Life After the Great War~ Chapter 30Chapter 30~
Arizona eventually anchored somewhere else, and I was content to get some rest when no one other than Queen Elizabeth decided to pay a call. She batted her eyes at me, and purred "Hello, handsome boy."
I groaned and asked "What is it, what do you want?"
She made a circle, came up alongside me till our hulls hit one another, and replied "You told me you could explain how you got so handsome 'later', so now I want to hear."
"I'm tired, Elizabeth." I answered.
She nuzzled me and replied "I am sure a big fellow like you does get worn out easy, but all you have to do is talk. Would you be so ungentlemanly you would rob me of the pleasure of hearing your voice?"
"I don't know." I stated.
She rested her bow against mine, and said "The brave HMS Tempestuous I fell in love with would do all he could to make a lady happy. Are you his
09-11....I Can Still Remember If one closes their eyes and thinks long and hard, they can still remember.
They can still remember the glory that graced the New York skyline before the dreaded 11th day of September in the year of 2001 when hell burst through the skies, and rent the world into ruin and sorrow. Families were broken, hearts were shattered, and nothing would ever be the same again. The security of our nation was never again taken for granted. We thought we were safe forever....then, we realized we weren't. Because we are the most powerful nation in the world, we thought no one would ever do us any harm. We though we were invincible. We thought were like the Titanic...unsinkable.
The towers fell, they crashed to the ground, and the rubble filled the streets. People were trapped beneath it, and many cried out for help, but sometimes, no help would come to them. The steel was wrenched in all sorts of ways...it was the skeleton of the towers, an

"WHO ARE YOU?!"
"You're....you are fixed up!" Wilhelm exclaimed.
I moved a small ways from her so she could see better, and replied "I am practically brand-new."
She asked with interest "Did you persuade the people to do that after Olympic had her fight with you?"
So, she had told everything.
"Yes and no. I didn't really persuade them at all. Obviously, I needed to be fixed up where I had been broken, but the rest of me has been in poor shape for a long time. I will never know what made the decision come for me to be restored to my former glory, but I am eternally grateful."
She reviewed me for a long time, then said "For a ship of your era, you have to be exceedingly attractive in your length and layout. Hence why it is you I desire for my children's father."
I came up alongside her again and said "Well, at least some traits make it to the new generation

THE TRIPLE MARKER
With the promise that Thomas Bell would still be nearby when I would return, I sailed out into the open sea, many, many miles from the land to find the best catch. Searching made me think of how I would bring Wilhelm and Hood something every evening, which also made me consider the fact I would have to return to Scapa Flow soon. I would not tolerate having Wilhelm spend time fishing herself in her current state. I was a far better mate than that!
Almost 2 and a half hours later, with the sun tilting more towards the horizon, I finally found what I was looking for. A fat, triple-marker swordfish swam lazily below the waves, seemingly totally oblivious to my presence only a few yards away. As it came nearer, I locked my eyes on it, tensed, and at the right moment, lunged. Water flew everywhere at the sudden movement of my prow slamming into the ocean. I had succeeded though, and sank my teeth fully in
Life After the Great War~ Chapter 27Chapter 27~
Later on, at the docks, Thomas Bell and his nephew James came to pay us a call. As soon as I saw the man, I exclaimed "Oh, you fixed up my mate, thank you!!!"
He smiled and said "You're welcome, Olympic. He deserves it, and looks as handsome as a young ship."
Tempestuous offered his winning smile, and said "I am indebted to you. I wish I knew how to thank you."
Thomas began stroking his side, and answered "No need to thank me. I've grown to love an old warship like you, and I wanted you to someday look your best. Now, only one thing to keep in mind is this. Even though your hull was outfitted with new plates, and your bow is fixed up to almost new, the frame of your hull is still 26 years old and deserves to be treated well. You may look as prime as a new shilling, but don't go gallivanting about too much. You are still an old boy."
My mate leaned into Bel
Love Lasts a Lifetime Morning, Radiator Springs.
The first thing he heard was the bickering of Sarge and Fillmore over the choice of music, and it made him shake his head, but laugh. How they could do this every single morning of their life was just amazing. Despite their complaining, there was a peace held, though. They still wouldn't be living next door if that wasn't the case. Life could be so funny.
He was among the first to rise that morning, and after shaking away the effects of sleep, drove over the V8 Cafe'. Sheriff was already there, and greeted him with a smile.
"Morning, Doc." he said with a grin.
He parked a little farther over from him, and replied the same.
Flo came out and asked "Well, what would you boys like this morning?"
Sheriff rolled his eyes and said "Flo, I'm not a boy."
