    Uh let me think...Bo Duke, John, Dukes of Hazzard, Resident Evil, Bo Duke...lots of other stuff.
  1. A third movie? God(s) above I hope not! As for a third reunion. Although a nice idea. I doubt it. ~She-Wolf
  2. Sci-fi. That station rocks. ~She-Wolf
  3. Yes, Saiyuki is [loosely] based of the Journey West (which, I'll admit, is what sparked my interest)... However, it does stick pretty close to the skeleton of the original plot. I believe the Japanese name for Monkey is Son Goku, hence the characters from both Dragonball Z and Saiyuki of the same name. I think he's also called Sun Wukong in Chinese. But in the translations I've read he's just called Monkey. Or Monkey King sometimes. The art in my sig is of the Saiyuki Son Goku. And the lettering (if you can't read it) says "Great Sage, Equal to Heaven". Which was the title Monkey demanded after evading the warriors of heaven for so long. The Jade Emperor (AKA Most Celestial Beaurocrat) gave it to him so he would stop causing trouble. ~She-Wolf
  4. Walker smiled, "So...you wanna give themt the good news?" Michaels frowned, "Do you think it's wise to get their hope up?" Walker stripped off her scrubs, "What else is there?" VVVVV Meanwhile, Enos was already striding up to the Hazzard County police station. He knew this had to be done right. Otherwise this could just backfire. But he knew one thing: what had happened was eating Rosco up inside. Or it was at least bothering him. Enos could remember several times in the last couple years when Rosco would drive up to the Duke farm...always claiming he wanted to catch them in the act. But Enos knew Rosco well, and knew that the sherrif was indeed just going up there to check on them. Besides, Enos knew that if he could get Rosco on his side then Boss would have little or no choice... ~She-Wolf
  5. Go west young man! ....not quite. For those of you that don't know what I'm talking about. The Journey West is an ancient Chinese fantasy novel written by Wu Ch'eng En in the sixteen century. It chronicals the antics of Monkey, a creature born from rock who becomes extremely powerful. When I say extremely powerful, I mean Superman x 100. It follows him as he protects a monk, Tripitaka, who is going westward from China to India to retrieve Buddhist scriptures. Along the way they are accompanied by Sandy and Pigsy, two gods who were cast down from heaven and are trying to repent as monsters on earth. The book consists of about 100 chapters, most of these chapters consist of short stories as the four main characters travel. I'm just curious. Who has heard of this ancient Chinese folk novel? Better yet, who likes it? I've been reading about it online ever since my interest was sparked a few months ago. Not too long ago I bought the Arthur Waley abridged version, Monkey, and am almost finished reading it. Unfortunately I haven't been able to buy any of the four-volume translated versions that are out there. So, has anyone read the full translated versions? What did you think? What do you think of the story in general? Personally I love every second of it. It's a fantastic story. Really funny too. There are some seriously hilarious (not to mention outragous) things in there, even for modern, American audiences. ~She-Wolf
  6. "Thank God..." Michaels' said in a barely audible whisper. "Amen to that..." Walker breathed. VVVVV "Luke?" Uncle Jesse asked, terrified that he'd lose his other child, as some sort of punishment for causing the death of another. Luke just looked up at him and gave him a quick smile. When Uncle Jesse gave him a puzzled look he just wrote: "It'll be alright...He'll be alright." VVVVV Daisy was glad when the shivers stopped. What had that been? She sighed, it was probably just a result of all the anxiaty she'd been under lately. Now, she had to get to Enos before he hit town... ~She-Wolf
  7. Michaels' heart went cold as ice. He felt Walker stiffen up beside him. They watched the surgeons work, powerless to do anything else. VVVVV Meanwhile, just as Daisy entered Hazzard something hit her. She didn't quite know what it was, but it made her bones shudder. Daisy haphazardly pulled her car over while she waited for the sudden, violent shakes to stop. What was that? She thought. ~She-Wolf
