In the centre of a completely white room is a round black conference table, giving it the appearance of being inside a large eye.
After a bio-scan, the door opens and four individuals enter the Faraday cage and take up seats around the table.
One of the men sits down and grumbles, "Never thought I'd have to come back here again,"
"Now's not the time for your whining, Ned. We've got bigger problems,"
The one named Ned grits his teeth and says, "Please tell me it's not about "

Mewtwo glared at Lucario, eyes so ferocious he was certain he would go blind if he did not look away from them. Supposedly the powerful psychic had the ability to kill him before he could even blink, and so he sharpened his reflexes as much as possible and was ready to leap away at the slightest notice of an attack. Meanwhile, the dark radiance grew so thick and hopeless that Lucario wondered if maybe he had already been attacked, life fading away from him as he was slowly dying.
Instantly, everything let up as Mewtwo turned his back to them through a swaying motion, Lucario falling forward in surprise.
"Farewell," he said, bending his legs to the ground and getting ready to take off.
"Wait, Mewtwo!" Mew shouted in surprise as she flew towards him, "You came all this way for nothing!?"
"Silence, original!" Mewtwo roared ferociously, stopping himself but still not turning around, "I tolerate your presence under protest. If you wish me to mingle with other legendaries, regular Pokém

Mersz-e, ha kioldom fehér szárnyaim,
Vérünktől vöröslik a hófehér tájék;
Kacagva fagyunk meg e boldog órán még,
Vagy csillagokkal borítod életem?
Vagy inkább bőrömbe rajzolsz
Perzselve pusztító álmokat?
Holdtól pislákoló tájon,
Hol zizegve szökkennek az árnyak,
Énekelsz-e nekem? Velem?
Míg az árnyak ránk találnak?
Persze, hiszen ezért élünk,
Akkor jó, ha forr a vérünk,
És sikolyunktól hangos a táj.
Csobbanok a hűs patakban,
Szelíd vagyok vad szavakban,
És így sohasem fagy meg a nyár.
Kedves, kerge lepke, kergetni mersz-e?
Mersz-e, ha szívem adom cserébe,

Latios carried Blaze on his back and I carried Ralts on mine as we headed up the mountains, where Flarewhip, the keeper of the Flame Sword awaits us and Blaze's battle. Blaze leaped off of Latios and started to jog quickly. I have no idea why he's doing that. Then, as the top reaches our sight, Blaze stops in front of a small oasis. He looks down at his refection.
I slowly look over his shoulder to see his reflection, mine, Jen's, and another. It's weird, but I think the Legendary Pokemon Jirachi is here. I jerk my head backwards to see him floating in fron of us. Lstios heads over to my side. Blaze turns around to see him.
"You seek a wish, don't you?" Jirachi calmly asks Blaze. Blaze nods. He reaches his hand out and holds a star peice. Jirachi stares happily at it and accepts it from him. "Ok, what is your wish?"
"I wish to find Flarewhip and battle him," he says back. Jirachi's head jerks up with eyes wide open. He's completely shocked by his answer.

The Other Ninja 18The sound of dripping water was one that Leonardo knew very well. It was a noise that rarely faltered in the New York City sewers. Having lived in them for nearly seventeen years, the terrapin had learned to disregard the sound. It was insignificant. So as he walked through the underground tunnels, his ears did not listen to the monotonous repeat of liquid plopping to the ground. Instead, they strained to hear other sounds ones that would signal the location of his quarry. Leonardo was looking for Alexandria and he was determined to find her.The Other Ninja 183 years ago in Settings More Like This
Unfortunately for him, the female was proving to be a difficult catch. More than thirty minutes had passed since he entered the sewers and still he searched on. When he had begun his pursuit, some inner instinct compelled him to go left from the entrance to the lair. He had used that instinct to weave through the tunnels, ever alert for any signs of her having passed. There had been nothing obvious so far. Leo blew a sigh of frustration. M

New Bark town. Springtime. New Bark town had a nice spring temperature, about 20 ° C. Not too warm, and not too cold. The sun was shining, and sometimes a flock of Pidgey flew over. You could smell the scent of just mowed grass, and the Sakura were in full bloom.

Metabee turned his head angrily to face the medalorian stepping on him.
"You..." - he said as the light on his eyes faded - "You..." - he started glowing and his colors changed as well - "You... MONSTER!" - he yelled while shooting beams of white light from his head at the medalorian.
The machine flew and hit the ceiling very hard, then he fell on the ground. He slowly got back up on his feet, while Metabee was already standing.
"You're getting quite fond of the power, aren't you?" - he said - "But I'll tell you something, you're not the only one who has it." - he started glowing as well and his silver color became shinier than before - "I'm sure you have no idea of what this power is." - he laughed a bit - "This is the Meda State, a special state of power augmentation that heals all our wounds and multiplies our power to an infinite amount.

