Vampires: once considered beasts of legend (and still considered such by the general public), these enigmatic monsters seemed to capture the imagination of humans the world round. On almost every continent you can find folklore about some creature that disguises itself as human to feast on human blood. We now know that, despite these myths fantastic qualities, there is a basis in fact to the vampire, as well as a wide family tree of these dastardly bloodsuckers. While almost all known types of vampire are actually human victims afflicted with a virus, there is one species the living vampire, if you will that is actually a subgroup of our own species, whose blood is the root of the plague. The origins of this species go even higher, into planes of reality we have only started to comprehend. This essay will briefly summarize the origin of vampires as well

a shivering light bursts,
in the dark night.
I await a protector.
A definition of beauty,
of bravery you are;
eyes like diamonds
filled with mere hope;
filling me with hope.
Through the cold air you run, frisky and gracious;
the madness will step aside,
as the charm spreads on.
And the shine swallows the darkness;
as the lanterns light up in our eyes.

As kaiju attacks have been going on the rise, many have been wondering what exactly a kaiju is. The First Age of Monsters is a subject that has been under taught in schools, seen as just a string of coincidental freak accidents and little more. Now that we are experiencing the Second Age of Monsters, it has become clear that the giant creatures are much more than that. Yet what makes a kaiju different from other animals? How do they come to be? Precious few know the answers to these questions, and kaijuologists like myself have been working for years to improve those answers. This purpose of this short essay is to state, in layman's terms, what a kaiju is, how they come to be, and the different classes of kaiju are.
What Exactly is a Kaiju?
The word "kaiju" is Japanese. Roughly translated, it means "strange beast" or "monster."
Skull Preservation TutorialSkull Preservation Tutorial5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I've been asked multiple times how I go about cleaning and preserving the skulls that I find so I've decided to put together a sort of FAQ/how-to regarding this subject. Please keep in mind that there is more than one "right" way to achieve things in the realm of taxidermy. This is just the way I do my skulls/bones.
You will need:
Plastic bag for picking up your treasure
A good sized flower pot
An ant hill (if possible)
Disposable plastic gloves
Nice sized metal pot kept solely for boiling skulls/bones
Plastic container for soaking the skull/bones in
Hydrogen peroxide 3%-7%
Small pokey thing for helping remove brain bits and other yuck
Super glue, tacky glue, or Elmer's glue for putting the teeth back in
Hokay. While out hiking, I've come across many different skulls/bones of animals in various stages of decomposition. The best ones are when nature has already done most of the work for you and it's already pretty clean. One of the drawbacks of finding them like this tho
I am an ARTIST.Do you see the pretty colors,I am an ARTIST.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
masterpieces yet to be born.
Imagination full of wonders
on a sheet just freshly torn.
Create a piece so wonderous,
to stand the strain of time.
A collection of great colors
without any reason, need, or rhyme.
Molding a world of freedom
with the colors on a palette.
The brushes may be the actors
emotions that only paint can display
A world free of pain and sorrow
will be born between the lines.
Fingers dance across a keyboard
poetry shall never be confined.
A broken heart is mended
with just a dash of red.
A lonely desert replenished
as the blues help it be fed.
A voice is in these paintings,
they sing words yet to be spoken.
Bring light into the darkness
for those who have yet to be awoken.
Art is refuge and expression
the key to chains we bare.
The escape from dull reality
no matter how its shared.

Okay, first of all. What is Roleplay (RP)?
'Roleplay' or RP is the term used for 'acting' as a character, controlling their actions and words and allowing them to interact with other characters through your posts. Alot of people RP their OC, Fursona, Anime Characters, Horses, Wolves etc.
Now, there's NO need to be 'embarassed' about RP, I've seen alot of people say "I want to RP, but don't tell anyone". Why? Because, the second you mention Roleplay to someone who isn't farmiliar with it, they think of either Cosplay or Sex. To people who participate, RP is to act as your OC, Sona etc. Most people RP like this...
// Rose: Hi I'm Rose [offers hand] nice to meet you! //
// Edward: Hey Rose, my names Ed [smiles and shakes hand] the pleasure is mine //
I hate this RP 'style', I call it MSN RP.
MSN RP vs. Story RP
I'm not saying there are right or wrong ways to Roleplay, but it's so much more interesting and interact

Sadly, today was not his day: Naruto had gone (although more like dragged) shopping for the day with his two guardians, Kakashi and Iruka Hatake, their daughter, Nami, and his older sister, Yukki. No, today was not his day, birthday or not.
"Sasuke?" The young boy turned towards the voice to see his older brother, Itachi Uchiha, watching him, hands in pockets, the dark cloak blowing behind him in the slight breeze.

