To Her Cunning MasterThe world is small, and time is short,
But that’s no excuse for such a sport.
This cunning, master, is a crime,
For which I’ll make sure you’re out of time.
I’ve no interest in this waste,
Your words, they sting—a sour taste.
I felt a cold chill when you entered the room,
You spoke only of debauchery and also of doom.
It is sad that you act in this way,
Hurtful badinage is all you say.
And your blandishment is rather poor
You treat ladies as simple whores
And you’re nothing but a bilious buffoon:
Taught never to speak, only to swoon.
A pathetic, non-poetic pair of eyes
How long did it take you to garner these lies?
They’ve said for years that chivalry was dead,
First disappointed, I now hate you instead.
You are in fact that worst human being
Whom I’ve had the displeasure of meeting
If only you were one of the living dead
I’d have an excuse to bash in your head.
I am not an object, not a hegira for the night
Nor is my body a rented

Dream Rant Dreams. We all have them, don't we? What is it about them that makes us so eager to achieve them? Is it the essential premise of improving our lives for the better? Perhaps it's the satisfaction of knowing you accomplished something.
We all have different dreams. Some of these dreams are easier to obtain than others. Does this imply that some of these dreams don't deserve to be reached? Who decides what is possible and what is not?
How do we know what dreams are worth pursuing? Is there any judgment for or against one's dreams?
And why do we give up so easily on that which we want? Perhaps others get in the way? Maybe you're not willing enough to reach your fantasy?
Most importantly, how do we know when our dream has been accomplished? Do we feel a sense of pride and success?
And then what? I'm weary about these so-called "unreachable fantasies." And yet, some dreams almost feel as so.
Rant: Names and NamingTopic: Names and Naming
Opening: I've briefly discussed why you should pick original, interesting names in my Originality rant, but I think it needs to be expanded upon. Not only the naming of your character is important, but everything else that requires a name must also be unique.
1.) Let's start with the most obvious: your character's name. As always, when creating a character, there are several hundreds of factors that go into that character. However, one of the most important is the name. It will be used over and over to refer to your character. So pick something interesting and fitting! It's a good idea to research names and their meanings to give you ideas or connections. If you were making a character with fire powers, instead of naming them something dumb like Blaze or Flame, search for "names that mean fire" and pick one of those! It's way more original. Trust me.
2.) Sometimes it's necessary to name a character's weapon. Instead of calling some sort of gun, a gun, come up wi
Rant: The GivenTopic: The Given
Opening: Aside from godmodding and lack of creativity, randomness is one of the worst things to have in any roleplay. Many times roleplays are ruined by random ideas that don't fit into any other ideas. There are two points to adress about this.
1.) First and foremost, you must go with what is said in a roleplay. Any roleplay whatsoever must consist of a basic idea which must be followed, which is made up of the given. The given is what is said by other participants. You see, for the most part, roleplaying is like improvisational acting: you cannot change something when it is given to you. For example: If I say that a giant ant attacks the city, the roleplay needs to progress in this direction, with limited randomness and additions. If somebody were to do something random, such as taking the roleplay to Mexico, randomness has begun and the given has been dropped. Don't ever drop or ignore the given!! Also note that you should never set up a given with one outcome in mi
RECOLLECTION In a land barren and far from civilization, CAMILLA VON FROSTSWORD I settles and starts a kingdom. She is accompanied by a small army and small number of civilians. With a little hard work, a small kingdom is established. The KINGDOM OF FROSTSWORD is hereby created.
The kingdom prospers for approximately three months before a neighboring kingdom is established. Under the rule of KING DECIMUS TESLA, the KINGDOM OF SPARKSUN, likes FROSTSWORD has several months of good fortune.
However, no longer than two months later, TESLA commanded a full on assault on FROSTSWORD, who had anticipated this. For two long weeks, the two KINGDOMS battled for FROSTSWORD's land, but FROSTSWORD claimed victory. TESLA swore revenge.
