When I would think of their hands roaming my body, their words of hate and cruelty piercing my soul and their fist cracking my bones, I’d love it if I could just break down, tremble with tears and erupted into sobs.
Exactly like a …like a girl.
Don’t get me wrong ladies; you’re not all like this. I’ve seen you too when you’re corned, when you want only what you deserve…Justice. So you blame me for what another man did to you , besides, what one man does amplifies what we all do, does it not?
According to your standards it does.
So if I cry and scream, will you think differently of me? Will you think for just a second, that I’m human too? Will you finally believe me when I say that I’m not the man that hit you, not the man that raped your or beat you, not the

A birthday present for Tsuki – who is a fantastic admin – off the people who were able to participate in creating this group present!
Several mages croweded around the bar area in the Fairy Tail guild, making small talk, skirting around the huge problem that everyone was worried about, but noone wanted to bring up.
Sighing, Electra spoke bluntly from her seat on top of the bar. “Aravis seems sad all the time...” Making the others pause their small talk and stare at her. Kat looked at Electra sadly, murmuring her agreement. “Yeah...”
Thorn looked at the two from beside Electra. “ No kidding...”
Kat looked at the floor sadly as she spoke again. “ Poor Aravis...”
Shane, who was moping on the floor replied. “ You noticed that as well?”
Sighing, Asami spoke up. “ She seems down all the time”
Putting her feet up ontop of shane, Electra spoke again, first directly to Shane.

I was afraid of loving you:
rejection hurts more than a tired heart
for it squeezes all emotions from your soul,
leaving you bare against reality's blank slate -
a state of invisibility and loneliness.
I called upon my friend, Time,
to help me forget you, only you...
Yet with every passing moment,
you plague my thoughts
with your humour and wit,
and I realise that I haven't forgotten -
I haven't forgotten you.
Turns out Time betrayed me,
so I gave Distance a call
to evict you from my heart
you unknowingly lived in.
Oh, Distance tried, oh yes she did,
but you just couldn't be moved,
for you were so deeply rooted
in my garden of love for you.
I told myself it wasn't love
and I tried hard not to love you
because you clearly loved another.
And I'm sorry.

“A Fairy bomb, and keep them coming”
Blaize sighed as he sat down at the bar, ordering the first of many drinks. Ever since he tried to show Aravis how he felt about her his life took a drastic turn for the worse. He was forced to watch the woman he loved laughing with his rival, to see him flinging his arm around her and calling her pet names like 'sweetheart' and worst of all... watch her act as though he hadn't told her his feelings and kissed her the night before.
He was struggling to cope when Aravis walked into the guild earlier that day, acting as though nothing had happened between the two. It was hard enough watching Clio, the girl he considered his younger sister growing up before his very eyes... first the 'date' she wanted to go on with Sol, then Thorn seemingly flirting with her... Blaize couldn't believe how fast she was growing up... and it scared him to think that soon she wouldn't nee

at the water and watched it skip three times, thinking
it will never do to grow old and content.
somewhere beneath this river
there is a castle built from stones i've thrown,
and all of the fish are kings and queens.
they've never been asked about their royal decrees.
no one has ever wished them a happy birthday.
they reign over the kingdom of life and death, and even the river
refuses to stop and mourn them when they go.
one week ago i found a moss-covered stump,
and instead of crying, i counted its rings.
if you were to cut me crosswise, i don't know
what you'd find. perhaps severed arteries
pouring out gold and poetry,
ancient cave paintings splashed across my vertebrae,
or the secret to immunity brewing
in the cauldron of my hips.
maybe you wouldn't find anything.
i cannot grow rings, after all,
and i am no queen.
today, to celebrate my birthday,
i will head down to the river with a saw

I was always the quiet one. The one who sits in the back of the classroom, never really acknowledged. You know the type, average grades but no one really knows you. Being one of these kids had its ups and downs. People avoid you completely or simply don't notice you even exist. Which is fine with me, I didn't like them anyways. While in the back you don't have much to do. The mind starts to wander... Mine wandered to a place where I could plot peoples deaths. Yea its morbid, even creepy. But no one else knows. They don't need too. After awhile I- I began to write down these... Plots, heh. I keep them in a normal little journal, navy blue if you were wondering. The innocence of it lets any observing eyes pass over it with little thought of what is inside. I'm writing more and more lately. My pages are filling up with my cramped, blocked handwriting.

