My name is Urchin, and I can tell you that living under the sea isn't all that bad, at least not as bad as my best friend Ariel always made it out to be. Ariel had this idea that everything was better up on land; she imagined people spending their time dancing and having fun or just lying around in the sun, as if they didn't have any cares in the world. She said there we

Sebastian swam up on the beach a while later, bringing King Triton and his six daughters behind him. He had left under the impression Ariel was marrying the Prince, and had gone to tell her family the good news. Triton and his daughters had come to wish her congratulations, and to say good-bye. They swam up into the shallows, calling and waving to us. Ariel ran forward, splashing clumsily, and threw herself into her father's arms. Then she hugged each of her sisters in a row, kissing each of them. Her family was delighted to see her safe, and not in the clutches of the Sea Witch. But they were a little confused. They had expected to come and find Ariel married to the Prince, probably wearing a wedding dress and surrounded by well-wishers. But instead they had found just her and I, wearing wet dirty clothes, and Ariel's hair cut off the same as her sisters.
"My daughter," Triton said, holding her face, "I was afraid I would never see you again. I was afraid Ursula would claim y

The next morning I walked downstairs to find the entire palace in an uproar: people were hurrying in all directions, pushing trolleys of food and decorations and shouting orders at one another. I recognized a young servant that had helped me the other day. He was checking things off a list and issuing orders, and I walked up to him and asked him what was going on.
"Why, you haven't heard yet?" he said with a grin. "The Prince is getting married! He just announced it this morning! Getting married this very day, before the sun sets!"
I stared in surprise. "We're in a hurry to prepare the wedding," the servant went on. "It will be in a few hours, so if you'll excuse me I need to see how the cake is doing."
He hurried off after some other bustling people, and left me alone and bewildered. But then I smiled, because I knew Ariel had done it. She had won the Prince's love, and they were getting married this very day. Once they kissed at the wedding, she would be safe from the S

The next morning the Prince took Ariel on a tour of his kingdom, and I was left to loaf around the palace wondering how things were going. I found Sebastian in Ariel's room, and we sat around a while, not having much to talk about. I found the long note Ariel had written to me last night, laying on the desk, but I was still unable to read it. I stared at the squiggles and swirls and finally turned to Sebastian.
"Sebastian," I said. "Ariel wrote this to me last night, but I can't read it. Will you read it to me?"
He nodded and I plopped the paper down in front of him. He scuttled on top of it and read it aloud, hesitating at some parts, but I finally coaxed it all out of him. It said: "Urchin, what are you doing here? Did you come here just to find me? I'm so sorry about everything. I left my father and sisters without giving any explanation or even saying good-bye. I did the same to you. It was awful of me. I'm so sorry. Now you are here too and I have put you into dange

She smiled to herself. This was still her favorite part of the day. Slowly she rose up from his pillow and listened as Sho's loud and gentle footsteps rumbled up the stair to meet her in his bedroom doorway.
"Sho," was the first thing she said and blinked up at him sleepily.
"Hey beautiful," he chuckled and leaned against the frame to look at her, lost in his bed. "I see you had another busy day."

The camp was too closed off. There were too many trees around the entrance and the rocks that lead up to where Andromeda addressed her empire wasn’t anything like the small tree that Nedria would sit under to speak with her fellow gladiators. She had never felt comfortable addressing Ice Empire on a different level. She could never stand above them, even if she was a leader. It felt wrong for her, especially since she had never seen herself to be that powerful. She was there for her empire and was to serve her empire as a leader and consul, not as an all-powerful and omnipotent leader that could not be addressed one on one.
The sound of the wind whistling through the trees was off. It didn’t bring the smell of the fresh mountain air into the camp. Instead, there was a musk that followed it, green and warm and different. It wasn’t the same as the smell of snow, or ice, or even the mountains themselves. It wasn’t home.

He could see him, the one of whom he was only a Replica for, standing above his dissipating body. Trying to hide the pain he was experiencing, he wondered aloud, "What happens when a fake dies? One like me where will my heart go? Does it disappear?"
"It'll go somewhere," the real version of himself answered, obviously trying to comfort him. "Maybe to the same place as mine."

