Thoughts Courtesy of Pokemon Movie 16Nintendo's gone and made me cry-- again!-- with a Pokemon movie. Have I previously seen "Genesect and The Legend Awakened"? Yes. Did the one Genesect's words strike me before? No.
Seeing the film again, I can sympathize with the Genesect's search for a place they belong. Even now, I battle with the same feeling, and have in the past: being in the foster care system; being the outcast in school; and now being a senior. So where do I go now? I keep hearing the Genesect's plea in my head: "I want to go home."
As humans we can go our whole lives without finding our-- not "a", our-- place in this world. Without that feeling of belonging, we can succumb to the demons of our society-- love of destruction, greed, and envy, among others. We're all meant to do and be so much more, to be where we can find happiness.
It's my belief that we're all capable of such greatness. But what are we doing to achieve that greatness? Are we busy working at the cubicle farm, unwilling to ask what more we

Dear RubyDear Ruby,
I suppose it happened early last year, during your fight with the Beowolves in the Snowy Forest. You seemed to be a somewhat enigmatic character-- a young woman, her face obscured by a red cloak, as she visited a grave. At first, when the Grimm appeared, I felt some concern. But these worries were ill-founded; as you drew Crescent Rose, I could tell that you were a warrior. You gave this confidant (perhaps "smug" is a good description too) smile before laying the pack to waste. Looking back, I think it was then that this emotion took root.
Fast forward several months. While you listened to your music, reading a magazine, you didn't notice the thieves... well, until that one moron tried to rob you. That "Ohhh" you gave in response made me wonder, "What is this young woman going to do now?" I was not disappointed in the least! You showed no fear in the face of a more powerful opponent, yet displayed how adorable you can be with Glynda and Ozpin.
At that point... well, I'll get
