Bonjour, Fanfiction members. I'll have you know that I am not French. hahaha.
Formerly known as xOhSweetInsanity. Don't get it twisted, I may have changed my Pen Name... but that doesn't mean I'm going to change how I act. Which is... competely insane and Torque obsessed, as you can see... but luckily, I'm managing to tame my obsession by changing my avatar at least... still though, don't get crazy. ;)
Great actor. You will be remember by the movies you were in, the people you played... and of course, The Suffering's own, Blackmore (and Torque). Rest In Peace.

Profile Update: 8/10/12: I have a lot of work to do. Fanfiction as well as Non-Fanfiction, I have to finish my summer reading project... it's not a lot... so I can put that aside to make some time for Fanfiction... really. As well as Fanfiction, I still have to finish writing the one-shot I was planning to do... Listen to the Rain, which I still did not start yet.
And I just accepted a story request (it was originally a one-shot request), but I decided to turn it into a story so it will be my first story request I ever took. I'm excited! So... readers... fanfiction-ers... keep a look out for a few things by xOhSweetInsanity... because I am coming to you with some new stuff.
I NEED SOME MORE INSPIRATION! RYBACK: FEED ME MORE! FEED ME MORE!
(I'm still looking to publish some of my original stuff as well... so don't think I forgot about those too!)
Profile Update: 6/28/12: Paparazzi down, Listen to the Rain to go. I published a new one-shot called 'Paparazzi' inspired by the likes of Lady Gaga, and her song, Paparazzi, not to mention The Suffering's 'Horace P. Gauge.' I don't know what's wrong with me. XD Lately, I've been inspired like crazy. Like a bomb just blew up in my head and here I am, spitting out one-shots. XD It's the strangest thing, I'm not used to this. (I think it's because of my lack of being on Fanfiction, updating, and just publishing things in general.) But yeah... I don't know what's wrong with me. I guess this is a good thing, to see that I'm writing some stuff. Haha.
But yeah, you can check out the one-shot, read it and lemme know what you think ya? It's a little crazy... (at least... I think so... reading it.) starring Punky and Miss Eve Torres. *snap snap* I felt like I had to throw that in there... I don't know... since her heel turn... every time I see her... I go... "Look at Miss Eve Torres" I sometimes throw her middle name in there... and then I throw in the *snap snap* because that's when I snap. XD Don't judge me...
Is anyone else loving the Fanfiction upgrade right now? (When you review, a new window doesn't pop up... it's like... literally, right below the story/chapter itself!) It's amazing!! I LOVE IT!!
Profile Update: Story Update: Hey ya, another profile update... concerning some of the one-shots/stories I'll be posting up soon. And hopefully, stories too... but here we go... (this is the story update, the progress of stories and how it's going or whatever...)
Listen to the Rain- Didn't start it yet. I need to listen to the song more to really get me going. It's a tragic one-shot, inspired by Evanescence song, "Listen to the Rain"
Paparazzi- Done. :)
I know I've been kind of away from Fanfiction, but now I just decided that I will go back to reviewing regularly like I normally do. I mean the only thing I've been focused on, coming onto Fanfiction, is getting these one-shots done... and not reviewing anything. (There's an exception... rkoviper... I always have to review her stuff you know?) But I want to review other writer's work... a writer I never normally review their work from... and that's something I'm looking to do right now, and I've made a good start yesterday, reading a one-shot. But yeah... here I go!! :D Time to put some smiles onto some writer's faces.
Profile Update: 6/24/12: I don't know why, but I was inspired today, weirdly by the likes of Lady Gaga as well as Horace P. Gauge from The Suffering. Oh my... what an odd mixture. Lady Gaga and Horace P. Gauge. So... with this being said, expect to see a rather odd and disturbing one-shot coming your way. I also look to publish 'Listen to the Rain' a one-shot inspired by Evanescence song, Listen to the Rain.
It's summer time and everyone on Fanfiction is probably gearing up to start updating and publishing more (assuming that most Fanfiction members are teens) as well as I am too. (Yesss, no summer school for me. I'm going to spend time on Fanfiction. YES!!) So here's what's happening...