Hiroshi's ice cold voice cut through the intense silence of the dining room. His brown eyes snapped dangerously, their anger directed across the table towards his eldest brother. The head of the Lotus family looked up from his plate. Dressed smartly in a gray suit, he sat perfectly straight in his chair. His short black hair was perfectly combed, complimented by a neatly trimmed goatee. He said nothing, merely raised an eyebrow inquisitively.
"Andria was tracked down by Bishop," Hiroshi said, his hands curling into fists. "He was going to use her again and you don't care."
"She managed to escape, did she not?" Kenta responded calmly. Taking a sip of water, he watched his brother over the rim of his glass.
The unconcerned nature of the reply infuriated Hiroshi. Face flushed and teeth clenched, he struggled to keep his tone level. "That's not the point."
"Then what is your point?"
"She needs to come home!" the youngest Lotus son burst out. "She's not safe

Annyi szabad, vidám nap után.
Gondolom, most vége lesz a nyárnak,
Hiába csüngök gazdámnak karján.
Pihés, arany szárnyaim rendezem,
És várok arra, hogy megérintsenek,
S ha így van, csodás dalom elkezdem,
Mert komor óráim most nincsenek.
Vajon miért fordulnak felém,
Kik eddig sohasem tették?
Miért szórnak magot elém,
Kik ezelőtt folyton elvették?
És ím, hát ketrecbe zártak,
De boldogan telnek a fényes napok.
Új ablaka nyílt meg a világnak,
És lehetek rab, mégis szabad vagyok.

for many reasons. If not you've most likely been living under a rock. If you do remember
then I have an interesting tale for you. So I'm sure everyone knows of the supposed

hooked up via Gamebridge I was hunting down codes for my Gameshark when I found this
website that had an all black background. It had a short description and a code, the
description was as follows. "Have you ever wondered what's behind those doors in Grunty's
Lab? Well now you can finally find out with this code!" What followed was a rather short
two line code with a simple description. I couldn't believe it, like really, I was
entirely skeptical. Though something at the back of my mind wanted me to believe, so I
rubbed my head and sighed and plugged in my Gameshark mounting Banjo Kazooie on top. I

Over two hours had passed since Miss Nae had started repairing the medal. The cops had arrived and taken the black dressed man with them. But before he left, he humbly went to Erika and handed her an object.
"It was yours. You forgot it down there." - he said as he gave her the golden beetle.
She blinked, then just nodded and watched as he entered the police car. In the end, she realized there was no villain in all of that, only victims. Silent tears rolled from her eyes.
Sometime later, the sun was rising. The kids had accommodated themselves in Kam's car, while the medabots either stood or sat on the ground. After Honey brought some water to Erika a couple of times, the girl finally calmed down. Ikki and the others tried to cheer her up, saying Miss Nae would fix Brass, giving her some hope.
On the other hand, Metabee was really quiet. He just sat on the ground with his arms crossed. He was still in his golden and silver armor, though the white glow wasn't that bright
What I knowSometimes I'm a songwriter,What I know5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Haven't you heard?
But how does it feel to write a masterpiece
And forget every single word?
And you break a string, and you drop a pick,
And your fingers bleed, and it's running thick.
And I don't know what I know,
Or why I play guitar,
I'll never make your heart glow,
And I'll never go far.
I don't know what I know,
But I still play guitar...
Sometimes I'm a musician,
Don't you feel the same?
But how does it feel when you trip on stage,
And all your songs are lame?
And you drop the beat and lose your place,
And you can see it on everyone's face,
Sometimes I'm a performer,
So you're not alone.
But how does it feel when the power's out,
And everyone goes home?
Now you're out of the job and out of cash,
And you know your food isn't gonna last
Sometimes I'm an optimist,
Isn't that a surprise?
And how does it feel when you walk on stage,
And see then dancing before your eyes?
And the people are great, and the pay is high,
The Other Ninja 19A hot, yellow sun had little mercy for the world it shined down on. Its bright rays were reflected by the waves of a large lake which caused it to shimmer brilliantly. Sleek, black-scaled fish with long, trailing tail fins darted about, occasionally breaking the surface for a playful leap. They dodged around the support columns of the stone bridge that spanned the lake's three mile width. The bridge was nearly deserted except for two young princes at the north end. Shirtless and sweaty, they jogged in step across the passageway.The Other Ninja 193 years ago in Settings More Like This

"Why the hell would I?" Knaxx countered with a question of his own.
"Because you're downright anal about it," the former answered. "I'm pretty sure you busted a blood vessel the last time I didn't turn one in."
Knaxx rolled his purple eyes. "One of us has to be responsible."

The world is falling apart today,
somebody's dropped the bomb.
Fire is raining from the sky,
and the Devil's knocking at our front door.
Armies parade the streets today,
People drop like flies.
Gunshots are heard outside the house
and a light fills the sky above the city.
The aftermath has devastated,
Not a soul was left alive.
The culprit gives a toothy smile,
And puts his big red button back in his pocket.

Wings Of Fire
Send me off to the fiery abyss
Free me from life's grip
Morals have been tortured
Strengths have been reversed
Desires have been submersed
I plead for you to pass the torch
Hand over the destiny I've been waiting for
Let me finish off this unbearable dirge
Weep not for singed sins
Leave behind the memories
Mourn not for scarred skin
Forgive every tragedy
Set ablaze that darkness within
Grasp onto serenity
Fuel the flame for the ending
Cling onto clarity
There's peace after pain
Calm can engulf chaos
There's love behind hate
Freedom masks weakness
I've abandoned every promise
I couldn't complete what was said
My hope cannot rise from the ashes
Please, do not follow my footprints of flame
They only lead down a path where infernos cascade
There is no honorable life or even death for what I became
Consume this cruel reality

Your lips remain painted with the scars of torment
Carved so as to split with every word of speech
The glass that slices through your softened flesh
Bears the marking we know as 'Vinashuka'
And now he lies beneath the falling sand
Drowning in a world that is sinking away
Though his feet will seek the stability of ground
He finds himself caught by 'Vinashuka'
A disturbing word that rings hollow at best
For it carries the tone of a tainted solitude
A heart that has been corrupted by physical pain
Can only scream 'Vinashuka!'
How does a man know when he has gone insane?
To descend into a world where logic is naught
A moon that carries the colour of blood
Shall paint my skin with 'Vinashuka'
I have lost all sense of meaning in this place
There is no where else for my soul to flee
Caught within the whispers of delusory madness
I can only repeat Vinashuka...
