Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 8 Part 2Chill grabbed the coordinates of Deathwatch's Sin City base from Dmitri and entered them into his gauntlets. With a final smile to Zodiac and the other heroes who were about to set off, he activated his personal teleporter, and suddenly found himself a block away from the facility, down a dark alleyway; giving a rather poor hobo the shock of his life when he just suddenly appeared out of nowhere.
Chill looked out onto the street, and could see the massive complex straight ahead. Surrounded by hundreds of foot soldiers. This was his mission: dealing with all of them before the others arrived. Chill caught his breath as he purposely did the most stupid thing he could possibly do.
Chill walked into the middle of the street, right in front of all the Deathwatch Soldiers, and shouted "HEY DEATHWATCH! WHICH OF YOU WANTS THEIR ARSES KICKED FIRST!!"
The Deathwatch Soldiers stood there dumbstruck for just a moment at the utter bizarreness of Chill's sudden ap
Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 8 Part 1The New Grand Canyon base was starting to look like a decent facility with all the heroes working on it for several days. Chill was busy packing a Medical Bag in the infirmary, when Alexis walked in.
"Going somewhere?" she asked.
Chill nodded. "It's just about time for us to head to Sin City." he said. "Thanks to the information we received from Spark Maiden and Lady Blitz, we know that Big Gina is being held prisoner there, and we need to save her as soon as possible."
Alexis nodded hesitantly. "Yeah, but don't you think we're being too hasty?"
Chill stopped packing and raised an eyebrow. "Hasty?"
Alexis took a step forward, searching for the right words. "Listen, I understand that this Gina person is in danger and we need to get her back, but... maybe we should wait a bit? The base has only just become operational, and Deathwatch is probably really pissed about what happened in Celestine City, let alone everywhere else."
"Of course they're fu
Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 7 Part 6The heroes arrived in Celestine City, teleporting to the roof of the Police station. From their vantage point, they could clearly see the Deathwatch forces amassed in the City Square and hundreds more soldiers flooding the streets.
"This is insane..." muttered Ophelia.
Tanook patted her on the back and laughed. "Don't worry, we've handled large groups of these guys before back when we attacked the Fortress."
Chill shook his head. "The Fortress was nothing like this. There's at least 10 times more soldiers, and it looks like they have some heavier artillery than usual." Chill fashioned a pair of binoculars out of ice and handed them to Dmitri.
"Dmitri, are those large machines what I think they are?" asked Chill.
Dmitri gasped. "They still have Mechanoids? Impossible... The factory was completely destroyed."
Chill sighed. "Well, it's entirely possible if they're called Mechanoids, the Mechanic made them independently?"
Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 7 Part 5Chill awoke to the sound of rumbling outside of Alexis's apartment. He pulled himself off of the couch he had slept on, and noticed Alexis staring out the window, a worried look on her face.
"What's the matter?" asked Chill as he went over towards the window. "What's going on?" He was cut short however when he saw what was causing the rumbling sound.
Hundreds of armoured troopers marching through the streets to the centre of the city. There were about a dozen mechas amongst the troops, and tanks spread out every 10 columns or so.
"Dear God..." muttered Chill. "It's an invasion."
Alexis just stared in horror. "It's finally begun. They must have found out that my Dad was working against them and now they're here to raze the city to the ground."
Chill had no words of reassurance here, as he simply gazed at the massive amount of men at Deathwatch's disposal.
As the rumbling continued on the streets below, the two jumped when they heard
Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 7 Part 4Alexis Hill was gathering her things to head to the supermarket. It was close to 10pm at night, but she wasn't worried, as she had gotten used to the city being safe at night thanks to the police force, and of course her father's presence, though she was loathed to admit it.
As she headed for the door, she walked past a shelf with two metal gauntlets on it; keepsakes from a time long past, and she suddenly thought back to the man who had appeared earlier at her door. The man claiming to be Chill, her father's superhero Identity before he gave himself the powers of a Sun, did actually remind her of her dad before everything changed. And despite how far fetched his story was, she lived in a world where super-villains ruled the planet. There wasn't much that wasn't possible these days. Alexis sighed and shook her head. The man had probably left the city by now and gone back to god-knows-where to fight the Deathwatch in a futile last ditch stand of some
Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 7 Part 3Power Core and Zodiac found themselves in a district of Warehouses, getting even closer to the distress beacon. P.C. was getting slightly more anxious as he knew that the Mechanic's base of operations was hidden close by, and he wasn't wanting to run into him anytime soon.
"So..." began P.C. "Are we getting any closer?"
