I met a snarky ghost
who was prettier than most
her name was Sarah Kerrigan
and no one else came close
She could make herself invisible
and hide from prying foes
she'd spy on them for hours on end
how my love for her did grow
But one day fate swept down on her
and said her time was near
I cursed and howled and threw a fit
'Not a chance!' I yelled for all to hear
Oh Sarah, why'd it happen
Sarah, why'd you go
Sarah, how I loved you
but I never told you so
I put her in a dropship
in the corner of the map
to protect her and to keep her safe
from enemy attack
The zerg rushed hard
they came en mass
foul, smelly, ugly beasts
all pawing for her ass
But my defenses stood their ground
all through the day and night
battle after bloody battle
a grueling, gory fight
Finally the violence stopped
and victory was neigh
the mighty zerg had lost this time
with Sarah safely in the sky
But what was this?!
A voice cried out
'Help me, help me, someone, PLEASE!' Sa

Naruto awoke, screaming. Quickly, he made sure that he was whole and intact.
Just a dream... Okay. Ok... No, not okay. He was decidedly smaller than when he last remembered. He looked around, taking in everything. He was not in the Hokage Tower. He was not lying in bed next to the love of his life.
He was in a small, two-room apartment that looked awfully familiar.
In a flash, Naruto was out of bed and in the bathroom, desperate to examine himself, to make sure that this was just a bad dream.
The face that stared back at him from out of the mirror was that of a ten-year-old blond shinobi in-training, one with ambitions that were the source of ridicule amongst others, not just in his age group. The whisker marks that had adorned his face since before he remember, normally shrunk behind an insincere mask of laughter, were now drawn tight in an expression of utter disbelief.

Trunk Full of Rings - PopularDelving in once again, I pick a ring and pull it out. While my last transformation had resulted in some free clothes for my Rule 63 form, it wasn't worth almost losing my mind in the process.Trunk Full of Rings - Popular3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Walking over to book, I place the golden brown ring on the page and write 'What's this one called?'.
'Popular. You have good tastes my friend' comes book's reply
'But I'm picking these randomly!'
There is a pause, 'You have good random tastes'
Rolling my eyes, I turn to the mirror and slide the ring on, wondering how it could possibly make me more popular. Seems like the only way I'm going to get an answer to that.
My waist slowly thins down while my hips and breasts expand, giving me a decent hourglass figure. However, unlike the rule 63 ring, this time it goes further, stopping only after my waist becoming almost amnesic while my hips and ass stick far out and my breasts are pushing the DD-cup boundary. My arms thin out as my thighs thicken and feet shrink. In fact my whole body is shrinking sli

"How did you lure that cat into the alley for Sakura to catch it?" Sakura coughed and glared at Naruto. She knew what he'd done, but she wasn't talking about it, not even to Sasuke. Naruto grinned and shifted a few steps away from Sakura.
"Short story: I had a kage bunshin henge into a cat."
Sasuke was nonplussed. He had no idea why such a thing would work. "...Why would that-"
"A lady cat."
It wasn't often that Naruto, or anyone, really, got to see Sasuke gape. "What."
"You heard me."
Indeed Sasuke did. "Why?" However, it didn't make the answer any less surreal, in his mind.
"It worked, didn't it?"
"I mean, why did you turn into a lady cat? How or why do you even care what a cat finds sexy?" An evil grin split

Hmm it usually starts with me getting the assignment since I spend my freetime drawing other things mostly (these days at least). As soon as I know what the client wants, I leave it alone for a couple of days and wait for ideas to sprout in my head. The rest is just craftsmanship, you know, drawing the stuff and everything.

A blurred and painful awakening disrupted Chuck’s dormancy as his eyes slowly focused on his digital alarm clock.
The blinking colon between the hour and the minute counters violently drummed the seconds of his alcohol induced torment. Chuck’s head bellowed upon waves of whiskey infused headache. How had he managed to drink so much?
More importantly, what happened last night? The evening was a muddled conjecture of missed connections and happy accidents. The late hours of a night’s outing at his local pub usually lead to a booze-infused discussion of politics, religion, and sex, soon obliterated by a cleansing alcohol-fueled memory wipe.
Something prolific, a profound moment, had managed to escape the mental gravity well of his binge. A monolith, no... a person had managed to survive in his memories until his awakening.
Suddenly, a tide of recollection swept over his mind.

