Chapter one: Welcome to DA
Dark Master's Journal
May 23, 2008
The day I joined DA was one of the weirdest days of my life. And that's not saying much, I lead a pretty odd life. But the first day I joined, I knew something...... I just don't remember what it is. But I know it was important.
The train station was packed with deviants of all shapes and sizes. All of them were waiting for a very special train that was coming today. This was the train the brought new Deviants from far away. All the deviants at the station were all waiting to greet their old friends, newly coming to join Deviantart.
They waited at the station looking at the empty train tracks. There was silence as they waited to hear the sound of the train, but this silence was quickly interrup

Helpless, body limp, tossed around like a ragdoll in the irresistible swirling current.
Spiralling head over feet, no sound but a bubbling and roaring cacophony filling every sense.
An odd sense of enveloping peace follows the chaos, plunging the world to deep blue.
D bolted upright in his small bed, torso soaking in a sheath of cold sweat. The same dream again for the third night in a row, he thought as he pulled himself to sit at the end of the bed. Shafts of sunlight were breaking through a small gap in the drawn curtains but the room was lit with a dim glow as D turned on the radio; perhaps there'd be something to take his mind off things there. He flicked through the channels absent-mindedly and scraps of broadcasts filtered through D's awareness.

Eson Region - Towns and CitiesSpectrum TownEson Region - Towns and Cities2 years ago in Settings More Like This
A small coastal town, Spectrum is best known for its Pokemon lab ran by the
illustrious Professor Fern, a young and fiery red-headed professor who is a lot
more interested in healthy field work and practical battles than the other
Professors. Its location has made it the perfect place for the annual Pokemon
Presentation Day - or PPD - where first-time trainers come from all over to
recieve their first Pokemon.
Set against the back of a forest, Charcoal town's fire type gym leaders -
Bernard & Bernadette (corruption of Burn) - are the foremen of a lumberjack
company that operate out of the area. Taking only dead trees and planting new
ones in their place, Charcoal Town's exports are many but include wood, paper
and most notably Charcoal which is used as fuel for furnaces to create metal.
The city supplies to places such as Galvalume and Cyan City and is surprisingly
important to Eson's economy.

Let me begin this rant with the disclaimer that I have nothing against Andrew Hussie's imagination, and I greatly respect the webcomic Homestuck. His work in creating an entire species cleverly based on human culture and even moreso the internet subculture is ingenious and I love it. Unfortunately, Hussie is not a bio major. He is not an expert on evolutionary biology, and he has made mistakes.
Trolls, biologically speaking, are a nightmare.
We start by taking an insect-based species and giving them mammalian traits. We make them comparable to Homo sapiens in proportions, height, weight, and function. Their intelligence level (on average) is also comparable to the human species. Hussie has established that the trolls are closely linked with humanity, both biologically and culturally. Now the problem with this concept? You're taking an organism from the Arthropoda phylum and trying to make it meet the functionality of an organism from the Chordata. It just doesn't w

Violet walk sluggishly as she makes her way through the hill that leads towards the Pummelo Stadium. She is so damn tired after the 10 hours of non-stop travel through planes and ships all the way from home up to this distant place of the Orange Archipelago.
This nightmare all started a few days ago while she was training her little Togepi when she received a mysterious message through her Pokedex. She actually found it very weird because all she knows is that the Pokedex is only meant to store and provide informations about Pokemons, but she never experienced ever since she received it from Professor Oak that it can be use as a mean of communication.
The message says:
Three days from now
The message was short and vague that she decided to ignore it at first, but two days later she received a package containing tickets that are destined to Pummelo Island, she realized it then that the me

After the War of Hawthorne, the region became destitute. The people were left elated knowing they were rid of a ruler who was riddled with greed and inconsiderate motives. But the relieved people and their Pokémon began to see how the War had ravaged their economy and destroyed what little crops they had. Hope of a renewed Hawthorne began to melt away like snow on a spring morning.
Just as Hawthorne began to fall completely into disrepute, there came a sighting of the legendary Pokémon Ho-oh. The legends said that its feathers were thought to bring joy, and that all who saw it were to be eternally happy. Ho-oh travelled across the land, gracing it with its powers; hope and happiness quickly returned to Hawthorne once more. From this moment on, the people of Hawthorne began to worship Ho-oh, not as a God, but as a bringer of good fortune and joy.
Ho-oh travelled throughout Hawthorne, and took its peace in the region where the King had once lived. This regi

Scribble. Scribble. Scribble...
A girl sat alone at a corner in the library, with a few books surrounding her, her camera and total bliss. Books on Photography, Drawing and a few novels were scattered around her. The window beside her was open, and a gentle breeze blew, her (h/c) hair slowly moving with the breeze around her. Her notebook had pictures of a variety of things, flowers, streets anything you could think of, because, to her, it was her passion. To draw life, wherever it may be, because there was life in everything.

A boy sat on a bench outside the library, reading the books he just borrowed. He preferred reading outside, as he found outside much more calming than the "tension" of studious students inside. He didn't need to study, he was a country after all. He almost forgotten the tension of studying, and he didn't want to remember it again. He noticed the breeze, and he let his eyes drift around.

