.... a red football shirt. Picking it up, you turned it over to see the name. Fernández Carriedo huh? You thought, recalling that name from somewhere. But where..... Then it hit you. The star football player! Of course!
Well, there was no way you were putting that shirt down now! You clung to it, grinning widely. You didn't even know why you hadn't immediately recognized that name, I mean, he was only one of the best football players at the moment, not to mention he was incredible handsome and charismatic.
That's what the cameras showed you anyway, who knows? You pondered, maybe he's an arrogant, antisocial bastard most of the time and he puts on a smile, an adorable one at that in front of everyone.
Whilst you mused on this food for thought, you skimmed the rest of the tables. Conclusion, nothing interesting there. So you proceeded to the counter and bought the shirt eagerly. Even the cashier shot you a look of pure jealousy.

Humming along to Feli’s singing you wondered what it’d be like to dance. Well for that, you supposed, I’d have to be able to see. Or have someone I could trust no matter what.
“Bella!” You perked up and beamed as Feliciano’s footsteps entered the room. “How’ve you been bella?” His voice came closer to you when he hugged you tightly, smiling when you wrapped your arms around his neck.
“Better now that you’re here!” You chirped, grinning at him. He smiled back and chuckled sheepishly as he heard himself talk on the radio again. “You’re listening to this old stuff again?”
Nodding vigorously, you giggled. “Of course! Also this one is good. The

Another night, a stiffer drink. Sadly your life had little to offer besides work and hangovers, which left you feeling cold and lonely.
You walked as if in a daze, a loud smack echoing in your dull ears, followed by a thud and the sensation of hitting the ground.
Blinking, you realised someone was on top of you. He winced and his green eyes pierced yours. "Well hi there." He said, accompanied by a wiggle of his eyebrows. "I can't believe you're still flirting! That's the reason you're on the floor, Dutchy!"
The man on your stomach growled, sighing as he sat up. He sat cross-legged on the floor as he scratched his neck. "Look I get the idea. Can't we just forgive and forget?" He asked jovially.
His blond hair was very spiked up you noted, along with the blush on his cheeks. Jup,
Forever (LatviaXReader)You were in distress at the moment, searching high and low for your small friend. As Raivis really was quite small compared to the other boys he often got picked on and you simply couldn’t have that!

And whilst that sort of thing works at primary school it starts losing its effectiveness at high school. Because the boys got taller than you regrettably. But that didn’t stop you from protecting your friend.
“Rai!” You called, skidding around the corner. A hiss escaped your lips as you saw the brunette on the floor, his stomach being brutally kicked. You advanced towards the group of louts. “Stop it. Now.”
Every word you said was made more menacing as you cracked your knuckles. The punks raised their eyebrows and sauntered over to you. “Does the big girl want to play?” They took hold of your wrist bringing it above your head.
“I think she does.
Left up to you (Bookshop owner JapanXReader)The tiny sound of the bell ringing filled the silence. You stepped through the grimy door, your eyes widening at the cornucopia of books that stretched across the room. Stacks of books were in each and every corner of the little shop, tables overflowing with them. Shelves went all the up to the ceiling, books of all shapes and sizes adorning them.Left up to you (Bookshop owner JapanXReader) in Romance More Like This
This was the sort of place you were looking for, the quiet type of paradise that until now had eluded you. Except, the place was filthy.
Dust cloaked the wooden shelves, hell even the air was thick with it. You had to watch your feet carefully, to make sure your nose wouldn't meet the floor anytime soon.
"Hello?" You said, scanning the room for a sentient life form. "Hello? Is there anyone here?" Your voice got louder as you tried again. After managing to stumble closer to the only table with a cash machine, you rang the bell that was settled on the desk.
A groan emitted from behind the doorway, which was covered by strands of fabric, in an a

Please enjoy and I always love to know what you think, so please leave a comment to tell me your thoughts if you can!
You were having a bad day to say the least. Scratch that you hadn't felt this bad since you'd caught the flu last winter. Not that you were sick or anything, in fact, physically you were absolutely fine. It was just this piece.
No matter what you did, how you played it, it always sounded wrong. And the most frustrating thing? It was so much easier and simpler than almost all the other things you'd ever played.
Sighing, you lay your cello down on the dirty tiles and inspected the little hut sort of thing you were playing in. The house you were staying in was a small chateau, deep in the woods. Your cello teacher had invited you to come to it for a week, during which you would toughen your fingers and your bonds with the other cellists.

