Me again. Yeah, I know what you're thinking: Does this guy do anything that's not pasta related? I'll get to that, keep your pants on. Or don't. You and you - yeah, the brunette chick - you can take 'em off. I'll wait.
You will need:
~4 to 6 small, fresh zucchinis. The little ones are best, and a mix of yellow and green looks nicer than all one or the other.
~1 jar basil pesto
~1 cup chopped walnuts
~1 large onion
~At least 4 cloves of garlic
~1 cup grated parmesan cheese
Cut the ends off the squash, slice them in half the long way, then cut each half into 1/2-inch thick half-medallions. Chop and sautee your onions in the oil, like always. Dice and sautee the garlic once the onions turn translucent and soft. When the garlic is lightly browned toss in the zucchini, and sautee that until it starts to get tender. You don't want it to let it go too long, or it gets watery and gross. This is the reason you Americans hate vegetables with such a fiery passion - none of you know how

Through truth you'll get anywhere.
You're perfect the way you are they said.
You're something beautiful to share.
I remember hearing this all the time,
recollecting those words as I write this rhyme.
There was one thing that they forgot to say
which is what my mantra is here and today.
Though you may be you and the best to believe
you still need to work to be beneficial
in the lives of others and yours to achieve
anything that will not be something superficial.
People forgot to say that work is needed.
Not the normal amount that keeps you in the gray,
but mind wrenching, sweat creating, limit exceeded.
To stand out and pave your way in life today.
It's the type of work that will make you shine,
to help you stand out and remain unforgettable.
The type of work that's so difficult to define.
The kind makes those gone feel their absence regrettable.
Average work that makes you blend in with others
that gives one average recognition and reward
is the kind that I don't

Down by the Walls of Wapping, where I met a sailor gay,
Conversing with a bouncing lass, who seemed to be in pain,
Saying, William, when you go, I fear you will ne'er return again.
His hair it does in ringlets hang, his eyes as black as soles,
My happiness attend him wherever he goes,
From Tower Hill, down to Blackwall, I will wander, weep and moan,
All for my jolly sailor bold, until he does return.
My father is a merchant the truth I will now tell,
And in great London City in opulence doth dwell,
His fortune doth exceed ₤300,000 in gold,
And he frowns upon his daughter, 'cause she loves a sailor bold.
A fig for his riches, his merchandize, and gold,
True love is grafted in my heart; give me my sailor bold:
Should he return in poverty, from o'er the ocean far,
To my tender bosom, I'll fondly press my jolly tar.
My sailor is as smiling as the pleasant month of May,
And oft we have wandered through Ratcli

I mean if he loves me so much then why'd h e cheat on me?",Ryeowook wondered as he walked home. The lights were on in the living room when he got home, so Kyuhyun hadn't left yet. He didn't feel like arguing right now. He silently crept through the kitchen and was almost up the stairs when he was caught.
"Ryeowook?" he turned around, Kyuhyun looked awful, pale and sickly. His eyes were sad and tired, his hair was messy, it was a whole new Kyuhyun. It had only been one day! How could he have changed this much within a few hours?
"Leave me alone Kyu" Ryeowook continued upstairs. Kyuhyun just stood there and watched him walk away.

There was a beautiful sunset coming then.
The sun is white hot and high.
I sat in the sand with my toes soaking in the water.
Two old men sit on a bench parallel with the outer wall of the building.
He stepped inside my lingering footprints and stopped right behind me.
My footsteps echo precious old memories against the walls after I come in.
We were alone.
I'm almost the only one there, and it makes me feel more noticed than I like.
I turned and eyed him.
Everyone stares as I walk into the elevator.
He looked down at me with a faint smirk.
Remembering keeps me from smiling.
And then he sat down at my side.
One other person comes in and stands next to me.
The lights in his eyes danced like the glow on the water.
A red light clicks on when I press the button for the tallest floor to which the elevator goes.

1. Make the pairing Lucius/Harry; that will get my hopes up and make me read.
2.Start with Harry living at the Dursleys. Make sure he is locked up in his room, preferably mention beatings and that he hasn't been fed for a week, because that wouldn't make him dead at all.
3.It's Harry's birthday! Of course it is! Make him count the seconds, and EXACTLY at midnight, he'll be in a lot of pain. That is impressive, because it means his relatives at least sprung for a really good alarm-clock for him which also shows seconds. And that creature inheritance (because that's what this is, of course) doesn't care which time of day he was born, but use the exact stroke of midnight instead.

The figure flicks on the light of his room, and looks at himself in the mirror hanging on the pale wall. His normally vibrant blue eyes were dull, and tired. Various bruises covered his neck, while one covered his cheek. He sighed and walked over his bed, removing his shirt in the process. On his chest more bruises and scars cover his small chest and arms. He got into another fight with him, over something so stupid. The young man chuckled dryly to himself.

And of course Sasuke listened to him half-heartedly, he was busy with his fan, the AC in their living room was broken and it was hot like hell.

Actually, Tsuna particularly liked the flying. He liked the fact that even though he couldn't swim, couldn't for the life of him get an "A" in any subject, and couldn't get Kyoko to find him devastatingly and irresistibly attractive (not that he really cared about that much anymore, the reason for which will be explained shortly), he still had the ability to say that he could fly. How many socially awkward yet still adorable, tiny, quiet brunettes could say that they could easily fly through the air without an airplane? Tsuna's money was on very few. But he digressed.

The stockings were hung on the back of the couch with care, in hopes that Saint Nicolas soon would be there.
The titans were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of; meat and car parts, tofu and video games, mustard and glittery things, tea and books, and a trap that was waiting for Red X, danced in their heads.
While Red X in his cloth mask and Slade in his metal one had both snuck in for totally different reasons.
