It's a good thing we left early because by the time we arrived, the place was filled with screaming Beatle maniacs trying to meet their future 'husbands'. Luckily, some of the policemen managed to keep them back. We snuck in through the back of the place, dragging in all the equipment behind us. Trust me, not fun, especially when you practically have a death by cymbal.
Paul and John carried cases which held their guitars. The two walked through the door first, followed by Ringo. He was carrying the snare drum and ride cymbal. I was right behind him helping out by lifting an amp. George was last, with another one of Ringo's cymbals.
Being in between the two of them kind of frightened me. George leaned forward to taunt me. "Don't drop the amp, Laur." He gave a slight grin, baring his tiny fangs. Neither of the boys could see this, but my cheeks got a little red.
I turned to him walking through the doorway. Then I commented, "I won't! Ow!" I hit the cymbal he was hauling with my head. Tot

Paul looked over to see if I was ready, but I was still thinking about what the boys had said just moments earlier. Then he waved and I finally noticed it was time to start. I nodded back as I counted the band off. "188.8.131.52.1.2.3!" I did a double hit on the snare and floor tom to begin the song. The crowd was surprised how I nailed it perfectly.
From the side of the stage, Brian looked furious about how I disobeyed his order. Steam was practically spewing out of his ears. We were definitely in for a long lecture later. Yet we didn't really care, we were just enjoying ourselves too much.
John and Paul sang in perfect unison as usual while George was moving around playing his guitar. Ringo was watching everyone else, in deep thought. He had a tiny smile on his face, so I assumed everything was fine. I noticed that quite a few girls in the couple front rows got super duper pissed at me when George looked back in my direction and we exchanged silent laughs. Just wait until they find out th

The next morning, I woke up early in my hotel room, fully rested and refreshed. I did a quick stretch; then got out of my bed. Getting dressed, I grabbed some casual wear from my suitcase. I was wearing a maroon colored, short sleeved shirt. On the shirt was this logo of a designer company. I chose to match it with a pair of black corduroy pants. Very casual. After that, I briefly straightened my hair in the bathroom. I've got to look at least somewhat decent when going down to the lobby to get breakfast.
When I reached the lobby, I bought a newspaper that came out today. Guess what the top story was? "New talent along with the Fab Four" aka me! It was great! I couldn't wait to show Ringo. Basically, it was about how I'm traveling with the Beatles and why. Now back to what was going on. I headed to the café that was within the hotel. There I snatched some chow for breakfast, taking the bag back up to my room.
On the way back to the room, I somehow ran into George in the hallway. "

It was starting to get dark, and we all left the ice cream shop, trying to avoid any more photo shoots with the fans. It took FOREVER just waiting for Ringo and some of the other boys to finish up. I didn't even start talking to some of them until we left that it was so bad. Not to mention some girls were attempting to follow us out the door, or at least keep me from leaving. One of them managed to scrape my left arm. Talk about jealous.
We were waiting for John to get a cab over, as we all were talking. "Lauren, is your arm alright? I noticed that some of the girls got rough with you," Paul said concerned of me.
"Yeah, I'm fine," I replied looking at my arm. It was bleeding a bit and a little swollen. Then, I covered it with my hand so no one would worry.
"Really? Then why are you covering it with your hand?" John asked being nosy. He looked back to the streets to get a cab to take us back to the hotel.
"I always do this," I replied.
"Not when you have shopping bags with you," Ringo s

We've been on the plane for over two hours, and half the people here are asleep, including Ringo. Haha. I knew that because he was resting on my shoulder. It was so cute. Back to the topic here, everyone was pretty content. Paul and George were at the round table playing cards. John and Brian were talking about upcoming plans once we arrive in the U.S. As you already know, Ringo was asleep on my shoulder, while I was drawing on my sketch pad.
Eventually, one of the reporters got up to go to the bathroom. She had short reddish hair, and glasses. She was wearing a business uniform. As she walked down the aisle, she noticed me. "Having fun with Ringo there?" She giggled.
"Huh?" I blushed a bit, "Oh, no. He just fell asleep on my shoulder is all." For all I know, she could be making a front page article on how I seduced Ringo or something. That's just what I need, not.
"Oh alright," she laughed. Then she looked down, seeing what I was up to. "Whoa, that's some artwork! Mind if I get a pict

