Setting: Portal 2 - Chapter 4: The Return

In an eternal instant, the world changed. 
He knew of one reason, of just one reason, that explained why he would wake.  Here, like this, in the middle of the once-proud cracked walls and shattered windows. 
She was not awake, not yet.  Still she remained in her artificial slumber, but it would not last.  He knew it.  If he was here, now, then so were others.  It did not matter who.  It did not matter why.  But he had been told long ago that his purpose was to hold her back, and so he would. 
He scrambled down from his perch, paying no attention to the stuttering echo of the voice cheerfully spinning a tale of impending doom across the thousands of like locations spanning across the land, and he hoped she was awake.  Not the one who was in man-induced suspension, but the other one, the one who would

TF: Old Soldier FIRST DRAFT Contest Entry
Title: Transformers: Old Soldier FIRST DRAFT Contest Entry
Universe: G1 (Pre-Earth)
Pairings: None
Rating: PG
Warnings: Violence, Non-canon character death
Author's Note: This is my (mostly) unedited first draft. The contest specified minimal editing, which was extremely difficult for me. While I don't think this is bad, it's not as refined as I'd normally post. In fact, there are two details which need work/editing. Hopefully, they're not as obvious to others as they are to me (since I'm super critical of my own work).
Smoke hung heavy over Praxus, obscuring optics and clogging vents. Here, the once proud city-state stood cracked and charred, covered in ash. The glorious crystals of the Helix Gardens, the pinnacle of Cybertronian art and beauty, lay shattered. Many of the civilians were gone, long since fled or dead. Those that remained had abandoned their civilian ways, forced into more militaristic roles.

    My breath grew shallow as I ran senseless in the world blocking off all comications. Rain drops fell from the pitch black clouds blocking off the bright innocent sun. I was just sick of it,of everything. I wanted to be anywhere but here, but I mostly desired a place of paradise for me. I didn't want to feel the burning pain embed into the strains of my heart again. But was there really such a place where you could feel protected and safe. Doubt overwelmbed me as i knew no matter how much i persuded myself it was true it would simply backfire me.
I slowly came to a stop as tears came flowing down my cheeks without my permission but I couldn’t stop myself just from mere will power. Ever since i started the academy I was consently being bullied about my bloodline. The words now echoed though out the shell of my mind.
“You’re just like your cousin Neji, thinking you are better than the rest of us”

Coming Down From the Clouds
Briar Rose woke up. She had never woken up like this before. Her lips were all warm as something pressed against them. Her body was feeling so strange like something was flowing out of her.
She wasn’t sure she wanted to wake up. The dreams had been so good. She had been dreaming about her true love, the young man from the forest she had met that day, or was it yesterday?
Would she ever be happy again after what had happened?
She was awake and could not sleep again, so she opened her eyes.
Before her was the young man from the forest, the prince from her dreams, her true love. She smiled. She could see the fairies that had been her aunts tiny and floating by the ceiling.
“Good morning, sleeping beauty.” He smiled at her. “Do you remember me, from the forest?”
She nodded and saw the fairies fly out the window.
“Good. My name is Phillip, Prince Phillip. We are betrothed.”
Betrothed, she knew that word. A word that had crushed her heart. She had be

There is no one who truly knows how to face the end that lies beyond the end of the world. One day, the seven Moons shine beneath the Sea of Enkre, as they are supposed to, and the next day you find yourself drifting away, your world diminished to a mere fragment of what it used to be. You open your eyes in the light of the Moons and for a moment you forget about the cataclysm from the night before, or you think everything was just a bad dream. You look around at the alabaster walls around you, still intact, and you tell yourself all is as before. You tell yourself there was no Armageddon, no catastrophe, you tell yourself those galaxies, all those people in them, could not have perished. But then you walk outside and you see there are only six Moons. Time drifts by and people start speaking of strange things, of cities of fire standing on the edge of the Sea of Enkre, and cliffs of ice standing beside them, and you notice there are only five Moons left.
By the time you are down to you

Check and Mate (First Draft)
Shikamaru continued signing the after action reports, ignoring the loud music and the raucous laughter outside. Parties just weren’t his thing. Even a blowout to celebrate the end of the Fourth Great war.
Even after he had dismissed them, his squad mates had tried their best to convince him to join them in the festivities. Ino had practically danced back into the tent, her long blonde hair flowing behind her, giving him a forced, flirtatious wink. “Come with us Shikamaru!” she had teased, the smile beaming through her sorrow and loss. “The war’s over! We won! Surely we can forget the paperwork and live a little!”
Ino had been drowning in her grief. She desperately needed an escape from the reality of things dragging her down. The optimal solution had easily presented itself.
His response had been a simple shrug. “Parties are such a drag... Standing around talking to people you barely know and will likely never meet again... I’m fine, beli

