  1. If powers were the determining factor in an FPL match, then I doubt any of you would still be here after all these years.
  2. Fanfiction is horrible. It cheapens the characters and plot lines, and when it's not being unfaithful to the original premise of something, it's completely overhauling the work. It's also an excuse to make random sex scenes between characters that have no background or relation. And that's terrible. Nothing worse than seeing beloved characters cheapened in such a fashion (unless it's Japanese, but that's completely different...)
  3. Rest of World>>>>North North America. Spain won. Thank you. That is all.
  4. Right, because a team with 3 big players and a bunch of minimum salary guys could NEVER win the championship... Wait a minute...
  5. For once, I feel no inclination to root for either team. Now that Germany is gone, there isn't anyone to root against either. Ahhhh... I'll cheer for the Netherlands, even though I'm pretty sure Spain has this.
  6. I always root against Brazil. No exceptions. So you can imagine my happiness that they lost. Right now, I'm rooting for any team that isn't Germany. I hate how they think they can waltz all over my Three Lions and get away with it.
  7. If you'd like to read something that DOESN'T contain violence, try Kino's Journey. It was the first manga I ever read, and it's stuck with me all the way till now. Info can be found here.
  8. Who is this "next" Michael Jordan you speak of? Oh, it must be that sad guy on the bench. Finals series tied 1-1. Bet the Lakers wished they had Rajon Rondo right now.
  9. Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!! :P Celtics win 4-2!!!!! LeBron and the Cavs can SUCK IT!!!! Hahahahaha, go Celtics! Show those Cavs who rules the East!!!! Heheheheheheeee!!! Celtics win!!! Hahahahahahaha!!!! :lol:
  10. Mass Effect, Fallout, and their ilk (the WRPG genre) cannot be made into movies because there is too much left to the player in the actual game to generate a universal canon. That being said, movies based on games are a bad idea. Video games are better than movies anyway, so why spend 2 hours watching a fast-forwarded plot when you could be looking for treasure, or leveling up, or something.
  11. I feel like i should reply to this is some form... Ah, here we go. Dura lex, sed lex.
  12. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! All right, finally, a REAL Gaiman movie! Still wish it was American Gods though...
  13. It's funny that an admin probably has the biggest signature on the site...
  14. It was a carbon copy of the epic, with a few added extras and no Hermes and Artemis. Oh, and it changed the entire premise of the journey that Perseus took. Which is actually it's greatest failing, because that means the plot is convoluted and the characters are one-dimensional. Even the action sequences weren't that good.
  15. Ivan said that it was less than 20, which means there are only four characters, not five. And these four are obviously the four he himself wrote.
  16. I wrote this for the CBUB Tournament, then I saw that it was both a fight and 250 words long, I had to change it. I figure it will go to waste, so I'm posting it here. ***************************************************************************************************** Once there was a garden, with hedges growing towards the sky, and flora abundant in a rich tapestry of life, intersecting and interacting as life must. Now, it is a desert, the only trace of its former existence being the man who walks in it. Once, there was a maze, with multidirectional paths that led to everywhere yet nowhere, to many places, and to one place. Now, the maze has long dissolved to memory, and there is only a road, whose destination cannot be clearer. Once, long ago, before gardens and mazes and paths, Destiny of the Endless took his book, and his wise hands brushed the cover, felt the smooth texture, feeling the pages in his fingers, running them through as time will. Destiny then opened the cover, and began to read, and walk his garden, stopping and going as the book commanded. The book was the universe, and in its pages, Destiny held your life like a character in a fiction, feeling what you felt, experiencing what you experienced. Destiny was the book’s keeper, his purpose tied only to find the end of it. There were those who already knew what the end would be, but it was not their place to tell Destiny what would happen in the book. So Destiny read, and walked, and the universe passed by with the same speed as the eye, and the same sound as peeling paper. Now, there was only one page left. The book was nearly finished; his work almost complete. All that remained was to reach the end of the single path the book had long ago branched in to, and say his last farewells. The temptation to turn the page backwards was crushing, even for him. But he knew it would be futile. Time lost