BEAUTY AS CAPTURING AS STARS,
FATE AS UNFORGIVING AS SCARS,
DARKNESS TOO GLOOMY TO THRIVE,
ABYSS TOO FEARFUL TO SURVIVE,
BUT LIGHT SO HOPEFULLY BRIGHT,
A CANDLE SUCH TENDERLY SIGHT,
THAT WINGS ARE QUICKLY ALIGHT,
WITH A FIRE SUCH FIERCELY DELIGHT.
THAT WHEN THOUGHTS ARE SIMPLY GONE,
I FIND MYSELF EASILY DRAWN,
TO THIS CUNNING GLOWING CANDLE,
SET UPON THIS WOODEN MANTLE,
SUCH A MESMERIZING BURNING,
WITH A CALLING JUST SO LULLING.
BUT A LIGHTNING SO SURREAL,
CAUGHT MY WING AND MADE ME FEEL,
A FIZZING FROM WITHIN,
THE FIZZING FROM WHEREIN,
EACH PART OF LITTLE ME,
BECOMES A DUSTY LITTLE DREAM.
FOREVER SWEETLY JUST AS SEEN.
SWEETLY AS I HAVE BEEN.

Chapter 5: The City of Freaks and the Ax-Handed Boy
There are one or two troubles with dreams, ladies and gentlemen: dreams are beautiful but could become the downfall of some. Dreams tell the dreamer of fantasies that can corrupt ones imagination what with the absurdities that can swim through them yet at the same time could cure insanity. They told what was real, what was unreal, what was safe, what was dangerous warnings. The possibility of being blinded by the fantasy of a dream is grand but there is a humongous percentage doubting that as well; a win-lose subject, I should say. But, as some times happen, the logic of many could become blindfolded by their denial that what they stumbled across was just totally impossible.
Let us take a haunted dimension as our example.
"This is not real this is not real " Sophia repeated to herself unwillingly as she remained still right at the archway to the city. Body frozen,
No Fear!Hand in hand they were running towards the abandoned warehouse, fog coating their legs.No Fear!3 years ago in Horror More Like This
The girl screamed, terrified of the monstrous creatures that were on their tails. Her partner urged her to keep running and pulled her into the building. The teenage boy let go of his companion's hand for a moment as he pushed hard at the stiff door, the only barrier between them and the oncoming herd of blood-thirsty monsters. He freed it at last from its rusty edges and slammed it in the zombies' faces. They were momentarily safe from the corpses' wrath, but through the door came the unnerving sound of rotten hands banging on thin metal.
The protagonist wiped some sweat from his forehead, sweeping a few stray blonde curls from his face. He looked over to his girlfriend who was trembling and softly crying into her hands.
"Oh Jayden, I'm so frightened!" she cried, rushing forward to bury her face in her beloved's chest.
He cradled her with his toned muscular arms, bringing her close. "It's alright,

To be honest, I don't remember much of it anymore. It's all a blur of rushing through crowded streets and cramped bus rides and crowds of foreign languages. When I look at the pictures, in fact, I can't seem to recall taking most of them. I can't even tell what some of them are supposed to be.
Our first stop was Paris, France.
I hated it there. It was dirty. Smelly. Crowded. Disgusting. Wherever we found ourselves, disdain was the only courtesy that was shown to us by those who called the City of Light their home. It didn't even matter that I loved each inch of history that was told to us by our guide - I just wanted to go home and get away from the squirming, teeming atmosphere that clung to me like fog on a rainy day.
We spent three days in Paris.
The first day is nothing but a fractured, bone-weary mess in my mind that consists of walking and walking and eating and walking and listening and walking and walking. The second day is simply bit

He found all of the little quirks that Master put into the programming and he recognized them from all of the projects they had done in school. It seemed like forever ago, but she still had all of her little typing habits.
Gakupo had a growing sense of unease building up within him. He tried to focus on speaking since it took up all of his effort, but he had a worm of fear gnawing away at the back of his mind.
"What are you looking for?" Gakupo managed to say with difficulty, forcing himself to speak.
"What." Amundsen said curtly as he lost his place for one moment. He struggled to remember where he had been and he scanned the page looking for where he left off.
When he found it he continued reading and sighed the rest of his response to Gakupo " indeeeeeeed."

