"We all came in different ships but we all are in the same boat."
Everyone's mind is moving space
Trying to find even one moment's peace
They see an object and let it race
Tranquility only comes when it will cease
That object may have many names
I see it as only one
They seem to never value peace
Until it is long, far gone
I keep my mind still, my senses clear
Peace comes to me at any time
Those around me will never learn
They seem to lack understanding minds
Fate of a Good WomanFate of a Good Woman
A good woman could be reborn as a man
It has thus crossed my mind
About the woman I love
Ascending her throne at 18
The small but proud girl called then "Pu-abi"
Looked out amongst her subjects
She viewed the nobles in her court
The youths chosen to be warriors
The crafstmen, the weavers and all
Her woman's heart wished them well
Yet men had more power, more strength
Nonetheless, she tried to help
[Sadly, nobody had time to love]
Her care and concern,
Her pride of nobiity
Re-vested within me
We are one

Rain Poem #16Rain Poem #16
Tonight the rain fell rather late
It fell with a hush on rooftops
And on people milling round below
It could not be unexpected
Nor, for me, at any rate,
Could it be a sad affair
I nurse my health
So far as the weather will permit
With my loved one beside me always
Watching me as a nurse on duty
My ailment lingers
An unwanted guest in the house of my body
Ever beside me anxiously
My darling wishes that she could do more
It is enough for me
That she is here
"Beloved, pease be well."
As They Were in LifeAs They Were in Life
[So They Are in Death]
Somewhere, away from the city,
There lie rows of rows of graves unmarked
In them lie those who died from unknown causes
Nobody knows that they lie there
Occasionally, someone passes by those who passed on, in the night
Hears wails and cries
Hears the echo of lids slamming shut
For as they were in life
[Shouting, wailing and slamming doors]
So they are in death
[Shouting, wailing and slamming coffins]
Betwixt and between
Not one single moment's thought
Such are their dull minds
But who would care?
Queer Events in the Atlantic-conclusionQueer Events in the Atlantic
Percy Jackson Fan Fiction
It took some time until Poseidon finally arrived at the South Pacific area where Percy Jackson and the team of oceanographers were trapped. Poseidon had been busy in the Atlantic, in the site of the events, because the Atlantean crystals were responding more abnormally than before. Their glow was brighter and more visible and caused a sudden mass evacuation of fish and crustaceans in the region. Poseidon had been disturbed by the activity and gone to investigate it. After thinking of a place to move the crystals, he heard Percy Jackson's call for rescue and hurried to the South Pacific.
However, rescue of the trapped humans would be more difficult than Poseidon anticipated. When he arrived, equally furious action was occurring from R'yleh. More strange, unearthly creatures were heading towards the trapped humans. The current was tremendous, like an underwater blast, and threatened to carry everyone far away. T
Rain Poem #15Rain Poem #15
Today the rain fell fast and hard without
I embraced my lover within
She saw me shiver and she clung
To shield me in her arms
Her small moist eyes glanced into mine
My eyes looked into hers
Something wonderful always comes
In the pouring rain
“Beloved, Anu wills that we be together.”
“I will not argue with him, darling.”
Outgrowing the Convention
It was a fairly busy afternoon at the Westin hotel. Hundreds upon thousands of people had turned up for this year’s Anthrocon, and as a result, there were little to no rooms to spare for people who weren’t part of the event. Thankfully for two of the people involved, they had a room sorted.
Phil and his friend Dave had spent most of the morning checking out some of the artist events and other events at the convention, deciding to take a break for lunch. The two of them had met through the website Furaffinity, under the names of HG3300 and Rooth, and had struck up a friendship fairly quickly. It was due to this that they were able to arrange travel plans to the convention, as well as being able to share a room together.
“Well, so far so good!” Phil said as he sat down in the hotel lobby, looking over some of the things he had bought so far. “I haven’t even made a large enough dent in my wallet yet, how about you?”
“I’d say I&
Umbreon uses GulpTo everyone in the Johto region, and all regions beyond, Pokemon were everything to everyone. Capturing and training Pokemon were fun activities to everyone. What everyone enjoyed even more than catching wild Pokemon was using them to battle each other. But none of this was the case for a twelve-year-old boy named Noah. He was always afraid of Pokemon ever since he was three. His parents and older siblings loved them either way. His fear began when his father's Feraligator tried to help him get out of a tree, but accidentally swallowed him whole. He was traumatized by the event and even though he was assured it was an accident, he was still eaten by Pokemon as he grew up. His brother's Muk ate him up at his fifth birthday party, and his sister fed him to both her Arbok, and her Dragonair when he annoyed her. The straw that broke the Camerupt's back was of course when a Victreebel made him its prey when he went to visit his uncle. These experiences being eaten by Pokemon caused him to f
Gift for YOUNGFAN196752: Harsh LessonsJason Todd, the Red Hood shoved the two figures into the empty room. One was a young man, the other a little boy; they were both bound and had bags over their heads. He shoved the young man first. The young man was obviously of some means; his suit, stained and torn in a fight, was well made. The little boy whimpered as Red Hood shoved him into a corner. Red Hood then removed the hoods.
"Hello, Kane brothers, missed me?" said Red Hood. He kept his helmet on.
"You sonofa--" said Dr. Joseph Kane.
"Now now, not in front of your little bro! I see you're recovering nicely."
"No thanks to you!" Almost a year ago, Jason had nearly killed Joseph. Joseph had been making a remarkable recovery; Jason had left him crippled and nearly dead. Jason was surprised that Joseph was even capable of walking; then again, he broke Joseph's cane when he captured him.
A soft whimpering was heard from young Sam Kane, "Batman will save us, Batman will save us."
Jason turned to Sam. "Batman will save you? You sho
Town of FulfillmentBetty was driving through the highway and was entering a small town in the country, called Hidsire. She was going to visit her friend Betsy, who were both friends since high school, and became roommates in college. But after college they went their separate ways.
“Why would Betsy move to a town like this,” Betty said to herself.
Betty was a photographer for a fashion company. She was a 120 lb 28 year-old, brown hair, and had the body of a model. However, Betty’s plans were shattered, when many model agencies rejected her. The only job she could get was a photographer job. When Betty was driving through the town, she noticed that many of the women were overweight. They were above 200 lbs and some were being feed by men, who were enjoying this.
“What is wrong with these people?” she said as she stopped her red car in front of a house. Betty went up to the door and rang the door bell. “Betsy would never move here.”
When the door opened a blo
Post MortemThough it had been derelict nearly one hundred years and the man inside was a long-frozen corpse, the life pod that drifted into the scanning radius of salvage ship Belfor still beeped its distress signal. Like a weak old man who had fallen and couldn't get up, quietly begging for someone to come in through the door, the pod had plead uselessly. Aboard the salvage vessel, a four-hundred-foot sleek cylinder with angel wings and orange paint, skipper Zhon Eltek decided the pod was worth boarding.
It had been a slow six months for him and his crew of five--his wife Klato, son Rha, brother Utin, his wife Belat, and their son Roga. They had managed to cover their expenses by hauling an ex-navy minesweeper out of an old battlefield for the commonwealth, and for a time had ferried iridium between the Oort Cloud and Proxima Centauri. But barely breaking even was not enough; Zhon was going to perform the EVA himself and see if there was anything worth taking.

