had nothing to give. Our lives revolved around trying to get higher up in the world, trying to stay alive, trying to have something. But it was difficult when we had to start off with nothing and there was nothing to be gained. So it was assumed, that this is where we would be born, live then

And the trees bathed in sunlight that were privy to our story untold.
As she stood with me in this secret world, I lost myself in the artistry
and watched her brown eyes glisten as I held her assuredly.
There were no words exchanged, no sweeping declarations of love nor bonds to break
Yet she always swore that my eyes betrayed what mere words refused to say.
But as the summer air grew cold and the crescent moon began to bleed,
Winter came and declared in its haunting silence that she was no longer with me.
I turned around and ran in search of that familiar warmth,
desperate just to bury myself in the safety of her arms.
Now the winter chill has come and gone and with it, so has she.
Not a trace of her existence is left underneath these barren trees.
So I bury my heart here and turn to leave, not knowing what the ever-changing seasons may bring.
But even nature's hope is renewed in the promise of a spring.
Still, when I hear

We seek it thus, and take it to the sky

Nothing shall forestall my return

Roger Samson, for example, though nominally on a city bus, was in fact located in a small windowless home office, to which the door was quite soundproof. His doctor had recommended that he get hearing aids, but Roger remembered the days of parchment-thin walls, and to these he was not anxious to return.
Thus Gloria Wibble had been quite unsuccessful in trying to get his attention.
"Excuse me, sir, would you be able to move your backpack? There aren't any other seats."
Roger, on the bus, bristled and opened his eyes; Roger, in the office, removed his headphones and tore himself away from the game of Flight Simulator in which he was perpetually engaged. There had been a knock on the door, and it was growing quite insistent.
"Oh, here, yes, of course," he mumbled, opening the door to his clean quiet office by means of the left backpack strap. He sat the lumpy object down at his feet and

The Sangheili landed on the Dark Oasis with a very warm welcoming from the Kig-Yar on board. The crew was almost comprised entirely of Kig-Yar, partially thanks to Kig'yar 'Nar Sokamai when he was a high ranking Fleet Master. The Kig-Yar on the ship was of mix groups, the Northern Kig-Yar that love ranged weapons, weak, and yellow skinned; the Southern Kig-Yar that are faster, ferocious looking, and grey skinned; and the Equator Kig-Yar that mine for the crystals that create all their equipment and weapons, they use more technology, and are green skinned.

"Great that's just great," sighed Sam. He sank onto the cluttered bench in his garage, running a frustrated hand through his hair as he stared out across the rain-drenched yard. "The second I get my car back from the wash, the heavens decide to open. Who knows what kind of garbage is in the atmosphere? It's probably full of sand from that storm in the desert a few weeks ago I don't want you getting all dirty again right after I paid good money to have you cleaned up."
Sitting on the floor beside him, hunched over but still filling most of the garage nonetheless, Bumblebee gave a dry whining sound through his semi-functional vocal processors. In all honesty, he couldn't care less about the weather his friend's well-being and happiness took priority over all else. He watched Sam glower out at the downpour, studying the human's disheartened posture in concern.

With giant arcs that bring death to those whose time has come

With quick, exact, and cold precision he carries out his task
The only occupation that will exist until the end of time and beyond
He is the Reaper and he is omnipotent

The Life of AnimationThe Life of Animation5 years ago in Historical More Like This
"If this business was easy, it would be a sin."
-Hayao Miyazaki, Animerica Magazine. 1993
Animation is the youngest medium of art that mankind has created. Spanning barely over one hundred years, its history is as rich and dramatic as any other. Starting as the simple idea of an illusion of moving art by a couple clever innovators at Edison's film company in the early 1900's, it soon boomed into a mega-corporate commercial venture that employed thousands and captivated millions only decades later. It spread outside of America and took many different forms in many different countries and cultures. Today, the face of animation is very different than it ever was. Computers, corporate chokeholds and the death of the innovators of animation has left a doubtful future for the preservation of animation's defining age.
The 1910's saw the rise of animation as a serious medium and the first studios began to appear in the United States. Winsor McCay, a masterful draftsman and artist, had

I knew it wasnt going to be a nice day anyways. Customers started coming in as the sun raised and drowned New York with its light. As I cleaned a table, I read the Gazette over a customers shoulder. A man just killed his two daughters with a kitchen knife. He panicked over the idea that there will be nuclear war with the Russians. This is why I never buy newspapers. They only have bad news for us. No wonder this town is falling apart so quickly.
I miss the times where we knew there was the Watchmen to look over us. I remember when as a kid I used to make a cape out of a towel and run around the house with my friends. I always wanted to be a superhero so I could meet them but my parents thought it was ridiculous and too dangerous. I ended up where I am now, wo
