It felt as if both Overwing and Underfall had lost someone that day. Though, they had all seen it coming, Princess Saphine had fallen deathly ill during a visit to Overwing with her father and brother. Her mother and older sister were still on Underfall, and they had no idea any of this had even happened. The king of Underfall wasn't outward with his grief, but it was noticeable enough. He had holed himself up in his personal room in Castle Lovre, using the excuse that he was busy with “other things.” The prince of Underfall was an entirely different story. He was more outward with his emotions—especially with prince Andromedus. Of course, his best friend was there to listen to him, and to attempt to comfort him. That's how they had gotten into their current position. Prince Kazan’s head resting on Andromedus’ chest, white the latter was sitting against a tree in the gardens. Kazan's former sobbing died down to hiccuping, the small prince practically in Andromedus’ lap. Andromedus had his arms wrapped around Kazan, almost protectively so. He ever so lightly rubbed Kazan’s back, in an attempt to comfort him.

I know, I know your last tour was difficult. I know you want to go into the studio and get “experimental” now. I know all that. But please hear me out and let me convince you this is a very bad idea.
I suppose I have to admit my first reasons are more selfish. If you stop touring, you will never again come to all the cities where your millions of adoring Fans await. We will never get to experience being in the same room as you. There will be no hope for us to meet you, or at least get close to you and maybe even touch you, someday. If you lived in the 21st century, with live streaming and Internet, it would be different. We could at least see you perform and leave you comments you could answer, and maybe feel closer to you even if we aren’t there with you. But for the 1960s, when you abandon your tours, you abandon us completely.
I also ask you to reconsider what you are planning to do with your time once you stop touring. Getting “experimental” in the studio. First, I want to tell you that, if you heard today’s music, you would never, never, never even consider putting any effects on your precious sound and giving other musicians ideas. Second,...

Andromedus had arrived at Overwing before the week ended; it had taken him three days and three quarters of a day to get there. It would probably take him a bit longer to get to Castle Lovre, no less than two days, no more than three, depending on many factors that could affect travel. If Andromedus had to guess, he’d say it’d take only two days if he travelled nonstop. By then, most people would most likely know he’s back, the news would spread as fast as it can. At this time, most people around Overwing were getting ready for afternoon or late afternoon activities; time zones being the deciding factor. Most families would be outside having fun, most of them probably playing with their pets. Andromedus didn’t exactly anticipate this fact, both because of his missing foot and because he didn’t really like talking all that much. Of course, he’d talk if someone had asked him about the ocean, but most people didn’t exactly care for the ocean. The elemental factor came into play here, most of the people living on Overwing had the air element. Andromedus had the air element as well, hence his wings, but he also had water as an element. Something pretty common is having a...

Throughout the small town of Outland, playing children could be heard laughing, adults were chattering, and teens were doing chores. The teenage helliunds always hung around their parents or the elders; always trying to help. Daily life in Outland was always like this, with adults and teens working hard to make the most out of their desert-like area. The townspeople ate mostly locally grown cacti and cacti fruits, though they would also trade with neighboring towns. It was a system that had worked for hundreds of years, and kept working even after Andromedus had introduced the western dragons to Ireai. The dragons helped with the daily work, and also made travel faster and nearly effortless. They were good with children and quite benevolent, rarely ever growing angry unless they had a nest to protect. They could carry things with their second pair of arms, meaning they could help with moving quite large loads of resources. There was only one dragon that refused to be tamed, the townspeople called her Rosabelle. She was an older dragon with a bad temper, growling and snapping at anybody and everybody who got too close.

Kathmandu by Dusk.
So, Nepal is my other dream destination that I would love to go after one of my classmates went there a few months ago.

Religious Purposes

This is the main reason why I would love to go to Nepal, I come from a Buddhist family and I feel blessed every-time I hear the mantra.

Beautiful Kathmandu

Unlike many Capital Cities that I had been, Kathmandu is the size of Ipoh from where I am from. But, it is still very busy from the looks of the photos on Google!

