After all we were just kids then, sitting beneath the trunk of the oldest apple tree in town like royalty. I watched as the riveting words rolled off your tongue plunging into the crisp air executing all sorts of somersaults and flips before finally reaching my eager ears. The other kids called you the king of stories.
Why were your tales always so welding? Was it because your voice reached the various highs and lows like the valleys of deep mountain ranges? Or was it because your face would start to turn purple? Perhaps from all the words carrying oxygen molecules out of your lungs in a rather humorous way.
Or maybe, just maybe, was it because I loved you? I guess my clumsy, youth filled, little heart couldn't help but fall in love with the boy who gallantly sat

It is so hard to tell anyone, you never want them to feel the pain you do, don't want to bring them down or make them worried so you keep brushing it under the rug looking forward to the moments you can be alone in your room just to listen to sad music and let the tears stream. You recover and relapse in cycles. You do not 'have it", you suffer from it and will for the rest of your life. It can be put away in a box but will randomly catch your eye and as you open it back up to see what's inside the blackness envelops before you have a chance to escape. You plaster a smile on your face and only letting the mask slide when you think they aren't looking. Seeking real pain to sate the torment in your mind, replacing one pain with another that is tangible and more logical. Numbness sets in, you see your body performing actions and are subconsciously aware that an alternative force is controlling your body as you watch.
Being told to get over it, be happy, no you're not and you are lucky, ju

from tiny boats,
sampans and coracles -
red sails threading the sky
like poppies in the autumn sun.
Whales slip through waves
hunting silvered krill
and the spiny dusk
of urchins clinging to the sand.
And they wait
for lines to pull
their hands under
glistening with eel
hauling the afternoon
back to market
in hempen nets.
Gay but not gay?Gay but not gay?4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
You can be gay and not gay.
If you're born that way, it's not a mistake, right? You have no choice but to eventually come out and live according to your genes. Wrong. I'm here to argue the opposite; not to dismantle gay, not to excuse it and not to dismiss it. I know at least in some cases that it isn't all that from personal experience. First, though, let me explain something. There are two ways to be gay. You can have sexual desires for someone of the same sex, and then you can act on those desires. Most people today will say you are gay if you have the first one, mainly because because in this culture, it is unthinkable to have sexual desires and not act on them- even to dwell on them or to please yourself. I am speaking on the point that you can be gay and not be gay, and I hope to convince you of this point.
First off, let me tell you my past, since most things like this nowadays are written by people who don't have an understanding of where people are coming from. I'm not going t

The sun beat down on my heat relentlessly, a terrible wave of heat ripped through my body and fled off my head. It was August 15th, and according to my iPod, around 12:30 give or take a few minutes. The weather was incredibly nice, although the heat slightly irritating. Sitting on that sun heated swing I pushed myself idly back and forth with my foot in the sand.
Without a word I tucked my iPod back into my pocket and turned my eyes up onto the sky, studying the white clouds smeared across the sky; like splatters dropped across the horizon from God's paintbrush. The sky was otherwise clear and a cheerful blue, at least, if you were one to like the color blue. I supposed it was better than a warm color like orange or red. Anything was better than being warm, it was so hot that day, the heat made me will for winter again. But I knew that as soon as winter would come I'd just want summer again. So I remained in the brutal heat, trying not to complain.

Felarya DreamI ran. For what felt like ages upon ages, I ran. From what I did not know, some nagging presence in the back of mind simply insisted that I had to run and so I listened. All around the world was unfamiliar and invisible to me. The only thing to be seen was the mire-like light blue cool mist stretching seemingly endlessly and obscuring everything else from view, save for a few immensely tall shapes. The entire world was silent as well, not even the faintest noise of any life. It made me afraid, but not of the unknown. There just had to be something out there, hiding just out of my sight.

