After the First VoyageTime; An unstoppable, uncontrollable and unpredictable force of events, spiraling together into an unending ring of events to come and events past. Is this force an illusion, a sense of direction, or perhaps a state of being? Who could possibly say? All we know is that what ever force time maybe, it is inevitable.After the First Voyage3 years ago in Sketches More Like This

There are 3 planets Uran. Ja, and Heil. All of which are home to intelligent life forms. Uran is a large planet, roughly 7 times the size of earth, but with a much more city like environment.

Two teenagers were chasing a brown rabbit through the woods. They chased it for hours. The rabbit was fast. The rabbit was cleaver. The rabbit was small and thus it fit in places they could not. The boys were responsible for setting the rabbit loose. They were asked to catch it before their little sister found out her beloved pet was missing.
It was getting dark which would almost ensure their failure so the boys were getting a bit nervous. This could have made them prone to hasty decisions but at that moment the sun seemed to shine on them. The rabbit's attention was directed to a small fenced in garden. They saw it slip beneath one of the split-rails that bordered the produce.
"Oh that rabbit's mine!"
One of the boys climbed over the fence and crawled through the dirt through a lettuce patch. Suddenly his eyes met an old pair of tennis shoes that were covered in mud and missing laces. His eyes followed the shoes up the legs and torso of what he now saw to b

It's funny how one's form can portray their feelings for another
Many say that forms have no say in someone's feelings for a significant other
However, this thought can be very well disproved if looked into with interest
If all would allow, then I will gladly show you with all my progress
My own feelings have been shown best
In my form of a wolf dog with success
Laugh if you wish to, I won't give it a care
I'll just chuckle with my calm stare
I'm sorry to those who thought I meant another definition of forms
I don't wish to confuse anyone with the difference of terms
As I were, my form of the animal kind
Has made my life

Distance may be what separates me from my desire
However, I wouldn't let it cloud my determination
My eyes will always hold that warm and burning fire
I'll howl as I travel across this land of damnation
The fur upon my body will shelter me from the cold
Although, I bare nothing close to the canid family
I feel that I must be the one to be so very bold
Some may think this feeling I have to be for the lonely
I don't believe it to be of that aspect
It's mostly of how much strength I'm left to bare
This is something I wish many would expect
Unfortunately, the expectance is something to be rare
The form I take is of the humanity
But the soul that resides within
Is of the body that is called monstrosity

"Trinity!" A familiar voice cried out. "Where are you? Trinity?" I tried to answer through the darkness that surrounded me, but my lips made no noise. The voice kept getting closer and closer, and seemed to be coming from all directions. The voice sounded so soft and sweet, but was drenched in sadness and worry. I tried to run to it but couldnt move!
"Trinity!" It yelled again, sounding really close to me. "Where are you!?" It sounded as if it was crying, "I miss you, Trinity! Come home!" The voice yelled and started sobbing loudly. Another voice, a shaky, strong, deep male voice said, "She'll come back. She has to... She's our little girl..."

"So, whats up with this Jared guy?" Alaine asked sitting down beside me. After work I ran up to my room and changed. Jared was in there reading a book. He smiled at me when I came in, and he got up and made me a cup of tea. But I only said thanks, drank some of it, and turned to leave. He smiled and pulled me into a hug. I felt weird hugging him, but I did it anyway. Then I left.
"Nothing really. He was at the tavern last night, and a man had gotten mad because we wouldn't give him any alcohol, and the man was about to hit me when Jared had gotten up and protected me. Then he waited until I was done for the night, and he walked me home. I found out that he was in town to see his old friend, my uncle. He didnt have a place to stay, so I told him he could stay at my place. Thats all." I said and looked over sharply at Jayce, who seems to not like the man at all.

My tattered black converses, falling apart at the seams, make soft rhythmic taps as I walk.
Sunlight is filtering down through the browning leaves of autumn, lighting up my fire truck red hair- it's dyed of course.
My hair is styled in a casual disarray of long gelled up spikes, I don't have the stereotypical Mohawk, and instead my head is full of the long, thick hair stiff with gels and grease.
I glance around me, slightly nervous, but trying not to show it on the outside.
This; this street is generally full of assholes. They take one look at my styled hair, my tattered clothes, my piercings, my chains, me, and they sneer.
Trust me, if this wasn't the shortest path I wouldn't walk down their 'precious' preppy street.

Quickly, I ran back to the mirror and spent the next half hour miserably trying to get my hair to do something acceptable. Finally, I just placed a matching headband on top of my head, making sure I hadn't accidentally swept back any bangs, and lurked nervously on the top stair, jumping at every noise. At first, I sat down, but I was definitely way too nervous for that. So I ended up pacing back and forth, and was in the midst of doing so when the doorbell rang. I must've jumped a foot in the air. I heard the door open and I cautiously inched down the stairs, step by careful step. I slowly peeked around the corner and saw four people instead of the two I'd been expecting walk in.

He stood in the middle of a cross road
One of brotherhood and betrail.
She stood in the middle of a cross road,
One of family and triason.
They stare at each other with passion
And every once of doubt they had
Fades in the embracing darkness,
and becomes happiness
About the secret meeting of lovers.
He reaches out for her in letters
he sent a friend to keep a secret.
She read it and waited,
waited until the last second,
to burn the crumbled piece of paper.
Evidence of both their passionate love
and the threat of dead they had
If someone should discover
Such a secret and forbidden love.
If her identity is discovered by them,
she would be dead in a second.
He has already been discovered,
and if he shall retorn to Evernight,
He would be dead in matter of time,
but not without a fight.
What would faith store for them,
If they love has already been damned
By the ones that live in Evernight
And those withing the family of Black Cross.

