Analyzing Fan Designs - see proper title belowWHY IS IT ALWAYS LIONS?! A fan's view at the Organization and their prideland forms according to others.
Okay kiddies, it's time for Auntie Ress to give a teeny rant about character design. True, it matters little in the grand scheme of things, but every fan has their pet peeves. Here's one of mine.
Why is it that about 90% of the fandom sees the Organization as nothing but Lions when it comes to the Pridelands. I mean I appreciate the character design, don't get me wrong, but there's just something about seeing it all the time that just tweaks my switches a bit.
Part of it is that it's terribly unimaginitive. TLK's story focused mainly on lions, yes, but they weren't the ONLY characters within the course of the film. You had the majordomo Zazu (An African Hornbill), Simba's later caretakers Timon and Pumbaa (a meerk
Dancing MadnessMaster of destiny,
once a man sane,
by playing the game.
Thought to be,
and the clown.
Now I stand,
a god among men,
to pass judgement,
yea, strike them down,
Cower in my wake.
Harbinger of death,
reaper of souls,
their lives I take.
Feel the caress,
of my light,
the scrutinizing eye,
as I pass judgment
upon the unwashed,
as they pass by.
And the heroes,
to my side,
to end this sweet,
one last breath,
no time to cry,
As nothing begets
my end comes,
and I retreat
to my lair
The end comes,
Final Fantasy VI Review Long ago, the War of the Magi reduced the world to a scorched wasteland, and
Magic simply ceased to exist.
1000 years have passed... Iron, gunpowder and steam engines have been rediscovered, and high technology reigns.
But there are those who would enslave the world by reviving the dread destructive power
known as "Magic".
Can it be that those in power are on the verge of repeating a senseless and deadly mistake?
These are the words that form an opening to what might be one of the most EPIC games on the Super Nintendo system.
It's also the opening to a game that I remember fondly and spent much time (and a lot of money in rentals) playing.
Squaresoft (Now known to the layman and many a gamer as Square-Enix) was no stranger to quality gaming considering that their last chance to stave off bankruptcy (i.e. the original Final Fantasy) became a cult name in RPGs as well as a very popular game for the NES; and let's face it folks... It just wouldn't have been right to leave the Supe
The Few That Are ManyWe are the music makers
(that touch hearts with our song)
and the dreamers of dreams
(the hope we carry on)
We are the artists
(with pen and brush in hand)
and the creators, the inventors
(of worlds beyond comprehension)
and the composers of great things
We speak languages many do not understand
(or have they grown beyond?)
We see things many miss
(oh blind and sightless masses)
We listen in the silence
(for that single unheard voicing)
and open our hearts
(to new and fascinating things)
while the world speeds on.
We hail from many places
(so many different faces)
From broken homes and damaged lands
(and also fates in better hands)
Some had the lucky times in life
(and nurtured were they ever)
While others mocked for what they are
(poor souls, misunderstood)
by the mass that we call society
We are the inventive
(the creative, some say)
We are the weird
(and bizarre, paraded about like a carnival freak show)
We are the lauded
We are also the loathed
(only because they do not
ConniversWell it's gone by again
lets watch the credits roll
or skip the credits
'cause we already know
sure some liked how it all went
and some all out of shape are bent
no more mud slinging
no more smear
no more corruption of virgin ears
shut the ape cage for four more years
I'll tell you now
it's simple, see
they lie to you and me
Every word coming from their mouths is filth
convincing deception, false prophetry
conceiving a verbal collar that chokes
strapping 'round unsuspecting folks
poisoning like strychnine
corrupting sensible minds
creating warring households
with a party dividing line
warp and wring and turn and twist
all this politics gets me pissed
here is my honest belief
politician is a thief
theme and object of my ire
politician is a liar
Paradise in my minds eye...
Politicians all should die.
I will. (warning for prose,but mostly description)I.
