(Reading the Bible is, perhaps, like our relationship with God)
We, at the beginning, meet Him and know Him, but how well? (Think of Genesis)
Over the course of Scripture, God is revealed to us in many ways: His power, wrath, justice, compassion, kindness, mercy, love, etc. The whole of Scripture, like meeting a person again and again, gradually reveals Him to us.
This culminates in Christ's own presence to us and in the New Testament we have his very words to us. The apostles afterwards spread this messagea wholly new but yet perfectly complete message, one begun in man since his creation and carried out through our nature and our history.
Thus, God so revealed himself to men of past generations until He revealed Himself in and through His only Son, Christ. For He "has not come to abolish the law or the prophets ... [but] to fulfill them" (Mt 5:17). As such, Scripture reveals to us the wisdom of these holy men, women, prophets, and priests. It reveals to

This is a follow up to my fan fiction The Winged Ones
First off I would like to say that in my mind the end of this story and the start of TP have several generations between them/hundreds of years between them. Just comparing the land of OoT and TP makes me say this because while the two lands are smiliar it sure did change a lot.
Where did the Tenshioni go? As we well know they are awfully finicky about where they live, and if the land of TP is supposed to be the land of OoT then there has to have been one hell of a seismic shift to change the land that much and it could have caused the Tenshioni to suffer in return. However I can say that the Snowpeak Ruins is the perfect TP equivalent for the above ground Wind Temple/Kaepora's home.
Where Yetto and Yeta would have come from is up to you
I also hate to even say this but one could say the Tenshioni's sense of magic eventually became super powerful and lead them to evolve past the need for human
One Year.A lot can change in a year's time. There can be a variety of things to happen to an individual. There can be war, poverty, heartbreak, loss and death. A person can completely deteriorate in the duration of a year. They can lose themselves in a lie they've conjured. They can drown themselves in a sorrow created by their own mistakes. They can find themselves utterly lost in this confusing world we all claim to know. A year can destroy someone. There is no doubt to that. But, what else can it do?One Year.5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
A year has passed, another year telling that this world and its inhabitants are creeping nearer and nearer to the end of their mortal lives, and we have changed fully. This year has been full of pain, and grief, but towards the end I have found life. I've been brought back by a new love that I have found.
For so long in this past year I have been losing myself in what seemed to be the downfall of my existence. My world revolved around the grief that consumed me. It wasn't until recently that I h

*Rurouni Kenshin and all characters therein belong to the noble Nobuhiro Watsuki.
**This is just a one shot. I just watched again the episode where Kenshin leaves for Kyoto and says his farewell to Kaoru (so hard to watch but so beautiful) and I needed to write something. I had to get this out of my system before continuing on with my Samurai Champloo fic or else it would sit in the way like a huge stone in the road. I hope I can move forward now, lol.
***This takes place just after Kenshin, Sano and Aoshi return from defeating Shishio Makoto. Kenshin was being practically carried by Sano and was near death when they finally reached the Aoiya. He's recuperating at this point.

Though his eyes were still shut, Kenshin's mind awoke to a warm pressure on his sword hand. Instinctively, he tried to move it but found the weight was eno

Chap 1: Love Song Requiem
Fuu was always a sick girl, from what Ventus could remember. No not sick as in mentally unstable, or having heinous thoughts. When he said sick, he meant physically impossible for her to be anywhere. He had never been to the hospital so much in his life until she came along. It was his first day of high school when he first met the mysterious and quiet girl.
He could remember it like it was yesterday; memories of a time when her smile was always faint, but visible in his eyes. It was raining that day too; when the weatherman had promised sunny skies. And now more than anything, he wished it were true for the rest of his life.
Ventus looked up at the menacing building in fear, high school, how much he despised this upcoming day. The blond had no right to complaint though; at least his foster siblings Aqua and Terra were attending the same

I kept my armor on when surfing through the dimension of space, hoping to catch Terra in time before he did something that resulted in Aqua's words being true. I just couldn't believe she would think he was being influenced by the darkness. Terra had every right to be a Keyblade Master just as much as she did. I personally sighed with shame towards her behavior. She was letting the whole title get to her head; I was sure of it. Keeping my balance on my keyblade, I managed to pull out the Wayfinder she had made for the three of us. It was sort of damaged and dented around the edges, smudges of dirt over the brilliant emerald material. I felt sort of guilty in treating it this way, but I knew it couldn't be avoided from all the battles I have endured lately.
I rarely wanted to pull it out, since I was scared I might lose it. I've been known to lose things after all...

Ventus kept gazing at himself in the mirror, feeling rather paranoid by his suit. It was white and pure, and feared stains would be easy to spot right away.
Roxas stood by the door frame, wearing his matching black ones, "Ventus, you look fine~."
The older twin gazed at his brother with a pout, "But..."
"If you keep it up, we'll be late to pick up the girls. Now come on." He ushered him to leave, letting out a low chuckle, "The limo driver is waiting."
They heard the honk from outside, causing them to run quickly down the stairs.
Eraqus was waiting in the living room, taking pictures, "You boys look handsome."

Walked with me
While I cried
I told you all my hurt
That was bundled up inside
You told me you would always be there
To wipe my tears away
Would always be there
To brighten my day
Would never leave me
It would all be okay
So I believed you
And placed you in my broken heart to stay
Held me in your arms
Found comfort and trust in me
I always listened
When you called out for help
You told me I could always find you
To mend my pain
Would always cure me
Would look out for me in the darkest storms and rain
Would always see me
Would never let me go
And I trusted you
And started to love you more than you will ever know
Told me you cared
That I was your best friend
And that you would miss holding me
When she came back
And when she did
You seemed to forget
That you told me
You would always be there
You no longer wiped my tears away
Only made them fall
No longer brightened my day
But caused the worst ones of all
You no longer let me find you
Only pushed me awa

Chapter Two: Midnight Confessionals
It had been only an hour since the dark orange sun had set behind the sandy dunes of the desert, and yet already the valley was plunged beneath an immeasurable curtain of velvet darkness. The day had been filled with festivities and laughter, racous noise from the small children and music carried through the air by the more talented adults. When darkness had fallen, the weary Gerudo had retired to their rooms in the Fortress, taking quickly to the folds of sleep.
One, however, had not.
A young woman was treading lightly on fast feet through the darkened, cool hallways, still clad in her formal tribal wear from earlier. She had a small frown on her face, and every so often her amber eyes would flicker this way and that, as though searching for someone.

it drew me like bait
marking my dreaded fate
He spoke a foreign language

it seemed like I was his wish
for he couldn't hide his grin
Just when I thought he's nice
he took out a knife
my heart sunk like ice
for I knew he'd end my life
I was taken by surprise
when blue blood poured out my vein
was this why I was locked in ice?
to, with cold, suppress my pain?

SSBB: Challenger MidnaIn the large Smasher's Manor, there are always groups of friends who mainly stick with one another and rarely go outside of those friend zones. For example, the villains of Super Smash Brothers usually stick together; the Mario brothers are rarely seen apart; the Swordsmen, Link, Marth, Ike, Toon Link, Pit, and Meta Knight are close friends; the three children, Toon Link, Ness, and Lucas, are friends and playmates; and those who came from the same worlds usually hung out together, with the exception of villains and heroes. Most of these groups, despite all the differences between the thirty-five characters, have one thing in common; any of them would back up their friends in fights outside of the Brawls, which happened periodically with the villains.SSBB: Challenger Midna5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
