The novice still sat on the bed, handheld on his propped up knees, eyes fixed to the two screens and whatever was going on there. He didn't even as much as flinch when the door slammed shut behind Shaun. His eyes flickered up at the historian for a second before returning to the screen.
"What?" he asked coldly and Shaun was able to hear how annoyed and frustrated he was and disappointed.
Shaun sighed, walking up to him, sitting on the edge of his bed. Desmond was leaning against the wall on the opposite side of the bed, so there still was plenty of space between them no, too much space.
"The girls were worried because you didn't come back with me before "
"So only them?" the novice whispered, the clicking of the buttons subsiding for a moment before returning apparently twice as loud, frustration being let out on them, "Guessed so "

Sheogorath of service the in myself find.
I first tried Hermaeus Mora, and attempted to choose him as my leader. This
was made difficult, though, because of what he demanded. He demanded a black
soul gem of every race in Tamriel. Every Tamrielic race! I was most
debrutsid by this request, mostly because he only gave me nine black soul
gems. When I asked him why he didn't want Sload, Snow Elf, or Dwarven souls,
he replied using words that I think made perfect sense at the time (two
o'clock), but make any don't now.
Not only was that request wrapped up in layers upon layers of onion skin and
swaddling clothes, Hermaeus Mora was also quite boring to talk to. About as
fun as a priestess of Kynareth.
Second, I tried Peryite. Needful to say, I was shocked and electrocuted to
find that he was even less fun than Hermaeus Mora! One would think that a

"Hey, Miyako! Take a look at this!" Daisuke called from the recently unearthed temple in the side of Mt. Fuji.
"What is it?" Miyako quickly jogged over to where Daisuke was carefully lifting out a sheathed sword. The rest of the excavators on the project all gathered around to look.
"I found it in the flooring under the statue. It's in marvelous condition." Daisuke delicately looked over the sheath. "If this site hadn't been buried under fifty feet of tephra and hadn't been carbon dated to more than a thousand years ago, I would have wagered this sword was only fifty at the most."
"It could have been put there long after the temple was built," Misaki, one of the other excavators, pointed out.
"Grow a brain, Misaki, the eruption that buried this temple was in 1701, so at the absolute minimum the sword is 743 years old," Miyako snapped her ears flattening against the sides of her head.
"Well, let's get this sheath off to the lab so we know for cert

Jack had won a strange looking Shen Gon Wu recently against the Dragon of Water, and he had no clue as of what it did. It was in the shape of Wuyas puzzle box, only the top was the shape of a pyramid.
I'll figure it out later, right now I have to go fix my Jack-Bots. He took the wu and went down to his evil lair. Once down there, he tossed the wu onto his chair, and started to work on his broken Jack-bots. He

I've wrestled with an opening to this piece for the last week, and I've finally decided to just go ahead and lay it all out for those who wish to make use of it.
Knowledge is power, and knowledge of climate-change science is serious lacking for a lot of reasons. Those reasons, however, are NOT what the True Believers in 'man-made' global warming would have you believe.
A lot of people on this site believe that things are not as dire as the heavily politicized IPCC and those governments which back it, would have us believe. Most of you do not really have the time to find the information you need to counter the often scientifically illiterate responses you get from those who would blame the human race, and more specifically the Right / Conservatives / Christians / the US / White people, for what we believe is just another phase in half a billion years of climate change.

I am the coal, black and boring.
Set me on fire while I am alive.
Watch me burn,
Watch me die.
She is the diamond, shiny and attention-grabbing.
Lay your greedy hands on the whore.
She's there for the looks and money,
No real work,
She receives the perks.
We both wanted him,
But I bit my tongue.
What a fool I would be to ask for his heart.
He sees me as a footrest,
Only here for support and only when he needs it,
The demand for me is limited.
He lusts for her seductive nature,
Her glare blinding his eyes,
She's tearing him apart with her sharp edges,
It kills me to witness.
"I can't hurt you.
"But she is my support,
"She is but a coal,
weak and pitiful.
You want that?
The spineless coward?
She's thirsty for your heartbreak,
but my fingers are gentle,
let me hold you."
His situation is himself.
I love him more than I could scream,
But I maintain my silence,
I suffer in the dark.
I see his sorrow and

So everybody has to go along, comrade

To the peace serves the grey uniform

And its holy honor

Chapter 37: Night Terrors.
The Qunari mess with the delegates had been dealt with and it made Anders sick to see Thera handling the situation better then the man running the entire city. Honestly, they should just make her the Viscount so she can run the city, then she could get rid of Meredith. Anders looked at the sleeping bodies in his clinic. He let out a deep and heavy sigh. He was also right about Thera and their argument about whether or not throwing one's life away for a cause was worth it. Though she had been acting like nothing had happened, he could see it in her eyes, and heard it in her voice. Everything she had been doing had been empty. It was driving him and Justice mad. Silence would be better than the false words she would speak that sound loving. Maker, they would even let her pummel them if it meant things would go back to normal.
You need to talk to her.
About what? I am not even fully sure I know why she is mad at me.

