Okami will forever be one of my most cherished videogames in my collection. There were so many aspects to be admired--a huge map that could be roamed around freely, giant intimidating bosses that actually required effort to defeat, and a unique and absolutely beautiful design.
As an artist, the entire watercolor/ink painting feel of the graphics is what really made the game win my heart. Even as you play, you are literally granted the power of a brush. You paint symbols directly on the screen that represent elements or attacks that may be used outside and inside the battlefield.
Of course, you're given a variety of weapons as well. Each one you find or purchase is a work of art in itself. They're all different in their own way and look magnificent. You have your choice of Rosaries (beads), Glaives (swords), and Reflectors (mirrors). Other than the looks, the performance of each weapon is slightly different but they're all quite balanced. Reflectors are swung around in a circular motion

Okay, so Bakura told me he’s tired of just sitting around watching me play video games all day. I can’t imagine why… At any rate, he appears to be serious about this (he even made his little stubborn-pouty face) so, in the interest of preserving our evil alliance, I agreed to separate myself from my console for a couple of days.
I never said anything about my PC...
Ha ha ha, I am so wonderfully evil! The fluffy fool cannot possibly begin to imagine that I am really still playing video games behind his back! Well, technically it’s more like an online RPG, but my plan is still SUPREMELY EVIL. That’ll teach him who really wears the leather pants around here.
Hmm, let’s see… This T.O.M.E. game is supposed to be some kind of virtual-reality-type-thing… I don’t really know how it works, but it reeks so badly of money and arrogance that I’m sure Kaiba’s hologram technology is involved. Although it really doesn’t have a

By hiding we are making sure that none could ever hurt us, find us, scare us to the point of retreat. Now when I say retreat I don't mean physically beating us back, or even making us pull back into ourselves. When I speak of retreat in this aspect I refer to actually making us so scared that we can't move back. We become so frightened of any kind of minor change any kind of stress. This will break us.
You know us.
You know what we are, but you don't know that you do.
We are the ones that you can rely on to always be there, the ones you can fall back on, the ones that fight back for you when you can't anymore. They stand up for you when you are too shocked or upset or even angry to act. We don't ever appear broken, we don't appear scared, we don't appear like there could ever be anything wrong.
You might ask us what's wrong when we let our masks slip, but we insist we're fine. Most of the time you believe us, those times you don't, those are the times we have truly fallen. We

After he first looked in the mirror since acquiring his own body, Bakura methodically shattered every reflective surface he could get his hands on. To see Ryou's body double instead of the man he had once been was too much. This skinny, frail thing couldn't be himit was a mockery, the pharaoh's newest knife to stab and twist in this smooth, new, pale skin.
Malik came home to him slumped on his knees in front of the TV, watching the news, blood oozing from his cut-up hands. As he grabbed the first-aid kit, he said simply, "Welcome to my world."
He never considered himself crippled not by his life underground, or by the scars on his back. If anything, he was stronger for what had been done to him, and he would be damned if he couldn't prove it. There was a poo

Shocked, I staggered backwards till I was almost pressed up against the tomb of Colossus. Helen had been coming up closer to me, till she had stopped and started calling me her prince and how she was overjoyed that we could finally be together. She reached her hand out to me, as if she expected me to take it. Then all of the sudden she was Helen again, the same Helen who had always lived next door to me. She looked up at me.
"Nassor? Did you bring me here?" she asked me, her eyes brimming with sadness and innocence.
"No" I replied. "You walked up to me while I was here."
"That's funny" she said, a confused look on her face. "I don't remember coming here."
"You had better go home before your parents start to worry about you." I told her, my mind filled with questions and thoughts about what had happened only a few minutes earlier. I needed her to leave so I could sort them out.
"I suppose you're right." She said calmly, before walking

"Carl, there's a dead human in our house!"
My best friend-and roommate-Carl, was in the kitchen, doing the dishes, which was odd, because Carl never did the chores.
He shuffled over and poked the dead body with his foot. "Oh...hey...how did he get here?" Blood was pooling on the floor, from multiple stab wounds in the dead man's chest.
His lying tone was obvious. I stared at him, alarmed. "Carl, what did you DO?!"
He waved a hand nonchalantly. "Me? I didn't do this."
"Explain what happened, Carl!" I said angrily. These kinds of things seemed to happen whenever I went out...
"I've never seen him before in my life!" Carl protested.
"Why did you kill this person, Carl?!"
"I do not kill people. That is..." he couldn't help glancing back towards the kitchen. "That is my LEAST favorite thing to do."
I sighed. "Carl, tell me exactly what you were doing before I got home."
He frowned and shifted

But that didn't stop him from finding her presence to be a relief from reality. He would find himself staring at her from across the room, his crimson orbs opened a little wider then usual. No, she never looked back at him. Yet that never stopped him from gazing at her with a blush sprinkled across his cheeks.
After some time, a big headed boy began to notice his enemy's obvious fondness to the girl that was so intent on pretending he did not exist. At first, he found the whole situation very amusing, and began taunting the alien relentlessly about his crush, which usually ended with the human having a pain in a place th

