The Life and Times of Out-Of-Ammo!!!
Welcome to my Blog. Here you can read and comment on any of my blogs. Thank you.
The Ninja Kitten Home Skillet Union!-Leader
The World Ends With You Union-Officer
The Sims Lovers Union-Officer
Don't click the Spoiler!!!!
A lot of my friends have already posted these blogs, so this may not come as much of a suprise for some of you, but it still needs to be said.
Gamespot isn't what it used to be. This site used to be awesome, with a comment system that wasn't annoying, unions where you don't have to post several times to make your message appear, and pages that actually loaded on the first try (not the SEVENTH).
The only reason I've stayed on this site is for my friends in the Catz Clan, and we've finally decided to leave for a Zeta Board, the Catz Clan Sanctuary. It works MUCH better.
So, with there being no further need for this place, I'm leaving.
I never actually thought I would be saying that. I've been here for nearly four years, and in that time I've met some of the most awesome people I've ever had the pleasure of talking to (along with fat guy with a foot fetish).
But, with having all of them in a nice new location that to post in, there really is no further purpose for this website.
Actually, I'm still going to use this site for posting reviews I write and keeping track of my game collection, but as far as communication goes, I can't stand this site anymore.
If anyone wants, you may join our Sanctuary. We don't really talk about Cats, going against the title, so what we DO talk about is...random sh*t, pretty much.
Gamespot, it has been a good run. I shall miss the good ole' days, but I'm glad to finally be rid of you.
Goodbye, Home Skillets.
Originally, my GOTY blog was going to be well-written. With images, different fonts, different font sizes, different font colors, a lot of different information, etc.
Then, half way through, my computer crashed, and since I don't see it as being worth typing out again in nice detail, you all get something I'm writing as quickly as possible.
Note: I've played some games this year that have made it as some of my favorite games of all time. As a result, I have a noticeably large amount of 10's. I promise you all I'm not quite as forgiving as these 10's make me seem.

Wow, that actually wasn't as dreadful as I thought it would be.
I'm still playing Skyrim. It's amazing. I still have the College of Winterhold and Civil War quests to do, and then I'll be going on to play Skyward Sword. Or maybe finish Fatal Frame...
Later, Home Skillets.
It has been quite a long time since I blogged...2 months, I believe. Or something around there.
I'm never here, unfortunetly. When I'm not doing something in real life, I actually AM here, just not posting. I actually visit my union, along with the Catz Clan, semi-regularly, but I barely ever post. I non-creepily lurk. Non-creepily.
Since I never plan these things in advance, expect several unrelated things to be talked about here.
First of all, tomorrow I shall be visiting my mother for Christmas. I'll be staying there until Thursday, which sounds enjoyable enough. At least I'll (hopefully) be able to see snow. There isn't internet in that house, so unless I need to urgently take care of something, it's not very likely I'll be active on here. Not that I'm very active anymore to begin with.
As an early Christmas gift, at the beginning of the month, my dad bought me a new phone. It's a Motorola Atex 2. It's definitely a step up from my super-cheap razor. I'm enjoying it a lot-it's pretty easy to use, and the variety of apps are awesome. Also, it's caused me to turn into an Angry Birds fan. Seriously, that game is unbelievable simple, yet strangely addictive...
Speaking of addictive games, I've been playing the hell out of Skyrim lately. Remember when, in an earlier blog, I stated that my interest in video games was dwindiling? You can safely conclude that Skyrim has fixed that. I've, so far, completed the Dark Brotherhood, Theives Guild, and Main Questlines, and am about to start the questline for The Companions. I'm not officially confirming that it's my GOTY, but...your guess that it is wouldn't be fully incorrect.
Christmas is looking to be good this year. I've already recieved many gifts, and with more to come, I'm pretty content. Christmas shopping wasn't difficult for me, either, so I didn't have much trouble with that-although it did leave me BROKE. But, of course, when does it NOT make you broke? Since I don't particularly pertain to any specific holiday, I prefer to say "Happy Holidays", mostly just to cover a broader spectrum. So...Happy Holidays!
I downloaded Firefox. It's...decent. Better than Internet Explorer.
I won the Poetry Out Loud competition at my school a couple of weeks ago! If you don't know, Poetry Out Loud is a competition held across the USA, where students at schools memorize and recite famous poems for an audience. I recited Walt Whitman's "A Noiseless, Patient Spider". Walt Whitman being one of my favorite poets and all. At regionals, I'll have to recite 2 poems, and I'll be facing a lot more students, with a lot more talent than I, so I'm not sure how high how high my confidence levels are on that. However, you can all rest asure that I shall give it my all.
I'm not sure where to go from here...
Happy Holidays, Home Skillets!
-Out-Of-Ammo, a person that knows he left something out.
PS-I plan to do a vlog soon, probably not long after my GOTY awards, so you can all...look forward to that...I guess.
Long Vlog is long.
One, I still haven't painted my door.
Two, I ate that Skull Lollipop RIGHT after I finished these.
So, I made these because I suck at saying things in text. And because I was bored.
Later, Home Skillets!
-Out-Of-Ammo, the bastard that has traits contained in at least 4 different subcultures.
The above ad brought to you by me, after seeing the product in a Wal-Mart, and remembering how the commercial would play NON-*******-STOP. Ruining my Spongebob.
Ah, yes, you all haven't heard from me in while. I haven't posted a blog in a while, haven't been posting in unions much, and haven't been commenting much. Why?
Life has gotten more awesome. And busy.
I'm not even ON this site for more than 2 days a week-Monday and Wednesday.
I'm sorry for not being active. I'm trying to be, but as much as life is keeping me away, it has suddenly become a lot harder to. Especially since I like to spend most of my Mondays and Wednesdays playing games or reading.
This blog was mostly to apologize for the above, and to say I'm still planning to be more active, just...not as much.
-The last game I beat recently is Bioshock, which is now one of my favorite games. I'm now playing Fatal Frame, which is also awesome...it definitely succeeds in being creepy.
-I have grown a love for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Just incase you haven't noticed.
-My girlfriend bought me a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic calender! ^^ Which I can't use until 2012. But still!
-I...can't think of anything else to place here.
Wow, you would think that with how busy my life has become, there would be more interesting things to place there. I'm probably forgetting some things, but...apparently nothing too important.
I am back!
First: LOLcat update.
I'm sure everyone missed that.
So, yes, I'm back early. Reason why is simple: I missed my girlfriend. So I came back earlier than usual.
Actually, I got back and started posting again about a week ago, but....I was too lazy to write a blog. And then that glitch came up (the one that makes everything to the right of a user's page disappear), and I wanted to wait for that to be fixed so that everyone would see this blog.
So, small updates:
-The only game I beat while I was gone was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. It was amazing, though I'm sure most realize that.
-It's frickin' 100 degrees here! As opposed to the 70 degrees where my mom lives! What the Hell?! I hate the south!
-Rise Against made a video for "Make It Stop (September's Children)" while I was gone! And it's a video for It Gets Better to boot! It takes a LOT to make me cry, but...when I first got the album, that song made me cry. And the video made me cry AGAIN. Damn it all. >_>
-I read a lot of books while I was gone. I'm not sure how many of you want to hear about the books I read though...
-I can't think of anything else to update on!
So, Woo Boost.
Laterz, Home Skillets!
-Out-Of-Ammo, who needs more money.
If you can't watch videos: I'm leaving to see my mother in North Carolina during the summer, and won't be back until early August.
I won't be able to get on because she doesn't have internet (she hates it-I have no idea why). So, until August, you all won't be seeing me.
So, until August, laterz!
When I come back, I'll be sure to have a Hero update, as well as that 100th blog spectacular I was planning.
-Out-Of-Ammo, king of all Home Skillets.
I decided to make a vlog.
I stutter a lot.
Well...yeah, leave a comment telling me what you think I should do. I need something, people!
Laterz, Home Skillets!
I've been wanting to do a blog like this for a while, both to show my music interests, as well as hear everyone else's opinions on my choices. Plus, it's a nice change from the random **** I usually post.
Note: This is my opinion. If you have a problem with my picks then, well, deal.
#10: Green Day
Green Dayis an American punk rockband formed in 1987. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre' Cool.
With Punk being my favorite genre, of course I have Green Day here.
#9: Black Veil Brides
Black Veil Bridesis an American band formed in 2006 inCincinnati,Ohio. The group is composed ofAndy Biersack("Andy Six") (vocals), Ashley Purdy (bass, backing vocals), Jake Pitts (lead guitar),Jinxx(guitar, violin) and Christian Coma (drums).