I have decided to publish a story, a sequel to Snow White Queen called 'Blood and Chocolate' the title was actually inspired by a story I'm reading called 'Blood and Chocolate' following a girl dealing with life as part human part werewolf. (In a way, this actually makes sense regarding to Candice as she deals with life as part human and part Viper.)
Also I look to publish In My Psychotic Mind: Part Two a story following Randy Orton struggling to break free from the Viper as well as trying to tame his killer mind with revenge to be rid of Drew McIntyre. (If you can't really remember why, read the first story.)
And... that's it... I guess I'll be randomly inspired by strange things/events and soon after, find myself writing a one-shot of this strange inspiration. As of right now, (I was going to publish something tonight, but...) things are too hectic around here. I need some space...
I will be seeing you guys later. Buh-bye.
I actually have something to say regarding a review someone has made to a story. I'm not going to post it here on my profile, I'm going to be calm and as civil as possible before I'll be the first to lose my temper and blast whoever this person is for making a review, the way they did. It maybe critical, yeah, I'll give you that, whoever you are... but let me discuss the term: Rated M stories. (Now, I would've PMed this person, but this was an anonymous review. Not to any of my stories though, so don't go searching. XD)
Rated M stories are like Rated R, movies at least, in a way (or maybe even PG-13 movies... but... it's relevant to compare Rated M stories to Rated R movies...) You know those movies, Rated R movies that contain explicit sexual content, drug use, explicit use of language, blood/gore violence etc. etc. Any reader browsing fanfiction, can come across a Rated M story. One would stop and think, "Now wait a minute, this is a Rated M story." As reader you can't be 'close minded' when it comes to Rated M, stories. You have to know what to expect. You can't expect unicorns and ponies in a Rated M story, no, unless they are explicitly used in a way that's not mature. So yeah, don't just open up a Rated M story and expect everything to be clean and sharp. You're smarter than that.
And the term mature is what it is, Rated M stories are for mature content, and if you can't read mature content, why bother reading it at all? It's like a slash story, if you don't like slash, don't read. If you can't handle Rated M materials, don't read it.
You see, this is the problem with this world we are living in today. People don't take the time to think for themselves, we are so used to people telling us what to do (TELEVISION, RADIO NEWS, BASICALLY the MAINSTREAM MEDIA) what to think, what to act like, that we the people, don't have time to think for ourselves. That's the whole reason why I write this, because you have to have people WARN you of possible mature content in a Rated M story? Authors have to warn you what's to come in a Rated M story? They shouldn't have to warn you, because they expect to know that 'Hey, this is a Rated M story, for mature content. So if you can't handle it, don't read this.'
Speaking in general terms, it's true, we're like cattle, we are so used to being told what to do and what to think. And if you don't believe me when I say, that the mainstream media basically controls what you think, do me a favor. Sit outside (if it's a beautiful sunny day out like it is here, in the US.) sit alone in a room, TV off, no laptop, no music... just sit there. Because you know what happens when you do? You start... thinking. (ooohhh... )
And then, reading this review, it sounded like more of an insult to me, than constructive criticism. And that's what counts here on Fanfiction, constructive criticism. Not flaming or insulting an author.
But my whole entire point is, Rated M stories... readers... don't be so closed minded about Rated M stories. There are plenty of possibilities of what type of mature content might be shown in the story (you know them, I listed before, sexual content, violence, drug use, etc.) KNOW what to expect, and if you KNOW what to expect in a Rated M story, and can HANDLE the mature content fairly well, happy reading :) if not, then just don't read it. If it bothers you THAT much to not have the author warn you of specific content, don't read it. Simple as that.
Meet O.B.A.M.A, America's current president of the United States. :P
Who is Obama?
No the question is, what is O.B.A.M.A?
Well Obama is the President Of The United States. He said he was going to take troops out of Iraq and bring them home, and you might be asking yourself...where are the troops exactly? Arent they supposed to be coming home?? To the USA? To their families?
So Obama lied?
You might be thinking, "Yup. Because he send more troops to Iraq." So the question is again, who is Obama?
No, the question was what is O.B.A.M.A?
Obama is One Big Ass Mistake America. xD
Barack Obama= O.B.A.M.A
OBAMA! How do you feel giving foreigners jobs and not YOUR people of America? And you wonder why our economy SUCKS! What the f@#K? Ohh, wait, I know why! Because OBAMA is not a US born citizen, maybe that's why he's allowing people from Mexico to come to the U.S without being deported.
