In the early hours, when he is still asleep, she begins counting the tiny black and white tiles plastered to the ceiling of their flat. Some are chipped, some are covered by a layer of dust, and some are not tiles at all, but cockroaches in disguise. By 143 he has stretched his arms and kissed her neck, by 206 he has tied his shoes and lit a cigarette, and by 262 he's always gone. She knows that the smell of coffee will dissipate by 329 and that if she can bother getting out of bed to call her worried mom for once, or even just go to the damn bathroom, he will be back by 2338.
If she counts slowly.
Sometimes, late at night, when she has named all of the constellations she knows without the familiar sound of his second-hand car pulling into their garage, she likes to sit and ponder, with a bottle of Jack Daniels, where she went wrong. She wonders if by living here with him she's wasting away the best years of her life, years she could have spent at college in order to get a job and b

lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
Live life by day,
Slave to the whims of the day.
Control life by night,
Master of the thoughts of the night.
Look though the seams,
But your not sure what is seen…
Peer into your mind,
And live the Dreamer's Dream.
Am I alive?
Is my body really alive?
Is this my world?
And do I belong in this world?
Where the blind man sees,
And the lame go running though the trees.
Reach into your heart,
And find the Dreamer's Dream.
When children smile,
And all is good just for a while.
Look into your soul,
Then you'll know,
This is just a Dreamer's Dream.
Demon Lovers part 1Top was soooooo busy having intercourse. And by intercourse I mean sex. I mean, sure, it was his job (He's an incubus, of course) but after a while, everything gets old. Even making love. Especially making love. He tried every toy, every position, but all of them bored him. Even reverse cowgirl, which used to be his favorite.Demon Lovers part 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
His (Current) partner was a womens named Emily. She was attractive . But even her delicate beauty failed to inspire him. Still, at least she seemed to be enjoying it, and food (Incubi eat sex) was food.
"Ooooooooooh! Ah! Ah! Not .. There!" she shouted as they made amazing love. Suddenly she died. She was still warm and Top wasn't exactly paying attention so he didn't notice until he realized she was no longer making her delicious moans of pleasure. He had accidentally sucked out all her love energy! He was just that good . In bed?!

"I'm sorry "
Cass sat on the bed as he looked over Sam as he slept. He looked down at Sam's naked form as he laid in bed, tired from their late night session of love. Cass rubbed his hand over Sam's hair as he looked his body over for love bites. Sam turned at the touch cuddling closer to Cass for more warmth.
Baby, I love you, your are my life
Cass smiled at Sam's actions, and he got up and pulled the covers over Sam. He started to collect his things as he goes around the room, he stops at the dresser and sees pictures of him and Sam.
The happiest moments weren't complete if you weren't by my side
You're my relation and connection to the sun, with you next to me there's no darkness I can't overcome you are the raindrops

Loss of Me
from Final Fantasy IX
lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
This is a tale, a tale of a man,
iron of glove, and blade in his hand.
Devoted his life to false faility,
duty or death, and blind loyalty.
This is the way, he remained to this day,
`til a young woman showed him the way.
Made him realize, he had his own will
his inner self doubt he was able to kill.
Ill give my life to thee,
my love for all eternity.
And though it may be hard to see,
You grieve for the Loss of Me
If we separate and then,
Ill fight a thousand men.
Just to be by your side,
with my courage and pride.
This is a tale of the Queens Royal Guard,
who over the years, her heart has grown hard.
Lives out her life, on the Queens behalf,
choosing the drawn out war beaten path.
This is the way, she remained to this day,
til a bold knight, showed her the way.
Made her realize, to speak her own mind
and the soul underneath was both gentle an
Its a Puppy's LifeIts a Puppy's Life10 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The group of farmers stood in a circle around the cowering puppy that had crawled out of the forest. The puppy was a fluffy white thing, and very small, with brilliant golden eyes. The white fur was not why they stared though; it was the odd red markings in his muzzle and the crescent moon on the pup's forehead that had them curious.
"Never saw a dog looked like this before." One young man said as he knelt and stared into the frightened pup's eyes.
"Me neither. Those eyes are sorta creepy. They don't look right, somehow." The puppy whined, as if it understood them and backed away from the men who were talking.
"Hey you're scaring the poor thing…" said a little girl as she knelt and held her hand out to the puppy. Its long ears flattened to its head but it sniffed and crept closer to her. Her wide brown eyes sparkled with a kindly curiosity as she stroked the puppy's silk soft fur. She smiled at the lost puppy and was rewarded with a soft little tongue licking her fingers.

