For a glorious twenty years he ruled over his Amazon sisters preaching peace and love. He even opened the borders of Paradise Island to the rest of Man's world. The perfect utopia was available for all to enjoy, but now, Themyscira was under attack on the very shores that were once closed to the feet of man.
"Themyscira will not fall while I am King!" Tristan promised. While his powers were almost nonexistent he was still a deadly warrior who should not be trifled with.
He was surrounded by his Amazon council, they were his inner circle. These were not only the fiercest of the Amazons, but also thd smartest and most experienced in combat. His three daughters were among them, the Princesses of Themyscira.
"Then we shall fight!" Artemis declared. Artemis had become Tristan's personal Champion when he chose to give up his powers. She fought for him and was willing to die in his honor. She raised her sword into the air. Every Amazon in the room joined her. They were al

Arrows rained down by the hundreds. It did not take long for Artemis to rally her Amazon sisters and take a full frontal assault against their attackers. By the hundreds, fully armored men stormed the shores of Themyscira. They wore battle armor similar to the Amazons and seemed to have the same kind of warrior's fire the Themysciran women had as well.
"Amazons!" Artemis shouted over the noise of rushing war. "Attack!" she commanded with her sword pointed towards the enemy. She pulled on the golden reins of the Pegasus and flew directly towards the heart of the enemy's swarm. With a great swipe of her blade Artemis took the heads of four of the male warriors clear off.
A wave of angry women followed her down her path with their swords raised. By the hundreds the Amazons stormed into battle. But this was not an epic battle like David versus Goliath. This was a war of the century! While one man would fall on the battle grounds, he took with him two Amazons.

In the beginning, there was light…
Cast upon a raft, adrift in a heartless sea,
My mind was imprisoned, clouded with doubt,
I was alone, they could not find me,
I'd fallen from grace and could not get out.
Tidal currents would flow and ebb,
Wrought with words that wished to fly,
To soar above all that held them back,
And part the clouds that made them cry.
The sunlight brought naught but fire and pain,
Soothing syrens of the sea began to call my name,
Guiding my soul into the cool and rolling waves,
A realm of "darkness and corruption" is where I'd be saved.
Drawn deeper through abyssal depths,
Forgotten by the light, who'd all but left,
I found to my delight, creatures of such purity and life,
My soul began to find a strength despite its strife.
Twas from here he came…
A being born in darkness and the unforgiving sea,
His eyes held its depth and flowing beauty,
They held the strength and mystery of eternity,
And those eyes then

Do you know what it's like to feel constantly on edge?
That even when you're happy and content,
the slightest thing may send you into a spiral of worry and doubt?
When things that may seem insignificant to others,
Or only mildly problematic, can cause you to panic?
Do you know what it's like to yearn for reassurance, or comfort
to need someone to just accept how you feel and help you work
through it without judging?
To sometimes be reluctant to seek that help, because you fear
the few people you can confide in may eventually get
annoyed with you if you go to them too often
Do you know what it's like to have to endure it alone?
Sometimes my thoughts get stuck in a loop of what's worrying me
and other thoughts or concerns find it hard to break through
To be worried to distraction, unable to keep still
to be tiered yet unable to sleep?
Did you know you can literally get worried sick?
Sometimes even I am aware my fear and worry is out of proportion

I can live
With her caress
My heart is warm
And through her love
I have found freedom at last
What is more pure
Than desire from heaven?
To willingly fall from its grace?
What have I done
To have earned such a blessing
My soul cries for joy in this embrace
Closing my eyes I pray to god
Repenting for my life
There's no hope in the words that I speak
For I have not place on earth
Then through the tears of heavens gates
The answer that I seek
My Angel is coming to me!
Somehow mercy is shining bright
Reflected in her eyes
I'll never know what she sees in me
What I see in her is pure
I taste the truth upon her lips
She will always be mine
My Angel now loyal to me!
I am not worthy of this place
Blessings I don't deserve
There is no joy surpassing passion
And now despite all my sins
I hold eternity with me
Crying as I smile
My Angel has fallen to me!
Within my arms
Then by my kiss
Her mind can rest

FANFICTIONS INVOLVING RAPEPSA ABOUT WRITING FANFICTIONFANFICTIONS INVOLVING RAPE9 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
TW: Rape, Discussion about Rape, etc.
I know some of you guys aren't aware of this, but it is not okay to write any fanfiction where someone is a rapist, is being raped, or anything like that. Rape is a very very very sensitive topic, and it is never okay to write a fanfiction about it that glorifies it and makes it out less of a horrible thing than it really is. I've seen this used in many a fanfiction and its upsetting to see good characters turned into monsters by fanfiction writers. (notable examples of these characters include: France from Hetalia, and Cronus from Homestuck) Now before you say things like: "but it's just a fanfiction!" "it's not real!" "it's not hurting anyone!" "but [insert character here] is a rapist so it's okay!"
PLEASE LISTEN: None of these are valid excuses, or likely true in the slightest. There is NEVER an excuse for writing about rape in this way. Rape is a horrible horrible crime tha

The Life of AnimationThe Life of Animation4 years ago in Historical More Like This
"If this business was easy, it would be a sin."
-Hayao Miyazaki, Animerica Magazine. 1993
Animation is the youngest medium of art that mankind has created. Spanning barely over one hundred years, its history is as rich and dramatic as any other. Starting as the simple idea of an illusion of moving art by a couple clever innovators at Edison's film company in the early 1900's, it soon boomed into a mega-corporate commercial venture that employed thousands and captivated millions only decades later. It spread outside of America and took many different forms in many different countries and cultures. Today, the face of animation is very different than it ever was. Computers, corporate chokeholds and the death of the innovators of animation has left a doubtful future for the preservation of animation's defining age.
The 1910's saw the rise of animation as a serious medium and the first studios began to appear in the United States. Winsor McCay, a masterful draftsman and artist, had
