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
o 1 large brown onion
o 1 teaspoon of chopped chives
o soy sauce added to taste
o hoisin sauce added to taste
o oil for cooking
o 1 egg
**NOTE: This recipe makes more than enough pasty filling, so you can make larger pasties if you wish. It's okay to have a small amount of filling leftover.
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Step 2: Half-fill a large saucepan with water and heat on high until it is a rolling boil. While you are waiting, peel the potatoes, and chop them and the pumpkin into rough 2-3cm cubes. Put these into the saucepan, and when it has come back up to boil, cook for 15-20 minutes, until the pumpkin and potato is nice and soft (mashable).
Step 3: Finely dice the onion, and gently fry it in a small amount of

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.
"I've missed you," Rythian twisted he
How to make Muffin-Tin PiesHow to make Muffin-Tin Pies3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
This is a really fun recipe I use for the Holidays and parties! ^-^
The steps listed below will make approximately one/one-and-a-half batches of twelve mini mixed-berry pies. Just use a regular muffin tin, and you can use paper muffin cups if you like, but if you don't I recommend spraying the ENTIRE muffin tin (not just the cups) before putting in the dough to help them come out easier.
The Oven will need to be pre-heated to 350 degrees before the pies can go in the oven.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup shortening (I generally use Crisco)
3/4 cup butter (chilled)
6 Tablespoons of ice water
Making the dough:
1.) Cut up butter into medium-sized cubes and return it to the refrigerator for later use.
2.) Cut up the shortening and drop in chunks into a bowl of ice water.
3.) In a separate bowl (large), combine flour, sugar and salt and then mix well.
3.) After they are chilled, remove the shortening from ice water, the but
A Day In The Mind Of Lalna - Part 1, RidgeHe sat in his chair by the fish tank, the glow illuminating his face. His eyes, always too much like broken glass stared back.A Day In The Mind Of Lalna - Part 1, Ridge3 years ago in Drama More Like This
“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
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, Games3 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?
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 It3 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

"Wake," something whispered in her ears. She twisted around, spraying the black sand in an arc around her. Her hair was dotted with them. "Wake," something said louder. "Find the mage."
Against her will it seemed, she rose to her feet, shaking, her boots almost burying in the sand. "Run," the voice whispered. Again, Zoey twisted around, trying to see where it could be coming from. She knew that voice. She'd heard that voice in her dreams, or more likely nightmares. But she knew from her own experiences with magic, that whatever happened in this place would affect what happened in others. The Dream Realms weren't meant to be messed with.
Zoey began a slow jog, through the twist and turns. It seemed like a.. a circus. A steampunk circus. What?
"Dodge!" hissed the voice.
Zoey, lighting-fast reflexes as she had saved her, she twisted and landed on her back just as a giant

"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.

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.

"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."

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.

"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 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..."

"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.

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

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.

“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.

There were once two sisters who lived together with their large family. Every year they came together to remember the people they've lost. They remembered all their deceased relatives and friends, even pets. They called this time the Ghost Festival. This festival lasted for one whole month. During this time, the door between the two worlds opened, allowing ghosts to come back and visit the living. To honor the spirits, families would leave out food for them. They wanted them to live happily in the next world. The last thing you want is a hungry ghost coming back and haunting you.
Perhaps this was why they moaned, thought one of the sisters. Ghosts are always moaning in stories and in movies. Maybe they did this because they were hungry. She moaned when she was hungry, too.
Sadly, not all ghosts were remembered or had family to take care of them. So people would often leave offerings for the spirits and forgotten ghosts. No one wanted the spirits to be sad.
During the festival this year
