Un-Aligned Territory Galactic West
April 18th, 6199 C.E.
Klaus Straussfeld let out a contented sigh as he put his boots up on the highly polished surface of his teak desk and glanced around his almost sumptuously decorated office; dark wood paneling covered the walls and landscapes of dark foreboding woodlands hung from it; bookshelves and display cases also graced the exterior walls of the room and a small conference room and seating area occupied opposite sides of the other end of the room.
It had been over a year since the end of the 7th Pan-Galactic War and the debacle that Emperor Franz IX had made of it.
As it was Klaus himself had barely escaped being killed aboard the Kaiser and had also managed to turn things around a bit there at the end having disposed of his two most annoying foes; Ethan Masters and Raven Sikorsky.
“Oh yes,” Klaus thought to himself a smug smile curving his now unscarred face as the thought of the two thorns in his
Burning like fire - Loki x Sigyn - CHAPTER TWOThor was greeted by a man in a cape, at the foot of the mountain. He was startled at first, as the man simply appeared out of thin air, and appeared to know everything about his visit. The man spoke with a strange accent, giving him peculiar instructions about the entry to the mountain. He was told he was forbidden from eating or drinking anything once inside, and he certainly couldn’t take anything with him that he found inside either. He was told to speak to the women as little as possible, and to never make any mention of them to the mountain king unless the mountain king requested him to do so.Burning like fire - Loki x Sigyn - CHAPTER TWO by RosarkaHamill
After having listened to all these ridiculous instructions Thor was beginning to regret not sending someone else to hear this proposal for him, and he thought to himself that this proposal had better be a good one for putting me through all of this.
Once inside though, he felt relieved that he had been instructed first. The hallways were surprisingly large, and all made out of g
Burning like fire - Loki x Sigyn - CHAPTER ONEIt was an early morning in spring when Thor sat down on the Asgardian throne. He had been up since before dawn, pacing the halls, trying to figure out a solution to his problem. The problem on his mind was not a small one, for he had to decide what was to be done with Loki, once and for all.Burning like fire - Loki x Sigyn - CHAPTER ONE by RosarkaHamill
Part of him wished he had just killed him as soon as he found out what Loki had done. Nobody would have held it against him, everyone in Asgard would have been sympathetic, maybe even praising him, for getting his revenge on the man who had killed his own father. But, he hadn’t done that. Why? He had asked himself that question many times, but he knew that deep down, in spite of everything that had happened, he still thought of Loki as his brother. And now he was the only family he had left.
He wanted, no, needed, to punish him. But how? What punishment other than death would be even close to his crimes? Thor had no idea, and he felt tormented knowing that currently Loki’s

Today is the end of the world.
Or, rather, it was the end of Commander Adriana Shepard’s world. She awoke to the shocking realization that the only person she ever truly loved in her life, was dead. Thane always said that she awoke him from a slumber, but it was her who had felt awoken when she met Thane. He gave her the confidence and will to continue fighting--whether the enemy was the Collectors or the Reapers--and she did not know what to do.
And now she was sitting precariously on a ledge in the Presidium Commons. She made sure to sit in an obscure part, where no one could see her if she actually decided to “slip” off the ledge. Bottle of wine in hand, she contemplated for hours the idea of simply joining her love across the sea. The world was so full of pain and destruction

Characters/Pairings: Garrus Vakarian/Femshep (Noelle Shepard)
Disclaimer: All recognizable content belongs to Bioware.
Shepard just stood in the shower for a few moments, contemplating everything that happened within the last 24 hours. Kaidan’s death was obviously the most important, and the most difficult to swallow. But, at the end of the day, putting your life on the line for the cause was part of the job. Everything that happened afterwards was more confusing. Shepard was extremely grateful for Garrus’s help. If it weren’t for him, she probably wouldn’t have made it out of the shower last night. He was a perfect gentleman about the whole situation. But everything that happened after...Noelle didn’t know what to do with that. They cuddled, fell asleep holding hands...he even made her two meals. And what was he trying to accomplish
We reign when she risesWe reign when she rises by Everlasting90
When she rises, we reign.
We play under the moonlight.
We shed our skins in the starlight.
We become our trueselves in the dark.
We roam the labyrinths of trees.
We materialize desires buried deep.
We become one with the elements,
the elements of Heaven and Earth.
We are the Supernaturals.
We reign when the moon rises.
AnimusIf I couldAnimus by xxdraxx
I would vomit my soul
And let it chain itself
To my speech
Like a parasite.
I would let it
Become my puppet master,
And let it sway my arms
I never thought
Instead, I've kept my soul
Trapped in a cage
And watched it
Try to bite
It's way to freedom.
I Will Love MyselfSilence was at my doorstep.I Will Love Myself by EvannaVanyaEliska
Rain fell from the storms of my eyes
and hit the cold earth of my cheeks.
Sunlight fell down my face
in gentle waves.
And blood tinted lips
smiled only slightly.
The gentle spring
that bloomed inside my chest
had begun to grow
and replace the winter
whose frost had held tightly
onto my heart.
Silence was welcome.
Tears were shed in joy.
Sunlight was here to warm
and blood to live.
This was it.
I had made it.
I know who I am.

Tips For Art-Writing BlockWriter's and Artist's block--Everyone's nightmare. We've all been there, and if you haven't yet, then trust me, you will. So I decided to put together a little thing on what you can do to either stay out of a block or to get out of a block.Tips For Art-Writing Block by sonia555
Take a Break
So, haven't we all heard this one? Believe me, though. It is true. My dad always suggests when I'm on an artist's block to put it down for a day and write a story. Play a video game, read a book. Geez, study for that quiz on Wednesday! Do something else, as long as that something else doesn't involve getting you killed. Also, don't force yourself to draw or write something if you're on a block. Believe me, (I've tried) it'll turn out absolutely horrible. I suppose the only exception to this would be an art or writing homework assignment (For us students) that's due the next day.
Ok, I know above I said not to force yourself to draw. Perhaps I should've said something like, "Don't force you
On The Use Of DeathA little bit of helpful advice to those young padawan writers out there. The following applies to the writers of ALL prose, no matter what genre you're in, so listen up.On The Use Of Death by blizzardwolf1
Death in the use of storytelling is a very tricky thing, and I've seen plenty of writers and even filmmakers screw it up with the greatest of ease.
Now, please, don't get me wrong, death is a VERY powerful and emotionally motivating tool to use in prose, and can be the deciding factor in whether or not your story is cream or crap. By all means, it's there to be made use of, but you've got to remember that it's no arbitrary thing.
First of all, once you've made the decision to kill a characters, once it's been deemed by the events of your writing that an important person has to die, it has to have meaning behind it, or at least surrounding it. Either they've nobly sacrificed their lives for their loves and comrades, or they've become so depressed and withdrawn they finally turn to suicide for an escape, or their death h
Writing Paranormal CharactersAs a writer of prose, you may at some point to want to write about a character or characters which are paranormal. We could perhaps debate over the exact definition of the word paranormal, and some may prefer supernatural - a word more closely associated with magic, whereas paranormal tends to be taken to mean something outside the realms of science (though of course, it is not as clear-cut as that, and you may like to think that I am wrong in saying this).Writing Paranormal Characters by simplyprose
For the purposes of this guide, both paranormal and supernatural refer to conscious beings, not found in the animal kingdom, that differ in some way to what I controversially call normal humans (some paranormal beings may be human, in part or in whole). To give some well-known examples: ghosts, vampires, witches, werewolves and mermaids all fall into this category. The details, of course, are up to the writer. If you t