The Himalayas

Another reason why I would love to go to Nepal! The country is very picturesque and it will take my breath away, but please don't ask me to climb up there!


A Nepalese Dream

So, here are my 3 reasons on why I would love to go to Nepal. Do you agree?

Now listen, there's some stuff i like in the APH fandom (Like Au's, reader inserts, ect) but I hate in the "Yaoiness" of the fandom. don't get me wrong, I respect peoples opinions on pairings or ship the characters together. if you like yaoi, that's cool, we both like different things. in anime, movies, games, ect. but not all of us like yaoi in things. but PLEASE! don't try to shove your ships down peoples throats your try force to make people to ship the characters together. like what i said we both have different likings to some things we both like/not like.

1. Please to bashing on the female nations in Hetalia they did nothing wrong. and also, they are NOT in the way of your "precious Yaoi". Seychelles probably gets a a lot of hate probably because of the Hetalia Gueken Dating Game because in the game shes the character you play as and shipped with everyone. as me myself, I love Seychelles shes adorable and such a cinnamon roll. and also, please stop...

Octavia
“Ana, are you ready?”
The teenager was deaf to her name. Octavia sighed and went to the bedroom where the younger had gone to get dressed. “If you’re getting cold feet, it’s a little late for that—”
She paused in the doorway. Ana stood in front of the full-length mirror, staring at her reflection. Her curls bleached coppery blonde from years in the dessert sun, Octavia had referred to Ana’s dark roots to dye her hair its natural dark auburn. The soft waives were tamed into a bun, circled by an elegant braid like a mock crown. A few ringlets escaped to frame Ana’s face, where her freckles were made invisible by light foundation, and the Eastern-European almond shape of her eyes were accented by dark mascara and eyeliner. Even the dress, a light cream color, made the young woman look more like her queen grandmother. It modestly covered all of her skin, with a loose bodice, billowing sleeves, and long skirt. A diamond and obsidian choker twinkled around her neck with matching studs sparkling in her newly pierced ears. The gown shaped her body into something mature, but the golden bow around her waist and crown braided into her hair made her...

... Imagine a lone, little raindrop trickling down your misted window glass.

Catching the light, glinting softly, before plopping down onto your garden's dewy grass.

Left behind in this droplet's trail is a long, thin, glossy, watery stain.

Beckoning you, enticing you, by whispering: " Come outside and enjoy the rain! "

----------------------

Like all other souls out there, you aren't safe from the feelings of sadness and depression. At times, all you'll want to do is to stay at home... to ponder about the deeper meaning of life... to mull over everything negative.

While I, myself, am in no position to tell you that such an act is wrong - it's not completely justified either. There are people out there who love you for your true colours and who care for your health, joy, sanity.

At times when you feel low, try to find some light from the poetry above. Like plants, who grow greener and healthier with water, expose yourself to the tear-symbolizing rain and wash off your worries.

Below is an article on the 19th century California dish called "Hangtown Fry":


HANGTOWN FRY

The state of California is not known for its cuisine. In fact, it has developed a reputation for bland and uninspiring dishes. It is a pity since the state has created some memorable recipes over the decades. One of them is the 19th century dish called Hangtown Fry. The latter is an omlette dish that originated sometime between 1849 and 1853 during the California Gold Rush. Although the dish has three origin tales, everyone does agree that the it was created in mid-19th century California. Many also agree that the original dish was an omlette made from eggs, bacon and oysters.

According to the first origin tale, the Hangtown Fry was invented in Placerville, California - then known as Hangtown - in the saloon of the El Dorado Hotel, now known as the Cary House Hotel. When a prospector rushed into the hotel's saloon, announcing he had struck gold along the banks of Hangtown Creek; he ordered the most expensive dish that the hotel could provide. Since the most expensive food in Gold Rush California were eggs - a delicacy...