Obama supports gay marriage, because he is GAY!! A GAY PRESIDENT? Who CLAIMS to be a CHRISTIAN? What a phoney! (By the way, Christians don't hate Gay People. They just hate their lifestyle. There's a difference between hating someone, and hating how they actually live.)
Supports Abortion. (There is a reason why he supports this... *cough, cough* Look up, Georgia Guide stones. Look for the word, 'depopulation.' if (whatever website you're on) provides information on what the Georgia Guide Stones actually say.)
He is not a US born citizen. (He was born from Kenya, if I recall. I hate history, so I'm a little rusty with all things political. But I'm just stating, what I basically know.)
He's democratic. I've learned that, We The People, America, are supposed to be a republic government. (Don't believe me? Article 4, Section 4 of our Constitution, my fellow Americans.) And you shall be enlightened, because I, too, thought that we were supposed to be a democratic government. But look at it this way, democracy is... majority rules right? Let me put it like this...
If there was a vote to kill all white people and 60% of the population said 'Yes, let's kill white people (or yes, let's kill black people or any other specific race.)" and 40% of the population said 'No, No! Don't kill white people!" Then, since majority rules, all white people (or any other specific race being voted on,) would die.
... See what I'm saying now? We're supposed to be a republic, not a democratic, NO DEMOCRACY! And I've said this before, the Pledge of Allegiance even states that we are (and SUPPOSED TO BE) a republic, not a democratic country.
The Presidential race is on. I'm not 18 years old, I'm getting there, but I'm not exactly 18. However, if I was, I wouldn't know who to vote for. Mitt Romney? Or O.B.A.M.A? I'm pretty sure they'll both do a terrible job as a president, and that they'll only make matters worse for the country of the U.S.A. (Which by the way, does not stand for United States of America. U.S.A stands for United Slaves of America.)
Just thought I should include this for those of you who don't know exactly why, the U.S.A stands for United Slaves of America. You wanna know why?:
"You've been asleep so long that you never even noticed the change, got your mind hypnotized with their program lies ain't a thing that they do is strange. You believe what they tell you to believe, in the system, caught in the game. It's a Dark City out there, but you still don't care... fascinated by the fame." Ninja Scroll "Dark City"
America, what exactly has Obama done for the Country? ...
(Don't answer all at once... )

Cute Love Quotes (Randomly browsing online on Google images, I came across some cute quotes that I just had to share here, because they're true, and I can personally relate to some of them, and I'm sure you can too.)
There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept. Things we don't want to know but have to learn. And people we can't live without but have to let go.
When I met you...
Tell her how you admire her. When she's upset, hold her tight. Pick her over all the other girls you hang out with. Play with her hair. Pick her up, tickle her, and wrestle with her. Just talk to her. Tell her jokes. Bring her flowers. Just because... hold her hand and run. Just hold her hand. ...let her fall asleep in your arms. Tell her she looks beautiful. Look into her eyes and smile. kiss her on the forehead. Kiss her in the rain. If you want to be with her... tell her.
I can see it in your eyes...
Stranger in this lonely town.
You took my hand..
I'm trusting you to hold my heart
Even if I leave you now, and it break my heart,
You know that feeling... when you look at him and think.. "Wow I love him. But we're just friends". Or maybe when he looks at her it hurts so much sometimes. When your in love with him and he's in love with her. You love everything about him and he loves everything about her. You wasted all your 11:11 wishes on him. You kept it in for so long. No one knows how confused you are. Do you tell him you like him? Or do you keep it in, as usual? "It's confusing." or "It's complicated" is your answer when someone asks you what's wrong. When you look at them together, your eyes fill up with tears. Because you love him. You love him so much. And sometimes you just wish he knew.
If you love something let it go, if it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.

Censorship makes no damn sense. F@#K censorship.
Why Censorship makes no sense:
Credit goes to Ryan Higa for making these valid points. I'm just here presenting them because I agree with him, and I always wondered why for example, that it's okay to see women in bathing suits (Two piece bathing suits) but it's not necessarily okay to see them in their bra and panties. (From a guy's POV)
But Ryan Higa made a valid point when I watched one of his YouTube videos about how censorship makes no sense.