Play song #1
The sound of tires tearing through the earth rang out through the trees as the engine of the warthog roared, the ever quiet forest disrupted by the sounds of a machine being pushed to it’s limits. The large dirt path that carved through the trees curved and twisted making it almost impossible for anyone to see ahead of them for more than a couple hundred yards or so. The man behind the wheel didn’t seem to mind, almost careening into trees every time he made a turn, no... Only one thing was on his mind. Finding who had sent an ODST kill team after him....
Ghost checked his tac pad which he had now wired as a make shift GPS to track the ones he had been following as he slammed the pedal of the warthog to the floor sending it forward as fast as it would go. He knew they were holed up in the ONI HQ a few hundred clicks North of his position, he wanted to get there before t
PTPPE: Holiday Gifts I*Holiday Gifts I*
I thought it would be a nice idea for all of us to go out and buy eachother something for the holidays. We all went to separate stores on separate sides of town; Spike went to the bad side of town, Wesley went Downtown, Emily went Uptown, and I went to Chinatown. Why Chinatown? Because of all the cool stuff in the shops. The very first shop I went in looked promising enough by the looks of it, a bunch of jade sculptures, decorated urns, and awesome looking paintings. Lesse... Half-naked Geisha painting for Spike, Some easy-going oriental music on a CD for Wesley... hmm... what should I get Emily?
"Looking for something particular young one?"
I was a bit startled when the owner walked up behind me, but it's to be expected from ghosts with no footsteps. He was an old oriental man with a long thin mustache, and long hair (balding on top), not only that but he was HUGE he must have been over six feet tall in his prime, I couldn't really see his eyes through his dark-tinte

"Sir, these are the recent compiled reports from our colonies in Ancerious," said a Clerk Manager as he handed over a file which contained all the hard copies of the reports, files of various formats and the flash drive which stored the digital copies of the aforementioned. Autarch Ayman nodded and received the file, then placing them on the side of his desk.
"Thank you, Vatar, anything else I must know?"
"No sir, not that I know of," replied Vatar. Ayman stood up and straightened his posture.
"Very well then, you are dismissed," said the Autarch. His subordinate saluted and Ayman returned it. The Clerk Manager left the room, heading back to his cubicle to resume work. Ayman returned to sitting down on his chair to continue working on his daily tasks. Being an Autarch was not easy, since not everythin

Little Miss It“Do you enjoy her company?”
That, Avadaci concluded, had been the extent of his grandfather’s kindness. Thank the stars he had broken his neck after a failed attempt to ascend the castle staircase. Not that many were privy to this information. The official listing on the cause of death involved something along the lines of falling in battle after slaying at least a dozen demons, although this was treated with quite a bit of skepticism by the general populace. Yet, interestingly enough, a decent portion of the locals believed a tale about the cannibals of Unkhtom devouring him whole.
Not that Avadaci really cared how his grandfather had died. He was just glad he was dead. And if he was glad his grandfather had died, Avadaci wondered, why did he have to attend his funeral? In fact, the whole kingdom was glad his grandfather had died. Why did they have to attend the funeral?
