I raise my voice up to the wind
I will hold them high above me,
And honor their memories
For the rest of my life,
I will pray for those left behind,
And for the Fallen...
The Fallen, they did not want to die,

Tell me, what would you do,

Just what tomorrow brings,
They have to live for today,

We Need Villains NOT HeroesFor the longest time I have admired heroes. I imagined them to be people of change, people who would bring the world forward and take us to even greater heights. It was then however, that I realised the 'Human Obstacle'.We Need Villains NOT Heroes2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Humans as I discovered, perhaps in the most painful of ways, are rather unintelligent beings. They are driven by their core instincts no matter how much they wish to deny it. And the only difference between one and the next is how deeply they let those instincts consume them.
If you walk out into the streets, you can see the well-adjusted average man. Yet in his mind he is not considering the good he could do with his life, he is only thinking about the next step. Where will I go next? Who will I be dating, what shall I enjoy next in life?
There is no thought of altruism; no sense of assistance for another. He could walk down an alleyway filled with the homeless and nothing would change...
If that is the case, then what is the path of truth? Is it doing

~Guidelines of Halloween~
1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it's really dead.
2. Never read a book of Demon Summoning aloud, even as a joke.
3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.
4. If children speak to you in Latin or any other language, which they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids whose eyes glow and speak with somebody else's voice.
5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone.
6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.
7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This woul

Despite the poor reception he had received today, Once-Ler found himself in an undeniably giddy mood as he strode back to his wagon. He was whistling lightheartedly as he packed up all his belongings, jumping upwards and taking the reins. He couldn't really explain why he was feeling this way; after all, when he thought about it, his day in town had been just as awful and unsuccessful as always. For whatever reason, though, he was feeling decidedly confident that, soon enough, things would get better.
After all, he had a chance now. Now that he had talked to Norma earlier today, he knew for sure that she took him seriously. Or at least was polite enough to pretend so, anyway. As long as he had her attention, he would have a potential customer. And if he managed to sell her a thneed, then maybe everyone else would finally just...wake up.

For all new authors who need help with keeping the characters of the Jak and Daxter universe 'in character', just follow these simple guidelines! Take it from an author who has been writing Jak and Daxter fanfiction for four years, and has hundreds of fans.
Jak/Mar/Jak Mar (Post-Prison): Make him every single jerk you've ever known. Go completely over-board on contempt and angst. As long as you remember that, no matter how hot he is, he is a bastard, you'll do just fine. And about his name? Whichever name sounds right to you, go ahead and use it. In terms of romance, the two main pairings for Jak are Keira and Ashelin, Yaoi lovers seem to like Jak paired up with Torn or Daxter. Pick your favorite pairing, and defend it by the skin of your teeth. (Jak/Keira 4ever!!!!)

Oh Mother, Father, I'm sorry for all my lies
Thanks for always being there, to soothe me when I cried
Oh Brother, Sister, I doubt I'll see you soon
It's time for me to go, in these old worn out shoes
Their ego growing bigger, I steer away from the crowd
Hoping they'll disappear, just maybe somehow
"I only wanted to be loved", I scream out
If I could only find, some special way to rewind,
Cut out part of my soul inside
Oh "Love your neighbor", said the savior
No one listens to his show
Yeah "You're just a nothing, you don't matter!"
Why not? I don't know!
I got hurt trying to dream of, filling the gaps behind the seams
Someone tell me the truth,
What does life mean?
To all my classmates, this is my final goodbye
None of you stopped to help, when I felt lonely or when I cried
Is this honestly what you see in me? Is this honestly what you see in I?
Is this honestly what lies underneath? Is this honestly the ugliness inside?

The flames all a different color,
And the smoke falling in peculiar patterns,
From each and every blaze.
The burning bonds still radiate a heat,
That when you touch them,
You'll still feel a little burn.
With every memory,
Scorching back through your heart and mind.
And the scald marks never fade,
They just cool a little,
Ever tingling, ever prickling,
With the injuries you sustained.
The infernos create a pretty little light show,
In the night sky of your heart.
As you sit on your island,
Watching them all go up in flames.

“I want to be stronger.”
They don’t sink in anymore because we've overused them.
“Why doesn't anyone love me?”
No longer can we start a revolution, or inspire a world.
“We can do it! Keep on fighting!”
Instead we wind up sounding cliche.
“I want to die”
No longer are we the poets who make people cry.
“Life is shit”
Instead we leave a blank feeling, because we've heard it before.
So we are left with this emptiness.
But that can’t be true.
Because it’s too cliche.

There would be no sardonic Vulcans or Andorians;

It ranked up there with the day that you realized that everybody else saw the you in the mirror, not the you inside your head. Not the you that was lean and tough and clever, not the you with perfect hair and a resonant voice that never said “Um….?”

Your name is (y/n) and you are 16 years old. You live in (y/c), which is a new country. It used to be under a different name but after a terrible civil war- (which your dad won!) - things have gone back to normal. Better than normal actually, before your country was known for causing problems and being violent. Now your country is peaceful, and it’s all thanks to your father, who is the elected leader and war hero of the people. Your country is a democracy, so even though your dad will rule for the rest of his life, you will not inherent it. You know you could join politics and become the president but neither you nor your dad think it’s a very good idea. You do not want any corruption charges so soon after the civil war.
