"Sirius... you're an absolute idiot. You do know that, right?"
"Oh, come now Moony, it wasn't that bad. Looking back, it was actually rather sweet!"
"Oh yes, almost getting killed is very sweet."
Sunlight slanted warmly through the high, thick glass windows that peppered the walls of the Gryffindor boys' dormitory, its liquid gold rays illuminating the tousled heads and shoulders of two of Hogwarts' most famous pranksters. One, a black-maned young man, had a slightly tanned arm encircled about the other's shoulders, and was nuzzling his neck playfully. The other, caramel-haired and much paler, looked like he was doing his best not to smile... and failing. The corners of his lips kept on twitching upward rebelliously so that he had to look away from the other just to keep up the appearance of being annoyed. He didn't bother extricating himself from the other's grip, though.

"It's always nothing. Com'n, tell me." With that she snatched the notebook from him and caught him offguard. She was only able to read the first few words that he snatched it back from her.
"Love doesn't exist?" She asked in a confused tone
"It's nothing alright!"
"It is something. What are you not telling me?"
"I said it's NOTHING" a rage in his voice. She was taken aback by his anger that she couldn't reply in fear.
After a few minutes of silence, he finally spoke.
"I'm sorry. I shouldn't of reacted the way I did."
"It's okay. It's not your fault."
"The thing is I don't want people to know how I feel about things."
"You can tell me. You know you can trust me. Please tell me. I want to help you. How can you say love doesn't exist. What about your mom? A mom always loves her child."
"My mom left me and my dad when I was five for another man." His reply was cold.
"I'm sorry. I....I didn't know. But your dad loves you right?"

As you wiped away my tears
You're my first love
As you started hating me
As you started ignoring me
As you started hurting me
You're my first heart breaker
As you let go my hand
As you left me behind
As you stole my soul
As you walked away

I feel the love inside of me growing
I know that the hopes in my heart are lies
But I can't keep myself from loving you
Why did I choose to love someone that doesn't even see me?
I wish you could see the love I hold for thee
I wish you could know how many nights I cried
How my dreams you stole
I need you because I feel so alone
I need to be in your embrace
I've always thought that you loved me
But I cannot stand it anymore
The pain I feel broke me down
But you don't even know that you tore me apart
Manika: Teddy's ConfessionManika: Teddy's Confession11 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
IT WAS SAID that Manika had been crafted out of pain. As a means of expressing whatever it was that had begun to claw at the insides of a man's heart.
And he – our "Father", the one being who created us, was so much like the Christian God who made the world and man upon that world, all because He could not think to exist in nothingness and the void of utter silence.
And so, upon carving out two eyes, he bestowed upon a simple block of wood the vision of something so close to whatever it is that makes humans what they are. By painting these eyes, he opened up the worlds and layers that show the complexities of a soul yet to be in full fruition.
By shaping lips that did not exactly smile nor frown, he gave the form a personality and a voice to speak for it. The purpose of such a shape, was to mimic people as truthfully as he could – for no one person was always altogether happy, nor always altogether sad.
He also gave her two hands, his way, perhaps, of showing his own need to

In the three years Ive known him Ive insulted him and hurt his feelings too many times.

A transgender person is someone who feels like

I have something difficult to tell you. It would probably be best if you read this letter alone.
I've tried so many times to tell you, but I could never find the words. Finally, I decided that I was going to tell you next week when I came down. It would have been bad timing, but I felt that you deserved to hear it in person. I agonized over how and when to tell you and . I lost sleep. I lost my appetite. Every few days, I would just break under the stress. That's why you're receiving this letter. I couldn't handle telling you in person. It's the coward's way out and I hope you'll forgive me for it. But I feel this is the only way I can find the words and the courage to do this.
As far back as I can remember, I've always felt different from everyone else. I suppose a lot of kids feel that way, but for me it seemed to go beyond simple growing-up awkwardness. It was a feeling as if there was something wrong with me. But being so young and not even sure what the feeling was, I ch

Top ten things that teachers do that if students did, would get them in trouble.
Teachers think that its ok to walk into class ten minutes late and give the excuse that they had something urgent to do. Please. I dont know about your school system, but when we are tardy (unexcused) we have an automated voice notification system that calls our house and tells our parents. Now considering this, Our campus consists of four different buildings that we have a matter of ten minutes to walk to in order to get to our class. One of the walks is a quarter of a mile! And thats just outside. Try walking through a big crowd of students who dont think they have a class to get through. Its murder. So when a teacher that doesnt have any walking to do, and practically no reason to leave thier room is tardy, who calls thier parents?

Seeing the other kids, with no worry
How you wish you could be like that
And not be cursed with such a disease
Feeding yourself with lies that you're perfectly fine
Nothing to worry about
But inside you know there is nothing you can do to save yourself
How the pain weighs down on you
How you wish you could change it
So many trips to the doctor
So many machineries all around you
But the results are the same
With a deadliest death of all
Your life comes to a tragic end
Those sweet innocent eyes close forever
That helpless body fades
And it is buried 6 feet under the ground
You'll never be forgotten
Because you are a hero
A hero who fought the biggest battle of all
Cancer is the enemy
You gave your all
Even if you couldn't win
Trust me, you didn't lose
No matter how much time passes
We will never forget you
You'll always be alive in our hearts
In every breath we take your rememberance will be present
This might be goodbye
