From the looks of the Investigation Team's faces, one might think they had just seen the scariest thing in their lives. The SEES members eyed them with curiosity rather than confusion.
"WHAT?!" Chie shouted.
"Are you crazy?! No way I'm going through that again!" Yosuke protested.
"Umm Have you guys played that game before?" Fuuka asked.
Rise and Yukiko lowered their heads. Recently, they were told about what had happened in Escapade and needless to say both were rather embarrassed about it.
"I refuse to take part in that nonsense again!" Naoto said, trying not to lose her calm.
"Damn right!" Kanji agreed. He clearly looked uncomfortable about that idea for some reason.
Souji sighed. "Sorry, Teddie, but I don't think anyone is willing to try that game again "
Teddie's eyes became all teary. "No fair! Nobody wants to play with me..." he whined, shedding crocodile tears. "Teddie never gets to have any fun "

'Cheefe?' Minato wondered with half a slice of a three cheese pizza in his mouth.
'Yes, it's said to give you nightmares.'
'That...' Ryoji stopped to swallow his slice. 'Is an old wife's tale.'
'How do you know?' Mitsuru quirked an eyebrow.
Ryoji gestured to Fuuka and laughed. 'The old wife told me.'
Fuuka looked outraged.
'Fine... Fine.' Mitsuru turned away. ' On your own heads be it!'
'Hey, guys-!' Junpei sat up, cap askew, a dvd case in his hands. 'Final Destination-!'
Ryoji's glare stopped him in his tracks.
'Oh, c'mon! Lighten up, Ryoji!'
'Well... That was disgusting...'

It was a cold, harsh night when Lucy's father was murdered. She hadn't been able to sleep, lying awake in her bed as rain attacked her window and lightning flashed across her room. She wasn't frightened of the weather; storms happened often enough in Solace but something in the air made her heartbeat race. She'd heard of magic, of the vampires from the Shadowlands and though she'd never felt their touch she knew the air was tainted with their dark presence.
Her light, blue eyes flashed towards her door as she heard a woman scream and she could do nothing but curl under her sheets in worry. It had to be one of the maids, she knew, as there were no other women in the Manor. Feet clattered down the hallway and past her room and though the young woman didn't know it then, she had a deep fear of what the maid had just discovered.
"Father..." she whispered, though she didn't leave the safety of her bed, waiting and listening as she heard shouts from down the corridor. One she recognised as h

Nine Nobodies, tucked away in the deepest basement of Castle Oblivion, mourned their current situation.
How did you stand being in this dusty, musty room for so long? Xigbar asked Zexion between sniffles. And I thought you were the one with the sensitive nose.
Zexion shrugged. Sacrifices.
Im still kind of worried Luxord looked around. Its just the nine of us. There should be ten of us. What the heck happened to Demyx?

Does this mean that theres a way you can die, Luxord said, trembling, and go so far that not even evil resurrection can bring you back?

Kirby- Legacy of Meta-KnightThe Legacy of Meta-KnightKirby- Legacy of Meta-Knight11 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I've had the honor to stand alongside one of the greatest knights the universe had ever known.
I have watched his rise, his fall, and rode along the currents of his determination.
A determination that nothing could weaken, that would never falter.
He was my leader, teacher, mentor, friend and confidante.
"Who is this knight?" one may ask. Not because one didn't know his name, for everyone knew of Meta-Knight's legacy. No, one may ask because in fact no one really knew who he was. He was stoic, compassionate, honorable, but those only described his behavior. No one knew what motive lay behind his actions, except for me, except for my brethren. We were nothing but four knights expelled from our respective kingdoms for our sheer incompetence. We had nothing, were nothing, until he came.
He didn't need soldiers; he was sublime. Yet in his kindness he took us in, trained us, cared f

With your eyes turned down
In the subdued silence
Just like you know to do
My hands around the reigns
When I pull you close
You don't resist
Such a well trained slave
I lean in close
Just to make you tremble
Sending chills down your spine
I feel your heart pounding
A little bite on your ear
Just a small one
Makes you remember
I'm the one in charge
You wanted this
To awaken these feelings
That I can't hold back
This is your fault
Though you look away
I know you feel it
My gaze upon your tiny form
Making you listen
You belong to me
I control you
Do what I say
You released this monster
Deep within me
The one I can't restrain
Now I make you beg
This is what you wanted
Yet you tremble before me
Can't look me in the eyes
Afraid to move
I never wanted this
But I savor you
The way you say please
Only when I let you
You brought me here
Gave me the ropes
Told me what you wanted
Such a cruel game you play
I can't say no
So I wonder

I love a good mystery. It takes me to another place. A place where I'm the could-be hero if I'm observant and intelligent enough. Honestly I believe these qualities should be the base of any hero. Puzzles left up to me to solve make my heart pump. Give me a crime and a lead and leave me alone. I can guarantee that I'll have it solved before you can say "Sherlock".
But this is different. There is no crime so-to-speak. At least not that I know of. All I have is a letter from my shoe locker.
What is it with people at this school and leaving me notes? I've only been in Inaba for roughly a year and I've a decent-sized collection of letters in a drawer at home. Some of them were from confused girls, sealed with a kiss sticker and laced with perfume. Obviously they hadn't heard from the rumor mill yet that I was their gender, though some of them may not have cared.
Either way, none of the letters were importa

The sounds came from the kitchen, and echoed dully in Mia's ears. She closed her eyes and willed them to go away. But was that possible?
Could you really turn back time to before the trial began and when the white mug was still intact and not painfully cut into his hands?
Could you really have saved him, even when he willingly drank the deadly liquid from that tiny and seemingly insignificant bottle?
Could you really have won against the demoness, even if you tried again?
Mia's heart plummeted and she felt another teardrop slide down her already wet cheek. She wished she really could turn back time, but that was impossible.
The urge to just fall back onto the bed she was standing against and push her head into the pillows left her. She straightened up and walked towards the kitchen.

