A pair of green eyes scanned the pictures in a therapist directory, flipping through page after page, staring at picture after picture- waiting to detect the perfect subject.
When suddenly the man stopped, and stabbed his finger in the middle of a page towards the end of the book.
“I want her!” He commanded at the other man in the room.
“I'm sorry, but she only handles patient paperwork and those sorts of things. She doesn't deal with high-class criminals, like yourself.” The opposite man quipped in a monotonic, English, accent.
“I don't care. I won't talk to anyone but her.”
“Why her?” The English man scratched at his chin.

Notes: (1) Always buy large skeins on wig construction, especially 1-or-2 toned wigs
(2) 2 Medium skeins will cover leg and arm warmer needs (color variations vary the amount used)
(3) Tail belts should never be more than 3 shades, and always wide enough to fit over your hips (its easier just to slip them n using a double knot than tying them every time and worrying that they'll slip off)
(4) Yarn left over from wig and warmer construction can be used to make the tail belt and shoulder fluff
(5) If 'Prom' gloves aren't handy, 'princess' dress up gloves from children's play sets can be used, or (if you have the skill), one can be made from an old knee sock or a stretchy shirt.
(6) $ 50 = unitard
$ 16-30 = 6-12 Skeins of yarn (dependent on color and character)
$ 6-10 = wig base
$ 17-30 = shoes (Jazz or Gymnastic,)

Puddin, please dont! Im sorry, I didnt mean to screw up again. Ill do better next time, I promise, Harley Quinn begged as two continuous streams of tears rolled down her white mask.
A cruel, mocking voice emanated from two bright yellow spots on the other side of the dark room, Thats what you said the last ten times, Harley. But dont worry, it wont happen again. The Joker stepped out of the shadows. His pale, white face and huge, twisted, red lips looked utterly demonic. I want you to say ello to my little friend, he said in a mock accent, referring to the crowbar he gripped with one of his gloved hands.

-Hold me in your warm embrace.
Stroke my hair.
Tell me you are here for me.
Don't leave me alone.
Wipe away my tears.
Kiss my cheek.
Hold on to me tightly.
-Whisper in my ear
That you love me.
Make me blush and embarrassed.
Give me that memory to cherish forever.
Til I stop pouring my heart out to you.
Lean your forehead against mine.
Tell me I'm adorable.
-Every word you say
Makes me weak.
Please make all the voices in my head disappear.
Please pull me out of the darkness of this bottomless chasm.
-Take my hand
And interlock our fingers together.
With you, I feel loved, cherished, and wanted.
I feel my heart beginning to heal.
-I don't want us to say good bye anymore.
I want my fantasy to be come a reality.
Lay with me, cuddle me, kiss me passionately.
Whisper good night.
When we have to be a part.
I don't like the distance between you and me.
Come a little closer baby.
-Don't change your thoughts about me?

The Bride of the Water GodThe Bride of the Water God5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Beneath the still, silver waters
The god in eternal silence sleeps
Waiting for the ripple of crystal tears
To shatter the mirror of dreams.
Beyond the reach of endless streams
Lies a treasured, fleeting love
And as the starlight fades to embers
The heavens stir, forever weeping.
Ice rims the verges of his heart
Withholds the blessed rain unfallen
And yet, yet she comes to stay,
This sacrifice for a dying land.
Beneath the moon's argent rays
The night-blooming cereus wakes,
Warms the cold celestial hand
To gently touch her shining face.
Above the lush earth and sea
The unbound heavens whisper softly
Of this cherished mortal, beloved
Of the god whose heart she keeps.

Jess breathed out a sigh as she could see that their cart was gone. That usually meant that they had gone for two to three days to do some trading. "Well, we're in luck. Just don't eat all of the chickens or else I'll get in trouble later. Hopefully I can find something in the house to serve as better clothing. Might just need a rag, a knife and some twine for all I know."
Looking around uneasily "I don't smell anyone else..." my ears becoming a little less droopy as my tensions eased. Bringing Jess to the counter size where I saw a lot of supplies laying around, "The chicken sound good, but I'll stick by you until you've gotten everything you need" I grinned, feeling like my old trickster self again in the farmers' house. My right ear flapping at the sound of clucking nearby "murr?" my eyes lit up a bit, having not entirely believed they were there to begin with.

