Hosted by The Rainsworth Dukedom
On Saturday, the 24th Eve of December at The Rainsworth Estate
In the Humble Capital of Lebleux
It would be an Honor to be graced with Your Presence on this Joyous Occasion
We Await with Bated Breath for your Humble Participation
“So Elly, have you decided whom to take this year?” Vanessa Nightray asked as she held out an intricately designed stationary that was the invitation, an excited smile decorating her mature, feminine features.
It was that time of year yet again. And in all honesty, the youngest legitimate heir of the Nightray Dukedom, Elliot Nightray, thought it was all too soon.
Every year on Christmas Eve, a ball would be held by one of the Four Dukedoms in which all of high status, ages 14 and above, is to be invited. The Nightray’s had been the hosts of Elliot’s first ever Christmas party, he didn’t like it. The Barma’s did it
Don't Give Me RosesSeries: Pandora HeartsDon't Give Me Roses3 years ago in Romance More Like This
It was very much the same way people took in sunshine or laughter or the scent of flowers or the colors of the sunrise, every pastel imaginable smeared together with the wishes of stars; the same way people touched fire with the tips of their fingers, touched skin with skin, brushed soul to soul. It was like hearing music for the first time, when you hadn't heard music in years, the cry of a violin, the crash of a drum that was beating as fast as a lovestruck heart. It was all very much like that loving someone, that is.
This was all something that Elliot Nightray whispered into his ear one night after they made love for the first time. All over the floor and bed were the dried petals of flowers that Elliot had crushed up and Leo had scattered them, tossing them up like confetti as they melted their lips together and pressed against each other's bodies. They had gotten the flowers from the floral shop tha
StuckImagine there's a girl that you've known for a little while.Stuck2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
She's cute, and bubbly, and you genuinely enjoy hearing about her day.
You see her more and more now, and you become friends.
She compliments you and you feel all gooey inside.
That's when you realize you might have feelings for her,
And you don't want to, because you're friends now.
But you can't help it.
When you see her, you just can't stop that dumb grin that plasters your face,
Smiling helplessly and staring at her,
Because each time you catch a glimpse of her,
She's suddenly the most beautiful person you've ever met.
And when she asks for a piggy back ride for the third time that day, you of course oblige,
But you know you're just sinking in quicksand.
And when she sits on your lap or leans her head on your shoulder,
You know you're almost under.
And when she begs you to hold her,
You hug her from behind with your hands clasped over her stomach,
And her hands holding yours.
Right then, you can't help but notice how
The Bonds We Build and BreakThere’s really something specialThe Bonds We Build and Break2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Between you and him.
Something you can’t touch
And something you can’t so easily see.
It’s a feeling,
An intense and cliché tidal wave.
It’s the searing pain of the pancake burns
And the deafening reverberations of the car fire,
The instinctive, mammalian protectiveness
Of when he used himself as a buffer
Between you and the toxic blaze.
When he catches your eye across the room,
He doesn’t need to smile at you,
Because he knows you’re already feeling better.
He lifts you up to the stratosphere
Where you can hardly breathe.
But it’s okay, because you’re breathless at the sight of him anyway.
Or in the

When his knuckles swelled to twice their size
And his knees painted the asphalt burgundy,
His eyes still shined as he pounded defeat into the bricks
And raised victory high above his head for everyone, and you
WINNER: ''Revolver''Series: Pandora HeartsWINNER: ''Revolver''3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Snow was a very peculiar thing and no matter how many winters he witnessed, Elliot found himself staring in wonder at the white flakes that would fall from the sky. He wasn't inclined towards any particular season, but winter held a sort of whimsy over him, and he'd have the urge to just sit and the snow just be. Did that make sense? He asked Leo as much as they walked back toward their dorms of Latowidge Academy.
His valet, however, seemed to hold none of the interest he had in the seasonal weather. As a matter of fact, the raven didn't seem to like it at all.
"It's cold, freezes my face, and then wind comes to make it even more cold," Leo griped. To say the least, it was amusing to Elliot, who very rarely witnessed his best friend complain about anything. Leo was just that kind of laid-back person who let whatever come, come to him.
So it went without saying that Elliot dragged him outside often that winter. They ha

