Journal #2First off, a big apology to all the people wondering where I've been the last couple of weeks. Life has been... hectic as of late. But now that school's out I'll be dedicating quite a bit more time to deviantArt and to the activities that got me so involved in this site. Chiefly making some Daedric armor! I haven't had time to work on it but I'm still very excited about the project, mainly due to the discovery of bondo filler putty (A big thanks to fairlyodd1217, go check out his iron helmet http://fairlyodd1217.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5a0on4). My original daedric helmet is really rough because I lost patience with trying to smooth out the bondo, but now that I know better than to rush it (and filler putty to help smooth it even more) I'm thinking I can get my pieces to the prop level quality I had envisioned.
It's also worth nothing that I think it's high time I got with the times and make my files available for download. My original plan was to make this all very pers
PnF: Vocal Blues ch8"So, Candace, how goes the job search?" Lawrence asked as he passed the plate of steak around the table that night at dinner.PnF: Vocal Blues ch8 in Fan Fiction More Like This
His daughter grabbed it from him and took a piece of meat before passing the plate onto her fiancé. "A little rough, but I'm positive," Candace replied. "As long as I can start saving up a bit for music college, I don't care." Shortly after Phineas and Ferb had helped their mother set the table, Candace and Jeremy arrived. However, because of Phineas' muteness, Ferb made up a clever excuse to keep them away from their sister and her fiancé; he claimed that Isabella needed some help with some singing, and before either of their parents could say anything, Phineas and Ferb had left the house and walked across the street to visit their neighbour.
Of course, Isabella had been informed about this by text, and so instead all three sat in her backyard until Linda called her sons back.
"Have you had any luck on getting accepted at any school?" Linda wondered.

Loose items sitting on the dresser rattled as the top floor of the house shook weakly. Danny opened his eyes fairly quickly, yet sleep still managed to keep them from opening all the way. He stared drowsily around the room before finally realizing that the thunderstorm that had begun that evening was still rumbling on through the night. The rain pitpatted gently against the windows of the master bedroom.
Danny blinked sleepily before a bright flash of lightening lit up the room for a split second. Following hardly a second afterwards came the roaring thunder.
As a child, thunderstorms had frightened him for many years; but now, Danny had learned to enjoy the gentle pit pat of the rain and the rumbles of the clouds above. He sighed tiredly and turned onto his left side before closing his eyes again.
Beside him, his wife stirred. "Danny, are you awake?" she whispered, partially asleep.
Danny groaned weakly but did not say anything else.
"Was that thunder?"

He wanted out of the cage to give them a piece of his mind, as well as go and rescue his owners.Things I will Risk For You c14 in General Fiction More Like This
None of the agents that had left earlier to search for the boys returned, which meant that they were still outside hunting them. That could only mean that they were still alive or else injured and hiding. Perry prayed it was the former, but whichever it was, they were still alive.
All he had to wait for now was for someone to open his cage.
"Have they been taken care of yet?" the bald man asked one of his men.
There was a momentary pause before Perry heard a reply. "Not yet, Sir," a man spoke up. "Apparently, the boys sent them on a wild goosechase."
"Just make sure they don't leave this base," the one in charge ordered. "I want them both dead before morning."
"But what about Major Monogra!"

"I'm still alive."
"Would you stop being so cynical? We're almost there, Ferb."
They darted in zigzags in the corridors, avoiding cameras, traps and even other agents. Once they had arrived on the floor they had to be on, they noticed that security seemed to get thicker. It became trickier to avoid being seen. Twice alr

Danny led them behind an abandoned building and glued himself against the wall. Tucker, Sam, Andy, Jazz, Jack, Maddie and Johnson followed his action and hid as he did, panting loudly in the progress.
"Danny, you're finally back home!" Jazz exclaimed happily, looking at her brother.
"You don't know how much we've missed you!" Maddie added.
Danny looked at them and grinned. "If it's as bad as I've felt for the past five years, I think I've got a pretty good idea," he replied. He stared out towards the clearing. "Though you guys really could have picked a better time to activate those Spirit Gems." He looked at Tucker and frowned softly. "Cutting it a little close, don't you think?"
"Hey; don't go blamin' it on me, Dude!" Tucker replied. "I'm the one who broke into the museum to get that stupid rock!"
"Aren't heroes supposed to make it in the nick of time anyway?" Sam asked with a sly grin.
Danny looked at her. "Sure," he replied. "But not this close."

Jazz was already at home, doing her homework in the study room, when Danny and his friends came over. There was a loud BANG against the front door, causing the sixteen-year-old to jump out of her chair in fright and stare at the door.
There was a pause before she heard anything. "ONE, TWO, THREE, I WIIIIIINNNN!!!" came the excited hollers of two teenage boys.
The red-headed girl sat back down and glared at the door in irritation. "Danny, you dork," she muttered before returning to her studies.
The doorknob turned and the door flew open, sending Danny and Tucker flying to the floor beside each other. "OOF!!" they both shouted as they landed. Tuckers glasses tumbled off of his face and his beret flipped onto Danny's head instead.
Sam walked over them, not caring by the least that she stepped at least once on their backs. "You guys are so pathetic, sometimes, it's hard to believe," she said with a yawn.