  8. Michaels held a particle mask over his mouth and nose. Walker had actually bothered to put her's on. He supposed she was more resistant to things like this then he was. In the few years he'd been a prison doctor, he'd only lost one patient, and the main artery in their neck had been sliced in half. Needless to say they had died instantly... Walker's experience had probably been more difficult. She worked in the coma ward. Most of the people in there might as well have been dead. He would bet money she'd had to pull the plug on a few of her patients as well. She must have had much more experience with this kind of thing. Dealing with families, the death of someone who hadn't yet seen as many sunsets as she had. "...It never does..." She whispered silently beside him as they stood in the back of the room, watching the preceedings. "What?" He asked, snapped from his thoughts. "This," She replied, "No matter how many times you see it it never gets easier...the only way to protect your soul from it is to lock it away. Somewhere deep where empathy can't effect it..." "...But we can't. Lock our souls away. Can we?" Even under the particle mask he could have sworn he saw the faint remnants of a smile, "No...we can't. Because we hear about miracles and every time we think 'maybe'. Maybe this time I'll get to see a miracle..." He didn't reply. But he knew she was right. They couldn't lock their souls away, because wouldn't they just hate to see that one miracle in their lives and not be able to feel it. But when Bo's heart moniter flatlined, for just a moment, Michaels truly wished he had that ability... ~She-Wolf
  9. He wanted to say more. Wanted to do something to make up for his inability to help. But god knew that anything he could have said would have just been him trying to make himself feel better. He felt Walker brush a hand on the sleeve of his lab coat. "Come on..." She whispered, "There's nothing left for us to do here..." As much as he hated to admit it, she was right. The only thing they could do now was check on the surgery. He could at least be there in case something went wrong. She-Wolf
  10. After a moment, Doc Walker considered suggesting they make funeral arrangments. But knew that it would be far too cruel right then. She saw Michaels' fist clench, his other hand gripping his clipboard so hard you could see the ivory bone beneath flesh. She hadn't wanted to intervene like that. But she'd been a doctor long enough to know that when they had that look in their eyes, chances were they couldn't speak... "Cat got your tongue" was very appropriate. Of course, she was just focusing on her friend to take her mind off of the Dukes. Jesse Duke, the older man looked even weaker, frailer. So did Luke...somehow he even managed to look even frailer than he did while laying in that hospital bed... Suddenly, Luke grabbed his pen and paper, and scribbled a messy: "What are his chances?" It was Walker's turn to not speak. Hadn't she been clear enough? Why did he have to make her repeat the prognosis of the surgeon and five doctors, herself and Michaels included. Luke jabbed a finger at the notepad, and stared back at her with a stubborn will. What right did she have to refuse that? "...There...is an 80 percent chance of the surgery being unsuccessful. And a 30/70 chance of him surviving through the night if he makes it to recovery." ~She-Wolf
  11. "Enough doc..." Uncle Jesse said, "What're you getting at." Doc Michaels tried to talk, but for once a cold ice seemed to grip him. These were good people. Who had just fallen on hard times. They were just coming back to a love for each other. And Beauregard had suffered so much already...fought so hard. He had never had any hesitation about something like this. It was always hard, but he knew it was his sworn duty to give news like this. And he'd had to dozens of times in the past. Nope, never had a regret about his choice of profession either. ...Until then. Dear Walker! Even as he stood there like a dear in the headlights she jumped in. A part of him was angry that she'd had to take up his slack, but another part of him couldn't be happier... ~She-Wolf
  12. Daisy drove faster than was healthy. Desperate to get to Enos before he did something he would regret. She could do this, nothing Boss could do to her could hurt her more than it already had, but Enos...he didn't have that immunity. If he went directly and challenged Boss with the knowledge he had, he would the thrown in prison. He wouldn't survive that. Daisy switched gears and swerved off the high way. Please...she begged silently. I've been such a screw up lately. Don't let me screw this up... ~She-Wolf
  13. It's stupid. Lack of...anything like that is one of the reasons I love the Dukes. Also, I didn't know Ben Jones was an activist? ~She-Wolf
  14. Dito. I don't know much about Full Metal Alchemist but I like your avi. ~She-Wolf
  15. Does anybody watch the TV show or read the books? It's one of my all time favorite series both on TV and in respect to the books. I love the books. A fantastic fantasy series. And although the show is certainly different than what I picture in my mind, I love it too. Note: If there's anybody out there who's just knows about the show you may want to check out the books by Jim Butcher. So anybody else? ~She-Wolf
