Andraste's Grace and Dust Town's Daughter CH. 3CH. 3 Two Merchants and A Coin’s Mission.
Edin was half asleep by the time they travelers made it to camp. The two men had done an amazing job of hiding the campsite, so well that the three women and Vidar could barely find it themselves. The duster had never been so happy to see a fire with a log for a seat. The girl stumbled over and plopped down on the log with a content sigh. Spotting her lute, Leliana went about laying out her small amount of belongings before starting on a simple soup for dinner.
The group was fairly close together, everyone crowding the fire, but there was one member of the caravan that wasn’t anywhere near. Edin noticed the absence of the group’s mage and set off to find where the woman had disappeared to.
Morrigan was busy making herself at home in the far corner of the campsite. She had built a small teepee-like hut by the cliffside. The mage even went as far as to stoke her own fire so she wouldn’t have to share with the rest of the g
Andraste's Grace and Dust Town's Daughter CH. 2CH.2 Maker’s Mercy
Edin sat down next to a huge building with pink glass. There was a dark-skinned man rambling about something in common tongue. The young dwarf sighed lightly and scratched the head of her mabari hound, Vidar who had found them on the imperial highway. Vidar laid down by his mistress’s feet and curled up, licking his chops after his meal of bandits he’d just enjoyed.
The dwarf glanced up from brushing through her own sand-coloured locks when Alistair plopped down beside her, setting his sword; which she understood came from Duncan when he joined the warden, down next to him. The giant, as Edin found herself thinking of him of, sighed, clearly still troubled by Ostagar. “Aldrei gefast upp.” the dwarf whispered.
Alistair jumped slightly at her mezzo-soprano voice. “What?” She stared up at the man, her piercing blue eyes piercing him like daggers. “Aldrei gefast upp.... it means ‘never give up’ in dwarven.
Andraste's Grace and Dust Town's Daughter CH. 1CH. 1: The Duster, The Templar and The Newly Found Ally
Edin awoke from her sleep to the comfort of a human-made bed. The young dwarf fought the urge to submit to the calling of rest, slowly sitting up.
“I see you have awaken. Mother will be pleased.” Edin slowly unshielded her eyes to see the chasind woman she, Alistair and the other recruits had met just a few days before.
“Where am I?” the dwarven girl asked, surprised by the roughness in her usually light, slightly childish voice.
The woman before her explained where she was and the tragic events at Ostagar. Upon hearing the new, Edin fought back the urge to cry. Ostagar had been the first time she had been treated as an equal, even a superior. She shook her head to clear her thoughts. I’m a duster, she thought to herself, and dusters don’t cry, we’re too tough for that.
“Your friend is waiting outside, he was veered between denial and grief since mother told him.”
73. I can't When I was fifteen, I told my mother that I wanted to go on my own adventure. My parents had fought the blight, my twin was heir to the throne and I wanted,deserved, my own legacy. As I approached her, I knew what I expected; to be told ‘no’ and sent back to my room. However, that’s not what I received. In fact, my mother’s response was something that took me years to finally solve.
“I will allow you to go, as long as you can both truthfully and correctly answer this question” I nodded, “Promise me that you will be safe.”
Without a second thought I responded “Of course, Mother.”
Mother shook her head with a smile. “Go back up stairs, Eleanor. You’re not ready for an adventure yet.”
Furious with my mother, I returned to my room and thought about the question. By the end of the evening, I decided that I wasn't strong enough yet. Eventually another year passed and once again I as
8. Innocence8. Innocence
Casually, I walked back to the courtyard, panting slightly after training. The warden recruits were coming along nicely, and soon they would partake in the Russian Roulette of the joining. However, that wasn’t important right then. I squinted my eyes, trying to find who I was looking for. I felt a smile spread across my face when I saw them.
Just across the way, Eleanor and Cailan were playing with Aoibheann and their cousin. I stopped to watch them play, but it wasn’t long till they caught sight of and started racing towards me. My grin widened as I fell down on my knees to greet the children sprinting towards me. ‘Mama! Mama!” I fell backwards as my five year olds lept into my arms, knocking me backwards.