The thing about BVB is, you either love them or hate them. I'm the former.
TheFlobotsare an Americanrockandhip hopmusical group fromDenver, Colorado, formed in 2000 byJamie Laurie.
They, in my opinion, meld Hip Hop (which I'm usually not that big a fan of) and rock perfectly, and are one of the deepest bands I've ever seen.
White Flag Warrior (With ******* Tim McIlrath of Rise Against!!!!! )
Skilletis an AmericanChristian rockband formed inMemphis, Tennesseein 1996. The band currently consists of husband and wifeJohn(lead vocals, bass) andKorey Cooper(rhythm guitar, keyboards), and drummer and vocalistJen Ledger.
I'm not religious, but I LOVE this band regardless.
#6: Kaiser Chiefs
Kaiser Chiefsare an Englishindie rockband fromLeedswho formed in 1997.
My favorite Indie Rock band (Hard to choose between them and Arcade Fire, but...Kaiser Chiefs win. ).
Gallowsare an Englishhardcore punkband fromWatford, England. The band was formed in 2005 after the disbandment of founding member Laurent Barnard's previous band, My Dad Joe.
Ahhhh...hardcore punk...the best kind of punk.
Rammsteinis a GermanNeue Deutsche Härteband from Berlin, formed in 1994.The band consists of membersTill Lindemann(lead vocals),Richard Z. Kruspe(lead guitarandbacking vocals),Paul H. Landers(rhythm guitar, backing vocals),Oliver "Ollie" Riedel(bass guitar),Christoph "Doom" Schneider(drumsandelectronic percussion) andChristian "Flake" Lorenz(keyboards).
They're German! And awesome!
#3: System of a Down
System of a Down, also known by theacronymSOAD and often shortened toSystem, is anArmenian-Americanrock bandfromSouthern California, formed in 1994. It consists ofSerj Tankian (lead vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar),Daron Malakian(guitar, vocals),Shavo Odadjian(bass, background vocals) andJohn Dolmayan(drums).
System of a Down was the main band that...really got me into music in general. They used to be my favorite band, but, while now #3, I still love them, and owe them a lot for getting me into so much other stuff.
Gorillazis a musical project created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. This project consists of the Gorillaz music itself and an extensivefictional universedepicting a "virtual band" of cartoon characters. This band is composed of four animated members:2D(lead vocalist, keyboard),Murdoc Niccals(bass guitar),Noodle(guitar, keyboard, and occasional vocals) andRussel Hobbs(drums and percussion).
It's not just their music that I love (which is REALLY good), but it's also the whole world and story surrounding the band and it's members. It's really awesome.
Also, as a heterosexual male, I must say 2D is a sexy beast.
And, for the #1, nemero uno, my favorite band of all time...
#1: Rise Against
Rise Againstis an Americanpunk rockband fromChicago,Illinois, formed in 1999. The band currently consists ofTim McIlrath(lead vocals,rhythm guitar),Zach Blair(lead guitar,backing vocals),Joe Principe(bass guitar,backing vocals) andBrandon Barnes(drums,percussion).
Yep, I bet NO one saw this coming.
Anyways, I love this band. A lot. I mean, a LOT! Their albums never get boring, I love and agree with pretty much all of their political and social views, and the music is damn good too! Endgame, their 6th album, comes out on the 15th. Can't wait.
So, there you all have it.
Laterz, Home Skillets!
EDIT: HTML decided to not do it's thing and put my words together incorrectly, so...I hope you can all still read what the paragraphs below the pics say.
Roberto found himself in a large, empty room, which had four pure-white walls, a floor and ceiling of the same color, and a tall, solitary metal pole, extending from the ceiling to the ground in the middle of the room. As he started to walk towards the pole, Roberto noticed that the floor and walls were made of some kind of soft material. He walked up to the metal pole, and stared at it.
"Well, this is…boring," He thought to himself. "Well, whoever yelled, he isn't in here."
Roberto turned to walk back to the door, but when he tried to open it, he noticed that he was locked-in.
"What?! No! Why can't anything GOOD happen to me?!" he screamed in frustration.
Not sure about what he should do, he walked back to the middle of the room and continued to examine the ordinary, silver pole. He had no idea what it was for, but something about it seemed strange.
"Welcome to your doom," a vague voice spoke into the room.
Before Roberto could even finish his sentence, the floor and ceiling suddenly started to move. First the ceiling, which sped upwards several stories at a speed so fast Roberto could barely see it moving. Then the floor, dropping at an equal speed, much faster than Roberto could fall, started to drop. To save himself from falling to his death, Roberto quickly grabbed onto the pole and stopped himself, while the floor continued to drop several stories, eventually hitting a floor of spikes that punctured the soft material the floor was made of.
Roberto now found himself hanging onto a pole in an extremely long vertical shaft, with no way out. The walls were still covered in the soft, white material, and the shaft was still brightly illuminated by an unknown light source. When he looked up, he could tell that, like the floor below him, the ceiling had come to a halt with spikes penetrating it. He saw a shadow appear out of nowhere at the top of the shaft, and start crawling on the walls towards him.
"Enjoying yourself?" a cocky, deep voice spoke from the mouth of the thing.
"Yeah. You know, besides the whole falling part. What are-"
Before Roberto could ask his question, the shadow jumped off the wall and fell to Roberto, sticking itself back to the wall directly in front of him. Roberto was speechless.
From the waist down was the body of a Black Widow spider; a shiny black-colored body with a red hourglass shape on it's back. However, where the head would normally be on a spider, instead was a human torso, basically a really weird spider-centaur. The skin on the torso-up was dark gray colored, possibly painted, with strange insignias and symbols on its chest in black. Its face had bright red eyes, and perfectly white teeth, which could be seen in its cocky smile. It had long, messy, poofy hair, the same color as its skin, and a single bright nose ring in it's left nostril.
"What were you going to ask?" the thing asked, still fiendishly smiling.
"Erm…What are you?" Roberto barely managed out.
"What I am isn't important," the thing spoke, "You may call me Roderick."
"Okay…" Roberto said hesitantly.
"So, shall we dance?" Roderick smiled.
Roderick reached behind his back and, seemingly out of nowhere, pulled out a staff, black as night, with a perfect black crystal on the top. He drew it back and, as he was about to strike, Roberto slid down the pole a couple of feet, managing to dodge the attack. As Roderick plunged his staff forward, the gem started to glow a bright white, brighter than the shaft they were both in, and a stream of light shot out from it, making a loud shocking noise as it blasted the wall behind where Roberto once was. Roberto quickly pulled out his weapon, Triptych, and shot a powerful blast of energy at Roderick, which he managed to barely dodge by jumping up a couple of feet, onto the opposite wall. Roderick looked down at Roberto.
"I think this is going to be a very fun dance," Roderick said, hugely grinning.
"That's something we both agree on," Roberto spoke back, with the same grin on his face that was on Roderick's.
Kate found herself in a mid-sized room, which had 2 sets of counters in it, both of which formed an "L" shape in the center of the room. There were fancy-looking cabinets and drawers lining the walls, with expensive-looking dishware, cutlery, and other kitchen necessities lining shelves on the top of the room. The walls, the floor, the ceiling, and everything else in the room was colored dark-black, as though the owners of the house had hired Death himself as the interior decorator. Dim, old-looking fluorescent lights on the ceiling flickered, barely illuminating the darkness that filled the room.
"What is this supposed to be?" Kate thought to herself, as she started to walk toward a cabinet sitting near a corner. She opened the cabinet and found jars of cherries, carrots, spinach, and other fresh produce. She turned around and noticed an unlit fireplace sitting hidden in another corner of the room with a grate melded above it.
"Oh, I'm in the kitchen. Awesome. Well, I don't think whoever shouted is in here so I think I'll just go."
She walked back to the door to leave, only to find out that she had been locked in, the doorknob refusing to turn, no matter how hard she tried.
"Why am I surprised? Damnit."
She walked back to the center of the room and sat on one of the counters, as she pondered what she should do next. From what she could tell, there were no other doors, no vents, and no windows. No way out except through the locked door.
"Alright, I'll just slam down the door. How tough can it be?"
She put her back to the wall opposite the one with the door, and hunched her back, her face filled with the rage that was usually only on her face when she was arguing with Victor. She ran as fast as she could, with her right shoulder in front of the rest of her body, towards the door, slamming into it, and falling back hard onto the cold ground.
"What do you think your trying to do?" a cold voice asked from behind her.
"What the Hell?!" Kate yelled, as she turned around only to see nothing.
"What? Do you not see me?" the voice asked, almost chuckling.
