I don't want to be this way
But I am
Maybe I'll change someday
For now, all I can do is apologize
I'm sorry for the words I spoke
I'm sorry for the way I treated you
I'm sorry for all that I broke
I'm sorry for being distant
I'm sorry for the way I look
I'm sorry for the way I think
I'm sorry for how much time I took
To end this relationship
The longer I wait
The more pain it will bring
It's the way of Fate

By Your Side, Forever and Ever
Greed now rules the spoils of war.
Queen has set her throne on the royal hall (the ruins of the realm)
I have walked through the dark
I have fought my way out of her prison.
I have witnessed the war
I have found my love wrapped in oblivion.
The eldritch swarm over our world,
My shining one, where have you gone?
Devourer's claws hold on your heart,
My shining love, where are you lost?
Broken harmony, its protectors fell
Imprisoned their kin, in repressed tears (the realm of peace)
From beasts he swore to shield his home,
My shining one, the guardian.
Wake from the queen's dormant veil,
Within your heart resides our hope.
In despair we need your gallant strength,
My shining one, reclaim your shield.
I'll support your task,

Larissa was having a hard time not laughing. She choked back another giggle as Bea's evidently uncontrollable fluffy foxtail once again whipped her poor husband Reggie's face. Such was the matronly fox wife's excitement in describing upcoming events for Foxwood's young "visitor." Reggie just kept swatting Bea's wayward tail away from his nose, but said nothing of the annoyance to his beloved.
"What Bea means," explained Reggie, "is that we are near the end of the Month of Leo, and so the one-month reign of Prin

The 12 Basic Principles of AnimationTHE 12 BASIC PRINCIPLES OF ANIMATIONThe 12 Basic Principles of Animation9 months ago in Historical More Like This
by DISNEY'S NINE OLD MEN, & JIMMY GIBSON
SQUASH AND STRETCH
The most important principle is "Squash and Stretch", the purpose of which is to give a sense of weight and flexibility to drawn objects. It can be applied to simple objects, like a bouncing ball, or more complex constructions, like the musculature of a human face. Taken to an extreme point, a figure stretched or squashed to an exaggerated degree can have a comical effect. In realistic animation, however, the most important aspect of this principle is the fact that an object's volume does not change when squashed or stretched. If the length of a ball is stretched vertically, its width (in three dimensions, also its depth) needs to contract correspondingly horizontally.
Anticipation is used to prepare the audience for an action, and to make the action appear more realistic. A dancer jumping off the floor has to bend his knees first; a golfer making a swing has to swing the club

There once was a llama named Jeff.
He dreamed of becoming a chef.
He cooked and cooked, but it all turned out bad,
And surely, Jeff was sad.
He tried and he tried,
He cried and he cried,
His food just did not turn out well.
But one magical night,
He woke up to a fright,
To the sound of an overweight fairy.
It asked "What do you want? What do you wish?"
"I wish to make the most wonderful dish."
And with a wave of a wand, a wiggle of the nose,
Jeff's wish had come true.
There it was, standing before him,
An enormous bowl of llama stew.

Chapter One: Can't Catch a Break
It wasn't easy. But then again, love never was. Love is especially hard when one in the relationship was a demon Digimon and the other a holy Digimon.
It's especially so when said demon Digimon is one of the Seven Demon Lords.
It's even harder when the holy Digimon works for the Great Angels.
It's nearly impossible when the Demon Lord is a double agent who says he's a Demon Lord, but also works for the Great Angels, and thus has to constantly keep an eye out behind him.
But they'd been making it work. Beelzemon, Demon Lord of Gluttony and Kuzuhamon, servant to Lady Ophanimon of the human type Digimon had been making their relationship work for the past few months. While they couldn't be together every day, that didn't matter. The important thing was that their relationship was working and they hadn't been caught by the other Demon Lords. Or the other Royal Knights. Surprisingly, no one had bothered to tell the warriors (Al

Sure, Noah had his virtual dog, Sam, to keep him company, but that wasn't enough. Why should it have been? Sam was just a dog, a fake one at that. Noah wanted a friend. Someone he could actually talk to and get an intelligent response from.

