Dancing...Dancing through the darkness into the light.Dancing...5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Nothing to fear and nothing to feel.
Dancing forever more in the anguished mind of the fallen.
Nothing given and nothing taken.
Dancing back to the beginning of all the pain and sorrow.
Nothing gained and nothing lost.
Dancing to ease the ackwardness of youth in a state of perpetual loss.
Nothing to love and no one to hate.
Dancing lost in a raging river of solitude.
Nothing to say but goodbye.

During labor, my mother paced like the midwife ordered, until her feet wore jagged canyons in the rough hewn floor. When the time came, the midwife led her to stand on two great tins filled with egg whites as an offering for Marquesa the Fertile. My mother gave me life with one hand on the Brigantian midwife, drawing strength from she who blesses all mothers, and one hand on my father's shoulder, the god who ruled over the home with the strength of a hundred men.
Like the tides flooding the Sycrosian countryside, my mother's waters flowed and I fell into the salty ocean twixt the tins. They should have known then, my parents-- the outstretched fingers of Gellawyn the Wave, should have warned them-- but they were blinded by the joy of their first successful pregnancy after so many miscarriages. So it was that they

Theta System, Solean colony
Theta system, comprising six planets of varying size, and only one being inhabited by humans, was colonized approximately six months from the end of President Dashwood's term as President of Sol. The inhabited facilities on Theta IV, the one populated planet, were originally built by criminals. Ever since then, supplies had been flowing into the colony in order to build infrastructure. Among the first venues built was the dock for space ships.

ElectrodeTony Robarts (Electrode)Electrode2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Power-To manipulate electricity, both it's current and voltage. He can also use himself as a capacitor and/or grounding effect without harm to himself. Because he cannot generate electricity, he tends to stay near something that he can use to do that for him (such as an outlet or battery). However he doesn't need to use himself as a conduit to zap somebody. But he cannot manipulate metal nor bio-electrical reactions nor can he fly. His most impressive ability is to make a solid weapon (limited to melee, such as an axe or sword) out of electricity, razor sharp and weighing nothing, as long as he can hold the charge (as it drains him rather quickly). Although water doesn't necessarily stop him, strong fields of electromagnetism mess up his aim on any attacks more than arms reach.

He retains his size (as in volume) but can take on any shape he can imagine (although it tends to be simple). He does not react with other objects like the element however (as it would make him treat the world as friction-less, and other problems), in short he doesn't chemically react.

Here, in this foreign forest
So unknown to me
My eyes fell on a graceful lady,
The most beautiful of them all.
And here, in this strange land
I saw her hypnotyzing dance
And heard her wonderful voice,
The voice of this lady
The most beautiful of them all
I had no courage to call
Or heart to speak
So strong is her spell,
Yet I do not wish to break free.
But there she disappears
Behind tress and leaves
How hollow my heart is!
How my soul cannot take this!
One day there she comes again
Swinging and singing
Everything comes to life
As she is splendidly spinning
I was caught once more in the charms
Of her steps and voice
"Tinúviel!" I cried
And even the time was stunned
As she turned around.
Never have I felt
This fire in my heart
And I shiver
As he puts his arms around me.
For only one single moment
My heart was fullfilled
As I held her
Close to me

From the beginning of time - even before the coming of the elves - Arda, a world of great beauty, was plagued by evil. Its beauty was its curse, for even as the Valar, the great nature spirits of Valinor, fashioned the many wondrous resources of that world, the evil, powerful and covetous Vala, Melkor did seek to destroy all that he could not own or control. The nefarious designs of the Dark Enemy relentlessly plagued the whole of Arda and threatened its future, for he was more powerful than all the race of the Ainur.
The Valar, being witnesses to the vision of Ilúvatar, the Creator, perceived the ultimate destruction the dreadful mechanisms of Melkor would visit upon the world, especially Middle Earth. He and his dark puppet, the Maiar Sauron, would systematically poison that idyllic country. Evil fortune did indeed hold Middle Earth in bondage for many ages

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE ENTWIVESIn a time long ago beyond the reckoning of the stars, an enchanted land of magical beings flourished. Its inhabitants lived in peace, for the most part, each race to its own needs. The wide variety of species and their closely held beliefs, made it difficult to integrate effectively. The land, and indeed the world on which it existed, was vast in size, and beings of the same ilk were far flung.WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE ENTWIVES1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
So it was for the creatures known as the Ents. Ents were ancient and enchanted trees with the ability to speak and move about. They seldom did either, for in their home, called Fangorn Forest, there was seldom a need for verbal communication and mobility. Their basic function was the care of very young or less evolved trees. It was natural to them, therefore, to be very solitary.
Though the only known survivors of these beings appeared to be gender male, their own memories told of a gender female race of Entwives. Unfortunately, having lived without them for time out of mind, these Ents had no m