Zodiac glared at P.C. "I'm not sure Power Core. You're the one that knows where the Mechanic's base is."
P.C. was startled at this outburst, but still tried to keep up the act. "Um... I'm not Power Core, I'm Chill, remember?"
Zodiac kept on walking. "Yeah, and I'm the Shadow Reaper." She turned around to face P.C. "Drop the act Core. I knew it was you as soon as you entered the comms room."
P.C. sighed. "Fine. How did you figure it out?"
"Quite simple. You're slightly taller and have a larger frame than Chill." she replied. "Remember, I saw the two of you together and I took note of your diffe
Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 7 Part 2"WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THIS?!!!" exclaimed Chill.
Power Core sighed. The two had met up in the same alleyway they had first met, during the middle of the night.
"What I am saying is that this Massacre you're talking about is news to me." replied Power Core. "I had no part in this, and it seems that the Deathwatch has chosen to keep me out of the loop. Perhaps they suspect me."
Chill glared angrily at his doppelganger. "Well, I assumed you would know since you were the one that performed the last massacre of a large group of heroes."
Power Core's eyes glowed red with anger. "Must you bring that up? I was forced to do that! Otherwise my daughter would have been killed!"
"Yeah, yeah, I know. You've told me before." said Chill. "Because of your actions, your daughter is safe and Celestine City is a safe haven from whatever the Deathwatch do. But still, I would never go so far as to murder a superhero-" Chill stop
Otherworld: Frozen Heart - Chapter 7 Part 1It was truly hell down in the sewers. Heroes, Soldiers and Innocent Civilians all lay dead or injured throughout the base. And in the middle of it all, Chill was forced to witness the devastating results of the attack. Forced to wade through sewerage to tend to even more wounded than ever before; sewerage that now ran dark crimson with the blood of his former allies.
Besides horrified, disgusted, and hopeless, Chill felt guilty most of all. He and Zodiac had left the base only briefly when the Mega Beast attacked, going topside to gather more medical supplies for their already dwindling collection. Upon their return, they found the base torn assunder, the Teleport system that brought the heroes to this world destroyed, and hundreds dead and dying in the waste of the city above.
Chill did all he could. He and Zodiac rounded up the wounded into the main facility, ignoring the dead and trying to clean the wounds of those they found alive, but there were
RoaM #6 - NostalgiaI'm a kid of the 90's, and proud of it. I happen to like a lot of movies and TV shows that the majority of Pop Culture hate, most of which if I told you I would lose all semblance of credibility. However, sometimes people have a habit of going too far. And those people usually happen to have grown up in the 80's. -___-
Now, I don't hate the 80's (far from it), but I'm one of the first to admit that a lot of things that came out in that era weren't very good, the original Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as examples. They were good back in the day, but today, they really are not very good, story wise and animation wise. I honestly prefer the later TMNT show, and Transformers Armada, although I respect all those that do prefer the older shows. However, when other versions of these shows came out, I embraced them and enjoyed seeing how new artists interpreted the ideas and told different stories with the same characters. The 80'
How to Judge a Book by its CoverWhen it comes to the "literature" from the Young Adult section at the library, I think it's gotten to the point that you can indeed judge a book by its cover.
Just because something is a book, does not mean that it doesn't make you stupid. Sometimes books can be brain-rotting, even more so than a good old, wholesome cartoon, if I may be so bold.
Today I will show you a guide about how to judge a book by its cover; that way you can conveniently know what books to avoid and which you decide are tolerable.
WARNING!!!!!!!! DO NOT CONFUSE THESE FOR GOOD BOOKS THAT HAVE SOME OF THE SAME TRAITS.
Okay, carry on:

Top 12 Problems with Naruto's Final Arc
I leap and roll off of the train and watch it crash off a cliff.
Things have become so stupid, convoluted and contrived that I no longer care about how the Naruto series ends. Kishimoto has demonstrated that he doesn't give a damn about story consistency and he's just going to do whatever the hell he wants regardless of if it makes sense.
It's his story, so technically he can do that. But that doesn't mean that he should.
When a writer just ignores their own set rules and starts doing whatever the hell they want, then it shows in the story and weakens it. Things like Deus Ex Machina/Diabolus Ex Machina are employed when the writer writes themselves into a corner with no other way out; Handwaves are meant to direct the audience away from plotholes so that they can "enjoy" the show; or even jump sharking just to get a cheap reaction from the audience.
