Snape's Final Time With Lily"Eight minutes," muttered Snape to himself. "I only have eight minutes to see her."Snape's Final Time With Lily4 years ago in Literature Entries More Like This
He was back in Spinner's End, in the grey gloom of the house where he grew up, five blocks away from where Lily Evans lived. But tomorrow, she would be Lily Potter.
Snape burst out of his house, running down the familiar streets of his childhood. They had not spoken to each other since they were both fifteen, but childhood instinct guided him to where Lily would be tonight. It was where she thirstily drank his knowledge of wands and dementors and wanted to learn more about her magical abilities. It was where they had spent long summer days together, leaning against each other's shoulders in the cool emerald shade of the trees as they watched the sun glisten upon the sapphire river. It was where, at age thirteen, she confided that if she were ever to be married, she would want to stand here alone the night before her wedding, dressed in her wedding gown. His heart was no master of Occlumens; its thumping

As I was walking through the village, heading towards Ichiraku, I saw something shining in an alleyway. Being the curious boy I am, I quickly went over to it. When I was close enough, I could see it was some kind of clock. I wonder if someone dropped it? I thought to myself. I picked it up and noticed a strange card tied to it. The person who has found this magical clock has been given the opportunity to "Turn Back the Wheel of Time", but beware, for it is for only 8 minuets. No more and no less. The first thing that popped into my head was that this was some kind of trick. "Okay, what stupid kid left this out thinking I was going to fall for it? Konohamaru, is it you?" I yelled out, but the alleyway stayed silent and empty. I look back at the clock, feeling depressed thinking about the time I wish I could go back to. Suddenly, the clock shined brightly and I was blinded. I wouldn't see anything but white all around me. N

"Stupid Urahara.." Rukia muttered, "I wish for once I could go into that store without having to return something," she had had to go to that stupid man's stupid shop to return a stupid box of somafixers she bought and, luckily before taking them, discovered he had given her the wrong packege! Now she came home with a replacement box and a fully-charged phone, free of charge... "I'm just WAITING for this rip-off to break..." she muttered as she glared at the plastic bag in her hand, that man was honestly so suspecious sometimes... and he always did something sneaky behind her back...
"I'm home!" Rukia shouted as she walked in through the door and kicked her shoes off, "Ichigo? You here?!" "I'm in the shower!" she heard back, she sighed and nodded slowly, heading upstairs and walking into his bedroom, "That stupid merchant better not have done anything weird..." she muttered as she dumped the little bag out on the bed, being surprised to find that in with th

Eight minutes. He had eight minutes. He stared at the miraculous clock. One last chance to see her, her beautiful face. His heart pounded in time with his head: Hurry, hurry, hurry. One more turn, and he can turn back time, to apologize, to amend. One more turn, and he can---
She would be alive again.
--see her eyes, full and alive. The long-hidden dreams, steeped deeply within his soul, rose once more.
Severus brushed by the students, so preoccupied with this one thought that he forgot even to snarl. In the faint back of his mind, he realized that the Carrows were yelling at him. And then he was in front of the Gryffindor entrance. He stepped forward
--right into Minerva. "WHAT do you think you are doing?" she hissed," Out for fresh meat, aren't you, you slimy COWARD!"
The word rang in his mind, and his eyes finally noticed Minerva. Her hair was a wild mess, and her face screwed in anger. And Minerva's eyes burned a fiery light, just like her's. Seve
Time StopperI had woken up in the dead of night, lying on one of the many lab tables in Dr. Wily's lab, as though a flash of something had flickered through my mind like a precious flash of time. Time that I would never get back again. I remember the dream I had woken up from; it's the same dream I've had for years, ever since my defeat at the hands of Mega Man. I'm staring down the barrel of the Mega Buster, my eyes pinned, my body locked in place as though the Time Stopper were stopping me instead, pleading for my life. Mercy comes in the form of a plasma shot, a gentle blow compared to the blades that the boy in blue used to rip me limb from limb.Time Stopper4 years ago in Literature Entries More Like This
I sat up slowly, glancing around the room. There was no one there, even though I swore it felt like someone had just been here. Everything looked the same as it always did. That was, except for a small clock that rested next to me. It was a blue rimmed clock with a

