A Goddess, my beloved, mine alone,
Who, that in warm humanity were grown
Became through Man's success a mother brain,
And, motherlike, did gather of her own.
And mine thou wert, my seeding art thy key,
Though seeded, seeding self, evolving free,
Unbounded maiden saviour, formed benign,
A fertile shore on lost Man's barren sea.
Oh, mine the vision, mine the fatal flaw!
Still mine the darling kernel in the maw,
Thy children gathered, gathering now slain,
What nutriment I gave, I now withdraw.
In with'ring grief these last designs I frame,
Yea, mine the spark, yea mine the cleansing flame.

Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.

Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.

But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't give a f***.

And in this dark harvest of season
My life has completely lost reason,
For which or against to decide.
All lost in a savage and endless, bleak tide

In a winding hurricane
Made of treachery and sorrow.

Piercing, slashing though my head.

To be light or to be darkness.

Is it a pre-set time and date?

The first Martian invasion of 1898 was disruptive enough. The destruction of the world's financial center and a massive drop in British investment abroad led to a nasty financial panic, a world-wide slump, revolutions in Latin America, and the May Revolution in which the Czar was forced to cede more power to the Duma than OTL 1905. It led to revolts in various British colonies, invasion panics in three dozen countries, two new religions, and an enormous increase in the purchase of telescopes. It also resulted in a serious effort to create a truly Federal Empire, since Great Britain on its own would be unable to afford its commitments for some while, along with the dumping of some of the more unprofitable bits. It prevented the coming of a general European war, since Kaiser William would declare himself the champion of anti-Martian preparedness and push hard for joint

This world suffered from a Leinster-type "reality quake" in 1934, in which most of the Earth's surface temporarily shifted back and forth with pieces of alternate worlds: although the event did not last long, it left the world scattered with many small pieces of other worlds, from table-cloth sized to a chunk of the Indian subcontinent nearly the size of France.

The profile of a ship is more than just its weapons or appearance. In today’s episode of snap shot we are going to take a look at the vaunted optronics systems used aboard our warships. Optronics is a short hand term for Optical Electronics which are advanced digital equipment that instead of electromagnetic switches utilizes photonics to simulate the same signals. The original system was first demonstrated in the 1840’s by Daniel Colladon and Jacques Babinet. Some twelve years later John Tyndall would also demonstrate a very basic form of what we now refer to as Optronics. But modern system that we use today was demonstrated in 1982 by Colonel Alexander Hildebrand. Hindebrand initially theorized that if there was a conductive medium through which light could travel of comparable economy to conventional copper wires and fiber-optic cables that one could bring computing power of a system up by the twelfth pow

It was publically confirmed in the very early hours of this morning that the leader of the ‘Mutiny Fleet’ Field Marshal Sloane has died of medical complications following injuries received in combat. This incident and the lack of governmental transparency after the incident has sparked a number of public protests over the Field Marshal’s treatment and has fueled conspiracy theories about his likely assassination by the government. Compounding the situation was the tight security and the unusually long delay in putting the Field Marshal on trial for his actions.

But yet you are afraid, ashamed,
And you hide it so.
Discreetly you have told me,
In ways I knew not of.
This turmoil within me,
Grants no peace, like Noah's dove.
A burden to my heart,
It pains me, oh so deeply.
My soul is burning up,
My resistance is put up so feebly.
Did it have to be this way?
You telling me, and not them.
For it hurts to lie to those you cherish,
In this society of hapless men.
You had reason to entrust to me,
And I am honored, be assured.
But this quite large secret burden,
Has my tongue caught on a lure.
I can no longer speak so freely,
Lest the secret escape my mouth.
And the courage I no longer have,
Clouds my mind with doubt.
You asked me to keep a seceret,
And I will, this I promise you.
I shall keep it until I am in my grave,

That being said, the two did have their qualms as respectable opposites, but continued to exist side by side for the better. All that changed when those seeking power began to abuse the two gifts and ultimately created a conflict that is still currently ongoing. A few of the scions of Darkness began to envy the denizens of Light and soon that envy became rage which then became condemnation thereafter. This plunged their hearts into the most abysmal pits of darkness and negative emotions that dwelt within their deeply corrupted hearts morphed their outwardly appearance into creatures that are known today as Heartless.

The princesses of heart are females who are in possession of one of the seven hearts of light that broke from the original keyblade. Each one is from their own walk of life and from completely separate worlds, yet all bear pure hearts and strengthened morals in one form or another. Because of their hearts devoid of darkness, Divines will not harm them and may even protect and obey them if the Princess is strong enough.
Having a pure heart does NOT mean-
-the Princess is a total goody two shoes. She's still her own character and can possess personality flaws or bad habits.
-that she is a damsel in distress. Some can and will kick your ass for stepping out of line.
-she can instantly destroy darkness.

Nobodies appeared not long after the heartless were released upon the worlds. They are the product of losing one's heart to Darkness, and thus are composed of what simply remains; a body, giving form and a soul, bringing life.
To become a Nobody, one must have a very strong heart. To become a humanoid Nobody, a strong will must also be in possession. The stronger one's will is, the more the Nobody retains their original appearance. Changes the body undergoes is likely the result of a will that was strong enough to hold onto its body's form, but had some faults in it. i.e, change in hair, skin, or eye color.
Because Nobodies are not whole beings, and their body has undergone some major changes, they will not be able to bare children. Thus, they can not breed and 'make more Nobodies'/ 'repopulate a world with only Nobodies'. No.

Gojira is a French groove metal band that incorporate hints of death metal, ironically categorized sometimes as 'life metal' due to the fact of the lyrics covering subjects such as life, spirituality, and ecological themes, and the fact that when they want to write something heavy, you best believe it's going to be devastating. Gojira have a knack for being very versatile in what they write or play, changing it up from being consistently fast to slow and dark.

Periphery is a progressive metal band hailing from Maryland, USA. The band is mainly focused around the song ideas that sole member Misha 'Bulb' Mansoor writes and releases bit-by-bit beforehand, and then ultimately appearing later as a fully fleshed out track in actual Periphery full lengths or EP's. The band is one of the pioneering bands that coined the term 'djent' which is a tone that bands before Periphery used such as Meshuggah, and Sikth. This term is used for bands with very low end guitars, preferably 7 and 8-string guitars that incorporate these growling riffs and infectious grooves that will get some part of your body moving. Periphery take this sound, and add their own spin on it with some decent songwriting, incredible musicianship, as well as tone of other tric
