BBC Sherlock: NightmaresThe moment John woke up, he knew something was wrong. He was a light sleeper, courtesy of Afghanistan, so any sign of danger could instantly jolt him wide awake. And now he clearly sensed that his life was hanging by a thread. However, John decided to be cautious and not to make any unnecessary movements, which might provoke an assault. Instead he just opened his eyes slightly and carefully scanned the room shrouded in darkness. Yes, his instinct didn't fail him. There was someone standing at the door. The stranger was motionless, but John could hear him breathing irregularly, as if he just stopped running and tried to calm down. A shadowy, anonymous silhouette, like a monster from children's nightmares.BBC Sherlock: Nightmares3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
John felt fear rising in his chest, but years of being a soldier helped him to maintain his cool. His mind started racing, desperately trying to figure out what to do. He thought about the gun he kept in a bedside table's drawer, but he doubt he'd be quick enough to grab it before th

And that picture is basically what I imagine when I try to fathom how most fans think of a love triangle involving FerrisWheelshipping.
The Joltik is just to help make some sense of it.
Black and Cheren, even Ingo sometimes, all fall under the same trap. The Jacob Blacks of the usual FerrisWheelshipper's mind. Simply added into the mix to add "drama". Rarely added in order to give the participants of the triangle developement and growth, which should be the only valid reason to have a love triangle in the first place. But hey, this are all shallow twits, to them the concept of depth and detail is like the concept of advanced mathematics to the everyday Joe. Something they try to avoid.
Well, it isn't.
Yet the idea of involving a love triangle with this pairing is most likely the recipe for fail (atleast basing it on the Twilight portrayal of the participants).
First of, there's Mr. Gropius.

Néha csak aludnék, s nem kelnék fel,
Így csendesülne a világ felettem el.
Szívemben sötétség, lelkemben csend,
Ezzel lenne teljes a béke idebent.
Néha a magány keze szorongatja torkom,
S nem úgy érzem hogy én irányítom sorsom.
Itthon vagyok, helyem mégsem lelem,
Csak fekszek itt, mint egy élettelen tetem.
Néha elmélkedem, mi értelme a létnek?
Hogy az emberek valójában miért is élnek.
Miért is kell egy életen át szenvednünk,
Ha nem lehet a miénk akit szeretünk?

This guide is meant to introduce and/or inform you of this threat that is currently attacking storywritting, drawing, Original Character creation (OCs) and fandom/fanfiction in general, not to say Originality itself!
During the course of this guide, you will learn what a Mary Sue is, youll identify one when sighted and, most importantly, you will not create one and hopefully you will help others in the subject, so they dont create Mary Sues too.
I) Mary Sue 101:
-What is a Mary Sue?
Mary Sue is a title given to characters in fanfiction (and sometimes original, professional work) who are simply perfect: They are beautiful, smart, friendly, always willing to help for nothing in exchange even if they can die, powerful, important in one way or other...you get the point (I will explain on emphasis later). These characters are often created in Roleplaying forums/chatrooms or simply as OCs with a storyline

When you got home that night, you told Gilbert that his younger brother wishes him well and for the first time in your life, you saw Gilbert cry. But they were happy tears, tears he couldn't cry because of the pain of missing his brother. You suggested that next time he gets a job in the Kingdom of Hearts to talk to Feli about seeing his brother.
The next morning, the albino gave you a card. Spades. Sighing, you felt saddened by the fact that you wouldn't be able to be close to Ivan once more. You were beginning to wonder if he'd even remember you anyway.
Then an idea snapped in your mind. You were going to talk to the King and Queen, get on their good side and actually try to achieve peace for good. Since you could accidentally be left behind, you knew you could get away easy.
So when you made it to the Kingdom of Spades, you got away from the group easily and wandered into the palace yourself this time. The Jack, Yao stopped you before you could go into th

Bear . Wolf, eagle. Always these beasts could turn the hunter into prey. Hurron knew this, it was a knowledge his father taught him well on his first bleeding of the snow.
Up in the cold you keep these three rulers in mind at all times, especially at the winters end, for wolf is still rabid with winters hunger. Bear awakens from its slumber sharing the same thought as the wolf, and northern eagles, they are always a threat. In time, they learned to wound their prey and watch it bleed to death.

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e

A tél jégvirágos palástjával borította be Sal'arad karácsonyi tűzben égő világát. Mindenki úgy gondolta, ez az évszak csupán pusztulást hoz, a fák lombjukat hullatva mély álomba merülnek, a virágok pedig elhervadnak. Csupán kevés madár maradt hű a fészkéhez, kik nem menekültek el a tél fagyos lehelete elől. Ám a mágusok másképp gondolták, nekik ez az évszak hozta el a teremtés lehetőségét. Tornyukon, amely fagyos lándzsaként emelkedett ki a tájból, messziről ragyogtak a zúzmarából készített virágalakzatok, melyeket a mágusok hoztak létre, hogy örömet szerezzenek a falusiaknak karácsonykor.

Awkward on a metal wire mesh chair
In a restaurant's outdoor section,
I must have been forgotten.
When the café closed the night before
There were no nameless patrons inside
Needing a polite request to leave,
And the waiter, absentminded, locked up,
Leaving me alone to the quieting night.
My rainy city dawn wakes me slowly,
Cold and glistening with dew.
"Where is the crème brûlée I ordered?"
I demand sleepily to the empty gray streets.
Instead I receive crystal droplets
Rolling off the red and white awning above me.
An old man wanders by on cobblestone,
Entertaining himself with philosophical conversation
With the memory of his deceased wife by his side.
He stops by the cracked window
Of an abandoned and forgotten antique store,
And inquires of the dust through the glass
How business has been lately.
Two stories up, mutterings of the old man
Have awakened a newlywed couple
Shivering from the chill of the window
Accidentally left open, forgotten in last night's pas

Hitte, most végre megérti célját.
És majd eléri, ha itt lesz az ideje.
Ám még is rettegve küzdötte tovább magát.
A szépség hozta a tavaszt és a kedvet,
Kacagva szárnyalt a nyomorult körül,
Nem figyelve semmire önnönmagán kívül,
Így végül ostobasága kerekedett fölül.
Mert a szépség folyton meghal a télben,
A csúf pedig örökké megmarad,
Hiába bármilyen beszéd vagy kívánság,
Az átkozott seb ismét felszakad.
A csúf röhög, mint aki jól tette dolgát,
És halhatatlan léte most végre felragyog,
És a szép kínok között ébred majd fel egyszer
Ott, ahol léteznek most is angyalok.
És nekünk már csak a vágyakozás marad,

Mersz-e, ha kioldom fehér szárnyaim,

Vagy inkább bőrömbe rajzolsz

Hol zizegve szökkennek az árnyak,
Énekelsz-e nekem? Velem?

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.

The happiest story about neglect everIt was a warm summer night in Vegas as little Ekard Eden walked along the dark sidewalk to reach his destination. His older brother and caretaker had been gone for quite sometime. Where he was, nobody could really say. He only said he had "something important to take care of", and left. Sadly enough, Ekard hadn't eaten in a few days, which couldn't be too healthy for a five-year-old. Upon reaching the home of one of his friends, he knocked on the door as hard as he could, being so small and weak. A woman answered the door, a fox, more specifically, and looked at Ekard in bewilderment. Ekard was thinner than she had remembered, and was only wearing a set of dark-blue footed pajamas that had been stained from several nights of bed wetting. He emitted a rancid, foul odor from a lack of bathing.The happiest story about neglect ever3 years ago in Settings More Like This

And so are you
When you kiss me
I feel brand new
People might stare
They might get mad
But they can't understand
Nothing they never had
My heartbeat flutters
My brain is a mess
I love you more everyday
Not ever less
I want to protect you
I want you to smile
I want you to know
You're not a trial
Without a doubt
You're my mate and soul
And without you
I might lose control
Boys want to fix me
Girls only sigh
But when I look at you
I cannot see why
They say we're the same,
But we're nothing alike
They label us weirdo's,
Ugly, and dyke
But there's a secret
They do not know
That our romance

Who makes me laugh

Father's DayFather's Day3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It had been an exhausting and emotional week for Phineas. The Monday announcement of the school's yearly Father's Day Activities had made him just as excited as the years before; he and Ferb would both take turns entering one obstacle race and competition after another with their father. It had been something Principal Beauregard came up with for the entire high school. And every year, the games were more and more interesting.
As usual, Phineas was looking forward to that coming weekend.
At least until the new kid from the eleventh grade spoke up.
"Those Father's Day games are for dads and their kids; not dads and their stepkids."
At first, Phineas had shrugged it off, as usual. He had known Lawrence for so long now, he had never considered him as his stepfather, but merely as his father. And Ferb had acted the same way with Linda being his mother.
But the more that teenager had insisted it, and in a very rude manner, the more it began to bother Phineas, as well a
