Schwache - RoyEdIt is a well-known fact that when a person displays unnatural behavior, they often do so with extremity. Those who are rarely angry become a force to be reckoned with when they lose their temper, those who are rarely weak break down completely and become increasingly dependent when weakness overcomes them.Schwache - RoyEd8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
And Edward Elric wasn't weak.
Perhaps it was because of this that, while Alphonse clung to life in the hospital, Edward needed Roy Mustang.
Edward didn't like admitting it, but tears were more than capable of welling up in his usually determined eyes. Carelessly, he ran his metal hand across them, and swore as he brought the flesh one up to wipe away his tears correctly.
His golden eyes lifted, taking in the sight of Mustang holding a white handkerchief out to him. His face was impassive, but Edward knew that it was only because the situation was awkward enough without the Colonel having to act sympathetic. He begrudgingly accepted the cloth, but
Custom-Making and general FAQThis is an FAQ list for those interested in custom-making, or somewhat curious about me and how I do things. It was originally posted under the journal submission "The Warmare Answers" but since that's now buried in the journal archives, I'm submitting it as a text deviation to make it easier to find.

Chinese Zodiac - GoatChinese Zodiac - Goat (1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015)Chinese Zodiac - Goat6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Occupying the 8th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Goat (or Sheep) symbolizes such character traits as creativity, intelligence, dependability, and calmness. Comfortable being alone to ponder the workings of their inner minds, Goats enjoy being part of a group, but prefer the sidelines rather than the center. Their nurturing personality makes Goats excellent care-givers. They're quite and reserved because they spend much time absorbed in their thoughts.
Home and alone is where Goats feel most comfortable. There they can express themselves artistically, whether it's by painting, cooking or participating in whatever artistic endeavors they enjoy. Goats prefer the couch because there they can relax and explore their minds. They don't need elaborate furnishings; only items reflecting their desire for art.
When traveling or seeking entertainment, Goats prefer groups or venues that hold many people. G

I think I love you, Axel. That's all I have to say. Just a few short words. So why is it so hard? I should be able to just tell him.
"What's up? You look like you have something to tell me." I do, Axel. I really do.
"It's nothing. Don't worry. It's really nothing important." Just that I can't stand to be without you.
Axel just sat there, staring at me with his eyebrows raised. He wanted to know what I was thinking. I really want to tell him, and I can form the words on the tip of my tongue, but as soon as I try to speak, I lose whatever I was about to say, and look like a complete idiot.
"Axel, I-" Someone was coming. I could hear footsteps making their way up to where Axel and I sat, on the edge of the clock tower. I could finally tell him, and someone had to ruin it.
"Hi Roxas!" Olette came around the corner, a sea-salt ice cream in her hand. "I didn't know you came here! Who's this?"

"I'm quite well, thank you." Fluttershy smiled and felt comforted just like the night they spent together under the starry skies. "And yourself?"
"I'm pretty good. I'm glad you came over," Big Mac said. Fluttershy blushed excitingly. "I was starting to feel kind of lonely here, even with Applejack."
Fluttershy had felt nervous beyond belief just less than a minute ago, but her words were so fluent, even she believed them. "Well, it's a beautiful night, and Twilight has a lovely observatory upstairs. I was thinking maybe if you wanted to we could go look at the stars together?" Did did I just come up with that?
Big Mac tried to hide a grin, but was unsuccessful. "That sounds mighty fine with me."
The two ponies walked upward, away from Pinkie Pie's enthusiastic yelling, Rarity's rambling, and the ruckus caused by the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Soon they reached the observatory. Walls of book

Axel thinks for a minute how it could have gone, once, if he'd known what the problem was:
"You've got yourself so wrapped up in this, giving yourself your layers, that you're you've forgotten how to peel them back. And I mean it, Rox. I want to know what you're like, not just today, but every day. I want you to let me in."
"But that's how things hurt." Roxas says, hollowly.
"But without letting people in, everything hurts. It's like plunging your hand into a lucky dip full of broken glass, and not even fishing out the prize. But you know what the prize is? The prize for giving in to the idea that you'll hurt? Something golden, and beautiful, and rare. Someone like you."
Roxas shakes his head, unwilling to hear it; more lies, more words to store up to hurt himself with when Axel is gone.
"You're golden, Rox. Fuck anyone who says you're not."

