A few words from the author:
The chapter below has come into being spontaneously, for fun, without the bigger concept of writing any more chapters. It wasn’t supposed to have any form of continuity, and the thread of Marcin & Nivan - the two heroes in this story - was meant as a note of spice in their created lives. Both characters were created for the purpose of a role playing game, both of them had partners in their lives as well as separate histories. And so it was meant to stay... in the beginning that is. But "Karma" wanted it different
After the unexpected warm reception of the first chapter the author decided to continue the story. She wrote the second and the third chapter intertwining the boys paths, added a few others and so the story took shape.
The author intertwines the lives of two men, best friends in the pas

I Taste Like Panic.I never do what I should.I Taste Like Panic.5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Does that mean I do everything Wrong?
I tell those who ask
"Oh yes, I am very self-destructive."
After all, I'm only hurting myself.
And those I have the opportunity to save.
I figure if one were to taste me,
I would taste like panic.
No one knows what that means
But that's how I like it.
I want to throw myself in front of a car
For you. Does that make me Suicidal?
I don't tell those who have never asked,
"Oh yes, all of my smiles are real."
But somehow always appear
To lead them to it.
I believe if feelings had looks
And my legs had a view,
They would resemble fear.
No one knows what that means either.
I'm just waiting to get to the end so I can say,
With a Brave Smile, "Ah well, too late now!"

skin like raindrops in a summer storm.
Dripping and sliding off the bridge of her
nose and gluing her eyelashes into
Her eyes are stormy and dark and words
tumble off her tongue and wrap themselves
around his neck, slowly squeezing tighter
They're breathing hard and their chests
are pounding with each beat of their
With eyes boring into each others they
are saying things that shouldn't be voiced
and shouldn't be heard and shouldn't ever
be said aloud.
I love you
The words splatter to the ground to
fall and sink to the bottom of mud puddles.
Her eyes are unreadable and her mouth is sad.
But as she presses it up against his it upturns
into a small smile.
And kissing in the rain never felt so right.

I remember us sitting on the porch eating your moms home made cookies and drinking lemonade. Suddenly starting to laugh at nothing at all.
I remember me coming out of my house with a soccer ball to see you already there net set up and all.
I remember sneaking in to your older brothers room to play video games
I remember all the adults saying i can't have a best friends who's male since I'm female (how we showed them)
I remember your face when you parents said you were moving , leaving.
I remember your face on the car window tears running down your cheeks.
I remember your curly blond hair and bright blue eyes.
I remember you so clearly,
My first friend
My next door neighbor
My first crush.

Doctors rushing, knowing it's too late
Holds her hand, says he loves her
Flatline ringing in his head
Tears fall, splashing on her lifeless body
Harsh lights, cold, blinding
Driving home, thinking of her
Empty house, lonely silence
Agony, heartwrenching pain
The closet, hidden deep inside
Searching, frantically searching
Grab it, load it, walk to the nightstand
Her smiling face, captured in photograph
Closed eyes, don't think
Next to his head, hands shaking
Deep breath, in, out, in, out
Look at her face one last time
Smile, say they'll be together soon
Pull the trigger, collapse, never to rise again
Unblinking stare, at peace forever more
In the heavens, with his one true love
All Deathnote RulesEntering NamesAll Deathnote Rules5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
The human whose name is written in this note shall die. This note will not take effect unless the writer has the subject's face in mind when writing his/her name. This is to prevent people who share the same name from being affected.
The Death Note will not ever affect a victim whose name has been misspelled four times.
When the same name is written in two or more Death Notes, the Note which was used first will take effect, regardless of the time of death.
If the same name is written in two or more Death Notes within 0.06 seconds, the entry is regarded as simultaneous; the Death Notes will not take effect and the individual will not die.
If a Death Note owner accidentally misspells a person's name four times, that person will be free from being killed by the Death Note. However, if the Death Note owner intentionally misspells the name four times, the owner will die.
The Death Note will not take effect if a victim's name is written on several different pages. Howev

This is an obvious one. It's the teenager that thinks listening to bands like Slipknot makes them metalheads. Luckily, I think most of the world hates this guy/girl, so it isn't much of a threat.

