Wrang-Rung-Ring did a bad bad thingThis fiction is based in IDW'S More Than Meets The Eye series. Just a warning; I haven't actually READ any of it. Seriously. I've just been hearing about it and occasionally spotting a page over the shoulder of my friend, and I fell in love with Rung, so I had to write some. So, here is something I did a little bit ago to get it out of my system.
It was so odd, these newcomers who hovered their ship on the Lost Light. A medic, a bounty hunter, and a tiny mech whose purpose none could identify. The little one and the massive bounty hunter were hardly seen apart, but the medic... Rung had been attempting to get the bot alone since their arrival. The thin, lanky flier had all manner of quirks about him that that psychologist mech was just itching to explore. However, he was never able to get close to the reclusive mech, once he left his ship in the morning he disappeared seemingly without a trace.
There had only been one condition; one only, from the ship's crew. Do n
.:Malade Francoeur:.The following fan-fiction contains spoilers for the end of A Monster in Paris. This is a Francoeur/Lucille fiction, rated PG for mild suspense.
Ever since the return of Francoeur, everything around Paris had changed. The Rare Bird exploded in popularity, many people from all around France wanting to see and hear the amazing being that was the giant flea. He accepted the attention very well; though he was still overly protected by his friends. Very rarely did they allow anyone to photograph Francoeur, though they did sell pictures of him as post-cards and fliers.
Tonight, like many other nights previous, the cabaret show was due to start any minute. Lucille wriggled into her tiny white dress, while her aunt sat back, prepared with the harness that held the singer's angelic wings into place. "There!" The plump woman said sweetly, pressing the curved sections on the hidden harness a bit more onto her niece's shoulders to make sure they were secured into place.
That EyepatchHaving been 'repaired', or rather, patched up, by the medical staff on the Nemesis, Breakdown found himself less than pleased with the work. He ached inside and out; his chest still had a thick scar where it had been split in two. And all that could be done for his missing optic was a piece of dark metal bolted into place to cover the socket.
“We don't have spare parts like that,” Knockout drawled out in an uncaring manner, flicking one wrist. He seemed more interested in getting a new coat of enamel on himself rather than putting any real effort into the repairs of his bot-shield. “This isn't a chop shop, you know.” He added, walking past the large blue mech with an air of superiority. The one-eyed jokes had already run thin, Knockout had used all of them he could think of in just the short time it had taken to put in the shoddy repairs.
Breakdown groaned lowly, shifting himself off the elevated repair table. He pushed away the Eradicons who had been attemp
.:Transformers Prime: Rogue Bounty:.
The following is a fan-written passage designed to read like an episode of Transformers: Prime. It introduces new characters and a possible arc for later on. It is also designed to fit into the current canon story of the series. This "episode" would take place between "Operation: Bumblebee Part 2" and before "Armada". This is an example for a type of commission fiction I am open for.
Proximity censors blaring, Ratchet was the first on the scene to see that Special Agent Fowler had landed atop the Autobot's base. It was nearly three in the morning, human time. Normally the Autobots were taking their rest at this time, though Arcee was out on patrol. Pulling themselves with much haste from their resting berths, at first thinking that the Decepticons may have found their hideout.
Alas, it was instead a rather furious looking Agent Fowler, though for once he didn't seem to be placing blame on the Autobots. Instead, he said nothing, his breath coming out in heavy pants.
Queen Chrysalis' Return -Ch 1
Warning, the following contains spoilers for the Royal Wedding episodes.
As the Changelings began preparing for a feast upon the population of Canterlot, all chaos broke loose. Ponies fleeing every direction, looking for a way to escape the insect like creatures that were chattering excitedly just behind them, forcing them to rush past their physical limits to find safety. The exits of the city were left unguarded. With the shield shattered, any pony could leave in addition to the assailants getting in.
One pony in particular was already at the Western exit by the time the shields had been broken down. Several others joined her; after witnessing the Queen of the Changelings, Chrysalis, viciously take down their dear Princess, many of the attendees of the wedding quickly began to flee. Once the pulsing violet protection spell shattered, the frantic Equestrians waiting at the gates bolted from one of Canterlot's exits. Other groups of ponies rushed out in a hysterical group from t
Woman in BlackOverall rating: 3/5
Set Design: 4/5
The following review contains spoilers.
