Phoebe is in Central Perk with Ross.
Ross is writing a poem to Rachel,
unlikely as this may seem. Phoebe
listens to him recite it, then Chandler
walks in on the last few lines: "And Joey
is a noey like Hannukah with Monica,
so you see, you're left with me." "Monica
and Hannukah?" says Chandler. "Gee, Ross,
I thought you quit poetry." (Titles) Joey,
elsewhere, is cooking with Rachel.
They're baking a birthday cake for Chandler.
Joey's idea. They're counting on Phoebe
to keep him stalled. So, naturally, Phoebe
tells Chandler to write a poem for Monica.
"It's Phoebe's poetry workshop!" Chandler
relents, but writes four lines for Ross:
"Oh Ross/So cross/Becoss/Of Rachel."
Monica arrives in the flat to find Joey
and Rachel cooking. She screams. Joey
belts her - she falls unconscious. Phoebe
senses violence, contacts Rachel
psychically. "Something just happened to Monica!"
Chandler's ode has riled Ross.
He demands satisfaction from Chandler,
produces two pistols, whereupon Chandler

Paneling tips for mangaPaneling tips for manga10 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Paneling is a part of Graphic design. O_- It's an art in itself, think of how you would do a collage and put together a puzzle, that's how paneling works.
You must understand the basic 2D design element:
movement, center of interest, value contrast, volume, size, perspective.... so on and on....
As for paneling.... there is no set way to do it, whether drawing the picture first, or draw the panel's first, or draw the panels and the pictures back and forth.... it's all upto the artist, as long as the result is satisfying to the artist. Just experiement and find the best way that suits you.
1. Panels must support your content: That's the most important thing.... if one line is going over an important character's head shot, omit that line and let the character stand out~ If one frame is more important than the other, you wish to make it a focus on the page, make that frame larger than the others, sometimes it can even overlap other panels alittle. However, being overly complicated

To My BrotherMy mother tended her first yield tender,To My Brother4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
with slender fingers interlocked in a cradle
placed over her ripe stomach,
the calluses raised from farm labor
serving as little pillows for her son.
The first time she felt the quake underneath her flesh
the little feet,
the kicking feet that would someday hold up a man
she whispered his name,
The son rising in the east to reflect her soul.
But dawn broke too early,
stretching its scarlet, wet arms over her underwear,
spitting defiance in a rush of water soaking her feet.
On the way to the hospital,
she clutched her splitting stomach,
screaming and pleading to the impatient babe,
Too soon, too soon!
But he was too much Icarus;
too eager to reach the light.
Finally, when the doctors extracted what was inside her,
she heard no sound of a baby boy crying,
only a beeping monitor tracking the beat of an incessant heart,
Let me see him.
With cold hands,

Middle City Inquiry Torea stood in the middle of the street, the brisk autumn wind whipping her hair around her face, as tiny snowflakes spun dizzily down from the slate gray sky above.

She couldnt help but feel a twinge of sadness watching the snow melt as it hit the hard packed dirt that made up the streets of Cærlin Vales middle city.Middle City Inquiry8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
She hunched her shoulders against the wind, and made her way through the winding labyrinth of middle citys alleyways. Her goal was the Inn of Drowned Sorrows, a seedy tavern and brothel located near the harbor district. People shuffled by, paying little mind to the stranger in their midst. Middle City was known to many as the slums of Cærlin Vale. What few buildings that didn't serve the citys thriving seaport were crude shacks, growing along the citys walls
The LHPIt began as a small project under NIST. An oddity, it was called, something that should never have received a single grant but somehow managed to survive. Leave it to the bureaucracy to spend tax-dollars researching the impossible. Maybe it was the media over-hyping the biotech sector, maybe it was the availability of art majors willing to call themselves scientists, maybe it was just a pandemic of stupidity, but the ball got rolling. They got a budget, a staff, a few offices, their own parking spots, even a title. "The National Institute of Standards of Humanity," they started calling themselves. They hired me in mid-July.The LHP8 years ago in Humor More Like This

