Ode to Rise AgainstThe band spoke not to the masses,Ode to Rise Against3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
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.
In time, my suffer

Nominiamo con le orecchie,
mangiamo con gli occhi e
ascoltiamo con il naso.
Tutto ciò scrivendo con la sinistra.
Vediamo che succede,
magari il mondo girerà al contrario
ed i gamberi cammineranno dritti.
Chissà che succede,
il mondo nello specchio vivrà e osserverà
il nostro, sorpreso.
E allora capiremo,

Spidermom, as Vriska knew her, was reveling to her what she would have to do to keep her lusus alive. She would have to kill other trolls and feed them to Spidermom. "But mom, I... I don't understand!" She squeaked. "Isn't that.. Murder?" Spidermom screeched in anger at the young troll, making Vriska wince. "Ok, mom... I'll go get you some.."

Little Terezi was lying in her hive, playing with some scalemates. "Hehehe, you guys are adorable!" she looked down at them, smiling. She loved her little dragon friends, anything dragon related, actually. She was quite alone, since she was a little troll and hadn't made any friends yet. She glanced through the window at what looked like another young troll approaching. "Can you see that, Senator?" she asked a yellow scalemate. "Who is she?"

The voice was so quiet that GLaDOS almost didn’t hear it at first. She jerked her optic away from the sensor readings to stare at the test chamber. The sheet she’d dropped over her test subject was moving, and, hardly daring to believe it, she breathed, “Chell?”
As the human shoved the sheet off, GLaDOS could see she was laughing. Waves of emotion crashed over her, threatening to overwhelm her systems. She was relieved and furious and giddy all at the same time.
“You fell for it,” the test subject said as she stood up, shaking with laughter. “I can’t believe that actually worked. ‘I’ll even bake a cake for you!’” she mimicked. “It was all I could do to keep from laughing.”
“You…how did you do it?” GLaDOS managed. Despite her fury, she couldn’t help but be impressed with the girl. Scientific curiosity was getting the

as I unscrewed the lid of your urn,
and ran my fingers through your ashes.
Your depression, your soul dust.
I felt nothing other than
an ocean roiling beneath my ribs,
and an urge to hold the brass ossuary,
and rock you back and forth
like you did for me when I was young.
At the funeral, my uncle announced
that you despised religion.
But he left out the part
where you did believe in a God,
just that he was always punishing you.
“There was nothing you could have done”
said the other uncle.
I think of all those spent wishes,
the birthday candles extinguished for gifts,
the meteor showers I wasted on love,
the prayers offered from family friends
that are now given a little too late.
This year, I turn 22 years old.
But when I blow out the candles,
my wish won’t matter.
None of them did.

A thick white fog filled the air as the forest grew humid and the sun barely shown through the white puffy clouds overhead. Carter stirred, his body stiff, and grunted as he sat up.
"Ugh... at least the rain stopped... right Lola?" He smirked, but stopped when he heard nothing. He rubbed his eyes, and as they blinked open Lola was nowhere to be seen. Carter stood quickly, but grunted with pain and fell back to his knees. He steadied himself with a hand, and slowly stood.
"Lola!" He called out. "Where are you?!" He continued, a frantic worry in his voice. He couldn't believe he left Lola unguarded last night. What if something happened to her? Carter stumbled out of the cave, wheezing from his beaten body, and fell to a knee again as he began to tear up. "Lola..."
"She's gone. But with my help, you can save her." Carter stood quickly and turned to see a gardevoir leaning against the wall beside the cave.

Danny the cyndaquil hurried down the cracked mountain path, the heavy rain and fog blinding him as he tried his best not to fall into one of the fissures or crevices along the craggy dirt and stone. He shivered, the freezing rain making his breath come out in white puffs. His foot caught in a crack, and he gasped as a stab of pain shut up his leg and forced him to the ground. Danny landed on his face, tears in his eyes, and he glanced back to see his ankle swollen.
Great. First he gets lost in Craggy Coast, next he almost joins his supplies at the bottom of a razor sharp jagged pit, and now he sprained his ankle.
Danny tried to stand, leaning against a small boulder, and grunted as he put weight on his leg. He had to get back to town. Danny limped as best he could, spots in his eyes from pain, and sighed with relief when he saw a rock tunnel where he could escape the rain.

