A Vampires CurseShe walked that dark road in fear,A Vampires Curse9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Fear of being followed,
She felt a presence,
She knew he was there
He watched her with a lust filled eye,
He watched the graceful movement she took in each step,
He silently followed her,
Moving like nothing but a shadow
She felt his hand upon her arm,
And she felt the need to scream,
But another hand covered her mouth,
She silently prayed to be saved
He felt her soft porcelain skin,
Beneath his finger tips,
He smelt her fear, and the strawberry scent in her hair,
He wanted her, then and there
She stayed silent as he brought himself closer,
She thought she could fight back,
Though he was quick to have his way,
She was dead before she knew it
He smiled as he brought his lips to her neck,
'She shall be my new pet' he thought with an evil smirk,
He bared his fangs, and sunk them in deep,
He tasted the sweet nector of her blood
He was not a rapist,
And she was not dead,
Now they're both immortal,
A vampires curse on their heads
Crazy LoveThey said that it was Breaking NewsCrazy Love9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A triumph scientific;
Not one minute did they lose
The message was specific...
'Neath camera's glare the man announced
In an excited wheeze,
"Our studies show this thing called LOVE
Is akin to a mental disease!"
Perplexed and stunned, the crowd was still,
No reaction did they show,
Till one man shouted, "Tell us please
A thing we don't already know!"
"Mushy poems on Valentine's Day,
Rings that swallow half our pay,
Not happy till your wife you've made 'er,
A screaming brat comes nine months later..."
"D'you think we'd go through all that pain
If LOVE were something that was sane?"

PondsThe Doctor will never get to see his Ponds again. Or will he? River brings someone special to visit.Ponds1 year ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
The Doctor was lying under the console, fiddling with some repairs. There was a slap of lightning and a familiar crackle.
He smiled to himself and waved a hand, "River, can you hand me the Zeus plugs?"
"Is that him?" said a young voice in a loud whisper.
The Doctor's eyes popped wide and he jumped up. He stared down over the railing to the entry section below. River stood there, holding the hand of a six year old little boy.
River grinned up at him, an unusual hesitance in her stance. She was holding the boy's hand very tightly.
The Doctor crept slowly down the stairs. The boy studied him avidly. The child was no taller than River's waist, he had brown hair, and green eyes, and was skinny as a stick. He hopped back and forth from foot to foot, jiggling her hand. "Is it him?" he demanded again, in a loud stage whisper.
"Yes, sweetie, it's him." She laid a gentle hand on his head,
UpgradeOne day we said, "We just can't wait,Upgrade9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
We mustn't miss a beat
We'll change our Windows 98
To one less obsolete
I unplugged the tower from its wire maze
For an upgrade I did ask
The man said, "Three to five business days
It'll take to finish the task."
Computerless. At first it seems
An inconvenience small,
Then came the barely stifled screams-
Oh, no! Computer withdrawal!
No E-mail! Our palms did sweat
No solitaire! No internet!
Indeed, our longing got so bad
We even missed the pop-up ads!
Day after day our gaze would land
(We couldn't help ourselves)
Upon the bare computer stand
It's empty, lifeless shelves.
Three to five days long were past
When finally, it came at last
A joyful message on the phone
Hurray! Our baby's coming home!
So share with us our boundless joy!
We welcome home our favorite toy,
And hope with desperate hope and tears
That we won't need an upgrade for many years!

When the darkness comes
When the shadows return
Six lights will awake
Guided by their friendship
With the power of

Bring an end to evil
Honesty will fight against any lies
Kindness will aid those overwhelmed by anger
Laughter will wither all sadness away
Generosity will help those in need
Loyalty will strike bravery into the hearts
Magic will then make everything complete!
Rise forth once more
With the sun and moon guiding their way
They will always prevail!
You'll find your way!

Honesty will help stand us firm as mountains
Bombia's Tips to Happy Roleplaying. Roleplaying Tips and EtiquetteBombia's Tips to Happy Roleplaying.9 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Hello, my name is Bombia and I have been roleplaying for about thirteen years. Over those years, I have learned many things and I would like to pass on some knowledge to other roleplayers who are newer to it or would like some tips.
First off, let me talk about some etiquette tips.
Noting a person as part of a roleplay request:
What I find annoying and irritable is if someone just notes me with a "Hello." and nothing else. If noting a person for a roleplay, please tell them why you are noting them. That way the person who you are sending the Note to knows why you are noting them and the process is smoother.
Ending a roleplay
If you no longer wish to do a roleplay, please note the person and let them know that you do not wish to continue and if possible providing them with feedback as to why. That way you do not leave the person longing and waiting for a roleplay. It gets very annoying and rude. In some cases
What Music Is"What is music?"What Music Is4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A young boy asked me that today.
I bent down to his level, so our faces met eye to eye, and, grinning, I responded.
"Why do you care? Out of our world today, why is it you who cares?"
He looked thoughtfully back at me with his eyes, too full of wisdom for his age, and he said, "Because I want to make good music someday."
I liked his answer, so I told him I did. He smiled, seeming honestly pleased that I liked his opinion. He grabbed my hand as I stood up, pleading at me with his eyes, and when I looked into them, I knew he wanted to hear more.
"I will show you the things that proper music make." I said to him. And as I walked along down the street with this child's hand in mine, I thought of how trusting he was being. I didn't know what to make of it, but as he followed along the street with me, I began to point out the things with which proper music was made.
"Music," I said, pausing to think. He looked up at me, as he had noticed my pause because we had stopped walki

