It's meant to feel like fireworks exploding in your heart.
How come I can't feel my fireworks?
I can hear explosions coming from within your chest.
I can almost see the colours streaming from your soul.
Red, orange, purple, gold.
They are all there,
Waiting to be answered.
But I can't answer fireworks with fireworks,
when my heart is empty.
You don't deserve this.
You deserve someone who has all the fireworks in the world.
Someone whose heart would have an impressive fireworks display for you.
I could try,
I could try to light some fireworks and see if they will fly.
But what if it doesn't light?
What if it flies up a little bit and comes crashing down?
What if it lands on your heart and crushes you?
I don't want to hurt you.
Does anyone know a good fireworks shop?

"I knew it! You are a vampire!" Hanna yelled accusingly at their captor while struggling with the ropes around him. He didn't pay much attention to what their assailant replied, or to what the Professor said either as he was too busy trying to wiggle out of his ropes. Yet it was to no avail--his ropes were tied too well and it was beyond his abilities to remove them without help.
As their assailant left, Hanna let out a squeal, "We're going to get eaten!!"
"I can't tell if you're excited or panicked, Hanna." The orange-eyed professor replied.
"It's both!" Hanna answered, "It's so cool seeing a vampire up close, but I don't want to get eaten!!"
The undead Professor gave a small smile, "Well, either way, calm down. Fortunately for us, whoever tied my ropes was not good. Here, solve this puzzle while I get us out of these tangles."
Hanna was instantly distracted, "Ooh, puzzle!!"
It took Hanna two tries at the puzzle before he gave up a

It was raining-pouring, really. The skies were cascading water upon the land below, upon hundreds and hundreds of graves. The graveyard was completely abandoned as the rain relentlessly beat upon the ground, seemingly cleansing the sins of the dead buried beneath.
Yet one umbrella was forced to endure this as its owner held it above his head. From afar, its owner looked normal enough, likely holding a source of light near to his face. He was simply standing there, looking at the grave in front of him; a grave that the found to be oddly well kept, because as far as he knew, no one had ever visited it.
The headstone itself was a simply one-the only thing indicating that there was someone buried there was "R.I.P;" Rest In Peace. There was no name, no death date-nothing. The man still remained, however, staring fixedly at the grave. He was trying to remember; remember what though, he didn't know.
He remained there for some time, not paying attention to time or surrounding unti

Sometimes I feel as if I am not Me, because I am Me by chance.
If I had been born a second earlier, would I have not been Me?
Would I have been a girlish girl? An even boyish girl?
I wish I could answer that question.
Who are We?
How did We get here? Did We actually evolve from monkeys and apes?
But how did They get here? Did They evolve too?
But how did the animals They evolved from get here?
Evolution is a curious matter.
How am I Me?
How does the heart work? What makes it beat?
Are My blood cells alive?
Do they actually fight battles inside of Me?
I know I will know someday.
Sometimes I feel as if Life is a movie.
That I'm in the audience watching It.
It's horror, adventure and romance in one.
But in the end, I know what will happen.
There's times when I feel Life's repeating itself.
Like all this has happened before.
Maybe, someday, it'll happen with death.
That I'll see it coming before it does.
There's Life, there's Death,

Blackened StarThere was a girl I once knew, her name now long forgotten in the sea of people in this world, in the myriad of problems and no solutions. I watched her grow up. I hope I can watch her grow older. I remember the sunny spring days of pre-school in which she ran across those stones, skipping and laughing. Playing, frolicking. Where it didn't matter what she did, because her fellow friends didn't know any better. Didn't know what was cool and what wasn't. Didn't know who to associate and who not to. Where ignorance was truly bliss.Blackened Star3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
In the old days, when it was just her and the rest of the world, she would be that proud little girl. The star of the world. The center of the universe. Standing on the coffee table, singing the old tunes of forgotten shows.

The world revolved around the sun, not her. What was once a shining star in the sky, was now just a flaming candle in the night. The same, no different, no more special. Try as I did to tell her that she coul

Harry just shook his head and just stared at Hermione wishing what he was seeing was not true.

A week after Hermione became a neko she was finally able to head back out into the school. Thanks to some spells on her clothes so her tail would be comfortable, and some more on her ears so no one would notice them unless they knew they were there. She would still be spending the night in the hospital wing for the rest of the week though.

They quickly sat down by her, "Great to see you here Hermione. When did you get out of the hospital?" asked Ron as he filled up his plate with food.