Aww, it looked like it had a cape! That settles it! You clung onto the stuffed animal as if your life depended on it for the rest of the time. You didn't find anything else though so you bounced over to the counter and paid for it.
You hugged it as you walked towards the exit when a guy stopped in front of you. He was doubled over and out of breath, so you wondered if he was okay. "Hey are you alright?" You touched his shoulder lightly.
He immediately straightened up with flair and struck a pose. "Of course I'm alright! I'm too awesome not to be!" "Erm okay..."

“Adnan! Put some light into it!” You called at the teen who glowered at you. You were about the same age, and that put him off even more when he had to take orders from you. Growling, he rolled his sleeves up a bit more, his hood still covering most of his face.
He was one of the problem kids you’d met and unfortunately you’d been chosen as his supervisor. Which meant you had to stick with him most of the time. Sadik thought you to be a nuisance at first, but soon realised that you had no choice in the matter.
Slowly he was warming up to you, it was hard not to. He was a teenage boy after all and he couldn’t really complain when a pretty girl hung around him. In fact, at times, the two of you had really quite good conve

Finally, the meeting was coming to a close and you stretched, tired from it already. “So, where are you going to stay?” Italy asked happily. The countries’ ears pricked up at this.

Slowly, cautiously he shifted closer to you. The mattress sunk under his dead-weight, the wooden bed-frame squeaking aloud in protest to his movements. Lutz held still, afraid of waking you. It wasn’t the first time you’d slept together, sleeping without any hanky-panky mind you, but he still couldn’t get comfortable. It was your presence that kept him awake, your scent that made him cling to wakefulness, your even breathing that made his arms quiver with the effort it took to not crush you against his chest.
In the dim light of the moon, curtains intermittent in their swishing in the midnight breeze, he could make out your face. Two half-moons for eyes, closed against the dark light, curved with l

Up ahead, he spotted a figure laying on the ground. Seeing some chance to not be alone, he rushed through the snow, the familiar weight of all his military-grade equipment and clothing on top of him.
He began to make out who it was as he came nearer and by the time he was in front of the figure, he was collapsing to his knees. A beautiful young woman, the country of (country name) laying strewn on the ground.

Wrapping your arms around him, you sighed contently. It was raining outside, nothing on TV was even mildly entertaining. Shutting the television off, you snuggled closer to him.
He moved to rest at the crook of your neck, purring and wafting his fluffy grey and white tail right in your face. Still, he was such a sweet cat despite everything he did that annoyed you.

"Hey ________!" Standing up, you were able to see the Dane shoving through the crowd to get to you, a smile on his face per usual. You opened your arms, allowing him to hug you tightly.
You let out a low laugh, all the air already knocked from your lungs. "I-It's nice to see you too Mathias..." He released his hold on you, bringing you to your feet,"You seem really happy today."

Someone came up from behind you, making you turn only enough to see a female face with a grin before you were falling into the ocean. Now you rest in the ocean, your watery grave awaiting.
A wave pushed you forward, slamming you into the side and knocking all the remaining air in your body out. Trying to swim upwards, struggling for air, you tried swimming upwards once more.