In reply to this threat, CAMILLA I sent her top knight and assassin AARON BLACK to kill TESLA to prevent any further wars involving the two KINGDOMS. BLACK obeys
Rant: OriginalityTopic: Originality
Opening: Far too often Fan Characters and Original Characters are so undeveloped that there's simply nothing special about them. Maybe your character has the same form as everybody else. Perhaps your character is the same species as everybody else's. Maybe your character has unoriginal powers or abilities. I will be discussing some unoriginal aspects a lot of people add to their characters.
1.) The first thing that should always be original in a character is their backstory. A very common backstory choice for the unoriginal involves having the character's parents die, forcing him or her to live his or her own. Blah blah blah. Try to verge away from common backstory elements as much as possible. This is your chance to make your character stand out be creating an interesting past for them to have experienced.
2.) Another very unoriginal concept that people don't focus on is battle styles. A lot of times, a character simply must fight; it's what gives a story action. Th
Rant: GodmoddingTopic: Godmodding
Opening: A lot of times, usually during roleplays or character development, people have the tendency to create overpowered, or godmodded, characters. This can be described in several ways, each of which I will be discussing so you may edit your character(s) accordingly, provided you use this advice.
1.) Godmodding can be firstly described as being overly-powerful or unrealistic. Now, let's be honest here for a moment. When we make our characters, we want them to be incredible. We want them to make an impression others, right? So naturally, you give your character anything and everything that you either like or find badass. If your character does any of the following, he or she is overpowered.
a - Forms. Forms are good to have. They provide a character with a sort of back-up ability and neat way to spice things up. However, having a form in which the character becomes invincible, goddly, etc. is stupid and godmodded. Forms shouldn't be a d
Amara and Red X's daughter, Justine
Some time into Red X and Amara's relationship, they have their own private marriage, a party Slade decided to crash < long story, for later > but ultimately couldn't stop. They couldn't defeat Slade in all his strength, but they did still exchange their marrriage vows & escaped together.
That night they concieved their daughter, Justine Marie.
Justine was born with her mother's mist abilities, sharpend by her father's whip-like intelligence.
This was good in that she was smart, but bad in that she was too quick to use her powers as a toddler. She thought that being able to use them so potently meant she would be able to use them any way she wanted. It wasn't long before she used too much & lost control.
She would use her powers in her sleep sometimes, b/c she never restrained herself. After almost killing her cat, Fallone, in her sleep she realized how it would be just as easy to hurt a real person. She became deathly terrfied of her powers, and tried to cut herself off from others. Am
What a Real Duelist Is...I gave it a lot of thought... So much thought for such a question that looks simple at first... "What a Real Duelist means?"...
It looks simple, yet nothing could be more complicated than that. It could mean that Real Duelist is a good Warrior... However can that be accurate? Being a good Warrior means that you defeat your enemies, you make good strategies to stop your opponents...you protect your comrades and subordinates in battle.
However is that enough?
No. Real Duelist is deeper. Does it mean beaing a good Friend? Protecting your friends, putting their safety above yours...save them no matter the cost or whatever damage you take yourself...
Even that though doesn't satisfy me. Real Duelist. What does that mean? Aibou...Jounouchi made me the question many times and no matter what advice I gave them, the question still remains without actual answer. What is a Real Duelist?
Perhaps it means being a good Fighter. Never give up no matter what the challenge. Trust in yourself no matt
For your mindWinter.... It was cold and snowy day. The school ring ended the lessons. All kids tried to put there coats as fast as they can and runs from school to out side where they could play snow war. All kids was happy. Only one didn't been happy with snow....
It was a shy girl. She had a short light brown hair and caramel color eyes with blue ring around cornea. She always smiled fake smile...always shaking...always alone. Her name was Goi.
Teacher yelled to her: It is just a snow Goi! Go home now!
She flinch from surprise. Goi nods and and goes to exit door.
She checked two exit doors to avoid others students but doors was locked. Goi was standing in-front the last and main doors.
Behind them was standing few her classmates and other students from hire classes.
Goi opens doors and with fast steps walks by way to home. Unfortunately she was attacked ....
When it was over she was lied down in snow all shaking from cold. Her bag was in snow with all her studding materials scatter arou
This mysteriously quiet boy knows everything about Amara's past... b/c he was there.
