The letter Leonardo Da Vinci received was clear and simple, yet disturbing all the same. In fact, he had to read it over several times before actually believing it. The words on the parchment were enough to shake him out of his normally poised demeanor and his stomach twisted into a tight, uncomfortable knot.
It had been a quiet, calm day today. He had spent his time painting and perfecting the flying machine, then had his evening meal in peace. Yet it as he was updating some of his medical journals under the candlelight, the messenger had arrived, rudely coming into his workshop without permission.
Angered with this, he had immediately prepared to send the man away. Yet the messenger had refused to leave and pressed a letter into his hand, urging him to read it. Still annoyed with the intrusion, the inventor had refused to do so, until the man pointed out its writer: Signora Auditore.
When hearing the message was from the newly widowed nobl

The village of Konoha slept soundly beneath the watchful gazes of the past Hokage's, proudly resting in the rockface. The wind whipped through the night air, whistling through the deserted streets and thrashing through the forest, upsetting the leaves upon their branches.
This type of weather made him nervous and unsettled. He'd been awake for hours, unable to ignore the sounds of the brewing storm. The sheets were tangled and twisted around his frame from where he had tossed and turned in an attempt to get comfortable. It wasn't happening. With a weary smile, the young man left his warm bed and slowly climbed the many steps up to the mountain top. He was almost completely hidden in the veil of darkness, as with sleepy blue eyes he joined his predecessors in gazing over the village. It was his favourite place to visit, especially when h

He was always there, be it taunting or calling him names. Even through his heated words Harry's heart burned for Malfoy. He always felt Draco Malfoy's eyes on him. At first Harry, too, seethed with anger. The boy always following him, making him mess up, and whatnot. But soon, Harry reveled in it. Harry never realized the pleasure in teasing Malfoy back. To see the blonde's face turn dark and his lips curl in disgust. When he growled, Harry loved it even more. They hated each other. With a passion.
It started with a simple passing in the hallway after class one day. Harry could see Malfoy's bright hair bobbing up and down from the other direction within the suffocating crowd of students. Harry frantically looked around searching for his two closest friends. But they were nowhere near. He sighed in worry. They were probably

Naruto looked petrified.
After a moment of silent shock, Naruto shouted to Sasuke an order.
Sasuke! Go find Kiba and bring him back here now! Naruto voice quivered in fright, he wont make it through his blizzard!
Not my problem. Just let him be, Sasuke answered, his lowered head not moving an inch.
Sasuke-! Naruto started but before he was able to go on any further, Sasuke was wrenched up and got a punch straight to his pale cheek with such force that sent him back to the ground. Sasukes surprised look froze on his face as he looked up to see the person who owned that fist that collided with his jaw.
It was the least expected out of all, Aburame Shino. The one who barely speaks and let alone, move, except creating hand movements to form his insect jutsu.

They had been together for almost two years; no one believed they would be together that long. Were talking two years people; no one could have believed Sasuke to be together with a person that long, except himself that is. They had gone out for a couple of dates, but most of which Naruto had begged Sasuke to take them out. But even Sasuke could do something for the person he loved; one evening when Naruto got home, did I forget to tell you they are living together? Sorry about that, well on with the story; Sasuke had cleaned up (you know Naruto lack in that department) and was making dinner. It was plain and simple a very cute gesture, and we all know Sasuke dont do cute at least not to anyone else but Naruto.

The Sea's LamentI sit at the hearth, in some rat filled tavern. I drown my sorrows in the vinegar that the man behind the bar dares to call wine. I am numb to the world. The tides sings in my veins but I ignore it. Another night passes and I have not moved from my seat. People in the room stare furtively through the hearth smoke, and whisper that I am not of this world. The barman keeps them from me for the moment, for he is well paid in forgotten coins. My reverie is interrupted by a sailor, the wine heavy on his breath. He suggests obscenity and I ignore him. He reaches for my arm and I flee the tavern, his face a picture of shock at my dissolution. I seek a place of deeper solitude, far from all sailors.The Sea's Lament7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Do you want to live?"
Her breath caught slightly as she pushed to answer,
"yes,"she said in a raspy whisper.