Like all good Mario Story lines... Peach had been kidnapped...again.
The brother's in arms had now reached the castle. "Come on Luigi the Princess is waiting for us!" Mario called back at the skeptical Luigi who hasn't been on such a journey with his older sibling in a wile and not looking forward to it in the least. Mario sighed. "You'll be fine, Weegee! You know you got me to help you!" He told him reassuringly also grabbing Luigi's arm to drag him in the direction of the ominous evil castle looming over the hill side. Mario easily guided Luigi through the castle exactly to where Peach is expertly from many, many times before. The Trouble-Target Princess's eyes widen when she saw them and would have cried out if she wasn't gagged and tied. Mario ran over to her and untied her.
Luigi stood outside the doorway until the sound of clawed feet echoed to his direction. Whirling around to gape at Bowser Lu

CHARACTER CREATING TIPS
Part 1: Appearance
A key factor in your character's design is the appearance, it affects how they're treated, and generally thought of.
The appearance should be well thought out, and should reflect your character, and not your personal tastes.
I hear many people say, "She/He looks like this because I saw a movie with this one character that was really cool", please, don't ever do this.
You can be inspired by a character you've seen, and take elements from that design and incorporate them into your own, but don't create a character just because you thought something was "cool".
And so now, here are is a list of things to consider when creating your character's appearance. Remember, these are not rules that you have to follow, just suggestions and tips to help you create a better original character
#1: Make your character's attractiveness level, match the character.

Rob eyed the big red button, resisting the temptation to push it. "Hey Pete, look what I found!"
The salvage operation was one of the most promising their crew has been on; the demons slaughtered everyone in the underground facility and retreated without taking any of the spoils. They did leave, however, corpses in blue and white labcoats with blood smeared all over.
"What!" Came the muffled reply from the far side of the corridor.
Many of the reinforced doors were already bashed in or broken in half. Naturally, the crew raided the blood depository first - no self-respecting vampires would let all that tasty blood get ruined. It's good we arrived in time, while there's still electricity. Not even the clan leaders knew why only facilities such as these had electricity and working technology - or if they did, they surely did not bother telling Rob.

Analyzing: Southland Tales
I VERY much hope someone was in on the joke here.
Apolitical movies are rare, but rarer still is this neutrality achieved by treating every single political facet with equal contempt.
But Southland Tales just doesn't work. Its too obscure to be entertaining, too morose to be a satire, too farcical to be legitimate social commentary, too confused to have a message, its too shackled to a time period to be timeless, too paranoid to be political, too silly to be science fiction, too contrived to be mysterious, too disjointed to even effectively be called a film except that it happens to be moving images on a screen.
But I'll strive for the same impartiality as this film showcases even if that requires a similar level of contempt for all its facets.

What? Who do wha?
Lusaun leaned against the nearest pillar, sighing. An inner turmoil ragged inside of her. Disappointment and fear mingled with distrust edged closer at her brain. Wile Worry and confusion made it difficult for her thoughts to transform into sense.
Something didn't feel right about Dimentio
Something didn't feel right about Shada
Something was wrong. Terribly wrong.
Her senses clashed with the mingling traces of Dimentio's Power and the fading aura of Shada's blood.
Wait. Dimentio's Power? When did he become so powerful that it fades Shada's own? That got Lusaun thinking. Quickly she scanned the room, pleased to find it vacant. Pulling away the rug that ran its length down the corridor, she wiped out her spell book from her pack. Spinning around still on the floor she grasped the three crystalline claws from where they lied on bloody marble, repeating the same step with a partly disintegrated pillar. She gasped. The pilla

1) Write a story about your favorite book/movie/play/TV show, starring your favorite characters in situations of your devising. This is called fanficiton.
2) Gloat. It's almost as good—no, better!—than the real thing. The original author/creator/director should hire you to do their job for them!
3) Discover FanFiction.net. Feel unoriginal for a moment, then console yourself that no one's fanfiction could possibly be as good as yours.
4) Browse fics from your favorite book/movie/play/show. Read a few at random.
5) Die a little inside seeing the way fourteen-year-old writers molest the characters of your beloved fandom and the English language in general (even if you are fourteen yourself).
6) Be glad your fics aren't that terrible. Make all haste in posting your own, taking care to check the grammar and spelling along the way.
7) Submit your fic. Feel benevolent for nobly sharing your genius with these talentless wretches.

The Princess and the Plumber"Mario, breakfast is ready!" Luigi called out to his older brother as he put two plates of eggs, pancakes, and sausages on the table. Mario walked downstairs in a rather slow pace, still half-asleep. He didn't seem very happy and he's had something, or rather someone, on his mind as of late. This worried Luigi because Mario normally woke up in a cheerful mood when it came to breakfast. What was bothering him this morning? As Luigi was finishing the rest of his eggs, he noticed that Mario barely even took a bite of his food.The Princess and the Plumber5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
