Commissioner Gordon stood on the roof, his hands in the pockets of his overcoat as he stared up at the bat signal that shined brightly on the clouds above. With him were two uniformed police officers, both of whom watched the signal on the clouds as well. The spotlight that sent it there illuminated much of the roof surrounding it, but behind it and in the distance, all was shrouded in shadows, and everyone present knew that Batman would emerge from those shadows. The sounds of the blowing wind would mask the approach of the Dark Knight and tensions were high as the three awaited him.
A loud, mechanical click sounded from behind them and the spotlight went out, plunging much of the rooftop back into darkness. Only the two lights that flanked the one door that accessed the roof illuminated the roof to any degree. Even as the two policemen spun around, Gordon turned almost casually, looking to the shadowy figure who stood

So much to do. So much to consider.
Darkness had settled hours ago and the house was finally quiet. Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes. With one hand laying on her belly and the other arm curled around her head, she did her best to relax her body, hoping that her mind would soon follow. Her long black hair was pulled to one side and was flailed out on her pillow and bed. Her spacious bedroom was dimly lit in the warm blue glow offered by the full moon. There were n
Attack of the 50-foot DaisyThings were normal as usual for Princess Daisy and Sarasaland. Very normal. It's been almost a decade now since she was freed from the evil forces of Tatanga by Mario. He had saved her in place of Luigi, who had previously been injured in a battle with Tatanga while trying to defend the princess from danger. Since that time, Tatanga has disappeared, and Daisy is able to spend peaceful times with Luigi whenever he comes down to visit. The two got along very well... it was almost like the match between Mario and Peach.Attack of the 50-foot Daisy11 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
However, deep inside her heart... Daisy still cared for Mario as well. She never did give him the proper gratitude for being rescued. Of course, it would be nothing more than a simple thanks, since she knew that Mario already had a girl. None other than her great friend, Princess Peach Toadstool. Daisy didn't interfere with the two, since she saw them as an adorable couple, much like how she was with Luigi.
There is something, however, that Daisy feels weary about. Ever si

Anxiety surged up again and quickly she felt herself near panic as she looked around her. When she tried to sit up, a strap around her chest stopped her. Trying to raise her hands to remove it revealed that she was cuffed to the bed she lay on. Looking down at herself, she saw that she was only covered with a white sheet and white wool blanket, and over these were leather restraints over her legs and hips and she could feel her ankles cuffed and strapped down beneath the sheet. Her eyes darted about. This looked like the Batcave, and yet it did not. Drawing a deep breath, she tried to calm herself and reason out what had happen, w

"Whew! That was fun, Link! You're just too good at that target shooting!" Saria said.
"Just shows how much you learn when you're saving the world." Link said.
The two were now a few yards away from Link's house.
"You know, Link, I've been hiding this dream I've had for a long time. And I wish it would become reality soon." Saria said.
"And what's that?" Link asked.
"If you ever leave the Kokiri Forest again, I want to go with you. I want to save the world with you." Saria said.
Link stared at Saria for a few seconds, and then broke into laughter.
"You? Save the world? With me? Hahahahaha! Give me a break, Saria!" Link said.

The open top jeep sped along the rutted dirt road, bouncing its two occupants about in their seats. I did say it was a nice day for a country drive but this isnt exactly what I had in mind. The passenger, Lieutenant Diana Prince commented wryly. The bespectacled Military Intelligence Officer found herself in the deepest backwoods as an observer on a large scale Infantry manoeuvres exercise, silently cursing the fact they had been unable to secure a vehicle with a better suspension than their current mode of travel.
Her companion, seemingly oblivious to her discomfort laughed in response. Tall, blonde and strikingly handsome, Major Steve Trevor was in his element as he skilfully steered the speeding jeep over the back roads toward their next rendezvous point. I know youre not the outdoors type Diana but even you have to admit that this beats the hell out of being stuck behind a desk all day.

How To 'Flesh Out' an OCHow To 'Flesh Out' an OC4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The aggregate of features and traits that form the
individual nature of some person or thing.
In this tutorial I will guide you through a way to 'flesh out' an Original Character (Also known as an OC). Before we begin, let's go through the basics.
A character is quite simply one who possesses qualities that define them from someone else. Every character is original and unique. A character can not only be human, but an animal, an alien, or anything that the imagination can come up with.
However, characters are often difficult to create, because to put it bluntly, you are in a sense creating a new being. This being needs the same kinds of traits and characteristics you possess, but can't be your own. They have to be original. In this case, many young writers and artists forget how hard it is to make a character and forget the complex details that enhance a character.
Fleshing out is a term used commonly in developing characters. It means to add additional det

What if I held you like you were made of glass
And out of my dreams you would never pass
I'd like to think you'd know just what love is and was
Because in my arms I'd show how to really love and be loved
My world would be complete
If I could just lay at your feet
And tell you all that you mean to me
Oh how my heart and soul would be so free
I think a love like this would stand a chance
And be more than just a simple little romance
I would take you and hold and never let you go
I would never let this love grow cold if you'd only say so
My heart feels like a fire is waking from a dark cold slumber
And if you touched my chest you would certainly fall under
The spells of my love yes my love that's who you would be
Just say the word and I will be your everything
I'll even take the time to learn what makes your heart truly sing
I'll be your everything if you would swear upon all you hold dear
That you'll never fall out of love with me not once ever you hear
Cause with my love in yo

Is this real or is it a dream?
No, this feeling I feel
I'm sure it's real
And every second longer

But what is this feeling? Why am I so glad?
Maybe I'm going crazy. Maybe I'm just mad.
No, no it's none of the above
This feeling I feel, might actually be love.

He checked both ends to make sure he was alone, and hidden, for an afternoon could find many people out and about, even in alleyways, before he stood straight. He punched his left fist in the air, and seemed to strike something, for a reaction began through his body, black gloves appeared on his hands, then the sleeve of a silver shirt ran down his arm, ending in a black vest over the silver except around the nexk area, the reaction spread to all of him, his pants became black leather and he wore black boots, he sprouted huge black bat wings on his back, and his face turned dark grey, except for some black markings around his face.

Minutes ago, Link was able to escape a horrific nightmare, in which Link was to be crushed to the might of his good friend Saria. He walked back and forth around the house, trying to drop the subject, but it just kept coming back to haunt him. He kept thinking, what if he had the same dream again? Only this time with either Malon, Ruto, or maybe even Princess Zelda!

And less people poor,
The World would be happier,
Thats for sure.
There'd be no money,
Because don't you see?
For there to be everlasting happiness,
Everything would need to be free.
There'd be a crime rate of about zero.
I.e. no criminals, not danger.
Conformity for the win!
Individuality is petty
Cause we'd all look the same,
So oh-so pretty.
Religious disputes are just not on.
Better make sure there's not religion on all!
No drugs No morphine,
Find another way to numb that old mans pain, thank ye.
Oh thats right,
In this world there is no pain.
No misery, no hurt.
Nothing bad today
And nothing bad tonight.
Don't you think this world is just beautiful?
It'll never get my approval.

Rise my sons and come my daughters
Were to walk the living land.
For to speak the wisest silence
Ever leapt from tongue to ear
Time is short and lifes a blessing
Savor sterner signs than tears
Call the rain and till the soil
Bear the burden with a grin
Shines the sun and soon the toil
Turns to wisdom come within
Ground be hard and sight be weary
Keen your hearing nere to hear
For to thee belongs the moment
And a sombre span of years

And the morrows ours to face
Found have we our glint of glory
