So much to do. So much to consider.
Darkness had settled hours ago and the house was finally quiet. Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes. With one hand laying on her belly and the other arm curled around her head, she did her best to relax her body, hoping that her mind would soon follow. Her long black hair was pulled to one side and was flailed out on her pillow and bed. Her spacious bedroom was dimly lit in the warm blue glow offered by the full moon. There were not many furnishings, only the bed, desk across the room under the window and a wardrobe that was made of some dark wood. Two other pieces had joined the
The Importanace of Wonder Woman's Clay Birth Her origin is one of the most unique and original superhero origins out there. No one else in the entre comic book world has such an original and mystical beginning like Diana of Themyscira. Wonder Woman’s clay birth is a key component of who she is. This is a very important aspect to Wonder Woman that many comic book writers, artists, and readers don’t get. Wonder Woman’s birth from clay is a major aspect of who she is and what she represents on multiple levels.The Importanace of Wonder Woman's Clay Birth2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The Pandora Paradox
First off there’s the element I call the Pandora Paradox. Marston had the myth of Pandora in mind when choosing Diana’s origins. For those who are fuzzy on the myth, Pandora was created from clay by Hephaestus, god of the forge and given several unique gifts by the gods. Pandora was actually created as a punishment for the sins of the Titian, Prometheus. Prometheus had tricked and robbed the gods of Olympus twice and given the sto

Though it was a sunny and lovely day, everyone was too distracted to notice the rare moment of peace in their kingdom. This was because it was the week before Valentine's Day in Mushroom Kingdom!
The streets and item shops were filled window displays of gift ideas, shades of pink and red, roses, and toads rushing here and there searching for the perfect gifts to give! Excitement, suspense, and love was filling the air! Every minute that passed meant they were a minute closer to the special day!
Mario and Luigi were also among the many who were searching for the perfect gift.
"THIS IS MY YEAR, WEEGI!!" Mario declared.
For years he had trouble and doubt about gift giving, but he promised he had the best idea this time. However, Luigi wasn't impressed or as optimistic as his older brother.

Top Ten Myths About The AmazonsTop ten myths about the Amazons.Top Ten Myths About The Amazons2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
1) Amazons are purely a myth.
This is purely a false statement. Evidence from the ancient world provides documents of a matriarchal society in Asia Minor run by a queen. This society was the location of Amazonia, the ancient kingdom of the Amazons. There are records suggesting that this civilization run by women was a powerful force in the ancient world. Babylonian, Greek, Roman, and even Egyptian texts suggest that many countries including Troy were allies and enemies with Amazonia. There is also historical evidence that these women came from the north from the land that is now Russia. Even Alexander the Great is recorded meeting with an Amazon Queen during his trips through Asia Minor.
2) The Amazons hated men.
This statement is also a false myth stated in Greek culture more than Greek text. In the ancient world, women in power were viewed as evil or dangerous. Greece was a society ruled by males. A culture with a woman in power wou
Sleeping Princess JadisOnce upon a time, in another world, there was a princess who lived in the great city of Charn. Like many princesses, she was very beautiful and many princes and lords hoped that they might one day marry her.Sleeping Princess Jadis4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Many other princesses are kind, gracious and gentle. Unfortunately, Jadis was nothing of the sort. She was vain, proud, selfish and willful. If her maidservants displeased her over a trifle, she would have them beaten and she enjoyed watching. Jadis also had a younger sister who was almost as bad as she was. They used to fight constantly. As Jadis was older, bigger and stronger, she would always win and would leave her little sister bruised and tearful.
It is not a surprise that Jadis was such a wicked girl, as her parents were just as evil. Her mother was a lazy pleasure-seeker and her father was a cruel tyrant. As emperor of Charn, he ruled the surrounding lands with an iron fist. No other city was strong enough to defend itself against the might of Charn.

So she may see with her sacred sight
Her voice sounds like a dream
So that it may seem
She speaks from hell
She'll be your Eve

She felt really drowsy. As if the structure of her very being had been melted down and then rebuilt like new, she did not feel quite at ease within her own body right now.
Her vision being blurry, Diana rose up, feeling the solid ground beneath her to be almost a comfort considering her last memory of being sucked inside an urn made of clay. Getting up with difficulty, her vision soon adapted to the low lighting of the mysterious environment she was in.
Feeling her legs, she was a tad relieved. Unsure about what exactly had happened and what it entailed, she went to her waist to retrieve her trusty golden lasso. Seeing that it was nowhere to be found, Wonder Woman figured she must have dropped it while she had been helplessly manipulated by that strangely garbed woman and her powerful object.
Her sight now completely clear, she could see huge walls of stone standing tall all around her. Shaped into corridors and lighted up by a few torches, Diana figured that she was in some sort of la

Corvo became the Royal Protector when the Empress turned 13 (even then people thought her stubborn for taking a whole year to choose her bodyguard.) Young man, boy really, from Serkonos, only few years older at age seventeen,was 'given' to the soon-to-be-empress to show the good will and approval of the isles (and the pirates, let no one lie to you) when she was visiting the city of Karnaca on her first royal voyage. To the young lady the guard was no more than a watchdog, meant to intrude on her life. To Corvo, it was the only thing he was trained for. And he was trained in many things.