Suddenly a tiny paw shot out from beneath his bed and in one fluid motion Gakupo seized the little limb and dragged the kitten Picaro from the black abyss beneath his bed, where he had been hiding and pestering the samurai ever since Gakupo tried to get out of bed that morning.
"Picaro, stay out of my room!" Gakupo cried into the face of the tiny orange kitten. Picaro merely blinked his huge, watery blue eyes innocently, but Gakupo had a hunch that the kitten knew exactly what he meant, and was disobeying him on purpose.
"Seriously cat, I'm going to step on you. Then what?" Picaro had been lying in wait beneath Gakupo's bed and catapulting himself beneath Gakupo's feet whenever he tried to leave the room making him trip. Whenever Gakupo tried to g

By now, it should have become apparent that quite a bit of worldbuilding went into this little comic of mine. If not, I fail whoops. Basically, I'm trying to explain many of the things in the Pokémon world that don't make sense or that I interpret in a specific way. A hopeless endeavour, I know, but extremely fascinating. So if you're interested in any kind of behind-the-scenes information that can't be fully explored in the limited space of a comic, you might want to read this ... or at least some of it. I'll never be cool enough for not being TL;DR, I know.
This database will be expanded with new facts as soon as they aren't spoilers anymore. This especially pertains to anything related to the Team Rocket subplot.
You can also ask questions if you're wondering about something, and the answers might be added here. Annnd feel free to point it out if something doesn't make sense~. My ego can take that.

Gakupo rocked the hammock gently with his toes as he enjoyed the combined heat from the spring sun and Luka who was pressed against him.
"I want to go somewhere." Luka murmured into his ear right beside him, entwining his fingers with her own.
"The land of dreams counts as somewhere, right?" Gakupo teased. Luka pouted and rested her arm lazily over his stomach.
Inside, Gakupo listened to the Vocaloids Prima and Tonio belting out something from an opera in Italian while Sonika tried to harmonize it with some pop in a strong British accent. Something smashed and Haku bellowed out "Damn it Dell!" and a whole host of other cataclysmic noises erupted from inside the house where every Vocaloid had been packed into except the few who were in the middle of world tours.
Master still hadn't returned from Dr. Amundsen's house, so Dr. Evil had moved in with all of the other Vocaloids to make sure that they would be taken care of and well maintained. Consequently he had to bring all of the

When he approached the front door holding the large dragon awkwardly he paused for a moment to think about what he was going to say. He sucked in a stomach full of air and extended his hand to rap lightly on the door, when he heard a low, harsh whisper.
"Lies!" A man's voice said "You were playing games."
Gakupo listened in shock to the frightening tone the man used as his hand fell uselessly at his side.
"I know you Luka. Take care of this, or come the next update I will."
Gakupo felt a ripple of rage spread through him as the full effect of the man's words sank in. He was threatening to alter Luka's programming!
"They won't think twice about casting you off." The man finished and Gakupo realized that the man must have been Luka's Master; only a Vocaloid's Master would know how to tamper with programming and would care about a Vo
Notes on Cornelius as a ShapeshifterA reminder. Cornelius was originally human. He ran afoul of a form-destroying virus which malfunctioned, mutating his body into a genetic hodgepodge of all former hosts of the virus, including himself. Although he's now apparently a monster thing, the virus left his original code intact. Each of his cells contain double DNA strands, one human and one glatni. He's able to express either set at will. But there are lots of catches.Notes on Cornelius as a Shapeshifter2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Just keep in mind that 'unshifted', 'normal', 'actual' Cornelius is glatni, 'shapeshifted' Cornelius is human.
By definition, anything 'magical' that happens in the Network works in conjunction with the nearby dimension, which has different physics. In Cornelius' case, this foots the bill for his change in mass. When he transforms, his shifting field (an area around him pushed drastically nearer the other dimension, temporarily allowing crazy things like all your cells changing at once without killing you) yanks/pushes a whole load of extra matter into/out o

It was a wintry Friday in February. Beth was almost thirteen—possibly the worst almost in a girl’s process of growing up, the almost of never catching a break from her own mirror and wishing her body would just make up its mind already. She poked at her soggy corn flakes and plucked at the itchy new strap of her bra. Wished her breasts were either big enough to actually make some shape, or small enough that she wouldn’t have to bother.

