AddictionYou will fall in love with a boy who overuses the word ‘fate’ but never the word ‘luck’. When he first locks eyes with you outside a packed bar, where the drinks are over-priced and the silence under-rated, he will worry at his lips in a way that will mean you never notice his eyes, his hair, his anything else. This pair of chapped thin lips will ghost towards you, a flash of ivory enamel, a hint of velvet red gums. You will watch them curve and curl into slightly differentiated shapes, a will o’ wisp of words barely audible over the background hum of your friends, buzzing like wasps, on the other side of the door. And you will smell smoke, and didn’t mother tell you where there’s smoke there’s fire. Only then will you notice the cigarette crumbling between long spider fingers, disintegrating into a fine ashen cloud of overcast-january-sky-grey.

“Santa's been here, he left us lots of presents. See you downstairs.” He said and then I grinned as I heard his little slippers clomp down the steps.

“Esmar, it will fade your youthful beauty.”
“Beauty is fleeting, and no one ever knows exactly when it will fade. If I was lit like a torch in the night, my beauty would flee and leave scars in its wake; if I was hit by a car tomorrow, blood would stain my face a permanent and coppery red. If I lose my beauty, I will also lose my life, not because I choose to, but because society is fickle.”
“Goddamn,” Arthur Deans whispered, turning his gaze from the younger man to the silent stars. His breath was like a ghost in the cold December air—indeed it was a replica of Esmar’s cigarette smoke, and he laughed upon making the connection.
“If you could command God, Arthur, we would all be in a predicament that the devil would envy.” Esmar Kirsanov said

I watched the kids swarm around my Nikes with a smile. My right foot was resting on its side and the kids were using it as a small climbing wall. On the left, Kiddo had enticed a few others to help him try to figure out how to untie it. The two or three not climbing or looking at my shoelaces were examining the logo on my shoes. It was like they couldn’t get over the texture as they ran their tiny hands over it. A triumphant crow from the top of my lift shoe drew my attention back to Kiddo and friends as they pulled my shoelace, untying it. I chuckled as one of the loops shrank a little from the kids’ efforts. What really got me was that it was taking four of them to do what I could with one hand.
“You don’t mind them doing that?” Bar-keht asked, walking closer and motioning to the kids untying my shoe. They was a kind of cautious wonder on his face.
“I not mind,” I assured him with a grin. “Easy do again.

Somehow they always ended up in a tangle. It was the same every morning, arms and legs everywhere and the covers half off. The position of the morning was a twisted sort of spooning with a lot of elbow to the chest. And despite the rather uncomfortable nature of this, they had both slept soundly throughout the night. It was only when Sprinkles woke up did he feel the sharp, pointed edges of Jirou’s body digging into his own.
“Jirou,” he groaned, pressing his face against the dog’s back and trying to rub away the sleepiness. “Wake up.”
Jirou didn’t, of course, and just continued to snore softly while locking Sprinkles’s limbs tightly out of use. He could feel the fuzzy static of his arm that was pinned under Jirou

Few had gotten more than three hours of sleep. Jude hadn't slept at all. But he was wide awake. Alert. From the moment he met Penelope back in these very woods, his life had been leading up to this battle.
He was ready.
He looked around at the faces of giants, the faces of humans. Faces of friends, of newfound family; of fathers, mothers. Brothers, sisters. Farmers, preachers, blacksmiths, bakers, doctors, healers. They were all just... people. People looking to him for an example.
With a slight nod of his head, the group of nearly two-hundred men and women began their approach of the glistening city.
"Mama, look! They're back!" A young girl in pigtails pointed out the obvious to her mother from their second-story bedroom. The group of giants and humans alike were spreading through the main part of the city, disarming security enforcers who tried to stop them from entering. Hope glistened in the mother's eyes.

The redheaded cutie was standing at the doorway to her dorm room, which she shared with the love of her life. Her Indian girlfriend was laying on their make-shift double bed, which they had made using bungee cords and their two standard-issue singles. Natalie hadn't acknowledged Sarah, which was no doubt due to the focus that she had achieved on her studying. There had been a paper sign on the door asking for peace and quiet so that Natalie could study for an anatomy test the next day, and Sarah wanted to support her and respect her wishes.

"So, Devastator has finally kicked the bucket, has he? Gotta hand it to him: he lasted far longer than I would have guessed." Xeranad chuckled a little, before setting the paper down.

Only, Mindy didn't think so.
She glared up at her twin Mark from where she lay on the ground, flat on her back. Scowling, she slowly rose to her feet, dusting off the front of her outfit.
"That was cheating!" She pointed a single accusatory finger at him, narrowing her eyes in rage.
"What? You never said I couldn't trip you." Mark said as struck a pose, grinning. "Maybe you just can't handle my awesomeness, sis!"

The Silver Woods were always such a lovely place this time of year, well then again they were rather lovely all year long, but even as autumn yellowed the grass and reddened the leaves on the trees, the Silver Wood seemed eternal. Nothing hardly ever changed, from the thin layer of fog on the ground to the silvery trees and bluish shrubs, the entire place often seemed extraordinarily magical. That was likely why Bones enjoyed it so much. The place helped the old stallion retreat from the hum drum of every day life, and allowed him to daydream without worry. Silver leaves drifted from the trees, resting in the hollows along his back and hips, seeming almost like dainty silver birds catching a ride on the speckled grey blue stallion. He seemed to belong here, somehow ancient yet ageless and eternally cool of temperament.