Still the Same Girl (Revised)
The Abyss was singing her to Its bedside tonight, unfolding black sheets into soft and smoky wisps. Let go, It hummed. You gave so much already. Come rest, Nami. There’s no sense in fighting it any longer.  
A few steps away from Bell-mère's grave, Nami’s body stood in the moon’s pale and unflattering glow. Her mind, however, wandered elsewhere, opening fragile memories she swore she’d never touch again.
She drew in a sharp, cold breath and hung her head low. Nami was as worn as an old sail flapping limply on the high seas. Those fierce winds, once filling her with joy, now seeped through holes that had been torn through her spirit. Many had knifed Nami, but none so much as her sister. Nojiko’s last words weaved in and out of her head: “You're still the same girl.”
Nojiko.
She couldn't have been more wrong than a rock with an eye patch. That so-called “girl" had perished with her mother, Bell-mère.

A Dark Horizon (Betamatch Final)
Summer was over, that much was certain. As the sun set, muted fall colors drew her gaze to the city, waiting as the moon rose in the oddly black sky above. It seemed as though the stars were afraid to shine, too scared to show themselves. But the worst part was the wind, a steady breeze that, as the moon rose, grew stronger, fingers of squalling gusts clawing through tree branches and abandoned swing sets.
Had the citizens of Reidington been awake, they would have noticed the sudden darkness that overtook the city as the clock struck midnight. They would have noticed the snapping of branches in the rough winds. They would have noticed the starless sky and the dark streets. However, despite their slumber, they all shared one thing as the wind blew: A nightmarish glimpse into a world not one of them could bear to live in.
Sakura Avalon was no exception; she lay in her bed, sheets tangling around her body as she tossed and turned. Beads of sweat trickled down her brow and a soft cry escap

The Abyss was tempting again tonight. Just a few steps away from Bell-mère's grave it called Nami to take a final rest, too. Let go, It whispered. You gave so much already. Nami was as weary as an old sail hanging limply in the wind. No fierce wind could fill her with joy again, it all seeped through the holes that had been torn into her.
“You're still the same girl.”  Nojiko had told her. She couldn't have been more wrong. The girl that was Nami had died along with her mother as Arlong had shot her. Just when Nami had finally been ready to call Bell-mère by that name. Mother. And Nami had died again when she was forced to work for Arlong's crew. The flag that killed her mother forever stitched into her arm as an irremovable stain of sin. And then maybe a third time, as she told the other villagers and was shunned for betraying her own mother. She withheld the real reason why she did so, didn't want to share the burden.

Episodes of Neville’s Perspective in Hogwarts during the Second Wizarding War
  Neville Longbottom gazed out at the passing scenery, feeling the slight rocking of the Hogwart’s Express. Darkness have fallen onto the landscape hours ago, an indication they were near the great castle.
  “Everything is going to change now, isn’t it?” Ginny Weasley suddenly spoke up.
  “At Hogwarts?” Luna Lovegood responded dreamingly.
  “Yeah at Hogwarts...”
  Hogwarts. Everything will change. The Death Eaters have infiltrated the school and positioned Professor Snape, the traitor, as the headmaster of the school. What Neville couldn’t understand is how someone can be so twisted that they could betray something that kept them in a safe haven for a long time.

Towering above the surrounding ruins, the smoking husk of the Assembly sat. Not so long ago, this building thrived, the center of all Praxian culture and business. Grand halls held concerts, games, presentations, assemblies, and exhibits, and all manner of art and technologies were gathered and displayed here. It was the heart of Praxus.
It had been the first Decepticon target in Praxus.
The Assembly still stood… mostly. One wing had entirely collapsed. Windows had long since shattered under the onslaught. From several of the gaping holes, smoke trickled out. But it still stood,

NaruHina: Inseparable (Edited)
My breath grew shallow as I ran. I was deaf and blind to the world, ignoring everything but the pounding of my own feet. Rain drops fell from the brooding black clouds blocking off the bright innocent sun. I was just sick of it... sick of everything. I wanted to be anywhere but here.
If you had asked me on a better day,  I would have said all I wanted was a small place of sanctuary. Somewhere I wouldn’t feel the burning pain etched into my heart over and over again. But was there really such a place where you could feel protected and safe? Life had taught me, no matter how much I wished and pleaded for such a  place to exsist, I would always be disappointed.
The tears came flowing down my cheeks mixing with the rain. My father always turned away when I cried. I always tried to hold them back  but I couldn’t ever stop myself. Truly blinded now, I slowly came to a stop.
Ever since I started the Academy I was constantly being bullied about my bloodline. The word
