Trick And Treat It was that time of year again.The drifting leaves of the trees were in their warm shades of reds and gold, the crisp nip of autumn, and the scent of spiritual energy present especially in that night. The last day of October, the infamous Halloween. Beneath the darkness illuminated by streetlamps and jack o lanterns,children dressed in various costumes and carrying bags of candy ran amok, shrieking and giggling. By the edge of the town the dark forest loomed, the type of forest parents warned their children not to go into, the type that may hold dark secrets.Trick And Treat3 years ago in Horror More Like This
Standing not far from this forest were two children, twins by the look of it, with the same golden hair, bright blue eyes and cute faces. The girl wore a ruffled red dress and maroon shawl, and large maroon witch hat with a white bow adorning it, the boy wearing black shorts and maroon cape, a maroon top hat with a red bow and rose. In the darkness, their eyes seemed to glint a shade of red. It was their ni
Bleach OC: Gingitsune KaenBleach OC: Gingitsune Kaen4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Name: Gingitsune Kaen
Age: 324 (Appears to be in his early-twenties)
Alliance: 5th Division Captain
Appearance: Captain Gingitsune Kaen stands at a very modest 5'10" and weighs about 135 pounds - all of it is toned muscle. This slender form is often taken as a sign of weakness by those who don't know Kaen's capabilities, but his friends and comrades know that a surprising quickness and strength hides within his frame. His brown hair is cut in a style called a "buzz-cut" in the real world, and that small amount of hair is barely visible under a black skull-cap with a red bulls-eye on the front. His light brown eyes are almost the same color as his tan skin, which makes them somewhat disarming should he begin to stare at someone. In both ears are dozens of piercings that Kaen has designed himself, but the skull-cap covers all but the bottom few. The charms that show when his hat is on are mostly ornate silver rings th

Lovino sighed at the sight of the spaniard covered in filthy socks and boxers, his face bearing a puzzled expression while he continued digging the pile of clothes.
¡No puedo haberlas perdido! ¡Tienen que estar aquí, en alguna parte!
Lovino sighed again.
Well, maybe you did lose them, scemo.
Thats not possible!
Antonio jumped out of the basket with a pair of jeans in his hands, jerking the pockets inside out and pouting at the sound of a few coins and fluffs falling from them. They just have to be here, somewhere. I remember putting them som

"Oh my gosh, Loudred you scared me!" She squeaked, fumbling to hide her diary before he spotted it. Loudred noticed her shuffling around with something, he gawked at her as she let out a squeak and tried to block it from his view.
"WHAT are you HIDING?" He shouted suspiciously, Sunflora jumped up letting out a squeal as she sat down on the mysterious object she was so intent on not letting him see. "Hiding?

As arithmetic has always shown.
But it's this that's made me wholly see
A formula before unknown.
Thus I struggle sorely to impute
Any form of logic to this love.
I cannot manage to compute
What this racing heart's indicative of.
To my dismay, I cannot derive,
Any sense to this new affection.
But it's this very confusion that keeps me alive,
Though I desperately fear a certain rejection.
By parenthesis, we're set apart,
Such a hopeless equation I long to pursue.
But I hope someday to hold your heart,
And I vow with conviction I'll factor through.
Whole numbers are what I once desired,
In such a sum I yearned to be.
But integers are dull and tired
And this repeating decimal intrigues me.
All I required, I learned not in school,
The only whole number that matters is "2".
I don't care about timeworn theorems and rules-
I want to add with you.

My fingers were numb by the time I got to Catherines house. I had the heater up full blast, angled towards my hands, and it was only starting to help. I pulled my shiny new SUV into the driveway that was already covered in two inches of snow. I loved having four wheel drive. Catherine was already waiting on her front doorstep, and she sprinted up as I parked my car. She held her hat on as she ran with her white scarf trailing out behind her. She yanked open the door, a big goofy grin on her face.
Hey Kitcat! were the only words that escaped my mouth before a snowball hit me square in the face. Aweee Cat, I whined. It went down my shirt! I did a little dance in my seat, pulling on my sweater trying to get the snow to come out the bottom. She did nothing but laugh at me. Hey, its not funny, I just got warm! I protested.

