Kicked while you are on the floor,
Or torn apart by dinosaurs,
Or gruesomely decapitated,
Stabbed with a rusty ice pick,
Digest a chunk of arsenic,
Have hammers crush your knees,
Choke on your favorite frisbee,
Fall on a spire,
Catch on fire,
Have all your ligiments ripped,
Or get shot or pistol-whipped,
Get stuck on island without food,
Have your arms and legs removed,
Find that you have been impaled,
Or get sent anthrax in the mail,
Get your hand stuck in a motor,
Hacked apart by 'copter rotors,

Get injected with cyanide,
Fall in a revene, lose your spleen,
Or fall into a lava stream,
Get dismembered, crushed, or maimed,
Or hit by a bullet train,

Lisa opened the front door slowly, hoping to not draw her mother's attention. She peaked her head in and didn't see her. If she was lucky her mother wouldn't realize what time it was, and that she was home from school. A wind blew in through a window pulling the door shut with an audible thunk.
"Lisa? That you?"
She was in the kitchen; of course. Probably slaving away on some meal that her fat slob of a father wouldn't appreciate. Neither would her brother. Lisa shook her head, she didn't want to think about Bart right now.
"Yeah mom, it's me. Just going to study."
"Where is your brother?" Lisa had already started up the stairs, but paused to answer.
"He said he was going to hang with some friends." Footsteps exited the kitchen and headed towards her. Lisa cursed

Lisa was happy that her daughter Zia looked up to her, and was just as intelligent as she was at her age. She was worried that she would become a total party girl, and become hooked to the web. Christmas was over, it was passed midnight, and she walked to her car with her husband. They waved to her parents and brother; Bart decided to stay the night. The three of them drove off and headed for home, Lisa driving, Milhouse in the seat next to her, and Zia in the back.
Halfway there, the car began to have trouble. Lisa turned to see Milhouse asleep, his head leaning on the window. She looked back at Zia; she had fallen asleep on the back seats. Lisa pulled the car to the side of the road and got out of the car. She opened her hood and tried to find the problem with the car.

It was morning. Amy awoke with dreary eyes and glanced towards her digital alarm clock to notice that it was still quite a bit early. The time read 6:00 a.m. However, she knew that there would be no sense in going back to sleep since her dreams were filled with someone she'd rather not think about at the moment. A grim look came over her face as she rolled out of bed and headed towards her bathroom. Once in, she glanced at her reflection in the mirror and noticed her solemn expression, but then ignored it as she started to get ready.
When she had finished getting dressed and washed up, she headed downstairs towards her kitchen and started looking for something to eat. However, everything she glanced at didn't seem to satisfy her, so she decided to make some tea. While heating up the water in her tea kettle on the stove, she couldn't help but ponder on the many things that had been eating away at her for the past four days now. She just couldn't get the thought of Sonic

Chapter Fourteen: The Battle
Sparky turned Lilo and Angel into electricity and took them to Gantu's ship. He changed them back once they were on top of it and went inside. A moment later a hatch flew open and the girls hopped into the path of danger.
It was dark in the room they'd landed in. Angel clung to Lilo's arm. "I don't like the dark," the experiment moaned.
Sparky looked at them and lit up the room with a faint glow. He put a finger to his lips. "Shush."
"Sorry," whispered Angel.
Sparky put his ear to the door on the other side of the room. He heard noises. "I think they're in here." He took a deep breath and shocked the door. It flew open with a loud clang.
Lilo winced. "They're gonna hear us!"
Angel moaned again. "Oh, I don't like this at all…"
The threesome peered into the room. All six of Stitch's limbs had a metal chain around them binding him to the wall. Gantu was standing next to the experiment, talking to him in a pleased sort of

I Don't Want To Lose You
625 grasped onto the edge of the chair that he sat. Chills went down his spine while he whimpered softly from the dream he was having. The moonlight from the sky shone over at his body, but even light cannot stop the darkness of his dream...
625 found himself walking down a dusty grey pathway. Every time he took a step towards the ground, it would bring up specks of dirt into the air like ash, and also darken his feet. Everything around him was dark. The trees around that pathway were thin and brittle, barely any leaves grew on them neither. No life seemed to be around him. No squirrels on the trees, nor insects resting on top of a leaf. It was eerily quiet, that he could hear himself breathing, and his heart beating wildly in his chest. He was expecting something or someone to pounce on him.
He was so jumpy that even one little sound would scare him, while he shivered. He looked around the thick brush in front of him, their dark green leaves seem

That pod was cramped. Really cramped. And he was like that for… for years. But, after a long, long while, he found he could move again. Cackling in happiness, Sparky jumped out the window and flew into the night sky. He then looked back at the creatures who had freed him.
One of them was like no one Sparky had ever seen. She had light brown skin and black fur on top of her head that hung down to her waist. She was wearing a red dress with white leaves on it and blue sandals.
And the other creature was Stitch.
Sparky smiled back at them, before remembering that he was supposed to be mad at Stitch. Second-best. He scowled and flew away.
After flying for a few minutes, Sparky suddenly realized he had no idea where he was or where he was going. He stopped and looked around him. There

