The Days of a Princess“Come on, Arsinoe!” My older brother called to from outside my room. “The epirians will be here soon, and father wants them to be greeted by a royal procession.”
King Pyrrhus came to Egypt to marry my older half-sister, Antigone. She is my mother’s daughter by a greek noblemen. She is also future queen of Epirus.
After I finish dressing, I run out of my room. “You ready, Arsinoe!” Ptolemy asked me. “Ready as ever!”
We walked to the litter. They carried us to the harbour. The harbour was crowded with alexandrians, all hoping to see the epirians arrive. Of course everyone made way for our litter. The royal family all were first ready to see the ships arrive.
Ptolemy and I walked with great grace as we took our place amongst our numerous siblings.
As Pharaoh, father took many wives and concubines. But with him today were his favorites. My mother Berenice was the formal
Chapter Five of Nefertiti: The Legacy "Why isn't it here?" I was going to find a nice book to read in the Per Medjat but I found Baraka, Tut and Ankhe on top of each other's shoulders. "Be careful, Baraka!" Ankhe screamed from the top. Though Baraka was the most
muscular, he struggled under the force of Tut and Ankhe on top of him.
"Okay, kids. What are you looking for?" I asked. The human ladder wavered. "We'll, Aunty we are looking for..." And then the human ladder fell down before Ankhe could finish. "Thanks a lot Baraka." Ankhe said with her voice ful, of sarcasm. "We'll maybe you've been having to many dinner in the Great Hall your majesty!"
I helped them get up. "What are you looking for?" I asked after they were all standing and dusted off. "We are looking for some records about the royal treasury."
"Why don't you just ask Maya?" The skilled treasurer was a wealthy man .of great talents. A man my sister hired to help her fix Kemet's broken economy, he was Overseer of The Treasury and a Ti
Chapter Three of Nefertiti: The LegacyShortly after Tut's coronation, the first thing Tut prioritized to do was make renovations to a temple. In the Per Medjat, he called on the regents and Ankhes. But I stayed to watch the younger children.
I had missed having my sons by my side everyday. But Tut was a Pharaoh now and Baraka had joined the Kap. They were growing up.
But I liked spending my days with my little nieces. Nefertash was very smart. She liked to read and was a very educated. Neferneferure was a little different. She was very stubborn, just like Nefertiti. She was also a great seller of things and loved money. She could've been a merchant if not for her rank. She actually had Djedi sell her golden bracelets for a handsome price. Though she was a Princess's and free from all sorts of debt, Nefre loved seeing every gold piece of deben. It wasn't like she intended to use it, but instead to look at it.
Sati was a playful child. She also liked to help sight her nieces: Meritaten-Tasherit and Ankhes
Chapter Two of Nefertiti: The Legacy It was ten days after the funeral procession that we would be having two celebrations. Tut's marriage and his coronation. I was in Ankhes' rooms preparing her. My mother and Ipu were there, helping her.
But my niece wasn't so inexperienced in the ways of marriage. This was her second marriage. When she was just ten-years old, she married her father. At eleven she was impregnated. A dangerous time for a young girl. But she had survived the birth and so did the little girl.
Now she would marry Tut. And be Queen of Kemet. But I don't think my niece was so excited.
"Why does there have to be a ceremony. Why can't I just go to Tut's wing of the palace and lay with him?" Her bluntness was rewarded with a pinch on the elbow from my mother. "You aren't no harem girl or some common women. You will be Queen of Kemet."
Ipu did her make up. She crushed green malachite for her eyes. She then put a nice green sheath on her. Than a Nubian wig. "You look magnificent.
Chapter One of Nefertiti: The LegacyIt was a year since I found my sister and niece, dead. Killed by the Aten priest. Seventy days she sat in House of The Dead. And now she would be buried in the Valley of The Kings. She was a Pharaoh.
Hundreds of people. From all over Kemet traveled here to witness the burying of the Pharaoh and Queen.
Leading the funeral procession was the heirs. Nefertiti's daughter Ankhesenamun and my adopted son, Tutankhamun. They held each others hands. They would comfort each other.
My mother had stayed to console my youngest niece, Setepenre. She had cried and cried. Poor child.
When we reached outside the tomb, the High Priest handed the adzes to Tut and Ankhe. They pointed it to the mouths of their predecessors. They said the sacred words and then, the High Priest led us into the tomb.
The tomb of Meritaten was first. I looked at an inscription of her. Great Royal Wife Meritaten, Beloved of her Lord. A priest swung the lamps for us to see. The draw
The Day of TroubleIf I told anyone this now, they would laugh in my face, but I was a very small cub.