The Forum According to Curran
Creation- or the First
In the beginning, there was nothing.
Then, there was more nothing.
Then there was someone's dog, but it went away really fast with our slipper.
And there then was still nothing.
Then there was a great blank stare.
The Great Blank Stare loomed over the blank, gray-green world and decided that something had to come. It took him three days. Well, we SAY it took three days, but who is to say what time is to the Great Blank Stare. To it, there was no day, par se. So let's just say it took a certain amount of time of random thoughts going in and out of its orange head for the decision to be made. Having decided, it then set to work creating the realm of Forum, and the many nations and inhabitants to populate it.
First were the Forums, many in number and layered like the frosting on a bundt cake. The Deviants realm, with its wild growth and cycle of life and death. The fiery and dangerous lands of Complaints, where only the stou

"Sora… Kairi... I'm sorry…"
It was complete and total, encompassing and engulfing his entire being. His limbs felt weightless and detached, the sensation of free floating churning his innards uncomfortably and spinning his head through a dizzying vortex. Everything was going numb, and if not for the void of black he was sure his skin would appear blue from cold.
He vaguely entertained the thought that maybe he was in fact dead. Somehow it wouldn't surprise him that his own version of purgatory would be to become pitched into the lonely, silent darkness. To be swallowed whole by the one thing that he thought could lift him… only for it to cause his complete downfall in the end.
"Is this the world of death?"
The black began to shift and swirl, a vague grey fizzing in front of him. His body felt heavy again, dragging him slowly downward as the void before him began to materialize into a recognizable form. A white path winded endlessly

Dusk fell quickly, causing the lone shadow of a man's figure against the wall of a meticulously decorated study to become distorted in an almost gruesome manner. It were as if the darkened shape somehow revealed the true nature of the person it was cast from. The brunet sat alone, as he was accustomed to after all these years. The reclusive man's name was Alexi Vladimir Petrov. He was young, wealthy, intelligent and preserved perfectly in his 25 year old lean yet muscular frame. He had always been considered eccentric by his family and therefore kept his distance from most of them. His servants were the closest thing he had ever had to family. Even in the vampire realm, he was always considered an outcast.
The beautiful man was turned only a few years back, but had become a cruel and vicious predator quite rapidly. Tonight, he would be headed toward the club scene. There were always plenty of pretty boys to choose from there. He normally chose

It was precisely eleven oclock in the morning on September the first, and the corridor was suddenly quite empty.
Albus Severus Potter looked around him in some consternation, as the floor beneath him gave a shudder and the Hogwarts Express set into sudden motion. The entire morning had been, as the year before, a flurry of bustle and excitement; packing, racing around finding this and that, running through to the platform, hugging his parents goodbye, following his relatives onto the train
But now said relatives had disappeared. James had raced off as soon as hed spotted some friends, leaving his little brother behind without a thought.

Quick the DonkeyQuick the Donkey9 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
The donkey's name was Quick.
His front hooves were neat and dexterous and opposable, and his back hooves were the size of dinner plates and had unassuming steel shoes. He had a pale grey hide and pale pink nostrils, and ears like enormous fringed fans, and if you lifted up his cowl far enough, you would find large, slightly worried brown eyes, with the devastatingly long eyelashes reserved for beauty queens and large ungulates. He was a small, neat-footed donkey who kept his elbows tucked in and could vanish into a crowd much more easily than a bipedal donkey wearing a yellow robe with checkerboard edging had any right to do.
He had a goldfish in a plastic bag. She was a small, neat-finned goldfish with kinder eyes than are usual among fish. Quick was only guessing about the "she" pronoun. He wasn't sure how to tell the difference, or if it mattered one way or the other. Well, it probably mattered to another goldfish. He wasn't sure if the kindness of the goldfish's eyes was really the

