Egypt The Silent Man and the Proud Man
When Turkey last came to his house, that breezy little palace in the oasis, he was so much different. He was ambitious, fiery, a stir-about, always talking about his new empire, how the two of them would one day, with no doubt, rule the entire world.
Egypt found his company quite entertaining and amusing, and of course Turkey reminded him of his father, Ancient Rome. They both had that powerful aura that made anyone and everyone submit before their will.
So why not play along, Gupta thought.
But now now he was different. For one thing, he did not come alone: he was accompanied by a young woman and a child; and whats more important, he was well, practically glowing of pride and happiness.
You seem different Egypt noted quietly as he poured his guests some hibiscus tea. Turkey was sitting on the biggest and most comfortable pillow, with the young and delicate-looking woma
APH: PrayerThe Aegean Sea is once again the sea of war. For centuries the tide has been set and fixed, waves throwing themselves against the west, the mighty Ottoman Empire ruling the Sea. But now the tide has turned. The cradle of Europe rises.APH: Prayer2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Two men were standing on an ancient temple’s ruins on a distant isle far away in the blue Aegean Sea with the sun blazing over them. They were both armed and facing each other while a battle raged all around them as soldiers clashed, fought and died. Greece tightened his grip on his halberd and panted with exhaustion. He had fought for years now, his white clothing stained with dirt and ash and blood, his hair messy and dirty and his brow sweating. And the man who stood before him, clothed in red and white cloaks and robes and wearing a large turban, shadowing his masked face, was also struggling to keep himself up, gripping his sword with the ferocity of a wounded lion.
“End this madness now”, the Ottoman Empire said. “Now

Incase you guys are confused about Russia's accent here's a cheat sheet:
w's turn into v's
v's turn into f's
g's turn into k's
d's turn into t's
th turns into s or z, I used z since I already used it for France.
Oh and, sorry I'm a pronunciation Nazi, Russia's name is pronounced E-VAN not EYE-VAN
Also someone pointed out something with France's accent that I totally forgot g's are pronounced like j's and vise versa so I'm going to start doing that.
And after watching the episodes with Spain again, I heard him use 'chu' as you so I'm going to do that too! Plus it just sounds so cute^^

The Early Church II-1: The MartyrsThe Early Church II-1: The Martyrs2 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Last time we examined the message of Christianity and how it was presented to both Jew and Gentile. The message of Christ was a message of dignity, divine sonship and daughterhood, and a noble mission, namely the salvation of all in the name of Christ Jesus.
This, however, came with many difficulties. There were many who refused to hear the message. Others simply saw God as one among many appropriating what was profitable to them in the Christian message. Others reacted violently. Of these three, it may seem strange to hear that the second problem, corrupted teaching, was actually the most destructive to the Church. While there were those who were outside the Church who simply selected a few points and incorporated them into their pagan theology there were plenty of Christians who, because of culture, (both abundance and lack of) learning, and zeal, caused a great deal of trouble by their words.
In order to counteract these false teachings and bad influences the Church,

The voices echoed through his head and left a bitter taste in his mind. He hadn't known his brain had grown taste buds but it obviously had. He shuddered, still dizzy and dazed. He needed a few seconds to realize that his eyes were closed and that he could barely move (not that he actually planned to; his body felt like one single bruise). Sadiq groaned but all that left his mouth was a toneless whimper. What had happened to him? The last thing he remembered was turning a corner at his place. Gupta had come over to inform him about Karpusi's disappearance that had occurred three days before.

A CASE FOR CHRISTIANITY
I can't quote Scripture. I don't know much theology, and I can't speak for all the divisions of Christendom. But, as a practicing Christian, I do know a bit about my religionenough to get annoyed when ignorant people (I'm looking at you, Angry Forum Posters) consider Christianity to be hateful and Christians to be naïve.
I'm Orthodox Christian. The Orthodox Church is regarded as the original Christian church, dating back to the time of Christ. (No, the Catholic Church isn't the firstthey split from the Orthodox in 1054 over many issues.) I won't go into those details here, but if you are curious to know more, a fantastic article which explains the differences between the Orthodoxy and Catholicism can be found in the authour's comments.
Anyway, since I'm Orthodox Christian, many beliefs shared by the Orthodox will show up in the following essay.
Mira and Irina-The snow continued to fall in a bitter, unending barrage. Almost all of Kiev's residents were hidden away within their simple wooden houses. One house in particular held many wonders. It was a larger log built house, modest, but noticeably larger than most. It lay on the outskirts of the city and it was known to be the abode of Mira, the Rus' tribeswoman. It had been some time since Mira slew the vicious Demon from the Far East. She and her domovoi companion had managed to nurse Irina back to health.Mira and Irina3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I'm glad your injuries are healing nicely. It seems the sour weather hasn't affected you much either." Mira says with a soft smile to Irina.

