Hipshot!Hey there, sparrows! ♥
Long time no see! Okay, okay, not terribly long. :> We're well into Julyhow is everyone's summer coming along? What sort of things have you been up to so far? I hope you're all having a great time and enjoying the sun. Thus far, my summer has been fantasticlots of swimming, fishing, hiking, motorcycle riding, starry nights and watermelon, haha.
I'm making this journal for those of you who have followed my horror story 'Hipshot' (and anyone who'd like to start following it). After putting the project on hold for several months, I have revised the first four parts (and oh man, what an improvement, seriously), and updated them today, in preparation for the release of the fourth part of the story tomorrow evening. If you've read Hipshot before and plan on reading the 4th section, I think you'll enjoy it much better if you re-read the story beforehand, now that it's been revised, and refresh it in your memory. Check back tomorrow
I'm her girlfriendI'm her girlfriend. Is it really that difficult of a concept to understand?I'm her girlfriend3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
A couple of weeks ago I came out to my parents, letting them know that I liked girls more than I liked guys. They were fine with it but my mom had a hard time understanding. It made me ecstatic, I was terrified that I would be ignored or punished for being who I am but my parents were actually fine with it. For a while I've liked this girl, she's smart, funny, hot as hell, honestly she's one of the most fantastic people I have ever met. Her name (for those of you that don't know) is Jordynne. And she's been my girlfriend since December 20. When I finally worked up the courage to tell my mom about her my mom's first question was.
"Well are you the boy?"
No. No I'm not. I'm a girl. And so is Jordynne. She is not my boyfriend nor am I her's. I am her girlfriend. And she is mine. And it bothers me that as soon as I bring up that I'm dating a girl some people immediately bring up "well which one is the guy?" NEITHER
Hypothetical - chapter 1A/N: This takes place after another story of mine called Experimental. If you haven't already clicked the back button, you might be okay to stick around if you haven't read it, I think the characters basically recap everything from that story you need to know to understand this one. Basically Zim did stupid things and ran into some scary people who tried to kill him but couldn't quite manage it and there was a bit of a kerfuffle.Hypothetical - chapter 12 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
The chupacabra was seven feet tall and dripping mucus. It took a step closer to Dib, snorting a gobbet of snot at him.
Dib backed up. His heart was pounding in his chest.
"I have found you," the chupacabra growled, in a voice like grinding steel. "You have exploited my children and taken my food, and I will suck the brains from your head and tear your carcass to the four winds."
"No, you won't!" Dib said, flinging one arm in a dramatic skyward point. He was sweating a bit, though. He knew his 'secret weapon' wasn't exactly reliable... or good.

AnorexicaThe sign on the wall read, "Welcome to Anorexica." Jane looked at the sign, perplexed. She had never seen this part of Anytown before; she and John and their 2.5 kids had only stayed on the right side of the tracks, with the rich churches and the nice restaurants, the beautiful cinemas and the museums. Jane didn't even know how she had gotten here. She must've made a wrong turn on Main Street.Anorexica10 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The heavyset minority crowd viewed her pale face and slender form with disdain. Jane Doe was definitely in the wrong part of town, where her looks were out of place. She turned and swiftly began to walk back the way she came when a hand grabbed her elbow roughly.

No, really. This was going to be a good day for me. I was going to sneak into Zim's base while he was at skool, take some pictures, steal something incriminating, go home, call the Eyeballs and finally give that little green jerk what he deserves! But no. Of course not. Here I am instead, hiding behind his couch.
Things started off awesome. Well, not that awesome. I woke up this morning with a sore throat and a fever so Dad let me stay home from skool. But then I went back to sleep and woke up a little later with no symptoms. But I still didn't have to go to skool! But Zim did! See? Y'see? So I got all my gear on and grabbed my recording equipment and hauled my butt over here to the base! Getting in was pretty easy. The gnome's sensory field seems to be constantly decaying, a bit faster than Zim can repair it. There's pretty much always a weak spot. And there was one today, so I got into the base and started taking pictures

No matter how hard I try,
I'll always fail in your eyes
Or in someone's eyes
I'm sorry,I couldn't silence my cries
I'm sorry you saw past my disguise
I'm so sorry for shaming you
But can you blame me for blaming you?
So I give up
I give up on trying to please you,
And I give up on lying to please you
You can shake your head in disgust,
But I won't try to appease you
Because I'm done caring how you see me

“After all, rarely do the men who orchestrate wars find themselves holding the instruments. It's those holding the instruments, you see, they go and they die, they die at each others hands, and all their familiars and relations they weep and they cry revenge, and then the whole thing's sunk. Then the whole thing is personal, and if it lasts long enough it is cultural, and then for all the original maestros may wish most dearly to cease the thing it is too late, don't you see.