Oh Germany in high esteem
Text by Ludwig Bauer and melody by Henry Hugo Pierson in 1859
Oh Germany in high esteem,
you sacred land of loyality,
always lights your fame´s shine,
in east and west anew!
You stand firm as thy mountains,
against the force of the enemy and deception,
and like the eagle's flight from the nest
your spirit will fly.
Hold out! Hold out!
Let waft up the banner!
Show him, show the enemy,
that we stand together faithfully!
He dares to test our old strength,
when the battle-cry rages against us!
| : Hold out in the roaring storm! : |
Remember your fathers!
Remember the great age.
As Germany's good knight´s sword,
was victorious in every battle!
These are the old swords still,
this is the german heart.
You´ll never bring us back to the yoke,
we´ll stand firmly like iron!
Hold out! Hold out!
Let waft up the banner!
Show proudly, show the world
that we stand together faithfully.
That old german strength will be proved,
no matter if the peace shines,

"Who are you?!" I screamed once more. I cocked the gun and it was ready for fire. The man just stared at me, his blue eyes piercing me. I noticed something as his gaze near paralyzed me: his eyes were bright ocean blue, except for one streak on his right eye that was light green like mine. My eyes are light green all over, except for one streak of neon blue on my left eye. I grabbed my necklace. It always comforts me in sticky situations. It reminds me who I am, and lets me know that my past will be uncovered somehow. Then the man finally spoke.
"Please, put the gun down. I'm not a splicer or anything, just lower your weapon, please."
"Why should I?!" I yelled at him.
"Look, I'll put mine down." He placed his pistol on the floor next to him and then slowly put his hands in the air. That's when I caught another detail. On his wrists were tattoos, like chains, across them. On each hand there were three small black circles that looked like links in the chain, and they were all connected.

The story of a young witch
My name is Melina Blackeye. I live in a tower in the middle of nothing. Where is that nothing, you may ask. Well, it's in the land of Iroma kingdoms. The three kingdoms in war. I live next to the battlefield and they bring me wounded knights and brave people.
I am also a witch. I was born from a mother-witch, but my father was just a knight, serving in one of the kingdoms Karalom.
Karalom isn't the biggest kingdom, but it is known for its really good farmers and farmlands.
I live alone. My mother was slain by kingdom Iomus' knights, because, well, she was a witch. Iomus people don't like magic at all, they use only their weapons and even their bare hands.
They know about me, but now they are too busy planning their attacks.
Actually, I don't worry about that.
I am still young. I am 24 years old, but I'm still studying magic. I'm not even in a hurry, because I have about 200 years left to live. Maybe longer, I don't know.

Alliance: 9th Division Captain
Appearance: Captain Kuchigane’s tale is an ancient one, having been born over two millennia ago and spending the majority of her long, storied life as a member of the Gotei 13 and its military forces. She is a staple of the Seireitei—as fundamental and irreplaceable as the stones on which it is built. As such, her beginnings are well-known, written into the annals of history and studied by many promising young Shinigami in the Shinō Academy, an institution which falls under her Division’s jurisdiction. They see in her a tale of someone who clawed their way from the bottom through hard work and strict discipline, and use her as an inspiration for their own trials.

Summery: Faced with a fate worse then death one Blood Elf is determined to face his end with dignity, but what twists does fate have in store for him?
Important Notes: There are some things in this that relate to guild developed lore which has been developed over the years. These things aren't meant to change official lore, simply to fill in the gaps. Most prominent being shown here would be the Blood Elven lifespan. High Elves live only until they're 300, sometimes 350 if they're lucky. Blood Elves however haven't had a chance to tell what their max lifespan is but it's likely the use of Fel energy can lengthen their lifespan considerably. Elves who were young when they became blood elves won't really notice the difference but elders found that it had a youthening effect.
The events detailed in this fic are based around in game RP between my main Jaideng Dawnspark and other players during the WOTLK prelaunch and Death Knight introduction.

All that Alessar wanted, once they returned to Arl Eamon's estate, was to bathe and sleep, wishes that he quietly imparted to Zevran as they entered the palace proper. The assassin left Alistair and Morrigan to fend off questions and walked the elven Warden to his room, giving Anora's handmaiden a venomous glare when the woman tried to object.
"We do not have time for joyous reunions," Erlina protested, her emphasis on the last two words making her meaning clear. Zevran stiffened at the implication, but he bit his tongue and continued to lead Alessar down the corridor, guiding the other elf with a light hand on his shoulder, rather than on his lower back as he might have done before. He'd tried that earlier, and Alessar had flinched away from his touch almost imperceptibly, despite the leather armor he wore.
"He's been tortured," he heard Alistair snap with surprising heat, "and you might
