You loved to go dancing at clubs since you were 17. It was your twenty-third birthday and your friends were either drunk, with drunk guys, or getting frisky with drunk guys. Ever since you stepped into the club you’ve felt a pair of eyes watch you from somewhere, but whenever you looked around, people were drinking, cheering to the music, or dancing; you felt your best friend’s hand on your shoulder hard as she said and you could easily tell she was drunk, “Wha-what’sh woring (name)” “Nothing and you’re so drunk. C’mon I’m taking you home”, you say as you grab her thin jacket and yours; you walked outside and dragged your friend home, it was obvious she wasn’t gonna use her legs. Thankfully, her husband was home and you told him she was

Hello folks, and now, I bring you a rant that has ABSO-POSI-LUTELY NOTHING to do with Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Thank god, cause if I have to make another "rant" regarding that game, I think I'd have to start a zombie apocalypse with some 245 - Trioxin. Instead, this rant is going to be on the subject of a game that has been the subject of tons of controversy.
If your a fan of Capcom, you'll probably be familiar with the famous hack-n'-slash franchise known as Devil May Cry. Well, in September 2010, Capcom officially announced that there would be a new Devil May Cry installment in the series. It would be an origin story that established how Dante, the main protagonist of the series, came to grips with his half-demon half-human heritage, and Capcom would outsource the game to Ninja Theory, a company known for only 2 major titles: Heavenly Sword and Enslaved.
With the announcement came a few screenshots and a trailer of the game. In the 4 Devil May Cry titles before this, Dante had s

You shivered as you walked up the bridge to Fortuna castle. You were helping with killing the demons that made their way to the human world. It was snowing hard, which was weird. A demon must be behind it. You walked into the castle, not believing what you saw. The entire floor of the castle was covered in icicle spears. There was little room to move. You managed to wall jump up to the upper floor with scarcely any ice. Most of the doors were blocked, limiting your options you wandered down some hallways, searching for any signs of life. When you rounded a corner, demons were stalking through the halls. You pulled out your sword, and ran at the demons, easily killing them. As you walked down the halls, you noticed how nice the castle looked, before it was sort of deserted. You were looking for a switch for the bridge leading to the forest. Dante, the famous devil hunter, was heading this way and you worked along side him sometimes. You had a crush on him, but neve

You remembered that day too. The first time you flew with Jack. You remembered how magical it felt, to have the wind embracing you. Lifting you. Carrying you.
To have Jack's arms around you.
You remembered the way Jack had smiled at you. The way he laughed. The way his eyes seemed to dim when you two parted ways.
But you also remembered his promise.
"Don't worry. I'll see you soon."
And you realise now, even as you sit alone, cold and afraid, uncertain and hurt in this dark world...
Deep down in your heart, you knew you would never stop believing him.
No matter what.
You would always believe in Jack Frost.

You looked towards the most over attached member of the guild, "Freed."
Freed looked somewhat shocked and looked towards Laxus, the Guild member which was in charge of the Thunder Legion. Laxus gave Freed a sort of nod of approval making Freed stand up and walk over to you. You always loved Freed's long green hair, when ever you looked at it you wondered how he could keep his hair undamaged. Freed stood up from his seat, and being the gentleman he was, held his hand down for you so you could get up. You followed Freed to the closet as Lucy opened the door allowing you and Freed to enter the closet.
"Well have fun in there you two," Lucy said as she closed the door.
You leaned against the wall of the closet, Freed following your actions. Freed was the proudest member of the Thunder Legion

There isn’t much to their relationship when it first began. It’s threatening, if anything else—at least, just in the beginning. There is the occasional glance, but mostly just snide remarks and ignored snarls, seeping hatred, some taunting Nightmares, but then Pitch delves down into his pit and disappeared for days on end. Jack doesn’t mind those days of utter silence, they remind him of the days before he was a Guardian—when everything was just fun.

You chuckled, a ghost of a smile coming to rest on your lips.
You remembered that day so clearly.
Your cage creaked as you shifted slowly, attempting to relieve yourself of the throbbing in your lower back. Your efforts bore no triumph on your part. But even so, despite your discomfort, your faint smile never waned. You were too busy -- Remembering.
Remembering the way the snow glistened, and the sheer beauty of the Lake.
And him. You couldn't help but remind yourself of him. Meeting him at the Lake's edge for the very first time. The way he grinned so confidently at you.
And you surely couldn't forget how shocked you were when he told you who he really was.
Your smile grew, but only slightly. For the sweet memories now plagued you with a bitter sadness. You often thought to yourself, as you sat alone in this cold dark world, how things could have gone so wrong.

Yes, that magical night seemed to set everything in stone.
And it was from that night that you thought, wrongly -- so wrongly -- Your life couldn't get much better.
For some time, it really did seem that way.
But of course, happiness knows no greater friend and enemy than sadness...
Pitch had grown bored with you, it seemed. You hadn't seen him for quite some time. That, or he had other things to attend to. More nightmares to spread. More lives to ruin. And as much as you wished to be freed of your prison, you couldn't help but with Pitch were back with you.
If only to make sure he wouldn't eat away other innocent children's belief.