Going to the door, you grabbed your gloves and scarf before rushing out the door after him. 'Stubborn nation...' you thought quietly to yourself, finding his figure in the distance, blending in with the white of the falling snow.
Chasing after him, you felt your mind dizzying. What could he possibly be doing for the umpteenth time for the night that caused him to leave his family and friends behind on the holidays?
You stayed near behind, watching as he walked along the snowy streets of Berlin. Not many people were out, a car or two rushing by as you followed quietly behind him.
After awhile, he stopped at a cement wall, no specifics behind it. There was graffiti littering it and the age obviously showed. Parts were broken and torn away

Opening his eyes, he sat up to try and relax. He barely noticed that there were beads of sweat condensed on his forehead until the coolness of the air hit him. Running a hand through his hair, he shook his head trying to clear it.
A light knock on the door caused him to jump in surprise. "Young master...you seem rather unrest...is everything alright...?"
Ciel took a moment to catch his lost breath and regained composure. "Come in."
The door opened and the lights flickered on. Sebastian stood there with a smile on his face as always. "Young master, it seems you've had a nightmare."

His eyes averted yours, making you sigh. Getting up, you went back to get some bandages and returned to his side. Slowly, you wrapped up the injuries and remained calm.
You knew how he was, very stoic and not easily able to express his feelings. "I can make you something to eat if you want..." He grunted which you took as a 'sure.' Just slightly, you tightened the bandage, making him flinch. "S-Sorry..."
He stood up, simply gliding past you and leaving you by your lonesome once more. It was normal. The others would leave for hours minus Finland and Iceland but with the Finnish boy growing strong and getting more eager to fight, you'd end up a housewife in the end.

Shooting up out of bed, he quickly escaped his bedroom and sought you out. In no time at all, terrible thoughts began to fill his head over what you might be doing.
There was a loud explosion, sending pain into his fragile eardrums and then Ludwig's screams. Gilbert suddenly filled with adrenaline and rushed to where he heard Ludwig's cries.
Bursting into the room, he instinctively readied himself to attack, almost missing the scene of you holding his crying baby brother and trying to calm him down. The second the door burst open, you quickly spun and quickly went back to calming Ludwig.

She whirled around to find Uryuu walking towards her with a bright smile and confident strides along with What the hell?
She and Ulquiorra exchanged a look of utter mortification. Walking towards them, with Uryuu, was a tall, muscular man with electric blue hair. Dressed in a deep blue shirt with the first couple of buttons left open, a pair of tight black pants, a black biker jacket and sneakers, the man exuded an aura of danger. Only Ulquiorra and Orihime knew, he wasn't exactly a man.

A memory pushed it's way into her consciousness- she used to make her bed herself as he watched, his arms tucked in his pockets, his face inscrutable- she shook her head to force the image out of her mind and walked over to her bathroom. She freshened up quickly, a habit she had picked up from back then. She had to shower quick, because he would be waiting outside. Not that he ever showed any signs of impatience when she took long, but she hated to keep anyone waiting. She tied the bath robe firmly across her waist, forcing herself to concentrate on the tasks at hand. She knew it was useless. He would invariably creep into her thoughts, unbidden. Try as she might, she couldn't keep him out of her mind.Chapter 1- The Reason in Romance More Like This

Two consecutive sleepless nights coupled with the recent events had taken their toll on him and his hold on his patience was marginal. He had the distinct impression that his courtiers did not want to work or think for themselves.

Pleasant warmth nestled within Orihime. Even the bad weather, a whiney patient, Dr Hirako's unwanted advances, her assistant's mistake with filing and her less than good health couldn't dampen her spirits. She just had to think of Ulquiorra's flowers or his note and a smile would appear on her lips. Several times Orihime caught herself smiling, as if she was a child who had just gotten her favorite toy. However, pleased as she was, she couldn't bring herself to call Ulquiorra. She didn't know what it was that stopped her hands, but every time she picked up her phone to dial his number, she found that she could not.

The setting Sun cast pinkish-orange hues, making everything look strangely brighter. Orihime kept stealing glances at her silent companion. She was completely thrown off by his unexpected act of kindness. Why had he offered to walk her home? Yes, the area around the park wasn't safe, but they had left the unsafe area a while back.
"I think you should concentrate on the road," he said suddenly without turning to look at her.
Lost in her own thoughts, Orihime had missed hearing his words, "What?"
Patiently he repeated, "I said, concentrate on the road. Given your propensity to turn the absolute mundane into potentially life threatening situations, I don't think it's very wise for you to be distracted."
Orihime made a face, "I don't have a 'propensity to turn absolute mundane into potentially life threatening situations', I'm merely accident prone."

