Yesterday on Canada day my parents and I drove to Stevenson, Richmond for the Canada day parade.We got there early so we wandered around the booths a little and then we saw a booth with a game. the game was that you need to throw 2 out of 4 beanbags into a tiny hole in a inflatable bouncy mat.I won and I chose a foldable frisbee as my prize.
Then we walked to a street nearby where the were grilling salmon fillets over a giant wood fire on racks measuring around 1 meter by 2.5 meters,there were 8 racks in all.The people working there rotated the racks by looking at the time and once a specific time passes they would take off the rack closest to them shift all the other racks toward them and add another rack with raw salmon on the other end.1 rack takes 10 minutes to be ready for consumption.Since this is not a very common phenomenon lots of people were gathered around the fire and taking photos,my dad was one of them.The salmon was sooo delicious,but it was kind of pricey at $16 per filet and salad.But even though it was this pricey the line for it was the longest line in the whole celebration. According to the official site of the Stevenson salmon festival last year they sold ___ salmon.
After that I went to a bouncy castle park they set up nearby and my dad bought me 12 tickets with $10.First I played in a race track bouncy castle where I won the race.There was also a golf course where I got 3 hole in ones out of 10.Then I went to an archery place with a bow and some arrows tipped with foam as to not injure anyone.I shot a floating foam ball down by accident because my arrow went sideways and hit the ball with its tail!
Then we had to leave and on the way home there was a traffic jam that lasted 1 hour with absolutely no movement.At night we went to Coquitlam for fireworks.In summary it was an awesome day.

Hello . I am a tadpole . I am writing this story in the hopes that other tadpoles like me will be inspired and fight back against the tyranny of sharks .
It began the day I saw a book . I saw it because the teacher in the classroom I was in put it in front of my tank . It described the 4 elements earth, fire, air, and water as known by the greeks . Unfortunately , the next day I found myself whizzing through some pipes . The next thing I knew I splashed into a lake and saw a shark coming towards me . It slapped me across the lake and into a small cave filled with air . I was surprised to find that I could breathe on land and fell in surprise as I heard another voice “ Wow! I have never seen another tadpole who can breathe on land before ” . He asked me how I got here and I told him that I didn’t know and that my name was Archimedes . He responded by saying his name was Raptor and that he would just call me Arch instead of Archimedes .
5 days later I remembered what I read in the science book . I tried some experiments in the air cave . Raptor had a lighter and some rocks . I did some experiments with all 4 of the elements . First I got some water and threw it . It was very ineffective . Then I threw a pebble , and it flew around 1 meter above water and 10 cm in water.The lighter worked and a huge ball of fire erupted from it . Unfortunately the fire does not work under water . The air just floated up and was useless . Then I got a bigger rock and I couldn’t throw it because it was too heavy .
The next day I swam outside the cave and suddenly was confronted by an evil carp . This horrible Carp kept poking me . Angrily , I swam back to the cave while vowing that I would have revenge on the carp . In the cave I asked Raptor for 2 pieces of rope and using them , Using the pieces I made a sling . I learned how to make slings from a science demo in the high school where I grew up . Unfortunately I was terrible at it and I could only sling a rock around 1 . 5 meters .
I gasped because it looked like the scythe of ASDFQWERZXCV .It suddenly said “Hello , I am the scythe of ASDFQWERZXCV ” . I was so surprised by this that I dropped it ! The scythe suddenly teleported Drago and his siblings away .
When Drago and his siblings looked around they saw only one tunnel leading somewhere so they went there.When they came out the other end they saw a riddle on the far wall of the cave.The dragons all went to get a closer look and the tunnel closed behind them.The riddle read “what is The Beginning of eternity, The end of time and space, The beginning of every end, And the end of every place.”
Amber said “The Letter e” then the wall crumbled revealing Dracul and Genghis Khan with an army of 1 million quark bomb wielding soldiers…
The legend of the scythe of ASDFQWERZXCV
The scythe of ASDFQWERZXCV is a weapon forged by ASDFQWERZXCV from before the splitting of the multiverse . This scythe has 3 special properties : First , it can change colors and for every different color it has a different power 1 . Secondly , only a worthy being can wield it . And thirdly , it talks ! It was scattered after the megaverse bombs were detonated and has never been pieced together from the time crystals since this happened .
1 some known colors and their corresponding powers:
- green : poison
- blue : heat
- silver : neutron star bullets
- gold : solar wind
- black : detonate
- rainbow : recombine (recombine all atoms of target into a chair ore some similar item)
Then I opened the door and Drago stepped in . He asked me who I was and I explained that I was the narrator dragon . Suddenly the time crystal flew out of Drago’s claws and went toward my partially finished collection of time crystals .
