Author has written 4 stories for Naruto, Harry Potter, Misc. Books, Book X-overs, and Bleach.
Name: you can call me Shimmer.
Age: somewhere in between 10 and 100
Location: Island of noneya, noneya business
Gender: take a guess. I mean, come on, '-chan' is in my username
Personality: ehhh... kinda like Kuchiki Rukia, but with elements of Mitarashi Anko, Kurosaki Ichigo, and Hitsugaya Toshiro (and perhaps a bit of Yuffie Kisaragi).
--Note: Despite the fact I wish I could, I own none of the mangas/animes/books/shows/movies/etc that I write fanfics for. Or any other series that exists.
Kurosaki Ichigo, good manga, Portal, the Doctor (nine and ten!), MakaxSoul, Cloud Strife, Sasuke Uchiha dying a painful death, Danzo going the same way, fruit, Approaching Nirvana, Fuze drinks, Sephiroth (preferably sane), mac 'n cheese, tuna salad, Icanhascheezburger.com, Wheatley, Alucard (from the Hellsing manga), Keniki Ken, autocompleteme.com, rock music, Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, het pairings, Adiemus, Plain White T's, Asian Kung-Fu Generation, FFVII: Dirge of Ceberus, FFVII, Bleach background music, General Mumble, Vincent Valentine, naruto shippuuden music, manga, Yoruichi Shihouin, anime, Ash Grave, drawing, oil-pastels, paint, Gimp(GNU Image Manipulation Program), Deviant art, Google, green, orange, black, red, white, purple, blue, yellow (in that order), computers, the Battle for Wesnoth, Ikuro Hashizawa, Minecraft, Nethack, chocolate, and vanilla.
Anianga (in no particular order)-
Hitogatana, Katana, Bleach, One Piece, Franken Fran, Hellsing, Fairy Tail, Cyber Blue, Baoh, Absorb; Ability, Asura, Tokyo Ghoul, Crimson Grave, Chairudo, Akatsuki, Chrono Crusade, Immortal Rain, 0-7 Ghost, SAO, Defense Devil, and many, many others. (It's kinda sad- many of the mangas I like have little to no fanfic following... *sigh* And I'm not confident in my ability to write for them...)
Dislikes (or hates, depends)-
OOC yaoi, Hojo, wild mushrooms, earwax, homework, failing, Shuukurou Tsukishima, slow computers, pink, most 'cute' things, Orochimaru, Sousuke Aizen, Uchiha Madara, alchohol (tastes bad, and makes me feel queasy), smoking (smells awful), forgetting things, tangled hair, politics, and avocados
--One Last Act--
Aizen's last act of revenge sends Ichigo into the Narutoverse, to be sealed with Kyuubi. Here's the catch: the trip splits him and his dark side apart, leaving a young Naruto with FAR too many voices in his head. And here's the irony: the Hogyoku went along for the ride.
Ichigo MUST be a mentor/brother figure to Naruto
Mass crossover; can be crack (probably would be, given the premise...)
Daleks vs. Cybermen vs. Replicators vs. the Borg vs. (menos class) hollows vs. (soul eater) witches vs. Goa'uld vs. Ori vs. the Wraith vs. (farscape) Peacekeepers vs. (fullmetal alchemist) Homunculi vs. vampires vs. zombies vs. werewolves vs. the Sontarans
feel free to add more!
and even if it IS crack, please try to portray the characters canon-like, ne?
(personally, my money is on the Replicators and the Ori)
Doctor Who (possible crossover? depends on the author)
Something else happened during the Time War. The Doctor ends up with a demon in him (sealed or coexisting, your choice). When the Doctor gets pissed, his enemies better watch out! The Demonic Storm has awakened.
Hidan meets a goa'uld. 'nuff said
Or he could get snaked, there's something to be said for that, too
Has anyone seen the Stargate Atlantis episode 'Conversion'?
What I want is a fic where Sheppard's body adapted, leaving him where he's still only half blue (or maybe not- I'll let that flex a bit) and his mind is back to normal without any drugs.
The fic would start with the adjustments everyone has to go through to relax around Sheppard and his thoughts about it
(they can't change him back, make up your own reason) then as he starts going on missions (few and far between) everyone else's reactions and the SGA teams' explanation.
and so on and so forth
--songs I'm listening to--
Anything Approaching Nirvana or General Mumble. And some Miracle of Sound.
--I am an strange muffin. I am the oddest muffin you will ever meet. I think llamas and pickles are cool.
--There is no way to tell if you're really a die hard pessimist or if you just have an extremely morbid, dark sense of humour. Eather way, you can predict dooms-day and crack jokes in the same sentence