It had been fourteen months to date since the day Ulquiorra had walked out on me angrily. These months had been tough on me, but I had not allowed myself to break down. Many a times I had thought I saw him through the corner of my eyes, but looking closely I would realise it would be someone else. Any raven haired man would make me turn around. I had nothing with me as his memory. I had begun to forget smaller details about him, but what I could never forget were the way he would look at me, shaking me to my core. Many a times in all these months, I had tried to dial his number, but I couldn't. Everytime I would remember his tormented eyes and the deadly whisper, my hands would freeze. On my friends' insistence, I had even tried dating another guy from my college, Jirou, whom I had found mildly interesting.

Ulquiorra looked away from her and stared at the canal. "It is. I can't seem to forget that day," he said in a low voice.
"Do you want to talk about it?" Orihime asked gently.
He remained silent for a while before he started speaking. His voice was so low that Orihime had to lean towards him to hear his words.
"I was thirteen. I remember that my parents had a fight that night," he fell silent after that. A kingfisher swooped down from a branch to grab a small fish from the canal. His brilliant eyes followed the bird, watching it carefully. Only when the little blue-green bird disappeared from the view did he continue.

She quickly turned around and the sight she met made her do a double-take. It looked as if the sky itself was tearing apart. From it emerged a gigantic hollow that was covered in what looked like a black bed-sheet with white spikes poking out from its overly long chest. Where it was supposed to have a face,

Why does time go by so slow?
Lost in the ashes and the snow
Stand feeling hollow
Just like the ones you follow
Youre such a simple object
Couldnt escape the effect
Is it all for the money, all for the fame?
(Is this all a game to you? Is this all a game?)
All for the power, when its just a name?
(Is this all a game to you? Is this all a game?)
So selfish and greedy, you just want to take control!
No matter what you do, you wont TAKE MY SOUL!!

Fear the Dragon CallA storm of lighting breaks the sky as the dragons begin to stir and wakeFear the Dragon Call in Free Verse More Like This
Their roar will thunder across the mountains as the very earth will shake
These ancient beasts of might and magic, are fury and strength personified!
How many of you will remember the days when we were told to hide?
Our mothers would wrap us in special blankets and calm us down with song
We would cower in holes like tiny rats whilst our parents acted strong
The Dragon would burn our homes away and all would turn to dust and ash
Our entire lives would be swallowed up! In a single crimson flash...
It used to be a time of darkness, where a man would live in constant fear
Yet we have found a special way, to protect the lives that we hold dear
My friends I must now present to you the warriors of the Chosen Eight
A group of our honoured champions, who will slay the beasts we hate!
Now they ride for the Volcanic Wastes where the Dragon call has sounded!
Before the beast can stand its ground they will have it fully surrou

There are many bards who can tell you tales
Of the creeping shadows that come at night
We've seen them crawling along the walls
In the absence of the light...
On the darkest of nights, cold and chill
You can hear them quietly gibbering.
They speak of things that you cannot know
Which is why they are always whispering.
It is said that they will know the future
and that they know the fate of every man
They are here to watch his path unfold
or perhaps to have him damned...
These sick and twisted animals
Bear a stench that is rather foul
But you will only smell this scent
if they choose to remove their cowl
It is said that their eyes are like obsidian doorways;
Which hold the key to the depths of the mind.
But none have the courage to look within them;
Afraid of what they'll find...
So my only advice to the weary traveller
Is to believe in the safety of the tavern
Do not look toward the darkest of corners
or you might just stir their cavern...

The spirits whisper on a chilling wind
As the blood continues to flow.
I can hear the demons screaming within
As the darkness continues to grow...
Humankind will always be foolish;
Rash decisions are an instinctive need.
But how could they have forgotten our ways;
Tradition is lost to greed...
The zealous will kill the innocent again
As the greedy play out a game of chess.
A book of gods becomes a creed;
It is a ragged shell at best...
My sisters die in the tens of hundreds
And innocent girls are slaughtered like swine.
I'm afraid that in this dying world;
The God of Blood shall dine...
The blind shall follow in his burning steps;
They will see within him a flame and fire.
And he knows that the hearts of passionate men
Are easily laced with glorious desire...
In dreams he calls and grants them strength
He sends his 'angels' to enchant the night.
He turns the blind into seeing creatures
And robs them of the light...

