Intro to Mecha Galaxy:In the year 3299, mankind has been spacefaring for some time, to the point that permanent colonies on other worlds are no longer merely speculation and have been a fixture in our lives for many generations. What really helped kickoff the exploration of deep space though was neither the privatization of space programs in industrialized nations nor the development of nationalized space programs in industrializing ones but the discovery of certain relics of extraterrestrial origin which among other things, during the technological singularity brought about a method of achieving faster than light travel. We've gone and settled other solar systems and been from one end of the galaxy to the other. As we go out further though, exploring other galaxies and edging closer and closer to the supposed edge of our universe, stranger and stranger things are becoming facts of everyday life. Humanity on the whole is still rather a wasteful lot and the mining and cultivati
Advanced Iron Man#3:European Vacation... of Death!
Narration box: Tony Stark was a genius engineer who cured his own cancer using nanotechnology to rewrite his personal genetic code, altering his cell structure to become the fusion of man and machine known as Iron Man. That's just the tip of the iceberg though. Things for Tony have gone out of the frying pan and into the fire as he finds his company, Stark Industries, being made the target of a number of industrial sabotage attacks. Recently, at the behest of a mysterious yet familiar benefactor who Tony discovered to be his lost older brother Arno, Tony as Iron Man must investigate a series of attacks on the Italian "smart sportscar" factories of Arno and Cecilia Fabbrica that have been committed by the man turned technological monster calling itself MODOK.
It is night time. The crime scene has been cordoned off by la polizia. Tony transforms into Iron Man in an alleyway and steps over the caution tape to examin
Advanced Dr. Strange No. 2:Advanced Dr. Strange No. 2: The Coming of Kaluu.
[Narration box]: Reality as most of us know it is not the full and true reality. It is but a sliver of full on actual reality. What sets our reality true and distinct for us does not necessarily all hold true in other such planes [Show Shuma-Gorath's eye squinting]. Yet, these different realities do interact in ways that are complex. They also influence one another in ways that for the most part it would be better not to trouble yourself with. Those who did trouble themselves with it were regarded by a fearful outside as shamans, wizards, witches and sorcerers. Anytime you had whole societies that embraced this occult knowledge their own disaster usually loomed... entire "lost civilizations" have been born and died several times over yet have faded to obscurity from most history books. All that remains of those forgotten ages are a few intensely troubling occult artifacts. Talismans and o
Advanced Dr. Strange #1:Page 1:
Outside the private practice (unit A) on 177 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village an antique social calling card was picked up from the mailbox by a certain Dr. Strange.
Mordo,... the name struck a bell with Dr. Stephen Strange. Narration box: Years ago, before the old professor died, no wait, was yes, murdered by the very same name that came to mind right now. Before... back when Stephen was a medical student they had been academic rivals. He was getting licensed at a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada. They both were. Back then though the classmate's name was Karl. Stephen: If Baron Mordo or to be more accurate someone for him had mailed this note to the Sanctum Sanctorum then I doubt it could portend anything good.
Dr. Strange: "Wong, see that my remaining appointments from today's schedule are cleared and lock the doors. It would appear my old nemesis is again up to something."
Advanced Dr. Strange Premise:Stephen Strange is a moderately successful private practice psychotherapist, albeit one who for the past few years has been plagued by recurrent dreams. At first he tried to equate it to confabulation but they have gone on for so long that now he is starting to feel that perhaps they have a meaning. These dreams it turns out are actually calling him to accept the mantle of Earth's Sorcerer Supreme.
A somewhat complex man, Stephen also has to put behind him his past in Las Vegas. As a young man to pay his way through medical school (one which is a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada) Stephen worked as a stage magician in the shady performer Quentin Beck (The man who would later be known as Mysterio)'s magic show. Later Beck was caught using crime to fund his act. The resort he and Strange performed at was owned by the Maggia, so to distance themselves from him, they fired Quentin. Disgraced from the entertainment community and no longer able t

Narration Box that is shown to be J.A.R.V.I.S.: "Accessing internal memory logs. Tony Stark was a troubled engineer with drug addictions who found his health failing due to cancer... he resorted to performing an experimental procedure on himself in order to fix that but found himself transformed into the costumed hero people have taken to calling Iron Man. Lately things have been tumultuous for Stark Industries. In the midst of sabotage and espionage from Hammer and a high pressure deal with the Fujikawa group, stock prices have been both up and down quite a bit." Tony: "J.A.R.V.I.S.?! Are you podcasting that? What did I tell you about secret identities?" J.A.R.V.I.S.: "No sir! I'm sorry sir. Very good sir."
Stane over the P.A.: "Tony, come to my office, I've got something to show you."
Tony: "You did what!?!"
Stane: "Relax kid, I just took your Iron Man armor concept and diversified things a bit. Look, if you pare it down a little, re
Statement of Faith: ArtWhen I write, I write the stories I want to read.
Of course I want critiques and feedback and advice! I want to be a better writer. The better I write, the more I will enjoy rereading it. The more others like it, the better I know I'm writing, and that called positive feedback; I'll know to keep doing what I'm doing. If others like it, if others like it enough to buy it someday, cool! I'm [eventually] publishing for myself and select friends, but if other people want copies and are willing to foot some costs, that means I can afford to print my friends' free copies instead of just giving them a file. I like that. The stories are more real when you can hold them in your hand.
