He almost didn't believe what he had just heard. He creaked his head around to the unassuming officer at the entrance to the saloon.
"You're sure?" he asked from his perch at the bench beside the barkeep.
"Sure as can be, Sheriff," the officer rattled, his voice cracking with fear. "It's...it's him."
The Deputy at his side straightened the ten gallon hat on his metal head and doubled back.
"I'll be a Met's uncle," he groaned. "That devil's here? In our town?"
The Sheriff sighed and rose from his stool as one rises in a church. He grabbed his bright yellow hat and reflected for a moment, running his rusty red finger across the V-shaped b

All the robots in the Light household were a-snooze. Well... most of the household, anyways. Two certain mischief makers had decided to sneak out of bed at this late hour. Their mission.. to peek into every single one of their Christmas presents. At least.. as many as they possibly could before getting caught.
"Ready, Tor?" asked the first voice.
'Tor' nodded to his partner in crime. "Always."
The duo made their way down the stairs and into the living room area. The lights were all off, except for that of the Christmas tree, which had been left on because Auto had forgotten to unplug it before going to bed. "So which one are you going for first, Cut?"
Cut grinned wickedly. Need his partner ask? "Does it really matter? We're going for every single one here. And everyone's dead asleep. What are the odds of som

It had taken a lot of preperations, and ranting, and chasing away other robots. Especially Crash Man; if he didn't chase away Crash Man, chances were that the other would destroy what he had been carefully planning for weeks. That would have probably resulted in him getting into a fight with the Second Gen robot, which would not have ended well. But Crash Man was out of the picture, and he had accomplished his goal. That was all that mattered.
Copy grinned, staring at the steel armor in front of him. He could use his Copy Ability to change his jumpsuit into a color that was appropriate - the tricky part had been obtaining the armor. He'd had to create it himself, using memories that were not his own, but he had eventually formed the steel into a Copy-sized version of Shadow Man's armor.
The kid put them on, grinning at the fact that it was a perfect fit. Of course, when he looked at the mirror, he realized that he was missing a rather vital part of his disguise.
Like Father Like SonThe cool winter's breeze was finally starting to sink it's teeth into the citizens of Monsteropolis. The holidays were fast approaching, and with each passing day, the more frantic the citizens were. Mother Nature had felt gracious enough to bestow upon the people and robots below a gracious gift of snow.Like Father Like Son3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
...Well, gracious to some. The children loved it. The adults, not so much.
But amongst those happy to see the snow was none other than Aircon Man. Yes, he'd seen snow plenty of times before, but snow was a sign of cold.. something he enjoyed very much. He ventured out in the snow to go to Wind Man's place. He'd been there a couple of times before, learning how to cook from him. He'd taken up a job at the Asian themed robot's restaurant after all. And since Aircon didn't know a whole lot about cooking.. why not learn from the man in charge himself?
It was still rather awkward for Aircon t

Saturn was seated on a chair in the living area, a problem currently perplexing him. His hair.. He really wanted to do something about his hair, but what? He'd looked through pictures of various hairstyles, and not a single one interested him. Of all the problems out there in the cosmos.. why did his hair have to come as the biggest for him today?
The Stardroid Commander, Terra, was also in the living area, playing with his hair. Saturn stared in envy. The Earthy Stardroid didn't have the slightest bit of trouble with his hair. Why was his own hair causing so much difficulty!?
The Saturnian approached his commander, the other glancing up towards him as he twirled his hair a bit with his index finger.

Jovian storm-red eyes glanced around. Jupiter had been seeking Terra for some time. After all, it was the time of day he usually came around, seeking a mission from Terra to keep him on track. After all, he had a short attention span and tended to seek fights if he didn't have a mission. Either that or he'd retreat to his nest with some KFC.
He tromped around the ship until he heard one last snip, then an "aaaaah." Terra. He'd found Commander Terra! He could finally ask for a mission!

