This is my recent project. After stumbling across the article "How to Create Your Own Fantasy World" I became hooked. The article contains 17 steps. I'm uplaoding the first three steps. It is not very detailed yet but I will work on it.
I'm open for ideas, comments and so on...
The ideas are all my own. Do not use them without my permission!
How to Make Your Own Fantasy World
1. Name your place
> Assastor [The main country], Omara [Country beyond the Great Sea]
2. The inhabitants
> Normal Humans [Kings, queens, lords, guards, knights, farmers, craftsmen and so on...]. They are either members of the different houses/clans or are without a house and live in one of the free cities. The members of the Black Guard called "Black Jackets" are without a house after they join in order to make them neutral towards the conflicts between the clans.
> Special kinds of humans [Seers, who are able to catch glimpses of the future and shamans, who have healin powers]. These people a

The pain is excruciating. The sun beams into my eyes as I lay on my back in the muddy field. A light rain shower has started, and the humid air slowly drains out any hydration I may have had in my body. I can taste the dry hot air on my even dryer tongue. The august sky is beautiful though; I see that, even through this pain.
I hear the muffled sounds of people, or at least I think that they are people, laughing, screaming, and yelling! The soccer field that I was on just a few minutes ago has in an instant turned into a whirly unidentifiable mess. The trees that once surrounded me now look like tall, scary creatures. And the sky. This august sky looks like fire. Beautiful fire, but fire nonetheless.
I raise my hand to my face and immediately feel the welt growing on my forehead. I think that I may be bleeding as well.
"You okay boy," I hear someone ask. I force myself to attempt sit up

What a dreary year
She remembers it's her birthday
Checks the rearview mirror
Of her Lexus that she drives into the parking space
That's reserved especially for her
She walks into the building
Greets her employees
Who flit from task to task
Like a swarm of bees
She sits down in her office in the swivel chair
Nothing's there to remind her of home
Well, her colleagues all respected her
But their false smiles all affected her
Behind her back, there is nothing but envy and hate
She's a Capricorn
She works hard every day
Always works, never plays
Gets promoted, gets paid
Such a Capricorn
Works so hard every day
Ask her why, she can't say 'cause
Maybe even she doesn't know anymore
From December to December
Yet another year
He remembers it's his birthday
As he drinks his beer
Reads a letter from his mother
And pulls out again a 20 dollar bill, year after year
Tuning his guitar backstage, a joint in hand
He wonders how long it'll take this time to land
He gets up with
Tragic Airport ExperiencesWhen you are leaving for your holidays and travelling by airplane, you have to be present there two hours before departure. But if you want to avoid traffic you'll have to leave one to two hours earlier. (In our case it was two hours). So that meant we were 4 hours(!!) too early at the airport. What on earth you're supposed to do in those 4 hours, well, nobody knows. We decided to have something to eat first.Tragic Airport Experiences4 years ago in Comedy More Like This
Because of my irrational fear of escalators I was forced to take the stairs. Eventually I want to enter the restaurant there was only one problem: I hadn't seen the door. That was actually not that strange because it was a glass, very, very clean door, which was supposed to open automatically Well, NOT! So I just walked into that door with an enormous BENG! The staff, all the other people on the stairs and all the people inside the restaurant looked at me. My face heated, of course, and, the worst thing of this all, I was being laughed at by the entire staff

After the Lockdown
After experiencing a night full of intense encounters, we believe that history repeated itself while we were locked inside. Witnessing a possession was without a doubt disturbing, and the lost soul of a murdered woman who made contact also had an affect on me. With each of us receiving an attack, we all endured our own kind of nightmare very much like the former patients trapped within the Asylum.
Now, I wait once again for my chance to investigate on my own Ghost Adventures.