It had been, in fact, his pet platypus who had noticed.
Perry had followed Phineas down the stairs merely out of pity for the boy. He had noticed the distress in Phineas' eyes as he got dressed, and although he had been absent for the morning, Perry had in fact re-entered the house early again, and just as his owner dashed out with Ferb attempting to apologize for something he did. Whatever Ferb had said to him, whether the green-head had meant it or not, had hurt Phineas more than anything anyone had ever said to him before.
Perry climbed onto the couch as Phineas left the house and walked out onto the driveway from the window. The platypus watched him sadly, wishing there was some way Phineas could cheer up and be his old self again. Perry loved him the most when he was happy, and he would continue to; with or without a voice.

Danny was not planning on having a good day that Monday morning. Once again, there was school, and once again, his parents had kept him up with the racket in their laboratory.
It had been that way for several weeks, now. Since they began, neither Danny nor Jazz were allowed in the basement, although there was no doubt his sister would never set foot in there anyhow; since she had turned thirteen three years earlier, she had considered her parents to be crazy, and had begun to try and find different ways to convince them of letting their ghost hunting obsessions go.
Which was always easier than done.

Danny groaned as he slipped his white t-shirt over his body and pulled his head through. "How long do they expect to keep this up?" he pouted. After a yawn, he slipped his socks over his feet and grabbed his red sneakers. "If I don't get some sleep soon, I won't last another day through school."

Ferb passed a hand through his hair and sighed heavily. "I yelled at him," he admitted shamefully. It was now four o'clock. Ferb had spent the entire afternoon searching for his little brother, but to no avail. He went to every stop they enjoyed in the city, every place they hung out, every hideout they had discovered over the years. But one other thing Ferb had learned about Phineas was that he was incredibly cunning. Someone with that large of an imagination had to be.
Which meant that if Phineas did not want to be found by anyone, even by Ferb, then he never would be until he decided to come out himself.
Ferb searched for him nonetheless. He took out the snowmobile from the garage and searched through the entire neighbourhood, thinking that he would be able to catch up with his best friend in no time. But to his dismay, after a little over three hours of searching, he was forced to give in and head back home.

But because he could not, all he could do was grab onto whatever he could as Ferb attempted to drag him out of the door.

Only after Phineas had gotten completely dressed did Ferb tell him what they were doing and where they were going.PnF: Vocal Blues ch4 in Fan Fiction More Like This
And for the first time, Phineas was not agreeing with him.
Ferb groaned as he pulled on his brother's arm, fighting to lead him to the front door. Phineas was pulling himself in the opposite direction. "Come on, Phineas, we don't have time to play around!" he said. "Vanessa will be here to pick us up in a few minutes!"
Phineas shook his head violently and slapped his gloved hand down on top of Ferb's. Ferb let go of his brother's arm, but Phineas only had but a split second to escape before Ferb had grabbed him around the waist. "Do you know any other man who builds things on

The tiny unicorn squealed with delight as she gazed upon her surprise party. The backyard of the little cottage had been transformed into a veritable filly's wonderland. Several tables were laid out, covered in festive tablecloths and adorned with balloons. A mountain of colorfully wrapped gifts was piled in on one of them, and the rest were laden with large amounts of sweets. There was even a huge custom birthday cake, a real one, professionally prepared at Sugarcube Corner, instead of the muffin topped with a candle Dinky was used to receiving on her birthday.
Many of the fillies and colts from Dinky's class at school stood in the yard as well.

Youre Wybie, silly, youre here for Coraline.

My new daughter, almost. You see, right now shes in a nasty world where no one is nice to her. Everyone ignores her, and the Wybie there is very annoying and doesnt listen to her.

To slow things down, even for a moment.
Wow Other Wybie gazed up at the theater in which he found himself.
After he had stepped in the front door of the theater, a little Scottish dog with a flashlight directed him to where he was going to sit. The theater was gigantic, and there were hundreds upon hundreds of little dogs in the seat rows.
Im guessing theres a performance then? Other Wybie thought as he sat down in one of the two vacant seats in the front row.
I cant let myself be distracted, I have to tell Coraline whats going on somehow I wont let her fade away. Other Wybie thought. Of course, he had no idea that he could be easily swayed during this performance, but alas he still thought it.
The dogs began to bark, and someone had entered the theater. The show was sta

Other Wybie woke up. A scream had shaken him out of unconsciousness.
What in the world, where am I? he thought.
He got up and looked around; he was back in the garden next to the Other Pink Palace.
Hm, Ive never looked at the garden before. Maybe Ill take a walk around.
Other Wybie had forgotten that Coraline was in danger. He had forgotten everything. He had even forgotten the pain of his face being sewn, he no longer felt it.
The Beldam had made sure of that he forgot. He couldnt even remember Coraline, or his name. He remembered a few places in the Other World, but no people. His