“Hello, you two.” The twins grinned up at me and I ruffled their black hair affectionately.
“Auntie Emiline, weren’t you with the knights today?” I looked past the children on top of me to see Aoibh

Dear Mr. President: I need everyone's helpHey guys, I'm starting up a compilation product of questions that people have for President Obama and Governor Romney. I'm going to take as many questions from as many people from as many situations as possible and compile them into a letter/PowerPoint that will be sent to both Obama and Romney. I know people are tired of their questions being ignored, and having sent my first letter to the president when I was eight, I know how you all feel. Well, this time, I at least want to be heard. It doesn't matter what you want to tell them, no matter how up in the air it is, or embarrassing. We deserve to be heard and I for one am doing everything in my power to do so.
So if anyone out there has a question, quote, picture or video to send to these to men, please either comment here or message me what they are. No one's questions will be excluded, even if they are said by someone else, so fire away! I am the last person to judge anyone who has a question being gay, poor and among other things t
The AccidentThe door bell rang, and elsie's heart sank. There at her door was not her parents, who were hours late, but to solemn looking police officers.
"Elsie Stanford?" the older of the two men asked.
"Y-Yes, that's me. Is something the matter, officers?"
The older of the two men spoke again. "May we come in, you should sit down."
Elsie's head was spinning at those words. She'd heard those words all the time on the television, but that couldn't happen to her...could it. The fifteen year old nodded and led the two officers to the living room, sitting down in her usual comfy chair.
"Now, Ms. Stanford, we regret to inform you that your parents have been in a severe car accident. Your father died on impact and your mother is in the hospital, she won't make it through the night. We have been asked to bring you and your brother to the hospital."
"Y-You can't be serious, this h-has to be a joke right?" The officer shook his head. "I'm sorry." With that he nodded to his partner w
Metroid Other M: A RetrospectiveOr, how Other M does not fit into the Metroid canon.
It’s been almost four years since the release of the last Metroid game, and sadly this latest hiatus was kicked off, at least for me, on a very disappointing note.
I can’t even begin to explain how much of a disappointment this game was for me, but I’d probably attribute that to the ecstatic hype I allowed myself to fall into in the months before its release.
While the gameplay was pretty decent on its own, the linear style was a huge step down from the exploration aspect Metroid fans have come to cherish. I miss the days of Metroid gaming where I had the ever-present question in my mind; “Where the fuck do I go?”
Despite its linear take, Other M is a decently fun game to play, combining aspects of both the 2-D shooting style of the original games with hack-n-slash elements like dodging and “finishing moves”.
But while the gameplay in itself wasn’t terribly disappointing, (aside from th
Trade Ya - ReviewThis review will contain spoilers for those who have not seen the latest episode.
The premise of this story is that the ponies' friendship is tested when a trip to the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange goes wrong.
Something I feel the need to note in this episode is that this is a story that has no clear central figure, and instead goes on as an ensemble piece, with all of the main six character contributing to it. Stories like this are a rarity in this show as most episodes focus on one or two of the main cast with the rest providing a supporting role. That's no mark against it however as I've often felt that episodes like this can work, and indeed, several of my all-time favourite episodes, like "Best Night Ever", have been such ensemble stories. As such, it stands out as a fair unique outing for this season so far.
The idea that the girls' friendships would be under strain from what they go through in this episode strikes me as a fairly odd thing. Now, to be fair, I can understand how
Nukid101's Top 30 6th Generation Games: 15 - 11
Hey everyone. Many apologies for the wait on this one, but I’ve finally gotten it up. Here is part 4 of my countdown!
Nukid101’s Top 30 6th Generation Games: 15 – 11
Tales Of Symphonia (2003)
In my life as a video gamer, I have only played two Tales Of games. The first is obviously Symphonia, but the other is the more recent Tales Of Graces which was...okay, I guess. It wasn’t bad but not especially good either. It was a very generic, safe story with some decent characters and a standard battle system. Decent enough, but not what I was expecting from a series which is often given heavy praise for its grey morality, dark themes such as racism and genocide, and a villain who is likely a well intentioned extremist.
