"Midas you stupid peace of scrap!" yelled Chivelle. He usually didn't treat Midas like this, but the bot had screwed up big time on this one. "How could you just slip and tumble out of the ring, eh? You made a fool out of me, not to mention you got yourself disqualified!" Midas tried to mute out the rest. He remembered why he stumbled. While the eye-patched man told him to back step, something caught his attention: A flash of purple armor and lights, then he was on the floor, the laughing and booing crowed above him. He came back to reality with a lingering thought. there was no doubt: That was Noisy Boy.
Of Names and DecisionsFair child without sorrowOf Names and Decisions3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is your life hollow,
Dreams are just small seeds
Adventures, great deeds
Ripen long since…
A burning fire
That’s your desire:
Onwards without wince
In the light of Two Trees
Noon of Valinor's bliss
Over the wide sea, though
Lie the lands you don't know
Distant and wild
Oh, eager child...
Faithful and steady
Is you oath ready,
Reaping the visions
Of your decisions
Darkness will sink
For the oath spoken
A new hope is born
Grief of those who mourn
Up to sky flew
New day is coming
Dawning in blue
HobbitI think that I may've been a hobbitHobbit4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Since the moment of my birth.
It's the only reason I can find
To explain my expanding girth.
I have great love for seed-cakes
And biscuits buttered fine.
The only nourishment I indulge not in
is pehaps Old Winyards wine.
After breakfast comes a second,
then Elevenses, then lunch.
And indeed I do enjoy
What some folks call a brunch.
I'm never late to dinner, no,
Or supper, while we're at it.
Because of this punctuality,
My middle's quite well-padded.
I dearly love to snack all day,
And even some of night.
Do not try then to stop me,
For I'll put up quite a fight.
You may poke fun, and call me fat,
And try to stir my ire.
Keep your small amusements, fool,
For I'm off to the Shire.

Aragorn's Lament for ArwenAragorn's Lament for Arwen11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The night is drawing close around us
How much longer will we last, I wonder
The stars that once shone bright and fair in the sky
Are all covered by this shadow
The hope that once kindled in my heart
Now fades to a tiny faded light
Still I feel you within my heart
A hope that lies deep within
Your hope never fades
Nor your trust in me
My path once was hidden from me
But you light the way
Will our love endure this hard test?
Or will it flicker and die like so much already?
The only thing that I dream about now
Is your lovely face, surrounded by your raven coloured hair
How could I not stand against this shadow
When it threatens the life of one with such beauty
Alas my dreams must remain just dreams for the present
While you are safe with your father in Imladris
I am bound to wander in the East
The arm of the Enemy grows long
Soon he will have Imladris in his hand
To save you, I would send you to the Undying Lands
Sail away, my love
With the rest of your people
Leave Middle Earth and all

I've come across a lot of horrid fan fiction in my day, but if there's one thing that really really bothers me, it's a poorly written Severus Snape.

25 Rules for Writing Severus Snape
By Lauren K.
Rule Number One:
Severus Snape is a Potions Master who has been known to have been a spy, as well as exhibit extensive knowledge of the Dark Arts. The fact that I need to state this as a rule makes me die a little inside.
Rule Number Two:
Severus Snape does not refer to students by their first names unless otherwise instructed, and even then it takes effort.
Rule Number Three:
Severus Snape is not interested in anyone's personal life unless it has some bearing upon his own. Any interest shown would be done so begrudgingly.
Rule Number Four:

I couldn't quite understand what I had done. In one shining moment, I had pledged to serve one whose son had died to save me. In my heart I had been pledging my serviced to Boromir.
In life I was pledging my services to a madman.
My thoughts turned to Merry momentarily. My dearest friends, where was he? I missed him so much. I was a foolish Took, I knew. I had done exactly what I had been advised against. And now I was here, serving this madman.
The sound of horse hooves gently clipping against the cobblestone road brought my eyes downward, to the streets. There rode Faramir, strong, brave, and unappreciated. The man was so like his brother in appearance, but also so different. He was true and kind, of meek and tender heart. Yet there he was, leaving the city, seeking a peace that would only come in death. I didn't want him to go, but I knew after having been rebuked by his father, there was no other choice for him. His desire to please the aging steward came before his own will to liv

The Girl Who Was Born LostOnce upon a time,The Girl Who Was Born Lost2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
A girl was born without a mother or a father,
Into a world which had stopped moving forward long ago.
She was found and raised by a nameless old man, who lived at the end of the world.
There stood castles and cities abandoned by mankind and forgotten by time.
The land itself was a relic of some distant past, covered in a shade of melancholic gray.
In that land, time flowed in a distorted way.
This in term, made the child grow up rather quickly.
Curious about her surroundings,
She left the house everyday, to explore and play in the ruins, which laid scattered along the wastes.
She had always known this distinct sense of solitude, never having seen another human being- Her only friends being the ravens, which were strangely drawn to her.
Flying in flocks, they always surrounded her wherever she went
Waiting for something to unfold.
The girl knew nothing about the old man or much less about herself.
She from time to time would ask him, but he would n

In a sleep dreamless and deep
The black night fell
Like evil spell,
But you will your strength keep
Darkness spread over the land
The Lamps that fell we cannot mend
With poisoned sting
Now Arda's Spring
Has ended, its time spent
Close your eyes and do not fear
To my heart you are most dear
When you wake
The night will break
Sky again will be clear
Rest under the wings of night
So you can wake in new light
A tree or weed
When land again is bright

Dead faces in water
And mud is their bed
Cold and pale faces,
Both evil and fair
Cold and pale faces
With weed in their hair
All foul, all rotting
Lit by corpse-lights
All foul, all rotting,
You should not look in
Or you'll lose your wit
You should not look in

A Princess With A SecretThere was once an old King who had two daughters, of whom the younger possessed the greater beauty and vivaciousness. She captured the admiration of those around her from an early age, and when she came of an age to be courted the older princess found that she was passed over in favour of her younger sister's charms. Many powerful men approached the King for the younger princess's hand in marriage, and in time he arranged for her to become betrothed to a young King from the east.A Princess With A Secret8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Elrond was keeping his mind carefully blank, refusing to think about what would happen if they failed as he had done, even though he instinctively knew what would happen when they did. He also knew that it was a case of 'when' and not 'if' - he had known it even before he suggested sending for them. But he could not think about what it meant. Not yet. If he did, he would lose all of his carefully constructed control, and probably his mind.
So not yet.
But soon, because he could hear their footsteps on the stairs now.
Elrond did not move even when his mother-in-law and the wizard re-entered the room. He had his back to them so he could not see their defeated expressions, but Glorfindel could and his heart broke. The blond elf flicked his gaze up to Elrond's face, which was still very blank. After a second the

I fell in love with you.
Nothing will stop me,
From winning your heart.
You will see me,
You will love me,
You will know me,
As I know wish you.
Nothing hurts me more,
Than seeing you in pain.
Crying over fear of life,
For threats have been sent your way.
I'll find them and kill them,
And the threats will go away.
I'll take my life before I lose you,
I'll end the pain of your loss.
For the many years I lived,
Have I once felt this strong.
I want to hold you,
Make you feel safe.
You gave me emotion,
And restored my coloured sight,
You have kept the demon at bay,
I've been alone for many years,
No emotion and no fears.
Then I met you,
And things have all changed.
I gave you blood,
You gave me yours,
And with this exchange,
Your life will change,
I will know what you think,
And the same will go for you.
Nothing secret will tear us apart,
I will be by your side,
I don't care what's in the past,
I only care if you are alright.
