Today I learned that Pluto is a PlanetIn the fourth grade, I was told under no uncertain terms that Pluto was a planet. There were nine of them: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto. If you missed one of them on the exam, you'd be knocked down 11.1 repeating points. You could not get an A on this exam, if you did not know that Pluto was a planet. I was told that Christopher Columbus sailed on three ships to prove that the world was round. Under no uncertain terms were these stone cold facts.More Like This
In 2005, scientists decided that Pluto was not a planet. Over the past fifteen years I've heard six different stories about Christopher Columbus in my course of education, and I've gotten another one from the Discovery Channel, and yet another one from the internet that beckons the question of why we learned about Christopher Columbus at all. Or, if we must, why didn't we learn about the diseases that he managed to spread among the Native American people. These uncertain facts were under no certain t

The sphere was getting unbearably huge.
During the millennia, he had become - well, not contented, but resigned at least, to his situation, when suddenly, the dome had expanded, become spherical. He hadn't been prepared, and had almost dropped it, the rounded sides slipping in his hands.
When he squinted through it, he saw the world had changed. It was no longer floating on the sea, but rather, the sea was encompassing a green globe, resting in the center. The stars on the sphere twinkled and poked out from the dark matter, occasionally outshone by the sun as it passed underneath them on its journey around this new body.
With a sigh, he placed his hands a little wider apart, steadying the new world above him.
Earthbound - page 2 Finally free of Tossin’s clutches for the day, Taeira and Korren hurried down to the courtyard to meet up with their friends before supper. Maybe they would have time for a game of earthbound. They came down the stone stairs leading to the inner court yard, just in time to hear Devi complain, ”And I just don’t see why Father wants anything to do with someone like him!” She shook her fair head and looked between the two boys in front of her for confirmation, hands aggressively in her sides.More Like This
”What’s wrong?” Korren asked, coming to a standstill behind her.
Laren sighed. ”Same old. Devi’s complaining about the Keeper,” he said, his usual, good-natured smile a little worn as he glanced up at Dann next to him.
”Well, he’s a monster!” Devi said, turning fiercely on

Elegant limbs made up her body. [H/C] locks framed an innocently featured face. [E/C] orbs met with onyx ones for a few moments.
“Sorry,” she said to him.
She wore a mid-thigh skirt with a black sweater. Her skin looked smooth as ice and glowed in an almost otherworldly manner. It was both beautiful and a little strange simultaneously.
“It’s fine,” he told her, dismissing her apology with two words.
“I didn’t think you saw me.”
Her voice slide over him like beads of water over silk.
“Of course I saw you,” he told her.
They were standing in the bar’s cleaning closet. Levi was on his way to get windex, when the girl entered the room almost immediately after he did.
“Mind if I come back tomorrow?” she asked him.
“To the cleaning closet? Yes. To the bar? No.”
The woman laughed and disappeared around the corner as quickly as she appe

It is such a perplexing colour. Its meaning switched from here to there. Red roses, red cherries, red blush and red passion; red blood, opened veins and red shame.
A silent wish to turn white. To turn pure without the middle autumnal flashes of orange.
The colour of fire and sunset, the colour of blooming flowers.
What is the colour of love? Red or pink?
You thought for a while about this matter, red blood dripping out. If love truly related to red, if your love for your husband was red, then only one question could prove it and get you past this current gruesome situation of red.
"Levi! Did you get my tampons?!"
Love was truly red.

You break the guised indifference, gaze shifting to the man on the other end. He currently scans the laminated menu with scrutiny, finger tapping restlessly on the table.
You are more nervous at this moment than that panel interview, you realized.
Your heart jumps and you let out a faint squeak, this time meeting his intrigued gaze. You feel warmth crawling up your cheeks, and he leans further, steel hues softening beneath knitted brows.
"You don’t seem well..."
And you watch in slow motion as his palm hovers inches above your forehead. Sadly, your ninja senses thought it was the perfect timing to suddenly kick in, the sound of your chair sliding against the wooden floor earns some turned heads from the nearby tables.
"You’re scaring teacher [First], Papa."
"I’m not, Eren. I’m just checking if she’s -"
"Nah. She’s just blushing. Maybe she likes you!"
Cue in awkwardness.

The sun fell behind the white-capped mountains as it expanded its glow, then slowly guttered like a candle. The branches were bare, the snow crunched beneath your feet, and the grass was a white-yellowed gray. You feared winter—you know what it brought. It brought a cold upon the valley like an oncoming death, glacial wind breaking through the thin barrier on human bodies, and the lack of animals to hunt and feed on. But most of all, it was the darkness. It was a darkness that was so complete that even the pale-lit hours would be choked and succumbed.
The night clouds remained high and thin, and the wind ripped the dead sticking leaves off of the tips of branches. You thought of the terrible cold like Death's hands prickling at your neck and skin as you felt trapped in the wilderness outside the walls. Your breathing shallow. Cold puffs of breath nipping at your nose.
Your comrades strode underneath the naked trees. Numb. Shivering. Exhausted. Dehydrated. Cold.

It was a lazy summer evening, with the orange-red sky blanketing the earth and a yellow sphere of sun setting in the horizon.
You laid on your bed, twirling a lock of coffee brown hair of your beloved boyfriend, Eren Jaeger. You kept sighing audibly every once in a while to grab his attention. Your (e/c) orbs were slightly drooping while you had your legs raised high towards the ceiling, swaying them to and fro in rhythm. Yes, you were bored. Hell bored!
Your parents were busy with a business trip to Paris so spending the day with them was no option. Your mind had pondered over Hanji or Levi but you quickly shoved the thought out as soon as it came.

It seemed as if it was destined for her to bump into him that one simple morning in the midst of delivering a packet of papers to her superiors. The papers scattered across the room as she furrowed her brows and parted her lips to emit a snarky retort, yet upon seeing his astonished bright emerald hues, she stopped and murmured out a soft apology. Maybe it was after that morning, when he gathered the papers and carried them for her to her destination, that they began to notice one another a bit more. If it was subtle eye contact across the room, a small wave, or even calling out each others names to say good morning.
Yet on the night he found