"What are you, four?"
"It's almost Christmas," said Harley, insulted. "We can't not have hot chocolate, pudd'n!"
"Whatever," Joker giggled, ruffling her hair. It was his first communal breakfast on months, and she was ecstatic to have him join her little table of friends. Although, at any given time, the friends might be different; not many people could put up with her for long periods of time.
"I see you've gotten back into Arkham's good graces," observed Riddler, pulling up a chair with one hand and trying to balance his breakfast tray with the other. Since he was considered docile, Edward was allowed to have more meal choices than Joker, as well as the use of a plastic spork. Today his breakfast consisted of oatmeal, an apple, and milk.

Stephonika's Movie Review: MAN OF STEELStephonika's Movie Review: "MAN OF STEEL" - (PRE-SCREENING)Stephonika's Movie Review: MAN OF STEEL2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Rated: PG-13, for intense action and fantasy violence throughout
Never in my career would I have thought that I would find a movie worthy of a five-star rating, and never did I think the first film to garner that honour would be a Superman film because I've never bought much into this hero. In many films Kal-El has been too superhuman-ed and too impervious to allow for the average person to buy into his plight. His challenges have always been high above what any of us could do, but this film approaches the character in a way that humanizes him. He is still superhuman, but he has the heart of one of us in a way that is intangible for words and in a way becomes more human than the rest of the world.
In the days where audiences allow themselves to accept spectacle over substance, this film delivers what we have been needing since the super-energized computer generated

The first time he had laid eyes on you, Fish Mooney had told him that you had a voice that made heads turn and eyes widen in surprise. Oswald had no doubt about that since a beautiful woman like yourself would have an equally divine voice to match. He watched you with curious eyes, a small smile on his face, as the spotlight was lowered onto your (h/c) head. Your eyes were rimmed with black, making your (e/c) pop and when your eyes flickered upwards and met his, he felt his breath hitch in his throat.
“Don’t get too riled up now,” Fish Mooney said, giving him a look. “Just wait until you hear her sing.”
Oswald waited on by excitedly. You took a step up to the microphone; your blue velvet dress sparkling underneath the light. Your red painted lips parted and a voice sweet as honey that had a twinkling sound like wind chimes, was heard.

A Guide to ConventionsIt’s coming around to be just about the end-ish of convention season and most of the major cons around where I live are coming up, and I’m getting pretty hyped about Otakon coming up in 17 days myself! So, what better way to feed into the hype than to make an advice list?A Guide to Conventions5 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
1. Bring your own food
Speaking from experience here! Convention food is pricey and all around not worth it. If your hotel room doesn’t have a mini-fridge, bring non perishable things like trail mix, granola bars, jerky, generally healthy stuff. Most hotel rooms will have something like a coffee maker or a microwave. Take advantage of this! Bring instanoodles and ramen with you. Your wallet will thank you for it. Or if you don’t want to do that, try the app called Yelp to see what’s in the area. It is important that you eat at least two square meals a day, especially since at a convention, you’re going to be on your feet basically all the time. Keep yourself energized.

You were a fey, just like Maleficent, but unlike Maleficent your wings had never returned. You were deeply agonized at the thought of no longer being able to soar among the clouds, and just be absolutely free. You met Maleficent right after she had saved Diaval. You couldn't help, but relive that moment again...
"Hello?" You called out in distance feeling very uncertain in the field. You collapsed on the ground taking deep breaths and try to continue to walk, but failed to do so because of your wounds. "Are you injured?" You heard a distinct female voice ask with vague emotions. You look up and saw the one and only, Maleficent. You have seen her around the Moor before, but never really talked to her. You tried to straighten up, and did so. "My, my wings! Those humans
