What I Wouldn't Sacrifice - 17Chapter 17: The Basilisk above the FallsWhat I Wouldn't Sacrifice - 17 by BambooFoxFire
The wind was louder than was usual as Faulklin stirred, and he thought he heard a crackle like a fire. Perhaps it was merely somewhat of a stormy day and the royal prick had settled to making something to eat. There was no light beaming down on him as per the usual when they went back to the Shrine, but perhaps Daijoudan had set him down in the shadows. It seemed likely.
Somewhere distant, an eagle chattered, and closer, Khu croaked softly, the sound bouncing off the walls. The smell was as musty as always, but tainted by the faint scent of blood. The sound of the horses was absent, but he guessed they might be outside grazing.
His eyes fluttered open, but at first all he saw was blurred darkness of blacks, greys, and browns. The shadows at the corner of his vision slowly receded, and he caught a hint of glow off to the side, met with two lifted, glowing spots of gold and orange, like a great pair of flickering eyes. He might have startle
"Sarcasm -- one of the free services I offer"
"Over the years I've learned to value people for their knowledge and experience, rather than their looks. Because looks come by their selves. You either are lucky enough to inherit a good looking pair of genes, or you are not. Experience, on the other hand, is something people work their asses off for. Something that takes effort, and deserves respect."
"Funny thing is, we cynics behind our thick crusts of distrust, sarcasm, and all around pessimism are probably some of the happiest people around. All the idealist, attention whores, extroverts, et cetera... They all live thinking they're hot shit and everything is all well and nice, but then when shit happens they slip into depression not wanting to believe how people are so scornful and hateful, yet at the same time trying to convince themselves there's some good, but not us. No, from the beginning we know people are generally shit, and we spend years knowing that, and in the end we could not give two fucks about it and therefore manage to avoid the realization depression all these once-happy pricks inevitably realize.
Welcome to the real world assholes! Remember we were here first!"
S♄εяło¢к♓ołм℮s: "Well, obviously the origin of life doesn't *directly* have anything to do with evolution--but what I was asking is where does the matter that things evolve from come from? It is related. You talk about all the stages of evolution and it had to have started somewhere. "
Me: "Amebas. We all came from amebas. And just like amebas we still want to absorb and consume everything and then divide like crazy.
One of us! One of us! XD
S♄εяło¢к♓ołм℮s: Buuuut where did the amoebas come from??? xD
Me: God caught a cold and sneezed on the world- IDON'TKNOW XD
No but, what if... Just think about it for a moment. What if.

"Well I’ve already resolved that holding my breath on anything regarding you is a quick way to suffocation..."
~Mamoru, Fosterling: Crow's Nest Chapter 22
Faulklin: "Doesn't fucking matter where I learned it, I can speak however the Hell I want to. Fuck, fuck, crap, damn, fuck, shit, damn, fuckety-fuck, cunt, bastard, son of a bitch, screw you."
Mamoru: "I'm half-tempted to make you eat a bar of soap..."
Faulklin: "Try it and I'll shove that bar of soap so far straight up your ass you'll be the one eating it in reverse."
~Fosterling: Book One - The Crow's Nest; Chapter 23
xCleverFox : They're very cherished and they know it
Faulklin: *rolls eye* Yeah, cherished my ass
Havoc: Shut up, no one loves you, you're adopted
Faulklin: *snarls and mauls*
"I had a thought, but it got lonely and went away."
"Sorry, my trains of thought derailed. There were no survivors."
"*Yaaaawwn...* I'm sorry, all I can hear is: 'Hit me, Angel, Please! Attack me! Man I'm so pathetic...'."

A man complains to a woman that he hasn't been with any women for a while and tries to talk her into pity sex. The woman tells him: "You think you have it that bad? It's all about persepctive, dude.

Jack Sparrow: I do that a lot. Yet people are always surprised.

"Speaking of the inimitable, while the titles Catcher in the Rye and Rememberance of Things Past are poetically evocative, they wouldn't distinguish themselves from the pack in the Too-Much-Information Age. Nowadays, your project is competing for attention with a video of a toddler trapped behind a couch.(I'm serious, Google it, it's got all the makings of great drama; a sympathetic protagonist, conflict, complications, laughter, tears and an uplifting ending. All in 2 minutes and 27seconds)."

Rarely “by the people” and never “for the people”, all governments are designed to protect the ones in power and to do whatever it takes to perpetuate their privileges.
"I have the feeling you're trying to incorporate all the opinions you're getting in the comment column. Do NOT do that. You can not crowdsource a query or you will end up with a query that walks like a duck, spins like a puck, steals your luck and earns your query a brisk WTF."

"Humans are Weak. They have no fangs or claws. Why, their only unique skill is crying, and yet, somehow, they managed to conquer the entire world. Do you know why? Because among all living things on the planet, humans are the most cruel!"

"Those who make others laugh often need the most help."
"Laughter and cheer are kind of contagious. So when you have nothing to smile about you try to get other people to, so you have a reason to. Plus laughter is one of the best coping techniques there is. People can laugh their way through having a leg ripped off. So when you see people who’s first response to getting fucked is to laugh about it, you can bet they just wen’t through enough shit to learn they don’t have the time to waste being upset."
