We live in a world untouched by others. Magic veils protect our fragile, unseen, world from those who wish to seek it. We call ourselves the gatewayway world. We are the anchor; release it, and the sea is yours.
If our world were to be discovered, many others would suffer. Our people work hard to ensure our safety and that of neighboring worlds. Strict rules have been applied and we follow them religiously. The Council oversees all matters. Political involvement is extremely important to us. We take great pride in it. It is this pride which may have blinded us. We thought our world to be unbreachable.

How to Design complex characters using core beliefHow to Design complex characters using core belief9 years ago in Editorial More Like This
A character is basically formed by three things: Personality, Beliefs, History
After designing the character's story and personality, what will help them stay in character is designing the layers of their core beliefs.
The key thing is, these core beliefs are never, ever spoken by the character themselves. They just behave in this belief like it's normal and not even think it's there.
Of course you can still choose to have them say it, they will just be a simpler open book type character. Or say it partially hiding its true statement, you can also use a character's core belief statement to make it a story statement if you see fit.
A core belief system is the thing that will make the character see the world around them differently from one another; thus making their judgement and decisions differently as well.
Everyone (real people) operates this way. Core belief can be formed as early as babies. So watch out of the kids.
After the first layer of core belief is formed, the

Rin Okumura was not a happy half-demon.
Don’t get him wrong, though. He was usually a bright and cheerful boy, and rarely one would find him anything other than positive. In fact, he had often been told he had one of the brightest smiles in the entirety of True Cross Academy.
However, today was an abnormality.
He was currently sulking in the corner of the camp he and his fellow exorcists-in-training had only moments ago set-up, deep blue eyes set upon his group of ‘friends’ in a deep scowl. His brother had assigned the cram school’s students to journey to the forest nearby the school, with the task of defeating a set number of demons as a surprise quiz.
Now, it wasn’t that the boy disliked the prospect of getting out of the classroom. In fact, he couldn’t be more relieved that Yukio had finally decided to assign them field work. No, the reason he was angrily swishing his tail behind him as he glared down his classmates was much simpler than that. At

Dance of SinThe music begins; a haunting melodyDance of Sin8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
which pierces the heart, mind and soul
casting away all thoughts of innocence,
robbing me of my virtue,
and leaving me in the throes of sinners glory.
i dance, i twirl, i lavish the delights
caught in the passion of the darkest ardor
i revel in the throughs of the deepest love,
my heart becomes malevolent,
my eyes lose their warmth and shine,
glazing over with a cold brittle hate
i become a deviant.
the dance carries on, couples waltz and whirl
whilst my partner and i are caught in each others eyes,
we notice no others, only the darkest secrets
each other hides.
colours blend as we lose ourselves in the
glorious patterns of our unearthly
dance of sins.
The room spins gaily as the music begins to ebb
yet exhausted we continue on,
the final chords to the everlasting dance of sinners
drew to a maleficent close, the couples parted ways,
you and i remained close,
caught in the heights or our dark ardor,
and the innocent watched in envy

Prejudice.Dear Writer,Prejudice.2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I found your article highly offensive, and highly prejudiced against things as simple and harmless as make-up and hair dye, which have been around as long as the Egyptians. I would ask you to take down this article immediately, but I don't suppose that your hubris would let you. So a few girls enjoy having wild hair. That doesn't mean we're moving towards a hunger games-like world! The very nature of the article speaks of the arrogance of the writer, and I do suppose that your work is 100% the true you, correct? Why do you, in the very same sentence as you tell girls to be happy with their self image, say something as degrading as you did about the way a girl dyes her hair? Why do you assume that you are so much better than Mrs Jane Doe? Arrogant. I do hope you awaken to your ignorance, your arrogance, and the mistakes made in this article sometime soon. You truly should go and read some Edgar Allen Poe, Roald Dahl, some kind of true classical writing. With true class. You

This story begins, as most magical stories do, with Once Upon a Time....
There was a tiny baby girl born from the clouds. She was blessed by the queen of the cloud fairies, Queen Aolani, to be a princess. Every baby born of the clouds had a special calling. There were some called to be raised on planets in distant Solar Systems simply to teach the people there gentleness and kindness where worlds had given way to brutality. Others were born to build new clouds, and even though each were unique and had different jobs, the cloud children were all made of pure softness, and the essence of the cloud they were born from. And once every Thousand years The Queen of the fairies would find the brightest cloud and touch it with her fairy magic, instilling into the newborn leadership, and out of it would come a princess born to one day be the new Queen of the Clouds.
Every thousand years they worked in harmony.
Every thousand years nothing really changed.

All he had to do was to find a place to rest, a safe shelter, perhaps a crevice in some cliff....... or a den.....or a....

If I blinkA blink ago I was sitting on the playgroundIf I blink3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
My sunny red hair pulled into two little pigtails
With the ribbons I had begged my mother to tie into my hair
Because I didn't know how to tie a bow yet
A blink ago I was hiding behind my mother's leg
My first time experiencing something new
A brand new world, a school of new people
But it was then, when I peeked around her knee
When my big brown eyes caught sight of my first love
A blink ago I was on the playground again
When my first love told me that he liked me
I ran away screaming "Gross!"
Because I still believed boys had cooties
A blink ago
he held my hand for the first time
And a blink later
he kissed me cheek
A blink ago I was in a hallway
Trying not to be trampled by the giants around me
Suddenly aware I was nothing but a speck
Aware that everyone wasn't each other's best friend
A blink ago I walked the hall with my first boyfriend
Followed by the curses of the witches and dragons behind us

All Sam knew was that it had to be huge in order for Dean to change his mind. He didn’t have a clue what that would be. He didn’t know where to start.
Sam knew that Dean had been acting differently the last few weeks, but he had pushed it out of his mind because he thought it had to do with angels being casted out of Heaven and Crowley now in their custody which was how he had thought of it. Now that he was thinking about it again, maybe he should revisit those ideas again.

“Are you sure about this?” Sam asked.
“No,” Dean said. “I’m not sure, but he does need to learn to be human the old fashion way.” Dean sighed. “He said that he has faith that he
