Flareon turned to see Sylveon bring a paw to her mouth daintily. "Oops, excuse me," she said.
Flareon just smiled and returned to his quiet reverie. It would take more than a mere hiccup to interrupt his--
"Hic!" This time, the Intertwining Pokémon looked slightly concerned.
"Are you alright?" Flareon asked.
"Yeah, I think so," she replied. "I just feel a little strange. Hic!" A perplexed look came over Sylveon's face, and she looked down at herself. Her once flat stomach was now distinctly convex. "Daddy, I'm feeling a bit bloated."
"That's all? I think you got a carbohydrate trigger in your belly, I doubt that you got something worse than that"
Sylveon sighed and laid back on the grass

“Hello, Flareon! There’s nothing much here actually. Did I make it to the party on time?”
“Yeah, you just made it. I got here myself. Come on, let’s get going!”
Flareon waved her right paw and started walking towards the entrance to the townhouse. She knocked on the door a couple of times and waited for someone to open the door. A couple of minutes pass and no one has come out to open the door.
“This is the right place, Jolteon?”
“Yeah, said so in the invitation. Maybe they’re busy?”
“Maybe…let me try something…”
Flareon grabbed the door handle and turned it as she began to open the door. The door started to bulge but something caught her attention as he hears so

Suddenly, the Illusion Fox Pokémon noticed something surprising. First, she was shocked to discover a hose within her mouth, she then saw it connected to what appeared to be six compressed air tanks. Secondly, she could feel a strange, tight pressure in her belly building up within her, as it started to bulge like a balloon after first inflating.
Her belly started out tout and small, giving the impression that she look pregnant. Very soon, though, her belly encompassed the size of their bod

"Of course not, Hunter. That's impossible. It's so far away, honey." she tried to reason.
"And it would be really hot, wouldn't it?" he spat out bits of half-chewed cereal.
"Yes. Something so far away has to be really hot to keep us warm."
Hunter nodded. It made perfect sense, but that didn't stop him from being curious to the sun's taste.
"I bet it'll taste like soup fresh off the stove when I don't blow it cold." he tried to explain as his mother cleared the kitchen table of their breakfast.
"I don't know, baby. I never tried to eat the sun. When you get home maybe we can bake some sun cookies and you can eat those." his mother yawned. "Grandma will help."

Steve is the common name of the player character in Minecraft, a popular sandbox game with at least 3 million players. This is one miner with a thirst for adventure, able to punch through mountains with his fists, craft powerful weapons, take on entire armies of hostile mobs, and even ride a pig. However, he has a mild fear of the dark, and never ventures out at night without his diamond sword at hand.
Steve is a formidable fighter, having punched his way through entire armies of hostile mobs. However, he isn't alone in this match - he rides on the back of his faithful pig. This gives him surprising speed and agility, but can be hard to control, so he has a carrot on a stick at all times when he's not attacking. Because of the pig's slow turning speed, ledges and floating platforms can be dangerous, so Steve fights best on level ground. He'll defend his pig to the death - if he hangs from a ledge, he'll hold the pig by its saddle with the other ha

Have any of you watched an animated film by Camillo Teti called "Titanic: The Legend Goes On", which I reviewed months ago? I feel bad for you if you have. Real bad. But if you think that was bad, prepare for something worse. It's Italian, the plot is weak, the characters are unlikable, there's mice and there's a happy ending, but no, there's no rapping dog. What could there be that's so stupid in this movie? Well, wait and see, in this review of a rare movie that deserved to be rare - Orlando Corradi's The Legend of the Titanic.
Where do I start? This film is about some grandfather mouse named Top Connors living in New York who tells his grandchildren about his journey on the Titanic. I don't know when this movie takes place, and when he was young he sounded like Bob Hoskins on helium, very inappropriate for his girlish appearance, so if this takes place in the time this movie was released (1999) and the mouse was about 40-ish in human years in 1912, does that mean th

She is a million possibilities and one, a billion possible outcomes. And she is also what has not yet been when the sun sets in the evening.
Her path is not quite set in stone yet, but she is already much different than whatever she could have been. Every choice, every divergence she has taken she wears on her skin, like a regal mantle of rust and dust, for that is what truly defines her, and identity is the one thing she sorely longs for.
It is always about finding a way forward with her, a way to keep advancing in spite of all the weight she bears on her skin, of all the rust that has accumulated over the years. So, she will press forward no matter the cost, for the only true death lies in inactivity. It is all about having something to show at the end of the day, something to make it all worth it, something to justify the scars and the bruises.

The Pokemon were having fun doing their stuff, but Pikachu went into the forest for some alone time. What he didnt know was that Buneary was watching him. Buneary loves him but is always shy around him. She covers her face with her fluff whenever she is near him. Buneary watched as Pikachu decides to sleep next to an apple tree.

So, regardless of the troubles within, Erbium keeps a straight face, carefully putting up walls, one calculated brick at a time. No matter how terrifying it gets inside, or how much he is seething, none of it ever bubbles up to the surface.
It is not that Erbium does not feel. He does feel, he really does. Nevertheless, he has gotten so used to ruling his face that, sometimes, he wonders if his brain has not taken to beating in his heart's place.
He knows every crook in his walls, every nook, every cranny. And yet he does not have the faintest understanding of what happens between those walls. Sadness, rage, anger, love, it is all irrational gibberish to him. Fear he understands though, enough to realize his impenetrable fortress is flooded with the bloody thing.

Hydrogen began organizing his troops. Berylium, Magnesium (or Mg for short) and Calcium would hold the front and were known as Group 2. Lithium, Sodium (who preferred to be called Na by his friends) and Potassium (known as K) would back them up and were known as Group 1.
Aluminium heard about the apparent war that was going to happen and wanted to join in. Hydrogen appointed him as a Metal and made him go before the 3rd Period of troops.

You had no clue how to react to this. You wanted to thank the American, but you were pulled back into the crowd of kids that swarmed in the hallway. You didn't fight against the current, just went to class.
You didn't like going to lunch because you usually just sat there alone, and got made fun of. But you forced yourself to go, even if you didn't eat or talk to friends, it was better than sitting in the bathroom and texting your brothers, like you usually did.

With palms raised to the sky, and my fingers spread wide to grip the sunbeams which wash over me, I long entirely to engulf their radiance. At least once, I wish to feel their warmth. Because the world is too icebound, so much that I cannot feel my own heart pulsating and shaking the jagged icicles deep into my stomach and dousing what ever is left of the gusto which ignites my very spirit. For too long am I left shivering, yet I am no slave to the frostbitten demons that have trapped themselves in my bloodstream, and instead a survivor grasping for radiating fissures--despite the singed fingertips I am left to kiss better on my own.