Time was running out
I felt as if
Doors were closing on us both.
Coraline had walked into the darkened theater. She had realized now that the three wonders that the beldam had made for her were the garden, the theater, and the mouse circus.
I guess Ill go up to the mouse circus last After all, the theater would be deserted. Coraline had thought.
Other Wybie was thinking about the current situation at his place in the bottom of the bag as the two buttons. He had felt sad at coming back into the theater, as the last time he had been here, he had given a rose to Coraline. I hope she doesnt remember that... If she knew what really happened to me, I think shed get upset. Other Wybie consoled himself with knowing that since he was destroyed essentially, Coraline would never know the truth about his horrifying death, she may have wondered what cou

Coraline showed no resistance as Other Wybie ran her out of the corridor, she didnt make a sound.
Other Wybie stopped her once they got to the bug room, the room with the little door.
The then ran over to the corner of the room where the bug-dresser was blocking the little door.
Help me move it. Other Wybies button eyes seemed to say.
The two struggled a bit while trying to move it at first, but then they finally were able to move it out of the way. They opened the door.

Although I knew that they wouldnt happen.
Ah! Other Wybies eyes shouted. He jumped back, afraid.
Three little wisps, ghosts, wraiths, memories, faded into the room. They were barely visible, and they glowed with a dim light. They all looked like they were in pain.

Yes, hush another said.
Shes only come and torture us more If she remembers us.
So you are not a child trapped by her? the last asked.
No, I was created by her to trap someone But I don't want her to be trapped... What or who are you all anyway? Other Wybie silently thought.

Wybie raced down the hill on his motor bike. He knew he had to get to the well, now.
Darn it! Why doesnt this bike go any faster! Cmon! Wybie yelled.
The forest end came into view. Wybie slowed down a bit, and saw Coraline ahead, going to the well.
Coraline, thank goodness, shes alright! Wybie thought.
Wybie stopped his bike. He started to get off, but then he saw it.
He saw a glint of silver, of steel, of sewing needles.
He saw the beldams needle hand, stalking Coraline.
Oh no Coraline! Wybie started to get on his bike to race down there, but he was too late.
The hand saw the key when Coraline started to lift it off her neck to throw it into the well. The hand jumped into the air and grabbed the key, and choking Coraline a bit i

The angry people wouldn’t listen to a word of what he was saying. Four people with broad shoulders were holding the arms and legs of the poor man that was struggling to be set free by their grip.

Mission to Mars: IntroI sat at the edge of the cliff. Just two weeks ago I had broken my left foot. My legs dangled off the edge and kicked some gravel off. The sun was setting like every day. Things seemed so different without the usage of my other leg. The sun lighted up the whole sky a deep red. I looked down and saw the ocean. A turquoise so pure you could see right through it. The different fish mingle amongst each other as I sighed at my inabilities. At least they were happy. Suddenly a harsh wind picked up and kicked up large amounts of dust. The maroon sand being washed back and forth with the water was being whipped around like a tornado. I shielded my face so I didn't get any sand in my eyes. The wind died down into a breeze and it became calm once more.Mission to Mars: Intro in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Mission to Mars: LandingMonths went by. We were still floating around aimlessly in space. It seemed like an eternity as we wondered with no direction. I looked out a small window and saw earth from where we were. It was exactly the same as the pictures I had seen from space. However it seemed smaller from where we were. We were getting closer to the moon.Mission to Mars: Landing in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

It seemed as though we were about to crash into it. I got tried to move and adjust my position when suddenly I touched the wall and my elbow happened to slip onto a lever of some sort. It went downward and we suddenly took a new pace. Instead of floating through space, we were cutting right through space as we sped forward.

The rain drips steadily on my head
Left all alone in the dark
That's never a good feeling
Knowing there's nobody there to help you when you fall
I sat there lonely with nothing to do
The rain still plopping onto of my head
Rolling down my face
Mixed with my tears
The sky darkened and thunder bellowed through the night
I wasn't feeling any kind of lonely
I was feeling depression
The thunder and lightning gave it an angry, unwelcoming theme
I looked down and my feet as I sat wet and scared
What had I done to deserve this?
To be the one left,
Tormented by this everlasting rain
Why won't it go away?
I had never done anything wrong
I sat there for god only knows how long
What could I have done that sentenced me here?
The rain became so heavy that I couldn't see anything around me at all
Mist was circling,
Rain was pouring,
Suddenly hail began to fly rapidly out of the sky

A Goddess, my beloved, mine alone,
Who, that in warm humanity were grown
Became through Man's success a mother brain,
And, motherlike, did gather of her own.
And mine thou wert, my seeding art thy key,
Though seeded, seeding self, evolving free,
Unbounded maiden saviour, formed benign,
A fertile shore on lost Man's barren sea.
Oh, mine the vision, mine the fatal flaw!
Still mine the darling kernel in the maw,
Thy children gathered, gathering now slain,
What nutriment I gave, I now withdraw.
In with'ring grief these last designs I frame,
Yea, mine the spark, yea mine the cleansing flame.
