A Girl Named DilanThe class was in an uproar. Nothing the teacher did or said could calm the waves of talking that naturally made their way to the front. Unfortunately the situation had been like this for a few days ever since it had been announced they would be receiving a transfer student. The entire class was curious as all they had been given was a name, Dilan Rembrant. Their curiosity however would soon come to an end because the new kid was scheduled to come that very day.
"I wonder what he looks like" one girl wondered dreamily.
"I hope he plays basketball" commented a boy to his friend, "We could use another player."
"Shh! He'll be here any minute" said yet another quite ignored voice.
Everyone had their own opinions and ideas on what they thought the new student should be like and were sharing those opinions whether they were wanted or not. All noise stopped though when the door to the classroom opened.

Familystuck: Chapter 2Two months on, Eridan and Feferi were exhausted with all the hard work they'd had to undergo to prepare for the babies' arrival. Eridan had been out searching for potential baby supplies, from abandoned stuffed whales to lost bottles. He also was given two cots by his father, one deep purple and the other tyrian, since there were two babies arriving. Eridan knew his father had been a sensible, down-to-Alternia troll, but in his opinion, the fellow's decision to include their blood colours proved he had no creativity at all.Familystuck: Chapter 23 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
He had given them the cots shortly after Eridan and Feferi dropped by the house to give him the good news. To his son's embarrassment, he had insisted on holding an exquisite banquet to celebrate the occasion, which he was pretty sure was just him showing off to Feferi. Eridan presumed his father had not actually taken the time to ask if she was okay with the idea, since it had been a knee-jerk reaction.
He was grateful for the cots, but declined to tell his father

The blonde scientist turned her bright green eyes towards the door to her lab to see Demyx standing there. The young blonde Nobody stood with her hands behind her back, her feet only centimeters from the entrance to the door, but not on or over it.
"You can come in you know." Vexen said rolling her eyes at the girl's foolishness, "Now what do you want?"
"I-I think there's something wrong with me." The girl sounded nervous and worried, but Demyx had been known to make something out of nothing.
"And what do you think is wrong with you?" the blonde woman asked humoring her.

Familystuck: IntroFeferi had stormed off in a huff and Eridan wasn't sure what to do. His matesprit had gotten in an argument with him over a subject they had tiptoed around for quite a while, of all things children. Troll biology dictated that the more assertive of two partners regardless of gender would be the one in the relationship to carry the children. Eridan with his pompous, everyone is beneath me attitude was the more assertive of the two if only by a little and seadwelling males had a way of being the one to get pregnant regardless so it was clear that he would be the one to get pregnant. However Her Imperious Condescension or in this case Her Imperious Condescension To Be was more than just a title. It was also a set of genetics that came with the very rare blood colour. Thanks to those genetics Feferi would get pregnant as all the Condesces had despite Eridan's assertiveness.

Eridan had been extremely glad he had taken Kanaya's advice. He had learned long ago never to doubt her and there was a good reason why. Her advice had helped him more than make up with Fef. They had taken the first step towards producing the heir she longed for and he couldn't be happier. Who cared if they both got pregnant? With the mood he was in the more the merrier. As she snuggled closer to him in her sleep he felt like the happiest troll in the world. With her by his side he fell asleep happy.
The next morning wasn't quite as magical as the night had been. It had unfortunately started with Feferi waking up abruptly to throw up. Eridan had barely gotten there in time to hold her hair and to empty the contents of his own stomach as soon as she finished emptyin

"Uh.., Superior?" she tried, "Superior?"
"Yes?" he turned to the short, blue haired woman.
"Uh..." Zexion looked around nervously not sure how to say it, "Kadaj wants you to call her."
"That silver haired nuisance?" he put kindly in the presence of his wife, "What does she want?"
"That's for her to say" she replied sharply, "Good day Superior" Without another word she walked out of the room followed be Saïx.

Maternity Leave ch. 5Xion was worried. It had been nearly three weeks since she had found out she was pregnant and she still hadn't seen Riku. Everyone else seemed so happy at the same news. Some like Zexion, Demyx, and Namine were overjoyed. Others like Xaldin and Saïx were apprehensive about becoming mothers. And others, that is Larxene, were outwardly angry, but in reality didn't really mind even if they themselves hadn't realized it yet. At least Larxene had Axel there for her through this whole ordeal. Even when she did get to finally see Riku who knew when and frequently he'd be able to sneak into the castle.Maternity Leave ch. 55 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The fact that Xion was seeing Riku and that he was sneaking into the castle wasn't exactly a secret. All the women knew as well as Roxas and Xigbar who Demyx promptly told shortly after finding out. They all kept this a secret from Xemnas figuring that it was harmless, but something their Supe

Lovino knew who was calling before even looking at the caller ID. Somehow he just knew. It had been one of those days. Casimiro had been particularly fussy and Antonio annoyingly cheerful. He knew exactly whose cheery voice would be at the other end.
"Hello" he decided he would answer after all.
"Hi fratello!" Feliciano's sickeningly sweet voice was exactly what he had expected to hear, "I've had an amazing idea! Do you want to hear it?"
"Yes, what is it?" he rolled his eyes. Lovino was all too used to humoring his brother.

Bad Day-Daniel Powter
Kadaj got into her jeep after leaving Zexion at the mart. She sighed, starting the vehicle and turning down the street towards the house that her brothers shared with her. Loz and Yazoo were her brotherstechnically her twinsand they had basically nothing in common with her. They were macho, Loz was always making a mess, and Yazoo was annoyingly neat. Kadaj liked to joke that she was the perfect balancea comment that usually was seen as truth.
I can't stay in that house much longer, she mused. They're too aggravating. I need to branch off and make my own career. Both brothers were hit men for anyone with enough money. She liked cooking, painting, or anything that allowed her to create something out of seemingly nothing. Yazoo liked to tell her that she had a "god-complex," but the man was too busy reading a book on murder to pay much attention.

"That is the coolest thing ever!" Gilbert exclaimed almost a little sadly as the fight ended, the loser making his way to the loser's bench, "Bruder may have lost, but that was pretty awesome. Not as awesome as me of course, but still awesome."
"Hey, I wonder if you and Ludwig can do that unification thing?" replied Matthew.
The Prussian clearly thought it was worth at try as he ran to find his brother yelling "Hey West!" When he found Ludwig it took him through out most of the next match to convince him to try.

Kadaj's Strife part 3
Kadaj sat on her bed staring out the window at the ocean shore lined by buildings. Everything but the reflecting lights glowed pink from Kingdom Hearts, setting the mood for her thoughts. She was a brand new cell phone in her hands, pulling the antenna in and out repetitiously. She was mulling over her situation in a bit of a daze. I don't understand what's happening anymore. The woman had been spending nearly every moment with Cloud. She was sure her honorable reputation was taintedalmost everyone assumed they were fooling around behind Tifa's back. For some reason, Barrett ferociously stood up for her, saying she was working at the times in question. But he knew he was lying and stopped meeting her eyes when they would talk. The only way she knew how to pay him back was to take on double shifts and refusing to sleep with cloud, at least until he broke things off with Tifa.

Kadaj put on her boots and grabbed her camo-colored, pull-string gym bag that was her make-shift purse off the bed and fetched the keys to her jeep before heading out to the black vehicle.
As she left the apartment she saw Yuffie pull up on her motorcycle with Leon, Cloud and Tifa followingeach on their individual bikes.
