“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"
"The broad wall of Babylon shall be leveled to the ground, and her high gates shall be burned with fire. The peoples labor for nothing, and the nations weary themselves only for fire."
"It is more blessed to give than to receive."
"For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
"Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident."
"Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering (for He is faithful who promised), and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works."
Don't worry, old sig is still saved. I'll probably put it back...someday.
WOTM #26 Guidelines thread is up! This month's theme is Evil Wins! Let's see those entries!!
A highly successful roleplay thread of mine that I have made into a fanfiction! It's about a bunch of anime characters coming to life in the real world, and a group of those characters are then found by a trio of otaku girls! And while they're trying to figure out how their fictional little friends got there in the first place, a mysterious group emerges called Operation Anime, whose goal is to wipe out all the characters that exist in the real world!
Link to the story on FanFiction here.
Also be sure to check out the manga based on the fic by OverlordRoo! Link to it here on SmackJeeves.

No more books to look forward to, no more adventures with my favorite characters (those who survived, at least ;_; ), no more hoping for the horrible fucktards to get what they deserve...
But yeah, I get this way with the endings of most books, shows, and games that I get really into. It's great because you finally get to know what happens to everyone, all the questions answered, no more loose threads, but it's also over and done with. It's such a bittersweet sensation.
Did you know we have a Writer of the Month contest? Come join it.
WOTM #26: Evil Wins is open and accepting entries through June 4th.
The man who claims to rule and teach
Is only master for the rich
And anyway succumbs
To the laws of nature in the endSlow decay and rest
As we're running fast,
And the mighty ones are nothing
But the last ones.If you give the world a chance
It will beat you down to your knees.
If you try to fight it back
It will beat you again and again.Everything is a weapon if you hold it right.Just a few facts that I thought you should know...
Life increases your chances of dying,
so why are you trying at all?
On a walk in the summer sun you're more likely to be in a homocide,
not to mention the cancer you'll get and the light waves frying your eyes.
As you're breathing this air,
you're increasing your chances of getting diseased,
so retreat in your house with your spouse,
the one person most likely to kill you.
Imagine a leaf as it falls to the ground
whining about an obstruction on the way down,
curling itself to shield from the wind so hopelessly.Life is a lesson
You learn it when it's over
Absolutely. Every time I read the Pendragon books I feel a bit like Im "coming home." All the places and characters are so familiar and welcoming. When I finish the last book, I feel really alone. Like I'm thrown back into the real world and I hate it.
Pendragon is the big one, but I get the feeling a little bit everytime I finish a series. I'm sure I'll feel that way after I finish Dark Tower. I also get that feeling after a play that I am in ends.
Haven't you heard?
Spartans never die.
Mortal Engines was probably the worst for this when I read it. I don't get it so much anymore but after The Millenium Trilogy I moped for a few days, especially because there are the approximations of two more books out there which no-one seems to plan on publishing.
As far as books go, i can't think of very many books that have had that affect on me. The book "Unbroken" sort of had that affect on me...I havn't finished the Wheel of Time series yet, but i'm pretty sure i'm going to be depressed when it ends. As far as game's go, Final Fantasy X depressed me when it was over. Primarily because i didn't see the scene after the credits. Altough i don't like most Anime's, one time i watched a show called "Clannad After Story" and that one made me sad too when it ended.