¡Hola! Soy White-nuts y estoy aquí para mostrarles como yo emulo el efecto de colorear con marcadores digitalmente usando el programa Paint Tool SAI. Me he enamorado del estilo de colorear con Copic de manera tradicional, pero como son difícil de conseguir donde yo vivo, tuve que emularlos de manera digital, lo que puede probar ser una tarea intimidante. Mientras que la técnica que voy a enseñarles es bastante simple por si sola, tuve que repensar sobre las maneras usuales para el arte digital e intentar una aproximación tan cercana a la tradicional como fuera posible para obtener el efecto que deseaba, y porque muchos de ustedes la encontraran una manera poco ortodoxa de trabajar digitalmente. Este método fue desarrollado pensandon especialmente en Paint Tool SAI porque es el programa que conozco mejor, y como tal, no puedo garantizar esto funcionará con otros programas, pero tal

Kankri sighs,” Look, we almost got caught today. We were lucky it was a different teacher. But what about the next time.” A tear begins to form in your eyes “D-id I do something wrong…” you whisper, Kankri’s heart broke. “No…” Kankri knew you loved him a lot; he didn’t want you to still love him.

When we're done with school,
We'll live together
We'll leave this place
And go where nobody knows us
Even if I can't,
I'll put a ring on your finger
Someday, we won't have to apologize.
When this is all over,
We'll be together always
I'll come back to you,
And it'll be just us
Someday, this war will end.
Everything is going to be all right

RP Skill Levels
In-game, particularly in Fluorite's General Chat, people advertise for Role Play groups. But sometimes, they advertise their groups with certain requirements that tend to baffle the unaware. I, myself, have been one to go for and advertise for groups looking for "Literate Members", and yet the same groups often get people wishing to join that aren't what was called for...
Literate RP - Also known as "Lit RP" or just "Lit".
A Literate RP is just what it means, you must be able to write correctly in English. It means you must know the difference between your/you're, there/they're/their, it's/its, and other such commonly mixed up words. You must also be able to use punctuation corr

For most people, the problems that people will have with a character is the lack of balance they might have.
Mary-Sues are the most popular characters that exemplify this.
Mary Sues are characters that have more good traits than flaws and therefore look perfect for the audience. That can include all sorta of aspects in the character 'life'.
1) You have over-powered Mary-sues who can defeat any and every opponent and therefore are respected and awed by everyone.
2) Realtionship-Sues who are so much of the woman that every man who meets her is obviously struck with love the minute they see her, even when the character has no real qualities that WOULD normally attract men. And these are also the ones who are able to take their pick of the guy and somehow always end up getting with the most sought-after man in the series.
3) You have the feminist-sues/tom-boy sues who are the perfect women in their being less "girly" on

The fella called to the lady, "Let's go for a ride."
She smiled as she hopped into the passenger seat, and asked, "Where're we going tonight?"
And he replied, "Oh, honey, honey, I'll take you out on the town. We'll boogie down at I Beam and drink fine wine. I'll get the DJ to play our song, and we'll dance 'til sunrise."
"But, baby," she said, a little skeptically, "I'm not much for dancing 'til the sun swings high. I know it sounds crazy, but I just can't tonight."
The man checked his watch, and glanced to the girl. He grinned a little wider and replied, "That's okay, we don't have to dance. We can croon ballads to the stars, hand in hand. I know you love singing, ain't that true? C'mon, I know just the place."
The girl sighed, slightly dismayed. "I'm so sorry, sweetie, I'd really love to, but you see I've got a sore throat, and can't hold a tune."

