The fuzziness of sleep clears from my head; I realize that I am in my room, located in the inn of No Names, my room, a room reserved for guests. My eyes are already adjusted to the darkness of the room, the shades pulled mostly closed so that only a sliver of the morning sun makes it in, cutting a line down the middle of the room.
Stretching my arms a bit, bringing them to life, I look down and check my powerful and responsive muscles, they respond to my commands with the same tight actions as normal. I trained my body to be durable and full of stamina, the sinewy strong muscles are stronger than they look at first glance, each muscle on my body, worked to the peak of perfection. Brushing my hands through my hair, I can feel those same unruly spikes brushing against my fingertips, rebel against my hands.
Looking up at the new face in my room, I see him all to clearly. “Whoever you are, get out.”
Scooting my butt back against the bed, pushing my back up against it, the light falls on me, fully clothed. I lean my head back and rest it on the bed. My eyes stare up at the ceiling dully.
Even after the strenuous activity of the dream I am not breathing hard, the beating of my heart is still quiet.

Penndarius snorts with laughter, “Of course not, you are sleeping alone in a room with the curtains drawn and no possessions other than what is on your back, why would you need anything.”
He turns to leave heading for the door, I interrupt him as he is passing through the doorway into the lit hallway beyond, “Thank you.” The comment catches him off guard and he stops in the doorway taking a moment before he responds.
Finally, as the time passes Penndarius finally shrugs his shoulders in acknowledgment of my comment, his hands on either side of the door frame, leaning into the solid wood, this lasts for only brief moment and it is gone, fleeting as it first appeared, leaving no trace.
He continues forward leaving me alone in my room, closing the door softly, only a whisper of a noise is made as the dust swirling at the doorway settles back to the ground.

- ... I thought the musical twist was very interesting and exciting, because how many YA novels have you read in the 21st century were a gay guy writes, directs and produces an entire musical whilst still in high school. The first Will we meet is Green's Will, who's a quiet, funny guy who feels like a little 'Plan B' to his large (no really), gay best friend Tiny Cooper at most times. He's thinks a lot before he does something, usually and his number one rule is: shut up. Many can learn from that rule, and could certainly apply that to their lives....

- "Grayson" comic writers Tim Seeley and Tom King fail to understand the difference between empowerment vs. sexualization which Richard Grayson [main protagonist] is deemed less of an empowered hero and turned into an icon of sexual humiliation. Starting with the concept of male objectification, the question of, ‘Does it Matter?’ arises in terms of discussion. It’s a simple answer: Yes. It does matter and it’s very important to consider even if males fall into the lower percentages of molestation and rape.... [tags: Male, Sex, Female, Nightwing]

- An average day for freshman football player Greyson Felner consists of an eight hour school day, three hour sports practice, two hour homework load, and maybe, if he has time, an one or so hour block of free time. However, these are just statistics, and they vary far and wide depending on the particular student. This then begs the question: How does a student manage both school and sports. What are their universal thoughts and worries and joys in relation to this. When asked, each student athlete is more than capable of listing a slew of joys they experience in relation to being on a high school sports team.... [tags: managing school and sports]

- A bond that a child has with their parents can never be match. The love a parent gives their child is priceless. But I believe that children, once grown up, owe nothing to the parents who raised them. I say this because even animals, which lack reason, provide love to their child without a need of repayment. I, also, have a sense of experience raising my brothers and sisters and can say they owe me nothing. Finally, a parent should provide care, love, and protection of harm for their child. If the parents do not raise their child with care, love, and protection then its up to the child to decide whether he or she will raise their child in a similar matter or not....

- “I was heading towards this warm, white light” – a line from a play (Larson, 1993) in which a character returns from the brink of death and tells of her experience. This concept of approaching light is an example of merely one aspect of a near-death experience (NDE), something that is scattered through film, fiction and media, so much so that a lot of people probably have a stereotypical idea of what such an experience involves. They commonly occur at a time when a person is close to death or think that they are, and can involve an out-of-body experience, contact/visions of deceased loved ones, a tunnel moving towards light, peaceful feelings and entering light among other things (French and...
