I'm just being me.
Do you want me to flee?
So you can finally be free?
Of this nuisance called me.
So you can be proud of another?
Maybe my brother.
How can I please you mother?
Do you want me to say,
I'm not gay?
You tell me I'm a stray.
And that you'll pray.
But you don't understand.
This was unplanned.
I'll take you by hand.
And show you where I stand.

"Gods..." you say. "Y-You're gods."
"Asgardians," Loki corrected. "Some might know of us as the Aesir."
"YOU. ARE. GODS."
"Stop repeating yourself," Loki sighed. "Yes, we're gods. We cannot die."
"I find that hard to believe," you say shakily.
"Do you?" Loki looked at you, his eyes - those cat-like eyes, a dance of bright green and sky blue - bear down on you as if you're a fugitive. You take a step back.
"Enough," Steve says as he steps in beside you. "Loki, give her a break. Not everyone knows you exist."
Loki scoffs a little, turning back to his dice game.
"You're gods," you say again. You shake your head. Why didn't you make this connection before? "You can perform magic-"

He was dying to ask her out. He knew that she liked him too, and if he asked her out, she'd say yes in a heartbeat. But he was too scared to say those six little words-will you go out with me.
He thought maybe he could get one of his friends to do it. But she didn't like his friends, she would never believe them. He could have one of her friends do it, but she would think they were just trying to screw with her head. If he tried, she would think that one of his friends dared him to do it just to see her cry. He didn't want to see her cry. He wanted to hold her every night and tell her how much he loves her. He wanted to hug her when she needed comforting and tell her she was beautiful, even when she felt her worst. But none of that was going to happen u
Polite Hate-speechI am writing this for the many friends, friends of friends, relatives, and acquaintances who feel attacked for their beliefs that homosexuality is wrong. I have heard the complaint more times than I can count from people I know, sometimes people I respect. Often it is directed at me. "It isn't wrong to politely voice my religious views," they say. "I have as much a right to them as you have to yours. What makes your opinions more valid than mine?"Polite Hate-speech3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
On the other hand, I will still condemn such statements as bigotry and even hate-speech. I claim they are hurtful, destructive, and socially unacceptable. Is that unreasonable? When is it appropriate to politely say "I believe homosexuality is bad"? Is it ever appropriate? Why do gays seem to flip out so much over a simple, honest, calmly-stated opinion?
I strongly suspect the lack of understanding between us stems from a difference i

Loki meets Balder. Loki was led through Asgard to a Hall he hadn't seen yet. This wasn't surprising he had only been living there a few weeks. He glanced at Odin who had a faintly wicked smile playing on his lips. “There is someone I want you to meet. One of my sons, Balder. He's having a feast right now, I told him you would be going. Have fun." He said as they arrived at the door. "Now, I have to get back to Mimir, apparently something bad might happen.” The all farther rolled his eyes as he thought of the number of bad things the perpetually nervous Mimir had predicted.Loki meets Balder.1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

In your overprotection

Begged you to let loose

And now, this is all that remains

I'm learning to move on
Learning to stand on my own two feet again
But somedays are better than others
And today is a bad day
One of those days when I wish I still had my hero
But most importantly, my best friend
I miss our calls
Everything I used to do, I did for you
And I don't want to take it back
Because those were the best days of my life
And I thank you for those wonderful memories
Photographs frozen in time
Frozen in my mind
And I thank you for always standing by my side

Her followers were fast asleep. She didn't reproach their reluctancy to accompany her this night - after all, mortals needed rest, and they had already enthusiastically joined in her nocturnal hunts for the past week. She noticed young Callisto's peaceful sleeping face. How fortunate, she thought, That no man can have her... They wouldn't deserve her.
On she went, out into the awaking forest. She felt particularly bright and bursting with energy, more than other nights. She broke into a run, skipping agilely between knobbly tree roots and lithely ducking lower branches.
She had a favorite spring to start at. Its water always tasted as though there were some nectar within the drops, and it was her "lucky charm" for hunts. She slowed, picking her way to the clearing which held the sp

Over the past three years, Kim had learned that in politics, there are no good guys or bad guys and the lines between right and wrong are obscured. However, Kim had to make money, and doing covert jobs for the government was the only way she knew how. She ran faster and faster, ducking and jumping over falling beams of steel and debris.