The cold liquid flowed freely down her throat,she gaged slightly on its metallic taste but she dared not stop.

Elizabeth MoonHer name was Elizabeth Moon. Ever since she was a little girl, she seemed different from most children. Her long dark hair cascaded over her slim shoulders like any other girls. She was skinny and tall but not too tall. At first glance she would appear as any other girl…until you looked into her eyes; her ice blue piercing eyes. Those weren’t the eyes of a normal girl. Those were the eyes of someone who had seen too much; someone who had seen pain, suffering, despair and death. Elizabeth however had never seen death or suffering, aside from her own.Elizabeth Moon7 years ago in Horror More Like This
She behaved like any normal girl, except that she never smiled. All the other children shied away from her. Witch Girl they called her. Elizabeth didn’t know what to make of this, for she saw no evidence of a witch in the mirror. But something about her made people uneasy, and even fearful.

A tall man, hooded and dressed mostly in white pulled himself slowly out of the canal. He favored one arm, his right, as he struggled to get up and out of the dirtied water.
On closer inspection, a dark red stain and a small round hole in his clothing suggested he'd been hit by an arrow. He'd obviously removed it, but the damage had been done.
His breathing ragged, he dragged himself out of the open, and into the shadows in a narrow alley.
He sat still, trying not to bring any more attention to himself, and inspected his wound.
It was then that he heard the sounds of heavy boots hitting the ground, and shouts from what had to be the gaurds he thought he'd gotten away from.
He silently moved farther back into the shadows, and then found a door. Bracing himself against the wall behind him, he managed to stand, and opened the door. Keeping as quiet as possible, he shut the door behind him, but then collapsed on the other side. His shoulder was slowly becoming more painful, and he suspecte

The worlds are always in danger.
And no matter how hard it is,
He's always the only one who can save it.
O is for omniscient.
He always seems to know
Exactly when we're in trouble,
No matter where we are.
C is for caring.
He will put us all
Above his own life
Time and time again.

He has flown around the world
A thousand times
And only a few lucky ones have seen him.

A thousand beings have found
A thousand ways to stop him
And he's defeated them all.

You are my precious flower,
Your hair as the petals of a blossom rose,
Smooth by each touch of a strain,
Your gown as the color of ivy,
Surrounding your fine skin,
Your body as of a lovely stem,
Slender with curves,
Fragile by these rough hands of mine.
Your voice is the calling of the forest,
Attracting whom you wish to desire,
Your spirit is the Earth's internal growth,
Alive and free from no boundaries,
Your scent is the essence of sweet and spice,
Arousing my inner sensations,
Pleasing to my inner soul.
I yearn for you,
My precious flower,
That shall forever be within these hands of mine.

Clara looks to him hopefully, twisting the words across her tongue carefully, "C- can we maybe. . . just maybe, go visit my mother."
The Doctor looks up to her questioningly, "Of course we can. Where does she live?"
She blinks a couple of times, and begins to fiddle with her fingers "No- I mean, not like that. . . exactly. She's. . . she kind of-" she swallows hard, "She's dead."
The Doctor looks up from his button pressing, with a glimmer of sentiment, leaving the TARDIS quiet for a short period of time. He then looks down and quickly crushes her high intentions, "No. No. Absolutely not. I've done the deceased parent thing once and it lead to a paradox and big, bad, evil things attacking a cathedra-"

It had been a few weeks since the incident with the Cybermen and Porridge's proposal. The Doctor had stopped by since then, but Clara declined to travel with him. She needed a little time to herself she had said. The Doctor didn't like her answer and had even tried to woo her back to the TARDIS with tales of adventure and wonder. Clara, however, just as stubborn the Doctor, remained immovable.
The Doctor was board. All of time and space, sure, but to explore it on his own never turned out right. That and he really didn't like to be alone. So he skipped ahead a week at time and stopped in to see Clara. Each time, she replied that she needed just a little more time. Finally on his fifth attempt, he decided that begging and bothering wasn't the answer--he needed to talk to her, find out the why. He had sort of skipped over that. He was good at that, but in his head he supposed it was because he was afraid of getting too close to his companions. Because when he got too close
