Dr. Juan Guerrero read that headline splashed across the front page of a discarded copy of the magazine, Vanity and Vein:
WHO IS THE PLAGUE DOCTOR?
The infamous Repo Man an urban legend, a figment of the mind's eye, a ghoul, a boogeyman was sketched upon the cover, with a pair of hollow, soulless eyes and a long, vulturine beak and a dramatic, flowing cape.††It was amusing really, as it looked nothing like him.††Artists are a strange and imaginative lot, but not very smart.

Fluttershy sat in her house looking out into the garden. Small woodland creatures frolicked about as usual around a myriad of colorful flowers. It was the end of spring, and all the blooms were having their final hurrah. She sighed, she enjoyed these quiet moments in her house more than almost anything else. A cool breeze wafted in, it smelled pleasantly of spring. She inhaled deeply.
A large boom shattered the calm. Animals scattered in all directions to get away from it's source. Fluttershy looked around wildly in the confusion. Out of the sky a large blue something hurtled downwards.
She stared up in bewilderment before she realised where it was plummeting.
"Eeep!" she skidded backwards seconds before the thing crashed into the window, splintering the wood and sending various objects flying inwards. It was a blue box, above it the words "Police Public Call Box" sat in glowing letters. The double doors swung open. A brown stallion poked his head out.

Way from home.
The TARDIS doors swung open with a slow creak. The Doctor and Twilight peeked out, it was pitch black, there was a smell of damp age that lingered, and made the air thick and heavy.
"Where are we?" asked Twilight.
The Doctor ducked back into the TARDIS, grabbing his coat. "We're still in the library basement, we've moved in time, but not space." He reached his head into his pocket, popping out with the sonic screwdriver.
"But it seems like no one's been here in years." Twilight looked around into the darkness.
"A very likely possibility." The doctor said around the small tool. "A lot can change in fifty years, Twilight." he pressed the button on it's handle, with a ringing sound it sent a small beam of light into the dark.
Everything was covered in a thick layer of dust, worktables sat in various stages of decay, half opened books lay open atop them and in piles at various intervals along the floor. Cobwebs hung from everything making patterns against the wall as the lig

"Ah! Fresh air! exclaimed the Doctor as they reached the back alley. "I haven't been outside since the crash, it's nice to get out of that stuffy old pla-" He caught Twilight staring daggers at him. "Er, I mean, of course the house is lovely, but nothing like that fresh clean morning air!"
"Of course, Doctor." Twilight rolled her eyes. "So, Pinky, lead the way."
The pink pony took up the lead. "Okey-dokie! Follow me!" she set off bouncing down the alley.
"After you, Daylight." The Doctor ushered her forwards.
"It's Twilig-, oh you know what, just forget it." she marched after Pinkie, head in the air.
The Doctor looked down at Spike. "What did I do?"
"Fillies, can't live with um." Spike shrugged and followed.
The Doctor looked confused for a moment.Then he looked around, and realised everyone had left "Uhg, it seems some things are the same in every world." He raced to catch up.
Twilight and Pinkie reached the end of the alley. Pinky peeked her head around the corner.

Helix Exiting a planeswalk was never the same experience twice, and this was certainly no exception. A cloaked figure was flung from a hovering, five-pronged symbol that closed as soon as he was no longer in contact with it. There was a groan before the figure pushed himself off of the ground and onto his feet, dusting off his loose-fitting attire. He sighed as he looked around, examining his surroundings; this place was not altogether unfamiliar to him, in fact, he had taken up residence here in the ruins of the Consortium. After gaining his bearings, Jace chuckled dryly to himself as he headed down the path he would need to take to reach his current goal.

Twilight looked around as she walked down the old roads of Ponyville. On occasion she missed the large cityscape of Canterlot . Though Ponyville was indeed nice, with it's own charm, she could not escape that feeling of homesickness, the hustle and bustle of the city, the millions of ponies of all shapes and sizes, the buildings stretching into the clouds. She missed it. And yet, she had never been out of the city before her trip here. Canterlot and Ponyville were the only homes she knew."Perhaps all I need is a change of scenery." She mumbled to herself. "Ponyville is beginning to feel a little small."
The purple unicorn was shaken from her thoughts by a large boom. Something blue hurtled from the sky, leaving a trail of smoke in it's wake. It collided with something in the distan

''More Than A Feeling''
So this is a story about me, Hiiragi Kagami, a regular -well at least I think- schoolgirl. I get average grades, am not really a party-animal or something, and don't really have a bunchload of friends. Not really interesting, is it now?
Well, tomorrow's Izumi Konata's birthday, the birthday of the girl I'm finding to like in a more-than-friends way. It's kind of embarrassing and a burden on my shoulders, because I can't really tell anyone, or tell Konata about how I feel. I don't even know if she notices me.
Well, as tomorrow is her birthday, I'm on the hunt for the perfect gift.
''Kagamin~,'' Konata began to me ''you do remember tomorrow is my birthday?''
I sighed as I turned around in my chair to face Konata.
''Yes Konata, I do remember.'' I said, looking her straight into her green eyes.
''Good! And, do you perhaps already had bought me a gift? And if you did, may I know what it is?''

