Debating English: How ToI'm here to discuss an ongoing topic on the internet: Debating (also known as "trolling" to most people). More specifically, I'm going to show you how NOT to debate English. In today's lesson, I'm going to focus on the word "gay," and other meanings it has acquired in the teenage language.
I was on YouTube, indulging my guilty pleasure (song parodies) when I came across this comment:
Adorendo: Nice voice, but the video is lame... no animation at all and it seems rather gay... lyrics filled with drama; an on going saga (I shortened this; the original comment was twice as long.)
The writer (and troll) inside me couldn't resist, so I replied:
KoriryuVEX: Adorendo - How can a video be gay? Videos don't have feelings or a gender, so I'm pretty sure that a video can't be gay
He replied, and the debate begun! (Guess who won?)
Adorendo: @KoriryuVEX - Gay = stupid... AKA: lame. Don't try to read more into it that what there really is.
As you probably guessed, this pushed me over th
Feather TouchSigh I hate my mother! She actually hates me. Me, her own daughter! I mean, what the hell's wrong with her?! She wouldn't even get in a car with me; she called a taxi for me, and made me pay! Whatever, I should just try to calm down. I get out of the taxi after paying the driver. He was such a pig, all he did when we arrived was stare at my chest. I get my suitcases out of the trunk and walk up to the first girl I see. "Um, e-excuse me, could you help me find room 8C? I'm terrible at reading maps." I start to blush as she turns to face me. Her face lights up as those words leave my lips.
"8C? No way! You're my roommate!" She steps forward swiftly and wraps her arms around me, and I can't help but smile. "I'm Hane Nijimaru, and you are?" She asks, looking into my eyes. God, she's beautiful. She's got the most perfect face I've ever seen, and her deep blue eyes are almost looking right into my soul. Her long, wavy blonde hair is blowing in the wind, which only seems to further comp
Eternia Chronicles Pt 24"Crap..." Kira muttered as blood trickled down her arm. Sathiel, on the other hand, remained completely unharmed. "I'm gonna have to use it!" Kira's body started to glow with energy as it slowly filled the air around the combatants. "Don't even think about it, Kira." Just as this is said, another stalagmite comes through the ground and cuts part of Kira's torso. She staggers back as Sathiel inches towards her. "You can't win, Kira. I've always been better than you." She draws her sword for the first time and raises it. "W-why are you doing this? We used to be best friends, are you seriously gonna kill me? Does our past mean nothing to you?!" Kira starts to cry for her former comrade, but Sathiel seems unshaken. "But of course. Of course our past means nothing to me. Just because we were once friends, doesn't mean I would have second thoughts about ending your life." Her blade is now raised to Kira's neck, while tears still flow from her face.
Kira closes her eyes. Her mi
The FourI'm going to go more into detail about the four. If it weren't for these people, I probably would've killed myself now, as much as I hate to say that. I'm not going to list the four's names, although they'll know who they are from reading these descriptions. The descriptions will be made in order of when they became one of the four, not when I met them.
The first of the four is a girl I've been great friends with since we were shorter than Verne Troyer. I was somewhat teased through my early years, and she was really my only friend for a while. Nowadays we remain best friends. We're pretty much siblings to each other, yet many other people seem to think we're together. What they don't know is that we were together for less than a week, and we didn't see each other in person during it. We both decided to end it, and we don't count it either. Nevertheless, she's my best friend, and I literally couldn't live without her friendship.
The second of the four is the woman who owns my heart, an
The Unseen"Look, just give me another chance... I see... Goodbye." I hang up the phone. That was my girlfriend, she dumped me over the phone 'cause she didn't want to see my face. She knows that i'm brittle. She knows that I'm the most emotionally unstable guy there is. My emotions get the better of me within seconds and before I know it I'm hitting the redial button. She picks up and without her saying anything I proceed to speak. "I'm not expecting an apology, or for us to make up, I just want to know why."
"Dude, give up, she don't want you no more." A man's voice speaks.
"Vince?" All I hear is that buzzing sound when someone hangs up, I don't remember what it's called.