Televisions throughout the world turned on as the first event of its kind was getting started. Viewers across the world were introduced to a small newsroom with a single desk and monitors all around it. Sitting at the desk was a gray furred wolf in a brown trench coat, white shirt, black pants and a brown fedora.
"Hello, and this is Odin Ashcroft." The wolf started. "And I'll be your commentator for today's first ever Shrinking Games. Athletes from across the multiverse are arriving as we speak and preparing for the historic event all hoping to go home a victory. At the very least they'll all be able to go home much cheaper since postage goes off weight." Odin paused for a moment. "Now then, we're going to go live to our field reporter who is already at the games who will try to get you an exclusive interview with one of the athletes."

There were well over a dozen cookies total, each meticulously made from scratch and augmented with a happy sprinkle of gooey chocolate chips. Sight and smell coalesced into a sudden and mouthwatering compulsion; and, succumbing to temptation, Dawn gingerly plucked the largest of the specimens from the tray.
She took a moment to admire her work – but only a moment. Then she leaned forward, gently pressing her teeth against the cookie’s edge. She didn’t fully bite down, applying just enough pressure to lightly crack the surface. But her snack was crafty, oozing a taunting layer of chocolate over her tongue – urging her to take it further.
She obliged, finally taking a bite – not out of spite, but out of necessit

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
Il Giorno In Cui Le Stelle Smetteranno Di BrillareIl professore tirò fuori dalla tasca della giacca, quella alta vicino al cuore un vecchio pacchetto martoriato di sigarette tedesche. Diavolo, non sapevo che ce le avesse ancora. Iniziò a rigirarselo tra le mani, nervoso, sbuffando come una teiera, mentre leggeva i miei appunti sull'esperimento. Avevano ancora la svastica stampata sul pacchetto, quindi dovevano avere parecchi anni, probabilmente di quando era stato soldato durante la seconda guerra mondiale e si era trovato in Germania alla vittoria della guerra.Il Giorno In Cui Le Stelle Smetteranno Di Brillare4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"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.
A Dragon's ToyHot breath washed over the small dragon as he looked at the back of his predator's pulsating throat as he laid on the massive tongue. 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 Toy1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

"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.

The Most Memorable Christmas YetAnna ducked low behind the bushes, keeping her head down. Ever so carefully she reached up one hand, parting the leaves to peek out at the house’s front door. It took her several tense seconds to ensure the coast was clear. Only then did she open her cupped fist to address the creature curled within it.The Most Memorable Christmas Yet7 months ago in Profiles More Like This
That creature was me. Admittedly, there wasn’t much to being a human: we were small and fragile, easily (and often) overlooked. On Anna’s world we were something of vermin. Some people swatted us and chased us out like rats. Others ate us like exotic delicacies. No one wanted us around.
But I had found a home with a kind-hearted family – more specifically, with my girlfriend Liz’s family. And when it came to her niece Anna, there was a lot more going for her. She had all the grace and poise of a snow leopard, boasting a pale coat of spotted fur and even a lithe tail; but she also had the shape of a human woman and all the beauty that came with it.

There was a poll posted on Facebook, it was simple, all you had to do was click one answer or the other.
You only had two choices.
The question was: "Where do you think you're headed?"
The answer choices were: Heaven, and Hell.
A lot of people picked Heaven and there were people who voted Hell.
This made me sad to know that these people are condemning themselves.
When you say you're going to Hell, you're accepting something that isn't true!
If God set a Satanist free, If God sent his only son to die for us (even when we did not and still don't deserve it), and If God spoke into the darkness and created the light...
Then NOTHING is impossible for him!
The word impossible is a fallacy that hides the truth: I'm Possible!
Don't condemn yourself.
Doesn't matter what you did, God will still forgive you and let you into his kingdom,
you just have to stop putting yourself down all the time
