Pokemon Rant on PaulWhy I Hate Paul
The Paul I am referring to is a character in the pokemon anime, who is currently Ash's primary rival while the group is in the Sinnoh region. Paul is really a varied character: on the Serebii.net forums, the Paul character discussion thread has, at the time of writing, nearly spans twenty pages, though most of it is saying how "awesome" he is. However, I do not think he is awesome. I hate him more than I hate Harley from the same show. I want to strangle Paul and break one of his limbs. Most probably won't know why I feel this way, so I will explain.
First, Pokemon are sentient beings in this setting. As Linkara pointed out in his review of "Captain Planet and the Planeteers #3," if animals were truly intelligent enough to make their own decisions and follow orders, animals would easily be given rights. Considering that many pokemon in this setting are shown to be smart enough to qualify, pokemon should have a bill of rights. In the real world, Paul's trea
The Twilight Relationship Since its first publication in 2005, the Twilight phenomenon reached all corners of America, spread to Europe, and secured a movie deal for the entire series. The great success of this book, however, is not due to author Stephanie Meyer's literary genius in creating a riveting plot or memorable characters. Strangely enough, Twilight displays a spectacular lack of all of these, along with a blatant absence of the fundamentals- grammar and other essential writing skills. The mystery of the popularity of Twilight has puzzled many longtime readers, but it is the "love" between the two main characters, Bella and Edward, that attracts the crowd. The target demographic squeals for more, but when read objectively the series portrays nothing but an unfounded and possibly abusive relationship acted out by static characters, characters that are nothing more than glorified stereotypes.The Twilight Relationship4 years ago in Editorial More Like This

Oh, Link! Now that Ganondorf has been stopped at last, we can be together!
You seem confused. What's wrong?
When did I agree to be your lover?
You don't have to agree to it, silly! It's meant to be! Can't you feel it in your bones?
Exactly how is it that we're meant to be together?
Well, you're name is Link, my name is Zelda... You're a hero, I'm a princess... We both have pieces of the Triforce annnnnnd..... We're...... Both.... Natural blonds?
Okay, so we've got maybe two things in common, but where's the chemistry between us?
Yeah, how do our personalities fit together to suit romance?
Okay, then how's about you tell me how long you've known that we're supposedly meant to be?
Forever and ever and ever, Link!
Okay, if you've always loved me, then how come we've never had so much as a friendly conversation before?
What do you mean?
Why I Love Fullmetal Alchemist 2003 and Only 2003Why I Love Fullmetal Alchemist 2003 and Only 20033 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Fullmetal Alchemist (Which will he by be known as FMA) the first animated series (2003) has not gotten me through anything in my life, or anything like that. FMA was the first, and one of the only animated series from Japan that I actually liked. This series unlike the original storyline of the manga makes the Homunculus storyline much deeper and have their hatred towards humanity more real. The relationship of Edward and Alphonse is more caring then that of the manga. The rest of the cast also seem more human, and less 1 dimensional in FMA then in the manga and even more then the -1D in the manga's poor adaptation (Brotherhood) Even the ending was more realistic and more moving then the rainbow bunny ending of the manga. Now it's not to say that I never liked the manga's storyline, in fact my username is a character's name from the story, but with the ending of the manga came my hatred for the series. When it comes to the poor adaptation of the manga (Brotherhood) I never l
Ib - He Didn't KnowColdness overcame him. Garry had no choice but to lay down as Ib moved forward, a fragment of the very essence of his life snatched away with each time an eerily kind voice would sing. Loves me, Loves me not.

Of course he heard the voice. Garry listened to each petal of his magic blue rose fall, floating to the ground as his life wilted with the flower. He had once hoped that Ib might have been able to rescue him, but soon he became aware of how fragile his consciousness was becoming and how soon he would slip into darkness.
Garry wanted only the best for Ib, the cute, fun little girl he had only met that afternoon. In his last moments when the last shining blue petal fell and Mary sounded off a final, blissful Loves me as a cheer of victory Garry had only wished that Ib had made it home safely after all they had been through at this horror show of an art museum and that Mary would stay as far away from the sweet girl as possible.

Let's begin shall we? I'll be using the Hedone High boys as my examples.
Tip #1: Hai baby, what's your concept?
If you were looking for a date this pick-up line would probably get you slapped in the face, but if you were looking to develop a character and shove them in a setting with other characters than it's a pretty handy way to begin. To put it in a longer sentence: What is the point of your character in relation to the storyline and/or other characters?
like in romance novels.i would like to say that it's not my fault i fall in love in five minutes, i would like to tell you i am logical and intelligent and everything the stereotypical whimsical teenage girl is not. because i am supposed to be the person that isn't like everybody else, that doesn't fall into a stereotype, that doesn't fit into any pre-made shape or size or measurement. i am supposed to be the girl that has will power and judgment and thinks ahead. i'm supposed to be on a different shelf, a higher shelf, a place with only me. but i keep finding all these other people on the shelf; it's getting bigger or something. or maybe i just fell down and i didn't notice.like in romance novels.6 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

I smiled as we leaned agenst the wall behind us and slumped to the ground. "You have a good question, I really don't even know how we got here in the first place, but it seems we ended up in the same situation I have to say" he said as he looked at me. "It seems so" I answered. "And even down to these roses. Just when one loses its pedal, scars appear on my body " he said looking toward the floor. I looked at him with some sadness in my eyes. "I thought I was a goner back there thank you for getting it back" he said looking toward me as I nodded. "Alright now first things first we need to find a way out of here, I think I'll go mad if I stay in this dreadful place for too long" he said with a chuckle. I smiled at him as I stood up. I held my hand out to help him up. He took it as a slight blush faded on my cheeks. "thanks" he said brushing the dust off his coat.

The thing was a completely mess, just riding over it was a suicide mission! No, Link was not going to put himself AND the spirit train into danger. He wouldn't want to be the one having to explain to Anjean he broke the precious gift of the spirits(Now that would be a suicide mission indeed!).
Zelda circled around in her spirit form, observing the bridge from a distance "Just look at that bridge it's a complete mess!" she nagged and saying the obvious "How are we supposed to get on the other side with the bridge in this state?"
The young engineer spoke gently and tried to calm her down. "I'm sure there is a way around it princess." But she merely glared at him in return "I told you, just call me Zelda as we travel like this okay? And have you forgotten th

Blue awoke with a jerk.
The room was pitch black, and completely silent to the untrained ear. Everything seemed as it should, since it was the middle of the night. However Blue felt himself tense, his grip tightening on the small dagger under his pillow, knowing there had to be a reason he'd broken from sleep. He hadn't even been dreaming so it had to be an outside disturbance. He let his senses explore the

It was dark. The second thing I remember. The road was through a dense forest, so even if it had been daylight, itd still be dark. Id gone to the nearby town to pick up some groceries. Grandma had thrown out her back again while gardening and Grandpa was in a wheelchair, so I was the only one who could go, not that this was a big deal to me or anything. This wasnt my first time Id run her errands for her, but I wasnt prepared for what was to come.
It was just a normal, rainy, summer night. The false assumption of security is another memory that will never fade. Just how wrong I was can never be put into words.
I was about halfway back to the cabin when I heard distant sounds. I stopped, listening. They got closer and as they did I heard sounds of metal
