Story Summary After their last meeting upon the defeat of Sanctus, months had pass by and Nero comes upon finding Dante again, but his reasons for coming don't stem from just curiosity, but a desire.
It had been a while since they had last spoken, had last met; their previous goodbye ending from a battle to save the world once again from the hordes of demons and imbeciles that claim to be gods. Even though it was just a gift, Dante had given Yamato to Nero, the one and only beloved weapon of his brother Vergil. He had given it away, but for a much deeper reason, a reason he would reveal in time. Despite this reason however, it was like it he was giving his sword back to his brother Vergil. It was like Dante had a brother once again, a chance to set things differently than what had happened over 20 years ago. For Nero, the sword constantly reminded him of that man, a man named Dante,

5 million were French, and one was called Francis Bonnefoy, and these four soldiers were the greatest men I had ever meet and I had the greatest honour to serve with them.
4.683 million British citizens enlisted into the war and I was one of them, Arthur Kirkland. I had never heard of the troubled nightmares of which others had lived. But now I've made my own nightmares that plague my mind when ever my eyes are closed.
I served for king and country, but it broke me in the process.
This was the war that broke us.

"Arthur! Get over here boy!" The blond turned towards his commanding General. His new uniform ironed to perfection and boots so clean you'd think the light was coming from the black leather itself, his blond hair falling in front of his face, covering his bright emerald eyes. Everybody knew the war was only days away, tempers between the governments were at breaking point. Others had been through this before the men were tense around him, but in a way Arthur didn't understand, the upset only made them calmer. Arthur made his way to the General; the man was easily in his forties his hair starting to turn grey.
"Arthur Kirkland, sir" Arthur stood before him, giving a salute.
"Good lad, now, the British fleet has been mobilized and we need to evacuate London. You and John will be heading for the East-Children's-Home and getting them ready, trucks will be there for them within 2 hours" the General was talking so fast Arthur was having trou

Just the Beginning
By the time Dante had made it out of town, the sun was beginning to lower in the sky, but there was still some clear daylight. It wasn’t long until he came upon the abandoned warehouse. It looked like it hadn’t been touched for years. It was all boarded up and didn’t seem to show any signs of an entry.
“Heh, no entrance huh?”
He casually walked up to what appeared to be a boarded up doorway as he pulled out his Rebellion and slashed a big X into the hardwood that covered the door. Seconds later the wood caved in, allowing access to the inside. He strolled inside with his sword resting on his shoulder, ready to use just in case an unexpected attack occurs. He gazed around as there were cobwebs everywhere, silence surrounding him, the stench of stale air and the only light beaming was from the entrance. However, the silence gave him a lead to where the real entrance to the lab could be found. With each step he took it

and lived in a world overflowing with pain
she cut red lines across her wrists
drew crippled hearts across her walls
smeared blood across her face
because she thought it looked better than any makeup

every insult and slander thrown her way

won't be long for sun to intervene.
Her face as wet as morning dew,
she's so beautiful yet never knew.
Pity and regret make haven in her mind,
from a past that she can't just toss back behind.
Even the songbirds couldn't spare her a whistle,
and every rose she picked up seems to bear a thistle
She now sits in the yard
and tries very hard,
to keep it together
in chilled fall weather.
Sometimes things empower her, and the darkness screams,
wanting to snatch her soul from her and devoid her of dreams.
Yet, realizing in time light shall break out
she faces her fears and erases her doubt.
Knowing Heaven will put her heart back in its place,
she basks in the sunlight that falls on her face.
To Heaven she thankfully gave a bow,
it's not what she did then, but what she does now.
And what better truth is there by far,
than to know that you can come as you are!
She's been weak for so long, now she's ready for strength,
she will walk her path regardless of length.

Drowned is sorrow, your own saddness.
Taste the fire, take the maddness.
Feel the shadow breathe it's death.
Draw the life in painful breaths.
Kill your pain, kill your roots.
Drink your shame, death your food.
Live in darkness, die in pain.
Life resists not fear nor shame.
Death is quiet, in peace you rot.
Give me hate, love me not.

Because your fire was extinguished
And you passed away in the night
Living alone makes my blackened soul scream
Seconds become decades and I in agony I writhe
Are you happy now youve abandoned me?
How do you expect me to remain alive?
Poison darling, couldnt you have fought it out?
My nightmares see you hanging there
So lifeless, cold, unnecessary
Asking me to stay here was too unfair
Heaven turned out her lights so she could welcome you in
Roll out the red carpet at the pearly gates
But dont go in just yet
Im coming to join you so just wait
And guess what, Ive got someone for you to meet
Inside me is your, no, our child
We shall raise it together in heaven
I thought of that as I died and then I smiled
That fateful day that I met you at the park
Was the best and worst of my life
It brought me such joy
But was the reason I killed myself with a knife

Apart from all the lies of youth.

I stomp on it without a sound.

For the past several years, the dragons presence was wearing her down. She didnt have the courage to find Dante and the Nightmares because Harbinger pretty much threatened them. She held onto her self-made promise to protect Dante and that was what she was doing. Ari figured out that some of Vergil had corrupted the dragon and now he controlled her at times. She ran a hand through her hair and thought about her body. Harbingers takeover had altered her body to include horns and wings and her eye color changed. One eye was green and the other blue. She remembered Kurai Mayakashi having green eyes and Kumori Hokousha having blue eyes. She figured her eyes changed to reflect the Nightmares while the rest reflected the dragon. Ari was able to hide the horns and wings and move about with ease. Whenever she met with a particularly strong demon she coulDante: Corrupted Soul8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

A true Guardian angel, is a fallen one. She is the only one who understands what it's like to be beaten down
to the lowest point, cast out from her home, turned back on her only light... That is a true guardian angel.
She will not turn on you, but she will help you through what she knows best, hoping she will be salvaged herself.
Fallen angels roam the Earth, looking for their way back to light. They usually watch over the dead, and if you're
lucky, you will see one, and if you're really lucky, you have one protecting you. Not all angels are meant to
stay in heaven, so they are abandoned, beat, and lost... A fallen angel cares for humans, where high angels care
only for themselves, and their light they are surrounded in. So, when you see a fallen angel, instead of kicking
kicking her down, pick her up and help her... you never know, maybe she will become your guardian angel...

Suddenly and achingly calm, she breathes and her throat clams.
It dries up like the ocean in a rut, and she is a crumpled heap on the floor,
heartstrings half-splayed-half-clutched in coiled fingers,
no legs, no legs and struggling to stay afloat.
She splutters and coughs up fluid and grease, tar and gunmetal grey. She coughs up memories half-forgotten on purpose, tormented souls of the damned, and the realisation that
