UsedI gave a small sigh as I walked into the shared bedroom. Classes for the next week were starting up again the next day, and I was getting tired of being outside I had been for most of the time as of late. If I wasn't outside I was in one of the old, abandoned classrooms. I didn't have to spend my time with anyone there..... No roommate that would make his presence known all the time; even if he was just sitting on his bed, and writing all the time. Being outside didn't help all that much either. Sure, Ran normally wasn't out there, but there were all the other students that enjoyed being out in the "fresh air"....Used2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The emotions that had been flowing through me as of late were very powerful. I didn't bother to label off every single one, but one stood out as clear as crystal hurt. It wasn't that I was physically hurt I had healed fully days ago but it was my mentality that was the one hurt. I will admit that I was never the most stable to begin with

"Nah." I shook my head before commenting playfully. "She's my third favorite girl. Sammy is my first, you're my second, and Lillian is my third favorite." I watched as a frown fell onto his facial features, and it made my smirk widen. He should have known me well enough by now I wasn't going to stop teasing him. "What's wrong?

A boy of nobility becomes a page, a page becomes a squire, and a squire becomes a knight. Only then does a son of privileged blood become a man in the mountains of Nebo.To become a page, a boy needs only to reach the tender age of eight. An inevitability. To become a squire, a page needs only to reach the age of twelve. An inevitability. To become a knight, a squire must endure four years of arduous training to condition both the body and soul in such a way that befits a professional warrior and pleases the Phoenix. At the end of this training, the squire is put to the test. He must earn his knighthood by engaging in combat and killing at least one of his kingdom’s enemies. After completing this task as to which the outcome is most uncertain, only then can a squire become a knight.

Trembling hands fought to hold onto the sharpened knife within their grasp, the fidgeting fingers nearly letting the glimmering handle to slip from their grasp. It was so beautiful, so shiny and delicately crafted unlike any other kitchen knife you possessed. Though it seemed extremely similar to those hidden away in the drawers within the counters, this one just seemed even more entrancing than the others; this one was special in its own way. Others may say that it’s just a normal kitchen knife, but it wasn’t. They also say that you were crazy, but

Once again, Loki was in the floating fortress so the Avengers could go off to fight Doctor Doom’s inventions. He was considering if he should change Director Fury’s eye patch with a pink one in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month (as Darcy Lewis had informed him at the beginning of October). Then again, he had changed it to a Jolly Rodgers eye patch in honor of Talk Like A Pirate Day, so it might have been repetitive. Maybe if I change the soldier’s uniform to pink and purple…

BushidoBushido11 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
The idea of bushido, the Way of the Warrior, is not easily encompassed in any document. It involves the concepts of honor, face, duty, personal courage, and self-esteem; but there is so much more. Whole tomes have been written that describe it, yet very few books or essays have captured its essence competently. As a result I will provide you with some basic guidelines to follow that will aid you in your becoming a samurai. You must also realize that those who are members of the lesser or greater houses also fall under the umbrella of bushido. A samurai need not be just a warrior: "samurai" is a catch-all term for a noble.
Honor in bushido is vastly different from traditional Western concepts of honor and nobility. The most striking contrast is its lack of morality. Bushido is not about being a good or moral person. It is about being an honorable person. The samurai sees no difference between life and death; death holds no fears for him. As a result, a

Amanda woke up as the bus plunged down the steep cliff.
Around her small things flew, floating in the falling vehicle.
Time began to slow down. With it, everything around her blurred; all
ambient sounds became a slow stream of incoherent waves.
Today, of all days? Why did it have to be today? she thought.
Some moments later, time came to a full stop. Silence and blurriness reigned.
The bus driver was nowhere to be seen, and so were the other passengers.
Except one: a teenager seated in the very back row. He wore a hood so
she couldn't see his face. In his hand he held a small metallic thing
that shone like a small sun.
"It works!" she heard him say. His voice sounded very familiar.

Loki was beaming with happiness at her mother's side while they roamed the streets of Asgard. Soon they arrived at the foot of Bifrost, the legendary rainbow bridge.

1. Be gruff.
2. Be proud of your size. Never wear high heels unless you need to peak over a wall out of strategic (or voyeuristic) reasons.
3. Eat. A lot. Never refuse an invitation to dinner.
4. Spill as much of your ale as possible while drinking.
5. Avoid silly songs.
6. Look into the distance, if convenient. If inconvenient look anyways.
7. Unless it would kill you. Obviously.
8. Wear dead animals´ skins and furs. Eat the rest. A dwarf does not join PETA. Nor does he become vegetarian. Or even vegan (for he´s not an elf).
