"Artang, Clara!" the Doctor said, giving a flourish as he pushed a lever over. "The wonderful planet of Artang. You're going to love it, I can just tell."
"I'm sure I will," Clara agreed. "Well, I would be sure if I actually knew what was on this planet of Artang that is so wonderful."
"Oh, yes, of course!" the Doctor exclaimed. "It's magical. It's sort of like Hogwarts, but instead of a school, it's a planet!"
Clara knit her brows. "So what you're saying is that in essence it's a planet full of people with magical powers? Do they use wands and fly around on broomsticks?"
"Well, no. Yes. Sort of," the Doctor rambled. "It's not actual magic, not the way that you humans think of it. For them, it's just a scientific fact of life. Every last Artangian is born with it. They all look similar as well. But as for broomsticks and wands, I don't believe so."
"Still sounds awfully fun," Clara replied. "So, Doctor, how much longer until we make it there?"
"I'm glad you asked," the Doctor answered. "You see, if I just press this and then spin that..." His voice faded away as he forced himself to focus on piloting the TARDIS. "There we go. We should be landing right about now."
Sure enough, the Doctor had done as he said. The TARDIS began to wheeze in its typical landing fashion. It was a sound that never got old, not in a few days, not in several thousand years. It simply signified adventure and discovery, which was a...

... guess proving my identity will be a good way to get back in there."
"Hm," the Doctor grunted. He wasn't too keen on having this girl who wasn't much more than a stranger starting to pilot his precious TARDIS. So far she hadn't been able to produce any real proof that she was telling the truth. Of course, this flight was meant to be her proof.
"You two can go have fun with that," Clara said, her lips turning up.
"Oh, yes, that's perfect," Brook gushed. "You can stay here and time my flight. I'm aiming for ten minutes exactly. Got it?"
Clara gave a thumbs up, and then decided to turn her gaze back to the Doctor. When he gave her an irritated look, she just shrugged and shot a grin over towards him. He was in Brook's hands now, and she had chosen to trust her.
"Come on, Daddy!" Brook said, jumping into action and sending her curls flying. "I've got a TARDIS to pilot!"

- Hello again. In our second installment in the Creative Writing Elements series, we will discuss how to draw your audience into a legitimately capturing setting. Nearly every work of fiction and nonfiction relies on some form of setting. According to the ever-reliable Mirriam-Webster dictionary, setting is defined as “the place and conditions in which something happens or exists,” or more specifically, “the time, place, and conditions in which the action of a book, movie, etc., take place,” (merriam-webster.com)....

- Fiction is primarily aimed at eliciting emotions of others. When a reader becomes deeper engaged in a fictional story, they often forget how fictional the story really is and enthralled in the characters.This deeper connection in turn leads to an experience of the emotions of the characters; causing a deeper connection to the reading. According to Bruner (Bruner J 1986), a person reading fiction will react more towards a story than when you would read a non-fictional story because fiction provides a safe place for a reader to be able to experience emotions without the need for being self conscious....

- 01 Nov. 2015 The Importance of the Elements of Fiction Every story is arranged in a specific way to portray a precise meaning. The author places the narrative in certain time frames, environments, and social spheres adding different characters so the reader is able to gain a distinct perspective on the central idea the story is centered on. Plot, character, setting, and point of view, are vital elements to the effectiveness of a story. When comparing and contrasting any two stories, we can see these elements of fiction present regardless of the end result.... [tags: Fiction, Narratology, Narrative, Narrator]

- Family plays a key role in all societies and cultures, and happiness is the direct result of the love within a family. The text discussed in the family theme has portrayed examples of both happy and very unhappy families. Three pieces of literature that discuss themes pertaining to the happiness and well-being of a family are Daddy, Sonny’s Blues, and On Going Home. While some of the themes raised in these works such as forgiveness and unconditional love are vital in order for families to be happy, themes involving change and loss are most certainly not necessary in contributing to a family’s happiness....

- The Shock of Plath’s Daddy “Daddy” is one of the most highly anthologized poems of Plath's (along with "Lady Lazarus"). It is a notorious poem, the one once compared to "Guernica" by George Steiner. The imagery and audaciousness of it still shock, so much so that I don't even know if it is being taught or anthologized or taught any more; it is almost as if the critical world has had its say on it and has moved on, either to other poems in Ariel, or to other books altogether, such as The Colossus or Crossing The Water....

- Analysis of Sylvia Path's Daddy After doing some research on the poet Sylvia Plath it soon became apparent that this poem “Daddy” is somewhat of a confessional life story. Throughout the poem Plath incorporates many different elements to reveal the theme of her negative attitude towards men in her life especially that of her father. In lines 2-3 “Any more black shoe, In which I have lived like a foot.” Plath uses the image of feet and black shoes to begin to reveal the picture of her relationship with her father....

- Loss and Trauma in Plath’s Daddy In addition to the anger and violence, 'Daddy' is also pervaded by a strong sense of loss and trauma. The repeated 'You do not do' of the first sentence suggests a speaker that is still battling a truth she only recently has been forced to accept. After all, this is the same persona who in an earlier poem spends her hours attempting to reconstruct the broken pieces of her 'colossus' father. After 30 years of labor she admits to being 'none the wiser' and 'married to shadow', but she remains faithful to her calling.... [tags: Daddy Essays]

- Truth vs. Fiction in Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass and Uncle Tom's Cabin It is often said that truth is stranger than fiction. Perhaps, this is so, as truth wears no veil; it is stark reality. There are no soft edges in truth. Only the most zealous hunters, those willing to meet the sword, actively seek it. The majority, while considering ourselves open to the truth, may only realize it when it comes disguised as something else. In short, it seems that we need to see it as not threatening, but molded and plied into something we can digest.... [tags: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass]

- Pulp Fiction is a controversial film, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, in 1994. It has almost everything you could wish for in a movie; drama, hilarity, intensity, action, thrills, fun, intelligence, romance, intimacy, over-the-top bravado, vulgarity, sweetness, humor, and soul-searching. The film is very raw and brutal, but has a unique sense of style that keeps the viewers entertained. It will build its way up gradually to an incredibly intense scene, before dropping down to a relatively calm, only to build back up again a few scenes later.... [tags: essays research papers]
