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
Welcome BackWelcome back
After all of these years
And now you just turn up
As if you can just come back into my life
And you expect me to welcome you back?
With open arms?
No, you are wrong!
The last time I saw you, you left this family in ruin
You left my Mother and I to fend for ourselves in the streets
Working four jobs just to keep a roof over our head
Working four jobs just to put what little food she could put on the table
But at least you left us twenty English pounds
Don’t spend it all at once
You were cruel
And you had this little problem called a short temper
You shall not
Come back into my life
You expect just to come waltzing back in
After six years
Though six years you never called
Never sent a letter
Never made a phone call
Never wished me a happy birthday
Never wished me a merry Christmas
No contact what so ever
Not even any child support
You say this is because you are struggling with money
But yet I
Leviathan, MyselfI am the beast, I am the light, I am the blighted being cursed with sight
I am the god who created a world, I am leviathan, the girl
I relate to this song in many ways.
We are all beasts on the inside, nasty awful things, that in different situations could turn feral. I have a bad habit of growling at things I hate, and purring when pleased.
We are lights, strange and unique. Helping ourselves and others through the darkness of life, that surrounds and threatens to drag us in every single day.
Sight…is not something all people are burdened with though, and for that you should be greatful. Knowledge and sight of future and things beyond are burdens, and should never be taken lightly.
We can create worlds with our imagination, fantastical and unique. Strange and Tragic. But they are ours and we are their maker.
I am Leviathan the Girl.
I shall not let you leaveSo this is it then?
You have left
Leaving me here
You came into my life
And now happily leave my life
With nothing playing on your conscience
Whilst I sit here in the life you have ruined
Trying to rebuild
Rebuild all that I had
Thinking of that daunting task
Where do I begin?
Where do I start?
Why should I bother?
When you still see that crack in the mirror
You haven't left a crack in my mirror though
You have just left it shattered and ruined
And while you have left
Even when I rebuild
You will be that crack
You now go
Live and build a happy life
Do this to the next person
To rebuild the life that is now tainted, sad and bitter
Though you move on
Now you leave
But no… I shall not let you leave…
JHV Diary Excerpt"She pulled me, said her last wish and ...
Well , people say that the last wish should be done at all costs, not only is a ' ritual ', but one is a matter of honor .
I have sworn by my own life that would accomplish the last wish of that girl, it was something complicated, but I always stick with my promises .
I stood up with her in my arms, I left my stuff there on the ground and I took her body, still hot , into the house, few of her friends organized the preparations for the funeral, the body was placed in a boat adorned with various types of flowers and semiprecious stones from nearby regions, the fire was lit and the boat sent loose the will of the sea... Was not the first time I saw the sea, but the feeling of seeing him again, in such a sad and yet so sublime place moved me. The boat was disappearing into the horizon with the brightness reddish fire, she wanted to know the world and made me a last request which unfortunately she couldn't see if it would be realized...
I like to be aloneAlone
I wish to be alone
I like to be alone
No one to hurt
No one to judge
No one to speak
No one to hear
No one to see
I am alone and happy
Happy to be alone
Happy to keep to myself
Happy to hide myself from the world
Happy to hide myself from prying eyes
Happy to hide myself in my room
In my own space
With my own thoughts
In my own world
To think and feel as I feel
I can laugh
I can cry
I can be sad
I can be happy
All of this when I’m alone
I like to be alone...
Can't believe it's been this long since I found out. I never got to meet you, but that doesn't mean I don't miss you. I miss you every single day. Every day, I think of you. Every time I waked up, I think of you. You saved my life many times before. Both my ATV accidents, my suicide attempt, a close call with alcohol poisoning, and a few other close calls in my life, I attribute my survival from all of that to you. Marcy is doing well. You have a niece now, and she is adorable. Mel is having a bit of a hard time, but I'm sure you are watching over both of us right now as we carry on. Mom and dad are doing pretty good too. I visited you a couple days back, and tears flowed down my cheeks the entire time. Evene after knowing for nearly 2 years, it never gets easy. I want to meet you, but I will someday. I have my life to live, but we shall meet each other someday in the land of the free. Rest in Peace, my brother and remember, I love you. From your little brother.

Chapter 12 / "Secret"
Deep in the Four Element Forest, surrounder by living creatures sits young man. He is trying to get something out of his mind, could it be? "...this is not right, how can a man like that exist?" Everything around him is either sleeping or going to shortly, it's late and dark, the stars are shining bright. "Tonight is going to be cold, there are no clouds in the sky" slowly the boy lies down against the tree and closes his eyes, getting ready for a sleep. "?!" What's this? Why is there the smiling face of that king in front of him? This is going to be a long night.
New day comes, the kingdom is waking up slowly, but surely. Only two people in there are still asleep and it's understandable why. The young General is passing the royal chamber, he is concerned, but there's nothing he can do at the moment, so... "time to work" he walks down to the back of the kingdom where his knights reside "Good morning sir!" they exclame unisone, he just
The Things 'Daddy's Little Girl' Never Got To SayOkay then, you whiny, little, co-dependent twit. If YOU want to work this out, then YOU need to talk to her tomorrow and triple check every fucking thing you even attempt and ultimately fail to type, don't hit on any of your own petty, insignificant, personal subjects or theirs, don't drag your personal life into it at all dammit and focus on the main problems that were brought up which mainly involved on the page because you obviously can't seem to comprehend or even blame yourself for any little thing. Don't try and defend yourself because almost every little thing they say is true, don't bash the other side because take you own advice, bitch, 'You've never walked in their shoes.' At least attempt to have even the most minuscule version of a civilized conversation with someone that doesn't turn into a petty cat fight because of your own fucking problems ending with you being to much of a puss to continue and backing out and work it out without coming to me because I am done fucking d
Cold"she was perfect since the first day i made her. not an animal, not human, but not still being a machine. she looked so fascinated at every little thing she could touch with her hands, while i was watching her from my secret room, not reachable with a key, not reachable with the eye. one day then, she saw the books, her hands shivering while turning smoothly the perfectly scripted papers. i remember how my hands were shaking while writing those letters. drawing those complicated mechanisms. i thought she would smile, thought she would look at me, happy, thankful maybe. but when her perfect made face began to tremble, furiously, angrily, hatefully, and i began to understand, that she would never be able to understand, what i was feeling for her, how my heart was beating while watching her, because i thought making her without a heart, i couldn't make her leave me, but i forgot, that without a heart, i couldn't even make her love me.
and so she lived with her pain, her sadness, the one i
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