That sits on a shelf-
Ive been there in person
Ive seen it myself!
They just walk around it
Like nobody cares,
Ignoring those dark and mysterious stairs
To the dungeon.
And so, while I linger here
Sipping my tea,
I cant help but ponder
What reason thered be
For a sweet, small cafe
So pleasant and charming
To have as its centerpiece,
Dark and alarming,
A portal that leads
To a dungeon!
I suppose itd come in handy if
A patron thought his bill to stiff,
Or a cheapskate who leaves
A tip too small,
Or screaming children
And thats not all-
Ill bet thats even where they choose
To toss those who enter
Without shirt or shoes,
And clumsy kids who spill their milk
They lock them and all
Their detestable ilk
In the dungeon!
All you artists of open mic-
Choose only the pieces
You think folks will like.
Carefully consider your hits and your misses
Cause here they dont both

Elf vs. Orc 8Celadon woke up in the elf's arms.Elf vs. Orc 89 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
This sounded a lot more romantic than it actually was.
For one thing, learning to sleep in proximity to another person is an acquired skill. You learn what to do with the arm that always seems to get stuck between you and where to put your feet and whether they mind having a leg draped over theirs and who can use whose arm as a pillow without nerve damage or a sore neck. Then there's the whole complex negotiation of blanket treaties and sheets and who gets what and who needs layers and who has to stick their feet out.
Without acquiring these vital habits, you wake up pretty much like Celadon—stiff, sore, with a knee wedged into your ribs and blankets tangled around both of them like sleeping anacondas.
While it's traditional when parties of the opposite sex find themselves entangled for someone's hands to be in an embarrassing position, that actually wasn't the case. She was pretty much in the elf's lap, where one of his knees was up and digging into
We Danced in the RainWe watch the rain fall,We Danced in the Rain9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We stand together,
In each others arms,
And I begin to hear the music play
It starts out soft,
Just like the rain,
I feel the music course through me,
I begin to sway to the sound
I turn around, give you a little smile,
I take your hand,
"Shall we Dance?" I say,
Then I lead you out into the rain
Our bodies so close together,
Keeping us warm, fighting the cold,
Looking into your eyes,
All I see is love
Not caring about the rain,
Pouring down on us,
Because all I see,
Is you and me
The song ends,
But we dont stop dancing,
Because now it's just you and me,
I look up to the sky,
I feel the rain soaking my clothes,
But all of that is lost,
When I look at you again
All I could feel was,
Love, Happiness, Contentment,
All those feelings we shared,
As we danced in the rain

Demon. All my life I've identified myself as Earl Ciel Phantomhive, human, thirteen year old boy who has sold his soul to a demon. Never have I thought of myself becoming the same of what my personal servant and lover is. Not once, not ever. Yet here I am, sitting at a table with a human and a demon that I would love to see dead being told that I am a demon.
Perhaps I'm dreaming, but the look on Claude's face informs me otherwise.
A bemused grin cracks Alois' face as he leans across the table, his long fingers clenching his silver wear, "A demon?! My Ciel is a demon?!" he smirks, attempting a sultry pout, "Oh how enticing. Now I have two demons to wait on me."

Elf vs. Orc 2Celadon Toadstool was delirious.Elf vs. Orc 29 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
The funny bit—uproariously funny, it seemed to her—was that she knew she was delirious. The world was billowing around her. It looked as if someone had meticulously painted the inside of a cottage on silk, and then hung it in a gentle breeze. The corners floated inward and collapsed back out again with a sigh.
That someone would go to all that trouble, painting a cottage on silk, was hilarious.
She knew she was wounded. She couldn't quite remember how she'd been wounded. Imagine not remembering a thing like that!
This also struck her as hilarious.
Her name, in Orcish, was Urrsharruk-gah, and she had skin the delicate gray-green of the gills of cave mushrooms, and eyes the color of stolen gold. Her hair was thick and dark and she wore it tucked under her helmet to keep enemies from being able to grab it, which was problematic, because she'd lost her helmet somewhere along the way, and she wasn't in the best of shape anyway.
Even in her immense good humor

Electric candlelight within-
The convenience is high,
And there's certainly less
Of a seedy, pulpy, pumpkin mess...
And drawing the face,
And deciding the smile-
Blunt teeth or jagged?

Avoiding a slip
Giggles and laughs
Make it hard to grip.
Find the candle it needs
Then roasting the seeds...
Did I say I prefer the ceramic one?
The truth is... a real pumpkin's much more fun!
