As Miss. Jones exited my doors, the Doctor and I found ourselves alone .again. It is never easy when a companion leaves, either because they should or they have to. The worse is when they are taken from us like with Adric, Katarina and Sara Kingdom. I noticed that the Doctor had neglected to put my shields back up which prompted a memory in my processors .a Time event from long ago. It would be painful for me, but it would lift the spirits of my Time Lord. And since this was the only Time I could do it, I went for it.
"Doctor, do you remember from your fifth incarnation the event of the black hole and supernova that happened at the exact time?"
He paused then answered, " Yes, I do. Why do you ask?"
"Well, just hold on."
With that I collided and merged with another TARDIS. Only it wasn't just any TARDIS, it was my past self. An alarm sounded as I rolled through the Vortex, momentarily out of con

"You want to do what?!"
He came back to the stables where I had been patiently waiting and told me his plans. I could feel the radiation as it ravaged each cell of his body. He was in great pain which I tried to help with but could only do so much. He needed to regenerate but he was holding back and refusing.
"Doctor, do you even realize how many companions you have had in your past?"
"Yes and I want to see how each of them is doing. All I'm asking is for you to help me, TARDIS. You shouldn't have too much trouble. Lock onto their bio-signatures and materialize."
"You're going to hold off your regeneration until I do this, aren't you?"
His silence answered my question. I reluctantly started the procedure by locking on to each bio-signature I could find. My fear was growing with each minute that passed as he held off the regenerative process. We r

Toris paused before the closed door, gathering the strength he would need. The welts and bruises covering his flesh screamed in protest at what he was about to do. Who was he kidding? Some of the scars hadn't healed yet. Some never would. But one thing spoke louder than the scars- the voices of his people. He saw their faces every time he closed his eyes, heard their voices at every waking moment. They cried for release. There was weeping, but there was also strength. They were hurt, but determined. The parents whispered to their children in the sweet, true Lithuanian tongue. The children in turn, though barely old enough to understand, were singing in happy defiance.
Vienas Rusas, antras Rusas,
Pilnas Rusu autobusas!
Nei mesytes, nei duonytes,
Tik raudonos velevytes!
One Russian, two Russians
A bus full of Russians!
There's neither meat nor bread
Just little red flags!
As he thought of all this, an old song rang in his mind

Legalized Love They are one of the strongest and cutest couples I know. They complement each other flawlessly in both a physical and a mental sense. They've been together for over ten years and, although they just were officially married less than a month ago, they've considered themselves married for at least five years. They are always smiling with each other, willing to do whatever it takes to make the other happy, and even own & run a business together. Yes, these two lovely ladies are a match made in heaven; however, they had to go to a different state to be married because their state does not perform gay marriages. Gay marriage should be legalized in every state because love is not based on gender, old-time customs change, and legalizing it would take the world one step closer to being a safe place for every individual.Legalized Love3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

Studies in PokespeechAlmost everyone is aware of the fact that, as many Pokémon were named for their cries, Pokémon speech often consists of their name spoken over and over. I have long found the subject of Pokéspeech to be a fascinating one, as it is clear that Pokémon have much more to say than mere animals. In fact, I envision a world where humans and their Pokémon may freely communicate. Pokémon seem highly adept at picking up new languages, able to clearly understand their trainers in a remarkably short amount of time. Some wild Pokémon have come into contact with enough humans through battling that they already understand a large amount of human speech without being trained! But despite this wonderful aptitude, their vocal restrictions prevent us from being to understand them quite as well.Studies in Pokespeech5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

As a spirit of the Thousand Year Puzzle and a guardian for a living human, Atemu never really had what could be qualified as "dreams". After all, he did not even need to sleep as he was, since he was only a soul of a being whose body had long ago disappeared in the sands of Egypt. However… as of late, since he had held up the three God Cards to the Tablet of Memory, he had been… Well, "dreaming" was not an accurate word, as he really did not sleep. "Seeing" was a bit more accurate, as he would often be drifting aimlessly in the deep recesses of the Puzzle when these visions would come to his consciousness.