Take cursing for example. Now growing up, most of us are taught not to curse, but believe me, I'm not going to lie I do curse verbally, and when I write here, but for the most part I like to censor myself because I was taught that it was bad... but yeah, sometimes I can't help myself when I do.
But think about it, how does a word which in reality, is just a sound hurting anybody? If it's the meaning behind the word, then why is it okay to say the word 'hate' when you can't say the word 'fuck?'
You know when you were a little kid, and you went home crying... it's not because someone said a bad word, it's because they said, "I don't wanna play with you no more, you're ugly."
(This never happened to me, I'm just using Ryan Higa's example, as an example.)
And then, when you go to your parents they tell you, "Oh, well sticks and stones can break your bones, but words don't ever hurt you."
If our parents taught us this, then why do kids play with sticks and stones but when we tell our parents, "F@#K you, Dad/Mom!" You know what happens next, Dad or Mom get their belts and beats the shit out of you.
I too, agree with him here especially. But when I become a parent, I'm not going to censor much.
"Mom, where do babies come from?"
I'm going to be honest, is he/she hurt from it? No. If anything, my child is a lot smarter than any kid who'd have their parents tell them that a stork drop them off on their doorstep. Or take make it more realistic, I'm going to tell my kids that Santa Claus is not real, that way, they can be a lot smarter than the kid who was taught that Santa Claus was real, and goes on living in a fantasy world thinking that Santa Claus is actually real. :P (And other figments of a kids imagination, Easter Bunny, The Boogeyman... XD lol)
Censorship makes no sense. It's not just cursing either, why does a Rated R movie have sex and cursing in it, while PG 13 which has killing and explosions in it? To think about it, they are equally bad.
Why is it okay for a woman to be seen in bathing suits, but if they are seen in underwear it's inappropriate?
Why is it okay to see man boobs, but when it comes to women we have to censor them? What's the difference?
I can live by these rules too, but does anyone feel that censorship makes no sense? I hope Ryan Higa, as well as myself, aren't the only ones who think this way.
Just some random thoughts. :) Have either one of these thoughts ever crossed your mind???

Carmen: Times like this its hard to know what to say. You walked the line T, you stayed true. And happiness I know proves you were right, even what happened to me, the ties that bind us are too strong. No one else can compete and I mean it this time when I say, I never want us to be apart again.
Jordan: This is a pleasant surprise...I was hoping to see the inner sanctum of a grade-a sociopath, but I've landed a genuine article instead. I want to know all about you and what defines your dementia.
The Creeper: Shut up you little whore!
Jordan: What the?!?!?!
The Creeper: I will gut you! And you will beg for it!
Jordan: Like hell!
Jordan goes up a ladder, and The Creeper approaches Torque*
The Creeper: What do you have in there, Torque? She gonna find out your secrets? You know thats how these bitches work. They slide up in close, and try to suck your life away. Be careful she doesnt empty you. What's that little cunt up to anyway?
Torque enters a crack house, with Kyle and the tv monitors go on and Dr. Killjoy appears on the screen*
Dr. Killjoy: Torque, Torque, Torque, always a pleasure, yet seeing you is still so...bittersweet.
Dr. Killjoy: We have so much ground to cover, and I simply cannot do it with all this rabble in the way. Lets see here.
Torque approaches a drug addict*
Dr. Killjoy: Ever see the effects of purified narcotics on the human brain? Best to have a look inside while they're still alive... (This is why Dr. Killjoy is crazy.)
With a hallucination, the drug addicts head pops off.*
Dr. Killjoy: Ah yes, most fascinating.
Torque approaches another drug addict*
Dr. Killjoy: Good medical subjects are so hard to find.
The woman, the drug addict was sitting down when she passed out and died due to another hallucination*
Dr. Killjoy: Eh, they just keep dying on me.
Torque approaches ANOTHER druggie*
Dr. Killjoy: Such a fragile thing, the human mind. Hardly takes any effort to make it all...snap.
Another hallucination occurs, and the druggies head pops off.*
Dr. Killjoy: You see? Quite sad.
