Chapter 1: You've Got A Friend In Me
Our story begins in a room, a typical average children's room to be exact. Here, the room had plenty of boxes on the ground. All these boxes had drawings on them, making them looking like buildings. Near the boxes was a young yellow-skinned boy with spiky hair. He was wearing a red shirt, blue shorts and blue and white shoes. His name is Bart Simpson. At the moment, he was holding a toy that looked like a green-feathered duck with an orange bill and orange webbed feet. The duck was wearing a sleeveless white shirt. His name is Plucky Duck. At this moment, he was holding a toy gun.
"Raise your hands! It's a hold-up!" said Bart as Plucky. "None of you move or I'll shoot!"
Some other toys of all kind were standing on the ground, not moving at all. Soon, the ye

Chapter 23: The Ancient Ministers Real Identity
Lets go back to see Kim and Bloo. Right now, they were running in a corridor while the alarm was heard. They had no doubt that some robots would appear at any moment to try to stop them.
I told you not to put your face into that security camera! said Kim to the blob, glaring at him.
What? I was sure I was gonna appear in a TV show! answered Bloo.
The basic average girl and the blue blob ran soon into a bunch of futuristic robots. Kim used a grappling hook and used it to swing herself around and hit some robots. She used her agility to dodge shots coming from these mechanical baddies. Bloo used his paddleball against the robots, and it surprisingly worked. After beating some of them, they noticed an Assist Trophy appearing. K

Back in the movie, the Looney Tunes were back on the road with their car. They were still driving towards Hollywood, coming across some beautiful landscapes.
Daffy: Oh, beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains' majesties
Above the fruited plain!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
The duck sighed proudly when he was done singing.
"There is patriotism in every American duck!" Daffy said. The duck then turned around, seeing the Martians sitting on the backseat. Rita and Runt were on the backseat too. The cat was actually sitting on Runt's head. "Could you please remind me why these two are coming with us?" He asked to Bugs.
"They said they always wanted to go to Hollywood too, so I figured it might be nice to have them join us." The rabbit r

The next day, Hinata was on TV, talking with another reporter. It was a Korean-American woman named Linda Park. The dark blue-haired woman was telling what happened to her in the subway the other day.
"Honestly, Hinata, this sounds less like your average subway mugging." Linda said to her.
"Pretty much, Linda." Hinata replied.
At the same time, in the young woman's apartment, the Mobians were watching her on her TV.
"Man, she's great as a reporter." Sonic said.
"She's such a pretty gal too!" Charmy eagerly said.
"They are known as the Hidden Sound Clan." Hinata continued on TV.
"The Hidden Sound Clan?" Linda asked. "That's a strange name."

Our story begins in one of the most famous places in the U.S.A.: New York City. It was a typical day in the Big Apple. Streets were crowded, with people going to whatever places they needed to go.
At some point in one street, some teenager discreetly grabbed a wallet from someone's pocket. That someone didn't notice it at all. While walking among the citizens of New York, the teenager discreetly gave the wallet to another teenager. That teenager did the same thing with a third teenager, and so on and so forth.

"Good news, Mario. We're close to your house, so you should be home soon enough." said the hedgehog.
Unfortunately, Mario was more worried about the fact they were gonna enter the house of the most dangerous teenager he came across.
"Chao, chao! Chao!" said the Chao, excited to enter a new house.
"Oh, don't you see we're-a doomed? Because-a we are!" exclaimed Mario to the other toys.
"Oh, come on, plumber! It can't be as bad as you think it is." said the hedgehog.
Vicky opened the door, revealing Doidle. The dog was loudly barking at the bag.

Some hours later, the Looney Tunes finally arrived in Hollywood. They were excited as the McKimson Mayhem bus was making his way through the city. They were able to see the famous Hollywood letters.
"Look at the ocean! It's so great!" Daffy commented when they came near a beach.
Some minutes later, they came across an observatory and stopped right next to it. Marvin and Tyr'ahnee were amazed when they noticed it.
"Is that " Marvin began to say.
"Yep, Marv. That's the observatory I was talkin' about earlier." Bugs replied. "If I recall, you and Tyr'ahnee wanted to have a good view of Venus."
"Thank you for remembering that. We are grateful for that." The female Martian said.
Marvin and his Queen were about to stand up and leave the bus. Before they could do that, they suddenly stopped and looked at each other. The other Looney Tunes next to them weren't sure what was going on.

