He considered it very carfully. Seriously weighing its meaning in his young mind. We sat there on the bench together in silence as the rest of the world went about its business. A short moment passed for me, a long child's moment passed for him. Finally, he looked up, and with the gravity of a judge of human kind he gave his answer.
"Love is a hug," he said simply.
I smiled, and hugged him tightly to me. An Angel could have not given me a better answer.

Of the city in the sky.
Fate had mete out,
A young girl who had proved her worth,
To become a great Paladin one day.
And in a land far away,
In a nation not his own,
Battled a tested Warrior of rank,
Fought against nations of power and doom,
At the Lord Marshal's command,
For their relics were unbound.
And the young Paladin watched,
The raid parties come and go,
Hoping one day she could call one her own.
In the land of Lakia,
Of the city in the sky.
The young Paladin closed her eyes,
Many monsters had fallen to her blade,
In the harsh wind-bit lands of Amarkand,
The strongest of Club Dread,
Who beat her again and again,
Would not fall.
A tear stung her eye,
As she turned to her guild and cried,
"Help me please! Assistance I need,
Forgive my weakness I beg you please.
Change must be had and I am not strong enough to bring it alone,
The dread ones must fall!"

i get goosebumps from the thought
of the letters that spell "forever"
for once, i'm pretty sure i'm not scared
because if "forever" means a yard and a dog
four cars, two jobs, three rats
and a warm bed at night
then i'll lace my fingers into your palm
and jump without closing my eyes

Every night I pick a star in the sky
and persistently follow the path
that leads to it.
But soon I realize:
the star that once lit the way
is now dead,
and has been so for eons...
Tonight I shall choose a new direction,
one with no light
and I will navigate on it,
and witness the birth and death of galaxies
as I go by...
But I won't stop,
I will go on
Oh, Darkness, I...

Athenya-Daughter of FulgrimAthenya Tyeuthe pushed herself through the drill again, again and yet again. Each time failing to dodge or at the least parry the final attack delivered by the training cage and was knocked to the floor a new bruise blossoming somewhere on her body. Despite her failure she savored the drilling, it was the only time where thinking about the events taking place to her Father and Legion was not required. Finally, Athenya parried the final attack and disabled the cage. She put the huge axe she had been drilling with to the side and took up her two handed sword, her favorite weapon. A gift from her Father long ago when she had first completed her training.Athenya-Daughter of Fulgrim3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

The Fall of ThessiaCommander Shepard approached Liara's office and stopped short of the door sensors. She drew in a deep breath, closed her eyes and exhaled slowly. She could hear the sobs out here. Each one was breaking her heart. Shepard took another step forward and the office door opened. A wave of relief passed over her, she had been worried that door would be locked. Shepard had expected Glyph to greet her when she entered but the little information drone just hovered in the corner. Maybe Liara had put it in stand-by or perhaps it understood its master was in no mood to deal with it.The Fall of Thessia3 years ago in Settings More Like This

To be honest, I don't remember much of it anymore. It's all a blur of rushing through crowded streets and cramped bus rides and crowds of foreign languages. When I look at the pictures, in fact, I can't seem to recall taking most of them. I can't even tell what some of them are supposed to be.
Our first stop was Paris, France.
I hated it there. It was dirty. Smelly. Crowded. Disgusting. Wherever we found ourselves, disdain was the only courtesy that was shown to us by those who called the City of Light their home. It didn't even matter that I loved each inch of history that was told to us by our guide - I just wanted to go home and get away from the squirming, teeming atmosphere that clung to me like fog on a rainy day.
We spent three days in Paris.
The first day is nothing but a fractured, bone-weary mess in my mind that consists of walking and walking and eating and walking and listening and walking and walking. The second day is simply bit

Our angels, the indomitable Davids
Who once challenged Goliath,
Leave only shadows of their glory
As their wings burn out;
They flutter to the sea in defeat,
Our reign here soon will end.
The sky bears true witness to our destruction,
We shall soon disappear into the depths.
Our men leave us on their boats,
Floating between the lines of waves
Like the final notes of our requiem.
The flames of war will consume our bodies,
Leaving our ash to scatter upon the crossroads of the seas.
The evacuation is complete.
May those brave souls live long and prosper,
Or die in glory with due honor.
Perhaps we can, on a higher plane,
Sail again united in unbroken peace.
The decks lie barren; our time has passed.
I look up at the moon, and for once, my heart is quiet.

He was not a psyker.
He had been taken by the Enforcers more than once for testing when they performed their irregular sweeps, or when word of his "talents" had reached them and they checked for latent emergence. But they had found him to be well within acceptable limits, lacking any obvious psychic taint.
This had not noticeably interfered with his income. In fact, if anything, it had built upon his reputation. No one could be seen to be visiting an unlicensed psyker, after all. But one could visit someone officially sanctioned as definitely not a psyker... and whisper behind one's hand that his powers were clearly so great that he could deceive even the penetrating talents of the Emperor's Witch Finders!
He sat in the gloom of his "consulting room" and drummed his fingers impatiently on the table. He was expecting a client and it helped the atmosphere for them to find him deep in meditation in the dark room, its rich furnishings

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.
All my days are boring. Just si

You were outside today, in the almost one-hundred degree heat doing work for your parents, as they had better things to do...meaning they wanted to stay inside and watch T.V. all day.
You were in charge of most things chore related around the house. Even at age seventeen, your parents still treated you like a ten year old slave, making you do everything for them, and when you refused or had done your chore wrong, you were beaten.
In fact, you had to wear jackets and pants to cover up bruises and scars your parents had given you. Though the ones on your face were just there for you to lie about, and let people think you were clumsy and fell all the time, causing your eye to be black, or your jaw to be bruised.

When Makoto Kino received these orders from Luna, she couldn't help but feel slightly disappointed. Ever since becoming Sailor Jupiter, Makoto's life had been overcome by a raging typhoon of violence and chaos as she became a champion of justice fighting the Dark Kingdom's minions, the Youma.