Torque approaches Kyle.*
Dr. Killjoy: Hmm, this one seems to have a delusional fondness of you, most curious. Best to leave him alive, see what therapeutic benefit he might have.
Such BIG words!!
The Suffering (FIRST ONE)
Hermes: *breaths in deeply* He...is...gone. Now...its just you...*breaths out* and me...
Torque leaves without saying a word to Hermes who floats in the gas chamber where his death took place*
Hermes: We will meet again...later. I look forward to it.
Torque and Warden Elroy are seen at Eastern*
The Creeper: Its a tight space in here...watch out, you might slip and land on something...sharp. Come here little boy. Now you're a little girl. I dressed you up so nice, and now I'm going to bleed you.
Dying Inmate: Help me...please help...I'm bleeding..
The inmate falls to the ground*
Torque approaches the dead body but is interrupted and is knocked down by the appearence of The Creeper, who has his dead women hanging from his jacket.*
The Creeper: Feel good? Ready for your turn?
Torque goes downstairs and stops when a hallucination occurs. Blackmore runs up toward him when something happens. A pile of dead bodies (they actually look like dead bodies of Cory and Malcolm) appear before Torque and is so startled he falls back.*
Blackmore: Let the blood wash it all away.
The phone is ringing and Torque hurries to go and answer it*
The Creeper *posing as a female disguising his voice sounding like a girl: And what are you wearing you big stud? Ready to take it off so I can see? You look good letting it all out. You want to know what I'm wearing? Well I just got this coat, and if you saw inside...hah! hah! hah! You'd see my collections of whores, men may be idiots but girls are the true parasites!
Weird...The Creeper is...weird...
In Abbott, Torque leaves Dallas to go collect useful materials such as bullets and guns, he goes downstairs to kill a slayer when he hears Cory's voice.*
Cory: When are you going to let me out? Come on I learned my lesson! Dad!
Torque realizes there's a door to where Cory is calling him from he goes over to open it as a hallucination occurs*
Cory: You never were my Dad, not really!
phone rings again and Torque goes to answer it* (I promise, no more phone sex from The Creeper)
Stranger: I am here for the sole purpose of your death. Look into my eyes and see the revelation of your demise. Feel the pain that stares at the center of your heart
Malcolm: Mom said not to call me that!
Cory: That's what you is!
Malcolm: Mom!! ...Mom, Daddy's here.
Wow, Cory. Terrible English!!
Blackmore: Hey there, my little one. Come over here.
(Torque (as a little kid) hesistates.)
Blackmore: Come on now. I have to educate you.
(Torque scoots over toward Blackmore)
Blackmore: Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?
Torque: ...Happy. (Awwwww!! Torque as a little kid is just too cute!! I'm sure everyone wants to be happy! Good for you Little Torque!!)
Blackmore: Happy's not good enough. You've got to be a player. Then people start to respect you. You understand the difference?
Torque: I don't know.
Blackmore: That's OK, my little one. I've got years to teach you.
Woman: Who you talkin to? (To Torque)
(Torque turns around to face Blackmore who's disappeared.)
That's the cutest thing I've ever heard. "Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?" Happy :) But it's a shame that Torque didn't get his wish. :(( Thanks to Blackmore. :P
Evil Extended Ending:
Jordan: Need a hand with that Black?
Blackmore: Oh yes, girl. You're the only one who can see the real me. All the best games get better with an inside man... even better with an inside woman.
Jordan: You know it's always better when you play dirty with girls. He's (Torque) gone right?
Blackmore: For good.
Blackmore grabs Jordan, pulling her back partially over the ledge of the Garvey Children Home.
Jordan: Cuz you're the only part of him I ever liked...
Blackmore hauls Jordan in for a kiss and the game ends there.
Torque enters his apartment home with Carmen citing her memories, as well as her concerns.
Carmen: Oh, T. I remember being so happy at how good you were doing with the boys. And I think I know who took that all away from us.
Torque steps in the hallway, when Carmen speaks with urge in her voice.
Carmen: Please, T. We don't have a lot of time.
Torque hallucinates when he sees his two dead sons, Cory and Malcolm, running. Malcolm apparently has something of Cory's, as he is being chased by his older brother.
Malcolm: Can't catch me!
Cory: Come on, Malcolm. Give it back.
