FAQ on Muscle WomenWhy do you like muscle women?FAQ on Muscle Women8 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Because we find them sexy! Each fan will give you a slightly different answer, but that's the general idea. In the same way that the media tries to convince us that slim women are sexy, and history tells us that fat women were sexy.
Besides that, some fans find muscular women exotic, especially as a warrior-type character.
Aren't they guys with boobs?
It's about how you choose to see it. Muscular women are still very female in behaviour and personality. Women are inwardly strong by nature and constitution (they gotta be for childbearing and raising a family), and muscles are an outward expression of that. Some prefer more muscles, some prefer less, but like the rush that She-Hulk feels as she transforms into a muscle goddess, muscle fans enjoy the feeling of that exhilaration.
Amazons seem mythical to us, because history often prefers to forget about strong and powerful women. Yet such women have always been a part of human civilisation, and

Violento. EziLeoCanvases toppled, tore and were reduced to ruin as Ezio pushed his way through the display of art, avoiding the horde of guards that had been alerted to his presence only moments ago. His target lay dying on the floor, blood pooling from the single stab wound from the assassin's newly developed blade, his eyes glazing over as the hand clutching the wound slumped to the floor. Screams of terror rang throughout the area as women sheltered their children and husbands their wives, he could hear the metallic clangs of swords hitting the concreted walls of the narrow passageway that their chase had taken a turn down. The wind blew hard against him, his hood flying back over his shoulders as he hurtled through a group of civilians blocking the arched doorway, crashing to the ground before scrambling to his feet haphazardly; all too aware of how close the guards seemed to be closing the distance between them.Violento.

Why did he do this?
It all started with my friend. After my parents left for vacation in the afternoon, I had the whole weekend to myself. Of course, they would call me from time to time, but I wish they stayed. I logged on to Skype and chatted with my friend. The quality wasn’t so great because of the storm outside but I could still chat with him. He told me about the new game called Minecraft, which I’ve heard a lot in school. It had just come out last month for the Xbox. He begged me to play it, and I was pretty convinced. So, before the storm got even worse, I rode my bike to Gamestop and asked for a Minecraft game for the computer. I doubted they had the Xbox version. Lucky for me, they actually had a Minecraft game for the Xbox version. I was excited and blessed that they actually had one. The clerk told me that it was already used and someone just returned it yesterday. All the files were
Connor: The Stuff of LifeHe walked right into it. He grunted, confronted with five men. They were a hard faced sort, smudged skin and clothes. Their chins had not seen a razor in weeks, probably. Not that he was worried about their appearance. At least not in the hygienic sense. It was what they held in their hands that drew his attention. Pistols. Swords. One of them had a rifle but no bayonet. The long barrel was pointed at his chest.Connor: The Stuff of Life3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
With his feet in a wide stance, Connor stood, assessing. Retreat was still possible. He did not sense anything behind his back. He had never been one to fall back, however. Not from battle. Threats did not frighten him.
"And just where do you think you are going, friend?" one of the cutthroats asked, his dark eyes glinting dangerously.
Connor did not answer, just fixed him with a long hard stare. He held his hands carefully away from his weapons. Perhaps this was a mistake, possibly it was not him they really were waiting for. But then, he'd never believed in coincidence. There

But I was wrong, you broke my heart

I thought second chances meant
to start over new and get things right.
Now I know thats a bunch of bullshit,
you only go through the same pain twice.
I shouldnt have let you wander
and let your love go astray.
All the freedom that I gave you
only made you go away.
I trusted that you would stay loyal,
you told me that youd always be honest.
Well, we can see how well that worked out
you went and broke your promise.
Dont you say that I didnt care
because I gave you room to breathe.
I only let you do what you want
because I didnt want you to leave.
All I ever wanted
was a little bit of your time.
You barely gave me any,
but I gave you all of mine.
Its the little things that matter;
thats what we used to promise each other.
But now youve gone and let me down

The comb went through the dark brown hair, along the shimmering shine the tresses had in the midday light. The hair was smooth and long, a little curled from the braid it was worn in often. There was a measured pace to the movement of the comb through the womans hair. The quiet almost sibilant hiss of the hair parting as the combs teeth untangled its length. The arm wielding the comb was strong and muscled using the instruments of war and womanly arts with equal ease. The face in the polished bronze mirror before her was distorted but she did not need to see herself to know that shed been changed.
Change was her very nature, she knew. She had started out as a slave, sold as a child to a man who set her to wait on his wife. She had grown up there under his wifes kindly guidance. She had been more like a daughter than a servant. She never remembered her parents all she knew was that her name was her grandmothers and shed n
EzioxLeonardo 'HEART/LET LOVE IN' Chapter 1It was a warm, sunny Roma afternoon - well, rather on the hot side actually - but the sun beating down upon the crowded streets below was made mercifully bearable by an occasional cool breeze swept in from the sea.EzioxLeonardo 'HEART/LET LOVE IN' Chapter 12 years ago in Romance More Like This
Leonardo da Vinci walked those streets on that very afternoon, red beret in one hand and fanning himself as he went. Perhaps it was folly for a man of such fair complexion to be outside at a time such as this; but these moments of freedom were rare in his current situation and heatwave or not, the heavy heart he’d carried for the past few weeks was feeling somewhat lighter by even this simple act.
Of course, that wasn't to say that Leonardo's surroundings were precisely the most ideal for his creative mind; the current state of suppression under the Borgia had long taken its' toll on the populace and was known to Leonardo even in his highly closeted state. These people of Roma were truly a dismal lot; and with no work, no hope to be had, it was little wonder.
The NecklaceI still remember my necklace. The gleaming purple jewel. The yellow border. The mysterious power and the thrilling shock it sent through my body when I wore it, and the price it had for me to keep it.The Necklace1 year ago in Horror More Like This
I found it in my backyard when I caught my white terrier dog, Snuff, digging holes in the backyard. “Snuff! Bad boy.” I laughed as he licked my face. I let him inside, and a spark caught my eye. I looked down at one of the holes that Snuff was digging and saw the necklace. I’m a normal kid, see. But, I do have a favor of shiny things, like gold and silver. The golden necklace put me in a trance that I couldn’t break. So, I picked up the necklace and stuffed it into my pocket. I didn’t want to show my parents. Surly they’ll give it to the museum, and no matter how much money they bribe me for it, I’ll never give this precious baby up. I ran inside and thudded up the stairs and into my room. I locked the door and slumped on my bed. I immediately sea
Connor: Of Heart and SoulHis breath rattled in his throat. His father held him easily by the front of his torn bloodied robes. They were soaked in thick dark blood that gently seeped from the gunshot wound to his side and sword cut to his chest. His body was a ruin of bruises and injuries and scars. He had not seen thirty summers – and now it appeared would not see any more.Connor: Of Heart and Soul3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
“The Assassins are finished,” Haytham hissed, shaking him and then letting him go. Connor crumpled bonelessly to the ground, his cheek pressed against the cool earth. He could not move. Did not want to move. Had no will. No strength to defend himself when his father’s boot kicked him over onto his side. The bitterness of defeat, of his immanent death, roiled in his mouth mixed with the blood that he could no longer summon energy to spit. It simply slid from the corner of his closed mouth in a red rivulet, slow like lava down a volcano. Haytham’s hand on his gasping chest was a distant, disembodied sensation.

