    There was a sorc called Neil
    He thought he had insta-shield
    He went on to cast it, to only look like he s-hat it
    That was the end for Neil

    The Place by Tony Walsh Please Read
    This is the place in the North West of England

    It’s ace, it’s the best and the songs that we sing

    From the stands, from our bands set the whole planet shaking

    Our inventions are legends! There’s nowt we can’t make and



    So we make brilliant music. We make brilliant bands

    We make goals that make souls leap from seats in the stands

    And we make things from steel and we make things from cotton

    And we make people laugh, take the mick summat rotten



    And we make you at home and we make you feel welcome

    And we make summat happen, we can’t seem to help it

    And if you’re looking for history then yes, we’ve a wealth

    But the Manchester way is to make it yourself



    And make us a record, a new number one

    And make us a brew while you’re up, love. Go on!

    And make us feel proud that you’re winning the league

    And make us sing louder and make us believe it



    that this is the place that has helped shape the world

    And that this the place where a Manchester girl

    Name of Emmeline Pankhurst from the streets of Moss Side

    Led a Suffragette City with sisterhood pride



    And this is the place with appliance of science

    We’re on it, atomic, we strut with defiance

    In the face of a challenge we always stand tall

    Mancunians in union delivered it all



    Such as housing and libraries, and health, education

    And unions and co-ops, the first railway station

    So we’re sorry! Bear with us! We invented commuters!

    But we hope you forgive us – we invented computers!



    And this is the place Henry Royce strolled with Rolls

    And we’ve rocked and we’ve rolled with our own Northern Soul

    And so this is the place to do business, then dance

    Where go-getters and goal setters know they’ve a chance



    And this is the place where we first played as kids

    And me Mam lived and died here, she loved it she did

    And this is the place where our folks came to work

    Where they struggled in puddles, they hurt in the dirt



    And they built us a city. They built us these towns

    And they coughed on the cobbles to the deafening sound

    Of the steaming machines and the screaming of slaves

    They were scheming for greatness, they dreamed to their graves



    And they left us a spirit, they left us a vibe

    The Mancunian Way to survive and to thrive

    And to work and to build, to connect and create and

    Greater Manchester’s greatness is keeping it great



    And so this is the place now we’ve kids of our own

    Some are born here, some drawn here but we all call it home

    And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat

    All the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets



    Because this is a place that has been through some hard times

    Oppressions, recessions, depressions and dark times

    But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit

    Northern grit, northern wit in Greater Manchester’s lyrics



    And there’s hard times again in these streets of our city

    But we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity

    Because this a place where we stand strong together

    With a smile on our face, Mancunians Forever



    And we’ve got this* as the place where a team with a dream (*Forever Manchester)

    Can get funding and something to help with their scheme

    Because this is the place that understands your grand plans

    We don’t do No Can Do, we just stress Yes We Can!



    Forever Manchester’s a charity for people round ‘ere

    You can fundraise, donate. You can be a volunteer

    You can live local, give local. We can honestly say

    We do charity differently, that Mancunian Way



    And we fund local kids, and we fund local teams

    We support local dreamers to work for their dreams

    We support local groups and the great work they do

    So can you …help us help… local people like you?



    Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes

    Because this is the place that’s a part of our bones

    ‘Cos Greater Manchester gives us such strength from the fact

    That this is the place. We should give something back.

    Always remember. Never forget. Forever Manchester.

    There once was a Nord from Othrenis
    Who made poisons from violet coprinus
    He wore Sload's, he wore Zaan!
    He put swift jewelry on!
    To make up for his lacking OP-ness.

    I've got a couple :-)

    This one is about an experience I had doing a random normal:

    Once in a PUG run I did sneeze
    The boss he one shot me with ease
    "You lose with us" they yelled
    Though it was hard to tell
    As they cursed at me in Portuguese


    And this one is my Argonian vampire's backstory:

    A lizard, from city not mire
    Kidnapped by a couple most dire
    Locked away with a thud
    He was kept there for blood
    That's how he became a vampire

    DC zerged in
    The last two jumped in

    But the sorc said gimme a sec
    If you are angry about anything in this game you are only punishing yourself.