"Shut up," Kate spoke back, looking around the room for the source of the voice.
Out of nowhere, a cockroach the size of a hand fell onto Kate's face, causing her to loudly shriek and swat it off her face, following up by stomping on it. Still clearly disgusted, she looked up to the ceiling to find a horrible sight: A giant mass of bugs was swarming and crawling around, as each individual one fell to the ground into another pile. Kate, who now had her back against the door, stifled another shriek as the pile of bugs, that had formed in the center of the two sets of counters, started to rise up from the ground, taking the form of a humanoid-thing. Two eyeholes, both of which glowed red, had formed on its face, and it raised both of its arms and put them behind its head in a relaxed pose.
"Do you see me now?" the thing asked.
"Oh…I'm gonna be sick," she replied.
"My name is Keller. It's a pleasure," Keller said, bowing with one arm on his stomach, the other behind his back.
"The pleasure is definitely all yours," Kate said back, trying to hold back a grin that read "Proud to be a Bastard".
Keller, whose eyes quickly turned angry at Kate's remark, launched his arm at her. It stretched from his body towards her at a barely-seeable speed, and she barely managed to get out of the way before it slammed through the wall near the door. She quickly took out her spear, Passion, and stabbed it deep into the arm, as she could hear and feel bugs being smashed by the weapon. She pulled it out, and Keller pulled his arm back towards him, obviously not at all affected by Kate's attack.
"And to think, I was going to make your death quick and painless. Oh well, you get what you deserve," Keller said, his eyes angry.
"And to think, I'm probably the only one having to fight a guy made of BUGS," Kate thought to herself.
Aaron, after rushing through his door as fast as he could, ended up falling into a deep pit, about 20 feet deep. He landed on a large pile of straw, which saved him from being killed by the impact, and stood up, still woozy from the fall.
"Ow…I wish I hadn't done that," he complained to himself, as he brushed stray pieces of straw off his orange shirt.
"No! Please! Don't leave! Answer me!"
Aaron was silent for a moment, unsure if he had heard correctly. Maybe he was going crazy? The voice he heard was completely different from the one he had heard earlier, which was a man's voice. This was the voice of a woman.
That time, Aaron was sure he heard something. He drew his katana-like sword, Infinity, and held it above his head as he rushed through the darkness of the area he was in to the voice. Eventually he ran up to a woman standing by herself, with her back turned to him. She turned around to Aaron, and had a look of fear on her face upon seeing his sword drawn.
"Don't be afraid, I'm a friend," Aaron softly spoke to her, as he put his weapon away, and her face turned to a look of relief and happiness.
The woman was tall, about 18 years old, and very pretty. She had long, brown hair, which hung down to about the middle of her back, and she was wearing an open pink hooded jacket, which an equally pink T-Shirt on underneath. She was also wearing normal fitting blue jeans, purple converse shoes, and a silver necklace around her neck. Her skin was well tanned, and she had very cheerful and smiling eyes, that hinted that she was probably by-default happy.
"What's your name?" Aaron asked her.
"My name is Courtney. What's yours?" she answered, her face smiling.
"My name is Aaron. I'm guessing you're a Hero?"
"Oh, yeah, apparently. A voice was telling me about how some group of Heroes like myself would come and explain more. Are you the only one?"
"No, I'm just the only person that checked this room when we split up earlier."
"Oh. Well, I'm glad you're here to help me out. Why did you all split up?"
Aaron explained everything that had happened to him and his friends. What they had told him had happened to them, and what he had gone through on the train. And why they had all separated.
"So you're new to this too?" Courtney asked.
"Yeah, I'm still kinda convinced I'm dreaming. Though I usually can't feel pain in dreams. I can here though, trust me," he said, smiling to show that he was kidding. Sorta.
"And I'm apparently not the only Hero here?" she asked, receiving a "yes" nod from Aaron.
"So when can I summon my Hero?"
"I'm not sure exactly how, but you'll just…know. Something inside you will tell you to shout 'I need a Hero, to save me now!' It also apparently happens whenever somebody's about to get killed."
"That sounds terrible," she said, frowning.
"Alright then!" Courtney started to say, her smile back on her face. "Let's get out of here and find our friends!"
"I'm not sure how to get out of here, though…" Aaron said.
"Don't worry, if there's a way in, there's got to be a way out. C'mon, let's search around."
As they started to search for an exit, Aaron finally started to get a bearing on his surroundings. He was in a dark, apparently very large room. There were wooden beams every couple of feet supporting the ceiling. The ceiling, floor, and walls were all made from old cobblestone and rock, with cobwebs everywhere. Torches dotted the walls, but they only made a very small area of light, so if you weren't right next to them, all you could see was darkness, making it very hard to not walk into any of the beams.
"Ugh, it's too dark, I can't see anything in here," Aaron yelled.
"Yeah, but what else can we do?" Courtney replied.
"You could die."
Aaron and Courtney both stifled shrieks, and turned to see a figure barely visible in the light of a torch in front of them.
He was a tall, tanned man, with long black hair that was put into a ponytail, and a thick beard. He was shirtless, showing off his very large and toned muscles, and was wearing steel greaves on the lower half of his body, with no shoes or boots. He had what looked like a potato sack in his left hand, sagging onto the floor.
"W-Who are you?!" Courtney and Aaron both yelled in unison.
"My name is Gregory, not that it matters. You're both about to die anyways," he responded, his voice tough and deep, but at the same cold as ice.
"What?! Why?!" Courtney yelled.
"You don't need to know."
Gregory reached into his bag and pulled out a couple of pebble-shaped things and threw them onto the ground. Aaron and Courtney looked at each other in confusion, before turning back to the items.
"What are these supposed to be?" Aaron asked, not taking his eyes off the objects.
"Your about to find out," Gregory answered.
Gregory lifted up his left leg and slammed his foot on the ground, making the room shake and dust fall from the ceiling. Suddenly, the objects exploded with enough force to send Aaron and Courtney flying into a wall a couple of yards away. The two Heroes, still dazed and confused from the big boom, looked up to see 5 blue figures standing in front of Gregory.
The figures were in the shape of humans, with two arms, two legs, a head, and a torso. However, they had no faces, no clothes, no features. Just bodies. Their bodies were a light blue, and didn't appear to be solid, but looked more like they were made of electricity. Faded, static, and almost see-through.
"Kill them," Gregory commanded, as Aaron and Courtney stumbled onto their feet.
The blue figures started to walk towards the Heroes. Aaron pulled out Infinity and shouted "Saku!" as he swung his sword, creating a strange black-colored beam that shot out like a laser and hit one of the figures, causing it to disappear into thin air.
"Wow, nice!" Courtney yelled, smiling.
"You think it's going to be that easy?" Gregory asked, almost chuckling.
He pulled out another two stones, dropped them on the ground, and stomped, causing them to explode into more blue figures. Bringing the total up to six.
"Wha-NO!" Aaron yelled, anger crippling his voice.
"This shouldn't be hard," Gregory softly said to himself, smirking.
Not much to say this chapter, I've just prepared battles for Roberto, Kate, Aaron, and our newcomer Courtney (who, just incase you didn't know, is based on Courtney817). I should have Darkman, Axis, and Jon's battles started in the next chapter, and then I can get to some better stuff.
So, wus up, Home Skillets? 8)
How are you all?
Sooooo...another pointless blog that most of you don't want to read. That is what this is.
So, you all remember that thing I told you about right? The thing? The thing on the 25th? Of February? The day you shower me with gifts?
It's on Friday. 8)
I turn 16, which I imagined for a long time would be that happy day when I get my drivers license. Then, about 4 months ago, my state says "Hey! You know what a good idea is?! We should make it to where people have to keep their permit for a FULL year before they can get their intermediate license! They'll like that, right?! That won't piss them off, RIGHT?! ".
So, since I only got my permit about 2 weeks ago, I will be ALMOST 17 before I can get my license. ****!
Oh well, at least I'm getting some more awesome stuff. Like that Alienware laptop that I'm wanting to get. 8)
And that my Dad told me won't get here until the middle of next week.
My friend Hunter plans to give me $20 so I can afford Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tomorrow, so I suppose that's good. But still...
*AND* I have a package from my grandmother (please look to my Thanksgiving blog that I posted a couple of months ago) sitting in the post office right now.
And my Mom (who lives far away, and who I don't get to see very often) is coming to visit me for my birthday. And she's coming on Thursday, so I get Thursday and Friday out of school. 8)
So, that means I won't be on GS this weekend. So the unions I'm in needn't worry about me.
