Of Nerdiness and FandomsBeing a nerd is awesome
There's so much to explore
From manga to anime to gaming to cult shows
There's so much out there to enjoy.
Being a nerd is lonely
When there's no one who enjoys it too
At school, without a fandom peer
Being a nerd is amazing
Because you're never really alone
There's so many out there who love what you do too
From fan fictions to art and even music too
Who cares about the haters
When we stick together

You were quietly arranging the flowers sitting on the window sill. You had no idea why, because they were perfectly fine. Oh, that's right...the Elric Brothers were in your house. your house. Well, your dad's house but...they are still here! They needed to ask your father about something. You sat on the chair closest to the window. They sat on the couch across from you and your father. While Edward, the oldest of the two, and your father discussed alchemy you couldn't help but take glances at the large armor sitting near the alchemist. You heard stories about them, especially since you were into alchemy yourself. But this is the first time you ever actually saw them. Or, him.

You bounded out of bed and pressed your face to the cold glass pane of the window peering outside. A huge grin attacked your petite pale face as you saw the blankets of white ice and snowmen that seemed to have appeared just overnight. Winter was by far your favorite season of the year and the feeling of snow between your fingers was just indescribable. You found yourself tracing your finger around the patterns of icicles that had formed on the window.
The voice shook you out of your daydream and you jumped back as your best friend Jamie Bennett appeared in front of your window with a snowball and wooden sled. Even though he was now sixteen he still had the energy of a ten year old.
"Come outside! We're gonna get the gang together and have the first snowball fight for the year!"
Jamie was practically jumping up and down with impatience.

I begin the path of fantasy.
Decide who and what I’m looking for.
Open my mind and heart,
Keep reaching deeper,
Until I find the seam that connects me.
I loved from beyond the fabric of this reality.
If I could just reach far enough to make contact,
I might be free.
Feel wanted, loved, needed.
No longer alone.
Imaginary or hallucinated,
They still consume my emotions.
Prove your worth.
I dare you to prove that “real people” are best.
That they won’t hurt me or leave my lonely and vulnerable.
I need to find a way to go back.
Lately I can’t think clear enough to attempt contact.
A Quick Moment In Light of Robin WilliamsI usually don’t do these types of things, but to hell..I feel like it today.A Quick Moment In Light of Robin Williams1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Williams was a treasure, and I think the world morns for him so greatly because we’ve all come to love him in different aspects of our life. People my age remember movies like “Aladdin” or “Mrs. Doubtfire”, and the older of us remember that as well as his early comedy. But actors can be around forever, as they do.
But I think why we hurt more than usual..is that there was something about Williams that made him so likable and full of the human spirit that let everyone latch onto him, and maybe this is why it hurts as much as it does.
And of course, the probably circumstances of his death. Depression can harm, from the exterior, the most happy and joyful people. I know, I’ve been there.„and I’m sure people would be surprised to hear that coming from me, but the point still stands.
So I say, let us morn as world then those divided.

Spinning 'round and 'round
All around, the ticking of clocks
Such a discordant sound
Right is left and left is right
Night is day and day is night
Up is down and down is up
Life is death and death is life
Voices whisper from every niche
Screams echo and cause a twitch
Claws and teeth threaten to kill
Eyes wild with bliss of such a thrill
Run, hide, fight, or plead
Nothing shall work, nothing you need
The sun and moon will laugh as you cry
As the Queen shrieks her commands to the sky
Blood forms penumbras as heads roll
A cry of defiance with each bell toll
The jury turns in accord, madness shining bright
Their question full of words to make your skin crawl with fright

shadows always seem to follow me
but you’re the light that chases them away
and no one else can bring light,
into each new day
there’s no one
and where were you when I
was searching for the day
the shadows found me
and swallowed my soul
I tried to find the sun
I tried to find my love
my love, love
there were whispers in the air
and in my heart, a slight tear
the one who keeps me safe
has left me to the darkness
there’s no one
let me love again

A Brother Never ForgetsAlthough he would never say it, this was undoubtedly going to be one of the most difficult things he would ever have to do. Shining Armour, one-time Captain of the Royal Guard of Canterlot, now a Prince of the Crystal Empire. He and his wife, Princess Cadence, had been sent word of a very special arrival to their Empire today, and both were waiting in anticipation of it. The crystal guards had been placed on either side of the great entrance to the palace, and they were now awaiting word.A Brother Never Forgets2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Cadence, always attuned to her husband's feelings, took just one glance at him and gained a look of concern. His expression was hard, almost cold.

