Mutti's hands are cold, Ansel. Help me warm them up "
An explosion of shouts erupted from outside, sending torrents of cries that murdered the silence that once ruled before. The young Schütze's eyes snapped open and he sluggishly rolled to his side, finding himself back in the tent. At first, his surroundings were nothing more than splotched colors swaying back and forth. He carefully sat up, a hand hovering an inch over his eyes. The words grew louder; one of the voices sounded familiar. Sitting still, he felt around for anything to help him stand. His fingers brushed against the rough wool of his blanket, the biting cold of the ground, and finally the smooth yet icy texture of his rifle barrel. He shivered at the touch; what he wouldn't give to get his gloves back. Firmly placing the butt of the rifle on the ground, he gave a mighty heave to his feet. His movement was too fast for his body's liking and he stumbled backwards and out of the t

One day, you will find your own Wonderland."
My father often told tales of an epidemic called the 'Red Scare' and how it tore through the land, turning friends into targets, and bringing forth a new terror to the world. Countries that were once allies in the old war now had each other in their cross hairs. Spies had infiltrated the enemy's land, gathering information for their side. My father, with a flash of disappointment in his tone, told us of how the war soon turned to a standstill, and how no lives were lost, until a single press of a button unleashed Lucifer from Hell. In an instant, children who were walking home from school, mothers who were cleaning house and preparing a roast, and men who were puffing cigars while laughing their cares away managed but a confused glance to the white flash. There were those who were dubbed lunatics by their friends who had registered their loved ones to shelters deep in the earth.

It had been late afternoon when you'd pretty much collapsed on the large four-poster bed in the room Mycroft had deemed yours for the extent of your stay. He’d tired to get you to let some one look you over but you’d refused and asked to be alone so he’d left you with a first aid kit and some pajamas he’d had Anthea pick up since you’d lost your duffle. The only thing you’d felt like doing was sleeping so you’d just flung yourself as is on the bed and had to have been asleep for at least long enough for the soft light of dusk to fall into the full darkness of night. You took a number of deep breaths as you tried to stabilize your brain’s grasp on reality and then carefully readjusted to go back to sleep.Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 602 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Hate To Love Part One (Synacky Mpreg):
Zacky Baker nibbled at his bottom lip as he sat in his BMW, pondering just exactly how he was going to tell his best friend two very important things that he knew that he had to tell him. He also knew that it would be, without a doubt, an extremely difficult task, and he most likely wouldn't be believed on either account.
"How did my life come to this?" Zacky asked himself.

Ziah Baker and Evi Haner lounged around the massive pool that was part of Vengeance Manor, home to Avenged Sevenfold's guitarist Zacky Vengeance, Ziah's older brother.

The windows were dark but it was late and he was probably asleep, so you mounted the steps and pressed the bell but got no answer. You looked to Sherlock and he gave a nod so you tried the door and found it unlocked, Sherlock pushing past you so you were safely between him and John as you ventured forth.Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 402 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Every room was trashed as you moved through them to get a cursory overview of the first floor, going from the front living room to the kitchen, then to a spare bedroom, and finally a small office. Sherlock paused here, something catching his eye as he crouched to examine a few of the many papers scattered about the floor, and you and John exchanged a glance before slipping back into the main room to let him think. You took in the destruction of the room as John wandered into the kitchen and then had a thought- his studio.

In the past three days he’d refused to leave your side, the only reason he wasn’t still in the blood covered clothes from before was due to the fact Lestrade had brought him something clean to put on.Observers- BBC Sherlock x Reader Chpt. 632 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Brian trudged through the trees, into the clearing that had been The Spot for many years. He was a bit confused by Zacky wanting to meet right away and not telling him anything other than it was important. "What's up, Zee?" he asked, sitting on the contorted tree trunk beside Zacky with a sigh.

*Author notes available at the beginning of chapter one*
Note from the translator: This is not a word for word translation. So there will be words missing, or words added when comparing the original. I tried my best not to change the contents. BUT, sometimes I just had to. The thing is that Kyoux plays a lot with form and tense, and that made it that much more difficult to translate. I wanted to leave as much as possible as it was in the original so that the atmosphere and her writing style were reflected. And that might get English people confused sometimes, as it probably would be written differently if the correct English were used. Of course you'll find mistakes in the text, so please, instead of mocking my language skills, just sit back and enjoy a beautiful love story. I decided to try and translate it because I adore their story so much that it would be a pity for other

Brian was nervous as all hell as he ran around like a chicken with its head cut off, making sure everything was absolutely perfect for Zacky when he got home. He was taking a huge step out onto a limb that he prayed wouldn't end up crumbling beneath him. He had this all planned before Zacky had told him that they were expecting a baby. He just hoped that his boyfriend wouldn't assume that he was only doing this because he was pregnant. Brian didn't think he could handle the rejection if Zacky said no. Little did he know that he would end up feeling like everything in the universe was against him.