It clicked together with the other crystals and started to glow blue and hum with energy .
It suddenly started to crackle , it started to compact and soon became a wicked looking scythe that jumped into my claws .
The Narrator Dragon
Light Crystals allow any dragon to teleport to a set location in the cosmos . In particular some crystals can even be made from black holes . Those crystals radiate cold and they literally suck your energy away . There are also crystals from white holes which boost your energy and provide warmth . If a crystal from a white hole and one from a black hole touch then they explode in a blast powerful enough to tear space and time to create an everlasting wormhole . Then Drago felt sorry for Mangoe and offered to take him to their home on Pi-41.Then Mangoe and the siblings went to their house which they called the “Awesome Cave“.When they arrived they got a book off the shelf and found out that a time crystal was trapped in an eternal time loop five hundred years ago.Then they agreed that after a good night’s rest that they would go and retrieve it.
The next day they prepared for their journey.When they were ready Mangoe unleashed wild torrent of black fire and then used his mind to turn the fire into a river and then into a sphere.After that he told Spacey to make a shell of ice around it.Then Mangoe explained that if everyone touched the ice,he could time travel them all.When they next blinked they were about to be stepped on by a giant with the time crystal embedded in his forehead.
“Run!“ yelled Drago.
When they had run 500 meters they turned around and saw not one but three giants barreling down on them . Then they seemed to pause in mid leap and only their mouths were moving because Mangoe stopped their local time.They said that their names were Bing,Bang,and Boom. Bing said “ To get the crystal one of you must best Bang at wrestling . ”Mangoe volunteered and he stopped time and pushed Bang over so he won.Then they got the crystal and they prepared to go back.
Once they got back, they took out the light crystal and stepped into its beam . All of them instantly teleported to the home of the Narrator dragon . The Narrator dragon lived on a hill in the middle of a planet called Gaea in the planetary system of sol in the La vía Láctea galaxy .
The concept behind homeschooling is really quite simple: Parents accept total responsibility for the education of their children rather than transferring the bulk of this responsibility to a public or private school . In practical terms, this means that the home becomes the center of a child’s education , rather than a school . Parents , who have a deep interest in their children based on love,become the primary educators for their children.Homeschool parents carefully guide their children through their mental, emotional, and physical development.The parents choose an educational path for their children based on each child’s personality and gifts.
Public schooling is free, and each child is guaranteed to have a free and appropriate education. There are public schools all over, making it easy for your child to get there, plus there is usually transportation, so you don’t have to do anything to get your child to school except to get them out to the bus stop on time.The kids also get a lot of socialization which will help in their later lives. They will encounter a lot of different personality types.However,public schools are geared to teach the average student. Which means gifted kids get bored and kids who are struggling keep getting left further and further behind.
Some benefits of homeschooling are that homeschooled children get the individualized education that their parents want them to . The education is totally geared around the child and will work towards their strengths and help them with their weaknesses . The parents get to spend a lot of time home with their kids , so while the kids are being educated they are also bonding with their kids . The gifted kids get to work as fast as they can , while the children who are struggling get to spend all the time they need to stay caught up .
Some disadvantages of homeschooling are that that the parents of the child in question has to give up a lot of their time to teach the child . Another is the lack of facilities , there is no way for a standard house to be as well equipped with learning materials as a standard school is . There is also the question of the costs , it costs a lot of money to get all of the textbooks , worksheets , and other learning materials .
Those were some of the reasons why I think homeschooling is a very good idea .
Three and a half trillion years ago there were time dragons . Their food was giant black holes which were ate along side neutron stars for their food . They farmed giant stars and once they exploded they would eat them . But unfortunately they ran out of food and they starved . Once they starved they couldn’t use their time travelling powers so they couldn’t get food from the future.Right before all of the Time dragons died out one couple created an egg . What became of this egg is a mystery …

The space dungeon is a defense measure that can be deployed by a time dragon . Essentially it traps the attackers in a fortress with 1 exit and 5 million rooms . First you start at the library,then you can go up to the observatory and get a crystal of solid starlight . There are 2 other paths from the library one involves going on a 1 km long set of monkey bars and the other is to swim the length of the pacific ocean . When you escape the fortress the time dragon will be long gone .
The dragon floating in the middle of the asteroids was a baby time dragon and his egg was Amalthea . The time dragon tried to make a space fortress but only succeeded to make the observatory before flying away . Drago and his siblings went into the observatory and got a crystal of light from a blue giant named Teu Rei . the crystal looked like sapphire with black lightning twisting through it and green sparkles that shone like the moon .Then they came out of the dungeon and started talking to the panicked time dragon,and soon they became friends.Then the time dragon told the others that his name is Mangoe and explained about light crystals.