Well, I figured that since Spongebob- Proof Of Spandy was so popular that I would do something that's different but also the same. I've written a little mini rant/opinions on an issue that isn't nearly as annoying as it used to be but it's still suck around for a quite a while everywhere I've been (Ex. DevArt, Fanfiction Net, LiveJournal). So, hope you can all enjoy and leave whatever comments you feel necessary. I would love to hear your opinions.
First I shall address Mary-Sues. Here's the five bad points of a Mary-Sue:
The name is only a slight problem. As in, it's not really one to be too concerned about but it is something that could give a good character a bad image. A name such as 'Melony Butterfly Lily DeeDee Silver Jay Hannah Rose, Melony Rose for short' is not going to give anyone a pretty image of your character and people will get tired just by trying to sa

"I'm just telling you to be careful up there."
Smiling at his master, the noirette climbed down from the ladder. "I told you, everything would be fine."
"Well, hurry up. We're gonna be late for class." Impatiently, Elliot kicked the bookshelf, making Leo halt his decent halfway down the ladder and look down at his master.
"Elliot, don't kick the bookshelf. What did it ever do to you?"
"Just hurry up."
Another kick just when Leo started moving and he nearly slipped. "Elliot, stop tha-"
Suddenly, a wrong step, a slip on the rung. His world came crashing down, pain accompanying it.
His eyes bolted open with a start from seeing those images, trying to regain his composure. Wait a minute, why was there a clicking noise when his eyes did open?
'Something feels strange.' He concluded. Indeed, as the young noirette known as Leo drew in another breath of air, something about his body felt different; He felt...changed.

Model pretty girls
Their bodies perfect and so thin
Their hair all up in curls
I want to feel my skin, my bone
Changing into something beautiful
But sometimes I think looking like them
May take a miracle
I'll push around the corn and beans
All around my plate
Maybe I can convince them all
That I really ate.
I can see my bones now
Showing through my skin
Which has grown so very pale
Which has become so thin.
All I'll drink is water
And eat only cotton balls
To make my stomach think I'm full
Perhaps I'll make it after all
People seem to notice
And ask if I've lost weight
Though I'm often sick in bed
At least I'm looking great
I'm taking it slowly
A little less each day
Slowly I'll turn beautiful
As I drop the pounds away
Everyday, looking in the mirror
I can't help but to fret
Saying I'll just have to eat less
Telling myself, "Not yet."
Maybe one day my beauty
Will be known around the world
Maybe one day I'll be a model
A star, and a Cover Girl.
Levi x Reader - The Morning AfterLevi x Reader - The Morning After9 months ago in Romance More Like This
For the first time in ages, Levi opened his eyes to find a woman at his side, snuggled into the comfort of his arms. This is the same woman he has had his eye on for quite sometime, young squad leader (first) (last). Since no one was currently looking at him, he didn't give a damn and softened his facial expression, pupils focusing on your soft (hair color) locks. It had been forever since he felt this happy. His loneliness was coming to an end at last after many cold and restless nights. Golden rays of sun shined down on you, glorifying your beauty even more to the man as he gently placed a soft kiss at the top of your head.
Long lashes were batted in the midst of fluttering eyelids, giving glimpses at those beautiful (eye color) irises he loved reavealed to him. You were perfect in every way, and why a girl like you decided to give her body to a man like him, he didn't understand. Still, he didn't care about any of that shit, especially when he saw your warm smile
Mental Disorder Discrimination"You said you've got depression?Mental Disorder Discrimination1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
No you don't, you attention seeker.
You're just an average teenager with the perfect life
Desperately looking for sympathy."
Stop crying, you coward.
You're just a childish "scaredy-cat".
Blaming your problems on a mental disorder
That doesn't even exist."
"So you're schizophrenic?
Grow the hell up, and stop acting like a child
You're too old for imaginary friends
You callow, juvenile, little twit."
But if we're attention seekers,
Why do we try so hard to hide our feelings from the world?
Why do we isolate ourselves in our rooms,
Desperately hiding the cuts on our wrists
Trying our best to live a normal life?
And if we're simply "scaredy-cats",
Why is our fear so vividly intense?
Unlike simple fear, our anxiety will stick with us forever
A severe long-lasting feeling of powerful panic.
A feeling from which we'll never be free.
Suddenly we're childish for having a mental disorder?
Schizophrenia is not something we can control.
