What a Wonderful WorldI’m noticing thingsWhat a Wonderful World11 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I didn’t before;
Things that I
Just can’t ignore.
Kids getting shot
For the colour of their skin,
Loving being treated
As though it’s a sin.
Sexism running like blood
Through the veins of the media,
Kids killing kids
In High School Hysteria.
People dying instead of
Being who they are,
Children getting shot down
As they reach for the stars.
Faith forming the target
For society’s arrow,
You’re either in too deep
Or you’re way too shallow.
The faithful using the Prince of Peace
To excuse their hatred,
And yelling ‘terrorist!’
At the followers of Mohammed.
Women walking the streets at night
With fear in their hearts,
Men being told to ‘man up’
When their soul is in parts.
Children starving to death
In the land of plenty,
Bigots with medieval views
In the twentieth century.
Erwin x Reader x Levi - ProtectionErwin x Reader x Levi - Protection1 day ago in Romance More Like This
Erwin never imagined back then that one person could so drastically change his life. One person would put all sorts of new colors into his life, another would take that all away. It was as if he had glimpsed at the bright gates of heaven, only to drop down and be stuck in a miserable hell. And the worst part was knowing that nothing would change, this was his infinite fate. He was alone, and he'd die just like that. Alone; with no one that cared for him. You, on the other hand, had a life of fulfillment, and because of that, he supposed that he was content with his fate. He did love you after all, and he vowed always to protect you.
When he met you at age 15, you were just a naïve child, unexposed to the darkness of being a soldier in the Survey Corps. And you had that smile on your face, one he was sure would disappear after your first expedition. But it didn't. Not that you were an over-optimistic fool, but you never lost that inner joy that made you star

Be it my pride or dignity.
You may throw insults at me,
And burn the shredded pieces of my sanity.
You may belittle me, as much as you want,
If only to make your meager life worth living.
But even if you do all that...
No one will protect you when I pull you into the dark.
No one will try to search for you, as my leather ropes tie you down.
No one will hear your screams as metallic screws drive into your face,
Etching an eternal smile, since you'll never leave this place...
"Now then, my dear sweet James, shall we play our favourite game?"

Again...and again...and again...and again, I read the same damn sentence until I am sure my fucking eyeballs would melt out of my skull. The strong, backlight from the screen burn them, only making me more pissed off than before. The clock ticks way and serves as a reminder that I’ve done nothing.
No new pages, no new paragraphs, not even a lousy sentence. Just a good five hours wasted away.
As I turn away from the screen, the darkness of our bedroom only thickens. All I can do is gaze into the curtain until my shitty eyes could adjust to the lack of light. I swear I can hear my worthless joint crack with every movement. As I lean again the space of wall next to the window, I turn to the bed, where you are curled up, head sinking into the downy pillow. You look like such an idiot, your hair sticking to your face, mouth hanging open, arm halfway dangling off the bed, and your muscles s

Dear (your name),
I know it’s supposed to be ‘Dear Diary’, but I don’t want to keep these damm personal feelings for myself. I want you to know, so I’m writing to you.
Remember when you gave this diary to me? You told me to start writing on it after you would pass away and continue until I join you.
Well, today was the day you left me from this world. How dare you do this to me? You promised me you would never leave me! That we would be one happy family like you had always wanted. Why does this have to happen to me? Everytime I start getting close to or loving someone, something happens to them, and it’s usually not for the best. I had warned you. But you didn’t seem to care. Stupid brat.
You told me this morning you were going to be okay, that you were strong enough. I believed you, but everyone knew, including us, that your body was too weak. And now, I have to raise our daughter, Mikas

Your cheeks were burning brightly into a dark shade of red, so much so that you could practically feel the heat emanating from your face and into the air. Your arms were almost trembling as you kept a firm hold on the book in your hands, your eyes so glued to the pages that you couldn’t seem to falter your gaze anywhere else.
The book you were holding was Hentai.
And you were in it.
Your throat was stuck, almost clogged together by machines that denied to work, as you continued to stare at the erotic picture in front of you. You honestly couldn’t even think straight; this situation was definitely not something you were prepared for.
You had gone to Kiku’s house to spend some time with him but for some odd reason, he didn’t seem to be about. You would have left if it wasn’t for a note that he left in the kitchen, telling you that he had gone to a meeting and would be back soon, so you could make yourself at him (he knew you very

The sky rumbled with a haughty authority, the sheer power of the thunder making the ground shake. The sounds rolled in with each quick flash of red hot lightning that back lit the black clouds. Two shadowy figures fled down the streets of Iwatobi, holding each others hands as they tried to keep ahead of the rain.
"It'll be quicker to go to my house." Makoto decided, glancing up at street sign.
You eagerly nodded at the chance to get out of this terrible weather. Fat drops of rain started to drip from the clouds, soon gathering in large silver sheets water. The roads seemed longer than usual in your miserable state. You both stumbled around in the blinding storm, trooping up the steep steps to Makoto's home. He somehow found his keys in his sopping bag to let the both of you rush inside.

