That was the first one.
Number 1 didn't even bother to try blocking them out as she had before, that sometimes made it worse for Number 12, especially when the boss was this angry. It was her fault, she knew, giving that despicable creature the opening he needed to once again cause his most hated underling pain but she couldn't help it. She'd made a promise to her brother and she was going to keep it!
Still, it got to her sometimes just how much their lives had changed since they had been two silly kids, back when they'd been Dexter and Dee Dee, building things and then - mostly in her case - pulling them all down again.
There were times when she looked back on those innocent days and wished deeply to hear the voice of her little brother shouting at her to get out of his lab after again pulling something to pieces. But she couldn't help it, everything he'd made in that place was so cool! He'd made hover crafts and giant robots, given himself superpowers - even

Oh, but fake halos are so easy to break
and pointless lives are so easy to take
porcelain dolls I am longing to smash
bend their wings and down they will crash
take a picture it 'll last longer than I will
a silhouette on my windowsill
death and destruction are the things that I'm made for
power and loss are what I'll be slayed for
angel, devil tell me which
the world watches as I switch
I watch you from too far away
lost in what I want to say
I live my life on the edge of a rose
halfway broken from my head to my toes
you make me whole and loving at night
but daytime only brings a fight
a man of science, stung by the past
I hope my love can be his cast
losing can hurt, this I know well
Falling? Possibly. Possibly fell.
numb to the world, feeling like hell
walks on the beach: feet cut by a shell
you brought me up to the sun
showed me love, showed me fun
thank you my angel, thank you for everything
you make my heart want to sing
Love me 'till the end of my life, and then in hell

Chapter One: Brother and Sister
He drew a deep breath and held it, trying not to explode at the sound of a squeaky voice singing out his name. Since he had begun his struggle to function in the same universe as Billy, it seemed only fair that he put equal or greater effort into getting along with his own sister even though she had long ago perfected the art of irritating him.
Whaaaat? he growled, trying to concentrate on three computer screens at once.

She was leaning right over his shoulder, close enough so that her blonde pigtails tickled his neck. He slowly counted to ten before he replied.

When finally the Mech stopped moving, they were moved at laser point from ship to cell through an echoing, run-down facility. Dexter made no attempt to be subtle as he took in their surroundings. The halls they were moved through were old, industrial, and smelt of burned metal. The windows were dark with grime, but through a few broken panes he caught sight of smoke stacks and conveyors, long abandoned.

There's a sliver of light
Where your eyes touch the white,
Then I see, can it be?
My tears as dark as ebony.
I see you there, so tall,
So when I stumble, trip and fall,
You'll catch me, pray,
I'll hear you say
There was once a time
I heard your voice in rhyme,
All tones, myriad
They drove me mad,
But then entreated
So much that beated
On my heart that day,
When you say
But then, it broke,
My heart did choke,
My whole world shook,
Your voice then took
One hope and dream,
That then would seem
Like Judgement day
When you say
Now, here I lie,
Prepared to die
Among crimson rose
So that your prose
Would be silenced and
Brought to an end
So that I may

Welcome back to the SithVamp Halloween SpecDracular! Who’s not familiar with Scooby-Doo? He, just like Mickey Mouse, the Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry or Popeye, is one of the most famous cartoon characters ever. And since his franchise has to do with monsters, this year’s SithVamp Halloween SpecDracular will include a Scooby-Doo movie. My most favorite one: Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School!
Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School came out in 1988. The movie opens with Shaggy, Scooby, and (unfortunately) Scrappy driving in the rain in a van that’s not the Mystery Machine, to the school: the Grimwood Girl School. When they get there, they meet the school’s principal, Mrs. Grimwood and her pet, a hot-tempered dragon called Matches.
Then Mrs. Grimwood introduces Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy to the students in the school: Elsa Frankenteen a Frankenstein Monster girl, Dracula’s daughter Sibella, a little werewolf called Winnie, a ghost girl named Phantasma and last but not

Flaky lay still in a puddle of blood, the essence of death slowly rimming her. The lullaby swirled slightly in her vaguely conscious mind. Her world was crumbling down and the surrounding was whirling in madding speed. Yet, her senses remained intact. She could see. She could hear. And most unfortunately, she could still feel. As the odor of her own blood gradually suffocated her, she twitched her ruined body in agony. Her face was drenched in crimson liquid. Her limbs had long been suppressed by numbness. She was dying.

The name his parents had given him and engraved into him when he was first brought into this accursed world, which had only served to cause him further pain and humiliation. He loathed that name; it was a name for a girl, not a man with his dark brilliance.
At first, he tried to just live with it, since his parents had been the ones to choose it, not him, maybe others would understand. Such was not the case. His rival, the young self-proclaimed boy genius who lived in the same street as him was the first to mock him, driving him of the edge and wanting nothing more than revenge. Thus, he discarded the name and took in the name Mandark, a much more fitting name for one like himself.
From there on, no one would ever mock his name or call him Susan again. And no one did, not even Dee Dee, the one person Mandark may have let it slip on occasions, but she too would call him Mandark. All was good for the time being, and as time went by, he completely forgot about the

Bigger than the tallest brute
Six black arms will grab you up
Or, stalk you till you just give up
A top hat bares upon his head
Makes your soul fill up with dread
He takes you when you least expect
Boil you up, and eat your neck
He'll leave your body not to eat
But staple your corpse on a tree
