Chapter 1: No one could ever stop it now...
Under the darkness of night, the old run down hospital's long winding hall didn't seem to have an end. Guns drawn, Sam and Dean moved swiftly and meticulously through the maze of corridors, carefully making their way over debris that littered the floor as they searched the rooms one by one for the source of the haunting that had brought them out there in the first place. After refusing to play their role as vessels in the final battle between Heaven & Hell, the brothers were determined to find their own way out of the mess they'd made; choosing to fight for themselves rather than give in to the angels and demons that were trying to tear them apart for their own purpose. Despite being wanted by both sides, the threat of a looming Apocalypse and the fact that all odds were against them coming out of it alive, going back to hunting and keeping busy seemed like the best distraction... if only to keep the crushing weight off their shou

"Javik, I'm going now."
Liara was dressed for a night out of the house. Her outfit was simple. It did not show excess skin, contrary to the popular style of the day, but the wine colored cloth fit snugly against her body. Javik stood defiantly in the middle of the room, his hand balled into a fist to keep it from reaching out and running along the curve of her hip.
He would treat this like any other battle. And he refused to show weakness.
"This is a pointless activity," he said firmly.
In his own cycle, people would back down when he used that voice. But Liara only fought back harder. She stood just out of his reach, placing her own hands on her hips. "Shepard and Tali will be here for only a few more days, and Tali needs to relax. This is her first night out without her family since the baby came." Her voice was calm and quiet, using the same tone she used when explaining something to their children.
Javik stole a quick glance behind him at the two girls playing happily tog

There she sat in a lonely and dark room.
Tears falling from the news she just heard.
The pain and anger she felt freezing her to the chair.
The not knowing of what was to come was hard to bear.
Seeing her son, explosions of all feeling hard to control.
The look in his eyes when he looked at her, was the question why.
Her heart ached, an answer she could not give to him.
Standing up, she took him in her arms and they cried together.
When the crying was over, the words they spoke were soft and unsure.
The decisions were made with caution and careful planning.
The unknown and fear chilling both of them to the very core.
The steps taken from that day forward, they walked them together.
Each step they took together, they took them with love and hope.
The mother with her love, courage, understanding and patience was always there.
The son with all his anger, confusion, doubt, fear , and love held to her tightly.
The mother holding him in her arms, took all of his feel

How did I get here? It seemed like just yesterday I was in my early teens, battling trainers for the thrill of it, meeting new people and growing up. Stopping Team Rocket and becoming Champion of the Johto region had just been part of the fun. Yet it made the adventure even more fun for me, and I never regretted a minute of it. In fact, it opened so many doors for me to meet even more people and become stronger. So, I had to ask again, how did I get here?
It was one in the afternoon on a quiet Monday; the grandfather clock down the hall chimed once, and then the house became silent once more. Hibiki had to be downstairs doing somethingwhat, I had no idea. But there was no noise, nothing to break the silence that clouded our house. Normally I would have been up and about by now, but I would probably not get out of the house today. Or maybe tomorrow.
I had to admit, I was slightly embarrassed to still be living with a roommate at the age of twenty

The early spring flowers
Turning their faces up to greet me
As lazy bugs grumbled at the motors
Purring in the distance
My legs flexed and stretched
To cover ground
I kept time to the beat of my heart
And the intake of breath
And smiled at the others
Who came out to soak
In the weak, but welcome rays

To feel the spring in my step
Like a pogo stick on a hot summer sidewalk
The pulling and bunching of muscles
Like well-oiled pistons
And the fluidity of movement
Like a birds carefree swoop across the sky
To feel laughter like blood in my veins
And summer like a never-ending melody
That sings, sings in my ears
Like the twilight call of crickets
And the cool of a sharp moonlit night
To feel passion like sunlight on my skin
And to burn with a fierce desire
Like pitch in a roaring campfire
To feel the surety of black and white
And not know shades of grey
Or longing unanswered
Or loss immeasurable
Oh, to be young

Luna ruined it all. She told her mother about our location out of her before she could leave. Knowing that hurt, too. I actually trusted her.
So we were unceremoniously awoken, as the dawn finally arrived, by that Alicorn Queen. And she proceeded to kill me.
"Celestia Harmonia! Get up immediately!" was our alarm. We scrambled to our feet, hardly daring to believe our ears.
"M-Mother? How di-did thou findeth us?" Tia stuttered.
"Be silent, you disobedient, reckless, foolish filly! Thy good sister Luna informed me of thy destination! Thou art to return to Canterlot at once!"
"N-no, Mother. I am staying here with Discord."
"What didst thou say? Dost thou truly wish to ruin thy mother's celebration of victory with thy impulsive flight?"