You never mention the word "disorder" in certain company.
That's a defense mechanism, rewriting song lyrics in my head as the uncomfortable silence drags on. Not that it's really silent, ever, in a hospital. Machines whir in the background like insect hives, nurses flit (or stomp, depending on inclination) from bed to bed, and some janitor or orderly inevitably rattles by the room with a bucket of vomit or cart of soiled bedding.
So not quiet, then, but certainly uncomfortable. She avoids my eyes, fingering the roses on her lap. Everything in hospitals is blue-and-white, a sick, sterile periwinkle that I suppose is supposed to be cheery. The sheets leach the red from the roses. I'm blue, anorex-da-ba-di.
Naked, she is a lesson in skeletal anatomy, shrunken skin pulled tight on bones ungirt by flesh. In this half-recline bed, I can see only her beautiful face floating above the covers, a corpse-

Now before you get up in arms about this let me say something first.
At one time I considered reading it and I actually did read it eventually when a friend of mine, who actually is not a friend anymore, suggested I should. Well I did read it. I read a LOT of the pages. Over 1000 or so. I started out with the trolls because "it's not good until you reach them". So I started reading from there.
Edit: As of November 9th I have read the comic from the beginning... yeah still boring.
I can say this... I didn't see what the big deal was. Most of the time the characters would sit in their houses and chat on the computer. Oh every once in awhile something would happen but it wasn't all that interesting. To be honest the only character I liked was Terezi even if she is rather crazy. The comic, to me, was rathe

Do not write love poems.
Forgive yourself for the one morning you didn't kiss him awake while the alarm clock rang.
Let yourself cry when you realise you don't remember the last time he said "I love you".
And again, when you know exactly when you said "I love you" last, and it didn't matter to him anymore.
Do not count days between the last time he saw you naked and the night he told you he hadn't been happy for months.
And don't ask yourself what that last time meant to him.
Delete the songs you know you'll never be able to listen to again.
And his number from your phone.
And the text in which he calls you sweetie, and asks when you'll be home.
Save the emails in which he tells you that you're the most beautiful girl in the world, but promise yourself not to read them for at least ten years. It will still hurt then, but it will hurt less.
Avoid the bus that you took to get to him.
Call your best friend at 3 am just to hear her voice.

Why are you so different?
You're not who you used to be
And why am I so lonely,
When you're right infront of me?
Something isn't right,
I can see it in your eyes
I'm just trying to find
A truth behind the lies
You act like we're so close
But we couldn't be more far apart
And right now I can't handle
Someone playing with my heart
Tell me that I'm dreaming,
Tell me our love's still strong,
Tell me you're not leaving,
Please tell me that I'm wrong
Tell me that everything
Is going to be just fine
Tell me you love me
And you'll always be mine
Constantly, we're fighting
It gets worse everyday
And I don't want to stay
Just to watch you slip away
I only want to make you smile
But I only make you frown
I just want to make you happy
Seems all I do is bring you down
I've never felt so far away from you
And I need you here so bad
But I feel like we've already lost
Everything we ever had
Please tell me that I'm dreaming,
Tell me our love's still true,
Tell me you're not leaving,
I'd give up anythin
a hugA HUGa hug10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A hug is a wonderful gift to share,
A way to show each other that we care;
There is so much a hug is able to do,
When you feel those arms holding you.
A hug is a place to feel safe and warm,
A comfort for a sad heart that is torn;
An expression of the love in our heart,
For ones who we wish, never to be apart.
A hug is a greeting when we meet to say hello,
Or to say goodbye when we have to go;
It can hold us up when life gets us down,
And makes us smile, instead of frown.
A hug can be given for no reason at all,
And given to those, both big and small;
We're never too old to feel the joy it brings,
As it is one of life's most pleasing things.
And for all of this beauty, a hug is free!
It costs nothing, yet means so much to me;
We should all hug another to show we care,
For to feel a warm hug, nothing can compare.
Here's Your Hug from ME to YOU
All for just one reason and that is…
A good day to you!
