Meyer's Writing SucksFor reasons beyond me, there are some people who think that the Twilight series are well written books. I don't think that there's anything wrong with enjoying badly written books, just as long as you realise that they are badly written books. Fans are using the excuse that it was her first book, and it was written just for fun or for herself. Yes, most books are, but is that an excuse to publish a book written entirely in purple prose with repetition, poor grammar, and thesaurus abuse? These books have clearly had little to no editing. Theyre like a very early first draft that I know Id be ashamed to let anyone see. Look at the way that Meyer writes. It's BORING. Meyer uses simple, boring statements.

Other Names: 'Devivs, Alien Kitties, QDV
The Qwuedeviv learn new languages pretty fast. Their own language is more dependent on tone than the spoken word, thus when learning other languages, sometimes they will toss together utter nonsense as long as their tone is conveying how they feel about something.
Overview: Qwuedeviv are an androgynous race of aliens who share many feline and shark-like qualities. They tend to adapt their appearance based on their environment.
Detailed View: Qwuedeviv are morphing creatures in their younger stages. Up until adolescence, their appearance largely depends on their environment. This includes things ranging from the shape of their limbs and appendages, height, outer skin layer density and much more.
For example, those who live in more humid regions tend to have very minimal fur if any and to

"Are you hurt?" Arthur asked, looking fixedly out the window.

"Uuuuuuuuuuuh huh. You want to be in my pocket?!" He looked down at the sweatshirt pocket in question. "You'll suffocate or something!"
"As long as you don't cover it or put pressure on it I'll be fine." Arthur replied, shrugging. "It's better than being inside all day, stuck with nothing to do."
Alfred sighed. "Fine, but you'll be on my shoulder; I don't wanna kill you in my pocket." He offered his hand to him.
"You wouldn't kill me. Besides, if was on your shoulder the whole time, someone will see me." Arthur said, but walked onto it and settled in the center.
Alfred raised him to his shoulder. "No one will see you."
Arthur stepped onto it and gripped his sweatshirt collar for support. "And how do you know that?"

I know that's what you're thinking right now.
You're not totally wrong, but not totally right either.
This story happened in 2004, when the Fire Red and Leaf Green versions came out. As soon as school was over for the day, I headed out to the local GameStop before going back home, trying to make up my mind about which version I should buy.
I peered over the counter at the GBA games, there were so many copies of the new generation... After a few minutes, I chose Pokemon Leaf Green. I paid and decided to stay a bit longer to have a look at the recent games.
I noticed a shiny blue box labelled "Pokemon Ice Blue Version" in a pile of older or less popular games below the display shelf.
"What's that game?" I asked the shop's employee.
"That?" He asked, pointing at it to confirm.
"Oh, we got it by mistake." He answered in an uninterested tone.
"What do you mean?"

Norman doesn't actually belong to his family, the Babcocks. Actually, he was adopted when he was 7 years old or maybe younger. The reason he was adopted is because his parents were paranormal investigators, and they were killed during a paranormal happening in thier own home. Norman was at the house while they were killed, and began seeing ghosts ever since. Not only could he see them, he could fully comunicate with them as well. The parent's friend and Norman's godmother, Laura, saw the couple dead on the floor a few minutes after she heard a really loud noise from next door, and saw Norman crying in the corner of the room they were killed in. She willingly took Norman into her family, but no one was aware of Norman's sudden sixth sence other than himself. And, the first family home schooled Norman, so that probably why the kids at school don't understand him e

Pebblepaw turned to the voice of the deputy. "Not lately," he meowed. "Lots of cats have been getting wounded lately; Firefoot has been keeping me busy."
"It's because of that badger," Goldenstripe growled and bore his teeth. "It comes and goes as it pleases and we can't seem to chase it away."

It was a word he was more then familiar with. Want of attention, knowledge, acclamation, it drove his every choice and action, he was well aware of the fact. He didn't consider it a weakness, far from it. It was encouragement and excuse to play out his skills. Whether with word or invention, by achievement, or cheating, it didn't matter.
Edward Nygma got what he wanted.
The world was full of challenges to him and he was determined to take the prize one way or another. Still there was one trophy that alluded him, so far at least.

Jonathan Crane hadn't cared for much over his lifetime but he had always loved the subject of psychology. He adored everything about it, dissecting a man's mind without so much as a scalpel, poring over the volumes of bizarre behavior of hundreds upon hundreds of case studies, observing every little social choice and interaction as a road map to past horrors and future doubts. To think his career was dedicated to the most magnificent innovation in human history. He was paid to analyze it, expand its applications and teach others with the results. Oh he enjoyed the teaching, never had there been a time he was not only allowed but encourage to talk about his favorite subject in as much detail as he could manage.
It was the students he hated.
By god, he hated them. He hated the the ones who coasted by in the back rows, barely doing enough work to keep their athletic scholarships. He hated the ones up front who pandered to him,

What you are reading now are the collected and recorded surviving documents of the R-VEX experiments.
They called it Rage Virus. It was the next generation in biological weaponry, designed and tested by the late Professor Nabe Gewell at the Mercy Medical and Biological Weaponry Institute Complex.
Deployable in gas or liquid form, it would attack the nervous system, rendering the target immobile, before shifting to the glands of the human body and causing huge overdoses in the creation of adrenaline and testosterone. This would drive the victim nigh enough insane, causing them to attack anything they could find, before eventually destroying themselves.
Or, at least, that was the idea.
These are the notes of three scientists working on R-VEX:

The plan took almost a week to put together, casual seeming chatter over a chessboard. The guards had not picked up on the double meanings whispered under breath, and now they paid for it.