Everyone was having more sex than Hanna.
Well, technically everyone was having more sex than Hanna and Alex.
The two of them kept trying and failing to do so, mostly due to Hanna's insecurity and fear. It was irrational, he kept telling himself, because he wanted to have sex with Alex. In fact, he thought about it all the time, but when it got down to actually doing it, Hanna flaked out. He didn't know if it was fear of pain or humiliation or what, but whatever it happened to be, it sucked. Because of this, the prior night's attempt had been cut short. At least Hanna hadn't cried—though he wanted to when he saw the underlying shadow of disappointment beneath Alex's patient expression—but it was still pretty awful to have to push Alex away again, after he'd been doing everything the way it should be done. Hanna felt like he was punishing Alex and repeatedly assured him that it was not his fault. Alex seemed alright wi

Venusaur ReportVenusaur (the Seed Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Grass/Poison-type Pokémon found among grassy fields and forests within the Kanto region. Renowned for their powerful strength and devastating Solar Beam attack, Venusaur are dangerous creatures that won't think twice about slamming their enormous bulk into the nearest opponent if needed. They might not be the strongest fighters in terms of sheer power, but with the ability to store enough solar energy to power a small amusement park, the only thing that will really spoil the fun of these brutes is the intense heat of a Fire-type Pokémon, and even then not so much!Venusaur Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
When the flower bud on the backs of Ivysaur finally blooms, it releases a powerful fragrance that can be smelled from up to 250 feet away; when Ivysaur smell this fragrance, it causes a chemical reaction in their brains that forces growth hormones to be produced at an astronomical rate.

Hiei looked up at the mention of his name. "What do you think of Keiko-chan? She's pretty cute, ne?" Hiei frowned. "Hn," he replied, turning his back on the fox spirit. Kurama could sense that his friend was scowling. "You know, Hiei, my mother often said, 'If you make faces like that, young man, your face will get stuck that way!'" "Hn," was Hiei's response.Frowning Faces, Evil Kitsunes5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Lunatone ReportLunatone (the Meteorite Pokémon) is an uncommon Rock/Psychic-type Pokémon found among meteor craters within the Hoenn, Unova and Kalos regions as well as the Sinnoh region on rare occasions. Though utterly bizarre in appearance and mysterious in regards to origin, Lunatone are fascinating creatures that easily take the cake when it comes to bringing the best of the Psychic-type to the forefront of Rock-type battles. They might not have the skills needed to put up much of a fight against other fully-evolved Pokémon, but at the very least, these beasts can easily make life a nightmare for any creature foolish enough to fight them in the light of a full moon!Lunatone Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Lunatone and Solrock are mysterious creatures whose origins are both complicated and relatively ambiguous, but at the moment, all that can be said is that they obviously have extraterrestrial connections.

Xatu ReportXatu (the Mystic Pokémon) is a rare Psychic/Flying-type Pokémon found among savannahs and ancient ruins within the Johto region as well as the Ruin Valley of the Sevii Islands, the Sinnoh and Unova regions on rare occasions and possibly the Hoenn region. Completely mysterious in nature and enigmatic in behavior, Xatu are fascinating creatures that take the act of fortune-telling to a whole new level of awkwardness in battle and life in general. They might not be able to tell you what day you will die or when you will get married, but...well, actually that's the point; even if you ask, you likely will never get a clear answer!Xatu Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Magneton ReportMagneton (the Magnet Pokémon) is a relatively rare Electric/Steel-type Pokémon found near power plants and major sources of electricity within most parts of Japan, North America and Europe. With triple the power and more electricity than one can shake a stick at, Magneton are surprisingly powerful creatures that can easily deliver serious punishment to anyone foolish enough to get in their way. They might not look like they're something to be feared, but after you see a swarm lay waste to a town, you'll certainly think again; when it comes to jolting everything around them into submission, this is one trio that truly takes things to a new electrifying level!Magneton Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This

