he is given but one gift
no toys, no games for him to play
but a guitar to grant his wish.
The boy is fifteen years today
he was nine when his fingers bled
he is a rocker born and made
writing songs inside his head
Now a man and twenty-three
he's losing site of fame
will he quit to feed the family,
or try and beat this game?
Thirty now and getting old
but the record deal is signed
thirty cents per CD sold
but for his dream this is fine.
Thirty-five and world renowned
he thinks he's doing fine
but with alcohol and drugs he's drowned
he's almost lost his mind.
Forty years of life have gone
he's remembered his life goal
not to be a rich rocker stoned
but a punk who has a soul.
His life is gone, his tombstone set
he's six feet under-ground
loved by kids he's never met
the man who defined sound
User Story IdeaI have an idea for a group or story project that involves a group of people who play as characters in a constructed world. There are many ways for the story to go but I would like that it be settled in a democratic fashion by a deciding vote of anyone who wants to participates in this group. Basically, the participants create user avatars as their player character and have free creative license with it. However, there is a catch. Player characters can not be over powered or change the plot in a significant way such as Godmodding or destroying stuff without the consent of the players (i.e. blowing up a nation or continent for 'the evilz') or killing off characters without consent.User Story Idea1 year ago in Settings More Like This

FrancescoThe rough linen and wool warmed his frail, pallid body as he lay stretched out on the makeshift bed in his little church. His eyes, which he kept close, were burning and swollen. Blood still seeped from his open wounds. It was late in the autumn afternoon, leaves falling from the trees in their spectacular array of colors. They were crimson, orange, and saffron like the fine clothes that gay daughters of nobility wore when the summery days had been warm and sweet. Snow would soon fill the valley, and the mountains already wore their white caps of winter. His donkey stood at the foot of the bed, and his dearest friend knelt at his side. He could barely see either of them, but their scents told him that he was safely in their care. He could also hear his donkey nervously shifting around on its hooves.Francesco5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Companion to RP PrimerSpecial Topic: Character DeathCompanion to RP Primer5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
All actions have consequences. Sometimes for one's character, those consequences are fatal. In some cases, that's what the players want and everyone is okay with that. However, one has to step lightly. People won't always take kindly someone killing their character because, in essence, you cut them out of all future interactions on that plotline. Thus, it's common courtesy to do something like this:
Player 1 says OOC: Hey, if Jimmy does that to Davie, then Davie will kill him. Are you okay with this?
Player 2 says OOC: No, I don't like that. What if Jimmy does *insert action*?
Player 1 says OOC: Then Davie will not kill him.
Player 2 says OOC: Okay, good.
Obviously, there are times when Player 2 will be fine with his/her character dying. Even if a player has more than one character, it's still important to ask. A character's death can also be arranged beforehand.

Every aspiring writer has met her at least once, whether in his own works or in those of others. The alluring temptation of a perfect character taunts the author from one side while his muse urges him to keep writing from the other. Who wouldn't love her? She's the most beautiful, talented, fantastic woman in the universe, with not a flaw in sight. Every woman wants to be her; every man wants to marry her, so why would anyone want to kill her? Who would want to murder Mary Sue?
I would. I and many greater authors have been working hard to keep this succubus in her proper place: the trash can. Mary Sue is one of the worst enemies of good fiction, second only to poor spelling and grammar. And the seductress tempts even the most cautious writer. Her many disguises can make her difficult to spot, allowing her to weave her way into every plot twist and turn, slowly destroying the author's work. By the time shes found, she may have done so much damage that the

Role-Play Etiquette: A PrimerRoleplaying has all sorts of applications whether it be for therapeutic reasons or just for fun. In addition, roleplaying can heavily parallel theatre in the behavior of people doing it. At many places such as LiveJournal and forums, people are looking for RPing as a way to have a good time with some great people. One of the best parts about RPing is that it works like collaborative writing. For that reason, there are a few things to keep in mind.Role-Play Etiquette: A Primer5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Section 1: You and Your Character
The whole point of RPing is to take on the guise of someone who is not you. Some people even prefer to call the characters "puppets" and "muses" which highlights the relationship that the player has with the character.
It's important to remember that you are in full control of your character. A player shows good form by being true to the construct of the character's personality, but a player is also expected to take responsibility for what he/she writes. This is probably the biggest rule of RP etiquett

1. Must have at least a brooch and a senshi collar!! (A tiara is not required but it is encouraged.) Other than that, there is not a set fuku. Every dream/nightmare is different (even the re-occurring ones).
2. Must be based off of an image (either actual or artist created) of outer space. (Example: My Sailor Pillar Rabbit is based off of a picture of the Pillars of Creation I saw in a magazine.) Same images can be used, but different senshi/knight/critter designs are a MUST!
3. They can be female or male.
4. They can be aliens, fantasy creature hybrids, partial (not complete) furries, etc. they just need to have some sort of human characteristic to them.
5. They should either have a beautiful dream or a terrifying/powerful nightmare that they want to follow through with either overcoming it or making it come true.
** Just because they may be classed as a nightmare senshi does not mean they HAVE to be evil. Some nightmares are just darker h

Now, I have noticed that there seem to be a lot of design conflicts on the site regarding that someone has *le gasp!* copied your character. Oh, the humanity! How dare they?! How dare they also have a character set who are only black, white, and red because that makes them so deep and edgy. How dare their animal also have a star/heart/diamond on its forehead? How dare they make a character with rainbow legs/tails?! How dare they have a fursona with a "dark" side when they become enraged? How dare their sparkle fursona be black with lime green, hot pink, and cyan markings?! How. Fucking. Dare. They?!
So, you call them out on their obvious theft of your character, and then things get spicy. You get barraged by an army of white knights. You send your white knights after their white knights. Then, when all that is going on, you get a nice, big taste of "trolling" because you're all probably worked up and obsessi

I have no face. There was a time when I may have owned one, but this is a fuzzy half-memory. In fact, it may be entirely an invention of fantasy. These days, regardless of my history, I know for a fact that I have no face. However, I have been granted a name: The American Obesity Problem. And I am growing in the United States. You may have seen me on television. You may have been witness to my disconcerting back cleavage and mystified by the seamless transition my legs make from my calves into my ankles. You probably saw my unsettlingly large, shelf-like behind as it strained against my tight Capri pants that I swore I would fit into someday and, when I didn't lose the weight, decided to wear anyway because, "If I spend more than $30 on pants I better damn well find a way to squeeze into them." You may have caught a glance of ponytail resting on my back, or a peek at several of my lower chins. But
