Vast White - Reshiram TFPeter had just returned home from doing a little bit of shopping. He was preparing to go on holiday for a few days, and he wanted to make sure that he was prepared for the journey, getting some last minute supplies. As he approached the door, he saw that there were a few items in the post box mounted on the wall next to it. He let himself into the house first before stepping back out with the key to the box, opening it up and removing the contents, locking it back up when he was done. Most of it was just the standard stuf, bills, monthly magazine from his digital tv subsricption, take away menus from restaurants unknown to him...as well as a package from a friend of his.Vast White - Reshiram TF4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Okay, it was a dream, but somehow, I get the feeling that it wasn't just a dream. I had the close feeling that it would be happening. Of course, I didn't know for sure, but who does, right?
The following hours - days, even - I was extremely cautious around Nick. We stayed in Ecruteak for a while, just to stop and look at the nice city. Josh and Alice kept a close eye on me, and Luno was by my side all the time. He didn't ask too often about my vision, and acted real sweet. He really was my ray of sunlight then, always there for me. Glacia was hanging around with me more often. The young girl didn't exactly knew what was happening, but she just was around and always up for a play-battle.

Some of them were suicide/murders. Mothers killing their children, shortly followed by themselves. Kids no older than seven or eight killing themselves. Your own parents slitting th

No harm shall haunt you,

Their stoicism patient as they
Wait for you to crumble.

But here it bathes in nightmares.

For vagrants like you to bear.
The gravestones loom as they
Play their ghoulish tones.
Their static grinds your bones
And orchestra strops to end.

Symptoms: Headache, Migraine, bleeding from eyes or ears, mood swings, irritability, addition to games, unprovoked violence, withdrawal, unresponsiveness, and even suicidal thoughts.
Me: Even though I have listened to Lavender Town music for a long period of time I have not gotten sick or had any symptoms tied to the Lavender Town tone. One of the reasons might be that I'm old enough to not be affected much or at all. The only 'symptom' I've gotten from listening to the Lavender Town theme was a shiver. I did hear the high pitched note however.
My Dad: Even before I tested if he was affected I knew he wouldn't be able to hear it. My dad has bad hearing and so he was not able to hear the high pitched note on the Lavender Town theme. He had gotten no symptoms.

She awoke to the rising day that morning, just as usual. The memory of a weird dream lingered in her mind just a few seconds before disappearing just like the faint morning mist outside. Her head hurt for sleeping for a too short time and the inside of her mouth tasted like tomato sauce and tuna because of the pizza she ate last night. Just the headache and that awful mix of flavors were enough to tell that today was Monday.
"Fuck my life."
She slowly crawled off her bed and rose up to her feet. She felt dizzy for a moment after doing that but she was soon to get on with it and head to her desk. The small, broken mirror on the wall of this gray room revealed the damage that night sleep had caused her hair. It was all fluffy, yet at the same time pointy. In her opinion it looked hideous.

'Yeah, like someone like Nick could control the world? Why would he even want to, right?' I thought.

Conviction filled me, but I chose to fall
I’ve denied the temptations before, rebuked the dark spirits
A voice was telling me otherwise
Reminded me of my flaws, urging me to fall
“It won’t affect anyone else”
“You cannot deny it forever”
I gave in
Like a starving beast diving into a meal, ignoring the obvious trap
As I gave in, I realized how it didn’t satisfy
I realized my thirst remained unquenched, and my shame overflowed
In the aftermath, I felt out of place
My inner passion extinguished
My spiritual sense, burnt out
I recall Peter, and his public denial of Jesus, and am overwhelmed with guilt
I fall to my knees, and pray, profoundly aware of what I had done to the one who had freed me before

Also, this is different from nonfiction writing of Christians and I actually enjoy that literature. I could read for hours a good nonfiction writing with someone that actually goes deep…read some Josh McDowell or Timothy Keller to get what I mean.

From A Closet of Sin to Hope In Christ"We gays can't help that we're born as we are" I’ve heard it said. We humans can't help that we're born into a fallen world any more that we can help the bullying environment of sin that’s forced onto us. Sin is like a spiritual cancer; that if not dealt with in time, will kill us. Yet in the same instance it’s so pleasing to indulge we don’t even know we’re dying.From A Closet of Sin to Hope In Christ1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
All sin, no matter the form it's in, is addictive, and if we choose to submit to it, it becomes our addiction. And often we find ourselves submitting to it; sometimes purposefully, sometimes without even realizing it till it’s too late.
I will gladly admit that I'm addicted to it just as everyone else is, because I’m human. But because I’m human, because I’m made in the image of Christ, I don’t want to be addicted to sin. I want freedom; I want Christ.
