Unsure, yet unafraid.
Innocent, and carefree.
Surrounded by those who love me,
I have the luxury of taking things for granted.
I can afford to waste things like time,
I get what I need, and everything I want.
I am me, myself entirely, and I don't care what people say to it,
Because I am not aware.
I am ignorant, but I am proud.
I live in a world of princesses and knights,
Pirates and ogres.
I am me.
I am perfect.
I am a child.

I guess you could say I'm crazy.
Not much motivation,
I've been a little lazy.
Life is fine, thanks for asking,
It's pouring in the streets.
Skating to and fro with friends,
At least the two halves meet.
Much ado about everything,
Drama seems to be a trend.
I'm sorry if you don't understand,
I no longer have my own hand to lend.
I'm tired of wasting my precious time,
You pretty people, just go away.
I love you all, you know it's true,
But only when I'm insane.

Bittersweet Evening.Yesterday was nice.Bittersweet Evening. in Emotional More Like This
Contemplation gave a bittersweet moment to us.
There were silences, but not like...the usual.
"Just sitting here quietly, enjoying each other's company."
I almost cried inside a few times.
I haven't felt that way since I don't know when.
Yes, there were others around, but we all played unfairly.
Hearts were broken, and in the end, we were nothing at all.
But last night?
I dreamed about you again.
That look you gave me...It felt as if you were looking into my very soul.
We made each other blush, more than a few times.
We laughed together, calling each other names,
But never meaning the insult.
Inside, I prayed that it wouldn't come to an end.
For a short, bittersweet moment in time, we were both happy
True, undaunted happiness, which we haven't felt in forever.
Maybe it was a mistake to hope, but hey, it was nice.
As I've said (to myself) before,
Even if you married, we'd still be the best of friends.

When your name showed on my screen
You've talked me into things before
Awakened my "logical" thoughts

Convey my emotions, and say what I mean when I haven't the words

Lend me your eyes, your ears, the surface of your being

Let me carry you next to my soul, holding you tight wherever I may go

You Are Loved.You Are Loved. in Emotional More Like This
When I was younger, I "knew" what it meant to be in love. It was that silly feeling, that little tickle in your stomach, that prick of excitement that shot through your body when you talked to, listened to, or even thought of that special person. It was that feeling you got when they said "I love you" or complimented you.
But in that idea I was mistaken.
True love is not just that silly, bubbly feeling you get. It's not just the dance, and the romance. It's not just all those happy moments you share together. Not the laughs and smiles, not the daydreams and kisses. It's what is left when all that is taken away.
To truly love a person is not to believe that they are perfect. It is to know and accept that they aren't, and love them anyway. To accept their mistakes, and love them no matter what might be "wrong" with them.
True love is (unoriginal as this is) holding the umbrella over their heads in the rain, even when you're upset with them.
It's not just holding tight while the rolle

As my life faltered, the sound grew louder and stronger.
In that final moment, my spark blossomed into an inferno.
The ragged edges of my wound glowed molten hot,
But that flame was nothing to what smoldered inside me, the true source of my end.
I wasn't burned to ashes by my anger, my betrayal, or my sorrow.
The thing that fueled the flames of my demise was love.
My spark grew too big to be contained, and so it erupted.
I bled lava for you Skyquake, the price I paid for knowing more love
Then anyone has any right to know. It was when the love grew too strong
That I was finally extinguished.

To say that war solves conflicts is to be ignorant. To say that violence is never the answer is to be naive. It seems, as history has proven, human nature, through all of our actions is pleading for conflict. Either to start the conflict, or to watch one transpire. But on the other side, humanity always wants there to be peace. Oddly enough, being that these two can never exist at the same time, we are left to be unsatified. When war breaks out, the people cry for peace, but following that peace, they then become unsatisfied with the conditions and spawn a revolution. Funny thing is, revolutions are like rabbits, they multiply. Once a revolution starts up, other nations hop on the bandwagon either looking for a good fight or the people of those nations want revolutions as well. War ensues.
Now I am beginning to wonder why the war remains for so long. Those who wage war are seemingly always so fanatcal about it, so much that the only will stop with victory or defeat, hardl

My step-dad King Roland II warned my stepsiblings Amber and James as well as myself to be on our best behavior. He also told us to pack our winter coats as the climate of Arendelle was going to be very cool. My parents told me I couldn’t take Clover, Robin, or Mia with me and that they had to stay here back at the castle, I was slightly disappointed, but I understood them as well.
My family packed our luggage together and Baileywick, the castle steward, placed them in the cargo hold of the flying carriage we were taking to Arendelle. He was also taking a separate carriage of his own to announce our arrival when we reach the kingdom.
According to what I’ve heard, Arendelle had this symbolic resident

Hornet made his way into the town that lied next to the castle. The first thing he noticed was that the village was packed with lots of citizens wandering the streets, more than he had ever seen in the towns back in Skyrim. He explored the town by walking the streets, noting the various stores that lined them. He decided to head into the tavern, which was one of the first places that caught his attention.
Upon entering the tavern, he noticed a few recognizable faces. In one corner of the tavern was King Roland’s wife Queen Miranda with her children; and at the front counter was one of the guards from Skyrim, who was apparently drowning himself in mead. Hornet walked up to the counter to request an appetizer of food. Just then, one of Roland’s children, Sofia, noticed his presence and walked up to the hero.

