      It just occurred to me that maybe I should do more on this site than watch videos and lurk threads.

      Who? Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am, is a man in a mask.

      ...I can see that.

      Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man, who he is.

      Oh.

      But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace soubriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.

      Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate.
      This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the “vox populi†now vacant, vanished.
      However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified,
      and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice
      and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
      The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain,
      for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
      Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose,
      So let me simply add that it’s my very good honour to meet you..

      And you may call me V.

    • Jack and Jill

      Alright, so I was really bored one day, and I worte up this fucked up version of Jack and Jill. It's not the best of my writing, with many errors, bad plot pacing, just really choppy and jumpy everywhere. But it's a rough draft, and gets the point across, really. The story is continued in the first comment.

      “Is there anything you need grandma?†whispered a young man with green eyes and brown hair.
      “No! No, no no, no, nothing! Not in a material sense, anyway, hehe, I want you to fetch… Me a pail of water! I… Bring the rest of the village, to my deathbed, while I sing a merry poem! A story of life… A story of death… I want them all to know…†came the reply, delirious, yet graced with a wisdom the boy could not help but obey.
      Standing slowly from his grandma’s deathbed, he gazed around the drab, musty room. Though clean, it seeped with a sense of filth, but not a cobweb or speck of dust could be viewed in the room. Though large, the room felt as though the walls were inching on him every time he turned his back, ready to devour him as if in the stomach of a beast. Though nearly empty, his grandma’s deathbed found quite the profound presence in the room, seeming to be the masterpiece of a grotesque museum.
      Whoever thought of building this bed, he thought, knew exactly what senile granny wanted. The dusty, brown-red color of the sheets entangled about her slim, bony body, as though stained with old blood. The semi-transparent cloth surrounding the bed gave an aura of power to her, a sense of importance. But what troubled him most, was the color of the rest of the bed. Black, pitch black. Not a spot of sunlight shone, not a sparkle of brightness. As if inviting death to take her life any moment, mused the boy, and with one last look, departed to gather the residents of the village.
      A few moments later, as the villagers arrived, the boy quieted their rambunctious nature, wishing to hear this story of the deathbed. And when all had quieted down, the old woman spoke.
      “This tale, most of you have heard in your childhood, not knowing what it meant, what really happened. Know the truth of the story, and pass it down to your children, them down to theirs. Do not let this story die with you.â€Â
      The villagers nodded solemnly, swearing an oath to pass it on, though wry grins appeared on many’s faces, and a few eyes rolled towards the ceiling. She continued without noticing, or caring, capturing each and every mind, and trapping it into the world that used to be hers alone to explore.

      ***************

      “Get back ‘ere ya piece of cow dung!†roared a tall, burly man, so hairy and unclean that Jack was sure he was his father’s twin.
      Regardless of the man shouting and chasing after them, Jack dashed through the streets, quickly blending in with the crowd. He glanced around to make sure his pursuer had left, and walked home, a wide grin on his face at the prize he had captured. His mischievous green eyes darted around, checking for any sign of his father. Satisfied, he walked into the damp, small hut, eager to share his spoils with his sister and mother.
      “What do you have in your hands?†asked his sister, Jill.
      Jack didn’t respond, instead tearing into the warm cinnamon bread, breaking it into three parts for the three of them. Jill squealed in delight, and took a ravenous bite. His mother however, squinted suspiciously at the bread.
      “Why aren’t you eating mother?†asked Jack, who had stuffed half his piece into his mouth, lining his rough, broad face and his wavy brown hair with crumbs.
      She shook her head, sending the long, luminous strands of orange hair cascading about her slender body.
      “Nothing much. It’s stolen again, isn’t it?†she asked.
      Jack sighed. It usually came to this, but in the end, his mother always ate anyway.
      “You taught me not to lie mother, so I’ll say yes, I did. Father never buys food for us, how else can we get it?†he probed.
      His mother nodded slowly, and took a dainty bite of the bread. Her sparkling green eyes opened wider, and she consumed the rest of the piece quickly, licking her fingers of the crumbs. Jack smiled slightly, watching his family eat. His sister and mother looked so much alike, bearing no resemblance to his father. They both had flowing, long orange hair, sparkling green eyes, heart shaped faces, and a slender body. With a wry grin, Jack saw the main difference between them; the one he had thought made them go so well smiling next to each other. Jill’s face always wore a mischievous grin, while his mother had a kind smile.
      A tremendous pounding on the door ruptured his thinking and jack flinched in fear. His mother’s face turned pale, and a tear ran down her cheek Jill bit her lip nervously, trembling as she rose slowly to her barren, uncovered feet, and hesitantly opened the door. Jack winced as he saw her pull open the door, and was instantly greeted by a backhand to her face, sending her to the ground in a sprawled heap.
      Jack clenched his fist as he watched his father enter. A ragged, dirty, unshaven man, looking nothing akin to the fair features of his son and daughter, Jack and Jill. Nevertheless, being tremendously tall and broad shouldered, he made an intimidating presence in the room. In one hand, he clutched a large bottle of alcohol, in the other, an empty bag of coins.
      “What took you so long to open the door, wench?!†he snarled, “Where’s that that whore of a mother you have?â€Â
      Jack edged slightly to the side, attempting to conceal his mother. He hear her shift slightly behind him, no doubt cringing in fear of his father. The burly man turned to Jack, and upon seeing the pair of feet behind him, swung the bottle at Jack’s head, shattering glass everywhere. Jack fell to the ground, clutching at his head in pain.
      “There you are, my little slut,†his father said, licking his lips.
      With a scream, Jack’s mother jumped to her feet, and attempted to run, to no avail.