Arthur's phone buzzes, stopping the click-clack sound of his finger flying across the computer's keyboard. Glancing towards it, he sighs, and reaches for it. Flipping it open, he says into the receiver, "Hello, this is Arthur. Who is this?"
"Ohonhonhonhon, so you finally decided to pick up, eh Iggy~?" The familiar voice of Francis sounded through the cellphone.
"What do you want, you bloody frog?" Arthur sighs, pressing his fingers against the bridge of his nose.
Francis huffs, clearly irritated. "I don't want to tell you anymore."
"You blood frog! Tell me right now or I swear-"
Arthur's cut off by a familiar voice. "Oh, Francis, stop teasing him." (Name)'s voice comes through the phone. "Hey Artie, I was wondering if you could come home early. I...have something to tell you." Her voice falters slightly, making Arthur's green eyes narrow.

Somewhere...in the ocean
There is a whirlpool...that is...frozen
I no longer had anything keeping me bound to this world
You were my love, you were my chain, and my heart was a link
And I couldn't bear the thought of never seeing your face anymore
So my knees gave, as I let my thoughts break, and I forced myself to sink
Somewhere...in the darkness
There is a soul...which became faithless
All those memories down the drain
I feel the bitterness of hope
While my tears rain
I cannot cope
Somewhere...in the depths
There is a spark...cradled by emptiness
My pain will always remain in time
As I never wanted to let you go
But I still got left behind
Only to dwell in remorse
Somewhere...along the path
Came a point...where I couldn't stand
I knew there would be no moving on
And there would be no going back
Because I can't stand the thought
Of potentially losing any of that
Somewhere...in my mind
There is a time...when I loved my

I slid my hand between the sheets.
I will lie before I wake,
I know the Devil, my soul he'll take.
Guilt and Anger fill me up,
Hands are shaking, I've had enough.
This went on for way too long,
All my thoughts of sleep are gone.
The eyes on the walls watch me now,
The room seems alive somehow.
My eyes are wide open still,
Someone shoot me, I've had my fill.
God is good, God is great,
With Him now I feel no hate.
I rest easy with Him here,
Always now, I feel Him near.

tearing the foundations
ripping lovers apart
happens far more
than it really should
when things turn
and loyalty changes
for mixed messages
and a venom
running in the veins
how love cools
and turns to pain
where no one wins
and things change
thought it would last
thought it was meant to be
but things happen
just like to you and me

My father once told me that life is supposed to be a struggle
And that everyone has their own specific type of hustle.
Whether it be working in an office or stacking products on a shelf.
Naturally we all share the same aim of accumulating wealth.
He also told me that nothing is promised in this life time.
When you least expect it the man upstairs will throw you a life line.
Something or someone that will give you a reason to continue.
Awaken the hidden belief and talent that law dormant within you.
He then told me that happiness and success are short lived.
In time your name will both appear and disappear from life's shortlist.
At some point you will feel like the whole world is against you.
No matter what you do some people will just always resent you.
Accept their venomously kind words but never take them to heart.
The show must go on and no one else but you can play your part.
Lastly he said that you must find a balance between work and leisure
Because those priceless mome

Charles E. Kunkle Jr (fraterchaos)
I'd like to ask everyone a question, and I want you to give an honest answer... not to me, but to yourself.
If someone is keeping a secret from you, is that not a very good indication that they are trying to do something unpleasant to you, or trying to accomplish something you would not like?
Think about it... if they are not "up to something" and if that "something" isn't something bad for you, why would they wish to keep it secret from you?
I personally believe it is perfectly safe to say, that anytime somebody is keeping you in the dark, it MUST be for nefarious purposes.
You might be thinking... ok, but what is this all about? Well, I'll tell you.
Yesterday (Monday July 16, 2012) the Democrats in The Senate of the United States tried to pass something called the Disclose Act. They were doing this as a response to the recent decision by the Supreme Court that "Corporations are people" and ther

It's hard to remember that sometimes when a door shuts, it just stays closed. There's no other consequence. No other opportunity. Just one more way you can't go. One more person that you can't follow. Sometimes, you're just as stuck as you feel so it doesn't matter if the earth travels one million six hundred thousand miles through space every day. You are in the same place as yesterday so all that other movement is just superfluous. It's not bringing anyone closer together. It's not going toward any sort of destination. There is no end. No point. It's just ceaseless movement through an ever-expanding universe that only keeps getting bigger until you're simply a tiny pinpoint that feels absolutely alone. And meaningless. Unnecessary. And all of this just makes it feel overwhelmingly true.
The truth is most of the roads here only go one way.
Some days, you believe you can get out of here and live somebody else's life in some other place and with all of th

So cold and pure on the merciless streets of the city.
She walks alone.
Her legs slightly wobbly.
Visible in her beautiful amber eyes shinning from the citys blinding lights.
She stops in a dark alley.
A sinful needle drawn out of her bag.
Needle piercing through her pale and flawless skin sending in the vicious poison to her core.
She cant take it.
Lifes too hard.
People are uncaring.
She suddenly starts to hurry.
Somebody is waiting for her.
Rushing through the noisy streets.
She stops in a park.
Waiting for her.
She approaches him.
Hugs him tenderly.
Holds him in her arms as her legs collapse.
Her world is spinning and slowly fading away.
Her last words.
You are the only person I wanted to see before I died I love you
His eyes wide.
He shakes her softly.
But its no use.
Her eyes are closed.
To be never opened again.
