65. HorrorWith a title of "Horror," you would expect me to write something of sterotypical horror; the gore and violence, or even zombies or ghosts, that the population's mind is predominantly set to when they hear "horror."65. Horror5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
No, its none of those, I'm sorry to say; but I shall speak of the horror of loneliness surrounding you, while the world around you binds together.
How would that be, for horror in life? How often do we come along loneliness and take it with much disdain? More than we encounter zombies I should think.
Some are taken by this horror much more than others; and I for one start to wonder what happens later on down the road if they le
44. Two RoadsTwo roads stood in front of me, both signifying either good or bad. On Memory Lane, the road divides, the dark side tempting me with its dark character, leading me into the terrible memories of my past; the brighter side, the one with the fonder memories pulls me away before I can walk into the deep abyss of my past.44.

I'm sure with that type of advertising, his heart would never be wanted. I mean, who would want to love a heart in such dire disrepair?
Evidently me because, for some reason, this is one advertisment I'm going for.
5. DreamsBeads of color chased each other through the air while the boy sat silently on the hill. When the first colored bead, a blue one, caught in his long wavy hair he jerked up, out of his thoughts. He looked around and caught one of the beads, a violent red one, and he cracked it open and ate the glimming lines that reared up from the inside.5.

They were delicious, and once the first was eaten, they all wanted to be eaten. They swarmed in, towards the boy on the hilltop, all wanting to be first, all wanting to be devoured by his sweet mouth. None of them noticed that they didnt leave the boy time to swallow, and as darkness closed in on him

It had always moved, and I had never noticed. It moved in slow waves, as if it were breathing slowly, like old people do. 'Labored breathing filled the air of the small room, it sounded shallow, as if many holes had been punctured into the lung'. There was no sound, there had never benn, and I assumed there would never be. Just the movement. Like a ship, rocking on the tranquile waves of the Carabian sea, suspecting absolutely nothing while the sailors sleep and dream of home, or of tropical islands full of beautiful women.

By now, it isn't a secret that I'm a huge fan of the Assassin's Creed franchise. I have pretty much loved the series, and its ideas of genetic memory and heritage, ever since it first came out in 2007. Now, as the date of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood draws ever nearer, I am strongly contemplating what the next step will be in a line that we saw commence with Altaïr Ibn La'ahad and currently ends with Desmond Miles.
Reportedly, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will be the final official game where we play as Ezio Auditore, the Renaissance Assassin of the bloodline. As Ezio is already in his forties during the c

The "Normal" type of Pokemon tends to have a Terran sort of cell structure. In many ways, they behave like normal animals, sometimes being confused for such. However, the "moves" Normal-type Pokemon can use vary greatly from the Earthly norm. With Normal-type powers and abilities, some Pokemon have the capacity to regenerate themselves, move at speeds unknown to other animals, shoot concentrated beams of energy, and even explode.
"Flying" type of Pokemon seem to be some offshoot of the Normal type, and as a rule tend to have wings or some kind of flight apparatus. Like Fighting-type Pokemon, they have hyper-dense muscle, but only in the musc
Porygon Origin Typed VersionPorygon is a Pokemon that was originally designed in order to test whether or not a generator powered solely by magnetic force would work. The generator would work, but only if it was used in such a way so that it was controlled and kept under care. At this realization, the idea appeared that a non-organic being could be made using this as the energy source, but only if it had the capability of controlling it costantly, whereas the required components and programs in order to make such an invention were yet to be developed... At this, scientists began to to work on these projects, while simuntaniously, another branch of the company, Silph, bePorygon Origin Typed Version3 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

A suited lawyer and a man in his early twenties were standing on the hill next to the three story house.
"I understand, you're not the first person in a situation like this. Either way I am very sorry for your loss and I hope you will find solace in that your Uncle did leave the entire house, no strings attached to you."
The young man was quite perplexed. This is the sort of thing that would happen in some generic fish-out-of-water movie. Someone inheriting a massive house from a completely unknown relative. This sort of stuff is just plain unrealistic and weird.

While I slept, I had the most frightening dream. I was in the middle of a room, and I was surrounded by shadows. At least, that's what they looked like. Normal shadows are two-dimensional and only appear on a surface, not as a solid three-dimensional figure standing in mid-air. They were all solid black, though their edges were faded, just like shadows, with the shape of a head on top of their square shoulders, and stood almost

I hold him close to me. Under the bandaging, my chest hurts. I don't need stitches but I would've if the wound went much deeper. It probably wouldn't hurt, though but I don't want to. I'd have to answer questions then, and people wouldn't understand. They'd try to take him away.

"Are you crying?" Dionysus asked, somehow still amused. He took the cup from Aster, and placed it gently next to the other one on Evanthe's vanity.
"I had no idea," Aster found herself muttering after she swallowed the wine.
"Well, you were around for that last bit. I mean, not literally of course, but alive and in the general vicinity, at least," he pointed out.
Aster's hand found its way to her eyes, and wiped a tiny bit of moisture from them. She stared at it, realizing that those were the first tears she'd shed since her eyes had turned gold. She expected them to be as odd as the rest of her, perhaps leaving a dark and sticky sheen of