Woman in Black is a CBS film starring Daniel Radcliffe. The story, in short, is a small town who is cursed by an apparition who, when seen, forces children to commit suicide. Set in late 1800's, we start in with seeing three young girls halt in their tea party to jump out their attic window.
This movie had the makings of something excellent, but it came up short because of how poorly the characters were written. I am aware that it is based on a novel, but I have not read it, therefore it will have to stand on its own. To be blunt, most of the characters are flat. Especially Radcliffe's character, Arthur Kipps. The character itself is very bland and lacking all forms of self-preservation, but even so he is at least played well.
Having a very bad case of "Don't go in the closet!", this horror movie mostly holds itself up on jump scares.
Daring Don't - ReviewThis review will contain spoilers for those who have not seen the latest episode of MLP.
The story of this episode is that Rainbow Dash and her friends help their favourite author, A.K. Yearling, to finish her latest book.
Let me start this review by saying that I couldn't help but feel a slight disappointment with it. Not the episode itself, let me be perfectly clear about that. No, what I was disappointed with was that this episode did not seem to further the story arc concerning the mysterious box introduced in the season opener. With that arc used during last week's episode, I had high hopes that the episodes of this season would follow a consistent season-long story arc, which is something they’ve never done before. I know it's unfair to hold something like that against this episode, as it was something I was hoping for rather than what I got, but the sentiment remains.
The story we do get however, is one that I enjoyed, as it concerns something I'd hoped they'd be touching
Nukid101's Top 30 7th Generation Games: 5 - 1
Hey everyone, back already for the finale! I imagine it must seem weird to get out three parts almost back to back like this, and much of it boils down to me being ready to start my 2013 countdowns, and I’ve simply been in a writing mood. So with that said, here is the final part of my countdown!
Nukid101’s Top 30 7th Generation Games: 5 – 1
Xenoblade Chronicles (2011)
Many of you who haven’t played this game have likely still heard the talk around it. How it’s one of the greatest JRPGs ever made, how it’s the best JRPG of this generation, sometimes it’s even been called the Final Fantasy VII of this generation, it’s THAT much of a game changer. I obviously wholeheartedly agree with some of these, but some of you are no doubt wondering why Xenoblade - a spiritual successor to Xenosaga and more importantly, Xenogears - has garnered such praise.
The answer is truthfully quite simple:
The Best Games of the 7th Generation: 5-1
5) Spec Ops: The Line
War films like to show war is hell. Which is fine. Film, after all, isn’t an interactive medium, all it can do is show. That’s its function. Sometimes, it can be quite effective that way. It provides a safe distance between viewer and the world of the film. They can observe just close enough to empathize with the plight of the main characters onscreen and get the point hammered home.
But Spec Ops: The Line illustrates the power of the interactive medium we call gaming… by forcing the player into active participation.
And unlike, say, most average military shooters; the player doesn’t have the context that frames their actions under the lenses of patriotism or heroism. It strips that context away to reveal the ugly innards of the military shooter genre underneath. It reveals just how truly awful this vein of escapist fantasy truly is.
As I said before, we must allow games the right to have their own aims and goal
Voltz' Christmas Carol: Il Natale Che Quasi Non Fu
Alec: (sleeps comfortably in his bed, his hand on the handle of a Ghostbuster proton pack, a light shines on him, the pillow covering his head, Alec quickly sits up, charging the pack) "AAAAGGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!"
HailtotheChimp: (wearing a bed sheet and holding a flashlight) "Sweet Robert E. Howard! Volts, it's me! Hail!"
Alec: (turns off the proton pack) "Oh, Hail. Don't do that. You could have been burned/melted or whatever this thing does to humans."
HailtotheChimp: "Where did you even get that thing?!"
Alec: "I reviewed Ghostbusters so I got a proton pack out of it. Don't you get stuff from the movies you review?"
HailtotheChimp: "Um…sometimes…I mostly just give them up after I review the movie to make room for my dorm room."
Alec: "Well, you're missing out."