It was weird, having Axel's friends hang around with him, Roxas found. They were everywhere there wasn't anywhere Zexion didn't work, apparently, and Demyx was sort of omnipresent and as much as it felt like being continuously watched by a pair of sex-obsessed stalkers, it was nice. It was better than having to walk around alone. He wonders if this is sort of what it feels like to have friends, albeit friends who mostly make faces at you, and who you find having sex in the most unlikely of places. He walks in on them when they've asked him to meet them in the coffee shop, and it's a bit of an education. For a start, he won't be ordering anything with syrup in it for a long time. But more than that, it's the way they grin at him and carry on, noises growing louder and more theatrical until he flips the sign to closed and walks out again, not coming back until Demyx

He doesn't check his phone for days, burying it under the mountain of essays due, but he flinches every time it buzzes. It's never more than once, though, always a text, not a call, even though he tenses every time, waiting for that longer indication that someone's bothering with him, that someone cares. It doesn't come, and he tells himself he's not disappointed, that he's not waiting for Axel to call. When the phone eventually does ring, it's Naminé, bright and cheerful, Kairi adding her two cent's worth from the kitchen, and he can hear the smile in her voice. He tries to join it, but the words won't come, and she ends up hanging up on him, all cheer drained from her voice. He wonders if he's not ruining things for other people, rather than just himself.

And that was barely an hour ago. She could come back at any moment!TNBC-Mistletoe4 years ago in Humor More Like This
Then again, Sally was never gone very long when she left the house, despite that Jack insisted she had all the freedom in the world to do as she wanted, and go in and out as she pleased. Of course, she always told him where she was going, which she figured was fair enough, so that he would know where she was and when to expect her back. She had stated she wasn't sure how long she would be gone, but within an hour or two.
What Jack was doing, was positively silly to anyone who would catch it. He couldn't even believe he was doing this! What started as a wishful, though joking thought, became...this.

His head felt so light and his heart was beating so hard, he felt ecstatic and as if he was walking on air. Things that night had gone by in such a blur.

There's nothing going through Roxas' head as he trudges home in the rain. He's not deliberately going slow, but he's wincing a little with movement, and he's angry enough that he can pass the pain off as Axel's fault, tell himself that wasn't him up there in that little room, cluttered with the lives of two people, entwined like they're close. He can tell himself that it has nothing to do with jealousy, the idea that other people can cope with living in such close quarters, can be friends, even. The idea that Axel has friends, people who he'll laugh about this with, people he can tell. Roxas has no one; it's not like he can call Naminé up and go 'hey, I just got fucked and I'm feeling lonely, want to hash out all our feelings?', because that would be weird and awful, and she'd just sound upset, tired, and disappointed. Although whether she'd be disappointed that he had waited this long to

This isn't something Roxas has ever thought about, because when he thinks about sex, he's fairly old-fashioned, and grateful to be getting any at all. No one ever, though, when they have bathroom sex in the movies, seems to factor in the noise of other revellers throwing up, people trying to peer in and watch, people sniggering, the smell of stale urine from those with no aim, and just how unclean the places are. Probably because bathroom sex scenes are shot on film sets, not in filthy student nightclubs halfway through a busy evening. And yes, Riku's drunk and so isn't aware that sharing is caring, and that never seems to happen in the movies, either it's all been a little fast and painful, not enough lube, not enough prep, and right now Roxas just wants it to be over and done with, so he can go back to having a drink without, hopefully, having to face any consequences for his actions.