The hallucination ends when Carmen speaks to her husband again.
Carmen: The bedroom T. Don't you remember where it is?
Torque instead follows Cory and Malcolm into the T.V room when he has another hallucination.
Carmen: T, this won't go away until you face it.
Malcolm: But I don't want to go to sleep.
Cory: Dad! Can we just stay up for a little bit longer?
The hallucination ends again, with Carmen speaking.
Carmen: Right over here, in your room.
Torque goes to his room and kicks it open.
Carmen: Good T. This is the place. It's in your closet. Open it up and see what you find.
Torque goes to his closet, opens it up to find two letters. One from Miles, and the other from Carmen. Carmen tells him to read the two letters, he does, and Carmen presents Torque with something that she found.
Carmen: Is it coming back T? All of it? Maybe you're ready, I found this. This you need to see.
The Suffering: Ties That Bind: Dr. Killjoy's Documents (Dont ask why I am doing this, I am bored. And that's one way of making my profile extremely long. xD Because I'm random like that. :P) This is told in Dr. Killjoy's POV. So...yeah...
Torque (file: 61106-c): Distinctly traumatized, impossibly conflicted, horribly scarred, and certainly deeply disturbed. Understanding Torque's dementia remains a constant challenge. Torque may have realized what happened to his family after the episode on Carnate, but his issues run far deeper that can be resolved in a few sessions in which I have worked with him. Now he faces a truly defining moment as he returns to Baltimore. This is the city where he was raised in the harshest environments in the Garvey Children's Home, where he met his enchanting wife Carmen, and where she subsequently met her most tragic end. His fanatical quest for resolution against the grand manipulator, Blackmore will truly test his ability to put the demons of his past to rest. My extensive training tells me I will need to orchestrate some challenges to truly test his inner strength. I've always found the best therapy sessions are those where there is something at stake for my patients and what better to put on the line then life itself? And why not? With Torque's profoundly deep troubles, it is doubtful he would even want to continue to live if his problems could not be solved.
Carmen (file: 63948-h): I do hate to be petty, but don't you just hate the beautiful people? Surely Carmen has provided the one element of stability in Torque's achingly tragic life, and without her, one can only imagine what gutter Torque would be inhabiting today. But sometimes her righteousness can even make me sick. Nevertheless, she does have her moment of weakness and her temper can be intense indeed. She didn't always stand with Torque through the thick and the thin; when he was in prison with Miles. She divorced my dear patient, leaving him so very alone when he needed her the most. But Torque never gave up, using Carmen as a beacon of hope even when she said she wanted nothing to do with him. Now, to have any chance of continued mental well being, Torque must learn he can truly count on one person. And with Carmen dead, Torque will need to realize that the deceased can only complicate matters for the living.
Blackmore (file: 57931-k): Now here is a most interesting case of study. A man of iron convictions and unstoppable determination, Blackmore has established a criminal enterprise that holds Baltimore firmly in its grip. Having come from much the same upbringing as Torque, Blackmore knew that to go far he would not let petty morals stand in his way. Shrewdly intelligent, he keeps himself free from the watchful eye of law enforcement by never personally breaking any laws. In so many ways, Blackmore is the polar opposite of Torque. Not physically violent himself, he prefers to always have underlings carry out his wishes. It is his inner self that is horribly violent in nature. Despite his determination and even with all the success he has achieved, his one peculiar eccentricity is his near obsession with Torque. For example, when Torque was sent to prison, Blackmore was driven to follow Torque inside to keep an eye on the man he hates so much. It is as if Blackmore lives to always be one step behind Torque making sure his tenuous grip on his sanity becomes weaker and weaker.
Miles (file: 22001-m): Physical insecurity. This is Miles' true Achilles' heel, at least mentally speaking. He has overcompensated by becoming the man who has all the answers, always on the inside, aware of every machination going on around him. But to survive in the harsh life to which he was born, Miles must ally himself with someone with a stronger physical presence, and for years that person has been Torque. They have been the closest of friends for more than a decade, Miles able to come up with the plans and Torque able to execute them. They have managed to stay on the right side of the law while struggling to claw their way out of poverty they were both born into. The only time the pair ran afoul of law enforcement was when they fell right into one of Blackmore's schemes; while in Miles' drinking establishment, Torque was tricked into a fight which ended in a man's death, and both Miles and Torque were sent to prison because of it. Miles has sworn that they will not be tricked again, and it's because of that incident that Miles hates Blackmore more than Torque does.
