Eastern Nigeria 1652. The Kingdom of Nri (Heyday of the Nri hegemony)
This was where she belonged. Amongst the markets and people haggling how many cowrie shells were needed to purchase various amounts of meat. Walking past a shopkeeper, the bangles on her arms clinking together as she walked the streets Igbo smiled and waved to her citizens. The dust in the air did not disturb her proud expression as she saw tourists and learned men come. Her large headress, ballooned of air, and wrapped around her head many times did not sway in the harmattan breeze. Her robes caught the sand on the pavements but she did not notice for she was pleased with herself. The muslim countries had likened her capital and her kingdom to Mecca and the Oyibo countries (white-people countries) had likened her city to Rome. It may not have the gleaming towers or spires for that was not the way her people designed their buildings, why go for height when you can go for length. Her por

AN: This particular story uses What If Volume 1 Issue #6 as its inspiration, but I consider it to take place in a universe of my own creation, so I will play hard and lose with Marvel continuity (even alternate reality continuity) as it pleases me. I will not directly say what year it takes place in at any point in the story, but to help you get a general idea, you may assume that this story starts in (prepare for irony) 2004.
Chapter one, Changes: In which Reed Richards loses everything except what matters to him most.
After taking care of a base need (and a few sanitary ones afterwards) Reed Richards returned to the bedroom that he and his, for lack of a more scientific term, girlfriend Susan Storm shared. Though she'd been asleep when last he laid eyes on her, while Reed had been busy she had woken up, and gotten dressed. A wide and lazy smile dwelt upon her face as she sat cross legged on the bed they shared. We
Wolf's Bane - Act 1It was a quiet piece of blacktop in the middle of a densely wooded area somewhere just within the town limits of Samhein. The sun was trying to break free from the heavy foliage of the area, but having a tough time doing so early this morning. As the sun was rising, small specks of light beamed their way down towards the pavement below, creating a strange, unnatural world as light and darkness blended together in a world of natural and unnatural. Several broken branches laid over the yellow line dividing the road in two, their leaves broken off and smashed flat down as they found a place to rest. A couple sounds of the forest could be heard off in the distance if one would listen carefully: the chirps of a few crickets, the final hoots of an owl before calling it a day, the small traces of a babbling brook that runs its way through the forest. But soon enough, another more mechanical sound began to break up the peaceful serenity of the scene. It was the sound coming from a large red, wWolf's Bane - Act 18 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

"Bolin, what's wrong with you today!?" I yell out as he gets knocked into zone 3. He's off today, too distracted again. I get knocked into zone 2 while my mind wanders and I'm soon joined by Korra. She shoots me a questioning look, but I just shake it off. While the other team continues to try to knock us back, I notice they're trying to aim past me more than at me. I also notice that Bolin hasn't been throwing anything either.
"Bo?" I call out to him. We lock eyes and I can see all the self-control he tried to hold onto, fade away. Eyes full of fear turn into eyes full of malice and he launches a disk at me, one I barely dodge. I stare incredulously at him as he continues to attack me with a barrage of clay disks.
"What's this? It seems Bolin is going against his own team! What is the Fire Ferret doing and how will his teammates stop him?" the announcer booms in his microphone.
"Bolin!" Korra calls out, still trying to hold her own against the opposing team. When he hears her voice, h
Essence of the HydeEssence of the Hyde7 months ago in Settings More Like This
Unbound by morals and unrestrained by ethics, the Hyde is an embodiment of vices and desires of an individual incarnated into raw and absolute form. Their nature is both abhorrent to society bound by their customs and rules, but ultimately enticing to individuals who inwardly chafe at such societal constraints. Yet it is a nature that resides in any individual which only takes a particular alchemical formula to unleash.
Though there are many circumstances by which an individual can come upon the condition, the root of it lies in alchemy. Not all are aware of this matter some having stumble upon the formula purely unintentionally without any prior knowledge of alchemy. But it is a dreadful nature of the formula on how easy it is to replicate by the uninitiated.

The Caged Bird
It would have been better,
If I only was a bird that could fly,
Up in the blue,
Night starry endless sky.
Reach up for the moon,
Let the moonbeam pass me by,
Stare at the twinkling stars,
Let myself go so high.
Have no boundaries,
Pretending I was free,
No limits, just freedom,
Made to be.
But here I lie,
Caged up in a room,
Sitting and starring at the sky,
Wishing I could escape and bloom.
But thus is all a dream,
I have slept and dreamt for many years,
Scrapping for freedom in my dreams,
In which I built around me a universe.
It all fades away,
As the morning star rise,
Making all my dreams flee,
As rays wake me up, I go back to my cries
As soon as I realize
There is no escape, no way out,
I'm bound to live in misery
My caged life, no doubt.
Its eternity, never ending,
I think I'll put a stop to all that,
Find a cliff . Let myself fly down,
As my life speeds by, I fly for the last time to my death…

Opening scene shifts to a bowling alley, the place was packed and everyone was having fun. The sound of bowling pins being knocked over, music, and chatter filled the air. There was also an arcade area, dance floor, and a food court. Last a birthday took place as a lot of people gathered around a table as they sing the birthday song.
"Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Shadow! Happy Birthday to you! And many more!!"
At the end of the table was a vanilla flavored cake with frosting on it, a wolf head picture in the center, and a number eighteen like candle. The one sitting next to the cake is a.... werewolf, an arctic werewolf instead of a human.

I just want to
shout and SCREAM
break these windows
refreact this beam.
I want to pull down
these four walls,
rip them off , block by block,
no more cages , no more halls.
I want to pull up
a pair of black feather wings
and sadly glide into thin air
let me re-born and forget the past things.
So much tears
build in my eyes
as I sadly ask myself , ''What am I?''
and than.... nothing I realize.
I want to destroy
throw and cick
at everything in front of me
.... well no good kicking against the prick.
No way out
of this madhouse
under they happy faces
lie only drunken frowns
They (friends) should entitle me,
put me as their queen,
the saddest person
on has ever seen
Sitting their for the name
I put on my crown,
and try not to frown
I hate being in the shadow
not being even seen
not cared , not wanted
just a black shadow on the scene
I hate ALL those
so cruel and insane
they are my dream
Cartoon FusionHeres an interesting idea: what if your favorite cartoon characters were to fuse with each other to become one character? Heres a list of fusions that I created with the help and submissions of many others. These fusions came about using either the Fusion Dance or Potara Earrings, both of which come from the anime Dragon Ball Z.Cartoon Fusion10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Firstly, for those of you who are unfamiliar with DBZs Fusion Dance, its a dance thats short yet complicated, where the two fusing people have to move exactly the same while saying the word Fusion-Ha! All fusions done with this dance feature the characters wearing an open black vest with either orange or yellow puffy trim around the shoulders and the collar of the vest; the vest itself is small, covering none of the stomach and very little of the chest (for the sake of female fusions, lets just say that the vest is closed, but is still showing the stomach area).

Zelkyires part 2Walking had become quite difficult for Alice. This morning, it was easy, despite waking up in a hospital bed. But back then she was just a skinny, young woman with short red hair, freckles and button nose. Now she had had grown a bit. Inflated in fact, into a giant. A massive, bloated, balloony blimp of a giant. At least 70 feet tall she was told, likely more. Everywhere she looked, her body was bulging outwards and beyond. There just never seem to be any end to her. It was a small miracle that she had clothes to wear, given her huge size. A red and white uniform that stretch to fit her new form. It came complete with knee high boots, a garrison cap and flying goggles. Alice wasn't sure where the outfit had come, it just sort appearing out of nowhere, but she was glad when it did. It wasn't her new bulk however that was making it hard to move. It was her weight, or lack of control over.

Once upon a time
There was a little girl.
Time washed over her
As she grew into a beautiful precious black pearl.
A fairytale it was
Enchanted the way she exsisted,
A tale it had been
and flushed her dream
down the drain.
It was brutal
To watch all her hopes
Be taken away from her
As to tears she mopes.
She was left
with a mere nothing
as that cruel someon came
and broke down her wing
Is all she dreams,
revenge for her it means.
But will she ever
Have what she wants?
Vengeance , pay back
the settling of scores?
The girl is me , yes and refered as a black pearl for one reason. As always I cur out from the others , but i still have my beauty . When the poem continoius to develop itself I imagine the 'black pearl' turning into a little fairy and her wing is broken.
