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
APH: Tips for female Italian names for the ItaliesI’ve noticed there’s some confusion in the fandom about Italian female names fitting for the Italies so let’s clarify some things.
The so called ‘official’ names, Alice and Chiara, aren’t official names. They were suggested to Himaruya by a fan and he shared the suggestion but later on made a post in which he declared he didn’t want to make them official, just to share them and that everyone was free to use whatever he prefers.
So of course, for all Himaruya cares you can use Russian names or Martian names for them. However, if you want to use Italian names that will better point out how those two characters are representations of Italy and not of some other country here there are some things that might interest you.
Let’s start with the name suggested:
Alice and Chiara are two Italian popular names.
Many seem to have the idea Alice isn’t an Italian name because it’s written in the same way as its English version. Well,
Review: TDPI character developmentSo here's my review for Total Drama Pahkitew Island! WARNING: SPOILER ALERT
The overall casting was pretty cute and interesting, despite the fact that people say that most of them appear flat and one-dimensional. However, I beg to differ as quite a few of them have great character development. One of the most remarkable thing about this season is the increased versatility of the protagonists and antagonists: No one is purely good or evil.
Rightfully, the first four contestants eliminated didn't have much character development:
Beardo and Leonard were pretty much just fillers. Don't really think there's much to say about them, seriously. Amy is a villain as she is mean towards her sister, but apart from that, she is not much but a stepping stone to Samey's development. And Rodney is just plain weird.
Samey is the shadow twin of Amy. Her life is so damaged and bullied by Amy that she just accepted that. When Jasmine prompted her to stand up to Am
Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars Review Prologue
DISCLAIMER: I want you guys to keep in mind that this is NOT a review of the crossover itself. It is a description of what the crossover is about, how it came to be, and what I am looking forward too as well as my thoughts on the information so far. To those who have seen my prologue to my Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel review, you are probably aware of that. The review of the crossover itself will probably be up sometime in late June or early August depending on when I do see it. And like Phineas and Ferb Save Summer, it is gonna air on demand but I do not know if I will be able to see it on demand. I was lucky with Save Summer but I don’t know if I will be able to see the crossover on demand. But hey I will be able to see it on Saturday if ti comes to that. It will be worth the wait. But with that said, sit back and read my thoughts on what I think of the idea and premise of Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars. Enjoy.

A Guide to ConventionsIt’s coming around to be just about the end-ish of convention season and most of the major cons around where I live are coming up, and I’m getting pretty hyped about Otakon coming up in 17 days myself! So, what better way to feed into the hype than to make an advice list?
1. Bring your own food
Speaking from experience here! Convention food is pricey and all around not worth it. If your hotel room doesn’t have a mini-fridge, bring non perishable things like trail mix, granola bars, jerky, generally healthy stuff. Most hotel rooms will have something like a coffee maker or a microwave. Take advantage of this! Bring instanoodles and ramen with you. Your wallet will thank you for it. Or if you don’t want to do that, try the app called Yelp to see what’s in the area. It is important that you eat at least two square meals a day, especially since at a convention, you’re going to be on your feet basically all the time. Keep yourself energized.
My Star Wars Fan Questionnaire AnswersJedi or Sith?
Jedi, but I don't much care for the "no attachment" rule. Mace can lick my lightsaber for all I care, I'm NOT turning Dark anytime soon.
Let's see: There's Tatooine, Manaan, Tython, Coruscant, Kamino, Mustafar, Taris, Dantooine, Kashyyyk, Nar Shaddaa, Alderaan, Hoth (even thought I HATE the cold,)and Geonosis.
Type of lightsaber, Lightsaber color and fighting style?
Single bladed straight hilted saber outfitted with cortosis to ensure that it doesn't get snapped in two during a fight. Color would be blue. My fighting styles would mostly consist of Shii-Cho and Ataru, while blending and modifying the two styles to fit the needs. I'd also apply a little Djem-So when in a pinch and would try to take up Vapaad. Probably one of the few things I actually respect Mace Windu for. The other being his purple lightsaber.
I'm kind of partial to Wookiees, Geonosians and Talz. I also like Selkath, Togruta, Twi-leks, Ithorians and Ortolans. I also kind
LOK: Old Wounds/Original Airbenders Review
Hey everyone. Welcome yet to again my another review of the recent Legend Of Korra episodes! Without further ado, let us begin!
What I Liked
Korra & Bolin Metalbending
Korra learning to Metalbend was a smart move because when you think about it her not knowing it is a significant gap in her bending vocabulary. It’s certainly questionable that Lin or no one else through to teach her this, but now Suyin is teaching her the basics and – being the Avatar – she gets it quite quickly.
Bolin on the other hand has apparently tried and failed in the past but desperately wants to. It’s a bit out of nowhere – as is Toph being his idol – but it’s comething I can get behind. I love Bolin, but I realise now that the way the creators are developing Bolin is that they seem to be throwing whatever they have and hoping it’ll stick, and naturally Bolin learning Metalbending is something that can stick.
Suyin/Lin Beifong Conflict
Nukid101's Saints Row IV Review
In my review of Saints Row The Third I probably gave many of you the impression that I hated that game, but that isn’t the case. One thing I can never take away from that game was how fun the whole experience playing it was, and I’d take it over the majority of the GTA clones out there, including the very original Saints Row.
That said...yea, The Third simply tried too hard to recapture the magic of Saints Row II but clearly without any understanding of what made that game work. Both games were whacky and farcical, but Saints Row II had a sense of grounding and coherency that made the games zany moments truly standout be that extra special. Saints Row The Third by comparison felt forced and incoherent; a game that’s sole goal was to just constantly top itself in a whacky department.
While some people adored the changes The Third made, many agreed with me that this was a step down for the series, so when it was announced that a piece of DLC for The Third
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
Cult Corner Review - The Starving Games
Welcome to Cult Corner, the co- oh fuck it, I'm not gonna bother with an intro…
How is this even on Netflix? Why is it even on Netflix? Is it because it's available through all other rental sources and you just needed to convince people to join on your services? Cause that's worth your money right?
Why am I even wasting my time with this garbage? I'll tell you why, it's because Dim432 did not do this movie justice.
Oh go ahead and read his review, I'll put a link down below even, but know that if you are going to read it, expect a review that is practically a rip-off of the Nostalgia Critic's "The Last Airbender" review only without any actual humor or actual analysis to go with it.
And that is the real reason why I'm doing this review, to basically cover his ass and do what he SHOULD have been doing which was analyzing the movie rather than focusing on trying to emulate a Nostalgia Critic episode. This "Review" more than other he built up as being "the biggest thing" and
