Two Wolves - TaleA Old Cherokee Chief was teaching his grandson about life

"One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superority, self-doubt, and ego."
"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truith, compassion, and faith."
"The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person too!"

The old Chief simply replied,
"The one you feed"

Do Not CryDo not stand at my grave and weep:
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the softly fallen snow;
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the field of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the grateful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
So do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

Scary As Hell Cartoon Characters #2 Mr. Resetti
Scary As Hell Cartoon/Video Game Characters #2 Mr. Resetti, by YoshiWii1.
Hello my fellow Video game fans! It's YoshiWii1 here. Today, I have decided to make another Scary As Hell Cartoon/Video Game character review. In this reviews, I will explain who the character is for those of you who don't know? I will be sharing my opinion, the scare factor of the character, where this character appears, etc. Please be advised that I am NOT responsible if you guys get nightmares from these characters. I hope you will enjoy this review and I hope you guys don't get too scared from the character?
==Who Is Mr. Resetti?==
For those of you have never played the Animal Crossing series from Nintendo? Mr. Resetti is a recurring character that appears manually. He isn't an antagonist (there is no antagonists in the Animal Crossing series unless you count Redd aka Crazy Redd as one since he is a shady Black Market fox.) To meet Mr. Resetti you must do one of the following:
1) Reset the N6
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
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
KK12's Top 30 6th Generation Games 25-21
Loyal Subjects, I'm the Keyblade King and let's open the door on the second part of my countdown to the best games the sixth generation of consoles has to offer.
SUPER MARIO SUNSHINE
“What?! You’ve just put THE Super Mario Sunshine at only a mere number 25 on a list of the greatest of the sixth generation games! For shame!...Asshole” –Voice of the Internet.
Yeah, yeah, I know. Let me try to defend myself on this one to the legions of fans that this game has.
To start off, it was a really difficult game to place. It’s not that it’s bad. On the contrary, the game looks amazing for its time, has a great soundtrack and gave a lot more character to the guy whose only skill was once upon a time; jumping. This game was one of the first Mario games to have proper cutscenes and voice acting. It was also the first appearance of Bowser Jr. and one of the first Mario
A Garfield fan reviews the Garfield movie
A Garfield fan reviews The Garfield Movie
For as long as I can remember, I have been a very huge fan of Garfield. My parents owned a couple of the reprint books when I was a kid, and I loved to read and re-read them over and over again. I watched the Garfield and Friends TV show whenever I could, and I also got a lot of the Garfield books put out alongside the comics, like the Pet Force series. I probably got on the nerves of my parents and a lot of my friends just talking about Garfield constantly. And I loved his cartoons so much that he was one of my biggest inspirations to become a cartoon artist myself. If it weren’t for Garfield, I probably would have never set foot into art school, and you probably would have never seen me here on Deviant Art (or Furaffinity, or whichever website you‘re reading this from).
So you could imagine when around 2002 or 2003 how excited I was when the Garfield website announced a movie adaptation. Around this time the comic wa

Steel waved at an anthropomorphic skunk, who was practicing martial arts. She smiled sweetly at that.

Everyone has things to hide?
Steel froze as he saw a white cat-like creature with small, pink eyes a
