A girl supposed to be by my heart and my soul,
But my body doesn't represent me,
My body isn't me.
I'm supposed to be a guy,
A guy supposed by my family and society,
Supposed to live happily in a body that's not mine.
I'm not a guy.

They say that I am an abomination.
They say that what I feel is wrong.
They say that God hates what I am.
They say a lot of things, don't they?
I tell them that I love.
I tell them that I am perfectly natural.
I tell them that they don't know what I feel.
I tell them that their God is cruel,
and that I want nothing to do with him.
They tell me that I will surely burn for my sins,
and that I should repent now to save my soul.
I ask them, what is a worse sin, loving another, or living a lie?
I ask them, if that is the price of heaven,
Why would anybody want to pay it?
They tell me that I am a horrible person.
I ask them, who is worse, the man who loves another,
or the town that kills him because of it?
The woman who lives with another all of her life,
Or the business that makes her work while her partner lies dieing?
They look at me in perplexity,
For they know not how to answer.
As I stand here smiling,
Weathering their hatred,
And showing them only kin

He stood there in front of me, nothing but crazed, lonely, desperation in his eyes. Once vibrant green skin had paled more than I thought possible. Now he just looked plain sickly. Bright ruby eyes had faded and lost all of their wide-eyed wonder and spark. Antennas were drooped so low, they grazed his shoulders when he made the slightest movement.
Zim had no doubt walked all the way here out of his disguise. But no one turned their head at the "crazy foreign kid disguised as an alien". How backwards they had it . And they would never know.
I didn't know for sure why Zim was here. But I did know why he looked so wrong. Like an abandoned puppy that had been kicked out of a moving vehicle. This time he hadn't been able to hit the ground running.
Two weeks ago I had watched his Tallest, his species' leaders, tell him he was a 'defect'. An outcast, a waste of space, an idiot, an annoyance. Not an Irken. As I watched throu

Just One Kiss: Prologue
It was the night. The night my life changed forever. No, it wasn't just the night I went to the movies with my beloved for the first time. It wasn't just the first time I made out with my beloved in the theater, or the first time I saw Attack of the Space Mutants IV. No it was more. It was more than just a silly date at the movie theater. It was the night I lost something. Something I never cared about anyway. Something I knew I would lose eventually when I began dating my beloved. It was the night the night I lost my virginity. And I'm no ordinary girl. I'm Helga. Helga G. Pataki. The girl no-one would expect to lose her virginity before Rhonda. A girl who was labeled whore by Rhonda, maybe for 3 months or maybe 6. The girl everyone-else was jealous of (including Rhonda). I was Helga G. Pataki the girl who lost her virginity at 14.

They just didn't understand it, not at all.
Most of the kids in Mr. Simmons's fifth grade class at P.S. 118 didn't get it, and "it" was the budding romantic relationship between Arnold, their football-headed friend and main voice of reason, and Helga Pataki, the pig-tailed class bully.
And yet, they knew there was something strange going on between them ever since they returned from their class trip to San Lorenzo.
I can see what's happening (What?)
And they don't have a clue (Who?)
They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line
Our trio's down to two (Oh)
There were hints that something was changing between them on the plane ride home, but no one said anything as they didn't have exact proof.
Rhonda was the first to notice something, as she liked to gossip and be nosy. Even though she once made a love calculator that predicted that Arnold and Helga would one day wed, she eventually concluded that the two of them were total opposites, a complete mismatch. She thought that Arnol

He was so small, his thin frame easily lost to my eyes in the crowd. The only way I could really keep him in my line of vision was to watch for that shock of blonde hair. It completely defied the laws of gravity, spikes pointing in all directions not unlike my own. It made me smile, and not very much could do that these days.
I absentmindedly flipped my Zippo open and closed as I watched him make his way to a barstool not far away from mine. It seemed luck was in my favor tonight. Now I could get a better look at him.
As I watched him order a drink, my eyes took in the simplicity of his attire -- he was dressed entirely in black, from his button-down shirt to his shoelaces, with the exception of a black and white checkered wristband decorating his left arm.
His outward appearance shouldn't have drawn my attention the way it did -- really, he was the most normal-lookin

He was sleeping. So peacefully. There were not signs of the sufferings he endured for the past six months.
I reached for his hands and hesitated just before touching them.
This is it I told myself. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest, and my body warming up to a fairly new sensation.
To finally be able to feel him..
I lifted his hands gently from his side, kissed them and cupped them to my chest. My heart was racing. His hands were so cold.
He woke up at my touch. For a brief moment he just stared at me. His blue eyes, once so full of life, were dull and tired.
I felt as if something had pierced my heart.
Ro.. Roxas.. I whispered, trembling slightly.
He smiled back at me. I knew he still can see me.
I had to tell him. He had to know.

