She opened her eyes, and saw that the Enderman had backed away slightly, and was now holding out a hand to help her up. The blond stared. What... Why on earth? In utter confusion, she grabbed it's hand and let out a yelp as it hoisted her to her feet with ease and held out the diamond block she'd abandoned when she'd run away. But why? Fleet tilted her head and took the block, looking into the Enderman's eyes. It stared back and seemed to quiver a little, but it could still move. Why? Just... Why?
The answer was because it liked those big bright blue eyes, and the shiny hair. The Enderman wondered whether or not the hair was soft. Fleet didn't understand why it was staring at her hair... Did it want to pet her or someth- Her question was answered as it raised it's hand to her head and ran it through her short hair. It sent a small shock through her, jolting her body. It was indeed soft, and the Enderman could detect a
EndermanAs the young blond traced small details onto her map, she wiped a bit of sweat from her brow. For early fall, it sure was hot... Or perhaps that was just the heat of the furnace getting to her? Sighing, Fleet dropped her quill and stood up, dragging her hand through her short, fluffy hair. The day had been long, and the evidence of this was all over her body- Dirty clothes, a small smudge of coal dust on her left cheek... Not to mention the fact that her hands were stained with ink. But all the dirt, all of that dust had been worth it. It was always worth it. Sitting back down again, she didn't even notice the sun setting as she her mind floated in the lala land that most refer to as reverie. Nor did she notice the tall shadow striding towards her house, a diamond block in hand.Enderman3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
No, Fleet was far too lost in her thoughts to even realize that she'd left the door open. Too busy thinking about how she dove down into that cave everyday, and always hauled back such a huge load. Today was th

He was just too far away
The feelings were there
But the pain grew more each day.
The sadness in his voice I could hear,
And my heart broke in two
Losing him was my greatest fear
But who knew we'd be like this who knew
I wish I could hold him in my arms
And whisper in his ear that my love was real.
But no matter how many wishes I made to the stars
These open wounds just wouldn't heal.
At times our smiles were bright,
Shinning through the pain we felt inside.
But then nothing seemed right
And our souls just cried
I wanted him to be happy
To dream a fantasy that would become real.
That fantasy seemed far away with me
His happiness I didn't want to steal
As my heart screamed out in pain
As my body ached for a way out
I felt all my strength drain
As all I wanted to do was shout
I'd have to give him up
It didn't matter about tryin

You were holding me in your warm embrace
Calming me down so that I wouldn't scream.
My heart would slowly start to race
As you looked into my eyes...
Why did you make me feel so safe?
But it was all a dream...
A fantasy that wasn't real
No matter how detailed and true it seemed.
I miss your loving words,
Your enchanting laugh...
Why did we have to be from two different worlds?
I loved you...
You and your negative flaws,
I just can't believe it's over...
Sometimes I pretend you're still there,
That you didn't break me...
That you so much cared.
I wish you'd wipe away my tears,
Tell me that you'd save me
That you'd protect me from all my fears.
But you broke me...
Shattered my heart
And drove me to a secret insanity.
You left me hallow and vacant,
An echo has taken over my heart...
I feel so cold and ancient.
Why won't you save me?
Why have you left me in pieces?
Don't you love me?...

You are probably wondering who I am. You are probably wondering why I have sent this letter to you. I am the shadow that follows you to work each day. I am the very fear that resides inside of your soul. I am the very one who will destroy you bit, by bit. Slowly I will eat away at your mind, working my way to your soul.

You're a bit irresistible.
At times I wish I didn't feel this,
This urge to just talk to you.

To tell you that I can't stop thinking of you.

You bring peace to my soul
You bring a smile to my face every day.
My heart won't stop beating.

My stomach fills up with butterflies.

I need you.
I can't deny it

Ansatsuken: 暗殺拳 Murderous/Assassin's Fist
This deadly fighting style is used by many, but mastered by few. As one can deduce from the name, its primary use is for assassination, as nearly every move, special or otherwise, is designed to be a crippling or killing blow to the target.
The style is based not off of a certain style per se, but a loose concept, the origin of which is unknown. Some link it to Japan's Feudal Eras, others trace it to other countries. The elderly Chinese fighter known as Gen practices this concept with two interchangeable styles of Kung Fu, the Mourning Mantis and Hateful Crane. This analysis, however, will focus on the version created by Goutetsu.
Goutetsu: The founder of Ansatsuken Karate. He combined moves from Karate, Judo and Kenpo, and, with the application of ki, made his own style. The end result was a style that is, as a whole, lethal. He was aware of how violent his art was, but apparently did not think much on it. He knew about th

GAY DISNEY RANTI'm sure the majority of you have watched Disney Channel before, and I know that whenever the TV's on during the day at my house, Disney Channel is what's being watched. I was reading an article about Disney's Good Luck Charlie, and how it is going to be showing an episode featuring a lesbian couple--Disney's first show to do so. And in the comments section below were some of the most vulgar, terrible, bigoted, homophobic comments I've ever had the displeasure of reading.GAY DISNEY RANT8 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
Article Comment: "Not right. Disney was always a wholesome family channel..... 'traditional families' (male / females couples capable of procreating). I agree with most others; if this is going to be the new norm at Disney Channel I will just stop watching all together. Disney was one of the last places a true American (Christian - seeing as how this country was founded on Christianity) could watch 'normal life' on TV."