So, I think it will be good.
If any of you have any gifts to give me, I *WILL* take them! Not kidding!
...Oh, one more thing: Absolutely *NEVER* search "Sexy Birthday" on Google Images without safe search on.
My exact reaction, Ezio. My exact reaction.
So, after putting it off for MONTHS, I've finally gotten around to play Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
This game is...like all of the fun from the second game, combined with all the stupid bull**** from the first game.
Or maybe it's just because I suck at games where it's easy to fall off of stuff. Meh, whatever.
I'm still enjoying it though. I've gotten REALLY into training my Assassin Recruits. All day, I've been assigning them missions to do, going to get on the computer or watch T.V. or etc., going back the the game when they're done, giving them more stuff to do, and repeating. It's fun. 8)
Although I'm NEVER attempting to get 100% Synchronization on a lot of these memories! Because that's where the stupid bull**** I mentioned comes into play.
I've also been playing Sly 2: Band of Thieves, which I'm pretty close to beating. I guess I'll have both of these games done soon enough.
So...I guess I can also mention I'm in a band now.
I play guitar (and I'm also being forced to frickin' sing! ), and my other two friends and bandmates play Bass and Drums.
....So, yeah. There you go.
Trust me when I say: This doesn't work for some reason.
So, this is all. 8)
Laterz, Home Skillets!
-Out-Of-Ammo, the guy that commands you to bow before his epic cuteness.
So, yeah, THIS is finished!
It took me a while to write because I couldn't come up with a good idea for the next room.
But, I eventually did, so...yeah.
As Victor, Axis, Kate, Roberto, Darkman, Aaron, and Jon all walked through the door, it quickly shut and disappeared behind them, leaving them in an, as always, foggy area. They could see nothing, but still made their way forward, hoping to find some kind of clue as to what was going to happen, or where they were.
"Alright, I don't feel anything moving this time, so I guess that's good," Aaron said.
"I still don't think we can be sure of how safe this place is," Darkman said back.
"C'mon!" Roberto yelled. "There's nothing to worry about, we're invinci-"
Roberto was interrupted by the sound of his skull bashing against the hard floor.
"Ow, son of a…what the hell did I just trip on?"
"Uhhh, are you okay, Roberto?" Victor asked, with worry in his voice.
"Yeah, I've been stabbed and shot at since coming here. I can deal," Roberto answered.
"Really?! You're not gonna' answer me?!"
The young voice echoed through the ears of the 7 young Heroes, as the fog cleared, revealing that they were in a large, hall-like area, with several doors around them.
To be clearer, it was the front hall of a big, villa-like house. There were two sets of stairs, that both curved up towards a balcony above the room, which had decorative picture frames, busts, and other things on it. Between the two sets of stairs was a giant set of double doors, with strange, cryptic-looking symbols and figures decorating it's surface. The room was faintly lit by candles lining the walls, and there were 3 or 4 stacks of boxes sitting in the middle of the room, with one stack tipped over, revealing what Roberto had tripped on. There were also 3 doors lining each wall next to their respective staircase, with the last wall, which was behind the 7 Heroes, was completely empty, probably due to being where the door to Granaci was located.
"Where did that yell come from?!" Kate yelled.
"I don't know! Everyone, take a door on this floor! We'll find out!" Victor ordered.
"Uhhh…excuse me?" Axis asked, with one eyebrow raised.
"Or…whatever," Victor answered.
"That's what I thought."
"Alright!" Victor yelled. "I'll take the big double-doors! The rest of you choose a door on either wall and go in it! We'll find whoever just yelled!"
Victor, with Powerhouse drawn, ran up to the huge double doors, and struggled to get the giant mass of wood to move. He ran through, and had and had the same amount of trouble pulling it closed behind him. Roberto took the door closest to the left staircase, Axis took the middle door on the right wall, Kate took the middle door on the left wall, Aaron took the furthest door down on the left wall, Darkman took the door furthest down on the right wall, and Jon took the door closest to the right staircase.
They were all on their own.
"Alright, what's in here…" Victor thought to himself, as he found himself in a large room.
The room had strange looking statues of things he had never seen nor heard of siding all of the walls. There were pictures of disturbing scenery, such as fire ravaging villages and their inhabitants, iron maidens being used to execute poor prisoners, women and children being forced off of cliffs by strange horned monsters, etc. layering the walls, and, in the middle of the room, was a slab of pure marble, with disturbing spiked shackles hanging from it on each side.
"Wow, this place is…the wrong door to go through. I should've sent Kate in here. I bet she's in, like, the kitchen. Damn psycho," Victor said aloud, walking around the room, viewing the imagery.
"Who's Kate?" a voice said to Victor, as it's owner walked out from behind one of the statues.
"Gah! Who're you?"
"My names…well, call me Alias. I was told I was going to be visited by some Heroes, like me…are you one of them?"
"Oh, yeah, and I'm guessing you were the voice we heard earlier?"
"Ah, I see. Well, let's get out of here and get back to the others."
"Wait," Alias started to ask, "I'm still confused on what's happening here. My…inner Hero didn't fill me in on much."
Victor quickly described all of the events that had happened to him and his friends since ending up in Granaci. All of their battles, Heroes, and victories so far.
"Alright, so all I have to do to summon my inner Hero is yell-I need a Hero, to save me now?" Alias asked.
"Yeah, but you have to wait until it's necessary. You can't just stand up, yell, and summon it," Victor answered.
"When is it considered necessary?"
"It just…will be. You can feel it. Trust me, you'll know."
"Well, alright," Alias started to say, "let's get back to the others!"
"Agreed. This place gives me the creeps."
Alias had long, blonde, spiky hair, which pointed out from underneath his backwards red baseball cap. He wore a red T-Shirt, which was covered in white letters that couldn't be read due to his blue denim overalls mostly covering them up. To go with his shirt and overalls, he had on blue sneakers, which appeared to be the kind that have a wheel in the heels, so the person can just roll around. His face was happy, averagely colored, and adorned with light freckles.
Victor and Alias walked towards the giant doors and, once to them, attempted to open them. However, no matter how hard they both tried, the doorknob would not turn. They had somehow been locked in.
"Uh, this can't be good," Alias said.
"Yeah, chances are we're both about to die," Victor angrily (and sarcastically) said back.
"Where do the two of you think YOU'RE going?!"
The two Heroes turned around to the scary, screechy voice. The voice came from a floating dark figure, wearing a black cloak and silver chains around his ankles.
Victor drew his weapon, Alias put his fists up, and they both charged at the figure. The figure quickly raised its long arm towards the two boys, which revealed it to be nothing but bone. No skin, no muscles, just bone. The two Heroes quickly started to levitate in the air, and then were slammed into a wall, causing some pictures to fall off the wall, and crash on the floor. Victor dropped Powerhouse onto the ground, and reached for his throat, which was closing up more and more with each passing second.
"So…what do we do now?" Alias struggled to ask.
"That's…a question I don't have the answer for yet," Victor answered.
So, to the 4 of you that actually read this: There you go.
And Alias is based off of Psychikos, just so you all know.
And...I guess this blog is over.
This may be the most amazing thing I've ever posted.
Rise Against's first single from their new album, "Endgame", which comes out in...March, I think.
Ahhh...this is going to be a great album.
*ahem*, Wut Up, Home Skillets? 8)
I...really need to start planning what write in my blogs before I actually WRITE them.
I recently got Dead Space 2!
Even though it's not even February yet, Dead Space 2 may already be my GOTY. Seriously, it's just THAT good.
I got the collector's edition, which has the replica plasma cutter (which I almost broke in a KFC drive-through. Don't ask...), a soundtrack CD (which is AMAZING), a art...card (it was supposed to be a book, but...it isn't. ), and, of course, the AMAZING game!
And a giant box. 8)
So, yeah, those of you in unions: expect me to talk about how much I love this game. Or not. I don't care.
While I'm posting pics...
Here is a pic of my decent-sized game collection. I'm proud of it. 8)
....And I haven't beaten about 70% of these games.
Hell, I haven't *played* about 30%.
But, yeah, you've now wasted a second of your life looking at that pic and another 5 reading the text below it. Congratulations.
I bought Ghost Trick recently as well, but haven't played it much since DS2 came out.
I've been suffering from a bit of writer's-block lately. I can't think of *anything* to write for Hero what-so-ever, and some of my other stories are suffering as well.
Couple that with the fact that, lately I've been learning to draw, but I *SUCK* at it beyond-comparison, and you've got one sad, emo-haired Gamespot user.
I shall get over it eventually, though.
So, I have...something coming up next month...you know, my birthday...and stuff.
