At first, it was amazing. As a freshly-recruited maintenance engineer on the Luxury Star Cruiser The Astronut, Barry had found his new home and workplace full wonders. He walked through rooms so tall he couldn't see the sky; he swept up litter from artificial beaches which captured more beauty than the real thing; he watched the stars pass by like rain from the sweeping observation deck.
And, of course, he had his Infinity Fridge.
An Infini-Fridge 9000 was standard-issue hardware for a Luxury class cruiser, but Barry had never seen anything like it. In the slums of his native Bomalomalom, pretty much everything was finite (except perhaps for misery). Water was rationed. Food was served via nutritional pills only. Even electricity was limited to ten tera-watt-hours per day. That was barely enough to run a sens-o-vision sim and have enough left over to purify your evening drink.

Careless hopes, dreams wide, menthol cigarettes.

Iridescent flickers of color
Float carelessly throughout the air
Resurfacing the wanders of the unknown
While exposing the passions within
The flames of the heathen blaze
Burst forth in sentimental dance
Exploding the tendencies of lacking thus
The infliction no longer dispersed
How I long of that fire
That flare of confession
Which leads and forgives and disappears
While leaving behind charred souls
My heart is made of coal
No longer of the nightly failings
But rather of the sky light sparks
That disappears behind rusted remarks
The spirits of the flourish
Tend to all my worthless cares
They bring up to the feelings of thus
The life circle...

“So, you’ve been lying to us these past thousand years or so about how you found Iceland?” Denmark asked, completely serious. Norway nodded his head, his hands clutched tightly in his lap.
“Why?” came Sweden’s one-word question.
“I was afraid that the settlers were going to look for her, and I wanted to let her be free to do what she wanted to do without our interference,” Norway replied, looking down at his hands before back up at Sweden.
“Then why did you lie to us? We wouldn’t have gone after her,” Denmark asked. Norway started to feel as if he was being interrogated.
“I was afraid that you would tell someone. I meant to tell you guys after all our raids were over, but by the time the end of the Viking Age had come aro

Woody was my idol. I had his entire costume hanging in my closet. I owned four different versions of the Woody doll, including one that sang. I would eat off of plates with Woody's face on them, drink from cups bearing Woody's signature boots. I even wrote "Andy" on the bottom of my shoe just to show the world just what a dork I was, and that I was Woody's "favorite deputy."
I wouldn't eat vegetables until my parents began calling bell peppers "cowboy peppers." I learned the Spanish terms for cowboy phrases. I almost got over my fear of horses just because I wanted to be a cowboy like Woody had been.
I was a small child when I was this obsessed with Woody, and when I got older and my brother was born, he was more of the Buzz type. We would get into arguments about which was better: spacemen or cowboys. But after I showed him the origin of Buzz Lightyear - the original Toy Story movie - we began to play together i

Ok, so I think everyone knows that Valve make GREAT games! But they don't just make there games good, they make them interesting. By which I am referring to the many questions, slash mysteries, found throughout their games.
There most famous mysteries are mostly found in the half life series, especially theories on the illusive 'G-Man'. But the one I want to talk about is in Portal 2: The mystery surrounding Chells origins. There are many other Portal related mysteries I do have theories on, but for now I'll just go Nostalgia Critic on this one, which in my opinion, is by far the most interesting

You didn't know what to say. What could you say? Here you were, next to this tall, dark skinned, brown eyed, muscular, attractive looking man, who had just asked you a question. One that had already slipped your mind. What was that question again? How could you forget? Now, the more you thought about it, the less you could remember it. What on earth was the matter with you? Did you drink too much ale? No... that couldn't be it. This was your first glass.
The male next to you cleared his throat and rose his eyebrow, very patiently awaiting your answer. Not remembering what he'd said, you gave an awkward smile and rose your glass before taking a large drink of it. The male knit his eyebrows together in wonder of what you were doing before he asked his question again.

You were scared and alone. You only felt the ghost of Gamzee’s hand.
You were certain that you were dead.
A hard surface met with your feet. Startled by the touch, you flopped forward and fell onto a cold, hard, grainy surface. You felt a slight breeze brush your skin. A loud whooshing noise crescendoed, then softened, overtaken by the sounds of a busy city.
Your eyes flashed open to reveal....
Concrete. You were lying on a cold, hard ground...of concrete.
Well, this was interesting.
You shot up into a sitting position and observed your surroundings. You seemed to be in some sort of alley. Two brick walls enclosed you on either side, one covered with windows and stairs. You noticed a large dumpster bin beside you, and it reeked of dead meowbeasts.

The overhead sun with its sweltering rage, beat down relentlessly upon me, as if fulfilling a personal vendetta. Beads of sweat rolled down the curve of my back, causing the black fabric of my tank top to stick and cling to it. I could almost feel my pale skin burning beneath the rays, and my long, brunette curls hung heavy and hot around my neck and shoulders. Wearily, I reached around the back of my head, pulling my hair to the side, the hazy, unforgiving sun zapping my strength, as I nearly collapsed onto the ground, letting the sleek black bag I had shouldered, fall beside me into the burning sand. Breathing laboriously, I rose up onto my knees over the bag, unzipping it with extreme care. As hot and miserable as it was, I could feel the tremors of excitement in my fingers as I eased the long and narrow bag the rest of the way open. I had a mission. A real, Starfleet Mission, from none other than Captain Kirk, himself!! A mission...... that could potentially save the world.

Filia couldn't help but tremble slightly as she stood in front of the temple of the Fire Dragon King: a place she never thought she'd return to. It had been her home for many years, but after the events of the previous year, she no longer belonged there. It seemed to her that its grounds and halls should be filled with only echoes - ghosts of a once bustling community of dragons. After all, they were massacred. She'd seen them die with her own eyes, just as the prophecy foretold.
But only a year later it was full of energetic activity once more. Around the grounds, dragons in their proper forms were busy with construction efforts to expand the size of the temple. Closer to the interior, dragons in their human forms strode through the halls carrying clipboards with palpable purpose. Everyone seemed to have a job to do.
After the loss of the entire population of the temple of the Fire Dragon King, the dragons of the other temples had been forced