Jordan (file: 6589-b): There are those who are good and those who are evil. And then there are those who are merely selfish to the point where the distinction becomes irreverent. Since losing her parents during her formative years, Jordan has been obsessed with power and immortality. She has long since given up caring who might be hurt by her quest. Her research organization, which most know only as "The Foundation," will stop at nothing to gain information about the hideous creatures that have been manifesting themselves in isolated incidents across the globe for years. It is only recently, on Carnate and now in Baltimore, that the creatures are showing up in large numbers. Jordan was wise to see this day coming and to handle it she built up the paramilitary branch of The Foundation to help contain the threat. Jordan dreams that her people will understand the creatures through analytical study and thus harness some power they possess. Pity she does not understand the forces at work here, and Jordan will learn soon enough that this is a power that cannot be acquired. It must be thrust upon you through death, or, in the unique case of Torque, it can be result of the darkest of life stories.
Blackmore is a freak. Miles and Jordan's case studies are coming up soon. For now, continue on scrolling down on my LONG profile. :) Or read some of my stories, and review them. Highly appreciated by myself. :D
The Suffering: Ties That Bind: Carmen's Diary
I never threw any of it out. Some of my girlfriends, now they get mad at their boyfriend, or husband or whoever. They throw away everything that reminds them of him. Burn it up, tear it to pieces whatever. As mad as I got a T, I never threw out any of the things that made me remember him. Part of me wanted to forget he ever happened. But another part of me, wouldnt let go of the hope that it would all work out, in the end.
Page 2: Cory and Malcolm
Cory and Malcolm mean everything to me. And its because of them I get so mad at T. I just want what's best for them, and sometimes I dont know if their father realizes how important he is to their happiness. But T's been doing a good job with them since I moved to Manhattan. Now I missed them more then I ever imagined. And I know I have to be with them again, and if that means taking T back well...stranger things have happened.
Page 3: Miles
Miles is probably T's best friend. He's smart and I think he has good intentions but he always seems to be getting into trouble and bringing T down with him. He owns a bar called 'The Underground' and that is where T got into that fight that send him to jail. I always wondered what part Miles played in all that. I tried so hard to keep T away from influences that'll bring us down but I didnt have much luck.
Page 4: Eastern
I remember the smell of Eastern even from the outside. It seemed like forever they kept us waiting outside in the rain. Standing there, seeing the other women visiting their men...*sighs* I just got MAD!! How can T have brought us this low? When I got inside, it was so cold. I remember the look on T's face when I told him it was over. That I needed a divorce. He looked at me like I betrayed him. And I told him, he had done it to all of us.
Page 5: Torque's Cell
T once drew a picture of his cell in Eastern and sent it to me. He said he didnt want my pity, he just wanted me to understand what he was going through. While he was locked away, he had a long time to reflect on what had happend, and I think he learned a few things. When he came out, he was a new man. Now the boys came first in his life, I hated he ever went to Eastern. But the way he came out, almost made it worth it.
Page 6: The Garvey Children's Home
The Garvey Children's Home sounds so innocent but I think it was filled with little monsters. T never told me much about this place, but I learned about it when he would wake up screaming at night. He'd be yelling that he just want to be left alone. One day when we were out for a walk we passed it by accident and T stopped cold. He turned around and said we had to go home. If there was one building I could burn to the ground.
Page 7: The Creature
T has this thing and I never seen anything like it. I mean anyone can tell you that he has some problems controlling his anger but this is way beyond that. When he was working at the gym sparring one time, I saw him lay into some guy like a madman!! After a minute, T seemed to snap out of it, pulling back just in time. If he hadnt I think he mightve killed that other guy. It's like he'd become something...something else entirely.
Page 8: Blackmore
Blackmore. I hate even writing his name down. Now I know, it was him. Whether T was guilty with what happened at Miles's bar, I'm not sure. But I know it wouldnt of happened without Blackmore. And the things Blackmore said to me, about the boys?! It's one thing being King Drug Dealer or whatever he is, but Blackmore takes evil to another level. He's almost too evil to be real, and I never even seen him in the flesh.
