The Legend of Tahquitz Part IIAlgoot had wandered in the wilderness for many days, and nights now, searching for the power he needed to defeat the demon Tahquitz.
He knew that he would have to make himself better, and stronger to match up to Tahquitz's power.
He went further into the woods, to seek the help of the Bear Nation. He came to them, and challenged many bears to fight him. Algoot began to fight small bears, until he could defeat them easily in a contest. He soon began to fight the bigger bears, and the ones bigger than that, until he could defeat the biggest, and strongest bear that ever lived.
Algoot then went back into the woods, and saw a buck. It began to run, and Algoot began to chase it. He chased it for many days, and nights, until he finally caught it, and let it go. He continued to run, and run, until he was faster than any deer in the forest.
Weary, Algoot went, and knelt by a nearby river. He saw a trout in the water. He tried to grab it, but it swam away from him. Algoot jumped into
The legend of Coyote BuffaloI'll tell you a story, as it was once told to me.
Long ago, Coyote the trickster was hungry, wandering through the wilderness. It was then, that he came across an old Buffalo Bull, sitting on a bluff, while looking to the East.
Then Coyote said, "Toketu He"' " Do you sit on this bluff sunning yourself on this fine day Grandfather?".
The old bull simply said, "Ta'ku Yaka pelo", "yes little one".
Then Coyote told the old bull that he was hungry, and the old one said, "If you are hungry, why don't you eat grass like a buffalo?".
Coyote said, "I am not a buffalo. Perhaps you could turn me into a buffalo, and I may hunger no longer."
"Very well" said the old bull as he got up. He told coyote to stand, and not move, then he stepped back away from him. Suddenly he stamped his foot, and began to charge. Fearful, Coyote jumped out of the way, and the bull ran past him.
Then the bull asked, "Why did you not stand still like I said?". And so, the bull charged Coyote several more times, but he alw
The Legend of WesakechakLong ago, it was told amongst the Cree,
that there was once a monster by the name of Windigo.
Windigo would steal men, women, and children to be eaten. Many had seen Windigo, but could not describe him, because he was so ugly.
Many had now been taken by the Windigo, and no one know what to do about it. It was during this time that a man called Wesakechak said, "I will go. I will kill the Windigo, and free our people from that demon forever!". And so, he departed on his quest, and for many days, he did not find the Windigo.
But one day in the wild, Wesakechak finally found the Windigo, and stood before it face, to face.
Wesakechak was terrified, for the Windigo was frightening, and looked hungry.
He knew that he could not match this monster in a fight, so he decided to outsmart it.
And so he said, "Ke minno iau nuh! Hello my brother, how are you on this fine day!?". Confused, but not swayed, the Windigo said, "Go-sto! I am well my brother, but I am very hungry. Build me a big fire."
The Legend of Eagle Boy Part 6Eagle Boy had endured much to come to this point.
And yet at this point, he possessed nothing to show for his vision quest.
He found himself upon the mountain top. Exausted, hungry, thirsty, and frustrated, he stood up on the fourth day upon the mountain, and shouted to the spirts: "I Have Been Here For Four Days, And Four Nights!... AND YOU GIVE ME NOTHING!!!"
Without a vision, he journeyed back to the old Lakota wiseman, and confessed that he had returned once again with nothing.
Eagle Boy pleaded, "What must I do now! The Spirits refuse to give me a vision I need to be a man!"
The old man looked at Eagle Boy with deep, knowing eyes, and said, "Eagle Boy, you search so long, and hard for wisdom, and power. Would you even know it if it was given to you?! These virtues are hard to achieve, and they are misunderstood by many.
You fought, and resisted the spirits! you thought for sure that owed you a vision!
Know this; self suffering does not bring a vision, nor does sheer wil
The Legend of Eagle Boy part 5Eagle Boy walked with power.
And this power was his, so long as he always shielded the heart of Unceliga from the eyes of his people.
Every day, the heart asked him to do a special ceremony for it, and whenever Eagle boy questioned it, the heart simply said, "If you do not do as I say Eagle boy, I will take away the power that I have given to you".
Eagle Boy obeyed, but he was still confused, and unhappy about it.
He had been given great power, but he now began to grow weary of it.
He was tired of having any woman that he wanted, for he missed the opportunity to win a young girl's heart.
He was tired of never having to hunt for his meat, for he missed the times when he would go hunting with his fellow warriors.
He even grew tired of his ability to see into the future, for when he found that the future was nothing to celebrate. He could see the coming of the white man, the stealing of the Lakota's land, the destruction of the buffalo, and even the destruction of the Black hills as he ha
The Legend of Eagle Boy part 4Eagle Boy was in the fight for his life...
He did not know how long he had been underwater. He couldn't even remember how long he had been fighting the serpent Unceliga. He only knew that if he could not find the strength within himself, he would suffer the same fate as many before him had recieved.
