"Holding back what?" she asked innocently, not catching what he could have possibly meant.
"Your innocence almost kills me."
Then her eyes widened in understanding. "Quit flirting with me! You don't even know who I am!"
"Hey, I know your name and you know mine. It must be a sign that we're supposed to get to know each other."
Karina just brushed it off; she'd grown used to statements like this comming from him by now. It was almost expected of him.
That simple fact, though she was used to it, was a contributing factor as to why she would always make the long trek back to the hideout at night instead of simply falling asleep where she sat. She knew Veon wouldn't have minded, but that was just it.

Malik nodded, quickening his pace.
"Thanks for your help, brother. What's the situation out there?"
"It is an hour past dawn already, Alta´r," the Dai answered, hastening to the Master's desk. "Everything is arranged properly – Rafik just brought together the villagers, with all the men we have left. They are all waiting outside the Fortress."
He nodded absently, still sorting through the brownish parchment under his fingers. Suddenly, not for the first time that morning, his attention was captured by the thin leather cover of a small book.
It was Al Mualim's diary. That small book, the key to many truths of the Brotherhood, had been found in his clothes before the burial. Secrets, information and names had been recorded through the decades, for the new Masters to read, in the old man's minute handwriting.
Alta´r let out a frustrated sigh.

Homosexuality in TransformersSlash, Morality, and the Cybertronian WayHomosexuality in Transformers4 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
An essay by Traci Johnson (Loco Exclaimer)
This is an essay on homosexuality, especially that portrayed in relationships between the fictional characters in the fandom Transformers. The first half deals exclusively with homosexuality as an issue in itself with little to no mention of any fandom, and details my point of view on this issue. The second half details said relationships as portrayed between any two given characters from Transformers. I hope you enjoy.
Part One: Homosexuality, Morality, and Religion
I honestly find it revolting that religion is even an issue when it comes to homosexuality. It's an issue of discrimination against human beings, and ought to be treated as such. Women were seen as second-class in Biblical times; does that make them lesser beings? No.
Still, this section will deal with the "morals and ethics" of being gay.

HS: Troll Anatomy HeadcanonFirst things first: SEXHS: Troll Anatomy Headcanon2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
I have this odd headcanon about troll reproduction anatomy.
So bear with me.
All trolls are hermaphrodites. But there are varied degrees of the organs between males and females.
Females have more defined nooks and smaller bulges. The bulge actually is almost never seen, located under a flap of skin nearest to the nook. This is only needed when a quadrant is filled with another female. Often when such relationships work, the two will choose who is to hold the genetic material if ever a drone were to come.
Drones will allow a period of 24 hours for each quadrant bucket to be filled. Genetic material is often held by one member of the relationship.
Males obviously have more defined bulges and lesser nooks, but still can hold genetic material if needed. It's often a touchy subject.
Breasts in females are sort of a vestigial organ. Perhaps their society was once mammalian, but overcame this through a strange evolutionary track. Because most are carnivorous from birth

Oh what was he kidding? He was going to a new school- an actual school!- for the first time since…well…ever! Living on an island off the coast of Australia really wasn’t the best situation to be in to make friends and apart of normal society. Now though, things would work out well- he’d make new friends, take actual classes, all that jazz. Sure, he’d miss the assorted beasts on the island, and nana, but he’d be back during the holidays to see them.
For now though, he just namely had to worry about getting out of his dorm on time. He readjusted his shirt, looking himself over in the mirror once more.

I'll be writing it on the wall:
The hope you never gave me,
Is the hope that stands me tall!
And I will walk through this world,
Don't ask me if it's cold.
There is warmth for you to find here;
My hand's for you to hold.
So take it and I promise,
This night won't be your last.

pay attention to what she desires.
Tell her that you love her lips,
and touch her with gentle fingertips.
Kiss her passionately like lovers do,
like she’s the best thing that’s happened to you.
Listen to all the stories she tells,
tell her you care that she’s been through hell.
Comfort her and hold her hand,
feel her pain like you understand.
When she cries her hearts torn in half,
make her smile and make her laugh.
Hold her in a strong embrace,
wipe the teardrops from her face.
When she tells you that she dreams of you,
tell her you dream about her too.
And if she looks at you with pleading eyes,
whisper to her the most incredible lies.

after you have left it.
We all saw the topic "Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan" and we all thought,
"What did he do this time?"
We continue to read the words,
"It is with great sadness and heavy hearts"
And our hearts also sink.
This could not be possible.
Of the five he seemed the most
First we think it could be a joke.
That the guys are messing with us, teasing us before the release of their new material.
Second, we are stunned, as are our bodies;
they quiver and our mouths hang open.
Overcome by the realization that this is no jest.
He is gone from this Earth.
Thirdly, we become either angry or
swollen with tears.
Our hearts plummet to our stomach, we hit things, we cry out, we vomit, we scream
Of the fourth, we become numb.
It's what creeps up our failing arms, our kicking legs
It's the pain in our throats from our tormented screams
It's the tears simply falling out and our useless hands that have no intention of wiping them

I think about his smile, his beautiful lips,

I could stare at those eyes for the rest of my days,

Never checking my ticket to see that I’ve lost,
but possible rewards are so worth the cost.

bad things will happen but you have to live life.
So I hold my breath and bite my lip,

Your smile lifts our souls.

And you can’t say my name;
You dance to invisible music,
Everyone says we’re the same.
You have curly blonde hair,
And big brown eyes;
A smiling flower of a face,
And chubby baby thighs.
You will grow to be big,
And you will change;
You’ll learn the world’s scary,
As much as it is strange.
If I could give you one tip,
And know that you’d follow it,
It’d be: be who you are,
Live like there’s no tomorrow.
Don’t strive for beauty,
Don’t live for lies;
Find beauty in living and
Keep putting beauty into
Other people’s lives.

An innocent smile, a heart of gold.
So begins the story, each time it is told.
The ending leaving you, bitter and cold.
Your “soulmate” leads you into her bed.
That’s how she traps you, with lovely legs spread.
Desire and lust dominate your head.
Spellbound you agree to whatever is said.
Her manipulations are a mastered art.
As her trusting victim, you play the part.
She promises to love you with all her heart.
And with sick satisfaction she tears you apart.
From this trance you eventually awake.
That’s when you discover, trust is a mistake.
Your wonderful woman was a scheming snake.
Blinding you with her poison and taking all she could take.
You’re left alone, bitten and broke.
All you had, all you believed, all up in smoke.
Secretly wishing, you had never woke.
She made you love her, and her love was a joke.
