Trauma Center: Illness
Derek had never been on a ship before. Rafts and small fishing boats, sure, but an actual ocean bound ship was something entirely new. He was never one for travel and he had already known he did not like planes. The flights were always long and the couch was small and cramped. Compared to that, plus the airline security and other hassles, he was somewhat looking forward to this means of traveling. It certainly could not be any worse than flying, right?
". . .Uhhhnn. . . .this . . .sucks. . ."
Derek grimaced as another wave of nausea overtook him. Crumpled against the side railing of the deck, he placed a hand over his churning stomach and tried to keep his gaze fixed on the horizon. Fresh air and watching the sea line was supposed to help with seasickness, but obviously no

Angie: Poison Ivy
It had seemed innocent enough. Angie had decided to spend her break outside and she took a nice, brisk walk around the perimeter of the building. The fresh air and sunshine put her in a good mood, as she rarely got to experience either. She stretched her arms over her head and let out a content sigh.
Ah! I cant believe it!
The sudden cry of one, Tyler Chase, brought her from her revere. She looked up to see him looking out a window as a bundled packet of papers fell and settled among the vegetation below. Derek appeared next to him and placed his hands on the window sill, leaning over slightly to see where the packet had fallen. How in the world did you managed to drop that? he asked, sending Tyler an inquisitive sideways glance. The latter said nothing more than unintelligible grumbles as he collapsed over the window, his arms d

Rythian hurried over to the tall white tower in the night, he had received a letter from Xephos that there was a Poker Game (drinks included) at the factory. He knocked on the door and then he saw the little Dwarf at the bottom of the door “State Yer Business “ He growled “I’m here for the Poker game” He Got a little Smile in his face and let me in. I saw all the machines on the wall and felt sick. He then followed the dwarf all the way to the top into his penthouse, there was a hot tub a race car bed and a robot-butler and then I saw the table.

Derek's voice had regressed to a monotone, not because of boredom; quite the opposite. He and his assistant, Angela Thompson, were in the middle of an operation. Derek had just invoked his Healing Touch in a bolstered effort to successfully complete the operation and save the patient. His hands moved so quickly that it was almost impossible to follow them; there were afterimages all over the operating space where his hands had been, where they were, and even where they would be. His eyes were wide as his concentration became supernaturally high, and his voice echoed out the tools he needed at a moment's notice, his trusty nurse--not to mention lover--placing each tool carefully in his hands as he needed them, never breaking the chain.
Eventually, the operation was complete. The patient was sutured, the incision disinfected and bandaged. As it was a field operation, the patient was then carted off

She doesn't like to explain things either. In her opinion, everyone should keep their actions and bruises and slaps and screams to themselves because, to be honest, why would anyone want to care? All they'll ever say is I'm sorry dear, and she's left with oh it's fine it's not a big deal anyway, it doesn't hurt much anymore.
And if anyone asks too many times, looks to closely, raises an eyebrow at her excuses and presses further she'll have to get defensive, something she doesn't like to do. Being assertive isn't her strong suit, and the most she can ever do is back away and hold her hand to her cheek or eye or arm and mutter it's nothing, it's nothing, as though the words will shield her and why are you looking so close, I'm just a klutz that trips too much for her own good, that's all it is.
And she'll laugh and smile and nod and clasp her

I guess most people would think "Hey, that boy just spent the last year or so stuck to a bed and all; feeling depressed and out of his mind, having delusions and crying for help; he must be thrilled to get a second chance to enjoy life! I bet he's trying to live his life to the fullest, making every second worth it, blah blah blah carpe diem, blah blah blah…", right? The truth, however, can be quite disappointing.
Thing is, I have this theory I was some sort of extra lazy drakon in a past incarnation, you know, cause I happen to be this awfully tall person who hates the summer heat and its never ending sunlight burning through my eyes even when I'm trying to take a good afternoon nap; plus I tend to become extra dangerous to anyone who tries to wake me up even though I'm aware of how awkward it might look to anyone who finds me lay

Just as Sirius was about to hurry back to Gryffindor tower to retrieve the Map, he saw the branches on the Whomping Willow freeze and then Pomfrey hurried back to the Great Hall.
Once the coast was clear, Sirius tugged the invisibility cloak off and hurried over to the tree. The branches were swaying slightly and he knew it wasn't because of the wind. There were a few sticks on the ground near the knot, so he quickly levitated the largest one to stop the Willow's movements.