You knew you were absent headed, were curious and got lost easily but did you ever listen to your gut? It was a rhetorical question but I'll answer anyways. The answer is no, you never listened to your gut and alway ended up in trouble. Today was no exception, the only difference was that you did it in a completely unknown place. I should explain, well in very simple words you were lost… lost in Italy. The only thing you knew was that you were in Siena, nothing else. You might be asking yourself if she's so absent minded why didn't she just get a tour group or something of the like, well I did! But I lost them as well, ugh, let me just start from the beginning.
My friend [f/n] had decided to move to Italy after finishing her degree on architecture, it was one her life-long dreams. She moved to Siena, which is in Tuscany, Italy by the way. This summer she invited me to stay over at her place so I could tour Italy to my hearts content, I ,of co

The Six Countries You’ll Date in College.
1. The Military German
Were you ever a sports girl? We dunno. Sadly the summer you spent cooped up in your house with your laptop hadn’t helped. Then… he walks in. You’ve never seen a black tank-top and green pants look better on anyone else. Still, you feel sorry for that Italian boy he’s always with… are they a couple? Still, you get close; maybe he’s a lot sweeter around women… he won’t pay attention to you. DAMN IT!
2. The French Rose
“Why the heck am I in this club?” you ask yourself. Then you look back at your French date… “Oh yeah; that’s why.” He saw you alone in the corner and brought you to the dance floor with him. The guy is sex on legs! And the night just gets more passionate from there. Cut to two weeks later

The shrill sound pierced the air, making your headache even worse.
Damn that Kankri Vantas...
"Cronus! That was a highly inappropriate thing to say! I am merely coming here to visit my dear moriail." he said to who you suspected was Cronus. Kankri really was a great moriail, he just always got off on the wrong foot. You thought of him more than a moriail, truth to be told...
There was a soft knock and Kankri's voice filtered in.
"______? Are you there?"
You sighed heavily before responding.
"The door's open Kanny~"
The door opened and in came Kankri in all his trigger happy glory. He was carrying a large stack of papers, his bright and shiny whistle bouncing off his red-sweater clad chest.

You were suddenly snapped out of your daze, directing your attention to your fuming Russian friend. If steam could come out her ears- wait there is. She crossed her arms and gave you a pouty look, with her amethyst eyes.

"Well, I've been calling your name three times already! честно, (Name).” Anya huffed, closing her eyes in disbelief.

Every once in a great while, a trainer arises from out of nowhere and ascends the ladder to stardom in the trainer world, becoming a true Pokemon Master and something that few other humans could ever hope to be in their long struggles through life. One such person is Red, a trainer known by everyone in the Kanto region as well as most of the world for his efforts in not only becoming the Champion of the Indigo League but completely and utterly destroying Team Rocket. When Red first became a trainer, he merely did what other trainers did and collected powerful Pokemon, battling and earning Gym Badges in the Kanto region. In addition, however, Red bravely faced the hordes of trainers belonging to the nefarious Team Rocket, a dark organization that was at its peak when Red first came into contact with them.

N runaway and forfeited from the battle when his camouflage was revealed while Sapphire had forfeited from the battle telling them that she needs to go after N. According to Sapphire, she'd been looking for N for quite a while for the reason that N knows something about a Legendary Pokemon that her father Professor Birch is currently researching.
So with N and Sapphire out of the tournament, the finalists are finally revealed.

And Christ has no part in your worldly addictions
The Bible's pages broken down into pieces and bits
Remolded to form the scripture of capitalists
The salvation meant to free the poor from their sins
Now the domain of intimidating, middle class individualists
The measure of godliness now the counting of blessings
The poor disregarded while we accumulate things
In our vain pursuits, our god is nothing less than money
The words of life twisted like adverts for economic commodity
I pity the man who walks into our walls
With nothing to offer, or anything at all
Yearning, groping for the Bread of life
Whilst imposing on our comfortable, self-imposed rights
The man who had no place to lay His head
Now the King of the rich and spiritually dead
He who fed thousands with bread and fish
somehow left a way for His flock to be selfish?
Hypocrites! How will we save others from Hell
when there is no love even amongst ourselves?

I was stressed. And that was an understatement.
Everything had been falling apart the past few days, the Imminent Will so obviously working against me right now, when everything needed to be coming together. The flavor we requested for the cake, after sitting hours and hours tasting cake after cake, was no longer an option, as it had been discontinued forever. The flowers we ordered had apparently all died from being overwatered-how they couldn't get more was beyond me. My dress was too big now because I had lost too much weight, and they couldn't take it in this short amount of time. If something could be going wrong, it was, and it was going wrong to the extreme.
And tomorrow was my wedding. Not in a few months. Oh no, that would be far too lucky. No, it was tomorrow!

First I hear the cracking. I can feel through my bare feet the hair-thin lines spreading across the ice. And then everything beneath me vanishes.
I fall, plunging into the icy blue depths, and watch, helpless as the jagged frame of pale light slowly slips further away.
I reach out towards the watery light, even as my fingers lose all feeling.
The cold presses in, seeping past my skin, spreading through my bones and into my heart.
But even as I sink, feeling my blood become ice, I close my eyes in relief, because she is safe.
Everything else fades away.
Except the cold.
It is the cold more than anything else that is suffocating. Pressing in, closing out all else. Taking away the light.
And it doesn't go away.
It seeps in, past my heart, beyond my blood, into my very soul.
And now my soul is slipping away, melting into the frozen water.
Memory becomes liquid and flows away.
