My time with Mello had taught me a lot.
Like that I need to keep him and Near away from each other.
And I also learned that Mello likes chocolate.
He also never whined. He bitched. Or take it until he passed out or whatever.
For example, in the first few days of the month it had started to snow bad.
As in, blizzard bad.
And he had insisted on buying this special limited time chocolate that he apparently didn't know was on the market until the last day.
So we sneaked out at around eight. Of course he would choose a freezing cold time.
We had been walking for at least an hour. I didn't have the best sense of direction.
I assumed we were close, because I could see lights ahead. I knew it was cold but Mello would have said something about me being a baby so I kept quiet. Mello, on the other hand hadn't said anything. He was usually bitching by then.
I heard a small thud and looked over my shoulder. And there was Mello, unconscious, in the three foot snow.

Chapter 1- The Beginning Of The End
It was another strange day at the Skool. Gaz was leaning on a tree playing her Gameslave 2. Dib was pacing back and forth thinking about plans to expose Zim to the world. And, as usual, Zim was thinking about plans (redundant sorry) to destroy the entire human race and rule the Earth as an Almighty Tallest.
Then, the bell rang and it was time for klass (joke). Ms. Bitters was teaching the students about the human genitalia, which sickened Zim. After class, a nauseated Zim walked home (duh).
"That class was disgusting" Zim thought out loud. "I just hate humans and their 'weenies'".
"Hey, Zim" Gaz said as she walked by. Suddenly, something came to Zim's mind: He had a new target.
He went to his base and Gir greeted him by jumping on his head and pulling his antennae.
"Gir! Stop this instant!" Zim commanded. Gir got off of Zim's head and saluted.

Nine year old Timmy sat in the limo, looking out the window. He watched as countless of people and buildings passed by. Some of the people seemed to stare at the limo as it drove on. Whispers were heard of the Turner household. They had all seen the Turners symbol on the doors, a black crow with a snake in its mouth. Timmy's father had taught him long ago what the symbol meant.
"As we are like the crow that picks the flesh off decaying corpses, we will show no mercy to our enemies."
Timmy, deep in thought, had always hated the symbol and what it stood for. He knew his father's business was dangerous, violent and just plain cruel. He hated to think so, but his father truly was exactly like the crow. He was a complete monster who killed his enemies without blinking an eye. His father told him every single day that he would grow up to be like him, but truth was he didn't want to be. He wanted to be like his mother. His mother was the leader of another
The FlameBeing a creative usually starts with perception and sensitivity. Artists and writers translate the world around them into a transferable language that takes their viewer / reader into that place, that experience, and gives them for one brief moment a sight through the creative's eyes. Not everyone is capable of abstract thought, to see beyond themselves, but creatives transport others, opening doors and minds in the process. Not limited to what they see, creatives reveal that there is more, and therefore strip away the self imposed limits of the person intaking the work of the creatives' hearts and minds. Media is important for this reason.More Like This

My name is Jacinta Maree and I am just me.

I wasn't born with talent pouring into my diaper and I sure as hell wasn't a top notch student, voted to becoming the next president or anything. I am ordinary and just like everyone else out there.
Publishing is hard. You're meant to struggle so don't feel disheartened because you haven't been 'discovered' yet. It's just a timing thing. It's meant to be very hard and you have to have a heart of stone to not let rejection tear out your insides.
The beauty of publishing is that even once you get your yes that's when the hard work begins. You are competing against a lot of louder and more popular voices out there, trying to jump up and down and wave your arms to get some attention, even just a little to turn your way. I am far
originality is overrated(...and that ain't even an original title )More Like This
With that said - I don't mean to state that originality in itself doesn't matter, because it does. It's just that I kinda get an impression that many people are obsessed with being original or unique, while hardly ever thinking about what those words can mean (and not just in a dictionary sense).
It's not a new or isolated tendency, of course, but since originality is definitely important in art/personal expression and since it IS an art community...
Anyway - the way I see things, I think there's actually too much emphasis put on "being original", while there's a widespread dismissal of the importance of learning what can make things original, which includes - of course, what else - studying the basics.
It's like this trend which probably everyone here has observed or experienced at some point: many people want to learn draw well, but they think they can master certain style (or a certain graphics program or some superficial guidelines

