"Why is it that something bad seems to happen to us every other day?" Ian asked as he climbed into bed.
"You haven't been around as long as I have," Bugs told him.
"Don't worry, Ian," Lola said. "You've got me, and Bugs and Jack to protect you."
Ian smiled. "I'm so lucky."
Lola kissed him on the forehead. "We're the lucky ones."
"It's the feet," Bugs said with a smirk. He and Lola looked at each other and remembered that night
"Almost there, Mrs. Bunny," the doctor assured here.

Penelope was washing the dishes at her home while Pepe and Pauline went out to get some dessert. Her paws went through the motions, but her mind was somewhere else entirely.
"How will they take it?" she asked herself out loud, then took a breath. "I've been hiding it for too long. I've just got to tell them."
"Mama!" Pauline shouted, running through the door. "We got vanilla ice cream cake!"

"No, I'm not," Penelope said, taking his hand in both of hers. "In fact, I'm great." She paused, then spoke.
"I'm pregnant again."
There was a pause as Pepe and Pauline stared at her. Pepe broke into a wide smile. "You are?"

Quick note before we begin: this story features Athena Coyote, Wile E. and Road's daughter (Yay! ). I know she was just born in the last story: we'll say that takes place before the events of "Looney Halloween" and that Athena was maturing during the month of October.
Athena is now in the same age group as Ian, Piper, Pauline and Junior. She is a blue-gray coyote with blue eyes and shoulder-length brown hair. She actually does wear clothing, usually a purple blouse and short skirt. She has her father's intelligence and her mother's speed. More on her later.
For now, just enjoy an idea that I've had hanging around on the back of my mind for a while.

Elsewhere in the Toontown Forest, Lola and Bugs’ plan to ambush Benny had backfired.
“I’ll kill you!” Benny shouted, racing through the trees with Lola and Bugs right in front of him, firing wildly with his shotgun. Spotting a hole, Bugs and Lola dived into it. Benny raced up and pointed his shotgun down the hole, continuing to fire.
That is, until Bugs shoved a carrot into the barrel of the shotgun. When Benny hit the trigger again…BOOM!
Blackened and now disarmed, Benny snarled and walked away, thinking. “I can’t trick them out, so if I walk away, they may come out. But I’m no match for them hand-to-hand…maybe…”
Then he heard someone tramping through the wood. Hiding behind a tree, he spotted a hunter—a tall redheaded man with a thick beard—walking towards him, peering down the sights of a shotgun.

Sunrise Hospital, 29 hours later...
Gretchen was fast asleep: she'd been sleeping for the past 6 hours. I didn't blame her: what she'd just been through would have tired anyone out. Even asleep, drenched in sweat, and dressed in a plain blue dress, she looked gorgeous.
But she wasn't the only gorgeous skunk in the room. The other one was wide awake, and I couldn't stop smiling at her.
Gretchen sighed softly and turned her head. I reached out and stroked her face with the back of my hand. She slowly woke up, her eyes fluttering. "Jack?" she said softly.
I kissed her sweaty forehead. "You did it, honey."
"I did?" Gretchen said.
"Yes, and you did great," I said.

A scene so awful, and so disgusting occurred against the concrete wall.
A woman shrunk, defenseless, against the uncontrollable urges of a hungry man.
She thrashed like a wild, and howled into the wind, just begging, just pleading for him to stop.
But he didn't, and he pounded into her like a rabbit in heat. Not stopping, nor caring about the life he was ruining.
Her mascara pooled down her flushed cheeks, and dripped into the growing puddle of blood that grew on the concrete, topped with other bodily fluids.
Afterward, He left, and she remained.
Those blue, bright eyes remained in her mind. Those eyes she wanted like a drug, those eyes she could never had.
That man ruined her life just as much as she ruined his. She told this to the police, the bit about her being raped. She looked the part, wounded and emotional, she played it well. Too well.
Because of the rain that had fallen after the rape, the evidence

And he could almost just taste her kindness,

Maybe he could get away from this humiliation,
because the sin he was to commit now,
went against his morals, and to no one he would mention.
And the words flew out of his mouth like water,
and suddenly the bruises and cuts on his body,
stung harder and harder.
Because he could process the look of disgust on her face,
and before he could stop himself,
the door to freedom slammed in his face.

