Loss of Me
from Final Fantasy IX
lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
This is a tale, a tale of a man,
iron of glove, and blade in his hand.
Devoted his life to false faility,
duty or death, and blind loyalty.
This is the way, he remained to this day,
`til a young woman showed him the way.
Made him realize, he had his own will
his inner self doubt he was able to kill.
Ill give my life to thee,
my love for all eternity.
And though it may be hard to see,
You grieve for the Loss of Me
If we separate and then,
Ill fight a thousand men.
Just to be by your side,
with my courage and pride.
This is a tale of the Queens Royal Guard,
who over the years, her heart has grown hard.
Lives out her life, on the Queens behalf,
choosing the drawn out war beaten path.
This is the way, she remained to this day,
til a bold knight, showed her the way.
Made her realize, to speak her own mind
and the soul underneath was both gentle an
Red Velvet, Black VelvetRose Lalonde is not familiar with adults. Her mother only invites friends for "tea" on occasion, and they all might as well be the same woman. They form a blurred parade in her mind, a never ending procession of socialites toeing the line of middle-age. She sees their different outfits, different press-dried hairstyles, but always, always that same copy-pasted smile fresh from the school of passive aggressive knocks. Oh, what a charming dress, I remember having one like that as a little girl. Oh, you're still writing your little stories? Good for you, it's good to spread out of those dark little horror books you always read. Little, little, little- always the operative word.Red Velvet, Black Velvet3 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Mr. Egbert is different. For one thing he is, as his name may suggest, a man. Her experience with older men is almost non-existent, and from her point of view they might as well be a different species from her entirely: silent, rugged beasts stalking jungles of business suits and automobiles. He does indeed

I've been lucky for a while.
As a little kid, I wanted to get picked for something in class and the teacher just happened to pick me. I got the winning run in a little league game because the other team committed seventeen errors in a single play. A prize machine once paid out all its tickets to me.
It didn't happen with everything. And sometimes, on the things I wanted the most, it never seemed to work. But when I was really focused and relaxed, it was like things bended my way. It got really weird when I wanted a personal fridge in my bedroom and it just appeared one day. So far as my mom was concerned, I'd had it for years.
I thought of my friend with black hair instead of blond hair (like he always wanted) and he came to school with it one day. I always happened upon the biggest secrets in Zelda, I never died in any of the bullet hell shooters I loved, and I always won in matches verses friends.
I was humble about it with all the dirty looks I

Daddy, why did you eat my fries?
I bought them, and they were mine.
But you ate them, yeah, you ate my fries...
And I cried, but you didn't see me cry.
Do you even love me?
Well, I wish you'd show it,
'Cause I wouldn't know it.
What kind of dad eats his daughter's fries,
And doesn't look her in the eyes?
Daddy, there were tears there.
If you saw them would you even care?

So Finn and Jake
Set out to find a new home.
It's gonna be tough
For a kid and a dog on their own.
Here's a little house,
Aw, Finn's stickin' his foot in.
Well, that's a bad idea dude
Cause now that bird thinks you're a jerk, Finn!
And now they're chillin' on the side of a hill!
And thinkin' livin' in a cloud'd be totally thrillin'
Unless they find something inside
Like a mean cloud man and his beautiful cloud bride.
A beehive, oh nooooooooo!
Don't put your foot in there, guy!
Y'all tried that before,
And you know it didn't turn out right!
Big shell, go inside.
Look around, it seems alright.
Frog jumps out, and barfs a tiger!
Throwin' down potions for food and fire!
You know you should have stayed
And fought that sexy vampire lady.
Jake was feeling terrified,
He was super scared of her vampire bite.
Which is understandable
'Cause vampires are really powerful.
And burnt out on dealing with mortals.
Why are you so mean?

Darren kicked at the desk with his feet and balled his hands. Shannon gave a smug look and laughed to her friends when the teacher turned away. He fumed through his nose and glared.
It had been group day in class and nothing had gone right for Darren. He liked making jokes in his usual circle of friends. But, from the moment he stepped into the room, Shannon Gray was on him and he had no idea why.
The teacher had been at the door. When Darren walked through, Shannon gave it a push from behind. Because the teacher saw Darren right next to the door and "good, reliable Shannon" had confirmed he did it, despite all his protests, he was moved from his usual group.
But Shannon was relentless. She kept making up stuff which she claimed Darren was doing and the teacher just ate it all up until Darren had been exiled from groups to the time-out at the back of the room to do demerit writing.
As he sat there and imagined wringing the neck of a little voodoo doll in his hands, a

“Standard teleportation. It was the fastest and safest way.” Shuri explained in a nonchalant tone.
“Telepor-… What the hell just happened, where was I- how did you get there- how’d you know I was- who was that, what was he-“ Dreyden asked all at once.
“Come inside. I will explain.” Shuri helped him up again, and led him back into the cabin so that he could sit down. She brought him a glass of water from the sink, and sat down in the chair opposite from him, and tried to decide how to answer his questions.
“That man… his name is Damian Nightfall. The place you were in is his mansion- he calls it Cruento Manor, and it is… the last place on earth any human should be.” She began.

with haunting sound,
And shadows that crawl
across the ground...
Skulls drift through
And hiding wolves
give hunting calls.
that twist and turn,
hard to discern...
Puzzles that lead
And portraits where
ghost sisters hide.
Four Poes gone
now fires alight,
Reveal a path
kept out of sight.
In lower rooms
a phantom waits,
Beyond the locked
and final gates.
With bow and sword
the evil felled,
at last dispelled.
A light descends
takes Link afar,
To the place
where sages are.