Still, she did what she could, placing a hoof on that of her husband, gaining his attention. One look towards her, one look at the warm smile she gave him, and he was ab

These are the thoughts of an everyday murderer
A murderer not guilty but killing anyone but himself
A murderer who cant finish the job

I feed on your sadness and have thrived through the years
This power and hunger you give me has given me thirst
Thirst for your tears

The more I want
If only you knew me
The more broken you are
The even stronger I am
Though I haven't shattered you yet
I'm already preparing your coffin
Get ready to work my little tortured soul
Get ready to ride all alone and cold
Cause I'm gonna finish the job this time

No more tears on your pillow
No more wishes of death now
For you are finally asleep
Asleep until the morning
If its the darkness of every morning that keeps you alive
This twisted little story called your life

It was safe to say you had seen most (if not all) of Alphonse's different faces. Having known him since he was still just a soul attached to a suit of armor, you had the chance to truly get to know your best friend for his personality. You had easily learned that he was eager to please, always placing others before himself, and had the endless patience of a god. But, despite the lengthy list of his positive traits, Al was still human. He knew fear and insecurity as well as the back of his hand, and hatred was no stranger to him. In the two years you had known him, you had gotten to see him at his best and worst, but you stayed by his side no matter what. While he was everyone else's rock, you were his, and you helped keep him grounded long enough to develop a close, mutual fondness with the young male. Little did you know that, as your feelings began to evolve and branched into an unexplored area, Al's were quick to follow.

It was a cold night in Resembool. The air was icy and dense and it sent shivers up your spine. You hated the cold, since it felt like tiny daggers were poking you when it touched your delicate skin, and it made you extremely lazy; since who would want to move when they're comfy under a warm blanket and sipping hot chocolate? Ed and Winry were fast asleep, at least, that's what you thought, and they weren't going to bother you when you were in your 'I need some quiet time' bubble.
You stared at the flame that blazed in the fireplace and suddenly thought of Roy; about how he and Riza were obviously in love. Everyone knew it, except

So I ended up feeling worse than before, and went outside to get some peace. One of my dogs followed me out, and sniffed around for a few minutes while I sat in a quiet spot and cried. Then something remarkable happened, and made me realize just how valuable the love of a pet can be. My dog, the new little puppy named Xena, came over and started whining. She pawed at my arms and looked up at me, trying to get my attention.
I realized what she was doing when I looked at her. In those big, brown eyes was concern and love, and as she climbed into my lap and began to lick my face, I couldn't help but laugh. She had sensed I was very upset, and was trying to cheer me up. Her innocent sweetness and unconditional affection made me unders
Red Riding Hood and the Beast Once upon a time, there was a young beauty who always wore a red hood that her grandmother made for her. Therefore, she was known as Red Riding Hood, but everyone just called her Red. She stayed with her grandmother, because her parents were lost when a plague had swept the land. Her house was located in an enormous forest that was peaceful and beautiful by day but dreadful and eerie by night. Every day, Red would take her basket and walk down a dirt road until she came to a little town. There, she would get whatever her grandmother asked her to buy from the market.Red Riding Hood and the Beast2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Looking for words
With fingers frozen over keys
Thinking, searching, worrying,
Hoping, remembering, lips biting
To turn ideas into letters
To build words from ink
And breath spark of life into names on paper
Always hesitating after typing last space
New image painted in black and white
New people with electronic blood
New space at the end of sentence
After last dot nothing follows

Pause which shouldn´t be there
Couldn´t be there

Only fingers over keys
Always waiting for more

But like I said that day
I am evil, it is no bluff
So you can try to push me aside
But I will not falter
I will always provide
You’re much needed shelter
From all that you fear
And all that you hate
So don’t you worry my dear
I will be guarding the gate.