Since when did it become so large?
The only thing I still recall
Is this inability of mine to remember.
No matter how many times, again and again
The same face appears in my memories
But I still can't seem to remember
Anything about you.
The rings on the globe
Circling and chasing the sun
Us who don't need any tracks to pursue
Simply follow the night at our own will.
No matter how many thousands of times I try
The same face appears in my memories
The light raindrops on my eyelids
Leaving soft, low sounds to die away
Isn't this just an ignorant life, not knowing anything?
Won't this hurt you?
If you know how much I roll around, unable to sleep
Will you just laugh at me?
If it is just simply feelings that we're counting
Even forgetting all the warmth you had given me
Goodbye, I guess we will never meet again
This unstoppable strange sensation, spurring from my mind
I cannot bring myself to laugh
And there's nothing I can do
Just like a donut

"Now, Ellena, what did your grandmother tell you about playing in the swamp?" The voice that asked the question was soft and far from scolding. Every word that the young woman spoke seemed to be wrapped in love and tied with a smile. For some, such a caring tone would be reserved for only those dearest to them, but for Jessica it just came naturally. For her, every being - human or animal, living or dead - was precious.
That didn't make the child who sat before her any less nervous, the petite girl biting her lip and hanging her head forward so that her chestnut bangs partially hid her face. Far shorter than Jessica's own locks, they were also quite a bit darker and did an admirable job of casting the girl's face into sullen shadow.

To hide your heart,
Mangled as it is with scars.
Your smile is filled with joy,
But you're an actor,
You haven't truly smiled since you were a boy.
Your life is like a sequence of horrible dreams,
They say you'll go far,
But your mind is ripping at the seams.
Then suddenly she appears,
An angel broken,
Older than her sixteen years.
She hides behind no mask,
Her pain flows freely,
And in her honesty you bask.
If her presence is soothing when she's hostile,
You wonder what it would be like,
To feel the presence of her smile.
And suddenly you have a mission,
You'll make her laugh just once,
Because if love is real; she's the definition.
And in front of only her you drop your cloak,
She sees your pain,
And somehow fixes what was broke.
But she's still lost in agony,
Refuses to trust,
In danger of losing her sanity.
At times it seems an impossible feat,
But slowly you wrap around her trampled heart,
And fight harder when she retreats.
You won't let her

Anticipation causes my palms to sweat, my heart to race. I walk, my back hunched and eyes low, for the first time. I am the Omega. A soft whimper brings their attention to my submissive form, and in an instant, the Alpha is heading my way.
I crouch low and they stick their noses to the fence, eagerly smelling my outstretched hand. Soon they are all wagging tails and wriggling bodies. For the first time, I gaze into the Alpha's eyes.
I am lost.
The beast inside of me bursts through. It wants to run, to play, to roll in the dirt. But most of all, it wants to hunt.
My senses feel reawakened, like they've been lying dormant for weeks, maybe even months. The whistle of the wind through the trees seems louder, more prominent. The gurgle of the water suddenly floods my senses, drowning out all else.
Suddenly, I am sitting on the ground, staring at the two with an eager smile. My energy is limitless and human urges are dissapated. A howl escapes my lips; eager, lonely, and excited. A third app

It's unfair for them to tell us how we should look - especially when they don't look that way themselves!! Their pictures don't look anywhere NEAR than "beautiful" until after loads of photo editing! There's no way for people to look that way, not in a million years - no matter what they go through!
Plastic surgery, Botox, makeup, designer clothes, hair products, it's all a load of crap! It DOES NOT work that way! They change so much of it on the computer that it's barely the same person! It's a made-up photo of 'perfection' that is so unachievable that it lowers the self-esteem of girls and women of all ages, all the time!
For example, the people of Fiji: they always considered big, round, full-figured women very beautiful. In 1995, they were introduced to American television, and many of them realized that they were fat. Now heres the worst part: since th

Arun stared at the small piece of paper in his hands that he had found taped to the door of Skye's bedroom. Barely knowing anything about the English written language, Arun struggled with the words for a few minutes.
"Going... on a...." Arun paused at the next word, unsure of how to pronounce it, "Be.. back... later."
The burgundy-haired boy brought the note close to his face and focused directly on the word that he had skipped.
"Dah-tee?" Arun guessed. He repeated the word a few times out loud before he realized what it was.
"Date!!" He exclaimed.
He paused for a moment, and the happiness of accomplishing his goal of reading the note quickly faded into dread.
"Wait, that means you're gone for the day??" Arun gasped and the note slipped from his hands.
He dashed back into the television room where he and the other mermen slept. The small boy snatched up another piece of paper that was on the bed.
"So you're ALL leaving me then??" Arun complained as he read the note again that was writt
