Because they say that for every single boy who counts the stars, there is a little girl who is wishing upon one. (And they never mention what happens after the stars fade into morning and the other falls into oblivion)
Because they say that people fall in love when the time is right, they are true to each other and are ready to be together. (But no one ever mentions how she is so damaged she can barely think, and he is so cynical that he may never be ready.)
Because they insist that your soulmate is going to be a good, kind, caring human being who will love you from the bottom of their hearts. (This is due to the fact that even if there is someone for everyone, bad people are immune to the soulmate theory.)
Because they always have a happy ending (And real life begins after the sun has set and she has realized that he may not be everything she hoped for and he begins to have second thoughts about commitment.)

She doesn't like her name either. Not because Emily isn't a pretty name but because she would rather be called something she feels like.

and forms a pool where the drain clogged
bubbles spill over the edge soaking the counter.
Scrubbing away the dirt of the day
trying to wipe away the memories of past
yet the makeup won’t come off the skin.
Black rivets dripping down in streams
mascara and eyeliner blurring dark circles
making raccoon circles around the eyes.
Rubbing into skin until vision blurs
the mirror reflects what is to be seen
a lonely girl with makeup that won’t come off.
Red lipstick is smeared on chin
and harsh soap turned pink and grey
the skin is gone turned brittle and dry.
Water balls and doesn’t form
nothing making a dent in the colors
of one decorated face.
Because the tears won’t fall
where they do not belong anyway
and the painted face is too covered to see.
The makeup can’t leave its home
the faded colors leaving stains
while the towel wipes the water away.
And when all is said and done
the makeup remains
and a painted face is just a remnant.
Grow UpWhen I was young,Grow Up in Free Verse More Like This
I knew a girl.
She was so warm and bright,
so I asked her that question
that all children must answer.
'What do you want to be
when you grow up?'
Her eyes lit up with joy
and she jumped with excitement.
No, an astronaut!
I'll be famous
and in movies!
will be everywhere!'
She listed so many more
until she finally just smiled
and looked at me with eyes filled
with child-like wonder.
'I could be anything I wanted.'
Years and years later,
I saw the same girl again
but her eyes no longer
lit up with wonder.
I asked her,
'What did you end up being?'
She smiled the hollow smile
that adults have when talking to the young.
'Not what I wanted to be
when I was young.'
Nothing more was said on the matter
but I could see that there was no more wonder
in the eyes that once shone so brightly.
Ebony GirlFor when she enters the room of musicEbony Girl in Free Verse More Like This
the people turn to stare at her in awe.
As the music plays without a hitch
she moves around and dances with grace.
The men trade and all night they dance
the light of candles casting great shadows.
The beauty of her is greater than all
coming forth when she dips low in elegance.
The men dance and the women envy
and the elegant girl has a mask of ink.
The calls of night are too great to hold
and she slips away when the music is gone.
Men disperse but women still talk
elegance of woman is nothing to be heard.
The girl is gone but the music still echoes
before tomorrow even dawn the rumors start.
Of the girl in the ebony dress that danced by night
but was never seen by the charcoal people again.

The tear stained face looks up

The voice breaks,

"Stop! I'm not okay!"
The internal voice screams,

Imaginary FriendsMy reflection in the mirror hates me,Imaginary Friends in Free Verse More Like This
and I know because she told me so.
She twists and turns and fogs the glass
bending unnaturally while moving with me
she pinches her skin and leaves blemishing marks
tearing off pieces she deems she does not need.
“Just wait,” she whispers as she bites her lip
“only so much longer and I can be free,”
her lips are bleeding again, but I’m brushing my teeth
“free to hurt and bend and break that wonderful body of yours.”
I can hear the whispers, I can hear her skin tearing.
She reaches up and touches the glass
and it bends under the brushing of skin
I finally speak with a tilt of the head
“Imaginary friends shouldn't be able to do that.”

Turning Down Cheesecake
Emery had to admit that Derek was starting to scare him. And not in the good way where his friend was hyper. No, Derek was unusually quiet, even for him, and had only left him alone to use the bathroom and get food and drinks. Emery was itching to run. He didn't like to be watched so closely. Derek was acting like a mother-hen. Emery knew his friend was prone to moments of "caring" and "looking out" for others, but this was getting ridiculous. So he'd had a black out again--big deal. It had happened before and there was no doubt it would happen again in the future. He wasn't so sure what his friend was worried about but that crease in Derek's brow had yet to go away.
Plus he hadn't been yelled at yet. That wasn't a good omen. Usually when Derek was angry or upset with something or someone, he heard about it right away--also because it tended to be about him half the time. He had a knack for pissing his friend off. But after fourteen years of frie

