Over the next week, I had trained like never before. Learning new attacks, preparing new strategies, becoming more powerful, we would not rest until we were sure to win. Soon, we began making our way over to the next town where Akuji claimed he would be. We arrived there fairly quickly and searched the entire town for the trainer but he could not be found anywhere.
Catey and I stood at the outer ridge of the town, staring out into the next route. "Do you think he left already?" Catey wondered with disappointment. "Daddy won't let me go further than this town, so if he is gone, we won't get our rematch with him "
Then, as if from nowhere, a hand slammed the tree right next to Catey's head, startling us both, and Akuji came out from hiding. "Keke, so, you're just going to be a daddy's-little-girl and let me get away just because he told you
Discovering Who I amI have been doing a lot of thinking this past week about a number of things but mainly about who I am. I am a rock chick, a country girl, someone who will listen, someone you can have crazy fun with because you know everyone is crazy even if they do not admit it. I am a 24 year old white girl, who is 5' 3" an average build. I have blue eyes, wear contacts, my hair is dirty blond. I like anime/manga, I like to sing, read, write and draw. I am all this and more. To most who know me I am a girl and I like guys. That is not a lie but that is not the whole truth either. I am a girl who likes guys but I am also a girl who likes girls. Saying I am straight is not correct although that is what I commonly refer to myself as. Yet saying I am lesbian is not entirely true either. It took awhile for me to understand but I like both guys and girls.Discovering Who I am7 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

Alright, so here I am, falling like a fucking meteor out of the god damn sky, and I'm thinking, what the hell? I mean really. Isn't there supposed to be some beautiful angel with piercing blue eyes and silky white hair appearing out of nowhere to catch me before I hit the ground? That is what happens in every story ever made about a fallen angel right? Maybe I'm mistaken maybe I just pissed too many angels off in too short of a time. It's possible. I'm a bit of a fuckup.
I should probably introduce myself before I thoroughly confuse you all with my ramblings. My name is Aidan. I'm an angel, or maybe I should say I was an angel. Up until about thirty seconds ago when I was tossed, none to gently I might add, o

Sunlight danced through the window, laying silently against Cloud's face as he slept. He twitched slightly, his nose wrinkling up as he gave a lop-sided pout. Gradually he stirred from his sleeping realm, moaning quietly as he shifted onto his stomache, vaguely aware of a weight not of the blanket draped lazilly over his hips, namely Zack's arm.
Beside him, Zack chuckled. It was well into the afternoon and he had spent almost an hour watching his little Cloud sleep. Seeing him waking up was a surprising treat. Zack could now conclude that there was abosolutely no time whatsoever when Cloud wasn't adorable, no time whatsoever taht Zack didn't want to snuggle him to death and squee like a fangirl. Sometimes it was very hard to resist that urge... Like now, for instance.
He grinned almost like a man about to go insane when Cloud shifted once again, his eyebrows furrowing as if he were deep in thought. The blonde Recruit's face then relaxed as he sighed and Zack pulled him closer and tight

"Are you scared?" the man beside him taunted.
"No!" Guy rebutted, but all the same he reached for his Killing Edge.
Guy's jaw hung open. His sword was gone. Not just the sword, but the scabbard, too. Matthew still stood three yards away, well out of reach--there was no way he could have taken it. Guy glanced to the thief, to confirm that his scabbard wasn't protruding from the folds of the thief's cloak. He paused when his eyes fell upon Matthew's hips. It didn't look as though Matthew had his daggers, either.
"Can't get enough of me, can you?" the thief teased.
Guy's eyes widened, and he turned about in haste to hide the scarlet of his face. Standing there

A smile spread across Zack's face as he looked over his shoulder at the blonde currently rubbing one of his eyes, who had just walked in through the kitchen door. With a yawn, he muttered, "morning..."
"Morning Spikey. Pancakes?"
Cloud was suddenly wide awake. "NO! I mean..." He shyly glanced to the side. "Not that it's bad or anything but..." Zack stuck out his lower lip and gave him the saddest looking eyes he could possibly muster. "I-It's good... FINE. Just don't look at me like that!"
Zack grinned and nearly tackled Cloud, who squeaked in surprise. "Don't worry, Angeal kinda... re-taught me."
"GOOD." Cloud huffed and crossed his arms, turning away from Zack.
"Wha'?" Cloud looked at him with a brow raised. "Hey, I was the one who picked the lock on your door AND stole your television, I should be apologizing, so I'm-"
"Hey, it's fine. I know it was only 'cause you missed me," Zack stuck out his tongue and ruffled Cloud's hair.

He fiddled with his fingers a bit, trying to wear off the numb feeling that was slowly overcoming his hand.
He stopped and looked up at the dark night sky and sighed deeply.
'I can't believe it...Out on a mission during this weather. I would be eating dinner and heading for bed by now...But, Instead I have to head out in the cold, winter snow and walk 5 miles into the woods and meet Lavi because he said it was important!!'

Twilight helped herself to some punch as she watched Applejack attempt in vein to Pin the Tail on the Pony. "A little to the left!" she thought with all her might, but try as she might, the pin still ended up three inches away from the picture's flank.