"I would assume it's pretty self-explanatory, but if you really need me to tell you..."
"No, but what are you doing with it?"
"Also self-explanatory. Really D., are you feeling alright? Take a blow to the head recently?"
"Alright, fine." Izm spread his arms wide, gesturing grandly to the tiny setup- a giant black speaker sat on the ground behind him, the brand name splashed across the front in white lettering. A rat's nest of cables plugged into the thing, slithering across the ground to link themselves into the various brightly colored boxes at Izm's feet. One cable came up and plugged into the cardinal-red guitar slung low at his hips, held in place by a thick black strap looped around his neck.
"I'm starting a rock band!"
Silence met the statement for all of thirty seconds.
"... Are you fucking serious?"
Izm cracked up. "Pffff nooo. I won all this in a

Set to the "Super Smash Bros Brawl Main Theme"
original lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
I once knew a man,
Who was brave and true,
Righted every wrong,
How I wanted to be him.
Dreams of a man,
Who never given in,
Fought for all that's pure,
A long time ago.
But as the hourglass forever drains,
The brightness of that soul burns nevermore.
Dreams from another age,
Call out to comfort me,
But I cannot hear the voices anymore.
Alone with the thoughts that I hold.
I hear a voice inside
call "Where has my hero gone?
Why did he leave?
I really would like to see him before I go."
What has befallen me?
Selfish and blind,
Maybe you shall see that man again.
Chernobyl MindThere is something both ethereal and comforting about a tree, and even more so about a forest. The arboreal giants seem to be so utterly everlasting, a static reminder of reality as it swirls and gyrates. They stand rooted firmly into the ground, columns of wood and bark. Utterly oblivious to the changing of the world around them, they simply go on, heedless of everything around.Chernobyl Mind7 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
I long ago decided that trees were a lot like people. Both trees and people don't really care for what's going on unless it directly affects them. But I also long ago decided that trees were better. Whereas people don't care because it would inconvenience them to, trees lack the capacity for caring. I like to believe that if they could, trees would help the world actively. But they can't, so they don't.
I spend a lot of time in this place that they call the Red Forest. I always laugh when someone says that...it's the only forest in the Zone, why bother specifying it as Red? It isn't Red anymore though. I remem

The young green garbed hero of Hyrule walked along the corridors of the Smash Mansion with a nervous look on his face. His eyes shined with excitement and fear at the same time. Adrenaline was pumping through his veins mercilessly as he neared his destination.
'I have to tell her how I feel...I owe her that much.' He thought to himself. He hooked left in the passageway. In his gloved left hand was a letter of sorts, it was signed to Samus Aran, the intergalactic bounty hunter feared by practically everyone in the mansion itself. His thoughts had been bent on her for longer than he used to allow, now he simply could not resist thinking of the dangerous, yet beautiful bounty huntress.
His thoughts reverted to her gorgeous blue sapphire eyes, her long, soft hair. Her pale skin made Link, among others, melt. Link found himself thinking h

from maze of trees,
with gentle breeze.
In hidden corner,
a familiar place,
Where once he looked
on Saria's face.
Before a tear
had chance to fall,
A mysterious stranger
leapt from the wall.
A song he taught
to remember well,
A message too
he had to tell.
"Time's a river
beware its flow,
For where it leads
is hard to know."
A flash of light,
and then he fled.
Up broken stair
Link hooked his way,
Into a temple
from ancient day.
Now he stood
in hall of green,
Crumbling and beautiful,
yet seldom seen.

Or at least an existence, anyway.
He stayed in the motel until he managed to find the cheapest apartment complex in town, with one opening he could afford on the minimal budget his father had left him with, and the little income he had once he’d found a small family owned diner just desperate enough to hire him as a dish washer.
“Here I am…” Dreyden said to no one, flopping over on the bare lumpy mattress in his tiny, depressing excuse for an apartment. “A dish washer living in one ugly little room in the most run-down complex in this middle ‘a nowhere town with nothin’ left to live for. Chloe’s gonna be so proud.” He sighed, staring up at the cracks in the ceiling.
Well, he thought. That’s life.
He laid there for a good while, feeling like death itself, until he finally decided he needed to get out.