Laura was a girl
Living with her friends
On an island in the sea
No cities for miles
Just a town
Reached by boat
Prince was a boy
Crampt in a room
In a thriving city
No quiet he could find
In the busy streets
Filled with noone
They found each other
Through sheer force of will
Two lonely souls
In the silence
In the bustle
Of their lives
Their dreams filled
With visions of the other
Flashes of their lifes
They came to love
And longed to meet
But that was impossible
They were in different worlds
The tropical paradise
The neo utopia
Seperated not only by seas
But by the ends of their worlds
For their kingdoms would never meet
But these kingdoms of light and dark
Seperated eons ago
By the selfish ancients
Who sought to keep light for themselves
Could be joined
There was a fruit on her island
Shaped like a star
The legend said
That if two shared the fruit
Their destinies would be joined foverever
By the paopu
She stood on night on the beach
Looking up at the stars

Introduction to "The Gathering"
"The door was shut, but was anything solved? Seven years later, the darkness begins to creep back out of the shadows, but with it creeps out many familiar faces. Where were they? How have they changed? And most importantly, where are they going? Can you hear the call…? The Gathering is upon us…"

The Gathering contains spoilers to Kingdom Hearts, Another Side Another Story (the US secret ending), and Deep Dive (the secret ending only available on Japan's Final Mix version).

my belly burns with reckless fire
consuming thoughts of suicide
and in my eyes a tortured soul
is forced now to decide
she cannot breathe the murky air
or drink the putrid water
she only hides inside my mind
the devil's only daughter
one day she will reveal to me
the secrets locked inside
and hide no more inside my thoughts
but deep inside the shadowy realm
my dark one sits and waits
for one love strong to come and take
her hand and lead her through the gate
outside she'll sit beneath the stars
wondering at their beauty
nothing like this ever seen inside my mind
for there it's dark and gloomy
he'll kiss her hand and touch her face
she'll cry her bloody tears
and he will hold her close and then
erase her morbid fears
so will you lead me home, dark prince?
and take my pain away?
i cannot live forever in shadows
where all the devils play

Made me weak in the knees
My cheeks would blush a scarlet red
Like a wild drum, my heart started to beat rapidly
If you ever looked my way
I hid my face in shyness
While giggling softly like a preteen
Smiling from cheek to cheek
I can only imagine, you and me
Hand in hand, walking the streets of Paris
Side by side without a care in the world
Proclaiming to everyone our love for each other
You serenade to me the most beautiful love song
No words can describe how magical your voice is
Those deep, harmonious tones can tame the wildest beast
Each angelic note is as heavenly as the next one
But this is only the dream of a love struck girl
In reality, we can never be together

No wonder they call this feeling a crush

It had happened again. Another fight, another slammed door, another weeping session. It was the same thing every weekend, but this time, there was something else, something different. This time, there was a feeling in the air; a sadness so deep that even his alien heart felt it. He tried to ignore it, tried to go back to sleep, but it was no use.
Cursing vilely in his own language, he jumped out of the tree he called home, and stalked into the house. He paused to try to remember where her room was, and heard something odd. He followed the sound into the main room of the house, and was forced to listen once more. He found her sitting curled up behind a chair, in the corner. She was rocking and crying almost silently, though with sobs so deep they threatened to break her ribs. He'd never seen her like this; she'd always seemed so

The buildings were bowing as far as their lightning rods would allow them,
laying their pot plant leaves before my feet,
amidst the donkey's traffic grunt.
I had been given my messiah,
wedged between two glossy slips of cardboard.
I'm too shy with strangers to say no;
I gained faith thanks to the selfless persistence
of a ten year old.
Except when I closed my eyes
I saw only momentary multi-hued memories
on the back of my lids.
But that's okay, that's okay,
I had a smile on my face
and god in my hand.
I opened my eyes to:
eager profit prophecies dangled as neon halos,
perched to guide imprudent eyes
- since when were inanimate objects so attention-needy? –
and I had stumbled
But that's okay, that's okay,
because once I coughed it away
I was still there with my glossy book
burning like money in my pocket.
