Merida had brought it back to her a couple of days after their adventure.
Queen Elinor and King Fergus were going to be sitting on their thrones again to talk with the clan-chiefs some more before they sailed home.
But Elinor was afraid if she put the crown on again, she wouldn't be who she was now anymore.
She had carefully put it down before going into the stream to try catching fish to eat. She had been so hungry, even after all the fish Merida had caught for her, but she hadn't wanted to loose the crown. She had felt the tug of the bear on her almost as soon as she changed; to be the bear, the beast, wild and untamable.
She had needed the crown and clothes as a shield against that. But it hadn't been enough. She had lost herself to the bear. She had hurt her own daughter.
It had hurt a lot when she had learned that Merida had done this to her. She had asked herself if she hadn't been a

There once was a farmer and his wife who wished more than anything to have a child. But alas, a child never came to them. Their tiny cottage had a small window which looked out over the most beautiful garden full of the loveliest flowers and vegetables. There was a high wall around it, for this garden belonged to a sorceress known for her power.
One day the wife stood at the window looking out into the witch's garden planted full of the most beautiful lettuces. As she looked, she began to long for the rampion she spied. Days passed and her longing increased, her limbs growing thin and her skin pale. Alarmed, her husband asked, "Dear wife, what is the matter?"
"Ah...I shall die if I cannot have that rapunzel." And her eyes grew distant and dreamed of the garden. Fearful for his wife's life, the farmer resigned himself and stole into the night to b

He tried sighing louder and throwing himself on Double D’s bed, knocking a pillow onto the floor, but still no attention was given. He felt defeated and a bit annoyed so he decided to do what any other teen boy would, when presented with an obstacle of this magnitude. Google random things on his phone.

I look in the mirror reflection,
I hope my true self avoids detection.
I am not who they believe,
I find freedom when they leave.
I see myself with this refinement,
It's all traditional confinement.
Who is she?
That beauty staring at me.
Not who I was meant to be.
This personality and this face,
My family's disgrace.
Honor and poise,
Someone save me from this choice.
I hide behind this façade,
It's a delicate charade.
I see myself as a warrior,
Everyone around sees me as inferior.
Why can't I let my true self shine?
Why must I let this cage confine?
Behind this face I fade.
Who is that girl I see,
Staring straight back at me?
Turned to obscurity.
This sad shallow reflection.

Over the course of the next week, Heavyn learned how to use her mind to its utmost potential while also learning some valuable tips on swordplay and even some of this world's magic (which had some rather interesting results like the time when she accidentally turned herself into a blonde. She still had no idea on how she did that and luckily Arya knew how to fix it). Eragon, Arya, and some of the other elves took turns teaching her what she needed to learn whenever one of them could be spared from their duties. Sora, Riku, and Kairi also learned from the elves on how to block their minds from potential invaders thanks to Heavyn's suggestion.
"After all," she had commented, "it can't hurt!"
As the four of them met (and in some cases fought alongside) some notable names from the series, however, Heavyn noticed an oddity. She had expected young Elva to come and see the new arrivals for herself, yet surprisingly the chil

When you're not a twig.
When you have hips,
An ass, and a chest.
When you can't see your ribs.
When you have a figure.
Things that some people would kill for
But sometimes you don't want it.
Sometimes, you want to weigh 90 pounds
And you want to be a stick
It always comes back to your mind
That isn't sexy.
That isn't attractive.
And the guys that like that,

Eddy's Revenge - Part One [KevEdd]Everyone has that one deep, dark secret. The one they keep hidden deep inside, away from prying, judgmental eyes. Chains lock it in place. Walls go up around it, guarding it, imprisoning it. Kevin had only a second to register that Eddy was in his room, uninvited and sitting on his floor amidst a mess of Kevin's things, before his gaze was drawn to the magazine clutched in the unwanted teen's hands—and just like that, with no prior warning, carefully constructed walls came crashing down. The chains severed. All color drained from Kevin's face as his heart thudded painfully against his ribs, beating out an unsteady rhythm of no. From between Eddy's fingers, glimpses of a scantily clad raven-haired man were visible.Eddy's Revenge - Part One [KevEdd]2 years ago in Romance More Like This

I can't be freed.
Will never fill the need.
I will never succeed,
Making them leave me be.
I'm aware of them.
I know they're not real.
But something about them makes me feel.
But all they do is reopen the wound that wont heal.
They deprived all but fear,
Order, and balance.
These impulses float around in silence.
My actions are their voice.
I don't have a choice.
I fear I'm going insane.
The same routine every day,
Has caused my life to seem like a cliche.
They've taken everything from me.
What's left is an empty shell,
Living on what I used to be.
I close my eyes in ignorance.
And let this slip by.
I guess you can call me shy.
I'll keep my composure,
And live my life like nothing's making me lie.
Living like nothing's happening on the inside.