He let his eyes wander around once again. One wall of the pretty villa was torn up and cracks ran across the white concrete in a complicated pattern. A few sheets of white paper were left in the entry hall, unattended by the former inhabitants. They must have been in a great hurry for most of the furniture was not removed, not even covered with the usual gray awning. He entered the house, silently he walked through the corridors, peeking into rooms and opening random doors. To him it didn't seem like anyone had ever lived here. There were no personal features anywhere to be found. Everything was plain and effectively furnished. Even the kitchen, which was a big bright room filled with metallic plates that made up the stove, fridge and dishwasher, didn't appear to ever have seen the slightest trace of food in its entire life.

You sat up as well, your legs on either side of him. You wrapped your arms around his broad torso while you snuggled your chin into the crook of his neck.
‘’Do you want to talk about it?’’ you asked him.
‘’No, just…stay with me.’’ He sighed, knowing that you already guessed he had another nightmare.
His nightmare’s were horrible, at least for Logan they couldn’t be worse. You were always there, and he was never able to help you as you were attacked.

Another day of battle with Russia had exhausted him as always. Sweden has been in wars with Russia many times previously, but this war was one of the deadliest. Russia seemed to have gotten stronger, as he always had with every passing of a new war, and this time, Sweden wasnt just fighting one opponent; he was fighting six. Russia, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Lithuania, and Saxony of Germany had joined to Aid Russia in his conquest. They appropriately titled themselves the Northern Alliance.
Although the Allies of Russia had not had close ties with Sweden, it seemed unlikely that they would start a war with him unless provoked. Berwald guessed that Russia wanted to take Sweden completely this

Human etnic groupsYou may think humanity is a mere word to describe a people but actually there are so much different cultures within their civilization. Originally, humanity was born from the Craddle people known as "Aravuthi" but this lineage was first divided into 5 root etnic groups creating soon decades after many other etnic groups, colonizing the Lands.Human etnic groups1 year ago in Settings More Like This
Those root etnic groups are deeply different considering both the environment they live in and their society and their ornagization.
The Emnoreans, usually with fair skin and hair, live in fertile plains and meadows, rich coasts and mountains in which they have been able to develop trade and found cities. Emnoreans are the most important humans in the Lands, at least they are the most numerous: they were able to conclude pacts and alliance with ancient and powerful peoples such as the Elves, Dwarves or even Asuras, they had to live with when the Aravuthis left the Atlantides. Usually they are living in society with a strict hierarchy, in ge

They were both sitting in Vlad's castle, where he has been living. The weather was awful. It was raining cats and dogs. And it didn't seem to stop soon. Fortunately, inside the Poenari Castle it was warm and cosy. Gilbert was looking at fireplace. He seemed absent.
"What?", he asked Romania.
Vlad laughed silently.
"You seemed very absent when I was talking about my family and childhood, didn't you, my little Prussian?".
Vlad loved to call Gilbert "little Prussian" and it looked like Prussia didn't mind that.
However, Romania was talking with his new friend about his own life. His family. About his life with with Dacia, his father, and Moldova, his little sister. Next Turkey and Hungary tried to destroy Wallachia, country that Vlad used to be. And that was the reason Romania became a vampire. Even if his own people were scared of him. Even his little sister.

But I'm prepared for the backlash as I begin to say,

Boys are the silent ones, first and foremost,

Next are the bullied, for they're like gum on shoes,

Consider the victims who run around confused,
who despite their ordeals,

And we have babies who are killed before birth,
whose lives are stolen from them,
before they come to earth.
Some are unwanted, and some are just wrong,
because who wants a disabled child or a girl,

Well... That's not entirely true. He appreciates a tune when he hears one... and has enough sense of pitch to be irritated when Feliciano sings loudly and off-key in his ear. That's just obnoxious.
But no, Ludwig has never really bothered to pursue the musical path; he's always been much more focused on more practical matters, like training and money and keeping things running smoothly. He has nothing against Roderich for devoting so much time to music, though he really does wish the man would take something else in life seriously for once, nor does he hold Gilbert's taste against him.
Though, Ludwig does occasionally look back upon the day Gilbert discovered heavy metal, and shudder. He's had to smack his brother to get Gilbert to hear him far too many times. And that thumping bass just gives him a headache.
Yes, Ludwig is used to Gilbert's irritating bass, his obnoxious guttural, screaming music and the equally grating manufactured techno beats. They've j