On the final night of the tour, the two bands decided to give a concert performance based on what the audience wanted to hear. They mainly suggested some classics from both bands. They also suggested a few cover songs. Among them was the Oak Ridge Boys hit, "Elvira". Paul knew the song by heart, so he sang the lead. John chose to sing bass. After the concert, Erin said, "I didn't realize you had such a big range, John." He said, "Most of the fans don't realize it either. When they talk about me and my band mates, they always describe me as 'the one with the long, dirty blonde hair and the raspy voice.' That's just what they're used to." Carl said, "That's interesting. You have a big singing range, but your speaking voice is relatively deep." Lola said, "It's not as deep as Allen's, though." Allen said, "That's true. I think I have the deepest voice." Once the tour was over, and the two bands parted ways, Erin said, "I enjoyed this. We'll have to do this again sometime." John said, "I'd like that." Later, the two bands agree to meet again someday and maybe record an album and tour again.

One day, my sister went out for a drive. She was always so careful and cautious. I never thought that she would ever be in a car crash, but that night, she was. It wasn't her fault at all. A drunk driver hit her. My parents said to me, "We have to go. Your sister is in the hospital. She was in a car crash." I asked, "Is she going to be okay?" My mother said, "I don't know. They say she's hurt bad." When we arrived, the doctor said that my sister was too badly hurt for him to be able to do anything. He told us to say our goodbyes. I wasn't ready to say goodbye. I said to her, "Please don't go!" She said to me, "Listen to me. Not only are you my brother, you're my best friend." Those were her last words. It was one of the few times I had ever seen my parents cry. I cried, too. For me, it meant that I was going on with life without my best friend. I was thirteen years old. She was sixteen. I didn't think about someone so young and full of life being gone so soon. It was hard for me, but I had my beloved Labrador, Lucky, to help me cope. Sadly, I ended up losing him one year later. He had a bad habit of chasing cars. For the longest time, I tried to break him of that habit, but...

Spoiler review..

So this has to be one of the most famish ghost movies I could think of..

I wish I could go into this not knowing the twist.. But I been "Bruce Willis was dead all along" for my entire life.. As well as "I see dead people" memes..

But fact is. This movie really is "that good".

Bruce Willis has been known for the action films lke DIE HARD, at the time. He never did such a quite role.. But it really was some of the best acting I seen from Willis.. Just like Mel Gibson in Signs.. Which I still don't get why everyone hates that movie.. Espically after Chris Stuckmann's review..

Anyway.. Knowin the twist. This movie was maybe even that much better.. Cause you understand why nobody but the kid is reacting to him.. He's a
ghost..

Though it does strike me as odd that Willis never figured it out, from nobody really reacting to his presence. Except the kid claiming to see ghosts.

Anyway.. This movie is totally worth checking out..

I've been collecting (kay at this point its more like hoarding) CD's for a long time now and so I wanted to try my hand at doing some album reviews. Basically I'll be rating the cover art and each song on the album. Naturally I'm going to start with my all time favorite album. So without further delay, here's a review of the Mother Earth album.

The artwork for this album is what drew me in. At the time I had purchased this album, I was having trouble deciding which Within Temptation album I wanted more; Mother Earth or Heart Of Everything. In the end I went with this one Mother Earth because I was very much intrigued by the album cover. The black, green, and cream color scheme is beautiful. And Sharon's ensemble is beautiful; her dress and her crown. Even the way her hair is done up on the album is beautiful. And in the background there is this zodiac sort of circle that I wad intrigued by.

So obviously my expectations were high and I was not disappointed. Mother Earth, the song the album was named for, is the first track on the album. And boy was it a grand intro. The orchestral suite in the beginning was enchanting and the whole vibe was...