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt? We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!' Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.
Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.
In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.
Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.
Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt. Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.
The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.
Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.
Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.
Sincerely, Crock O. Schitt

EULOGY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He was outlived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
RIP: We shall remember
--Current Favorite Story Clip-
"Yes Vlad, I want to hear the speech." I drew in a breath letting it out in a huff as if Daniel had just consigned himself to doing something very stupid, which he had. I would be kidding myself though, if I said I was not interested in what his reaction would be. I was not going to lower myself to such ridiculous behavior without something in it for my own gain, and Daniel's reaction would be priceless. Though I mostly justified my next actions by saying he had asked for it.
"Very well Daniel, you wanted a speech, it is a speech you shall get." Daniel raised his eyebrows at me as I rolled my shoulders and coughed a few times, warming up the back of my throat. I could not believe I was actually doing this. I was truly in a mischievous mood if I was willing to do even this for some sort of convoluted amusement. Setting the straight razor back on the counter for latter, I drew back my lips in a snarl. The words that came spitting out of my mouth were in a heavy Russian accent.
"Are you a man ov zee Zavoevyvat decent?" Daniel laughed silently, eyebrows raised in speculation, but made no indication he was going to answer the question. Huh, funny, the same mistake I had made. I slammed my hand down on the counter, yelling my next words, practically spitting fire. I leaned forward getting in his face.
"DID ZAT SOUND LIKE A JSHOKE TO YOU BOY? I ASK YOU A QKUEVSTION!" Daniel recoiled his eyes wide. I only leaned forward further, my voice returning to a normal volume.
"I ask you again. Are you a man?" Daniel nodded his head.
"Are you ov zee Zavoevyvat decent?" Daniel started to shake his head no, because he really wasn't of the Zavoevyvat line, but stopped unsure if he would be yelled at for his negative answer. I sighed breaking character for a moment.
"Daniel just nod your head." He looked at me confused before he slowly nodded his head; I gave him a curt nod before I was back in full swing.
"Zen you vill be using zee blade vurthy of a Russian man!" I quickly picked up the disposable razor, waving it pathetically in front of his face. "How long have dis been in hour family?" Daniel started to stutter, shrugging his shoulders.
"I buy dis yesterday you stupid boy! DIS!" I brought my other hand up to snap the plastic handle of the razor in half, inches from the tip of his nose. "MEANS NOZING!" I threw the pieces of the razor over the boy's shoulders. Still standing closer than was necessary I swiped the straight razor off of the counter. With a flick of my wrist the blade of the razor was gleaming inches from the boy's nose.
"How long have dis been in hour family?" Daniel didn't even attempt to answer, his eyes glued to the razor in pure terror. Quickly realizing my mistake in wielding the blade so close to the teen, I tried to salvage the boy's piece of mind, flicking the razor closed, hoping beyond hope that I hadn't lost him in my thoughtlessness. I could see the relief flood his eyes as the blade disappeared; his face returning to its previously confused and slightly anxious state. Deeming it safe I continued. Of course yelling, just to keep his attention.
"TVENTY TREE GENARATIONS!" I leaned closer as I slammed the razor back down on the counter. Leaving it there so that I wouldn't make the same mistake again.
"Tventy tree generations of Zavoevyvat men has used dis blade." I pinned Daniel with my gaze as I got to the best part. I had him completely in my clutches as I spoke. "Your many simes great grandfather Gennadi, he cut off man's ear vith this blade, ven man try to steal his prize bull. Your uther grandfather, Mavati, he kill a man vith ziss blade, who try to rob his home. Cut zee troat clean open. De blood ruins his best shirt. Your greater grandfather still, Yustin, he skin entire bear vith ziss blade, for he has no uther blade to use. He make blanket for his dying family, uthervise they freeze to death in zee vinter ov zee century." I paused for dramatic effect, just as it had been done for the past twenty-three generations. Slowly leaning back away from the uncomfortably close proximity to Daniel that I had obtained "So you claim to be a man of Zaveovyvat decent. Zen you vill use zee blade of your forefathers. Like a real Russian man." I held Daniel's gaze for an endless moment before I smirked and stood up fully. Stepping back so that I wasn't invading his personal space any longer. I had been literally breathing on his face at some of the more intense moments. I waited for his reaction eager to see what he would think of the ridiculous tradition now. As I moved away he blinked rapidly, a hopelessly confused look on his face. Of course when he finally did get around to saying something, I wasn't disappointed with what came out of his mouth.
"So wait, you're Russian?" There was a 'smack' as my hand made contact with my face. Of course he wouldn't say anything about the murder or the ridiculous bear. He would focus on the fact that I was Russian. Tiredly I dragged my hand down my face.
"No Daniel, my parents named me Vladimir because they fancied a nice Dutch name. Yes Daniel, I'm Russian! I also speak fluent Russian and took yearly vacations from the ages of five to eighteen to see my grandparents in 'the motherland'. Zavoevyvat is actually Russian for 'conquer' and was mistranslated by the immigration office when my family immigrated to America to mean Masters. Does that satisfy your curiosity?" Daniel's head shot back and he brought his hands up in a defensive gesture.
"Whoa, okay sorry! I just never really thought about it before and it took me off guard." I sighed pinching the bridge of my nose. I really hadn't meant to snap. This was certainly turning out to be a very interesting morning.
"No Daniel, it's fine." I massaged my temples for a moment. Taking the time to cool down and remind myself that I didn't have to be defined by my family history. When I was sufficiently cooled down I chuckled lightly and brought my gaze up to meet Daniel's.
"You didn't think any of that nonsense about the murder, or skinning a bear was completely ridiculous?" Daniel shrugged and shot me a lopsided grin.
"Well, my ancestors fought ghosts using flowers. And better yet, were successful. At least your family history is somewhat manly and based out of some semblance of sanity." A loud echoing laugh escaped my mouth at Daniel's sentiment. It was made all the sweeter because what he had said was true. As I wound myself down I realized that Daniel had been laughing with me. His face was also red from lack of oxygen. The realization renewed the smile on my face. I clapped Daniel lightly on the shoulder, giving him an affectionate squeeze, and started moving to put my straight razor away.