A temptuous lie, from the moment that you denied

The swirling mist of a blood red fog...
Descending down upon this untamed dog...
Just wash away, the sins of man...
Blood red stains as I, held her rotting hand!
Awaken me! but leave me broken inside-
Colder sins that never left from me

Or maybe I'd find a sacred sword or a really ancient knife!

How many days have I watched them stumble, cursin' ill their fate.

So many souls are quickly trampled beneath their ugly feet....

Just as there are four elements
Existing in harmony with one another
So too are there four states of poetry:
Air is the element of freedom
Exemplified by the use of free verse
It has no structure and no true shape
But allows us creative control
Through the use of air as a poetic medium
We allow our emotions a freedom to be
We allow them to soar upon worded wings
Gliding freely through the skies of literature
Water is the element of the changing flow
It can be hard as ice or as soft as snow.
Its nature resembles the power of rhyme
Which grants us order and a structured mind
By pushing and pulling the words we may-
create a picture of what we wish to say
Painted upon a canvas of emotional lines
We create a sculpture of structured rhymes
Earth is uncomprising
Craggy on the whole, it resembles the concrete
Like the craggy mountains with peaks and valleys
It can take us down

Continuing to seek a final solution to 'the Human Problem'.

Of these furless creatures lurking in the outer reaches.
Some cities have found them living in underground caverns;
Preying upon the young pups that stray too close to their nests.
It is sad, to say the least, but that sorrow ends today;
For it is my privilege and honour as Chairman of Lycanthropes United,
To unveil our newest means of combating this parasitic pandemic.

Discovered a particular genetic weakness in the Human cell structure,
When sprayed with this particular gas, 'Cynofium',
The human cells stop producing an important chemical;
Causing a quick death in mere moments...

But she is not ugly, nay she is beautiful
She appears like an angel with the wings of a crow
Yet those whose hearts are in the grip of denial
Will view her as a spectre in a blizzard of snow
Closer she creeps with a neck that has been snapped
Her gaping mouth sags as she calls out their name.
They try to run from her, but it is all in vain
For soon they will be forced to feel her pain...

You just wait and pray it will go away

Only, when she smiled, his body did all sorts of things that he was certain would normally send him to an early grave. But, he would want her to smile anyway, even if his heart skipped enough beats to kill him or he suddenly forgot how to breathe or his brain spontaneously stopped functioning properly and turned to mush.
Argh, leave me alone, dammit! he thought. Or, at least, he thought he thought it. Apparently, though, he actually said it

Some very loud moans woke Sakura from her sleep. She grinned rather viciously. It appeared that the boys were up and, from the sound of it, really feeling the effects of all that alcohol they had consumed the night before. The lumps received from her fists probably werent helping much either.
Sakura had reached camp with an unconscious Kiba on her back to find the other boys in their respective tents and her female companions (the retainers of her sanity) equally out cold in their own. After unceremoniously throwing dog-boy in with Naruto, she settled down for the few hours of sleep she had left.
Well, she had better go see exactly how they were faring. Very poorly, from the sound of it. Plastering on her best overly-cheerful, I-am-soooo-enjoying-your-pain-right-now smile (she had picked that one up from Tsunade as well), Sakura went out to greet her new patients.