"You love me."
All these we've used as an excuse to be the dominant one.
You're older, shorter, feminane, much more beautiful.
I'm younger(if only by nine months), taller, thicker, much more lez worthy.
I'm taller, stronger, so I can easily pin your small frame down;
on the mattress, on the ground, on the wall..
Hold your wrists down, run my hands on your body; show you how small you really are.
//I've always loved our contrasts. My skin always looks so pale next to yours'. I love how it always looks like you have just the perfect sun tan, even in the winter.//
Wrestling. Cuddling. Holding. Any of these, no matter what, I know giggles would fill the air. I'd pin you, dominate you,
just try to force you into loving me.
I'm thicker, taller, more masculine. But I can't quite tell you how I really feel..
So, I guess you really must be stronger than me.

The Virtues of Both WorldsYin and yang. Light and dark. Hot and cold. Masculine and feminine. The universe is made up of many different opposing forces. None is ever able to eliminate the other entirely, and it is through their struggle that everything takes shape.The Virtues of Both Worlds3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Unfortunately, struggle claims many casualties, quite often unnecessarily. Perhaps the most visible struggle at the moment is that of masculine and feminine. Members of each sex have a plethora of complaints about the other, many of which are quite vicious. Many of the complaints, however, have a degree of truth within them. Despite the protests of adherents to Political Correctness, nearly every stereotype in existence has a grain of truth; were it not so, stereotypes would not exist in the first place.
The only thing that can get rid of conflict for any substantial amount of time is understanding, pure and undiluted. Understanding between m

I finger a strand of hair in my fingers boredly, not noticing... or even caring that it is not the standard chestnut tone, but a pale hue of gray.

My neon green eyes widen in surprise as I feel that each tooth has become a razor sharp in-scissor.
Well that can't be good.

I was making dinner at the moment. It was two or three hours since I'd gotten home and received the news. Jack sat on the couch out in the living room. I looked back through the archway and he looked bored.
We had decided together that he would be staying with me for these six days. So while I was busy making dinner, Jack talked on the phone. I didn't know who he was talking to; he refused to tell me for the moment. I didn't really mind, but I was still curious. I shrugged it off and went back to making dinner. I looked on the box of directions. I hadn't felt like making something from scratch tonight. I was too tired at the moment, and I was sure that Jack wouldn't mind.
I hear him say goodbye, though I didn't fully register it. I was too busy trying to measure something as perfectly as I possibly could. I felt that everything had to be right. I guess I didn't fully register the fact that his attention was now on me. I didn't notice when he stood up and b

When [Y/N] got home from school, I was up in her room. I could hear the front door open and shut noisily. Then her footsteps, and soon she was in the room. She wore a hollow smile. Even I could see through it, especially since she looked like she'd been crying. I asked her what was wrong. She hesitated before answering with a simple "nothing". I don't know if she was trying to keep me from getting curious or not, but if so it wasn't working.
"Are you sure?" I asked, standing up. She nodded and walked quickly to the bathroom. I sighed and sat back down on the bed, wondering what was wrong. Then I heard something.. A sniffle. If she was crying, I wanted to know who hurt her. I'll hurt them. I knocked on the bathroom door, and the faint sounds of crying stopped.

1. How does Your OC get into Gensokyo?
They could be born in Gensokyo, and nothing would be wrong about it. That's a proper thing to do, or having them be born in an alt Gensokyo would be fine. But what I've seen more than half of the Touhou OCs do is be gapped to Gensokyo by Yukari. How exactly did Yukari choose them specifically to be put in Gensokyo? Yukari doesn't just go around making human beings go in Gensokyo, she's trying to save Gensokyo from exposing the youkai to human beings, so why would she gap somebody in? Were they chosen ones? Were they born youkai? Are they some sort of magical creature? Gapping into Gensokyo is an absolute no-no, because if you research Gensokyo deep into the complex stuff, it implies that Yukari is protecting Gensokyo, not causing nauticaul nonsense to annoy people. And, if they did get gapped to Gensokyo for a specific reason.

The most noticeable features were the polka dotted suit and the hat. I took only a moment to get a good look at the being in front of me before I shook myself out of my daze.
