Look After YouI don't know why I had left that place I was forced to call home, maybe after all it was a stupid decision but I had no other choice unless I wanted the rest of my life to be melancholy. I couldn't stand to be in such a broken household even though on the outside we looked like your perfect suburban family but we were far from that to be entirely honest. I was never really sure who to blame for the unfortunate life style our family lived, it had all occurred as a chain of events if you look at it from another perspective. Our parents had been happily married, apparently although I had, had no memory of this my older sister Evanna would always tell me stories about them to help me drift off to sleep.Look After You in Emotional More Like This

Writing Prompt 53 - BloodThe first thing I saw was her crimson blood spread against the floor in a large patch around her body, small little droplets which looked like red raindrops rested a few centimetres from her body. Her body lay there, motionless and pale; her hair which had been a beautiful blonde colour was now mixed with the colour of her blood. It matted her hair down around most of her face. The girl's once lively blue eyes were now white and discoloured her eye lids were closed over her own eyes. I took a few steps closer towards my former best friend and examined her body, my body filled with fear. Her white sundress which she had taken such pride in a few weeks before about buying and wearing to our family picnic was stained with her dark blood, a large rip from the left breast of her dress down to her right hip was the only difference of the dress now, and it was one of fatal blows that had killed her. Another wound was coming from her head, the blood pooling around that desired spot.Writing Prompt 53 - Blood in Horror More Like This

Ambulance.The frantic wail of the ambulance cuts through the air, catching everybody's attention. The bright red and blue flashing lights accompanying the distressed siren as the large vehicle swerves its way through the bustling city traffic. The young blonde glances up from her seat beside the ambulance, the music in her ears suddenly drowned out by the continuous ambulance siren. A sickening feeling starts in her stomach, curious blue eyes watch as the vehicle drives off swiftly into the distance, taking with it the daunting situation. As the girl sits there, she can't help but wonder if another life will be taken again today.Ambulance. in Short Stories More Like This

Claire started off first, hitting the ball which flew extremely far. The other girls followed after Claire, copying exactly what she did flawlessly. I gulped suddenly realising it was my turn, taking a few deep breaths I stepped forward, ignoring the icy glare that Claire gave me.

A sharp kick in the side was Sarah's wake up call. She jumped and grunted in pain, looking around to see who had done it. Not surprisingly, Todd stood before her, arms akimbo, frowning down at her. "Let's move," he growled as he started to walk away.
Sarah scrambled to her feet before he got too much farther. She'd learned the hard way that the collar worked very well whether it was she who got too far away from him, or he who walked faster. She caught up just as he turned the corner around the hedge.
The previous day they'd walked for hours and hours, but despite Sarah's best efforts, she couldn't find the markers from her previous trip. Instead they'd dealt with an entirely new kind of labyrinth, a darker one. Besides the death of the foliage all around them, it was evident that the labyrinth had changed in other ways.

She sucked in a shaky breath as his cool gloved fingers slid down her arms and covered her hands. Electricity raced through her body leaving tingling sensations that all seemed to concentrate where he'd last touched. Leaning back, she could feel his lean frame immediately behind her. His arms and body had effectively created a tiny cave just perfect for her to shelter in. A light teasing tickle could be felt along her right cheek as he leaned down to whisper in her ear.

Jareth groaned as the pounding in his head intensified. He wished he could just go back to sleep to escape the pain, but the sweet numbing slumber evaded him. Hesitantly, he opened his eyes and tried to remember where he was. He was sitting on a cold wooden floor with his back propped up against the wall. The back of a sofa was in front of him and a short hallway stretched out to either side. He remembered then that this was Sarah's apartment. "Sarah " he breathed out.
He made to stand as he remembered that Todd had been there and had most likely taken Sarah, but his head pounded and his back ached to the point that movement threatened nausea.

Sarah felt a slight sense of annoyance as Jareth led her through the stone corridors of the castle beyond the Goblin City. He'd insisted on surprising her tonight and it was obvious that Hermaphroditus had been in on it, because the silver dragon had refused to say anything and was currently enjoying its bribe from Jareth for keeping its mouth shut; the bribe being an entire slow cooked pheasant. How the small dragon could eat that much, Sarah couldn't figure out, but she suspected it had something to do with the creature being magical.
"Nearly there, love," Jareth remarked as he pulled her along the drafty corridor. They'd been walking all over the castle and Sarah had long given up trying to figure out where they were going. She could feel a cool breeze along her face and arms suddenly and she figured they must have stepped out into one of the courtyards. Jareth stopped and she bumped into him before stopping herself.