As Unceliga held him in her vice-like grip, Eagle Boy looked in his right hand, and saw his fourth, and last Waccan Arrow, broken in half.
She tightened her grip, and as he tightened his grip on his arrow, he began to count the spots on her belly.
Just as his lungs were about to burst, he spotted the 7'th spot! It was just within reach! And with his last ounce of strength, he Struck, and sank the tip of his arrow into the soft flesh of her belly at the 7'th spot!
Unceliga screamed, and writhed within the water, and instantly Eagle Boy was freed. He drifted up to the surface, and gasped for the sweet air. He dragged his aching body onto the shore.
Unceliga, with her last breath shot out of t
The Legend of Eagle Boy Part 3Eagle Boy knew now, that Unceliga was real.
And Hectaca, the Elk had spoken the truth.
So he went east as the Elk had instructed, to find the one women who possessed the arrows to slay Unceliga.
Eventually, he found a cave. He entered it, and found that it was indeed inhabited by a woman. But she was nothing as the Elk had described her, for she was old, fat, and ugly.
She did not seem a bit suprised when Eagle Boy entered her cave. Eagle Boy said to her, "Old woman. I am up on this mountain seeking a vision. The Elk told me that if I could slay the water monster Unceliga, I could have wisdom, and power."
The old woman eyed him, and said, "Unceliga can only be killed with the Waccan Arrows. It is my duty to keep those arrows." She reached into a basket, and revealed four normal-looking arrows with owl fletchings. Then she said, "What will you give me in return for my arrows that will give you what you need?". "She looked at him, and said, "It has been many snows since I was held by a m
The Legend of eagle Boy part 2After Eagle Boy had been driven off of the mountain by the spirits, he traveled into the forest, and went to an old Lakota Wiseman. For it was he who sent Eagle boy on his quest four days, and nights ago.
Eagle Boy told the old man what had happened, and how his quest had failed. The old man said "you must return to the same spot on the mountain, and continue to pray for your vision". Eagle Boy said "What is the use, the spirits don't listen to me. They drove me off the mountain." "Then go home! " said the old man, "see what wisdom you can find there!".
Frustrated, and tired, Eagle Boy took his buffalo robe, and went back up the mountain, where he sat down at the spot, and continued to pray for a vision.
Eagle Boy had now been there for three days, and three nights, and he was beginning to question whether, or not he could make it another day, and night on the mountain.
Hunger he had known before, and could withstand it.
His buffalo robe shielded him from the cold.
But it was his thirs
The Legend of Eagle Boy part 1I will tell you a story, as it was told to me long ago.
Long ago, when a young Lakota came of age, the elders sent him to the top of Bear Butt in what is today South Dakota for four days, and four nights. He was given no food, and no water, just him, his buffalo robe, and the chanunpa(the sacred pipe).
It was upon this mountain that a young warrior by the name of "Eagle boy" sat seeking a vision of wisdom, and power from the spirits that would give him good medicine.
He was singing his songs upon the mountaintop, when he heard a thundering voice that said, "BE QUIET!".
Eagle Boy paused, not knowing whether he had truly heard something from the spirits, or not, and so he resumed his singing. And soon enough, the voice came again, saying, "HAS TUNKASHILA GIVEN YOU NO EARS!". Eagle Boy stopped, stood up, and said, "I am Eagle Boy, who speaks to me!". The voice responded saying, "THERE ARE MANY OTHER MOUNTAINS YOU COULD HAVE PICKED. WHY THIS ONE? ALL NIGHT LONG WE HAVE HAD TO HEAR YOU SING
12 Reasons why I am a Christian1. Heaven is real and I want to go there and live forever with family and friends! Not to mention Jesus and the prophets!
1. Hell is real and I don't want to end up there. Hell is a place of torture and chained up in the lake of fire or Hell fire.
2. Jesus forgives just like we can with each other!
3. Life is a test. The test is about how we can turn away from sin by following Jesus testimony and the ten commandments. To lay are sins at the feet of the cross.
4. The Christian Bible is history about family values and good overcoming evil.
5. Jesus death on the cross is the central point.
6. Jesus died on the cross for my sins because he loves us like a family member,
7. Everyone is a sinner except Jesus who created all of us in his image.
8. The first births of the human race could not have survived without Jesus either instructing them on how to live on there own or given the basic instinct of how to live on there own. That goes for animals too. Remember Noah and the ark.
9. Jesus has
Spirit of the Titanic / Unpleasant
Hello my dear friends and lovers, young and old alike... I have recently being seeing and hearing some arguments and criticism surrounding my successor, Titanic II.
I have seen humans talk back and forth and some have shown to be frustrated or losing their patience in wanting to know when Titanic II will be built and that some are now saying as well as speculating that this is all a big made up story and not going to happen. I don't normally get involved in arguments since it's not my style and is very un-lady like of me but it really breaks my heart to see other people not wanting to believe that my rebirth will happen but it is going to... it just takes time to do this since a lot of hard work and thought has gone into the project to bring me back to world of the living, to give the modern generation the experience that my people had when they sailed on me back in 1912 back from a different time when the world was different when there was a different culture.