Fizzucker: Your ideas for Maria Hill, Mr. Sinister and Jim Morita might work. I'll probably wait to see the Avengers movie before deciding on the Maria Hill role. As for your DC fanmakes, here's one thing you shouldn't forget: DON'T use MY heroes. By that, I mean don't use Mario as Superman, don't use Sonic as Batman, don't use Mulan as Wonder Woman and don't use Sasuke as John Stewart. Use Danny Phantom as Superman, Darkwing Duck as Batman, Sailor Moon as Wonder Woman and either Ben Tennyson or Jake Long as John Stewart.
MWolfL: Yeah, I like "Ned's Newt". There are some stuff I don't like in this show, like how some characters can act like a bunch of morons at times, or when the colors used in the animation in later episodes became a darker tone even in daylight, but I still like this show. Newton is an obvious rip-off of Genie from "Aladdin", but he's a good rip-off. Yeah, a good rip-off. Odd to say, isn't it? As for SpongeBob and Patrick, no, they won't show
The Looney Tune Movie 09Before we get to the next chapter, I have to answer Fizzucker's review. I might accept Aku as the Shadow King. Some of the choices for Apocalypse might be okay, though I don't see Orochimaru, K. Rool or Doomsday as that character. None of your ideas for Molten Man works. Gemlin? Who the heck is Gemlin? For Black Panther, don't suggest Shadow. He's already cast as a Daredevil character. When you suggest a character that's already cast, at least find someone else that might replace that character in his previous role. Danny and Zuko might work, though. I'm not too sure about the T-Rex as Fin Fang Foom. As for the Pyscho Rangers Sorry, but I've stopped watching "Power Rangers" years before "Power Rangers in Space" was made and I only mostly remember "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers". And even then, I'm just a VERY small casual fan of that franchise.The Looney Tune Movie 09 in General Fiction More Like This

True painThis pain is realTrue pain in Free Verse More Like This
This pain is true
And can only be caused by you
My eyes burn
These tears fall
Like me they miss the hand to wipe them away
This darkness heals
This blackness calms
Neither can erase this sadness
The pain thrives
But my love survives
Memories of you haunt me in my mind
This silence is screaming
This darkness becomes blinding
The reality of what I need and want blurs
My shouts are silent
Your ears deaf
And my pain numb
I let you kill me
yet I've never been so alive
In my weakness I still need you
You make my darkness light
You make this pain feel alright
You take away all the bad
So I'll take you back
And shove you away
Loving you is worth the pain

A butterfly in a box
A bird in a cage
You've trapped me
You've kept me from my sky
I can spread my wings
But because you I'll never fly
I'll never know that freedom
You clipped my wings
Made me weak
You've made me need you
Taught me never bite the hand that feed
You've made me suffer
Watch the world from my cage
Envy the birds out in the sky
I've come to hate you
Now I question
Now I ponder
Should these bars break
And freedom I take
Would I come back to you
Am I that broken
Would I foolishly give you my trust
Or would I take to sky and surpass what you thought of me?
For now you've clipped my wings
And grounded me
But one day I'll take to the sky
And you'll have to watch me fly
I guess we'll wait for that day
For Your hands open
The box to be eaten away
The metal bars to rust
The choice will be mine
You'll finally question if it was all about you
Or will I take to the sky
And for once follow my heart and take what I want

Lisa was both shuddering and surprised. Not only was she afraid of pigeons, she was also surprised to see them so far off coast. It wasn't even the traveling season yet.
"That's odd", Lisa thought out loud. "Pigeons don't usually fly so far out sea. Something funny is going on."

I was in so much trouble... I had ventured carelessly into a giant's territory- a large open field, filled with wildflowers. Of course, my safe haven happened to be a hell hole.
I whimpered helplessly as the warm flesh around me tightened.
"Shhhhh," he murmured softly, "Shhhhh..."
Despite his gentle words, I was still terrified. Was this giant planning on devouring me? Or planning to keep mr captive? These thoughts raced through my petrified mind- the overlapping thoughts made my stomach churn with absolute fear.
He had me trapped in his cupped hands. I had not even seen his face- I only had heard his deep voice, and felt his warm sweaty skin, and smelled his wine scented breath.
I was unarmed, wearing only my kitchen clothes... I felt exposed and utterly helpless in the giant's hands... The skin beneath my fingers was rough, I felt hundreds of callouses and a few scars as I attempted to stretch my weak arms.