It was three months later.
The day was warm and sunny and Rarity lounged in her Boutique. She was bored; there looked to be no business today and she wondered if she shouldn't close up early. A slow day like this really made you miss the past: sometimes it seemed as though something strange or exciting happened every other day. Now things were so humdrum she was practically dozing. It wasn't as though she was complaining, goodness no, but over the last couple of weeks it just seemed as though something were missing. Some element that she couldn't put her hoof on, a certain je ne sais quoi. Maybe it was just the cozy sunlight making her mind drift.
News had come that Summersday had finally found himself a wife-to-be. Given the events of my visit, I can only hope he played it fair instead of pick-and-choose, she thought to herself. Over the quarter-year her hatred of him had diminished, but he still held a dark place in her mind; one that may never be clea

In the royal city of Canterlot, the two ruling Princesses were finishing up their examination of a young dragon that had very recently gone through a life threatening ordeal. Spike, sat on the edge of the bed in one of Canterlot Castle's many guest rooms, a white and violet aura surrounded his little body as the two Princesses gave him one last checkup. Organs, muscles, bones, metabolic rate, everything was checked thoroughly until both were satisfied with the results. "Well Spike, everything looks fine. There's no residual trace of the curse in you." Princess Luna told the young dragon.
"Does this mean it's finally over?" Spike asked, hopefully.

Really, he shouldn't have been surprised. When it came to Hanna, that was just how things went. One could say the young man was about as predictable as a hurricane, but that wouldn't have been giving hurricanes enough credit. He'd always think he had some vague pattern laid down when it came to the young man, only to have it all scattered within minutes by whatever the redhead did next. He supposed perhaps this was a sign that he should just go with the flow, as was his nature, but somehow this didn't stop him from being thrown by the sudden flights of whimsy on occasion.
So when Hanna broke the comfortable silence (well, it was silent for Hanna. The music was still blaring as loud as it possibly could from his aged laptop and he kept unconsciously mumbling Queen lyrics along with said music, but that was not the point) of the apartment, he hadn't been sure of what to expect.

The door of the Peach Pit Tavern swung open, ringing the small bell that hung above the door. The tavern was not an overly large establishment. There was a sitting area for customers to enjoy a meal and a drink by themselves or with a friend. A small stage sat against the north wall where bands, comedians, or actors would perform. Against the far wall was a full bar with a line of stools in front. To the right of the bar was a hallway that led off to rooms that ponies could rent should they need a place to stay for the night. Behind the bar, waiting to attend to her customers was Peach Bellini. The mare's mane and tail were brown and the color of her coat was obviously her namesake. Her cutie mark looked like a tropical drink and she always seemed to ha

As arithmetic has always shown.
But it's this that's made me wholly see
A formula before unknown.
Thus I struggle sorely to impute
Any form of logic to this love.
I cannot manage to compute
What this racing heart's indicative of.
To my dismay, I cannot derive,
Any sense to this new affection.
But it's this very confusion that keeps me alive,
Though I desperately fear a certain rejection.
By parenthesis, we're set apart,
Such a hopeless equation I long to pursue.
But I hope someday to hold your heart,
And I vow with conviction I'll factor through.
Whole numbers are what I once desired,
In such a sum I yearned to be.
But integers are dull and tired
And this repeating decimal intrigues me.
All I required, I learned not in school,
The only whole number that matters is "2".
I don't care about timeworn theorems and rules-

Mrs. Lovett leaned on the large wooden sill before the window. Her weight rested on her elbows, and she stared blankly out the window. In her palm was clutched a daisy. It's silky white petals drooped from it's core. She altered her stare to the flower. Her dear Sweeney was out mindlessly wandering the streets for hours. Troubling himself with thoughts of the past. She didn't know if he would mind her being in his shop, but she hadn't cared all that much.
She gripped a soft petal between her fingers, and plucked it out, watching it flutter to the ground.

Mr. Todd was always drowned out in his sorrows, too wrapped up to realize the world around him. She felt great pity for the man. Always she reminded herself that before she went to sleep. And she'd even shed a few tears for him, and then more for herself.

It had been quite a while since Mr. Todd's barber shop was cleaned properly and, because her working day had been relatively quiet thus far, Mrs. Lovett went to the barber's room after both their shops were closed for the day to get rid of even the most aggressive splatters of blood.
As she entered Sweeney's room, she found it empty. It surprised her; usually the man was sitting in his barber chair, brooding, or he was standing next to the huge window, staring outside, or just pacing around the room. He probably couldn't stand being in the room any more, and it didn't surprise her. The place had once been beautiful and inviting, but now that such sad things had happened there and it had been totally neglected for almost fifteen years, it was just another depressing room in Fleet Street.
But still, it was where the barber was staying now and so the baker wanted it to be as nice as it could possibly be. Mr. Todd didn't share that thought, but she had persuaded him that

Behind the bed was a small bookcase overflowing with books and scrolls. At the foot of the bed was a trunk and beyond that against the wall was a wardrobe and large dressing mirror.