“Go to a homeless house” she continued,
“This is only a woman's shelter”.

whose lives are stolen from them,

I'm a boy, not a monster. It's almost plausible that me, a human being, be considered a monster, an inhuman creature who enjoys blood lust and violence for sport. That's not me, i'm the exact opposite. However, if you, Miss Feminist, can assume that I, a normal boy, a monster, than shall I assume the same for you?
No, I can't, because when I do, the entire world turns against me. Above me is a cloud, and the cloud is named “Society”. It whispers words into my ears, fills my head with such thick smoke that the substance absorbs into my brain. I'm blinded by your views and have been stricken mute by your ideals, by the fact that to you all, to women, to the world I'm a rapist by blood, a born killer. That I deserve to be walked over, trodden on, regarded as nothing but trash. And I believe this, as the cloud thickens and the smoke darkens, I believe everything you say.
Why? Because Society tells me so. You are society, Miss Feminist, the world will take your side.

Please stop playing the victim.
Boys are not always the cause of your problems, chances are, you are. You just refuse to acknowledge it.
The more you blame them, the more bitter and spiteful you will become. Stop destroying yourself from the inside because you cannot take responsibility for the mess you've created.
Stop playing the victim. Get up and do something about it. Crying won't help, nor will hating the opposite sex.
If you're tired of being called a slut because you love breaking hearts, than stop sleeping around. If you're tired of being called a bitch, than stop treating boys like shit. If you're tired of being treated as an object, gain some self-esteem. If you're tired of starving yourself because of a break up, that's your problem. We told you to eat, but you won't listen.

He's not evil on the outside, just deep down in his soul.
Just after 11:00 am
Dib felt kind of overwhelmed by all the new aliens, and he'd only seen two dozen of the 630 experiments so far. He needed to focus on one alien at a time to keep his head from spinning too fast. Dr. Jookiba, who had created all the genetic experiments and collaborated with Irkens, was the obvious one to watch.
Lilo, though Dib wasn't sure what to make of her. She was nice. And not in a creepy way like Keef. Lilo actually listened to him, and she liked monster movies and mummies. She and Stitch had even fought an evil alien, although Gantu sounded dumber than Zim. But Lilo still seemed too trusting. What if Jumba was biding his time, waiting for the perfect opportunity to Well, Dib had no idea what the alien would do, but there was a good chance it would result in a wave of doom, or an explosion that would end life as he knew it, or any of his father's other cataclysmic prediction

About five in the evening
Outside the Membrane/Putchel house
Jumba and Pleakley filled Lilo in on everything that happened with Dib, and so Lilo decided to return to his house for damage control. She persuaded Stitch to stay home without much difficulty, since her pretext for going to Dib's house was to help unpack. Stitch behaved much better than he used to, but he still got bored easily, and Lilo didn't want him to make a mess or chew on left shoes. She didn't want to unpack either, but she remembered the advice Nani had given her when she was little: if you want friends, you have to be a good friend.
A few seconds after Lilo rang the doorbell, she glimpsed Dib's face in the window. Then he opened the door, looking rather surprised.
"Hey Lilo. What are you doing here?"
Lilo smiled, and now that there were no aliens around to distract Dib, he noticed how pretty she was, with her dark almond shaped eyes and sleek hair.
"I thought you guys could use some help unpacking," s

"…Yin and Yang had a baby too. She's really cute," said Lilo, pulling Stitch away from a cellphone kiosk as they walked through the airport.
"Uh-huh," grunted Reuben from behind the shopping bags he was carrying.
"But not as cute as Gigi," added Mertle.
Lilo rolled her eyes. Mertle always made everything about herself and her "dog."
"Gigi's not cute, she has a mustache for Pete's sake," said Reuben with a snort.
Mertle straightened her back and clenched her fists. "At least she looks normal."
"You emphasized the wrong word, kid. She looks normal."
Lilo and Stitch laughed at this. Dib chuckled too, although he didn't fully understand what made it funny.
"What, are you saying Mertle's dog isn't normal?" asked Dib.
"Oh, didn't they tell you? I bet Mertle doesn't want ya to know."
"Well - Stop lookin' at me like that, Mertle. Nosy woulda told him sooner or later. Anyhow, Gigi is actually experiment 007."

But there is no consensus on The Lion King 1 ½. Some fans like it, but it seems like more fans would rather pretend it doesn't exist. It certainly doesn't get much attention here on DA in the Lion King Fan Club. In the Nostalgia Chick's recent top 5 list of "least awful" Disney sequels, she mentioned TLK 1.5 only to contrast it to TLK 2. She didn't like it because it "***** all over the original." Then she went on to praise Cinderella III for being self-aware.
But TLK 1.5 is the most self-aware Disney movie ever made. It's satire, so the entire point is to rip apart the original. It gives TLK the Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment, and there's nothing wrong with that. Some commenters have called TLK 1.5 the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead to TLK's Hamlet.