It's February 25th, so if anybody wishes to send me gifts, feel free to. 8)
I already know what I'll be getting, and that would be: An $1800 laptop.
The keyboard DOES glow, Aidan. Just saying.
...Ignore the disturbing clown on it's screen please.
So, yeah, this beast is going to be awesome. I can't wait for my birthday!
I'm sure I'll be getting some other stuff as well, so...next month will be epic. 8)
Due to having nothing better to say, I shall leave you all with LOLcats.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Ha, go ahead! Thanks to eBay, my credit score is DESTROYED!
Laterz, Home Skillets!
-Out-Of-Ammo, the -2nd wonder of the world. 8)
Nothing. Absolutely Nothing.
...No, that had NO point what-so-ever.
Anyways, greetings, Home Skillets!
I'm writing this blog due to not writing one in a while, and also due to being extremely bored.
The last blog i posted was before Christmas, where I said I wouldn't be on for a while due to visiting my mother.
Yeah, I got back WEEKS ago, just so you all know. I just didn't bother to post a blog about it.
I doubt anybody cares, anyways.
I just got THIS!
Seriously, I got it out of *no*where.
I think JodyR decided to hire some new talent, since a couple of my other friends got Top 500 and Top 100 emblems too.
I was surprised, considering I haven't written a review in *months*.
And also since I always thought of my reviews as being pretty sucky.
Anyways, inspired, I decided to spend an hour writing a Mass Effect Review yesterday.
It's *MUCH* better than my other reviews, and I'm proud of it if I do say so myself. 8)
I have absolutely *NO* resolutions this year!
Seriously: None. 8)
I don't ever have any anyways, plus, I would forget about it before January was even over.
Since I haven't yet, I guess I should list the stuff that I got for Christmas too:
-A Black Peavy Raptor Guitar, that I named Beatrice.
Here is a pic of Beatrice's sexiness. 8)
(I wanted to put this in a spoiler to save room, BTW, but noooo, HTML had to be a little b****! )
Also seeable in this pic: A couple of boxes, a lot of wires, an ugly-as-f*** wall, and an even uglier floor.
Also, while I'm at it, I may as well post a pic of my awesome Ninja Kitten Taffy. 8)
Don't let her cuteness fool you though: She is one fast, deadly, killing machine!
...Why does my Dad's desk look so dirty in this photo!? (Don't comment, Nadia! )
Anyways, where was I...
-An Xbox 360 Slim, which I'm enjoying throughly.
-A $50 Gamestop Gift Card, which I promptly blew on games.
-A $100 Visa Gift Card, which I promptly blew on Amazon.
-A shirt. 8)
-A Zebra-Print Snuggie (which is SEXY, too! )
-A pair of lounging pants.
...Now that I think about it, why is it called a pair?
I mean, it's a single item, not two.
Speaking of which, why the Hell is a pair of glasses called a pair!?!
-About $200 cash, which I promptly blew at Gamestop and a local bookstore. 8)
-And...something else, which I can't seem to remember.
Anyways, my Christmas was awesome. 8)
I just beat God of War 3!
It's easily great. 8) The gameplay, the puzzles, the story...so awesome. 8)
The ending is both one of the best things I've ever seen, and one of the worst things I've ever seen.
Although I don't like how it sorta ended on a Cliff Hanger.
Since I've been pretty active there recently, I guess I should go ahead and post my DeviantArt account too.
So, there. 8)
I'm...running out of stuff to say. I wish I were more interesting of a person!
I've been writing some new stuff lately, which I plan on posting on DevArt.
What I'm writing:
Outnumbered-This was originally my NaNoWriMo competition story, but I never finished, so I've decided to work on it as a good, full-fledged story. So far I've already uploaded the first few chapters, so you can check those out if you like.
I can't stop looking at it! It's so awesome! Thank you so much, my frenemy!
Perfection (working title)-I started writing this due to a friend (can't remember who) on here telling me that I should write something about the whole "Ninja Kitten" thing my union's been about. So, I am. And Taffy (the above adorable, lethal Ninja Kitten Commander) is the main character. 8) It should be noted that this story is Non-Fiction.
The Great Battle of Spork and Shovel-This is a One-Shot I decided to start writing, featuring Sirra and I in an epic battle of...well, Spork and Shovel. It's almost complete, so I should have it up on DevArt soon.
And so the great battle of Spork and Shovel begins!
I'm sure I've heard Slyfur say something similar...
*is still proud of his Top 500 emblem* 8)
Well, I guess that's it.
Laterz, Home Skillets!
And I Reach Out to the truth,
With, Something, Something something...
+5 sexy points if you know what song that's from, and what game that song is from. 8)
Anyways, what's up, My Home Skillets!?
I haven't written an actual blog in a while, so...yeah, I thought I'd do that.
So...let us begin?
I've been gaming a bit recently. I've beaten Assassin's Creed 1 and 2 (and now I need Brotherhood ), Mirror's Edge, the first Sly Cooper game (I needed to get around to playing the trilogy that I've owned for a year now anyway ), and...I know I've beaten something else, but I can't remember what it is.
Bah, anyways, I started a new playthrough of Persona 4 to keep me quelled (what an awesome word 8)) until teh Holidays come and I buy more stuff.
What will you all be doing this Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Festival of Lights/WTF ever else there is this holiday season!?!
I shall be traveling to my mother's for the holidays. It's in North Carolina, which has an unbelievable amount of snow there, so I will definitely be throwing snowballs at people this year. 8)
I also doubt I will be able to see below my knees for the next week because of the snow.
Anyway, she doesn't have a computer, so I won't be posting until I get back, which will be at the end of next week.
I'm leaving on Thursday, so most of you (and sirra) can still enjoy the sexiness of my presence until...the day after tomorrow.
Also, I should mention that I have finally gotten my Saturn back...for the 3rd time in a row.
It. Actually. WORKS! IT WORKS! I'VE BEEN WORKING TOWARDS ALL THIS FOR 7 MONTHS NOW, AND I FINALLY HAVE A PROPERLY WORKING REGION SWITCH INSTALLED!!!!!!
So, now I have been able to enjoy games like Virtua Fighter 2 and Dead or Alive on the same system.
I was so happy when I got it that I wanted to cry from the happiness!
Now...to buy some new games for it....
How much is Panzer Dragoon Saga again?
Disembodied voice: Around $300.
...Really? Bah, I'll buy it eventually.
No. No you cannot.
Or so they say.
Laterz, Home Skillets!
Wassup, Home Skillets!
I promised the second part, so...here's the second part.
"What?", Axis and Victor both asked in unison.
"That gun…it was given to me when I joined the Outlaws of the End. Nixon and Jin both treated me as family…the 3 of us were inseparable. We all understood each other's suffering, the sadness of not remembering anything from our pasts…we decided to make our gang something similar to Robin Hood…"
"You mean, stealing from the rich, giving to the poor?", Axis asked.
"Yeah…something like that," she answered, "But not exactly. We stole from anyone that had anything to give, really, but we still gave it to people who were like us, lost in a big world, with nowhere to go, and nothing to do but live. But who weren't lucky enough to have friends to turn to, like Jin, Nixon, and I were. I'm sure they wanted to die in that state, but we wanted to give them some kind of reason to live. Victor…you and I aren't that different…"
"And how's that?", Victor asked, "I don't do anything like that. I fight to live and continue on with my life, that's that."
"No, you fight to have a reason to live," Silva responded, "Your saving the world from a threat that you know barely anything about, not only because you want to live, but because you want others to as well."
"And not just you. Axis, Kate, Darkman, Roberto, Aaron, Jon…you and the others want to save the world because it makes you feel alive. Hell, it's in your blood."
"And here the 3 of us are, fighting for our own selfishness…this isn't what we set out to do. This isn't what we want, it's more what we hate and fight against. We should be allies, but we aren't."
"…And what are you trying to say, exactly?", Axis asked.
"…I want to help someone like us once more…I guess I'm not going to get to remember my past after all, why I look like this, why I was shot…but I still couldn't be happier with this decision."
Silva, who had her back turned towards the edge of the cart, formed a large smile, and tears started to fall from her eyes. She started to take steps backwards.
"Wait! You can't be doing what I think your doing!", Victor yelled, catching the attention of everyone on the cart.
"…I'm afraid I am, kid. Don't die…live."
Silva stepped back off the edge, and started to fall towards the hard, fast moving ground below. However, she was caught by something: A tan hand, wearing fingerless gloves.
"Don't do this, Silva!", Nixon yelled to her as he held onto her hand.
