El pasado puente fui dar una vuelta por el Louvre. Encontré un billete de avión casi regalado en Internet, de Biarritz a París. Biarritz no está lejos de mi casa y hacía tiempo que no respiraba aire cultural con mayúsculas.
París... Un café, la nieve... ¡De postal! París es magnífica con un manto blanco y su atmósfera es, si cabe, más evocadora con ello. Todos debemos respirar París al menos una vez.
Aunque yo tenía prisa, disfrutar del Louvre exige su tiempo y sólo disponía de tres días. Quería volver a gozar de los viejos maestros, visitar las salas siempre sorprendentes de Egipto y, además, con la remodelación del Centro Pompidou, habían habilitado un edificio para arte moderno y varias exposiciones de jóvenes artistas estaban entusiasmando a crítica y público, según había visto
'What's that?''What's that?'9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
On a normal, Saturday afternoon - the kind where there's nothing to do, nowhere to go, and no one to visit - two boys ran around, fighting one another with water guns. It was hard to tell one boy from the other, as they were both identical in appearance and both equally soaked through from their water battle. Their bangs hung wetly over their eyes and their red shirts clung to their young chests, but neither seemed to mind as they waged their watery war.
"Take that!" One said, peeking out from behind a bush and squirting the other boy in the chest.
The other one paused and caught himself for a moment, turning to shoot back but missing. "I'm going to get you for that one!" They continued chasing after one another for a while longer, until one decided to climb up the nailed ladder on a tree trunk that led to a small house nestled farther up the tree. As soon as he got up there, however, the other one, still on the ground, shot a stream of water up into the small house.
"Oh no you don't!"

Aurana is a white shapeshifting dragoness with 3 fins that run along her neck, starting from the top of her head and stopping before the shoulderblades and 3 hard blades on the end of her tail. She is a shapeshifter by species, but she prefers staying in her feral (quadrupedal) form or her hatchling form (mostly because she loves the simple carefree mind it has, but it also gets scared really easily).

Damn kids. They're all alike.
But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?

"Sam, I need to talk you in private." Cas said appearing in front of Sam, Dean nodded in Cas' direction and walked on in to the bathroom.
"Okay." Sam responded kinda confused, hoping the angel hadn't found out about his crush.
Cas started to remove his trench coat and he says to Sam, "You're everything that I've been searching for."
"What? What are you talking about?" Sam said suddenly blushing.
Cas' voice deepens, "And there's no need for me to search no more."
He closes the distance and loosens his tie, slowly unbuttons his shirt.
Sam's face becomes a deeper shade of red as he thought, 'He may be an angel of the lord, but he has a body made for sinning.'
"Sam." Sam snaps out of his lustful thoughts about Cas and looks up at the angel only to see that he is now face to face with the angel and can feel the heat that is coming off him in waves strong enough to make Sam sweat.
Blue eyes captivate brown, and then close as Cas gently places his li

"Professor Sewell! Come quickly! You're not bloody going to believe this!"
Professor Elizabeth Sewell gave the intern a cross glare through her glasses. She was a middle-aged woman, with red hair just beginning to silver. She was not finicky about her appearance, yet she tried very hard to avoid the "stern librarian" appearance displayed by many of her colleagues. "Language, Mister Porter. If you wish to be a professional, you'll need to control that hasty tongue of yours."
"Right sorry," young Porter gasped obligatorily as he shoved aside both flaps that served as the door to her tent and beckoned her outside. He was a consummate portrayal of young adulthood: longish hair that constantly dangled over his brows, sloppily-shaven stubble, and lose, dirty clothes. Dark brown hair and eyes were the only color contrasting an otherwise pasty complexion. "But you must come see this! We've found something in the cave!"
Elizabeth sighed as she closed her archeology book, obviously in no hurry.

She shook her head violently, attempting to get their jeers out of her head.

All their mocking laughter filled her head. Jada wanted nothing more than to be free from those girl's abusive speech towards her and the control it had on her. Tears filled her eyes, as she began cutting her hair, handful by handful. Maybe he would love her if she looked beautiful, like all the others.
Why would she ever believe that someone like him could ever truly love her. Jeremy and her had been dating for six months and they loved each other - or so she thought. When he approached he an

little daggers of knives and jagged edges where my thoughts roam;
I thought I knew this ground.
It was a road or a path or a well-worn finger-brushed against you lips.
It was a kiss in the dark and a moment of heartache.
You took me somewhere beautiful,
where I didnt understand the sunlight or the way the breeze blew,
you took me somewhere beautiful,
and in the aftermath of beauty I lie awake at night,
uncertain of meaning.
You took me somewhere beautiful,
and my heart burns with it like a fire never to go out,
and if I could turn my face up to yours,
if I could smile at you and smile at you...
would you know?
I have misconceptions that course through my body,
fine veins of corruption in ignorance.
I have mistakes like thumb-tacks on my wall.
Like paper-napkins in the breeze.
I have love like flickering fireflies,
caught up and caught up and caught up.
But I dont die.
I have half a moment to ponder.