Favorite Sorting Hat Song--
When Hogwarts' founders Snuffed It at the start of the millennium,
Their rivalries and foibles didn't cross the Lethe's banks with them;
For Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw and Slytherin and Gryffindor
Bequeathed me their authority to pick the House you're suited for.
Let other schools set entry tests and quiz your personality,
A Sorting Hat gets access to your innermost reality.
Your aptitudes and certitudes and psychoanalytical
Complexities will indicate which path will prove so critical.
Now Gryffindors are fêted for persistent feats of bravery,
And Righting every Wrong from Third-World Debt to House-elf Slavery.
They'll throw you in the thick of fine adventures that should not missed
If you can stick their heartiness and aren't too individualist.
The Hufflepuffs are loyal, fair, hardworking and meticulous,
Which makes up for the fact that Helga's surname was ridiculous.
You'd never cheat or take short cuts for laziness is criminal,
An excellent philosophy when praise you win is minimal.
The wise Rowena Ravenclaw creamed off the intellectual,
The scholarly, the witty and profoundly ineffectual,
Whose credo "Cogitamus ergo sumus" makes the best hot air -
And if you didn't get all that, don't panic, I won't put you there.
The virtues of the Serpent's house are swathed in deepest mystery,
But only slaves to simpleness would shun its checkered history,
With drive that sends you far in life and calculating brilliance-
A Slytherin, for good or ill, will make the greatest diff-er-ence.
But now my tender audience I'm sure that you have heard enough
Of Slytherin and Ravenclaw and Gryffindor and Hufflepuff,
My job's to get you Sorted and I'll brook no bribes or threats or tears,
Just put me on and trust me – I've been doing this a thousand years.

"Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!"
-President Thomas Whitmore from Independence Day
"This is our harbinger. It brings good tidings.
"We will be dead when it reaches you. Our planet is dying. We do not have time to save ourselves. We only have time to ready ourselves, and to send a message.
"We have seen the signals from those who came before us. They were different, and we still don't really understand them. But if there were those who came before, there may be those who come after. It is in this hope that our harbingers travel.
"One has found you and learned your language so it can relay this message. Please listen.
"The galaxy is dark, and empty, and cold. It spins inevitably toward death. You will die too, one day. Perhaps you will have longer than we have. We hope so. But one day you too must vanish.
"Until that time, you must light the darkness. You must make the night less empty. We are all small, and the universe is vast. But a universe with voices saying "I am here" is far greater than a universe silent. One voice is small, but the difference between zero and one is as great as one and infinity.
"And when your time is passing, please send this message on, so the next voice can speak against the darkness."
-SCP-1281, on the SCP wiki
We do not argue that war is better than peace; we are not so stupid as that. But it is not peace when cruelty reigns, when stronger men steal from farmers and craftworkers, when the child can be enslaved or the old thrown out to starve, and no one lifts a hand. That is not peace: that is conquest, and evil.

