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
How to find Good Literature on DeviantArtHow to find Good Literature on Deviantart
Does anybody else find themselves frustrated when tearing through the countless pages of nonsense and fan-fiction and erotic prose with furry animals as the subjects? After a long, meticulous process, I’ve discovered a search method for discovering enjoyable pieces of literature on Deviantart.
1) Categorical Mayhem: Start by refining your search to a specific category in the search bar. Pick a certain category you feel interested in, then delve into browsing. Remember that some categories, such as General Fiction, are dumping grounds for loads of writing pieces that generally are just low quality and bad. Try to avoid those is possible, and specify your search down to the medium of writing (i.e. Short Story, Flash Fiction, etc.).
2) Title Savvy: While Fan-fiction is generally interesting to read in some regards, a lot of it is just bad. Like, really bad… I, personally, have found gems within the fan-fiction genre, sparkling diamonds
Review: Phineas and Ferb Star WarsReview: Phineas and Ferb Star Wars
I am a Star Wars fan, have been since I was eight years old. And I do enjoy Phineas and Ferb as well, however I too am a fan of Marvel comics, and I won't lie, I thought that Mission Marvel wasn't the best episode. And when I heard news of the future of Star Wars and word of this crossover, I had my doubts and it took much time for me to build up enthusiasm for it. I had a bad feeling about it.
That being said, what do I think after seeing it? Well...
I enjoyed it. I really did enjoy this a lot, I feel it totally makes up for Mission Marvel. I did greatly like how each Phineas and Ferb character wasn't actually cast as a Star Wars character, rather they were their own that interacted with the ones from Star Wars. I especially loved the scene of the boys interacting with Luke that referred to a cut scene from “A New Hope” where Luke briefly witnesses the opening battle behind the ships. I loved how every character was done, the boys i

Lucy Review - 500 Word Limit
Released in 2014 under the direction of Luc Besson ("Leon the Professional," "The Fifth Element," "Taken") on a budget of $40 million with distribution through Universal Pictures; "Lucy" is Besson's recent sci-fi action thriller that dares to blend fast-paced action and the metaphysical aspect of evolving to the next stage of human evolution: godhood…only minus the Star Child.
Living abroad in Taiwan, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is pressured by her boyfriend Richard (Pilou Asbaek) to deliver a suitcase full of synthetic drugs to a drug cartel run by Kang (Choi Min-sik). To deliver the drug, a bag is placed inside her lower stomach and sewn up to transport, but she is intercepted and held prisoner by a rival gang, causing the bag to rupture and leak inside her body, boosting her cerebral capacity past the fictional 10% and allowing her to realize the wonders of the universe around her and allowing her to read minds, move things, collect data at an incredible rate.

LOK: The Terror Within Review
Hey everyone. First of all, fuck Nickelodeon.
Their treatment of this series has been absolutely pathetic. This franchise is the best thing that’s ever happened to them – fuck Spongebob Squarepants - and yet when it comes to Korra they seem to want to take any chance they can get to screw them over.
Nick, these guys gave you The Last Airbender, arguably the greatest animated series ever made, you should let these guy do what they want on faith alone. Instead you seem to want to do anything in your power to fuck them over, and in this case blame them when ratings decline.
Nick, you’re Electronic Arts-ing your best ongoing show. For shame.
....with my rant finished, let us take a look at today’s new episode!
What I Liked
The GLORIOUS Fight Scene
With my annual weekly salivating of the shows fight scenes, this episodes may just be the best one yet. The usual compliments are all here; it was beautifully animated and well choreog
RWBY volume 2 episode 1 review
Rwby is back with a vengence.
The new RWBY episode was a great start to the season.
I'll start by saying that the animation has improved significantly. The quality of the models looks better, and I didn't see any visual hiccups either. The team at Rooster-teeth has really improved.
We start off with the Dust shop from last season, now open again (which might I add is a nice touch) and we meet two new characters, Emerald and Mercury. I like these two, they have a good dynamic. I also like Emerald's voice.
Then we get to see team RWBY again, where Ruby has planned one last day of fun before the new semester starts. We dont get to see these plans because a food fight erupts between teams RWBY and JNPR.
Rwby has great fight scenes, and this might just be the best one yet. It showcases the character's abilities while also providing a funny, yet action packed fight sequence.
We also get to se Sun again and we are introduced to Neptune, a membe
Steel sighed as he entered a room. He was, oddly enough, dressed in a gray uniform and had a dirty blonde wig.
“Well, GREAT, Ray. The entire costume party’s ruined.” Steel growled, stomping through his house in irritation as he entered a room, “I thought we agreed that I was going to be Luke Skywalker and YOU were going to be the evil, dark, sinister relative who’s always trying to control me. Y’know, like how things ACTUALLY work.”
At that instant, the lights shut down before being replaced by a dull, red light. Steel heard a familiar breathing noise and turned to see someone clad in a Darth Vader outfit. Oddly enough, a black beret was perched on his head.
“You have learned much, Young Steel...” Ray said, “But you are not a critic yet.”
Steel pulled out a lightsaber and turned it on, unsheathing a bright blue lightsaber. Ray did the same, only with a red one. Steel swung his blade as Ray blocked with his own. Steel beg
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review
(Caution: Spoilers below)
"Just shoot the fucking monkeys." - Jake Norvell
You know, it's funny; who'd have thought that the Planet of the Apes franchise would come back stronger than before and it's being praised to the high heavens like no tomorrow? I didn't but I can see why it is.
I was introduced to Planet of the Apes not via one of the movies but more like a documentary on the original franchise back in 2001 on AMC, months before the remake came out. As a kid, I was fascinated by what I was seeing, talking apes who ride horses and use guns and they have humans as slaves? What 10 year old didn't want to see that? Of course, I saw the remake first. Let me put it to you this way, before this film, Tim Burton has done better. He even said he'd jump out of a window before he'll make another Apes film. But I did eventually see the original film later on when I managed to get the VHS Five-Film collection for...Christmas, I believe. I kind of don't remember when but it was probably Chris

Oz The Great and Powerful Review
DJ was setting up a couch as he saw his crew come in: Street Master, Black Rose, Phantasma, Enigma and Moonfang. “So, what do you need us for, Deej?” asked Street Master, confused.
“Well, given that the Demon Critic thing is in need of some spicing up, I thought we could change it up a bit.” Said DJ.
“Oh yeah, how’s dat?” Street Master asked, confused as DJ smirked.
“Well…since you guys are my crew in this, why not join in? You know, help me review the movies and stuff and help me put everything together.” Said DJ, as the five looked at each other and then…all shrug.
“Sure/Why not?/Sound fun.” Said the group at once, as DJ smirks as the group began to sit infront of a TV.
“So what’s our first review as a team?” asked Moonfang as DJ shows the DVD.