My half-brothers and sisters were all between two or three weeks older than me, but still I was the smallest cub.
This made my mother very attentive towards me. She hid me away from the pride. Honestly mother trusted no one. Especially the lionesses.
“They are not my pride-sisters.” My mother growled to my father in one of his attempts to see me. It was traditional for a lioness to chase her cubs father for the first weeks after birth. He soon got to see me when I was a month old.Though, I was small and couldn’t speak the tongue, I could understand all that was said.
“You should get to know them. Then they might listen to you.” Father said, during one of his visits. “They should listen to me because I am the Queen. But they spite me! I know what they say about me.” Mother hissed at him. Her claws were unsheathed when she got angry. It
The [Valid Points] of Feminist Critics in Gaming
Ever look at the arguments made by SJW “gamers” that defend feminist critics?
It doesn’t matter if [insert feminist here] didn’t play those games or that she stole “lets play”
footage or that she's said herself that she's not a gamer.. at the end of the day, she makes
"valid points" proving that gaming is indeed sexist!
So it got me thinking bout the old "Game Theory" channel.. and how they love to over-examine
games to come up with believable conclusions.
Basically, if you try hard enough.. you can make all kinds of “valid points” to fit any agenda.
Giant of the SkiesThe Panthalassa Ocean. Around since the time of the Permian. It still holds Mesozoic life of abundance. But here they are teeming with those flying reptiles, the pterosaurs. This programme, is going to follow one such pterosaur, on his last journey, of his life.
Inland. The arid plains next to the lagoon in Crato, Brazil. This holds a unique population of pterosaurs. Feeding on the fruits from bushes are Tupandactylus. These giant crested pterosaurs are mainly terrestrial, and are specialized for this arid climate. However, we have to leave the Crato Lagoon, and fly out to the Panthalassa Ocean.
This ocean holds the worlds best fishing grounds, and this attracts the attention of one such sea pterosaur. A Tropeogenathus flies above. The biggest pterosaur on Earth at this time, with an 8-metre wingspan. He folds his wings, and dives right into water, and into a bait ball of fish. He is joined by several others and flaps his wings underwater, diving right through the fish, mouth wide open
The Blue Past Sequence 34Those rivers hold much bigger animals than Atractosteus africanus. They also are home to a true giant, the largest carnivorous dinosaur that has ever existed. The top of a slender snout appears out of the murky water and the animal takes a breath, spraying salt from its nostrils as it does so. As the creature dives back into the water a massive, colorful sail cuts through the water’s surface.
An Asteracanthus searches for clams and other bivalves in the muddy seafloor, just as a massive crocodile-like snout grabs the shark. The predator surfaces. This is a Spinosaurus aegyptiacus, by far the largest predatory dinosaur ever. But this theropod is different from most others. It hunts not on land, but in the water. The Spinosaurus climbs ashore, revealing its bizarre anatomy. The weirdest part are its legs, which are unusually short for an animal of this size. As if that wasn’t strange enough, its entire body is elongated. How does this creature even walk? The answer lies in it
TormentaEstoy sola en casa, ignorando el angustiado ruido de la lluvia que oigó afuera. En mi cuarto estoy, sentada en el suelo encojida de piernas y sujetanfolas con las manos. Estoy sola en casa, intentando ignorar el angustiado ruido de la lluvia que oigo afuera.
Oigo de repente granizo golpeando los cristales de las ventanas de toda la casa... ese ruido me desconcerta... me asusta.. haciendo que me encoja mas y mas.
La cola de mono esta apoyada en el suelo inmovil, lo unico que pude hacer era abrazar con fuerza mis 2 peluches: el de Goku y el de Mikey. Empieza a sonar relampagos... truenos.. maldito estruendo.. me entra el panico, el miedo.. quiero que todo pase ya..
Solo soy una sayajin que tiene miedo de una simple tormenta, bajo la cabeza hundida en mis pensamientos.
Escuchó golpes en mi puerta que provienen de fuera, acompañados por una voz
-¡Evana! ¡Evana!- la voz gritaba mi nombre.
Es de noche, y la tormenta progresa con ese espantoso ruido. Al menos el grani
Tawashi's city history----------[Tawashi city history from founding to present]----------
Tawashi was founded as a refugee town after the end of world war two and was built 41 Kilometers north of mount Fuji. The city it's self was built around Oshiro military school which soon became the citys academy.
Two years after the City was found the new industrial district was completed across the river of the main city which with the population explosion the town had grown into a city of 40,000 people and still on the rise. The new district housed five factory's at first with two more under way and 6 warehouse's. The factorys would be used to produce Shoes, Books and Wooden toys. Along with one of them being a saw mill because of the nearby forest.
