but to those whose wrists wore slashes.
Their words lacked a semblance of formality,
but were meant for those with abnormality.
The message was for all those whose pain was immense;
it told them it was time to rise, Rise Against.
Rise Against the injustice and pain.
Defend the memory of the slain.
Stand for those who are helpless.
Always try to be selfless.
Work hard for better futures.
Treat the world's wounds with sutures.
Rise Against their pseudo-perfection.
With music, they gave us direction.
Do not let yourself be tame.
Do not give in to their game.
Fight back, but not with violence,
and do not live in silence.
Rise Against the corrupt regime.
They are not as strong as they seem.
Live only by your moral laws.
Stand up, stand out, embrace your flaws.
Arm-in-arm, we make a wall.
Together, we can stand tall.
Rise Against the fanatic;
those whose beliefs are static.
They fear our success, our progress,
and so it is us they oppress.

"I've got a signal! It's weak, but it's definitely there." Tali said, fretting over her Omni-tool as she and the others who had been with Shepard from the start began their desperate search for him. As they move through the rubble left over from the Reapers attacks, the pulsing on Tali's Omni-tool quickens. "We're getting closer."
Hold on my love, we're coming.
"How the hell did Shepard get back from the Citadel in the first place?" Wrex said after lifting up half of a broken wall off the ground.
"Does it matter?" Tali said frantically, "We just need to find him!"
Liara comes in behind Tali and grabs a hold of her shoulder. "Don't worry Tali, we'll find him."
Suddenly Ashley screams out in the distance. "Everyone! I found him!"

It was quite cool for a midsummer day, but that didn't stop the overbearing sun making its presence known to the countryside below. It wouldn't last much longer however as a large battalion of rain clouds were drifting their way across the country on a gentle summer breeze. Indeed the fields which were now dry would soon be drenched to the root, the soil saturated with water when the heavens opened up. For now though, the creatures living in the fields and the forest were able to enjoy the last few minutes of sunlight.
There was one though that would quite happily welcome the rain with speed, as he took shelter beneath the shade of an oak tree, outside the back gate of a human household. A young black furred wolf cub of three months of age sat impatiently awaiting the impending rainfall, with his sable coat absorbing the heat of the sun. He wasn't sure what he was looking forward to more the rain or the arrival of the black and white husky pup

One by one they quickly sub come to the winter cold and lack of food, they all feel until one remained.
"S-s-s-s-s-so co-co-cold ." the lone canine said as he fell to his knees and crawled until he collapsed into the cold snow.
As he laid there, snow covering him in a white blanket, he heard movement. As he opened his eyes to find the source of the noise he saw a moose coming his way. Thinking he just lost his mind he ignored the creature. When the moose was right next to him it licked his face. With that lick as proof the dog knew that the moose was real.

Lars and Mathieu, a Meister and Weapon team, were sitting at an outside café eating lunch. It seemed like a normal, average day in Death City, but neither of these two teens could of imagined how different today would really be.
"Are you listening to me, Mathieu?" Lars, the Meister of the duo, asked. Lars was a pretty average-looking guy with short brown hair, a tan striped shirt, and plain black sweat pants. He also wore a blue scarf around his neck and his eyes were hazel. "You can't tell me you're not worried about these fights in the slightest!"
"Fights?" Mathieu repeated as he didn't even look at Lars. The Weapon was too busy staring at his handheld console and mashing away at the buttons. Mathieu, unlike his partner, stuck out a lot more than Lars. He had messy black hair with red streaks and his eyes were a light blue. His clothes consisted of a plain white shirt under an open black jacket and he wore blue jeans over his legs. For some unknown reason a white band aid was dr

The larger dragon was rather sleepy after gulping down the inhabitants of his prey's village and decided to gently and slowly taste and roll and rub at the dragon inside his massive maw. The larger dragon slowly closed his eyes as he slipped his tongue in between the smaller dragon's legs and gently smacked his lips repeatedly and salivated even more as he murred as he took in his prey's flavor.A Dragon's Toy10 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

