For from misery she was born
Brought up into poverty
And to poverty she is sworn
A life of labor is her fate
And nothing in return
No matter how long she decides to wait
Not a penny she will earn
And every lover that she'll ever know
Will never truly love her
And every heartbreak she'll have to undergo.
Will have been something she tried to deter.
For she was born, cursed to misery
For from misery she was born
And everyday will pass by bitterly
And she'll be left forlorn.

From atop his broken throne, a single lonely pony sat hunched over as he scanned the ramshackle ruins of the room that represented the seat of power in all of Equestria – or what was left of it. This pony was known by his many 'adoring' subjects as King Solace, the last in the line of Alicorns who could proudly trace their lineage back to the Royal Sisters Celestia and Luna. What had become of them was anyone's guess, and only begrudgingly did he decide to forcibly take their throne in their absence in order to save a nation.
That was long ago, and more than 1000 years had passed since that time.
He shook his head slowly; his Milky Way mane and beard cascading and flowing gently down his face. His arctic night coat complimented his shimmering mane with muted brilliance; a physical reminder to some that he did have something in common with the Royal Sisters of legend. But that's all that they were now: legends.

Why can't u believe it? Please, take my key.
U r not perfect, but I've never asked u to be.
I never will. I am not neither. Don't u see?
To the hell with all the desired perfection!
Love is so much more than an emotion.
It is unpolluted being stripped of every condition.
Let's try to give it the best possible rendition.
Trust and empathy walk day by day
to meet the pure love on their way.
Performing on life stage in their unique ballet,
they bring forth the feelings they portray.

the legs are shaking, almost jelly-like.
The mind working hard on life hurdles
pushes the brain to go on strike.
Both eyes, tired, cannot see for seductive light
that the sidewalk turns round and round.
Sense of direction is off, not quite right.
The being is lost, convulsing on the ground.
The mastership of vicious circle is superior;
no human soul can fight it without aid.
No one is such a gigantean solitary warrior.
Therefore, ask for help, and do not be afraid!

For the first time in half an hour, his brothers were silent. Or, as silent as Leo could possibly hope for.
After seventeen years the eldest turtle still had absolutely no idea how his Sensei managed to discipline not one, but four pupils, into complete and utter stillness during their daily meditation session. But now that the evening session had been so ceremoniously handed down to him, Leonardo found his respect mounting tenfold for the patience his father had exercised for far too long.
Even now, Leo still could not allow himself to fully slip into his own deep, meditative state. He could hear the faint flickering of the candle flame, set directly in the middle of the circle he and his brothers formed. Yet the sound, usually so soothing and soft, was distant.
Instead, Leo listened as Michelangelo continued to shift where he sat, directly to his left. The youngest turtle had a habit of humming when he tried to meditate, and he drummed his fingers against his knees before abruptly st

“Come on Mikey, show me what ya’ got,” Raph urged, his grin wide.
If possible, Mikey’s nunchaku began to spin faster. He was watching his brother through wary eyes, although his smile was impossibly bright.
“I’m in top form today Raph,” Mikey taunted. “You’ll never take me down.”
“Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s what Leo and Don thought too,” Raph told him with a loud guffaw.
Off to one side of the dojo, Don leaned towards Leo and said, “He’s feeling cocky this morning.”
Leo watched his brothers circle each other, his brow furrowed in concentration as he examined their movements. Without looking away from them, he said, “He’s still jacked up from the battle we had with the Foot last night. Mikey had better be careful, he isn’t going to be able to goad Raph into doing something rash today.”
Almost as if he was illustrating Leo
ApotheosisDavid Sarif saw himself as a practical man. He held stock in science, what could be seen and proven, what could be calculated and understood by logic. But even he had to admit there was something magical happening before him.Apotheosis2 years ago in Drama More Like This
He was standing in the darkened observation suite of the surgical wing in Sarif Industries, the company he had built from the ground up. It had been well over thirty-six hours since they had suffered an attack from some unknown black ops group, led by three heavily augmented soldiers. In their wake they had left several dead; only a few were fortunate enough to be alive and wounded, and five of Sarif's top scientists were missing without a trace.
And now Sarif's head of security, Adam Jensen, lay in the operating room as the CEO watched. Two doctors and a nurse, the second of three teams working in shifts, hovered over the ex-cop, feverishly working with a multi-armed medbot. Working, not to save Adam's life-that part was already secured four hours ago-but to turn

I know I’m supposed to meet you at our usual place. You know that little café we found one day while taking a walk? I’ll be late today and I’m sorry in advance because you know me; I’m never late and I hate people who are. It just makes me realize that you’re always late when we meet somewhere even though you know how much I hate it. You just walk in there without a care in the world, making sure you’ve been desired enough and you can probably see by the hard set of my jaw how annoyed I am but it doesn’t bother you in the slightest. Seriously, there are days where I wonder why I still put up with you but I do.
This time the tables are turned and I’m the one who won’t show up in time and I’ll even use a white lie to cover my lateness, which is unusual for me. I’ll pretend I had stuff to finish at work even though it’s not the case. Everything’s done and my des

Even if you don't believe me.
My heads pounding.
Pounding with thoughts of you.
My hearts earning.
Earning just to feel yours beat next to mine.
My eyes scan rooms and hallways.
Searching for your face.
Hoping your still here.
But your not.
You left me here with no one.
We both know you won't be coming back.
I'm just sorry I couldn't say goodbye.
That I didn't tell you I love you.
I regret it...