could not be regained, merely changed. And nothing could change what was happening now. Destiny turned the page, facing the last blocks of text, the last remnants of this universe. He could see it now, the very space that composed the vacuum collapsing into itself as its creator uncreated it. Then there was nothing, now there would be nothing. Only a few planes, like his own, would remain untouched until the end. Even his fellow Endless had faded into the nothingness, leaving him to witness the end of all things. He could count now, the paragraphs, the words, till the end. One final page remained. Destiny turned it. It was completely blank. “Hey, big brother,†came the voice from the end of the path, “I was starting to think you wouldn’t make it.†Destiny raised his head from the book, and met the gaze of his sister, Death. She wore a smile, even if the book had told him it was a lie. She was tired, it said, so very tired. The Death of a Universe was no easy task to oversee. But she had done it quite well, Destiny admitted. There was nothing left, and the book was empty. Destiny closed it. It was finished now. Everything was finished. Death had only one task left. “Greetings, my sister,†said Destiny quietly, “It is here, with you, that all paths must meet.†“It’s so quiet here,†lamented Death, strolling amongst the slowly dissolving weeds and shrubs, the only plants left in Destiny’s realm. “I always thought, you know, we’d all go out, in like a huge bang, kinda like the way we went in. But, there’s nothing.†“This is for you, my sister.†Destiny reached out his hand, and presented the book to her. The chain had vanished, for it was no longer his. “Oh yeah, your book. Did you like it?†asked Death. “It cannot be liked, merely experienced,†explained Destiny. “Well, did you at least like the ending?†Destiny smiled, and turned his blind eyes toward his sister, gazing directly into her. It was the first time Destiny had ever smiled. “It doesn’t end, sister. I see it now, it doesn’t end.†Death smiled in return, and gave her brother a final kiss on the cheek. “Take my hand, Destiny.†A flapping of wings tore the silence of the garden, and echoed throughout the oblivion. Death wiped the tears from her eyes. “Good-Bye, brother.†She took the book from the ground, for now it was light enough to lift. She disappeared. ********************************************** Death’s realm is a nice suburban home, complete with a lawn and a fish pond. Waiting for her was a strongly built man, with a green cloak and pale skin. “Hey, it’s done,†called Death to him. He smiled softly. “The book,†he said, “give it to me.†Death handed him the book, and he quickly leafed his fingers through the pages, feeling the time slip through his grasp. He turned to the empty page. “It isn’t done. All stories must have an ending.†“My brother would agree. You two would probably get along.†The stranger looked at her, and then gave a chuckle. “Yes, perhaps we might,†he returned the book to her. “You must write it. Since all endings are with you, who more appropriate?†Death seemed reluctant. “What do I write?†she asked. “Anything,†replied the Specter. “Well, what about, ‘And they all lived happily ever after’†“A good ending. A fitting ending.†Death wrote it on the blank page, and returned the book. “One last thing,†she said. Death ran to her home, secured the windows, fed the fish, and turned off the lights. Then, she took the symbol around her neck, her sigil, and locked the realm of Death. “Okay, let’s go now,†Death leaned in and kissed the Specter on the lips. “You know, this is usually the part where I tell them to take my hand.†“No, this time, take my hand.†She grasped it, and together, hand in hand, they strolled down the sidewalk, and into the blackness.
  17. Superman-Prime. Or else another character with "Flash" in his name.
  18. It's not April Fool's day where I live anymore, so I assume that you're telling the truth.
  19. Your signature... You put "here" twice. Evilness is not a word. Neither is braveness.
  20. By fanfiction, I'm referring to fiction regarding previously established characters, but not dealing with any scenario or match.
  21. My all-time favorite track in video games has to be Dearly Beloved from Kingdom Hearts. That track makes me want to cry... The game that had the most number of good tracks is Shadow of the Colossus. The music was so fitting, I found myself repeating battles because the tracks were so fitting. Of course, a REAL challenge would be to force someone to listen to Eyes on Me and not kill themselves.
  22. Uhhh, Artemis Fowl is the villain of his books, considering all he does is steal and/or look out for his own interests.
  23. Because somehow there are hundreds of trillions of Force Sensitive Psykers in the Super-Galaxy, where there aren't even a million Jedi Knights, and where neither psionic energy nor the Force exist in like... four sixth's of it.