In the dead of night in Dream Land, a mysterious, gigantic, beanstalk-like vine had rose from the ground; among those chunks of rock held aloft by the structure was Castle Dedede and Kirby's House. A limbless spider-like creature descended upon the small dome-like house. Quietly, he hovered near the window to the house of the little pink puffball, watching him slumber quietly without a care in the world. At least, not at that very moment. He cocked an eyebrow.
"Is... Is this little thing...the hero of the Lower World I was told about?" Pondered the entity. "Hmmmm... He will have to do, I cannot afford to be stalled here." Quietly, the spider-like entity crept on into the single-room house, quietly chuckling.

No-one left to talk to
Just sitting here in silence
Music is dead to me
This little world I made
Away from all that I hate
A world where pain doesn't hurt
but where it is the sweetest releasing bliss.
Here I can kill myself gently.
My friends have all gone
My enemies hide at every corner
My home has become a prison
All I want,
Is to fall gracefully.
I'll cut the ties to this body
My torturer of 16 years
I'll make my wrists a work of art
As my lungs explode underwater.
Theres four reasons to save my life.
Let's pretend I'm fine.
Keep these suicide dreams to myself.

You can see me broken on the floor,

I am broken to you,
So toss me out.
Toss me out like a ragged doll,
Worn and frayed at the edges.
So toss me out,
Leave me there in the ice-y rain.
But please understand,
I don't want to go,
Don't want to leave you behind.
Even though I'm broken to you,
I still wish to be with you.
Don't toss me out,
Just take me, sweetly
Into your arms again
Unbreak me, make me whole again.
I'm still just shards on the floor.
Just shards of my self,
Shattered upon the earth.
So please, just take me in your arms
Smother me in your warm embrace.
Take me, make me, unbreak me
And in your eyes,
So, softly you can tell me,
So, lovingly you can show me.
Through your eyes, what have I become?

After my capture during the hunt, which my parents were killed, I was dropped off at a house.

On a cell phone the boy had arranged the exchange, and me sitting in the small animal cage listened. The dog in front of me was napping.

The smell of dust, mold, and human was suffocating. Click, my door was opened and I walked out. Looking down at me frowning was a man in his early twenties, dark eyes and curly dark hair; he was clean-shaven, but smelled of drugs, alcohol, and other humans I looked abou

Your haunting images have flown through this door
I've seen death to close, for too long
Your dark mirrored walls,
are a reminder
Of the person I've become
Drifting through this life
Coursing down these stairs
If I had as much too say at all,
it would be because of you
Wouldn't dream of time spent wasting
Nor could I forget,
the things I've put myself through
Torn and wrapped inside out
They've been looking out the wrong window.
The shadows lay as a never ending blanket
Wrapping everything underneath
The blood shall never be seen,
the traces of her last glowing warmth
Stolen in the passion of the night
But for such a passion,

Words whisper in and out of my ear
But without you here, without you next to me saying them
Chills run up and down my spine
But you're not there touching my bare skin
I can still taste you, your kiss still fresh upon my lips
How can this be?
Are you a ghost hiding behind me
Speaking quietly into my ear....
Your breathing is still felt on my neck
The smile is still placed on my face
Am I dreaming?
Or am I returning back where my fantasies lay hidden
You here, you standing next to me, talking to me
It drives me insane
My skin strives for you
Just for you to hold me close, so I can hear your heart beat
So I can hear you breath...
Slowly I fall, faster and faster
My thoughts only containing you
My dreams have only you to seek for
To see you, to kiss you....
Future fantasies lay in front of me
Still the feeling of going mad lies in the pit of my mind
But this feeling of love surrounds my body
And somehow my fears fade slowly away
Because your hand has reached out for mine
Calling me softly

Riddles with much mis(t)ery; stress and problematic confusion, I was blinded to your adoring gaze.My Love For You10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
However distracted that gaze may have been.
Though I was deeply in love, it was among the most stressful times of my life. But then as the sands of past months eroded away, my feelings for you resurfaced. I knew your past love was over, and that perhaps even my sudden singularity was a part of the reason.
With my curiosity strengthening the way that I felt about you, I began to explore the possibility of calling you my girlfriend.
The weeks past, and doubt began to grow within me. Perhaps it was the three years of life between us, or the fact that I was playing right into the much dispised 'rotation' theory that fed this doubt. In either case, my hesitations were born of w
