Makes 8 Pasties
o 450g of pumpkin, skinned with no seeds
o 2 large potatoes (if you don't want to use the potatoes you can substitute it with an extra 300 g of pumpkin)
o 2 sheets of puff pastry

Yogfic :: Technomage Reunion"Zoey," Rythian stood, his mouth opening and closing like a fish. He couldn't believe it. The warm look in her golden eyes, her hair the color of fire, the emotion that rolled off her.Yogfic :: Technomage Reunion2 years ago in Sketches More Like This
Zoey stood there staring back at him for a moment before she sprinted towards him and jumped.
Rythian caught her, chuckling in the back of his throat. He buried his face in her hair, breathing in the scent of sandalwood and earth. She raised her face towards him, her arms around his neck as silent tears streamed down her face.
"I'm so sorry." was all she said.
Rythian answered her by kissing her. He swung her around, relishing the fact that she was here and in his arms. He didn't even care when Teep behind them started to roar with laughter.
The mage stumbled backward and fell, Zoey laughing as the two of them hit the floor. They were breathless with laughter, and the two of them couldn't stop smiling. Zoey curled into Rythian's side, violet eyes meeting golden ones.

In addition to the following ingredients, you'll need a baking sheet and some aluminium foil.
Butter - 50 grams
Sugar - 50 grams
½ an egg, beaten (Substitution: 1 tablespoon cornstarch)
A dash of vanilla essence (One milliliter should be sufficient.)
Cake Flour - 100 grams
Baking Powder - 1/3 Teaspoon (Optional; see recipe)
Cocoa Powder - 2 Teaspoons
Take the butter from the fridge and allow it to reach room temperature. Don't let it melt, just let it become soft enough to cream.
Flatten the butter in a bowl as best you can, then whisk it until fluffy. Don't use a whisk that's too large or the butter will go through the spaces and you'll have to fish it out with a knife. I really do know this one from experience.
Add half of the sugar and beat it into the butter, then add the other half and beat until creamy. It should change consistency as you beat it.
Add the egg (or cornstarch) a little bit at a time, mixing well.

A Day In The Mind Of Lalna - Part 4, GamesLalna spent most of the days now to himself. The concoction glowed, warning him, threating him from where the scientist held it in his pocket. He felt an eerie ambiance clutch at his thoughts, as if he wasn’t able to shake the horrible ones.A Day In The Mind Of Lalna - Part 4, Games2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The scientist looked up to see a familiar face. Xephos, with his starry midnight eyes and red adventure’s coat. In some dark way, Xephos almost looked like Ridge. Sure, his coat only reached a little below his waist, and Xephos never had any golden cruelty in his eyes, but somehow… the way they held themselves was familiar.
“Hello,” the scientist almost had to force out the word.
In the dim light of Lalna’s lab, as he enjoyed working by tallow light, Xephos looked older. Each of the scars on his face were outlined, especially one that dragged down his mouth. He was already abnormally tall, around 6’4, but even in the dark he seemed more long and lanky.
“Are you alright?

"Hey Karin. It's been a while....how have you been?" said Isshin, after seeing who had entered his house. Karin had just come into her childhood home for the first time in a few months.
"Hi Dad. I'm fine. I just got back from the seireitei and thought I'd drop in before going to the apartment. I thought we could have dinner since it has been so long since we've seen each other," said Karin.
Isshin got up from the sofa and went to the kitchen to hug his daughter.
"Sure, hon. Did you want to go out somewhere, or get delivery?" asked Isshin.
"I'm kind of tired, so I'd prefer delivery. Is anyone else here?" she asked.
"Nope," answered Isshin. "There haven't been any Shinigami staying here for a few weeks now.&

Zoey bowed her head, her own face streamed with tears. "It's the only way. I'll make it back, I promise."
"Zoey," Rythian whispered.
The girl with fire hair threw her arms around him, pressing her lips to his. Rythian held her close, not wanting her to leave. He finally released her, though and she tightened her grip on her sword.
"I'll come back, Rythian. I promise. I love you."
To soon was Zoey gone. Rythian's anchor. His love.

"So let me get this straight, Toshiro. You want me to come with you to Soul Society and meet your sister?" questioned the raven-haired Kurosaki.
"Can I ask why?"
The snowflake gritted his teeth as he hissed out a single word. "Matsumoto."
That just raised further questions in Karin's mind. "Rangiku? What does Rangiku have to do with this?"
"She blabbed to her women's organization about you and now Momo wants to meet you because she thinks you're my girlfriend," explained the young taicho.
" Toshiro, I am your girlfriend, remember?"
"I know that! I just wanted to keep our relationship a secret."
"A secret? Why?"
"Momo still treats me like a baby and thinks I'm too young to have a girlfriend.

