with ardent and sincere verse
to maketh thee immortal,
as immortal as Heaven's constellations coruscate.
Born amidst December clutch,
I was Winter's foulest bloom.
And though you of Pisces wrought,
were truly Summer's child.
Firmly rooted in compacted snow,
I thrived most on hate of self
forgetting that to be loved at all
requires chiefly pride.
Yet your Apollonian rays
did warm me in good time,
turning hardened petals to
earnest, churning seas of skin.
And then I bled from unstitched wounds,
fearfully, with tear-drunk smiles:
more alive, at last, than dead.
Stardust on my virgin cheeks
from the contact of a god,
I rose servile hands on up
toward firmamental eyes.
and with freedom they so shone;
in that moment I then knew
they would be my prize, my reverential fight.
"O hear me now, thou most tender,
thou most High: one day very soon
I shall surely make you mine.
Yes, I can see quite clear,

At the center of Tao village was a beautiful fountain of stone. What the pokemon inhabitants didn't know that under the fountain there was a secret base that belonged to two dirty mouthed magikarps. Their names where Boris and Norman; their hobbies involved flopping all over the place and frustrating their caretaker and roommate Cabbage the Sandshrew. Tonight Boris was home alone watching the game with a beer in hand (well fin), as his boyfriend Yuki the Vanillite made snow cones in the kitchen.
"Hey Bowis dear " Yuki said as he approached the fish carrying a tray of snow cones. "Do you want some of Yuki's speshul snowcones?"
"No bitch " Boris said taking a gulp of beer. "Now piss off, I'm watching the game "
Yuki's hands trembled angrily as he placed the tray of snow cones while trying to maintain his temper. Ever since they eloped, Boris has been nothing but mean. All of a sudden, the Vanillite got an idea

I wiped my sweaty palms on my pants-leg. After the ill-fated Deep Roads expedition, I'd bought the Hawke estate and left my companions to their own devices for a few weeks, but I'd needed backup to go prowling in Lowtown after dark. Isabela came along, and it seemed that with her memory jolted the beautiful pirate wanted more.
"So this is where you live. Not bad," Isabela conceded, surveying the old manor. "I preferred the old place. It had... more charm."
I shook her head, wondering how Isabela's voice could be sultry and syrupy at the same time. It might have been the Rivain accent.
"You're talking about the shack I shared with my mother, uncle, and sister," I said disbelievingly

I really need to stay away from Youtube.
I was surfing the site the other night, and I came across Miranda's romance scenes, and with one watch, I was hooked.
I've always found Miranda to be an interesting character, seeing her go from a cold Cerberus loyalist, seeing her being a caring big sister and her doubts about herself, to eventually resigning from Cerberus when The Illusive Man wants Shepard to keep the Collector base.
So The Miranda Chronicles were born.
The same deal as the other two series applies here, only the main couple is my other main male Shepard, Xavier and his XO.
I'll distinguish these spin-off stories with 'TMC' in front of the story title.
I hope you guys enjoy these stories as much as yo

Part One: Your Syntax Has Been Eaten A Grue
The term 'syntax' pertains to the rules of grammar and sentence construction in any given language.
I'm starting this series with a discussion of problematic syntax because passively constructed sentences and/or wrenched and unnatural sentence structure are the number one signpost which will identify a writer as having spent a lot of time in the RP world.
Wrenched or passive syntax is also the number one 'crime against fiction' committed by the average roleplayer while attempting to cross over into fiction writing.
I'll now explain the difference between the active and passive "voice" in sentences, and why active sentences are far more desirable in fiction.
An active sentence makes the subject of a sentence the focus of action. A passive sentence focuses instead on the verbs,

"Shepard, incoming transmission for you in the comm. room. The signature is not Cerberus or council." EDI said.
"Do you know who it is?" Shepard asked swinging his legs off the bed.
"The signature is that of the Alliances Operator Chief Ashley Williams"
"What?" Shepard asked in surprise "You must be mistaken"
"I am rarely wrong Shepard" EDI replied and Shepard sighed. He dressed quickly and looked at Miranda. If Ash wanted to pick up where they left off she would be disappointed. He wanted to take Miranda with him but decided against it, she didn't need any unnecessary stress at the moment. He stepped into the elevator and took it down to CIC.
"Good morning Commander" Kelly smiled from her panel.
"Morning Kelly" Shepard said stifling a yawn. "If anyone asks where I am, tell them I'm in the comm. room."