Sarah hadn't really wanted to contemplate what 'or else' might have meant so she'd worked at a feverish pace folding jeans, tagging sweaters, and hanging jackets.

Welcome back to the SithVamp October SpecDracular! I love stop-motion animation. It’s a pity we hardly see any movies anymore in that style of animation. It’s a dying art. And when it comes to stop-motion animation, people can think of any of the following three things: Robot Chicken, Tim Burton or Rankin-Bass. Let’s talk about the latter today: Rankin-Bass Productions was a stop-motion animation studio founded by Arthur Rankin Jr. and Jules Bass. This studio is most well-known for its Christmas specials, like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and a Year Without Santa Claus, and the first Thundercats series. Most of Rankin-Bass’ Christmas specials were made in stop-motion animation, so was the movie I’m going to review today: it’s a Rankin-Bass Halloween, yes, you heard me: Halloween stop-motion special, simply known as: Mad Monster Party!!!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas, to give you some clues,
Was based on the book by one Dr. Seuss.
And, to make things even better, the director
Of this film is Chuck Jones, a Looney Tunes animator.
1966 was the year this movie was made,
A year, when an era of the Beatles began to fade.
The narrator, to make shivers run down your spine,
Is Boris Karloff, who played the Mummy and Frankenstein.
The movie starts with a group of people, whose
name is quite simple: they are the Whos.
We see them singing songs and decorating a tree,
they're preparing for Christmas with happiness and glee.
The Whos all feel joyous and happy,
There's only one person, who feels sour and crappy,
He watches it angrily, all this Holiday minge-binge,
It's the title character: known as the Grinch!

My Thoughts on SheZow and GrojbandMy Thoughts on SheZow and Grojband in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Well, in the past few months, I've been introduced to a couple of new cartoons that came out recently; cartoons such as SheZow and Grojband. Here are my thoughts on those shows:
Okay, I'll be honest: The first time I checked this show out, my first reaction was: "WTF???!!!" For a week or two I've been avoiding this show but then I said "Whatever, I'll give it a try..." So I watched a couple of episodes and I discovered it isn't that bad. SheZow is a pretty good superhero. This kid is like the Justice League all rolled into one: he’s got gadgets and a hideout like Batman, Sonic Scream like Black Canary, Super Strength like Superman, Super Speed like the Flash, and a Ring, but unlike Green Lantern, his ring doesn't shoot beams...
Good things about the show:
01. The idea is original.
Bad things about the show:
01. Some of the stories in the episodes feel a bit rushed
02. After a while most of those constant She-Puns could get a little Shennoying... Uh, I mean Annoying!

Here's another episode of SithVamp Reviews.
Last time I did the 60s Grinch cartoon, you see,
So now I'll review the live-action movie.
I'll review this film, no matter what Doug Walker would say,
He may think it's bad, but I like it. And by the way,
Since my review on the classic was a poem last time,
I'll also do this review entirely in rhyme.
The movie was made in the year of 2000,
The year, when the new Millennium started risin'.
It was directed by Ron Howard, you see,
The guy who played in Happy Days and American Graffiti.
In the role of the Grinch, to make things a bit scary,
Is none other than the comedy genius known as Jim Carrey.
The role of Cindy Lou Who is played by Taylor Momsen,
But I care as much about that chick as a herd of dead oxen.
This film was also based off the book by Dr. Seuss,
And it starts out in Whoville, the town of the Whos.

No stupid bunnies hopping around,

Cause Halloween is coming to our town!