    Sometimes you make the right decision and sometimes you make the decision right.

    One day Clavicus Vile found himself a sweetheart
    But every day he has to attend his daedric business
    So he left barbas to keep an eye on her woman while he is working

    So this is what happened one day:

    The Lusty Daedric Maid

    Clavi: Is my sweetheart there?

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: She is with Sheo?!

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: And she is on her lingerie?!

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: And they are on my bed?!

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: And what are they doing doggy!? Tell me!
    Barbas: *Pants*Pants*Pants*Pants*


    The Lusty Daedric Maid

    Volume 2

    Clavi: Are they still there?

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: And they are drinking my whiskey?!

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: And listening to my music?!

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: Talking about me?!

    Barbas: *Woof... Woof*

    Clavi: And what are they doing Barbas?! Tell me! Tell me!

    Once were the leaderboard full,
    Then the wobbler came to despoil,
    Softcaps were gone, and champions all,
    But they quit now I'm stuck with this fool
    Yes I am deeply embarrassed to still be playing this game. I know better.

    There once was an Orc named Fengrush,
    Many enemies daily, would he crush.
    “Bend the Knee”, said mi’ Lord,
    Striking his foes, rather bored.
    All the Covenant to his side, soon would rush.

    “(Gosh darned), SPRINT BUG!!” yelled mi' Lord with a sigh
    The enemy seemingly mighty and high.
    Red and yellow got PAKT UP,
    On their heads, would he sup.
    Called to arms with a roaring battle cry.

    The Dominion he vowed to defeat.
    Pressing on to the scrolls in the keeps,
    With Orc Army in tow,
    Much havoc did they sow.
    And Emperor soon would he be.

    One day close to Blue Road, the Keep
    A dragon would soon take a leap.
    “Son of a (Breton)!” he shouted
    As a warden also soon sprouted.
    "No one's unbeatable!" gg, go to sleep.

    He stood proud over those he had slain.
    "God Bless" said our Lord as he reigned.
    The Orcs bowed to their Liege
    As they took out the siege.
    A victory for the Sotha Sil campaign.

    Last one I promise. It was just fun to write and I was a bit bored today. My poor husband... :D



    There once was a Khajiit stranded in Bruma,
    Who found he was quite out of the Skooma.
    He asked around town,
    If more could be found,
    And the innkeeper whispered, “…Von’Drooma.”

    “Von’Drooma?” he said, making a clatter,
    For they all knew, just what was, the matter.
    The war-maiden was large,
    And she liked to take charge,
    His poor heart went pitter and patter.

    “No choice, this one has”, he lamented,
    So sure his doom firmly cemented.
    With a cloak and a zoom,
    He snuck into her room.
    Eye’s lighting on bottles, fermented.

    “Couldn’t resist? Eh..?.” came from behind,
    As Von’Drooma lumbered in, like 2 jiit’s combined.
    She took off her eye patch,
    And he started to scratch,
    This one must have been out of his mind.

    He rushed out in the night with the Skooma,
    Since he quickly snuck out of her room a’.
    This one felt like a fool,
    When she started to drool,
    And not again would he stay there, in Bruma.

    Zos started an event called Summerfall,
    With a pet, mount and a house for us all,
    They put up a meter,
    But the game's still in Beta,
    So they sold the house behind a paywall

    I once met a cat name Raz,
    He wore tight leather pants on his ass,
    When I fell from the sky
    I met the Queen's Eye
    So burnt all my panties and bras

    (p.s. no I'm not a Furry but still Raz is a beast)

    Micro-transactions make me worry
    I'd rather eat slurry, than spunk any money
    Its just plain greedy, needy and seedy
    Exploiting chumps, just makes you lot flumps
    Less than 10 percent of the base, shouldn't bring a smile to your face!