THE CELTIC WORLD AND THE TRUE MEANING OF HALLOWEENThe Celtic SocietyTHE CELTIC WORLD AND THE TRUE MEANING OF HALLOWEEN2 years ago in Historical More Like This
The foundation of Celtic society was the family. Even the ancestors were considered part of the family. In Ireland the matriarchal system prevailed, and the woman could have sex with more than one husband.
Both public and private life were under the control of the Druids. These men and women acted as judges, teachers, priests, soothsayers, wizards, doctors, and astronomers, probably constituting the most outstanding characteristic of the Celtic world.
Periodically, Druids from different places and tribes (even in war among them) gathered in assemblies to celebrate their complex and mysterious rites.
During "spare time", part of the Druids transmitted their knowledge to new generations. The school, which could last up to 25 years old, was mainly oral and students had to memorise numerous notions. The main function of education was the knowledge of Nature, its energies (tellurian and cosmic), its laws and its rhythms. This cultural background explains

Bible study is by the fire,

With smiles passed around like communion.
Laughter is scripture,
And joy is a commandment.
And in it all,

The moonlight filtered through the leaves far above his head, and danced on the ground in front of him as the branches dipped in the breeze. The moon hung low in the sky, close enough to touch if one could just stretch beyond the canopy of the gently swaying forest as it brushed against the diamond dusted sky. But of this, he saw nothing.Clearing's Edge5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

A young woman, really, and clad in the armor that had become uniform for them all lately, she stood a black silhouette against the white robed trees.

She was beautiful, standing there with stars sparkling in her eyes. Her blonde hair and slim form were easy to pick out of the sea of hardened soldiers that she was usually with these days. The

Need is the greatest of all foes
It can weaken resolve, yet strengthen the soul
It is the duty of need to test and challenge
It is the duty of need to make us who we are
All hardship in life
Waxes and wanes like the moon;
The drought comes, the cattle die off,
The harvest flees and so does good help.
To toil until yesteryear,
That is what will come of us;
Until all is satisfied,
The hole cannot be filled.
Winter has come
And lays out her precious jewels;
Each plant is covered, decked in ice,
And the sun admires her distant reflection.
The cold is like a wolf,
Hungry and ever-present,
And we pull our furs to our skin
To try and keep it away.
The bane of the flesh,
The biter with frosted teeth,
All is captured in hardest white
And Spring is far on the horizon.

We shall reap the plenty
The Earth gives us her approval
As our scythes slice the stalks.

It was a tree. Just an ordinary tree. Most people would have walked right past the ancient pine without so much as a second thought, but it stopped you in your tracks. Something about it made your blood run cold and your head spin. The unchecked terror prominently splashed across your features would have made hardened soldiers quake from fear of the evils that had caused such horror to appear in your eyes.
You cast over the tree the careful scrutiny of a man who had seen much, and knew more. The instant your eyes alighted on the broken branch that hung at a precise angle with the bough it had been attached to, and the tiny dot of some dark liquid on the ground beneath it, the terror on your face multiplied tenfold. She had been here, and she had somehow been unable to escape.
As the panic mounted, you finally realized what was happening, and stuffed the fear into the darkest recesses of your mind, binding it there along with the other memories you wished forgotten. After only a mom

To not know when to give love or let it be stolen?

There's still a lot I'm going through.
So sorry that I ran to you,

Myself for all these mistakes.
And I'm still tossing, turning in my sleep,
Lost the prayer that I used to keep
But still I feel...
Wondering why I can't catch a break.
Now I'm here, and I guess I'm staying