All of which is seen in Tales Of Symphonia. The game was for many – including myself – their first introduction to the series and could be considered the Final Fantasy VII of its franc
My Top Ten Favourite MoviesThere's no question about it. Movies are a massive part of my life. From the time I could crawl, there hasn't been a moment where I haven't enjoyed watching them. They've made me laugh, cry, think, and done so much for me. But, in spite of that, I've never actually tried putting into words which ones I hold the most dear to me. Well, that changes now, as I present to you my top ten favourite movies of all time. Please bear in mind that this is not a list of films I consider the greatest, as there are many films that I fully acknowledge that are better than the ones on this list, but nevertheless just don't click for me. These are just the ones that, for whatever reason, I enjoy above all others.
10 - Pacific Rim (2013):
We start things off with the most recent film you'll find on this list. I know it's a fairly "uncool" thing to do, putting such a modern film in a top ten list, but PR did a lot of things right for me. True, there are a lot of cliches and stereotype characters in here,
Mekakucity Actors episode 2 Review
Today's episode was an interesting one to say the least.
Today's episode follows Shintaro's younger sister Momo, an idol who can attract the attention of others.
The story at first follows the manga, with Momo going to class and having a conversation with her teacher before going out, but then the show pulls a fast one and gives an in-depth backstory on Momo, which has its advantages and disadvantages, but i'll get into that in a bit.
One thing I did like were the cutaway scenes where Momo sees people as inanimate objects, such as the classroom scene where Momo sees everyone as boomboxes. Its visual appealing, interesting, and does in a sense give insight into her Momo's character.
Characterwise we are introduced to three characters, Momo, Kenjirou, and Hibyia. Momo is a bit of an oddball character, but this might actually be the best portrayal of her out of all the Kagepro media. They devote a large section of the show to detailing Momo
My Thoughts on Breadwinners and Clarence
Okay, I'll start with the bad one:
Watching one episode was enough to convince me that this show sucks. The characters are annoying, the animation is crap, and even the names of the main characters make me feel a little uncomfortable: SwaySway and Buhdeuce? What kind of names are those?
In other words: I hate Breadwinners. I tried to like it, but I just can’t! Breadlosers would be a more appropriate title.
Seriously, the Modifyers gets rejected, but THIS gets green-lit?!
Now for the good one:
Clarence, however, seems like it’s gonna be a fun show… We’re just a few episodes in, but I hope it’ll be a decent show.
Clarence is about this kid named Clarence and how he usually spends his days. Clarence lives with his mother Mary, and has two best friends: Sumo, a bald crazy kid, who looks a lot like Beavis from Beavis and Butthead and Jeff, a nervous kid. There’s also Amy Gillis, whom I hope will be a recurring character, and Clare
OTD: V for Vendetta
(A man with a thin mustache and messy, black hair walked over to his closet. He pulled out a Kingdom Hearts T-shirt and slipped it on over a gray longsleeve shirt. He grinned as he put on some glasses.

With a shimmer, a man in black and a Guy Fawkes mask and sitting at a desk appeared in a red background.
“Good day, DeviantArt.” He introduced, “Allow me to apologize for this interruption. I, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any schmoe. But, in the spirit of commemoration, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful, bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could take some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are, of course, those who don’
Top Ten Best Metallica Songs They’re the guys who helped create a genre, became the most influential metal band from the Eighties, and started their own worst enemy (I’m referring to Megadeth, of course).
Metallica is my personal favorite band, along with various other metalheads, so I’ve decided to compile a list of their favorite songs. Please note this list takes the commercial success and fan reactions into consideration for each song, but I admit I am a little biased in writing.
This list was written in 2014, and the latest album was Death Magnetic, and the 10th studio album has not yet been released, so that could have affected the list in some possible way.
It hurt me putting this song on my list, since this is a personal least favorite of mine. I really don’t like most songs from the Load/ReL