"The usual." Sheriff answered af
Discovery of Titanic On this day in Nineteen-Hundred and Eighty-Five, the great black seas of the North Atlantic were parted by crafts never before seen in this realm. They plunged beneath the surface of the waves, beneath the rolling tide, and as they descended, the sea became dimmer, and dimmer....and dimmer still until all grew black and infinite. The lights from the craft shone upon the strangest of fishes, and many waves of small plankton-creatures glazed past the windows, and on to their way in this strange and ethereal world.
Down, down, down....farther still. Then, with a soft 'plunk', the craft lands upon the sea floor. The white Atlantic sand drifts up in waves, floating in the water like smoke. Drifting around and away. The lights shine on this world, but they do not show much. The ocean is too vast, to immense for them to illumine much. The fishes dart back and forth, curious as to who this intruder really is. They have never seen anything like it in all th
Life Well Lived
Yes, that is my name. I am a namesake for a nation, one of the most powerful nations in the world, if not THE most powerful. The grand United States of America. I wear my name with pride. I serve the people with even more pride. I loved the people, they often treat me so well, and they are just so kind. Ugh, I suppose there will always be ones who make us mad, but there are the good ones, and my William Francis Gibbs is one of them. He is like my father, I love him so much, and he keeps an eye out for me. If only every ship had a friend like him, none would ever lack.
It is February the 8th of 1967. I have been serving the people well, and today, I get treated well. Recognize that day? Today is my birthday. 17 years before, construction began on me, and then, in 1951, I was launched and christened. I have done much, and earned the best award of all, the coveted Blue Riband. No one has taken it from me, as I stil
Life After the Great War~ Chapter 26Chapter 26~
As much as I didn't want to be, I was dumbstruck. For a ship of Tempestuous' rank to go so against what the military dictated during the Great War was stunning. Him and I were a pair then, when had he done this to save Wilhelm? Probably on one of those long forays that kept him away for days at a time. He never told me.
Wilhelm looked out to sea and said "He didn't have to do what he did. It could of gotten him into fierce trouble with the humans, as they like giving him a hard time as it is. I never felt like I thanked him enough for saving me, so, I guess you could say that is one reason why I broke free from Germany after the war, and came all the way to Scotland. Firstly, I wanted to make sure he was still alive, and alright, secondly, I was going to be a willing subject for him to court and eventually take as mate. I was hoping more offspring would result, which they did. He is such a goo
Top 5 Mlp episodes I love but everyone else Hates
5. Putting you Hoof down
It may seem a little mean spirited but that what makes it work
Fluttershy did went too far with her assertive behaviour but that’s the moral of the episode and Fluttershy did feel regret from her treatment to her friends and learnt from it and even gained development
Iron Will is a great character
Pinkie also plays a great supportive role in this episode and that Looney Tunes reference WAS AWESOME!
But I think this guy does a better job at defending this episode: http://mlp-vs-capcom.deviantart.com/journal/Why-I-like-Putting-your-Hoof-Down-454807150
4. Somepony to watch over me
I really like this episode
A lot people rant on AJ’s portrayal but I believe Aj’s behaviour represents the deeper message of the episode
Also this episode was a real laugh fest
At I was like NO don’t be overprotective Aj! But at the point where we see the pillow on the rake my sides were silting throughout the 2nd act
Also the ‘No time for a Song
I have diagnosed the Vocaloid fandom...?...as well as pretty much every other fandom ever.
Before I get to my point, I want to say a few other things.
As you may or may not know, no Vocaloid pairing is canon unless there is a song written about them.
So if you want your ship to be canon, go write a song about them. Or at least make another Magnet cover.
I've spent three years in the Vocaloid fandom, and this is the advice I can give from my observations.
I'm only 14. I'm not a genius, I'll admit that. But in this journal entry here, I'm probably going to sound like I think I'm such a genius in more than one instance.
And I have a tendency to contradict myself, too. But in the end, it's just an opinion. No advice is not an opinion.
If you're new to the fandom and you're reading this, you've made a good move. By all means, DON'T start browsing Google QUITE yet. Go talk to someone on a forum who knows the drill, who's been around the Vocaloid fandom block a few times and knows w
Commentary Quickie: ThatCube1991Surprise surprise, another commentary. Now for someone completely different, none other than ThatCube1991. He's a huge request whore. For more info on why he's hated in a certain community he's a part of on DA, link here.
Those two journals just about summed him up perfectly.
Does everybody hate me?
Click on these answers.
( yes )
( no )
Because of that attitude of yours as of late, I'm sure you're really garnering (and justifying) that hatred towards you.
If you are reading this, then you must've posted the newest lineart I've seen. I was just going to apologize for what I have done,
And yet, you continue your ways like nothing ever happened, time and time again.
