Stockholm. 10.Mornings with Gerard smelled like pancakes, or sometimes fried eggs or waffles or even nothing because they were just going to have cereal, and sounded like the glass sound of plates on plates and birds singing their romances. His fingers stretched across the bed, bending over the ninety-degree angles where the edges of the bed were, his body spread like starfish across the mattress so it took up nearly the whole space. The shades were drawn and Frank could only tell because the back of his closed eyelids were blood-vessel red; a soaked-up pool of his own saliva was cool and wet on the corner of his mouth. In the kitchen a metal pan made oily sizzling sounds.Stockholm. 10.7 years ago in Fanfiction Epic Challenge More Like This
Frank bent and extended his middle finger, moving it as if petting the sheets, stroking the place where Gerard had once been. And even though the other man was only in the other room he felt vacant; an empty hotel room, a table for one in an old café, garnished with a glass vase holding a single, half-wilted brown and yellow

Chapter 1 - Lost Souls
Sora received the message from the King nearly a year after Organisation XIII had been defeated. It was just about the time that Heartless had begun to be active again - and this was no mere coincidence. There had been a small detail that the keyblade bearers had overlooked when fighting nobodies in the last invasion of darkness - the soul.
Each person, Sora was told, is made up of three parts - a body, which gives them physical form, a heart, which aligns their reactions to the world, creating feelings, and their soul - an accumulation of all that the person was, is and will be. The soul was, in simple terms, their memories and true essence of being. It was also explained, that upon loss of a heart, the body and soul, if strong e

Chapter 1: Peach Creek Fairgrounds
It was a somewhat quiet, yet busy day here in the little town of Peach Creek. We soon come upon a place where there was a huge Ferris wheel and loads of other kinds of rides, games and attractions. This place was the fairgrounds of Peach Creek, called Peach Creek Fairgrounds. It was located on the outskirts of the city of Peach Creek.
Anyway, we soon come upon the attraction section of the fairgrounds. It is here where we see a huge machine that looked like something out of a sci-fi movie; it was a teleport machine, with two pads to place things in and a tube like thing ay the top that connected the two pads. And it is in front of this machine that we see the creator.
It was a boy that was a middle sized, fourteen year old teen that had only three strands of black hair coming out of the back of his white-striped, black sockhat and had dark, jade green eyes. He wore a red-orange t-shirt that went past his

The pencil gently travelled over the paper as the young girl placed her vision in the sketchbook, the light lines depicting a scene of horses grazing in a field. Not horses exactly, not with flames dancing across their backs, the bright flames mixing with the red dawn. The girl smiled, pushing some of her own fiery hair out of her eyes to get a better look. She leant back and began on the mountains far in the distance, their faint snowcaps visible in the growing light. The peace was slightly overwhelming to her, having spent most of her childhood in the bustling Saffron City. There was a faint mewling as something crawled into her lap.
'Look, Ashie,' she said, pointing at the horses grazing ahead, 'remember when we last saw those?' The little creature flattened her long ears as she attempted to get a peek over to girl's sketchbook, her puffy tail bobbing in her friend's face. She squeaked happily at the sight of them, happy that this time they were wild. A howl spli
Epic Fanfic: Our Ninja Way 10We are truly in Sound Country, now, Kakashi observed absentmindedly, glancing at the empty buildings that had once been the homes of a proud country- back when this, now-deserted, village was known as the Land of Rice Paddies. It had been a small, profitable country back in its day- the main food source of the Five Lands, for it was where the staple diet of rice was grown, hence its name. When Orochimaru took over and made the Hidden Village into his own, he took the role of Otokage- the Sound Shadow, and enslaved anyone who could not escape, turning them into subjects for his cruel and twisted scientific experiments. Eventually, he had ran out of original villagers- having killed or transformed most of them in horrific ways people dared not speak of- and the once prosperous village had fallen into disrepair. It was nothing more than a ghost town, with Orochimarus lair hidden in the centre, somewhere- deep underground. None had found it and come out alive.Epic Fanfic: Our Ninja Way 107 years ago in Fanfiction Epic Challenge More Like This

The museum felt like a ghost town. One lone professor sat silently in his office, his brown mustache twitching as his fingers nervously drummed on the desk as if they were acting out of his control. His blue eyes flickered to both sides every few seconds as if he expected something to jump out at him from the darkened corners of the room. His anxious gaze eventually fell to the wooden desk before him. He had been feeling this way since the golden, Egyptian, bracelet had arrived nearly two weeks ago. He remembered feeling excited to have another item of such rare value in the Domino Museum. But now, all he wanted was to get it as far away from Domino, and himself, as possible.
He leaned back and glanced at the clock. 11:45. Fifteen minutes until his security would return. Fifteen more minutes and the unexplainable monsters would disappear. Ever since the bracelet had arrived, Domino museum had been terrorized by dark creatures whenever someone came within two feet of the gla

Inuyasha was once again balancing on the edge of the cliff, one side the wide safe plane covered with flowers as far as you could see. On the other side the misty depth. Sesshoumaru emerged out of the mist and looked up to him. Inuyasha looked at the boring plane on the safe side. He jumped down and landed in front of his brother.