The booming sounds of rhythmic beats pound in Westlake Studio A as Holly sits at the mixing board. Her long hair pulled back in a ponytail as the fans are on full blast to beat out the hot Californian summer heat wave of 1979. Even in her daisy duke shorts and tank top, she can still feel her skin sticking to the vinyl chair. As the beats go she sits with paper in front of her and writes corresponding lyrics that come to her, sometimes humming, others singing out loud. The time in her studio was her saving grace lately; especially her and Michael haven’t been as close lately, not by Michael’s doing. After the premiere Holly watched how Michael looked at Diana that told one simple fact – he loved her, plain and simple. He could never love her like that even if he did. That whole night had put a sour taste in her mouth and made her recoil from him even when he would call her every night to talk to her or invite her over to watch a movie. Michael was right; nothing would ever be the same between them ever again.

"PERSUASION" (1995) Review

Twenty-four years after the BBC aired its 1971 version of Jane Austen’s 1818 novel, ”Persuasion”; and twelve years before ITV aired its adaptation; Columbia Pictures released its own version on British television and in movie theaters across the U.S. The movie went on to become highly acclaimed, the winner of a BAFTA TV award for Best Single Drama, and regarded as the definitive version of Austen’s novel.

Directed by Roger Michell, ”PERSUASION” told the story of Anne Elliot, the middle daughter of an impoverished baronet in Regency England. Seven or eight years before the story began, she had been persuaded to reject the marriage proposal of a young and ambitious Royal Navy officer named Frederick Wentworth by her godmother and late mother’s friend, Lady Russell. After spending so many years in deep regret over her action, Anne found herself facing Wentworth again during a visit to her younger sister’s home. Now a captain and wealthy from the spoils of the recent Napoleonic Wars, Wentworth continued to harbor a good deal of residual anger and resentment toward Anne. And the latter continued...

Health Care
In any sporting event, prevention of injuries is the most essential best way to go. However, we can't eliminate the occurrence of these injuries.

Because they are bound to happen anyway, we must know the injuries we are to face for us to understand the safest and effective way to handle them. They are;

traumatic injuries Acute

They include cuts, fractures, strains, concussions and sprains and they are a result of blows or muscular forces acting on the affected regions.

Overuse injuries

Popularly known as chronic injuries, they include things ling tendonitis and fractures resulting from stress spreading over a relatively extended period. Sporting activities associated with such injuries are serving a tennis ball, overhand throwing and running.

These injuries can be as severe as the acute ones although they are never severe in their early stages.

*The hatred that Hannah had for Franklin was building up inside. He was right. He was right about her. But she had a feeling, a feeling that, if she didn’t do something, he would get away with these murders. There would be no evidence, nothing to prove that he was the one responsible for the murders. She didn’t show any signs of hesitation for someone like him. She aimed the gun at Franklin and fired the gun at his head. He fell back, his body limp before it even hit the ground. As soon as he was dead, the world around Hannah started to fall into black as she slowly awakened.*

*William rested against the wall as he kept his eyes on Hannah. He waited patiently for her to get up, before his eyes turned to Franklin, his eyes widening in terror. He wasn’t breathing, he was lying on the floor, dead, with blood seeping from the top of his head, but with a sort of grin on his face, almost as if he had achieved something he wanted to achieve. As William’s eyes were on the now dead body of Andrew Franklin, Hannah shot up, taking a deep breath as she looked around. William turned to her, filled with many questions.*

When I was eight years old, I had a near-death experience. I was playing in a river with my cousin. We were jumping from rock to rock. All of the sudden, I slipped and fell into the river. In a panicked state, I tried to fight the current, and I cried for help. Pretty soon, I was pulled under, and everything went dark. After that, things got really bad. I had to be resuscitated. Thankfully, my uncle's neighbor happened to be a paramedic. After five minutes, I had a heartbeat and was breathing again. I could hear the paramedic say "He's okay, but I'm going to take him to the hospital just to be sure." Pretty soon, I woke up in the hospital. My family kept a vigil on me. My sister said, "I'm glad you're okay. That was the longest five minutes of my life." I said, "But I'm alive." My mother said, "And we're glad for that." I never went near the water again after that. I am so terrified of water that I only take showers rather than baths. There was one day when I was eleven or maybe twelve, and I slipped and fell into a pool while on vacation. My sister pulled me out. She said, "It's okay. I got you." She always had my back, no matter what. We had always wanted a dog, and Mother...

