i cradle my hope
with both hands,
as if holding it close
will give it the warmth
to stay alive.
when you come near
it flares and rustles,
begging to take flight;
yet i am both caress
we have confused our signals,
mixed our drinks and

but you are eager to eclipse
so you run.
i'm too afraid to ask,
but at least the question's
we're both cowards.

“There, now you are even cuter than before,” you sad to an excited grub. You had dressed little Sollux up as a bee and he began running around trying to make a buzzing sound. His yellow tongue was sticking out of his mouth as he made more of a raspberry sound. You laughed and picked up the baby bee. “Calm down, Sol,” you patted his head. He shook it in response and clung to your shirt. This little guy had become attached to you. There was still no explanation on how he got this way, but you didn’t care. He was so squishy, warm, and cute. Wrigglers looked like caterpillars and caterpillars were always adorable to you.
“Hey!” a voice called. It was your best friend, (friend’s name). “What is that?” (he/she) asked staring ath Sollux in your arms.
“It’s Sollux, remember the trolls that we met? Somehow he turned into a little baby troll,” you explained.

The winter´s night was crisp and clear,
the heaven full of stars
and all the ones who saw the signs,
came there from near and far.
They followed one bright shining star,
to a place called Bethlehem.
To a stable on the edge of town
and Joseph beckoned them in.
"Look!" He cried with tears in his eyes.
"Mary´s had a child."
"He´s wonderful, so precious. Stay
and behold him for a while."
"He will grow to be a good man,
clever, wise and mild."
"He´ll teach the world about love and
to have faith in all mankind."
Joseph smiled as his head did nod
and this he also said,
"This child is someone special,
for he was sent to us from God."

You had never been more aggravated in your entire life. Which you were fairly certain was expressed as you stormed into the flat, slamming your SHIELD crap on the floor and making a beeline for the bar. Tony smirked, quirking an eyebrow as he downed a shot of whiskey. Pietro looked amused, Bruce looked away, and Steve was the only one (that you noticed), with a hint of concern on his face.
“Guys, set me up with a hard one.” You grumbled, pulling up a barstool and plopping down next to Clint, who just happened to be there, too.
“Rough day?” Tony mused, and you groaned dramatically, dropping your head to your hands.
“The worst day.. of my life.” You mumbled, shaking your head. You still couldn’t believe everything that had happened, and it wasn’t getting better now that you had the opportunity to brood on it. Thor and Loki, who had been sitting and chilling in the living area, had both glanced up at the sound of your voice.

On the run - Chapter 1
The sun was shining brightly, while Steve was driving his bike through the streets of New York. He liked the feeling of the wind tugging his hair and the tingling sensation the warm sunrays spread over his skin.
He had just been at the Smithsonian to look at the special exhibition they had put up in his honor. He didn’t know how he felt about that. They made him out to be a superhero, but he doubted he could live up to that. Sometimes he just wished he could have a normal life. A life with a family, friends… even a girlfriend or just someone to love.
Steve swallowed hard thinking about that as he drove up to the elderly home Peggy was staying in. He parked his bike on the parking lot and made his way over to the entrance. He had been here a couple of times, but it was still hard walking through the halls, knowing he should have been here, with her.
He smiled at the nurse behind the check-in desk and turned the corner to g

“Gamzee?” you asked. A small grub came out from behind the huge chair near the door. In his mouth was a horn and he bit on it releasing another honk. “What happened to you? You’re a wriggler now.”
Gamzee dropped his horn and squeaked. The he stepped on it releasing another honk. He came up to you and climbed onto your lap. He was kind of cute, and so innocent looking, especially since he didn’t have on that creepy clown make-up. Not to make any mistakes, you did enjoy Gamzee’s company, but still you weren’t a fan of clowns. He was really your only exception to that hatred.
A voice interrupted your thoughts. “There he is,” it was Karkat. “I fucking told him not to go off!” A laugh escaped your mouth.

The blue hedgehog simply laughed and shrugged,

He ran up to jog next to the ebony male. “Besides, you’re always alone and GUN seems to have you in a grip so- I think it would be great if you came to our celebratory party! Ya’know, to relax and let some steam off!”
Shadow sighed, frustrated with the hedgehog’s persistence. ‘Nuisance’ he scoffed, running off deeper into the forest with Sonic at his heels.
Crystal water came into view as he slowed his skates to a walk. Shadow knelt down and cupped his hands in the water before bringing them back up to drink.

The soft sobs filled the empty space of the shared floor that Thor was on. They were quiet and delicate and, if he was being honest with himself, heartbreaking.
There were only two other people on this floor that he shared, and the crying was too feminine and delicate to be Loki's.
The God of Thunder crept his way through the hallway until he found the room across from his own. The sobs were muffled by the wooden barrier before him and, with what he assumed to be, a pillow. He knocks on the door but is met with no reply. He knocks once again and, this time, he is met with a muffled,

And what I heard was like metastasis,

Meaning it spread and invaded and enveloped;

Then later we watched the pallet-yard burn. The echo, the smoke pouring

Wotan, spin your hammer
that the lightnings sparkling spray,
when the horses pull your carriage,
through dark clouds.
Because of our diligent people,
the stranger's greed is big,
for many thousand years,
we fought for our eternal freedom.
This country wants only peace,
quarrels and disputes are unwanted.
All Germans want to work;
And calm after all that effort.
Come again to earth,
Arminius noble figure of light,
so that we find our eternal peace!
The foreign violence must end.
Days become brighter,
when the foreign force passes.
And in the light of the new morning,
a new time arises.
Order will be in the country,
our effort is worth it,
help the people to strengthen their spirit,
no one will need a shield or sword anymore.
This spirit should inspire us,
to fight for the German Good.
Let us all be united,
give the people courage!