This is Amara's brother, Ruu.
After the things he's seen in life, if you can call it that, he's chosen not to speak unless it's absolutely required, & sometimes not even then.
He is like a barbed wire fence: just by looking at it, you know it could shred you even if you got tangled by accident, and it's mere presence is threatening.
He looks at people like they are bugs, small creatures that are beneath him, a sadness hidden behind his eyes.
He holds powers over the "dragon" in any object. Yes, there is a dragon spirit in everything , a "soul" that gives the object it's place in the world that is subliminally made up of otherwise intangible energy. Ruu can summon the dragon energy from an object and cast it in tangible enough a form to do his silent bidding.
This tells Amara something about her own powers. She always thought her smoke powers came from learning in Trigon's cult. Apparently, that's not s
What Are You Afraid Of?What Are You Afraid Of?
Well, this IS a sorry sight, now isn't it? There you are, six of the best and brightest that America's special forces can muster; well out of your jurisdiction, I might add, against little old me, and you're all just standing there, shaking in your boots. Why? What are you afraid of? You're all wearing state-of-the-art body armor, and holding such fearsome weapons; I see three M-16s, two MP-5s, and an AA-12. And look at me; while I am impeccably dressed, I fear that a well-tailored waistcoat offers very little ballistic protection, and all I have to defend myself with is this little fruit knife, as I happened to be peeling an apple when you fine fellows burst in. It's not as if this place could be set up with much in the way of defenses; this place is such a mess, I can't even rely on the power to work properly, the lights keep dying for no reason. See what I mean?
So what are you afraid of? Why on Earth would the five of you be scared of someone like me? Is it

The rift between yourself, and yourself. There she is, a thousand miles
across the blue, our body's ping endlessly across the fibre. For I am a

Wonderbolt Road - Chapter FiveA year had flown by in the Wonderbolt Academy and the second academy year was drawing to a close. It was night time up in the Cloudsdale skies, pitch black and stars were all out. Meanwhile, Firefly and her partner, Rainbow Strike were studying for their end of year exam, situated snugly in their cabin, but concentrating hard. This was one half of their exam, and they would also do their physically exam next week, but their written exam was tomorrow afternoon. If they failed even one of them, then they would not be accepted into the Wonderbolts themselves.
“Oh man this exam is gonna be tricky tomorrow” Firefly pondered, reading a textbook about the history of the Wonderbolts.
“Don’t worry about it” Rainbow Strike advised “You’ve studied hard enough for weeks now, you’ll be fine”
“I don’t know I’m not really good at exams” The pink mare said pessimistically.
“You’ll do great! I bet you that you wil
Collection of thoughts and prompts.
Because words are the sharpest swords, the strongest bullets, and the most hurtful weapon. They are the most deadly and the worst thing is, they're always disregarded saying
"It's only words, they shouldn't hurt you." When in reality, sometimes that's all someone needs to push them over the edge.
"Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words with never hurt me." The biggest lie told. Words will always hurt me, it's so funny, because some believe leaving me feel empty and cold.
They were like lines, parallel lines set apart from each other. Always to see across the street but to never cross paths and perhaps that's how it should have been, but perhaps they were not parallel lines but the sun and the moon. Forever separate beings but able to cross paths more than once in a lifetime. Maybe though our eyes we see, only a day but maybe for them through their eyes, it's an eternity. And th
MessageI am absolutely ill of sharing such hallways with insufferable imbeciles with little to no grasp on the concepts that encompass common sense and humanity. Have none of you shame or humility to display when you ease to impress your peers with such an attitude? My kindness and abstinence in such matters has thus been shattered and I will be retaliating with the mimicked actions and reactions you dish out to me on a silver platter. Prepare your tiny minds to soak up my brilliance and quake in horror as I responsibly dispose of your past behaviors and replace them with proper human morals as quickly and effectively as I deem possible for a being of your maturity.
As of now, war has been declared, and I do not intend to peacefully call a truce any further. Those who oppose me are therefore doomed to a dreadful battle heading in their direction for days to arrive. You shalt not escape my vast intellect or superior cunning, for you yet have acted with such decency that normal beings do, so I
