This fine piece of writing, indeed art itself, focuses on all the different types of art theft, and how to understand them. It is so true, is it not? As a matter of fact, I was inspired to do a similar thing, but with trolls instead. True, some art thieves are trolls, but trolls are not all black and white. I will break down the facts that I know about them here. Yes, facts, not opinions. Tried and true by most of us here, because most of us have witnessed some sort of troll.
I have many specific examples, and I have battled with whether or not I was going to use actual usernames in my argument, and I decided against it, in the end. Giving particular examples would open up a can of worms we don't really need, and that is not what this piece is about. Adding emotion and pissing off said trolls would be detrimental. And so
What is a brony? For many people the term brony has become part of everyday life. but what is a brony? This is just a brief description of what exactly a brony is and what impact the community has on those who accept it and become part of it.What is a brony?3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Before we get into what a brony is you must first know about the show my little pony: friendship is magic. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a show produced by the HUB and made by Lauren Faust. for those of you who don't know who Lauren Faust is, she was the story writer for the Power Puff Girls, and Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends.
The goal for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic was to create a show that parents and older siblings could watch with their children or younger sisters and enjoy it. However, many of the bronies watch the show with or without little siblings. Therefore the target demographic was never just 4-10 yr old girls like most people thin

Well Teen Titans fans, the new cartoon series for the Titans, Teen Titans Go!, has been on the air for four weeks now. I don’t know about most of you guys, but I personally find this show quite entertaining! I had my doubts in the beginning; I was really worried that the show was going to bomb, not really because of the design the show adopted, but because I later learned that the creative team behind the show’s development may have barely did their homework.

Good stories have a beginning, middle and end,
Not necessarily in that order.
Every time I use to talk to you,
My speech sounded more
Like Morse code.

Is the civilian equivalent
Of trying to diffuse a bomb.

I wrote you letters
You never read.
I think I’m wasting my time.
I’m trying to relight old matches,
As if it will rekindle flames
That have vanished long ago,
Or make a house
Rise from the ashes.
I built you a house,
Made out of our memories.
I hope it can shelter you
In my dream, your silhouette
Tried to engulf me.
I managed to escape,
But I wish it had.
I burned the house down,
You’re a 6 year old girl
I’m a 3rd generations Asian-Canadian
Looking for a place I belong.
I don’t know you.
You don’t know me.

Its roars of weeping billow across the sky with deafening volume.
The clouds groan under the weight of their own tears,
The ground is flooded with their sadness.
All over the world, people mourn.
His family and friends, his fans...
Parents, grandparents, and children alike.
We have lost a role-model, a childhood...
All mourn for the loss of a legend..
A hero to many.
One who has bestowed so much happiness,
So much laughter and encouragement,
While he himself battled a war within his being.
How could this be? We ask ourselves.
How could someone so great
Fall to such depths?
But as these inquiries burn in our minds,
There is something greater to cling to within our hearts...
The mark he has left on the world.

desperate and panicked

tired and eager

but as if it were water - it slowly slips from her grip.
Every drop fallen, a missed opportunity.
Every crack between her fingers, so out of her control.
Helpless to her own undoing, she struggles to hold on.
Wondering how real it all was from the beginning.
Has she truly fooled herself?
Is it even worth still carrying on?
Letting go would simply end it all,
The struggles, the helplessness and the hurt.
But hope is the only thing stopping her.
Like a beggar on the streets, she hopes for someone to help fill the cracks,
For someone to give her the chance to overflow with opportunities once again.
For someone to believe in her.
And so with that little bit of dwindling hope,
She waits and watches as people go by.

The man walks out dejectedly and sees another man about to walk in with his dog.
"The bartender just kicked me out for bringing my dog, he's going to kick you out, too."
The other man smiles and replies, "Watch this."
He walks in with his dog, and the bartender says something, pointing to the door. The other man holds up his hands and says something, motioning to the dog. The bartender shrugs and holds up his hands in apology. The man with his dog stays and has a drink, then leaves.
The other man had been waiting outside and seen the whole thing. Shocked, he asks the other guy, "How did you do that?"
The other man smiles and explains, "I just told him that the dog was my seeing eye dog."
That's genius! Why didn't I think of that? thought the other man.
He then proceeds to put on his sun glasses and walk in with his dog.