From the very first episode to the very last, Once Upon A Time delivered on each theme and then some. To create such an alluring show you need brilliant writers and an enchanting cast to go with it. Once Upon a Time, is one such show.

Over the course of Once Upon A Time's seven seasons,we watched the characters from Storybrooke come and go.We laughed and cried with them as they fell in love,or lost a loved one.We watched them turn from villain to hero,or hero to villain.

A key theme of Once Upon A Time is family,and not just the ones related by blood.Family is about those that love you unconditionally.Who would go to the ends of the earth for those they love,or those who would die for you or sacrifice their...

But then someone caught Luigi on a rope, it was Mario! He had green hair like Iggy's and the M on his hat was now a large I! "You didn't think I would have let you go without a fight would you?" The evil Mario said. "Ma Ma Ma Mario! what a happened to you?!" No answer, Kamek snuck up on luigi and started to shoot fiery blasts out of his wand! "Not so fast you Magikoopa!" Luigi stomped the wand out of his hand. Luigi then started firing at every toad, the fire knocked the glasses off of their heads, "aha! so this the a cure!" Luigi said happily. A pipe then appeared spitting out hundreds of grrolls at Luigi! "Ahhhh! Mama mia!" a pipe made of... cheese then appeared infront of Luigi. "Mmm... well, I guess stopping that guy can wait." Luigi was distracted by the cheese and started to eat the whole pipe! "Ah ha ha! Foolish Luigi!" Iggy stood back and enjoyed the show. They all then heard a mysterious noise,...

Previously on Super Mario Stories: While chasing Iggy, the Mario Bros. found themselves stranded in the middle of a giant cloud of Bowser's minions. They fought their way out, but Iggy is still on the run.

"Mario, he's a getting away!" Luigi said as they ran faster than a Lakitu can fly. Then, another pipe popped up and a Hammer Bro. hopped out with a lasso. "Mama mia!" Mario shouted as it lassoed him. The Hammer Bro. walked Mario the whole way to Bowser's Castle! "Finish Peach's cake without me bro!" Mario shouted, "Not without you Mario, not without you..." Later at Bowser's castle, Mario has been tied up by the Koopas. Iggy entered the room with Lemmy, Kamek, Morton, and, Larry by his side. "Ooh hoo ho! what do we have here?" Iggy said tapping his foot."Throw him in the cell!" When Mario was in the cell, tied up, Iggy came forth with glasses in his hand. "Bahaha haaaaa haaa baha haa!" Iggy was lowering the glasses to Mario's face... "I am a at your service master Iggy!" Mario said.

Nudge paused as she entered the room, her chattering with the brunette beside her slowing. She rose an eyebrow in confusion at the three siblings laughing and hugging. "There's more of you?" Jaime looked up at the sound and let go, running over and hugging onto her tightly. She blinked before slowly hugging him. 'I'm so confused." Nudge grabbed his shoulder, pushing him back to stare at him, lowering a few inches to get eye level with the boy. "You look just like him, wow." She leaned back up, patting her head as Jack held up the polaroid, snapping a picture of him. "What's your name, kiddo?" He asked, waving around the developing photo. Jaime looked at him in confusion before giving him a quite "Jaime" as a reply. He took a long look at the male. "You don't look like Ca-" Mel drove a hard fist into his back, earning a cough from Jaime. He turned to look at Mel and she stared at him. His eyes widened in realization before he turned back to the two, who didn't seem to notice the slip-up he nearly had. "Jack.." His voice was quiet and the brunette hardly heard his name. Jack smiled and wrote the name on the back of the polaroid before dropping it into his bag. Jaime was about...

Vol 36 - Case Closed
Detective Conan is known as "Case Closed" in North America. The name "Case Closed" results from concerns of copyright conflict of the name Detective Conan.

Viz Media licensed the manga series under the name for English-language publication in North America, which is up to Volume 66 as of April 10, 2018.