Set up for Lockdown
With the Exterior Static Night-vision Camera set to go, Aaron joined us in unloading the minivan full of camera gear.
Zak grunted as he lifted a heavy black case,
"Geez, what's in this thing, a body?"
Overhearing his comment, I snickered as I assisted them.
Nick filmed Zak near the entrance,
"Dusk is arriving, so we're getting locked in. Keith, you ready?"
"How about you guys?" Zak asked us.
"Born ready." I replied,
"I'm ready." Aaron proclaimed,
Nick gave a thumbs up,
After several minutes of collecting the gear, we knuckle-pounded Keith and watched as he shut the door. The only light we could see was the light from Nick's shoulder camera.
Hearing it lock on the opposite side resurfaced my excitement from my first lockdown with the guys.
"All right, let's establish a base and call out the X cams."
Once everything was set, Zak checked over his list of Static Night-vision Cameras.
"Before we got locked in, we set an X camera in the Cemetery. Doris and

Skye followed her father through the doors of the surgical wing in silence. Padraic kept his face forward and expressionless. The silence played heavily on Skye's nerves and she wished to break it. At the same time, she was afraid to. What if her father told her that Alex wouldn't make it? Would she be able to keep walking down this corridor if she knew only sadness waited at the other end? So she kept quiet, her fingers fidgeting within the pockets of her jacket.
As they neared the end of the hall, Skye noticed they were heading toward the recovery rooms. A spark of hope lit within her and she turned to her father. His smile beamed down at her.
"Daddy?" she asked, her eyes wide.
"He's going to be fine," he said. "It was tricky for a while there, but he pulled through. He has an amazing will to live."
"Thank-you, daddy!" she cried, throwing her arms around his waist.

I'll have you for my own
You'll be at my command
When I get you alone
Sashaying down the street
I flick my eyes towards yours
You glance and feel complete
And you're drawn to the source
Feet walk of their own accord
You're like a moth to my flame
Get ready to be adored
And after, you won't be the same
You'll never be the same
You're gonna be
I'll make you lose your mind
I'll kiss you
Until you lose track of time
Before this passion that reigns
If I were you
I'd let this, let this
Be your surrender
You're already tamed...
But really, who can tell
The mistress from the slave?
I feel that spark as well
And I can't be saved
I meant to crush your heart
Toss you around like a toy
But I can't play my part
I'm done with the ploy
When I hold you in my arms
I'll never know why you're there
Can't help but feel such alarm
'Cause I took you by force, unawares
You didn't stand a chance
Remove your shackles, your chai

FT ISLAND.BIG BANG.SHINee.CN BLUE.Super Junior.DBSK.Park JungMin.KARA.2NE1.
The Korea's top tens were on and these were familiar artists that showed up with good marks for these past weeks,but....recently a new band had been showing up.One i wasn't all too interested in.Didn't listen to them and don't know anything about them.
For me not to be interested in a band like them was considered surprising. You see at my school if I mentioned a new artist or song, they would immediately listen to it.
I was the one to talk to about music in our school. New music styles. What Genre is best right now. Also who was the member to look out for.
This week it's Park Jung Min. His single is Not Alone and was showed as 3rd single in the charts last week. 4th this week. Everyone asks me for music when they get bored of an Artist or want to know more.
Top Tens this week was what i expected except for the new ban

The silence was unbearable.
No one was talking. Who died?
"So... Hey" The golden haired boy tried to break the uncomfortable silence.
Sasuke stayed silent.
"I'm pretty surprised you let me in... I was expecting a butler to come slap me round the face with a glove." The blonde boy admitted.
"I don't have any butlers you stereotypical bastard." The raven haired boy muttered.
"Ha-ha! Really? Don't I feel stupid now..." Naruto chuckled.
"Did you want something?" Sasuke stated agitatedly.
"Oh, right... I came to apologise, I know I shouldn't have just dove right into it, I mean it's not like we're great friends..."
"No, we're not..."
"I, uh... I do know... How you feel, that is."
Sasuke seemed even more aggravated now, but at least this time he didn't kick up such a fuss.
"Can we talk about it somewhere a little more comfortable maybe?" The blonde asked.
There was a short pause, and Sasuke sighed "Come up."

Reviewing the Evidence
After a few weeks of gathering our evidence, we traveled to Arizona and meet Bryan Abel, a video review specialist. He's studied photos, video and EVPs for paranormal evidence, so we decided to show him some of our best evidence.
We sat around the oval table with television screens at the end, we took turns showing our evidence while Aaron and Nick filmed us.
Zak spoke first, explaining the footage on screen.
"Now while we were doing the walkthrough, Keith Caswell told us about a woman who we later found out was named Diana and she was attacked and killed by a male patient. She doesn't like men so we sent Aaron inside her room and not long after we left, he felt a forcible shove after he asked if she wanted him out."
Bryan nodded, intrigued.
"Then our friend, Aura," indicating at me, "did her own EVP session and caught some intelligent responses."
I spoke up to add in my side,
"When the guys came to regroup, I stood up to walk out of the room, then I was pulled b