New Kid Again
It was a dreary Monday morning, as all Mondays appeared to be in the minds of students and teachers alike. The beginning of a new week, of days of learning and waking early to arrive at the building of the smiting of ignorance. Robby had never liked Mondays, for obvious reasons but also for others. For one, her brother, Sam, had been in a horrible car accident on a Monday. She could remember getting called home from school because her brother was in the ICU and could possibly die. That had been one of the worst days of her life and it was hard to believe it was only two years ago. Also, it had been on a Monday that her parents had officially gotten divorced. She and her brother lived with their mom now. Her brother's wreck had been one of the only things to bring her parents together, and she could still remember them fighting in the waiting room while she sat there, terrified that she would become an only child far too soon.
Mondays were the bane of her exi

Time to Explain
Prowling outside of Emery's room probably made him look like some creeper, but Derek didn't really care. Pacing was too gentle of a word for the long, pronounced strides he was taking. Emery had blacked out in the strangest way possible. He had passed out like the before, of course, but not in a while now, and usually never so intensely. Derek had dragged his friend back to the house, the only thing he could think to do, and May had quickly ushered them inside. Derek had asked if they should go to the hospital but May had shaken her head and said that he would wake on his own like he always did. She had also said, though, that if he didn't wake by the next morning, they were going to have to take him to the hospital to get checked out because maybe Marouq had caused some damage or something.
It shocked him, still, to know that May knew of the Other Side. She had learned about it the day Emery's mom had been put in the hospital

"Yes," Emery growled. "It is! Especially when it's you!"
"You know what they say like father like son," Marouq said with a grin. "You are just like me, Emery--you just don't know it yet, son, but soon you will."
Emery snarled something under his breath and Robby just looked terrified and overly confused. Sam looked intrigued and yet edgy, as though he were worried, which he had every right to be. Derek swallowed thickly, struggling to think of what to do or say.
"Now, as for why I brought you here," Marouq continued. "I believe it's time for father and son to be reunited." He stepped forward. "Will you join me, my son?"
"Hell no," Emery snapped, glaring even as Derek's stomach twisted uneasily. "Why would you possibly think I would?"
"Oh, I don't believe I was actually giving you a choice," Marouq said as his eyes flashed, the crimson, blood-red color becoming more pronounced. Derek kept his hold on Emery's shoulder as though to ground him and keep him

Robby held her little brother close to her chest and struggled to breathe through the frantic fear that had her heart racing and her mind spinning. Above her beckoned a burning red sky, the sun set low and somewhat behind the mountains far off in the distance. Her heart stuttered quickly as Sam looked around in amazement, held tightly in her arms. She held him as though he was the only link to reality, the only physical hold she had as she stared at Emery and Derek, who were sharing looks. Emery shrugged as though a silent message had passed between them, and then glanced at her.
"I didn't want it to happen this way," he said to her slowly, shrugging in a 'what-can-you-do?' sort of way before he rubbed nervously at the back of his neck. "But welcome, Robby."
Robby stared at him with wide, ample eyes, sure she would pass out soon from how quickly her heart was racing. "W-What?"
"Welcome to the Other Side."

Robby didn't necessarily hate her first day, but she didn't enjoy it either. As she found out, she shared three classes with Emery Roland, the boy that had been drawing in her first hour class of Etymology, and also three classes with Derek, the blonde boy that had also been there. Each class she had Emery in, Derek was there too. She also saw a few of the people that had been at their lunch table. For the life of her, though, she couldn't figure out why it mattered to her one way or the other. Why was she seemingly fascinated by them? Maybe it was because of their actions in first period. Maybe it was because they seemed painfully familiar to her somehow, even though she couldn't for the life of her figure out why. Maybe she was just going crazy.
Gunny's words kept ringing through her head about how she couldn't become their friend. She hadn't really asked why after a certain point and Gunny hadn't elaborated much, but usually that was okay with her. For some

Emery got up and ready for school an hour earlier than usual. Not by choice, really, but because his head was hurting and the pain had woken him, and despite the fact that all he wanted to do was lay down for a while longer, he forced himself to go ahead and get up and shower. Toweling his body dry, he pulled on a pair of pants and exited the bathroom, shirtless. Steam followed after him as beads of water and sweat dampened his forehead. That bathroom got hot rather quickly, but then again, that was what happened when it was such a small room.
He liked it when the house was quiet. Contrary to popular belief, he did like being alone at times, but that was nearly impossible what with the others and Derek living at the house, along with his aunt There always seemed to be someone around. So sometimes, he liked getting up earlier than everyone else so that he could have some peace and quiet and time to himself. He loved his friends, of course he did and