All those nicknames means nothing to me

If only you could see it as clear as I do.
I fantasize of the time when it's right
To get married and have kids and a dog
I want a big german shepperd
and you want a small schnauzer.
I can't wait for it to come
To lay with you in front of a fire
To watch Re-runs of Friends at night
And see you tell our kids bedtime stories.
I want it all with you
from the big things to the small things
Because it's more than a crush to me
And if you could see that, we could make it
We could make it past the angry parents
the misapprensive friends and neighbours
the rumors and stares from the people
We could make it past it all....
If you could only not doubt that this,
this thing we have right here right now,
it's more than just a crush for me.
Sleep tonight my Love,
We wont fight anymore over this
Someday when I'm still right here, you'll see.
I'll call you in the morning at dawn

And I have another boy next to me
We're just friends and it's okay with me.
I like how his palm feels warm
as it's pressed against my shoulder
And how his fingers play with my skin
In that spot of bare skin in my neck
I like how his arm is tightly wrapped
Around my little tiny waist
Playing with the hem of my shirt
As it caress the bare skin underneath.
They are both just my friends
And it seems like I don't need more
For now, I want the little things
Those things most people give for granted
I don't want the big things anymore
Nor a ring or a husband, no kids and no house
I don't want to be the wife and mother
I just want the small things now.
I want to be the girl holding hands in the movies

Titus stepped out of the car and walked around back. Just as Rick was about to close the trunk, everyone took one last look at the deceased half-dragon. Titus shook his head. He was too overcome with grief and shame to even look at the body for long. His arms shook as he looked away and closed the trunk.
The adults all turned their attention to Drake and Crystal, who had not moved from where they had been sitting. Crystal sat close to Drake with an arm draped over his shoulder.

There is no question that the modern world is ruled by technology. Mobile phones, computers, and other devices are all used to manage the fast-paced lives of the 21st century. From practical to purely entertainment purposes, it is omnipresent in society. With latest equipment and knowledge, some have begun to wonder if it is time for a new type of art as well. In an age where the digital reigns supreme, video games should be inducted as a new and innovative art form.

At the small pond in the woods were Jake, Alex, and Theian. Jake and Alex sat on a log while Theian stood, his back turned to them, his head to the ground.
"So you're going to join Doulstraz ?" Alex asked sadly.
Theian sighed. "I don't know yet I'm still trying to figure out what I should do "
"You should stay with us, of course!" Alex exclaimed. "Jake and I are your friends, Theian, remember? 'Sides I thought it was Doulstraz who killed your mother?"
"Did he? I'm starting to wonder about that myself."
Alex stood up and walked over to Theian. "Theian don't go. Please " He begged, his voice becoming strained. Jake had never seen Alex like this. Was he really that sad about Theian possibly leaving? Jake stood up and walked up to Alex, placing a hand on his shoulder. Jake looked into Alex's eyes, noticing a great sadness swelling within them.

The following morning, they continued their pursuit of treasure. They continued on past a somewhat panicked village, who were warning them not to go further, because it will only end in their demise, and were speaking of the Kitsune Shrine. And they most of all, warned them of a beautiful, young woman, for she would not be as she seems. The knights, believing this to only be superstition, moved on through the vi

Jake panted as beads of sweat ran down from the top of his head. There were four unlit tiki torches lined up in front of him, two of which had been slightly charred on their sides. His father sat on the picnic table behind him, arms folded and his left leg resting over his right.
"You're still having a bit of trouble." Saulstrance said bluntly.
"I know, Dad It's just well." Jake said, breathing heavily and wiping the sweat from his forehead.
"Well, what?" Saulstrance asked.
"It's just that I'm not sure how I can learn this on my own! Can't you help me, even a little?" Jake asked.
"Jakol, it's not that I don't want to teach you. You see, half-dragons have far more complex and diverse powers than dragons. Perhaps, had you been born a full dragon, then I may have been more helpful in teaching you about your powers."

A can sit at a desk for hours,
Gazing off into the distance,
Thinking wonderous things,
Of distant locations,
Past, present and future times,
And even though I'd be there in body,
I would never be there in mind,
As it is off travelling the world,
and indulging in foreign cultures,
Oh, how it wanders,
I wish my body can go on the adventures my mind experiences,
My mind returns to my absent body,
And I am yet again,
Bound to this dull place...
And my mind no longer adventures,
And there is just silence, amongst the room of chattering voices.

And I let him love me
However he wants to love me.
Because all I do or will ever care about
Is that he loves me

And a big smile on my face

If I could there's one thing I would do for her, I would turn into flesh and bones for her. I would do anything I could, to become human and be by her side. That way I could touch her, embrace her, speak the words she needs to hear for real. If I could I would do it.

Everyone turned around to find an older woman standing in the doorway. She had a slightly wrinkled face and long, gorgeous silvery hair.
"Umm Can we help you with something?" Titus asked.
The woman didn't say anything.
"Was there someone you were looking for?" Sarah asked.
"Yes. I was looking for him." Said the woman, pointing an aged finger at Titus.
"Me?" Titus asked, having no clue as to why a woman he had seemingly never met would be looking for him.
Titus had no idea who this woman was. He almost certainly had never met her before today and was baffled by how someone he had never met seemed to know him. He assumed that she could have been one of the residents of Baker Valley coming to thank him and his friends.
Drake carefully watched this old woman. Unlike his father, he was certain that he had seen her somewhere before. He tried to recall just where. Soon it came to him. He was certain he knew who she was.