The dark had always scared Miranda. Not being able to see, it was the unknown that scared her when she was trapped in the dark. She always had a plan, she knew what she wanted and how to get it, the unknown scared her. She planned everything, analyzed everything. Yet for the first time in her life she had done something she had never expected to happen. She had fallen in love. She had fallen for Commander John Shepard, Savoir of the Citadel, Hero of Humanity. He was the most selfless, caring man she had ever met and she loved him but it scared her.
She had never been loved by anyone before or loved another. She had always been alone, isolated, careful to never get too close to people. She had never opened up to anyone, yet here she lay, staring at the ceiling of a room that most defiantly was not her own. It was Shepard's. She had spent all her n

Such a delicious looking apple
She could smell the sweet fragrance from the short distance.
her small white hand cupped the bright red fruit.
Just one bite...
her ebony hair fell into her face
as she stared at her reflection in its shiny skin
Snow was quite hungry.
Just one bite...
her innocents blinds her
Trust is still very easy
for who would want to hurt one so fair?
Just one bite...
She takes a bite of the apple
the sticky juices drip from her lips
her red, red lips
Just one bite...
her vision becomes blurry
she feels faint, swaying almost
dizzily the room spins beneath her feet.
Just one bite...
her pale hand grasps the little chair
but she still tumbles downward
unconscious before she hits the floor
Just one bite...
her black hair splayed out
the apple rolls from her loosened grasp
Snow White's dark eye staring,yet unseeing.
Just one bite...
now eternal sleep
once so fair
now death will keep her.
Just one bite...

I love you so deeply,
I love you so much,
I love the sound of your voice
And the way that we touch.
I love your warm smile
and your kind, thoughtful way,
the joy that you bring
to my life every day.
I love you today
as I have from the start,
and I'll love you forever
with all of my heart
When I'm with you,
eternity is a step away;
my love continues to grow,
with each passing day.
This treasure of love,
I cherish within my soul,
how much I love you,
you'll never really know.
You bring a joy to my heart,
I've never felt before,
with each touch of your heart,
I love you more and more.
Whenever we say goodbye,
whenever we part,
know I hold you dearly,
deep inside my heart.
So these seven words,
I pray you hold true,
"Forever and Always,
I will Love You."

They know how emotional humans get

What suckers they are for feeding the birds,
an act of love when they can give no love to others
The crows settle in apartment block parking lots
the way seagulls gather in shopping strips
next to fast food joints
or hover and flap in masses
on the scrapheaps of garbage scows

I, the sheltered child who started to tragically fall from your grace
Into the void of this sudden loneliness
Realizing I followed every single one of your steps
But yet, I failed to hold onto those uplifting moments
Now I feel as if maybe I had forced you to make every one of those promises
That which you still kept
So I don't want to sound dishonest, but out of us, you are the strongest
You make sure to protect
To you, everyone, and everything is dearest
None left to neglect
But with all of that, you take on those heavy burdens
And try your best
Calling out your name into the nothingness
Forgetting about the peace you bestowed upon me
I guess it's just too hard to be away from

to know anything of strategy or warfare.
We are the ones who never start fights,
But are quite willing to end them if need be.
We are not the trouble-makers in life,
But neither are we the straight-A students.
Some of us toe the line on issues more than others,
But for the most part, we blend in.
For all our camouflaging ways, however,
We are the ones who stand alone
Against the struggles of everyday life.
Some of us neither want, nor need, anyone to stand beside us.
We have our philosophies to keep us warm at night,
Our creeds to sing us to sleep.
Our weapons are our teddy-bears,
And our katas lead us to dream.

Draw scripture in the dirt with your finger.
I'll run your arm too, and read your words.
We came all the way to Zion because we're Mormons
in heat, scratching at air.
We need to feel like being alive, is the thing; like living,
like red dust in the rock layers burnt archaic deep,
like corn fields growing under rocks and sand.
I want to do all the things that trees do in the facility
of lapping bands of heat.
Let's be tree folk,
Let's list our dreams in canvas and carrion.
Let's let budding plants forget the sympathy of water.
Let's sing songs of salt in the old shallow sea basins
and pound the erosion back with our fists.
Let's climb the sunlight until the stink of our nights
concerns only the wind brushing pine into stalled 4x4s.
It's Zion and the summer is brush fires
of people with prayers. Let's tell the park ranger
we're doing our part and burning
everything we know.

The Black Legion, PreviewTHE BLACK LEGION.The Black Legion, Preview5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Long ago. This was during a time when Emperors were considered new. Secret organizations were completely unheard of. But someone had to fight against the damned ones, known only as the Vampires. Or something. Some would consider the black legion beyond human ability. Beyond this world. In all truth they were built of men and women that were kidnapped as babies. Only the strongest and healthiest babies were taken from there homes. Then until their sixteenth birthdays, they were not just trained, they were broken. They were twisted and pulled and pushed down until no emotion remained. Only duty. If they were to defeat the emotionless, they had to be emotionless.
Fast Forward 2000 years.
Vampires still exist, as do their counterparts, the black legion. They both hide in shadow and in secrecy, and fight their secret battles during the night. Obviously the black legion have developed new ways of destroying the damned, as have the vampires discovered new ways of running.
