Let's rememberThe following note is a bit scattered, but I wanted to share some of my memories from Sept 11th. Feel free to share your own experiences below.
Ten years ago today I was standing underneath the vaulting ceiling in Westminster Abby, sketching the face of a marble angel on the tomb of a young woman. His empty, opaque eyes were focused on the upturned face of the girl he was reaching out to. He had a beautiful face. The sculptor had captured a sense of peace in the pale, frozen features, and I wanted very much to capture it. I remember my neck beginning to hurt from looking up when my sister came hurrying up to me. "We have to go," she said urgently. "Dad said something really bad happened in New York." My family found each other and huddled together as my dad briefly explained what had happened. A priest had approached him and, after asking if he was an American, had told him the news. My dad had had to go to a pub down the street in order to watch (the second tower fell as soon as the b

Albeit, I have done some pretty some pretty strange things. All the times Ive seen someones lip curl when they see me pass by . Arrogant; Ive heard people call me that. Arrogant and disbelieving in my obviously psychotic mannerisms. Axioms, they say it is an axiom that my psychosis of slaughter is directly related to my schizoid behaviors.

Ready to pull the trigger

They ask why
Being innocent was their only crime
With no explanation, they are left to die.
They are left to die
The soldier carries his gun
Shoots down civilians.
Who got caught on the front lines.
No explanation needed
The soldier will kill
To "protect us"
Even if it costs other's lives
Lives they should have.
But they were in front of the bullet.
That's the only reason why they died.
Just a gun on the front lines
Ready to die for "us"
Meaning that corrupted organization we call government.
I don't blame only you.
Fear spreads through us.
But we lean on our politicians
And pray they kill those terrorists
Like they hurt us.

adrift, spinning. It patiently tracks the breeze
on the edge of genesis, floating in motes
of static. On the surface, it seems at ease.
Light filters through oak leaves and coats
its thrall, the summer heat's slow weave
through the river's margins to the throat
of the sea. Small fish leap up to tease
the moon tonight. Simply, this white note
rotates its body like thread released
from reel, alters its position over nodes

Once you find love, you're supposed to hold on.
But how am I supposed to?
If he lives within the pages of myth.
He's charmed me so, I fell fast and hard, but yet I cannot reach him.
Most girls dream of heroes and princes.
I dream of a magician.
He's too tall, too skinny, too clumsy, too incompetent, too old,
And his nose is far too big.
But I love him.
As far as lovers go, we're perfect.
Oh my dear Magician,
Cast another spell.
Turn fantasy into reality.
I don't even care if you fail,
Like you have so many times before.
Try to become real.
For our love.
For what could be.
I want to dwell in your green eyes,
This barrier between us keeps me away from them.
I want to hear the stories of your life that you've led,
So many years and eons,
Cursed to be young forever.
Tell me about your failures, your past loves,
Just come lie here with me,
Multiple vs. MPD, DID, DDNOSRogan: Hey Sneak. We're multiple, right?Multiple vs. MPD, DID, DDNOS4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Rogan: So, does that mean we must have Multiple Personality Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, or Dissociative Disorder Not Otherwise Specified?
Sneak: Nope! Not at all!
Rogan: Care to elucidate on that?
Sneak: Sure! First of all, we flunk the diagnostic criteria for MPD or DID.
Rogan: *claps hands to face* Gasp! How can that be?
Sneak: Easy. To have DID or MPD, you don't just rent out your mental real estate. People have to take over control of the body, and you have to have trouble remembering important things. We fulfill the first and second parts, but our memory problems are pretty much negligible

“Bodil?! Bodil wake up! It’s ok!”-I said as I tried to shake him awake-“Come on Bodil snap out of it!”-He was starting to calm down-“Bodil…?”-No response, I noticed that his chest was not moving, that’s when my heart almost stopped, Bodil was entering suspended animation.-“BODIL!?!?! Please Bodil wake up! I can’t lose you like this!”

Near the ever free forest stood a little Alicorn pony of the age of 16. Her coat was pure white with a mane of black, along with a circle with a x over it for her cutie mark. Her name was S.e.n, and she was the daughter of the Slendermane, and today she was planning on meeting with someone that was near and dear to her heart. One that she knew as a filly at the age of 8.
"Oh when is he getting here" S.e.n said to herself as she paced back and forth watching the fall leaves flout to the ground on the chilly afternoon.
An hour has pasted and S.e.n was about to think he forgot, until she was a familiar unicorn coming from the bushes. He wore metal goggles with metallic gold on them that matched with his hooves, his coat a very light green, along with a dark greenish blue mane and tail

"Yes, you will." he shifts Sherlock's weight. "You and I, we're going to have some adventures. You have a great life ahead of you, Sherlock." He smiles and breathes in the new-baby smell on Sherlock's wispy curls, bouncing the baby slightly. Sherlock giggles. "Yes, you're going to be a great man someday."
"Doctor?" Sherlock says, plucking at a tweed jacket sleeve. "You'll take me with you, won't you?"
The Doctor ruffles the boy's hair. "Take you where?"
"Wherever you're going. In your box. Take me on adventures!"

FlyingDaemon watched Lucivar fly over the open field, filled equally with awe and apprehension. They hadn't known each other long- it had been long enough to start brawls and escape their Queens together, but not long enough to actually trust each other with their secrets. Despite that, Daemon felt an instinctive connection with Lucivar. There was something, some spark that connected them. Daemon was too afraid to ask, too worried that it was his imagination, that his life as a pleasure slave was causing him to crack much sooner than expected, so he watched Lucivar and tried to piece it all together.Flying9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Daemon would know- he spent as much time as he could spare watching Lucivar, whether he be eating, flying, or brawling.

It's always giving you a hard time getting home as fast as you can, due to the lack of transportation that will pass through your street where you live. You wanted to complain and grumble about stuff, but you can't since you're too tired from your activities. Sighing in defeat, you just remained calm and kept a vigilant eye on the passing vehicles to see if there would be any luck that a passenger jeep will unload a lot of people.

I was in a rush. Something big was supposed to happen today.
But hey, while I can't slow down my hurrying footsteps, I can slow down on my thoughts. For starters, I work at the JC Penny in the mall around here, as an assistant manager. Recently, our boss, the manager, told us he was moving on, and agreed to leave his position to one of the two assistant managers. I had been neck and neck with the other assistant manager for months, and this was the perfect opportunity to show him up and snag the position.
I was rushing through the crowded halls of the mall, to-go coffee in my hand and an intent to come out on top. I was in such a rush to get to work that I hardly noticed that someone was copying my hurried footsteps right next to me. I turned my head to wave the newcomer off, but I instead found myself slowing down to look more closely.
First and foremost, he was gorgeous. He had a lanky teen look to him, he couldn't have been older
