I am a HUGE Star Wars and Lord of the Rings geek, and I believe we are all the main characters of our own fairy tale.

Message from Writer

As Beren looked into her eyes
Within the shadows of her hair,
The trembling starlight of the skies
He saw there mirrored shimmering.
Tinuviel the elven-fair,
Immortal maiden elven-wise,
About him cast her shadowy hair
And arms like silver glimmering.

Long was the way that fate them bore,
O'er stony mountains cold and grey,
Through halls of iron and darkling door,
And woods of nightshade morrowless.
The Sundering Seas between them lay,
And yet at last they met once more,
And long ago they passed away
In the forest singing sorrowless.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

Questions

    Why are humans so interested in soulmates? What biological or social purpose does it serve to believe in only one special "other" that can make you happy? Statistically, soulmates don't exist. Out of the 7,714,576,923 billion people on this planet, the probability that nearly everyone lives at right place at the right time to meet and marry their "soulmate" is very near impossible. In truth, there are most likely hundreds- maybe thousands of people living across the world...

A Dual Faced God

FREE WRITING

For some I am a beginning, for many I am an end.
I am the architect of empire, and the doom of civilization
Through me men are made their best...or their worst.
In me heroes are forged, and criminals are discovered
I give man work, but kill those who would take it
I am the ultimate catalyst of technology, and the ultimate cause of poverty
Statues are erected in my honor, though cities are laid waste for my sake
I...

I am about to tell you the story of a boy
Life for this boy was good as far as he was concerned.
Other than some trials he faced, he was successful in most of his endeavors
Variety was abundant, as he tried to learn skills and have experiences
Ecstasy was not known to him despite this, for he knew something was missing
Yearningly, he would often search the stars, never knowing for what
One night as he was doing...

    How do you unlearn how to ride a bike once you're on it? How can you forget your favorite hiking trail when you've walked it a hundred times? How can you bear to see someone you love and not embrace them? I supposed you just have to learn how to take a bottle, tighten the cap, and shove it in the closet. Don't worry about how much room there is, maybe someday the cabinet will burst, but that...

Two Roofs

Sometimes when I am lonely, I dive.
I dive deep through the mind, space, and that which the world thinks makes us alive. 
When I have dove deep enough, I find the creature.
It is mysterious and shifting. Ugly and beautiful. It is something I can never understand, yet it is my greatest teacher. 
Sometimes my courage can be gathered up by the sorrow and I inquire of it.
"Why?" I ask, "How could you do this? Nothing is right,...

Dreams

    I awoke, and the first thing I noticed was that I was falling. Except...it didn't feel like falling, because I couldn't tell if I was actually moving down. It felt as if I was falling in a spherical motion, constantly changing direction and speed. I couldn't tell though because I couldn't see... or could I see too much? Thousands of colors, images, and patterns raced across my vision every second. The immense myriad of sights was changing at such a...