"I hear Pripyat is pleasant this time of year."
Sniper stood watch, just outside the old travel agency building. Aside from somehow withstanding the rest of the block collapsing around it, the shop was impressive for having reasonably preserved brochures. Captain and Pilot would often amuse themselves by planning trips to countries that no longer existed, and Engineer would gather what they discarded for kindling. Whenever Sniper grew sufficiently bored, he'd call out with something he thought was witty.
It was a bit like that, being on watch; you'd either say something funny and die knowing your sense of humour was too good for this world, or you'd say nothing and die without validating your ego.
"Actually," Engineer spoke up from the Visit Asia section, a finger tracing over dusty advertisements as he moved along the aisle, "One of the last GOOD directorate broadcasts sent out was a list of anomalies brought on by the apocalypse, and apparently Chernobyl became the least radiated pla

John grinned and turned on the man to the end of their line; he raised his axe, but John cut at him with all the power a charging man ahorse can and his sharp blade cut through the axe's haft and into the man behind it.
John whirled about and aimed a stroke at the second man in line. Had he fools stayed together, one could have struck at his back while he deal with another. But her would not let them rcover from their mistake.
The second villain was strong of arm, and barely blocked John's slash with a rusty sword. John drew back and lunged: his point dove past man's guard and into his chest. He dropped dead, his own weight freeing John's sword.
The third man threw away his sword and ran; John ignored him for the fourth varlot, who struck at his horse.

'Perhaps the most despicable class of people I know: those who jam their knees into the backs of people sitting in front of them.'
Some ass commented by saying:
'Despicable? Really? Does it not occur to you that those behind you may be 6 foot and that their legs may well be by far the longest parts of their bodies, rendering it almost impossible for them to NOT stick their knees in your back.
Think before you judge.'
To which I replied thusly:
'As a matter of fact, I am over six feet high, my legs are by far the longest part of my body, and I manage to NOT stick my knees in the backs of the people in front of me.'
In fact, I go to a great deal of effort and discomfort to keep my knees out of other people's backs, so when some 5'2" woman can't be bothered to keep her knees out of mine, it pisses me off.
But what pisses me off more than almost anything is said ass' easy assumption that I did not think. 'Think before you judge' 'Does it not

Shiny PokemonShiny or alternate-colored Pokémon are effectively the same as their normal counterparts and generally show no differences aside from the one that matters the most: their appearance. Many species of Pokémon and organisms in general are never exact duplicates of one another and have some form of variation within their body structure, color patterns or something else that sets them apart from the rest. Shiny Pokémon, however, are unique in that they possess a color pattern on their fur or skin that is abnormally distinct from that normally associated with the species. This rare coloration is not due to a random variation but a genetic mutation within the genes of a subject's DNA that control their external color patterns. These distinct mutations are incredibly rare and only occur at a rate of one birth per 4096 normal births, making them extremely valuable to the right people and highly sought-after among collectors worldwide; thankfully, the unique mutation required forShiny Pokemon in Profiles More Like This
Analysis of the Water-typeINTRODUCTIONAnalysis of the Water-type in Profiles More Like This
The Water-type is a universal type across the planet and effectively defines both the existence of a significant number of Pokémon and where life in general first began. Though it might not have as many powerful fighters as other types, the Water-type is about as well-rounded in terms of offenses and defenses as one can get and is equally great in offensive and defensive battles as well as tactical matches and offers a great variety of creatures for trainers to work with at a young age. As such, it comes as no surprise that it is often chosen along with the Grass and Fire-types as one of the key types that beginning trainers can choose from and serves to act as the defensive type in the trio, balancing out the offenses of the Fire-type and the tactical abilities of the Grass-type nicely. Most of the creatures assigned to the type may not be the best at battling in many cases, but for those willing to give it a try, there are few opponents that will be able to easily p
FlutesFlutes have been used as musical instruments for thousands of years and are strongly connected to the development of culture among early humans and our relatives, but in the context of Pokémon, these items can occasionally have some interesting effects. In most cases, flutes are designed to make others feel welcome and create a pleasant tone that is a joy to hear; some flutes, however, have more important features in battle and are thus separated from the traditional instrument and covered here exclusively.Flutes in Profiles More Like This
Flutes are divided into two main groups, glass flutes and non-glass flutes. The glass flute category includes five different types of flutes that are produced exclusively within the Hoenn region by a glassblower near Fallarbor Town. The man responsible for the production of these flutes is well-renowned amongst glass sculptures for his ability to create different flutes as well as exquisite furniture out of volcanic ash, a material that can be difficult to work with by hand but
Analysis of the Dark-typeINTRODUCTIONAnalysis of the Dark-type in Profiles More Like This
The Dark-type is a mysterious but powerful type that defies the boundaries set in motion by the laws of physics and effectively is much more than most would assume straight from battle. Though perhaps not among the most common of types, the Dark-type is a fairly universal type for the sheer commonness of Dark-type attacks amongst all kinds of non-Dark-type Pokémon, particularly in the case of moves like Bite and Crunch. Although it might be easily felled by the common Fighting and Bug-types and the not-so-common Fairy-type and has little to offer in many cases outside of simple offense, the Dark-type is truly a tactical type that can mess with the opposition's strategy, keep them from completing a simple task in a line of combinations or just outright immobilize them with fear and panic. It certainly might not be among the easiest of types to master, but for those willing to risk the type's downfalls for its sheer versatility, it is unlikely that many opponents will b
Analysis of the Ghost-typeINTRODUCTIONAnalysis of the Ghost-type in Profiles More Like This
The Ghost-type is perhaps the most poorly-understood type in existence and effectively straddles the line between what is definable by science and what isn't. The Ghost-type is the least common type out of all recognized types (tied with the Fairy-type) and has a limited capacity to deal damage effectively in battle, but this flaw is more than supplemented by the type's specialty in causing panic and Confusion among all that dare to challenge it head-on without some serious backup plans. For those who believe in spirits, the Ghost-type is merely just another addition to the miracle that is existence, but for others, it is a dangerous type that is often times ignored simply for its unusual features and powers. For those willing to put aside such thoughts and look carefully at the type, though, a world of pain and misery opens up that very few opponents, regardless of how skilled they are, will be able to handle completely.

