Levi X Short!Shy!Reader [AU]The word anger was an understatement to describe how you were feeling right at the moment, a far better word would be absolutely furious. The reason was the person sat at the desk opposite you. He was the new guy, Levi was his name and you had the delight of being forced into socializing with him. Usually when a new person came to work at the office, one of the louder and more sociable employees would introduce themselves and show them around, but your boss Erwin has insisted -no practically shoved you- towards the raven haired male.Levi X Short!Shy!Reader [AU]1 week ago in Short Stories
After a minute passed you had summed up the courage to say hello to Levi, telling him your name in a quiet voice. You were expecting a simple greeting back, but no. He scoffed at you and looked away, muttering his name to you in a rude manner. So yes, this man has indeed angered you deeply.
‘I’ve not done anything wrong to him, so there’s no need for him to be such a…’ Your thoughts trailed off as you stare at the

Chapter 3 “World Building” – Section 1 “History”
“Man is explicable by nothing less than all his history. Without hurry, without rest, the human spirit goes forth from the beginning to embody every faculty, every thought, every emotion, which belongs to it in appropriate events.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essay I, History
From the events which take place in your novel, to the culture of the people groups present, to the attitudes present in the characters, to the nature of the cosmos and the natural consequences of actions, everything in your story will be rooted in the history of the world. Each of your characters will start out as the sum of everything they've experienced, thought, and done, before the story even began. The society of the world

Maggie runs to the gates of the school, fresh off the bus, two large wheeled suitcases in tow behind her. She looks down at her watch. 9:55 AM, 25 minutes late for this semester's opening ceremony. This is her first year at Sugarton's, having scored an amazing scholarship that you couldn't turned down. Money is slim pickings where Maggie is from, so she has to take whatever she can get, and this scholarship to a fancy private school will definitely help her get into college. Missing the bus and coming late was not a good start to the day.
Pressing a small buzzer, Maggie waits as a slacking, overweight security guard rises from her outpost to unlock the tall, harrowing gat

50 Reasons why SJWs Suck1. They oppose freedom of speech. When someone says something they don't like, calling it "hate speech."50 Reasons why SJWs Suck1 day ago in Editorial
2. They cannot stand ideas which contradict them, which is why they hide in "safe spaces."
3. They label their opponents "bigots", no matter what the actual views of their opponents are.
4. They try to turn colleges into their home, trying to close their minds rather than open them.
5. They wish to infantilize universities by placing "trigger warnings" or outright banning material which they disapprove of, such as Greek mythology.
6. They claim to speak for everyone who isn't white, male, or straight.
7. They claim that any minorities or women who disagree with them are suffering from "internalized misogyny" or other form of self-hatred.
8. They cannot back up their claims with facts.
9. They push for censorship of information they do not like, as their claims cannot stand up to scrutiny.
10. They consider consensus more important than the truth. In other words, if a lot of SJWs agr
The Cutie Re-Mark - ReviewThe Cutie Re-Mark - Review3 days ago in Reviews & Guides
As usual with my reviews, it will contain spoilers. Those of you who have not watched the episode yet, you have been warned.
The premise for this story is that Starlight Glimmer, vengeful after her defeat by Twilight and her friends, conjures a spell that could change Equestria’s history forever.
So, here we are, the season finale. And we start things off by having the episode make good on a concept that I have long hoped the series would explore more; time travel. Ever since it was introduced back in season two’s “It’s About Time”, I have very much looked forward to the day when the show would explore this concept more. It’s a massive idea that this kind of power, to go into the past and even potentially alter the way things play out, was brought up only to be ignored in succeeding episodes. Although Twilight herself hoped to use it at the time to make a big change to the way things went for her, nobody else in the show ever commented on it or how b
Pound for Pound [xWG, Slob]Chel had to wonder why the gods were so vehemently against her as she was dragged into the city. She could feel the leering eyes on her back as the guards forced her to pay for her most recent theft, knowing that the new chief of the city would not be pleased to hear this. Chel knew little of this new leader of their group as they had a change in power, and with it, some radical improvements. The only cost was a restricted lifestyle as this new head of the people was firm with enforcing his rules and judgment. As Chel stumbled up the steps, she knew full well that the older chief could not save her nor would anyone be willing to step to her defense to aid her; not with her track record of crimes and mischief in the city.Pound for Pound [xWG, Slob]6 days ago in Short Stories
"My Lord, we found her at it again!" The guard called into the chambers, tossing Chel in as she looked up in a panic. The chief was not easily seen, wearing robes and a cowl decorated to look like a jaguar. She didn't know what to make of it since she couldn't see his