I don't know where I'm going but I'm going there anyway.
I can feel that someone is behind me
Yet I just ignore it.
Perhaps it's just a person following a similar path as me.
I feel the figure slowly getting closer,
So I start to hurry myself.
But the figure is getting faster still.
I quickly turn around before I'm knocked to the ground
And a dark shadowy figure looms over me.
The figure is wearing a black cloak that covers his body
And a mask. I cannot see his face.
He brandishes a long silver knife
And I try to find the strength to struggle.
But it is no use.
I am to be a victim.
The figure pierces my flesh with his cold metal death tool,
Repeatedly, no matter how much I fight.
Eventually I can feel my crimson life water seep from my body.
I will probably die here.
I look up to see the figure still looming over me.
He's not moving, as if he's just watching me die.
With the last ounce of strength, I reach up to remove that mask...

Nurtured in hell
Birthed at midnight
The little girl rises, smiling
Eyes, red as ruby
She walks in the snow
Dressed in jet black
A dark mist surrounding her
She can feel she is getting close
Is palpable from distance
She does not need an army
For her weapon lies
In her misanthropy
Corruption is her motto
She will honor it
For as long as she exists
Immortal, but fallen
This angel has-been
Searches for a way
To wreak vengeance
Indeed, she is determined
But soon, her quest will be laid to rest
For Humanity possesses
What she seeks most
Hope in a better future
Faith in themselves
And Love for the other
Humanity's long-forgotten weapon
Will Humanity ever remember?
Will we ever go back to our roots?
The little dark girl is getting closer
No one will be saved
She is a threat to all of us
She is one of us
She will live up to her name

Your loneliness has spread to your eyes,
It has now become a part of who you are.
You can no longer keep contract of your own lies.
Everyone else but you can see that this has gone too far.
Your expressions and body language have become bionic.
It’s almost like the lights are on but the room has been ransacked.
What is ironic is that you try so hard to subtly avoid the topic.
I choose and use my words carefully because I know how you will react.
There is only so much I can say or do; the rest is solely up to you.
Only you can dispose of the trespasser that lies underneath.
If you only knew the trials you have unintentionally put me through.
Maybe then you will shed your grief and embark onto a new leaf.
I hope you take my sincere concerns on board.
Because time is one thing none of us can afford
To squander and wonder our lives away.
Be true to yourself.

That with each passing year since birth
Has had her confidence sold to those that stare
For so much less than it is worth
When it should be a priceless commodity
Especially to a doting dad
Is he not supposed to give to his child
All the things that he never had?
You, the girl in the corner of the classroom
That has forgotten how to smile
Are you tired of being told it’s just a phase
And you’ll snap out of it in a while?
It should be obvious that you are struggling
Especially to a loving mum
As she's already lived through those tearful days
That for you have yet to come
You, the girl hiding in the shadow you cast
Please accept your parent’s flaws
No matter what success or failure you taste
Do not let them be the cause
They created a life in love or in lust
Now nurturing has turned to neglect
A bird feeds her young till the day they can fly
So maybe now you should leave the nest

Believe it or not, being a host isn't as great as you might think. Being a judge is no better. Often times people create an OCT without putting forethought into what they're committing to, which is why so many OCTs usually end up abandoned or never getting off the ground.

-Time: Being a host requires having lots, and lots of free time. You may think that the biggest aspect of time is spent on judging, but that's far from truth.

Chapter One: The Unexpected Visitor
It was mid-March in the magical land of Equestria. The wintry chill swept through the lands, in some areas harsh, while in others not so much. The town known as Ponyville, and the area around it, received a fresh blanket of snow on the previous night. Local residents emerged from their homes to behold Mother Nature’s gift, as schools were closed and workers were issued a day off from their duties. Ponies of all ages bundled up in appropriate attire to keep warm as they ventured out to indulge themselves in the winter wonderland. While most enjoyed the spectacle, there were individuals who found it a nuisance. When ponies have had their fill of fun in the snow, they would go inside their toasty homes to curl up around a fireplace and wrap up in a warm blanket or tre

Our Cuban friend was waiting on an old bench on the coast of one of his favorite beaches. It was around seven o'clock and the sun was just dipping below the horizon, bathing everything in a calming orange glow.
'Wonder why he wanted to come down so suddenly,' He thought, taking a long drag of his cigar, 'He did say he was taking some Spanish lessons,' Blowing out a smoke ring, he frowned, 'Still, gotta wonder what's taking him so-'
Cuba looked up, and scowled, "AMERica..." the name died on his lips as his friend ran over from the other side of the beach. He was wearing one of his dorky little Hawaiian shirts, but the front was open, exposing his pale, flawless chest and stomach. His shorts hung off his hips, teasing him with thoughts of what hid underneath.
Skidding to a stop in front of him, the Canadian doubled over, hands on