These women were an idea of the others who thought he needed to try and get out a little more. That, and to get laid. His friend was always the headstrong type who would rather spend his money on women and drinks rather than the normal things such as finding a place to live on his own or attending school. It was why the two of them shared an apartment, after all. They had been friends since grade school which was why he bothered dealing with the other for so long.

And it was that reason alone that he despised this evening more than most. He would often see his friend leaving with a female for the evening or hear them if he decided to bring her home on the rare occasion, but watching him openly flirt and touch her body was just revolting. Of course, the female he was with would lean against him and try to act as her friend was.

Write to me in black wet ink so your words may last
In restless ignorance I soon found myself, exhausted and shook
Bruises don't linger to my skin but old bones will always crack
It's a fresh kind of thrill to do just what you simply shouldn't
Who knows what suspends the ceiling with all that it lacks
No pillars, nor walls, and to imagine it, well, you couldn't
But this is it, hail on skin, and frost in lungs, then into the floor you smack
And the gale of the moment leads you in to a calming decent
So let's try and not let this wither away and lets never holdback
I'll listen to that beautiful voice and taste the smoke on your tongue
While the October moon travels across the sky so steady and black
I'll remember this time when we were happy and young

Ezio x Leo oneshotThe nights in Venice were usually unforgiving, but they were only that much worse when the weather became dull. The skies had been crying for hours on end, taking the life away from the day that had previously passed, giving way to the dark and dangerous night. In this weather though, most people preferred to stay indoors, if they had a place to seek refuge. The tears of angels slid down upon the tiled rooftops, drenching the archers that were unfortunate enough to have been told to stay where they had been assigned, which also limited their vision of the world around.Ezio x Leo oneshot4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

BDSM?BDSM; four simple letters with a truly eminent stigma attached to them. The connotation does not come from its innocuous uses – such as the Burrenton District Sailing Manifold - but the acronym for 'bondage & domination,' and 'sadism and masochism.' Yes, this refers to more than just chaining a stranger to a wall and flogging them with a cat-o'-nine-tails – it is an all-encompassing spectrum of often-erotic activities. Tying up your partner during intercourse, erotically roleplaying, even, to a degree, teasing each other are all elements of BDSM – but the one omnipresent and critical element is the concept of partners taking on complementary but unequal roles. BDSM is more than seeing a woman carry around a 'man-slave' on Law & Order – it is a widespread sub-culture and lifestyle. BDSM is much less 'deviant' than one would assume; in fact, many participate in BDSM activities without ever knowing it.BDSM?6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

So you, our amazing religious protagonist, have recently uncovered that the person currently talking to you is an atheist. How, that depends. Maybe he or she rejected a religious gesture from you. Maybe it came up by an offhand remark. Maybe that person is very much involved with the public image of atheism. Who knows? Either way, it's out. So you either don't care and move on or, as we will discuss here, you feel it's essential to talk about it.
So before you do, stop. Take a deep breath. Let any kind of shock you may feel subside a little. Take a look at that person. Provided they weren't assholes to begin with, they'll still be nice to you. Provided you aren't at a Halloween party or under the influence of mind-altering substances, they probably haven't grown a set of horns and a pointy tail.

That game. That pokemon game that I beloved so much. Now, it’s only a memory.
On a Saturday night while my parents were asleep, I secretly tip-toed to my bag full of games. I always loved to sneak in a game of Pokemon or Zelda on my 3Ds on the weekends and I rummaged in my dusty bag full of games when my hand felt a cold cartage at the bottom of the bag. I froze. I carefully pulled it out to find my old Pokemon Black 2 game for the DS. I smirked. I haven’t played this for a long time. So, I found my old DS and shoved the game into the cartage slot, and began. I selected my Saved File, just for the heck of it. Turns out, I was in a desert with 5 pokemon. I had a Watchog, a Munna, a Lampet, a Vulpix, and a-WHAT?! I stared at the screen in shock. A level 100 Latios. What? I chose the Latios and decided to look at its moves and stats. It had only one move. Detect. I was in shock and wonder. Did I erase the other moves? It’s been a while since I played it, yet I don’
