“Whatever dude. Don’t even know why you’re burying em,” Scott brooded, leafing through the pages of Lycanthropy and You before something caught his eye and he started smiling with amusement at one of the pages.
Stiles paused to wipe the sweat from his brow once the hole seemed deep enough, slinging his elbow to rest on the wooden handle for a moment to admire his handiwork. He smiled smugly and threw the shovel with a careless swing to the side, laying it to rest by the pile of dirt from his efforts as he squatted to pick up the various books on magic and myths until he tossed them unceremoniously one-by-one into the hole.
It was a warm, summer night and smelled of heady moisture, enough to spawn drops of sweat with little effort at all. They were some few hundred feet behind the skeleton bones of the Hale house in a thicket of tall ash trees, fumbling around with the light from a crescent moon above. Or at least Stiles was fumbling, unaided by wolfy prowess and x-ray vision, or whatever bizarro shit they had going on in there.
Stiles ripped a few rabbit eared sheets from Wolfsbane and other Practical Herbs and crumpled those before tossing them into the pit, deciding soon after to just drop the entirety of the book on top of it. The number of books he had collected was huge, and it took a few trips to the Jeep before Scott and him had rounded them all up to bring them down and into the woods.
Being the only human in a clod of supernatural beings left you with little room for day-saving or town-destroying, so he found his own way to be useful. Stiles had warped himself into a veritable pit of know...

...ctory as he lay in the dirt for a while beside his half filled hole and pathetic attempt at burying memories. He felt the cool air of the lowlands rolling up the hill toward him, whisking the sweat away from his face and chest as he settled in to the quiet pace of his breathing.
He wasn’t as upset as he felt he should be, abandoned in the dirt by his closest friend slowly pulling farther away from him. He thought Allison out of the picture meant more bro time, but the blossoming pressure of Alpha-Scott and college applications peeled them farther and farther apart. He was sad, but not destroyed. If anything, he felt slightly more at peace than he had in the months before with the entire Darach calamity.
Inhale, exhale, pushing another breath into the ether as he slid his arms behind his head, cushioning him as he felt his eyes close in the stillness of the night.

- His hands. He couldn’t steady his hands. Wring, wring, wringing them between each other, trying to massage the blood from his skin, from the caked up red in every nail bed. Every fidget, every shuffle felt like he was exacerbating the situation. Inhale, exhale. This wasn’t a lacrosse game. This wasn’t Scott crawling home embarrassed and bloody from his fledgling lycanthropy’s accidental rabbit massacre. This was serious, and he couldn’t focus. Stiles willed himself to pick up his feet to tread in the direction of the window in his dormitory room, only to circle back and wear down the floor one more invisible increment into the track he’d been pacing for the latter part of an hour....

- I decided to write this in pencil, knowing it would have to be transcribed onto a computer later because it seemed natural. I forgot how easy they are to use when time has given me so much technology, time has given me a computer. Natural seems the most appropriate thing to do when referencing a story about love. Love is something ironically so cliché and so important that I always take it for granted, like this beautiful piece of yellow painted wood with a small number two engraved into it. Like love, when using a pencil sometimes mistakes are made, but the eraser like time doesn’t fully cover them up ever.... [tags: A Story About Love]

- The Power of The Sea-Wolf Jack London’s novel, The Sea-Wolf, has many different interpretations. The story can be read as a combination of the naturalistic novel and the sentimental romance, both very popular around the turn of the century. London also brings into play literary naturalism, in which human beings are characterized as just another species in nature, subject to all of Her cosmic forces. The Sea-Wolf fits almost perfectly the archetypal pattern of an initiation story. Depth and interest are added to The Sea-Wolf by successfully integrating these three elements -- the combination of two popular genres, literary naturalism, and the initiation story....

The first one is the Russian folk tale "The wolf and the goat" and other one is the English folk tale "The wolf and the three kittens".

- Sea Wolf Wolf Larsen was a character in the book who never made it all the way through the book, but he tried very hard. He was a very strong, brutal man with almost no respect for human life. With all the people in the world, one dead person meant nothing to him. He was a patient man and usually kept himself under control. He was surprisingly smart and thoughtful for a pirate who lives on the sea. He loved the sea and knew many things about it, such as how to outwit his brother when he came near Wolf's boat....

- Transformation of Humphrey Van Weyden in Jack London’s The Sea Wolf Jack London’s The Sea Wolf is in some ways a philosophical text and a product of its time. The strain it puts on the reader between a social Darwinist and utilitarian perspective against that of a more idealistic one is great. Many times the character of Wolf Larsen is a more consistent articulator of the Darwinian position and seems to always be getting the upper hand argumentatively. However, it is due to a phenomenological outlook on the events presented within The Sea Wolf that the alternative becomes intelligible.... [tags: Sea Wolf]

- The Love Story Some of the elements in the love story have changed over time. In the ancient world and during the Middle Ages, love stories did not have happy endings, and they focused on love outside of social and economic status. This was an innovation at that time, because most marriages were arranged and the partners were of the same social class. Beginning in the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, love stories began to have happy endings, because marriage was coming to be rooted in feelings of truelove and couples came together by personal choice....