Page 9: The Gazebo
The Gazebo is where T and I met. And I know it's silly but, just looking at a photo of it makes me wonder. What if that gazebo had been somewhere else? Somewhere far from Baltimore, far from the junkies, far from Blackmore. What if it had been in some small town somewhere out in the country? A million years ago. We've would've stepped out of the gazebo into a world that would let us have our life. Have our dream, have our happiness. I still wonder...
Reading this, kind of makes me want to cry. Poor Torque... :(
Another way of making my profile long... more Suffering... XD
I've enclosed the divorce papers, where you need to sign is marked. I'm sorry it's come to this, but I have to do what's right for the boys. The worst part is that you won't even own up to what you did. You say Blackmore set you up? He's a smart man who wants to get his way but come on T, maybe you need to look closer to find the real problem. Think about that.
Love (even now),
I'm getting close my man. The more I learn about Blackmore, the more I'm sure he's got to go. He's got half the corner in East Baltimore locked up, pushing that junk of his. He owns the streets. So why's he playing us? Trying to drive Carmen away, framing us in my bar, riding us in Eastern. I wish I was wise to (KNOW) why he wants you so bad. What'd you do to him?
"Canst thou draw the leviathan with a hook?" - The Hobo
"Your blood be upon your own heads." - Some Hobo following Torque... XD
"I ain't on your leg." - Carl
"What the fuck are you?" - Carl
"Carl, what the fuck you doing man? Carl?" - Carl's friend
"Nothing makes sense T, I need you to explain it to me." - Carmen
"And what the fuck is up with you my man? First I hear this, I can't believe- I say no way... not MY MAN TORQUE! That cracker bleeding down in the basement... he told me what's what... and he got no reason to lie! My brain ready to pop! Nobody make this up! Nobody ever say that you..." *gunshot* - Miles to Torque seconds away before he is killed.
"You still with me Torque? My man, we in this together baby! Till the end... for always and forever." - Miles (R.I.P.)
"Why do you think Carmen left you? You weren't enough of a player for her..." -Blackmore whispering in Torque's ear, pissing him off.
"You're the only one even letting him play this game. Without you, he's nothing." - Blackmore to Torque about Miles defending himself, and Torque.
"Now you're gonna play on my team. You maybe tough... but I'm smart. And smart always wins." -Blackmore to Torque.
"Bluster is the tool of the sucker playa." -Blackmore
(Oh my gosh, I just remembered something. It's ironic that Micheal Clarke Duncan suffered a heart attack. At least... I found it ironic. O_O He's still alive, someone saved him. He's recovering from what I've heard. But with Micheal Clarke Duncan playing both Blackmore AND Torque in The Suffering: Ties That Bind, me... being so obsessive about the game... I don't know... this just kind of weirded me out. I'm glad Black- I mean... Micheal Clarke Duncan... is okay. :)
"No, wait! Before you put one in my head, hear me out. I know things started badly for us... but I got you this far. And I can take you the distance. All the way to Blackmore... together I say we're unstoppable. Let's do this!" - Jordan promising she'll take Torque all the way to Blackmore.
"He seems eccentric. But harmless..." - Carmen, attempting to keep Torque on the right path. (Good/Angel)
"He will ruin you." - Blackmore attempting to make Torque kill Ranse. (Evil/Devil voice)
"He's not what he seems." - Carmen
"Lay him out! Splatter his brains! Kill! Kill! Kill!" -Blackmore attempting to make Torque kill Ranse.
"His kind locked you up... and made you lose so much." - Blackmore convincing Torque to kill the Warden. (Me: I got something to say... BLACKMORE... correction... if it wasn't for you... Torque would've never went to jail... :) TeeHee)
"He could be a fair man." - Carmen
"The warden must die."
"He's tired of the killing." - Carmen
"His kind tried to kill you. Kill or be killed." -Blackmore
Just some random Suffering quotes I can think of on the top of my head.
Ranse Truman Message (The Suffering & The Suffering: Ties That Bind) One way to make my profile a lot more longer, and I don't know... there's just something about Ranse's notes that have some meaning behind them, whether it's relating to the two games or real life.