It seemed hard to believe that a sunny quiet village like this could host such an important object. But again, its always for the quiets you have to watch out (good that Im a riot, then, no?).

Part of me wondered why I was so protective, but at that moment I didnt dwell on it. Who are you? Reveal yourself! My voice was a snarl again. What was happening with me.
Calm down, calm down, the figure said, and I took in a sharp breath, recognizing the voice at once. I heard Reechani moving behind me, moving to stand slower than I hadbut I still felt the tension rolling off of him. He was defensive too; was he as ready to protect me as I was to protect him?

It was the closest to a command that he would ever get. Beggars are not choosers and captives are not commanders; at best theyre lucky puppets if their strings are around their wrists and ankles instead of their necks, and theyre even luckier if their puppeteers dont decide to grind them up into firewood. So when Frank stood in the small, dark space between their two bedrooms, that couple of feet between where he stood and where Gerard stood, he was either feeling remarkably lucky or particularly stupid because puppets do not make demands of anyone. Even if they are particularly privileged.
At that point it was probably a little after ten, feeling more like midnight with the snow and the cold and the sleepy sluggishness that came with mid-western winter. Frank felt a little bit like he was about to go into hibernation. Gerard yawned and turned around, all silhouette and no features in the lack of light. Sleepily he asked, Y
Stockholm. 1.Light always comes first, as light is the source of most things. Certain flowers turn in the direction of the sun, twisting their leaves and petals in this dirt to face the ball of yellow; light is the source of sight and color, both of which directly affect human emotion which in turn affect performance on various different levels; and it is assumed that when a child is forced from the womb the first thing they see is the light, a terrible contrast to the dark safety of the sack of nutrients and a morbid parallel to the light at the end of an approaching death.Stockholm. 1.7 years ago in Fanfiction Epic Challenge More Like This
But when Franks mind began to birth itself back into consciousness he did not turn towards the light like a flower rooted into the soil, and he didnt welcome it like a child fresh from the womb. He treated it like the light at the end of the tunnel; high beams of a car steered by a drunk driver. He tried to step out of the way but the light came close, seemed to envelope his whole head. Frank tried to open his mouth

Six months after his abduction he was seeing two therapists, detailing to the both of them about how he lived with Gerard. He kept his promise to himself and didnt tell them about kissing Gerard and his odd desire for a relationship with him, but he divulged to them about Gerard kissing him only to change the subject quickly. It felt too personal.

Gerard chewed on his thumbnail in the other room, visible through the large, wooden walk way. He was leaning forward, elbows on his knees. Frank said nothing. He watched condensation gather on the kettles metal surface, beginning around the middle and then dripping down and hissing in the fire. Like tears or sweat. He picked up the tea kettle by the black handle, gritting his teeth together and listening to the SSSS of the water against the hot metal. Like piss. He set the kettle back down and crossed his arms, leaning against the counter.
Franks insides knotted, then rose and fell in a movement that reminded him of a swing set.

From underneath the door Frank could see yellow light, visibility that had been reduced to specks because of the thickness of the carpet. The shadows of Gerards feet were visible, making blocks of darkness in the speckled line of light. Frank had actually been awake for several minutes; not awoken by Gerards knuckles on the door but by the soft sounds of the lamp clinking on and the dresser drawers opening closing. He made a sound of acknowledgment, his back stiff from being propped against the sharp angle where two walls met. Making his back erect in an attempt to stretch some of the tight muscles, Frank felt like someone had placed two rulers where the rope-like muscles of his back had been.
I was wondering if you wanted any breakfast, Gerard said. Frank furrowed his eyebrows in the dark, feeling as if his pupils were the size of nickels.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark was a collection of horror stories, all contained in three thick volumes.

On weekends, when his mom told him he could stay up to nine o clock (but no later), hed tuck the book under his arm, along with one of his dads heavy-duty metal flashlights, and pull his blankets over his head in a make-shift fort.

While the kids down the street were at home reading Harry Potter with their mommies and daddies, Frank was looking at pictures of corpses with their mouths torn off. H
Stockholm. 4.There became something serene about the darkness of the enclosure. With his body curled into a ball, knees against chest and tip of thumb in mouth, he was like a child in the womb, listening to the sounds of the outside as if he was hearing them through the amniotic fluid he had long since experienced. Through the walls, he could hear Gerard shifting through foodstuffs or flicking on the television early in the morning. In his space- Franks space- he could listen, but not experience. It was a place of safety. He sometimes wished Gerard would assume that he was asleep and not knock on the door so he could continue to count the times his heart made thumping noises in the cage of his ribs.Stockholm. 4.7 years ago in Fanfiction Epic Challenge More Like This

Gerards open hands moved up to the side of his head and he slowly took a step back, his neck bent, his head down.

The man stood with his legs apart, steadying himself, and he told Gerard to get on the ground. If youre not a hostage, then what are you? he asked, and it was mostly rhetorical. He glanced back at Gerard who had not moved. I said GET ON THE GROUND!