The Magic Council, who were tasked with delegating guilds to different areas, were under tremendous strain and the shortage of able bodied mages resulted in many guilds becoming 'stranded' and left to fight without reinforcements.
Teenagers were taken away from their families by the Royal Guard and pushed into rigorous training, before being assigned to a single sex guild that specialized in their magic in order to avoid opposite sex relationships that could potentially put a female mage out of active duty.
The experiences of these guilds were far different to those of pre-existing guilds such as Fairy Tail. There were no pre-existing bond

This "tutorial" will focus mainly on the face, touching generally on use of clothing for a "total" appearance. I will try to cover things important for part-time and full-times as well.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND - where referring to the differences in appearance, this is obviously not going to be truth for all men. Just like the concept of beauty, the difference between male and female has no exact formula that will work for everyone's face.
ALSO : This is not focused towards Drag Queens or outrageous female makeup - this may be a starting point, but Drag is more a fantasy and though there are some general concepts - something you just need to be creative with, not limited to a set of ideas about.
1. Hair. Current culture dictates, women generally have longer hair than men. Cut of hair is extremely important - the cut needs not only to be "feminine" but to flatter your face. You can have your hair (or wig) cut t

She blushed and looked around. She was at the waiting spot they agreed on, but she was early, so he wasn’t there yet. Kat smoothed out her dress again and reached up to check if her hair was still in place. Just like it was five seconds ago when she checked it. She continued to fidget with her appearance, wondering if Yami would like it, when she heard the sound of foot steps behind her. Kat turned quickly and saw him there, dressed nicely for their date and his scarf worn as a belt.
“Hey, kiddo.” He said with a slight wave.
She smiled brightly and returned the wave. “H-hi, Yami!”
He took a moment to appraise Kat’s choice of dress. She could feel

"Please, you have to help her! The Magic Council said they'd get a bed reserved for us, didn't they?!... She's badly burned on her stomach and needs attention now, it's an emergency!"
An emergency? She thought groggily for a moment. I didn't think I was that badly hurt. She slowly attempted to open her eyes, only to discover she didn't have the strength. After a moment of trying and failing to open her eyes she gave into the exhaustion, passing out once more.
Summer sighed as she sat on the bar once more, wondering how the job to stop dark mages blowing up the council had gone for the four young mages. They had all yet to return, though due to the nature of the job that was to be expected. As she pushed herself off the bar she sighed once more. Turning to pick up the paperwork that had sat next to her she paused.

The Tardis materialized.
The Doctor stepped out and took a look around the small dusty courtyard. "Oh, so not going to happen," he muttered in disgust. He turned around. "Back inside, Rose," he said, shooing her before him.
She sidestepped. "Why? What is it? What's wrong?" She looked around the small cramped yard, tall wooden fencing blocked out any view to speak of, but it was hot, with a dry heat similar to a desert, and it smelled of animals and rotting garbage. She held her nose and looked over at the pile of moldering onions that stood at the back door of the ramshackle, clapboard building they'd apparently materialized behind. "It stinks."
"Yes, it does," he said, giving the words an ominous ring that indicated something more dire than onions.

Ichigo laid in his bed, staring out the window and up into the night sky, thinking, thinking hard. His orange brows were creased with concentration, and a scowl was set upon his face as he thought.
There was a woman, a fair looking woman, with dark purple hair that fell just past her shoulders. Her eyes were amber, a deep, beautiful amber that held such warmth that it could sooth even the coldest of hearts.
Ichigo's eyes narrowed as he tried to recall the rest, reaching into his subconscious and grasping whatever else he could of what happened.
We were in a meadow, and she was in the distance, laughing, twirling in the wind as it whistled past her and enveloped her in its cool arms. When she saw me she stopped. She stopped moving, going into complete stillness. She hardly even breathed, as if her own breath had caught in her throat.

Jinni gestate an egg and birth to the egg, which then hatches into a Jinni that grows very quickly. They stop growing when they reach the height they'll be for the rest of their lives. They are born with wings on their hips and tails but many of them have their wings clipped or torn off. Very few of them have un-clipped wings and can fly. The texture and color of the egg can help tell you what kind of Jinni is inside. A rough shell with the colors black, red or gold can be thought of as a Dominant, though it isn't a sure thing, it could also be a Female. A smooth shell with the colors pink, blue or purple can be thought to be a Submissive, though it isn't a sure thing, it could also be a Breeder.
Typical Personalities and Traits:
