"Good evening Andrew."
Jumping through a window at least two stories high or higher was probably not the smartest way to escape Hugo Strange's facility.
"I am Professor Hugo Strange, the warden of Arkham City."
But with TYGER guards close behind him, it was the only thing Andy could think of at the time.
"I'd like to talk to you about your daughter..."
Landing was the hardest part. As he hit the ground, he tried to roll in order to lessen the impact of hitting the ground. Despite his best effort, he had dislocated his shoulder. Blood was dripping into his eyes from the cuts along his face. He knew jumping through the glass would cut him to pieces, but he was a desperate man. More than that, he was determined.
" You see, I've been considering killing her."
Looking around, he realized he had landed on a roof. Pushing himself off the ground with his good arm, he climbed down into an alley below. It was a relief to get out of the wind and snow, though he wa

The moment I was put to Death
I watched my world unfold;
And took it in one failing breath
Amid the sinking cold.
I saw the waters part for me,
The prison walls come down;
And held my head up gallantly
Prepared myself to drown.
The war drum beat in unison
With my instable heart,
While I marveled at the passion of
Its long-forgotten art.
Then quick, the noose, with bitter force
Was tightened round my neck,
til blood began to change its course
and surge along the wreck.
I felt the world dissipate
In a white, magnesium flash,
And blind, began to levitate
Into the bidding Past.
And felt the warmth of gentle seas
Lull still the vessel tossed.
Now silent in the reverie
Of new beginnings lost
Then soaring high above, I left
My shell that winter morn.
The moment I was put to Death
Was the moment I was born.
A Sonnet against Sonnets
I do not care for sonnets very much;
Poetic form that makes me

It was a cold day in Konoha. A blanket of white clouds spread across the whole sky, lightly sprinkling snow crystals onto the earth below, where the snow had accumulated to a depth of about half a meter. There were children frolicking in it playfully, building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels; doing just about anything that one can do with snow. One young man made his way to a hill, where he found snow in his favorite cloud-watching spot. He stared at the ground for a few moments before muttering something.
Tsk Troublesome the young man thought out loud. Well, I guess its not that good of a day for cloud gazing anyway Shikamaru turned his eyes up to the monotonous cloud blanket above him before walking off to his other spot. After a few minutes, he arrived at a tree atop another hill, where he promptly flung himself up onto a large branch. Sitting down and laying his back against the rough bark of the tree, Shikamaru pr

Why does Tsunade always give me so much work before my day off? Shikamaru groaned as he walked up the steps to a rooftop with a covered bench. He sat down, laid his head back and began to watch the clouds go by, as he always did. It was something that he always enjoyed doing, from when he was a young student in the academy to now. Although his schedule had become crammed full of meetings, appointments, and other engagements, he still found the time for him to watch the clouds. It was a relaxing pastime; he exerted no effort in doing so, and his mind was calm.
I thought I would find you here, he heard a female voice call out to him. Propping himself up, he gazed into the eyes of Temari, the fan-toting kunoichi from Suna. The two had been dating for some time now, and Temari had taken what could be called a permanent residence in Konoha; still acting as liaison between the two great nations, but spending her free time with her boyfriend and other acquai

Because I have nothing better to do with my time.
Chuck Norris is considered an Ardat-Yakshi by the Asari, because no one who has ever mated with Chuck has lived.
The only exception to that is when he had a baby with an Asari. Instead of it being another Asari, she gave birth to another Chuck Norris, who roundhouse kicked his way out of her womb. That's right, Chuck is his own father.
The real Genophage is not altered hormonal levels. It's a virus that makes it so that whenever the Krogans try to mate, they think of Chuck Norris, and the fear that is summoned by this image kills the mood.
The reason why the Reapers wait fifty thousand years between cullings is to see if Chuck Norris is dead of old age. Unfortunately, Chuck can never die.
The reason why the Reapers leave the galaxy is not by their choice. Chuck roundhouse kicks each and every Reaper into Dark Space.
Mass Relays are the Reaper's attempt to simulate what would happen to a ship if it was kick

Eric was having girl troubles… again.
As a Masters student attempting at an English degree, he wrote amateurish novels which were rather mediocre, at best. At worst, he was in desperate need of help. He touched his scruffy beard and askew hair, looking at his sleepless eyes in the mirror.
“Have you ever thought,” Eric remembered saying to his girlfriend earlier that week. “That you were meant for greater things?” His girlfriend had paused and stared at him strangely. He noticed that her eyes seemed to twitch, like they always did when he said somethin

Finally he went into Anakin's chambers. Holograms were sitting on shelves, pictures of Anakin and Obi-Wan, Anakin and Mace, Anakin and Yoda, even one of his rival, Ferus Olin. There were even a few of a young, teenage Togruta. Her eyes were always laughing, her lips always turned up in a sweet, timid smile.

One night, I was playing Batman Arkham City's Catwoman missions when there was a knock on the door. I paused the game and went over to the door. I opened the door and saw a small package on the ground. I picked it up and took it upstairs.
I opened the package, it was a cat necklace. I put it around my neck, "Wow, it fits me perfectly!" I said. Suddenly, it began to glow.
I felt very strange as if I was changing. Suddenly, my hips burst outward as pockets of fat made them rounder. I grabbed my ass as fat pushed it into a sexy heart shape. I could feel the fat draining from my calves as they turned slender and soft, while my thighs thickened out until my trousers were filled up. My feet soon slipped out of their shoes and socks as they cracked down seven sizes. I felt my feet arched slightly, toes shrinking down as the nails became pedicured, leaving behind very dainty feet.
I tried to get used to my new legs and walked a little, unconsciously swaying my hips as I went.

He was already on the run, and it was by a stroke of luck that he managed to spot the Iceberg Lounge ahead, and luck again that he recalled there were still two smoke capsules in his coat. Three gunshots rang out behind him, and thankfully all fell short of their mark. Either they had terrible aim or he was simply that good at dodging, though he was willing to bet it was the former. His hand flew into his coat, snatching one of the capsules between two fingers. He drew his hand out, raising his arm just above his head, and flicked the capsule behind him. Within seconds it burst, the smoke hissing as it was released, and he put on a fresh b

Shino's Point of View:
As training came to a close, my teammates decided that training was over for the day. I was aware of this and took it as a sign to go for a stroll to the flower shop. What I did not know was that Ino was waiting for me outside the shop. It seemed as if it was all predetermined, but then I was not expecting it.
"Hey, Shino", Ino said. "Would you like to go somewhere?"
"Sure, I'll go with you", I answered. "Is there anywhere in particular that you wish to take me?"
"You got it. Make sure you keep up though".
Next thing I knew Ino ran off unexpectedly, which, to my surprise, I was running alongside her. It took less than five minutes to reach our destination. That is unless there was something else...
"What are you doing?" I asked, curious to know what exactly is going on at this moment.
"You'll find out soon enough", she replied as she was removing the fish net pads and her ninja tool pouch. "You might want to do the same though".

“Another day begins... much to my regret.”, I thought while I sighed and stood up.
I opened my wardrobe, took a Metallica T-shirt, a pair of black jeans and black boots and closed the door. Later, I opened a box I had put on my desk the night before and took my leather gloves, a snake-shaped pendant and my white skull earrings. I went to the bathroom, put some make-up, brushed my hair and looked at my reflection on the mirror. My long, curled, dark brown hair reached my shoulders; my skin was as pale as usual, with those rings under my eyes that never disappeared, but fortunately the make-up hid... I looked down and walk away, downstairs. I went into the kitchen, ate my breakfast, returned to my bedroom and looked for my bag.