"Hello, Beelzemon," Lillithmon said in a seductive voice. "How was the outside?"
"Get lost, Lillithmon," he snapped. "I really don't like you, and I never have."
"Don't be like that " she said, walking over to him.
Beelzemon's eyes flashed in anger as he lifted his Berenjena shotgun at her. "If you don't leave, we're gonna have to have a membership drive."
"Why's that?" she asked 'innocently'.
"You'll be dead."
Lillithmon gulped out of fear and backed away.

"Fine," she said stiffly. Lillithmon walked out of his room, and Beelzemon locked the door after her. "Man, she's a real jerk. Not kind and not nearly as beautiful as Kuzuhamon," he said quietly. Kuzuha's funny and smart though a little naïve she's beautiful and elegan

“Crap!

Hauptmann Karessa double-checked the guard routes one more time before heading to her office at the aisle. The guards had been doubled for the night after Bishop Maxfel Hedrin announced his visit. She felt anxious about the notorious bishop's sudden appearance. After all this could be her opportunity to impress the top brass of Asmodeus church. Yet this sudden visit worried her. It was not unheard of for the notorious inquisitor to audit the temples' authorities, which included her, but his visit coincided with some disturbing rumors.
Two days before the Bishop's arrival a couple of Karessa's men overheard a woman asking questions about the temple. Her questions and the proximity to the bishop's visit were too close to the mark to be a coincidence. Unfortunately when she sent her men back for the woman she was nowhere to be found.
She had them chastised, of course, but she herself was left with making sure nothing happened while the bishop was around. Earlier she met the man himself an

The name hit a nerve.
How could Norn Hannah Kappel not recognize one of her children, one of the girls she helped bring into the world? Now she could see it clearly. Jordan's features: her emerald eyes and pale skin. They were those of her mother, just finer due to her elven blood. Whereas her mother had been possessed of long, red hair, Jordan had shorter black hair. Nevertheless, she was her mother's daughter; she had the same soft smile. Her ears were pointed and her eyes deep and full of purpose just like her father. She was the same height as her mother, just a bit taller than Hannah herself, but she was athletic and fit for combat.
The Norn lowered her face and took the girl's hands on her own. "Child, forgive them! I am sorry my dear child, I didn't know."
Jordan looked a bit embarrassed. "It's fine Norn. I understand the people in the region have suffered. I can't really blame them."

How could I not see it?
How could I not know that the others understand me.
I have endured a lot,
with feeling alone.
Once my parents and sisters perished,
I thought the ones around me wouldn't know the feeling.
Dear, how wrong was I.
Every single individual in this very journey
knows exactly how it feels.
Whether it's losing a family member,
or just being alone,
they know how I feel.
I felt weak inside,
meeting them at first.
I am surrounded by others,
with many kinds of personalities and background stories.
Who knew I'd grow fond of them?
Ah, yes! A centipede with a rambunctious personality,
and a mysterious spider.
A sweet ladybug,
and an intelligent grasshopper.
An earthworm who is timid, yet can show some bravery,
and a glowworm we need for light.
A kind young boy who is brave,
and helped me realize my true identity.
I am a feisty butterfly,
despite my appearance,
I can show how courageous I am!

Marguerite Butler burst into the Hotel's Saloon. She ignored the angry comments of a man she accidentally pushed to the side and looked around desperately for a hiding place. There was none, at least none that she could reach before they caught up with her. Marguerite turned around, watching the swinging doors she had just crossed, half in fear half in defiance, and took from underneath her dress's bodice a heavy wad of bills.
-"I need to reach Boston in less than a week! There will be five thousand dollars for those who help me get there within that time... two thousand now, the rest when we reach Boston!" she said in a high-pitched and desperate voice.