The Tale of Princess Nami Ch. 3Ch. 3- Nami meets the GangThe Tale of Princess Nami Ch. 32 years ago in Romance More Like This
Nojiko paced back and forth in her room, staring at the floor. Tangerine sat on her bed, meowing worriedly as the elder princess looked outside her window. All she saw was the giant forest that surrounded the palace…but no Nami.
“NAMI~!!” she called out.
The only thing that responded was the sound of birds twittering.
Nojiko sighed before she sat down on her bed, her hands concealing her face, and Tangerine slipped her way into her lap, gently brushing her face against her stomach.
It has been exactly two days since Nami ran away, but she had not returned to the palace the night before, as she had promised her sister. However, the only one who did return was her panicked horse, and almost instantly, Nojiko had begun to fear the worst; that Nami had been eaten by the beastly Akainu.
However, Genzo, who never gave much stock into magic and lore, especially Akainu, immediately assumed that a gang of b

Sparks exploding around our bodies every single time,

He is the rain pounding on me, pouring into me.

He is so hot, smoky red hot lava hot.
Spicy, sizzling, blistery heat, always raising my temperature,
and I melt when I am near him.
Burning me with his passion, and then he erupts,
setting a blazing fire inside me.
It’s like a tornado.
Strong, and powerful, my heart races when I see him.
He plays with me, my head spinning like a carnival ride,
until I beg him to let me get off.
And he gets me off with dumbfounding ability,
leaving complete destruction in his path.
It’s like an earthquake.
Rocking me, he shakes up my world.
His violent vibrations making me quiver,
as the walls come crashing down around us.
And when it’s all over I continue to tremble for hours,

Everything Wrong With FF7 Advent Children-Who exactly is the odd message at the start of the film aimed at?Everything Wrong With FF7 Advent Children2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
-The film has approximately three different prologues – a pointless retread of the game’s ending scene, an enigmatic prologue involving Reno, and an extended backstory prologue about the game.
-Marlene portrays the Shinra company as the badguys in the whole backstory. Though it is true, she forgets to mention that Cloud’s group were ecoterrorists.
-Sephiroth looks awfully happy for someone who hates everything.
-The backstory prologue is useful for audiences unfamiliar with FF7’s universe, but only covers the basics, and the rest of the movie is built on what feels like a required established knowledge of the continuity, leaving the introduction of characters, locations and plot details a bit bewildering for the uninitiated. I’ve never played FF7 before but I know the basics of the characters and game.
-So what does Geostigma actually do beside make weird looking marks and contain the genes

from the fitful terror
of mine own heart
of my hardened soul
as my body moves
without either's permission
I let the melody's quake
keep me awake
though sleep still calls to me
in loving lyrics
I can't let myself believe
else the music may leave me
to dreadful whispers of silence,
I lose myself
amongst the veins
of dulcet flow
and elastic beats of rhythm
mimicking what I once hoped
was a living heart.
Cloaked in another body
of mellifluous hatred and love
I try to conquer my soul
my husk acting the motions
of its siege
a silent cry
with a hand reaching
for a sun seen only
by listening eyes.
I move and listen with my being
offer everything else away,

And I will tell you no more
If my passion is your crime
Then your love should be my law
I’m the exception to the rule
And the end of this blood line
I should hang my head in shame
I am repulsive by design
Allow me to elucidate
And I will tell you no lie
I am charged with being charmless
And I have no alibi
Feloniously you broke my heart
One chamber at a time
Though I’d expect nothing less
I am repulsive by design
Beware of the broken hearted
Indeed consider with caution
Repulsion cleansed my sorry soul
Such a spiritual abortion
But when a full term of sorrow
And low self esteem combine
I still remain unloveable
I am repulsive by design

In…celebration? Prepration? Of the new Teen Titans Go! series coming out on Cartoon Network, I’d like to take a look back at the original Teen Titans series, episode by episode, to remind us of the old times and discuss each episode. The good, bad and ugly of the series, if you will. So, let’s sit back and relive our childhoods.
Final Exam, as many know, wasn’t originally going to be their pilot episode, it was. And it was a very sucky start. Wait, wait! Don’t get upset, and I’ll explain to you why it was a very weak beginning to what grew to be a great show. Have you viewed this recently? Just watch the first minute and thirty seconds, pretending you’d never seen any of this show before, and this was the first thing you saw. Seriously. They open the series with that? A boring narration? Granted, I see what they’re trying to get at; they’re making the school for super villains look prestige and posh. It’s a joke. But it sucks