Derek Stiles had just gotten back from caduceus USA. He walked over to a settee, strategically placed well, just left where ever it was put, and flopped down onto it. He could smell the stale air trapped within the spongy cushions, and welcomed it, that smell that lingered around his apartment and reminded him he was in his own corner of existence. Sighing, he forced himself to not get comfortable and get up.
Over the next few minutes he managed to get something to eat out of his barely stocked fridge and get into some pajamas that really needed washing, being a skilled surgeon didnt leave in the best of times. He overlooked things in his apartment, like the lack of food he had, and that the bed seemed to dip in the middle. As he got into the old hunk of furniture he found out about the dip, because as soon as he put his weight on the mattress, the bed collapsed beneath him.
Oww how did that happen? He picked himself up and rubbed the small of his back.

Hi Itachi, un, Deidara said, nuzzling the weasel gently. Whatcha doing, un?
Trying to watch TV, Itachi said in an irritated tone, hoping it would make the blonde go away.
Instead, Deidara merely climbed over the couch, flopping down next to the weasel. Can I sit with you, un?
Deidara grinned and sat up, snuggling into the Uchihas side. Thanks, un.
Itachi silently wrapped an arm around the blondes oh-so-feminine waist, pulling him even closer to the weasel. Deidara took this opportunity to climb into the Uchihas lap, snuggling into Itachis chest. Youre being awfully quiet, un, he remarked

Choice?If I have one frustration as a gay man, it's the constant insistence that homosexuality is a choice. I wouldn't be bothered by this, however, if not for the fact that it is often used as a justification for slandering homosexuals, for judging them, for continuing to keep homosexuality in the domain of the immoral. The simple reality is that homosexuality is not a choice. Perhaps a closer look into what it is like to be a homosexual will help to disabuse some few people of this notion.Choice?11 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
I do not recall the day I chose to be gay, just as I doubt there is a single heterosexual in the world that recalls the day he or she chose to be straight. There was no moment when I thought to myself, "I will be a homosexual." There was, instead, just a subtle progression of development that ultimately ended in the realization that I am gay. I can remember being as young as five or six years old and having crushes on other guys. I had a few crushes on female teachers, but overwhelmingly my heart w

Locked in a coffin

0 messages, from you.
All that's there is a dim lit screen, with a highlighted name, telling me I got a text from Mike. It's not you, so I don't care.
The morning goes on. I hear denial mixed with arrogance, sun-kissed with a bit of disappointment, as the radio DJ rages on about another American holiday, filled with unrequited wants, stale candy, and broken organs. Ironically, through all the pessimism, it reminds me of you, but still no call graces the face of my device. Maybe you forgot, or maybe I am just imagining that you'll remember at all. But the day is still early, the hours still young and restless.

The Laws of Anime
1. Law of Metaphysical Irregularity
The normal laws of physics do not apply.
2. Law of Differentiated Gravitation
Whenever someone or something jumps, is thrown, or otherwise is rendered airborn, gravity is reduced by a factor of 4.
3. Law of Sonic Amplification, First Law of Anime Acoustics
In space, loud sounds, like explosions, are even louder because there is no air to get in the way.
4. Law of Constant Thrust, First Law of Anime Motion
In space, constant thrust equals constant velocity.

The larger a mechanical device is, the faster it moves. Armored Mecha are the fastest objects known to human science.

Tweek been back to normal now and has been with Craig a lot, basically he's barely with us now, yet you don't see them a lot after school or during lunch, practically never, I guess, they say their in the library.

I kept my armor on when surfing through the dimension of space, hoping to catch Terra in time before he did something that resulted in Aqua's words being true. I just couldn't believe she would think he was being influenced by the darkness. Terra had every right to be a Keyblade Master just as much as she did. I personally sighed with shame towards her behavior. She was letting the whole title get to her head; I was sure of it. Keeping my balance on my keyblade, I managed to pull out the Wayfinder she had made for the three of us. It was sort of damaged and dented around the edges, smudges of dirt over the brilliant emerald material. I felt sort of guilty in treating it this way, but I knew it couldn't be avoided from all the battles I have endured lately.
I rarely wanted to pull it out, since I was scared I might lose it. I've been known to lose things after all...
Make It Worth ItInstead of this discrimination towards other's beliefs,Make It Worth It3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why don't we just accept,
Instead of building on grief?
Instead of treading on the lower to make yourself king,
Why don't we choose to live in a community,
Of love and equality?
Instead of getting your power from cruel words
Sent to bring your friends down,
Why don't we lift the spirit
And renew yours as well?
In this generation of careless people,
We eat each other to get to the top.
We have decided that bringing others down,
And pushing others away,
Will get us higher up on the scale.
We have come to the conclusion,
That pointing out others flaws
Will boost our self-esteem,
And make us look like
The better person by comparison.
We have decided that the only possible way
To express our feelings,
Is to point out every little wrong from others,
To make us feel like we're right.
But by doing this,
We're not right.
None of us are.
Far from it actually.
By making others look bad,