Chapter Two: Landia the Dragon Protectors
The four Halcandra dragons had sensed a change in the forces. They knew the darkness had become stronger. In taking control of Magolor it had gained the power it needed to seize the Master Crown, or so it thought. The four dragons had no choice, but to attack the ancient which they had been beside for a thousand years. It was the hardest thing they would ever have to do, but they needed to protect the Master Crown. It was their destiny and their fate by birth.
The corrupted Magolor had taken control of the Lor Starcutter making it even more difficult. The ship was very powerful and the Landia knew they stood no chance against it. They would have to think of something to stop the evil destruction. Things were hard for the four dragons, for they were still mourning over what happened to their ca

He must've sobbed for a good hour before the tears ran dry. After that, he just trembled silently reflecting on all that had happened.
Fuyuki looked on, worried and slightly nervous. Keroro had grown deathly silent and he wasn't sure he was prepared to handle whatever emotional throw-back this would have on the Sergeant. Nothing that came to his mind seemed like the right thing to say and he was almost frustrated that he couldn't be more useful for the defeated Keronian.
He watched curiously as Keroro stopped shaking all together, before a silent murmuring caught his ear and he listened carefully.
"Where are you....answer me....everyone."
"Gunso?" He asked.
"Where--someone. Greet me...." His voice was barely even above a whisper.
Fuyuki frowned sadly, he'd just have to wait, let him finish mourning.

Shades of Green: One Month
Hulk was seated on his bed, contemplating everything that had happened since Shego came into his life. It has been nearly two weeks since the very night that he first confronted Shego, and every since the fateful encounter, Hulk's life has never been the same since then. Hulk would never admit it to anyone, but he was becoming closer to Shego, their bond continuing to develop and grow as each day passed. It was because of her that he was in his room alone, thinking about the beautiful woman that was slowly winning a larger piece of his heart.
Still, there was a part of him that was in denial of this, unable to accept the fact that Shego was becoming something more than just a friend. He couldn't understand why he felt something more, something stronger than just friendship with the beautiful pale green-skinned woman. After having his heart broken by Betty, Hulk never wanted to love or care about anyone or anything ev

Its a curse. A weapon of lies and deception.
Will you destroy it, then?
He didnt answer. The biblical passage that Al Mualim had recited as he died still rang in his mind. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. There was much truth in the words, he reflected, though it seemed an odd thing for Al Mualim to have on his lips as he passed on to whatever heaven or hell awaited him.
His first impulse had been to crush the thing with the broad side of his sword, but something stayed his hand, even as he heard Al Mualim taunting him. The thought had struck him that there may something he could learn from

10 cosas que no te enseñan en tu escuela de diseño
El paso del mundo académico al laboral es siempre difícil, particularmente para quienes trabajamos en el campo del diseño porque nos vemos obligados a aprender las condiciones en las que se trabaja sobre la marcha.
Este post recoge 10 cosas que habitualmente no te enseñan pero deberías saber para dar el salto al mundo profesional.
1. Tu diploma no te ayuda a encontrar trabajo
Pero tu portafolio sí. Por supuesto que es bueno tener una educación en diseño y un título que lo pruebe, pero cuando se trata de obtener dinero de tus clientes ellos quieren ver de lo que eres capaz, no un diploma.
2. El buen diseño lleva tiempo, no fijar fechas límites muy ajustadas
Cuando estás en la escuela de diseño los profesores fijan las fechas de entrega de los trabajos y tratan de darte el tiempo suficiente. Tu jefe o tu cliente no serán como tu profesore

The girl stood there in silence, shock and what looked like horror was written all over her face. "I should leave you two alone," she said breaking through what seemed like an endless silence.
"Haruhi," Kyoya had collected himself, and moved to the door. "I don't think you leaving would be such a good idea," his dark eyes sharpened and with a swift movement he pulled her back into the room and shut the door.
Haruhi stumbled forward a bit, caught off guard, which didn't just come from the tug on her arm but from the fact that she had just seen her Senpai's mauling each other. Twisting around she placed her hands firmly on her hips, "I don't want to stay Kyoya-Senpai,"

Everything seemed the same, and much to Barrett’s chagrin he was still getting bossed around by a spiky-haired, sass-mouthed, white-ass pretty boy with Bambi eyes who looked like he came straight off a packet of Nibelheim Apple Strudel after getting lost on a hill with a lonely goat - but something was different. The kid in the dream was a hell of a lot grumpier than regular old Ted, and he had some stupid-ass name.
Cloud, he remembered - that was it.
You’d have thought his subconscious could have made up something better - that wasn’t even a name. That’s just weather - like calling your kid ‘Snow’ or something, he thought to himself.
Goddamn dreams, man.
