This time, she pictured it before her favorite church. The church was actually the most difficult part the angel came easy to her now.The Fight4 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
She fought back her tears. She would tell everyone who asked that the angel was her. It was her past, her present, and most likely also her future. Drawing half complete, she put down the pencil and toyed with the small knife she kept on her desk. Staring out of the window, her mind went blank. There was no thought, only feeling.
The blood in her veins felt like poison, burning and clawing its way through her body. Her heartbeats felt like painful drums, every single one pushing that poison deeper and deeper. She felt like there were ants beneath the skin of her wrists. The only thing that helped against the itch, was slicing them with the knife. She had never dared that before so she did the

I will not masquerade as a heroine, as that would encourage the villain to target me first. I'll let the Hero take point.
I will not join the side of the Villain. He would either be abusive towards me, or I would be killed in the crossfire of his and the Hero's epic final battle.
If we are attacked, I will be sure to give at least one loud shriek so the Hero's natural instinct to protect damsels in distress will kick in and I'll have a nice solid shield of flesh swinging a sword around for me and attracting our attacker's attention while I quietly dispatch the enemies I can reach while staying behind him.
I WILL NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH THE HERO.
I WILL NOT HAVE SEX WITH THE HERO. Doing such would make him declare me his one true love, and he would spend all his time trying to convince me to leave my rougish ways behind to become the ideal woma

The bells of The Maiden's Fancy bellowed through the decks of the ship as it came to a full stop at the docks of Booty Bay. The last of the few passengers aboard grabbed their belongings and shuffled to the pier. There were a few scattered merchants, adventurers and downright madmen among the group, all with their own agenda to implement in the popular seaside town. Three in particular were there for a "true" purpose. Two humans and an orc, clad in somewhat faded, yet still eye-catching, purple robes exited the ship with large packs of supplies. Immediately upon setting foot on the wooden docks of the town, they gave each other a quick nod and darted to the first major establishment they could find.
Back on the boat, the ship's final passenger was making his way off. A short goblin, shorter than the norm, muttered unintelligibly to himself as his flat feet loudly slapped the wood as he tromped to town. Unlike the business-minded goblins of the bay, this new arriva

Wyk 'n' NyxiSometimes sisters fight. The reasons can vary from time to time, from simply not seeing eye to eye, jealousy, envy... really, all the sorts of disagreements you could expect from siblings. Sometimes they forget that they are sisters, and hands become claws, nails instruments to scar and flay the flesh, to let lessons learned linger for all to see. Sometimes they are light, amusing, pillow fights or simple pushes and teasing. Sometimes they are even simpler than that, yet so much more complicated... whispers in the ears of friends, secrets shared at a table that were not meant to be shared.Wyk 'n' Nyxi5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The gray air smoldered around the camp. The yips and snaps of dogs, along with the occasional neighs from the makeshift stables, could be heard over the crackling and popping of many fire pits. Roman soldiers, adorned in their armors, which shine in the morning light, sit tensely around the fires, some on stones, logs, and others just sitting on the ground. Most haven't eaten their breakfasts of pork or beef, as their adrenaline has filled them with only one insatiable urge. The urge to kill. The eve of a possible battle was always quite a site to see.
The generals quarters, the best tents in the camp, were on the hill that overlooked all of the other, meeker tents. The generals' tents were ornate with gold and purple dyes mixed around the entrances and edges. Tall poles, topped with different golden animal figures, stood erect at the entrances to each tent. They swayed slightly as a chilling breeze swept through the air. The general, Gaius Septimus Meridiu

"Hinata, will you marry me?" A much more mature Naruto asked a much older, but still flustered, Hinata. The Hyuga party fell speechless along with the pearl eyed kunoichi whose surprised eyes traveled from the engagement ring she held to Naruto's face and back again to the ring. Before she could respond, a chair loudly clattered to the floor taking the attention of the formerly silent room that began to buzz with speculation on what would happen next.
The man who had stood up was Hiashi Hyuga, Hinata's father, a look of pure hatred on his face. Naruto quickly stood up pulling Hinata behind him as Hiashi quickly walked across the room towards him.

where the light bulb lurches
over the bed
making love to the dark
huddled against the ceiling
and the blankets all are beaten
like wayward apologies.
Let the clock by his pillow
break the sad news
and tally the lies
of her comings
and their coupling
under the canopy
of weightless flesh
where love once disturbed their sleep
and her arms still ached enough
to break their fall.
For midnight will catch the floor
like it always does
the upwelling of her words
left bristling in the carpet
and send him spilling
in the dark
like blistered silk
setting sadly into the dawn -
just another memory
found missing in the morning.

In early December
Got shot to cinder
We took a blow
That shook our cores
Shattered our minds
And entered our lore
On December the seventh
Japan dropped by
To bomb our ships
And take our lives
We received no warnings
Just stood and died
As those crazy Japs
Took our lives
So many died
Black smoke boiled 'round
To many of our boys
Were placed in the ground
That day we remember
With tears and pictures
With ones we don't know
And hold our chins high
Say "Never again"
Move on with our lives
Make a Japanese friend
Smile and wave
Here in America
We don't forget.
We hold our heads high
Fly our flag higher
Salute to authority
And always Remember

Uzumaki Naruto and Uchiha Sasuke stood 30 feet apart, staring at each other, both were bleeding from their wounds, and suffering from pain, but it didnt show on either of their faces as they ran at each other once again.
You attacked Konoha! Naruto shouted.

And Brother's not the eldest one.

Bilgewater, Part 2The smog had been unusually thick around Kezan lately. Mount Kajaro had begun showing signs of slight activity, as it did on and off over the decades. Large plumes of the blackest smoke and ash reeked out hourly, and combined with the increased industrialization of the goblins, the air was so thick and sky so dark it practically blotted out the sun. The Horde's war efforts in Northrend, having finally started to settle down, meant one thing for many contractors of Kezan; less business. Many goblins found themselves with surpluses of unsellable war supplies, vehicles and ammunition overflowing their towns as the supply took a few extra days to bring to a halt after a contract expired. It took massive amounts of red tape to shut down manufacturing through any cartel, let alone ones overseen by Undermine itself. The goblin government was reluctant to end or slow production, as that meant less income to the state.