Everyone else-Jin, along with all 7 of the current Heroes-watched in depressing silence.
"Why should I continue on? I can't do this just to get my memories back, it's wrong. It's what we are dedicated against."
"I don't care! With our memories, we can remember! We can think of our families, our friends…we can see them again! We can resume our lives, and quit stealing and killing! Haven't we always wanted that!?!"
"Please, Nixon. You know as well as I do that we were born for this kind of life. I doubt any of our former family and friends-if we even had any-would want to see us. We give the things we steal to the only people lower than us, to make them happy. That was our reason to live. We barely ever killed anyone-and whenever we did, it was because they were corrupt or psychotic. We have been doing good all our lives, even if we knew they wouldn't last near as long this way. I can't believe I just started to realize this though…we've basically given our lives to bringing joy to others that can't get it themselves. That's given us our own reasons to live. And now our lives are at an end. I want to give my life doing good…I couldn't be happier this way."
"Silva…please…don't do this," Nixon pleaded, with tears running out of his eyes.
"No! I won't let go!"
"It's too bad you don't have much of a choice…"
Silva lifted the knife she had been holding in her hand the entire time up above her head. A melancholic happiness formed in her teary eyes, while pure terror formed in Nixon's. She plunged the knife into Nixon's hand, releasing a loud scream from his mouth. He tried as hard as he could, but couldn't hold Silva any longer. He dropped her, staring into her happy face as she fell onto the ground below, landing with a loud "BANG" before disintegrating into blue ash.
There was nothing but silence now.
"N…no…she couldn't have…this can't happen…"
Nixon was still and quiet, mumbling to himself. Jin walked to him, his eyes teary as well, and got down next to his friend, patting him on the shoulder.
Nixon screamed at the top of his lungs, slamming the ground with his fists in pure frustration and anger. The Heroes watched in silence, feeling a terrible emotion of sadness over them.
"My friend…I think she was right," Jin spoke to his crying friend.
"W-What!?!", Nixon sobbed in anger, "You can't be serious!?!"
"…But I am. We've always donated our loot to feel the greatness and proudness of the ecstatic and happy look on the faces of those we've helped. The way they thanked us and laughed as though we were actually helping them…that's what the Outlaws of the End was formed for. We formed it to do, more-or-less, good. And that's not what we're doing…"
Jin held his shotgun in his hands, and turned it to look at it's symbol.
"…But that's not what we're doing right now, my friend. We're trying to kill innocent kids that are trying to save the world, simply because of our own selfish desires…that's not what the Outlaws of the End are."
Jin raised his weapon above his head, and threw it off the cart, onto the ground. He then stood up next to his friend.
"We can't be doing things like this if we want to be happy."
"But…Jin," Nixon started to say, as he stood up next to his friend, "We've always wanted to get our memories back. It's that bond that the 3 of us shared that kept us together, inseparable…I loved Silva, despite what she looked like. And I'll never be able to tell her that…"
Nixon looked down at the ground.
"But…your right…we're being quite hypocritical at the moment, aren't we?"
Nixon looked back up at his friend.
"So, what can we do to stop this?"
Jin and Nixon, after staring at each other for a moment, both shook their heads in unison, agreeing on something. They grabbed each other's shoulders, and put their backs to the edge of the cart, facing towards the Heroes.
"…Don't abandon your values and what you fight for," both men started to say to the Heroes, "And don't let our sacrifices be in vain. Live. Don't let the lies told to you by the villain get to you"
They both then started to tilt backwards, and fall of the cart. Victor, Axis, Darkman, Kate, Roberto, Aaron, and Jon all looked shocked, and ran towards to edge. By the time they got there, they looked down, only to see the two men's' final moments before hitting the ground, both dissolving into neon-blue ash.
Everyone stared at each other, all speechless. Darkman broke the silence.
"Uh, hey, aren't we forgetting something!?", he yelled, pointed towards the tracks.
Everyone looked at where Darkman pointed, seeing how close they were to falling off the cliff, into the river below.
"Oh crap!", Roberto yelled, "Run! The door should be there now!"
Everyone ran towards the hatch on the cart, hurriedly climbing down, one-by-one, into the cart below. Roberto had been correct, and the pitch-black door had reappeared and was open, showing the hallway of Granaci beyond. The train finally hit the edge of the cliff, and started to tilt vertically.
"Jump!", Victor yelled to everyone.
Everyone listened, and jumped into the door. Victor, Axis, Kate, Darkman, Aaron, and Jon all managed to make it, but Roberto's jump was a little short. The train was now fully tilted and free-falling, and Roberto started to fall with it.
"Hang on, Roberto!", Jon yelled, as he kicked his chain weapon into the door way, as it hit the metal right next to Roberto's head.
Roberto quickly grabbed onto the chain, and Jon, along with assistance of Darkman and Axis, pulled Roberto up into the hallway, and Roberto, who was lying on the ground gasping for air, slammed the door shut with his foot just as the train started to crash into the river.
"…Is everyone okay?", Darkman asked, gasping.
Everyone responded with a "Yes".
"…They were…they didn't deserve that," Kate said, as everyone's attention went to her.
"They were human," she continued, "They had lives that they wanted to live, and that were cut short because of that bastard…"
There was, once again, silence.
"…Good Job, everyone," a familiar voice spoke behind them.
Everyone looked to see Ptahhotep and Gini, both sorta "floating" in front of them.
"That was REALLY close!", Gini yelled in happiness.
"But, still…The Outlaws of the End…they didn't deserve to die," Aaron said.
"Yes, but they made a very noble sacrifice. The best thing to do is make sure they didn't die in vain, and do what their dieing wish was for you to do: Live. Both you, and the world," Ptahhotep reassured everyone.
"So," Gini started to say, "Let's unlock the next door for you!"
He and Ptahhotep raised their hands towards a door about 4 doors down, on the opposite wall of the hall. The door unlocked, and opened.
"Rest and heal," Ptahhotep started to say, "Then carry on."
"Of course," Victor said.
Both Heroes disappeared into thin air, as the 7 younger Heroes walked into the next open door to face their next challenge.
There we go!
So, yeah, instead of an epic ending, I decided to go for a teary one. I wanted to see what I could do, and how I could fit it in there.
...Also, i got finished watching Kanon about 10 minutes before writing the ending, and that's a *really* sad anime, so...that gave me the idea.
Anyways, if you didn't like this chapter, don't worry. I plan to write my next chapters in a similar action-way as the last ones.
And here's a LOLcat, for your viewing pleasure. 8)
...And because I know SOME OF YOU can't read a book without pictures!
You know who you are.
Laterz, Home Skillets!
Wow...this took forever to finish.
But, better late than never, right? RIGHT!?!
Anyways, I decided to make this chapter turn into something a bit...different than what most of you were probably expecting. 8)
I like it.
Here you all are. 8)
Oh, and once again, the chapter is going over the allowed blog limit, so I will have to seperate this into 2 parts.
I'll post the second half tomorrow.
"Th-Th-There's another here!? Your joking!?!", Silva yelled, shocked.
The person was now standing up straight at the end of the cart, slowly walking toward and past Darkman, Kate, Aaron, and Roberto, and finally standing a couple of feet away from Victor, Axis, and The Outlaws of the End, who were all still staring in shock.
He was male, with short, blonde hair, and a big, white grin showing on his face. He wore a white T-Shirt, a half-zipped up black jacket, and average fitting blue jeans. His skin was slightly pale, and his shoes were black and white, athletic-looking sneakers.
A figure started to appear from the light above his head.
"I am Gini, the Hero of Diversity," a high-pitched, clear voice spoke, "I have come to save a life from the brinks of death."
Gini looked…unique, to say the least. He wore a tacky and strange disco-ish suit that looked like it came out of the 70's. It was adorned in many colors, which were arranged in a rainbow pattern, and would go from bright colors like Blue, Green, and Orange, to dark, depressing colors like Black, White, and Gray at random, and almost seemed to change colors with each passing second. He wore a plain white dress shirt underneath the jacket, and had a purple tie to go with the outfit. He was tan, with big, oval-shaped eyes, and a big grin on his face, similar to the guy that had summoned him. His hair was black, and arranged into a messy dread-lock styie He also wore shining bracelets on his wrists, that looked as gaudy and unfitting as his suit.
"I grant the newer Hero, Jon, the ability to use the Saku of Diversity, and the weapon I fought with in the Great War long ago, Difference."
Difference wasn't near as crazy or strange looking as it's former owner. It was a long, gray colored chain, about 10 feet long, and had a huge spike on the end, colored the same as the chain it was attached to. The spike had 3 stripes going around the tip, which were adorned with beautiful colored gems, probably to add a little zaniness to it's otherwise boring look.