"I'm not sure what you're referring to," he said innocently.
"You sunk an entire cruise ship, Carl!"
"Are you sure that was me? I think I would remember something like that." He sat down on the floor of the lifeboat we were in, crossing his legs and looking up at me.
I crossed my arms. "Carl, I watched you fire a harpoon into the captain's face." I didn't even know how Carl knew how to fire a harpoon!
"That sounds dangerous."
"You were head-butting children off the side of the ship!"
"That, ah, must have been horrible to watch." Carl's expression said different--he looked like he was enjoying this.
"And then you started making out with the ice sculptures!" I cried, exasperated.
Carl smiled, as if in doing this, he'd been doing a great service to society. "Thank god that the children weren't on board

He is here now. Uncle Ardeth. He came swiftly at night. No one heard him come, but all the sudden he was here, silent as death itself. Many would find him hard to talk with, for he is indeed very strange, but I find that I have learned much from him already. His exhibit at the museum opened on a Saturday. I told my parents I was going to visit the tomb of Colossus to contemplate my life (Thankfully I was able to re-mummify Colossus after a horrible incident with Toshiaki's "pet" that I do not wish to recall.) because I knew they wished for me to not be anywhere near the exhibit. May the spirit of Colossus take pity on me for the awful lie I have told. I will pay a fitting tribute later.
Uncle Ardeth received me at the exhibit with great pleasure and told me he was sure Colossus would look down with great fortune on my lie, for Uncle Ardeth was certain that if I had not come he would not h

He began simply, much like most do. Once thing was different, however: with his first step onto Gielinor, he was a troll, through and through. He began as a simple troll, claiming to dance for money but never actually dancing when paid. Time passed; he found more creative ways to troll, smithing a full set of iron armor, finding a group of low leveled players, claiming to be giving away free armor and actually giving one of them the set, watching their hopes and dreams rise as they saw this one actually gave away free armor, relishing the feel of their hopes in his hands, and crushing them as he ran away, laughing. More time passed; he found the forums. He became an official forum troll, trolling the rants forum when least expected to. He continued along, gaining power as a troll. He annoyed people as much as possible, stealing kills, spamming forums, tricking newer players into giving him their precious tinderboxes. Time passed, and he found the ultimate form
45 Facts I Bet You Didn't Know About Black Butler1. In episode 17, when Undertaker is in the pot of salt, Sebastian holds his handkerchief to his nose. This implies demons have an aversion to salt, whether it be rock salt or just salt in general. This wouldn't be such an outrageous statement, seeing as some other shows, movies, and books (ex. Supernatural) say that salt is good for keeping demons at bay by sprinkling a trail in front of doors or windows to keep them out of a house.45 Facts I Bet You Didn't Know About Black Butler3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
2. Sebastian is based off of a French inquisitor (noble, officer running a certain part of an area). How? "Sebastien" lived in 16th century France, and was most famous for his books on demon possession and classification. His books are still somewhat used today.
3. In the most recent manga arc as well as other times within the manga, Sebastian is seen wearing rosary beads along with his teacher outfit. Whether this be of arrogance or not, this shows that Sebastian is not affected by many "holy" things (ex. Rosaries, holy water, etc.).

I killed my wife,
Now Im alone,
I have no fight.
Now I start anew,
I follow a new path.
A path that atones,
For the past.
As a boy I had dreamt of flight,
But now my wish is to,
To those Ive cursed,
With my own bare hands,
I would leave this world,
If it was to make amends.
Each day your heart,
Comes closer to a stop.
Its beats are limited,
But mine is still yet soft.
My life is over,
Yet my beat goes on.
Yours is just starting,
But your heart does not have long.
As the moment draws,
I know what to do.
I report my own.
The creature that kills.
Now my time has come,
Yours does not have to end.
Take what was mine,
As your own.
What I have to lend.
And you will meet my eyes sooner,
Than at the end.

His parents were fighting again. It did not bother Nassor very much anymore. He had grown used to it. They fought about a lot of things, but mostly about family. His father, Herman Karloff was always inviting his relatives to stay when they were anywhere nearby. His mother, Mary Shelley Karloff did not appreciate this. In her mind, Herman's relatives were a bit too strange for her taste and she wanted to keep them away from Nassor because she did not want him becoming as strange as the rest of the Karloffs. And now he could hear them again, passing his room and going down the stairs, their voices raised.
"Herman I don't want to hear another word about it. Of all the people in the world, why Uncle Ardeth?" His mother was obviously very disturbed by the thought of this Uncle Ardeth, and this intrigued Nassor.

Light is an amazing power, though sometimes it can be scary. Just as scary as the darkness, the kind that swallows you whole. Light can swallow you as well. It has a bigger appetite than that bad darkness.
Light surrounded and invaded Rox's eyes as his eyelids fluttered. He felt sluggish and drowsy, along with having a really bad taste upon his tongue. He couldn't remember what was or had been going on, he wished to know though. His sapphire eyes suddenly widened as his senses cleared enough to realize he couldn't move his arms and to make it worst there was a cold feeling around his wrists. He shook his arms when he found he had the strength only to yelp and whimper as there were tight hand cuffs secure on his skin.
"No no no no. NO! What in the name of the sea happened!?" He yelled as he kept moving against his restraints, soon realizing that it was more painful than getting easier to free himself. He snapped the cuffs against wooden headboard b