There's a lot of them, but some are just symptoms of the disease or signals from noise. Stuff like Naruto disregarding Hinata's
Writing Rants: Short ChaptersI've started "Writing Rants" to let out some steam about various problems with online stories (*cough cough* WATTPAD *cough cough*). This series is meant for every reader/writer. No matter if you're looking for ways to improve your writing, if you've also wanted to rant but could never find the words, or if you simply like rants in general, I hope you will enjoy this series.
Sometimes I will use "Soul" (my fanfiction) as an example for things, but in no way does this mean that I think it's perfect, because it's far from it.
On with the rant!
Let me clarify one thing: I know it's hard to write long chapters, especially for new writers. When I started writing, my chapters were only a couple hundred words long. Heck, I'd be happy if I managed to get over a thousand, let alone the 2000-4000 words I currently write for "Soul". So don't assume that short chapters are automatically bad, because that's not what I'm trying to say. It just really annoys me sometimes when they're short for no
Somepony to Watch Over Me - ReviewThis review will contain spoilers for those who have not seen the latest episode.
The premise of this episode is that Applebloom tries to convince Applejack that she doesn't need her to constantly watch over her all the time.
From that brief description of the premise, you can tell that this episode is going to heavily feature the relationship between Applebloom and Applejack, and on that note I couldn't be more excited for this episode. These two were literally the first siblings introduced in the series and yet, in spite of that, we've had virtually no time whatsoever devoted to their relationship aside from episodes showing the two more as side-characters, or how Applejack regards her family as a whole. This always bugged me as we've seen in the past that episode focusing on siblings, like in "Sisterhooves Social" or my personal favourite episode "A Canterlot Wedding", that such stories can be very good. As such, regardless of what else I may feel about it, I praise the episode for
Dressed to DecieveHiking in the mountains of Utah, Coty Creighton spotted a goat that didn’t look like the rest of the herd. A closer look revealed that the unusual animal was actually a man dressed as a goat. When authorities contacted the man, he described his costume as a painter’s suit covered in fleece, and he said he was testing his disguise for a hunting trip.
The hunter’s deception reminds me of Jesus’ words: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15). False teachers do not bear the fruit of God’s Spirit. Rather, they “walk according to the flesh…and despise authority” (2 Peter 2:10). They are bold, egotistical, and given to greed. Ruled by their own desires, they exploit people by using deceptive words. The Bible says these wayward spiritual leaders are headed for destruction and will take many unsuspecting and undiscerning people with them.
Jesus, the Good She
How to do a RP [Tutorial]For everyone who don't know how to do a RP and wants to know how to do it. Here are some of the basic steps you need to know how it works.
What is a RP? It is know as Roleplaying. You play as a certain from TV show or a character that is original.
Step 1: Choose a fandom
This is one of the first things you have to do. You have to choose a fandom that you are gonna do a RP in. If you do a crossover fandom RPs, you need to have an explanation how they got there, don't just put them in because you want to.
Step 2: Choose a character
This is kind of important thing to do before you start a RP, you have to pick a character either be a canon character or an OC, if you do a RP without a character, then people with know that you're playing as yourself. So, yeah picking a character is just simple.
Step 3: Make a plot
Most RPs have to revolve around a certain plot and it has to be where a character gets into these situations or predicaments that it has to have a reasonable p

What happens when you take a brony musician and mix him with Dream Theater, Ayreon, and a bit of Avantasia, with a side touch of Trent Reznor mixing?
You get this album:
HeyLasFas's third album (Or fourth, I cannot be sure), 'Destiny: A Tale of Unicorn Wings'.
What else can I say?It's brony stylized music with a concrete storyline that is something Ajren Lucassen, creator and visionary of Ayreon, would plan for his own albums, combined with the vocal style of Dream Theater's James LeBrie, the mix techniques of Dream Theater meeting po
Logic's Expectations: Rebuild of Evangelion 4.0
To be perfectly blunt, I'm certain that this movie will suck.
Normally, I'm the guy who won't bash an unreleased product and will wait and see before I give a final opinion on if it's good or bad. I went into Soul Calibur V assuming that it would be awesome because previous games in the Soul Calibur series were awesome. I wasn't a huge Final Fantasy fan, but I didn't go from Final Fantasy XII into Final Fantasy XIII expecting the latter to suck, especially since I thought XII was great. I also didn't go into Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 expecting it to suck after the immensely satisfying experience that I had watching Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0...
Considering my views on Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0, I believe that its fair to go ahead and call the final Rebuild movie a dud.
However, I want you to understand that I didn't come to this assumption lightly and I actually tried to pick at straws and potential ways that this next installment could in fact be good. But Rebuild 3.0 left such a mess
