Two star-crossed lovers meeting secretly,
Hands clasped under stormy skies.
If you wait for me eternally,
Love, I'll promise not to cry.
I have to ask you, darling,
Why do you love me so?
We'll last forever.
Darling, I'm no Romeo.
A cup closed in your hands?
Let me lift the poison from your lips,
We'll make our demands.
Don't you ever think I'll leave you,
Darling, where could I ever go?
Juliet, we'll last forever.
Darling, I'm no Romeo.
Here comes the east,
And with the sun,
The glove upon your cheek is fair.
I touch your hands in soft surrender.
I'd give my life to be there.
Juliet, you are so very pretty;
Juliet, don't look so sad.
Juliet, I'll give you poetry
Until you smile, love,
Juliet, I love you,
There is nowhere I could go.
Juliet, we'll last forever.
I'm no Romeo.

Fifty-seven octaves below middle C, hundreds of thousands of tiny stars with little worlds trailing atmospheres in elliptical orbits. Double-star systems, triple-star, more; planets, civilisations, dark matter, tangible matter, all circling, swarming, humming together in one enormous note, not bumping together but carrying a wave from the centre of their island universe, expanding out into space
Sound cannot exist in a vacuum. This is a widely known fact. And space is a vacuum, sure. But only when you look at it from here, from our tiny little world. Close your eyes, zoom out, and look at the celestial spheres from their view; and space isn't so thin after all. Close your eyes, zoom in, and even our dense atmosphere is just atoms in a vacuum of their own. Sound as we know it, sure, that doesn't exist outside our little stardust orb. It's too small, too fragil

Her heart was pounding. Why? There was nothing new here, nothing strange, nothing she hadnt done a thousand times before. She was sitting in her chair, surrounded by the layer of permajunk that was her floor, and the unbridled creativity that made up her walls, and the bleak sunlight that illuminated her world. And she was writing, which was nothing new, either.
Only this time, she was writing herself. Writing exactly what she was doingto the T, only not, because in the real world her typing was broken up by text messages and parental voices, and her own responses, and in this world, this tip-tap of letters and pixels, the patter of fingers on keys was unbroken.
The writer liked the world in the paper better. There, she was alone with her letters, with her words, and she loved it. She could swim in them, absor

Maybe that's the most important part of this storyshe wasn't pretty, and she was young. Alexandra Biblia Lewis was only twelve when it happened, although the story starts way before that.
She was a writer. That's important, too.
It was a dark and stormy night. The nights in the beginnings of Allie's stories were always dark and stormy. This wasn't terribly original, and she knew this. Allie felt mildly ashamed of this at times, because as the outcast of her small private school she felt obligated to be Different, but writing itself was Different enough.
And she was not pretty.
She wasn't fat, exactly, but she was lumpy in all the wrong places for a twelve-year-old. Her hair was mousy and brown, usually pulled back into lumpy pigtails on her head. Her nose looked like it was made with a dollop of gelatine in the tip. Glasses sat at

And if You do exist, well, I've read the Bible, and I'm not sure I'd believe in You anyway, any more than I believe in the Church or Republicans. So I hope that clears the air. Please don't let it effect what I'm about to say.

As the cool night turned into day, you rubbed your eyes and slowly began to drag yourself to your feet. You walked toward the bathroom and slowly started to make yourself look presentable. Once you had showered, and dressed you headed to the kitchen for some wonderful, life-giving coffee. You had the feeling today was going to be a long day.
You noticed that the lights in the kitchen were off, which was strange because usually Sanji was already up and preparing breakfast. You quickly grew suspicious as you slowly opened the door and took a few steps in. Suddenly, the lights clicked on, blinding you temporarily.
"SURPRISE!" Everyone yelled out.
"Wha-? What's going on?" You looked at everyone, they all had giant smiles on their faces. And in front of them, was a giant, three teared cake. And on the bottom tear, written in frosting, were the words, "Happy Birthday, (f/n)"

"She's not injured internally, no bruises, no cuts. So why is she not waking up?" Chopper asked, completely stumped. You began to wonder that yourself. What happened?
"She used such a powerful form, just like Cuba did. Only she was in more control over hers...could she be simply just exhausted from the feat?" Robin offered.
"Maybe, but how long until she wakes up?" Sanji whined,

Months passed since your and Zoro had spent "quality time" together. Since then, you and the crew have been on many adventures. What made it even more wonderful was that the day after your birthday, Luffy had asked you to be part of his crew. You, of course, naturally agreed.
And as promised, You and Brook began the music lessons. Both in guitar and in voice. Originally, when you began your first guitar lesson, you could hardly strike a chord without your fingers hurting. Your voice was quite and soft, but it had potential to become something more, if you were willing to put in the hard work.
And work hard you did! Brook was a wonderful teacher, but it was up to you to find confidence in yourself when you sang. Your beloved would often catch you singing some tune to yourself when you thought you were alone, and when Zoro would begin to clap, you immediately would become flustered and your voice would stray.
Eventually, you did master a song or two, now you just had to develop the multi

Ever since you ate the Ishi Ishi no mi fruit, or the Mind Mind fruit, a year ago, you've been able to read the thoughts of those around you. It’s been a useful ability and it’s gotten you out of many jams in the past.
For instance, when you ate the Devil Fruit, you found out that your boyfriend had been cheating on you with your best friend throughout the entire relationship; it earned you money by claiming you were psychic and reading the thoughts of unsuspecting patrons. It saved you when some thugs tried to attack you sev

"That's what 'her' generally implies, idiot cook." Zoro shot back.

However, your intrusion wasn't as undetected as you had thought. Zoro knew that someone had sneaked on board last night, but since there was no further activity from you, he decided to wait until they were far out to sea before he confronted you.

You found that you were capable of creating illusions, not only in the mind of your enemies, but out in the open as well. You could create multiple copies of yourself too. With this new information, you decided to train hard to make your abilities grow. You wanted to get as strong as possible for when you faced that Marine who had wronged you one year ago.
