"Puss-in-Boots" CommentaryCommentary and Analysis of Puss-in-Boots from Angela Carters The Bloody Chamber"Puss-in-Boots" Commentary5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
While at first it seems slightly strange having a story for adults told by a cat, it is this voice in Puss-in-Boots that adds to the comedy of the tale. Carter shows us, through using Puss as the narrator, that he is the predominant character, despite being a cat, and despite the fact that the love quest central to the storys subject is between his owner and Signora Panteleone. Puss demands our attention by not only being the voice of the story, but also making it as if we are listening to this story as he is putting the pieces of it together in his head by including his thoughts and humour. This in a way adds humanity to the character of Puss, in that it makes him seem more human and so we can relate to him more. He is not just a pet that gets fed and purrs occasionally, it is Puss that would pilfer the market for breakfast [and] cast his eye over any hand of cards
Painthey say time heals everythingPain2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
time doesn't heal pain
the seconds tick by slowly killing you like a disease
until you are no more than a shell void of emotion
and what is inside this shell now you ask?
it is filled with pain
pain of loss and loneliness
pain of sorrow and emptiness
when will this pain subside?
when will the emptiness be filled?
when will we feel happy again?
when will we be whole again?
why must we feel pain?
what good comes from it?
it allows us to appreciate what we hold precious
it encourages us to hold it tighter
but pain also erodes us
it corrupts us
it destroys us
until we are nothing more than a shadow on this earth
appreciate what you have
for u never know when it will disappear
when it will leave you
when it will be taken from you
protect what you love with all your strength
anything worth loving is also worth fighting for
worth suffering for
worth dying for
they say love never dies and neither does pain
neither can exist without the other
they forever remain

MADMAN CAUGHT! NO MORE PANIC
CITIZENS ARE SAFE AGAIN! JOKER`S BACK TO ARKHAM
BATMAN SEEN IN HIS NEW BATMOBILE
Two months later
PATIENTS` NAME: unknown
PATIENTS` NUMBER: 4774
NICK NAME: The Joker
DATE OF BIRTH: unknown
DOCTOR: Steven Crauton
Joker is a socio- and psycho- path. He shows unsocial behaviors, however allows to have conversation and usually is willing to talk.
Unfortunately, all the facts we know about him are lies. We do not have any believable information about patient 4774.
The main problem of the Joker is the Batman whose arch- nemesis is Joker himself. The only way to get to the Joker goes through the Batman. Because of that it is difficult to put a clear diagnosis. We suspect, it may be schizophrenia and obsessive compulsive disorder.
The doors of the room opened silently. After couple of seconds two completely different men came in. The one who was wearing a uniform had an average face; he was muscled and quite short. The second one, dressed in

His anger and rage threatened to never cease.
In the prison of Hell, looking up at the sky,
His only soft feelings of hope began to die.
His soul rotted for years.
The inhumanity dried up any remaining tears.
A baby's cries erupted one night.
The sound was foreign and inspiring, as was the sight.
The broken man, his heart so charred,
Watched the baby grow up, his expression hard.
Hatred manifested for the mother, who brought the girl into this hell.
Didn't she know how many prisoners had tried to escape and fell?
How cruel was that mother, to bring that girl straight into death.
She'd never feel warmth and happiness on her breath.
Especially not after her mother was taken and killed.
In the commotion of the screaming struggle, the broken man's arms were filled.
He held the girl close and dashed away,
"I will protect you." She heard him say.
The guards weren't concerned with the abandoned five year old.
They had done what they'd been told.

A One More Day Retcon IdeaA One More Day Retcon Idea3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I think because of the time alterations involved with this deal, there should be a massive crack in the time-space continum that effects Spiderman's universe that causes drastic alterations to people's and places' looks that keeps flipping back and forth between the past, present, and future. Spidey recognizes this and thinks that there's a villain involved, possibly Mephisto, and he goes to fight him. However, he encountersan unknown individual who calls herself Renaissance. Spidey asks her if this time-space thing is all her fault, and she reveals to him that HE is the cause of the chaos because of his deal with Mephisto. When Aunt May got shot in Civil War, Mephisto cast him under a spell, an illusion if you will, that put Spidey in a situation that would force him to make a deal with him and alter reality. It is Mephisto's influence that is causing everyone to act so out of character so he can fulfill his Xanatos Gambit. Renaissance explains that Peter and MJ's marriage had a spiri
How My Business WorksHow My Business Works1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
My business works because it's actually not a business. And by this I mean I hardly make any money with my pictures. For me photography is not a way to make money but to invest money, and I work several other jobs to be able to pay for my art. I'm a tour guide on waste to energy plants and wastewater treatment facilities, I'm a concierge at the house I'm living, I work as a Photoshop instructor and on weekends I take care of the library of the University.
Sometimes people say to me: I can hardly believe you're not making money with your photos because they are better than the work of many professional photographers.
Of course it's flattering when somebody says something like that even if I don't always agree. But here's the thing: the very reason why I'm able to work on this level is because I don't have to make money with my pictures. If you're a photographer who wants to make a living out of it you are forced to do things differently. You have to focus on what your customers like and

Such envy construed from a dead, lifeless thing!
One would think I had taken too much of wine
Yet here I still lie, overcome with this dream
When the sensuous dawn and the morning are mine
I curse the sweet cloth that extends his form
So dark, yet inviting in its fibers of night
If the heart is the eyes, then his heart beats on
For his hand is my scepter and his being my sight
Such violence! Such envy! Are mortals so daft?
If a rose stabs itself on the thorns of deceit
I scream out my words, but you only will laugh
At the warring so bloody, yet blindingly sweet
If I lay me down tightly and rightly to sleep
Then dear Death will come tramping, as soon is his due
Announce my cold state, for the flesh will not reap
I am lying in arms so much sweeter than you
