Sherlock and I were walking down a back alley in London. After a thrilling chase of a criminal - we caught him I waved for a taxi but Sherlock shook his head.
"The air seems to be nice out for a short ride home don't you think John? Why don't we walk?" He suggested. Why down dark deserted alleys, I'm unsure. One thing that I am sure of though, you can actually get a decent view of the stars from here. Maybe it's because it's so dark.
I shoved my hands into my pockets as a slight chill set in. As I was walking I couldn't help but keep gazing up at the sky. The night was clear and I could make out all sorts of familiar constellations.
There was a particular star I was mesmerised by; as I was walking I couldn't stop staring at it. It was the brightest star among the others; maybe it could be a satellite. No, it was too pretty to be a satellite. It defiantly had to be a star. Maybe there were little aliens on it waving down at me and I just couldn't see them because I thought that i

Loki's Little Mischief - a Loki x OC Romance
There is an untold tale in Norse mythology of the unknown romance of Loki the God of Mischief. It is a common misconception that Loki desired and married a nymph that Odin made a Goddess, named Sigyn, and that he later attempted to leave her, although she remained loyal to him until the end, and attempted to relieve his suffering from the poison of the snake the Goddess Skaði set over him before Ragnarök as he lay bound by their son Narfi's guts to three snaptun stones.
Only two pieces of this information are correct. That Loki loved a nymph, and that another nymph by the name of Sigyn was involved, although whether she is real or not is contested.
It was a love that belonged to myths and legends, and yet never made it to any o

Tony Stark had completed rebuilding his Tower and turning it into a headquarters for the gang (with Pepper's help of course). But more recently the group was finding it difficult to keep up with all of Earth's emergencies, as a result, Heimdall had informed Thor of his friends' troubles and he had returned to Earth in order to help them.
Thor had been hesitant to leave his home realm but his friends needed him. He was an Avenger after all. Midgard needed him. He stepped out onto the bifrost where Hiemdall kept the teseract for travel now. "Gatekeeper. Send me to Midgard. I am needed there. Thank you Heimdall." he nodded to the gatekeeper.
Clint had woken in a cold sweat just like every night since Natasha had set him free of the teseracts hold. He couldn't shake the nightmares. He w

She felt that the turmoil would swallow her whole and never let her go. So she reached to feel anything else but heartache and pain. That's when she found anger and bitterness. She let the rage fill her. Rogue let that fuel her heart to beat even when it was frozen.Rogue- Chp2 Runnin Again6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She took the first step to get ready. She changed into jeans, a dark green long sleaved shirt, and black gloves. She then put on her brown leather jacket. She got on her black boots and had to get out. She needed to leave for a little while. Needed to be alone.
She suddenly heard a knock at her door. "Rogue?" it was Logan. He sounded worried. She looked from the door to the window. There was a tree right outside of it. She might be able to make it. Rogue goes to the window and heard footsteps in her room. She turned as she opens the window letting in the

What really stopped him, though, what somehow managed to tear him to pieces and make him seem like the world had ended, was the sight of Alice, Jack's arms wrapped around her, and her looking for all the world like there was nowhere else she'd rather be.
Hatter bit his lip and closed his eyes. His hand dropped the duffel bag that he'd been carrying, half empty but carrying a change of clothes and what little of the paper that Alice's world called money he'd been able to get his hands on from the black market.
Hatter opened his eyes and jerked his head, trying to shake the image of Alice and Jack standing together out of his head. He turned on his feet, starting to stalk back towards the door, when a voice stopped him.
"Hatter!" Alice called, and he heard the soft pitter-patter of her feet as she traipsed tow

"Are you hurt Rogue?" Poitr asked her from behind her. She shook her head. He looked into her eyes and then looked to Pyro. "It's hard for you to see him like that. Isn't it? Because you used to be friends?"
Rogue nodded. "Yeah. He was ma friend." she said it softly looking back to him as her professors worked to keep him alive in that hideous orange jumpsuit. She just prayed that he kept breathing. She didn't want him to die.
Poitr then said, "We were worried about you. Jubilee almost got Storm to let her come with us even though her training isn't done yet. And Wolverine was totally freaking out." His huge muscular form was still in his metal form. But Rogue was used to seeing him like this. It's why she nicknamed him Mr. Shiny. He smiled down at her and said, "I'm glad you're okay."

So she took a deep breath and knocked lightly knowing his high seance of hearing would pick it up. She waited a beat and then the door opened to reveal Logan standing in his street clothes. She saw his eyes go nervous at the sight of her. She regretted telling him the way she felt about him. At least he could look at her before. Now... she sighed. "Hey Logan.

It's a strange word isn't it?
Four letters constructed into a word that could change one's life forever.
I remember the first time I experienced the word 'love', it was applied to a sentence containing two other words. Both of which connected me to another person directly through strong feelings and emotions by the means of a statement. A statement I will never forget.
"I love you."
To be honest I don't think it was what was said that startled me but who was saying it. It came from my best, and childhood, friend. His name is Axel, and he managed to turn my world upside down with three simple words strung into a statement. Probably the strongest statement someone could ever make.
"You what?" It was stupid that that was all I could think to say, but I was in shock, and I'm sure brain malfunction is something that's almost always paired with that.
"Oh god," was the answer I received to my question as Axel put his hands over his face, muffling his next words. "I shouldn't ha

He then kicked open the door and headed out into the cold morning air. He sniffed, the bakery was just opening. 'Are you hungry, little spider?'
When had she eaten last? three...no four days ago. Her stomach did not growl but it did feel hollow. She followed him grudgingly. "I don't want to have anything in common with you Cupid." she muttered under her breath as she buttoned her coat to her thighs. when she walked her legs would peek out of the flaps of her coat.
Clint watched her ask she walked and couldn't fathom how she wasn't cold. Her legs we so elegant and long, he noted. And he smiled when she called him Cupid, when it couldn't be further from the truth, he knew nothing of love.
'Of course we have something in common,' he said. 'We both haven't eaten in almost a week.'
He could tell from the hunger that burned in her eyes at the mention of food.

She looked down and smiled seeing her gloveless hand. It still made her smile that she was cured. That she could touch. For three months she had been able to touch without endangering anyone.

He pulled his pants back on and then looked at his jacket, it was cut in some very awkward places. Time to get a new one of those, he thought. He got off the bed and walked to the bathroom, his shirt wasn't going on, because there was no shirt to put on anymore.

Logan was about to say something when his brow furrowed and he sniffed the air. "Wow. You've really got a bad case of infection there bub." he told Pyro.

You mumbled curses in your native language under your breath. You really couldn’t believe what was happening. You really couldn’t believe you lost a bet to the bad touch trio – why you made one with them was beyond your memory – and what they were making you do as “punishment”. You were wearing a Josie and the Pussycats-style outfit: an orange and black striped leotard with matching tail, an orange, cat-ear headband and large paws. Black stripes were painted across your face like whiskers. Oh, but this wasn’t worst part of it.
You turned back to the trio, who were hiding behind large bushes. They all shot you good luck thumbs up and flashed stupid smirks before hiding again. You turned away again, your face completely red. You really couldn’t believe you were going to do this.