"'Warp what IS that?" Thundercracker asked as he pointed to the red and white treat the purple seeker held. Said flier looked up at the blue seeker, grinning as he popped the candy completely into his mouth.
"Candy cane." He replied, as he stepped closer to his wingmate. Thundercracker arched an optic ridge, not moving as he asked, "What's a candy ca?" He question was cut off as Skywarp pressed their lips together. Heated glossas touched and the azure seeker kept wondering what on Cybertron the odd, but delicious taste was.

and love will blossom without a doubt.
Luka stretched over her white sheets and yawned tremendously. She had done very little today and she was looking forward to some rest on her day off.
She smiled and giggled in a low voice. For some reason she felt energy pouring through her, even though she knew she should be crashing with exhaustion.
Luka listened as her Master went to sleep. He always retired in the same manner; first there was the low hissing as he extinguished his large black cigars. Luka waited for the noxious smell to seep into her room to know that he was putting his cigar case away. Then came the shuffle of heavy feet as he dragged himself to the bath room.
Luka listened closely as she envisioned each part of his robotic ritual. He would brush his teeth with the toothpaste for sensitivity, then, with the rushing hiss of water he would thoroughly rinse his mouth out. Luka listened to the gentle sigh of clothes falling to the floor as he cha

It had been an exceedingly long day. Long and difficult and ultimately fruitless. And humiliating and degrading. Not to mention disappointing. Probably some other choice adjectives as well but she was too tired to keep thinking what they might be.
Fulton and Deke didn't look like they'd enjoyed it any bit more than she had, for sure.

but it wasn't her ceiling. Neru blinked, still half asleep as she looked around her room in confusion. But it wasn't her room. Neru sat upwards and found herself in an unfamiliar four poster bed. Her head felt a stab of pain and she clutched it, rubbing her temples.
"Somethin' the matter, Neru?" Neru snapped her head towards the direction of Akaito, bare-chested with a tooth brush in his mouth and a faint line of foam on his lips.
"Akaito last night did we ?" Neru gestured at the bed below her. Akaito stared at her for a few seconds, not understanding what she was talking about. Then his eyes widened as he almost dropped the toothbrush out of his mouth.

Gakupo stared at her crouched figure in the doorway and for a moment he couldn't imagine what she might have been doing.
Luka latched onto Gakupo's Jinbaori and watched, fixated on Master, unable to see over her shoulder into the room except for the yellow wallpaper and the mobiles which hung from the ceiling.
Master grabbed onto something and with a heaving grunt picked her up and balanced her on her hip.
Gakupo's jaw dropped in surprise as Master walked back into the lab carrying a child. Luka stared in disbelief as Master knocked away books and glassware with a sweep of her arm and cleared a small spot on one of the tables. She lifted up the child and sat her down on the table and looked over her with wonder.
She looked like she was only about six or so, with fluffy blond hair like SeeU's which curled around her face adorably. Master could tell she was well cared for.

Renfield's ClockThe package had no label or return address. It was just left on my front porch, wrapped in layers and layers of packing tape and cardboard, square and slim, about a foot and half in length. It was heavy as I picked it up and rather than open it there on the front porch, I brought it inside, and sealed my doom.Renfield's Clock2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Inside, I found a clock. It was clearly old, the rim ornately decorated with motifs of vines, and while I was no expert the material was suspiciously reminiscent of gold. It had to be valuable. I was bewildered as to why I'd find such a thing left on my front porch. I turned it over, inspecting each side of it, and that was when the note that had been tacked to the back slipped off.
'To the person who receives this,' the note read, 'I don't know you and I'm really sorry, but I had to get rid of this. It's killed both my husband and children and now it wants me. I'm sorry.'

After the Master had caught one of the members of the horrible gang of black-masked people who were stalking the Vocaloid Family, she had taken her; unconscious, to the dark, abysmal basement for interrogation
Then she had raced back upstairs asking for someone to help her mediate between "Torture" and "Interrogation".
Gakupo had volunteered, not only because he really wasn't sure whether or not their Master would really resort to torture; but also because he wanted to hear more about why the gang was targeting Vocaloids and what there scheme was.

Gakupo turned and found Miku coming in from the kitchen; she had a curious expression that Gakupo could only think of as some kind of mixed rage. She shot through the other Vocaloid and walked straight to him, glaring at him with blazing eyes.
She shouted "How could you?"
Gakupo had no idea what he had done to incite Miku's anger, but he didn't think much of it. After all, Miku found something to scream about almost every day. She was never usually really angry, bu