Dib didn’t have the grace to look guilty. Instead he looked surprised and bemused.
“I didn’t think you’d care.”
“What?” shrieked Lilo. “Of course I care, you idiot! I love you!”
“Is it true that you and Lilo are dating?” asked Nosy. “’Cause French Fry said that you two are always eating shave ice together, and Gigi said-”
“Look,” interrupted Dib, “I’ve run out of money to bribe you to shut up, but can you please shut up anyway?”
“Here.” Lilo handed Dib a tube of sunscreen. “Don’t forget it next time. It hurts me to look at you.”
Dib knew he should feel sorry for making Lilo worry, but all he felt was joy.

Pleakley had told him Lilo and Stitch were shopping at the airport with friends, but he couldn't say which store. Reuben thought that Nani should let Lilo get a mobile phone. It wasn't so bad to just wander around the old place, though. The airport had a quaint, homey charm, not to mention Joe's Subs.
Reuben's vision was sharper than he let on, so it wasn't too long before he spotted something bright blue in a little sunglasses store. It was Stitch in his Kenny disguise: bleach blond wig and orange shirt and shorts. Lilo was next to him in her red sun dress. Reuben strolled over to them, munching on his turkey sub.

When Cobra arrived at the Bed-but-not-breakfast, Zim's eyes grew wide. He covered his antennae with his claws. Then he lowered his hands and slid open a panel on his right glove, revealing a red button.
Cobra raised his eyebrow. "No need for that. I'm not going to torture you. I'm going to have Reuben transport you back to Irk."
"Wait, what?" Reuben's head twitched as if shaking off fatigue.
"Someone has to take Zim back to Irk and deliver the message to the Tallest that Earth is under the protection of the Galactic Federation. We can't trust him to go back by himself."
"No!" said Zim. "The Tallest will think I failed!"
"Not Zim's fault," said Stitch.

The man was obsessed with crispy slices of bread to the point that he was reluctant to pursue other interests.
Membrane put his hand on his collar. “An intriguing concept. But how would it block nuclear radiation?”
“Do you not already have other materials for that?” asked Jumba, throwing his hands in the air.
“Yes, but Super Toast is the only radiation shield that’s also biodegradable!”
Fortunately, Jumba’s phone rang at that moment, rescuing him from the inane conversation.

“The adults will handle it,” Nani said firmly.
Lilo met Stitch’s dark eyes. They both knew that the creature they had heard that night probably had something to do with the ship’s disappearance. But if they told any of the others what they’d heard, they’d have to explain why they were in the grounded vessel.
Nani nodded to Stitch, oblivious to his dilemma. “And Stitch, and any cousin that wants to help.” Nani shoved Lilo’s backpack into her arms and shooed her out the door. “Have fun at school. Learn a lot.”

"I'm not s'posed to tell you that the ship is that way." The disguised robot pointed his branchy arm over the next hill, where the trees started to thin and the soil was rockier.
Still carrying the little robot, Stitch started to walk up the hill, but Reuben grabbed his shoulder. "Wait a minute, he could be leading us inta a trap."
Stitch stopped and stared at the robot. He didn't look intelligent or hi-tech, but maybe that in itself was a trick. On the other hand, he seemed really random, and only mentioned the ship after Reuben brought it up.

"Okay, but we gotta be smart about it. And we gotta figure out what ta do with that robot."

After last time’s little treatment of “What the F***???!!!”, I decided to soothe my mind by reviewing a few Disney movies. That oughta clear my head of all those horrendous images. The first Disney movie I’ll review is one of the shiniest jewels ever to come out of Walt Disney’s Treasure Chest of Animation; the one where a lovely girl soothed a monster with her love. I’m talking of course, about Beauty and the Beast.

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!!!
Mad Monster Party came out in 1967. The movie opens in the castle of Baron Boris von Frankens

Greetings, fellow Deviants, I have some news,
This is another episode of SithVamp Reviews.
So listen closely and don't move an inch,
For I'll review the 60s cartoon about the Grinch.
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!

I came across this animated series from the late 90s. The story of this show is about four Mummies with Superpowers: Ja-Kal, Rath, Armon and Nefertina, who protect an annoying kid called Presley from an evil Mummy: Scarab. The Mummies protect Presley, because he is an Egyptian Prince reincarnated. What do I think of this show? Finally there's a show where the Mummies are NOT the villains. It's pretty good.
Favorite character: Nefertina, Armon
Most hated character: Presley. Sorry, but he is REALLY annoying!

