ParanoiaTurn out the lights
But don't embrace the night
Venture into the unknown
But don't stray alone
Take one step forward,
But be aware that something follows
Your blankets will swallow
Your pillows will sooth your troubled thoughts
Until your eyes start to rot
The fear keeps you awake and aware
Because of all the things that freak or scare
You will surely come to haunt you
And watch you as you sleep
A face in the dark
A scream near the park
A voice on the wind
Yet nothing to find
Do not look in the mirror,
For there may be something there
With blood-soaked hair
And a machete or crowbar in hand
Where death is their demand
Just wait, was that a knock at the door?
Do you hear something crawling across the floor?
Has that window always been cracked?
Do you even dare to fall asleep?
Drift off into dreamland
So then you'll understand
Why your phobias haunt you
That nightmares certainly can be true
Two In The MorningWell, as of right now,
Today hasn't technically started!
It's after two in the morning,
Not even dawn has broken yet,
So I cannot deem it to be "tomorrow"
Or "today" until I see that morning sun.
I know it will come sooner than I expect,
But right now it is dark,
And I am cold,
And I am alone.
I still have my cat for company.
Fire &hellip; everywhere. BlaFire … everywhere.
Blazing black and orange flames danced all around me, glazing atop the burning tables and climbing up the beige plaster walls. The scattered paper ignited easily, creating tiny, white glowing butterflies appear, soaring gently in the air, blissfully unaware of the chaos that surrounded them. The roof began to cave in, several broken light fixtures plummeting down to the ground as the building continued to incinerate.
I stood alone on one side of the scorching room - my white long-sleeved, knee-length dress splattered with blood and smothered in ash, my hair knotted and flailing in front of my face - while my enemy held the person I loved most in a strong chokehold. Tears threatened to pour from my eyes, which had long since turned a dangerous crimson colour, but I didn’t dare allow the fear to show on my features. If I were to show any sign of weakness, my enemy would most likely use it to his advantage, perhaps as a ploy to string me along into his twis
Mindsweeper - Chapter 1Mindsweeper
Just keep moving, Ricky Just keep moving
I repeatedly chanted those words in my mind as I ran through the forest in a mad fury. My breath was short and gruff, the need for oxygen becoming more of a necessity every second. My brown button-up was just about drenched as sweat dripped down my face, sliding uncomfortably along my backside and into my socks. The muscles in my legs began to give out, ready to shut down completely so I wouldn't be able to move another step. Nevertheless, I continued to run as fast as I possibly could.
Just keep moving God damn it, don't slow down!
I didn't know how long I had been sprinting through the forest; could have been hours or days, I really wasn't keeping track. My mind was focused on one thing: to get as far away from him as humanly possible. My efforts may be in vain, but the adrenaline in my blood kept me going. I wasn't going to die tonight. Not in these woods.
Breathe But don't stop Just
You Are Your Own PersonIf I jump off a bridge, would you jump after I do?
Would you follow me to the grave if it only meant you would be like me?
I know you hate happiness
And blood is being drained from your arms
You even cried white tears to emphasize your point
I pity you
Your life is sacred and hurt
The felines' meows turn into growls
As your whines and pleads turn into screams and sobs
Stop playing your twisted game
Look in the mirror and stare at your reflection until your eyes bleed
You are your own person
Anime Tag - One Piece!Anime Tag!
First Step = Pick one of your OCs. I'm gonna' use my OC Kori Eternus
Second Step = Pick 10 roomates, they can be from different fandoms.
#1: Luffy / #2: Chopper / #3: Nami / #4: Usopp / #5: Sanji / #6: Brooke / #7: Cherry (I know she's an OC, too, but whatevs) / #8: Robin / #9: Franky / #10: Zoro
QUESTION ONE ~ You arrive late and turns out the only room available is with 6 (Brooke)! Isn't that great?
Kori: *quirks eyebrow* I'm not gonna' be sleeping tonight anyway, so why should this circumstance matter? *sits in a nearby chair, dropping bag at feet*
Brooke: *stands up* My lovely dark angel! Might I say you are looking quite magnificent tonight! But I have no eyes to see you with! Yohohohohohoho!