Of course I hope that more of my friends, as well as strangers, will like my stories. These are my worlds, and the more people who are interested in them, the more people available to chat with me about my favorite subj
Why #11 of 31 One-Shots Won't Be Coming (Yet)...To the few of you who are actually reading these, I apologize for not keeping up with them as well as I had planned. I confess that when I original conceived the idea, I skipped ahead to see the songs that would be coming up on shuffle and brainstormed on a few of them just in case I fell behind (like I did) and would be able to write and publish them faster. One such idea was inspired by the eleventh song that came up on the prompt, "A Message From the Man in the Moon" by Allan Jones (and Josephine Baker; it's an old song, but listen to both versions to see if there's one you prefer). It was supposed to explore a scene from "An American Werewolf in London" from the point of view of one of the main characters, the late Jack Goodman.
I know what you're thinking, "Can't she let this whole Werewolf thing go already?" Well, I can't. There's very few movies that have fascinated me like that one has. It's that strange mashup of scary, funny, clever, stupid, silly and depressing that's madden
Origins Radio Network - #KickingAssassinAss
Origins Radio Network
We’re back. We’ve got a great show as always. My name is Vibravo Maximum, and this is ORN. I’ve been struggling to get some great guests every week. I don’t understand how Yaleia can get all those female heroes to willingly host her shows. Whatever. Anyway, we got a great show tonight. The show theme tonight is Age of Assassins. Let’s get to it.
My guest tonight is one of the most skilled assassins around. He’s a member of the Assassin’s Guild, which is a prestigious assassin group from Io. I’ve never heard of them, but apparently, they’re really good. Go figure. Anyway, please welcome to the show Cutthroat.
Vibravo: Welcome to the show, Cutthroat. It’s good to be here with you.
Cutthroat: Same here.
Vibravo: So, you’re a unique hero. Your series was cancelled after only one entry. Does that upset you at all?
Cutthroat: Not as much as I would’ve
An Argument for Shulk
With Super Smash Bros. Dimensions just over a month away from launching on the 3DS in Japan, questions concerning the remaining roster are still prominent. Some people are waiting for someone to drop the bomb with a leak, others are doing what they can to dodge leaks so as to not spoil the surprise. We don't know what will happen next, and we won't know for another month or so.
On the flip side, that leaves a little more time for some roster speculation. And today, the focus is on making an argument for a Nintendo character that's been requested quite frequently. (Just in case anyone is wondering, no, it is not Ridley from the Metroid-verse.)
If Operation Rainfall rings any bells, or you subscribed to ChuggaaConroy somewhere within the past few months or more, chances are you know about Xenoblade Chronicles. If you don't, it's a massive open-world RPG that came out near the end of the original Wii's lifecycle. And to say that it was a success is an understat
Money Comm.s Open!So my mother has been having some money problems, and we're pretty much in a ditch, and I pretty much usually shrug it off like "Naw My mom can deal with it" But that's selfish... So I've decided to open money commissions, if anyone is interested.
This is not for my own benefit, this is going entirely to the payment of the house I live in, the food I, my brother, sister Mother and cats eat, AND to the repairs of our car.
If anyone is interested I will work my HARDEST to suit the drawings to your needs-
If you don't like it I redo it until you do.
Still don't like it? Full moneyback.
I would just really like to help my mother out since I never really clean the house of help her with anything.
And sometimes I even act a little spoiled- and I hate it.
So, I am determined to try my hardest to help her out this time.
If anyone has any pocket money they can spend and are interested PLEASE comment below, and even if you aren't interested please wish me luck, because i wish YOU The best
Baseshey people. i know its annoying when you see this base that other people use and the original is deleted. so i have decided to do a thing. comment on my profile about a base that was deleted, link me to the original owner and a person who used it and ill remake it for you. I just know how annoying it is, and i've remade some for myself, so i thought it would be nice if i were to help people and put missing ones out there for everyone :3
Leave a comment stating:
1) the missing base
2) original maker
3) and a link to a used base
help me help you
I'm not sure what to call thisSo what led to the meltdown? Someone on an anger management forum asked me that after suggesting some books. Unfortunately, for now, it looks like I won't be able to get any -professional- help to avoid these depression related anger meltdowns that might have cost me at least one great friend. My family doesn't really consider what I go through to be... A thing. I suppose all I can do is try to find online support, read some books, see if the church has something and hope for forgiveness from everyone.
But maybe writing out the answer to this question will help me and maybe help someone else. Or at least provide a laugh.
I already mentioned that I blamed myself for the car being stolen. If I didn't need a wheelchair, we could have stayed at a friend's house in a better neighborhood instead of spending money on the hotel that required dad to work in the neighborhood the van got stolen. I shouldn't blame myself... But I do. But the other reason is that the funeral itself was probab
Random 1 - Life n DeathSome people overstay their welcome; some just know exactly when to go.
If you wonder if Robin Williams left on time, I think he did. People can say how much they love, miss, need, or care for him NOW; but, that was NOT how he felt when he was at the point-of-no-returns.
Life ends not when someone is dead. It ends when someone is no longer living. What remains is just a soulless body counting the days going by...
Genderqueer and some terms that fit into it. Genderqueer is a term that covers many other terms.
OK well, honestly i'm new to this. I come from a strict christian background so I only recently found out about different genders (other then male and female) as well as other sexual orientations beside heterosexuality (aka straight).
I never felt like I fit into either the female or male groups. I got along fine with both but I never really belonged with either. I recently figured out that I am Agender. This term basicly means that I have no gender.
Most genderqueer people they are a different gender then the one that they are born as (their biological sex) but feel they are either Female-to-Male or Male-to-Female. Or that they are genderless, more then one gender or switch back and forth between genders.
Here are some terms that fit into the Genderqueer category:
Agender (aka Neutrois) means that you have no gender.
Transgender means that you do not identify as you biological sex.