The tiny voice was like a random spark in Zane’s sensitive ears. He blinked rapidly and looked around his step dad’s small apartment kitchen.
The lights were dim- nothing on the granite counter except for the morning newspaper and some old mail.
Zane bit his lip- he could feel the newborn facial hairs prickle his saliva-coated tongue.
He lowered his clenched fist to his side, and stuffed the two deathly pills in his sweatshirt pocket.
“Whose there?” he snarled.
There was absolute silence.
Zane shook his head angrily- “It’s just in your head,” he told himself angrily. He looked suspiciously towards the back door, expecting to see someone dart away from the window.
No one was there.
With a heavy sigh, Zane decided to go upstairs… It would be more secretive this way- not as dramatic… Not that he cared or anything.
As he moved towards the stairs to his room- something scurried past his foot- but it

He finally had a chance to be by himself- the humans didn’t come near this part of the country. So he was safe from any interrupting yells of fright or disgust. He took a deep breath of the fresh air, then shut his eyes sleepily. A short nap was all he wished for…
Five year old Kelly had seen this giant more than once. He was enormous- he seemed bigger than the first time she had seen him! She could see his gargantuan body lying in the emerald green meadow. He appeared to be sleeping…
It was Kelly’s chance! She looked down at her school backpack and took out her pair of binoculars. She peered through them, zooming in onto the giant’s face. His eyelids were shut, and his great mouth was open slightly.
He was definitely asleep.
Kelly was beyond excited . She could approach him easily now… She clapped her hands

Karl groaned sleepily and forced his heavy eyelids to open. The dark cloak of night made Karl want to shut his eyes once more- but the child's voice was unmistakably persistent.
"Please, sir! I need- I need help!" the owner of the voice sounded desperate.. But Karl had absolutely no enthusiasm, no motivation whatsoever to look at the tiny being beside his ear..
"Human," he groaned softly. "Can't you let a poor fellow sleep?"
Karl gasped as something soft touched the his ear tip. He sucked in a deep breath of air as the soft feeling traveled into his hair... He could feel tiny little hands, grabbing at his long strands of black hair, and he could feel the minuscule feet pressing into his scalp.
His instinct told him to stay still, his mind fold him to go back go sleep... The boy would grow tired of this silly game and leave Karl alone. Right?
Suddenly Karl felt a sharp pinch- be groaned angrily and bared his teeth, forcing himself not to snarl like

My blond hair fell to my shoulders; it was straight again this morning, like every day. The dull blue eyes that stared from beneath my too long fringe were rimmed with dark eyeliner and mascara. The black eye make-up made me feel safe, hiding my fragility.
I was clad in black trousers and a white shirt, I looked smart, like always. Glancing in the mirror I sighed, and turned away. I grabbed my school bag and swimming kit and stalked out of my room.
School, lessons, skipped lunch again, lessons, and the gnawing hunger…
In the afternoon I had swim training. Finally something that would let me feel good, I thought to myself. I got into the pool working my way through the series of exercises. The burn in my muscles was satisfying and my mind seemed clear.
I walked home in silence, the music flowing from my earphones. The people were staring at me as I walked past.

And I am not saying I will.
But IF I do, I promise you
Each man will get his fill.
I will ride to battle upon a steed
A mount of frozen star light.
Flanked by my knights, ten of them
Five on either side, they stand brave in the night.
I'll bare upon my head a helm
Forged from the sun's own rays.
And my knights will wear cloaks of gold,
As they guard against the what in the dark lays.
But enough about such superficial things
Because, when I go to war,
I want to stand beside all thee
Else, what am I fighting for!
I believe I mentioned once before
My knights, I claimed what? Ten?
In golden cloaks, fighting the dark
This be a tribute to them.

Well, she be my truest friend
A bond of blood binds her to me
Together we fight and defend.
The three girls to my left,
The sweetest beings on earth
But strong as steel when faced with fire
In battle each showing their worth.
Yet another of my knights is a girl
Well, honestly, make that two.

I built them so high.
Each brick was of ice
To burn you with lies.
But you scaled my walls...
I dug myself a mote
I dug it so deep.
And I filled it with acid
It lay innocent and placid.
But you swam across...
I buried myself in ashes
A grave six feet deep.
The space lined with stone
Under the ground oh, so lone.
But you dug all the way down...
I strengthened my skin
I strengthened it in fire.
Until it was thicker than hide
Protecting me, trapped inside.
Nothing could stop you
Not any walls...
Not my mote...
Not my grave...
And now you are under my skin
My three miracles
Yes I still have walls
I still have a mote
I still lie burried in ashes
My skin still tough as hide
But you are under my skin
You are within my heart

I had personally never understood the appeal of finding something so much larger than you attractive, but perhaps it was different for women. But now, it wasn't a romantic attraction that brought her to my attention every day. Despite her young features and almost childlike facial expressions, I could tell she was an older woman. Perhaps in her mid to late twenties. It wasn't as though she were painful to look at, it was just I never thought about her that way. Besides, it wasn't as though I wasn't dating. Plus, thought she stayed at home quite often, I had seen her with a few male visitors.A Symphony of Words in Short Stories More Like This

"Why do you ask?"
"It's just you kind of shuddered or something?"
"I'm allowed to shudder Arrietty. It's not like I need your permission," Spiller said harshly with a smile on his usually stoic face. He wasn't sure what was happening but suddenly he felt uneasy. He couldn't quite understand the feeling to Arrietty and he didn't want her to worry. "Maybe your bean is coming home," he tried, hoping that she would change the subject.

