SOU IU ATSUKAI KOKORO-ETE
You sang and started to dance like you were Miku in her concert. All of your friends would laugh and enjoy your short performance. Of course they all loved your voice. Well...maybe not in real life, but here you are really good.
Just as you sang and danced, you heard an obnoxious laugh...though you wouldn't really call it obnoxious.
"Kesesesese~ Look at our lil' superstar here!" It was Gilbert! Duh, who else could it be? After all, he's the only guy who laughs like that in school. Aaah, he's so cute. Actually, he's your crush. Ohoho, you have such a HUGE crush on him.
There ya go. You try to hide your tomato red face from him. The Prussian just smirks at you and asks "What's the matter,____? Am I wrong that you're so good at singing?" Oh gosh. Your cheeks heat up. It feels like there's fire burning 'em turning your cheeks really, really, really red. Ask Spain and he might mistake you as one of his tomatoes.

I can only imagine some of the things you would be thinking, but they would all stem from one rationalization: that what was happening defied logic.
To make sure we are on the same page, let me give you some quick facts about the Bible: The Bible was written over a span of about 1500 years (from 1445 BC to 95 AD) in 3 continents, in 3 languages, by 40 authors, and has 66 books. It's mostly a collection of letters written to churches. We can verify the dates of the books of the Bible through the efforts of historians, linguists, and archeologists.

LoZ - Warm Hearths, Warmer HeartsIt was a sight the young queen was more than familiar with; children gathering just outside the castle gates to play in the aftermath of Hyrule's first snow of the year. From the frosted window of her chambers, Zelda smiled as she watched distant images of young boys and girls prancing about in the white stuff, tossing snowballs at one another, and doubtlessly irritating the guards who were keeping watch that day. It made her heart glad to see those children enjoying themselves in ways she herself had not often gotten the chance to experience; it was improper for young princesses to frolic about in the filthy slush, after all.LoZ - Warm Hearths, Warmer Hearts2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
She sighed quietly and returned to her book, its pages illuminated by the crackling flames of a nearby hearth. When she had her own children, she thought, she would never fill their heads with such silly notions of royal propriety.
A knock on her door interrupted her a moment later, however, and with a frown Zelda stood to answer it, setting her

Zelink Family - Midnight SnackThey say that parents quickly learn to attend to the cries of their children. This would explain why Link, who was known for his heavy sleeping and who was quite a challenge to wake up in the mornings, instantly shot open his eyes when he heard little Daphnes' familiar wail. Of course, Zelda had heard it, too, but they had established that, barring circumstances, they would alternate taking care of the little boy when he cried in the night, and she had been the one to do it the night before.Zelink Family - Midnight Snack3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
After sitting up and rubbing the sleep away from his eyes, Link gave his wife a look signifying that he had the situation under control (or so he hoped). Then, he pulled himself out of bed and walked over to the other side of the house, where the baby lay in a tearful heap in his crib. The hero-turned-father smiled sadly as he picked him up.
"What's the matter?" he asked in a quiet voice, holding his son to his shoulder and patting his back. "I

Heroes! Chiron said when we were all gathered on the edge of the woods. Everyone knows the rules. The stream is the frontier and the whole forest can be used. All magic items are allowed. The flag must be displayed in a visible way and it can't have more than two keepers; remembering the keepers have to be thirty-three feet away from it. Prisoners can be disarmed, but not tied or gagged. It's not allowed to kill nor maim. I'll be judge and doctor on the battle field. Good luck to you all!
We shouted and clapped while each team went to its side of the woods; the Hunters following Thalia and the campers following me, Annabeth and Jason. Our team hadn't exactly a captain. We all agreed Jason and I should lead, but I wouldn't get anything without Annabeth's plans, this is why she was leading as well.
I was going to suggest putting the flag on Zeus's Fist, as usual, but then I remembered the Hunters got that side of the

Though the boy had just passed his third birthday, he already considered himself something of a bug catching master - he knew all of best places to find them, from the blades of tall grass near the ranch to the colorful forest flowers by the spring. He scanned the ground for a moment longer; then, he saw a small rock nearby, and with a proud little grin he crawled over and lifted it. His face lit up in delight when he found the biggest, shiniest beetle he'd ever seen, and he grabbed it, holding it loosely in his tiny hands as he rose to his feet and ran back towards his playmate.(LoZ) Playmates2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Her grip firm on the stone wall, she frowned; she knew such hapless creatures would be no match for the realm's warriors and their blades, but the mere fact that the monsters in the area had increased almost exponentially since her arrival was a most worrisome sign. She was well aware that evil energies begat evil creatures, and she knew that there was only one evil that could have generated this much energy in such a short amount of time.(LoZ) Fear No Evil2 years ago in Romance More Like This
She lifted her gaze to the horizon, and there she saw her fears confirmed. A dark cloud had crept its way just past the mountains, threatening to cover Eldin Province with its shadow and, eventually, the whole of the realm. There was no mistaking it - Demise and his army of demons were approaching, and it would only be a matter of days before they arrived. Though she had planned to call upon

I took her hand and pulled her with me to the Half-Blood Hill. I thought I'd see at least thirty demigods there, for what I saw in my dream, but apparently or the majority left for the holidays like in our camp, or many didn't come. The point is there were only about ten, twelve. Jason was in from of everybody, and they all kept distance from Pelos, who was now completely awake and looked at them suspicious.

The stuff animal form of the country's prince, Pokota as his friends often called him, had been daydreaming uptop a tree. He looked down at the woman that had called for him. "Hmmm? What is it Valerie?" he looked down at the deep red headed woman running towards him.
The woman was dressed in a blue shirt and a purple skirt, her hair flowing down her back. She stopped to catch her breath for a moment. "There are some people that have just arrived, they claim to be friends of yours. A priestess and a blonde swordsman say they here on account of Lina Inverse."

They were on the outskirts of the city. A full moon shone silver light down, illuminating everything. To Katara's happiness, it was next to a lake. Bending a glob of water into the semblance of a mirror, she admired the outfit she'd chosen earlier that day.

Periphery II, by Periphery.Periphery II, by Periphery.3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I am very excited today to be bringing this review to you all. It's been over two years since the last Periphery album, but before I dive into this monster, lets learn a little something about the band.
Periphery is a progressive metal band hailing from Maryland, USA. The band is mainly focused around the song ideas that sole member Misha 'Bulb' Mansoor writes and releases bit-by-bit beforehand, and then ultimately appearing later as a fully fleshed out track in actual Periphery full lengths or EP's. The band is one of the pioneering bands that coined the term 'djent' which is a tone that bands before Periphery used such as Meshuggah, and Sikth. This term is used for bands with very low end guitars, preferably 7 and 8-string guitars that incorporate these growling riffs and infectious grooves that will get some part of your body moving. Periphery take this sound, and add their own spin on it with some decent songwriting, incredible musicianship, as well as tone of other tric