It was the middle of a perfectly normal afternoon in the town of Namimori. Or, to be more precise, in a small Chinese restaurant located in downtown Namimori. Seated in this cozy place were four friends…comrades…a Famiglia. The two currently arguing were Ryohei Sasagawa, a tough-looking brown bear with gray hair and a Band-Aid draped over his snout, and Hayato Gokudera, an Akita Inu who also sported a head of gray hair. The bear was dressed in a plain tan shirt with red pants while the canine wore a thin white jacket over a purple shirt and a pair of dark blue jeans.
"Gokudera! Onii-san! Please don't fight." asked a cowardly-looking lion sitting next to Gokudera; he was Tsunayoshi Sawada and the 10th boss of the Vongola Famiglia. Tsuna had brown and very spiky hair and was currently dressed in an orange and white hoodi

Goodra lied curled up on her bed, shivering as the night dragged on. Why? Not the cold, but anxiety. She was afraid of disappointing Lola and Carter after all they'd done to get her into the Serperior's Guild. She had to prove that she could live like they do. Talk like they do.
She gulped nervously. She never was very good with talking to Pokemon. Lola was an exception, but that was different. Then, she felt like a mother tending to her child. Now...
Goodra shivered again, and took a deep breath. She also had an appetite. Everyone called it 'the instinct'. The way they talked, it sounded like a disease.
She gasped. She wasn't sick, was she? They would probably kick her out if she were sick! Goodra sat up, and looked down to the side of her bed where a bowl of berries and a separate bowl of water sat; no doubt a joke by some smug guild member. Goodra opened her mouth, putting a finger in her cheek and stretching it as

In his right hand is a cane, in his left hand is a black suitcase, and on his left shoulder is a raven. Everyone continues to stare at him in silence for what seems like hours. Finally, Bubblegum is the first to speak.
"Who who are you?" she asks.
"Oh, of course," the figure says, walking into the room, his feet making a "click" sound with every step he takes. "Allow me to introduce myself. I am Dr. Ravenwood, and I am very well known for my cures for the freezer burn flu, the lumps, and much more; it is a pleasure to meet you princess," he says, bowing down and taking his hat off.

I had spent all the time researching Slender, from "fact" to fiction, or fan made information. Some facts I already knew, such as stretching and growing his limbs. I also already knew the fact he had a thing for kidnapping children. The most obvious fact was that Slender man, whatever he was, wasn't human.

He could also make humans around him feel sick and uneasy, teleport and many other things. It was also mentioned that he can appear invisible to those he doesn't want to see him, but will usually turn up on video tapes and camera film. All of this stuff I easily believed, that is if I actually believed in Slender man.

The Gokai-Oh wastes no time in attacking it's new enemy.
The ship manages to dodge a swipe from the Gokai-Oh's sword, as it begins to dismantle itself.
"Is it..." Red asks. "...Transforming?"
The ship dismantles itself, as the backward engines transform into hands; the main body modifying into a more humanoid shape. The wings become legs while the front windshield transforms into a somewhat human face, more in the fashion of a mask with a visor. The parts mesh together until a final mech is the result. The mech somewhat resembles an actual humanoid Sentai.

The scene transitions to an odd-looking room filled with computers. (If one squints hard enough, they'd make out screenshots of the mechs of other Super Sentai. Shinkenger and Bioman most notable) At the center sits a robotic-looking humanoid. The humanoid mans a console full of flashing buttons.

Even the other Titans were annoyed of her. She felt unwanted as of lately. So she decided to leave and perhaps hope for the best.
She looked at the moon, sighed, and levitated off the ground. She took off to the city, searching for a new place to stay, then suddenly a thought struck her. She might be found easily... maybe it's better off if she went somewhere else. Perhaps a place where her friends do not know.
Robin looked at the door, where Starfire had once stood. He felt bad. He hated himself for yelling at her. He knew that the poor alien only wanted to help. He knew that she didn't want to talk to him. So he decided to talk to her once the morning came.
He turned off the lights. Hopefully she'll forgive me, he thought. But he was unaware of his best friend's departure at that