Sparky remembered there being a lot less stairs in Jumba's house, but then again, Jumba might have added some in the three years he'd been dehydrated. He and Bandit climbed step after step after step, and after a while Sparky wondered if it was really worth all this climbing just to watch Jumba make Experiment 626.
Finally, they came to the top step, and there was the door into the experiment making room.
"C'mon," said Bandit. She had to drag Sparky inside, for he couldn't walk another step.
It seemed that Sandy had just gotten there as well. He was talking to Jumba, and Sparky and Bandit were able to run to the other side of the room and hide unnoticed.
"Whadda ya think they're talking about?" whispered Bandit.
"Dunno," Sparky replied.
"Probably discussing 6-2-6's powers and stuff," Bandit said thoughtfully.
"Maybe," said Sparky.
Suddenly Bandit looked worried. "You're buzzing!"
Sparky realized it too. "Can

The experiments froze. No experiment had ever shouted at Jumba before, let alone call him an idiot.
"I did?" asked Jumba blankly. He looked over at the container, where 221 was staring at Bandit. "I did!"
"You promised Electra would be a girl!"

Sparky woke up. He was lying on the floor of a large room; the floor cold and hard. He tried to remember the night before… yes… he had been in Malary's house… trying to run from her. Today he was going to escape from her once and for all, and find Electra and… apologize.
Sparky sat up. "Ouch!" he shouted. He had put his hand down on a small bit of glass. He looked around. Why was there water and shards of glass everywhere? It looked as if some one had tipped over a glass flowerpot, except there were no flowers to be seen.
"Sparky," someone whispered. "It's really you."
Sparky recognized the voice and growled. "Bandit."
"Um, hi," said Bandit, stepping out from behind a large box on the floor and over to him, trying to avoid standing on glass. "Remember me?"

Writing Tutorial: Dialogue"An Amateur-Editor's Note on How to Paragraph Dialogue, and Other Dialogue-Related Crime Avoidance Techniques" by DailennaWriting Tutorial: Dialogue7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
On my daily walk about the internet I often come across some horrible piece of writing at which I'm forced to stop reading and take a few deep breaths to calm myself before either sending a note to the writer, or fleeing in terror. These pieces of writing are usually just an accumulation of terrible spelling, grammar, syntax, and too much or too little plot, description, dialogue or action. Yes, there are stories that may have a lean towards dialogue or action and still look absolutely wonderful – in fact, these are the stories usually best written, because the author has learnt how to use their skills and mediums to produce the best result from a usually disastrous content – but the bundles of words I'm referring to have not had the same care and talent poured into them.
It could be the case that small children and people who don't have English as a
Character Creation TutorialCharacter creation is one of the most enjoyable aspects of being an artist or writer. This is where creativity can truly thrive as a person's imagination shines at its brightest as they form an image of a character that they find special. No matter what kind of art interests a person, characters tend to bring the depth needed to hook the viewer is looking for so that they can focus on the visual or literary piece.Character Creation Tutorial6 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Anyone can create at least one character if they put their mind to it. This tutorial will assist you in setting up your own character(s) that you may enjoy for as long as you wish.
Why make a character?
As previously stated, a character serves high importance in creating a memorable piece of art. Of course, this is not always the case, but that varies depending on the genre that you, the artist or writer, specialize in. Character creation is also an effective way to keep the creative juices in the brain flowing as

Experiment #: 636
She's a somewhat tall experiment at exactly 3 feet. Her head is somewhat shaped like a football with two fluffs at the tips. Her ears are at the top of her head in about the same place as cat ears would be. Her ears are exactly like llama ears, but she can't swivel her ears forward—only out to the side and back. Her body is an elongated version of Stitch's body, but Sheeko doesn't have as big of a belly as Stitch does. She has in total six arms, but usually keeps the four arms that are retractable retracted. Her arms, hands, legs, and feet are the same as Stitch's besides the fact that they're slightly longer. She also has two tails, both retractable; but only one tail can be withdrawn at a time. She has four wings with a large triangle at the end and two slightly misshaped squares after it.

But I have certainly read a few
And it has become clear that the easiest way to write a poem
Is to sit around and boil and stew
All the feelings you have ever felt
Into the melting pot
Just stir and whir and leave to melt
Preheat to 180c and boil up the lot!
Feel free to embellish on what you feel
And all that has happened to you
Talk about how you're becoming dead inside
How at any moment you may keel
It need not have to rhyme
Poets do that all the time
In fact the 'best' poems
Are the ones that don't
Now grab your thesaurus
And grab your spell check
If your poem has mistakes
You'll raise all bloody heck!
Use as many words as possible
Describe and don't forget
To use the most complicated words
Would be your safest bet
Twist your words
Make it sound absurd
Make it hard to understand
The best poems are all muddled up
Word by word and verse by verse
Hard to decode and hard to read
These poets have some unconscious need
