Turqoise eyes opened to the snow covered scene outside his window. The white snow had fallen gently over the Seritei moments ago, and the white clouds slowly moved on in the sky. He slowly sat up and yawned. ' I can't help but wonder if I'm forgetting something '
He cringed hearing his drunken lieutenant as she raced in. She stopped as soon as she saw he was up. "Taicho! Happy birthday!!" She swayed as she came closer and hugged him tightly.
Within seconds he was losing air, and fast! But one thought lingered in his mind as his 'death' approached . 'That's right, it's my birthday! How did I forget that?'
"I can't believe it's that time of year again! My little taicho is growing up, oh so dramatic!!" she said with dramatic tears racing down her face.

On a girl you consider a friend.
You wished to be together,
Until the very end.
Finally the time came
And the dream came true.
You and her expressed your feelings,
And there was something new.
You laid for an hour,
Getting closer inch by inch.
Your hands brushing together,
And finally she clinched.
For the next few hours,
You and her would flirt.
She was expressing great emotions,
You knew you wouldn't get hurt.
Holding hands, head to head,
Laughing for a while.
Your heart was beating fast,
Faster than the Nile.
Although it was very awkward,
Something you never expected.
You and her both
Enjoyed every second.
Finally you arrived,
And were bound to go home satisfied.
Then the time came,
And you had to say goodbye.
The very next day,
The mood was very weird.
You walked up to greet her.
You noticed as you neared,
Something wasn't right,A feeling you had feared.
She walked away speechless
As your eyes began to tear.
You both remained silent,
For the rest of the day.

Chapter 4: Wish Fulfillment
I got up and looked at the small little dragon as it shook the remains of the shattered eggshell of itself. I backed up and stepped on an old dry leaf. The dragon instantly whipped around and faced me. Our eyes locked. I wanted to turn and run, but something in the way those eyes stared at me held me firmly in place. Without warning, the dragon leaped onto me with such force that I fell over backwards. To my amazement, it did not hurt me, but began licking my face all over. Once I was thoroughly covered in drool, it got off and let me up. Not knowing what to do, I just stood there looking at the dragon confused. It saw this, and its little head dropped, a look of sheer sadness upon its face.
You dont remember me, do you?
I was confused. I liked dragons a lot, but never did I imagine seeing one up close, and this one was a little too real for comfor

beh..how i make flashbeh..how i make flash9 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
All spelling mistakes are copyrighted by meeeee, okay they aren't.. flash by macromedia and all respective companies and websites are named are owned by themselves. Yay. If you look for anything specific, hold control and F, or command and F on a Mac I believe, and look for the keyword there.
So let the headache begin ^^:
How to get Flash:
There are 4 ways:
A)Buy it at macromedia.com, the official way. it's expensive tough.
B)Go to shareware websites, like www.download.com, and get the trial version, so you can try for a month. You probably give up on flash after that time anyway.
C)Finding a bootleg version, which is illegal, so i won't discuss it to save me from trouble
D)finding a person who owns Flash, and can send it to you with msn/aim, but the file is huge mind you. And this is also illegal I think.. O_o;
This tutorial is based for Flash mx, the other versions might have their tools in a diffrent place, so you have to look for them then X__X

To Never Return
He was my immortal love.
Eternal light fed his veins,
And he gave himself to my fangs.
For that he was a tortured angel.
Like a plague who has found it's prey,
My craving could not be quenched,
For I was a vampire captivated,
Undead, yet dying in his arms.
I drank deeply of his soul,
Devouring his flesh,
I drew him deeper into my abyss.
And with every bite, his light withered.
And with me, his wings delved deeper.
And the more I consumed,
The more we were torn asunder.
We were both lost.
I was to die.
He was to never return…

Silver was running down the corridors pushing open the doors on his way past.
He couldn't possibly just let Fernando just give him an ipad. He pushed on harder

Shadow was running down the next few corridors, looking down every pathway, in every

Shadow looked at him puzzled. Silver's face practicallly gave off a glow he lit

"What's the matter?...oh...i see. Well I thought it would be worth to at least

"N-no I don't mean that!" silver pitched in.
"Oh, then what's wrong?"
Silver looked up, and seemed as if he were about to cry. He fought back the tears
so none shed. He suddendly outbursted-
"You can't just say that then leave!" he shouted.
Shadow blinked in surprise. Taken aback, that silver ever even shouted like that.
"If you want to leave fine!"
"Silver you know I have no other choice, the only reason i'm leaving is because
i saved your back!"
Silver wouldn't have it. He hated shouting at people especially if it were to be

When you woke up, it was dark. And quiet. Were you the only person awake?
Sighing, you swung your legs over the side of your cot and got up. Even though there was no reason for you to be up, once you were awake, you were awake, and there was no way to change that. You had learned that early on. You made your way out of the Homestead, careful not to wake anyone up. As you walked through the Glade, you realized that it was a completely different place without everyone bustling around like ants. It was slightly unnerving, to tell the truth.
You shook your head and started to jog towards the wooded area. For some reason, you felt safe there. Maybe it was because of the fact that you spent your first night there. Who knows. Once you reached the outskirts of the forest, you placed your hand on the bark of the tree you leaned against on your first day. You’d changed since

You wake up to the strangest smell. It takes you a minute, but eventually, you recognize it. Smoke. And smoke means fire. Newt or George might be in the fire. Your friends might be in the fire. After that realization, you practically throw yourself out the door and out of the Homestead. Eyes wide and breathing hard, you scan the Glade, searching for the source. Your eyes fall on the kitchen. Smoke billows out of the windows as flames lick at the walls. The rest of the Gladers are swarming around the torch of a building. Your eyes flick over the crowd, and you find George, but… where’s Newt? You rush down and push your way through the crowd to Frypan, who had just crawled out of the kitchen.
You reach down, grab him by the collar of his shirt, and snarl, “Is there anyone else is there?”

He and Fatespeaker were young parents, having only officially become mates in the last summer, but they had adjusted to their new roles far easier than Starflight would have thought possible; preparing their chambers for the addition of a hatchling and figuring out just how the two of them would care for their first child. And being heavy with egg hadn't slowed Fatespeaker down at all; over the last few months she had worked tirelessly in the Jade Mountain Library alongside Starflight, despite his attempts to get her to rest and not put herself under unnecessary strain. Fatespeaker had insisted that he needed her help, which wasn't entirely true, as years of being blind meant that there was now little that Starflight couldn't accomplish without assistance, but Starflight hadn't been able to dissuade his mate, and had ultimately been secretly happy to have her aroHatchling2 weeks ago in Romance More Like This

This chapter takes place where the last one stopped.
Author's note: there are a few things I'd like to say before I start this chapter:
1- When Flippy left the army, he was a sergeant.
2- Mouse Kaboom and Sneaky will sometimes refer to Flippy as "Sir", since I assume he was their superior in the army.
3- They still don't know yet that Evil and Flippy are separated.
4- Mouse Kaboom is deaf due to all the explosions he made in his life, although he can understand what people are saying by reading lips. Also, he is French (and so am I, well French-canadian, but still French), so I'll put in some French lines from him (with translations of course). Since they fought together for a couple of years, Sneaky and Flippy know French (they can't speak it though) thanks to Mouse Kaboom, so they understand him. Lastly, just for the purpose of having fun, I'll make him like a Casanova (Disco Bear style), but a lot nicer and more gentleman-ish.
5- I'll make Sneaky a more reserv