The Other Side
Derek and Emery stood there quietly for a moment, watching as Robby stood there in shock, not even blinking, probably not even breathing as she held Sam tight to her chest. Derek had to admit that it was kind of fun being on this end of it--but in the beginning, he'd been on the receiving end and it hadn't been fun at all. Emery gave him a look and then shrugged. Derek jerked his head at Robby, signaling for him to say something. Emery looked at her, a faint smile twitching on his lips. "I didn't think it would happen this way," he said, his voice sincere even though he looked amused at the expression on Robby's face, "but welcome, Robby."
Robby just stared. "W-What?"
"Welcome to the Other Side." The way the words rolled off of Emery's tongue had chills slithering through Derek's spine. They were ominous and good-humored all at once--a feat only Emery seemed to be able to accomplish. Robby just kept staring at them without looking away or blinking. Derek w

Derek's jaw clenched as he listened to Emery reveal to Robby and the others that she was one of them. Of course, he was sure the others had figured it out earlier when Emery had been telling about his black outs and how they happened when new Siders were around him. He wondered if the others had come to the same conclusion as him--that Robby had to join them, and if she didn't, she would ultimately be dooming Emery
Robby's eyes were wide as she stared at Emery. "W-What?" she spluttered like a fish out of water.
"You're one of us," Emery repeated. "It fits. I couldn't figure out why I was getting those black outs and then with the one I had yesterday, I knew it could only be from one thing, and that's you. You're a Sider, like us."
"You're crazy," Robby said, shaking her head. "I'm not one of you. I'm not like you!"

After seeing her daughter collapsing, Marge started running to her, quickly followed by Bart and Homer. The rest of the crowd tried to follow, but Bart blocked them by spreading his hands in front of the breakwater.
"Sorry, no more entrances!" he said. "Besides, you couldn't even all fit in there."
"The kid's got a good point", Chief Wiggum said.
Bart turned around and ran at his family at the end of the breakwater. Marge was kneeling and holding Lisa's body on her lap. She gently stroke her green hair.
"Please, honey, wake up", she said quietly, with no response.
Homer's eyes were watering.
"Oh, my little girl", Homer said quietly. "You were really brave." He knelt besides Lisa.
Bart also knelt besides her sister. "You saved us all, Lis", he said. "That was so cool."
For a moment all the Simpsons just looked at Lisa's body.

Hi. You can call me Lisa Simpson. Or Clobber Girl. That's my superhero name. I've done many things in my life: travelled in many different countries, performed magic tricks, been close to being killed, written cartoons, but they're nothing, nothing compared to the life of a superhero with awesome super strength that allows me to pick up and toss cars like toys, lift houses, break through walls like they were wet cardboard, and beat the hell out of evil bank robbers twice of my size.
And believe me, being a superhero you get a lot of attention, even though as myself, I'm still the abonded little girl with a straight line of A pluses from almost every subject. The best thing about this thing is that I'm not doing this alone. I also have my whole family in it: my brother Bart (Stretch Dude), my baby sister Maggie (Bouncing Battle Baby), my dad (The Pie Man), and my mom (The Entangler) are doing this as well.

Bio: After stepping through the interdimensional portal, Leonardo was ambushed by another ninja. His ninja training kept his head on his shoulders, but after a locking of weapons, Leo recognized his attacker as the famed dragon ninja, Ryu Hayabusa. With some reasoning, he convinced Ryu that they were on the same side and that, maybe, their meeting was not coincidence. Finding they had a similar goal and seeing the potential to learn from one another, both agreed to take on the Tag Battle together as fellow ninjas.
Intro: Leonardo makes a spectacular leap into the arena, lands on the ground, then draws his ninjaken as he says, "Can you match the power of the ninja?" Shortly afterward, a falcon lands right next to Leo and, in a puff of smoke, transforms into Ryu Hayabusa, and draws the Dragon Sword.

A gentle breeze passed through the iconic white cap of the mountaintop. Snow billowed from the clouds and covered the otherwise-black stone outcropping of the Earth. It seemed an odd place for one to look for life.
Yet there were signs of civilization tucked away in this seemingly-desolate place.
Among the higher parts of the mountain there was a monastery, one that had long been abandoned and was showing signs of falling apart such as crumbled pillars and ceiling segments that had long since fallen apart. The entire place was adorned with tall pillars, a bridge to a massive bronze bell, and ornate, golden statues in the shape of the largest of the cat family: the tiger.
