Itachi's DeathWhy am I hereItachi's Death8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Was this your plan all along
To play with my mind
Maybe Im wrong
I was always in your shadow
I still looked up to you
Then my vision of you was shattered
My world was torn in two
Dad never said he loved me
He only loved his other son
And now in my mind
The memories weigh a ton
The memories of blood
In my heart they are kept
I look solemnly back
On those nights that I wept
I wish that I had died that night
I would not have done this to you
This was my only goal in life
I wish that wasnt true
Because of you Ive lost everything
My family, and my friends
I lost them so I could be here
These feelings come and go like trends
As you lay here, slowly dying
I know that I will never know
Why you did all of these things
Or about the feelings you failed to show
You said you were the obstacle
I had to overcome
I guess that in the end
That battle was won
I know that maybe you didnt have
The kind of love you needed
But I still couldnt help but wonder why

To the song 1985 by Bowling for Soup
Tsunade just hit the wall
She never had it all.
One Prozac a day,
Boyfriend was DOA
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned 24,
Never rescued one man
What happened to her plan?
She was gonna be a medic.
She was gonna be a star.
She was gonna ride her slug
To all the coolest bars.
Her crony Shizune is now the enemy
Looks at her average life,
And nothing has been all right since
Way before Iruka,
There was Chouza, Shikaku,
And Kyuubi still on killing sprees
Her genin, in Med School,
They tell her that she's uncool,
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985
She's done all the jutsus,
She knows every sign,
She went out with Dan,
Not a big Jiraiya fan.
Thought she'd lend a hand
In battle to a wounded man.
Where's the miniskirt made of snake skin?
Who's that Emo kid who's training with Oro-kun?
When did Itachi go Nuke?
Whatever happened to ramen, vodka, and Nawaki?

"Dammit!" Kakashi muttered, burrying his head under his white, lumpy pillow.
The alarm clock in his bedroom had been set for 8 a.m, not 2 a.m. After one minute of the constant, irksome beep, he slammed his hand down on the 'snooze' button.
'I'm never going to be able to go back to sleep' he thought, rubbing his eyes. He walked gracelessly towards the bathroom having to feel his way along the walls. His room was pitch black and he could only faintly see outside the window above his full-size bed. The light from the moon had been carpeted by dark, shadowy clouds. Kakashi stepped into the bathroom, the tile seemed ice-cold against his warm feet creating an unpleasant contrast. He lifted his left hand, flicking on the bathroom lights. His eyes squinted, not used to the light. As Kakashi shuffled his feet towards the bathroom sink, he heard a noise outside. It was very faint and sounded like a whimper coming from a young child. Kakashi stood silently trying to decide whethe

"Shove that pride somewhere, will ya! He's gonna kill you on the spot if you try to fight him!" He tried his best to get through, but the efforts were futile.
"The exams aren't going anywhere, ok! We'll try again together next year, just as now. No shame in that, Shino." He looked in his direction, but paid him no attention, which made Kiba even more motivated to just go down there and beat all the high and mightiness out of Shino.
Furious to no end, Kiba wasn't just gonna stand by and watch some random shinobi kill his best friend in the preliminaries of the Chunin Exams. No, he wasn't gonna let something like what happened to Lee the previous year happen to Shino, never.
Without warning, Kiba appeared behind Shino. It all happened so fast that no-one was albe to prev

I narrowed my eyes. A cat? No, this wasn't a cat. It was tiny. The thing couldn't have hurt a fly. As it cautiously bat at my hand, an amused smirk curled upon my face as I reached for a nearby kunai. The ball of gray fluff wouldn't know what it hit. As I lazily poised the kunai in my hand to throw it down, it turned its eyes up at me.
Shit. My eyes narrowed further as I tried to mentally steel myself for the next move, but instead of running away like I hoped it would have, it lay down with its head on my hand. I was nearly fuming with the indignation of it. Why did this creature think it could simply approach me, Itachi Uchiha like this?
But, I had to give it credit. It was brave. I pulled my hand back and the surprised creature's h

Lee had faced many obstacles in his life, and one way or another surpassed them all. There were now three things to train for, three things that made Lee push himself harder and harder each day: Gai-sensei's recognition, defeating Neji, and the Chunnin exams.
Both Tenten and Neji passed on their second try, while Lee had failed three times now. He promised himself he would not let that number get to four. He would pass, and he would defeat Neji, and if he couldn't, he would do five million laps around...no. If he would defeat his eternal rival if it cost him his life.
That goal only got farther away the day Neji was made Jounin. Any normal person would have given up that day, but Rock Lee wasn't any normal person. When it was Lee's turn to congratulate him at the little party the team had thrown, he didn't wrap Neji in a big bear hug like their sensei had; he didn't say a word, he simply looked Neji in the eye, smiled, and stuck out his hand for him to shake.