Mid-Day, Outworld Marketplace
The marketplace of Outworld was busy, as per usual. Contrary to how one might view this realm, the citizens here were for the most part ordinary people going about their ordinary lives, bartering with the stall vendors and shopping for dinner.
In the sea of dreary brown and muted colours though, one particular individual stood out.
Wearing a form fitting purple shirt with even more form fitting pants, the muscular individual moved through a throng of people, almost as if he was lost.
Which was entirely the case, given that Jonathan Joestar belonged in Victorian England, not some distant realm in the future.
Scratching his head, Jonathan decided to follow the crowd, his attempts at trying to ask for directions only resulting i
DC: Arik TorresDC: Arik Torres3 days ago in Plot Outlines & Synopses
Name: Arik Torres
Age: 15/16 (S1), 21 (S2)
Birthday: November 19th
Blood Type: O+
Astrological Sign: Scorpio
Sexual Orientation: ??? (TBA)
Past/Bio: Arik grew up with an overprotective and overbearing mother and a business man father. Just add a grainy effect and the appropriate clothing and they'd look like they came straight out of one of those cheesy 50s scenes depicting the perfect American life. Arik's mother was an issue for Arik from the age of eight and up. She would constantly worry he would get hurt- physically and mentally- and thus restricted who he could be friends with, what he could do after school and the like. When Arik was eight, he started to rebel against this overprotectiveness.
Full bio coming soon via ff.net and possibly AO3.
[Undertale] 'His Theme' with LyricsMy name is Asriel,[Undertale] 'His Theme' with Lyrics6 days ago in Songs & Lyrics
I know it seems surreal,
But down in the Underground,
That name is finely sound.
I had a happy home,
One thousand years ago,
But what won't leave my head,
Was when I found them dead,
A human fell inside,
Glad that they had survived,
I brought them back with me,
For my parents to meet.
"Howdy!" I called to them,
It was a real godsend.
I soon received an answer:
"Hello, my name's Chara."
I thought that we'd be friends,
Until the very end,
I saw their lack of will,
As they started to kill.
First, my mother went down,
They escaped into town,
Laid waste upon the land,
'Til they were stopped by Sans.
He was not too best pleased,
No way for him to ease,
"I've never met an iller,
dirtier brother killer."
He was struck with their blade,
His sockets filled with hate,
They turned to me as he fell,
"Welcome to unholy hell."
They soon pulled out their knife,
Desired to take my life,
In order to save mine,
I must reset the timeline,
Corrupt with genocide,
For ErosOnce I felt thatFor Eros1 week ago in Free Verse
Words poetic for Eros,
from a poet, aren't worthy.
That such words would be Worthy,
Only if the poet, even a bad one,
was born from Eros.
And I was right,
As I didn't know that he could be reborn.
But again there was something I was missing.
In this war
is something you must see,
but also and even more than anything else,
you must feel
in your hug and in your heart,
strong and without a reason.
You must feel it;
into your hug
stronger than to your eyes.
You must feel it;
into your heart,
before your mind.
Over Desire, Before Love.
Unbowed and Unexplainable,
may beat it,
will never kill it.
may beat it,
will surely ask for it.
Unbowed and Unexplainable,
Over Desire, Before Love.

The Mistletoe Mishap
Karkat x Reader
Your feet crunched along in the white fluff that covered the sidewalk. Snow. Sometimes you loved it, sometimes you hated it. Right now you thought it looked pretty, but it was getting in the way of your mad dash to the home of one of your troll friends. It was barely twenty minutes ago that you had been pestered by the nubby horned troll known as Karkat Vantas. He had told you that he had been out shopping for Christmas decorations and reluctantly asked for your help putting them up.
You were quite happy to jump at the chance to spend time with Karkat considering you've been flushed for him for a while now. If someone were to ask you when exactly you fell hard for the swear happy troll, you honestly wouldn't be able to answer. It was just one of those things that happened. Although, you were pretty sure you had a snowballs chance in hell of winning him over. The last time you checked, Karkat was still flushed for Terezi. You