"You did what?!" I shouted. Max didn't even flinch back, much to my annoyance. Actually, he must be pretty used to me going off on him. Everything he did made it feel like I had a little brother instead of a roommate. We'd been fast friends for years, but he'd been getting on his nerves a lot lately.
"I signed you up for one of those online dating sites." He said simply. "Ever since Cassandra dumped you, you just decided to drop off the face of the Earth... and Setrol. You need to get back out there man!"
I ran my hands through my spiky hair. I didn't do it, it just spiked naturally. The blood red color however was not natural. When I was bored I'd just change something like my hair color. "Alright, which one?" I was at least gonna make sure he didn't sign me up for one of those cougar sites or something.
"Does it matter? You'd still be ticked at me." He was also good at applying logic when I really didn't want to deal with it.

Part 1: A Cat I Could Trust?
My name is Jisu. I'm 16. The name sounds cool, but my parents got it from the japanese word for cheese. Isn't it a little redundant to name a mouse boy after cheese? My parents are gone now, they died of illness. My older brother Mitch had to raise me. It was all nice, until we got caught by that cat girl. She was cruel! She crushed Mitch's legs, and then ate him! She also took a bite out of my tail! When she took a nap, I took that opportunity to run away. And I had been running for 2 days.
I was tired, having hardly slept the last two days. My legs ached, and so did my eyes. Hell, I was a wreck! I was lucky to have found enough to eat during my escape. I shivered as the wind blew. "Dammit, it's going to be another cold night, I don't think I can survive another night like this!" I said, almost frozen. I looked up and realized I was in front of a house.

Lancer curled up under the rays of the hot sun. His white scales absorbed the light and practically illuminated the otherwise dark cave he called home. A cross breeze pushed through narrow openings in the walls to keep him cool. And his full stomach had been satisfied by the ripest fruits in the area. The serpent stretched his human upper half allowing the sun to warm his tanned skin and black hair. He rolled on the plush carpet of grass that lined the ground. The day was quiet, calm, and fine. Today, he reasoned, would be a perfect day.

She had no patience for boys.
They were loud, vulgar, and only bathed when forced. But in a small village you didn't get to choose your peers, or your potential mates. Even though it was a year or two away, she knew she'd have to get married some day, in the same way that she knew the sun would rise every morning: it wasn't something you needed to contemplate, you didn't even have to like it, it just was. Fishlegs was tolerable if boring, Tuffnut was best off totally ignored, and Snotlout was simply a pest, strutting around, always trying to touch her. She'd broken his nose more than once in their fourteen years, not that it ever changed anything.
There was, of course, a fourth choice. He would have normally been considered dead last among the list of candidates, except for the small fact that he happened to be the son of the village chieftain. Marriage wasn't about love, it was about attaching the family to

Summery: Faced with a fate worse then death one Blood Elf is determined to face his end with dignity, but what twists does fate have in store for him?
Important Notes: There are some things in this that relate to guild developed lore which has been developed over the years. These things aren't meant to change official lore, simply to fill in the gaps. Most prominent being shown here would be the Blood Elven lifespan. High Elves live only until they're 300, sometimes 350 if they're lucky. Blood Elves however haven't had a chance to tell what their max lifespan is but it's likely the use of Fel energy can lengthen their lifespan considerably. Elves who were young when they became blood elves won't really notice the difference but elders found that it had a youthening effect.
The events detailed in this fic are based around in game RP between my main Jaideng Dawnspark and other players during the WOTLK prelaunch and Death Knight introduction.

He lived with his mother, who was pessimistic on all counts, and felt that nothing could be done about any situations for them, or for the world as a whole. They had no solid source of income, and as they lived in a rural area in the midst of a drought, there wasnt much that they could do.Jack and the Beanstalk Satire7 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
After many months of minimalistic living conditions, the mother decided to send Jack to the closest town to sell the cow. It was also a way to get her son out of the house and into the world he loved to protect so much.

Also, as a vegetarian, he was against keeping cows for food.