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!

It’s merry old October
Everything is getting scarier now
Until the month is over!

It’s getting colder day by day
But we don’t mind, cause this is the time
Of our favorite holiday!
The Halloween season cometh again
The night is full of fear
No time for the old man in red,
Pine trees or reindeer
No stupid bunnies hopping around,
Chocolate eggs can’t be seen

And the Leprechauns can run and hide,
Cause tonight is Halloween!
The Halloween season
Is coming to Denbourne
The scariest time of the year is coming,
See the Jack-o-Lanterns burn!
Time to put on your disguise,
Be a vampire, a ghost or a clown
You better get ready and try not to scream
Cause Halloween is coming to our town!
It’s time to get in costume again,
Everyone gets a turn

The rocket had a rough landing. "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!", Everyone was yelling. When it finally stopped sliding, everyone was scattered everywhere, but coincidentially and unfortinatley, Dixie landed on Diddy. The bad part, everyone saw this. Dixie just stared into Diddy's eyes. Diddy stared back for ten seconds, and closed his eyes, and turned away, because he was blushing so much, his face was redder than a tomato. "Aw, don't turn away Diddy, something like this happens like once in a lifetime.", Drumstick joked. Diddy just coughed. Dixie finally got up and helped Diddy up, who still had a red face.

They went into the shallow water near the Wizpig Mountain for a wash down. "So...Are we really going through with this?", Timber asked Diddy. "Maybe...We'll be lucky if everyone else wakes up before Dixie and Pipsy do. If that happens then we don't have to tell them.", Diddy said while shaking and drying off. "Well guess what? We are.", said Dixie. Diddy and Timber looked up and saw Dixie and Pipsy standing in front of them. "Oh nuts!", The boys said. "We just got up and heard some talking.", Pipsy said.

He was practicly scarred to death. "Timber! Are you alright?", Pipsy asked running to him. Timber looked at Pipsy for a minute to make sure he wasn't dreaming. "(pant)...(swallow)...I-I think so...", Timber replied. Timber was making that breathing sound when someone's scared or is about to cry. Pipsy just moved closer to him. She was right at his side. "Are you sure?", Pipsy asked, a little worried. Timber nodded. He also looked worried when he looked at Pipsy. "Uh, Timber, can I talk to ya for a sec?", Diddy asked.

"Oh I get it...", Diddy said. "Your STILL thinking of a way to get to Pipsy.". Timber nodded. "I...I just don't know what im supposed to say to her.", Timber said. Everyone else started to get up slowly. Everyone saw Diddy and Timber talking at the beach. "Y'know, ever since we started this, they've been talking to each other alot.", Dixie said.

"Taj? What are you doing here?", Timber asked. "Well, as you know, Wizpig attacked and kicked me off my mountain. See?". They all looked, and Taj's mountain became Wizpig's mountain, with his ugly mug on it. "He put himself in the mountain waiting for you to race him. The mountain won't open until you get all four amulet pieces. He brainwashed the animal racers and gave the pieces to them.", Taj said. "Right, so we have to race the animals and get the pieces from them right?", Krunch asked. "That's correct.", Taj said. "Oh, by the way Taj, have you seen Drumstick?", T.T. asked.

Ideal and RealReligion, morality, and ideals are all too often forced to the ground in order to seem real. They are so "regularized" that people eventually will neither care for them nor remember them.Ideal and Real in Philosophical More Like This
When something seems too ordinary we lose interest. But we know all too well that even the most ordinary-looking thing, when examined, has a richness and complexity the hides from the naked eye.
Individuality and uniqueness of thought do not necessarily lead one to be individual and unique.
Ideals are ideals because we desire to live up to them. "Ideals" that simply tells us we are simply fine as we are not only move us to do nothingthe probably make us worse.
We only recognize that we need or want to change when we see what we want to change into. Thus the musician is moved to be better by hearing something better. The artist is inspired by the artist who seems to capture light, mood, or weight better than he does. Is it not true that the same holds for a happy life?