So You Want to Be a Wizard? by Diane Duane
So rise sun, and set.
Come at me Karma, with all the strength you have.
Betray me world. Fight me, fear me, and harm me.
Waters wash me away.
Fire burn me to ash.
Destroy my body, I will fight with my soul.
For I will absorb all the damage in the world,

The Ori were a major thorn in the side of the USA government, Homeworld Security, SGC, and all freedom-loving peoples in the universe who had the GRAVE misfortune to ever run into these crusading fanatics. The relevant USA government secret ops and their foreign allies in the International Oversight Agency had managed to also jab thorns right into the Ori's figurative sides too.

Sephiroth made a choked noise of exasperation. "Whoever told you life was fair?" The boy was Strife, he decided, as he grabbed one shoulder and spun him around. Chocobo Head was too empty-headed to give him such headaches, and the chocobo was fluffy and lovable. So this was Strife, and he wasn't sure which one was going to give him an aneurism first. "Rule number one to Sephiroth's Guide to Life: life is not fair. So play dirty."
"Rule number two: When the men in white coats come calling for you – and they will, I've no doubt of that – don't call the place they're taking you to the land of magic white straitjackets. It only makes them drive faster."

"Thank you, insufferable demon-worshiping bitch."

Orochimaru's reference to the chakra spike "boiling space" is actually based on one of Einstein's theories wherein he speculated that people could travel to other universes if they were able to boil space. He was referring to outer space, but I tweaked the idea to my own means. That's right – I combined Naruto with theoretical physics. I'm just that awesome.
All the Jounin flinched. Try saying that when you get sent The Look by Namikaze Uzumaki Naruto.
"But, but The Look…." Stuttered Kakashi.
Hiruzen gave them the Evil Eye. It was the older brother of The Look.

"That's what happens when you try to assassinate a Kage." Sarutobi said as he summoned Enma in his staff form, Naruto pulled out one of his puppet scrolls, Jiraiya formed a Rasengan, the Kazekage pulled out his spear, and the Raikage activated the jutsu that sped up his nervous system.
Orochimaru could do nothing except say, "Oh shit."

"So here we are, with main power offline, staring down the barrels of two motherships." Harry stated to his audience. The audience consisted of Teal'c, Jack, Sam, Daniel, Dr. Fraiser, Jacob Carter and General Hammond. "we were hailed in the name of Her'ur, and asked who we were, and the space monkey here replies in Goa'uld, 'Greetings, this is the great and powerful Oz!" Harry stated cracking up. Daniel ducked his head a little in embarrassment while everyone else chuckled a bit. "Next thing we know some Goa'uld is on the line asking who this great and powerful Oz is, and to yield and prepare to be boarded, then Daniel goes and says the great and powerful Oz orders you to yield." Harry laughed, "surprisingly, their confusion, and the arguing we could hear between the jaffa about who this Oz could be gave us just enough time to fix the engines and escape." Harry finished.

Now that he had a clan, and one with a bloodline to boot, he was going to be able to stick it to everyone who'd ever sneered down at him, said he was worthless. He was head of a clan now, and that meant he had a seat on the council. If those assholes thought he was a pain in the ass as a prankster, he was going to be their worst nightmare now that he was in government.

Snape glared at Harry. "Tell me boy, why did the hat put you in Gryffindor instead of Slytherin?"
Harry shrugged, feeling rather magnanimous. "Body count, sir."
Snape nodded. "I'd suspected as much. I still loath you; just so you know."
"The feeling is mutual, I assure you," Harry replied.

Unit-01 grabbed it in a flying tackle. Buildings in their way crumpled into rubble. Its eyes glowed with primal fury. As the Angel stood up, the Eva got it right at what passed for its jaw. Backhand across the same place, sending the Angel reeling. Hard punches right over its face. Knifelike palm thrusts to just below the ribs. More and more wild punches. Finishing off with a shinbone groin crushing kick extravaganza. The Angel had no expression and no genitalia, but one could almost see a 'gleep?' on its bonelike mask.

Fenrir, in puppy form, woofed happily and bounded over to his Alpha. Cloud gaped at his motorcycle's wagging tail and slobbering tongue. "Fenrir?" He was barked at and he blinked. He looked at the goddess. He turned a bright red. "THE HELL DID YOU DO TO MY MOTORCYCLE!" he screeched.

The Uzumaki family (plus one very annoyed Uchiha) came across a small village one afternoon. Harley decided that they would spend the night at the inn. Itachi ordered his own room and paid for it himself. Joker decided that Naruto should have his own room as well, and Harley hesitantly agreed. Naruto seemed a little worried, but then Harley eased his fears.
"Naruto, you do realize you are scarier than anything that might try to get to you in the dark, right?"

The American Declaration of Independence (because I can):
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.
He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.
He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.
He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.
We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