Pokerus ReportAlthough it is quite rare in the wild and almost never seen by most trainers, the Pokérus is an amazing and utterly unique organism that can make life for trainers trying to train their Pokémon through EV-oriented methods literally twice as easy as before.Pokerus Report in Profiles More Like This
The Pokérus is different from all other viruses in that it actually does not serve a damaging relationship with other life forms. The name of the virus comes from the fact that it is only capable of infecting Pokémon but is otherwise able to infect any type of Pokémon regardless of how powerful or weak it might be. It is commonly believed today that the Pokérus is of an ancient design due to its capacity to actually infect any species of Pokémon and may have been one of the earliest types of viruses to actually exist, though a lack of fossilized virus material makes such a statement a bit presumptuous. Regardless, the Pokérus is essentially everywhere and has no preferred environment of habitat
The Shadow CrisesINTRODUCTIONThe Shadow Crises in Profiles More Like This
The pursuit of knowledge and understanding has led more than a few scientists past the point of safety throughout the ages, an action that is perfectly exemplified in the Orre region's Shadow Crises. While the crises in question may now be over and perhaps has safely recessed into the annals of history with no hope of coming back, the creation of Shadow Pokémon and the lingering effects of this transformation still speak a great deal about the world and show just how desperate some organizations are willing to go so they might rise to the top and someday rule the world. What follows is a historical and scientific examination of the Orre region's Shadow Crises as well as the origins behind Shadow technology and the possibility of the technology ever being resurrected in the future.

Capture TechnologyINTRODUCTIONCapture Technology in Profiles More Like This
Although it might be among the most common of items among the partiers of trainers, capture technology in general is something that relatively few people actually understand and appreciate for the miracle that it is. For centuries, the truth behind the mechanics that make capture devices real has been a closely guarded secret and likely will remain so for quite some time; this does not, however, mean that one does not have to be familiar with how the devices work in order to get by in the world. What follows is a comprehensive description and analysis of the three major forms of capture technology (capture balls, Capture Stylers and Snag Balls) and what sets them apart from each other in practice.
The history of capture balls is one whose length is still unknown to modern historians, but it can easily be assumed that it has been around for a great deal of time. Ancient remnants of capture ball technology can be found in ruins dating back tens of thous