Powerful love is lacking much but strife
For when honesty sinks, and hurt is withheld
Real love means happiness of the other
No matter whom may be their lover

Tactful Minds part 1"What the hell?!" I screech at Derrick. I am standing on one of the school chairs' trying to avoid the blood that I know is soaking into the carpet. My eyes are closed but I can still tell that it there. I might have been meant for a joke but everyone knows that I am terrified of blood. Three years ago my father was hacked to death by some unknown manic and they still haven't found the murderer. The problem was that I had come home to find his body lying on the floor. My legs had immediately given way and I had fallen to the floor. Once I got to my fathers side I couldn't cope anymore and had burst out in tears and the image had stuck with me forever. Now I live with my dumbass mother who doesn't give a damn about the child that she gave away to the father anyway. "Aww come on, Kerkira, it was just a joke." Derrick replied in a mock pleading tone.

Lax was so confused, he felt both happy and yet sadder than the moon who he howls to. He was sad because he had lost his pack to the sickness and the evil man but he was happy because he had found a new pack, the pack had welcomed him into their pack and even given him a new name, Lax. This pack was different because they only had a little bit of fur on the tops of their heads; they walked on their hind legs and used their forepaws for picking up things instead of their mouths. They had no tails, no tracking skills and no claws but now he had a pack-sister and he was happy. His pack-sister had many pack-brothers and sisters but she was his only pack-sister.

When Billy put our lives on the line for Mr. Jiggles, I knew I had to think fast. I know the rules of the games with Death. Death always wins. The only way I could make it out of that one alive was if I made losing as appealing to Death as winning. That was the only way I would have a chance.

Mandy sat in her office. She'd managed to make a nice little empire in the last ten years. The world didn't know it yet, but she was ultimately in charge. It didn't matter who ran what company, what city, what COUNTRY. Trace it all backwards through the underground channels, and eventually it all came back to her.
But it wasn't an iron fisted rule...nor was it for the betterment of mankind. She enjoyed watching the human struggle, as wars were fought, and any number of other events occured. Watching humanity scurry like so many ant colonies, knowing how easily she could bring it all to an end with a few well placed words...

Grim was the only point of interest at the party. He simply stood, watching everything. At other times, his presence would go unnoticed or uncommented on, but his gaze seemed to be more piercing today. When she felt it pass over her, she felt a sudden delighted shiver pass over her.

They had stopped in Warboroth in a small village near the city for some food when Jareth took Sarah aside. As they strolled past a small park where animals played in tunnels in the ground, a pond sat in the middle. They sat by the pond watc

He reassured himself aloud, 'What with that mute whore being baron.'Your eyes can be so cruel Pg19 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Jareth and Viktus were waving away the remnants of the meal they had had by the ponds on the outside of the Labyrinth, the girls lying on their backs looking up at the sky, the sun fading. 'What other animals do you reckon they can become?' Evey said, turning her head to Sarah, who responded by turning her head also. 'Who knows? Maybe they could make us into fairies. Then I'd bite him to show him how much it hurt!' She giggled happily. The men walked over to them, helping them up from the ground. 'We're going to have to be fast if we want to get to Warboroth before nightfall.' Viktus announced. 'You're right; do you girls know how to ride horses?' Jareth turned to Sarah and Evey who had fearfully blank expressions on their faces. 'I've never ridden a hors

It consisted of many bills, and a brown letter that looked very official. She ripped it open and began to read.Your eyes can be so cruel Pg26 in Fan Fiction More Like This

