Our first kiss made the power surge…
We pulled away in laughter.
Our second conjured lightening
from the rain drenched
Your glasses freckled with raindrops.
Sixteen droplets. I counted.
Each one magnified brilliant
eyes that I kissed with my own.
Your kisses fuel my childish heart
like lollipops and root beer floats
with vanilla ice cream foam.
They taste much better
when your lips taste them too.
My lips energize when yours find mine…
I feel static in my fingertips
every time they brush your face.
We are electric, you and I.
This is Strider TerritoryHe was in the shower when he heard it. Someone jiggled the knob on the front door to their apartment before opening and shutting it quietly. He heard a trail of multiple footsteps making their way into his apartment, putting him on the alert. He paused and listened, knowing full well that Dave was holed up in his room doing whatever it was 13 year old boys did alone in their rooms.This is Strider Territory4 years ago in Humor More Like This
Bro turned the water off to get a better listen, realizing now that Dave probably forgot to lock the door. The little grub-monkey was always shirking his duties, and it wasn't like they lived in a pristine part of town where break-ins didn't happen. It was a common enough occurrence; just not one he'd actually expected to take place in his own apartment.
A pair of heavy footsteps stopped outside the door to the bathroom. The air was thick and tangible as he paused and held his breath, waiting for whoever it was out there to make their move.

The blackness of my soul, more dark than panthers nads.
The sadness I feel, so sads, so sads.
Everyone hates me, I'm so alone,
Here, online, where everyone pwn's.
But not me…I'm so hard done to I say,
Using Daddy's money all day on eBay.
But he hates me, as does Mom,
I know, as they only give me one
Hundred dollars a week.
I mean, who gets that? Only an unloved geek…
So that is why I became Goth,
To show all those who stare and mock.
With my dyed black hair and long metal chains,
I laugh at the people, they're all the same.
But not me and my friends, we don't conform.
We're unique, we're not the norm.
Just because we all dress alike,
All wearing huge boots and long metal spikes,
Doesn't mean we're the same, oh no no sir,
We're just more clever than you, it's obvious duh!
Or maybe I'm Emo, who is to tell?
Maybe I'm atheist, going straight to hell.
But that's okay, 'cause hell's better than here,
Where people mock and people jeer.
They keep on saying I'm gay, but why?

When you go out on your Pilgrimage, you aren't supposed to come back untouched. You're supposed to learn about the rest of the world to benefit your people. Trying to find out more about the geth was what I thought would be the best way to do that.
My father had a picture of a house that he'd show me when I was younger. He'd say, "this is where we'll live, Tali'Zorah. We won't have to worry about suit environments then."
So, I fight because I love my father, and because through him, I've come to be able to love the rest of the galaxy too. And because I love the picture of that house enough to want it to be more than a piece of paper.

How to Own Your WolfabooThere is nothing wrong with wanting to protect an animal, namely one that you love, but please do not spread lies about it.How to Own Your Wolfaboo5 years ago in Drama More Like This
Statement #1: Wolves have never attacked people before.
Truth: Has teeth, will bite! You cannot exclude captive wolves from this sort of statement. Any predatory animal can and will bite under the circumstances. There is plenty of documentation that shows wolves have indeed been known to attack humans, including the natives. This is, of course, taking into account rabid, healthy, provoked and unprovoked wolves. But the main focal point being that wolves HAVE attacked people before. One of the most famous pieces of literature documenting wolf attacks is Wolves in Russia by Will N. Graves and Valerius Geist.
Statement #2: Ok, but there has never been a documented case of a healthy wolf killing a human in North America.
Truth: There are in fact two that recently happened over the past 6 years, Candice Berner and Kenton Carn
Cid's SoliloquyDisappointment is in the eye of the beholder. I dunno how many times I've seen kids' faces fall as their parents explain that the star they just wished on was a satellite. What the hell's so bad about satellites, anyway? They're a helluva lot more impressive than stars, I'll tell ya that. Stars, there are billions of 'em up there, and the light we see from them down here on earth takes so long to reach us that it ain't even really there anymore, once we see it. Satellites are strong, reliable. They orbit us and give us all this information about us that we couldn't possibly figure out without 'em. They take us into the future... Imagine what those ancient civillizations thought about when they used to look up into the sky. Did they ever think that someday they might be able to see the world as we can now? From space, just floatin' around with all the other planets. Makes us seem a whole lot less special, don't it? But we gotta know how it is.

