Jack was a movie fanatic, he watched anything and everything that came to theaters, he especially liked ones that had cool ideas and twists at the end. His favorite movie was Shutter Island, but Inception had just come out on DVD so he had to see if it was as good as everyone said. After he got home from getting the movie he put it in and turned off the lights so his mirror wouldn't create such a annoying shine in his small, dull apartment. He grabbed the remote and hit play. About halfway into the movie he thought to himself, "I wish I could be in Ellen Page's position, that would be so cool." A few minutes passed and he began to feel tingles in his feet, he just assumed they were asleep and didn't pay much attention, they became rather small and dainty. The feeling went up his legs, and yet again he just passed it off as some sort of bad sitting position, so he moved a bit and continued to watch. His legs became much more slender and ladylike, while all his body hair began
Different Prey Hunting TacticsHunting takes different skills and each different skill depends on whatever it is that you are hunting.Different Prey Hunting Tactics5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Hunting Mice is probably one of the most simple of them all. Number one make sure you make no noise so not to alert the mouse you're coming. Number two don't let the mouse see your shadow. If a mouse were not to hear you but see your dark and large shadow looming over it, the mouse will run and hide. If you're lucky you could catch it but most likely you won't be able too. Number 3 get as close as you can to the mouse remaining unseen and unheard and then pounce killing it with a swift bite to the neck.
Hunting Beetles isn't exactly common for Cloudclan cats except if most of the prey is gone like during leafbare or if you're a kit practicing hunting skills before your apprenticeship. To catch and kill one isn't entirely difficult probably even the most easiest thing to catch. All it really takes is coming up behind it and either stepping on it with your paw or nibbling it quickly wi

"Hi grandpa. How are you today?" She gives him a hug and sits the plate of cookies in front of him. Her fiancé steps in behind her with a gallon of fresh cow's milk. He hadn't had that since he was a boy. Yum!
He smiles. "When are you getting married??"
She pauses. A different reaction that usual. Usually she says, "Not sure yet. We'll let you know."
"October the eighth."
For a split second he thought there was hope after all. October wasn't too far away. He could make it until then. That would only be a month after the six month mark the doctors gave him back in March. Then she adds .
He didn't know what to say. He'd never make it that long. He knew he couldn't. For a moment, she caught the distress in his eyes, but he looks away quickly back at the cookies and milk. "Thanks for the cookies." H

He was also in human form, his muscular 6ft 10 frame towering over my lean 5ft frame, "Because, they don't know what we are yet and it's best to keep it a secret for now," he said, placing a kiss on my forehead, "Come on we need to get to the gate room."

The Knight seems to be confused, and you feel the sword tip twitch a tad bit before he spoke again.

Mothman Research PaperI was assigned to write a research paper. To my great relief and tremendous delight, I am allowed to write about any topic I wish, so I am going to write my research paper about the Mothman. Now, normally I would launch into a big, dull speech about how I first learned about the Mothman, how the knowledge became an obsession, and…so on and so forth. Fortunately for everyone I don't have time to bore people to sleep, right now, so…yes. To make a long story short: My parents were about to watch a scary movie, "The Mothman Prophecies" (2002, Lakeshore Entertainment, starring Richard Gere and Laura Linney) and asked if I wanted to watch it. I said yes. My life was changed forever, apparently, because the next thing I knew I was trying to know everything possible about this mysterious Mothman character.Mothman Research Paper9 years ago in Historical More Like This

I am a lonely illusion of who I was to you
I wish I stop breathing

"I won't let you go any further."
His words cut through the silence. I looked at him with suspicion.
"What do you think?" I asked a nearby subordinate.
"Judging from the tail, head and stripes, this is a Collkubi, believed to be an extinct species. Probably the last one of it's kind. Body is made for jumping and fighting. Can't run very fast due its short legs and long neck. Hunts by jumping from high places and surprising its prey. Kills by biting in the neck of its victim while pinning its nails in the back. Has an incredible stamina and stubbornness. Doesn't give up before it or its opponent dies," he quickly analysed.
I nodded and thought for a second.
"What are you doing here? Our business doesn't concern you," I said.
"I'm just protecting what I have to protect."
"And that might be?"
"My hunting grounds."
It was clear he wasn't going to retreat, whatever I would say.

Sunlight reflected against the navy blue fur of the loner. He had spent his whole life alone, except for when his mother raised him. She had died the year before from an unknown illness. This was Moon, the lone wolf of the forest.
Moon hated being alone. He was limited to small prey and sour deer meat for food, and he had noone to talk to but himself. He knew what would happen if he tried to join a pack. Loners were despised by all wolves, sometimes even other loners. He had never felt love since his mother was alive. The only feeling he had now were sadness and anger.
Why did his mother have to die? Iris had done nothing wrong, so what was this sickness? She didn't deserve this! Moon simply sighed and lapped water from a stream. A bitter taste met his tongue. He saw a splash of red floating in the water. "Blood?"

The dynamic between core staff, volunteer staff, and the community can at times be pure quality dArama.
It's worth noting that for years I've worked pretty hard to remain neutral on community politics. Today, I'm going to shatter that concept.
Needless to say, I am extremely politically aware of the inner workings of the deviantART community. I read *a lot* of journals, comments, forums, chat rooms. I have fake accounts. I spy.
But I don't spend my time talking politics, instead I focus internally at deviantART designing technologies and implementing understandings with core staff to address the issues I see pop up.
It's time to take a moment to be a bit more petty.
In the inner workings of our politics exists the soul of deviantART. What is this place? What was it meant to do? What does it do? What could we do better? And it's the politics that give insight into how well the greater plan is running.
