Beyond Good and Evil novel 2Jade dug into her thoughts for the years of higher conscious meditation she'd undertaken. Most of the teachings were aimed at relaxation and encouraged its followers to embrace and confront their emotional responses, but there were also lessons for quelling emotions and allowing logic and instinct to guide a disciple's actions when need called for it. Jade directed her thoughts in the way her teachings had instructed and felt energy and strength flowing through her to wash away her fear and concern.Beyond Good and Evil novel 25 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She felt herself become ready for combat.
Jade snatched a long wooden stick from the ground, one end a burning, spitting ember. The girl rushed the DomZ holding Fehn, braced the stick as an extension of her elbow, and thrashed at the mobile coffin. It took two blows before slithering away. Jade meant to follow, but in those few seconds the other two DomZ had flanked her. She turned to the one on her left, knocking its reaching arms aside with a right and left swing of her makeshift weapon.

Another Language called EnglishI took your adjectives for granted. There was something about the way you skipped over your 's'es and gleaned over your 'i's and 'e's, that never really made me want to kiss you. You'd sit there with your languid fingers clutching a book that was half finished, and read me words that were completely mispronounced. It would prickle me under my skin and I would grit my teeth, wondering when you would stop. I would never understand the english language you thought you spoke, and your confidence in your own words annoyed me.Another Language called English2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The events taking place in the show are all the delusions of a group of kids in a children's psychiatric facility.
That's why the parents never see anything and why everything is so easy to do in that world. In reality, Phineas and Ferb's inventions are made of toys. The reason nobody ever gets hurt on anything is because (since they're locked up) the toys their inventions are made from are childproof to prevent their use as a weapon. The reason they "disappear" at the end of every day around the same time is because they have scheduled time to play with them.
The reason the parents go away so often during the episodes is because, while they visit as often as possible, they aren't allowed to be with their children all day. The kid's minds make the grocery excuse to explain why the adults are so often absent.
Phineas is Schitzophrenic and detached from reality. He's so happy all the time because of the mood stabilizer's he has to ta

She could not believe what Bentley, the person she had thought was the most earnest and intelligent in this group, had just planned. Sure, they needed a distraction, something to make sure that the guards would not get in their way. The door, after all, was complex and they would need a lot of time to properly unlock.
Why, then, did the plan involve her belly-dancing? Considering what she had seen Bentley do and how he had planned many intricate things, this somehow did not feel right. She could see that perhaps someone else had influenced him somehow. Having a pretty good idea just who had carefully suggested this approach to him, the police officer wasn't at ease at all with what would soon happen.
Looking at the costume that Salim, Sly's ancestor, had brought for her, she had no idea if he had gone for a more decadent or more modest version of what consisted of a belly-dancing costume. Everything was made of thick silk of a purple colorization, with a top revea

After I decided on asking her, Liz and Patty just HAD to tell Maka, who told Soul who, along with Black*Star, made fun of me every time I saw them. Luckily, no one had told Crona. When I finally called her to ask her out, I imagined her blushing on the other side of the phone while Maka giggled in the background. What I got was Ragnarok interrupting every other word I was saying so I ended up just walking straight up to Crona and asking her in person, of course, I was extremely embarrassed.
Honestly, when Kid asked me out on a date I was really happy. I like all my friends, but I like Maka and Kid the most. As I stood in Maka's bedroom, I couldn't help but smile at the thought of me being alone with Kid. "Here, try this on," Maka said handing me a light pink dress. I put it on, but I didn't like it.