"You're putting together quite a collection of sweets aren't you Ella?" Gus said, as he walked past my room under the stairs, arms full of flour and sugar. Apparently my stepmother wanted to make a cake to celebrate the invitation to the prince's upcoming ball. Not every maid or maiden was invited but apparently Anya and Drey had put on quite a show at the 'audition' to be invited. She read the letter proudly, making sure to mention that it was for Anya and Drey and certainly not some 'Trow child' who was taking up residence in their home.
I rolled my eyes, trying not to think of the memory but rather focusing on the fact that I was going to head to the village with Drey in a little while to pick up the missing ingredients for the cake. I smiled proudly and looked at my collection of treats that I had set in an empty mug. It did kind of look like a bouquet in a jar, but instead of flowers, this one was filled with peppermint stick

I remember when I was younger I used to think it was cool that I was adopted into a family of giants after my parents passed. They were a good family and it was a time in history when giants and humans were finally starting to co-exist. There were still plenty of segregated areas across the country but where I was going was not one of them. I was ten when I was adopted and at first – it was the coolest thing. I had a giant father, who could scoop me up with one hand and a mother who could literally drape me across her lap when I was feeling blue. I even had a little sister – only two years younger than me who I loved to play with. I didn’t mind being the ‘doll’ in her games because she was always old enough to know to be gentle. Sarah was important to me and even though I’m barely the size of one of her hands now, I wanted to protect her.
But at seventeen…those feelings were

"Can't we talk about this?"
As I sat facing the advancing swordsmen, I knew it was going to be one of those days. A dozen surly, unshaven faces glowered at me, each man hoisting a rough-hewn weapon in compensation for obvious shortcomings. Couldn't they give me a moment's peace? Once, just once, I'd like to make it through the day without dealing with some angry, delusional ball of machismo who thinks a hunk of metal makes him a warrior.
What have I done to deserve this? I mean, I'm a fairly nice person, usually even-tempered. I try not to bother anyone. I don't think I'm particularly ugly or monstrous. Skinny frame, decent looks, straight black hair. A bit heavier in the chest region than I'd like but the boys back home certainly never complained. Not at all unpleasant-looking, I'm told. I'm not even that tall for my age, just over four and a half grynocs.
Of course, four and a half grynocs is about a hundred of your human feet. And therein lies the rub.

By Eric Lindberg
The Legend: In the days of good King Arthur, the magician Merlin summoned to Britain a collection of the smallest individuals known to man. These he offered to the king as spies, a secret network of miniature heroes undertaking missions against the Round Table's enemies. Merlin called this strange menagerie the League of Homunculi.
And this is how they came to be.
* * * * *
Sir Thomas Thumb sat in the palm of the queen's hand. At three inches tall, he was by far the most unusual of the fabled Knights of the Round Table, defenders of the kingdom of Britain. Boyishly handsome (if one could see him in detail), Tom wore a tiny hand-stitched tunic, a doublet of thistledown, apple-rind stockings, mouse-pelt boots, and a small feathered cap worn at a rakish angle. At his side was a sewing needle that served as his sword. He was the very image of a noble knight, yet one cast in miniature, no bigger than a human

A cool breeze licked the treetops and a full moon shone upon the peaceful village. In the distance, the lilting melody of a fiddler serenaded the night. Candlelight flickered and wine flowed freely as we feasted on the sumptuous meal before us. All in all, it was a perfect romantic evening in the village of Appleton.
Well, all right, not perfect perhaps. Romance tends to be a bit complicated when one is four and a half grynocs tall (that's a hundred feet to you, by the by). But we managed as best we could.
I see some puzzled glances in the audience (I think I see them anyway. Your damn faces are so tiny! Seriously, I'm going to strain my eyes squinting like this all the time). Some of you know me but it could be that others haven't had the pleasure. If that's the case then introductions are in order:

The Eye of Ymir
By Eric Lindberg
The young Earthborn woman stalked through the barren hills. She was weary and alone and more hungry than she had ever been. Out here in the wastes, there were no gargantua, the giant-sized beasts raised as livestock by her people, so she had not had a decent meal in some time. The trolls had encampments in this part of the mountains but she was sick of the taste of troll. She had to content herself with plants and fruits and the strange, miniature animals that wandered in from the human kingdom to the south.
The human kingdom. Now that would be a feast indeed if she could find the way. Though the "Little People" were no more filling or nutritious than their tiny livestock, they were so much more satisfying. It gave the giant girl a thrill to hunt beings so similar to herself, to devour creatures of near-Earthborn intelligence. Oh, how she loved their tiny screams and pleas for mercy, their fruitless squirming as she swallowed them d
