The sound of a loud BEEP cut through the air of the quiet and dark room where you slept. Groaning, you began to slap your nightstand in your lazy attempt of finding your cell phone. After feeling a rubbery case, you picked it up, lifted your face from your pillow, eyes open, and unlocked the device, which caused you to squint. Shutting off the alarm that had disturbed you from your dream and locking the phone, you let your head fall back onto the soft and plush pillow.
Pulling your hand back under the covers, taking the phone along with you, you tried to fall back asleep, not wanting to face the day. “It's too early for this,” you yawned out, a small stretch following close after.
As soon as you thought you could get away with sleeping in, you were proven wrong. A hand came on your shoulder and shook it gently, kisses peppering the back of your head and side of your face.
The Cartographer's DaughterEvery night, he would fold her into his arms before she slept. Creases grew into her, turning brown with wear, and she loved them. When she woke up in the night, dreaming of darkness, he would take her to his desk and draw for her a map of her face, turning it into another world. Tracing the contours of her smile, he would scrawl a warning, "Here be monsters", whispering to her that she was a dragon when angry.The Cartographer's Daughter4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As she grew older, she populated his maps with creatures and peoples from the books she read, or her own creations. He taught her to draw, and to write with an old inkpen, in a cursive script her teacher could make neither head nor tail of. She made him angry once, drawing in the drying sand with her finger, and smudging the ink. When he was angry, mountain ranges grew across his forehead and caverns opened in his cheeks. Here be lions.
Walking home from school, she knew the local area inside out; from the maps he had drawn and taught her. He would copy them onto o
Questions I Never Asked My GrandfatherMy grandfather sits in a wheelchair by the window in the old people's home with his chin leaned into his chest, mumbling incessantly and unintelligibly to himself and drooling a little from the right corner of his mouth.

It's a sad end to a long and hard life, and I morbidly think to myself that if a political party stepped forth now with the legalization of euthanasia on its agenda, I'd vote for it. After two strokes and a hemorrhage, topped with severe senile dementia, what is the point of letting people exist like robots? I know grandpa thought the same. Before his speech was impaired, he often said that the pacemaker was one of his biggest mistakes, and that people should be allowed to go when it was time to go.
Terrible as it sounds, I'm already starting to think about the obituary that I, having the best way with words in my branch of the fa

You sat on a sofa in Slenderman Manor, drowning in boredom. A countless number of manga comics lay splayed out on the coffee table infront of you and an empty box from pizza express lay on the floor with an (f/d) bottle next to it. You glanced around the room lazily, looking for someone to hang out with or bug the hell out of. Unluckily, EVERYONE had gone out to go do some killing today. So that left only you, the sofa and a box of anime in the large Manor you called ‘home’.
“Hey Masky, hey Masky, hey Masky! Masky, I know you can hear me!” You turned you head around to spot Ticci Toby, Hoody and Masky walking past the living room in which you lay in. They had finally come back from hunting!

Belarus is protective of her family. Always has been. And when I say protective...I mean really protective. If you were to even THINK about hurting someone dear to her...
You'd end up in a body bag for sure. Don't take me wrong, Belarus isn't a murderous person. Not at all. She's not as cold and shallow-hearted as most people think. She's really kind and lovable once you get to know her. Sure she's a little clingy...but you'd be too if you were in her position.
So, as I was saying. Belarus is very protective. That's why you should never ever mess with her family.
Rule 1: Don't touch Russia.
Rule 2: Don't touch Ukraine.
Rule 3: Don't EVER touch (M/N).
Seriously,unless you want to be hunted down like a rat,don't touch her capital. Minsk, also known as (M/N), is dear to her. Dare I say it,maybe even dearer than her older brother.
So that's why,the man standing in front of her now,is gonna get the beat down.

