In tribute to Chun LiIn any country she will fightIn tribute to Chun Li2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
For reasons always right
In her traditional dress of blue
She will stand by what is true
Any evil that arises can easily be fixed
By one graceful barrage of kicks
Adorable and charming but never squeamish
She will not start a fight but be its finish
This is a force no criminal can beat
Only Chun Li can be so strong and sweet

It wasn't anything like I imagined it would be. I can't remember when they started talking about it, but I remember switching on the television one morning a few weeks ago and the news was full of it, and I realised that they had been for a while. World leaders were meeting to discuss potential solutions to the problem. In talk shows experts were interviewed, religious leaders consulted.
But life carried on. I still went to work, early on at least. I still got stuck in the traffic around Carnon Downs. Work wasn't flooded with a mass influx of panicked people. I don't think Gareth even bothered to pull down the emergency protocols manual from high on its shelf.
Gradually the workload decreased. People stopped going to the doctor, fewer people were admitted. Nobody wanted blood tests any more.
Eventually I stopped going to work. There was no point. I called in every day, just in case.
I ended up watching people go to work in the morning, as they continue

to behold for friends, you spoil them that much
each and every picture and word it's creator's mark
with a hand of their own, their personal touch
Darkness and depression their hearts hold
and the stories they wrote for all to see
loosing the feel for the pictures told
for their heroes and idols match they'd never be.
Chin up, proud artists, for you as well
need not match your idols and heroes but see
you have stories to picture and pictures to tell
to be a hero to others, the idol you think others to be.
Grab your pencil and tell us your paint
grab your pen and sketch us the story
for eventhough the light of your glory in your eyes is feint
to many you are that idol, and hold your own glory.
Your art is your own, your stories your fiction
see now that they come from your heart
you need not weep when your workflow has friction
for when you are done you have again created art.

No destination is too dangerous when she gives chase
Strong, swift, determined, well-armed, and relentless
All the galaxy's criminals are practically defenseless
Trained by the Chozo to be athletic and fast on her feet
In her signature space armor, there is none she cannot defeat
To deliver justice is her reason to fight
Every space pirate in the universe fears her might
Not even dreaded Ridley can hope to endure
Her skills and arsenal will end him for sure
From planets dangerous and barren
No one can stop the bounty hunter Samus Aran

I'm queer, and that's all you need to know.
That's usually what I tell people when they ask, "are you a lesbian?" or "are you gay?" In truth, I'm bisexual, but I don't like admitting that to people.
Sounds pretty dumb, right? But there are certain stereotypes that go with bisexuality, as with any other identity. The stereotype that I've encountered with bisexuality, though (especially concerning bisexual girls), is particularly damaging; it's that a bi person is really not much more than a straight person who fiddles around with his or her friends of the same sex when he or she can, with absolutely no emotional involvement. A lot of people I know automatically associate "bisexual" with "teen: smoker, promiscuous, eye-makeup, pouty expression, disrespectful. Just a phase."
That is what makes me reluctant to identify as being bi. I've heard bisexuals get scorned from both ends of the sexuality spectrum: many straight people think we're

But it's not the sun I see now
Keep telling me the truth
But I miss it somehow
Never wanted to be this close
To losing this much heart
But you're just that good
Always knew you could
Had I watched,had I prayed
I'd have learned how to say it too...
I think I'm over you.

Butterflies of RedButterflies of Red1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If I were to jump, I wonder if I would learn how to fly,
grow a pair of wings and be free.
Wonder away in this black sky,
all the way until I reach the blood that makes this sea.
Should I get too close I shall be stained in red,
thinking of whom this vivid color belonged to.
But then I recollect that it is all from me, this color that I shed.
Above the skin that never quite grew,
butterflies rest, each with it's own sense.
Away they'd go, leaving behind a disorienting view,
and the intentions from which they came at high expense.
If I were to jump, I wonder would freedom ever come?
If I were to jump, with me, would you be set free?
If we were to jump, only thing that'd be is a morbid hum.

The nice cool air settled with a drizzle that patted the backs of all who paddled down the street, almost as if ushering them onwards towards their destination. So far, Channel 62 was keeping their prediction on "Weather on a need to know basis". Although the rain wasn't "Pouring down in buckets," per say more like falling through a tightly weaved strainer suspended above the sky.

Well, these socks were absolutely ruined.

The room suddenly felt cold. Zim's body went stiff and he felt a pained, sinking feeling in his chest as he was abruptly cut off from his leaders. He had heard these words before, from a varying range of other Irkens as time had passed and even from The Almighty Tallest themselves on a few occasions. But he never believed a word of it. He thought back to his existence evaluation. The Tallest had pushed his date up a couple of decades. He didn't want to come to the realization that they did that with malicious intent then. His loyalty to his leaders burned strong. The only reason he even lived through his evaluation is because his PAK was too much for the Control Brains to handle. Thinking back, he didn't realize to the full extent what was happening to him or the Brains. Just that the Brains declared him the greatest Invader ever. He hadn't thought then that it was because of his faulty PAK overwhelming them. Zim was unsure of why th

I envision her as a lightning bruiser who is the fifth highest attack, speed, and stamina in a Rival schools roster that adds Sakura, Karin, R. Mika, Maki, Ibuki, Sean, Dan and Makoto. What that means against Slam Masters and World Warriors and street gangs is unclear. Due to her extensive power, she has no range outside of hurling herself at varying speeds (most of them fast). So reachers/teleport/fireball spammers will be the bane of her in combat.

You knew that was probably the most useless thing you could say given the situation. Of course it wasn't living tissue; you were in freaking space. Y'know, a vacuum. Where all living things would die if they were left without protection. And by protection, you meant spacesuits. But, given who your captain was, you honestly couldn't be bothered to be any more helpful. You sighed, looking away from the scope and towards the blond man lounging in the captain's chair, surrounded by McDonalds bags. How he managed to get McDonalds this far into unexplored space, you did not know.

When ______ woke up the first thing she saw were the warm covers of the king's bed. She still was ill, so it took a few time for understanding she was in the personal king's bedroom, in his bed to be exact. When she finally managed to sit she saw Arthur and Francis talking softly in a corner of the room. It seemed like they were quarrelling. At a point they stopped and Francis came near her, caressing her cheek. My little lovey is finally awake! he said with his best smile. The king stood up, ready to being a new squabble; it seemed like the two boys didn't get along well. ______ noticed that they had almost the same eight, but no one seemed too short or too tall, so she thought they had quite the same age. It was actually a hasty conclusion, because she was so hungry she couldn't think a lot.

Zim's breathing was heavy and his irken heart was beating loudly in his head. That Dib and his STOOpid para-whatever it was. It was getting increasingly hard, since Dib started becoming famous and getting funding from various TV channels and restaurants, to get away from the human with out some kind of big injury and this time was no exception.
He looked at the Dib-human, a small sense of victory creeping through him at the large scratches on his face, left by Zim's claws before it was quickly drowned out literally when it started to rain.
Dib grinned cheekily at Zim. A large stun-gun was re-charging in his hand. He pulled in closer to the Irken. "It hurts, doesnt it, Zim? The rain? Eating at your flesh like acid splashed in your eyes..." He continued walking closer to Zim, confident in his victory this time, and raising the gun to point at him. "One shot from this and you'll be immobile for at least thirty minutes thanks to those beautiful flesh wounds caused by the rain."
