Character Analysis: The MinotaurCharacter Analysis: The Minotaur2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Tekkonkinkreet is a controversial anime movie with many different themes, characters and settings. Based on the manga 'Black and White' by Taiyo Matsumoto, the story follows the exploits of two orphaned delinquents as they fight other delinquents, Yakuza gangs and alien assassins to protect their home, Treasure Town, as well as dealing with their own emotional battles and conflicts. The entire movie is a masterpiece of animation, with visually unique designs, enthralling music and well-developed characters, which deserves far more credit than it receives. However in my opinion the most significant and fascinating aspect of this movie is through a character known only as the 'Minotaur'. A creature with no certain origins, no obvious motives and an enigmatic presence which none can really explain, the Minotaur helps take the story of Tekkonkinkreet to new levels of deep thought and personal discovery that may well have been unreachable otherwise. In this analysis, I'm

Garrus exited the elevator on the Combat Information Center, his guns and a bag slung over his back. He had gone down to the main battery and gathered the lone things he had brought with him on the ship before heading up to the CIC, ready to exit the ship for what Garrus thought was for good. As he walked past Kelly she attempted to say hello, but his blatant ignorance to her presence caused her to quiet herself as he walked past. No one else even bothered to try and greet him as he walked past.
He had gotten violent with Shepard, and he didn't really know if it was the right thing to do. She had started it, but the look she had given him when he had her pushed up against the wall was confusing to him. He knew what humans looked like when they were scared (he had killed enough rotten humans on Omega during his time as Archangel), but Shepard hadn't just been scared... there was another emotion he could see, and it wasn't one Garrus had seen come from her before. Whatever it was,
Chapter 17 of Booth+BrennanChapter 17 of Booth+Brennan3 years ago in Drama More Like This
It turned out that Angela and Hodgins had pre-planned and paid for a big reception so Booth and Brennan had a hard time saying they wouldn't go especially when Angela started begging.
At the reception Jared hit on Cam and Rebecca as they were the only single woman there but didn't get very far with either of them. Cam was not interested based on the fact that she was friends with Booth and dating his brother probably wouldn't thrill him and Rebecca just said that she had already had enough experience dating Booth's.
Once Booth and Brennan had been at the party for what they believed was long enough they decided they could leave but Angela would have none of it. Angela did however let Russ and Amy go home to put Emma and Hayley to bed.
Joe, Sweets and Max were having a blast though. Sweets had gotten slightly drunk and Joe had decided to follow suit since even though he was everybody's boss he wasn't on duty now and he needed to loosen up anyway.

The Problem with Dreams
A/N: SPOILER ALERT! Don't read this if you haven't seen the movie! This is my first Inception fanfic, but I'm open to all comments, good or bad. I used many quotes from the movie (artistic license), just FYI. The more constructive criticism I get, the more I can improve on my stories. This one is an Ari/Cobb pairing, go ahead and argue all you want! I read some of Voldemort's Spawn' and Ginger Locks' stories and they have converted me to A/C. I might continue with more chapters I'm writing this with each chapter having a definitive ending, but leaving it open at the same time Kinda like Inception! But it depends on what kind of reviews I get. Enjoy.

Ayan Jericho Zeril spurred his horse onward, noticing how the red eye in the distance became a fiery serpent slithering across the fields before him... No, his land, his home. As Ayan Jericho came within range, gray-blue eyes blinked, the mind refusing to acknowledge the fact that his estate was on fire when the an image of a woman's face came into view.
"Irenia!" He leapt off his horse and dashed to the front door. A hand grasped the knob, only to withdraw in haste as excessive heat tingled the nerves. Fear clawed at his mind, and he started to slam his fists into the wood.
Upon hearing no answer, Ayan Jericho clenched his jaw as he started to kick the doors open. After two, three tries, the door ruptured. Hot air carressed his face; bright hands tried to touch him, but he evaded the burning digit

You say I love you and the other struggles to say it back.
You hug them always but they never hug you.
You smile and they don't smile.
You love romance but the absolutly hate it.
You always say 'I wish, don't you?' and they say 'Keep wishing.'
You cry in class and they never seem to notice.

They always wish on the inside, even for the impossible.
They also cry secretly.

Losing friends, family and love....
Too many times I let a wandering angel into my care.....

They are the wandering devils
And I am too niave to relialize it...
I shiver in the cold that strikes me as I move forward...
I'm moving forward, breakig the shatters of glass as I move along..
I survive on my own
As I live alone
Too young to know or feel
Hiding within shadows

Something old was playing on the sound system. Something really old. Kaidan looked up from his drink and over to the stage where the musicians played. The front woman was blonde and hugged the microphone, pressing it to her lips like the romance would make all the difference. She had a low voice that slanted sweetly in all of the right places. He turned completely in his seat to give his full attention to the stage.

Amelia figured it wouldn't be a big deal, but when she arrived there she realized she was wrong.
Her life was originally on that ship. As she walked through its ruins, she remembered everything.
She remembered seeing Kaidan, talking to him. What a sweet man he was. She remembered how good he was to her regardless of any situation. She remembered how they talked about everything, never having any issues or quarrels whatsoever. Her heart suddenly ached for him now.
Her eyes filled with tears. She cried under her helmet, unable to wipe her face.

You could smell it, the putrid smell of that damn dog. I could hear him chasing me. Crashing through the scrub while I flew through the treetops on silent feet. Leaping from one branch to another. My breath in low pants in exertion of trying to outrun the dog that wanted me dead. Then, my foot caught on a branch and I fell. Down, down, down to the hard ground and the waiting claws of the werewolf. As I fell I pulled out my dagger that was strapped to my leg and threw it at the oncoming werewolf. It hit him square in the chest and he keeled over.
With a soft thump I landed on the forest floor and ran over to the wolf’s body. Just as I reached it, it burst into flames, meaning that it was well and truly dead. Satisfied, I tuned away and gave a shrill whistle. Almost instantly, Dawn came running out from under a clump of bushes, my bag and leather jacket clamped in her mouth. I bent down and gently removed them from her jaws, and then throwing on my jacket I

UntitledSoftly the waves lapped at the shore as Dusk stared out to the horizon, clutching onto her wolf pup Dawn. Tears rolling down her face as her mother's and sister's ashes were scattered onto the wind. She was alone now. All alone, except for Dawn. Dawn would keep Dusk company. With a sigh and a final glance out to sea Dusk placed Dawn down and pulled up her hood. She then turned and walked away, with Dawn at her heels. As she walked, Dusk slowly started to lock her emotions and memories into a box. All of her grief and sadness, her love, compassion and happiness were placed in the box and sealed away. All that was left was her burning desire for revenge. Revenge on the evil creatures that took away her mother and sister. And with that thought consuming her, Dusk and Dawn vanished into the shadows.Untitled1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

as I runaway and hide.
I cant stand looking in the mirror.
All I see is a shattered heart,
and a broken soul.
My essences has been extinguished,
and joy can't seem to be found.
Those things I thought were important,
have abandoned me in my own personal hell.
I don't believe I can repent,
or be saved at this point.
Even if I wanted to it's hopeless.
Life seems so hopeless,
but I know it's not.
Maybe it's me feeling sorry for myself,
or my depression,
but none of my life feels in place,
Therefore I want to give up.
Forget all of the pain and loneliness.
Just leave it all behind,
and find out what that beautiful darkness,
holds for me.
Not much i'm guessing.

There is definitely much to be considered.
