The furniture in your room is arranged to create the largest open space possible in order to practice.
You get upset when you can't find Baton Twirler Barbie.
You critique the technique of twirlers and dancers that you see on TV.
Even if you are terrible at math, counting to eight is no problem for you.
You are planning on or already have bought stock in bobby pins.
You have an entire closet filled with old costumes and practice clothes.
If seated, you cannot listen to music without mentally choreographing a routine in your head.
You own more leotards than formal gowns.
You can fix anything with safety pins.
You look at street clothes and see possibilities for practice outfits.
A broken finger is more than an inconvenience.
Costume catalogs are captivating reading material.
Seeing someone do splits does not send you into shock.
S t r e t c h i n g is not just something you do for a few seconds when you roll out of bed in the morning.

Across the halls with endless walls,
a white noise sound blurs the unknown.
Yet in the end she feels secure,
to find the lines to guide her home.
She tried to crawl her way out from,
the chains that this one had upon,
but every time she tried to crawl,
it felt as life knock on deaths door.
With little strength she hit the walls,
that kept her in far from the sun.
I wonder when will i go Home
To see the one that waits with hope.

In the wide open lands of DunBroch Princess Merida, the girl who changed her destiny after accidentally turning her mother into a bear thanks to the dealings with a witch, was out riding in the early morning with her horse Angus.
Even before the curse over her mother was lifted and both had found a deeper love for each other, Merida always enjoyed riding out in the early morning air to feel the breeze of a new day and watch the sun rise on the horizon. Her family and the servants of the castle she lived in were aware of this, so Merida knew not to worry of them worrying about her whereabouts. That made it all the more easy to ride out as far as she wanted, eve to the cliffs overlooking the open sea near her lands.
Once at her favorite spot, Merida stopped Angus and both looked out as the sun was starting to rise higher and higher. The scene was such a majestic picture that the princess took a few moments to let it sink in.

The Party Planner
''Stitch, Lilo, Angel! Have you three finished your breakfast?'', Nani called out from the kitchen. On the table were three partially filled bowls with soggy cereal inside, and most of it had sunk to the bottom of the bowl.
It was seven in the morning and Nani didn't have time for horseplay from Lilo, Stitch, nor Angel. She put her hand down upon the dark blue table and sighed, then heard something. She heard snickering from the side of the table. Nani turned her head to the side to see a pair of legs belonging to Stitch and they were crawling under the table. She smirked. Once she squatted down to get a better view she saw that blue furred creature with a spoon handle up his nose.
"Augh Stitch! Get that out from your nose!'', Nani said, disgustedly.
Stitch began to laugh uncontrollably, then Nani grabbed his legs and attempted to drag him out from his hiding spot.
" Stitch, I don't have time for this, David picks me up in forty minutes!''

"We're under a siege " The man replied, peeking outside his house, hearing the screams of terror and pain going on outside in their village. "You stay here with the baby. I'll go out and check. Remember, keep quiet."
The woman nodded, backing away into the darker corner of the house, watching as her husband walked outside with a kunai in hand. She sat in the dark in tense silence, holding her baby protectively. Suddenly, she looked down, only to find that the child was beginning to whimper.
"Shhh " She cooed, brushing her thumb against the infant's soft cheek. "It's ok, it'll be ok, don't cry "
The baby snuggled closer to his mother and the woman was relieved that he didn't cry out or else they would've been found. Suddenly, a man's cry pierced through the air which sent a shiver down her spine.

All was calm as a massive galleon cruised across the ocean's surface, its lion-head bowsprit and straw-hat wearing Jolly Roger noticeable anywhere. From its deck, one could hear merry music from a fiddle, and the members of the crew either singing or dancing along to it.
Joining them in the festivities was the captain of this ship known to all as "Thousand Sunny". That captain was none other than the famed Straw-Hat Luffy.
The song came to an end and the skeletal fiddler took a bow, his art complete. If he had a proper face, he would have smiled at the cheers.
“WOW!” Luffy said with a broad smile, “Play it again!”
Yet as the crew celebrated, a simple-looking steamboat was coming across their path up ahead. At first, the crew paid no mind to it. That all changed because, just when the skeleton

I never thought it could be like this
My trust I had built crushed like that
Just in one single twist
It blew away vulnerably but oh so fast
Talked me through in believing in you
And still remaining feelings
I still love you
I wish I could change these things
Change them back to what they were
Not even have to doubt about taking this road
Wouldn't dare to share my love
Wouldn't dare to care
I can't say it wasn't my fault
But it was you who set the traps
It was you who had let me fall
Did you want to see me collapse?
See me down here, left to crawl?
It was so hard for me, to trust someone
Now that I finally did
I fell right back from where I begun
Cause your deceiving eyes
Were only telling me lies
I never thought it would end up like this
Still hoping for that impossible kiss....

The two fighters made their entrances. Avatar Aang swooped in from the skies on his glider, coming to a smooth landing. By reflex, he adopted a martial stance, his staff leveled. Meanwhile, Danny Fenton, unimpressed with Aang’s display, shouted simply…
Two white halos encircled the spikey haired youth, splitting from the middle and going their separate ways, transforming him into his superpowered alter ego. Danny opened his eyes, which had gone from bright blue to a neon green. He smiled and took on his own fighting stance, fists aglow with ectoplasmic energy.
They were ready.
Danny was first on the offensive, letting fly a volley of ecto blasts. But the Avatar sprung into some good old-fashioned acrobatics, easily evading the trails of green light. Danny tried firing faste

A figure in a black, hooded cloak stood in the empty quarters aboard a massive space cruiser. All who had perceived him a threat and tried eliminating him, from battle droids to panicking officials onboard the ship drawing concealed weapons, lay in pieces around him.
All he had to do now was wait...
A noise came from the nearby doorway. A distinct, sharp-sounding "clink", as though something sharp and metal was regularly hitting the ground...and was getting louder and louder as it got closer. It definitely caught the figure's attention, for he turned to the door just as it slid open.
On hearing the door, the figure turned around fully and opened its eyes, revealing they were the same color as open flame. These bright-orange eyes met a pair of yellow, reptilian ones in a death glare.

Bombs fell everywhere, making the dust fly against the soldiers, some pebbles included as well. One of those pebbles went right against the arm of a blue furred alien you might know. He yelped in pain, but there was no time on checking if it had done any harm to him. A light green shot passed him by, nearly hitting him. He dodged it in time and hid behind a hideous rock, wanting to return the shot to anybody who had dared to shot at him.
-Retreat! Listen to me, you all! RETREAT! somebody shouted in broken Turian.
Stitch shifted his ears when he heard the order. His companions were starting to run away, and soon he could see the cause. The enemies were starting to take over the place, and they were starting to outnumber them as well. With a last look at them, he ran away with his mates.

Riku sensed a powerful darkness in the forest - in this reality itself - a surge of malevolence and vengeance so potent it was palpable. To him, it made the atmosphere of the forest oppressively suffocating. The Keyblade Master instinctively knew a darkness such as this needed to be stopped before it spread any further, less the Heartless find yet another world to invade, corrupt and consume.
On the other end, Sasuke - the rogue shinobi, one of the last of the Uchiha - had sensed an individual of great power in his approximate vicinity. It seemed prudent to check it out. He felt this driving, burning need to seek out this power, and he couldn't quite put a finger on why he had to. But he had to.