      A precious gift we don't acknowledge in our daily lives. My grandpa is dying of cancer, so I wrote this poem for him. Here, it's posted to show you to appreciate life.

      My grandpa's dying of cancer, so I wrote this poem for him... I thought I'd share it with all of you to show you what life really means.

      Life

      On wings unseen;
      We carry our gift of Life.
      Given by being supreme?
      Given by coincidence?


      Will we ever find out?


      But these;
      Are questions that hold no meaning.

      Life we have carried in our beating hearts,
      In our touch;
      In our dreams.

      It is a thing we take for granted;
      An item we hold in disregard.


      Until something…

      Threatens to snatch it away.

      We learn to appreciate Life;
      As we go further, further;

      Further, from it.

      But Life is fragile;
      Chance;
      Fate;
      Destiny;
      Can be cruel.

      Oh why;
      Do men of kindness;
      Of goodness;
      Of hope;
      Why does Chance choose them?

      For this;
      For the gift of Life;
      Hold on;
      Hold on;
      Hold on;



      Stay with us.

      Hehe. Sometimes crossing over ideas helps them - my NaNo thing was originally going to be a webcomic, then it became my NaNovel, so at least it got made whatever happened.

      I've never played D&D, but I know the basics of how it works. Really does sound like something that would help work out the character traits at least :D

    • FJewel

      10 years ago

      Nice to hear that NaNo has helped you, even if you're not taking part (for very logical reasons, now I come to think about it)

      Thing is with NaNo that I've found in the past couple of... Gods, it's only been a week. Now it feels long. Sorry, yes, what I found is that because there *is* a deadline, you write with a lot more intent. Instead of just sitting going "Oh I can't be bothered to write today".

      Never know, just setting a bit more reasonable deadlines (get a first draft done by February or likewise) will help without making your writing suffer, as you mentioned. Unless you do that anyway, at which point I will be forced to throw cookies at you :D

    • softballgrl1

      10 years ago

      yes you are right that alot of "false" religions do miss quote the bible but im not.i am all the way christian and really it is the only religion that dates back to the begining of time unlike all these "other" religions who just appeared one day.

      My God is benevolent bc his WONT interfer with our lives but he wishes that we will make a good choice and not do those things and love the same race.

      No...thats true only to an extentl!
      "2 The LORD is a jealous and avenging God;
      the LORD takes vengeance and is filled with wrath.
      The LORD takes vengeance on his foes
      and maintains his wrath against his enemies."

      He is kind. He made us to be with him but we messed it all up.so now we have to live in sin on this earth until we surve our perpose. He wants to keep us from all pain,troubles, and things like that. He wants us all to be happy but we cant do that bc of Eve eating the forbidden fruit. He is good. No way is any of that true. and if you believe thats all he is then you really havnt studied the bible.yes he has to punish us but that to try and teach us a lesson.He puts us through hard times to see if we trust him and will keep our faith.

      but.....

      your right. I think he does want us to be happy and he isnt a jealous God but he wishes we would stick to your same race and different sex. thats all....i mean by this whole thing.

      his parent that is white IS muslim or islamy....i have read about him.thats how i know my facts.


      all i know is what i have read bout him which is that he is going to try and take all simi-automatic guns away{like a 30/30...or 20 gage(guns)} so yeah....how bout you try and read some just like me before you sit and think that you can fuckin call me stupid!

    • softballgrl1

      10 years ago

      your right about the: " God is not what makes America the country of Freedom. It's the people who do, and it's our values which do.."

      but the gay thing hell no thats not right. God made man and women to be together not two men or two women! He made us for him to have company but when the whole fruit thing happened we sinned.He says in the bible that he doesnt agree with that. He thinks all colors and sex should marry there equal kind{white=white and black=black/ girl=guy} and we are not animals, we are humans.so its different.

      He isnt the one making us like this {our country} your right but its not all churches either.

      Have you read the bible?do you know what it says?if you havnt then dont try and say that churches are doing this.it prodics in Reveltions that all this poverty and natural diastors will happen just like it is.

      GOD DOESNT WANT TO DAMN US....WE ARE THE ONES WHO ARE MAKING IT LIKE THIS!
      but he wont force us to love him.thats what free-will is.

      i understand the abortion thing if you have been rapped but alot of people are doin that just bc they happened to sleep with one to many guys.im for it if it comes down to the rape thing but other wise i think its wrong!

      hahahahahahahahaha....alternate energy.....hahahahahahahahaha! nothing will ever replace petroleum. even if we start using nothing but alternate energy cars, petroleum is still used in plastics, airplane fuel, desil trains, boats, freight ships, textiles, medications....ect. besides, it is still going to be burnt in cars until the day I die. it is the most energy dense fuel that we have, at about 45,000 joules per pound of gasoline (ethanol has about 32,000; hydrogen has only 4,000)

      petroleum reservoir engineers are a rare breed. they were the only employees that didn;t get laid off during the oil crisis 30 years ago. I will always have a job.