Redeeming DreamsThey say it is foolish to believe in fairy tales. They tell you that you must get your head out of the clouds and face the realities of life. That's how it was in my case.Redeeming Dreams4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As a kid, everyone knew me as a perpetual dreamer, and I received a lot of flak because of it, not only from my teachers and the other kids at school, but from my own family, too. My brothers and sisters teased and tormented me unmercifully, and my parents were forever telling me: "When will you learn to grow up?" Easy for them to say; they never understood how hard I sincerely tried to act adult, yet I couldn't see why I couldn't be a grown-up and retain my imagination at the same time.
Even to this day, I don't understand what harm there is in dreams and fantasies. After all, without them, this world would be an extremely drab, dreary place. What's wrong with the notion of unicorns, dragons, and mermaids, of princes, princesses, magical kisses, and happily ever afters? Beyond that, there have been many times when m

Protecting the things she cared for the most, was it? To the point she herself mattered not. He could relate, he knew, as the breeze made the sashes of his blindfold shift along with his hair. So he could protect his most important person... his very best friend... there was no other choice. This much he knew. And yet why was it that when she turned around, all he could find in his heart was doubt? Bitterness? Regret?
This girl he's only known for so long, donning both a number and the coat, with a face so much like hers - like theirs, and an unwavering smile, just like his - and words, brave, heartbreaking words - all her very own.

She closed her eyes, a small smile on her face. Roxas watched with tear filled eyes as her entire body seemed to turn to crystal. In one final flash of light, there was nothing left there, and Roxas was left holding onto air as he watched what was left of her float up towards the Twilight sky. His hands fell, landing with a light thump on the ground.
A tear slowly crawled down his cheek. "Xion " He said quietly, his voice straining with the emotions. Before him was a single lone sea shell, the last remandment of her being. Roxas picked it up with shaking fingers. Slowly he brought it to his chest, where his heart should have been.
Abruptly Roxas stood, a look of determination on his face. He pocketed the sea shell, put his hood up and walked through a portal of darkness. He knew what he was to do. In his mind, he held the picture of Xion smiling, reminding him of why he was going back.

Pairing/s: Platonic Replion; Feel free to see it as romance.
Fate was a cruel thing.
Everyone knew that, and it provided to a known fact that it was always hard to find someone that was, in some way or another, similar to you. And that law applied to everyone, especially to the one and only Riku Replica.
Although the real Riku counted, the replica would never consider to even compare his original with himself. He was a Replica. That was explanation enough. All he had now was a fake heart, filled with fake memories of himself.
Now he didn't know what he could call himself anymore.
So one day (or night, he didn't know if that even applied to this... horrible place that reeked of darkness), when he took one of his useless strolls in his never ending prison, he's met by a hooded figure, who also seemed to be wondering where this place was and how to get out.
When their eyes meet, they both can't help staring at each other in shock, but the Riku R

Writing came easier now, and though he'd had a few brushes with danger for spinning these tales, many were now going on as he had written them, and he had begun publishing children's books that were initially sold out of the used book store in town before the regular book store was willing to pick up sales.PT: Love for One Knight5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

It was quiet on the trip back to the road. Sho didn't speak much, probably letting me be alone with my thoughts. I wanted to speak, to not think, but the quiet was too thick to break. So I was left with my thoughts. My mind raced in circles, trying to figure out how to look at the day's events. On the one hand, the only thing I had really wished for over the last eight years had finally come true. Sho was alive and well and back in my life.

I wanted so much
For us to see
What could have been
But will never be.
My warmth once
Was kindled by you.
We came together,
And the fire grew.
But when your flame
Had flickered out
I lost the warmth
And so brought drought.
You gave me strength.
You gave me hope.
You've been torn away,
And I cannot cope.
Like Ignis himself
I have risen from the ash
With fury greater than
But now with a heart
no longer warm.
A cold hearted killer
In a fire storm.
So bring me your living,
I'll return them dead.
Touch my family,
and off with your head.
Your fire is still strong,
We will never be beat
I shall bare the cold.
Without your heat.
The unknown has called you
as the fading glow.
So into the unknown,
I too go.

The sweet girl forced a smile and glanced back at the window, "I know I'm sorry," she whispered, slowly standing from her window seat and walking back over to the large, white table. The entire room lacked of any color other then the beautiful pictures that hung on the walls each depicting different scenes. She sat down at the table and picked up some crayons, staring at the blank page with a concentrated look of determination.