"You have the power to overcome any battle if you try hard enough. Never give up hope, and never accept death without a proper fight," the Hero said as he faded into the light, and disappeared.
Nixon was still staring up in the air where the Hero had appeared, probably still shocked from the sudden intervention of another Hero.
"…Awesome!", the Hero said as he started to whip around his chain in a circular pattern.
"Wha-!? No, damnit!", Nixon yelled.
Nixon, who had quickly come back to reality, quickly re-aimed his revolver at Axis, and cocked the weapon to shoot. But, just as he was about to take his shot, it was too late. Jon, in the blink of any eye, kicked the spike of the chain with his foot in the direction of the Outlaw, and smacked his gun out of his hand, onto the fast-moving ground below.
"Hi, I'm Jon!", he said as he looked to his left, towards Victor.
"…Wow, your timing sucks" he responded.
"You little…", Nixon started to insult Jon. However, he quickly stopped mid-sentence, turned around, and started to head toward the end of the cart he was on, opposite the one Jon and the other Heroes were standing on.
"Hey," Jon started to yell to Victor, "Shouldn't you be getting her to safety right now?"
"What?", he yelled back, and looked down at the unconscious Axis still dangling below. "Yeah, yeah, I know!"
Victor started to use every ounce of his strength to pull Axis up onto the cart. However, he had forgotten that Silva and Jin were still both standing on the opposite cart.
"W…What should we do?", Silva asked her partner.
"We don't fight without Nixon. He is our leader, and gives us reason to fight. We don't have the time to deal with these children right now. Let's follow Nixon, it's not like they can go anywhere," Jin responded.
"…Your lucky," Silva yelled to Victor and Jon, as she and Jin both turned and started to run after Nixon, who had already entered the hatch at the end of his cart, into the area where the Heroes had originally entered the area."
Jon, with an angry look on his face, started to jump over to the next cart, but was held back by Darkman and Kate.
"Don't worry about them," Kate started, "They aren't going anywhere either. Both us, AND them, are trapped in here until someone wins."
"Yeah, alright, I want to jump over anyways though!", Jon yelled back.
"What? A man can't enjoy jumping from one cart to another on a moving train!?!"
"Erm…I guess he ca-!"
"And seriously, when do you ever get to do this!?!"
"Good point!", Kate responded, readying to join cheesy in his pointless jump.
"Uh, you DO realize one of our friends has been shot, correct?", Darkman asked the two, with his hand on his face.
Roberto and Aaron helped Victor pull Axis back up onto the cart, and carried her to the hatch, being sure not to drop her while getting her through the hatch, into the cart. They lied her down in the back, and had Darkman look her over.
"So, she's not…like, dead or anything, right?", Aaron asked, with a sense of worrieness in his voice.
"No, not yet," Darkman started to answer, "She was shot through the spine, cutting through the vertebrae, spinal chord, and some other major organs, but the bleeding is mostly internal, which makes for a slower death."
"Well that sounds…dreadful," Victor said. "Can you heal her?"
"Yes, I can. But it will take a while to reconstruct and repair everything that was damaged, so I'll need a bit of time before she's better."
"Wait," Roberto started to ask Darkman, "Reconstruct? How exactly do those healing powers of yours work?"
"Well, Roberto, when I use my power of Saku, I lose my current state of mind, and start seeing everything in vivid detail. I see every mutation, every blemish, every injury…everything abnormal in any given area of the body. I can then literally start to construct material out of thin air, and repair the abnormality of the area with said material. However, I can only do one thing at a time. Victor's wound seemed much worse, but that was only because the location of the wound was in his throat, which only has skin, muscle, nerves, and bone to worry about. All four of those are very easy to construct and repair, so I didn't take much time. However, Axis has many different types of material in her body damaged from that bullet, so I will need to take longer to repair everything."
"…I'm sleepy now," Roberto jokingly responded.
"Hey, you asked."
Darkman entered into his power, and started to heal Axis, as the others watched for a couple of seconds, and quickly lost interest. Victor and Roberto walked up to Jon, obviously wanting to ask him something by the looks on their faces.
"So, your name's Jon, right?", Victor asked.
"Yep. Since I was born! And there's no stupid H in there either, making it much more fun to write," Jon responded, looking strangely proud of himself."
"Awesome, so why the Hell'd you wait so long to help us out!?!", Roberto screamed, startling Jon, Victor, and even Kate, who was standing near Darkman and Axis at the time.
"Oh, I saw you guys fighting, but thought it would be more awesome to wait until you absolutely needed a Deus Ex Machina to rescue your life. And it was. It WAS more awesome."
"…Damnit, he's not lying!", Roberto yelled, walking back over to Kate to vent his anger.
"…Well, that happened," Victor sarcastically remarked.
"I'm sure you already probably know how I ended up here," Jon said to him.
"Yeah, you just woke up here after sorta…falling asleep, right?"
"Pretty much. What's weird, though, is that I wasn't even tired at the time. I just…couldn't stay awake. Like, losing consciousness."
"Yeah, I get what you mean"
"So," Kate started to ask Roberto, "What was that about?"
"I don't wanna talk about it…"
Victor and Jon walked over to Kate and Roberto, who were watching Darkman heal Axis from a couple of feet away.
"Hey," Victor started to ask Kate, "Where did Aaron go?"
"Oh, he decided to go up onto the cart and be our lookout. He'll let us know if the 3 Outlaws decide to attack again," she answered.
"I wonder what they can be doing?", Roberto wondered.
"Yeah," Victor added, "They don't have, like, extra supplies in that cart, do they?"
"I'm sure we would have seen them if they did," Kate said to him.
"Well then, what the hell CAN they be doing!?"
"How should I know!?"
"What the Hell? What did I say to deserve that!?"
"Nothing," Victor teasingly answered, "It's just fun to insult you. It relieves stress. Like a cigarette, you know?"
"And cigarettes can kill if used to much…", She said, with a look of anger.
"Guys!", Aaron yelled, almost falling as he climbed the ladder down into the inside of the cart.
"What!?", everyone, with the exception of Darkman and Axis, responded in unison.
"Hurry up the ladder and look!"
"Why!?", Roberto yelled.
Leaving Darkman and Axis behind, Victor, Kate, Roberto, Jon, and Aaron each climbed the ladder up onto the top of the cart. The train was now running at an unbelievably fast pace, a speed that a normal steam train wouldn't be able to reach. Aaron pointed out into the distance, the direction that the train was headed in. Everyone was silent.
"…D-D-Damnit!", Kate yelled.
Ahead of them, barely noticeable in the distance, was the edge of a cliff, which seemed to fall straight down into a river below. A fall that no one could survive.
"I guess your screwed now, huh?", a cocky, western accented voice rang behind them.
Everyone turned around to face the sound, to find out that it was Nixon, along with Jin and Silva, standing on the edge of their cart. All of them had a creepy smile on their face.
"What do you mean?", Aaron asked.
"The deal we had with that villain guy is that you had to die. He didn't say how," Silva answered.
"So," Victor started to ask, "You weren't planning to kill us at all. You wanted to just plunge us into a river?"
"Actually," Jin responded, "We WERE planning to kill you all. We just weren't expecting another Hero to be here. And also…we weren't expecting you all to be so tough. You dodged everything we threw at you. Your all tough for your age, I'll give you that."
"So," Nixon started to ask, "That door will only reappear if we all die. Think you stand a chance?"
"Meh, easy," Victor answered, smiling.
"Well then," Nixon started to yell, "Come see how wrong you are!"
The 3 Outlaws started to run the opposite way of the Heroes, giving the room to follow. Victor turned to Aaron.
"Hey, Aaron, Darkman and Axis still need someone to defend them if they are in danger. Stay here with them until they're finished," Victor asked.
Victor then turned around and ran towards the edge of his cart, towards the 3 enemies, while Aaron hoped into the hatch that led to where Darkman was healing Axis. Kate, Jon, and Roberto, one by one, followed Victor, with their weapons drawn, and jumped onto the cart, knowing another battle was about to commence. The Heroes and the Outlaws both stared at each other in silence briefly, before Kate broke the stillness and charged at Jin. Roberto soon followed Kate, assisting in the fight with Jin. Jon ran to Nixon and started to swing his weapon above his head, as Nixon drew a rather large knife from his pocket. Victor took the remaining opponent, Silva, and swung his backhanded sword straight towards her left arm, which she quickly shielded by placing her repeater in the sword's path.
