The KeeperThe stars bloom, while a sun diesMore Like This
The moon shadow impales us
A scythe was used, their heads are now gone
Taken by the keeper, the one who takes the souls of dying suns
The dark matter weeps for the loss of another sun
From there grief dark energy was born
The universe was never the same, expanding at an accelerated rate
As small as we are we don’t feel the change
Ignorance’s that is to blame
The moon angers and withdraws further from us every year
In its rages it reaches the sun, a supernova appears
And as for us we disappears
Our souls taken by the keeper
The keeper of the forgotten ones

The earth rumbles the sky shakes
The moon eases back into it's secret place
The sun bows it gets cold
The world as we know it will be no more
The seas color is still yet unknown
The places we once love there are no more.
We as humans destroy the world even the trees fail to grow.
The wind spirals the clouds cry
I guess that's their way of saying good bye.

I just want to do a quick reminder about a rule we have, you can't sell or offer slots to a Tokota that isn't uploaded/doesn't have its AoA's. This means no design a pup and get a slot to said pup, or do 1 AoA and get a slot to a pup. You have to either have someone do all three AoA's for a slot, so they are only waiting on themselves to use it, OR offer slots to a Tokota who already has its AoA's. I've seen this rule being broken quite often lately, its put in place to keep people from having to wait an extremely long time to use slots.

She reached her down in her pocket and pulled a golden necklace with an oval-formed locket, with small diamonds around it and a special wavy pattern too, hanging from it with a matching golden colour as the chain.
It was a gift from him. Her friend. The psychokinetic male who seemed to haunt her mind. Every time he was around, she always felt the same very small jump in her ice cold rock heart. A weird feeling she wanted to figure out what was.
'Why is it so difficult to find out what I feel?' She thought as she stared down in her hands, stroking her fingers over the oval-shaped golden locket. Her mind was racing through every possible emotion but Blaze never knew how they felt and just passed them with no thoughts, no worries of them.

Stunning ivory eyes finally came into focus. They glistened as water balanced on the edge, threatening to pour out. He was occupied by something in the distance, something that was unaware of his presence lingering like a bad odor smell. The more he gazed at the girls beauty the more his mood darkened. He cursed himself at how much valuable time he wasted on her, just standing there, watching her from afar.
She was so lovely, with short lilac fur that looked as light as blossoms, amber orbs that almost matched his and the type of eyes that made him forget everything, including himself. And a delicate, but firm voice that sounded like a melody to his ears. Her voice alone caused his legs to wobble like jelly.
“Silver?” His head jerked instantly towards the source of calling, the sound of his own name wasn’t enough to awaken him from his daydreaming state. Silver frowned at pink hedgehog who approached.

As the bubbles continued flickering a feminine figure quickly metallized from underneath the water. Kagome awoke with a jolt as if she had been electrocuted by a live wire, she abruptly sat up in the bathtub, but when she urgently scanned the room with watery eyes, her vision cleared to see that there was no one there.More Like This
From across the room, she spotted a small jar placed on the table next to the sink. It glared at her blankly as it rested there as still as a possum playing dead.

Lameon’s colors are blue and purple. And, if you haven't figured out already, Grox are bad. Now here are the details of the war, it’s over spice. Our planet, Lameon, has the most rare spice in the world, black. The Grox’s planet, Zanem, has no spice. Our galaxy uses spice for just about everything.

Immovable to change for the rest of their lives.

why I choose to be the same.