Antonio sat in the park, his back against the tree as he tied blades of grass into knots. He was tired of all the labels that were put on him. Just because he raised and cared for Romano, doesn't mean that's he's a pedophile! Sometimes he wished he could just disappear. Whether they were jokes or not, they still hurt him. He loves children! They're wonderful and delightful to be around.
Suddenly a soccer ball rolled towards him. Turning his head, he saw a small group of children. After a few moments, the youngest walked towards him. Smiling, he waved at the Spaniard, who waved back.
"H-HI! Sorry for disturbing you....but can we have the ball back?" Antonio smiled and handed the boy the ball. Giving him a quick thanks, he turned to go back to his friends. But...he paused. Looking back at Antonio, and then back at his friends, he sighed. Waving goodbye to Antonio, he went back to his friends. After the game started up again, the Spaniard decided he had better find somewhere e

Knight!Karkat X Princess!Reader
Once upon a time, there was a kingdom ruled by a kind Queen and a generous King.
The rulers were known for their generous and gentle personalities, loved by many.
The King was a strong, independent and serious one. Yet generous, funny and kind-hearted.
The Queen was a wise, mature and powerful one. Yet gentle, helpful and mother-like.
The people really liked their rules, and lived happily in the kingdom.
They were very happy when they heard that the King and Queen soon were having a baby. And so, the villagers partied.
The ruler’s knights and mages, happy by the notice, too partied. But were still aware of the dangers that could come.
The King’s knights were strong and fearless. The mages were wise and strong-willed. They, too, had descendants.
And so, months later, a baby girl was born.
Her small, (y/c) hair was slightly curly, matching her skin color.
Her tiny, chubby hands calmly laid on her chest, the baby sleeping soundly.

"Now who the hell do you think you are to tell me what to do?"
"I have been ordered by the commander to instruct today's training exercises, (Last Name) stand at attention or else."
Reluctantly, you sighed, staring back at Levi, who just happened to be your equal as far as military ranks went. Stiffening your posture, you saluted him before he began to saunter away, a smug look in his eyes.
For the next ten minutes or so, Levi demonstrated techniques that could be executed with the 3DMG and ways they could twist their blades in order to get a better cut. However, after the first ten minutes, he stopped.
"Damn it's too fucking hot." He grumbled, stripping off his jacket, upper belts (those that wrapped around his chest, back, etc.) and finally, his light grey shirt, throwing them on to the ground next to him, placing his clean white cravat on top of it all. Looking around, you noticed that nearly all the females were in awe, maybe even drooling,

When Makoto kissed her for the first time [Name] felt as if her life was complete. People would probably laugh at her for being so happy for just getting a kiss on the cheek but it was really something special to her.
The upperclassman she loved and longed for, for so long finally returned her feelings properly. Any girl would be happy even if it was something wrong. [Name] remembered how both of them were totally red in the face and how she was shaking slightly because she was so nervous.
It was after school. No one was around in his classroom when she decided to drop by to thank him for the notes he let her borrow. Then it happened. Makoto confessed to her and swooped down to kiss her on the cheek quickly.
He must have been as nervous as she was because the moment he was done he avoided eye contact and looked straight to the side. [Name] felt extremely lightheaded at time because of his action and if it wasn't for a desk that was next to her then she would have p

Evric had zipped his jacket almost all the way up, leaving a small gap so that he could hold Ellie against his chest, the flaps of the jacket and his hand covering her from the drenching rain.
Ellie’s heart was pounding in rhythm with Evric’s gargantuan footsteps, yet she felt safe and warm in his grasp for once. Yes, the wind was still tossing her reddish-brown hair into her face, but every other part of her was covered.
Tired of having to squint, Ellie faced the wall of warm blue shirt fabric. She let her knuckles go white as they grabbed at it, and then she burrowed hard against what she briefly forgot was Evric. That was, until she felt his larger-than-life heart softly pummeling against her, shaking her to the core but also calming her.
His fingers curled firmly but tenderly around her, allowing her to relax without the worry that she might fall. She was comfortably curled up, leaning against the taren’s warm body, but at the same time she was anxious.