VirusI had decided to finish the recording now, since it was around midnight, when I decided to go online and check out what’s going on on YouTube. I saw something strange there, so I clicked where it says “ChaoticMonki”, just to make sure that the video that I saw was uploaded by him. The video wasn’t really called anything, just a bunch of squares to my computer. The thumbnail also wasn’t very descriptive.

Is he drunk again, and uploaded a weird 30 second video? I thought, as I clicked on it, slowly putting on my headphones.
No sound was playing, but the video automatically went to full screen, which I didn’t mind. The video bathed the dark room in a light blue. Just like in the thumbnail, it was full of dark lines, moving across the screen, mainly vertically. I checked to see how long there was left on the video, when my computer crashed. I hardly ever see the blue screen of death, especially with Windows 7.
Master Thread-WorkerIt was a simple way of falling,Master Thread-Worker8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
something so singularly focused and yet so vague,
those shadowed edges all caught up in silver moonlight.
It was simple and yet so very formless;
the boundaries were never clear and always shifting,
always changing and moving and spreading farther and farther.
From where I stand now I cannot see them,
they have passed on, to the horizon of my sight,
and though I stand on nothing,
for I am falling,
that infinity still draws my breath up sharp,
and I chase my fingers out into it;
this objectively placed idea,
this subjective moment of falling,
if just to know that cool empathy across my temples and palms.
It is a cliche caught up between the roof of my mouth and my tongue,
a sort of sweet swoon of drink that sparkles across the taste-buds,
brings a slight fire to the stomach and the head,
a rosy glow to the cheeks and another chink of glasses against each other.

perhaps you remember and perhaps you do not.
I broke it when I broke apart against the ocean cliffs,
a tide that runs back and forth.
Promise me you will never be inconsolable.
And I have become just that.
My emotions like a roller coaster gone astray,
plunging where you cannot see anymore.
You didnt know it ended in an abyss,
and I did not tell you till we had broken apart at the platform,
and here I am.
I could say, here, that I am sorry,
for I am.
I have never been more sorry
for anything else in my entire life.
But you do not want sorries.
I am trying to rise from the dust and ashes.
I am not a phoenix,
I am just a bird and broken wings.
And I know you can see me fall here,
and sometimes, though you say naught,
I wonder if I break your heart.
I am trying to fix that which I dont know how.
And you, you in your forever care,
are trying to help me.
And I have broken a promise I made long ago,
that which I should not have broken,

Chapter 4: Wish Fulfillment
I got up and looked at the small little dragon as it shook the remains of the shattered eggshell of itself. I backed up and stepped on an old dry leaf. The dragon instantly whipped around and faced me. Our eyes locked. I wanted to turn and run, but something in the way those eyes stared at me held me firmly in place. Without warning, the dragon leaped onto me with such force that I fell over backwards. To my amazement, it did not hurt me, but began licking my face all over. Once I was thoroughly covered in drool, it got off and let me up. Not knowing what to do, I just stood there looking at the dragon confused. It saw this, and its little head dropped, a look of sheer sadness upon its face.
You dont remember me, do you?

Alessandro thought it would all come too soon, and he was right. His phone's alarm seemed to be blasting at his face, immediately snapping his eyes open. He decided to spend a few seconds glaring at the clock on his bedstand. He seemed a bit happy at the fact it was Thursday, since he didn't go to work on Fridays. He began to stretch, but the wall next to his head refused to let him do so properly. Groaning, he rubbed the sleep from his eyes and sat up. As he moved out of his bed, he shut his phone's alarm off. And without that wall around, he could finally spare a few seconds for stretching.
He proceeded to head to the bathroom with a clean, new towel for his morning shower. Beginning a shower was always cruel to him, since it always started off with cold water. Luckily, it was able to arouse him from sleep mode. While soaping up his hair, he thought that today would be a good day. He has no idea why, o
