The LabyrinthWe are always lost
Trying to find a way out of the labyrinth
Some of us are leaders while others are followers
Others want to get out quickly without any help
With so many twists and turns
We all want out
We all have one common guide
Sometimes we stray from it
When one leaves we all do
When one cries we all do
When one dies we all do
We are all one
We take what we have for granted
We have to learn to appreciate life for what it is
There are no short cuts, cheat codes, or reset buttons.
Suck it up and go
ShinyI've always had this obsession over shiny pokémon. I always liked the alternate colors and the way they shimmered when they came out of their pokéball. The only thing I disliked was the sucky IVs that came with it. I could never get over how angry that made me. At the time I was breeding Pichu for a timid with Hidden Power Ice. I got a new foreign Smeargle the same day. I put him in the Day Care with my Pikachu and rode around on my bike.
I went through the same cycle, get egg, hatch it, check nature and Hidden Power, and release into the wild. I was about to release a Pichu into the wild when I saw a red star next to it. My love for shiny pokémon grew from there. She was of a quiet nature with a poisonous Hidden Power. She wasn't useful in competitive battling, but I still loved her. I took her to the nickname rater and named her "Sun Kiss". She seemed to like that name. It made her smile whenever I said it.
It broke my heart, but I had to put her in my PC and continue
BurnMy parents came home one evening with a Gamecube disc that had "Luigi's Mansion Test 1" in plasma green Sharpie on it. The color seemed fitting for a ghost hunting game. "Don't burn." My mother said. I could tell the game was a prototype; my parents always brought them home for their work. This one was different. I noticed a small sticker that had one word on it "Burn". It was ancient too. I decided to pop it in my Gamecube and play it. I pressed the power button to see nothing out of the usual, just the cube rolling around to make the signature "G". The title screen seemed normal from my copy of Luigi's mansion.
I decided to go ahead with the game. As Luigi sticks his fat nose into the doorway, I saw that Toad wasn't there which was odd because he was always there until the blackout. I went to the spot where he usually was. I saw a shimmer. "Well this is Luigi's Mansion." I mumbled to myself. I figured worse comes to worse that I would just get a game over. I firmly pressed
Hansel and Gretel rewriteOne night, my brother and I decided to run away from our abusive parents. They would whip us until we bleed, starve us until we were dust, and worst of all work us like slaves. We left with nothing more than a loaf of bread. Hansel and I ate it like savage beasts. The moon was shining at its fullest when we approached an entire house made of candy. We gazed in awe as we saw the mote of chocolate flowing underneath the candy cane bridge to that gingerbread house decorated with fluffy frosting and gum drops. We didn't know what to do first, dive in the chocolate mote or devour the house. I couldn't help but wonder who made the house here and why. We slowly crossed the bridge as we were tempted to eat that too. We came to the door not one bit frightened. When my fist came two centimeters away from the door to knock, she opened it. My mouth opened to scream, but only the hot air of my breath came out.
"My my, what do we have here?" she whispered ever so softly, "two walking skeletons."