From some people who say
Is it only me?Is it only me that somewhat dislikes the idea of having an insane minecrafter? I mean, of course it's a creative idea, and that many people seem to love it, but it just seems... retorical to me. I mean, first of all, the personalities each shares seems to be quite similar. The sterotypically insane. I apologize if you don't want to hear this, but, remember next time, not all insane people kills. They don't lavish themselves in blood or act crazy. Some want to hide it, while others love to use it as there pride. But when people create insane minecrafters, they all seem to share the same attribute. They don't have diverse personalities, it just seems to me, there a mockery of insane. Again, I will repeat, not all insane people kill or bath in blood.

Careless WhisperThere was once a young girl who loved someone dearly, and she thought that he loved her back, seeing as how he started the relationship. The young girl remembers the time they danced together, they were only in second or third grade. They were adorable together, she thought that she found someone who actually liked her unlike her classmates who bullied and teased her. Until one day when best friend told her that her boyfriend had just proposed to her, her boyfriend proposed to her best friend with a ring and stuff. She cried, but not on the outside, but on the inside she thought that he LOVED her, but I guess that she was wrong, 'I mean who would love a fat freak like me?' she thought to herself, she ignored her ex-boyfriend the rest of the year after that he moved back to his homeland. And never even bothered to send her a letter or say goodbye...
And to this day the young girl still has feelings for him, even though she hadn't really talked to him since the proposal.
I shall wait for your answer~Sebastian's pov~
I was washing the dishes before I heard a noise outside, Ciel was already in bed, the pesky servants were out, so it was quite a peaceful and quiet night. I went outside to check out what had caused the noise, when I reached the patio Grell was on the floor in the verge of death, I didn't think twice to pick him up and bring him inside. His wounds were very deep and severe, I layer him in my bedroom while I looked for a bucket to clean his wounds, I took his blazer and shirt off revealing a huge gash, he flinched with every touch even though he was unconscious. His blood just kept coming out he needed to be stitched up but I couldn't do that, for the first time ever I needed help.
I was soundly asleep in my coffin when I suddenly heard a loud knock at the door I sprung up and walked slowly towards the door until I heard Sebastian's voice call out
"UnderTaker!! Open up its an emergency!"
I ran to the door and open-end the fourteen locks faster
When the Past Haunts 12
Alfred awoke to find that Arthur was no longer in his arms or in the room at all. Panic flashed through him and he dashed from the guest room. He called his boyfriend's name in hopes of getting some form of a reply. And he got one. Al and Arthur stumbled backwards a bit as they stared at one another in surprise. The next second, Alfred's arms were around his Brit, "Arthur!"
"Alfred! Oh G-d," Arthur began and they finished his sentence together, "I missed you."
They frowned at one another and pulled away a bit, "What do you mean?"
"Uh, it's a bit complicated." Alfred scratched the back of his neck.
Arthur worried his lip in an attempt to ward off tears, "A rather long story for me."
"Aw! C'mere, babe, let's forget 'bout it, okay?" Al asked. Arthur nodded and was pulled into a tighter hug, kisses wiping spilled tears.

The Cuconic Steel ProblemFYI : This is not a real thing i just made it up, so dont worry, but feel free to tell me ur opinion of it! Also if u spot any kind of Thor/Tom Hiddleston reference then point it out in the comments if u want!
Back in 1978, a doctor called Dr Peter Steel found a cure for an ongoing flu. The flu was very dangerous and would even come to the point of killing people. Dr Steel was proud that he had found this cure, but, didn't want to release it as he was to hung up in glory and selflessness. He had told no-one except his Friend, Dr Tracy Phillips. Steel was going to keep the cure secret until someone had died of the flu, so he could be in the tabloids and be put down in history. The flu spread very quickly and some doctors were baffled by how a cure could not be found.
2 months later, A doctor called Dr Adam Cuconic was also figuring out and studyin
The Legend of Tahquitz Part II will tell you a story as it was told to me.
Long ago, it was told amongst the Cahuilla, that there lived a tribe at the foot of a great mountain. There, the chief, known as Algoot, lead his people peacefully in their traditional ways.
Among the people, there was also a great medicine man, born, and raised in the ways of his preceeder. His name was Tahquitz.
Tahquitz was a good shaman, but very mischievous, and full of tricks, and pranks. Seen at first as a passive trait, the people did not worry about it. Soon however, strange things began to happen in him. He slowly began to take interest in darker, more evil spirits, and strange medicines. It wasn't long before he began to practice these arts, and his pranks became acts of physical, and spiritual harm to others. He even began to practice the act of turning into animals, which was unnatural, even for a shaman.
It became apparant that the great medicine man that he was, was slowly changing into something darker.
Algoot came to Tahqui