Packed against the closet wall
With it's hurts and dirt and pain
And the past that no one knows

The Golden Years of Kids' WBThe Golden Years of Kids' WB7 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Almost a year ago, Kids' WB!, the Saturday morning cartoon block on The CW, ceased to exist as a television programming block. When 4Kids Entertainment's programming block moved from FOX to the network formerly known as The WB, no one was happy about it, and the Kids' WB! website has since been rebranded as an online network that, let's face it, isn't the same at all. I'm sure that just about everyone here really misses the Kids' WB! programming block, so I've decided to bring in this speech I wrote here. I originally wrote this in late 2007 as an early tribute for a post in the "Other Cartoons" section of The Mucha Lucha Fan Forum, and then later edited it a bit before posting it on Retroland.com, which seemed like the perfect place for me to make it available; now, seeing how a fellow fan put her own essay about the Steven Spielberg/WB cartoons here, I've decided to post this essay here on DA. So here it is, my essay on what I (and probably many) believe were the best years of Kids'

Kakashi leaned into the wood in the comfortable fork he had found in this particular tree. It had a very good position for supervising his students during their training sessions. One leg was draped along the length of the horizontal branch while the other was propped up against his chest, a precious copy of /Icha Icha/ resting open on that thigh. The Jounin's eye darted from the extra-curricular reading to perform his periodical check on the two Genins training below him.
It was no surprise to find the raven haired boy and hyperactive blonde sparring as fiercely as they were at that moment. Kakashi sighed. No it wasn't a surprise but today was supposed to be different. Today Sakura was supposed to be fighting one-on-one with Naruto while Sasuke mediated atop a tree in the heat. His brilliant plan to keep the unexpected spice in their training had to wait until

"Where are you Zim?" He murmmered, straightening the blue scarf hanging around his neck with hands that were concealed by matching gloves, one of which held a pair of goggles tightly.
It had been nearly a year and a half (3) since the alien had vanished from earth, giving no warning and leaving behind no trace that he had ever existed. The lot he had inhibited was once more empty space, the lab which had been built beneath it now just a bunch of dirt.

For all new authors who need help with keeping the characters of the Jak and Daxter universe 'in character', just follow these simple guidelines! Take it from an author who has been writing Jak and Daxter fanfiction for four years, and has hundreds of fans.
Jak/Mar/Jak Mar (Post-Prison): Make him every single jerk you've ever known. Go completely over-board on contempt and angst. As long as you remember that, no matter how hot he is, he is a bastard, you'll do just fine. And about his name? Whichever name sounds right to you, go ahead and use it. In terms of romance, the two main pairings for Jak are Keira and Ashelin, Yaoi lovers seem to like Jak paired up with Torn or Daxter. Pick your favorite pairing, and defend it by the skin of your teeth. (Jak/Keira 4ever!!!!)

I really don't care if a character's gay.
It's only a fandom, as hard as you try
To get me to believe that your OC flies
Above oceans and mountains and hillsides and caves
I don't give a shit if they fly out in space.
It's only a fandom, no matter how far
You're willing to go to get me up on par
With universes and story arcs and Japanese cuts
Of the series that pretty much has all its guts
Labeled and colored just like in my book
On human biology and stained with some gook.
It's only a fandom, although you might fight
That your theory is better than mine and you're right
On how a character's past may have been
And explains the mental state they're now in.
Because of their childhood, so calm and serene
Until came that night that feels like a bad dream
Where somebody dies or gets killed or just leaves,
Making this character hide cuts under his sleeves.
It's only a fandom although you may cry
To see one of your most favorite characters die

After eight years I had accepted the fact that I would never see the one known to me as Mr. Dwicky ever again. It was something disappointment and age had let me bury in the back of my head. I had given up trying to find signals from that strange ship he had taken. I had given up sitting on my roof hoping that the one who lied about believing me would come back sometime soon and apologize for ever doubting me. After awhile I finally had to just tell myself it was hopeless and let the memory from that night die.
Imagine my complete surprise after all of that time, and all of that hope just to find him knocking on my door at three in the morning on a Thursday.
I should have been ecstatic. I should have been jumping around asking him all about space and telling him how I had always hoped he would come back. It wasn't at all like that though. Those days were gone. For some reason I just couldn't feel anything as I stared at him. It was as if he were just another passerby come to sell me us

He was betting on the latter.