An adult Burmese cat,with (F/c) fur and (e/c) eyes stood on the edge of a windowsill, keeping its eye on a certain yellow bird that entered its territory. Your tail swayed in anticipation as you slowly inched your way toward the bird.
'Gilbird is not going to escape me this time.'you thought.
You had made many attempts to capture it, but failed a couple of times. The cause of this was the kitten named Itabby. Though he was small, he could jump very high. But his sharp teeth added to that as well. Your last attempt failed because he latched onto your tail, and to something more, fur was taken as well.
As you readied yourself to pounce on the unsuspecting bird, a pained yowl came from underneath you. Your fur stood up on its ends as you hissed at the now fl

And yet I have nothing to show for it.
Had I just gone mad? Was it just a Rainbow Dash plushie that I had imagined as the real thing? And Celestia taking her away was the result of me snapping back to reality after growing up? That would explain a lot, considering everything in this house appeared as though I've been living alone this whole time. The note could have been just me writing things down, and the photos could have been me Photoshopping Rainbow Dash with myself... I think I recall seeing a similar scenario in a video game. You know, back when I had the time for video games.
I just didn't know what to think. My mind couldn't accept such insanity, this

His shoulder shook.
He tried to keep his breathing even. Maybe she'd think he was still asleep.
"Jackson, wake up." His shoulder shook harder. "Wake up. I thought I saw something." His little sister's voice fell into an awed whispering. "I think it might have been Santa Claus."

Alfred coughed up more blood and as it hit the floor, it made a splattering sound. The day was the 11th, September 11th to be exact. Terrorist had attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Alfred fell to his knees, a crippling pain racing through his aching body. He had been coughing up blood and his mind raced with pictures of distressed citizens.
He stumbled into the streets of New York City. He staggered along the streets as his citizens watched, struck with horror. They gazed into the skies as thick black smoke ran gleefully from the Twin towers; they were once so great, so magnificent. But as the law of the universe says; what goes up, must come down. They had one message, and one message only; they want America out of the Middle East.
Suddenly, there was terrible groaning sound emitting from the towers. All Alfred could do was watch, in complete and utter horror as the glass began to break and tiny shards raced to earth.

"It's a girl!" the obstetrician said, holding the small, bloody infant up.
Cloud gasped in relief, tears of pain still running down his cheeks. Sephiroth was staring at the small creature the doctor was gently drying off and wrapping in a blanket. That was that was his child? He'd been expecting it, looking forward to it for so long he honestly did not know how to feel now that he saw it for the first time. His child. His baby. Surely he was supposed to find it overwhelming and beautiful, not a little bit unsettling and strange-looking.
"Oh, wow, she's got so much hair!" one of the nurses cooed. She took the swaddled baby and handed it to Sephiroth, "Congratulations!"
Sephiroth took the baby automatically, looking down at it with a mixture of feelings that he still wasn't sure how he felt about. The newborn blinked unfocused blue eyes at him. Blue, slit-pupil'd eyes.
She had his eyes. Oh, they were Cloud's in color, but other than that bright blue, they were exactly l

You slumped into the wicker chair after a long day of bickering with your little devil, Gilbert, sighing and returning to your favorite book you always read at eight o' clock in the evening sharp. It was a rough life, but as long as you could deal with it one more time, you were alright.

You tied your [h/c] hair into a bun, and slumped over to the kitchen again.

I awoke to the sound of light sobbing coming from the baby-call placed on my bedside. My opinion was we didn't need it anymore, the thing had blown my ear off countless times and I couldn't wait to smash it against the wall, but really, with children you're never too wary. The sound was barely audible, like it was trying to be covered, but after all this months my ears had been trained to recognize it, like a dog that immediately hears the call of his master on a sea of voices. Ugh I swear that girly poetry thing it's the lack of sleep's fault.
"Ngg I thought this was over." I groaned, the clock announced in pure mockery 3:16 in the morning. I felt gross, my mouth was dry and my eyes still blurred with sleep.

She was feeling very and irritable lately, and to say it was understandable was an understatement. She, as well as the other women in the X-men, was about to enter their 16th month of pregnancy. Kitty, however, seemed to be a harder time than some of the others seeing as her mutant powers didn't aid her in her pregnancy much at all. She leaned back into the couch and stretched her back and arms. She stretched her legs as well, not that she could see them, but she stretched them nonetheless. She was just wearing a tank top and her stretch yoga pants, both of which were a bit too small for her. Her tank top only made it partway down her large stomach.

The ruffles of the bed covered the foot of the bed, so logically as the little kids we were, jumping at the foot of the bed was safest. It's what we always did, to get onto the bed and avoid