The population of Tawashi was at the highest at about 59,000 people and the people were feeling safe und
Land of Giants, Version 2 (Final Version)The sun rises over the land of giants. We begin in Argentina, home of the two biggest dinosaurs of their kind. Forests and ash cover the landscape. It is quiet. But not for long. A herd of gigantic titanosaurs are walking. The ground shakes in fear from them. The biggest are 40 metres long, 20 metres tall, and 90 tonnes. With them so big, they have no natural predators. Except one. It is hiding in the shadows. It is a Mapusaurus. The biggest land predator on Earth. 13 metres long and 8.5 tonnes, bigger than Tyrannosaurus. And it isn't alone. They hunt in gangs. This one is seven strong, and they are waiting until much of the herd is in view. So they rest, waiting. The titanosaurs know they are here, but also known that they won't attack right now.
Midday, and the pack leader sends out a roar. It is time. They all stand up, yawn, and stretch. Time to hunt. They begin to stalk the herd. They won't attack fully grown adults, but subadults are good sized. Unfortunately, the adults rattle a
Attempt at First PersonIt was a cold, Autumn evening and I was bounding down the street, twirling my cane around in my white gloved hand. Everything was swell and splendid despite how crisp and terribly dry the air was. Oh how joyful I felt, how blissful! That was when I came across a pub. The pub was a common place, where most of the peasants went to drink away their sorrows and forget their troubled lives.
...I'd show those peasants more pity of only they made my morning biscuits right...
But that isn't the point! The point is, I, Sir Reginald, got the brilliant idea to actually step foot inside that terribly filthy place! A choice I regret to this day, but I went inside out of pure curiosity. I looked around, noticing that not a single person was inside this pub besides the bartender. I cautiously took another step in, my newly-polished shoes clicking against the wooden flooring. The pub was disgusting! Layers of dust and grime polluted the corners, crumbs were scattered on the table and floor, and the cu
Doug (the sword guy)My response to a Craigslist ad wherein Doug was looking for a new friend to sword fight with..........
Me: Are you Doug the sword guy?
Doug: If not, that's an awesome name. But yeah.
Me: I suppose.
Would you classify your fighting style as a medieval knight or a stealthy ninja?
Doug: I like a combination of both. You interstes in practicing?
Me: I have a sword I purchased from a Ren Fair. I bought it to help reclaim my honor after I was sexually accosted by an evil Elf and his friend. Him and this level 9 Orc Mage, which is rare I know, had their way with me in a barrel of stagnant mead.
I'm looking for a partner to engage in a LOTR type quest to reclaim my honor.
How are you at casting spells? I promise plenty of spoils, wenches and parties in ornate castles.
Doug: I excel at many water to beer spell. Where you located.
Me: Hmmm. Quite Christlike.

Cleopatra's storyChapter One
The doors opened as Pharaoh came in. Wearing a gauzy shawl and a elaborate kilt he showed his wealth. Surrounded by the Macedonians Greeks of Egypt, he looked out of place with his dark tanned skin. Followed by him was the two royal women of Egypt: His wife and his mother. The Queen-Mother and his wife. The Queen was wearing a little headress crown. It represented the horns of the Apis bull, Amun's earthly incarnation and it had little golden beads castigating from thread so thin it was almost invisible. The Queen's light brown hair looked orange in the bright light. The Queen-Mother herself was dressed in the ancient Egyptian styles, she looked like a scene from Nefertari's temple. They all looked like gods.
After the royal adults took there seat on the dais. Then the dinner party began. The Pharaoh had much feast in the days of his reign. He had no reigned for 14 years and was now 30 years old. His birth day next week would rival this feast. He danced happy at the t
Twelve Moments In The Dead Of Summer1. The sunlight glistens on her wet skin as she's walking towards the beach. He has never seen anything so beautiful in his life and even if the words seem to dry up in his throat, he knows what he is going to do next.
2. It hasn't rained for months now so it only takes a small spark from the cigarette to set the undergrowth on fire. On the first sign of fire they panic and run, never to look back but to remember years later, in nightmares, the crazy old man who lived in the shack nearby and was never seen since.
3. They lay together on the grass, watching the sun slowly go down behind the treeline. He takes her hand, old, wrinkled and frail into his, and whispers: "I would give up everything I have for one more summer like this". She responds: "Darling, you already did that years ago". They burst into giggles, just like the one he was supposed to take her dancing for the first time and got lost on the way, and it seems that all these years haven't changed anything at all.
