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
Scary As Hell Cartoon Characters #2 Mr. Resetti
Scary As Hell Cartoon/Video Game Characters #2 Mr. Resetti, by YoshiWii1.
Hello my fellow Video game fans! It's YoshiWii1 here. Today, I have decided to make another Scary As Hell Cartoon/Video Game character review. In this reviews, I will explain who the character is for those of you who don't know? I will be sharing my opinion, the scare factor of the character, where this character appears, etc. Please be advised that I am NOT responsible if you guys get nightmares from these characters. I hope you will enjoy this review and I hope you guys don't get too scared from the character?
==Who Is Mr. Resetti?==
For those of you have never played the Animal Crossing series from Nintendo? Mr. Resetti is a recurring character that appears manually. He isn't an antagonist (there is no antagonists in the Animal Crossing series unless you count Redd aka Crazy Redd as one since he is a shady Black Market fox.) To meet Mr. Resetti you must do one of the following:

Writing Rants: Short ChaptersI've started "Writing Rants" to let out some steam about various problems with online stories (*cough cough* WATTPAD *cough cough*). This series is meant for every reader/writer. No matter if you're looking for ways to improve your writing, if you've also wanted to rant but could never find the words, or if you simply like rants in general, I hope you will enjoy this series.
Sometimes I will use "Soul" (my fanfiction) as an example for things, but in no way does this mean that I think it's perfect, because it's far from it.
On with the rant!
Let me clarify one thing: I know it's hard to write long chapters, especially for new writers. When I started writing, my chapters were only a couple hundred words long. Heck, I'd be happy if I managed to get over a thousand, let alone the 2000-4000 words I currently write for "Soul". So don't assume that short chapters are automatically bad, because that's not what I'm trying to say. It just really annoys me sometimes when they're short for no
Somepony to Watch Over Me - ReviewThis review will contain spoilers for those who have not seen the latest episode.
The premise of this episode is that Applebloom tries to convince Applejack that she doesn't need her to constantly watch over her all the time.
From that brief description of the premise, you can tell that this episode is going to heavily feature the relationship between Applebloom and Applejack, and on that note I couldn't be more excited for this episode. These two were literally the first siblings introduced in the series and yet, in spite of that, we've had virtually no time whatsoever devoted to their relationship aside from episodes showing the two more as side-characters, or how Applejack regards her family as a whole. This always bugged me as we've seen in the past that episode focusing on siblings, like in "Sisterhooves Social" or my personal favourite episode "A Canterlot Wedding", that such stories can be very good. As such, regardless of what else I may feel about it, I praise the episode for
Logic's Expectations: Rebuild of Evangelion 4.0
To be perfectly blunt, I'm certain that this movie will suck.
Normally, I'm the guy who won't bash an unreleased product and will wait and see before I give a final opinion on if it's good or bad. I went into Soul Calibur V assuming that it would be awesome because previous games in the Soul Calibur series were awesome. I wasn't a huge Final Fantasy fan, but I didn't go from Final Fantasy XII into Final Fantasy XIII expecting the latter to suck, especially since I thought XII was great. I also didn't go into Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 expecting it to suck after the immensely satisfying experience that I had watching Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0...
Considering my views on Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0, I believe that its fair to go ahead and call the final Rebuild movie a dud.
However, I want you to understand that I didn't come to this assumption lightly and I actually tried to pick at straws and potential ways that this next installment could in fact be good. But Rebuild 3.0 left such a mess
KK12's Top 30 6th Generation Games 25-21
Loyal Subjects, I'm the Keyblade King and let's open the door on the second part of my countdown to the best games the sixth generation of consoles has to offer.
SUPER MARIO SUNSHINE
“What?! You’ve just put THE Super Mario Sunshine at only a mere number 25 on a list of the greatest of the sixth generation games! For shame!...Asshole” –Voice of the Internet.
Yeah, yeah, I know. Let me try to defend myself on this one to the legions of fans that this game has.
To start off, it was a really difficult game to place. It’s not that it’s bad. On the contrary, the game looks amazing for its time, has a great soundtrack and gave a lot more character to the guy whose only skill was once upon a time; jumping. This game was one of the first Mario games to have proper cutscenes and voice acting. It was also the first appearance of Bowser Jr. and one of the first Mario
A Garfield fan reviews the Garfield movie
A Garfield fan reviews The Garfield Movie
For as long as I can remember, I have been a very huge fan of Garfield. My parents owned a couple of the reprint books when I was a kid, and I loved to read and re-read them over and over again. I watched the Garfield and Friends TV show whenever I could, and I also got a lot of the Garfield books put out alongside the comics, like the Pet Force series. I probably got on the nerves of my parents and a lot of my friends just talking about Garfield constantly. And I loved his cartoons so much that he was one of my biggest inspirations to become a cartoon artist myself. If it weren’t for Garfield, I probably would have never set foot into art school, and you probably would have never seen me here on Deviant Art (or Furaffinity, or whichever website you‘re reading this from).
So you could imagine when around 2002 or 2003 how excited I was when the Garfield website announced a movie adaptation. Around this time the comic wa

Steel waved at an anthropomorphic skunk, who was practicing martial arts. She smiled sweetly at that.
Steel entered a game room, where an alien tiger wearing a red Hawaiian shirt and jeans was playing a video game. Steel slapped him across the head as he walked back.
Everyone has things to hide?
Steel froze as he saw a white cat-like creature with small, pink eyes a