Donnie could only watch in horror as his body tensed, shaking with pain. A pain that he was now beginning to feel. His breaths were growing shallower by the second, and his eyelids were fluttering uncontrollably, as if he was having a nightmare.
“It’s okay Donnie,” Leo repeated. He didn’t want his little brother to suffer anymore. It just wasn’t right.
Raph touched Leo’s shoulder, and they switched places, this Raph holding Donnie’s hand. “Hey, Donnie-boy,” Donnie’s body seemed relax at his brother’s voice, and for a moment the pain had left him. “You know I’m not so good with words. Heck, I’ve never been. But Donnie, you gotta listen to Leo,” Raph laughed weakly. “You hear me saying that? Me, of all people. But you gotta listen to Leo. You gotta let go little brother.”
“No more...” Mikey cried quietly. “No more...don’t hurt anymore Donnie...

“Raph I'm fine, really just a little insomnia it'll even it's self out” Don sighed and looked up at his brother almost pleadingly. He didn't want to have this conversation especially with Raphael who would literally throw him over his shoulder and cart him to bed if he thought it necessary.
For some reason the past couple of weeks his nightmares about the alternate reality he had been thrown into a couple of years ago had tripled and increased in intensity. They had gotten to the point he was almost terrified to go to sleep. Every time he closed his eyes lately he relived the final b

It wasn't often that Mikey had the whole lair to himself. Splinter was at April's, Raph was at Casey's and Donnie had dragged Leo to the dump. It was a rare opportunity for some solo fun and he wasn't going to squander it.
Sure, all of his brothers were also lovers and there was infinite possibility for sexual activities but.... sometime you just needed to be by yourself. It was hard to do because whenever one of them got aroused the others could smell it. Therefore, you wouldn't get a chance to do it alone.
But right now would be just for him.
Mikey hummed happily as he jumped over the back of the sofa having grabbed something from Raph's room. A porn DVD.
Sure, Mikey wasn't supposed to go in there but he'd replace it before his brother got back. It's not like Raph got the chance to watch them anymore. Donnie and Leo wouldn't let him watch while they're doing and Raph never offered it to Mikey.
Mikey slipped back into his room and locked the door. Then unlocked it and locked it again

How could he have done such a thing? How could he have driven him away?
How could he have allowed something like this to happen? How could he let his family fall apart?
He had to steady his mind- he had to...to find the space between his thoughts. He had to become tranquil to find an answer to the problem.
But it wasn’t a problem. It wasn’t even an it, it was a he. His own son, the child that he had raised since he had first gathered him into arms. How could he pull himself away from such emotion? How could he choose to forget what happened? But he had to...he had to for the sake of the others. He was their father, he had to remain strong.
Tears dripped down his face, soaking his fur. As they snaked down, they splashed the rug he kneeled upon. He held in the sob that wanted to explode, for even thou
TMNT- Who Needs Michelangelo? FANFICThough it was a chilly December day outside, the sewers of New York City were nice and warm. Quite silently, Master Splinter sat in the middle of the dojo with his beady, rat eyes shut tight as he waited for his students, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to attack. This exercise was to hone their covertness skills, for stealth is the key factor in becoming a successful ninja. So far so good: the wise rodent felt nary a trace of his pupils. More than he knew, however, they were practically under his tail.TMNT- Who Needs Michelangelo? FANFIC10 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
Without so much as a whisper, the turtles had compromised a sure-fire plan to keep their sensei completely oblivious as they approached him. As Leonardo, the strong, fearless leader, directed his team of brothers, Raphael, also known as Mr. Hothead, and Donatello, commonly referred to as Mr. Fixit, nodded earnestly in comprehension. However, just as the plan was about to be executed, the youngest and inanest brother, M

Tonight Was Steak Night
Tonight was steak night. They didn't get to have such nice cuts of prime beef very often, and Mikey had spent some time broiling every piece to mouth-watering perfection.
It got everyone to the table on time for once, and they were all behaving as though they were civilized, such a rare and enjoyable thing for their sensei.
Until Raph got up to go get himself another beer. That's when Klunk swooped onto the table, grabbed his steak, and disappeared.
Raph saw the cat take his food and he let out a blood curdling roar. His sai was in his hand faster than anyone could think, and he launched it, also without thought.
Thank goodness Mikey was so quick. He saw the danger his cat was in and grabbed Raph's arm. He couldn't stop the sai, but he did knock it off target.
That's when Raph knocked him down with a well-aimed uppercut.

Tonight's the night.
I'm not sure why, but I've decided to make this little audio journal before I go.
I feel the need to talk this through, even if it's just to myself.
Well, the old me.
After tonight I will be a different person.
I suppose I should start at the beginning.
I was a student at a prestigious university in gotham, studying for a degree in human psychology.
I was enjoying my school life, but something felt wrong.
It was a like a whisper in the back of my head, something was just irritating me.
My studies in human psychology started making me very cynical when I considered the state of the modern world.
In one class we were debating criminal illness, and someone brought up the topic of capital punishment.
We all talked but I felt I was the only one who really thought it could be a just decision in some cases.
The simple fact is, the world would be better off without some people.
The Scarecrow, the Riddler, Two-face, Poison Ivy and of course The Joker.