Consejos para evitar el estancamiento artístico
He visto últimamente como personas se han quedado estancadas, y en verdad, me da mucha lástima. He notado que estas personas tienen algunas características en común, puedo mencionar:
*Miedo al cambio
*No aceptan que están estancados
*Siempre hacen las cosas de igual manera
*Jamás experimentan algo nuevo.
Recuerdo que, hace algunos años atrás, personas dibujaban a mi mismo nivel y luego yo los sobrepasé, y estas personas, no echaron ni para atrás ni para adelante. También, hay personas que me superaron bastante y las admiro por eso, y, siempre, les apoyo para que se adelanten más que yo. Por eso, decidí darles algunos consejos para personas que están "estancadas artísticamente".

Words To Ash
My embers burn / A fire roars
My inner war / A blaze of words
I wrote this for you
I wanted you to read it, I really wanted you to
But instead I kept it
So my pain remains hidden
Because I know that I'll probably never see you again
Which means I must find another way for me to be forgiven
Even if it's just a placebo effect
In order for me to try and move on
Because I will always be kind of broken
So this is me trying to undo what you have done
Maybe this has happened to me for a reason
Another tragic gift of believing
That I don't need vengeance
All you have is a life that is ready to break
All you know is how to reap the innocent's faith
All you will ever have is a mind full of guilt, and it's so ready to cave
All you will ever know are the faces of the past, every single one crying in vain
So I will grasp onto this / Closure drawn from my empty heart
Obtaining my justice / Drying my tears that were s

Vive sus sueños junto a su amada
E intenta llorar
Sabiendo que su cuerpo es solo una ilusión
Sin más ser que el todo
Ella prefiere ensordecer el pensamiento
Envolviéndose junto a el
Camuflando sus cuerpos en un abrazo
Los dos juntos en su mundo
Los dos solos entre la multitud
Giran un vals de grises alegrías
Escucha sus lamentos, el juego de su latido
Entretanto su mundo cambia con un correteo
Con letritas de colores fragmentándose
Ella pregunta que es una lágrima
Para descubrirlo solo en el momento

I’d love you like
those couples who grow
into each other and make
poetry out of body language
and wear one another’s
weaknesses when they get
too heavy and talk about
the weather without ever really
meaning the weather at all;
and you’d keep me from
falling asleep in the ocean
and I’d lie about little
things, always confusing
Sunday for Tuesday and
you for somebody with
the same face who
was always afraid of
me. you’d chuckle and
hold me and I’d cave in to
you like the hungry tide
and you’d say I looked
beautiful when I cried
and I wouldn’t believe you

if people were alive,
you’d be the brightest

a million dedications

to paint water lilies or England
to go skydiving or Italy
to fall in love and mean it

And maybe you'll laugh at me tomorrow,

Yet, didn't you always say

The one thing I miss most

God I miss the way you sang to those

Windows 8 Skype issue, and how to fix it!So for the last few months I have not been able to connect to the servers for Desktop Skype, and chat with my friends because of some issue Desktop Skype is having with Windows 8. Today I finally got to messing with the settings, and I have narrowed it down to a network issue. The issue I found was the 'uPnP' setting in the connection settings of Desktop Skype Preferences.Windows 8 Skype issue, and how to fix it!1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Fixing this is quite simple,
Step 1: Navigate yourself to the connections panel, and untick "Enable uPnP"
Step 2: Reboot your system, and launch Desktop Skype when you want. You should now be able to connect again.
WARNING: Do not try to exit Skype when having this error, it tries to update your status on the server, and fails to exit. The only way around this is to reboot anyways.
Thanks for reading my tutorial, if this was helpful for you, you may also be able to use my list of errors, and Fixes for Windows 8 problems.
Is she Mary Sue? Clarifying Mary SueIs she Mary Sue?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So, I realize that everyone has heard of Mary Sue characters, but the thing that bothers me is that Mary has never really been as clarified as she could be. Girls go around crying Mary Sue at every character with long pink hair, then go and create even worse Mary Sue characters in the false illusion that they're making nonMary Sue characters (or even anti-Sues) when in fact they're doing the opposite. Allow me to explain how this seems to happen.
First of all the term "Mary Sue" desperately needs to be clarified to these people, so this brings us to the very important question: What IS a Mary Sue?
At least everyone can agree on one thing. Mary Sues are characters that are so perfect it's annoying.
But. What do they mean by perfect? Everyone has different ideas of that, naturally. Unfortunately, this is how many fanfiction (and other) writers make their biggest mistakes.
When you hear the name Mary Sue what pops up in your mind? A be