By Hysterical Woman
After John told him the whole creepy story of how the four came to be, Dave's first thought was "Wait, this means my brother is OLD?!?" After all, from what John described of his brother on that fateful day, the guy must have been at least twenty. Thirteen years had passed since then, so the guy was now in his thirties. He was born in that uncool era called the Seventies, an era only a dork like John could love. Dave had always thought that Bro was twenty-three (he just liked the number twenty-three). As a young twenty-something, Bro's moves were beyond cool, but as a middle-aged guy - ugh, he's like Tony Hawk! He should put away the baseball cap and dress in a suit and a tie. It just wasn't right, mutton dressed as lamb or in this case Dad dressed as Bro.
It made sense though, Bro being more like Dad or Mom's age. Dave couldn't remember a time when Bro wasn't above legal age. Growing up alone with Bro, he hadn't realized it was weird not to have a mom o

It gets better, it really does, I can promise you.
In middle school, I was bullied, probably for the same reasons as you. It's okay now, even though the memories still hurt, I made a change in my life.
Always remember, you're beautiful, no matter what anyone else says. I don't need to know you to know that.
And anyone who gets a kick out of hurting you...it's because they're a lonely, empty, unhappy person.

Shaping it into a masterpiece.
I didnt paint it onto the ceiling of some church,
Going blind from the pain and the stress.
I didnt even turn this in on time.

You can bet Im not concerned with iambs and troches and Italian terza rima.

Basics of Make Up!
A lot of people asked to give them advice about how to do make up, so I collected the important things. But I'm not saying that eyeryone should do it in this way, I just want to give some help.
So here you go :
Some advices for choosing your make up-type:
- first, you need to make sure which colours fit your skintone! For example, if you have a bit darker skintone, brown hair and brown eyes, never use blue eyeshadow on the upper eyelids! It's very important, you don't want to look tasteless. Apply the colour and ask your friends, how does it look on you, or ask a professional.
Simple or Dramatic?
- unfortunately dramatic make up with bright colours and bold eyeliner doesn't fit everyone. Make sure you didn't overdo your everyday look.
- so which shade emphasize your eyecolour? Examine the colour wheel: the complementer colours are in front of each other, they're opposites (green-red, blue-orange, yellow-purple) they emphasize each other. You ca

we like to hear things like 'you're beautiful' and
'i'd die without you' but deep inside we always know
you don't mean it.
and it just tears us apart slowly, no matter how much
we love those poisonous lies.
and when you ask 'are you okay?', we're going to
answer with 'i'm fine'. and you'll hear that
even if our bones are shattering inside of us and
our hands are trembling from all the hurt that we go through.
because we play our music too-loud-to-bear so that,
when we're all alone,
it chases away the thoughts that come with the silence:
things that haunt our nightmares and reasons why
we don't like to be alive.
we leave too many s p a c e s between our letters because
that's how we feel. all a.l.o.n.e.
and maybe you'll change that for a little while, but

My curtains were shut, the only indicator of morning were the birds. In the forest they felt like the alarm clocks of nature. But they definitely sounded more gentle than the PROMETHEUS soundtrack at 5am.
I raised my frill to look around. At 10ft tall, with a 16 foot length you wouldn't think I would be able to fit on any bed. However, my legs could bend in several places. This allowed me to fold them against my ribs and curl into a ball with my tail. The only problem was my frill, but it didn't matter much. I yawned letting out a small raspy hiss. I stretched as far as I could without falling off. Leaning my frill back, I thought about how to expose myself to the public. Thoughts of hunters, scientists, and dissections flashed through my head. But a Xenomorph can't stay cooped up in a claustrophobic house! My mind forgot about all of that as the scent of Bacon fogged my senses.

The sun shined off of my frill as I slowly was awoken from my slumber. I had escaped the police after running far into the woods. But now I was lost. I decided last night that I'd return in a week, but now I didn't know where I was. A human would've been able to tell from the direction the sun was rising. But the light seemed to come from everywhere when I looked for it. I kept my face down and I searched the forest floor for somewhere to hide from the light.
After about 20 minutes of crawling in a desert of blinding light, I believed I had found a cave. My long arms dragged the rest of myself inside and my vision started returning at a rate that felt alien. The bird's annoying chatter had finally stopped. I swear they were laughing

Please forgive any spelling or grammar errors. You go ahead and try typing with claws. I can't even see the keyboard, not that I'd need to. Where are my manners? Let me introduce myself. Hello, my name is Tristan. Ever since I was 12 I've loved Xenomorphs. If you don't know what those are then stop reading and Netflix Alien and Aliens. I've loved all variations of Xenos. From the warriors from Aliens, to the swimmers from Alien Resurrection. I love them all, even the Predalien from the comics was cool. But my favorite of all, were the Praetorians. They stood 9-11 feet tall and were the Queen's royal guards. They had a crest similar to the queens and were a perfect balance. I liked warriors, I also liked queens, but if I could be any Xenomorph I'd want to be a Praetorian. This is the story about what happens when your wish consumes you.