HailtotheChimp: "I…I'm gonna go now…" (he walks out of Alec's room, he returns quickly to shine a light on Alec, hoping to see what he looks like without the mask, only to find he's wearing a nightcap a
Gender Specific This article was about the use of gender specific toys in marketing. I could go on for a long time about this subject because I have a huge opinion on it. While many people don’t see what’s wrong with having gender specific things, even saying that, “That’s how it’s supposed to be.” They don’t realize that the only reason they think that’s how it’s supposed to be is because they grew up with these gender specific things. So at a young age they were taught that girls were supposed to like pink, frilly princesses and boys were to like football and action figures. Even some of the toys aiming toward females, like baby dolls, are trying to push small children into a mindset prepared for mother hood. While many toys aimed at males are labeled as “gross”. Like gooey things and ugly monsters. Because of these things being given to children based on their sex, it makes them
Reaper High Review - Contest EntryReaper High Review
For those of you who enjoy the many cartoons of the past and present, ranging from “The Powerpuff Girls”, to “Xiaolin Showdown” and “Ed, Ed’n Eddy” to name a few, what comes to your mind? That would be the memorable characters. People love the characters for their various personalities and motives. Like the Powerpuff girls, they became the heroines for young girls of the modern age and are also relatable. And despite being created from a science experiment, they proved themselves to be just as human as any of us. And from “Xiaolin Showdown”, a hero is a hero, but everyone loves a great villain. And Jack Spicer is a villain whom despite his bumblings, gets up after every defeat and proves to be a threat to the heroes with his genius in robotic engineering. But even Jack Spicer walks down the middle as he does have a good side in him, but still prefers to stay evil. Whether good, evil, or even in between, the
STH 255 reviewNow onto another exciting issue of the Sonic the Hedgehog comics part 3 of Countdown to Chaos. This issue was quite interesting but let us recap on what happened during this issue. Again to remind the reader, please support the original release.
Sonic and Tails make an aerial drop into Metropolis zone in search of Bunnie. They find her and tell her what had been going on their missions of finding the other freedom fighters including the fact they need to find Sally Acorn and Amy Rose. Bunnie tells them of her mission. She was to capture a new shield generator Eggman’s Research and development division at Metropolis was working to replace the damaged one on the Death Egg. She figures that Sky Patrol would need the generator to face the Death Egg. Sonic, Tails and Bunnie (whom has her robotic parts back) battle through Egg Army and Badniks of Metropolis Zone (the unholy trinity of badniks; Asterons, Shell crackers, and Slicers). They successfully obtain the generator using the Eart
So you want to write a story? - Writing guideSo, a lot of people seemed to like some of my writing guides and tutorials(mostly on other sites where it’s noticed and suffers less competition, but hey, whatever). So, I’m trying to do some more, see if they help anyone. If they do, well great, I guess I can say I accomplished something. I don’t think this was written all that well but whatever, here it is.
But where to begin???
First, to have a story, you have to have…well…an idea! An idea and a little creativity.
Sometimes you get an idea that doesn’t quite work when you first think of it, but don’t worry.
I have quite a lot of ideas. Some work, some don’t. Some don’t work until you spend a lot of time thinking about and polishing them. These ideas don’t have to be grand, they can be incredibly small.
They can start with a simple thought or the punch-line of a joke(my next book after Fosterling may end up being based off a very creative and hilarious joke that pas
Meatloaf RecipeMy friend Amy, she loved to make this with me. This is my own recipe I invented.
1 1/2 to 3 lbs ground beef
1 cup milk
1 cup ground up cheddar Cheeze-Itz
2 1/2 tablespoons of Onion Powder*
McCormick’s Hamburger Spice*
*For the Onion Powder, keep in mind it’s a REPLACEMENT for chopped onion. Season to taste.
*Season to taste for Worchestire and Hamburger Spice. Also steak and stuff spice from McCormick’s works too.
Heat your oven to 350.
Put cheeze-its into a plastic bag, leaving it open. Then with a glass bowl, roll it over the crackers until they’re a fine, crushed up consistent size. I make mine really fine, almost like the powder at the bottom of cereal; but it’s up to you!
Add everything to a large bowl. Mix together by hand. I like to use plastic bags around my hands to keep from touching the raw meat itself, but you don’t have to, as long as your hands are clean! Make sure to take off your rings.
Once it’s all pro