I will rouse myself from casket mornings, and I will flex the 11 (or was it 12?) muscles in my mouth to form a smile—however painful. I will keep it there… because kindness bandages wounds in the best of ways. I will sip the horizon from my coffee, while weaving fairytales—without ever thinking that I’ve not the innocence anymore… because I’ll make it not matter. I will.
And I will forget him. I will… because ghosts only appear if you look at them, and he’s loved my nightmares—my tears—long enough. And because I’ve haunted myself long enough.
I will allow myself to feel human again, because I’ll remember that rain rids filth, but I’ll try to keep myself wishing less for forgetting-tsunamis… less for escapes just because of prints engrained in roots and soul. So I’ll forget his fingers straying past my heart—the way muscles seized, and cardiac arrest knew betrayal—and the way
Innocent Victim Chapter 7"What?!" was all that I could choke out. Titanic mated with Lusitania and had shiplings?! Why had she not told us?! Of course, he knew the answer to that; they would've forced her to be rid of the shiplings and she would've been punished hard, maybe even scrapped. Maybe it was for her own good. he thought.
Mauretania just continued to talk, "Please don't tell anyone! If anyone finds out their half-liners, and especially from Cunard and White Star, they'll be killed! And I'll be killed too, for protecting them and hiding the secret! Please, you have to promise me you won't tell anyone unless it's Olympic!" she begged.
Britannic was quiet for a moment, thinking. Why should he help her? All she had done her entire life was dis his line and attack his most respected sister with harsh words and actions. But that didn't make it right to where he would tell the whole world and get not only Mauretania killed, but two shiplings that didn't deserve it.
He hesitated and sigh,
What I'm Thankful ForMy cats.
My video games.
My family. Sometimes.
That's about it.
Wife's Feet After Work (Unbelievable Tickle Story)My Wife came Home from Work and reminded me that two of our friends were stopping over for a Thanksgiving drink and some pizza, wings and snacks and such. Kevin, a younger Nuclear Tech. and a nurse named Dianne, who I wrote a fantastic tickle story I had with her and her feet a while back, was coming over too.
As I was saying she came Home and was rushing around and I told her to relax and she did just that. After she kicked off her tennis shoes she went to the bedroom to get clean clothes, which were on the bed since I just finished laundry, and sat on the bed then she laid down on it. I quickly got my cell phone for some quick photos.
I came in and she felt the pillows going over her ankles and she begged me not to do this cause there wasn't anytime. I replied that if she just let me take a few then it would be over quickly.
As I was getting into position she told me that my favorite pair of socks might be getting tossed shortly and she showed me the hole in her big toe. Now I realiz
Rant.If anybody here works at Google, DA, Bing, whatever. I want you to see if you can make this happen. Get pony filters on the search engines. Why? Because I'm going to tell ya.
Couple days ago I was looking up a toaster on Google and 5 My Little Pony pictures came up with no toasters in it. What. The Fuck. This is one of the reasons why I hate My Little Pony. When I search something that doesn't have anything to do with MLP, it somehow magically turns up. I'm not even joking. It's stupid. They should add a filter to those search sites so if I want to search something, there shouldn't be ponies in it. Except if I actually type in the search engine "My Little Pony" or "ponies". If I type anything else, it should not appear. When I search dinosaurs, my little pony shows up as some of the results. I don't know why! Dinosaurs can eat those ponies but I bet they would vomit from the taste afterwards! More then half of the pony franchise is in random stuff that I type up, in ads, or in the fanb
Sound of Vengeance Chapter 2Iowa had not yet left the spot he had rested in since the day Yorktown left. As his siblings played with their kin carriers, he sat and stared out to sea. He was the oldest of the four, his radio tower was already done being formed and he was 80 feet long. Just a bit more maturity and he would be ready to join the Navy and take the fight to the Japanese!