It's like there is no one better than you in this world
And I know if I look to my right I'll see someone better
And if I look to my left I'll find someone even nicer than you
Whatever goes in my mind, it happens to be about you
Nothing seems to stay their forever
It's like you became my drug of everything
It's like you're the reason I wake up now
The only thing I regret so much is you
You aren't worth it
But yet my thought always drifts to thinking of you
Your always on my mind
It seems somehow you became my drug
I could have sworn that I never wanted any of this
But you and your stupid signs
You brought me to where I am now
But your making me stronger
I'm feeling better by the moment
I know that one day
I will be looking back and saying
What was I thinking
Someone else is already taking over your place in my heart
Cause by now I know that your not worth it
I know one day I'll be fully over you
By time someone else would rep

not to read this
we could both be dead.
Or you might like that, ever the
terminal romantic, ready for the drama
of things not moving.
I'll keep this short.
Simply that I hate the thought of
you not being there,
wherever you are, or who you
are being, or for whom
The days behind us
have become adjacent,
so although ahead we may be undone,
your life and mine, though imagination,
have become compressed
your image burned.
So, if one day you should find yourself
Falling down the rabbit hole or
Lost in some abyss, never to return
Know that in every second spent (and gone)
there is a Love
of everything you ever were.

Second to pulling the trigger, I think that was the single best feeling I'd ever had in a long time and when he started screaming at me, blood pouring from his squashed nose and the gap made by his lost tooth, I was downright considering doing it again. The blue twi'lek on his arm, fragged out of her head on spice was now trying to comfort Javoran who moments before had been busy beating the kid at his feet mercilessly. Useless. I didn't step in when Javoran grabbed hold of her and shoved her hard enough she went end-over-tea-kettle over a chair and sprawled on the floor. But he went to lay a hand on me and I hitched my fingers in my belt.
"Wouldn't do that, Chief," warned him. He's lucky we worked for the same fella and I liked my butt alive.

A tall, dark-haired man watched those two troublemakers who were on his land again as they were leaving. He got a strange feeling from them as if he knew one of them. The short-haired one seemed to be familiar.
And then he heard the name Stiles. At that moment he recalled everything. Of course he knew him. It was Stiles, the boy without a mom. Derek closed his eyes for a moment to be able to recall that night.
He had been ten when he had been wandering in a forest at night because Laura had teased him and hadn't wanted to let him be. So he changed into a wolf and ran away for couple hours. He knew his parents wouldn't look for him; they weren't worried about him. They had never been. Derek wasn't an ordinary boy; he was a young wolf, who could have taken care of himself more than anyone else.
Suddenly he saw the night right in front of him again.
He had just been running not far from the road, when he had heard something. He stopped and sniffed. He was sure there was someone

I watch you dance from afar
with people watching, people laughing
Why do I keep thinking about you
when I don't even know who you are?
Ablaze from a vision so enchanting
I can't sleep---your feet tiptoe through all of my nightmares
All night I torture myself with sweet impossibilities
'til I'm too weak to fight for the truth
Is it a crime?
Fascination with someone you've only seen twice?
Infatuation with someone you've only seen three times?
Is it a crime
that I want to press your lips to mine?
You waste your beauty on the weak,
on the common, the unworthy
If you could see what I could give you
I hope that you would change your mind
I'd sacrifice it all to have you
Throw my life away to start one with you
We'd both be free from this hell
if you would just come willingly
and succumb to the unholy truth
Why do I wake whispering your name?
I'll never know you, never hold you
Yet I have failed to put out the flames

And I will climb into your petals,

*Author notes available at the beginning of chapter one*
Note from the translator: This is not a word for word translation. So there will be words missing, or words added when comparing the original. I tried my best not to change the contents. BUT, sometimes I just had to. The thing is that Kyoux plays a lot with form and tense, and that made it that much more difficult to translate. I wanted to leave as much as possible as it was in the original so that the atmosphere and her writing style were reflected. And that might get English people confused sometimes, as it probably would be written differently if the correct English were used. Of course you'll find mistakes in the text, so please, instead of mocking my language skills, just sit back and enjoy a beautiful love story. I decided to try and translate it because I adore their story so much that it would be a pity for other