Maddy's Game [Prologue]The ice cold floor seemed like it stretched down the hallway for eternity. Red splatters covered the walls and floor. A girl stood in the midst of this scene, her short brunette hair covering her face and her fragile body trembling with fear. Her grey-blue eyes wide with shock as she stared ahead of her. Bodies, everywhere. Some she recognized, and some she didn't. She was cluching onto something... A blade. A very large blade, at that. Had she done this? The answer... Yes. She slowly took a step back, clutching onto the blade tighter, the blood oozing onto her hand and down to her wrist. "I'm sorry...", she said, "I'm sorry... I'm sorry... I'm sorry...", she repeated as she fell to the floor.Maddy's Game [Prologue]3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Here is how the interview works: You can all ask questions and chat freely in the chatroom called AtAChat. I will be copy-pasting your questions to Alexiuss and he will answer them in live time in ATAInterview.
We conduct the interview this way to avoid having the artist spammed with too many questions all at once, and to reduce text clutter so that you can all read the artist's responses to the questions.
A special thank you goes out to our lovely mods, ~Melancholy-Minds and ~Twilight-Zero!
Please be aware that we do our best to get as many questions answered as possible, however, if we do not choose your question to send to the artist, please do not be offended. It does not mean it was not a good question. It is just not possible for the artist to answer all questions. Thank you for your understanding.

The fumes created a misty cloud of smoke in the air and it smelled slightly sweet though it irritated his eyes a little. “Just a little further,” His raven haired spouse whispered and she managed to pull away from the horde, finally advancing towards the back of the temple where the columbarium was located.Meeting Them: Part I2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"The world will know your name!"
“Children are beginning to fear me again!”
“I’ve grown quite fond of you, Jack Frost.”
“I won’t let you go.”
“I fear nothing.”
“Only you, Jack.”
Jack woke with a sudden start, nearly falling off of his branch and toppling into a heap of snow beneath him.
He looked around quickly, not really taking anything in, just looking for the source of the voice he thought he heard. He searched the bushes in front of him, the frozen lake beneath him, even the tree itself. There were idle shadows—but he knew better than to linger on them, for his mind sometime played dangerous tricks—but there was no one to be found; at least not in the physical realms around him. Jack slowly settled back down against his branch, his mind still buzzing, his heart beat echoing in his ears and his skin set aflame.

They were in the waiting room. Thor was extremely nervous, the reason Loki had come to stay with him. The God of Thunder, now wearing a simple but beautiful white T-shirt with jeans, walked around endlessly, murmuring something to himself. Loki, on the other hand, was sitting on the small seat next to the door, his suit swinging around as he tried to calm his brother down.
"Thor, please, relax! Jane will be fine, you just need to give her some time!"

His heart thumped furiously and his body’s temperature was high from the intense kiss just now. It felt too good to be true, Zhao Yun thought in a daze as he breathed in Ma Chao’s scent deeply. Mmmmm, he had a rich clean smell that always smelt so good. Ma Chao continued to look at Zhao Yun with a burning fire in his eyes, and then pulled Zhao Yun into a deep hug. ‘I love you,’ Ma Chao whispered breathlessly, his head buried deep inside Zhao Yun’s soft brown hair. Zhao Yun’s eyes watered when he heard those words but he struggled to maintain his composure. How many times had he hoped to hear those words from Ma Chao’s lips?

It's always seems to have found a loved one and all of a sudden when the world might be saved, and any time you can live in peace, he gets up on the other side. Virgil to the end lied to us, me and Kate, that all his works are aimed at the salvation of mankind. I certainly do not care about people, I'm not a man, but because he conceived, to do was simply impossible. They should be free, without anyone or oppression, or direction. Of course, a little stiffness could show, but it seems to me that my brother showed it constantly. Maybe I'm wrong, and it would be better than Mundus. On the one hand it does not matter, he's gone. But for how long? Who knows. Maybe now at this very moment he comes up with a new plan to power, which will help him to carry out, who be different. If this is so, then I would have to stop him, and this time he did not get off that easy. I'll kill him.

Remembrance Day originates at the end of World War I. The idea is to honor those who died in the line of duty, defending their country from enemies. For all its pompous words and fancy granite memorials littered with colorful flower bouquets, Remembrance Day and others like it have failed miserably in achieving this goal.
I've often been criticized as having no respect, and that can be an impediment when discussing certain topics. However, I am often in luck – hypocrisy deserves no respect. What changed as a result of the enormous sacrifice of those who died in WW1? As the first bombs of WW2 fell just two decades later, millions once again obediently lined up under various pieces of colored cloths to slaughter and be slaughtered. It became obvious that absolutely nothing had changed, and that the millions of WW1 had died in vain.
Most would agree that all that lip service paid to the sacrifice between the two world wars wasn't good enough. To truly honor their sacrifice would be