"Can you write a bit neater?" he asked giving them back. Ériu nodded.
"I was planning on writing a neater copy when we got back to the lab " she said.
"Good," Doc replied, then started walking forth with the others following. Ériu looked around taking notes of things with a soft sigh. But then she stopped and looked at something. Doc looked at her.

A basic skill for a ninja is to conceal your presence and hide.
Kakashi stood in the clearing, taking note of his genin's positions. Everyone seemed to have hidden themselves well. Certainly, he doubted anyone of their respective levels less than a tracking specialist would notice them. Sakura under that bush, Sasuke up in that tree, Naruto... standing... right... in front of me. With his arms crossed and a very strange smile on his face. His stance suggested either he was completely confident about his chances, or that he simply wasn't going to try anything yet.
Eh... Shouldn't you be hiding like the other two?
Nah. I figure that if you're really a jounin, you'll know where we are no matter what. Besides, I'm still waiting on something before I can make my move.
Kakashi blinked. Hell, it was his time to waste. If that's what he wanted to do, then okay. Well, if that's the case, I hope you don't mind if I read while we wait? He

From the lip of the well, its wood now smooth and slippery with ice, Kagome watches.
Snow is pretty. It is even prettier at night, when the frosty glitter of stars plays off a myriad tiny crystals and everything is covered in untouched, glimmering white. No contrasts, save for the clear line of the horizon where white meets the inky black of the night sky. No grey, just the sharp transition from light to dark, leaving no room for hidden meanings or blurry half-truths. No shadows apart from the black outlines of trees with bare branches, almost spidery in their nakedness but not quite.
Kagome tears her thoughts away from spiders, seeking the numb serenity of a few moments before. She could almost touch it, her personal nirvana, but again it has slipped from her grasp, replaced by thoughts of blood and love and spiderwebs in the dark.

Whoever these shinobi were I would not let them near the others, I would stand my ground until either me or they were dead. This wave of shinobi were far weaker than we were ever led to believe the enemy would be and me and Arthur-san were taking them down with only some difficulty. As I struck down an enemy, who was using a wind jutsu, I felt an enemy appear directly behind me to strike my neck. Even with all my speed I was too late to dodge his strike which hit right on target. Along with a brief sharp pain, I felt the familiar cool burning right behind my eyes and once again exploded with the force of a large firework.The woman who struck me flew back with a horrifying scream as the flesh on her arms was cracked and burnt almost instantly.

Harry Potter AnalysisThe wonderful world of Harry Potter has touched countless lives upon its release. It contains many colorful elements from magic and fantasy to fighting bald snake people with little wooden sticks. Yet at the same time, despite touching so many countless lives, the ever-popular series has not been without its fair share of criticism, a large portion of which may not have been completely unfounded. Harry Potter has been said to promote more than a few more shady practices. It wouldn't hurt to explore and prod some of them in scholarly analysis.Harry Potter Analysis5 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

Harry Potter and friends often use their wands to solve problems and, more often than not, create quite a few of them.

Guide to the AneemeiHello. Today we'll be going into the depths of the jungle in search of an exotic and incredibly wild beast in its natural habitat. It is a very curious creature indeed, sometimes it takes great care to make itself the most noticeable thing in plain sight, other times it hides amongst us, camoflaging itself as "one of us." That is, until it is properly baited and/or the creature assumes it is only in the presence of other members of its species, in which it will then throw caution to the wind and commence returning to its true nature.Guide to the Aneemei5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

But somewhere inside of me I no longer wish to love or be loved.
Why? It's because I'm selfish and I only care about myself.

I no longer want to experience THAT part of life anymore.
I don't want to be hurt.

Most fans who contribute to the brony fandom do so through art, animations or music. Some Bronies like me, who have no drawing skills and equipment, no money for good Video editing software, and a very limited knowledge of music theory, still want to give back to the brony community. Another way to contribute is through voice acting in the works created by others. Voice acting is a very fun way to bring life to the various pony related works, whether you choose to portray a main character, or an OC.
Now, I’m not that great at guide-making, but I will leave my contact info so you can message me for any questions.
Tools and Materials needed:
• A good quality Microphone
o Microphone Pop Filter
• A recording program
• Basic level acting skills
The first thing to do if you really want to voice act for the brony community is to get the proper equipment. Good quality microphones
