I am your marionette,
My heart painted delicately,
With your image.
It was all a careful process,
I didn't know if I wanted it.
I struggled away from you,
You held my gaze,
Never letting my support
Slip from your grip.
Forced to stand tall,
I carried on.
You paralyzed my every muscle,
Every desire I had,
To get away,
They all faded.
I can't let you do this to me.
Another toy is added to your set.
You placed her delicately in front of me,
Tangled and helpless,
I could only watch.
I became nothing more than a backdrop.
You loved her.
I was strewn about,
A cheap hand puppet.
My fabric tore,
But that was the least of your concerns.
You kept Her velvet surface soft,
While I stayed engulfed in shadow,
That didn't stop you.
If anything, It increased my desire
To be the star
Of your show.
You kept yanking my strings,
The strangling became so unbearable,
I can't go on.
I collapsed into line.
The Presidents: Zachary TaylorThe Presidents: Zachary Taylor3 years ago in Settings More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
By the 1840s it was clear that slavery had rose to become the main issue every American was concerned with. Abolitionists, slave owners, and compromisers all had different solutions to the problem that were causing divisions in the country to grow. The people needed someone to unite them and Zachary Taylor became the first president expected to do so. Taylor was born on November 24, 1784 to a wealthy planter family in Virginia. As with previous presidents, he happened to have been born in Orange County. However, his family moved west into what is now Louisville, Kentucky where his family lived in a small cabin before building a luxurious plantation. He had an interesting view on slavery for someone who was grown into a planter family. He would develop his own plantation in Louisiana, but never really had any pro-slavery sentiments. Over time his family became more powerful as the city of Louisville boomed. His father, Richard Taylor, came to own 10,00

The Presidents: Theodore RooseveltThe Presidents: Theodore Roosevelt3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
The Republican Party's bosses did not like Theodore Roosevelt and tried to contain him in a place where there was no power. That place would be the position of vice president. An anarchist's bullet would change everything. Roosevelt was born in 1858 to a wealthy family in New York. His father, the elder Roosevelt, supported the Civil War, but did not fight in it because his wife's family was fighting for the Confederates. Roosevelt Jr. was asthmatic and as a teenager he overcame it through strong physical exercise. He was known for being energetic and exciting (he drank a gallon of coffee per day for most of his life) as well as being contradictory.
He would enter Harvard in 1876 and took up wrestling and boxing. While there, his father died in 1878 and he married in 1880 which was the same year he graduated. He was then crushed as his mother and wife were killed on the same day. His daughter was just two days old and he left her with his sister and headed w
The Presidents: William Howard TaftThe Presidents: William Howard Taft3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
William Howard Taft may have likely not wanted the presidency. He had different expectations and he wanted a different job. Sadly for Taft, he was stuck in a time when people expected a great president (because his predecessor was considered a great one) and he thus had high expectations, but in the end he upset people. His predecessor's inability to stay away from politics would also ruin their friendship.
Taft was born in 1857 in Ohio. His father went to Yale University and had became a lawyer and then served as secretary of war to President Ulysses S. Grant. Taft followed his father in graduating from Yale and going into law. Taft became a very good judge in court cases and was appointed solicitor general to President Benjamin Harrison. Taft had long wanted to be one thing: chief justice of the Supreme Court. Instead, President William McKinley made him the governor of the Philippines. He returned to Washington in 1904 as secretary of war to President The
The Presidents: Woodrow WilsonThe Presidents: Woodrow Wilson3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
Since Grover Cleveland, there had been no Democratic president. Now, Woodrow Wilson became president as a Democrat (mainly because of a divided Republican Party) and he would be stuck in one of the most devastating wars in world history. A war in which he would hope set an ideal for Democracy and unite the world together. Wilson was born on December 28, 1856 in Staunton, Virginia. On his fifth birthday his home state seceded from the United States. Wilson's first memories would be of the effects and horrors of war. He claimed that his earliest memory was the age of three when he was told Abraham Lincoln was elected president and war was coming. Wilson also remembered a time when he stood next to Confederate General Robert E. Lee and looked up into his face. His upbringing in the south has led to questions on his morality. He was the last president to grow up in a household with slaves.
At the age of sixteen he went to Davidson College in North Carolin

Day 1 6:37AM
"I won," Rainbow exclaimed as she looked at the blue alien. 'But what am I to do with you? You could be dangerous. I need to hide you before anyone sees you.' Just then, a great bubbling sound was coming from the lake. 'What now?' Rainbow got herself ready in a fighting stance. Preparing for the worst. Licking her chops, she was anxious to fight, but she was tired from the ordeal she just went through. Whatever it was, she hoped it was harmless or small. Steam now rose from the lake as the bubbles increased in velocity. Then a bright yellow ring rose from the depths of the lake. Confused on why this could've been here, Rainbow walked slowly to the strange levitating ring and grabbed it. Its brightness immediately died away the moment she touched it. Putting two and two together, she guessed it belonged to the alien. She placed it in her mouth and considered where she should go next. 'Fluttershy could be a possibility, but sh

Why did Bartz look miserable then?
He stared up at the trees, not saying a word. As the wind brushed his hair, he didn't express anything on his face; Not even that stupid grin I thought was glued onto him. I stood there, unsure of how to react.
"We did it," he suddenly said. "We get to go home. We get to be happy now, right?" Bartz glanced at me, showing an apathetic smile. "To be honest, I've hated this entire trip. I may have never shown it, but it kept tugging at me every step of the way."
"Bartz..." I began, but then he interupted me.
"Even after getting my memories back, I still held on to what I had in the present, even knowing I was going to lose it all. I'm pretty selfish, huh?" He looked down at the ground as the clouds casted down a shadow. "I've made friends here. I've met you, Squall. I'm not ready to leave..."

'I'm dead. I'm dead. I'm dead,' Amu thought to herself as she made her way back to the kitchen. Ikuto was still sitting at the table, watching her every move as closely as a hawk watches it's prey. That comparison gave Amu a wave of chills that ran down her spine slowly, making their presence noticeable. Amu began washing the dishes when she felt something wrap around her waist. 'Here we go,' she thought, feeling a chill she knew wasn't really there.
"Do you mind?" she asked, trying to get out of his hug. "I need to finish the dishes."
"Later," he purred in her ear. "First, I want you to tell me something."
Amu felt her stomach turn upside down. If it was about this morning, she was definitely going for the crowbar.
"Wh-what?" she asked, trying to sound calm. 'I hope he can't feel my heart beating,' she thought. 'Otherwise '
"So what exactly happened this morning?" he asked, rubbing his cheek against hers. Amu began blushing. She felt her hands weakening. In a second, she dropped

Height: 6'7" on his hind legs.
Weight: Around 190-200 lbs
Race: Anthro wolf.
Appearance: His fur is a strong grey in color along his legs, arms, and back, fading to a lighter shade along his belly. His stance is two-legged by default, though he will often drop on all fours when running quickly or tracking a scent. When standing fully upright he reaches a height of 6'5". His front paws have opposable thumbs, but the digits are thicker and less dexterous than a human's hand. This, along with the thick claws at the end of his fingers, can make handling smaller objects and instruments a bit of a challenge for him.
Oh yeah, here's a pic too: http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/2161/fenrir2.jpg
Personality: The first impression many have of Fenrir is that he's kind of a dork, and sometimes a clumsy one at that. He is an innately curious creature, but is also rather naive. Especially when it comes to the
