At Pip's exit, Aerin looked around a bit awkwardly. "So "
"If you say anything about me needing furniture too, I'll kick your ass," Damien said out of the blue. Pip had mentioned that morning that Damien needed more furniture since the apartment was extremely bare. He just didn't want to hear it again.
Confused, Aerin just said, "W-What?"
"Uh," Damien turned his head away with a light blush; he'd forgotten Aerin didn't know anything about him and Pip's conversation, "nothing."
Silence settled in between the two friends. Damien could see the emotions of jealousy and worry Pip tried to mask, and it concerned him. Maybe it wasn't a good idea to have let the blonde leave alone with that look on his face, but he knew he would've just gotten a quick lecture on being a good host and ended up staying at the apartment anyway. Confronting him about it would've been a waste of time.

"Don't talk to me about bombs, Alfred! My son NYC has had enough talk of that! This isn't about churches or religion!" she yelled, pounding her fist on America's desk, a stack of papers collapsing to the floor. "This is about people who want to have their love legally recognized and receive all the benefits of being married! It's a part of the constitution; 'The Pursuit of Happiness'!

Ok, prologue of sorts for the stuff I'm writing little drabbles of. I know it's first person and it's out of order and all of that, but Anders wanted me to explain things, so I had to use his voice, and goddammit that man has a sexy voice that I can't not pay attention to, so here is his little bit of stuff .
I am called Anders. Now. It wasn't the name I was born with, but then, I've changed so many times, even since I adopted it, and how many people can claim to be the same person they were when they first became aware of their name? We become the things people label us as. I was labeled "mage" far too long ago to have any attachment to the name I bore when I was born. My lover is "Champion" despite the fact that had she had the choice she would have turned her back on the fate of a city, wanting instead to protect those she loved. My closest friends have borne titles they never thought to - Commander, slave, pirate, guardsman, warden, malificar…

"Oh come on," Jacobi said "I somehow doubt we're going to run into a vicious monster that tracks its prey by the sound of their voice."
Lockwood stopped, and directed her flash-torch back at Jacobi's face; he shielded his one eye from it with his hand, while the augmetic left eye was, of course, unaffected. "No, but I don't think we want security to hear us wandering around with guns out." The Major whispered.
"Fair enough." Jacobi mumbled, and looked on ahead: His right eye was entirely useless in this situation, but the loss of his left eye had blessed him with a bionic replacement capable of viewing in different spectrums. The hall ahead was devoid of activity. It

"Gerard, why didn't you tell me that you were.... that you," Frank laughed at himself and shook his head, "Hah, I just can't talk around you, can I?" Gerard grinned, brushing his blushing cheek, "Awh, don't worry about it, it's cute," Franks cheeks burned, "...so you think I'm cute?" Gerard giggled a little. "You are so adorable, I don't understand how you're even single?" Frank scoffed, "Ya, like that's even true," Gerards expression grew serious. "Don't you say that. Don't you ever ever say that you aren't perfect. It just takes a caring person to realize that, because you are perfect," Frank blushed, a little giggle in his voice, "Ya, so YOU say," Gerard smirked, "Good thing that's all that matters to me," and leaned in planting another kiss on his lips. He couldn't get enough of his taste. Frank didn't seem to mind, intertwining their fingers.

Adam cursed himself for sleeping in, because it meant that he hadn't had time to do his makeup before leaving the house. It also meant that during his first class everyone had stared at him and whispered with each other, not even trying to look like they weren't talking about him.

Dryd did not avert his gaze from the viewport; he found the void soothing, especially when his temper flared.
The woman, Dryd's secretary, placed the file on his desk and scurried out; when Dryd was in a foul mood, it was best not to disturb his contemplations. He knew what mission the after-report was for. Ever since its inception, it had been the mission.
Dryd, of course, also knew what information the report contained. He had requested it only as a formality, as the remnants of Lucjan's TASO cell on Ganf Magna had already confirmed his elimination.

Nine months had passed since his beloved Milessa had become pregnant with his child. Hed been so proud, that almost immediately after, he had conducted a clairvoyance to foresee the childs fate. He was certain it would be a boy, and that boy would grow into a strong man, an Imperial Guard officer of the highest quality.
His friend over in the Adeptus Astra Telepathica, Kryl, had warned him not to take the results too seriously, that they might be wrong. He would have none of that. He was the best psyker on Kuluth! There was a reason why he was the advisor of Lord General Ranc! He was never wrong!

He had always associated her name with the spring. The cherry blossoms that would float through the air while he walked around town, reading his Icha Icha books, reminded him of her. He had always thought that she would smell of the fragrant blossoms, but instead she smelled of sun-ripened strawberries and something sweet yet earthy that he couldn't quite decipher. She had a heat reminiscent to summer and a cold chill similar to winter. In a sense, she reminded him of fall, which was a perfect mixture of the two seasons. She reminded him of the subtle beauty of fall and he found his heart beating like a drum in his chest when he thought of her.
The change that autumn brought about was refreshing to the young kunoichi. The crisp air reminded her, for a reason she couldn't quite place, of a certain Sensei of hers. Perhaps it was the mystery that autumn presented that reminded her of him. She decides to take a seat on a bench

As it so happened, Inquisitor Levys orders were to expand. Because he realized that Raege would have little idea how to begin doing that, he directed her towards the nearest battle.
That so happened to be the world of Matrinar, out near the rim of the Halo Stars. The journey took the better part of a month. Levy had instructed Raege to pick up any guardsmen that were clearly abandoned. The Rapidheart was equipped well enough to provide for a large influx of wounded as well. With these instructions, Raege set out.
As soon as the Rapidheart had entered the Imperial Navys safe zone, Raege set out aboard a bulk freight lifter. From there, she and her unit shuttled to the nearest fight.