She was freezing. The walls were unable to keep the cold from entering in the cell. Sitting on the corner on the right side of the window, she let out a little moan, holding her legs tight to her chest.
They shouldn't have come! Kurosaki-kun Ishida-Kun Sado-Kun Rukia-san You shouldn't come rescue me. I'm not worth of it! Orihime couldn't stop the thoughts in her mind.
It was her fault that they were all beaten up. She didn't wanted them to die, that was the one and only reason why she went with Ulquiorra in the first place. She was only helping Aizen for that reason. She didn't wanted her friends to believe she had going to Hueco Mundo on her own free will, but if that kept them from dying, she wanted them to think like that. She wanted them to be safe.
The wind blew stronger, and passed by the bars of the upper window in the room. It was night and the moon, crescent, was on the dark grey sky. Orihime's tears rolled down her cheeks, watering her beautiful
A Day in the Mind of Lalna - Part 5, Face ItIn that room, with everyone from the server standing around a table, even without their usual getup (Ridge had put them in jeans and cotton T-shirts, “Suited for battle,” he said.), they radiated power, and in some cases… despair.A Day in the Mind of Lalna - Part 5, Face It2 years ago in Drama More Like This
Xephos kept looking at the ceiling angrily. None would question him leader, but the fact that he stood on the same platform as Lalna and the others did, that send worry into their hearts.
Lomadia tried to catch Lalna’s eye. No doubt they were the strongest pair together, technology and strategy; they’d be hard to beat. It was like the usual Survival Games Ridge put on, but this had a different air to it. Lalna was sure Lom felt it too.
Nobody spoke. Honeydew seemed to stare through the walls, one hand tucked beneath the other, stroking his beard. Rythian paced the floor, his violet eyes tinted blue in thought. Zoeya sat cross-legged, calmly awaiting Ridge’s reappearance.
The fiery technomage caught the scientist’s ey

It's a force field
I wear my heart upon my sleeve, like a big deal
Your love pours down on me, surrounds me like a waterfall
And there's no stopping us right now
I feel so close to you right now - "Feel So Close" by Calvin Harris
Rythian stood protectively in front of Zoey, the two of them were so close Rythian could feel the warmth of her breath.
"Stay behind me," Rythian murmured.
He felt the brush of Zoey's ringlets on his shoulder as she nodded. Rythian dropped into a crouch, leaning around a wall to catch a glimpse of Lalna and his projects.
"It's a force field," Rythian hissed.
Zoey crept next to him, and Rythian couldn't help but notice the glimmer of her golden eyes, how her warpaint made her so much more cute.
Lalna turned around and the way Zoey and Rythian whipped backwards and pressed themselves against the wall it was almost comical.
"Who's there?" Lalna called.
Zoey sucked in a breath, biting her lip. Rythian noticed she seemed edgy.
Zoethian :: Nightmarish DreamsI gasped, bolting upright in bed. Slient tears streamed down my face. I was trembling all over, my vision lurching. I untangled myself from my blankets, I was sure I'd been twisting and turning.Zoethian :: Nightmarish Dreams2 years ago in Sketches More Like This
"Zoey?" Rythian's voice mumbled.
I looked back at him. "I'll be back in a moment, give me a second."
He rolled over and fell back asleep. I pulled myself to my feet. The world lurched again, I tried to grab the table next to me but accidently knocked over the glass of water. The shattering felt like a battle strike in the slience. I felt confused and I tried to stumble over to the doorway. Stupidly, I tripped over myself and collasped on the cold marble floor.
"Zoey?" Rythian's voice came again, this time clearer and right behind me.
I ignored him and fumbled about till I reached the bathroom. I splashed my face with water, gasping as the cold liquid hit me. Heat flooded off me, I felt sick.
"Zoey, are you alright?" Rythian's voice came through the door.
I shivered, sinking to my knees and hugg

Her mossy blue eyes smiled at him. “Fell asleep, there?”
Lalna rubbed his eyes, yawned and then shook his head to clear the fogginess. “Yeah, I guess so. What day is it?”
Lomadia raised an eyebrow, handing him the cup of coffee. “March 23th, what else?”
“Oh.” Lalna pulled himself to his feet. “Why’re you here, then? Shouldn’t you need to tend to your owls?”
His sister glared at him for a second, and then her eyes took on worry. “Are you alright, Lalna?”
The scientist sipped the coffee, smiling when the caffeine hit his spine. “Perfectly fine, thanks to you. I’ve got to go tend to my experiments. I’ll see you, Lom.”
He gave her arm a quick squeeze before disappearing into the floors below. Lomadia, bewildered, just sighed and decided it was best to leave him be.
Lalna didn’t go to his lab; he barely gla

Zoey pressed herself against the cold wall. Her chest screamed for air, her eyes were swimming with tears. "I-I can't."
A forcefield seperated Zoey and Rythian. A thin, powerful blue line unable to be penatrated. Zoey had the remote Lalna had forced her to take, the one that would disable the forcefield but cause Rythian's enderman side to control his own.
"I want you to be free," Rythian slammed his fist against the field, suddenly awake with anger. "I want you to live, I want you to survive. I don't care if I become one of those = things." He forces the last word out. "I'd sacrafice myself to let you live, you know that."
Zoey's hand trembled. "I won't let you," her voice broke. "I can't - Rythian -"
Rythian pressed his hand against the blue wall. "Zoey, I..."
"Well, well. What a lovely reunion we have here." Lalna smiled as he casually walked down the stairs. His white coat was spotless, his goggles placed over his eyes. He had a fixed