Kori: *vein pops on forehead* I can live through this one night ...
Brooke: *stops laughing* And may I see your pan-
Kori: *grabs bag and leaves the room* Nope, can't do it ...
QUESTION TWO ~ After much difficulty and rearranging, your room is switched and you now share a ro
A VoiceYou insist on having no voice
Keeping your secrets locked down
Inside your throat, sealed below
With a melancholy frown
Your eyes refuse to see the
Morning daylight from the sun
You push back that unfathomable
Night and choose to run
Your memory is tainted by
That dreaded night's curse
You say that you're fine
But you're just getting worse
Let me help you, my friend,
In any way that I possibly can
Don't submit yourself to secrecy
Because of some sadistic man
Open your mouth and tell the world
That should have the right to know
Because you're safety is important to me
And I don't want to let you go
Not My VirtueI shouldn't love you, but I have no choice
My heartstrings tug just a little bit every time
Your name enters my depressing thoughts
My face flushes when your beautiful words
Reach down into the sensitive part of my soul
Warming happiness spreads from my head to
My toes when I see you smile
You manage to scare away all the fear and
Doubt that resides within me when I'm upset
Your passionate language throws me off guard
So often that I'm afraid to respond to your message
When I think of the past, so harmful to my spirit,
You think of the future, where our love will play
In the leaves of tomorrow
For forever more
I never thought that I could actually fall in love, with anyone. I believed that the only thing meant for me in life was depression and boredom. But boy was I wrong. My past relationship with Venom had been purely physical, there was no romantic attachment during our time spent together, not really. But being like this with Jack made me rethink my close-minded opinions about love and eternal bliss.
We were alone, having the privacy of the empty "Attic" Room all to ourselves. The others had decided to meet up in the Party Room for the night, but I had insisted that I wasn't up for any excessive fun tonight. They allowed me to go freely back to my cell, but I had secretly snuck off to the 2nd floor instead, hoping to see the full moon rise into the sky that night. However, I hadn't counted on running into Jack on my way there. He, too, wished to see the large, magical orb hover in the sky that evening, so who was I to refuse? We were just best friends watching the m
Haunted Dreams Hauntshadow padded into the warriors den. He curled up in his new nest and lay his tail over his muzzle. It took him awhile to fall asleep due to his excitement from becoming a warrior, but eventually he did. When he opened his eyes again he was in the Dark Forest. A few heartbeats later, a cat came forward. It was his uncle, Jaywing.
The gray Dark Forest warrior smiled and said, "I saw your ceremony. Congratulations, Hauntshadow."
Hauntshadow dipped his head and stepped forward a bit, "Thank you. What are we doing tonight?"
Jaywing grinned, "I have an important task for you."
The black tom held his head high. Whatever this task was he would do it with pride to show his loyalty to the Dark Forest. His eyes glistening, Hauntshadow asked, "What do I have to do?"
Jaywing started circling around him, "First you must answer this question. What do you think the biggest problem is that the clans face?"
There were a lot of problems the clans had faced.

TV Reviews - Teen Titans GO!
Teen Titans Go
If there's one thing I learned is that the word “Spinoff” is a double edged sword. On one hand it can be a treat to the fans of original piggy backing off an already successful product. Or it can be a blatant cash in job for series that's been off the air for a while and is SO BAD that it has the fans clamoring for DVDs and digital re-releases of the original. Just guess what camp Teen Titans GO! Is in......?
Characters – Full stop I have to dwell on how much they fuck up Cyborg and Beast Boy. In the original Cyborg was the techie trying to keep the tower standing, fixing equipment, and overall just keeping everything in ship shape. He's also a personal favorite character because he's a half man half machine trying to sort out a world he feels he can't fit into. Beast Boy was a likable character who had his own episodes where he'd take responsibility. The comic relief that is actually more helpful than annoying. We get.....barely any of that in th

UntitledOkay, since people have wondered why I've not posted some of my writing here, the reason is, my work mostly involves arcane historical & philosophical subjects that I felt would not be of that much interest to most readers on this site. But, here's an example for you. The beginning of an essay I've been working on concerning the subject of "Atlantis". Hope you find it interesting...
