And here I stay

You do not know how hard I cry,
When I see the letter 'i'
Written as a letter, small,
And not allowed to grow up tall.
There is a part of me that bleeds
Every single time I read
A poem where the punctuation's lacking
It may be style but I think it's slacking.
I get all tied-up in a tizz
When you don't know what enjambment is.
Read it up, why don't you, please
Line breaks don't tell you where to breathe.
Simple things like commas, can,
When mauled by misunderstanding hands,
Be placed like decorations on a face
And never know their rightful place.
A period, our lovely friend,
Denotes where a sentence ends.
So leave him out? I think no,
Unless you want your sentence to go
On and on and on and on
Until the mind is deadened, gone.
Semi-colons, hyphens, dashes,
Each one of these adds splashes
Of punctuated colour upon our page;
They aren't outdated they cannot age.
Punctuation and grammar; two best friends,
Governed by rules that should not b

Well you are probably wondering why I'm bothering to review this year's E3 right now considering by the time anyone reads this everyone will have forgotten about it. "Sit back in the corner and shut up old man nobody care what you have to say." Well you're probably right but the reason I'm doing this is more for me than anyone else. I'm trying to become a game journalist so I'm having a stab at it and seeing if anyone thinks it's any good. So don't come to me saying "Come on dude everyone knows this stuff already." I am well aware of that, I'm just practicing the art of reviewing and arguing. Anyway enough of these blathing lets jump into E3 2012.
Nintendo's press conference.
Well considering last year's Nintendo press conference was an absolute snooze fest of rehashed games and a semi interesting WII U. No new IPs no innovation 10 year old graphics just the same old crap as before. There was nothing that screamed out hey Sony hey Microsoft look at this, can you do any better?

Eragon sat on his surprisingly comfortable throne while he listened to his fellow riders discuss the events and politics of Alagaësia and the other known lands.
The room was large, tall and dark, illuminated only by coloured fire that circled the room behind the seated riders. Each rider sat in similar, yet smaller seats than Eragon and wore clothing respective of their cultural backgrounds with colours that represented their dragons scattered among their person.
Eragon himself was wearing his usual dark leathers, a green tunic similar to the ones he wore in Ellesmera centuries ago, underneath a mountainous indigo cloak layered with wolf furs and armour that rested on his shoulders.
He watched as his riders told of the peace and conflict throughout the surrounding lands, a sense of pride swelling throughout him as he listened to Rider Kadvar, a Kull, tell of his victory in the south. He had protected the harvest of the southern villages from raiding bandits. Having trained Kadvar

It was almost midnight and Sakura was sitting in her apartment, looking out in the dark night. The clouds were heavy of unshed rain, and the thunder roared in the distance. She closed her green eyes and sighed. I guess he wont come tonight either, she whispered as the rain began to fall.
She got up from her couch and walked up to the window, gazing up in the sky, trying to see the stars hidden behind the clouds. If I see even one small star, just the glints of it, Ill trust hell come back. She barely had time to stop thinking when a bolt of lightening lightened up her dark apartment.
The rain didnt stop falling, and Sakura went to bed, her heart in pieces. I wont stop believing, she whispered, halfway into the world of dreams. Ill never give up on you She fell asleep with her loved ones name on her tongue.

And today seems to be another good day, because there has already been some customers, and here comes some more. Three women. One is obviously old enough. Id guess late thirties or early forties.

Inflation SchoolLucy glanced around the corridors of Steam Coast High, trying to familiarize herself with the new school. Being at a new school was pretty scary, but what she had found out threw rumour was even scarier. Apparently at this school, girls liked to inflate each other. Instead of a prank being snogging someone else's boyfriend, they liked to stick a hose in the other's pants. Steam Coast was an all-girls school, halls constantly packed and classes constantly full. Lucy gazed down at her timetable and saw what lesson she had next: maths. She hurried along, hunting for the room she was supposed to be in, catching a glimpse of herself in the reflection of a window. She stood out like a sore-thumb here, with curly blonde hair accompanying her chocolate brown eyes. She didn't feel right being compressed into a school uniform, her old school didn't have one, but this "new expensive private school" did.

Two sisters named Karai and Yumi trained for their right to be the next heirs of their families. It’s true they were sisters but they couldn’t be any more different. Karai was a sweet younger woman with long raven hair tied back into a bun with bamboo chop sticks. A long, indigo ribbon wrapped tightly around her for head and tied to the back of her skull tightly.

[It was only through discussion with Aftershow that I became aware of the beautiful Miss Coleman, and it is with his help that this story approaches something close to realistically representing British society, which I do not live in, nor have I ever truly experienced. This story would not have been possible without his assistance, consultation, and ideas. I hope that my skills have done his vision justice.

Victoria Vanished Finale“mmmppphhh!!!” Victoria moaned through her gag as she struggled against the ropes holding her tightly hogtied on the floor. The teenage girl was soaked with sweat from her exertions and she’d rubbed the bare skin of her wrists raw straining against the coils of rough rope that bound her hands. Despite all that, her bonds remained as tight as ever. The poor girl’s shoulders burned from the strain of the hogtie, her jaw ached from being forced to accommodate the massive wad of cloth stuffed in her mouth to keep her quiet and the thick band that kept her effectively muzzled.Victoria Vanished Finale1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

By Marcus, with lots of help from Nomad and Rohana.
The cold grey industrial building loomed large in the fading light of the day. Its sides and fence curiously unlit, so the whole site was cloaked in gloom. The stillness and growing darkness broken only by slight clinks as the armoured guards paced the length of the fence... and a flash of white darting between two semi-trailer containers. The sudden movement somehow caught attention of the nearest guard, the vertically aligned red 'eyes' of their helmet slowly scanning the container area.
A bright amber eye peaked back, sensing the guard's stare, but hidden in the shadows the creamy-coffee skinned girl's gaze went undetected. After a long slow moment the guard shook their head and continued on.
Sophie let out a relieved breath as she watched the guard walk off, brushing a hand back through her pigtailed white hair, silently chiding herself for not bringing something to hide it under. It was easil

Girls around the class were looking at her, a sea of "Oh my god!"'s raining from the onlookers as Lucy's crumpled body began to take shape and girls began to recognize her.

Twilight, having just met up with her old rival, Sunset Shimmer, was now standing between her and the one pony that the latter probably never wanted to see again, Princess Celestia. The young alicorn knew all too well the kind of history these two had, and was not keen on being here to see what words would pass between them.

To the right of him stood Ince, clothed in a white, loose dress. They had pillaged it earlier, but it was worthless up until this point. Once worn by Ince, it looked like it could have belonged to royalty. Hart admired him as Ince stared out into the horizon.

It would allow for those mere large, small dreams to become my reality, taking me away from this hurtful and judgmental world. To take away the reek of posh and cruelty from my body to be replaced with roses and freshly cut grass after an April shower.

we have wanderlust built into our core; we bleed out the seasons when it suits us.
