Sucker Punch:: Guardian AngelEveryone has an angel.
A guardian who watches over us.
We can't know what form they'll take.
One day, old man.
Next day, little girl.
But don't let appearances fool you.
They can be as fierce as any dragon.
Yet they're not here to fight our battles.
but to whisper from our heart.
reminding that it's us...
lt's every one of us who holds
the power over the worlds we create..
We can deny our angels exist..
convince ourselves they can't be real.
But they show up anyway.
At strange places.
And at strange times.
They can speak through any character
we can imagine.
They'll shout through demons
if they have to...
challenging us to fight.

i’ll only be letting go.
the heart has valves
that constantly open and close
giving love, taking love.
and my best advice
is to be selfish.
know when you’ve had enough.
know when you deserve better.
close the valves and
keep some love for yourself.
know that you are perfect
even if you eat that second cheeseburger
because there’s magic in this world.
we’re proof of it.

Graduation DayGraduation Day:More Like This
They told us we would be alright...
We had fought with honour and won our titles.
We had overcome trials together -
Watching dozens of our siblings fall in the line of duty.
For this they had promised us, a wondrous welcome;
A bountiful world of adventure, with a myriad of paths.
All this, they said, awaited us in the stone cities.
Large metropolises, where the working folk resided...
There were hundreds of us, who made that journey.
Walking miles across the scorching desert,
Clinging to a hope of the fortunes beyond.
Yet what awaited us was not a promised land -
Nor was it a life based on the merit we had earned...
Instead we found ourselves quarantined,
Pitching tents of inexperience-
Huddling together for comfort and warmth;
As the great gates of employment stood eerily silent.

Methods of rationality reviewI used to think that fan-fictions are mostly silly, but to take a well known book like Harry Potter and to completely re-invent it, all while teaching people about rationality, science and reasoning?More Like This
That takes some serious writing skills.
I recommend you read Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality here as well:
Beware that it's not even concluded and that the unfinished story will probably leave you hanging at the last chapter.
Nevertheless it's a gread read.
I much prefer Eliezer Yudkowsky's Harry Potter to the original.
It's almost as if Harry Potter is replaced by someone like Ender from Ender's game, no longer someone who constantly suffers and complains, but someone who takes control/advantage of every possible situation.
One hundred and seven thumbs up.
Percy Jackson News Updates :)EDIT: All of the new covers are in the journal attached now so I'm re-submitting this so you guys can see themMore Like This
So there have been a couple of big things that have come up in the Percy Jackson world and I figured that you guys would want to know so...
1. The Son of Sobek is getting a sequel! It's called The Staff of Serapis and it's about Annabeth and Sadie!
Read an excerpt here: http://rickriordan.com/Files/Documents/StaffofSerapis_excerpt_trade_pbk.pdf
2. The original 5 Percy Jackson books are getting new covers! One will be released every day this week!! They are all done by John Rocco (the same guy who did all of the original covers) so I don't think we have much to worry about.
I will update this journal daily with the new covers as they come out so that pictures can be included:
Let me know what you guys think!
Yours in demigodishness,
