Once I Knew a GirlOnce I knew a girl named Eve. She was short and skinny and wore glasses, and everywhere she went she was all elbows. She mispronounced her R's and climbed trees barefoot and saw fairies where others only saw fireflies.Once I Knew a Girl3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Eve loved to read. Stories clung to her like velvet. Her bedroom was an Eden cast in mint green and populated by books new books, old books, books with all the secrets of the world hidden inside them.
She brought her love to school with her: sometimes, the teacher would send her out into the hallway for reading during class. Haha, wouldn't want us to actually learn anything in school, we used to joke.

The caramel coloured cat dunked his brown patched head under the icy streaming water, his grey eyes exploding from the intensity of the cold. Damian was once again trying to clean his fur. However much time he had spent grooming the mud off, he always missed a bit. It felt refreshing to have the freezing liquid wash through his thick and ruffled fur, though if he had a choice he would of much preferred to be groomed by another cat. Just as he felt he couldn't hold his breath any longer, the small tom tore up from his shallow part of the stream and scrabbled out, careful to avoid any mud clinging to his fur again.

I am weak because I cry
I am dumb because I fall
I am mocked each day I try
I am the laughingstock of all
I am wrong because I ask
I am weird because I dream
I am sullen, for I mask
Each little mark and little scream
I am thin because I'm starved
I am small because of birth
I am sad because I've carved
A girl of better, brighter worth
I am blamed because I'm right
I am shunned because I'm tough
I am old because I wonder
I am young because I love
I am hurt because I'm stronger
I can love you so much longer
This aching thirst and hunger
Come and enter, for you'll see
This pretty horror

Zanpakutō Name: Chiheisen (Horizon)
Zanpakutō Appearance: Chiheisen, the Zanpakutō of the Provost, is both an elegant weapon and the focus of many classes in the Shinigami Academy. The uniquely exploitable power that it possesses is ideal for teaching tactics, and as such, the blade itself has garnered a significant reputation among groups of both students and scholars. They see it as an icon that represents the potential locked away in all Zanpakutō, no matter their abilities or the forms that they take. For the most part, Tetsuo has allowed stories of his weapon and the strategies that he uses with it to take on a life

Shipping Manifesto/Character Analysis- Jimmy Neutron and Cindy Vortex
Magnets- how do they work?
We'll start by analyzing each character individually and then their relationship as a whole, particularly contrasting it with Jimmy/Betty. (For the sake of argument, all non-canon pairings will be ignored). On that note, the Jimmy/Timmy Power Hours are /not /canon and will also be ignored.
Another note- an in-depth analysis of every single episode is beyond the scope of this piece and frankly, would be enough to drive a person mad. I assume you've seen the show. You're more than capable of filling in any blanks.

LifeOne moment, you're there. The next, you're not. Simple as that. And yet, it's so complex, so mystifying. It easily perplexes many. How can it be so close, so intimate to us, and yet remain a mystery like that? Such a small event being so big? Having such a huge effect? These unanswered questions express the mystery and uncertainty of those who feel its effects. They were so healthy, so happy...Life4 months ago in Philosophical More Like This

The sound of Hiro's voice startled me into awareness. "Pier, hurry, the longer we sit here, the more vulnerable we are!" Hiro's voice was sharp, but heavily weighed with an accent that I couldn't identify. He has choppy black hair and his eyes are red. I picked up the pace, digging my bloody fingers into the concrete and metal wall. A gust of wind nearly blew me off the building's side, but I clung to it as best I could. Everything was happening faster than I could keep up with. I barely remember how the day had started. Maybe I should try to remember..........

The rain had come down in sheets most of the day, and by the time the strange pair had burst into the tavern, they were thoroughly soaked.
The taller of the two, glanced around, noting that the room was strangely devoid of people, even on a day as miserable as today. His sharp features, silvered hair and brilliant golden eyes marked him on the spot as an elf, and his long, loose clothing, in shades of brown and green, marked him as a Ranger of the forest.
The sword at his hip, the bow on his back and the knives scattered about his person marked him as someone not to be trifled with.

Not bad, he'd managed to sleep for a good fifteen minutes this time. Hair matted to his head, body shining with sweat from the nightmares and tortured dreams that had plagued him for so long. What was he at now, four years, five?
It didn't matter, it felt like a hundred since he had slept at all.
Sighing heavily, he walked over to the window, staring out at the neighborhood, resting his forehead against the cool glass, trying to make sense of it all

Moving from the past

My shadow, my retinue
It cannot be sorrow
Never wonder about tomorrow

Love is my bane
It cannot be joy

I desire an intersection
No longer care for perfection
Just more than empathy
Perhaps a warm body
A person, to call my own
Someone, to enchant my home
Loving arms, to hold at night
Gentle whispers, in the morning light
Powerless, is my mighty wrath
To walk alone, this single path.