My life sucks, to say in the least. My girlfriend just dumped me with my friend who's probably sticking to her right now. I'm living in a crappy appartment with a ratty roommate who's rarely here. My family refuses to help me get to college. So, you may be asking... How do I plan to live? In case you couldn't tell, I'm a write
Dragon Soul - Commission"Dragons sure are fascinating creatures, aren't they?"
I enter a bar at the edge of town. I'd heard shady things about this place, so I figured I'd come to try and dig up a useful piece of information. I eavesdrop on countless conversations, most of them being either idle chit-chat or just plain boring. "Have you been to that little trinket store across town?" Boring. "How much fricking money you got? Could you shout me a cold one?" Boring. "Hey, did you hear the rumour going around about that mountain?" Hello! I position myself so that I'm able to listen to this carefully. "Yeah, apparently there's some awesome treasure in a cave up there!" "Did you also hear about the Guardian?" "Yes, I heard that a huge dragon guards it!
How cool is that?" This is the kind of dirt I'd been hoping to dig up.
I head to the room I'd been renting for these past four days and gather my supplies. Whistle, check. Gun, check. Sword, check. Okay, I think I'm ready. I exit the town, trying to act as casual as
Hands of NatureThe gentle breeze of the forests. The edgy rocks of the cliffs. The sandy paths of the deserts. The cavernous deeps of the earth. Nature is a force to be reckoned with. Fight it and it will fight back. She who holds nature in her palms cannot be seen, only her disguise as the simple yet beautiful biomes of nature. And yet, the humans who inhabit this land have tried to claim it as their own. They construct landmarks over the top of the carefully laid out world with the illusion of ownership, and no one has stood up to them.
One day, within central America, a devastating twister hits an innocent town, taking the lives of millions as well as destroying every building in sight. When investigated, a large whole in the Earth was left where the town centre was. Josei Franklin, a twenty-six year old man in charge of exploring this crevice, discovers something rather unnerving. A lone woman, with long, green hair and a white robe sits on a rock, singing in some kind of foreign language. "Who a
Forever In DebtI can never repay you for how good you've been to me.
You're the best sister a girl could ever be.
In good times and bad, you've always been there.
Guiding me and supporting me with care.
I only hope that I'm that good to you.
Because you deserve a brother who can be there for you.
For as long as I can remember you've been my friend.
Through thick and thin, you've helped me along.
This path I'm on is safe once again.
Thanks to you I'm where I belong.
Eternia Chronicles Pt 23I don't like this place. Everything about this place sends chills down my spine. Is this really Death's Palace? It's quite scary. The energy flowing through this place really freaks me out. "Be careful, you two," Kira starts. "You never know who could be here, stay close." We make our way through the hallowed halls, trying to remain silent.
We hear a loud crash come from somewhere in the Palace, and we immediately know we're not alone. Tenchu grips my hand firmly and we begin to walk frantically to where we think Blade will be. "Sekijun!" We hear a voice yell; a female voice. The ground begins to rumble from under our feet, and the floor begins to crack. "Move!" Kira yells. We run with Kira, away from the crack, when a pillar of earth rises from underneath the floor.
"Kira Hakushi, why do you invade Hitarian lands?!" The girl asks, appearing from around the corner. She's rather tall, and she's wearing a blood-red cloak which covers parts of her head. "S-Sathiel? What are you doing here
Itachi Uchiha:A Loving Brother
"I'm sorry Sasuke....This is the Last Time."said Itachi smiling as the blood dripped down his face as he poked his brother for the last time.Then his body almost in slow motion fell to the ground.Before it fell Sasuke caught it, put his corpse on his back as Naruto,Sakura,and Kakashi came into view.He didn't say a thing as his team went with Kakashi.
"Sasuke-kun you alright?"asked Karin.
He ingored her simply glancing ahead at the village's gates.They walked though with Kakashi and Uchiha Itachi's body stood out like bright red in the white snow.He didn't say a word as he headed towards the Uchiha section of the village.His team would have followed but he held up his hand,and waved it towards Sakura and Naruto.They both looked startled as he did this,but they followed.
"Sasuke Why-"he cut Sakura off.
"First of all I was lied to by this fucking village and my home.Second my brother never meant to kill the clan."he said going into his house.He laid Itachi's body on his old bed upstairs a