Private Lanson squirmed, still adjusting to his heavy standard-issue boots, belts, and helm. The drawling voice in the shadow had been going in this vein for a good ten minutes and it hadn't helped him settle into his uniform one bit.

Squad (Former): Squad 5
Rank (Former): Captain
Other Groups: Orbis Signifer
Ambition: To purify and 'save' the Soul Society

Dislikes: The corruption of Soul Society officials, disobedience, weakness.
It could be said that Keiner has been three different people over the course of his life, each with their own distinctive personality. Augustus Herrmann was a liar, and had a frail and weak heart (he was willing to have his whole family killed to escape the wrath of the Reformation when he was human). This ended in his untimely death, and it took many years of loneliness and poverty for his personality to change dramatically.
During his time in Soul Society he went through a period of enlightenment, and over time became a strong minded

Chapter 1: It Begins
They sat in neat formation; evenly spaced around their master as they waited in silence, their faces shadowed by the darkness that surrounded them. It was a spacious room; cavernous ceiling and grand interior only visible via the fragile flickering light that sputtered from the fire, hardly worth calling embers in its deprived state. This dim glow bounced sharply off the congregation's backs; straight and tight; allowing no movement to be made seen. With this near constant lack of activity, the only true sign of life within the space was the neon red spark of his eyes, snapping over each member briefly as though searching for some sign of discontentment; something that would no doubt be crushed upon discovery.
Those eyes ran quickly over the faces a second time before shifting to the darkest side of the room, where the door; huge and solid, was located. They remained fixed on that spot for some time, never blinking and never losing

Children of the sun
In a silent battle
That has only just begun
They start out small and slight
But they turn out big and strong
They rebel against Mother Nature
And try to prove her wrong
You may call them pretty
Yet that's only in their youth
Calling them cute and dainty
That's further from the truth
Mysterious they are
As they lean toward the light
Their arylide petals mocking
Always ready for the fight
No one can understand
Their tough and endless power
No one can expect the fierceness
Of the slight and delicate sunflower

Xenethis is very reserved in personality, though not the extent of Ulquiorra. He tends to keep quiet as a result of fear of his own rage, and the destructive consequences that followed. Examples of this come from his time as a Demented Gillian, which to him seemed like a short blur of hunger and anger, despite it lasting decades. More recently, it comes from the vivid flashbacks of his own death, which cause him to break out into a bloodrage and try to kill anything in his line of vision. As a result, he tends to keep to himself, though he is far from emotionless. For an Arrancar, he i

I went to put her in my team, since I loved Tyranitar and wanted to train it, when I got an idea. I knew that the Poke-Walker was supposed to raise a Pokémon's level by one, and also raise their friendship with your character

Sobbing wildly with his whole face red and blotchy from the tears. He raised his small head and stared at me with huge glistening eyes with a small spark of hope in his face.

From the moment Raz meets Boyd and is thusly greeted with a startled cry of Who are you working for? there are obvious signs about how paranoid the poor guard is. The scribbles behind him on the wall in chalk are webs of seemingly unrelated events and people, all interrelated according to Boyd. You can even listen to him mutter under his breath by standing near him. When you ask him to let you in, he responds Sorry, the Milkman has the key. I am not the Milkman. Im the Guard.
However, the extent of his affliction is only truly obvious when you enter his mental world, aptly named The Milkman Conspiracy. The mental world takes on the shape of a seemingly innocent suburban neighborhoo

Ahead is a collection of a roleplay log between Rueme and xKimikox, detailing the fact that Ayre and Mei's relationship isn't all as perfect as it may seem. The story is set approximately 100 years in the past, just as a war between Elavernis, Alora, and Lumeria has ended. After Elavernis leaders staged a coup against their God to take control of the country, they immediately attacked Alora to try and gain control, but were soon defeated when Lumeria joined in the efforts to fight back and reclaim Ilquinis' country back from these traitors. This roleplay focuses more on the effect this event had on Ayre and Mei, and their relationship as a whole. Roleplay posts are separated by a dash for easier reading between characters.
The Argument - Chapter 1
The meeting in Lumeria was on a brief hiatus, the war room having become too stifled with shouts and yells from one of her leaders and, even more surprising, the God of Summer himself, to even progress effectively. Needless to s