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILER ALERT
1. Introducing the Robot Detective - Pilot Episode. A boy discovers a secret police robot project in a seemingly abandoned factory by accident. The robot has been designed with an artificial intelligence core that can mimic the function and ability of a human brain, allowing it to learn and adapt just like a human. The robot’s name: Deckerd, first of the Brave Police.
2. The Name is J-Decker - Deckerd has been given a support vehicle that he will be able to link up with to form the mighty fighting robot J-Decker ... but there is only one problem. When Deckerd became sentient a number of his data files, including the link-up data, became hidden. Can Deckerd learn how to use his new ability in time to stop a magic-wielding maniac from using a pilfered robotic air force from destroying Tokyo?
3. Partners with a Heart - It is no secret that Deckerd was not meant to be the only one of his kind.
More Than Meets The Optics - Part 3Prowl watched as the three Seekers darted off, presumably back to their hide-out in the sunken hulk of the Nemisis. When Hound had first alerted him of their approach he'd ordered Mirage and the twins to continue a head and take a separate path to the Ark to get reinforcements while he, Jazz and Hound distracted the Decepticons. Admitted, he had no idea at the time what Starscream and his miscreants were up to but he wasn't going to sit around to find out. When the Seekers hadn't pursued the Autobots further than the first bend in the dirt road leading to the Ark Prowl had begun to wonder if there was something he was missing. He'd turned around to close in on the invading Decepticons with Hound and Jazz. They'd found Starscream and his trine fighting amongst themselves over how best to deal with a mech they had surrounded.More Than Meets The Optics - Part 3 in Sci-Fi More Like This

He'd been chasing the same car for twenty minutes now, but no matter how hard he put the accelerator down he just couldn't get any closer to the speeding vehicle. He briefly glanced at his HUD, 80 klicks over the speed limit; this joker was in for the mother of all speeding tickets when he finally realized that Deckerd wasn't going to give up easily. He did have to hand it to the driver though, even on the narrower (and much more crowded) road that had led out to the highway they were on now he'd never once hit or even so much as scratched another vehicle. Deckerd didn't know many people who could drive like that at these speeds.
He's probably had previous experience, Deckerd thought, remembering some of the street races, legal and otherwise, that he'd seen. It was also hinted at in the make of the car in question. It was a mostly white Martini Porsche w

"Power Joe! We need you down here right away! We need Super Build Tiger to deal with this." The urgency in the normally calm combat detective's voice was as clear as day ... but what could get McCrane so worked up on what should be a surveillance mission?
Deckerd didn't get time to ask since Power Joe was already out the door. Not hesitating Deckerd raced after him. Chances were if Super Build Tiger was needed then a little help from J-Decker wouldn't be out of the question. Deckerd triggered the link with J-Roader to start up and follow him once he got on the road. There were days he was glad that the ability to issue the unification command had been transferred to himself, Duke and McCrane.
Seconds later Deckerd charged out of the garage and shifted to his vehicle mode, J-Roader tailing close behind him. He caught up to Power Jo

Raking wet across the shutters

She loved the scent
of ink and smoke -
and the way strangers
caressed her name
like the verdant rushes
rolling off the river bank,
or a low slung
across the floor.
Mornings found her
where the light
and the cat's tale
lingered like a secret,
waking her from dreams
brighter than early frost.
But it was night
that bought and sold her,
made her heart a trinket,
dressing her in silk
as new as nuptials -
that flagrant shade of flush
and the rough and tumble
of her hips
serenading the world

Will and Dragonite continued searching for Clay in the Dacian Region. After searching everywhere, they were lead up to a large mountain. Will hopped on Dragonite's back and flew to the top. As they landed, they both saw a figure in the middle of the mountain top. As they walked towards the middle, a being came into focus. It was Clayton! Clay! I haven't seen you for a year! Where are you seeking shelter?” Clay stared right through Dragonite and Will. He held up a blue orb. The orb started glowing. Clay set it down and began to run, still silent.
With a massive blue flash of light, a blue, four legged dragon came out of it. A roar shook the mountain. Dragonite and Will both knew what it was. “How is Dialga, the pokemon of time here!?” Dragonite asked. “I don't know! Why did Clay release it?” Dialga used Sp

"I missed you little guy" Wizom said as petting Rogue on the head. "I got some pokemon too!" Wizom sent out Squirmander and Bubble. "No way...those couldn't happen to be from...the dacian region could they?" "As a matter of fact they are, Clay." Clay looked puzzled and it was almost as if you could hear the gears rotating in his brain. "Well I can't figure out how you managed to get into the Dacian region and retrieve the pokemon." Clay finally said. "Oh I didn't get them, they were both gifts." "Oh. Lately I've been studying the Dacian region and it's just overwhelming, I can't figure how to get in or out." Clay said confused "Hold on I have a great idea!" "What is it." Wizom replied "Ok, I'm not trying to retrieve the badges, but just trying to stop Team Boulder...from reaching the Da