'Oh for goodness sake, she can stuff her job.' Sarah said rather loudly waking Jareth up. 'What's wrong Sarah?' Jareth said sitting up and rubbing his eyes. 'Oh nothing, just go back to sleep.' Sarah sighed, smiling at him. 'I shall do no such thing, you told me to wait and I'm waiting now.' He said rather smugly. 'Oh alright then, goblin man, I'll be back in a m
Your eyes can be so cruel Pg25Lucious approached his bedroom having sorted the confusion between himself and Maniel, he heard some banging coming from his chambers, he imagined Maniel hadn't released his spell of binding over Toby. As he entered his luxurious bedroom his thoughts were confirmed as Toby was trying to wriggle free of the black ropes that bound his limbs together, although he had managed to clothes himself in a pair of human jeans. 'Tobias, stop wriggling. I'll untie you.' Lucious said sternly, cutting the ropes with a knife he had conjured. Toby sat cross-legged on the floor looking down to the floor. He spoke quietly, his voice shaking as he awaited another strike from Lucious. 'I'm sorry, Lucious. I just couldn't stop myself, he told me that you had used me and that you were engaged to that Celeste.' He said her name with a little disgust. Lucious sat on his bed. 'I was engaged to her, but, I don't want her.' Toby shot a glance at him, 'I know, Lucious, you want Sarah...you're just messing around wYour eyes can be so cruel Pg25 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Your eyes can be so cruel Pg28Maniel and Lucious were watching over the surrounding parts of Warboroth from the highest room in the tower of Lucious' castle, the lands were darkening and it was becoming hard to see. 'Something's coming.' Lucious said mysteriously, squinting into the distance. Maniel held the stone windowsill firmly with his hands, crushing some of the stone. 'It's him, isn't it?' He said shortly, looking up to the sky, away from Lucious. Lucious looked to him, rolling his eyes, 'What do you have against him? Is it because he was human?' Lucious said, his eyes burning a hole in Maniel's head, he turned to Lucious, 'It has nothing to do with that. I'm far better looking than him, anyway.' Maniel said, stroking his cheek and feeling satisfied with his own soft skin. Lucious disappeared, down to the entrance hall. Maniel felt a stab of jealousy in his heart.Your eyes can be so cruel Pg28 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Lucious flung open the doors to the outside, expecting to see Toby on his doorstep, instead he was confronted by Toby, Jareth, Sarah, Evey, Viktus
Your eyes can be so cruel Pg29'Anything else, Master?' The huge animal breathed as Robert stood looking around, as it was suddenly night in Warboroth. The castle hung over him, towering into the sky, it blended with the darkness. 'No, thank you.' Robert whispered, the beast faded from view as the front doors to the entrance hall stood ajar, he heard the music coming from inside. Robert stepped into the main hall, his feet making almost silent clicks along the stone floor; he pushed open the door that was under the stairwells as they wound up from each side like great stone serpents, the room was empty, one of the lounges, the dark, jade coloured armchairs matched with the serpentine tapestries and carved mantle, the hearth was immaculately clean marble. 'Wow...' Robert said aloud, running his hand over the carved mantle. Robert felt he needed to sit down for a while to appreciate this room, he knew he had to look for his children but something was keeping him there.Your eyes can be so cruel Pg29 in Fan Fiction More Like This

Your eyes can be so cruel Pg27They appeared in Berylla's luxurious main hall, Jareth, Sarah and Toby. The trio stood there for a moment, breathing hard, entering the room where Berylla and Evey, closely followed by Sarah, seeing herself stood, clinging to Jareth and Toby, she was slightly shocked. 'Viktus, you can turn back now.' Jareth said, feeling him still clinging. 'Oh alright then,' Sarah said, letting go of his arm, she melted away and there was Viktus, in his usual dress, the same sleeveless poet. 'What the hell, Sarah?' Toby said, stepping away from Viktus and looking to Sarah. 'Look Toby,' Viktus said, fixing his hair, 'We were ambushed in Warboroth and we told Sarah and Evey to come here and tell Jareth's mother.' Toby looked over at Berylla, and then to Sarah and Evey. Sarah approached Toby slowly and crouched down beside him. 'Are you ok, Toby?' She said, putting a hand on his shoulder, seeing the fae markings on his face, one of his blue pools was also now an orange ember burning under his brow.

Your eyes can be so cruel Pg24'Where is Evey?' Sarah said, entering Berylla's castle with a fierce pace. 'She's in the infirmary; she's with the medical officer, I'll show you the way.' Jareth said, knowing his mother's castle like the back of his hand, pacing in front of Sarah. 'Jareth, stop right there.' Jareth stopped and turned on his heel quite angry that she had given him an order and realising he had so swiftly obeyed. 'Yes, dear?' He said through gritted teeth. 'Evey has just escaped a rape, she's not going to want to be seeing any men anytime soon, please, let your mother escort me.' Jareth's expression faded, 'Oh...yes...you're probably right. I'll stay with Viktus.' He stood back with Viktus as Sarah walked away with Berylla. Jareth looked at Viktus. 'Do you think she's going to be alright?' He said, rubbing his jaw with his fingers. 'I don't know...she was in a real bad state when I found her, I thought I was to late...' Viktus replied, his eyes beginning to sting. 'You weren't though, she's ok now.'
