a smell like acid, microchemical sludge
irresponsible absence of vinyl gloves.
no locker no gym bag no
plenty of friends.
drowned man's hands,
straight from davy jones' locker;
corpse-white or corpse-blue
the slow rotation of hemoglobin,
it took years and years and years
to get where i am.
i had a destination, but i didn't have a roadmap.
that's no moon, that's
planets and weapons and satellite airplanes,
spinning and turning
ellipses around my head,
newtonian elegance and einsteinian thrill
watch as i label you, dub thee knight
careful slowdance of internal respiration and
speak softly and carry a big flashlight.
third-of-a-meter-long and dangerous,
great for camping and playpretend bludgeoning.
it is nearly as elegant as a firearm.

FTMSarah had just finished making herself a sandwich and was returning to her room when suddenly her dad, who had been watching TV, stopped her and said, "Sarah, mom called. She want you to call Grandma and thank her for the skirt she bought you."FTM3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Sarah sighed. She had received the long blue skirt her father was referring to in the mail earlier that day, and was hesitant to call her Grandmother. It's not that she didn't like the skirt, it was just that Sarah had a hard time imagining where she would possible WEAR it.
"But dad, it's already nine o'clock." Sarah said quickly, trying to dodge a bullet.
Her father said nothing for a moment, then replied with, "Mom wants you to." And that was the end of the discussion. Both Sarah and her father knew that if mom wanted something done, it had to get done. That is, if you wanted your head still attached to your body when she got home.
Sarah groaned and trudged upstairs to her room. She put down her sandwich on her bedside table and picked up her
The Day the Music DiedWhen I was ten years old, my mother did my hair, her long, slender fingers gently raking my scalp as she pulled it tightly back. The final snap of the silk ribbon was like a period at the end of a sentence, an awfully final sound for such a bright autumn morning. My eyes watered, the tiny ringlets drawn so tightly back they became straight; and I stood, straightening my dress. This one was my favorite, and it had been sitting in the back of my closet waiting for this day. It was a lavender flower print with long sleeves, the gentle folds of the skirt hemming off just above my knobby, skinned knees. I permitted my mother to one last harshly planted kiss on the cheek and rushed excitedly down the stairs, the morning sunlight dancing across the oak stairs as my sock-clad feet tiptoed into the kitchen. He stood with his back to me, and the aroma cloud of the freshly roasted coffee burst in my face. I stood in the doorway, silently waiting for him to notice my morning vigil.

-Down at the Liquor Store, LonLon's in a dark brown trench coat standing next to Ashe. Ashe has a smug look, reading the sign in the window of the store. LonLon's leans over, Ashe whispering in her ear-
Ashe: "You're going to go into the store, and buy a twelve pack of Coors. Oki?" o.o
Lonethan: *nods* "Yeah. But how do you know the cashier will let a thirteen year old walk off with a case of beer?"
Ashe: "Aww, it's okay. Okay? He's just a stupid old Tabby. And he's like; Seventeen. All teenagers scare the shit out of My Chemical Romance; so they must be pretty bad, right? Now go." *pushes her towards the door*
Lonethan: .__." *stands up straight and walks through the door, looking across at the cashier reading a magazine at his desk*

Kouta MelanieName: Kouta MelanieKouta Melanie3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Meaning of name: Kou (Peaceful) describes his peaceful almost childlike nature, Ta (thick,big) this has a bit of a double meaning for Kouta, it's a bit ironic seeing as how he is a short young man but could also reference the size of the books he reads.
Melanie: Could reference the dark side of his personality
Age: 16 (currently)
Nationality: Japanese British
Powers/Abilities: Kouta is a paper user, similar to Yomiko Readman. Despite his young age he is able to create a wide array items using paper;it's often said that Kouta is a prodigy in paper manipulation. However, he is still developing a few of his techniques.

His main creations tend to be paper air planes, katanas and sometimes paper foxes.
Although he is normally a bit clumsy when he gains enough confidence he can be quite agile (or if he reads a good action manga); he also knows s

Motley Twins' Origin-Backstory (Batman OCs)Motley Twins' Origin-Backstory (Batman OCs)4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Patricia & Richard O' Doherty are fraternal twins of Irish descent. Raised in an orphanage in Gotham City due to their parents dying when they were still very young, Patricia & Richard idolized Batman, Robin and Batgirl, even aspiring to be Robin and Batgirl someday.
On Halloween when they were 12 years old, they both had superhero inspired outfits made by one of the women at the orphanage for them to go trick or treating in. After getting all the candy they could handle, the twins witnessed a man being brutally beaten in an alleyway and decided to try and help him only to almost get beaten down themselves. Batman arrived on the scene and drove the thugs off, but yelled at the kids for their recklessness and running into the situation when they could've easily died.
Richard & Patricia didn't care as they just wanted to help, but after this incident their hopes and dreams were dashed and thus the twins ceased idolizing the "Batman Family". Several months later the twins witnessed The Jo

For most people, the problems that people will have with a character is the lack of balance they might have.
Mary-Sues are the most popular characters that exemplify this.
Mary Sues are characters that have more good traits than flaws and therefore look perfect for the audience. That can include all sorta of aspects in the character 'life'.
1) You have over-powered Mary-sues who can defeat any and every opponent and therefore are respected and awed by everyone.
2) Realtionship-Sues who are so much of the woman that every man who meets her is obviously struck with love the minute they see her, even when the character has no real qualities that WOULD normally attract men. And these are also the ones who are able to take their pick of the guy and somehow always end up getting with the most sought-after man in the series.
3) You have the feminist-sues/tom-boy sues who are the perfect women in their being less "girly" on

The World I See...We all have visions of the future, though many are just our projections of today, or a pitiful attempt at foresight. So if you indulge me, here's how I see the world in, lets say by mid-century.The World I See...4 years ago in Settings More Like This
It is the early 2050s, and humanity has entered into arguably the most pivotal moment in its history since the first ape stood upright. The earth is divided into two factions, the Reactionaries, and the Enlightened; two sides currently living in a very uneasy peace. The Reactionaries have fenced themselves into a few select communities, mostly in sights of religious and cultural importance, the largest being Vatican City, Jerusalem, Mecca, Salt Lake City, etc. The Enlightened control most of the planet, but dwell primarily in the great Megalopolises of the world.
The Enlightened administer themselves in an almost anarchic system known as Cloud Democracy, with political divisions meaning very little beyond what remains of the regional historical identity of Earth's ancient civilizations. The Enl

I remember the day it all began clearly. It was a monday afternoon on the first day of a new school term. I had a free period so I did what I always did; sat in the corner of the common room with my two friends, eyeing up all of the hot girls that would walk by. All of us knew it was wrong, but we also said it was kind of a compliment to them because it showed we thought they were pretty.
However, on this day my friends weren't there, both still on family holidays from the preceding week off school. I was gonna have to go it alone, for today at least.
I tried to be subtle seeing as I wasn't surrounded by my friends. So I peeked over one of my magazines hoping that they wouldn't notice me staring at them and their beautiful breasts. I remained unnoticed as many girls passed by, it was all going well.
Then someone walked in that i'll never forget. She must have been new here because I'd never seen her before. She was incredible. Swaying, long, brown hair; perfect sized ass; slim, hourgla