"It's true... He died."
Kakashi looked up from Zabuza's corpse, having just confirmed the nukenin's death. There was no pulse, at least none that he could find, and the senbon in his neck had not struck any near-death points that he knew of. He examined the newcomer as casually as he could. They were wearing what appeared to be a thick, dull orange robe worn loosely under some kind of gi. It had multiple places to hide weapons or could be used to obfuscate movement without hindering it. That wasn't what drew Kakashi's greatest concern. It was the smooth, wave-patterned mask bearing the symbol of Kirigakure over the forehead that did that.
The stranger bowed slightly. "You have my utmost thanks. I have been looking for an opportunity to kill him."
"If I recall correctly, that mask identifies you as one of Kirigakure's oi-nin."
They straightened up quickly. "As expected... You are quite well-informed." From the voice pitch, height and build, they weren't that much older than

Everytime I get my hopes up
They are shot down with a bleeding bullet
So I sit behind a locked door
In hopes that someone will find the key
I wish to tell you everything
And for you to just hold me while I cry
But I am afraid
Afraid that you will leave me alone again
Im afraid that you will walk out of that room
Pretending you never knew it existed
that's how it always happens
No one knows what to say, So they walk away
I want to believe you'll stay with me
Too many times Ive swept up the shards
So when you find the key that will give my release
Be prepared for what you'll uncover
Ill be sitting there, waiting
With my box of secrets resting in my lap
Just dont open it unless you're ready
I don't want to be let down again

Running out of words
Cant express my thoughts
So much emotion
Losing my mind
Trying to find solid ground
Paper is so blank
Ink is so full
I cant think
No feeling left inside
Dont stop moving your hand

Tell the world how it is
No holding back
Theres no way out
Everything is crashing down
Faster, harder than an avalanche
Clouded thoughts filling my head
Poison to my heart
Bleed it out

Swallowing me whole
Swept by a toxic lust

Kevin and Dave's mothers had signed them up for a private school. They were fed up with the constant irritation of everyday life of school. However, Kevin and Dave didn't mind it; school didn't pose a problem to either one of them. Their moms thought that they were exposed to fights, drug use and any other problem that would typically happen at school. And they were. They usually stayed out of the way of those things, too. But it was too much for their mothers to absorb that that was life. However, they also thought that Kevin and Dave were growing a bit of an attitude towards either parent. So, they signed both of them up for a private school, in which, they will both attend together as friends. The boys were confused; how were they, in anyway, 'have an attitude'? They were obediant children! They did their homework, listened to their parents and played games like any other boy would. They assumed it was probably something to do with the whole school problem.

"That's stupid!" you say.
"Not true," says I. This statement, in and of itself, provides proof for the existence of God. I know that, if you are a non-believer, you will instantly dismiss this quote. Your beliefs are quite firm, after all, and what can shake them? You question the existence of God, but you don't really want an answer. An answer will prove you wrong. However, if you are willing to read on, I think you'll find that the question of rather or not God exists isn't one of fact or fiction. It's true, and I shall illustrate how simply using this quote.
Perhaps I should put this quote into a different perspective. Here is one of the same theme by C. S. Lewis: "If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark."

It was the last day of school. Daniel was setting out for home when he heard rumors about a “mysterious voice moaning for help” after nightfall somewhere along the local public beach. They said the beach was haunted by some ghost, “Out to ensnare any who dared to answer it. Although slightly shaken by the tail-end of that rumor, Daniel's curiosity peaked. It was good timing as well since he had yet to plan out his summer vacation, so why not kick things off with a little ghost hunt?
Making a little detour home to grab some essentials, like a flashlight, a tape-recorder, a Catholic cross, etc... sneaking in a small meal, Daniel grabbed his bike and headed out. Night fell shortly after he'd arrived. The moon was covered rather nicely behind the dense, nighttime clouds, perfect enough to conceal Daniel's presence, until he went to use his flashlight, which he let rest in a loop on his cargo shorts