I saw Love on the road
her long hair gathered in strands
her youthful face some what distraught
I greeted her before inquiring what was wrong
Young one she whispered who deserves love?
I thought back on what I was taught
No one I replied.
Huge amber orbs pooled with blue gazed into mine.
Who then needs love?
I looked to the mountains and the sea
I glimpsed the birds and the trees
I saw a man walking with his son
a woman kissing a lady
and in the rain teens laughing, dancing crazily wearing the strangest things
I replied fairly certain.
And that is when Love grasped my hand her skin warm and cool startled me.
Come she said pulling me toward an unknown path.
Where are we going?
She would not reply we ran through fields
and flew through clouds
she then turned back to me.
From where do you speak?
My heart and mind I instantly replied.
This would not be sufficient for others of your kind have you asked God?
Glancing passed her I saw a rainbow in the place where rain was before.

She hesitated as she looked at the familiar face.
"I do though "
Her eyes threatened to overflow as she gazed upon her old friend, "I do too "
"It's alright I will be ok. And so will you"
They were the words of a best friend, a childhood confidante and perhaps the soul-mate we all search for but seldom find
So they stood underneath the shade of the trees on that brilliant sun kissed afternoon, as the breezy summer air blew as carefree as always.
Yet their spirits hitched and snapped like strings of crippled kites that could never fly away into the forgetful blue far from the conventions of the world.
The filtered sun rays peeked through the leaves and hit their faces as they gazed upon each other for what would perhaps be the last time in their lives
She gently kissed her on the cheek and let her lips carelessly brush against the side of her small mouth as she smiled that old familiar smile.

Dragonair ReportDragonair (the Dragon Pokémon) is a rare Dragon-type Pokémon found among lakes and seashores within the Johto, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos regions. Adored by trainers and collectors alike for their elegant appearances and seemingly otherworldly abilities, Dragonair are majestic creatures that more than make up for a lack of pure offensive strength with potent attacks and a warm disposition. You might never get to see one of these beasts in the wild, but it likely won't be too difficult to recognize their handiwork; after all, it's not like there are a lot of Pokémon that can suddenly change the weather without having to use a move to do so!Dragonair Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
When Dratini evolve, they leave the safety of their waterfall homes and travel far out into the wild, searching for a clean lake or pleasant seashore to take residence in.

The sky was dyed in the purples of twilight but for a few long clouds that burned orange with the last of the dying rays of day. The stars were beginning to dot the velvet sky and twinkled as they appeared one by one. The evening air was cool and flowed through the streets to mingle with the waves of heat the cobblestones had gathered in the day and now released back into the falling night. The lanterns of Death City glowed brighter as the stubborn embers in the sky began to dim. The city had come to life as the citizens left their homes to mingle and enjoy the cool evening.
Soul and Maka walked arm-in-arm through the suddenly bustling streets all but oblivious to the spectacular desert beauty or to the curious looks of passersby. They took their time winding through the streets and talking about everything and nothing at the same time. By the time they reached the restaurant, night had fallen completely.

Author's Note: Inspired after I wrote the fic To Raise a Star. It was a one shot and now I wish I had made it a drabble series but oh wells! There are hardly any past Black Star fics out there so here I go with a short series of young Black Star drabbles. Mild manga spoilers on Black Star's past.
It should be noted, if you didn't know, that Sid was the one who brought Black Star to Shibusen. Not only that, but he was around 11 or 12 years old (he mentions in one of the chapters that he's 25). Also, we see Sid in flashbacks as a mentor/father figure towards Black Star. So, here it comes- Parental!Sid, younger Black Star, and a splash of Sid/Nygus here and there. ENJOY!

Dangerous to approach on even the fairest of days, Houndoom are menacing beasts that will gladly burn and devour anything foolish enough to stand in their way. They certainly might not be made to take much in the way of physical punishment, but the last thing you'll ever want is to go toe-to-toe with one of these beasts without plenty of protection against fire; don't expect any Burn Heals or berries to make much of a difference after these hounds are through, because if you ever get burned by them, you might as well consider it a permanent scar!Houndoom Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Though generally ignored by most trainers because of their weak powers and limited offenses, Delibird are interesting creatures that seem to get a kick out of helping others that are lost in the middle of nowhere by providing food.