Israphel looked unfazed. In his white spot-less dress shirt, black slacks, old-man shoes and a long coat with golden buttons, you’d never guess a maniacal killing man would stand in front of you. In fact, it was almost as if he radiated classy.
“I hope you remember I am the one who has the open to just snap my fingers and your brain will explode inside your skulls,” he said casually. “Of course, that is, unless you’re going to be gentleman about it and just talk nicely to an old friend.”
“Old friend!” Rythian spluttered. The mage wasn’t within Minecraftia when Israphel rose to power, but after speaking with Xephos to join Yogscraft, he knew all about the Dark Lord.
But to his surprise, Ridge sheathed his golden sword and stepped forward, shaking hands with Israphel. His eyes were wary.

"Relax," I whispered weakly through the bars seperating us. "Save you energy."
Lalna shook his head, shuffling forward on his knees and collasping next to the bars. On instinct, I wiggled my hand through the bars and clasped his own.
"You'll live through this," I whispered, unable to stop the tears. "You'll make it though."
Lalna lifted my hand to his cheek and held it there. I didn't protest.
"Zoey," Lalna grunted as another sudder of pain ran though him. "I-I..."
His eyes, glazed over from the torture we were being forced to endure, stared directly into mine. Mossy green meeting a sky blue. A spark of orange fire danced along my spine.
"I love you," he whispered.
I lost it then, sobs racked my chest, I started to tremble uncontrolably. I wanted to say something back, something to calm him and relax me. My tounge felt swollen inside my mouth. I couldn't speak.

Fusterated, Lalna knocked his little gadget off the table where it shattered into a million peices on the floor. He pulled on his lab coat and stormed out of his lab.
Zoey slipped out of Blackrock and whisked around the walls to the lake where she had fallen. She pulled off her shoes and dove into the water. The cool water felt good along her skin, and it felt good to just relax. She dove deeper and deeper, bubbles escaping her mouth as fish swarm with her.
The sun rose in the sky when she finally dragged herself out of the water, waterlogged and giddy with happiness.
Rythian flew in the air some twenty blocks above Tee's tower, laughing to himself as he watched her swim about.

a part of a story
and a taste of a slightly star crossed romance;
mixed in a half written sad song
written on pages of blue ink,
carried away in the wind.
it's a little broken,
but it's strong enough
to stand on it's own.

The Man of the Skies flew off, leaving Lalna to his own thoughts. He sighed, sitting on the back of his chair and putting his face in his hands. For the first time in a while, Lalna just thought. Not with numbers, or other languages, just his own thoughts.
“It’s not hard,” Lalna realized.
“No,” Rythian’s voice answered. “It’s not.”
Anger rose up within Lalna, but with a quick exhale, it faded again. I should hate you.
“Oh you should,” Lalna felt him smiling. But if you did, I’d be just empty emotions.
“How’s Zoey?” Lalna asked.
Christ, Duncan. I’m surprised you haven’t shut me out yet. She’s alright. Sleeping off some of the magic she had in her system. Still a bit phased.
Lalna felt Rythian’s anger and his grief and his liquid rage towards Lalna himself. Yet the alchemical mage didn’t respond to that small note, or acknowledge it. “You realize wha

The thing-the Ender, whatever Rythian became, seemed unrecoverable. Lalna would go every day at sunset to it's cage, where the old Brown Mushroom Base was, and watch it cry and screech at him through the bars.
Lalna felt no remorse. He did not hate himself for what he did, the pain he caused Zoey or the fact that he was the reason that Rythian was like this. But that didn't mean it still beat him up from an outside force.
--- Sixteen Months Later... ---
Zoey slipped down to the Brown Mushroom Base, her golden eyes now a tinted bronze. She'd lost a reason to live, unable to cope with what had happened. Her hands cupped around a stone mug of coffee, the only thing that seemed to sustain her these days.
She'd only been down here

“I don’t know what I do now, Lom.” Lalna muttered. “I don’t know anymore…”
His lab coat was tattered and covered in scrawlings. His boots were splattered with blood and muck. His goggles, perched on his head were fogged up from sweat. His blue-green eyes, like seawater, stared into the fish tank.
He was talking to himself. Earlier, the Owl Mistress was there. Her long golden hair, that kind, gentle, knowing smile… It felt like years since Lalna had smiled. He sort of… missed it.
Xephos and Honeydew meant well. The leader, always his glowing midnight eyes betraying his worry and bitterness towards himself. Honeydew, always ready with a joke or some sort of stupid story to tell. Lalna needed them, as much as he hated to admit he needed friends, he needed them.
Even the lumberjack Sips, and the architect and
