That person that we sometimes see
The one who always hides their pain
The one who took two seats on the plane
The one that went and lost their mind
The one that always falls behind
The one who threw up during class
The one that always gets picked last
The one who went and tripped and fell
The one who never seems to be well
The one everybody reprimands
The one nobody understands
We've all had our moments
Don't deny what is true
We all know embarrassment
is nothing new
And you are wondering
What's expected from you....
Give compassion, my friend...
....It's all you can do.

Andy knew he was a relic. He used to violently object when it was suggested that he was past his prime, but after a while the reality was too apparent to ignore.
It had been years, maybe decades since he'd been able to find factory fresh parts. Most of his equipment now was made up from bits scavenged and scrounged, then adapted as best he could.
Sometimes there would be an accident in the construction projects, and if he was lucky, and quick, he could tear off whole limbs or liberate power cells before the maintenance crews arrived to chase him away.
Most of these parts were too new, but some could be modified to fit, the rest traded away.
Andy found himself wandering through a section of the city that he remembered as it had been, vibrant and alive, but as he trudged down the streets and through the alleys, he found the roads in disrepair and littered with rubble and refuse. The once tall and gleaming buildings that reached skyward were now bent and broken, some leaning across the st

My Naga Daughter part 6I ran out into the woods as we began our game or Ruby’s final exam so to speak. As waited, I spent ten minutes finding a hiding spot until I found a good one. I had a feeling she was going to get me eventually; she has seen literally ALL of my tricks and I was no ninja by any means. So I decided to use the “run-hide-run” tactic that has proven to be the most effective. What the “run-hide-run” tactic was is exactly what it sounds like: I would run quietly to find a hiding spot, hide until Ruby passes me and then run again to repeat the process. Usually it worked until recently when I have gotten myself careless, and it seems that she has acquired something similar to Spider Man’s “spider sense”. I guess it’s part of her genetics, check that, I KNOW it’s part of her genetics, maybe that was how Emily, her so-called “mother”, found me so easily when we first met. I still get shivers thinking about her, and the nightmaMy Naga Daughter part 62 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Ciel the Dridder BioName: CielCiel the Dridder Bio6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Race: Bolas Dridder
Height: 94 feet
Hair: Dark green with some brown strands mixed in.
Eye Color: Golden Yellow
Skin: Light green
Abdomen: Light wooden brown with some patches of green
Ciel is of a lighter build of body but thats not to say she appears weak, she just seems a bit small as a consequence of being a Bolas Dridder more suited for less direct confrontations. The most striking feature of Ciel would be her eyes, standing out in contrast to the rest of her green and earthy colors and can be hypnotic (or scary for those more prey sized) seeing her bright eyes staring from the trees. She keeps her dark green her short mainly because she sees it as a hindrance and annoying to take care of when its too long. The patches of green on her abdomen are somewhat leaf shaped but not a rigid leaf literally just on her, but more of a basic smoothed out shape instead.
Ciel can always be found carrying a small leather sack at her sides th

A taurian octopus creature with a human-like upper torso was still- the chlaena's eyes with ovaloid pupils were inscrutable and she did not move, her tentacles splayed out around her, anchoring her to the stone seabed. Her bulbous octopus half slowly bobbed up and down behind, while she rested back on it comfortably. Though it was difficult to tell for anyone inexperienced with her species' behavior, she was sleeping- not only this, but currently in the act of dreaming, a normally extremely strange occurrence and even a sign of insanity for many others of her kind.
Indeed, she was one of the few of her kind, either blessed or cursed, but in her opinion gifted by the Queen of Darkness with the ability to see things others could not. Maybe the future or the past, just for an instant. So

Making us each as unique
As each and every star.