Copyright © 2014
George T. Young
Simply, this little essay is some wonderings, if you will, resulting from an informal but earnest attempt to look at things re “Atlantis” that are– as they are.
Okay, and just what do I think these are? Well, as far as I can see, after discounting all the fiction and nonsense written about this subject, it boils down to three valid groups of factors:
1. The source material, of course, which is a mixed bag of still extant ancient writings by various (predominantly Classical era) chroniclers and scholars; most famously,
Arcane Treatise 277Malachite Custard with Bronze Mirepoix

12 large leaves perilla
2 cups sherry
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon miso paste
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 sour cream
1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
1 cup freshly squeezed carrot juice
2/3 cup diced carrots
2/3 cup diced celery
2/3 cup diced onion
1 tablespoon black vinegar
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1) Grease 6 ramekins, then press one perilla leaf into the bottom of each. Reserve. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine one cup water with sherry and miso in a large saucepan over high heat. Place peas into a colander or wire strainer. Once saucepot is boiling, blanche peas for one minute, remove, and drain well before rinsing under a stream of cold water. Reduce heat under saucepan to low, then cook potato, covered, until fork tender. R
Human Studies HW #4The assignment was to go and blend in with the tourists. He knew that he had to start socializing eventually, and he would need to talk when he needed help. Besides, he would have to leave the Refuge eventually. So this assignment... was mostly to help him.
Benny watched some of the other people from the refuge begin to blend, looking more like they belonged with the tourists. He looked back at the camp before looking at the group, making his way over shyly. To others, this assignment was easy. Benny saw it as a test. He wanted to flee right now, but bounding away would turn a few heads and put the camp at risk.
The deer eventually made it into the group of unrecognizable faces, saying "sorry" when he bumped into someone or pushed them aside like his grandpa taught him to. He soon found his way through to a part that looked out to the national park, looking out at the beauty of the park. He wanted to live in some place like this, even if it wasn't possible to it. It was better than a c

The Trickster Archetype in Ancient Mythologies and Today
Loki, Coyote, Raven, Puck, Bugs Bunny. Names we know well and names that denote trickery and cunning. These ideas are all of the Trickster Archetype, beings who are the ultimate Slytherin idols. But how did they come about and why?
The first, and perhaps most important, thing to know is that every pantheon, from every civilization has at least one trickster deity. From the Inuit to the Japanese, they all have a Trickster or two in their myths and legends. But what is a trickster deity?
A trickster deity, as defined by mythologists and folklorists, is a deity who often breaks the laws of their universe, either maliciously or for simple amusement. They will work to subvert the wills of the gods or the Fates t
The Advanced Ancient Human TheoryThis is a combination of everything that was said in this forum post: forum.deviantart.com/devart/ge…
You see all these theories about how these gigantic monuments (pyramids, Moai statues, Stonehenge, etc.) were built by prehistoric humans, so what if ancient humans actually had very advanced technology (maybe from extraterrestrials, or by their own doing), but something happened that erased all of those advancements, knocking humans back technologically and scientifically? Cavemen may have had nuclear technology and had a war which explains the ice ages (nuclear winter), massive extinctions, and the huge crater in Yucatan. Also, it may be a process that repeats, society constantly destroying and rebuilding itself.
There is plenty of research that could support that in one way or another. When you think about it, humanity could've been around ages longer than any scientist thinks. We humans build up our society in the same general path, with advancements to science, medicine, tec
Memories I remember being very small while growing up in a large house that seemed to get bigger with each passing day. I would explore as much of the house as I could in one day, climbing over mountainous furniture to see out a high window or stalking monstrous tabby cats in an attempt to play with them.
However, my adventures usually came to an end when I reached the darkest and most disturbing part of the building: the stairs. Those stairs in our house, carpeted in a dirty brown material, always startled me for some reason or another. I'm not sure if it was because there was no source of light along the stairwell, making the hike up to the next level unbearable; or if it was the paintings that hung on the walls, the horrific pictures frightening me in every way possible; or perhaps it was because of the mountain-like trudge to the second floor, something that just very intimidating to a small toddler such as myself at the time.
