Fill their aroma in my heart,
Envisioning such worlds apart
That more than my mind entices,
But also long hidden vices
That purge from my body with peace.
The warm air my world decreases
And makes only this world alive,
A pure land with its own pained life,
Where I can make all dark doubts cease.

"The cow is a successful animal. Also he is quadrupud, and because he is female, he give milk,but will do so when he is got child.He is same like God,sacred to Hindus and useful to man.But he has got four legs together. Two are forward and two are afterwards.
His motion is slow only because he is of asitudinious species. Also his other motion is much useful to trees, plants as well as making flat cakes in hand and drying in the sun. Cow is the only animal that extricates his feeding after eating.
His only attacking and defending organ is the horn, specially so when he is got child. This is done by knowing his head whereby he causes the weapons to be paralleled to the ground of the earth and instantly proceed with great velocity forwards."
That's how a would be IAS officer has described the Indian cow. Our beloved Indian cow. Holy cow, Hindu cow, Gau Mata, Dugdh Devi, Purveyor of the Dung in the words of Salman Rushdie, Phantom (short for phantom shitter) in mine.

It began with the smallest mistake,
allowing them to stay,
along with us as our guests,
and never go away.
They spread the snakes of hatred,
in every nook and corner,
and bit us all apart,
making us easy to conquer.
Like vultures tearing meat apart,
they tore away our unity,
making sure the cut once made,
would never heal again.
When Oppression finally opened our eyes,
oceans of blood drowned us,
into the depths of darkness,
where once entered can never comeout again.
Until one day when he arrived,
bringing along the rays of freedom,
carried us up away from darkness,
and showered the glory of 'satyagraha'.
He healed the cuts of hatered,
and pulled us all together,
reminding us about who we are,
the children of the 'Golden Bird'.
When they heard the voices of freedom,
they knew they had to leave,
decided to make a final cut,
a cut that hurts even today.
But at last at the stroke of the midnight hour,
when the world lay in slumber,
the sky was filled with a sparkle of a bird,

Beth sat before the fireplace in her bedroom, her feet tucked beneath her and a blanket wrapped around her shoulders. She was still trembling after all that had happened, and though she tried to breath evenly, her heartbeat wouldn’t slow even a little.
Garrett had disappeared several hours before with an unconscious Fiona in his arms and a shaken, bleary eyed Mr. Gibbs close at his side.
Beth had asked to help, wanting to be close by when Fiona woke, but both men had insisted that she too needed to rest after her ordeal, and so she had been left with no other choice but to wait anxiously in her bedroom for word of Fiona’s condition.
In an effort to keep her mind off of her worry over Fiona, she busied herself by removing the bandages from her arm and leg.
“Strange,” she murmured when the bandages fell away. Not a scratch marred her pale skin, and there were no scars. To anyone else, it would appear

A Badass Pro-Maiko ArgumentINTRODUCTIONA Badass Pro-Maiko Argument5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I didn't think they still existed, I really didn't--Super Zutarians, I mean. I realize that there are still those who ship Zuko and Katara, and that's fine, whatever floats your steamboat--but I thought that the end of the series pretty much ended the "OMG ZUKO SHOULD BE WIT KATARAAA<33333 AND NOT THAT FREAKIN' EMO BEEYOTCH!!!!" discussions.
I was wrong.
Truly, one would think that Super Zutarians would eventually embrace the light, or at least acknowledge the light--that light being the well-thought-out rebuttals to various Pro-Zutara forum rants. However, I recently was involved in an argument with what I thought was a dying breed, wherein I was called some vaguely amusing names, told to shut up multiple times, and asked to present my Pro-Maiko argument in a more intelligent light.
So, here. I present to you all an essay, part for spite and part for enlightenment, on one of the most plausible and most romantic kids' cartoon couples I h

One day when I was on deviantart, it occurred to me that OCs and RPCs have become so much less creative and substantial. Now when I say this I'm not referring to all, so don't start flaming me. I actually love making OCs and RPCs, but there's a fine line between good character and Mary Sue. Also I've noticed that fanfictions have also succumbed to this horrible fate, but let's start from the very beginning.
The Workings Of A Good Character:
Special Powers, Demons, etc.
When making an OC, you need to keep in mind that no matter what you want to do, it needs to fit into the fandom. By this I mean don't make up that your character is the jinchurriki of the "17 tailed monkey turtle" or something. Demons, most of the time, are a no go. If you really want to include something, then dumb it down a bit. Like instead of saying "Only she has the ability to channel poison into her chakra flow and that kills everyone so she pwns!

Gilbert seemed to take your silence to his advantage. Suddenly both his hands were cupping your cheeks, pulling your face closer as his leaned in. For one tense moment there was nothing but a couple centimeters of air between both of your lips.
"Ich liebe dich, (name). Ich liebe dich."
And then those centimeters of air were gone and replaced with Gilbert's smooth and confident mouth, and it felt like the entire universe had suddenly exploded.
Shock raced through your veins like mercury, making your limbs feel heavy and your eyes slowly slide shut. Your head tilted slightly, hands quivering as they grasped Gilbert's forearms for support. A small sound emitted from your lips, a somewhat squeak muffled by the barrier of his own meetings yours, and all you could think about was how perfect the moment felt.

He parted the curtain to find his wife lying in bed, the sun streaming through the windows and falling gently upon her face. She cradled a small bundle to her chest, her usually emotionless eyes smiling.
"I'm so sorry I couldn't get here sooner!" Zuko told her, out of breath. "I wish I hadn't missed it, Mai." He approached the bed, his robes flowing behind him. He leaned down to press a kiss to her lips.
"It's okay," she replied, lifting the small child off of her chest, "Zuko, meet our son."
The young firelord's shaking arms extended and gently took the baby boy from his wife, holding him to his chest. He cradled his son's small form delicately, knowing that in his hands was the most precious child in the world. His son was so small, so light, and so amazingly perfect that Zuko could not tear his gaze away. Love of the purest kind filled his heart, making everything seem lighter. Holding the infant in one arm, he reached up with the other hand and

It all started with the day love blossomed. Such a poetic start to such a sad tale. Their love was perfect, pure, and true. It seemed as if nothing could separate the Prince and the girl he loved.
Prince Gregory was prince of a small kingdom. He was not only kind and just, but he was handsome and sought after by just about every woman in his kingdom. But he cared for none of that. At the time his love was his kingdom and his passion was to protect the people in it.
That was until he met the woman that changed everything.
Her name Lorain. Her hair was long and a dark reddish color that looked almost brown. Her eyes just a shade darker than her hair.
“Thank you,” she whispered at the handsome stranger who had picked up her handkerchief. She blushed as their fingers touched when he handed Lorain her handkerchief.
The prince was too entranced, “You’re welcome…milady.”
Lorain looked down at her feet as her blush threatened to ove

2. Denying logic. I found one particular deviation that clearly stated, and gave out proof that the bible has been modified greatly throughout time so that we aren't really one hundred percent sure what the bible meant to say. Then there was the guy who went on a rant that it wasn't modified, it was merley re-written in the same languages a bunch of times so it would stay "modern"