Because Victor Gollancz Ltd canceled publication of Detective Conan after 15 volumes in UK,Viz Media continues to handle UK's distribution with the American edition. Funimation Entertainment licensed the anime series for North American broadcast under the name Case Closed. The character names were also adapted into English ones with some names different between the two. Fifty episodes of the English dubbed series aired on Cartoon Network as part of their Adult Swim programming block on May 24th, 2004 until January 2005 and were discontinued due to low ratings.In Canada, Case Closed premiered on channel YTV, 22 episodes were broadcasted between April 7th, 2006 and September 2nd, 2006.

Hi, everyone! Kelly here. Today, I will be discussing everything that I love about my all time favorite band, the Beatles. Before I start, I would like to thank my dear friend, Peaceandlove67 (Antonia) for inspiring me to write this article. So, without further ado, let's begin.

1. Their friendship and child-like innocence - Friendship is one of the things that I value the most, and the Beatles showcased its power beautifully. Especially during the early years. No other band seems to have such a close bond between the members. The Beatles also have a child-like innocence and charm, which is very rare nowadays. It just becomes even more adorable when they play and interact with children.

2. Their music - The Beatles are the only band to make me smile and cry at the same time. Not to mention that they have helped me to become a better person ever since I became a fan. The world needs their songs and message about peace, love, and understanding now more than ever.

"WONDER WOMAN" (2017) Review

Since the release of "MAN OF STEEL" back in 2013, the D.C. Comics Extended Universe (DCEU) franchise has been in a conundrum. Although the 2013 film and with the two movies that followed - "BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE" and "SUICIDE SQUAD" - were all box office hits, they had been heavily condemned by many film critics. Then along came "WONDER WOMAN", the first superhero movie that featured a woman in the lead since 2005.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, "WONDER WOMAN" is basically a flashback on the origins of Princess Diana of Thymerica aka Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman. Some time after the events of "BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE", Diana received a package at her Antiquities Curator office at the Louvre Museum. It came from Bruce Wayne aka Batman and it contained the original photographic plate of her, Steve Trevor and their comrades during World War I. The photographic plate led Diana to recall her past, starting with her childhood on Thymerica Island. While being raised by her mother, the Amazonian Queen Hippolyta, Diana learns about Zeus' creation of mankind and his son Ares'...

"MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL" (2011) Review

Looking back on the "MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE" franchise, I noticed that a movie seemed to appear every four to six years. There are a few things unique about the franchise's 2011 movie, "MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL". One, Paula Wagner did not co-produce the movie with star Tom Cruise. J.J. Abrams, who directed the third film, did. And two, for once the villain's goal turned out to be a lot different from those in the past three movies.

Directed by Brad Bird (who was responsible for Disney animation classics, "THE INCREDIBLES" and "RATATOUILLE", along with the live action movie "TOMORROWLAND"), "MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL" focused on the efforts of an IMF team led by Ethan Hunt to prevent a nuclear disaster. During a mission to procure the files of a terrorist named "Cobalt", Ethan and his fellow agents are implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin. The IMF is shut down, causing Ethan's team and an intelligence analyst named William Brandt to go rogue and clear the organization's name. In order to do this, they have to find "Cobalt", a Swedish-born nuclear strategist...

The sun was finally starting to reach its zenith as the crowd waited in quiet anticipation of the bout that was soon to begin. This event was so widely known and so hyped up that the entire Terrador stadium was packed full and then some. Viewers from Qeacaba, Handan, and even Meritan were going so far as to stand in any empty space they could find simply because there was not enough seats to house them all. This battle had been being hyped up for months and it was finally about to begin. The Battle Royale matchup of the three most powerful Intermediate Ranked fighters in all of Terrador. The charming and nimble Luzon, known for his indestructible armor-like skin and whip style weaponry, The White Knight, a silent combatant and master swordsman with the adorable female manager that was a complete mystery to everyone, and finally, the current fan favorite. Amdusias, the Demon of Thunder, whose thunderclap attacks can shake even the most hardened of warriors.