I'm very sorry for breaking the rules, it's just, I'm just really excited about something that you will do
Metrical and rhythmic structures in poetryMetrical and rhythmic structures, really anything but free verse, they simply take away from the initial message of your poems. Making these structures require you to morph and warp your words into something they weren't meant to be. If you're able to put this message into just the right words without taking away the message, or perhaps if your poem never really had a specific message. I guess that works for you, but it never works for me. With short stories you aren't taking away, simply adding, which is why I generally only do short stories and free verse. Perhaps later on I will think differently on this subject, maybe if I try a lot harder with these structures.
top 10 MLP: FIM episodes everyone hates but I like
10. The Show Stoppers/Hearts and Hooves Day
Why everyone else hates it: It shows how really stupid and obnoxious the CMC are.
Why I like it: As me being a not-hater of the CMC, their screwing up in those episodes was tolerable for me. Besides, them making mistakes was an important plot point for the CMC's character so that they could learn their lessons in the end.
9. Just For Sidekicks/Games Ponies Play
Why everyone else hates it: The plots were boring and uncreative, plus Just For Sidekicks was cruel to Spike.
Why I like it: I can agree that Spike got some unfair treatment in JFS, but I even if they're not episodes I'd watch again, the plots where mildly entertaining with its fair share of humorous moments, plus the introduction to some interesting characters like Ms. Peachbottom and Ms. Harshwhinny. Also, the idea of having two episodes that take place in the exact same event played back-to-back was bit of an original thing that I'd never thought I'd see
Pirate!England X Pirate!Tomboy!Reader part 1Readers point of view
My name is (YN). My captains name is Sinbad. I'm part of the crew that none the Kamara also for stealing many things but, the thing that makes me special is that I'm a girl and I can still a great pirate. When I first met Sanbad I was just 16 year old. But normal thief in the city one of the wonders for many years since both my parents are legendary thiefs.
People would think that I would change, maybe I would be different. Well they were wrong. I was running away from the couple of guys who I stole some money from. You know the same old same old, thiefs gets money, then gets chased by a couple guys with big swords. It was basically a regular routine for me I was surprised that they haven't caught me yet. Not that I wanted to be caught. Anywho I ran into Sanbad while I was running away from the two guys with the big swords. At the time I had a small boat, it could fit like three people on it, and food and water.
And for so
Just a thought on our world todayOnce it seemed like technology brought us together but now it feels like it's driving us apart, which isn't good, it raises the likely hood of ignorance proceeding to hatred due to lack of tolerance and comprehension, also as to hinder the average intelligence capacitance, and just makes friendships and relationships harder to have or maintain, who decided it was best to have a machine try to mimic the company of another person when a machine can only do what it is programmed to do? and it would actually be inhumane to make a machine that actually was human equivalent because it would want things that barely anyone would understand why a machine would literally want it and just cast it as a program font, in other words they would have to endure a heavier scrutiny and criticism and environment of ignorance and intolerance, which is a completely unrelated but thorough note, so that considered, why are we being separated from the company of each other? it's not healthy for us as a society

SDW #7: 'Love me!' 'No thanks!' - Part 2IV. Fighting Others To Stay On Top (Ensures You Become Universally Hated)
Now we're entering irredeemable territory.
There are kind-but-misguided people who focus all of their time worrying about their number of views, friends, favorites, or accomplishments. These people may have stress issues over their work and wish to be noticed more, but they're kind people.
There are shy people who don't worry about the numbers, but worry about finding people who like them. They're hard to get close to, but if you play your cards right, they'll let you in. If something goes wrong, it may be hard to reconcile with them, but it's not impossible: because you understand them, you can clear up the misunderstanding and resume being friends.
There are also the people who worry about numbers and what people think of them, and these troubled individuals believe in "star power": that the more work they get done, the more people will like them. I already covered this in Star Power
Any Thoughts? First, let me say that I am not very technologically advanced. I may have a computer, but I do now know that much about it. Sure, I am #1 at using it, but some things confuse me.
If you are using a laptop and reading this, I would like you to look and let me know if you see your HDD light (hard drive indicator) on. For my laptop, it is right next to the spot where I plug in the power cord, and adjacent to the power indicator light. It will have a disk drawing above it. Mine does, at least. Is yours on? Maybe mine has always done this, but I recently noticed it has been flickering, like a lightbulb ready to go out. As I said, I have never looked at it before, so I wouldn't know if this is a new occurrence or old.
Is it expected for a hard drive light to flicker rapidly like this every now and then?
It is usually on solid when the PC is idle enough for the fan to go on.