"Just so you know," Silva started to say, "It's nothing personal."
"I never thought it was," Victor responded, hoping that he didn't sound as cheesy as he thought he did. He did.
Silva quickly pointed her gun at Victor's head, pausing to yell "Ukas" as she pulled the trigger, which missed my millimeters, cutting through his hair as the bullet whizzed by. Victor responded to this by swinging his sword, as fast as he could, towards her head, managing to make a small cut through her scaly face before she shoved him away with her foot, forming a couple of feet of space between them as a result. She pointed her repeater at him, and a creepy smile formed on her face. Victor, having no time to run away or dodge, closed his eyes in fear, but a black-colored object shot by him, hitting Silva's repeater out of her hands as she was about to shoot. Victor, still stunned, turned to look behind him, and saw Aaron, Darkman, and Axis all standing at the end of the cart.
"Wassup!", Axis yelled.
"I've seriously had enough close calls for one day!", Victor yelled back.
"Well then," Axis started to say, as she walked closer to Victor, "Would you have been happier if I let her kill you?"
Silva raced to grab her gun, which had landed very close to the edge of the cart, but was too late. The strong wind being made by the train's speed caused the repeater to fall of the edge onto the ground below the train, and Silva cursed as loud as she could into the sky, before looking at Victor and drawing a knife, similar in size to the one Nixon had. Her evil smirk turned into a pitiful frown.
"This…isn't right," She spoke.
"What?", Axis and Victor both asked in unison.
So, what do you all think!?!
Yeah, I haven't gotten to that distinct part I mentioned above yet. It'll get there in Part 2.
I still think I did pretty well. 8)
Oh, and Jon is cheesyjon, just incase none of you knew.
Later, Home Skillets!
The second part is tomorrow!
P.S.-Happeh Birthday, Slyfur! Your awesome!
Huh? Did I say Fantasy Island?
What I meant to say was: Tales from that weird extension on the lower-right of the US. 8)
...Florida, just incase you still don't know what I'm talking about.
Wut Up, Home Skillets!
I'm back from that short extended vacation!
So, yeah, my Thanksgiving was awesome. 8)
A clock I saw in the Miami airport.
I took the pic because...I've never seen a clock of the Dominican Republic before.
What, have YOU!?!
The Biggest. Shrimp. Ever. These things were the size of my hands!
That cup is NOT tiny! The cup is normal sized. The shrimp were seriously so big they took up THAT much room!
Use the jar in the background for comparison. Giant. *******. Shrimp.
They were delicious, though. 8)
Pic of the Turkey. Nuff' Said. 8)
A pic of the pool, with a lake in the background. 8)
Yeah, my grandmother's house has an AMAZING view. I didn't actually use the pool while I was there. Not sure why: It just slipped my mind.
The bar area of her house, which I didn't use. Not that I would want to, anyways. 8)
An awesome fountain-statue-thing that she has. And never uses.
Yep. The front door. Amazing, no?
The giant table we ate Thanksgiving dinner at. There were only 3 people there at the time.
A pic of the lake at nigh. The tiki torches I added into the pic kinda ruined the quality.
So...yeah. There is a good image of where I spent the last couple of days, for your viewing pleasure. 8)
Or boredom. Whatever.
Oh yeah, even though I told a couple of you, most of you I didn't. So I'll let you all know that I got a haircut while I was there. 8)
I like it. 8)
I don't take insults to the way I look very well, so if you have something bad to say, please keep it to yourself.
Well, I guess I have wasted your time long enough.
That, and I'm getting bored of writing this.
Later, Home Skillets!
Wus Up, Home Skillets!
This isn't a normal blog.
This is an un-normal blog to let you all know that I won't be on for the next couple of days.
I know what your all thinking:
"What!?! NO! We can't survive without your greatness! I'll die if you leave!!!"
I shall be heading to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, to visit my grandmother for Thanksgiving. 8)
She has a *giant* pool. 8) I'll enjoy myself there.
She *DOES* have a computer, but I want to try to get a little time off of here, so I doubt I'll be posting, blogging (not that I do that much anyways), or commenting much until Saturday or Sunday.
The reason I want some time off from here is because I've recently been feeling insulted/angered by certain posts.
Not sure why, as I know that they aren't meaning them in a way that should be angering me or hurting me.
So, I think it may be because I spend to much time on here. And some time off will help me refresh.
So, yeah, enjoy yourselfs, have good Thanksgivings (those that celebrate it anyways), don't get into fights (unless your Slyfur, sirra mariostar, cheesyjon, Aidan, DrAwesome...you know what? Get into as many fights as you *possibly* can while I'm gone, alright? ), and...whatever.
...Poor piglet, though.
Laterz, Home Skillets!
....Yeah, that's my blog title. It may be my best yet. 8)
And it actually has a point! Sorta...you'll read it in the General section of my blog. (Is it weird that I, of all people, organize my blogs? )
I have not been playing much lately, for some reason.
I have gotten about half-way through Terra's story in Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep. I *would* be through it by now, but I haven't played in, like, a week.
I also have put about 1 hour into Grandia since my last blog.
I beat New Vegas, with the Yes Man scenario. 8) I loved it *much* more than Fallout 3. The evironment is less boring and maze-like, the story and characters are awesome, and...it was awesome, alright? 8) I don't get what everyone was talking about when they were complaining about it being glitchy though. The only glitch I ran into that *entire* game was when it crashed. Twice. That is *nothing* compared to the 50+ times I had to restart Fallout 3 because it crashed!
I also bought, and beat, Star Fox Assault recently. In about 2 days, actually. 8) It is a *very* short game. I like it though. Also, it's pretty damn rare! I've been looking for a copy for the last, say, year or so.
I decided to start playing Onimusha: Warlords recently, since it's just been sitting on my shelf gathering dust since I bought it *months* ago. I seem to do that a lot. I haven't played (hell, OPENED), like, half of my PS2 games.
So far, it's...amazing. I love it. It's like Resident Evil...with samurai. 8) I don't really think I need to say more.
So, the title of this blog, which I'm sure you've *all* been dying to hear about since this blog started.
Wait, why the Hell'd you not just scroll down if you wanted to read about it that much.
Anyways, my Computer Systems Tech (CST) ****went on this trip to a University campus to learn about, like, courses the entire time. I didn't pay much attention. I was stoked about it, because I got to spend the *entire* day out of school!
The entire time, I was hanging out with my friends Hunter, D.J., and Kevin. We are...all very unique.
I kept trying to push Hunter down the stairs.
Kevin was looking down at the ground from a balcony-thing in the main building, and yelled "Hey! Do you think I could survive a fall from here!?!". I ended up yelling back "No! You would fall down and die! Then your parents would cry, and not be able to get over your loss, and sell your stuff so that they wouldn't have to be reminded of how you died, and they would continue to cry, and stop talking to each other because of the sadness, and end up getting distracted when driving, and die in a car crash, and then the other commits suicide because he/she was sad at the second loss in a week, and then your sister, filled with sadness and anger, becomes a serial killer, and starts killing people that work in Italian restaurants, and becomes inFamous, and ends up taking her life as well after being arrested by the police, and then your family is gone. Forever. ALL because you had to jump off of a damn balcony!"
...Then, he yells "Dude...WTF?".
We ended up going to a mall afterwards to hang out for an hour. We ate. I ate some *awesome* sweet chicken wing things, and some noodles, which were...okay.
I walked into the arcade and started playing Dance Dance Revolution (which, it turns out, I'm pretty good at 8)) with one of Hunter's friends, who's name I didn't know. We ended up becoming pretty good friends after that.
...Though I left my Pepsi on that Goddamn machine.
I then played Hunter. I won the first round, then on the second, my feet gave out, and I fell onto the ground and...nearly fell asleep. I was done. 8)
Still won, though. 8)8) I'm good at dancing, I guess. 8)8)8)
I walked into Hot Topic, and found this *awesome* Kingdom Hearts shirt that I wanted to buy. Then I noticed that it was $20. I'm not blowing my *entire* allowance on a frickin' shirt!
They also had, in that store, a Kingdom Hearts FOLD OUT CHAIR! I'm not kidding: A fold out mushroom chair. It was one of the most epic things I had ever seen. I couldn't find a price tag, but...I'm sure it was over $20. I didn't have any room for it anyways.
And THAT...is my entire story. Did you seriously read through that? Seriously!?!
Awww...It reminds me of my hamster, Emerald.
...And how my friend Jacob killed him!
He denies any involvement, but I *know* he did *SOMETHING*!!!
Well, Laterz, Home Skillets, 8)
