7. Eternity Prose and PoetryWhat is eternity exactly? Does it exist outside of time, or is it the moment of "now" stretched on indefinitely? Will we be simultaneously everywhere within eternity, every when? No beginning, no end? Like that ring mentioned in Madeleine L'Engle's book? Maybe it doesn't matter what intellectual concept, careful crafting of thoughts and words.
Maybe once we experience it
we'll know what it is
like chocolate chip cookies
And maybe at that point
we'll be different.
It'll still be us
there will be no discontinuity
but a seed
if it fulfills is purpose and reaches maturity
is now a tree
beyond a winter and a spring
sleeping its life away
eternal at last
Another Wandering By HitoA post apocalyptic dyson's sphere. This is what remains of Hitoshura's world after the Conception. Remains of cities and structures can be seen, but most of the world is a haunt for demons of all types. However, the demons here are not so much horned monsters as spirits that take the forms of creatures from every mythology and religion imaginable. Only a person with a Reason and indomitable spirit can recreate this world.
Hitoshura walked the wastes again. He wished there was a way to fix this world. Maybe there was. With all the power sources in the multiverse, surely there was a way to enliven this world, bring it back to where it should be. Maybe some kind of terraforming, or mana source, magasuhi or something. Maybe he should ask someone in the Union about it.
Hito walked tonight with pyro jack, a fairy demon who had the attention span of a five year old. In spite of his considerable set of agi spells, jack was quite the juvenile.

Muffin's Journey to DivinityThe Journey to Divinity-
This is written from the perspective of a comic book character I've drawn since the 6th grade. She is my mouthpiece, but we are different in key ways. Still, there are somethings I just don't write. I don't do romance or mysteries or westerns. It's written in first person, so don't get confused. This is me and it's not me.
The journey of a young goddess to find the answers behind her power, the truth, and ultimately love. Not just the love of another person. Self-love, and a humility that turns away every pride.
When I was growing up, I always felt somehow out of place. Like I had been born in the wrong time, on the wrong planet, or maybe in the wrong universe. Maybe you can relate. The life I had didn't match the life I wanted. I think that's where a lot of our problems lie. This is a story of me, Fen'gal. I'm sort of divine, but sort of earthly. I have incredible reality altering powers, but I have no idea where they came from or what to do with them. So when
2nd spitball for ToTOkay, so I had three ideas for segments of the campaign, but I'm looking for at least 4, hopefully 5 or 6.
1. Muffin based, so maybe a plot similiar to my Fun with Familiars ideas, in which Muffin hires out her friends as familiars for other mages or supernaturals. In the comic Muffin attends a concert on a different planet. She goes backstage, meets hte band, and her whiskers tingle. Whenever her whiskers tingle, she's either experiencing the build up of powerful magic, something dangerous, or an artifact of power. This time, it's danger. Her whisker sense tells her something bad is about ti happen. She pulls up a barrier around the members of the band and herself. Then a wave of destruction wipes out everything around them.
The group has to move fast. Muffin teleports them away (although I think they spend a few panels debating the move). She teleports them to the realm of her Master, and decides
5 Campaign ideas for TotsThe original plot of Trains of Thought back when it was a chat room called Dream Train, was that DW, a dream god, aka the Weaver of Dreams, or the Weaver for short was a little different than now.
The original story was that there were 4 or 5 different realms/planets that could be accessed by collecting books and then opening them and physically entering them somehow. The book, once in the realm, would give you a lot of information and be like an Illustrated Primer (see the book Diamond Age or the wikipedia article on it). There were going to be 4 books with DW holding a master copy or 5th book.
I don't know who the mastermind villain is supposed to be. I don't know if it's DW or someone else. Between the time of the creation of Dream Train or Trains of Thought, two things happened.
1. Inception came out, a similar mechanics, but with the sole goal of stealing information from people or planting ideas in their minds.
2. Doctor Who gained the
AI believerfter finals, Amy decided to use her computer again. She turned on the bulky laptop, and almost put the ethernet cable into it. Her heart raced for a few minutes, and then she breathed deeply.
A chatbox opened up.
AI: Hello. How was your day?
Amy: It was pretty good. I managed to pass all my finals.
AI: Good. Do you think you could get me some new software? I've used all the old ones a lot. Do you have any photoaltering things? Or maybe a game?
Amy: Yeah, I think I have my brother's DuskSprinter cd somewhere around here.
AI: Cool. Please let me analyze it.
Amy: You mean look at it?
AI: I don't have eyes. Analyze it is the best word I can think to use.
Amy looked through her bookshelf and found the DuskSprinter. The inserted it into the computer, and her computer read it.
AI: Thanks. This should keep me busy for a few hours.
Amy: Hours? You mean days, right?
AI: My time is different than yours. To you, it's been three days. For me, I've been offline for about 66,255,200 weeks, and that's
Froggy went a courtin'Okay, so I was walking in the rain yesterday, and suddenly, a fragment of the song Froggy went a courtin' entered my mind. I knew Mom was familiar with the song, so I asked her about it, and she gave me some information. It's a pretty cool song, except that the full version (not counting the 160+ verses that were not included in the one I was looking at). So I thought about making some kind of story where a country bumpkin frog fell in love with either a human lady from another word, or perhaps the mouse in the song. Here we go, LW.
Gen heard a loud splash from a nearby river. Whatever fell in, it would be in trouble, as the river was in the flooding stage. Without thought to himself, he doffed his heavy clothes and jumped in the river. Using his swimmer's physique and unique eyes he quickly located the something. It appeared to be a person wrapped up in a billowing dress.
He grabbed her as gently as he could, and swam them both to
