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.

How to find Good Literature on DeviantArtHow to find Good Literature on Deviantart
Does anybody else find themselves frustrated when tearing through the countless pages of nonsense and fan-fiction and erotic prose with furry animals as the subjects? After a long, meticulous process, I’ve discovered a search method for discovering enjoyable pieces of literature on Deviantart.
1) Categorical Mayhem: Start by refining your search to a specific category in the search bar. Pick a certain category you feel interested in, then delve into browsing. Remember that some categories, such as General Fiction, are dumping grounds for loads of writing pieces that generally are just low quality and bad. Try to avoid those is possible, and specify your search down to the medium of writing (i.e. Short Story, Flash Fiction, etc.).
2) Title Savvy: While Fan-fiction is generally interesting to read in some regards, a lot of it is just bad. Like, really bad… I, personally, have found gems within the fan-fiction genre, sparkling diamonds
Review: Phineas and Ferb Star WarsReview: Phineas and Ferb Star Wars
I am a Star Wars fan, have been since I was eight years old. And I do enjoy Phineas and Ferb as well, however I too am a fan of Marvel comics, and I won't lie, I thought that Mission Marvel wasn't the best episode. And when I heard news of the future of Star Wars and word of this crossover, I had my doubts and it took much time for me to build up enthusiasm for it. I had a bad feeling about it.
That being said, what do I think after seeing it? Well...
I enjoyed it. I really did enjoy this a lot, I feel it totally makes up for Mission Marvel. I did greatly like how each Phineas and Ferb character wasn't actually cast as a Star Wars character, rather they were their own that interacted with the ones from Star Wars. I especially loved the scene of the boys interacting with Luke that referred to a cut scene from “A New Hope” where Luke briefly witnesses the opening battle behind the ships. I loved how every character was done, the boys i

Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars
Phineas and Ferb Star Wars Follow UpPhineas and Ferb Star Wars Follow Up
I've gotten to see the episode a couple more times and I wanted to talk about some things I didn't get to cover in my review.
Starting off, the stuff with Jim Cummings narrating the opening text, while Dan and Swampy direct him. Of all things, it made me think of the original trailer for “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. And the bit with this episode not being canon, loved it.
Covering the moments with Perry and Darth Enshmirtz, I enjoyed the scene of Perry stealing the Death Star plans for the Rebels. I loved how the location was a type of office building built into a Star Destroyer and how most of everyone on board were depicted like how office shows. (Kudos to the Myth Busters guys having a cameo.) And in the brief chase, I loved how one guy tried to cover up what he's looking at as “work related” and then how another desperately tries to save his work while the ship starts to list.
And most of Darth Enshmirtz's stuff I t
Lucy Review - 500 Word Limit
Released in 2014 under the direction of Luc Besson ("Leon the Professional," "The Fifth Element," "Taken") on a budget of $40 million with distribution through Universal Pictures; "Lucy" is Besson's recent sci-fi action thriller that dares to blend fast-paced action and the metaphysical aspect of evolving to the next stage of human evolution: godhood…only minus the Star Child.
Living abroad in Taiwan, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is pressured by her boyfriend Richard (Pilou Asbaek) to deliver a suitcase full of synthetic drugs to a drug cartel run by Kang (Choi Min-sik). To deliver the drug, a bag is placed inside her lower stomach and sewn up to transport, but she is intercepted and held prisoner by a rival gang, causing the bag to rupture and leak inside her body, boosting her cerebral capacity past the fictional 10% and allowing her to realize the wonders of the universe around her and allowing her to read minds, move things, collect data at an incredible rate.

LOK: The Terror Within Review
Hey everyone. First of all, fuck Nickelodeon.
Their treatment of this series has been absolutely pathetic. This franchise is the best thing that’s ever happened to them – fuck Spongebob Squarepants - and yet when it comes to Korra they seem to want to take any chance they can get to screw them over.
Nick, these guys gave you The Last Airbender, arguably the greatest animated series ever made, you should let these guy do what they want on faith alone. Instead you seem to want to do anything in your power to fuck them over, and in this case blame them when ratings decline.
Nick, you’re Electronic Arts-ing your best ongoing show. For shame.
....with my rant finished, let us take a look at today’s new episode!
What I Liked
The GLORIOUS Fight Scene
With my annual weekly salivating of the shows fight scenes, this episodes may just be the best one yet. The usual compliments are all here; it was beautifully animated and well choreog
RWBY volume 2 episode 1 review
Rwby is back with a vengence.
The new RWBY episode was a great start to the season.
I'll start by saying that the animation has improved significantly. The quality of the models looks better, and I didn't see any visual hiccups either. The team at Rooster-teeth has really improved.
We start off with the Dust shop from last season, now open again (which might I add is a nice touch) and we meet two new characters, Emerald and Mercury. I like these two, they have a good dynamic. I also like Emerald's voice.
Then we get to see team RWBY again, where Ruby has planned one last day of fun before the new semester starts. We dont get to see these plans because a food fight erupts between teams RWBY and JNPR.
Rwby has great fight scenes, and this might just be the best one yet. It showcases the character's abilities while also providing a funny, yet action packed fight sequence.
We also get to se Sun again and we are introduced to Neptune, a membe