As he watched, with his battleship sight that could show the smallest details on a ship from 16 miles away, as far as his turrets would aim, he noticed a small black dot on the horizon. It was a carrier, familiar in shape, and it was speeding towards the harbor at full speed. As the carrier got into his sights better, he smiled. "Mom's home!" he cheered and dashed forward to greet her.
At the sound of their mother being called, Missouri, New Jersey and Wisconsin looked up. With grins on their faces, all raced forward to meet Yorktown. The carrier yelped with surprise as the four shiplings jumped onto her and hugged her. Iowa was the fi
UnlovedHave you ever been afraid of being alone forever? Felt that sudden grip on your heart when you think about the future? Or how unlikable you are or might be to the desired sex? Sometimes I feel that. But I'm not necessarily afraid of being without someone I love- It's more like I'm afraid of pushing people so far away- of being so unfeeling- that I become unlovable.
I don't want to be that old lady who's eating lunch alone in a restaurant, with no wedding ring- no signs of people who love her- nothing but herself lost amongst the sea of jubilant, vibrant people. I'm lost. I'm scared. I'm angry. I'm a monster.
I don't know how to fix myself.
I don't know how to be who I want to be.
I don't know how to be the right person.
Dawn of The HuntThalia sighed as she tossed another smooth stone across one of the lakes, she was pretty far off from both whiterun and the rest of the companions had decided to go hunting and leave her on her own. "Typical just because they found out that I'm Ulfric's heir they leave me out of everything." she muttered as she tossed another rock watching as it hit one of the rocks and hit the water causing small ripples to disrupt the surface. "Maybe i should leave and go back home." Thalia muttered as she shook her head. "Then you wouldn't be able to be taught how to fight." a voice said as it came up behind her. "Shut up, Vilkas i know that. i mean i didn't even want to join in the first place, if it wasn't for you saving my life..." Thalia said and sighed as she tossed another rock. "Well you got a point their." he said a bit surprised that she had recongized his voice even though they had only talked a couple times. "Hey Vil, how come your not with the other compa
The Dance of Couples As the busy streets of Tokai were buzzing with its catering of shops and the ringing of bikes, there are many moments in the streets that create a lasting impression. I know, I remember one event that helped me and my girlfriend become closer.
It started with me and my girlfriend walking in the streets; looking at the various shops and enjoying the scenery. Then, there was this one building that caught our attention; a dancing academy who was giving out free dancing lessons today. It must of have been a celebration or something. Anyways, I was asking my girlfriend if she wanted to try it out. Even though she was getting all embarrassed, she did agree to go. When we got inside, the place was very elegant. Like there were gentlemen and ladies everywhere and I felt like I was a butler. When we were walking in the room, a person was guiding us to the changing rooms. Apparently, we needed to dress up so we can dance properly. I was wearing pro
'Nacho' Mama's Taco Salad'Nacho' Mama's Taco Salad

1 large tomato or 2 medium sized tomatoes
3 jalapeno peppers

Chop and combine your Jalapeno and banana peppers into a separate bowl (please be sure to wear gloves, since jalapeno seeds and veins are quite hot, and the oil will stay on bare hands for quite some time).*
Set aside your salad fixings and put together your tortilla chips and cheese, a
Twenty-three years before the crippling of Crown Prince James III
He was fourteen and she was probably aged about the same, give or take a few years. It had been an hour since he'd met her.
He hated her already.
She scowled behind him and likely shared the sentiment as they scampered up the hillside in a desperate attempt to escape the roaring mob that seemed to be growing perpetually larger and coming ever-closer. Gabriel would have liked to say that it was all her fault he was in this situation, though it was his careless nicking ofwhat was it? A chicken that started the first old woman running, but how was he supposed to know that she'd stumble and fall and everyone else would think he'd assaulted her?
He hadn't. He'd taken the chicken, snapped its neck and run, because he hadn't eaten meat in weeks and he was starting to feel the affects on his already weak limbs.
This is what happens, he thought. This is what happens when you live like th