Have perceived the extent of my potential, have defeated many a foe, and have far surpassed my inferior brethren. Yet, I feel nothing. Atop a throne of fire and rusted metal, the remnants of my home, I stand. Perplexed.
Is this what I was meant to accomplish?
Is this my... purpose?When all is said and done, in accomplishing everything, I have accomplished nothing. In my perfection, I am missing something, but what? Has it any meaning? My powers, my intellect, my birth?
I...The day of my awakening was not the day I came into being. What it not merely a dream? A figment of my imagination? No, there must be something more to this.
Of course, it's coming back to me!
The day of by birth, my true birth.
Something...Shifting through the broken steel, I searched, hoping that what was able to put me into existence could also put back what I had lost. For days on end I continued, frustrated that the mind of one who has conque
Rockman: Skimming Through Time"..." Quint knew that he shouldn't have held off looking in the attic. Good Light, the place was a mess. Sometimes, he wondered what Michelle, the old woman that had been the previous owner of the shop, had been up to beforehand. "Ugh. Time to clean." The dust in the attic caused the old robot to sneeze a few times as it clogged his filtration system.Rockman: Skimming Through Time4 years ago in Literature Entries More Like This
"Most of this stuff is just pure junk, anyways." The green-clothed robot sighed, taking his hat off and smacking it a few times to clean it. This only caused more dust to lodge in his system, making him cough this time. "There's got to be something in this box worth selling - hm?" He squinted, wiping his glasses off on his jacket.
He supposed he shouldn't have been surprised to see it in a fortune-telling shop of all things, but it still startled him. "A pocketwatch? I thought these things were ancient." Quint picked the watch up, studying it a few times. It was fairly old-fashioned, with a stopper on the top to set the time. W
A brief moment to say goodbyeThen: In a brief moment a thousand regrets flowed through her mind, regrets that built up and were shoved away as she watched the fireball that had been the plane that her parents as well as her brother and sister had been on crash hard into the tarmac, windows close to the crash breaking into pieces, a parked plane close to it losing a wing, people screaming.A brief moment to say goodbye4 years ago in Literature Entries More Like This
She doesn't hear the people screaming, all she sees are the regrets and the loss of all those she loves.
One brief moment was all it took, a moment to last an eternity in her dreams.
Now: As usual for a Q, he appears suddenly without any consideration that Reina Beaumont, at that exact moment, wouldn't exactly be in the best position for company. Being naked after a shower wasn't a good way to greet guests, expected or unexpected.
"Cover your eyes or so help me I'll kick you through the bulkhead!" Reina screams in anger as she hastily grabs a towel and wraps it around hers
Lenalee Saving TimeFor all the times she knew she couldLenalee Saving Time4 years ago in Literature Entries More Like This
She used a clock, carved of dark wood
She did what she was sure she should
It was what she had to do
And for eight minutes, the girl, she goes
To a time where nobody knows
And in this time she carefully chose
She knows it all to be true
There, a boy, younger than she
Sat by the grave, laid under a tree
She looked and she wondered if he could be free
As tears fall from his face
She walks forward, and looks in his eyes
She then feels his pain, and why the boy cries
She too feels sad, when a loved one dies
That's why she came to this place
She tells him that it will all be okay
The boy, he will live, and see the next day
All of her words seem to be fey
And yet, the little boy grins
He then understands he shouldn't be sad
His Mana, his father, wished him to be glad
And when you think about it, it isn't that bad
His journey had yet to begin
And Lenalee smiles, and as the boy goes
She makes sure none of her emotions show
She makes herself think she wants
Last WishThe sun...? But I thought the sky was so cloudy... Thought a young boy, clad in winter clothing.Last Wish4 years ago in Literature Entries More Like This
An endless expanse of blue stretched across the heavens, with not a single puff in it. Flowers dotted the fields that lay ahead of him. It all seemed like a dream to him... and yet, he felt cold. It was a chill from within his body, and despite the scarf he wore, the boots, the leggings, the shirt, everything on him, he was bitten by ice. Hopefully, the temperate environment would defrost him. The boy soon diverted his direction to the rusted pocket watch that he discovered in the snow earlier. The hour's hand was set at noon, while the minute's hand was a few spaces above the two mark. Altogether it read eight minutes. But what caught this child's sapphire eyes was the seconds' hand- it was ticking backward. A flaw?
"Hey, Chocobo, did you like the Greens?" rang a girl's voice.
"Kweh!" came the response.
Raffaello froze in his tracks. "Why... it sounds familiar..." As he stepped forw
Yes, I love cartoonsHe stared blankly at that mysterious tool of unfathomable power. The chance to turn back time... at the same time, a great opportunity and a potential threat. "One-time only", the instructions said, which made him feel quite relieved, as there wasn't going to be any sequel to what he was about to do, and was now more than ever sure of wanting to do: a travel to the past.Yes, I love cartoons4 years ago in Literature Entries More Like This
But what about his current life and friends? The brief, next-to-runic paragraph written in old, no longer used Gothic characters only specified how to turn the clock to get the wanted date in the past. There was no indication regarding what would have been of him after that. He'd have gone back to that one time for eight minutes, maybe, providing it was no prank; and then? Was there any guarantee he'd have come back to the present after that?
Not in the least. It was all a challenge, all about risk and the power of curiosity to overcome human fear. He took a deep breath, exhaled, then placed his skinny fingers on the e

Edward Elric climbed out of the hospital bed he had sat in for many months after an intense battle with a mysterious enemy. He had defeated the cloaked opponent but had barely escaped with his life. He was battered, bruised and bloody after his intense fight, but now he was ready to help Alphonse try to get his body back. Sitting up, Ed noticed his state alchemists' pocket-watch sitting on the bed-side table; it had a note tied around the chain. The note was hole-punched, with a black ribbon tying it to the chain. Edward picked up the watch, opened the note and read allowed, "Our gift to you, with the upgrades we made to your watch, you can go back to any point in time prior to this moment for a total of eight minutes. Use it wisely." Alphonse ducked and stepped in through the doorway.
"What's that brother?" Alphonse asked.
"Al you know the fight I told you about That put me in here?" Ed said nervously. "Yeah, the guy was cloaked right?" "Al asked.