Given the nature of this topic, I can't promise it will be easy nor can I promise it won't stir some passion in your heart. What I can promise is, as best as I can perform, an exposition and reasoned account on this subject. I know all too well that when dealing with relationships and life-long commitments one ought to tread carefully and lightly. Likewise, given your own state in life, you have perhaps experienced the many joys and sorrows of relationships for whatever reason. Given the ocean of variables of this topic, I sadly will only be able to share with you a pond or, more realistically, a puddle.
I will conduct my examination of marriage in the following manner: first I will examine the sacrament of marriage, second I will give some reflections on marriage that help us understand the married life and its significance, and lastly I will examine in brief the problem presented to us in gay marriage and the right to marr
Do We Need a New Language about Homosexuality?One of the more popular, misunderstood, and challenging problems Catholics face today is the topic of homosexuality. I think of the many great strides we as a Church and as a culture have taken in speaking about it. In the same way, neither side whether secular or religious, has spoken more clearly on the subject. Catholics, at the very least, have always been very good at making distinctions. The process of making distinctions is not just good philosophy and theology, but it also aids in our practical and charitable responses to what we experience.Do We Need a New Language about Homosexuality? in Philosophical More Like This
When we respond to homosexuality we should know what it is. Moreover, when someone is homosexual it does us little good to categorize that person according to preconceived notions about their sexual activity, sexual purity, or moral state. In fact I've usually seen these reactions as one's own personal, moral blindness than as a useful discussion geared towards understanding something so as to respond to it more effectively.
That being said
Marriage as StatusWhen marriage is viewed as a sacrament, the one who affirms gay marriage is simply wrong. But this is because the sacrament is clearly (or to some, narrowly) defined. There are those who do not recognize the sacred, however, and there are those who see no value the vocabulary of sacrament. That's fair, and it's also the world/culture we happen to live in. It requires those of us to who see it as both religious and social to further reflect on what we mean by marriage in the social sphere.Marriage as Status in Philosophical More Like This
Marriage as a legal concept is a status, and since many have condemned and pushed aside any religion—perhaps justly or unjustly—their main thrust in the arguments surrounding this situation is equal status among heterosexuals. It's not so much that I feel homo- and heterosexuals do not have equal status in the United States insofar as I think good strides have been made to reaffirm that homosexuals (all persons for that matter) are, in fact, human beings and treating them with digni

[For your benefit I have included the Gospel passage (Jn 6:16-21) below so you can place your mind in the proper place before reading this reflection]
When it was evening, the disciples of Jesus went down to the sea, embarked in a boat, and went across the sea to Capernaum. It had already grown dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But he said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” They wanted to take him into the boat, but the boat immediately arrived at the shore to which they were heading.
The Gospel writers were fond of relating 'on/by the water' scenes to their readers. Many significant events happen by the seashore: some of the Apostles are called, Jesus teaches great crowds, and he encounters the Apostles after the Resurrection.
In this instance—Jesus walking on water
The Freedom or Prison of ChoiceThe Freedom or Prison of Choice in Philosophical More Like This
The Sadduces, filled with jealousy, threw the Apostles in prison. We ought to ask ourselves who was really imprisoned.
At times we think it is pitiful to be poor, but the Lord hears the cry of the poor (cf. Psalm 34). The rich live in prisons of money, the prideful live in prisons of ambition, and the relativist lives in the prison of no boundaries.
“The powerful grow poor and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing” (Ps. 34:11)
“Blessed is the man who takes refuge in the Lord,” for that man is given true freedom. Upon reflection we discover that boundaries, rules, restrictions, and commandments were given to us not to restrict our freedom but to ensure it. At times these restrictions pain us, because restrictions cause tensions with our desires.
The one who believes that freedom is fulfilling every desire runs headlong towards a cliff and over, where there is no more freedom. The one who discerns the nature of his desires in light of God's
The Convenience of EqualityThe Convenience of Equality in Philosophical More Like This
The topic of marriage is no stranger to Americans in recent weeks. The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 split decision, ruled that DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) was unconstitutional because it failed to offer homosexuals “equal protection under the law” and that the purpose of DOMA is to “humiliate” and “injure” homosexuals who seek marriage.
No doubt a number of individuals celebrated the ruling, happy, perhaps, to see the archaic edifice of ‘traditional’ marriage burn and establish a sleek and modern “marriage” in its place. Many rejoiced at the new building, but many of us looked on and asked to see the building plans.
Arguments for “marriage equality” are many times the product of convenient reasoning. The typical strain of equality reasoning usually goes along the lines of this: We can’t expect everyone to go by one definition of marriage, nor should the government force one view over the other. Moreover, th

Normally, a student in Meg's shoes would be glad to be out of school and go home to a family who can offer endless moral support no matter what. However, Meg's family was never there for her. They even tried to ditch her the day she was born, like the whole universe was against her. She never knew why or how, but she was everybody's punching bag.