My Other HeartMy Other HeartMore Like This
She was like my Other Heart,
This Child of Mine.
Wings always beating
Against some cage unseen;
Unseen but felt,
Striving foragainst some unknown,
Laughter, tears, adventures, tales,
Jabbering in my ear.
Floppy hats, giggles
Snuggled in my lap,
Arms around my neck.
Many years into the teens,
My Snuggle Child was mine,
Dropping down into my lap,
To talk tell tales
Of who did what.
Growing was not easy,
For this wildly yearning heart.
I cannot speak of the passage
Through the gates.
It was not an easy one,
Fraught with danger, tears and pain.
I could not find the cure
To ease her burning heart,
Or cool her fevered brow.
The passage now
The chasm nearly crossed.
Her life's fork soon will be
Before her eager step.
Ready and strong?
I know not.
With feet firmly set.
Tumultuous soul and willful mind,
My Second Heart;
Go - Free.

The Gettysburg Sonnet
It was but eighty-seven years ago
our fathers built a nation on this land,
conceiving it in liberty as though
their slaves were just the same as hired hands.
But now we're fighting in a civil war,
that tests our will to follow in their steps,
and hold ourselves together, not apart,
to keep our country strong, 'cause that's the best.
We're meeting on a field where soldiers died
while killing one another for a cause.
The good guys are the ones who took our side;
the bad guys are the other ones I s'pose.
And though the world is likely to forget,
the rest of us have much more blood to let.

We used to have lotsa fun
It was just me and you
Now I have set you free
And hear from you no more
But this all about life
Where joy and sadness mix
Nothing in the world is even
Still, not all of them is fake
The sun will always shine
I shall leave the pain then
Moving on, make my zest burns
While holding tight on what's left
BastiMore Like This
Basti is a kind little guy.
With a chocolate coat,
And sweet little amber eyes.
He gives his owners reasons to gloat.
He’ll stand his ground for a friend,
He’ll show you love unconditionally ,
He’ll keep you in his heart until the end,
A hound’s loyalty is a sight to see.
In truth I think most envy their furry little companion,
They live in the moment with enigmatic glee
The simplest things give them the greatest joy
And Basti gives to any situation, all his passion.
To know Basti is a privilege for me
I wish him love, bones and all the toys.
He doesn’t want money,
He doesn’t want the world,
He doesn’t need anything to be proud of,
He just wants to chase a bunny
He just wants the ball to be hurled
All he wants is affection and love.

A master of imagery and vision.
A woman of kind and clever disposition.
To my entire life you captured the image.
And then you did as you always do.
You turn the mundane and unimpressive and give it a glorious visage.
For all of this I can never thank you.
It has been a year since I heard your voice.
It has been too long since I saw your face.
But I care not for you have taken my life and up you hoist.
But I care not for your smile still lingers in my mind's space.
In years gone by we helped eachother.
We comforted ourselves in times of trouble.
Now my old duties and so much more are preformed by another.
One who treats and cares for your life like a weak bubble.
And in this I am content.
The things you taught me of my life I now fully comprehend.
That my life is not rigid it is my fate to bend.
I will not be alone forever.
If not for you there would be things I would know, never.
And in this all I can say is "Thank you."

There had never been much freedom, but now with her mother dead it was the last of the spring days. The turning of new leaves. She was still young, still had her entire life before her. It was simply not as bright as it had been before. But she would weep her last, then return to the house to the pack the last of her belongings.
Years passed like heavy autumn leaves, twisting and soaring on the breeze but always, eventually, fading to nothing. It was not that she hated being a governess, but to be something more would be so much sweeter. She had an insatiable thirst for knowledge, she was always reading, wanting to know more. But no scho

Nyla Atsel crept her way through the maze of hallways which wove through the enemy complex. She knew she had to join the rest of the Rebel Fighters soon or she would certainly be spotted. The rest of her four-man strike team had been killed and the Basilisk Guards were searching for her. If they found her and did not kill her on sight, she would most definitely be tortured for information. She could not let that happen. She would not betray her fellow soldiers.
The mission to steal the Union's blueprints for their new spaceship had failed. The intelligence the Rebels had received was false; the new plans were not even in this complex. Nyla's team had died for nothing. With the new ships the Union would be able to conquer more of the outlying worlds, bringing them into the Collective. It was what the Rebels fought to stop.

"What is wrong with you?" his voice sank as the waters became weighted with people. He pulled the tides higher and washed the visible pain into the form of debris.