All of this was also being stated by the announcer who was wonderfully performing his duty of hyping the crowd into a mindless frenzy and above it all, watching with the only look of mild curiosity in the entire...

Wow....isn't Nishka beautiful?
Kristina's Perspective

I don't know how to break Nishka and Vincent up. They really love each other. I heard tonight they're going on a pre-date. I can't believe this! Nishka stole Vincent from me! I know it's not Nishka's fault she's pretty, but still! That doesn't mean she can steal a boy I love from me! Ugh! I'm going to write an article about Nishka Reddy and how weird she is and Vincent will love me! Or maybe I should spread some rumors about Nishka and Vincent....

Vincent's Perspective

Okay, my evil plan is to do some bad things to Kristina and she'll think it's bad luck so she'll commit suicide (hopefully). Then I'll never have to worry about Kristina again! Hahahaha!!!! Then I'll ask beautiful Nishka to marry me!!!! I cannot wait!

Nishka's Perspective

I met a nice girl named Landra today. She said she thought me and Vincent would make a cute couple. She also said she wished someone would love her like Vincent loved me. I think she's my new best friend!

Mario was standing right beside Iggy, Iggy had an idea, he whispered it to the toad. "You got it Iggy!" said the toad. The toad started running, it built up speed and then ran into Mario! "Ow how hoo how!" Mario ran in circles in pain. "What was that Luigi? "I a don't know Ma... ahhh! over there!" Luigi spotted Iggy creeping into Donut Plains toward Bowser's Castle. "Uh oh time to run!" Iggy started to run, placing glasses on every living thing that he passed. "C'mon Luigi! we a have to put a stop to this!" Mario yelled, when they were chasing him Luigi stopped to the sound of a pipe sprouting out of the ground. "Wah?" Then everything from Chain Chomps to Ninjiis came out of the pipe, Koopas! "I've got your back Lui… oof!" Mario said as he tripped over an orange knee-high pipe. Mario then plucked the pipe out of the ground, Luigi booted a chain chomp over to Mario, Mario whacked the chain chomp, it knocked a paratroopa right out of the sky! "Home run bro!" Luigi said as he high-fived Mario. "Mama Mia! That terrible...

Previously On Super Mario Stories: Mario & Luigi went off to the Toad Bazaar to buy more sugar for Peach's cake. Iggy and Kamek heard someone coming through the hallway door...

"What did you do this time you dumb Goomba of a Koopa?" Kamek asked Iggy. "Well... I sort'a used King Dad's coins to buy all of these glasses." Iggy explained further, but the door burst open and Lemmy came out on his wonder ball hopping and spinning gleefully. Iggy placed his hand on his heart and sighed in relief. "Heeeeeyyyyyy… Iggster! I heard about your plan with the glasses!" Lemmy said balancing on his wonder ball. "uhh… okay then, so I will go to the Toad Bazaar and test them on a green toad! Bahaha!" Iggy yelled. Iggy was hiding in a container with live cheep cheep at the Toad Bazaar waiting for a target. Suddenly, a green toad walked right past him. "He he he". Iggy placed the glasses on the toad's head. But then... "We a got the sugar!" Mario yelled as Luigi carried it. "What the Mario Bros.!? Hide me!" Iggy hid behind a desk selling Tanooki Leaves, the Toad followed him. Mario was standing right beside them!

Mario and Luigi were preparing Peach's birthday cake in a bowl that could fit five Banzai Bills! "Weege, bro! pass me the sugar please!" "You got it Mario, bro!"

Iggy said followed by a chuckle. Kamek later enchanted all three hundred of the koopa's glasses. When Kamek was almost done enchanting them, Iggy pushed him out of the way of his cauldron, then KABOOM! the cauldron exploded....

The 1966 Batman live action is known for how goofy it is. Despite how campy the show was it had lots of genuine heart and great lessons.