TERMS- HISTORY - POPULATION - RACIAL FEATURES - TODAY - NOTABLES
A GENERAL NOTE
SPECIES VS. RACE
- The more polite term would be 'race.' In our world we're used to the only intelligent group being humanity so we divide ourselves by looks and call them races. In the Network the more obvious divisions are between the various sentient species. When Networkers say 'race' they mean your species. If they want to refer to your physical characteristics as a human they might say ethnicity.
- 'Species' is reserved for animals. 'Breed' is never used for break-down within the races, again only for animals. Using 'species' or 'breed' to refer to an intelligent being and/or their race is bigotry, except in science and medicine when it's considered okay to use 'species' to refer to the races. It's not politically correct but it's scientifically accurate.

"Correction, you'll look like a slutty idiot " A smile creeps back over Angela's face.

Jason reaches into the packaging, pulling out the tennis outfit and holds it up against her body. Shutting her eyes, she soon cringes as an uncomfortably tight and low cut sports bra forms over her chest, leaving the majority of her midriff exposed. Her jeans disappear into her flesh as a small white mini skirt emerges from her hips, barely extending below her ass, concealing her black undergarments. The color in her sneakers bleaches to pure white as athletic socks form around her feet and stop just above her ankles. Looking into her reflection in mirror above the sink, Jason blushes as she lets the extra costume fall from her hands to the floor.

By Dr. Mortimer Promelion
Though the word Ghost tends to conjure a negative connotation in scientific circles, it is nonetheless the most accurate term I can use to describe the various residual traces of terrestrial ethereal energy, i.e. the electricity generated by the nervous systems of Earth organisms, which has been documented time and time again by agents of this facility. This document is to be considered highly classified information, it is to be held in the Aea 51 facility until it is declassified.
1. What is Ethereal Energy?
Ethereal energy is a loosely defined term used to refer to both the electricity used to conduct nerve impulses as well as that which is used as the body of a race of incredibly powerful cosmic lifeforms we have tentatively dubbed Ethereal Beings, as both types of energy have so far been proven to be exactly the same.

A low growl rumbled out of its throat and was followed by the sound of thick gobs of saliva splattering against the ground. Step by step it quietly lurked through the forest, disengaged from its surroundings and focused only on one thing: the weighty, throbbing sensation that was settled at the back of its smooth, carapace like head.
It could sense her not far off in the distance. Several hundred meters at best.
Tilting its head, it took note of everything else it sensed in the area. The trees, thick with thin, black little leaves that rustled every so slightly against the winds whisper, the insects that chirped in annoyance at being stepped over, the animals that shied away from it, and most of all

Naruto Uzumaki, now six years old, meowed childishly to himself, giggling, and batted playfully at the ball of orange yarn. It was Iruka's present for him, since he remembered the time the young kit had been kicked out of the sewing store for attacking and destroying a whole shelf of balled string. This way, the young sensei and adoptive father had decided, the kit could give into his cat instincts to chase and play, and not cause any damage.
'Well almost no damage ' Iruka sweat dropped as the young kit, who had managed to tangle himself up in the tread and roll into the drawers, causing one of the picture frames to shake in the spot before falling; luckily it didn't crack on impact.
Even through all the trouble that the curious kit caused, Iruka couldn't help but love him with everything he possessed. Naruto

It has been about two hours, fifteen minutes, and twenty-five seconds since Emily had passed out. To tell you the truth, Kendall and I haven't had a clue on why she fainted in the first place. Maybe because of all the things that had been going on the whole day.
I watch in silent as Kendall dabbed a wet cloth over Emily's forehead, while I was pacing around our new condo. Then we both heard Emily's body started to react, as she tries to reach out for something in her sleep. I stopped, and look, but then started pacing again.
Finally, Kendall sighs."Will you please stop with your pacing? You're driving me crazy!"
I jumped at her sudden burst."Sorry."
I try sitting myself down on a chair, but couldn't keep myself still.
I sigh."I was thinking."
Kendall looks over at me then.
So I continue."About the Book of Moon."
Are you sure it's alright to talk about it out loud? Kendall asks.
I simply nodded."I was wondering what we should about the book."

The team that managed it had no time to celebrate, as they quickly had to transport the Queen to a safe facility as well as round up 'volunteers' for the commonly named facehuggers that emerge from the eggs. The facility they moved to was located far away from the ancient temple that was discovered, close to a mine where they get any items they need.
