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
Nukid101's Top 30 Comic Book Films: 5 - 1
Hey everyone. Well here we are, the top 5! What are my personal top 5 comic book films? Let’s find out!
Nukid101’s Top 30 Comic Book Films: 5 – 1
5) Watchmen (2009)
Boy do I like the controversial ones, huh?
For many people the film adaptation of Watchmen is a travesty of a film that had the audacity to change things from the graphic novel with a certain big change to the ending. More than once I’ve even seen it on lists of ‘worst comic book films’.
I however think it’s a masterpiece, and a damn near perfect adaptation of the infamous graphic novel.
If I haven’t made it clear already, I know that adaptations are not considered good solely by how accurate they are to the source material. Films and comics are very different beasts, and the best comic book films have understood how to balance the changes films need whilst also sticking true to the comics. Watchmen is one such film; a film that truly brings the comic b

10) The Dark Knight (2008)
I doubt anybody is surprised to see The Dark Knight on this list, but what I daresay some of you are surprised that it did not even reach my personal top five. Heck, I’m sure some of you half expected it to be number 1.
The answer to that is that for all the many great things about this film, there are two things holding it back for me. Two things I can’t really let go of, despite my love for the film. My biggest problem with the film – and to a greater extent The Dark Knight Rises - is that it is pretty pro-neoconservative.
Don’t get me wrong; I don’t begrudge the film for having a political stance (lord knows more films and shows need to have the balls to do so), but I am free to criticise the stance said film takes, and I take serious issue with some of the opinions this fil
Everything Wrong With Thunderbirds-Opening narrative to explain the basis of the film’s source material cliché.
-The Thunderbirds are only called by their proper name International Rescue once in the film.
-The animated opening sequence is more kickass than the rest of the film.
-The film is meant to be a very loose prequel to the Thunderbirds series, but it decides to make Alan a stupid whiny and brainless doe-eyed moron rather than being a spirited, adventurous ex-motor racing champion.
-Caught daydreaming in class cliché.
-The drawing Alan did on Thunderbird #1 seems to be a bit off from the same rocket ship he spends most of time hanging around with.
-Sadistic teacher cliché.
-Alan seems to keep forgetting the number one rule of being part of International Rescue is that it is meant to be top secret, and yet keeps talking about it in public.
-Just because he is Brains’ son does not mean Fermat has to have the same characteristics.
-Also, what kind of name is “Fermat” for a chi

The Chaos Critic Rants about Fairly Odd ParentsOH man I have a lot to say here . . . this is going to take a long time, but at least I remember and know enough of this show to get things I find problematic with this show across. I also admit this review may get . . . picky, but hey, this show's gotten worse in years. I might do a top favorite of my episodes, but that's for another time. This is separate from my Spongebob reviews because I feel I'll get them mixed up if I do them together. I might just start calling them Chaotic Reviews, but I think someone else has that title. BUT, whatever . . . Butch Hartman and Nick own Fairly Odd Parents and I won't waste my breath on that. Please enjoy this riff!
What can I truly say about this show?
It had charm, class, and funny moments. It introduced the running gag to me, while introducing me to the concepts of rules, magic and conscience.
This show ruled.
The Fairly Odd Parents was originally a few shorts on a show calle
Riffing the Reef with 'Truth or Square'Eleven is like seven, but with four tacked on. This special is like crap, but . . . well, you get the picture. Stephen Hillenburg owns Spongebob and I just critique it. Please enjoy.
The tenth anniversary of Spongebob.
Oh man, I remember when I first saw the show in 1999 . . . it was funny, glorious, and it had some of the best animation on TV back then.
. . .
Well, if you've read my other reviews, you know how I feel about it now. So, I'm not gonna hold back here.
When the special for the 10th anniversary of Spongebob was announced, I was hyped up as heck to see it. I had grown up on Spongebob, and had stopped watching some of the newer episodes because they freaked me out. Nick overhyped the special with Burger King toys, special screenings, and a marathon dedicated to the BEST Spongebob episodes ever.
That was when I had my first win of "Band
My Godzilla (2014) Review
Well guys without any delay let's get into it.
In 1954, the United States Armed Forces are assembled to witness a secret nuclear test. A hydrogen bomb, decorated with a monster insignia, is detonated when a giant creature emerges from the ocean. In 1999, Project Monarch scientists Ishiro Serizawa and Vivienne Graham investigate a colossal skeleton in a collapsed mine in the Philippines. But what they found were two crystals, that in the end seem to have taken the form of monsters. Those monsters happen to be the MUTOs. Those MUTOS, attack the factory, which ends with the death of Elle Brody. 15 years later, and as the MUTOs make things a lot worst for the humans, it's the moment where the gigantic and mysterious monster, known to the world as Godzilla shows up to destroy them.
While Godzilla doesn't have much screentime, his appearance are easily the most momentous parts of the movie so far. The desing and his growls a

The TrundlerThe waste land behind the fire station is always silent. No birds sing there, and even the wild rabbits and feral cats avoid it. Weedy wildflowers nod their seasonal heads in the breeze. Lying fallow in the midst of housing developments, shopping malls, the new movie theater — the vacant lot stands out like a knife wound on a woman’s placid face, shocking, brazen, ugly.
It is always empty. Except for one thing: a ragged heap of old trash, all nasty black tar paper and vicious snarls of rusted wire, car parts and broken glass and other junkyard jetsam. The embodiment of injury waiting to happen, an invitation to a tetanus shot... the city never hauled it away. No one ever wants anywhere near it; it radiates an eerie sense of calculating watchfulness.
And at night, it wanders.
When darkness falls, and the last cars heading into the hives of tract housing stop illuminating the asphalt with moving-picture shadows, it… unfolds. Bitter, broken tangles, grotesquely mov
Inspector Wolf The old lady was dead. I could smell it before I even got into the house. The whole place reeked of adrenaline, sweat, fear, copper and steel. He’d dropped her right in her living room. Chopped and chopped until she stopped moving. But I could tell I was getting close. This had been done in a hurry, and the killer didn’t have the time to clean up after himself like he usually did.
Across the room, the phone rang. The shrill sound set my teeth to grinding, but I ignored it. Instead I followed the killer’s bloody footprints into the back bedroom. He’d climbed out the window. If I hurried, I could catch up to him and end this disgusting spree he was on.
Then the answering machine kicked in. “Hi, Gramma! It’s Red. Sorry I’m running late. I kind of lost track of time. But don’t worry. I packed the picnic and I’m heading out the door right now. Love you.”
She’d been expec