1. Women can be crime fighters.

During the 1960s women were still not treated with proper respect. Thankfully the show's wonderful creator, William Dozier, helped things out by adding a female crime fighter to the show's third season: Batgirl. A lot of the show's female characters were easily tricked sidekicks to the male bad guys. The female sidekicks were a parody of what unfair men thought of women back in the past. Batgirl came along in the show's third season. She wasn't a parody or a goofball. She was a hard working, cool, and inspiring woman. She was a far bigger help to Batman than the Boy Wonder and the silly Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara. Although Batman underestimated Batgirl's importance because of her gender he learned to realize that women are just as cool as men.

2. Being safe while surfing is important even if you're in a surfing contest.

10. Alice
Why should she be in the lineup?
Although her movie was a flop, it's still popular to this day; it's shown on tv every now and then, the movie has a lot of merchandise, had gotten a live action remake, and it has a few rides in the Disney parks. And though she's not a princess or in the lineup she's featured in Disney Princess related stuff like DP magazines and DP sing-along movies and she's called the Princess of Heart in the Kingdom Hearts games

Why shouldn't she be in the lineup?
She's too young to be in the lineup. That's really it. I would add because she's not royalty as well but Mulan and Pocahontas are in the lineup




9. Eilonwy
Why should she be in the lineup?
She's a princess and fans will say she's bland compared to how she was in the book but I honestly like that she spoke her mind (even if she said something rude unintentionally) and when Taran got mad at her at one point and said "What would a girl know about swords anyway?" she stood up for herself, reminding him if it weren't for her he'd still be in a...

Mystery is something that drives us all to curiosity. Whenever there is something that we cannot truly grasp the truth of, we wish to find that truth out, we wish for it to be clear to us, rather than just remaining a mystery. It is only human for us to want the truth in a mystery, rather than try to ignore it, the thoughts of it eating away at us, only increasing our curiosity.... I mean, how else did stuff like shock videos get so popular? But disgusting and horrifying fetish videos aside, we're here to talk about video games as usual. Specifically, characters from video games that are just so mysterious. Be it their motivations, their background, or even their entire identity, these are the top ten most mysterious video game characters. And what I consider to be a mysterious character may differ from what you consider to be one. If we have full information on who the person is, than that just ruins the mystery, doesn't it? That said, on with the list.

So mrcodegeass impressed me and inspired me to share some love in articles as well, so I decided I would say some of the things I love about other users right here. I was thinking of doing a separate article for everyone, but I don’t think I could write that much for some people I still wanted to call out for being awesome so I decided I would do a massive ramble of an article right here.

If I didn’t mention you, sorry XD Its not a personal thing or anything. I am doing this off the top of my head so either I don’t know too much about you or just didn’t think of you at the time or I got tired at the end since these got tiring ((Also I seem to have started a trend of having at least one hashtag so Imma make that a thing))

So without further ado!

Starting off with Wanta, I would like to say he is a great friend I’ve had for a while. While he isn’t the most active on Random, he still always carries around a great humor and comfort with him.

Kristina's Perspective

I think I just lost the love of my life. I think he's in love with my classmate, Nishka Reddy. That's because I just caught Vincent kissing her. I ran away crying. Words can't tell how jealous I am of Nishka right now! My greatest fear is losing the title of prettiest girl in the world to a different girl. And I'm afraid of losing it to Nishka. I know she's prettier than me, but I'll never admit it. Never!!!!!!

I'm also really afraid if Vincent proposes to Nishka. Then they'll get married and my heart would break. But what if Nishka says no to Vincent? I don't have much hope in that idea. I think Nishka likes Vincent. I have got to break them up soon!

Vincent's Perspective

I feel so good right now. So....good. That's 'cause I think Nishka likes me...a lot! Also I plotted the perfect plan to show Kristina how much I hate her! Ooohhhh, I can't wait for tomorrow, I'm gonna ask Nishka to marry me, and I'm gonna activate my plan to show Kristina just how much I hate her, and....yeah, I know. It's too early to do all that stuff, I...
